Mad About Moon is another page turner. I could not put this book down. I have, though, had a love affair with the Whiskey family since I first met them. Each book seems to get better and better. Moon is not truly a Whiskey but they are all over this book. He has basically been adopted by the Whiskeys as he has made his life better. Josie is sister to a soon-to-be Whiskey. That makes this book totally Whiskey. Moon and Josie met once before. She was just shy of her 18th birthday but Moon believed she was older than that. The two of them had very intense feelings. Then, when Moon showed up to see her the next day he was warned off her by Brian, the man who would become Josie's husband. To have a second chance at what younger people may not have thought was love is amazing. Melissa Foster does great second chance love in Mad About Moon. You have to pick up a copy and read all about Josie and Moon. I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

As always with the Whiskeys, the latest book packs an emotional punch. There isn’t a lot of drama between Moon and Josie, which I appreciate in a romance, but their lives have not been easy and they have to face a lot from their pasts. Josie was able to escape her abusive parents and find a happy life but seeing her siblings again means that she needs to decide if she’s willing to address old wounds. Even here it is handled with depth but not melodrama – the past comes calling but it doesn’t run their lives. I appreciate that a lot as Josie comes to terms with what she thought she knew about her past. Jed has managed to come to terms with his own past and the things that he’s done, thanks to his friends, family, and the Dark Knights. And now that he’s got a chance to reconnect with Josie and make a better life for himself, he stumbles over a couple of kids that are pretty much him as a teen. Being able to help others is such a huge part of who Moon is and Foster works that in so perfectly here, finding a way for him to have a purpose he can embrace. Foster knows how to deliver depth and dimension to her characters, their lives, and how they connect with, love, & support those around them – you truly feel the family that they’ve created, regardless of blood, and it makes you want to be a part of their community. Packed with humor, heat, and complex relationships, Mad About Moon once again allows readers to fall into a story just brimming with emotion. **Review given honestly and freely after receipt of a reader copy. This opinion is completely my own and was not influenced in any way.**

I LOVE the Whiskey series, and Moon and Josie’s story just might be my favorite of them. Josie is one of those characters you can relate to. She’s guarded, but it’s completely understandable with her past. She underestimates her value, and it’s kinda refreshing. Moon is perfect for her. A bit “damaged”, he’s turned his life around and is really an inspiration to those around him. He’s the perfect fit to the Dark Knights, and the perfect man for Josie. This story drew me in from the beginning, and I loved catching up with previous characters. A fantastic must read that I would definitely recommend!

Mad About Moon is another heart-tugging, fantastic read in The Whiskeys series by Melissa Foster. Jed Moon is not a Whiskey by birth but the way they take him in makes me feel like he could have always been a Whiskey sibling. He's the actual sibling to Crystal whose story we read in Truly, Madly, Whiskey. So, I have to say that I'm so happy that we are finally getting Jed's love story.  Melissa Foster creates real-life characters in her stories that push and pull on your heartstrings. While there are some struggles in Mad About Moon, most are in the past and we are able to see the evolution of love between both Josie and Jed from the beginning. Jed is sweet, sexy, and has the biggest heart. Always worrying about others more than himself.  While Josie battles with guilt over her past, the real star of this book shines through. Hail is Josie's son and he steals the show. Jed treads carefully, but Hail runs full force into his life. The way that Melissa Foster takes us on this touching journey is just one of the reasons I return to her works time and time again. Mad About Moon is a second-chance romance with Foster's signature happy ending.

Melissa Foster has my heart Mad About Moon with this amazingly flawed, yet perfect couple. Jed and Josie have lived their lives in a full circle and found their way back to one another. Their flaws, mistakes, and past have prepared them for the strong re-connection. Jed's past would lead most to believe that he's incapable of the sweet and giving heart that he uses to give back to so many others. It's expected that Josie will continue to keep people at arm's length after her own past. The pull that Moon has on Josie helps realign her with all the good that life has to offer. The support characters give an incredible base to this story, offering fun moments that make you laugh and others will pour tears down your cheeks. I've always had a hard time believing that second chances are a good thing -- but Melissa definitely has me re-evaluating my thoughts and opinions on this. Her writing brings a lot of real-life situations to life (while still fulfilling our hidden craving for delicious characters!).I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

Josie (JoJo) is on the fence about reuniting with her sister, due to her growing guilt for abandoning her at the hospital after her accident and believing that she had a perfect life. With the help of a new friend, she finds the strength to reconnect with her family... Jed (Moon) is prospective Dark Knight and will do anything to make sure Jojo and her son Hail are safe and get back on their feet. His efforts are beyond his duty as a Dark Knight because Jojo has been the only person he could be himself with. Imagine a closed door being opened and you see the man you haven't forgotten in years behind it? I know my heart would stop and then pound like crazy. This story of Jojo and Moon will have you holding your breath until it wraps up, with family bonding, surprises, joy, and love. Another great love story from Melissa Foster, I am never disappointed.

