One whiskey-saturated night turns into something far more in the second standalone installment of the bestselling Whiskey and Lies series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.

Fox Collins likes his life just the way it is. His siblings are falling in love all around him, but he’d much rather focus on his next story than on a serious relationship. However, when his latest one-night stand returns to Whiskey—this time for good—he’ll need to learn to trust his instincts to figure out if he can live without her in his life.

Former dancer Melody Waters is finally ready to settle down in her grandmother’s small Pennsylvania hometown. Bad decisions and fateful nights have changed her path more than once, but now she’s focused on one thing: opening her new own dance studio. But fate is a funny thing, and once again, she’ll be forced to learn that actions have consequences and some repercussions can not only change your life forever, they can also come back to haunt you…one broken promise at a time. 


Excerpt:

Melody was so busy in her head, that she didn’t notice the man in front of her and slammed right into his very sweaty, very hard body. 


She gripped his arms, his thigh going right between her legs as she pressed into him and looked up. 


“Fox.” She practically breathed the word, her pulse racing. Of course, she would run into Fox at his brother’s gym. Of course, she would be clinging to him like a heroine in one of her favorite romance novels, her fingers digging into his biceps. Of course, his thigh would be pressed firmly against her crotch enough so he could probably feel the heat of her as she pulsated just from touching him— the day after they’d both promised each other they would just remain friends. Because this was Melody, and this was her life. What else could happen in a town named Whiskey with a man she’d had far too much whiskey with? “


Melody.” His voice came out more like a growl than an actual word, and he cleared his throat. “Melody, shit, I didn’t see you. Did I hurt you?”


She hadn’t let go of his arms, but he hadn’t moved away from her either. She was aware that there were other people in the gym, but she knew they weren’t looking at them. They were focused on their workouts and not the two of them clinging to each other as if they couldn’t get enough. 


And because she thought that particular thought, she let go of him and backed away. Her inner thighs missed Fox’s touch immediately, but she ignored her traitorous lady parts and their needs and desires. 


Damn them anyway. They always got her into trouble.


“I’m fine, and I’m the one who ran into you anyway.” She swallowed hard, doing her best not to think about how exactly he’d felt pressed up against her. He fit far too perfectly, and she hoped the fact that she couldn’t stop thinking about it was because she was hyped up for the gym. 


And in terms of rationalizations, she’d just reached a new level. 


He frowned. “If you’re sure.” He reached out as if to touch her before lowering his hand. For two people who had vowed to try and be friends, they were acting far too awkward for their promises to be of any consequence. 


“I am. So, I guess you come here often?” 


If there were a sinkhole for her to fall into, she’d look for it because, dear God, what was wrong with her?
