In TRULY, MADLY, WHISKEY…
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 about themselves.
Truly Madly Whiskey is the latest stand-alone novel from Melissa Foster. However, if you’ve read Tru Blue, then you’ll be a little familiar with the characters in this story. Truly Madly Whiskey follows the story of Crystal and Bear. Bear has known from the moment that he laid eyes on Crystal, that he just had to have her. So, for the past eight months Bear had endured Crystal’s denial of the chemistry between the two of them. But, he didn’t let that denial stop him. Nope. If anything her denial only fueled him. Bear knew that what he felt for Crystal was real and he didn’t give up on her no matter how much she pushed him away…Crystal won’t admit it anyone, but Bear has been on her mind, starring in her nightly dreams. He’s sexy. He’s loyal. He is relentless in his pursuit of Crystal. And just when Crystal thinks she’s got a handle on her crazy life, things with Bear spiral out of control, leading to an unavoidable, undeniable connection. Their passion is intense and the road to HEA won’t be an easy one….
I found this to be a really enjoyable read. I thought the characters were a lot of fun and appreciated how real both Bear and Crystal were. Crystal had a lot of personal demons to fight thanks to her family life. But, that didn’t deter Bear at all. I really enjoyed how persistent he was. Most guys would have given up, but Bear knew that Crystal would be worth the fight. And Bear….he had his own demons he was battling. The biggest one: His future. So, the road to HEA for these two was definitely not an easy one. They both had issues and really had to fight for the ending they wanted. In the end, the pull between them would prove to be too strong. When the two of them finally give in to the fire burning between the two of them, they truly steam up the pages together. And that connection, that love they share…It made the fight so worth it.
