Publisher's Summary

A captivating new sexy stand-alone romance by New York Times best-selling author Melissa Foster.

Special Forces veteran and Dark Knights Motorcycle Club member Bullet Whiskey lives to protect his family, their bar, and the residents of his small hometown. He's rough, unapologetic, and haunted by a secret, painful past. He's also a master at keeping people away, and when his sister hires gorgeous and sweet Finlay Wilson to help expand their biker bar, he knows just how to get rid of her.

After losing her boyfriend and her father, Finlay moves back to her hometown to be closer to the little family she has left. She needs her temporary job at Whiskey Bro's to get her catering business off the ground, and she's determined not to let the gruff, arrogant mountain of a man Bullet Whiskey scare her off.

Finlay is everything Bullet has never wanted. She's afraid of his dog, afraid of motorcycles, and sweet enough to give him cavities, but as she weaves her way into the hearts of everyone around him, he's powerless to resist her charms. Passion ignites, but trust doesn't come easily, and when their pasts collide, Bullet finds out the true meaning of protecting those he loves.

Really enjoyed the narrator he brought it to life

I read this book a few months ago when it was released as an eBook and really enjoyed it so when I was given the opportunity to get an advanced copy of the audiobook I jumped on it. Not only did I enjoy the narrator (Paul Woodson) but listening to the book come alive lead to me to taking my four star review and making it five! Being able to listen to the book added a new dimension to the story which I absolutely loved.

While Driving Whiskey Wild is the third book in The Whiskeys Series it can be read as a standalone which is exactly how I read it. Did I feel lost at all because I hadn't read the previous books? Not at all. This is one of the things I like most about Melissa Fosters books, you can read any of them in any order and never feel lost, but honestly her books are so enjoyable you'll want to read them all.

Bullet and Finlay have this opposites attract, bad boy / good girl, chemistry that was so hot I wondered if my kindle would melt. My heart broke for this tough, motorcycle club leather wearing, badass biker. He went through so much in his life always the protector of others even when it took the ultimate toll on him leaving him with a sever case of PTSD after being medically discharged from the military. Tinkerbell, Bullet's rottweiler, seemed to be the only thing that helped him with his flashbacks, well that was until Finlay came into his life.

I love this cute little chef, Finlay was dedicated to starting up her own catering business but I'm pretty sure she didn't expect the changes that would come to her life when she agrees to help Dixie with the expansion of Whiskeys Bro's. I enjoyed watching Finlay overcome some of her fears with the guidance of Bullet, this big strong man had a tender heart and an even more tender hand when it came to Finlay, something neither of them were use to.

This was a sweet and sexy read that had me tearing up a few times so you may want to keep tissues handy just in case.

sweet

I thought this was a sweet story of a family that takes care of each other and their town. I loved the chemistry between the main characters and loved seeing into Whiskey and all his layers. He was damaged but not broken. Great characters!

Narration was great- very nice to listen to and fine production.

Good book

This is another great read from Ms. Foster that I enjoyed from the start. Bullet and Finlay were well written characters that had issues that were relatable to the reader. I enjoyed watching each characters work through their issues as they found their HEA. I continue to like how the characters have a strong sense of family as the characters do in all of her books. The plot of their story moved along well and kept me interested in their story from the beginning. The narration by Mr. Woodson continues to be enjoyable as he brings the story to life enthusiastically. I would recommend this book to others.

My very favorite Melissa Foster book thus far!

This is by far my favorite Melissa Foster series and probably book thus far. First of all the hero, Bullet, is a war veteran with PTSD. My husband is the same, so I could really relate and sympathize with him. I absolutely loved the fact that he had a great big old dog named Tinkerbell that helped him with that PTSD. They couldn't sleep without each other! Bullet carries some heavy memories and guilt with him and sees himself as protector of those he cares about.
Finlay is just a super sweet character. She's afraid of many things, but steps out of her comfort zone to accept a date with Bullet. His tattoos frighten her, his dog frightens her, his motorcycle frightens her and a lot of times his attitude frightens her. On the other hand--he calls her Lollipop, sleeps with his dog and has a habit of saving people. How can she hold out against that? When their pasts merge together can they overcome the shared trauma and move past it for the HEA they each deserve?
This was a great story by Melissa Foster and a great narration by Paul Woodson!

