Truth or Dare with Jameson “Whiskey” Walker

Jameson “Whiskey” Walker – Baller, Hacker, FBI Cyber Agent. As we’ve enjoyed the Agents Irish and Whiskey series, we’ve seen Jamie hack and fight his way out of life and death situations, play and coach a basketball game or two, demonstrate some stunt-worthy driving skills and fall head over heels in love with his partner, Aidan “Irish” Talley. But surely there’s something Jamie isn’t good at. Let’s welcome in Jamie for a game of truth or dare to find out!

So, Jamie, you know how this works?

I’ve played a time or two. *winks*

All right, truth or dare?

Let’s start with a truth. I’m trying to be better about that these days.

Okay then, in addition to all the action things we’ve seen you do—

Like that action on the pool table…

*Blushes* Let’s talk about a different table instead. The one in the kitchen.

Did it there too.

Is there a table you and Aidan haven’t had sex on?

Does that count as a truth? If so, no. *winks again*

And back to the kitchen question you’re making it very hard to ask.

Hard you say…

Don’t! Sidestepping talk of tables, is there anything you can’t cook in the kitchen?

I’m a pretty terrible baker, to be honest. My mom was a waitress in a small town diner, so everything I learned about cooking, I learned at the diner, under her boss, Regina’s, foot. Fried chicken, sausage biscuits and gravy, family breakfast, a whole list of Southern favorites. I know how to make Regina’s biscuits, fry batter and pudding, but only from watching her. Not a recipe. And I like to improvise. So if it’s something I have to measure out, which is necessary in baking, I’m likely to go off recipe and make a mess of it. Lemon bars are my ultimate nemesis. I’ve killed more than one dish trying to make them. I surrender. There’s no winning that battle.

Speaking of surrender, how about another truth?

Hit me.

When you moved from North Carolina, what’s the thing you hated leaving behind the most?


Pool table cannot be your answer.

*Pouts* But seriously, my family. With Aidan, they’re the most important people in my life. After my dad died, Mom sacrificed so much, working multiple jobs, carting us all over, losing countless hours of sleep, so my sister and I didn’t have to. And I also have two beautiful twin nieces back home I love to spoil. I can’t wait to take Aidan home to meet them.

Okay, since you answered that so nicely, I’ll give you the question you obviously want. Where’s the wildest place you’ve had sex?

You know, I was gonna say pool table, but there was also the Chevelle…

Well, since you brought up cars, how about that dare now?

Whatever it is, I can handle it.

We know you’re a classic car enthusiast. So I’m going to dare the gearhead to… Drive a Prius.

I just died a little inside. Can I even fit? I don’t think I can handle this.

When Jamie is nearly killed, Aidan learns how many forms loss can take.

Aidan says I love you just moments before learning that Jamie's been keeping a devastating secret about Aidan's late husband. How quickly trust and love can go up in flames. When Aidan requests a solo undercover assignment, Jamie hopes Aidan will find a way to forgive him.

But the explosions are far from over. Aidan's cover lands him in the heart of the terrorist's conspiracy, and Jamie will have to put his life, his career and his freedom on the line to save the man who has become his entire world. Partners, always is a promise he intends to keep.

The heart’s a resilient beast
Eight months after the car crash that changed everything, FBI agent Aidan Talley is back at work. New department, new case and a new partner. Smart, athletic and handsome, Jameson Walker is twelve years his junior. Even if Aidan was ready to move on—and he's not—Jamie is off-limits.
Jamie's lusted after Aidan for three years, and the chance to work with San Francisco's top agent directly is too good to pass up. Aidan is prickly—to put it mildly—but a growing cyber threat soon proves Jamie's skills invaluable.
Jamie's talents paint a target on his back, and Aidan is determined to protect him. But with hack after hack threatening a high-security biocontainment facility, time is running out to thwart a deadly terrorist attack. They'll have to filter out distractions, on the case and in their partnership, to identify the real enemy, solve the case and save thousands of lives, including their own.

Professionally, the FBI team of Aidan "Irish" Talley and Jameson "Whiskey" Walker is as good as it gets, closing cases faster than any team at the Bureau. Personally, it's a different story. Aidan's feelings for Jamie scare the hell out of him: he won't risk losing another love no matter how heart-tripping the intimacy between them. And loss is a grim reality with the terrorist Renaud still on their trail, leaving a pile of bodies in his wake.

Going undercover on a new case gets them out of town and off the killer's radar. They're assigned to investigate an identity theft ring involving a college basketball team in Jamie's home state, where Jamie's past makes him perfect for the role of coach. But returning to the court brings more than old memories.

As secrets and shocking betrayals abound, none may be more dangerous than the one Jamie's been keeping: a secret about the death of Aidan's husband that could blow his partner's world apart and destroy forever the fragile bonds of trust and love building between them.
