Publisher's 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.

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.

Oh Bear, you're seriously SWOONY!!!

Seriously, where have I been? How did I not know that Melissa Foster has released the other books in this series? I’m just dying that I waited so long to read/listen to the Whiskey clan. Just a man that sits on a bike and loves his woman so whole-heartedly makes me swoon insanely hard! I love that Melissa Foster gives us a story that doesn’t need drama and/or fights. That isn’t to say there isn’t trouble in paradise… but it’s understandable. Bear is a perfect name for him… he’s adorably sweet and can steal your heart right from your chest. I’m smitten, completely smitten!! It is a slow delicious burn and I seriously recommend listening to the first book in the series before this one.

Paul Woodson did a good job narrating Truly, Madly, Whiskey. He narrates both a male and female POV and while it isn’t my preferred method, Woodson did a fabulous job. He really has this deep, delicious voice and I really didn’t mind having him purring in my ear!!

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.

Biker with a heart of gold!

I loved book one of the Whiskey series, Tru Blue. But I FLOVE Bear and Crystal!!! Past traumas have left Crystal wary to trust, especially when it comes to men and romance. When Bear sees Crystal he is instantly entranced. Fate and mutual friends keep throwing them together; despite trying to resist his charms, Crystal finds the badass biker with a sweet side intriguing.

I love the Whiskeys, they are unique family and community-oriented white hat bikers. If a protective, growly, cinnamon roll biker is a thing, Bear Whiskey is the A+ example! Crystal is the bombshell costume designer with walls on top of walls. Bear’s friendship, compassion, and patience creep through her defenses and the way her world evolves is truly heartwarming.

I really enjoyed Paul Woodson’s solo narration. I could listen to his rumbly timbre all day! His voice and cadence are perfect for the lovable, gruff, sweet-humored biker. All of his character voices are distinct and such a treat!

Truly wonderful!

Bear is sexy, loyal and not afraid to show his feelings. He's flirted endlessly with Crystal for months but she's kept him at arms length. Once her walls begin to crumble, she no longer fights her attraction and they begin to build something special. The chemistry between these two is off the charts. I really enjoyed it!

Narrator ruined it

This was a decent, if saccharine, story about Bear and Crystal. Bear is nearly perfect alpha, in-love, protective good-guy. Crystal is a nice girl with some baggage.
The story was ok. Not too much happened. If “kind of tame with a little spice” is your speed, this is a good book for you.
Be warned, however, that the narrator is like listening to a 1960’s documentary filmstrip. He’s horrible. He overdramatizes EVERYTHING and yet he’s boring at the same time. He ruined this book and some of the others in this series.
I honestly don’t know if it’s a combination of the book plus him OR if it’s just him, but I don’t know if I can even get interested enough to finish the series.
What a shame.

My Thoughts on Truly, Madly, Whiskey

I got a little glimpse of Bear in the first book in this series, Tru Blue, and I liked him then but that didn’t nearly prepare me for what a great leading man he’d be in this story. Not only was he great with kids and an amazing brother and son, but he also was supportive and compassionate and patient with Crystal. While many men would have given up after months of flirting and waiting with no progress, Bear held on. Not because he couldn’t take no for an answer, but because the feelings were mutual, and patience was what Crystal needed. Her past and many events throughout that past made it necessary for him to be patient with her, but it more than paid off. They were great together, and I honestly really enjoyed the slow burn feel to their relationship. Once they finally came together it felt like it was the perfect moment for them. It didn’t feel rushed or too fast, it was what this couple needed. Overall, I was such a fan of this story and this couple I can’t recommend it enough.
Paul Woodson was great once again as the narrator on this. I enjoyed his tone and with the way this story was written I felt he was a good fit, and I didn’t find myself constantly wishing there had also been a female narrator.

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.
