Review: Taming My Whiskey

Taming My Whiskey Taming My Whiskey by Melissa Foster
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Taming My Whiskey by Melissa Foster is the 6th book in The Whiskeys: Dark Knights at Peaceful Harbor series. Dixie is the Dark Knights Princess therefor pretty much forbidden. Jace is a friend of the Dark Knight Club as well as the Whiskey family. He needs help from Dixie and once he has an image of her doing this favor for him no one else will do.

Jace and Dixie are extremely hot together. I absolutely adored this book and every single thing about it. It is utterly amazing. I had to finish it in one setting and I could not put it down.

View all my reviews TAMING MY WHISKEY The Whiskeys: Dark Knights at Peaceful Harbor Melissa Foster Releasing Oct 23, 2019 World Literary Press Blurb: Buckle up for a wild ride as Dixie Whiskey finds forever love in TAMING MY WHISKEY, a funny, sexy, and emotionally riveting standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. The perfect love story for those who enjoy fiercely loyal and insanely sexy alpha heroes, smart, sassy heroines, strong family bonds, bikers, babies, and more! Being the princess of the Dark Knights motorcycle club doesn’t come with a white knight or a fairy-tale castle, and that’s okay, because Dixie Whiskey has never needed a man to slay her dragons or make her whole. Even so, after watching each of her brothers fall in love, she’d sure like a shot at her own happily ever after. But with the Dark Knights watching over her and the only man she’s ever wanted out of reach, she’s not holding her breath. As the launch of Silver-Stone Cycles’ biggest line approaches, Jace Stone is left needing a favor from the one woman who holds the power to take him to his knees. He knows when it comes to sinfully gorgeous and sharp-tongued Dixie Whiskey, he must stay on his toes and keep his walls firmly in place. But Jace needs her for his business—and Jace Stone always gets what he wants. When the tall, gruff, and darkly handsome biker presents an opportunity that any other woman might see as the chance of a lifetime, Dixie turns him down flat. But Jace is determined, and he pulls out all the stops—sending Dixie’s overprotective brothers up in arms. Rebellious Dixie takes a stand—going after the freedom, and the man, she’s always wanted. One scorching kiss leads to an undeniable connection, but Jace isn’t looking to be tied down, and Dixie refuses to play second fiddle. Can two untamable hearts find forever love in each other’s arms?

She walked away with the human inferno that was Jace Stone on her heels. “Dixie, how can you be upset with me? I gave you a twenty-thousand-dollar donation for the auction.” She set the bottles on the bar and said, “Which I truly appreciate, but giving of yourself and giving money are two different things. One is easy and mindless. The other tells me who you are. It was a real eye-opener.” She crossed her arms and said, “What did you need help with anyway?” Diesel grabbed the empty bottles, and Dixie said, “Another round, please.” “I’m rolling out the Legacy line in the fall.” “So I’ve heard. Bear’s pretty excited.” In addition to working at Whiskey Automotive, Bear worked part-time designing and building custom motorcycles for Jace’s company. He hadn’t worked on the Legacy line, but he raved about it. “We all are. This line is my baby. I’ve put blood, sweat, and tears into it. It’s the first motorcycle line that will have bikes designed specifically for women. Nobody’s doing that, Dix. This is a huge deal.” Bear had told her all about Jace’s innovative, sleek designs for women. It was a genius idea, and it didn’t surprise her that Jace had come up with it. But she couldn’t help thinking about Jace researching the contours of women’s bodies… Diesel put three bottles on the bar, eyes locked on Jace. “Stone,” he said evenly. “Diesel.” Jace lifted his chin in the manly greeting Dixie was accustomed to. “Thanks, Diesel,” Dixie said, and as she headed to the table with Jace beside her, she said, “Congratulations on the line, but what does it have to do with needing me?” She set the bottles down, flashed a smile at the customers, and said, “Can I get you boys anything else?” One of them looked her up and down lasciviously. Jace stepped closer, and the guy shifted his eyes away and said, “No. We’re good.” Dixie spun on her heels, grabbed Jace’s arm, and dragged him to the side of the room. She felt Diesel’s antennae springing and glanced at the bar, mouthing, I’m fine! Turning her attention to Jace, she spoke in a harsh whisper. “You just fucked up my tip, and I don’t appreciate it. So whatever you have to say, say it and be gone, okay? I’ve got work to do.” “That guy was looking at you like you were a piece of meat.” “No shit. They all do.” Except now that she was thinking about it, Jace never had. Not once. In fact, in all the years she’d known him, this was the longest he’d ever looked at her. He didn’t live in Peaceful Harbor, but he traveled there often to see his brother Jared, who had signed up for the auction. Jared owned a restaurant in Pleasant Hill and lived there for several months out of the year. “I have a lot to do, Jace, so if you have more to say, please get on with it.” “I’m launching a women’s clothing line called Leather and Lace when we launch the Legacy line. We’re making a calendar to promote the clothing and the new bikes. The photo shoot is next week, and the woman I hired to model got hurt and can’t make it. I want you to replace her.” She blinked several times, unable to believe what she was hearing. An incredulous laugh tumbled out. “Do you even fucking know me, Stone? I am not a pinup girl!” She took a step away and he grabbed her arm, tugging her back to him and keeping her so close, she could see flecks of gold in his sexy hazel eyes. “This is important to me, Dixie. I don’t want someone who fakes being a biker. I want an authentic woman. I want you.” “Do I need to point out that I was your second choice, or maybe your tenth. I don’t know or care, because any way you cut it, the answer is no. I told you, I’m not a pinup girl.” She held his steady gaze with an ice-cold one of her own and said, “For the record, Whiskeys don’t play second fiddle to anyone. Sorry, Stone, but you’re out of luck.” “Come on, Dixie,” he pleaded gruffly. “I’ll let you auction me off.” “Too little, too late. The ballot is full.” The lie felt victorious. She yanked her arm free and said, “I have customers to help. Good luck with the line. I’m sure, like everything you touch, it will turn to gold.” “With you on board, it’ll be legendary.” “No.” He leaned closer and lowered his voice to say, “This isn’t over, kitten.” “What the hell did you just say?” Anger simmered inside her. She poked him in his rock-hard chest and said, “I’m nobody’s kitten, and you’re this close to earning a knee to your groin.” “You definitely know how to use those claws, and you’re so sweet I bet you purr,” he said arrogantly. “You know you want to do it, Dix.” His eyes drilled into her, causing heat to sear through her veins and her traitorous nipples to pebble into aching peaks. Damn, he played dirty. “Careful, Stone. This kitten bites.”