Ooh! Just when I thought I had found my favorite book in the Whiskeys series, Melissa Foster one-ups herself with the fifth and newest novel. Mad About Moon is a story about finding love not just once but twice and having another opportunity to see if the spark two people had years ago still exists. This series has gotten better and better with each novel Foster has released, and book five came THIS close to getting a five-plus-starred rating, but that was due more to personal preference--more on that later in my review. This book had all the feels, making for a thoroughly great read about how one person can find a first love and a last love and both being true. This was also a story about family, and how those bonds can still exist even if they're frayed from years apart. Melissa Foster is a master when it comes to combining family and romance, and she's done it once again with Josie and Jed's--aka Jojo and Moon's--story. Dare I say that The Whiskeys has become my second favorite series from her? This did come achingly close to scoring a higher rating, but I held back because of a revelation later in the story that I wasn't a fan of. Again, this was a personal preference issue and had nothing to do with the writing itself. So, five stars for Mad About Moon. ♥

Filled with heart and sexy goodness! Melissa Foster never fails to bring a magical couple to life in front of our eyes when we open a new book from her, and this one was no exception. The Whiskey family has been pretty spectacular so far, and the guy that they consider one of the family is just as kind-hearted and awesome. Really engrossing characters, back story and connection. Loved Moon, JoJo and little Hail! Josie Beckley never thought she'd find herself living in a homeless shelter with her young son, but after the unexpected death of her husband, things just simply fell apart. Brian was her rock. He saved her when she had no one and the love he showered on her and their son was a shining light for her. Now she's trying to pick up the pieces of life again and get back on her feet. Her estranged siblings have been trying to reconnect with her, and she thinks she's finally at a place in her head where she can let that happen. Jed Moon is shocked to see the woman he knew for one glorious night as JoJo years ago show up at the Christmas festivities with the Whiskey family. He has never met another woman whom he connected with like he did with her. She saw through all of the filler and saw the true guy in his heart. He steps up to make sure she and her son get settled, and ends up falling for her hook, line and sinker. There's a lot to overcome in getting her to open up her heart, but he's willing to wait!

I'm MAD ABOUT MOON!!! There is just something about a man that will put everything on hold to help a woman and her child without expecting anything in return. Jed Moon knew Josie years ago but lost touch with her after their brief time together. Fast forward several years and Josie is now living in a homeless shelter with her young son after the death of her husband. Josie and each of her siblings were abused as children, Josie being the youngest was spared the worst of it because the older ones got it the most but after they each left her parents turned on her and that's when she ran away. Josie is starting to reconnect with her siblings which we have met in earlier books but she is hesitant because it's been so many years since she has seen them. This hurt my heart as well as warmed it. It's hard to describe the feelings a person has after reconnecting with siblings they haven't seen in years but believe me, while you're hesitant you are hopeful. This story is about love and forgiveness and second chances and perfect endings. Mad About Moon will have you holding out hope that the universe will get things right and give back what was lost. This story had a twist to it that I had in the back of my mind before it was even hinted at, I was she going to go there? and she did! LOL As with other books by Melissa Foster this is easy to recommend especially if you enjoy the second-chance-at-love trope. Each book in the series can be read as a standalone but I always recommend starting from the beginning because once you meet one of the Whiskeys you'll want to meet them all. Happy Reading!!! **I have voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book**

You just have to love the Whiskey men--really rough and tough and kind of scary looking--but cream puffs underneath. Nobody and I mean nobody messes with anyone in this bike clubs town or the areas that they deem under their protection! The guys in this club are not all related by blood--but they might as well be. And heaven help the person that messes with one of their girlfriends! Jed fell in love at first sight with Josie--but then she disappears. She reappears years later at the door of her sister who she hasn't seen in ages--he thinks it is her and the re-connection begins. Both of them have backgrounds that might have you heading for the tissues--There is also Josies son-- Of course there are problems along the way to their happily after after--but friends and family are there to help them along!

