Publisher's Summary

Buckle up for a wild ride as Dixie Whiskey finds forever love in TAMING MY WHISKEY, a funny, sexy, and emotionally riveting standalone romance by New York Times best-selling author Melissa Foster. The perfect love story for those who enjoy fiercely loyal and insanely sexy alpha heroes, smart, sassy heroines, strong family bonds, bikers, babies, and more! 

In TAMING MY WHISKEY....
Being the princess of the Dark Knights motorcycle club doesn’t come with a white knight or a fairy-tale castle, and that’s okay, because Dixie Whiskey has never needed a man to slay her dragons or make her whole. Even so, after watching each of her brothers fall in love, she’d sure like a shot at her own happily ever after. But with the Dark Knights watching over her and the only man she’s ever wanted out of reach, she’s not holding her breath.

As the launch of Silver-Stone Cycles’ biggest line approaches, Jace Stone is left needing a favor from the one woman who holds the power to take him to his knees. He knows when it comes to sinfully gorgeous and sharp-tongued Dixie Whiskey, he must stay on his toes and keep his walls firmly in place. But Jace needs her for his business - and Jace Stone always gets what he wants.

When the tall, gruff, and darkly handsome biker presents an opportunity that any other woman might see as the chance of a lifetime, Dixie turns him down flat. But Jace is determined, and he pulls out all the stops - sending Dixie’s overprotective brothers up in arms. Rebellious Dixie takes a stand - going after the freedom, and the man, she’s always wanted. One scorching kiss leads to an undeniable connection, but Jace isn't looking to be tied down, and Dixie refuses to play second fiddle. Can two untamable hearts find forever love in each other’s arms?

oh, HOLY SH*T....

I have been waiting on this book for months (maybe even longer, maybe since the moment I met Dixie Whiskey), and I was just not ready for this. This book is EVERYTHING ;)

Dixie is still her tough, no-nonsense self, and Jace is just the man to go toe-to-toe with her. The two of them have chemistry that is off the charts, and sparks fly at every corner. This book is just scorching! The narrators bring this chemistry to life so well, and it makes you just want to melt!

But like everything with the Whiskeys, it's about family and love and taking care of those around you, and this book is no exception. This book is full of the things you have come to expect from this family, plus a whole lot more.

Melissa Foster really outdid herself when it came to this book. There are some stories you just want to curl up in and never leave and this is one of them. Five stars is not enough....

great hea

lots of smiles. lots of warm fuzzies. amazing side characters. excellent writing. excellent narration. spoilers to follow!! at 18 the h set her sights on a 27?ish year old. he wasn't having any of that. ten years or so later he owns a motorcycle club and is introducing a clothes line to go with it. he wants her to be the "face of his company" and clothes line. she, and her brothers, don't like the idea. he convinces her, well kind of, mostly her brothers said she couldn't. the rest falls well into place. listen. you'll enjoy it. I've listened 2 1x2 X so far

Dixie Whiskey amazingly strong determined . . .

Narration by a duo was most certainly the way to go her. The complement and contrast was wonderful to carry the story forward. I loved Dixie and she came across as a very strong character by both narrators.

I loved Dixie. I too loved sexy Jace. It just something about the name Jace that makes me just swoon. This Jace. For this read was all that and then some. Dixie Whiskey gets her man. Strong, sexy, alpha. Sweet, sassy, sexy (herself) Dixie finds her forever in one Jace Stone.

Dixie Whiskey gets her man. Strong, sexy, alpha. Sweet, sassy, sexy (herself) Dixie finds her forever in one Jace Stone. A decade in the making. Dixie finally had a chance with the man of her heart. She finds that this romance not as easy as it seems to look for others. It takes some hard work, some tears, some heartache, and maybe even a punch or two. With protective brothers and a brotherhood behind her she finds that getting the man of her heart will not be so easy.

I found this Whiskey romance to be real emotional and just a bit different from the others. Dixie showed a more feminine side and that just really rubbed her raw. She showed that she was more than just bark. She had a bite that a few people experienced. There was so much more to Dixie Whiskey. Jace was most certainly her match. It just took him a little bit longer to figure that all out for himself.

