Two best friends follow a dangerous and seductive path in the final standalone novel of the bestselling Whiskey and Lies series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.

Ainsley Harris has always kept a secret from her best friend. She’s stood by his side, helped him raise his daughter, and tried to keep her distance even though she’s been in love with him for years. She knows he has secrets of his own and she’s not willing to chance what they have on a possibility.

Loch Collins has hidden himself and his past from the world for good reason. Darkness always comes back to haunt those who fight against it, and he knows better than most. One night of temper, however, forces him to realize his true feelings for Ainsley—for better or worse.

But Loch’s former allies aren’t on his side anymore, and now not only is his life and the life of his daughter on the line, but Ainsley is in the crosshairs, as well. Together, two best friends must fight for each other and their small town, because Whiskey has never burned brighter. And danger, it seems, is ever lurking.

Book 3 of whiskey and Lies series by Carrie Anne Ryan. Loch is the typical older brother over protective and takes on a lot of responsibilities. Ainsley is Loch BFF and has had a unrequited love for him for years until thing heat up between them and they both realise there’s more to them then friendship. I really like that when things heat up between Loch and Ainsley they don’t just come together and fall into a happy pattern. They struggle with the change and Loch try’s to fix things but messes it up more between them. I loved that Loch and Ainsley thought of Misty and she was always the main important fact between them. I love this big hearted family and how close everyone is, great story and HEA. I do think that the audio was better than reading book. The narrator Maxine Mitchell was ace and loved her expression of each character.

Carrie Ann does it again. Likable and relateable characters along with some hot sexy times. Loch and Ainsley are both stubborn and loyal to a fault. They make a great pair and you just can't help but fall in love with little Misty.

I've been waiting for this story since Whiskey book 1! We've had small glimpses of Ainsley and Loch's dynamic through the other 2 books but mostly remained a mystery. I enjoyed this one a lot - especially Ainsley's side of things. I did feel that Loch's 'secret' was a bit of a cop out but overall a good read. Sad to see this mini series come to an end.

I want my own Loch, but I guess I will share him with Ainsley! This is my first book in this series by Carrie Ann, but I enjoyed it so very, very much! Loch is scared to love because of his past and Ainsley is the best friend who finally gets him to pull his head out of his….well you know! Their love isn’t easy, but it is such a good read to their HEA! I will definitely be going back to read the other books in the A Whiskey and Lies series! As always there is a layered story telling to Carrie Ann’s books which I always enjoy! Check this series out – you will regret it if you don’t!

4.5 stars of Awesomesauce! I literally devoured this book! From the first couple of pages to the end I was completely hooked. I admit, I have had a hit and miss opinion of friends to lovers books, but Carrie Ann Ryan has a way of writing that just ensnares me in the story and keeps my attention because of all that goes on. She adds suspense and passion in equal parts and intermingles danger and emotional pain with ease. And she has done that very thing with WHISKEY UNDONE. Loch is very mysterious. There was something about him that screamed about a past filled with intrigue, and that is so what I got! And he is totally an alpha male, which means that he makes mistakes even if it is for the right reason. But like any true alpha, he can’t deny himself. And when he lets loose, whoa boy! Now that's what I am talking about from an alpha male. Sexy personified. And Ainsley … sweet, nice, and stubborn! She keeps her attraction hidden down far to Loch because she is happy to have him in her life in the only way that she thinks that she can. But that is also when the stubborn comes out to play. But that also leaves her heart open, and that caring heart can be bruised. Ainsley shows her strength through the book, especially the end, so she was my surprise in happiness in this story. Overall impression … FABULOUS! The characters were enjoyable in their own rights and personalities in the story and the plot itself was intriguing. I really got into this book and not only for what was going on between Loch and Ainsley, but also the secondary issue that comes up. I will definitely recommend this book to anyone that likes some danger and intrigue mixed in with their romance, because this book has it all. Happy reading!!

