Driving Whiskey Wild (A Sexy Standalone Romance) by Melissa Foster

A captivating new USA Today bestselling 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.

Brandon "Bullet" Whiskey is the 3rd book from this amazing series that's not to be missed. It is an emotional, sweet read that still has the serious heat! we love from Melissa Foster. Bullet is definitely the kinda guy that shy Finlay should stay away from but as complete polar opposites they are very much attracted to eachother, there's only been one other connection that Finlay had with someone in the past and there were "sparks" BUT with Bullet its like "Lightning" and extremely beautiful. Finlay intrigues Bullet like no other he has never met anyone like this feminine, smart little waif who was a hair more than five feet......" While Bullet is rough, gruff, intimidating and has a heart of gold willing to protect his family and those he considers family - once the Whiskeys take you in, your in and nothing will make you want to leave. I have loved all Melissa Fosters books since The Snow Sisters and once again you will not be disappointed with her latest novel, go on jump on the #BulletTrain......

Book 3 in The Whiskeys Series and this is fast becoming one of my favourite reads, once again Melissa Foster has given us another book boyfriend to fall for this time it’s Special Forces veteran and Dark Knights Motorcycle Club member Bullet Whiskey. Bullet lives to protect the bar, his family and the residents of Peaceful Harbour, he hides his secrets, his PTSD and his painful past well and he never lets anyone get to close to him ...until he meets Finlay Wilson a beautiful sweet girl his sister hires to expand the biker bar, he try’s his best to get her to turn around and walk away but when she stays he finds himself falling for her. Finlay is everything Bullet has never wanted but he can’t walk away from the girl who’s afraid of motorcycles and his dog..... This is a beautifully written love story, it’s Bullet and Finlay’s journey, it’s about him learning to trust and open up and it’s about her learning to put her fears behind her. Two opposites who compliment and complete each other, two people who bring out the best in each other and heal the wounds they both hide from the rest of the world. I love the family love and loyalty that is so prominent in this book and this series, I love the strong characters,and I love Melissa Foster’s writing she draws you in and you find yourself up all night because you need to take in every page and every chapter without missing a beat. Looking forward to next book in The Whiskeys .

4.5 Star Review of Driving Whiskey Wild (The Whiskeys #3) by Melissa Foster The third book in the series and was just as strong and interesting as the previous books. Told with dual POV’s I really liked the main characters of (Brandon) Bullet and (Finlay) Fins. This series is all about the Whiskey family and their close friends. It is a s story of love, hope and friendship, of family, not always related by blood and one which I thoroughly enjoyed. It’s true when they say that opposites attract and such is the case with Bullet and Finlay. Both have been damaged by loss and yet through it all they are both determined to love and protect their family and friends. Finlay brought out the vulnerable and tender side of Bullet and some of the scenes were heartbreakingly beautiful to read. Melissa Foster did a great job of covering a variety of issues including PTSD, grief, survivors guilt and more.Driving Whiskey Wild is a story that shows how time and love can heal and help a person to find happiness again. As I have found with the other books in this series, the characters were well written,yet flawed, making them easy to relate to on numerous levels. I particularly enjoy the banter between the friends as Bullet and Finlay slowly explore their feelings as their relationship gains momentum. Driving Whiskey Wild has a great deal of humour and romance that will bring a smile to your face. I cannot wait for more in this series and I believe up next is Uncle Boney’s story.

This is by far my favorite Melissa Foster series and probably book thus far. First of all the hero, Bullet, is a war veteran with PTSD. My husband is the same, so I could really relate and sympathize with him. I absolutely loved the fact that he had a great big old dog named Tinkerbell that helped him with that PTSD. They couldn't sleep without each other! Bullet carries some heavy memories and guilt with him and sees himself as protector of those he cares about. Finlay is just a super sweet character. She's afraid of many things, but steps out of her comfort zone to accept a date with Bullet. His tattoos frighten her, his dog frightens her, his motorcycle frightens her and a lot of times his attitude frightens her. On the other hand--he calls her Lollipop, sleeps with his dog and has a habit of saving people. How can she hold out against that? When their pasts merge together can they overcome the shared trauma and move past it for the HEA they each deserve? This was a great story by Melissa Foster and a great narration by Paul Woodson!

