Really let down by this one. I went in with an open mind but was let down overall. Couldn't find myself caring about the characters.

3.5 Stars ( I received an e-arc from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review)

I didn’t realize this book was a part of a companion series, but now I’m interested in reading the rest of the series. Also this a short book under 150 pages, which one can easily read in a couple hours. This was a cute little F/F romance between Jenn and Sasha who met when Sasha was dating Henry, Jenn’s brother. The two kiss and that leads to something further. They meet again 3 years later when Sasha is contracted to do some design work for Henry’s firm and attend the same company gala. Jenn is now a hairdresser and is very protective over her brother, mostly out of the guilt she feels for causing the end of Sasha and Henry’s relationship. Somehow they end up getting together for dinner and end up dating secretly. But after a while Sasha is tired of keeping the relationship a secret but Jenn is terrified of telling Henry since the breakup messed him up for a while. On Christmas Eve Sasha shows up at the family house a little tipsy to talk to Jenn, though no one can see them and have an emotional kiss. However her brother sees this through the home security app that he has just setup for the family home. Jenn finally has to address the issue and breaks down crying telling him that she really does love Sasha and they are serious. This culminates with the new couple coming for dinner with all the family and their partners. Also there is extremely cute bonus content updating us on the future of all the series characters.

I didn't really enjoy this one as much asI thought I would.  I did find it to be a little interesting. I wanted more then we got from it.

I will pretty much read anything if it has queer characters, so I was excited to take a stab at this book when I got it from NetGalley.  However Whiskey Flick ended up not being for me. 

From poor writing, to repetitive storylines, inconsistent POV changes and two dimensional characters... Pretty much everything about this story bugged the hell out of me. Jenn was the most annoying character. I hate characters who ruin their lives because they just can't make themselves communicate with family and friends. And I know this is realistic, but it's still a trope that makes me want to throw a book away every single time. 

On top of all that I just didn't buy the romance. While I appreciate straight romance authors trying to be more diverse, you really need to hire editors or sensitivity readers. It will make your story and characters far more authentic. 

So yeah, overall meh story. I skimmed a lot of it and gave it two stars on Goodreads.

I received this from Netgalley for an honest review. I gave this book a 3/5 stars. I didn't enjoy this one as much as the other one but I did find it to still be interesting and overall I enjoyed the story I just wanted more from it than I got.

This is book four in the series and I’m not as impressed with this one. I was excited to read Jenna story but to be honest I didn’t feel and chemistry or have the crazy adventures like The others. I feel sort of let down. All in all it was a closer but I felt like Jenn deserved more.

read as a box set 

falling in love with your brother's girlfriend can be a little awkward.  Especially if you are his sister.


Whiskey Everything is everything funny, sexy and entertaining.four standalone stories that are loosely connected through family and friends.  Great characters and stories that will make you laugh and fall in love with them. the four characters are different with different experiences that lead them to love.  When whiskey if involved anything can happen.

An honest review thanks to NetGalley.  This was an ok book, there was a lot of backstories that I did not know as I did not read the previous book in the story.  The relationship between the two characters seemed superficial to me and at the end felt a little unbelievable.  It was a short and light romantic read but I will more than likely not be picking it up again.

Talk about the unexpected!  I had no idea what I was getting myself into reading this book.  I really wanted to finish the series out. So it wasn’t for me is an understatement.  However the writing was really good. And I will continue to read books by this author.

First thoughts on hearing the synopsis, I was excited for a forbidden romance between the two characters. It has some humor, and the sibling relationship is strong. 
However, it wasn't for me. I didn't get the best out of Jenn and Sasha's relationship, and the jumps in time threw me off a bit. I would've liked to have understood exactly what makes Jenn and Sasha a good couple, considering in certain parts of the book that they argue. Quite viciously in fact, where Sasha accuses Jenn of constantly running away, ignoring and being immature. Then Jenn just takes it, and for me that didn't make me want them to really be together. Maybe I'm missing parts in other books where they all know each other and there's more development. But I didn't get to know these characters, so it was more difficult to me to root for characters. However, I did appreciate the strong sibling bonds, and the nice family aspect. I'm going to rate it 2/5 stars.