Review: Catching Him

Catching Him Catching Him by Aurora Rose Reynolds
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Catching Him by Aurora Rose Reynolds is the first book in the How to Catch an Alpha series. Let me just tell you that Tyler is amazing. He is everything a girl could want in a man. Leah was completely caught off guard by him. I completely felt her. I myself have been in similar shoes and been not interested in meeting anyone then been blown away by an alpha. They are an amazing team. This book will not disappoint.

Review: A Bet with Benefits

A Bet with Benefits A Bet with Benefits by Karen Booth
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Bet with Benefits by Karen Booth is the third book in the Eden Empire series. I must say I enjoyed Sam and Mindy's story just as much as the rest. I had really started to not like Sam from previous books so I am so glad he did a 360 and changed my view of him. He wasn't the guy I thought. Thank you for such a great enjoyable hot intense read Karen. It was absolutely wonderful.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Review: Shadow

Shadow Shadow by Janie Crouch
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Linear Tactical by Janie Crouch is the sixth book in the Linear Tactical. This series can be read as a standalone but you will be missing some serious back story if you choose to not read them in order. I loved Shadow and Lyn they are amazing. Shadow has hid in the shadows long enough. He needs to know what is flowing in the background of his brain but he keeps coming up with dead ends.

Lyn has been born and raised in a family of military and cops. So when she finds herself falling for one it drives her batty. What she doesn't know is that this man is her brother's best friend and they are walking a very thin line.

Lyn has studied languages and discovers that a dead dialect is what seems to be keeping shadow going crazy so just maybe she can decipher it and figure out exactly how to help him.

This read is amazing and I loved every single minute of it.

Kathy is a born reader who as a child always had her nose in a book. She went from reading Bobbsey Twins to romance novels. One day she stumbled upon The Shining by Stephen King and was hooked on horror. When she caught herself checking under the bed and looking in the closet for monsters, she knew it was time to put down the horror and return to romance novels.
Her return was short-lived. She started law school and soon her reading was limited to legal opinions. Then she discovered Harlequin romances. They were short enough to read in a week and she wouldn't have to search her room before she went to sleep.
When her first child was born, she became a stay at home mom. Her second child soon followed, and reading was limited to children's books.
All too soon her kids were attending pre-school. Kathy spent those hours renewing her relationship with romance novels. Soon she felt the urge to write the stories she wanted to read. In 2016, Kathy sold to Harlequin. Her first book, How to Steal the Lawman's Heart, was released in February, 2017. Since then, she has released several more books with Harlequin.
