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.

    Ainsley and Loch have loved each other for a long time but never knew how the other felt and didn’t want to risk their friendship and also Misty, Loch’s daughter. These two are perfect for each other and I love that Ainsley won’t let Loch push her away, even though he is trying to do it for her safety. There is more drama in this book, it thankfully Loch and his brothers are able to help save Ainsley. I received an ARC of this book and voluntarily reviewed it.
  • I’m going to miss the Collins family and Whiskey

    I have to say, it’s a toss up at this point if I love the Montgomerys or the spin off families more. Carrie Ann Ryan has created a very large and complex world. In the last of the Whiskey and Lies series, we FINALLY get Loch and Ainsley’s story. I’ve been Team Ainsley since Whiskey Secrets. I think she’s a strong female character. The insights we get into her and her past in Whiskey Undone illustrate that fact. While she doesn’t believe she’s enough, she proves time and again she’s more. I wasn’t sure about Loch. Don’t get me wrong, Ryan does growly loner like nobody’s business, but she was playing Loch close to the vest. That made it hard to get a read on him. I will say, I was ready to throat punch him more than once at the beginning of this book. But because Ryan knows what she’s doing, that just made it even sweeter when we finally got to see what Loch was keeping hidden away. Ryan does a great job with the suspense in Whiskey Undone. She keeps you on your toes and guessing. There’s more than once I was on the edge of my seat, and I was up past my bedtime because I just had to know what happened next. Trust me, it was totally worth it. While I’m sad to see the end of the Whiskey and Lies series, Ryan brought yet another amazing family to life. I’m going to miss the Collins and Whiskey, PA.
  • It’s finally here!

    By girlygirlmegs
    We have watched Loch & Ainsley’s relationship for two books now...& it’s finally here! Ainsley wants Loch to truly see her. When he finally admits he always has, the steam flows off the pages like a good cup of coffee! Loch’s former job has come back to haunt him and the town of Whiskey. So, in true Collins brother fashion, he does something stupid and tries to push her away. Read the conclusion to the Whiskey trio. Since Carrie Ann loves us readers so much, there’s a nice epilogue with a giant bow on it for all the Collins, including our Montgomery Ink crossover, Tabby & Alex!
  • Perfect End to the Series!

    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
  • OMG YES!!!!

    I think writing reviews are so hard. I hate spoilers, I don't like when reviews reiterate what the blurb already says.... so here goes. This book is outstanding. It can be read as a stand alone, but why? Books in a series are always richer having read the series. Carrie Ann Ryan takes you on a ride that doesn't leave you hanging. If you have read the first 2 in the series, this book is just as amazing as the other two. If you have not read the first 2 in the series, read this book and then run...don't walk to get the other 2 books. The characters are flawed yet relatable, funny, and real. You feel like you are part of the story, like it is something that you could have or have experienced. Carrie Ann Ryan has written another stellar book. Can't wait till the next one. Cheers!
  • Friends to lovers

    Ainsley has been Loch’s best friend for years, taking care of his little girl they almost seemed like a couple. Loch is a bit stubborn and won’t give in to his feelings for her. There’s always a little mistery and danger in the quiet town of Whiskey and the Collins are always in the middle. Ainsley does show her toughness, she is no delicate flower. I loved her. And Loch had to unlock his heart. Great story. This series is great.
  • Loved it!!!

    By Rhiltonnm
    I loved this story!!! Loch and Ainsley are so perfect together and both so insecure in how they are in able to manage a relationship. When danger shows up all Loch can think about is keeping those he loves safe. Ainsley wants to be strong and she is stronger than she realizes when she fights to get back to those she loves and the family she has chosen. The Collins family is amazing and this book is a fabulous conclusion.
  • A great read!

    By mrsliedy
    I absolutely could not wait for Loch and Ainsley’s book. It had so much going on that I couldn’t put it down. There is passion, action, and suspense. You can’t miss with this book or the series. Loch and Ainsley waited for their HEA and it was worth the wait. I was sad to see the Whiskey and Lies series end, but I’m sure CAR will just wow us with her next series. This is another must read!
  • What a way to end it!!

    By Rinsky13
    This is the final book in the Whiskey and Lies series, and what a way to end! To start off with best friends who each want more but are too afraid, and then go into a bunch of danger and very bad people doing very bad things, this book keeps you on your toes! And you will absolutely fall in love with Loch and Ainsley. And Misty of course. I’m sad to see it end, but Carrie Ann Ryan ended it with a bang!!!
  • Outstanding
