Summary

A new, emotionally riveting, sexy standalone romance by New York Times best-selling author Melissa Foster. Watch mysteriously sexy Bear Whiskey claw his way to his happily-ever-after with sassy, rebellious Crystal Moon.

Eight months is a long damn time to have the hots for a woman who keeps a guy at arm's length. But Crystal Moon is no ordinary woman. She's a sinfully sexy, sass-mouthed badass, and the subject of Bear Whiskey's midnight fantasies. She's also one of his closest friends.

Just when Crystal thinks she has her life under control, scorching-hot, possessive, aggressive, and fiercely loyal Bear pushes all her sexual buttons, relentless in his pursuit to make her his.

The more Bear pushes, the hotter their passion burns, unearthing memories for Crystal that are best kept buried. But there's no stopping the collision of her past and present, catapulting the two lovers down an emotional and sexually charged road that has them questioning all they thought they knew.

Bear rocks

I love this audio book so much. Paul narrates it beautifully and its definitely how I imagined Bear's voice. Melissa Foster is such an amazing writer and to hear it brought so amazingly to life is wonderful. Definitely recommend to anyone.

3.5 STARS.. SACCHARIN SWEET, SEXY & DRAMA-LITE

This is an introduction into the Whiskey clan where all the men are part-time bikers and they are a tight loving and loyal family group who would defend each other to the hilt.. or die trying. I haven't listened to it but the 33 yr old sexy hero Bear is first introduced in the book Tru Blue where he first meets sassy 30 yr old Crystal and he's forever hooked. This book starts off 8 months later and Bear has been steadily trying to woo and wear Crystal down - but he doesn't yet realize that she has erected some very high walls to protect her and a bitter secret that has, understandably, changed her. She puts on a hardass front which hides her sensitive heart but very slowly Bear's caring, supportive, attentive, loyal and very tempting self allows Crystal to start opening up, to start trusting, to start feeling and to finally let her walls crumble.

Bear does this by one touch, one conversation, one look and one thoughtful step at a time and this saintly sexy hero deserves an award for his patience, his unwavering understanding and his devotion which truly was remarkable. Crystal took a long time before she'd finally let Bear touch her and, once she slowly allowed her bases to be touched, sexy times followed. Although this is very much a relationship driven story, strong family values and demands are also present.. as well as a broken family who still hold on to secrets.

I'll be honest, it took me a little while to warm to this storyline because it robbed me of the h/h's first meeting and their first feelings.. but I slowly got over it and, for the most part, I enjoyed it. BUT it was sweet enough to give you cavities and it dragged a bit because there was simply no drama.. no angst.. no heated words.. and no misunderstandings. As the chapters slowly bled into each other I thought ok this is all very touching but where's the rocky road.. the rollercoaster.. the bad guy..? no, then what about an argument.. a hiccup.. or even a swear word? - but alas none of the above. It had plenty of heart and heat which I loved and some emotional baggage too which was all good but, for me, it was missing a little bit of drama. This is standalone but I think that I personally would have preferred to listen to it after Tru Blue because of the h/h's first meeting - and because some of the other characters were first introduced in that book. Dual POV's and the narrator did a good job.

Worth a credit? Well that depends on what you're looking for.. I got it in the sale and enjoyed it - but I just didn't love it. However, I did love long-suffering Bear who went above and beyond any previous hero to make his lady happy.. and the lucky woman was very very happy in the end.

What a great book!

I really enjoyed this well written story. This was the second book by this author that I have read, and both were engaging enough that I look forward to many more. I stumbled upon the first of this series, True Blue by chance and truly decided to give it a shot because it also had the audio option. I am so glad I did! I can not wait for the rest of this Whiskey clan to get their stories told. The narrator really brings this character to life. Good job to both author and narrator!

WHISKEY PLEASE!!


I think I deserve a shot of whiskey for finishing this one!

