Had to review so I could see how booksprout worked!

Loved this book. It was full of action and kept me on my toes. Couldn’t put it down! I also loved that it was written from many different perspectives. We got to read what was going through many of the different ‘Reeders’ and it really added to the story. Definitely recommend!

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This is the 7th book in the Reed Security series, and y'all READ all of the books before, I HIGHLY recommend it because they all build on each other. There are a lot of characters mentioned in the book and it will help keep everything straight - and also they are really good too!

Whiskey is Chris and Ali's story and it is a second chance romance that will hit you with ALL of the feels while still having a majorly dangerous feel to it. It was action packed with emotional situations that will have

This is the seventh book of the Reed Security series and this read is about Chris (Whiskey) and Alison. The characters are enjoyable and the storyline flows well with humor, action, violence, family and love. This book is very emotional and please be advised the violence is rape, abuse and murder.

I received an ARC of this book for an honest review.

Another hit from this author for her Reed Security series.
Whiskey is slightly different than the others in the series as it deftly juggles not just Chris (Whiskey) & Ali's story but brings in all the Reed Security crew & their women as well as some cameos/mentions of our fave people from For the Love of A Good Woman series.
Ali is an immensely strong & driven woman, who is an icon on what a mother will do to protect her child. And while Chris is

I've become attached to Giulia Lagomarsino in a very short time, while devouring every book she's written, but I have to say that Whiskey was the most EPIC to date! Like I mean all the heart pounding moments still have me shaking after reading it hours ago, and I'm not even sure how to word this review because it will be only a drop in the bucket compared to this story! Reviews are rated with 1-5 stars, but if it were possible, I would have rated it a million more! Whiskey is Chris' story, but w ...more

What a story! Whiskey is the next installment in the Reed Security series. I highly suggest all the books be read in order to fully enjoy this series. This book has everything I love about this author. There is heat and romance, but there is also action and mystery. I love a mix of both.
The plot of this book was good. I liked the whole past lover coming back for assistance. I knew that there would be a lot of history that would add to the dynamics of these characters. I was not wrong. This story

Alison is trying to escape a toxic situation. Our first introduction to her character is very graphic and could be a trigger for some. Chris “Jack” McKay’s past has just caught up to him. We have another character that is very important to their story and his name is Axel.

This is a story that will have you on the edge of your seat. There’s plenty of mystery and suspense to carry this story. I’ve also come to love the business Chris works for. I know that our author suggests that

When it comes to the men of Reed Security, I have not been disappointed!

Chris is freaking awesome and fits in well the alpha males that make up the company. He is independent and totally dominant. But he is also just as deadly and dangerous as any of the others (except for Knight of course!). But what I really liked about him was how quickly he accepted what was being told to him and went about protecting Alison and her son with everything he had.

And Alison, WOW! What her character has had to e

I think this is my favourite Reed Security book so far. This story is about Chris (Whiskey) & Ali but we have visits from all the Reed Security crew & their women because when one is threatened, everyone comes together just like a family. There are visits from another series Giulia wrote From the Love of a Good Woman - I have not read that series but I intend to. This book is a tough read. It is gritty and dark, action packed and full of suspense. Chris walked away from the love of his life when ...more

This is another stellar read from Giulia Lagomarsino and it is Chris and Ali’s story. As it brings out all of the characters from Reed Security, I recommend reading the previous books however it can be read as a standalone. Chris and Ali were childhood sweethearts. However, Chris’s brother got involved with a MC. It did not end well for Chris’s brother and forced Chris to leave town leaving Ali to deal with the aftermath. Fast forward seventeen years and Chris and Ali are reunited and Ali has a ...more

Ali is abandoned by the love of her life, Chris when she was seventeen. Years later, held a virtual prisoner by Slasher, the man who murdered Chris’s brother, she is repeatedly brutalized, beaten, raped and threatened by him.
What a horrible life she endures for the safety of the son she conceived years ago.
I really hated the fact that Chris walked away and never once looked back. He put Ali in danger as everyone knew she was his girl. I was really upset reading that part!

In this 7th book of the series, a young man named Chris leaves the girl he loves (Ali) to join the Marines and escape having to join a vicious gang named the Blood Devils. The Blood Devils leader (Slasher) takes and marries Ali in revenge (lots of revenge in this book), not realizing later that the son she ends up having is Chris's son (Axel), not Slasher's. When Axel turns 16 years old, Ali and Axel run away from Slasher to Chris (now at Reed Security) for protection, but Slasher and the Blood ...more

I got given whiskey as a Arc in exchange for my honest opinion.