ValerieStuckInBooks More than 1 year ago
I listened to the audio book on this one. Paul Woodson, the narrator, has a deep sexy voice that I mostly enjoyed. I am pretty picky about narrators. They can make or break a book for me. I would say that Paul does a really good male voice but struggles more with female voices. I think the ideal situation would be for him to read the male parts and a female to read the female parts. That would make a really good combination. The problem I had was that all his females voices sounded the same and sometimes they sound...I don't know kinda childlike. But it wasn't enough for me not to enjoy the book. As for the story itself, I haven't read the books prior to this one in the series. This book can stand alone though you do meet Bear and Crystal from book two. They are part of the Whiskey family and I liked them both. We don't meet Truman and Gemma from book one, though. I really liked the whole family aspect of this story. They own a bar together and they look out for each other. They are all part of each other's lives. That was nice. If you're reading this for the motorcycle club aspect of it, I'd pass on this one. It's not a big part of the story. Yeah, it's mentioned and church comes up once but it's really not the focus of the story. Sure Bullet is the big tough motorcycle riding kinda guy. He has that strong desire to protect everyone he cares about. He's ex-military with some serious PSTD and that seems to define him more than the motorcycle club. If anything, I'd say this was a military kinda book. Speaking of Bullet, I loved him. He's the kind of guy that takes care of those he loves and feels too much guilt when he can't protect people. He pulls people out of burning cars and tries to keep his family safe. He forgets to let others help him and he remembers every buddy or even just met guy who died in the military around him. I did really fall for him. Finlay is nice. Bullet calls her lollipop and I liked that. She struggles to deal with the rough side of Bullet and has a fear of dogs and motorcycles. That makes for some problems as Bullet has a dog that helps him with his PSTD. She soon falls for Bullet's charms though and I did really like her. There is a lot of heat in this story. If you enjoy many and detailed hotness scenes, this book has that in spades. I wanted to like the story more than I did. You see, things felt forced in a few places. The characters acting just outside of their character. Even the climax was just a little bit off. Nothing bad, mind you, just off. Maybe it was that things were just too sweet. Too easily falling into place. While I enjoyed it, it just lacked the strength of books I really love. It's okay. It was nice to listen to one day as I did my cores but I won't be listening to it again. And I don't think I'll be reading books 1 and 2 or going on with the series. It was just okay. And let's be real. I have too many books I really want to read to spend time on just okay. You can decide for yourself and others have felt differently but this one is just okay for me.

Just like sugar and salt are staples in my kitchen, Melissa Foster books are staples in my book collection. She is definitely one of my favorite authors and she has never dissapointed. That’s why I was super excited to get to read her latest book Driving Whiskey Wild. This book is #3 in The Whiskeys erotic, romance series. This series focuses on the Whiskey family of Peaceful Harbor. In this book we meet Brandon ‘Bullet’ Whiskey. He is a special forces veteran and bartender. And may I add he is smoking HOT!!! I did just mention that this is book #3, however it can absolutely be read as a stand alone book. I must admit that Bullet is my favorite Whiskey so far. The story starts when Bullet’s sister Dixie offers Finlay Wilson a chance to redesign the family owned Whiskey’s Bro’s Bar. This story really drew me in from the beginning, but I absolutely loved that Bullet had no idea he was about to meet the woman he’s fantasied about. This is a very hot and steamy, positive story of friendship family and romance. This was one of those books that I just couldn’t put down until I had finished. And it definitively left me wanting more, I can’t wait for the next book!

Every time I read a new book by Ms. Foster I think 'this can't beat the last', and they do every time. I can confidentally say that Bullett is my #1 book boyfriend of this year, I love him! I love that Finlay is so confident. No matter the situtation she finds herself in, she doesn't let anyone stop her, even a room full of big bad bikers. Bullet takes the strong silent type to an extreme but it works so well for him. He is so loyal and protective of those he sees as family. I was so happy when he finally decided to put his wants first for once. I was not ready for this book to end, but I love that we can see Finlay and Bullet in future books. I can't wait for Wicked Whiskey Love!

Whiskey at first glance is hard, rough around the edges, and someone not to be messed with. Whiskey wants nothing of Finlay's plans to revamp the family bar, which includes adding a menu and staff. Beyond the surface, Whiskey is a damaged, protective and caring war veteran. Finlay is determined to have her catering business take off and her starting point is revamping the local biker bar but has to deal with the constant rebuttals from Whiskey who doesn't want things to change. At their first interaction, Whiskey made a blunt come on to Finlay and while it's hard to erase first impressions, the more time spent together working on the bar and helping a local family, the more Finlay sees the true Whiskey. They say that opposites attract, but when dangerous meets sweet, is it possible that a romantic connection can be made? Can similarities be sparked? It is said that "... I think broken is the wrong word for people like us. I think we were affected and hurt, but not broken." This Melissa Foster story shows us that first impressions are not always right and that we should take the time to dig deeper to know people. *An advance copy of this book was provided to me for review purposes only, at my request, all opinions expressed are my own*

The Whiskey Family is tough, tattooed, and run a biker club. I love everything about them. Along with all of that they are true to themselves, have strong family values, and work hard for what they want. Driving Whiskey Wild is Bullet’s story. He is fighting so many demons. PTSD from what he saw and experienced in war is the cause of many of his issues. Bullet just needs the right woman to help him beat those demons. I like that both Bullet and Finlay have experienced life. They have had rough times and still managed to come out on the otherside. They are not privileged, they have had to work to earn their way in the world. They both have reasons for not feeling like they could be loved again. Together Bullet and Finlay just make sense. They can understand each other, support each other, and love each other because they are alike in so many ways. If you are familiar with Melissa Foster and are looking for a sweet, loving, tender book Driving Whiskey Wild is not it. This is a hardcore, in your face, tough book. There are many sweet, loving, and tender moments but there is also a lot of swearing and hard conversations being had.