I've been wanting to listen to Melissa Foster for some time now, and finally took a chance, but I have to be honest.... between the narration, and the story, I almost return this audio. Luckily, I made it to chapter six where the plot finally started getting interesting. It a was sweet story, and I really liked Bear's character; however, there really wasn't much that was exciting, interesting or engaging. I actually zoned out a few times. There was a back story on the heroine, and she had to live with the aftermath, but it wasn't delivered in away that gave it any intensity. This story may be perfect for someone who doesn't like a lot of angst or steamy romance, but for me, I like my stories to make me feel all types of emotion whether their happy, sad or angry.... I just didn't feel anything with this one. I gave the story three stars because I didn't dislike it.

Paul Woodson has a deep rich voice which made it a little hard for me to distinguish between the characters and the emotions. I tried adjusting the speed up and down, and finally settled for 1.25x the speed. It took a couple of hours, but I finally got used to his voice, and narration style.

For Melissa Foster's fans, this may be worth a credit, but I wouldn't recommend using a credit.... sale maybe.

Truly Sweet & Flirty

A sweet and flirty romance between two creative and genuinely nice people. This is marketed as a stand alone book but it incorporates characters from a previous book. I actually liked it more because I prefer series. These characters -family and friends- are a dynamic cast, and create a warm background for a beautiful love story.

I review for the Guilty Indulgence Review Site.

Enjoyable narration. Interesting hero.

Paul Woodson has once again does a wonderful job narrating this second book in The Whiskeys series. I enjoy both his male and female voices and he conveys the character’s emotions very well.

TRULY, MADLY, WHISKEY was agreeable for the most part but it’s not as engaging a story as I hoped. There is very little action, which is not always a requirement, but I do expect a deep dive into characterisation in exchange and I feel this was lacking. The revelations that are meant to create tension and action within the book are mainly for the benefit of the main characters. We readers have already been told the back story and for us, it’s just a countdown until the reveal.

I liked Bear. I found him to be the most interesting character, especially the dynamics between him and his family, but I have to admit there’s a part of me that does not understand his overwhelming attraction and devotion to Crystal.

A sweet, sexy romance!

I really enjoyed this audio book. The characters were interesting. Bear is a guy who has stepped up to run the family bar and kind of left his dreams behind. He's had a thing for the main female character, Crystal, for some time. Crystal has been determined to keep things at the friendship level. I found it really cute that in trying to wear down her defenses, Bear kept texting Crystal with nothing but his name.In finally coming together, the two help and support each other in going for their dreams.
Bear won a lot of points with me. Not only was he supportive, but he was extremely patient with the sex side of things when he discovered that Crystal had some major issues with having sex. He also was bound and determined that his sister be given the right to run the family bar and not be overlooked just because she's a woman (there's more to that story). He is also very protective, which I really love! His skills in the bedroom weren't anything to sneer at, either. Yowza!
Overall, this was just a great listen!

Smooth Whiskey and Hawt!

Crystal had issues in her life. She dressed like a biker chick, but never had ridden one. Bear was a biker and helped his family in their auto shop and bar. They had a real connection. She finally confined in him her fears because she trusted him. She was surprised when he had hugged her with tenderness when her own mother had only spat venom at her. It broke the walls down around her heart and gave her piece. This was well written and Paul Woodson did all the characters with perfection narrating this one.

Loved this book. Bear and Cristal are amazing together. Audible chapters didn't line up together, but that was okay.

I want a big bad biker Bear!

Bear Whiskey works at his family’s bar as well as runs a bike shop. Crystal works with her friend Gemma running a costume party store. We met them in Tru & Gemma’s story. Bear has been chasing after Crystal for 8mos but she has friend zoned him...Crystal is finally ready to let Bear in. Turns out that she has a dark past. Follow Bear and Crystal as they work through fears and anger. Will they make it as a couple or will the past hold them back? Great story...loved Bear...he was gentle and protective.
We caught up with Tru, Gemma and the kids at their wedding. Good feels :))
