Galen Frost buys a house and a bait shop in a small Florida town to get away from his life as a semipro football player. When he meets good-time bartender Shane Barton, the heat between them is instant and intense—like the burn of good whiskey.

Galen and Shane don’t have much in common beyond their healthy libidos and their love of a good time, but the intoxicating heat brings them together like rain on the ocean, whipping up a frenzy of weather… good and bad. When trouble blows ashore, they will have to ride out the storm that breaks between them as Galen’s past rears its ugly head.

Rain and Whiskey is Book 1 of the Stormy Weather series by BA Tortuga and is set in Florida.  

Shane came to the small town on spring break and decided never to leave and with that decision was cut out of his family's life.  He works as a bartender and lives up his beach bum life.  One night, Galen Frost stops to get a drink in the bar and the two have an instant connection and they leave the bar for a hook-up.  Galen is a retired semi-pro football player and decided to buy a bait shop and enjoy living in Florida.  He takes Shane home with him that first night and is impressed that Shane takes everything he has dished out.  And so begins their marathon sex relationship.

This book was very much about sex between the MC's.  I was glad that it's fiction cause I was a little worried about how they still had any skin left especially since they like it rough.  There were BDSM elements in the book but it was completely consensual among the MC's.  Shane seemed like a good guy that was just enjoying life on the surface but was probably lonely deep down.  Galen was a guy who has experienced a lot and wasn't looking for a relationship but accepted it once it came.  The two of them are combustible together anywhere and everywhere.

Listen, kids, actually, you should definitely be over 18 to read this book, but the misunderstanding/conflict is the prime example of what will happen in a relationship if you spend 97.99% of your time naked, having sex, talking about sex, or planning ways to have sex.  You've got to have a little conversation!  Once this conflict happened, the MC's were able to get things back together.  I wouldn't say they talked it out, as communication isn't really important to either of them but they made things work for themselves.  

And yes it was a lot of sex, I may have mentioned that before, but it was hot.  It was detailed, graphic, varied and hot!  And the book ended with a promise of Book 2, the next story for Shane and Galen.  So if you're looking for a book that's going to be hot with hardly any angst, this is the book for you!

Rating:  3.5 stars