New-to-me author

I really enjoyed Driving Whiskey Wild. This is the first book by Melissa Foster that I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. Foster does an amazing job writing relatable characters that you can't help but love. This was one of the few books that I've listened to with a male narrator. Usually, I'm a bit turned off by listening to a male narrate especially if the voice doesn't quite match the characters (especially the ladies!), but Paul Woodson did a great job! I was engaged throughout the story and I loved how he brought the main characters to life. If you're looking for a narrator with a great, deep voice look no further.

Overall, I would definitely listen to this audiobook again and I'm SO glad I found a new author to read/listen to.

Paul Woodson Brought Bullet to LIFE!!!

Driving Whiskey Wild was another great book by Melissa Foster! What made it even better was the narrator, Paul Woodson. He really brought the characters and the story to life!

Bullet was a fantastic character. He is everything a woman wants in a man…a bad boy with a good heart. Finlay’s description of him being an intimidating man was spot on. However, under that sexy, tough exterior is his best attribute…his heart! He doesn’t trust very easily and only gives his heart to a limited number of people, mostly his family. Finlay may change that. She is definitely not the type of girl he usually is attracted to. She is too sweet, and because of that underlying attraction, he is either rude or making crude sexual remarks about her. When he is forced to spend more time with her, he develops a fierce protectiveness and feelings he has never had for another woman.

Finlay is one of those quirky characters I can’t help but fall in love with. She is sweet and charming, but she also has a strength and determination most people aren’t expecting. Bullet is definitely not the type of guy she would ever date. His rudeness and sexual comments created a lot of complicated feelings within herself. One minute she wants to slap him across the face, and then, in the next moment, she wants to kiss him (and more). As she spends more time with him, she begins seeing a very different side of him, not the tough guy he portrays to others. These two have a sexual chemistry that is “off the charts hot.” It’s their deeper, emotional, and sweet relationship that really melted my heart.
As I wrote earlier, the narrator was AMAZING!!! I’m pretty particular about a narrator’s voice.

He or she can make or break an audio book for me. I am mostly a fan of dual narrators, one a male and one a female. But, Woodson blew me away! I’m a huge fan of Melissa Foster already, but I’m even a bigger fan now. Paul Woodson also has a new fan in me!

Amazing

Driving Whiskey Wild is the third book of The Whiskey's by Melissa Foster. I always thoroughly enjoy Melissa's work and this one is no different. It is a sweet romance border lining naughty bedroom. Bullet Whiskey is an intense alpha male who becomes mush around Finlay. Finlay is extremely sweet and wears everyone of her emotions on her face. She welcomes a whole new world when she starts falling for the Whiskey magic.

In this book you see the inner workings of the mind of someone suffering from PTSD and not wanting to let anyone in. You find the will to overcome the loss of a loved one. I adored the couple and can not wait to get my hands on Bone's and Sarah's story!

Great book to listen to!

Would you consider the audio edition of Driving Whiskey Wild to be better than the print version?

