For better or worse, for richer or poorer, ‘til almost death do they part…

Amberlyn Reilly took a risk and found a new life in Ireland. She did something drastic and jumped in front of a loaded gun for the one she knew she couldn’t lose. And with her mother’s last request, she did more than fall in love. She fell into Declan O’Callaghan—with her eyes wide open and her damaged heart and soul leading the way.

When Irish-born Declan O’Callaghan spotted Amberlyn across the lake, he knew his life was about to change. And it did. Now he has everything he’s ever dreamed of —he’s marrying for love, and with that love, the family distillery will now be his as long as he marries before the deadline.

Things are moving fast. It’s now or never. And as their beautiful relationship grows, time is something these two don’t have a lot of. Declan’s and Amberlyn’s souls are tightly tethered, but will the questions and second thoughts of others prevent them from having a life they’ve both only begun to dream of? Will family and the obligations that come with the O’Callaghan name push them to their breaking point? Or has the Whiskey Prince truly found his happily ever after taking Amberlyn as his Princess?

This book starts out where Whiskey Prince ends. You have to read Whiskey Prince to know what is going on in this book. So, if you haven't read it, you need to stop reading this and go start that book.

I'm going to start off saying that I love Toni Aleo. I mean I love her!! Unfortunately, this book just didn't seem to hit all the emotions that I'm used to having when reading her books.

Ok, I felt that Amberlyn was actually whiny in this book. She was not my favorite heroine. I understand she had lost her mom leaving her an orphan, moved to a new country, etc. She had met Declan, who I want as my bbf or if I can incorporate some of his mannerisms and demeanor into my husband that would work for me too.  She shows how much she loves Declan but then ends up second guessing herself way too much.  She does show her strength in places but when it comes to Declan she needs to be talked to.

Declan is a sexy talking man with an Irish brogue. Yum! That man is hot! He will do anything and everything to make sure that Amberlyn knows how much she is loved by him. He goes way above what the average guy would do to make sure that his woman knew she was loved. There was a few times I was throwing my hands up for him and thinking "really?" He has a lot more patience than I do!

Fiona, Amberlyn's cousin, has no filter and cracks me up big time. It's good that Amberlyn has her to help settle her and help her think straight. She actually gives pretty good advice most of the time. I like the interaction between her and Kane, Declan's best friend. You can see the love that they have too.

Lena breaks my heart in this story but she shows how strong she is and what she is capable of. 

Declan's mom is something else. In Whiskey Prince I couldn't stand the dad and now it's flipped to where I can't stand the mom. Crazy, I tell you!!
