Fall in love with Bones Whiskey in WICKED WHISKEY LOVE, an emotionally riveting, sexy new standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. A magnificent love story for those who enjoy fiercely loyal and insanely sexy alpha heroes, smart, sassy heroines, families, bikers, babies, and more!

In WICKED WHISKEY LOVE...
After escaping abusive parents and, later, an abusive relationship, Sarah Beckley has spent a lifetime watching snakes shed their skin. With two small children to care for and another on the way, she's finally found a home in Peaceful Harbor with the brother she hasn't seen in more than a decade. She's still searching for her sister, but life is good. If only she could stop thinking about the sinfully sexy doctor/biker who has taken to her children like a loving uncle--and to her like a hungry man.

Trust doesn't come easily for Sarah, but Bones Whiskey is patient and protective, amazing with her children, and he looks at her like she is the only woman he could ever want--and more. With two little ones underfoot, Sarah expects him to move on quickly, yet with every tender kiss and each trying moment with the children, Bones surprises her. But will the fiercely loyal biker stick around when Sarah's worst secret is revealed, or will he shed his skin, too?

It’s a sad & touching storyline. But it repeated itself with the heroine, how she felt & how she couldn’t move on. It just doesn’t hold your attention enough to want to finish the book.

I have read and enjoyed all the previous books in this series. Having said that, Wicked Whiskey Love can definitely be read as a stand alone. This was an emotional story that captivated me from the first to the last chapter. From glimpses of Bones in the previous books I have eagerly been anticipating his book. I was not disappointed and I believe I have a new book boyfriend in Bones Whiskey; I just loved everything about him. Sarah Beckley has had a hard life, first because of her abusive parents , then her abusive husband. Now pregnant and a mother to two young children she is struggling. Putting down roots in Peaceful Harbor with her recently found brother, she is determined to change their lives. All she needs now is to find her missing sister and life will be good. Sarah has fallen for the hot doctor/biker who has her children under his protection, but has difficulty trusting people. She cannot believe that Bones could be interested in her. Sarah has no idea that the Whiskey family will protect her and her children no matter what. She is used to people who let her down and cannot fathom the love, support and loyalty that they offer freely. I love this series, the characters are so well developed and Melissa Foster’s writing so descriptive that I feel as though I am apart of the Whiskey family and Peaceful Harbour. It is a story of love, hope and friendship, of family, not always related by blood and one which I highly recommend.

Finally got up to Chapter 4 and refuse to read anymore. absolutely hate the Sarah person for Bones. couldn't wait for Bones story. Just knew Melissa Foster would give him a sassy mate who wasn't mooey eyed over his looks and gave as good as she got like Isabel but instead he was hooked up with a whimpy woman with multiple children and expecting another one. Hated it and refuse to read anymore.

I loved Bones. For a while now and here was my chance to learn more about him and his love chance with audio. I fell in love with Bones from the first chapter. He was the ultimate package lusting after one woman and adoring her children. He knew this one woman was it for him. No matter if she accepted him or not. She was his. He would respect her wishes on the matter and he would cherish her regardless the outcome. There were some of the most heartfelt moments and memories created. There were the good, the bad, the painful, the down right ugly/beautiful/terrifying. Seeing someone you love beyond words be terrorized and coming to their defense puts something in to perspective. This Whiskey loved his woman and her children. He was not going to let anyone, no one harm them or even scare them. You get to see the protective streak of the whole MC and Bullet steps up and makes a decision Bones can't deny. The Narration duo brings to life the story that I already fell in love with when I read it. I would not change a thing. Overall 5 out of 5 stars Performance 5 out of 5 stars Story 5 out of 5 stars I Loved Wicked Whiskey

What can I say? Another Whiskey story deliciously created by the author for readers to devour. As you open the book it's like walking in to a shower of love and safety. You feel the full force of The Whiskey / Dark Knights caring protection, loyalty, and honor. Where each person is family regardless of bloodlines or their past. You will also find it very hard not to get completely broody in this one with the lovable biker toddlers in tow. Pregnant single mom Sarah, has been a survivor from an early age, hurt by the past she doesn't expect a lot out of life. Being loved, cared for, having friends and a community is completely alien to her, yet here she finds herself still not believing she is there or deserving of any of it. Can she finally feel that she truly belongs, and will she be finally be able to experience true happiness without feeling constant fear behind everything? Adorable Doctor Bones is determined to break down Sarah's barriers, to slowly gain her trust, so he can truly share his feelings with her, love her like she truly deserves to be loved. As he becomes accepted by her little family will her past prevent the future he can see them having together? This was such a touching story, warming, emotional and Whiskey hot, just as I like it! I loved how the author turned a negative in to a way that it could help others too.