This is part of the ‘Whiskey’ Series but each story is a standalone. Jenn is a hairdresser who has a few good women but she’s really waiting for a woman who is great. Although, she’s met her already but she also happens to be the woman who broke up with her brother and broke his heart. Sasha hasn’t seen Jenn or her brother, Henry, for three years but her firm has been selected to remodel the company Henry works at. 

It’s light and fun with lots of humour. Jenn and Sasha have a great connection even though there is a lot of pushing and pulling. An honest conversation or two would have resolved all the complications before they even started but then there would be no book to read.

Quick, entertaining read.

I love this series by Ryan Ringbloom!  Whiskey Dick and Whiskey Chick are both hilarious and Whiskey Trick did a great job of redeeming Henry since I wasn't such a fan of his after reading Whiskey Chick .  Perhaps it redeemed him too well because I spent a lot of this book feeling a lot of angst that Jenn had kinda betrayed him.  But then Ryan Ringbloom went and redeemed Jenn in the epilogue and I felt a lot better about this book.  Although this book wasn't as lighthearted as the previous three books, it is a nice conclusion to the series.

I Picked Up This Book Because: Continue the "series"

The Characters:

Sascha:
Jenn:
Remi, Henry, Tina

The Story:

I have to start out saying I didn’t really bond with the characters in this book. I didn’t even start to care what was happening until mutual heartbreak happened. (I know that says something about me but I do not care to explore what) It was a long slog through the first 63 pages. I read the remaining 50 pages in just one night but I had to purposely decide to buckle down and commit. There is nothing wrong with Sascha and Jenn, I just had trouble connecting. Remi brought much needed comic relief to the story and in the end, I did enjoy the book. And I really liked the multiple epilogues.


The Random Thoughts:

I'm a little upset with myself for reading out of order. This isn’t technically a series but the characters are connected from book to book and I might have enjoyed this book more had I gotten to know Sascha and Jenn in Henry’s book (Whiskey Trick)

The Score Card:

2.5 Stars

To begin, I didn't even finish this so my review is obviously lacking full knowledge of the book.

Look, I love a good LGBT romance as much as the next, but for some reason, I've found that F/F romance to be lacking. It's always heavy on the drama, light on the passion. I get it, there's no alpha males to flaunt their abs and demand sex from virgins, but it is still possible to write an interesting story. 

Honestly, I was skimming this novel finding that 90% of what I was reading just felt like filler. So unfortunately, I didn't finish. I wouldn't recommend this, but who knows, maybe it gets better towards the end.

Nice way to conclude the Whiskey books featuring the siblings that came in on Whiskey Chick (I have not read Whiskey Dick). I surprisingly enjoyed Whiskey Chick -- the summary alone made me hesitate on picking up the e-read -- and thought Whiskey Trick was the strongest of this trio, but Flick was ok, though very predictable. Author Ryan Ringbloom did a great job connecting the dots with this series and I look forward to reading more from her.

Ryan Ringbloom is back with another in the Whiskey series of romantic comedies!  I loved her previous book Whiskey Trick about Henry and his dating problems.  Whiskey Flick features Henry's sister Jenn and his ex almost finace Sasha.  Henry never understood why Sasha left him.  Jenn knew exactly why they broke up and now that Sasha is back in town things are about to get very uncomfortable!

Funny, face-paced and sure to make your heart beat faster!

Thanks to the author, #XpressoBookTours and #NetGalley for letting me read this advanced copy of #WhiskeyFlick in return for an honest opinion.

Wow, I was looking through the feedback and noticed that i did not give this anything. I totally forgot, the thing is I from the start thought that this story might be heavy. it's so strange to fall in love with someone one of your family was with. So when during my read I was prying for those who went through such thing. its well written book. sometimes I thought were over the top drama and not necessary otherwise i liked it 


thank you for the free copy
