Regular visitors to visitors to the blog knows how much I love Melissa Foster’s books. Each time I pick up her books, I expect a sexy and emotional read and she never disappoints. So when I picked up The Trouble with Whiskey I was prepared for a well-written friends to lovers, small town romance. The book met all my expectations.

They were a lot of steamy moments between the pages, balanced by humorous banter, heartbreaking moments and a heartwarming romance. I fell head over heels for the characters featured in this installment. From the main to the secondary characters. I am so looking forward to their stories.

My favourite thing about Foster’s stories is her characters. Dare and Billie captured my heart from the first page. Here we have two people who were inseparable from childhood until tragedy tore them apart. Love, however, proved more powerful and soon they found their way back to each other. Their romance will have you tearing up, but leaves you smiling in the end. I enjoyed how they came together. We see how much they are perfect for each other.

The Trouble with Whiskey is sizzling and compelling friends to lovers romance. It is the type of romance which will have readers believing in a love that not only survives time but also has the power to heal and change lives. – Simply Fantastic.

Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa]

He’s a natural-born protector, a Dark Knights biker, and a hell of a rancher. What happens when he falls for a woman who has no idea who she really is?

When Sullivan Tate escaped from a cult, leaving behind the only life she’d ever known, she thought she’d already endured the most difficult things she’d ever have to deal with. She knew she needed to figure out who she was, but she hadn’t expected to fall for overprotective and sexy-as-hell Callahan “Cowboy” Whiskey along the way. How can she give her heart to a man who has always known exactly who he is, when she’s only just begun figuring that out about herself?
