Mad About Moon (The Whiskeys, #5) by Melissa Foster
Mad About Moon - Melissa Foster

 

 

 

From heartache to heartwarming, these bad boy bikers will cast a spell on your heart. Angels in hiding are the perfect description for these heartbreakers. Going bad has never felt so good. Mad About Moon is a tale of love lost and found. From young love to adult heartache, Jed and Josie were a second chance years in the making. Foster welcomes the prodigal son with open arms into a family of warriors. Can a romance built on heartbreak and secrets survive a second chance at love? With each Whiskey novel, I leave more and more of my heart behind.

Fighting Dirty (An Ultimate Novel) - Lori Foster

This is the March buddy read with Southern Fried Reads. So far, I'm enjoying it. It's delightfully ridiculous and Merissa is a fun character. Armie was one of my favorite side characters from Hard Justice so it's fun to get to see more of him as well.

ARC Review: Truly, Madly, Whiskey by Melissa Foster

Melissa Foster has a way of getting under the skin. She writes characters that can break your heart, leave you tempted, inspire you or make your skin crawl from too much exposure. Truly, Madly, Whiskey had them all. Bear, the bad boy has trouble written all over his flirtatious smile and his possessive attitude. Don't let the playful attitude fool, he's fought his share of demons and came out victorious. He doesn't suffer fools and he fights hard for the people he loves. Crystal is his fantasy girl, but behind the tough girl act lies secrets, she's hidden from many including herself. From her frustrating mother to her idiot brother, she's seen her share of hard knocks, but is determined to rise above the life she was born into. The scenery is not always pretty, yet the attraction is overpowering and the main characters are an inspiration. Within the pages of Truly, Madly, Whiskey dwells a message of power and hope.



Audiobook Review: Truly, Madly, Whiskey by: Melissa Foster (Author), Paul Woodson (Narrator)

I truly love this series. Foster breaks through the stereotype of what a hero should be and takes on who they are. The Whiskeys seem to be the anti heroes, but their hearts won't let them not lend a hand to a person that needs it. Crystal and Bear are broken people. Neither knows where their attraction is headed, but when their emotions are tested refuse to give up the fight. Through the words of Foster, narration of Woods on and the depth of the characters, the fierce spirit of a champion takes shape. Truly, Madly, Whiskey proves a heartbreaker can be a hero in disguise. It roots for the underdog and I love that most of all.

Book Review: Enchanted Chaos: Sky & Foster's Novel (Book #1 - #2) By Jessica Sorensen
Enchanted Chaos Series: Sky & Foster's Complete Novel - Jessica Sorensen

 

My Review Of Book #1:

 

This started off iffy and then grew into something I couldn't put down! I loved the concept with the powers and the different universe they came from. Though the six male characters did blur together for me, with the exception of Foster and Max.

 

Skylin is thrust into a not-so-steller situation when her parents disappear. Even though she only has a few months until her 18th birthday she's being obligated to move in with a family she's never even heard of. Her attitude, anger, and bitterness are understandable from the beginning. I liked how she developed a backbone of steel throughout the story. I also liked how she was still unsure about Foster after all the new information that was thrown at her in the first book.

 

I wasn't a fan of Foster from the beginning. The reason Max was one of the guys that stood out to me was because I liked how he treated Skylin and welcomed her even though the circumstances weren't ideal. Foster was standoffish and a complete jerk for at least the first half of the first book. It's later revealed the reason behind that but I'm still on edge about it. He also turned into a different person through those revelations. So we'll see how I feel about him in the next book.

 

Overall I liked this story! I love that the author released a non-reverse harm version of it. Reverse harm novels aren't for me. I always find myself liking the overall storylines of reverse harm novels so it was great to read the story and not have all that in between. 

 

My Favorite Quotes:

 

"The truth sort of hurts like a b*tch, though."

 

"You're about as chill as a god damn pixie jacked up on faerie dust."

My Review Of Book #2:

 

This was a great continuation of the initial story! Everything felt like it started moving at a faster pace. Though I would have liked there to be more story in between Sky getting attacked or in trouble.

 

Sky still has her backbone in this novel. Though as kick*ss as she's supposed to be, things work in her favor way too many times by sheer dumb luck. I would love to see her get a handle on her powers and start living up to what everyone loves to say about her being so damn special and unique. 

 

Foster has melted my heart in this novel enough for me to be open to the idea of liking him. His backstory is presented at the beginning of this book and I can understand where he's coming from and how he's had to live before finding Sky. He's actually very sweet and kind. He doesn't push her into anything she doesn't want and asks for consent on a regular basis.

 

Overall this is a good story and I'm very curious as to how this family and Sky save their worlds. The world building wasn't as prominent in this book but I still liked what was presented.

 

My Favorite Quotes:

 

"Trust. What a strangely foreign word. A strangely foreign word that is frightening to feel."

 

"But one day, you'll let go of the past and trust yourself."

 

"She said that love was like this wonderful but chaotic burst of emotions that consumed her."

A Delicious Romance
Hard Justice (Body Armor) - Lori Foster

I've officially finished my buddy read with A Monster Called Me and we wanted to read something romantic for the month of February. So a Lori Foster book fit the bill!

 

I'll be honest, I was skeptical of this book in the very beginning. I listen to all of my books through Audible because it allows me to multitask. The narrator for Hard Justice does a phenomenal job of providing a voice for Justice. It's a masculine laid back New Yorker drawl. But good lord, the voice he provided for Fallon and the other women in the book was awful. It was an overly lispy high pitched voice that sounded terrible. It came off as a bad memory of drunk gals in the club whining, "I just wanna dance!" after their fifth vodka cranberry. I wish the narrator would have just kept his voice normal for the female parts of this book. It would have been way better.

 

Beside the audio aspect, the book started off rough for me. I had to take a step back and remind myself I was reading a sappy romantic novel that isn't exactly supposed to be held to high class literary works (Not like that's my cup of tea either, but you get the point). Fallon's mega naive ways come off as a little over the top in the beginning. But once the first few chapters were out of the way, I started to adore this book.

 

Foster paints each detail so perfectly that it does become very immersive. She doesn't sacrifice any of her characters to just being stand ins. They all have their own side stories (which I later found out there are books for!). I'm the kind of person who LOVES the side stories of books. I find myself enjoying side characters more than the main characters sometimes. So you can bet I'm going to be reading the rest of the characters books. 

 

By the time the book ended, I was left wanting more. I wanted to see Justice and Fallon get married, have kids, take vacations, grow old. This book was a deliciously cheesy and savory book to read for fun. If you don't take it seriously, you'll love it.
