I really enjoyed the Whiskey family when Melissa Foster first introduced them in River of Love.  I was so glad to get more of them in this book.  You by no means have to read any of the other books by this author to enjoy this story, but why wouldn’t you?  Plus, it looks like there will be more from the Whiskey family starting with Bear Whiskey in Wild Whiskey Nights.  I can’t wait!

Now that I have that gushing out of the way, let me get on with it.

Truman is a hero I fell in love with instantly.  He’s someone I can totally understand.  He always felt the need to protect those he loves and will stop at nothing to do so.  He is so sweet to the little brother and sister he didn’t even know he had; it will melt your heart.  (FYI, Truman and his siblings are all named after presidents and it is super cute.) 

The speed with which Truman and the heroine, Gemma, fall in love is off the charts.  There is nothing life that can bring people together faster than small children.  Of course, small children can also tear people apart pretty quickly too.  Luckily that wasn’t the case here.  Even with the speed of their relationship, it all somehow made sense and it really worked.

I love the way Tru and Gemma work together for the well-being of the kids and really think about how their past will shape the way they view the world.  In some ways, it can be seen as coddling.  Yet they don’t allow themselves to remain in a bubble.  They want to kids to acclimate to the real world even if that’s scary.  After Gemma’s initial time she needed to think things through, Gemma and Tru really stuck by each other and respected each other’s choices and decisions.

The author, once again, does a great job of making me care about all the characters even if they are not the main characters.  There are a lot of great stories simmering under the surface with this group.