4.5 stars--MAD ABOUT MOON is the fifth instalment in Melissa Foster’s contemporary, adult THE WHISKEYS erotic, romance series focusing on the Whiskey family and friends of Peaceful Harbor. This is twenty-eight year old, bartender/mechanic Jed Moon, and twenty-four year old, single mother Josie Beckley’s story line. MAD ABOUT MOON can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous instalment is revealed where necessary but I recommend reading the series in order for back story and cohesion involving our story line heroine. 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, and Jed Moon is their latest prospect. Josie is Sarah (Wicked Whiskey Love) and Scott Beckley’s younger sister. Told from dual third person perspectives (Josie and Jed) MAD ABOUT MOON follows the rekindling relationship and romance between twenty-eight year old, bartender/mechanic Jed Moon, and twenty-four year old, single mother Josie Beckley. Approximately six years earlier, Jed Moon met seventeen year old Josie Beckley, and it was instant love for our story line hero. A one-night stand ended when Jed discovered our heroine’s age, and in the ensuing years neither one forgot about that night. Fast forward to present day wherein Josie, a now widowed mother of one, struggles to reacquaint herself with the family she believes left her behind. What ensues is the rebuilding friendship and growing love between Josie and Moon, and the potential fall-out as Josie continues to struggle with what was, and what may be. Both Jed and Josie’s pasts, and their histories are dark and heart breaking. At thirteen years of age, Josie found herself alone with an abusive father when her brother and sister ran without looking back. Jed Moon struggled to keep his family together but when his father died, his alcoholic mother destroyed what as left of his heart and his love. The relationship between Josie and Jed is one of second chances; a rekindling friendship that grows into something more. The $ex scenes are intimate and passionate, without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including Josie’s son Hail: Dr. Wayne ‘Bones’ Whiskey, and Jed’s sister Sarah, and her children Bradley and Lila (Wicked Whiskey Love #4): Josie and Sarah’s brother Scott Beckley; Special Forces Veteran Bullet Whiskey and Finlay Wilson (Driving Whiskey Wild #3), biker/mechanic Bear Whiskey and his wife (Jed’s sister) Crystal (Truly, Madly, Whiskey 2); Bones’, Bullet & Bear’s sister Dixie as well as their parents Biggs and Wren (Red) Whiskey; Truman & Gemma (Tru Blue #1) ; Truman’s brothers and sister, Quincy, Lincoln and Kennedy; Ice Cream shop owner Penny Wilson; several members of the Dark Knights MC including Desmond ‘Diesel’ Black, Crow Burke, Charlie ‘Court’ Sharpe, Tomas ‘Tex’ Sharpe, as well as Dr. Jon Butterscotch; as well as the introduction of Crystal and Jed’s mother Pamela Moon. MAD ABOUT MOON is a story of family & love; of friendship & support; of second chances & more. The premise is captivating and entertaining; the characters are colorful and energetic-Melissa’s story line children are delightful and adorable; the romance is seductive and intense. MAD ABOUT MOON is a wonderful read for the romantic.

Sigh, more Whiskey Men to love. This is Jed Moon’s story. Yep, he isn’t actually a Whiskey but Red and Bigg think of him as their own son so I will think of his as a Whiskey Man. Like a true Whiskey, he is strong, he is alpha, and he has the biggest heart ever. He had once met a girl and fell in love. When fate steps in and he meets this girl again he knows that he cannot let her go again. Josie has a history that she is running from. She ran from her parents, lost her husband, and has been living in a shelter while trying to find a job, get a place to stay and keep her son safe. Jed enters her life, he brings feelings that she had kept hidden and hopes that she cannot believe would come true. I liked that Josie wasn’t the perfect person, she had struggles, she’d lived a rough life, and yet she was willing to try to live again. In true Melissa Foster style, these two opened their hearts to each other but not easily. They pushed, they shoved, and they worked towards finding they're happy ever after. When they finally opened their lives and hearts they did it wholly. They held nothing back and gave everything they had to each other.

This was my first Whiskey book. I loved Jed & Josie's second chance romance. They have firey chemistry. Jed has always remembered his Little Red. And Josie has always remembered him. They both had their detours but now is their time. Filled with love, friends, family, reunions, children, family by choice and by blood. Loved this sweet, steamy love story. I received a review copy. I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

Wow! I'm new to the Whiskey Family but sure plan to catch up on all their stories soon! Jed and Josie are amazing! They've both had lives filled with lose and tough times but have worked so hard to make their lives better. When they reconnect after many years apart the electricity is still there between them. With Jed's patience and encouragement (as well as the whole Whiskey clan) Josie gets to know her siblings again and starts to make some of her dreams come true. What a fantastic story of 2nd chances and the strength of love and trust! I received and ARC and am voluntarily leaving my review.

I’m over the Moon for Jed Moon! Mad about Moon is a wonderful second chance story. There are lots of second chances for Jed and Josie, individually and as a couple. I love this story so much, I had so many emotions going while reading, I laughed, I cried, I felt empathy, excitement and joy. I've enjoyed the Whiskey's so much with their sense of the protective family, with so much love and understanding. This book is one that I would read over and over again, it was so good!! Melissa Foster has a way of capturing your attention on the first page and not letting you go until the end. Thank you Melissa Foster for another wonderful story!