I LOVE the Whiskey’s!! This is Bones and Sarah’s story and it is touchingly emotional, sweet AND sexy and filled with loads of heart. Bones is a perfect hero with all his understanding of human nature and protectiveness as a Dark Knight. Sarah is a VERY strong woman that was dealt crap most of her life and all she wants is to show her children love and keep them from harm. In my opinion these two were made for each other. I did NOT want this story to end, it was that good!!

Get your Kleenex handy This is one of the most emotional book that I read from the author Ms. Melissa Foster. Get your Kleenex handy because you will need a box of tissue. This story is beyond beautiful. It is so emotional. Your heart will be broken but at the same time adored Bones. This guy should award the "Father Of The Year". He is beyond gorgeous but his heart for Sarah and her kids makes my heart burst open wide with happy tears. This guy is beyond sweetness. I really enjoyed reading this book. The power of survival is so strong. We might fall many times but if we stand up, we can stand in our own two feet.

Ms. Foster delivered up another book I could not put down. Bones will go to the very top of your book boyfriend list. You can't help but fall in love with him. The Whiskeys Series deals with darker parts of human nature than most Foster series but it pulls you in even more. Bones devotion to Sarah and her kids is unwavering. Sarah is so much stronger than most women would be in her shoes. I have loved the Whiskey family so much and I can't wait to see more of them.

Wicked Whiskey Love is very heart warming. Some of the scenes were emotional roller coasters. Some even brought tear to my eyes. The characters are thought out. Sarah is a strong woman, even with everything she's had to go through. Sarah is an overprotective and loving mother. She does her best to keep her children safe. One thing Sarah is not used to is having so many others to rely on and help her out. The Dark Knights are there for her ever since her accident. Bones Whiskey is a very patient, protective, and loving man. Bones is always trying to be there for Sarah and her kids. The way Bones and all the Dark Knights interact with Sarah's kids were the best parts of this story. Those interactions are heart melting. I received this story as an ARC. I volunteered to leave my review. All opinions are my own.

I have much, much love for the men in the Whiskey family. Not a one of them are bad eggs, some may just be a little less tamed so watching them falling in love one by one has been a joy. I’m oh so happy to have Bones’ story. Early on we get this statement “I think you can tell more about a man by the way he treats other people’s children.” and it sets the tone to just the kind of man Dr. Wayne “Bones” Whiskey is. There’s just something about the Whiskey men and children that warms the soul and makes my heart pitter patter. This story focuses on new to Peaceful Harbor Sarah Beckly, her children and their growing connection with Bones. It’s absolutely a feel good story about family and a slow-burn friends to lovers tale. Sarah, her children Bradley and Lila and her brother Scott and pulled into the Whiskey family fold when they are rescued from a burning car. Over the course of the story we learn about their upbringing in a family prone to abuse an their subsequent escape. But the heart of the story is in the rebuilding of Sarah and her lives, and how the Whiskey family influences them, especially how Bones becomes their champion and how they create a wonderful family. Challenged by her past, Sarah puts up roadblocks but Bones is such a AMAZING man and accepts her regardless, really he never see’s a problem, and if that isn’t the foundation of true love (unconditional) then what is? This a swoony read filled with the voices of the “Whiskey” children that will warm your soul. The story of acceptance and strength, and the bonds of family. Yet another wonderful contribution by Melissa Foster to her Whiskey series that captured my heart.
Silvie_MySillyLittleGang More than 1 year ago
This is the story of Bones and Sarah. They are great characters that really won me over. Bones is a calculated man, and Sarah is a strong woman who sees her past as “baggage”. This book has a lot of the Whiskey family, which was nice since I have absolutely loved this family. While this is the fourth book of this series, you can absolutely read it on it’s own. If you like stories with meaning, this is one you won’t want to miss. I don’t want to tell you much about this book so I don’t spoil it. However this romance is definitely one that won’t be forgotten. It has enough steam to make you blush, and even bring out some tears. It’s definitely my favorite type of story.