Whiskey Undone is the third and final book in the Whiskey and Lies series and although it can be read as a standalone the first two books are amazing! Whiskey Undone is my favorite of the three, Carrie Ann pushes the romantic suspense aspect and I loved it! Loch Collins is a single father, owns a gym and a security company. He is quiet and often broody but will go to the ends of the earth to protect the ones he loves. Ainsley Harris is a high school science teacher and Loch's best friend. Growing up in Whiskey she has always been close to the Collins family. Ainsley has been in love with Loch for as long as she can remember, she has tried to move on but her heart only wants him. Loch and Ainsley are tested when there is a murder in Whiskey and it's close to home. Loch's fears about his past coming back to haunt him and all those he loves are in danger. These two not only have to fight to stay alive but fight for the love they have been both denying one another. (less)

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book. I am always a bottle of mixed emotions when it comes to the last book of a series. Happy because “Yay, a new book”, sad because “Boo, it’s the end of the series,’ and as Loch Collins and the rest of the Collins Family have been around for a while this one being the end is especially hard. Loch is the last single man of the hunky Collins men and I believe the grumpiest and hunkiest. Ainsley Harris has been around the Collins family for years; went to school with Loch’s sister and as adults she and Loch became besties, she also has a little secret that she has been keeping from him for years. Ok seriously there is something about a growly man that gets my motor running and boy does Loch get my motor running. Loch owns a gym and security company in town, he runs his businesses and raises his daughter that is all the man does. OMG, Ryan just wrote the perfect man pumped, awesome with kids, protective, and growly!!!! Swoooooooooooon!!!!!!! The push and pull between these two is amazing. Change is never easy and when it’s a change in a relationship it’s even harder. Loch is afraid what the change will do to his daughter, not to mention no one he has ever been with has stayed and now that there has been a murder in town he’s afraid that his past has comeback to hurt his family and that means Ainsley too. He pulls her too him because he can’t help himself when she’s around, but he pushes her away to try and keep her safe. Ainsley is own strong woman because if my man was so damn wishy washy I’d have to hit him with a frying pan!!! Ryan has once again wrote a beautiful love story with heat, passion, danger and family. No matter what the love story she writes is about one of her main themes is family has always got your back, always there when you need them, and love you for you.

Tragedy and danger strikes Loch as he and Ainsley finally give in to their feelings for each other, their long-time friendship becoming something more. I liked how the storyline slowly developed and the tension - and their passion - simmered. I really enjoyed all the characters of the Whiskey and Lies series and how the heartwarming sense of family goes beyond the bounds of the immediate Collins family. Such an enjoyable story and series!

Loch has a past that he isn’t proud of, but he gave it all up when he found out that he was going to be a single father as his daughter’s mother wanted nothing to do with either of them. The only people he allows close are his family and his best friend Ainsley. Ainsley is a teacher and although her feelings for Loch run much deeper than friends, she doesn’t want to share how she really feels as she doesn’t want to take the chance that it will destroy their friendship. She has been by his side as he has raised his daughter and she is very close to her as well. One night changes everything and he starts to see her as much more than a friend. Once they crossed that line there was no going back but when his past becomes his present, he tries to push her away to protect her, but she is determined to show him that together they can overcome anything. I really enjoyed these characters. Ainsley is feisty and fiery while Loch is an alpha protector and Misty is too cute for words. This is story of two people who were always meant to be together once they found the courage to take the leap from friends to lovers. Full of romance, suspense and twists this is a great way to end the series.

This book was an amazing ending to the Whiskey and Lies series. Ainsley and Loch's story was filled with trouble and heartache, but the ending was so fantastic that it brought tears to my eyes. The story starts with a murder pretty quickly and Loch being the prime suspect. We all know he didn't do it, but who did it and why isn't initially clear. Loch can be a bit of a jerk to Ainsley at times, but she's strong enough to fight for them and what they have. I really can't say enough good things about this story. I devoured it quickly and am looking forward to what Carrie Ann Ryan crafts next.