4.5 stars Mad About Moon by Melissa Foster is such a good read. The storyline is beautifully written, well paced, lovable and relatable characters and I loved the overall family and community love and support they all shared. I loved Moon/Jed and Josie together, they've been through so much heartache and pain it warmed my heart watching them reconnect, find internal peace and fall in love. Mad About Moon is a wonderful addition to The Whiskeys series, each book has touched my heart and I highly recommend them all!

Neither Josie or Jed have had an easy life. Both have had a lot of people who have let them down. The two are perfect for each other. Their story is full of hope. I loved Moon. He has had a rough road but is such a caregiver. He wants to help everyone he can. Josie had a horrible childhood and ended up on her own young. But she had some good people in her life to help her out. But life kept throwing her bad luck and she ended up in a women's shelter with her son. Her story of reconnecting with her family and building friendships was wonderful. I really enjoyed this story and all of the characters in it. Melissa Foster is great at building communities of characters that you want to be a part of. I received an advance copy in return for an honest review.

This series continues to surprise me. I was in love with Bones's book, Wicked Whiskey Love. I mean, I was obsessed with Bones as soon as his character was introduced in the series. As far as I was concerned, nobody could top him. Then I read Mad About Moon. Josie was introduced in Wicked Whiskey Love as Sarah's younger sister who is living in a homeless shelter with her young son. Based on Sarah and her older brother Scott's backstory, I pretty much had Josie's backstory figured out my mind. However, I was really surprised by how off I was and in a good way. A lot of people (including myself) have a lot of preconceived notions about homeless people and it was great to have them completely debunked. Josie's situation could literally happen to anybody. It doesn't matter what kind of environment you grew up in. Sometimes your life can just change in an instance. And oh my god, I love Jed. It wasn't just his devotion to Josie and her son, it was his devotion and loyalty to everyone and how badly he was trying to make something out of himself. I probably wouldn't fit in with the Whiskey family in real life. I'm too straitlaced for them, but they really made me want to belong.

Both Josie and Jed (Moon) had horrible childhoods, Josie more so than Moon. One night at a field party when Josie was 18, had a lasting effect on Moon. Fast foward several years later, after being on her own and wanting to reconnect with her siblings, Josie went to her sister's home on Christmas day. Little did she know, her life would change for the better. Can past hurts and a fierce love help Josie and Moon get the happily ever after they have both dreamt about? This is a heart warming story about love, forgiveness and second chances. You will not be disappointed! I thorough enjoyed Mad About Moon!

I've been waiting to read about Jed and Josie since each one was introduced in the previous Whiskey books. I was shocked to find out that the two of them had a past together (albeit one night) but I think it made their reunion so much sweeter. Josie was clearly feeling guilty and down after losing Brian and thinking that her siblings abandoned her and it definitely took time to get over those feelings but having Jed around definitely helped her get there much faster. As for Jed, I was so happy to see that everything started to work out for him. He clearly sacrificed so much for his family and it was beautiful to see how his life is coming together. His reality also helped him to see clearly to allow him to start to help others in a similar situation to his own overcome their challenges and succeed.

Melissa Foster makes it hard to pick a favorite because with each new book she keeps getting better. The 5th installment of her The Whiskey’s series, Mad About Moon, exceeds the other books in the series. Josie and her young son have been through so much heartache and they are pulled up from their lowest point and pulled back into a happy life by Jed. Josie and her son lose their home after her husband dies. After running out of options Josie makes the courageous choice of making contact with her siblings. Through them she is brought back into contact with Jed, a blast from her past who volunteers to watch out for Josie. Jed never forgot about the teenager that he fell in love with and reconnecting with the grown up Josie and learning about and falling for her son Hail makes for a wonderful second chance romance. The road to love is never smooth but they end up rising to conquer every experience life throws their way ending in their happily ever after. This book is a page turner that you wont put down until you finish it.

Mad About Moon by Melissa Foster is book 5 in The Whiskeys Series. This is the story of Josie Beckley and Jed Moon. To fully understand Josie and her story it does help to have read the previous book I thought but if you wish you can make this a standalone if that is what you wish to do. Jed hasn't been an angel but he is now getting his life together and is a new recruit for Dark Knights motorcycle club but there has always something missing. Joise grew up with abusive parents and through time lost connection with her siblings. Josie did go on to have a son and marry but her husband his died leaving her homeless other than a women's shelter. When her siblings try to reconnect with her she is slow to take that offer but for her son and to move forward she goes forward to reconnect. This brings Jed back into her life. Once upon a time they had a connection but were pulled apart. When Jed spots Joise he knows that he needs her. I am a big fan of Ms. Foster's writing so this was a must read for me. Loved it!!
