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.

Bear and Crystal

I love this series. These characters are just that characters and each has their unique stories. Crystal and Bear belong together and they all have a great support system with a whole lot of love. Great job on narration!

I loved this story!💜

I’m so excited to be back in the Whiskey series.
I love these stories and especially the Hot Whiskey men!
The characters are fun, sexy and irresistible!
I was expecting a little more drama but it didn’t take away how much I loved this romantic story.
The narration was absolutely amazing. Paul Woodson totally captured the heart of each character and brought them to life. I’m excited to read/listen to book 3 in this series.
This book has an HEA & can be read as a standalone.
I highly recommend this book/series!

Crystal and Bear's Story

This is a great rendition of this story. I do wish that it was read by both a man and a woman. Paul did an amazing job though and really lets us feel what the characters do. Bear has been trying to get Crystal since he first met her but she's been a no go. Crystal has a past that has made her want to keep everyone at arms length. Who will break first in this love tug of war. I would highly recommend this to anyone and everyone

Loving the Whiskey!

This series is becoming one of my favorites. I think because of the low angst, the high love and the men to die for all make this series so easy to love and fall into. This part of the series gives us Bear's story. We met Bear and Crystal in the first book. Bear is close to Truman, helping him with his new siblings, and Crystal works with Gemma. There is definitely some chemistry, but now we get to the grit of this relationship. Bear is nothing short of a saint. He is patient and loving, and can feel that there is something that holds Crystal back from letting her heart fall. Melissa Foster has crafted a story of reinvention, putting the past to bed and finding your new normal, learning to trust and love and enjoy the people who are there for you and care for you. I loved this story, fell for Bear and really enjoyed their slow burn.

Paul Woodson continues his wonderful narration of the story. I am loving him performances, full of that alpha feel, shining light into the story. He gives each character such distinct voices, easy to determine who is talking and gives us that feeling of comforting familiarity. I enjoyed his portrayal of Bear and Crystal!
