Nothing like this has ever happened to me before. It's a fluke. Too much whiskey. Believe me when I say, it will NEVER happen again.

I’m trying not to take it personally. Sh*t happens. It’s not a reflection on me. He claims it was too much whiskey. A one time occurrence. And I believe him.

But then why the hell does it happen a sec

Favorite Quotes:

She leans across the table and lowers her voice. “Erectile dysfunction happens.” Wrong words. So very wrong. If there were a book called The Big Book of Men, the first chapter would clearly state that those two words never be said to any man ever. Ever. It would be the first freaking rule.

One minute, I like her, I think she’s great and the next, I want to rip her head off. If we were in kindergarten I’d think I was in love with her.

A delay with his flight is not helping Jaxson Kay’s nerves. But a stop at the airport bar might either be the best choice or biggest mistake of his night. There Paisley Robins finds the aviophobia stranger attractive, pegging him as a “Model? Firefighter? Cowboy?”

Nope, it turns out Jax, 30, is simply a retail chain manager and how refreshing was that! I really enjoyed reading about everyday people with regular jobs. It also turns out that Paisley, 32, works in the same industry. That’s
I loved it! I wish I had the time to write a glowing review because this book deserved it! It was so funny, so cute, and sooo sexy! I couldn't put it down. And that title...that's a huge part of the fun. If you're looking for a sexy read with a lot of laughs, this one's for you!

Maybe a little crazy to pass the time is just what I need!

This book was EXACTLY what I needed. I was in a tiny funk, but this book had the funny, sweet, and a little steamy that I needed. If you’re looking for a quick read that will make you laugh and sigh, then this book is it.

It was a nice short read, an ordinary people with ordinary jobs. It's about a male lead who couldn't get it up. Of course it would be fun. I laughed so hard.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐+ Limp noodles stars!

“So back to this room thing. Before I say anything, I want to make sure I understand. Do you want us to share a room tonight?” ... “Or are you inviting me to your room for the night?” My stomach flips. It’s the same question but with two very different implications. I’m so turned around and confused, I’m not even sure which is which. I take a deep breath before answering. “The sex one.”

This was ridiculously hilario

Fun book

This was a funny story. I couldn't believe what the Wiskey Sick meant. I thought for sure it has to do with something all together different but nope and it was still funny. I get the fear of flying. I have a son who hates it but when these two get caught in a jam and how they planned to drive together to get where they need to go only to be caught in an awkward situation. Too funny.

I literally howled through most of this book. I’m talking tears rolling down my face. The hero’s internal conversations were so adorable.

This was me.


And me again.


And me again.


And it was like that throughout the book.

I’m not saying it was a masterpiece, but I have to respect an author talented enough to make me laugh. Props to Ryan Ringbloom.

The only thing I could have done without is mentioning his f*ck buddies. They were both sexually experienced and finally
Short, cute and quirky. Some real funny moments in there, but few and far between. It was a little bland on the character and story front.

I do like how Ringbloom employs some realistic moments in her books; the missing condom, the anti-multiple O's, the poking fun at romance books...

"I mean, if you'd rather we could drag this out, make it some angsty drama where we both feel this connection and an attraction but fuck it all up by overthinking and second-guessing."

This was a funny, quick read that I thoroughly enjoyed. Paisley and Jax were a perfect match for each other. Their banter kept me laughing throughout the book. This is a book I will definitely be reading again!

Rom Com at its best! This quick and easy read is laugh out loud funny. Seriously, I chuckled so loud my husband wanted to know what was so funny. I read him the paragraph about Cliff Barstool and after he rolled his eyes he also chuckled.

This epic road trip tale is the perfect balance of pop-culture references, quirky family, and road snacks.

I'm putting this on my TBRAWIHABD (To be read again when in having a bad day) list.

With one miss step after another this is on hilarious book! The antics are done by both of them adding to the fun and confusion!