Melissa Foster intrigued me with this friends-to-lovers story! I really enjoyed the strong family ties, support and camaraderie of the friends involved. I loved how both Dixie and Jace had assertive personalities , strong will and recognized when to concede a point! Aiden Snow and Devra Woodward both did a good job narrating and bringing emotional clarity to the storyline. Overall I really enjoyed this audiobook 😍🤩😍🤩

My favourite to date

I have read and enjoyed all the previous books in this series. Having said that, Taming My Whiskey can be read as a stand alone, although honestly if you have the time I would read them all. I think you will find this a highly addictive series to read, I know I did. This was an emotional and hot story that captivated me from the first to the last chapter. I love this series, the characters are so well developed and Melissa Foster’s writing so descriptive that I feel as though I am apart of the Whiskey family and Peaceful Harbour.

I have been waiting for Dixie Whiskey to get her story; I knew that it would be worth waiting for and I was right. I also knew that the man who would win Dixie’s heart would need to be someone truly special and that is most certainly Jace Stone

As I have come to expect from a Melissa Foster story, this was extremely well written and an absolute pleasure to read. Jace Stone is a total alpha male who ticked all the boxes for me and Dixie is perfect for him. I love her feisty spirit, her unbridled passion for life and her love of family.

Although Jace is determined not to settle down he cannot deny his feelings for Dixie whilst she is equally determined that she will not come second to anyone or anything.
The passion and love between Dixie and Jace is intense, the air crackles when they are together but can two total Alpha’s come together as equals or will they tear each other apart?

Devra Woodward is a new narrator to me but I found her to be easy to listen too. Aiden Snow was as always a joy to listen too.

Steamy Read

This is the first book in The Whiskeys series that I've read and I really enjoyed it. I will read the others, they're standalones so can be read in any order.

The Whiskeys are a close knit family and the brothers are quite protective of their only sister, Dixie. Dixie is strong and independent but she has a sweet vulnerability that I really enjoyed. Jace is hard working and dedicated with no time, or desire, for a relationship. The chemistry between those two was fantastic. They we perfect for each other.

The narration by Devra Woodward was Aiden Snow fantastic. Their voices worked well with each other and fit the characters. They brought the story and characters to life.

Taming My Whiskey

This is the sixth book in The Whiskeys series by this author. It can be read as a complete standalone. Each book in this series is about a different couple but with interconnected characters. You do not need to read the other books to enjoy this one. I’ll be honest, this is probably my favorite series of this author. The characters, their issues and circumstances, seem more real. I’ve also been looking forward to getting Dixie’s story from the very beginning. She’s the only girl with three overly protective brothers and is surrounded by a whole bunch of other “brothers” and “uncles”. Even in the other books it was always a struggle for her to date. You knew the right one had to be someone special, and Jace Stone is definitely someone special. He’s a big, tough, “not looking for commitment”, just having fun and focusing on my business, alpha male. Even though he’s known Dixie for a while, the switch was finally flipped from “must stay away” to “must have”. There are so many things to love about Jace. He is sexy, sweet, protective, and caring. The chemistry between the two is hot.

I have to be honest, Dixie missed the mark a little for me. While she is sassy and strong in most areas, I think I expected more. There’s a fine line between being vulnerable and being whiny, and she fell slightly on the whiny side for me. Most may not see her this way, and my feelings may be because I had such high expectations for her in all areas. The other thing that missed the mark for me is that the rest of this series is about people with real jobs, real lives, real circumstances, but in this one we are back to the multi-millionaire alpha. I know that may be seem like a ridiculous thing to be picky about, but there are so many books out there where the money is the sign of success and is a focal point of the book. The rest of the series is more about the people and I loved that change of pace.

The narrators for this book were really good. Their voices were the perfect fit for these characters. In general, this was a good book. It was a good addition to this series. There are also hint of what I hope to be future books in this series. If you like this author and this series then definitely check it out.

HOT! HOT! HOT!

I absolutely loved Jace and Dixie’s story! Very emotional and steamy! I want Jace to growl at me 😉.

Dixie only has eyes for one man. I doesn’t matter because her biker brothers manage to scare away any man that gets too close. Until Jace....he holds his ground with Bullet. He knows what he wants and he’s determined to get her.

