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.

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.

A Different Kind of MC Alpha

This was my first book by this author and so I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. What I got was a motorcycle club that was anything but stereotypical, a growly alpha with a heart of pure gold, and a love story that sort of snuck up on my feels and then gave them a good wallop. I loved Bullet and Finley’s sexy, angsty, and ultimately super sweet love story!

I love Paul Woodson's voice as a narrator

Paul Woodson has a voice that is perfect for the tough, biker of the Whiskey Family. He takes a story that I read and brings it back to life for me. I was able to hear the tones of the characters, feel the emotion of the story, and listen to an amazing story.

The Whiskey Family is tough, tattooed, and run a biker club. I love everything about them. Along with all of that they are true to themselves, have strong family values, and work hard for what they want. Driving Whiskey Wild is Bullet’s story. He is fighting so many demons. PTSD from what he saw and experienced in war is the cause of many of his issues. Bullet just needs the right woman to help him beat those demons.

I like that both Bullet and Finlay have experienced life. They have had rough times and still managed to come out on the otherside. They are not privileged, they have had to work to earn their way in the world. They both have reasons for not feeling like they could be loved again. Together Bullet and Finlay just make sense. They can understand each other, support each other, and love each other because they are alike in so many ways.

If you are familiar with Melissa Foster and are looking for a sweet, loving, tender book Driving Whiskey Wild is not it. This is a hardcore, in your face, tough book. There are many sweet, loving, and tender moments but there is also a lot of swearing and hard conversations being had.

Foster & Woodson have me hooked on The Whiskeys.

I received a free copy of this audiobook to listen to and review for Wicked Reads.

Driving Whiskey Wild is only my second Melissa Foster audiobook and I’m forced to admit that I’ve not read any of her books prior to this. When our blog was offered the opportunity to join the author’s audiobook review team, I borrowed another of her audiobooks via Audible’s Romance Package to get a feel for her writing. As there are three audiobook reviewers on our blog and I was the only one who’d not read her writing before, I wanted to make sure that I could pitch in in the event neither of the other ladies were available – both of whom love Foster’s books. Bear with me for just a little more background, I’m the individual who prepares and publishes the posts on our blog, which means that I get to read everyone’s reviews and because of that, I had actually added Driving Whiskey Wild to my ‘Want to Read’ shelf on Goodreads. Needless to say, when the first audiobook sent to us for review wound up being Driving Whiskey Wild, there was no pitching in for me, I was all over it and Foster and Woodson did not disappoint.

I’m a fan of MC romances, it doesn’t matter if it’s a one-percenter club or just a group of men who look for the camaraderie and sense of brotherhood a motorcycle club often provides, nor does it matter if it’s a dark romance, a romcom, an erotic romance, or a contemporary romance, if it’s well written, I can usually lose myself in an MC romance. In Driving Whiskey Wild, the Dark Knights Motorcycle Club is a brotherhood that supports its members and protects its community. Although nothing illegal occurs in the book, statements are made that suggest that if they were backed into a corner, the club would do what it had to in order to protect their own – especially Bullet Whiskey. Between his upbringing and his time in the service, Bullet has an overdeveloped need to protect others, especially those who matter to him. This sense of duty makes for a rather intense man on the outside, but the more we learn about Bullet, the more we realize that the man also has a sweet side, at least he does for Finlay. Well, when he can get his libido under control he does. I nearly choked on my coffee when the “Take you for a ride on the Bullet Train” line was uttered. As for Finlay, she’s not what one would envision for the rough-around-the-edges Bullet, and yet, she proves to be the perfect women for him, possessing a quiet, inner strength that serves her well when dealing with the prideful man. Witnessing the two conquer each other’s demons and tear down their walls made for quite a journey – one that made me laugh, bite my nails, swoon a bit, and anticipate the happily ever after ending Foster is known for. And Foster did not let me down.

As for the narration, I’m chagrined to admit that when I began listening to Driving Whiskey Wild, I wasn’t sure that I was going to enjoy Paul Woodson’s narration. You see, I had this idea in my mind of what Bullet Whiskey should sound like based on the guy on the book’s cover and at first, Woodson wasn’t meeting my expectation. But as I listened, I soon eschewed my skewed expectation and fell into Woodson’s performance. Not only did he become Bullet Whiskey, but he also became Finlay, as well as the huge cast of characters who are woven into the story – and there are a LOT of them. I thoroughly enjoyed Woodson’s narrative performance and look forward to listening to him in the future, which is likely to be sooner rather than later as I plan to back track and listen to the other two audiobooks in The Whiskeys series. Yep, Foster and Woodson have me hooked on The Whiskeys.

Smooth like whiskey, with lots of heat!

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!

Let Bullet Drive you Wild!!

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)

Not your average rom-com

Would you listen to Driving Whiskey Wild again? Why?

I would absolutely read this again. This was a sweet story that is easy to listen to while doing housework or running errands.

Which character – as performed by Paul Woodson – was your favorite?

Paul Woodson does a great job finding Bullet's voice from the first chapter.

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

I loved how Finlay just fit in with Bullet's family. It isn't a moment exactly, but just a general feeling of acceptance that makes me fall harder for Bullet and the whole Wild family.

Any additional comments?

I both read and listened to this book and I will say that Paul Woodson's narration only improved an already good story.

This is the first book in the whiskey series that I have read and I have instantly fallen in love with this family. Bullet is written as so much more than just a typical alpha stereotype and turns out to be a very complex and sensitive hero. Finlay (a name I absolutely loved BTW) fits in well with the other women in Bullet's world and her interactions with them alone make me want to go back and read the previous books in the series. I really enjoyed reading how Bullet wins over Finlay and they both are able to overcome their personal obstacles to find happiness. That sounds like the plot of pretty much ever romance but I assure you that Foster really writes these characters in an interesting way that makes this stand out from the pack.

I just LOVE this Whiskey Family!

Driving Whiskey Wild is a sweet romance, low on angst but not low on story. It has elements of MC romance, but not super gritty.

Bullet Whiskey is a gruff, alpha biker who is set in his ways and resists change. He has always been the protector in his family, a hero to them and his country but tries to cover up the PTSD that he suffers from since returning from his stint in the military.

Finlay is an absolute sweetheart a complete opposite to Bullet’s roughness. He even calls her ‘Lollipop’. But she is no shrinking violet and stands up for herself with her own sass and toughness.

I listened to this on audiobook with stellar narration by Paul Woodson. I’m quickly becoming a big fan of this narrator!

Driving Whiskey Wild is the third book in The Whiskey’s series but certainly can be read as a standalone. It is the first book in this series that I’ve read and I wasn’t lost at all. It just made me want to go back and read the first and second books. I’ve completely fallen in love with the entire Whiskey Family!