This was such a cute read! I enjoyed Jax and Paisley. They were both nervous flyers that met in an airport in Miami. Their flight was delayed twice and then canceled. A canceled flight led to an unlikely adventure that blossomed into a beautiful relationship.

I enjoyed Jax as a character. He was kind, seemed like a hardworker, funny and was a complete gentleman. Paisley was just as funny, but more so on the shy end. She had her bold moments after being coached by her friend. The romance was ador

I started the book a little late in the evening and I had to stay awake until I finished it in one sitting.
I was hooked by the storyline, interesting conversation by the characters and situations that were thrown at them.
It kept my attention through the story and I liked how the characters were built.
I was laughing, grinning, at moments confused but all in all I loved the book and even this is my first book by Ryan Ringbloom it won't be my last.

Cute, sweet, & the kind of funny that comes from cringe worthy situations. I loved this easy read, the romance as entertaining as it was steamy, but for me the real winner was the author’s ability to give us two characters who experience real life embarrassments on the road to their HEA. RomCom gold.

5 star review of Whiskey Dick by Ryan Ringbloom


Ryan Ringbloom is a new author to me, however I have listened to both of the narrators Tor Thom and Charley Ongel before.

This was a quick listen with plenty of humour and numerous laugh out loud moments. The chemistry between Jaxson Kay and Paisley Robins is off the charts and both Tor Thom and Charley Ongel portrayed this with a great deal of emotion and passion which really brought the story to life for me.

1st time reading Ryan Ringbloom, love that she is a Jersey Girl, we must stick together, but she is hilarious. This can happen to anyone and it usually does, except for the falling in love part was the most unbelievable part!
A short quick read.

Carol - By far one of the most humorous romance stories I have read. Ryan Ringbloom is one of my favorite go to authors when I am looking for humor in the every day life. She has the ability to turn the ordinary and unfortunate into the extraordinary. Her stories have taught me to laugh in the face of tears because somewhere there is that silver lining.

What a freaking funny rom-com! Jax is stuck in the airport when his flight home is delayed and what better way to spend your time in the airport than at the bar...right? Paisley just happens to be nervous and at the bar also and hopes to pass some time with maybe...Jax?

Oh my goodness I loved this book so much, the storyline was unique and had my attention from the first page. My only complaint is that it ended.

This is my first book by this author and when I say it won't be my last I sincerely mean it. I had a smile on my face throughout and laughed out loud a few times. I especially enjoyed that there really wasn't any sad parts, no broken pasts to get over or major trust issues. This was just plain super awesome reading, a

As always with this author one is never to be fooled by the tales that she spins. In this short but amazing story the author has you wanting to climb into the pages. The author takes you to a whole new world that you want to stay in but hence the real world lurks outside the pages of this amazing story.

Rom Com at it's best. You will laugh out loud just don't be reading it when your in the check out line at the nearest store when the lines are long. I did and when I laughed peop

"I glance down and mentally curse out my deranged dick."

Yeah, that title is an attention-getter, and I just couldn't resist it. This was my first time to read Ryan Ringbloom and it was a delight. A short, sweet, silly comedy of mishaps that could cause some embarrassment if you can't contain your giggles in public.

The witty banter is entertaining and the story moves so fast that it was over before I was ready. But, I'm happy to report that the series continues and there will be an opportunit

Whiskey Dick was everything I wanted and more. I did this crazy thing last year where I read a book out of order. It was Whiskey Chick by the same author and I have been DYING to read more since. I decided to right my wrong and read this one first since I already had heard their background story in Whiskey Chick. I should have known I would laugh so hard I peed a little. I should have known that their five minutes of fame would only be the tip of the hilarity that would ensue, but I didn’t and I ...more

The story Whiskey Dick by Ryan Ringbloom is a romantic comedy. It is the first story I have read by the author. From the very beginning, I was drawn into a book that at times had me with a smile on my face or laughing out loud. I loved the two main characters and how they interact. There are moments that are awkward and silly as well as times when all I could do was shake my head at the situations that occurred. There are times when embarrassment lea
