LISTEN-2-REVIEW - Truly, Madly, Whiskey (Whiskeys, #2) by Melissa Foster Narrated by: Paul Woodson

Truly, Madly, Whiskey
The Whiskeys, #2
by Melissa Foster
Narrator Paul Woodson
April 20th 2017
Listening Length: 9hrs 42 mins
An emotionally riveting, sexy standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster.

Watch mysteriously sexy Bear Whiskey claw his way to his happily ever after with sassy, rebellious Crystal Moon. 




The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . TRULY, MADLY, WHISKEY (The Whiskeys, #2) . . . Let's just keep this one out in the open. I very much enjoyed this one when I read it. I fell a little bit more in love with Paul's narration skills. . . .

I wanted to know/hear Bear's story. I wanted to know more about him and where he would go with love. And then there was Crystal. Seeing then together and wondering if it was truly something there or just an illusion written in to misled. The banter between Crystal and Bear was my favorite. Their interactions just felt real. Audio allowed for me to visualize the characters, the play, the setting a bit clearer then reading did. 

There were all the things that allowed me to fall in love from the book now done with narration that was really good. Paul's voice allowed for you to feel things in the various scenes that intensified the experience of this listen. The chemistry was there. Bear was the tatted, sexy, muscular male that was just wanting to be wrapped up with that one special woman, even if he really didn’t think so. Crystal well she was a woman on a mission to rise above what she was born to and raise around. There was a lot between then and a lot behind them. Coming to terms with things was what was needed. Life decisions were needed to be made. Watching as they come to this realization and doing it together was beautiful. 

I highly recommend reading/listening to Tru Blue first. Fall in love slowly over the course of a few book with both the characters and the narrator.

BLURB
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 emotionally charged road that has them questioning all they thought they knew about themselves.

Imagine falling in love with a man, then finding out he was a killer...TRU BLUE is a sexy, dark stand-alone novel written in the same loving, raw, and emotional voice romance readers have come to love, and the deeply emotional literary prose women's fiction readers have come to expect, from New York Times & USA Today bestselling, award-winning author Melissa Foster. 

"Several emotional topics -- such as drug addiction, abandonment, infertility and unexpectedly becoming a parent -- are easily woven together without making the story feel crowded or overdone. Foster writes exceptional characters that keep readers thinking long after the book is finished... The dynamic members of the Whiskey family are the foundation that holds the group together and they are exactly the reason we're taught not to judge. Let's hope we hear more from all of them!" RT Book Reviews

"Sexy and Heartbreaking....I simply adored this beautifully written romance." Tasty Book PR 

"Ms. Foster, went for the gut with Truman and Gemma. Tru Blue is more than a romance, it is a story of love, a story of hope and a story of courage. 10 + stars." Night Owl Reviews

"With her wonderful characters and resonating emotions, Melissa Foster is a must-read author!" New York Times Bestseller Julie Kenner

"Melissa Foster is synonymous with sexy, swoony, heartfelt romance!" New York Times Bestseller Lauren Blakely




The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . TRU BLUE (The Whiskeys, #1) . . . I found this to be a different side to Melissa Fosters work. You will be drawn in and taking on an emotional ride that will test your views of single parenting, ex-cons, spoiled rich girls, and more. There was a rich deep depth to the characters of this read that will stay with you for a long time. Its sexy, raw, dark, alluring, and captivating. You find friends, family, and more. Tru Gritt was a man that did do whatever to protect his family. Tru will steal your heart in this heartfelt grapple with family, devotion, friends, respect, acceptance, determination, life's second chances.

Melissa has given me a raw, dirty, dark look into the life of an ex-con that happens to be an older sibling doing what it takes to keep his family safe and cared for. I felt this one was a bit deeper in its emotional connection and had a more darker undertone than anything I have read of hers. No matter what she writes you feel the love, respect, family, friends, loyalty, and hopes and dreams come out clear and strong with each new chapter that you read. 

Narrator Paul Woodson was new to my narrator list and he will be there for a while. He gave the male POV strong presence and strength. You could find a connection with him and his characters with each new voice he provided. The audio was clean, clear, and flowed well.


