Review ~ Angels & Whiskey (Saddles & Racks #1) by Kimberly Knight

Angels & Whiskey (Saddles & Racks, #1)
ebook downloaded for free from Amazon

Release Date: March 9th 2015

Publisher: Self-published

Whiskey, women and sleepless nights…
United States Army Captain Gabriel Hastings knew he would always follow in his grandfather’s footsteps. Serving his country was his destiny. 

Until he fell in love…

When Gabe’s love affair is cut short, he turns to whiskey for comfort and swears he will never fall in love again.

Until he bumps into an unexpected angel…
By all appearances, Autumn Jones has the perfect life. Her husband, Richard, is a loving man who wants to be a father to her unborn children. But Autumn knows the truth. Richard has a controlling, dark side that leaves nothing to chance, especially Autumn. He’ll stop at nothing to make her the trophy wife he wants her to be.

When Autumn bumps into Gabe, he consumes her every thought, but she can’t act on her feelings. She’s married to a dark man she can never leave. 

When he learns who Autumn’s husband really is, Gabe knows he will stop at nothing to protect her. Or is it too late for him to save his angel?

My Opinion

How could I resist downloading this book when it was free with a cover like that? I mean, really, there was no chance. It only convinced me more when I read the blurb. For some reason I'm in a phase of reading about military men and since Gabe is ex-army this intrigued me.

Finally, I found the time to read this and I couldn't put it down. I read the first 50% in one night before not being able to keep my eyes open any longer and I picked it back up the second I woke up until I'd finished it. It held my interest the entire way through and I didn't want it to end. I loved Gabe and Jackson. The devotion to Autumn and their need to protect her was admirable, especially when they hardly knew her. There was also a spark between Gabe and Autumn which only grew.

I think the plot was well developed and flowed easily. I got lost in the authors world completely, yet the only thing that stopped me from rating this book 5 stars is there were a few sections I skimmed. The majority of the time this was at the start of a chapter when the author repeated events from the end of the previous chapter, but from a different character's POV--since this book is dual POV. At times it didn't feel necessary and rather than add anything I felt it was just repetitive information.

Overall though this was a great read. I will definitely be reading more by this author in the future.