Melissa Foster's Whiskeys series is back, and I must say that I've missed reading about this particular collection of characters. I liked getting to know Bullet better as well as seeing how Finlay would fare with someone like him, but then we've also got the supporting characters who seem to always vie for my attention simply because they pique my interest. Of course, there are also characters from past books that make reappearances, and seeing how far they've come in their own lives put a smile on my face. As has always been the case with Foster's books, family is a continuing theme, and the love each of the main characters have had from the first book to this third one highlight the unique bond they all share with those who mean most. The first few chapters were a bit slow-going, but when things picked up, I found myself fully engaged with both Bullet and Finlay and their story. I know there's at least one more novel that's going to be released later this year as part of the series--Wicked Whiskey Love due in November!--and I'm excited to see if it lives up to expectations for it. For now, Driving Whiskey Wild gets four stars. ♥

Melissa Foster NEVER fails to disappoint when writing a new book! This one was absolutely NO different. After watching a very popular Motorcycle Club TV series, I have really gained interest in Motorcycle club books so one thing that absolutely drew me to this series of Melissa Fosters is that it was about a motorcycle club. I hadn’t ever read any “MC” books so I was interested. I’m glad I found them! There was a twist in this book that I absolutely did NOT see coming and I ran everyone in my house away from me from bawling so much! Whoa! I will absolutely MOST DEFINITELY be reading this book over and over! Well done, Melissa Foster!!

Bad Boys sometimes are hiding a heart of gold--and Good Girls--well--sometimes they just fall for those Bad Boys. Finlay sees through this giant of a man pretty quickly and it really does get hot and heavy. I mean really--who wouldn't fall for a guy who not only loves but is great with kids and animals!! They both have under lying issues which they have to uncover then overcome if they want to stay together--this is quite a whirlwind of a courtship! I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

If you haven’t read any of Melissa Foster’s books yet you’re really missing out! I’ve read a lot of them and I’ve loved them all. I’ve love the Whiskey family especially and I couldn’t wait to read Driving Whiskey Wild. Bullet and Finlay’s story is a heartwarming story. That draws you in and won’t let you going until it’s done then leaves you smiling and excited for the next Whiskey book. Bullet is this big, tattooed biker ex military guy that can intimidate anyone but not Finlay. He has this huge heart and is a protector to all things living. Finlay is tough and isn’t afraid of anything or anyone especially not Bullet. She’s sweet and loved to cook. She charms everyone she meets. Together you can’t help but love them. They both overcame a horrible traumatic past and are still dealing with the trauma and ptsd everyday. I love that they help each other get stronger and better and open up. That surprising twist of who Bullet tried to save when he almost died in war made me go omg what!!! I absolutely loved this book and definitely recommend it to anyone who loves romance and great storyline books. Plus check out some of Melissa’s other amazing books while you’re there!

4.5 Stars!! From swoon worthy romances to alphas with a heart of gold, there is nothing that author Melissa Foster can’t write. And Driving Whiskey Wild is the latest book of hers to steal my heart and give me all the feels. I never saw Driving Whiskey Wild coming. This book grabbed a hold of me from the very beginning and held my heart hostage. Bullet is broody, mysterious and has an even tougher exterior. He loves those he lets into his life fiercely, but is haunted by his past. So, when sweeter than sweet Finlay comes into his life, he is determined to get rid of her. Only Finlay is not the kind of woman who is put off easily. She may look sweet on the outside, but isn’t about to let Bullet scare her away. She is the total opposite of Bullet, but wild horses couldn’t keep these two away… Bullet is the kind of guy you can’t help but be drawn to. His presence makes you just want to know more about him. What makes him tick? Why does he feel the need to keep everyone away? What happened to him? And the more you get to know him, the more you see that he is fiercely protective. When he loves, he loves hard and deep. He is a giant with a heart of gold. And even though he knows he’s got more demons than he knows how to handle and that he should stay away from Finlay, he just can’t. Finlay has the biggest heart and sees the good in everyone. She is the light in the dark and understands the need to hide the scars. She knows she is not the kind of woman that Bullet is used to, but she can’t stay away from him. She has to see where their connection will go. And let me tell you, the tension and chemistry just oozes off the two of them. Their pull is irresistible and will keep you begging for more. I just loved this two together. I enjoyed seeing them grow as a couple and overcome the obstacles along the way. Driving Whiskey Wild was everything I wanted in a Melissa Foster novel and then some. It was well written and entertaining. I was captivated from page one and just had to devour this book in a single sitting. The characters were real and perfectly flawed. I loved that this book had a touch of darkness to it, but still had the light and family feeling that I have come to know and love from this author. Driving Whiskey Wild had just the right amount of steam, alpha moments and light drama. I loved getting lost in this book and think that it is a wonderful addition to The Whiskey Series. I can not wait to get my hands on the next book in this series and see who’s heart falls next.

