Buckle up for a wild ride as Dixie Whiskey finds forever love in TAMING MY WHISKEY, a funny, sexy, and emotionally riveting standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. The perfect love story for those who enjoy fiercely loyal and insanely sexy alpha heroes, smart, sassy heroines, strong family bonds, bikers, babies, and more!
In USA Today Bestseller TAMING MY WHISKEY...Being the princess of the Dark Knights motorcycle club doesn’t come with a white knight or a fairy-tale castle, and that’s okay, because Dixie Whiskey has never needed a man to slay her dragons or make her whole. Even so, after watching each of her brothers fall in love, she’d sure like a shot at her own happily ever after. But with the Dark Knights watching over her and the only man she’s ever wanted out of reach, she’s not holding her breath.
As the launch of Silver-Stone Cycles’ biggest line approaches, Jace Stone is left needing a favor from the one woman who holds the power to take him to his knees. He knows when it comes to sinfully gorgeous and sharp-tongued Dixie Whiskey, he must stay on his toes and keep his walls firmly in place. But Jace needs her for his business—and Jace Stone always gets what he wants.
When the tall, gruff, and darkly handsome biker presents an opportunity that any other woman might see as the chance of a lifetime, Dixie turns him down flat. But Jace is determined, and he pulls out all the stops—sending Dixie’s overprotective brothers up in arms. Rebellious Dixie takes a stand—going after the freedom, and the man, she’s always wanted. One scorching kiss leads to an undeniable connection, but Jace isn't looking to be tied down, and Dixie refuses to play second fiddle. Can two untamable hearts find forever love in each other’s arms?

I have been waiting for Dixie’s story from the moment Ms. Foster introduced to the Whiskey family. I admired Dixie’s fiery spirit and tough girl persona and I could not wait for her to get her happily ever after. However, for a woman like Dixie no ordinary man would do. She would need a man who could stand up to her overprotective brothers, one who could tame her, but allow her to remain strong and independent. Jace Stone proved to be that man.
Dixie has been crushing on Jace from she was 18 years of age. Jace, however kept his distance, because he knew Dixie deserved a man who could give her forever.  Ten years later, Dixie’s feelings for Jace has grown, and Jace continued to keep his distance. However, when Jace recognized that Dixie would be perfect as the face of his new line for female bikers, his plans to keep his distance was no longer an option.
I loved these two together. They were both strong characters and perfect for each other. The chemistry between them sizzled, causing temperatures to spike. Their time spent together was a mixture of tender and passionate moments.
It took Jace awhile to realize how he felt about Dixie, but it was a joy to watch when he did. He would learn how difficult it is to ignore love when it comes knocking. As a businessperson he was as smart as a whip, but when it came to expressing his feelings to Dixie he clueless.
It was fun reconnecting with characters from the previous books and getting a peek into their lives since the release of their stories. It is unnecessary to read the series in order, but I highly recommend reading the other couples’ story.
Melissa Foster outdid herself with this story. She had me laughing and crying alongside the characters. There was never a dull moment.  Taming My Whiskey delivered all I expected.
 
Conclusion/Recommendation
This was a great addition to the series and I am looking forward to the next book.  Fans of romance, which features a strong female lead and a hot alpha male, would enjoy this latest offering from Melissa Foster.
I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own
