Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would certainly recommend this book - it's a heartwarming tale that is filled with ups and downs and really good characters.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Having read other works by this author, I come to expect emotional spots throughout the story and this one did not disappoint. But in addition to emotional scenes, she often throws out these one liners that usually make me swoon or make me cry or make me simply feel. While there were many throughout, I can still hear Bullet telling Finlay "You don't have to be a motorcycle girl, just be my girl". Be still my heart.

Any additional comments?

DRIVING WHISKEY WILD by Melissa Foster. This review is for the audiobook version of this story. Having read the previous books in the Whiskey series, I was very excited for Bullet and Finlay's story. (Note- this can be listened to as a standalone). Ms. Foster's story often evoke quite the range of emotions out of me and this one was no different. Bullet is uber-sexy, rough and tough and gruff all the way but has the biggest heart of almost any Hero I've ever met. Finlay is sweet as pie and, if two people could be more opposite, it's these two. Finlay, however, at times was just a tad too sweet for me and came across a little naive. Despite that, she complemented Bullet perfectly. Their love story is one that is sweet and endearing. It represents many of the ups and downs couples face as they journey their path together. I was smiling and laughing, swooning and catching my breath, and then found myself yelling at the characters too. Ms. Foster does an amazing job of portraying the emotions and feelings of her characters and her phrasing and way with words often makes me go "Sigh - that is just soooo romantic!" The audio version of the tale was well done, although I had my hesitations when learning it was a male narrator. Often, I find males distracting when they try to pull off a female's voice. Mr. Paul Woodson did an acceptable job, however. It did take me a chapter or two to get used to him speaking as Finlay and the other females, but once I got into the story, it no longer became an issue for me. I found I could follow and recognize each character as he spoke. Listening to a book is a bit different then reading it and I found DRIVING WHISKEY WILD to be a wonderful listening experience. (received an ARC of the audiobook for an honest review)
