BLURB:
Professionally, the FBI team of Aidan “Irish” Talley and Jameson “Whiskey” Walker is as good as it gets, closing cases faster than any team at the Bureau. Personally, it’s a different story. Aidan’s feelings for Jamie scare the hell out of him: he won’t risk losing another love no matter how heart-tripping the intimacy between them. And loss is a grim reality with the terrorist Renaud still on their trail, leaving a pile of bodies in his wake.

Going undercover on a new case gets them out of town and off the killer’s radar. They’re assigned to investigate an identity theft ring involving a college basketball team in Jamie’s home state, where Jamie’s past makes him perfect for the role of coach. But returning to the court brings more than old memories.

As secrets and shocking betrayals abound, none may be more dangerous than the one Jamie’s been keeping: a secret about the death of Aidan’s husband that could blow his partner’s world apart and destroy forever the fragile bonds of trust and love building between them.

This audiobook was as entertaining as the first book and maybe even more.

The agents Aiden Talley (Irish) and Jameson Walker (Whiskey) are still partners after five months but their “relationship” has hit a snag. Aiden still wants to keep things casual but Jamie wants to be exclusive.
On top of that Jamie is continuing the secret investigation into the death of Aiden’s husband Gabe and his partner Tom.

When the Irish and Whiskey are sent undercover to investigate a college team’s online betting ring, past issues resurface for Jamie. He has to make decisions whether to fall back into old familiar routines or to chart new courses both in his professional life and his personal life.

This book was entertaining and the plot was both interesting and easy to follow. This author’s writing flowed really well and the narrator did an awesome job with the voices. This story was suspenseful and I didn’t know who the villains were until the end. There was a good mix of romance with mystery and I was rooting for Irish and Whiskey the whole time.

I am ready for book 3 because this series is quite promising. I have been waiting for one like this since Cut and Run finished.
