Discover the magic of New York Times bestseller Melissa Foster's writing, and see why millions of readers have fallen in love with her books.

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.

"You can feel Bear's magnetism through the page. How can Crystal (or readers) resist?" — New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent

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.

I loved being witness to Crystal overcoming her fears and finding reconcilliation with her past. And of course falling love with a man who loved her unconditonally. Great read and I'm looking forward to reading more about the Whiskey family.

Oh, Melissa Foster, you’ve done it again!! You’ve sucked me in and sent me on a roller coaster of emotions. If you’ve read Foster’s other work, you’ll notice right away that this book is darker in style. The characters are rougher around the edges and the story is more somber. Bear and Crystal are first introduced in Tru Blue. (Note: You don’t have to read Tru Blue first unless you want Tru and Gemma’s backstory.) Bear is instantly attracted to Crystal, but Crystal wants nothing to do with Bear…or does she? Crystal is one of those characters that you like one minute and who can irritate you the next. She’s had a rough life and she doesn’t like getting close to people as she feels they only leave her or let her down in the end. This caused me to feel like she was playing with Bear’s emotions, wanting him one minute and pushing him away the next. Bear, who has his fair share of pain in his life, must have the patience of Job. He wants Crystal the moment he first sets eyes on her, and is preparing to wait and do whatever it takes to have her. Although he’s known as a badass biker, he shows his softer side with Crystal. While I liked the more sensitive side of him, there are places in the story where I wish he’d shown more of his alpha side. All in all this was an overall great read. While I had a few issues with the characters, the story line was awesome and the romance was HOT! I’m looking forward to read the next one to find out more about the rest of the Whiskey family.

•Confidence and Determination Another amazing story by Melissa Foster! Each of her series pulls me in as soon as I open the book, although they're part of a series each story can be read as standalone and can be read in any order. Within the series each story has its own couple, but they all interconnect, which means you just have to read them ALL!! This is Bear and Crystal story, and oh boy what a steamy and emotional story it is. I cried, but laughed even more. The love throughout this story is amazing, who can resist a kitten, a toddler and the cutest little girl ever. Every couple deserve their own HEA. To find our how much willingness, commitment, willpower, love, confidence and determination there is within this story you'll have top read TRULY, MADLY, WHISKEY. I loved it and although I haven't read River of Love or Tru Blue yet, I WILL BE!! I also cannot wait for Bullet, Bones & Dixie's stories, Melissa is awesome. I have not been disappointed by anything of hers I've read. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book via Tasty Book Tours for an honest blog tour review. Due to sexual situations, this book is recommended for readers 16 and older. Favorite Passages ~ ~ He had the reputation of a snake, and he wasn’t going anywhere near Bear’s sister’s grass. ~ “They say orchids are symbols of love and affection,” he said softly. “And the harder they are to find, the more love and affection they hold. When you put all these magnificent beauties together, you get the most unique flower on earth.” ~ “You give me strength, Bear, the way you believe in me. Thank you, and thank you for being here for me.” ~ Love, loyalty, and respect for all runs as thick as blood through their veins. A blessing and a curse. Want More Whiskeys? Each of the Whiskey siblings (Bullet, Bones, and Dixie) will be featured in their own fun, sexy novels. Sign up for Melissa’s newsletter to be notified of the next Whiskey release. While all may be enjoyed as part of their larger series, every book is written as a stand-alone novel and you can jump in any time without missing a beat. The Whiskeys were first introduced in RIVER OF LOVE and we learned more about them in TRU BLUE.

Wow! What a great story about relationships and a girl, Crystal Moon who had been raped in college and as a defense mechanism acted like the tough girl with plenty of one night stands. Enter Bear Whiskey, hot, hot, hot! Who absolutely is crazy over Crystal and stops going out with other women. He only wants her and can’t figure out why she wants nothing to do with him. This is a beautiful written story! I love the Whiskey Series. The men are all swoon worry! I read the book but also listened to the audible and loved the narration by Paul Woodson! He did a fantastic job!