BLURB
He wore the skin of a killer, and bore the heart of a lover...

There's nothing Truman Gritt won't do to protect his family--Including spending years in jail for a crime he didn't commit. When he's finally released, the life he knew is turned upside down by his mother's overdose, and Truman steps in to raise the children she's left behind. Truman's hard, he's secretive, and he's trying to save a brother who's even more broken than he is. He's never needed help in his life, and when beautiful Gemma Wright tries to step in, he's less than accepting. But Gemma has a way of slithering into people's lives and eventually she pierces through his ironclad heart. When Truman's dark past collides with his future, his loyalties will be tested, and he'll be faced with his toughest decision yet.

Overall 4 out of 5 stars
Performance 4 out of 5 stars
Story 4 out of 5 stars

Melissa Moran gives a performance that make the rich character that Addison Cole have created take on a new life. Melissa brings back the characters that I fell inlove with in the previous book. Her vocals add an element of familiarity with the characters we already met through her. The were no issues with the clarity, sound quality, no skipping, no echoing. You could make a connection and it carried all the way to the end of the read. 

Here we find ourselves back at Seaside, this time with Bella and Caden. Of course, we have the others from the Seaside gang also. We get the sweet, innocent, less provocative, yet still fulfilled romance rich characters both supporting and primary, a set-story line, and the romance journey. This was a good clean read that can be read by beginning romance readers. Seeing Caden and Bella fall in love was pure clean fun. Add a teenager, girlfriends, and the community of Seaside to it all. You get a good afternoon read/listen. You get friends, family, and more. 



BLURB

In DREAMING at SEASIDE...

Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She's quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella's prank takes a bad turn and a handsome police officer appears on the scene.

Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his fourteen-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he's found the one thing he'd never allowed himself to hope for--or even realized he was missing.

After fourteen years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella's powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Caden's loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son--even Bella?

The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . FINDING MY GIRL (Sugar Lake, #4) . . .
Absolutely beautiful. The picture are as described in the book LOVE LIKE OURS. Derek brought the love that he and Talia shared to life with imagination and clarity. I loved. Loved. . . . seeing the pictures that he (really Oliver) drew for their love was a beautiful way to memorialize their love.



If this is your first Melissa Foster book, please note that Finding My Girl is not a novel, a novella, or even a typical short story. It is a graphic companion booklet to the full-length contemporary romance novel, Love Like Ours, featuring Talia Dalton and Derek Grant. In Love Like Ours, one of the many ways Derek shows his love for Talia is through cute and loving sketches depicting their lives as they came together. Finding My Girl is a collection of those images, along with a couple of images that Jonah, Derek's father, had drawn for his wife, Eva. Within these pages you will also find heartfelt messages from Derek to Talia that are not found in the original novel.  As a bonus, the first chapter of Love Like Ours is included in the back of the booklet.

Melissa Moran brings rich character to life . . . 

Melissa Moran gives a performance that make the rich character that Addison Cole have created take on a new life. They come off the pages with the tone laid out by Moran's voice. The audio was clean, smooth, and allowed for play speed to be increased and or decreased with ease and clarity.

The sweet, innocent, less provocative, yet still fulfilled romance of an author that I have loved for here characters both supporting and primary, story line, and the romance journey. There was less of the steam but a good clean read that can be read by beginning romance readers. I have no issue at all giving this book to my daughter to read. She loves romance and having a clean romance that still engages the mind and the senses without the overload on language and explicitly makes me still feel good. Kurt and Leanna still have that romantic heat that's cleaner, sweeter, and appropriate for more readers to enjoy. The read was still enjoyable and to be honest if I hadn’t read the original publication. I would not have missed the parts that are now missing. The romance still there. The passion between opposites. Still there. The great writing still there. All just aimed more toward a more innocent, sweeter crowd.




BLURB

In READ, WRITE, LOVE at SEASIDE...

