Originally Melissa Foster listed the Whiskey books as standalones. And by all means, they can be read as standalone books. But they’re finally being categorized as part of a series on Goodreads and I’m glad for that. I wouldn’t want anyone who liked one of these books to miss out on other not realizing there are more stories about this family.
Before I get into the meat and potatoes of this story, I have to say I love this cover. Although it’s not exactly how Bullet is described, the covers never really truly reflect the exact characters…more like the essence of the characters. This cover accomplishes that. It’s also refreshing to see a hero on a cover that isn’t waxed smooth. That’s not real life, especially when you’re dealing with characters in their 30’s.
Bullet and Finlay are perfect together. It was refreshing that, although things weren’t exactly smooth sailing, they never doubted their connection. Bullet was in need of an ear to listen to him that wouldn’t judge or take things personally. Finlay was the perfect person for that. Since Bullets demons are from a past she was not a part of there are no hard feelings that he didn’t tell her what was going on with him during his military career. His family, on the other hand, would be supportive but hurt that he didn’t open up to them sooner. Finlay has one of those personalities that made it easy for Bullet to feel safe with her. But he also made her feel safe. Something she didn’t even realize she was missing in her life.
As someone who doesn’t dislike dogs but is quite afraid of them, the scene where Finlay meets Bullet’s dog is extremely sweet. I love the way the Whiskey family is all in with anyone they consider family. And they know each other better than they even realize.
I love this community and always get impatient for the next book every time I finish one. This author just can’t write fast enough for me.
