I have to make the pain stop.
I want to feel alive, and I do when I’m drinking and partying the way I should have when I was a teen. Instead, back then, I was preparing to become the Whiskey Princess, a role assigned to me from birth.
A lady never drinks to the point of blacking out, nor does she go home with men she meets in bars. But I went home with him…Jackson.
He was more than just a one-night stand, but I learned that a wee bit late and he was gone. Or so I thought.
For when I return home, Jackson is there, and he finds out very quickly who I am.
Problem is, I’m not sure that I’ve ever known who I really am.
I can tell by looking into her blue depths that she’s absolute trouble, but I have to have her. It’s only for one night. Some fun, and I’ll be on my way. My time here is done, and I’m ready to move on to my next adventure.
What I don’t realize at the time is that she is my next adventure.
Lena excites me. She blows my mind. And her brogue? It has me in knots. I don’t even care about the rumors that surround her.
She’s hurting. I want to help her, but then my time is up.
Can I leave her?
I have to leave. I have no choice.
But I love her.
I liked it..
Whiskey Rebellion is a pleasant read with lots of hot moments.
About the plot;
From the very beginning of the book, I discovered Lena and her promiscuous ways and I thought this is going to be some tense book, however, after the first chapters, it was more of a sweet romance than what I first expected.
Lena is a woman rebelling, rebelling against her heritage, her parents, her town, trying to find herself but at the same time getting lost, spiraling downhill with sex, drugs, and alcohol. This is the Lena in the first chapters.
Lena is escaping from her duties as the whisky princess, living it up in London, she's a woman who is observed and scrutinised by town folk and the press in the area she is from in Ireland and is perceived as royalty and due to recent events Lena is doing what she wants even if it's not good for her.
Jackson is Canadian, traveling Europe and working wherever he can.
Jackson first meets Lena when she saunters into the bar where he is working and pretty much jumps his bones and there was no way he was turning a one night stand with a beautiful girl away on his last night in London before he moves onto the next city.
From what was supposed to be a one night stand it seems fate intervenes and Lena and Jackson discover each other again later when Jackson visits Ireland and Lena at this point has had to return home to her castle and begin fulfilling her duties again as a Lady, attending charity events and filling her sick mother's mother's shoes.
I found the plot slow, predictable, the Irish accent took some getting used to as well. Lena and Jackson definitely had chemistry from the moment they met and the sex scenes represented that.
The story Is about self-discovery, not letting the past dictate your future and facing your fears.
An enjoyable read, probably perfect for a lazy day's reading but It just didn't have enough oomph, drama or angst for my enjoyment, I nearly gave up a few times, like I said it was enjoyable just not for a drama-hungry reader like me.