Bestselling author Kurt Remington lives to write. He spends twelve hours a day in front of his computer, rarely leaving the seclusion of his beach-front property, where he's come to finish his latest thriller -- that is, until free-spirited Leanna Bray nearly drowns in the ocean trying to save her dog. Kurt's best-laid plans are shot when he comes to their rescue. Kurt's as irritated as he is intrigued by the sexy, hot mess of a woman who lives life on a whim, forgets everything, and doesn't even know the definition of the word organized.

Leanna's come to the Cape hoping to find a fulfilling career in the jam-making business, and until she figures out her own life, a man is not on the menu. But Leanna can't get the six-two, deliciously muscled and tragically neat Kurt out of her mind. She tells herself she's just stopping by to say thank you, but the heart-warming afternoon sparks an emotional and unexpectedly sweet ride as Kurt and Leanna test the powers of Chemistry 101: Opposites Attract.

Overall 5 out of 5 stars
Performance 5 out of 5 stars
Story 5 out of 5 stars

Whispers at Seaside was a dual POV with a great duo narration (Ardnt and York) that makes you want to step in and get more out of it all. This way you have more than just the surface of things. You can see the heart of it all and the deep emotional effect that go with both Mira and Matt. There was so much love, compassion, passion, emotion, and more.

You have found a sweet romance that filled with tender moments and an undeniable passion without the explicit nature. No matter the context this was on sexy, hot professor and a single, sassy mother. I have to give kudos and more to Melissa Foster. She gives a beautiful written story with each new offering. I have over the course of this last year fallen in love with her characters from the complete Love in Bloom multi-series series. Each new couple have the own individual struggles, needs, desires, hopes and dreams. This one was no exception. 

I fell head over heels in love with Mira and Matt. Mira stole my heart because of her sense of self and her soft pride and respect for who she was and what she wanted. Matt, Mira and Hagen have a place with me. It was their interaction with each other that gave the setting a bit more. Matt and Mira both were dealing with a lot of things and the gradual growing relationship gave a bit of stability to their friendship. Having both sides of their perspectives shared made the story that much more enjoyable. We were able to get down to the heart of things.





BLURB
IN WHISPERS AT SEASIDE...
Having a mad crush on her boss’s son, Matt Lacroux—an intriguing mix of proper gentleman and flirtatious bad boy—is probably not the smartest idea for single mother Mira Savage. Especially when the company, and her job, is already on shaky ground. But as a Princeton professor, Matt’s life is hours away from Mira’s home on Cape Cod, keeping him safely in the fantasy-only zone. And as a single mother to six-year-old Hagen, with a floundering company to save, fantasies are all she has time for.

With hopes of becoming dean off the table, and too many months of longing for a woman who lived too far away to pursue, Matt’s publishing contract couldn’t have come at a better time. He heads home to Cape Cod on a brief sabbatical, intent on starting his book, and finally getting his arms around sweet, beautiful Mira.

A surprise encounter leads to midnight confessions. The more time Matt and Mira spend together, the deeper their relationship grows, and the love and attention Matt showers on Hagen is more than she has ever dreamed of. But Matt’s sabbatical is only temporary, and Mira’s not saving his father’s company so she can leave it behind. Will their whispers of love be enough for one of them to change their life forever?

After months of long-distance communication, actress Parker Collins and artist Grayson Lacroux finally plan to reconnect in the seaside town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts. But Parker never shows, and weeks pass without a word, leaving Grayson to believe he’s misinterpreted their budding relationship.

Parker has been running on autopilot ever since she lost her friend, mentor, and the only family she’s ever known, Bert Stein. Armed with junk food, tequila, and her big, lovable dog, she’s prepared to hole up and mourn—and determined to mend a fence Bert had never been able to with his estranged and bitter brother. But Parker didn’t count on the handsome artist she’s been fantasizing about for nearly a year walking in on her grief-induced drunken night.

When Grayson stumbles across Parker, he has no idea what to make of the gorgeous blonde who blew him off despite the chemistry between them. But that doesn’t stop him from feeling protective of the woman who’s consumed his thoughts for months, and when he learns of Parker’s plans to confront an angry old man, he refuses to leave her side. As Parker’s past unfolds, they’re led on an unexpected journey of discovery. Their connection deepens, until good intentions spark painful secrets, threatening the love they’ve found.
