Angels & Whiskey starts off with a flash the past. The moment Gabe’s first love is taken from him, the moment when Autumn meets her future husband... the story that all leads to a broken man finding a way to move on and a woman who found a reason to save herself.

When Gabe moved to Vegas as a male escort he had no idea the woman he bumped into at the coffee shop was going to change his life. Unable to get her out of his head, he soon becomes entranced into her world. As Autumn realizes that h

Kimberly Knight did an outstanding job on this book, first of all Angels & Whiskey was not the book I thought it was going to be. It was so much more. I love the title, as you read you'll learn the significance of Angel & whiskey

We first meet Gabe, a captain in the army, & during one event in Afghanistan, his life is destroyed. He drowns himself in women & whiskey in LA where he lives with his best friend Paul. He relocated to Las Vegas

I finished Angels & Whisky with a happy sigh.

An insta love story.

While Gabes journey to finding love again is about moving forward and overcoming his nightmares which is heartfelt, Autumn's journey is about facing her present living nightmare.

The characters:
I was instantly pulled into Gabes story, a man in love serving In Afghanistan with only 6 months remaining of his service. In one night his reason for looking forward to his future vanished.

My 4.5 star review for Angels & Whiskey by Kimberly Knight
Gabriel Hastings is living his dream. Serving his country is something that he was destined to do. Following in his grandfather’s footsteps, he is a United States Army Captain and loving it. What Gabe wasn’t expecting was to fall in love and the last thing he expected was his relationship to be cut short.
What’s a man to do? Well he turns to whiskey to drown out his sorrow and numb the pain making a promise to himself and his h

I have been reading Kimberly Knight since she released her first book a few years ago now and I love that her books are not just fluffy romance novels.

Angels and Whiskey is no exception. Yes, it is a romance at the core, but there is so much more going on with her characters, Gabe and Autumn.

I adored Gabe right from the prologue. Yes, he is sexy alpha, but there is heart and hurt beneath all the alpha.

Autumn is so srong. What she has gone through, is going throug

Miracles do happen and love is a feeling that can be reborn with the right person.

Gabe and Autumn are two characters that deserved true love. Gabe is a man that lost the love of his life in the line of duty. There was not supposed to be any shooting but when they got on site it turned into chaos. Now as for Autumn she was a married and it was a happy one when they were newlyweds but then all that changed from one day to another. He was a very controlling husband that did not allow her to work an

Autumn Jones has the perfect life. Perfect that is, if you're looking from the outside in. She has the beautiful home and the loving husband who wants nothing more than to give her a family...

Advanced Copy Courtesy of Netgalley....:)

I will be honest, when I requested the book from Netgalley, I did not even read the blurb.....reason being I love this author, therefore I knew I would love this book....

Upon starting it I began to get a little nervous as certain red flags started going up of things I usually avoid when reading a book. However the author did such a great job with writing this, that those certain things did not even matter in the end.

That blurb grabbed my attention immediately and thanks to Netgalley for the advanced copy. I sat myself down on a snow day and read this whole book in one sitting. Everything about Angels & Whiskey just "works", from the plot to these character's I was sucked into an all day read-athon.

Gabe, oh you sweet Alpha-male of goodness, was the perfect knight and shining armor that Autumn needed. After being married for three years into an abusive marriage she was plotting her escape route when a ha

Finished this a couple of days ago and really enjoyed it. I have to say I went in without reading reviews so I was shocked to say the least when I read what he did as a job, didn't see that coming, lol. I think THAT distracted me from their actual storyline just a bit. The storyline/timeline namely, itself, progressed pretty quickly and I wasn't complaining, sometimes I need a nice fast paced read instead of a slow burn.

The twist was very interesting and once that came o

Kimberly Knight has done it one again, Angles & Whisky is definitely a must read! I was lucky enough to receive this book as an ARC and couldn't put it down. You can feel the attraction between Gabe and Autumn radiate as you turn the pages, I totally recommend this book!!! My only complaint is that it is going to be a stand alone.

I loved that this story was about two people finding each other, helping each other and removing each other's past demons. All too often authors only write about one main characters having a troubled past when in reality two people are often drawn to each other because they are so similar which often means the other person will likely also have a back story and baggage that they bring to a relationship.

Immediately the author drew me in, the prologue was absolutely heart breaking in describing wh

It has EVERYTHING!!! Love, loss, lust, hate, anger, compassion, tears, laughs, and the hottest sex I have read. I'm sorry but when you read...

"How do you want it?" I asked.
She pulled her head back.
"What?" She blushed.
"Aw, it's no time to get bashful. We're gonna fuck now. How do you want it? Hard or slow?"

Lines like that get your attention. You know the man is good and will please you and you have to know what else he does. I will say, he does some spectacul

Well what can I say....Kimberly Knight has done it again!

I loved this story! It gave me everything I could want in a story...sexiness, drama, angst, hotness, mystery, tears.....and some heart breaking events that made me want to hold a certain character!
The story is based around a chance encounter, a fateful meeting that changed the life of two people showing that no matter how bad life is, no matter how much you think your future is mapped out, that things can change for th

I really enjoyed this book. The attraction between Gabe and Autumn is amazing. At times I didn’t know how things would turn out and I was literally on the edge of my seat waiting to find out.

The book is told through both Gabe and Autumn’s POVs. When the book starts I literally had tears in my eyes. It broke my heart and I wanted to hug Gabe so hard. But then it goes to several years later and Gabe has found a different way to forget his past. I don’t do spoilers so you will have to read to see w

Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

In my opinion, this book is well deserving of 5 Stars and many, many more. I love that it didn't have a cliffhanger and that the story was wrapped up quite nicely with the ending being just that ... an "ending". Gabe was..well he was Holy Hotness propped up on two legs. Alpha male military guys are what fantasies are made of. Am I right? However, he didn't come without his own emotional demons to overcome. Autumn aka Angel was battling a war of h

I have been a fan of Kimberly's writing for a couple of years now and this book was no different I fell for Gabe from the first page. He's a Captain in the Army and whilst serving in Afghanistan he suffers a personal tragedy the only way he knows how to cope is through a bottle of Whiskey. That is until he literally bumps into Autumn a couple of years later after leaving the Army and moving to Vega

This is my introduction to Kimberly Knight's writing and it's been great!!! This book looks at the lives of Gabe and Autumn, how they get to be where they are in this moment, how they find each other and how they build from there. Both characters have endured a great deal and are struggling to find their way again, to find themselves again and maybe in the end to find love and happiness. Excellent character development and a story that progresses naturally. It's filled with emotions and written ...more

This was a really good book. I enjoyed all the characters.

The story was like one you hear everyday. Rich was one character that I did not care for, actually hated him, lol

I just loved Autumn, she was so sweet, sincere, honest, loving, and innocent until she didn't have to be.
Of course Gabe and Paul were awesome. I just fell in love with Gabe. I adore him.

Gabe was a life saving, love making, heart swelling, kind of guy. He is another favorite of mine.

What a great standalone! What these two characters went through to get where they ended up was really an amazing story! They both came from such dark places and to find the light in both of them was beautiful! And if I needed another reminder how this author an write some smokin' hot sex scenes, this was it! Whoa!

Looking forward to whats next from this amazing author!

I loved this latest book by Kimberly Knight! It's my favorite one of hers to date! It was easy to get caught up in the story of Gabe and Autumn. I can't imagine being trapped into an abusive relationship with no way to get free. Thoroughly enjoyed the read and am looking forward to Paul's story! ;)
