Autumn and Gabe

This book was so .... I don't know. I can't say that I enjoyed the story, because Autumn was in a horrible situation. The story was written well and Gabe and Autumn had many obstacles to get through. But they persevered in the end. I look forward to more of the series. The narration was done well.

Very enjoyable

This has a great storyline. There’s so much going on that it will keep you hooked completely. I fell in love with these characters so quickly. Fantastic narration from both Kylie and Eric.

Interesting premise and good story

This was a great story that kept my attention. Gabe is a fantastic heroic character who has to overcome his past loss. Autumn is in a really bad situation with an abusive husband. They meet and Gabe recognizes her as an abused woman and therefore, wants to help. Can they get past her wealthy and influential husband and also their pasts to find their HEA?

I liked the characters. I did not like what I count as cheating- getting emotionally and physically closer even though Autumn was still in a relationship (and yes, I know that being abused really does give her an “excuse” and her husband is an awful person.) Also, why make Gabe an escort? It felt like just a need to introduce yet another obstacle to their relationship. Otherwise, though, the story was interesting and I liked to see Autumn overcome the abusive husband.

This narration was done as a duet- Kyelie Stewart and Eric Rolon interacted with each other beautifully and I love duets because it really feels like a audioplay. They both had to play multiple female and male characters, respectively, and both did a great job doing that. I enjoyed the narration and felt it added to the story.

Rated a hard R for romance ;)

She takes away his nightmares and he can protect her from hers.

Gabe finds himself a bit listless after leaving the military. His heart is destroyed and he’s been offered an unusual opportunity. He and his best friend from the army have been hired by Saddles and Racks an escort service. (They are a legit establishment you are buying companionship not nookie) While on a Starbz run Gabe bumps into Autumn a gorgeous who is going through hell.

Their chemistry while forbidden is instant and the 2 will stop at nothing to drag each other from their personal hells. While Autumn derives courage from Gabe she has to step up and change her own circumstances so either can have a chance at peace.

There are mature themes and some triggering subject matter. These matters are handles with a delicate hand. The narrators are great. The story kept my interest and I had fun guessing the outcome.

Loved it

Kimberly Knight is a new author to me. Whiskey, women and sleepless nights…

This is Gabriel Hastings and Autumn Jones story. There may be triggers for some so be prepared.

Haunted by a tragic Gabe and his best friend Paul have both retired from the service. Now they work for Saddles & Rack as escorts.

Struggling to cope with his nightmares Gabe seeks solace in whiskey.

When a chance meeting puts Autumn Jones in his path, Gabe realises that he is attracted to her. I loved how all in Gabe and Autumn were when they finally moved forward in their relationship.

I really admired Autum for her tenacity and determination to create a better life. However it was Gabe who captured my heart, he was totally swoon worthy.

Angels & Whiskey had suspense, danger, intrigue, sizzling hot scenes and characters that you could easily relate too.

The narrators did a credible job in bringing the story to life; all in all a captivating story.

Loved it

When Autumn married Rich, she thought he was her forever. Little did she know what his ulterior motive was. The abuse, physical and mental, and being overly possessive was consuming her, She had no freedom to choose. Gabe a war vet, now out of the service, was a lost soul. When their paths crossed it was electric. Yes sexy, steamy, hot!🔥 Kimberly Knight's story is that of lust, betrayal, secrets, mystery , murder and love. Autumn finding her strength, and Gabe believing love can happen a second time.
Wow Kylie Stewart and Eric Rolon told the story with such emotion. They way they voiced each character was superb. I

Terrific Story & Narration🎧 Original & Heartfelt!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, Kimberly Knight is a talented author, she has a wonderful writing style, she creates interesting and original storylines that grabs your attention right from the start and holds it straight to the end. Her characters are complex and well developed. You can not help but fall in love with the male lead, Gabriel “Gabe” Hastings, his side kick Paul is pretty amazing too. Gabe served in the US Army and lost the love of his life in Afghanistan. He returned home as an empty shell, losing himself in alcohol. When a job comes his way he takes it, it is the type of job that allows him to stay unattached while he still gets what he needs. Autumn Jones life was falling apart, she is stuck in a marriage with a man who is not the man she thought he was. He is a powerful man who is abusive and controlling, he keeps her on a short leash and watches everything she does. Fed up with his abuse she comes up with a plan to leave him. While meeting a friend for coffee she bumps in to Gabe and there is an instant attraction. Knowing she is being watched they find ways to communicate and Gabe told her he would help her leave husband. I loved how well plotted this book was, there is never a dull moment, there is drama, angst, some twists, some thrilling and suspenseful moments that take you to the edge of your seat and a build up to a great romance. Kimberly Knight, thank you for this terrific story and the emotional rollercoaster ride. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

Kylie Stewart and Eric Rolon are terrific narrators and voice artists. They bring these characters to life, give each their own voice and personality, as well as heart and attitude. They did a great job projecting the emotions of the characters, as well as the drama of the story into their performance. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for this great listen🎧

I'll Take a Shot of Gabe

This is the first book I've read/listened to by this author and damn if the first chapter didn't rip my heart right out. Ms. Knight pulled me into the story of Gabe and his struggle with losing the love of his life while serving his country. To say the man did not handle it well would be an understatement. Swearing off love, he finds solace in a bottle of whiskey and turns to being an escort for release. Good thing he has his best friend, Paul, to keep him in line. Until he meets Autumn. Then all hell breaks loose. Consumed by the mild-mannered woman he falls head over heels.
Autumn by outward appearances lives a charmed life, but she hides a darkness that she lives with constantly. When her husband decides to run for mayor, the news is not good for Autumn, she knows her life will become much more difficult. Gabe wants to be her knight in shining armor, especially when he finds out who her husband really is. Autumn and Gabe might just be able to save each other if things work out, otherwise the outcome could be disastrous.
Ms. Knight weaves heartbreak, fear, and coincidence into a tight story of passion, triumph, and love. The audiobook is the first true duet narration I have listened to and I thoroughly enjoyed hearing both narrators interacting as the characters. Gabe's narrator has a sexy, gruff timbre to his voice, and Kylie Stewart is excellent as the various personas Autumn has to keep herself safe. In the end Ms. Knight pieced back together the heart she shattered in the first chapter and provided an satisfying HEA for this reader.

4,5*

Angels and Whisky was amazing emotional second chance story. 

It's about learning to trust again, to do things right and to believe in love. 

The past left wounds which had to heal. 


Gabe is former soldier and has got deep scars left from war and osing his first love.

Autumn is kind, lovely person but mentally and physically abused by her husband. 

She's got enough and is plotting a plan. When Gabe and she first meet, she is smitten with "Mr. Green eyes." He also can't watch away. They quickly become friends and Gabe promises to help her. To his surprise Autumn's husband is Gabe's former major who noone didn't like. 


The story is nicely developing with lots of twists and turns but in the end love and justice win. 


I loved every word and also the narration was fabulously done.
