Sasha Whiskey is done being the good girl. She’s ready to wrangle in the one man not looking to be caught and give him a taste of Whiskey. With any luck, one taste won’t be nearly enough. Come along for the steamy, emotional ride in this friends-to-lovers, forbidden romance.
Equine rehabilitation therapist Sasha Whiskey has everything she needs right there on Redemption Ranch—a job she’s passionate about, a loving family, and Ezra Moore, the sexy single father who went from trying to nail her as a belligerent teen to keeping his distance as a successful therapist and the person to whom she compares every other man. She’s done with comparisons. She wants the real thing. But going after what she wants means risking everything they’ve both worked so hard to achieve. If only dating co-workers weren’t forbidden.

A Taste of Whiskey was an awesome read. Ezra and Sasha were an adorable couple. Because of a no fraternization among employees rule, they both kept their feelings for each other under wraps. They spent time together as friends, but the more they were in each other’s company, the harder it became for them to deny what they felt. Eventually tension increased and like an active volcano it exploded, leading to several secret liaisons.


Ezra may not have been born a Whiskey, but he fits perfectly into the family. Ezra and Sasha’s interactions will have you smiling throughout the story. From the moment they met as teenagers, one could feel the chemistry building between them. All it took we was one kiss and things were never the same. However, the road leading to their happily ever after was paved with pain, disillusionment, disappointments, imperfect timing, fear, and insecurities. Despite the odds stacked against them, Ezra and Sasha fought for their happiness. Their willingness to sacrifice all they accomplished working on the ranch for their relationship reflected the authenticity of their feelings for each other. A that will have readers rooting for them.

While I loved Ezra and Sasha, the star of this instalment was Gus, Ezra’s son. An adorable little boy and a charmer in the making. His interactions with Sasha and the secondary characters will have readers smiling throughout the story.

It was fun returning to the Redemption Ranch, where family and friendship thrive. Once again, Foster gave her readers a story brimming with laughter, heat, and heart.
