Layla Reyne spins off from her pulse-pounding Agents Irish and Whiskey books with Imperial Stout, the first installment in the Trouble Brewing series

It’s a good thing assistant US attorney Dominic Price co-owns a brewery. He could use a cold one. Nic’s star witness has just been kidnapped, his joint operation with the FBI is in jeopardy, his father’s shady past is catching up with him and the hot new special agent in San Francisco is the kind of distraction best handled with a stiff drink.

Kidnap and rescue expert Cameron Byrne has his own ideas about how to handle Nic, but his skills are currently needed elsewhere. The by-the-book FBI agent goes deep undercover as a member of an infamous heist crew in order to save Nic’s witness, break up the crew and close the case before anyone else gets hurt. Nic in particular.

Things heat up when Cam falls for Nic, and the witness falls for Cam. As the crew’s suspicions grow, Cam must decide how far he’s willing to go—and how far into his own dark past he’s willing to dive—to get everyone out alive.

Imperial Stout is the first book in a spin-off series, but is easily able to stand on its own. I really enjoy Miss Reyne’s approach to romantic action and suspense because she highlights the character development just as much as the suspense and cases, not to mention how quickly her twisted, long running plots pull me in. I can honestly say she once again hooked me with these characters. I enjoyed getting to know Nic and Cam better and see them together, and the little teasers for what’s to come certainly captured my attention. Having met Nic and Cam in Agents Irish and Whiskey, I was already fairly invested in them as individuals and really happy just to see more from each of them. Admittedly, while I still enjoyed Imperial Stout, I didn’t feel as much a draw to either man as I expected at the start, but I have confidence that will change as the series continues and the characters develop more. As for the action and suspense, I loved that it was a completely different set of circumstances and background than the previous series, ensuring it felt fresh and exciting. The pacing and writing style kept the intensity and excitement ramped up, making it hard to put the book down for very long. If you’re a fan of romantic suspense and law enforcement series that have a longer-running plot as well as concurrent subplots and cases resolved in each book, I’d definitely recommend Imperial Stout. *eARC received via Netgalley.

Imperial Stout is the first book in a series that is a spinoff of the Irish & Whiskey series. I haven't read the Irish & Whiskey books - yet - and I didn't feel lost at all, so jump in now and enjoy this exciting book. It's jam packed with action from start to finish. Dominic "Nic" Price is a US Attorney and his star witness in a high profile case has been kidnapped. Now he has to rely on the very hot FBI Kidnap and Rescue specialist Cameron Byrne to get the witness back. Cam is going undercover to infiltrate the crew that is holding his witness hostage. Will they all get out of this alive? This is a great suspense filled story with a nice M/N romance mixed in. I highly recommend it.

Cam is a FBI agent. Nic is a prosecutor for the Department of Justice. When the two are working together to protect a Serbian diplomat, things go south. They have to work together to protect a witness to the case. The two are fighting an attraction to each other that can no longer be denied. The two characters were secondary in the Agents Irish and Whiskey series. Spicy with plenty of intrigue. Well written and plotted. Great resolution for the primary storyline. The secondary storyline is revealed with just enough detail to keep you wanting more. This series is amazing!!!