Driving Whiskey Wild is the third book in The Whiskey Family series. I read the first book, Tru Blue and really enjoyed it. I somehow skipped the second book, Truly Madly Whiskey so I'll have to remedy that. At any rate, this held up well as a stand alone. I didn't feel lost having missed the second book. Characters from both books do show up here and it was nice to catch up with them. This is Brandon (Bullet) and Finlay's story.The best part about this book was Bullet. I loved his character. It's always fun to read about a big alpha male with a heart of gold who also has a soft spot for kids and his dog. He has made it onto my book boyfriend list. Finlay, however, I had a harder time warming up to her. I didn't doubt she had a big heart and cared deeply for Bullet. However, it really grated on me every time she questioned his motorcycle club and its rules. That bothered me. If you are going to be involved with someone from a club like that, then you have to take it all on. They won't change just because you think they are archaic. I also didn't get how she grew up in the town and didn't know much about the club. They seemed to be a fairly prominent part of the town, so I was puzzled by her complete lack of knowledge of the good they do and how it all works. I enjoyed listening to the audible version of the book. The narrator did a great job!Anyway, this did end up being a sweet romance that I ultimately enjoyed. I do look forward to reading Bones's and Dixie's stories in the future.

3 1/2 stars

I listened to the audio book on this one. Paul Woodson, the narrator, has a deep sexy voice that I mostly enjoyed. I am pretty picky about narrators. They can make or break a book for me. I would say that Paul does a really good male voice but struggles more with female voices. I think the ideal situation would be for him to read the male parts and a female to read the female parts. That would make a really good combination. The problem I had was that all his females voices sounded the same and sometimes they sound...I don't know kinda childlike. But it wasn't enough for me not to enjoy the book.

As for the story itself, I haven't read the books prior to this one in the series. This book can stand alone though you do meet Bear and Crystal from book two. They are part of the Whiskey family and I liked them both. We don't meet Truman and Gemma from book one, though. I really liked the whole family aspect of this story. They own a bar together and they look out for each other. They are all part of each other's lives. That was nice.

If you're reading this for the motorcycle club aspect of it, I'd pass on this one. It's not a big part of the story. Yeah, it's mentioned and church comes up once but it's really not the focus of the story. Sure Bullet is the big tough motorcycle riding kinda guy. He has that strong desire to protect everyone he cares about. He's ex-military with some serious PSTD and that seems to define him more than the motorcycle club. If anything, I'd say this was a military kinda book.

Speaking of Bullet, I loved him. He's the kind of guy that takes care of those he loves and feels too much guilt when he can't protect people. He pulls people out of burning cars and tries to keep his family safe. He forgets to let others help him and he remembers every buddy or even just met guy who died in the military around him. I did really fall for him.

Finlay is nice. Bullet calls her lollipop and I liked that. She struggles to deal with the rough side of Bullet and has a fear of dogs and motorcycles. That makes for some problems as Bullet has a dog that helps him with his PSTD. She soon falls for Bullet's charms though and I did really like her.

There is a lot of heat in this story. If you enjoy many and detailed hotness scenes, this book has that in spades.

I wanted to like the story more than I did. You see, things felt forced in a few places. The characters acting just outside of their character. Even the climax was just a little bit off. Nothing bad, mind you, just off. Maybe it was that things were just too sweet. Too easily falling into place. While I enjoyed it, it just lacked the strength of books I really love. It's okay. It was nice to listen to one day as I did my cores but I won't be listening to it again. And I don't think I'll be reading books 1 and 2 or going on with the series. It was just okay. And let's be real. I have too many books I really want to read to spend time on just okay.

You can decide for yourself and others have felt differently but this one is just okay for me.

Perfect Narrator for this story!

Driving Whiskey Wild is my first audio book by Melissa Foster. It is also my first audio book with Paul Woodson narrating. He gave this story so much life and it couldn't have been more perfect.

Melissa Foster writes an MC book like no other I have read. I typically don't care for them but I figured I would give it a shot since she is one of my favorite authors. The Whiskeys are tough and run a biker club so I wasn't expecting to like them because it's just not my thing. However, they are also hard working, have a strong set of values, and stay true to themselves no matter what. You get the tough, hard hitting story that comes with an MC romance but you also get some of the sweet, tender romance that Melissa Foster is great at.

As far as Paul Woodson goes, his narration gave the characters so much. He set the tone for each character and I could really feel the emotions in his voice.
