I think this series is going to be like the liquor it is named after, It will just get better with age. I can’t wait to see where JR takes us with this family, and what new dramas the next installment will bring us. ~ Kc Lu, Guilty Pleasures
In Charlemont, Kentucky, the Bradford family is the crème de la crème of high society—just like their exclusive brand of bourbon. And their complicated lives and vast estate are run by a discrete staff who inevitably become embroiled in their affairs. This is especially true now, when the apparent suicide of the family patriarch is starting to look more and more like murder…
No one is above suspicion—especially the eldest Bradford son, Edward. The bad blood between him and his father is known far and wide, and he is aware that he could be named a suspect. As the investigation into the death intensifies, he keeps himself busy at the bottom of a bottle—as well as with his former horse trainer’s daughter. Meanwhile, the family’s financial future lies in the perfectly manicured hands of a business rival, a woman who wants Edward all to herself.
Everything has consequences; everybody has secrets. And few can be trusted. Then, at the very brink of the family’s demise, someone thought lost to them forever returns to the fold. Maxwell Bradford has come home. But is he a savior…or the worst of all the sinners?

JR Ward is one of those authors that I will always trust to give me a great read. Like her BDB series this Bourbon King is one continuous story. This book picks up right after the events of the last book. Lane is trying to deal with his father’s death and betrayal. They whole family is dealing with having no real money to speak of. Which is quite the shock for these people that grew up with old money. Each of the siblings have major developments in this story. I absolutely love that you don’t just get glimpses of the other characters in these books, but you get completely into their heads. While Lane may be the main focus of both books so far, His other siblings Edward and Gin have quite the life dramas as well. I think this series is going to be like the liquor it is named after, It will just get better with age. I can’t wait to see where JR takes us with this family, and what new dramas the next installment will bring us.
