4.5 Stars!!

Noble Hops is book 3 in the Trouble Brewing series, and cannot be read as a standalone. You should definitely read the first two books in the series, as well as the original series, Irish & Whiskey, which will not be a hardship at all.

The story continues with Nic trying to take down Vaughn and his goons as well as trying to find the moles in the FBI and Nic’s office. All the while, Nic is struggling with his emotions and coming to terms with a secret his fat
4,5 stars

I actually loved this one, but I kind of loved the previous book way more.

It's still packed with a lot of action and some suspense. We get to acknowledge the moles and punish the bad guys. We also get some surprises but to be honest I kind of expected some of them so nothing earth shattering. The ending was sweet and my favorite kind of HEA.

Full review soon.

***3.75 Stars***

Hand on his shoulder, Cam spun him around, cutting off his words with a thief of a kiss - stealing his breath, his heart, his whole world. He could take it all, as long as Nic got to spend the rest of his life tasting his beer on Cam's lips.

I have to be honest, I'm a wee bit bummed. I absolutely ADORE Cam and Nic, but in this final installment of the series, the suspense element completely overshadowed everything. Don't get me wrong, the suspense was really good...but I'm a r
This is the conclusion of the series Trouble Brewing, and wow, what a rush it was! All the questions were answered, all the demons were slayed and all the secrets of the past were laid to rest. This was a real page-turner full of suspense, intrigue and strong men and women working together to uphold the law and protect the innocent.

Nic and Cam live together now and are so happy. Professionally they are the best team there is. Nothing should stand in the way of building their future but it seems
A solid 4.5 star !!!!

I never did manage to write the reviews for either the Irish and Whiskey trilogy or the first two books of this one, despite these couples being some of my favorites of this year. And I couldn’t contain my excitement when I got approved for this advance copy immediately after I requested, because I really have been waiting to know the conclusion for Nic and Cam’s story. All the intrigue that has been slowly building up for two books finally comes to a head here and I had suc

I need more stars! Lordy but this book was good and it perfectly wrapped up the Trouble Brewing series with a comprehensively tight and fast paced plot.

So many times while reading this my heart was in my mouth wondering just where it was going to go next and how our merry band of suits was going to take the bad guy down.

I won't be spoilering anything, but suffice it to say, the pay off is well worth the efforts expended to reach it and Cam and Nic are as solid as the rock of Gibraltar when it co

Rating: 4 Stars – minor quibbles but I loved it to bits

I received a copy of Noble Hops from Carina Press via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
4.5 stars!

Cam and Nic have been a fave couple for me alongside Aiden and Jamie, and finally getting the conclusion to their story was awesome, I couldn't put it down - except for the basic human function of sleeping :P.

Cam and Nic are back in this last installment to finally take down Vaughn once and for all, who has been a looming threat since book one.

I did give .5 stars off for not as much romance as I wanted - it was there, but a big part of this book was focused on the case, and Nic's pas
NOBLE HOPS was a great mix of mystery, intrigue, action and romance. It was also the perfect ending to this great series.

Cam and Nick finally went head-to-head with the big bad Vaughn in this book. I have been waiting for this to happen since Book 1 and literally screamed with excitement when I was approved for this ARC but, as with final books in a series, there were a lot of expectations going in and fears that they might not be met. I am therefore very glad to report that this fully met all m

I love this series and the finale book was a perfect ending.

The book had everything heartbreak, happiness, friendship, love and family.

Nic and Cam go from stronger to stronger in this book (even when Cam did have the odd doubt, Nic made sure he was knew he was his future).

We finally found out what happened to Nic all them years ago and the family he lost. Curtis was no father to Nic. Nic gains a new member of family which if never knew assisted. Nic and Garrett both have there peace and as Gar
Audiobook review

The beginning of the end. The final chapter. Closure. Answers. That's what Noble Hops brings.

Since the start of this series there has been conflict, there has been mystery and crimes surrounding Nic's father, suspicion of a traitor amongst their ranks and just generally bad stuff happening. Things that was never resolved in the previous books. Now it's all come to heed and it all starts with Nic's father dying. Nic being Nic and with the knowledge he has about his father and th

4.25 stars

Noble Hops is the final book in Layla Reyne’s Trouble Brewing series and wraps up both the Vaughn storyline, as well as Cam and Nic’s journey. This one is best read by those familiar with the other books in the series, as this storyline crosses all three books. Bonus points if you are familiar with Reyne’s wonderful Agents Irish and Whiskey series because most of the side characters cross over, but it is not necessary in order to enjoy this one.

As I said, this pl

I stayed up late reading this last night, it was so good! I’ve enjoyed this series even more than Agents Irish & Whiskey. Nic and Cam have returned from Boston and are immediately hit with the news that Nic’s father is dead. Finally, we get answers to all the questions raised so far, including the meaning of his tattoo. Like the previous books, it’s non-stop action and suspense and the story rockets right along. For example, there are sex scenes but never in a bed. No time for that

This was the perfect finale to this trilogy.

