Can true love strike twice in one lifetime?
Josie Beckley refuses to believe there is a limit on happiness. A decade after she escaped her abusive parents and lost touch with her siblings, the death of her husband leaves her and her son homeless. But Josie has never been one to wallow in sadness, and when she takes a chance on reconnecting with her siblings, a sinfully handsome bright light from her past shows up and offers to help her find a way out of the darkness.
Most people wouldn’t see Jed Moon as someone to look up to. He’s been in and out of jail and has lived a less-than-stellar lifestyle. But years ago one woman saw through his nonsense, and he’s never forgotten her. Now she’s back in his life, and as a prospect for the Dark Knights motorcycle club, Jed promises to keep an eye on the sassy, sexy single mother who has never stopped lighting his fantasies on fire.
Jed and Josie’s combustible connection is stronger than ever. Having Josie and her son in his life brings out all of Jed’s protective instincts-and visions of a future he never imagined having. But when a shocking revelation knocks the insatiable lovers to their knees, it forces them to make choices that could change their lives forever.
This story made me swoon. I swear, Jed Moon and Josie are the sweetest couple ever! They had an instant connection years ago when they first met that came zinging back at them as soon as they met up again in this book. They go together like peas and carrots.
Both Jed and Josie had a rough time of things growing up. For Jed (who is Crystal’s brother who got her story told in Truly, Madly, Whiskey) his early childhood was great and went downhill when he was a preteen. For Josie (who is Sarah’s sister who got her story told in Wicked Whiskey Love), her home life was terrible until she took found a great person to help her out when she was a young teen. Both grew away from, and even lost track of, their siblings in that time. Now everyone is finding their way back to one another and finding what family and home really means.
I appreciate the care Melissa Foster took when telling Josie’s story. Her feelings of guilt about moving on, although her husband has been gone for a couple of years now. Her worry over what it all means for her son, Hail. From losing his dad at a young age to meeting aunts, uncles and cousins he didn’t know to getting attached to Moon, Hail has been through a lot in his short life so far. Luckily, being considered part of the Whiskey family is the best place to be when your world feels out of control. Josie never opened up her world once she settled in with Brian, his grandmother, and then had Brian’s son. Being a part of the Dark Knight’s world is a whole different ball game for her and it scares her. But she finds her niche.
There are a lot of interesting new characters brought to light in this story. Some we’ve met in passing before, but some are just being introduced. I think I enjoy this series the most out of all the offshoots and other series this author has. Seeing Dixie Whiskey get her HEA is going to be fun. To be honest, I have no clue which direction the author will go with that one. There’s more than one fella looking to sneak past her brothers for a date with that strong and sassy woman. I cannot wait!