So if you don’t know who Melissa Foster is by now then you haven’t been reading my blog lol. If you do then you know how much I love her books and how I always can’t wait to share her new books with you. This time I just finished the newest book in the Whiskey series and omg did this one hit all my emotions. Don’t worry if you haven’t read any of the other Whiskey series books because all Melissa’s books can be read as a stand-alone or in series. So the newest book is called Wicked Whiskey Love and tells the story of Bones Whiskey and Sarah. We met them in I believe Bullet’s story briefly but don’t quote me on that lol. Anyways Bones is part of his family’s motorcycle club and is also I believe the softest of the Whiskey family. He’s an oncologist by day and saves women and children from bad situations by night. He is big, tough, methodical, and always studies everything before doing it. He’s a protector with the heart of gold. He meets Sarah when his brother saves her, her two children, and her brother from a car wreck. He is immediately drawn into them and can’t stop himself from loving them all. But Sarah has had a tough life full of emotional and physical abuse since she was a little girl. The only toughness and strength she has is for protecting her children including the one she’s pregnant with. She got away and ran until she ended up with the Whiskey family. She has to learn to trust and believe there are good people in the world. The Whiskey family will definitely not give up on her until she does. Will, she let them in? Will she give Bones a chance? Can she overcome her past and be happy and will Bones be able to accept her past and love her and her kids? You are gonna love this book! It had me crying and screaming. I have been where Sarah has been and I know you never get over that type of pain and self-doubt but you definitely learn to see there is good in this world. Honestly, this one hit home for me and is one of my favorite books now. I definitely recommend reading it! I can’t wait to read the next book in the Whiskey series. So get your copy today. You will be happy you did!

Wicked Whiskey Love is an emotional ride. There were times where I was grinning so hard because of sweet dialogues between Bones and Sarah and there were times where I was crying because of Sarah's background story. The book is filled with dimensions due to real emotions embedded by the storyline. Furthermore, Melissa Foster's is truly gifted in creating great, amazing, and lovable characters. I like how her characters have their own flaws because it makes them more realistic, human, and relatable. Sarah is a very strong character especially towards her children but she has difficulty trusting other people because of an abusive childhood. Throughout the book, we see her growth and I love that the author created this wonderful character woman can look up to. While Bones is an amazing character. He is very sweet and caring, not only towards Sarah but to her children as well. By chapter 4, I can see that he would do everything to protect them. I also like his background story on his friend Thomas and his reason why he entered Med School. That little titbit tells us what a good character he is. In addition, I just got confused at the beginning of the book since it started with Bones and Sarah already knowing each other and chapter 1 just briefly mentioned how they met but I understand that this is already the fourth book for the series. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed this book. It is more than a romantic novel. This book gave us hope. It is an inspiration and voice to abused people. I learned that an open communication is an important factor in a healthy relationship and that one should not be afraid to fall in love. I also learned that it is okay to leave an uncomfortable and toxic situation or relationship. I am very excited to the rest of the series, especially Jed and Josie's story.

Just when you think she can't get any better, Melissa Foster outdoes herself with her newest release Wicked Whiskey Love. Bones and Sarah are destined for each other and one of them knows it. Bones does whatever it takes to prove his love to this woman who is afraid to fall.  In this sexy story, the tenderness that Bones shows Sarah is swoon-worthy and the steamy moments are super-sexy. The journey that Melissa Foster leads the reader through is emotionally draining and heartwarming at the same time. There were tears, but the writer makes sure that we get an equally rewarding amount of Whiskey family love.  The children will capture your heart and hold on for the ride. Bones and Sarah have now moved up the ladder as my favorite Melissa Foster couple. These Whiskey siblings are no joke so grab this one today and fall in love with their love story.