Everything got wrapped up and the romance, their love, it all just felt so good.

Indeed a Happily Ever After that I stand behind.

I’ll admit I was a little nervous going in. I wasn’t sure what Nic was going to get himself involved in. And although he wasn’t perfect in this and there was one instance I wanted to strangle him he mostly behaved and did good. He relied on Cam and the rest of his Family and it worked.

Cam is just such a force. He is so strong

Absolutely fabulous- fast paced, well written and highly engaging... I was hooked. What an awesome conclusion to the series - glad to see everything went to plan - eventually !

I’m not a huge fan of mystery/suspense but I adored Reyne’s Agents Irish & Whiskey series. So I continued with the spin off Trouble Brewing series – same world but new couple.

While I enjoyed this series overall – and Dom & Cam as a couple – it never had the suspense or urgency that the prior series had. These two just moved along and a steady pace as a couple. The author throws out all the revelat

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

Noble Hops if the final instalment of the Trouble Brewing series and is full of action right from the get go. The case against Vaughan heats up and I loved seeing the team build their case against the bad guy and they try to bring him to justice at the same time trying to work out who in their respective offices is working with said bad guy.

On the romance front Nic and Cam are now living together but a huge change in Nic’s
4.5 stars- Sad to see the end, but what a great ending it was

As much as I’m sad to see this spin-off trilogy close, Noble Hops met all my expectations and more. Most definitely not a standalone, the book quickly jumps into the thick of things and grabbed my attention immediately. I loved seeing the pieces fall in place, as the case against Vaughn came to a head, the moles were revealed, and Cam and Nic’s future was cemented.

Though I anticipated a lot of my questions would be answered in Noble H

Loved this final installment of Nic and Cameron's story. With their relationship on what seems like solid ground and most of their family issues dealt with these two are hoping for a little peace and quiet in life. Yeah, not going to happen! When Nic's father dies suddenly their peaceful existence is shattered as secrets, lies, and danger come to light. This story is much more action/suspense than romance but a fantastic piece to their story. I highly recommend you read the first two books in th ...more

There wasn’t a single part of this book that I wasn’t head over heels in love with. The action was believable and heart stopping. The heat level between Cam and Nic was, just like in the other books in the series, off the charts, the sassy sarcasm was perfect, the surrounding cast of friends amazing. And the love between these two beautiful men was nothing short of pure perfection.
3.5 stars (probably)

Just when Cam and Nic thought things would get back on track and they could finally settle in together like a real couple... something happens that makes their world start spinning again.

Nic is hit from all directions and it makes Cam start to think things aren't as black and white as he thought.

I loved Noble Hops. It was my favorite out of the three book series. I think for the first time we really see Nic and Cam work together as a unit. Even through the doubts and crazy things thrown at them

Noble Hops is the third book in Layla Reyne’s Trouble Brewing series. You really need to read this series in the appropriate order, as the storyline in book three continues from those of books one and two. Additionally, I think before reading this series you need to read the Agents Irish and Whiskey books, because Trouble Brewing is a spin-off from that, and the characters and their lives are entwined. And, both series are terrific so it’s no hardship to read and fall in love with these guys!

4.5 Stars! This is the 3rd book in the Trouble Brewing Series and I don't recommend reading it as a stand alone since the main plot is a continuation from book 1. However, I do highly recommend the whole series so if you haven't read book one start there!

I took .5 stars off because I wanted just a little more romance in this book because I can't get enough of Cam and Nic. The whole crew is together and working hard to bring Vaughn down and I really enjoyed watching Nic in full attorney mode buil

Great ending to a good series.
I can definitely see a spin off of this about a certain co-owner ;)
I would also LOVE to see a novella of a certain event between a certain couple.

In this last installment we know that Nic was struggling with not really having a family, he was very secretive about his tattoo and he and Cam were still trying to cement their relationship while dealing with Nic's dad and thugish loan sharks.

ALL things WILL be answered. Even if it takes awhile to get t

I am so sad that this series is done. Maybe we will get G's story. There was a lot that went on in this book. Nic struggled so much in this one, especially when he is starting to feel happy with his life with Cam and is excited for his future. Then his father mysteriously dies, he finds out that he has a sister and an old love comes back. He is now drowning in more guilt and wants to keep everyone safe because the treats are real & there is no guarantee that everyone is going to survive. The ...more

4.5*s rounded up after I wrote the review and was reminded of all the goodness in this book!

This is the third book in the series, and draws together many strands from the previous two books - so I would highly recommend that you read them in order.

Nic continues to juggle many issues and it is taking a toll. But suddenly everything crystallises, and we then get a rollercoaster of an adventure story. It is a complex mix o

Wow this one was very good!

It kept me on the edge of my seat through the whole thing, especially there at the end!

The story continues with Nic and Cam living together and everything finally looking better for them. But the sudden death of Nic’s father brings everything to a halt and from then on things get dangerous.

Nic wants to be happy but with Vaughn still free and the people closer to him in danger, he can’t have that yet. His father’s death brings another issue to his life. More surprise