I might sound biased where this author is concerned but giulia lagomarsino as yet again delivered another masterpiece.

Whiskey is the 7th book in the reed security and by far the best book of all the series.
Chris was an amazing character in this book. The emotion he showed towards Ali was fantastic. Ali was a strong woman and what she went through no woman should ever go through.
Ali suffered bad but she stayed for her son axel.

I think I am starting to sound like a broken record with my reviews of Guilia's books but seriously every book just gets better and better.. this one was intense and an emotional roller coaster. I couldn't put it down, literally, I walked around the house doing normal daily stuff with my phone in my hand and almost walked into my kitchen doorframe at one point because I was so absorbed in this book.

She has endured brutal treatment for the last 17 years of life all to protect her son. She has finally escaped and has come to Chris for help however she has also brought the wrath of the two gangs following her direct to Reed Security’s door.

Whiskey - A must read book

I have read several of these books from this series and I think this is my favorite one. Chris left a life that would have left him for dead if he had stayed but he also left the love of his life behind. He joined the military and moved on with his life. He never dreamed that he would get a second chance with the women he loved. In order to get her back his whole company had to protect her and her son.

My heart was racing reading this book! I was praying that no one died because I love all the characters in the Reed Security world. Chris and Ali's story is in this book and it was a sad one to read but they get their HEA. And it's much deserved! Chris left Ali when they were 17. He thought he was doing the right thing but it ended up setting Ali up for a new path in her life that tortured her for 17 years. We find a surprise for Chris when Ali returns to his world.

This may just be one of my favorite books in the Reed Series to date. It had action, romance, suspense and just a little bit of intrigue to keep me on my toes for the majority of the book. Since we fully met Chris in Cazzo and Vanessa’s story I knew that I wanted to read a story on him and which would hopefully explain why he was always described as looking like he hated the whole world. When it was revealed just how much of a horrid life he had led before joining the military and then going on ...more

I don't know how I missed Chris, aka Whiskey and Ali's story, but I'm certainly glad I caught up with it now. This one was a bit different than the previous ones I've read as it not only brought a past love into the story but included the entire Reed Security Team, their ladies, and even characters from "For the Love of a Good Woman", which was rather exciting. Giulia Lagomarsino never lets me down with this series. There's a lot going on in this story. Action, adventure, mistrust, past and fut ...more

At seventeen Chris left Ali to save her from a life in a vicious gang. Little did he know he didn't save her at all nor the baby he didn't know about. Now almost as many years later he finds out through a cry for help.

So begins a battle for the company and all of the people and families of Reed Security. There is plenty of action--you don't threaten these guys and get away with it. It won't be easy when the enemy gets reinforcements that far outnumber the teams.

And once again, Giulia has created another masterpiece. While this books didn't have as many comedic banters as the previous Reed Security books, it did however bring some comedic relief to the scenes where the teams met up. Ali is such a strong character in this book and her strength resonates in her choices. She stayed for Axel, and she left for Axel. Chris is a typical Reed male. He is so strong, but he is able to show his emotional side. I also love the guest appearances that all the beloved ...more

What a rollercoaster ride. I was engaged from the 1st page. This book included so many of the individuals we have grown to know in this series. The action this book packed in could be a movie! It engaged the reader on a visceral level. I felt this book as much as I read it. Chris (Jack) and Ali are characters that really resonate with the reader. And the addition of Axel made the story that much more engaging and likable. It was a heartwrenching

I received an ARC from this author in return for an honest review.

Giulia Lagomarsino has quickly become a one click author for me. I have loved all of her characters and seeing their growth not only in their own stories but in the stories where they are secondary characters.

This is the story of Chris(Jack) and Alison and how they find their way back to one another, but also how the men of Reed Security have become a family that protects one another when evil is at their door.

Who is Axel and what do we learn about him? He was a SHOCKER!!! How does the author keep making each book more and more of a page turner for me? So much so that I cannot put the books down... In this story we also meet the Night Kings. Who and where are they? Things definitely got interesting in the book. Read ...more

I'm a stay at home mom with a love for romance novels. There's nothing better than reading about a hot, alpha male that makes my heart swoon. I spend most days hanging out with my kids or writing about my next book boyfriend. I love crocheting, sewing, reading, and being outdoors, but in the end, there is nothing better than getting lost in a good book!