Wooo! I've got me a case of Whiskey fever! I've been anxiously awaiting Bones and Sarah's story for a while now. I love how deep and raw the emotions take a reader in this book. They remind me a lot of how my husband and I began our relationship. Like Sarah, I was a single mom and my husband was instantly absolutely amazing with my children. They both are vulnerable; yet, together, they fit as good as I imagine his motorcycle gear does! Sarah is such a sweet soul. Her past makes her expect the worst but things with Bones continue to get better and better with time....until the other shoe drops. Their love story is passionate, intense, and mouth-watering sexy. Melissa Foster never fails to amaze me -- she's a phenomenal writer! I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
gabby2846 More than 1 year ago
Holy swoons!!! I looooved this book. It was a story with a ton of heart, passion, strength and perseverance. Melissa Foster did a phenomenal job creating this close knit group of characters that I could not help but love. Bone and Sarah's chemistry was off the charts fantastic. You just felt their love shine through. I loved Sarah. I loved her strength and her dedication to her kids. Her will to overcome her past and leave a dangerous situation made me admire her more and more as the story went on. And then there was Bones. Bones Whiskey is dream man material. He is everything you want in a hero. He's a successful doctor. A great family man and friend. And maybe the sexiest thing about him is how he listens and anticipates all Sarah and her children's needs. Gah!! I love him so much. Every time he interacted with the children, I melted into a puddle. I need a real life Wayne "Bones" Whiskey in my life. Wicked Whiskey love was my first book by this author. However, because I hadn't read any of the previous books that featured the Whiskeys, I was a little lost in the beginning. There were so many characters that I felt I was should have already known. Or events like Bones and Sarah's initial first meeting that I'm assuming happened in a previous book and are now kind of glossed over. I know it's considered a standalone but I would strongly suggest reading Tru Blue, Truly, Madly Whiskey, and Driving Whiskey Wild before hand this one. Even though I really enjoyed this book, I wish I had.

I have loved each and every Whiskey book that Melissa Foster has written and you do not have to have read the previous ones to enjoy this one. I look forward to seeing how the next family member's love story evolves. Bones Whiskey's story is no different. Sarah has had bad luck with men. She actually distrusts people in general. She has been learning to trust the people of Peaceful Harbor but she is sure there is another shoe to drop when it comes to Bones. On the other hand, Bones is slowly falling for Sarah, whether she wants him or not. To find out how Bones manages to wiggle his way into Sarah's life, you should pick up a copy of Wicked Whiskey Love and read the entire thing. You will not be disappointed. Every woman should experience the way Bones treats Sarah. I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

4.5stars--WICKED WHISKEY LOVE is the fourth instalment in Melissa Foster’s contemporary adult THE WHISKEYS erotic, romance series focusing on the Whiskey family of Peaceful Harbor. This is oncology physician Wayne ‘Bones’ Whiskey, and single mother / hairstylist Sarah Beckley’s story line. WICKED WHISKEY LOVE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary but I recommend reading the series in order for back story and cohesion including Sarah’s introduction to the Peaceful Harbor town. Sarah was first introduced to the reader in Driving Whiskey Wild. The Whiskeys series is a spin off from the author’s Bradens of Peaceful Harbor. There is a slight MC biker theme throughout the series as the Whiskeys are part of the local Dark Knights MC. NOTE: Due to the nature of the story line content including references to rape, physical and emotional abuse, there may be some issues for more sensitive readers. Told from dual third person perspectives (Bones and Sarah) WICKED WHISKEY LOVE follows the building relationship between oncology physician Wayne ‘Bones’ Whiskey, and twenty-six year old, single mother / hairstylist Sarah Beckley. Months earlier Sarah Beckley, along with her children Bradley and Lila, and her brother Scott ‘crashed’ into Peaceful Harbor hoping for a new start. Years of abuse at the hand of her parents, and the children’s father forced Sarah to run without looking back. Meeting the Whiskey family of Peaceful Harbor gave Sarah a hope for the future but our heroine never expected to fall in love with a man willing to accept her past, and the children she loved. Enter Dr. Wayne ‘Bones’ Whiskey, the epitome of the perfect man, including his readiness to bring Sarah into his life. What ensues is the building romance and relationship between Sarah and Bones, and the potential fall-out as Sarah struggles with memories from the past, and Bones’ determination to help Sarah move forward pushes at her already fragile persona. The relationship between Sarah and Bones is one of immediate attraction but Sarah struggles between head and heart as a single mother who’s sole purpose is to see to her children’s safety and security. Bones is willing to take it slow suspecting Sarah has suffered throughout most of her life but our hero never expected to fall in love with a ready-made family. The $ex scenes are intimate, seductive and passionate, without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. The world building focuses on the building relationship and growing love between Bones and Sarah, but also looks at the fall-out and ramifications of parental and spousal, physical and emotional abuse, and the ongoing struggle to move forward without having to constantly look back. The Whiskey family, and thusly the Dark Knights MC are an over-protective group who readily accept Sarah, Scott and the Beckley brood with open arms and open hearts. WICKED WHISKEY LOVE is an emotional and passionate story line. Melissa Foster takes the reader on a journey of betrayal and recovery; family and friendship; falling in love and letting go of the past. The premise is raw, real and inspiring; the characters are realistic and moving; the romance is seductive and intense. WICKED WHISKEY LOVE is an impassioned and dramatic tale of second chances, of a sort, for a woman who has endured and survived

Sarah is running, maybe not physically but emotionally and Bones knows it. Bones has never felt so sure about something or someone than the way he feels about Sarah and her children. A great book with intrigue and peril, oh and hot sex . I loved it.

