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?
Toni Aleo captured my heart with her Assassins series, so I was hesitant to read “Whiskey Prince” last year. I was sure that switching from Sports Romance to Contemporary New Adult? Was too big of a leap. But she did it beautifully, so Whiskey Princess was heavily anticipated!! (And a HUGE thank you to Toni for the review copy!!)
This book was phenomenal. Amberlyn and Declan are so real, and minus the gobs and gobs of money at his disposal? Their characters are incredibly relatable!
What I love most about this story is the fact that these two have real problems – things that would make or break any normal couple. And they have to try to overcome it!!
So thank you, Toni Aleo, for bringing us such a beautiful love story! This one brought tears to my eyes and kept me up way to late at night! But I loved every minute of it!! It leaves me wanting more and anxious to see what Mrs. Aleo has coming next!