Bear is persistent and determined!  Even when Crystal repeatedly tells him she doesn't want to be with him, (even though she really does!) he doesn't give up on her!  He is also so gentle with her, and exactly what she needs.  Crystal is hiding a past that no one knows about and its eating her up inside.  She had a horrible childhood, and things just got worse from there.  Meeting Gemma was the best thing that ever happened to her.  Gemma saved Crystal, and she didn't even know it.   Bear had an amazing childhood, with a great family.  But he has a very hard time telling them no, putting himself first, pursuing his own dreams instead of theirs.   This book was just as good as Tru Blue, and, again, family plays a big part in this story.  Blood family, as well as that you make, stands beside you no matter what, holding you up when you need it, making you strong.  Another amazing story!

Camaraderie, honor, respect, family and love are the combined soul of this beautiful, emotional and passionate story. The family values fly off the pages and take hold of your heart. I easily became engaged into Crystal and Bear's life in Truly, Madly, Whiskey and of all those around them, the whole biker community along with the Dark Knights was a great back story too. They say to never judge a person on first appearances and that is so true with those Whiskey brothers and the biking community as a whole. Burrowed deep within Crystal are the memories that her normal secure childhood had changed to uncertainty, grief, and emotional upheaval, she pushes on with life but she has built a wall around herself so nothing would hurt her again even though her heart might tell her differently. The way Bear continued to push on with the tiny hope he carried of a relationship with Crystal, unwilling to give up until she succumbed, definitely pulled on my heart. Was Bear the one to break her wall down? I enjoyed watching their relationship unfold, laughing throughout the book at the fun banter between them. Again little Kennedy stole my heart, with her cute innocent remarks. One character I am so looking forward to reading more on is Dixie, I'm hoping that she has her own book although I feel sorry for any love interest she may have with those protective biker brothers around. And OMG the ending!! Can't say anymore, you will just have to read it to find out.

I have been hoping that Bear would get a story. His role in a previous book made me want to know more about him and where he would go with love. I was so curious about the connection with Crystal and if it was something there or just an illusion written in to misled. The banter between Crystal and Bear was my favorite. Their interactions just felt real. Allowing for me to easily visualize the play. The chemistry was there and it was intensified by their exchanges with each other. This was a fun read that had elements of sexual charges. 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. She like so many other has family issues. She had life happen to her early and often. She was a woman that took control of her life and was determined to direct it to where she wanted it to go. There was much to capture you and send you further in to the read. It was more pleasant if you had a chance to read Tru Blue and get more of a feel for the characters that were going to be the highlight of this current read. Reading about them previously and then watching them grow more in their connection was emotional at points. 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. There are always those that don’t like a read. I for one got what I was expecting. Bear gives his all and Crystal receives it. I recommend this read to anyone looking for a new emotional charged read with excellent chemistry and banter.

Bear Whiskey may look like a bad boy biker, but he's really a teddy bear with a heart of gold. He's had eyes for no one but Crystal for almost one year, but he never gave up on her, even when it seemed like she would never give in. She likes Bear, but is afraid of what he makes her feel after events from her past have left her weary. But Bear knows how to push all her buttons, and works hard to bring down her walls. There are plenty of laughs, tears and sexy times along they way, and I have to give Bear credit for letting Crystal set the pace. I was intrigued with the Whiskey siblings in other books by Melissa Foster, and I'm really glad they will be getting their own stories. 4.5 stars I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.