Loved this series with the intrigue & the mysteries.. I had a hard time with this book with Loch holding so many "silly" secrets. Aisling is there for him...as is his brothers, and the rest of this family. Luckily Loch figured it out in the end & this stories ends well.

At last we get Loch and Ainsley's story, and it is a good one. We have read about them in the other books in the series, best friends that obviously should be more, but now we find out what has been keeping Loch from making his move. Loch has a past that he doesn't talk about much, not even with his brothers. When one of his employee's is murdered at his gym he doesn't immediately suspect that it is tied to his past, until the envelopes arrive... Ainsley has been in love with Loch for a long time, but she knows he has been issues and has been careful to keep her feelings from him. She doesn't want to lose what she has, a lot of time with him and his daughter, Misty, and his wonderful family. One night in each other's arms changes everything. When Loch tries to push her away she knows something is up and she is not going to have it. I was given an advanced copy of this book by the author. My review is voluntary.

FINALLY!!!!!!!!! Since book 1 I’ve been dying to see what happens with Loch and Ainsley!! The way these two finally got together was THE BEST!! I loved the uncertainty of it, the breaking point and the pieces that followed. There were so many layers to them as a couple, even before they were a couple. It was great to see them get peeled back to see how they fit together. One of the most adorable parts was how Misty was involved. This little girl seemed to really want to play Cupid, even though that’s never really made mention. The twists and turns in this book were amazing. I loved the edge of suspense that this book took on. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. I love how Loch dealt with the bad situations and how caveman like he was about protecting everyone around him. And the ending. I am the biggest fan of epilogues and Carrie Ann does them SO WELL. This was a beautiful ending to an amazing series. So glad we got to see another connection with the Montgomery’s with this family

Oh I really loved these two together, but man oh man, did they bring the water works with their story! Ainsley and Loch fell into being best friends without any rhyme or reason. Then, once Loch's daughter was born and her mother signed off rights to her, Ainsley became an even bigger part of Loch's life, helping him out with his little girl. Ainsley has always loved Loch, but didn't want to lose her best friend. Loch is ridiculously afraid of changing things between him and Ainsley, because he has issues about relationships Then, everything bubbles up, and we get to see how silly Loch's thought process truly is, and how kick-butt Ainsley really is. I loved that she fought for what she wanted and took no guff from her buddy. I smiled at his confusion, and railed at his actions he took in that confusion. They are electric together, and all the familiarity from being friends for years, only ramps up the wattage!

Wow what a emotional and thrilling end to an amazing series loved this small town of Whiskey so much..... the passion and intensity of this exciting journey is packed into every chapter. We finally get Ainsley and Loch's story and it so does not disappoint. They have been friends forever and have kept that distance for various reasons, but the dam has broken on their undeniable attraction and there is no turning back now... Loved it!!!

This is the 3rd book in the Whiskey and Lies series and I would absolutely read the first 2 books before this one so that you can understand the main characters relationship before this book. This one is the last in this series and it's about Loch Collins and Ainsley Harris. Loch and Ainsley have been best friends for years. Loch has secrets that he keeps from his family and friends in the hopes of keeping them safe. What he doesn't understand is that when he gives in to what he considers his own weakness while he is angry, it will change everything in his life. Ainsley has her own secret she keeps. The fact that she has loved Loch for years but she doesn't want to say anything in case it forces her to lose him for good. But after they both make a choice one night, now they have to decide what is truly best for them and whether to fight for each other as well keep everyone they love safe. I absolutely loved this one! I had wanted to know why Loch seemed so serious and repressed, and reading about why in this book definitely made me understand. But it also makes you sad for him. To understand just how much he went through and what his hopes for his own future had been at one time. And then learning about Ainsley and what happened in her past? That was heart breaking! Watching them both fight things out and actually learn what will bring them peace and happiness in the long run was beyond great! And then you throw in the suspense part and you will be on the edge of your seat! Another great read in this series! I am sad to see it end but maybe we can have some off shoots from it!
