Hello my fellow book lovers! I know I have been absent for quite some time but life has a way of pulling you off track. Needless to say, I am back and I have found a new author that you guys have got to try!
Bradley Wright is his name and action is his game. I was drawn in by the title, of course, Whiskey and Roses just has all kinds of possibilities. Now I was skeptical and wasn’t sure if this would be a series I would like, but I decided to take a chance. Boy, am I glad I did! I couldn’t put this book down. It grabbed me from the first chapter and I am now a Xander King junkie.
The Xander King series is now a series that I am following with great love. Alexander (Xander) King is like a cross between Rambo and James Bond with Kentucky roots. He is an ex-Navy Seal that is out to deliver his brand of vengeance on the people who killed his parents years ago. He is intense, tough as nails, fast as lightning and sexy as hell. His joy in life is his whiskey business, his prized race horses, his friends and family. He would give his life for his friends in an instant and they would do the same for him. They share an unbreakable bond that will carry them around the world to fight some of the nastiest characters the world has ever produced. The fight scenes are chillingly realistic and the story line is a fast past whirlwind that will sweep you away and make your heart pound. The softer side of Xander will tug at your heartstrings and make you love him all the more!
There are 3 books in this series so far, with a prequel as an added bonus. You don’t want to miss a single one! The titles are:
Whiskey and Roses Vanquish King’s Ransom Prequel: Vendetta
I have read each of these books and this author just gets better with each book! You will fall in love with the characters and you won’t be able to stop turning those pages to see what happens next! These books are action packed and you never know what’s going to happen next. Your emotions will run the gambit with these books; you will laugh, sigh, cry and scream in frustration. There is a hint of romance in this series but it doesn’t dominate the book. It’s more of a ‘will he ever be able to find a love that will survive his life’ kind of thing that will make your heart ache. But in true James Bond-ish style, he muddles through his relationship issues and lives his life to the fullest extent, usually with his best bud, Kyle, at his side and his right hand woman, Sam, watching his back.
This is seriously a great read that you don’t want to miss.
Here’s the teaser for Whiskey and Roses:
The world knows Xander King as a handsome, charismatic, and successful young businessman who was able to rise above a violent tragedy in his past. The CIA knows Xander as the US military’s most legendary soldier, turned vigilante assassin, that sharpens his skills in the shadows until he can exact revenge on the monster that stole his family. They have watched his double life go on long enough, and now the government wants their weapon back.Xander has different plans.
