Publisher's Summary

Lillian Rouse is new in town and determined to rebuild her life after a divorce. With everything new: a place to live, and a job in a new city, she sees an exciting future within her grasp. What she doesn’t take into account is the handsome man who calls himself Smoke to overwhelm her senses.

Zack Smoker has worked hard to build his new company, and the last thing he was looking for was a woman to invade his mind—especially one with little to no good experience in the bedroom. Only the first time he stares into her whiskey-colored eyes, he’s caught in a wave of desire that he can’t escape from.

When Zack learns that Lillian’s new job is at his company, he’s determined to get to know her and teach her things she never knew existed in the bedroom. He is all about pleasing her, but he never expected that he’d have the need to protect her, too.

With Lillian pushing Zack away, the burn they feel for one another gets put to the side. Will the fire be extinguished, or will Smoke find a way to get Whiskey to burn for him as he does for her?

Slow to start…

This book took me awhile to get into. The characters are cute but I don’t know if it is the story or the narrator but something made it hard to get into and really connect with the characters.

Narrator was ok. I’m partial to my favorites. It was the last 3-4 chapters where I started to feel invested. I will listen to the next and go by ear.

I was given a free copy of this audiobook for my rating and review.

Cliffhanger!

This was my first Olivia Monroe's book, a Romantic Suspense. This is the first book in the Whiskey & Smoke Duet. Zack (Smoke) and Lillian (Whiskey)'s office romance is fast-paced, steamy, and suspenseful, filled with danger, angst, and twists and turns. The story ends with a cliffhanger, and I am looking forward to listening to Burn with Me, the second book in the series. Rowan Marlowe did a great job with the narration. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Burn for Me

Burn for me is a office romance between the company owner, Zack or Smoke, and Lillian or Whiskey a new secretary. They first meet in a bar not having any idea who each other are and come up with the nicknames. Lillian is getting divorced from a terrible husband. If you can think of it Lillian's ex probably did it to her. The chemistry between Whiskey and Smoke is intense. Smoke always says I want you to burn for me Whiskey. Whiskey lives in a bad neighborhood and after a break in she has further trouble. I was shocked by who rescued her at the end of the book. I didn't see that coming at all. I also didn't realize there was another book until the end of this one. Smoke is a good supportive man who truly wants the best for Whiskey. Looking forward to reading the next book. This book is good and short.

Sweet & Sexy Romantic Suspense!!

Lily, sweet naive Lily. She is such an amazing character. She was in an emotionally abusive marriage and doesn't entirely realize that her (almost) former husband was a truly horrible person. The author does a great job giving Lily life and character, while still remaining a survivor of a horrible marriage. While, I did hate when Lily made some questionable choices (because she's an abused person and doesn't know how to think like a non-abused person) it was good for her character and I thought the author did a fantastic job of it!
Zack (Smoke) is an interesting character. He sees a pretty lady in a bar one evening while waiting for a client to arrive. And he can't get her out of her head. I liked his protective instinct because he was able to see clearly what Lily couldn't.
I enjoyed Smoke and Lily's interactions and how positive they were.
The story ends on a cliff hanger, though the second story is coming out soon!!

TW: There is an attempted assault in the story.

Note: I love Lydia. She's a peach of a character!! Plus that dog!!!

I liked the narrator. I thought she did a good job of differentiating the voices of Lily and Smoke, plus the other characters as well.

Book 1

This is book 1 in Monroe's Whiskey and Smoke series. Be forewarned that this book ends in a cliffhanger so - there's that. This book was a back and forth for me - I think that it really could have been so much better had it had dual narration - while Marlowe did a good job I think a deep, raspy voice for our lead male Smoke would have made it all the more tantalizing. Also, I had a hard time with our leading female character, Lillian. She just seemed all over the place. Sometimes she came thru with strength and other times a complete push over that I just really didn't connect with her at all - as a victim or someone who had some fight in them. Smoke seemed to be a more consistent character but even he would pursue her then back off and back and forth it went. Overall it's well written with smooth flowing storyline told in a dual point of view so there is some repetition but not overly so. Sweet and steamy balance and the cliffhanger has be definitely wanting more so...yeah

Zach and Lillian

Zack Smoker (“Smoke”) met Lillian Rouse at a bar and was intrigued. But after a bad marriage, she is here for a new start, not to let her heart get broken again. But as luck would have it, she starts her new job, only to find out that he is one of the owners of the business. Although she works directly for his partner, Lydia, he is still technically her boss. And he is relentless in his pursuit of her. Will she continue to push him away? Or will he find a way to get to her heart?

The narrator for the audiobook is Rowan Marlowe. She does a great job with the voices to make it easy for the listener to get an accurate idea of what each character is like. It helps to set the mood and is an enjoyable way to “read” and enjoy the book. And the dialog is very natural and comfortable which again pulls the reader into the story that smoothly flows from start to finish.

Whiskey needs a Smoke

Lilly/Whiskey (h) has a new job in a new town as she rebuilds her life after her divorce from her ex, Wade. She meets Zack/Smoke (H) briefly at a bar and there's attraction, but the timing isn't right. It turns out that she's the new employee at his company and the two begin a push-pull relationship with one another. It takes a bit for their heat level to get fiery, but when it does, it's hot. Unfortunately for Zack, Lilly isn't ready for a new man to be in control of her life. But Lilly's past isn't finished with her and there are dangers ahead. The story took a bit to build but when it did, it was good, and things moved with plenty of passion and drama. Whew, what a cliffhanger - can't wait for the second part of this duet.

Whiskey & Smoke Book 1

This is the beginning of Lilly’s and Zack’s love story. Lilly is recently separated and suffers from really low self esteem after years of marriage to a complete tool of a husband. When Zach shows some interest she finds it difficult to believe that someone like him could be interested in her. With some patience Zach shows her how she deserves to be treated but years of mental abuse are difficult to shake off.

Rowan Marlowe does a brilliant job narrating both POV.

Book 2 can’t come soon enough
