Truly, Madly, Whiskey by Melissa Foster Blog Tour


A new, 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.

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 emotional and sexually charged road that has them questioning all they thought they knew.

“Really, Bear. I can drop you at your place before I go to the fabric shop.” Crystal started the car, feeling more in control than she had inside the shop. She hated the way she’d frozen up when things had gotten hot between them. She wanted him. After putting herself through three years of therapy, dealing with not only the trauma of the attack, but the bullshit with her mother and the loss of her father, she was sure she could handle anything. She’d dated other guys since she’d left college without issue. Why did it have to be different with the only guy she wanted to be close to? It pissed her off that her past still owned a piece of her, and she needed to get over it before Bear got fed up and walked away for good.

“I have to go to the store anyway.” He flashed one of his smiles. “We might as well go together.”

“You need to go to the fabric store?” she said flatly, knowing he was bullshitting her. She realized her car smelled different, cleaner. The seats were shiny, the dashboard dust free. “Did you clean my car?”

“Detailed it,” he said casually, as if he did this type of thing every day. For all she knew, he did. “Changed your oil, topped off your fluids. You really need to do those things every three thousand miles.” He touched the doll hanging from her rearview mirror. “I dusted off this, too, even though I’m a little worried that it’s a voodoo doll.”

She wasn’t about to tell him it was a worry doll that she loved more than life itself.

“Bear.” She couldn’t suppress her smile about the voodoo doll as she drove toward the store. “You really need to stop acting like you have to take care of me. I appreciate you handling the inspection, which I’m paying you for, by the way. But you don’t have to do all these things for me. I already like who you are.” Even if I have a hard time showing it.

“I know you do,” he said, as cocky as ever.

Why is that such a turn-on?

“I didn’t do it to get your attention. Shit, six three, two thirty.” He flexed his biceps and winked. “You’re sitting next to Peaceful Harbor gold, baby. I’ve got your attention.”

She couldn’t suppress a laugh. “That you do, and probably half the women in this town.”

“Only half?”

He kept her laughing the whole way to the fabric store, and it was just what she needed. It really had been a long day. They’d hosted three parties, and one of the mothers was just about the most obnoxious woman on earth. She’d pushed her daughter toward pink frilly outfits for the first half hour, when all the little cutie had wanted was to dress up as a skateboard princess. Gemma realized Crystal was going to strangle the wench, and she’d calmly suggested the woman head down to Jazzy Joe’s for coffee. The rest of her day hadn’t been much better. Plus, she’d spent the morning overthinking everything about her relationship with Bear, which was probably why she’d freaked out when she’d really been dying to kiss him.

She parked in front of the fabric store. There were some things that just didn’t fit in the world as Crystal knew it, and Bear Whiskey clad in a tight black T-shirt that said Whiskey Bro’s across his massive chest, a pair of snug, low-slung black jeans, and leather boots strutting into Jennilyn’s Fabric was on the top of the list.

She pulled her list from her bag as his eyes coasted over the store. What was he thinking, coming with her? That was dedication she could not ignore. The epitome of commitment.

That is Bear.

My Bear?


She toyed with that as he draped his arm over her shoulder. She wondered what had taken him so long. She’d expected him to do it the second she’d stepped from the car, but he was probably in shock that they were actually going to a fabric store. She smiled to herself as he leaned closer and rubbed his nose along her cheek.

“Can I help you?” she asked with a laugh.

“You smell like jelly beans, and I happen to have a thing for sugary goodness.”

“You can’t seriously have that good a sense of smell.”

He pressed an unexpected, and deliciously warm, kiss to her cheek and reached into her purse, withdrawing a bag of jelly beans. “Hoarding? Or were we going to hide these later in your body and let me find them?” He moved his mouth beside her ear and whispered, “Blindfolded. With my hands tied behind my back.”

He nudged her deeper into the store. Holy crap. She’d stopped walking. Was she breathing? And was that a thing? Blindfolded? Hands tied behind his back? Oh, the control that would give her. She’d be at no risk of being overpowered. But would she want that much control? She imagined herself lying naked on her bed, watching as his greedy mouth moved over her breasts, down her belly, and she felt herself go damp.

No, no, no.

Ice cream. Ice baths. Cow poop!


Her body continued vibrating from the inside out. This was bad. Really, really bad. Like a virus she couldn’t shake. She needed an anti-Bear pill. Stat!

Crystal Moon didn't have the perfect childhood everyone dreams about. When her father died, her life was tossed into an uproar. Going off to college was a dream come true, until it wasn't. Starting over on her own was tough but she did it on her terms. When Bear Whiskey makes his attraction to her known, she doesn't know if she's ready for what he's offering.

Bear was instantly attracted to Crystal the first time he saw her. She was always telling him she wasn't interested, something he would have believed if her eyes didn't tell a different story. Crystal is intent on keeping the walls up and Bear out, until his daily reminders and one sweet moment when she needed it the most are enough to show cracks in that wall around her heart.

I adored this story. Bear is this big, tough, biker boy, but also the sweetest, sexiest character. Crystal has a past to overcome but it doesn't stop her from going for her dreams. Together, Bear and Crystal are explosive. I can't wait to see where the Whiskey siblings go from here.

I rarely give five stars, but if I could give more than five for this book, I would.

Bear Whiskey is the kind of guy you only dream about. He's focused, successful, and cute. And he's focused on Crystal. He senses there is something different about her and he doesn't want to scare her off.

Crystal likes Bear, but she's afraid to commit. She's been hurt in the past and has had to reinvent herself several times over to get out from under the stigma those hurts have wrought.

Bear eases Crystal's fears while she soothes his soul. She's the warmth and security he didn't know he needed and he's the man to slay her dragons.

I know, my review is sappy, but it is what it is. And what it is, is a darn good book.

Hot, hot, HOT read! Melissa Foster has become one of my favorite go-to authors, she has a way of weaving a story that will have you unable to put the book down until the very end!

Bear and Crystal have crazy chemistry and Bear knows that Crystal is the woman for him from page one, but Crystal has had a rough past and it’s going to take a lot to talk her into giving him a chance. Crystal didn’t grow up with the family that Bear did and learning to trust is her biggest feat to overcome. Bear won’t let Crystal get away and spends every day working to prove that he’s in it for the long haul, their story is just so sweet!

I can’t say enough how much I love both Bear and Crystal’s characters. Bear is an overprotective, sometimes overbearing, alpha sweetheart! While Crystal is his perfect balance with her snarky attitude and quick witted responses. I really didn’t think that this couple would be able to compete with my love of Gemma and Tru, but they definitely do – I love the entire Whiskey family and can’t wait for more from them!

This is a super good story, which readers of Tru Blue will recognise as being a companion to that story. So happy to get to understand Crystal better, as she was a mystery for sure.

As any of Ms. Foster's fans will know, her books are really satisfying reads which release feelings of real happiness and warm the heart, as well as prompting debate over big issues. In this book, we certainly have a chemistry laden romance, which is a long time in the making, and a secret which has been festering for much, much longer. I love that even though Whiskey and Crystal have completely different backgrounds, they are able to appreciate that neither was perfect. And they both work hard to make their future together different.

A very enjoyable escape from reality, into a world of hot bikers, fun friends, and a camaraderie built on trust, love, and integrity. Can't wait to see who comes to their happily ever after next – those Whiskey siblings are all interesting in their own right.