I absolutely love Melissa Foster, she is an amazing author and every book I have read by her I have been hooked on and Wicked Whiskey Love was no exception. This is book four of The Whiskeys Series but can be read as a standalone. I had not read the other books in the series yet but after reading this one I need to know about the rest of the Whiskey family. This book centres around Bones Whiskey a biker and a doctor and Sarah Beckley a single mother with two young children and one on the way. When Sarah arrived to live with her estranged brother she didn’t trust anyone but the Whiskey family had taken her under their wing, including Bones and although they treated her as their own, there was still a wall up for Sarah. I absolutely loved this book because it was great seeing someone who had a reputation as a tough guy being a biker having his heart melted by Sarah’s children but also by Sarah and seeing their relationship grow, how they both open up to each other and go through some tough stuff too. I can honestly say this has notched its way up to being one of my favourite books written by Melissa Foster.

Sarah has been through two whole lifetimes of bad experiences, not including the car accident with her brother and two children, landed her in the lives of Bones and his family. From her personal experiences, Sarah cannot trust kind gestures without expecting negativity to rear its ugly head. Bones, an oncologist by profession, and a biker by lifestyle. His first encounter with Sarah in the hospital following her accident has forever made an impression on him that won't fade. Bones is a protector and that is what he aims to do for Sarah and her little ones, emotionally and physically. After hearing just some of Sarah's story I was on the edge of my seat, just waiting for the other shoe to drop for the remainder of the story. You'll definitely shed some tears, but there is a light at the end of Sarah's dark tunnel. Disclosure: At my request, I have received an advance copy of this book for review purposes. I am not being financially compensated for this post, all opinions expressed are my own honest opinion.

I’m. Speechless. This was such an amazing read. It was a roller coaster of emotions. It was real and personal. It was romantic and made me swoon (don’t all of Melissa’s books do that!?) I love the Whiskey boys and they all have their special… quirk. Truman (a pseudo Whiskey) was one of my favorite reads because of his past and his relationship with the babies. Bones now ranks up there with Truman with his love for Sarah; Sarah’s past; and Bones’ relationship with the babies. (What’s that saying – it takes a real man to raise someone else’s kids as their own?) This read was definitely a roller coaster of emotions from happy, to guarded, to loved, to loving, to sad, to heartbreak, to anger – all of the above! I ran a full gamut of emotions while reading this but I wouldn’t have changed it for a moment. Wicked Whiskey Love is definitely at the top of my favorites and I can see myself reading this story again and again. It is a must read!

*4.5 stars* Like all the Whiskey stories, Wicked Whiskey Love is about family, not necessarily the one you are born with but the one you surround yourself with.    Sarah definitely didn't have the best of the first but she's doing everything she can to reconnect with her siblings and make a better life than she had for her kids.  Being adopted by the Whiskeys is definitely doing a lot to help her regain her trust in people and her faith in herself. Bones may not have always had every physical want met but he had what was important.  He knew his place in life and he had people that loved & cared for him.  His parents and the Dark Knights made sure that he grew up knowing right from wrong and was willing to fight for others when needed.  It's the Whiskey way and it's turned out some dang fine men.    Sarah is skittish about trusting people, but Bones is patient and he's going to convince her that he (and his family) want the best for her, will be there for her & her family when she needs them.  It truly touches the heart to see her slowly open up and accept that she's worth their attention & affection.  (And Bones with her kids will have you swooning - so adorable!)  While Bones does a lot of the work in winning Sarah over, it is a group thing and seeing the collective Whiskeys step up to be there for each other is just so very awesome.  They may not do things the conventional way but the Whiskey way has a lot of heart & good intentions and that's what is important.   **Review given honestly and freely after receipt of a reader copy. This opinion is completely my own and was not influenced in any way.**
