A captivating new sexy standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster.
Special Forces veteran and Dark Knights Motorcycle Club member Bullet Whiskey lives to protect his family, their bar, and the residents of his small hometown. He’s rough, unapologetic, and haunted by a secret, painful past. He’s also a master at keeping people away, and when his sister hires gorgeous and sweet Finlay Wilson to help expand their biker bar, he knows just how to get rid of her.
After losing her boyfriend and her father, Finlay moves back to her hometown to be closer to the little family she has left. She needs her temporary job at Whiskey Bro’s to get her catering business off the ground, and she’s determined not to let the gruff, arrogant mountain of a man Bullet Whiskey scare her off.
Finlay is everything Bullet has never wanted. She’s afraid of his dog, afraid of motorcycles, and sweet enough to give him cavities, but as she weaves her way into the hearts of everyone around him, he’s powerless to resist her charms. Passion ignites, but trust doesn’t come easily, and when their pasts collide, Bullet finds out the true meaning of protecting those he loves.
Bullet “Bull” Whiskey has an interesting conversation with his sister about Finlay Wilson. Finlay gives the reader the first impression of Bullet – my screen started to let off some steam after that. Finlay is an experience and one I was happy to explore.
Be prepared to get a bellyache – you’re going to spend a lot of time laughing. There’s a sexual tension that will be hard to miss. Bullet has a slight corner on the bad boy ‘tude. But believe me when I say that Finlay does a great job in giving that ‘tude back at him.
I don’t know how our author did it, or if it’s because I’ve been listening to a lot of audiobooks, but I could hear every word being spoken by these two characters. It’s like I’m standing in the background watching their interactions play out. Ok I almost did it – I almost laughed out loud. You’ll love the scene too when you read it. But I had to press my thumb over my lips to hold it in. Think lunchroom with male co-worker and you would do the same. The only hint I’ll give you about the scene is it involves Finlay and a puppy. And don’t go searching for it because you have to read what leads up to it. And as you follow the whole scene expect to sing – again, male co-worker so I had to sing the song in my head.
I love that about this author and why this has to be one of my favorites to date. This is one book that it will be my pleasure to read over and over again. And if it comes out in audio then that will just double my pleasure. I know when you’re doing a review sometimes people get a little more critical and look for something to criticize or are disappointed in. Since I’m not an author or have a degree in humor, journalism, or English; I’ll leave that to the professionals.
So I guess that leaves me with disappointment. The only disappointment I have, ok maybe two, is that these people do not exist and I can’t go and spend some quality time with them. But in a way that’s not true because I can visit them any time I open this book. And I can always stroll around Boston and just pop into a pub – just have to hope they won’t mind me sitting there in a corner, or even at the bar, just reading. If this were a physical book, you can bet that you would see a lot of wear and tear from the many times that I’ve opened and enjoyed it.
