After escaping abusive parents and, later, an abusive relationship, Sarah Beckley has spent a lifetime watching snakes shed their skin. With two small children to care for and another on the way, she’s finally found a home in Peaceful Harbor with the brother she hasn’t seen in more than a decade. She’s still searching for her sister, but life is good. If only she could stop thinking about the sinfully sexy doctor/biker who has taken to her children like a loving uncle-and to her like a hungry man.
Trust doesn’t come easily for Sarah, but Bones Whiskey is patient and protective, amazing with her children, and he looks at her like she is the only woman he could ever want-and more. With two little ones underfoot, Sarah expects him to move on quickly, yet with every tender kiss and each trying moment with the children, Bones surprises her. But will the fiercely loyal biker stick around when Sarah’s worst secret is revealed, or will he shed his skin, too?
I knew from the moment I read River of Love more than two years ago that I was going to fall in love with Bones Whiskey. Of course, I was intrigued by the whole Whiskey family at that time…and I still am. These books are my favorite Melissa Foster books, and that’s saying a lot.
Bones and Sarah have such a unique chemistry. Yes, there is heat and sizzle, but there is also a feeling of coming home. If that doesn’t make sense to you, read this story and it will. Not only does Bones make Sarah feel safe and protected just by being in the same room as her, but Sarah also settles Bones. She makes him feel complete. That line was cheesy, I know. But it’s so true.
It’s not only Sarah that gives Bones these feelings, it’s her whole package. Kids (and kid to be) and all. As a mom myself, his acceptance and patience with her kids melted me into a pile of goo. I felt as though Bones was falling in love with the kids at the same time he was falling in love with Sarah. Not as though he fell for Sarah and realized he had to get on board with the kids to make things work, as is often the case in this type of story.
Of course, the whole Whiskey family is amazing in this story as they are in all of the stories. We also get to know Sarah’s brother and see glimpses of her sister, both of whom should have extremely interesting stories in the future. Sarah and her siblings did not have an easy go of things and they really bring another facet to this series that is important to tell while also being heartbreaking.
The only thing wrong with this series is having to wait for the next book.
