This story was so good! I loved how Coco comes back home after running away from a bad experience with young love and finds that you can go home, but can you deal with your family? Seth was 'it' for Coco, but when she finally builds up her courage, he treats her like a little sister. Humiliated, she moves on and tries to erase the whole thing. This story is sweet, combined with even parts, sexy, sassy, and funny. There are such hilarious moments interspersed throughout the story and I found myself laughing out loud during them. Coco's family is terrific and add so much to the story. Really enjoyed how Coco's family is there for her, even when she doesn't want them to be! Great story and the narrator is a good choice.

Would you listen to Driving Whiskey Wild again? Why?

I would love to listen to this story again. The characters pull you into the story and make you feel as if you are a part of the family! It holds your interest throughout and is very entertaining.

What other book might you compare Driving Whiskey Wild to and why?

I believe this is a good fit in the Whiskey series and each one, although standalones, give you a glimpse of each of the members of the family.

Which scene was your favorite?

I can't reveal too much, because it would be a spoiler, but how both Bullet and Finlay worked through their separate issues and came through them.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would have loved to have listened to it all in one sitting, but unfortunately, I had to work!