3.5 stars I LOVED this series. I am just not so sure about Bullet. I thought his character was going to go in a different direction than it did. To be honest, his one was a slow read for me. I enjoyed it, but there was not too much drama. It was very sweet and short for me.
Jenthomason1109 More than 1 year ago
Driving Whiskey Wild is full of chemistry and romance, but it is also so much more. Bullet is struggling with his past, guilt, and the need to protect everyone in his life. Finlay is struggling with the loss of her first love and the desire to build her life despite the heartbreak she has endured. Melissa Foster’s incredible writing and dialogue demonstrates a great deal of needed patience, honesty, understanding, and communication between this couple that adds the perfect amount of conflict and suspense. Don’t worry though, there is plenty of her trademark humor and the sexy, steamy scenes that will drive you crazy! I loved every single word of this novel and have absolutely no criticism. The characters, plot, conflict, resolution, and overall feeling after reading all add up to perfection. I cannot even explain how happy I am to have read Driving Whiskey Wild and participated in this campaign, and of course, I am chomping at the bit for the next installment about Bones!!!

I absolutely love the 'Whiskey' series. Every single book can be read as a stand alone, but dang, they all rock it. Driving was no exception. I loved this book. Finlay and Bullet's story is about much more than romance. It's about second chances, finding the perfect someone and accepting that. Of course there was the awesomely hot sex scenes, that's a given. I highly recommend this book! Can't wait for Bones story!

I am so in love with Bullet Whiskey and am kicking myself for not starting The Whiskeys series sooner. This was so freaking fantastic. I loved every second! Bullet and Finlay were awesome and had the best interactions. There was a fun mix of animosity and chemistry between the two and I love how Finlay stood her ground with Bullet. She's just a wonderful force of nature that made me smile. I loved her strength and perseverance. And Bullet? A new book boyfriend for sure! He was so fantastic. All gruff with attitude but he was so sweet and caring, such a protector. I loved watching them fall for one another, fighting those feelings and everything that was discovered along the way. They just had so many great moments together, it made me incredibly happy. Bullet and Finlay both have quite a past and there was a lot of emotion as everything was learned. I got choked up on more than one occasion just feeling it all. It was also really entertaining, there were these really nice lighter moments that totally made me chuckle and smile. And of course love and romance... the gruff ones who think they can't do romance seem to do it pretty darn well. Bullet totally made me swoon! The writing was great. I loved the details and pace. I was so into everything. It had the perfect balance of everything I love in a story. It was sweet and fun with the perfect mix of hotness, emotion, and love. I loved all the secondary characters and how full they made the story feel. I am so excited to go back and read the previous two stories in the series. This one made me excited to read them all. This was so just incredibly entertaining and I was thrilled with the conclusion. Finlay and Bullet are wonderful. His gruff to her sweet made the perfect combination. I absolutely loved this!

Driving Whiskey Wild is one of my favorite reads. The classic opposites-attract characters made me love this book. Finlay Wilson is trying to start up her life again in her hometown. Finlay is trying to start her business up and get her name out there for catering. She takes on a job helping remodel the Whiskey Bro's. A biker bar seems very out of element for good-girl Finlay. I love that she's proud of who she is that's she's comfortable enough to be herself around the bar. Bullet Whiskey is very loyal to his family and friends. As gruff as Bullet can be, he's very soft hearted. He reminds me of a giant teddy bear. I've been looking forward to his story and I am not disappointed. Bullet and Finlay are very opposite of each other that communication is key. I like how much Finlay pushes for open communication. Both characters have their fears and demons to deal with. Together, they can face their past and present to better their future. The Whiskeys are one of my favorite families that Melissa Foster writes about. I received this book as an Advance Reader's copy. I volunteered to leave my review. All opinions are my own.

I am on the fence about this book. I read the synopsis and was totally intrigued. Bullet sucked me in from the start. Finlay played the resistant female perfectly. So, good to go, right? Well, then it became insta-everyting. Instantly they were pouring out their hearts. Everything they resisted was thrown to the side with no real explanation. They could've been together from the start. I just feel if you put this huge barrier as the conflict then it should have a logical resolution. I just couldn't connect after that, though I did finish. It could've worked for me more if the character were more developed based on their initial conflict.
