Assistant US attorney Dominic Price is staring down the barrel of his father’s debts. The bull’s-eye on his back makes him a threat to everyone he cares about, so when his lover wants to go public with their relationship, he bolts. Not because he isn’t in love—he can’t stomach the thought of putting Cam in danger.
Kidnap and rescue expert Cameron Byrne is determined to figure out what trouble Nic is running from, but devastating news from home brings him back to Boston and to the cold case that has haunted his family for two decades. Shoving aside his pride, he calls Nic for help.
Together they search for answers, navigating the minefield of Cam’s past. But when they get too close to the truth, Cam must use every skill in his arsenal to save the man he loves…before it’s too late.
NOTE: Craft Brew does not stand alone and should be read after Imperial Stout
I'm loving the Trouble Brewing series as much as I did Leyla Reyne's Agents Irish & Whiskey series, of which this is a spin-off. Interesting suspense plot that doesn't overshadow the romance, wonderful chemistry, and MC's that I love. Color me a happy camper!
Craft Brew starts off with a separation that takes Nic to San Diego for a few weeks. After the threats on his life, Nic feels the need to distance himself from those he cares about, to protect them. But things heat up again as Nic and Cam are briefly reunited, before a family emergency takes Cam back to Boston.
Craft Brew is all about family, in fact - both blood and chosen - and what that really means. Family watches your back, family chooses you, and family is always there.
We get to know Cam's family in Craft Brew. They're pretty tight, overall, but there is tension because of an old family tragedy. There is also a touch of delicious relationship angst that made me very happy. I just love the tension that gets created as our guys figure out where they really want to go.
I loved the pacing, the characters, the suspense, and definitely Cam and Nic. While Craft Brew does end with an HFN, our guys are definitely committed to each other. I can't wait for book 3!