Truly, Madly, Whiskey is the newest release from one of my favorite authors: Melissa Foster. Romance novels are everywhere and most of them leave me thinking, 'eh, I should have taken a bath instead.' But not Melissa Foster! Her novels have a way of grabbing me and making me wish I was 15 years younger and single again. In Truly, Madly, Whiskey we meet a young woman in the midst of reinventing herself yet again. Life seems to have a thing for knocking her on her butt, but she doesn't let that keep her down long. Crystal Moon is a trooper. She has had a fairly rough life since her dad past away during her childhood. An out of touch mom, a brother in and out of trouble, and then college--oh my, what an experience! Bear Whiskey is not a man to be messed with. Big burley biker dude is the perfect description for him and Crystal isn't sure she wants anything to do with him. But, he is persistent.

Passion. Hope. Determination. Strength. Melissa Foster has written a book that will draw on your heart strings while at the same time will twists your emotions all over the place. I was drawn into this book from the very start and could not put it down. In the end you will have your heart strings tugged on and will have tears in your eyes pulled along with laughter and smiles. The story is full of romance and passion. The characters are easy to like and connect with. The chemistry between Bear and Crystal is steamy and explosive. You can’t help but fall in love with the characters in the book. The love between the Whiskey family with the teasing and fun added to the story. This was another book from Melissa Foster that was hard to put down. Melissa is a very talented author that tells fabulous stories that captivate you and keep your attention from the first page to the last page. Definitely an author that you will want to keep on your go-to list. If you enjoy reading a steamy book with lots of sex, then you will enjoy this book. A truly fascinating inspiring read.

Truly Madly Whiskey In this extremely hot, stand alone book, Melissa Foster sets the pages on fire with the attraction between Crystal and Bear. I don’t know how she does it, but Melissa Foster makes you want to crawl inside the pages of her books to get even closer to her characters! Crystal is a damaged, closed off woman who helps her best friend Gemma run a party boutique while staying far away from the opposite sex. Bear Whiskey is a mechanic, bartender, and motorcycle club member who has fell head over heels for the smart mouthed Crystal. After 8 months of chasing, Bear finally catches Crystal. Not understanding why she had been dodging him, she finally tells him the horror of her life through college: her parents loosing their home, her father’s subsequent death from a drunk driver, her sexual assault in college and her alcoholic mother. After all she had been through, all Bear wants to do is protect her. So, giving her Harley, a small kitten, her walls start to crumble. This smoking hot story will make you want to cuddle closer to your significant other when you real Crystal and Bear’s tale of how they fell in love. Melissa Foster has a way with words and keep you wanting more. I can’t wait to read her next story!

As many of you know I love Melissa Foster and all her books! So I couldn't wait to read Truly, Madly, Whiskey. Melissa is one of those authors that everything she writes is amazing. So I knew I was going to love this book too. Bear and Crystal are the cutest couple. They honestly complete each other and need each other to grow. They are each other's missing piece of the puzzle. They have the love and attraction and connection that I've always dreamed of having with someone. Crystal had a difficult life growing up! A neglectful, alcoholic, mentally abusive mother was one thing but being raped and no support afterwards is just heartbreaking. It's surprising she became the strong and amazing woman she did. She is so strong and definitely someone to look up to. I was so glad to see her overcome all these hard things and be a woman that could stand up for herself and open her heart and break down the walls. She had such a great support system! Bear has a awesome family even if they are a little presumptuous in thinking they know what everyone needs and wants. Bear has such a huge amazingly strong and caring heart but he needs to learn to say no. His family is strong and help so many. I need a bear! What's not to love? A sexy biker with a big heart is a complete package. The way he takes care of crystal is so swooning. I love it! This book was amazing and I definitely recommend it! Also check out all the other books in the series. They can all be read alone and no cliffhangers and all happy ever afters. Get it today!

Love is patience I am truly and madly in-love with Bear. My goodness this man has the longest patience over the entire men universe. Love is patience is what his motto is. It is all worth in the end. He is very funny, persistence and panty melting drop dead handsome. I cannot believed Crystal makes him suffer that long. This is one roller coaster book of emotions to read. It is very emotional. It is one of the best book I read this month. I think I need to reread it again.