Listening to these two try their hands at a relationship is everything. It is uncharted territory for both of them. It’s messy, hot, swoon worthy, and a long time in the making. They both deserve it, but can Jace handle the sacrifices?

A Precious Stone

Dixie has had a crush on Jace for years and she finally gets the opportunity to spend time with him when she is chosen to be the face of Leather & Lace for his company. Dixie keeps flirting until he gives in. He lets her know upfront that he doesn’t want a relationship and she tells him she is ok with that when she knows deep down that isn’t true. Jace was hurt by a woman in the past and that’s the reason he doesn’t get close to anyone. He cares about Dixie but just can’t forget what he went through. I love strong female characters and Dixie is definitely one. She cared about Jace but remained true to herself. Jace was a little. rough around the edges but had a good heart. I liked that he shared his story with Dixie so she would know why he was the way he was.
I really like the friends to lovers trope and this one is very well written and I loved the family dynamic. This book is part of a series and can be read as a standalone.
I loved the narration for this book. Aiden Snow and Devra Woodward had the perfect voices for Jace and Dixie.

Loved this story and the narration so much!

Devra Woodward and Aiden Snow narrate this story beautifully. I enjoyed both of the ways they brought the characters to life.

I love Dixie, she is soooooooo feisty and just, I wanna be her when I grow up! I loved this story and the whole set up behind it particularly the way that Dixie and Jace danced around each other so much. I would happily spend a lot more time in this world as I feel their story is probably not over...

Beautiful

Stone is attempting to find the perfect woman to be the face of his company. He doesn't want just any model. He wants an authentic biker chick. He has a specific woman in mind, but doesn't think she'll take on the project. When the one who does accept, breaks her leg, he discovers that his original lady has done a similar job in the past. He decides to try to talk her into it. I really enjoyed this story. Had I known that it was a book 6, I'd of tracked down and bought the first 5 before listening to it. I was already too deep into the book before I discovered it, though. It's probably for the best. My book allowance is non existent these days. Considering how this story played out, it seems like the series is a stand alone series that can be read out of order. It's just that I'm the type that reads series in order regardless of if they are stand alone or not. The characters were pretty amazing. It focuses the attention on Stone and Whiskey. For obvious reasons as they are the main part and point of the story. I just kind of wish that some of the background characters had a bit more of a highlighting role in the story. Sometimes I got a little confused with who was who and where they belonged. Not too often though. Thank goodness. I really enjoyed the narrators. I am not sure if I've ever listened to anything from Devra Woodward before. I am willing to listen to other audiobooks by her though. I have listened to Aiden Snow before. He's a very delightful listen. I plan to listen to more of his in the future. He's got this really soothing voice. I really enjoyed this story despite not being able to read the first 5 books that were before it. It was hilarious and glorious. I wound up giving it a 4 out of 5 star rating. I'd of given it full 5 stars, but I felt like some of the major points of the story were overlooked and rushed over. It didn't ruin the story, but it did leave some questions unanswered.

Young love never died

I liked this story and I loved the big family and all the secondary characters, my only regret is never reading the other books in this series so I had more background info before reading. When that’s said, it can easily be read as a standalone.
Dixie and Jace’s story is a sweet one about young love that never leaves your heart.
I loved the dynamic between them and the chemistry was hot and clear from the beginning.
Characters descriptions is very good, I feel like I know them after a while.
No unnecessary descriptions of surroundings and good dialogues
Steamy hot love scenes that’s not “to much”

Narrators:
Clear pronunciation and read with feelings. Very enjoyable listening to.

5 stars overall.

Great story, with excellent narration.

I have read and listened to Melissa Foster's work in the past but this is the first book that I have picked up with the Whiskey family and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute. I really want to add every other book to my basket and get listening. Dixie and Jace (I love that name!) are a wonderful, full of zing, steam up the kindle couple whose story had me captivated.
Both Devra Woodward and Aiden Snow's narration was sublimely good. With clear characterisation and mood expression, they were a complete treat for the ears.

Taming my Whiskey

I have been dying for Dixie to get her love story & what a story Melissa has given her. Dixie is a fierce, confident woman who can stand up for herself, but she also has a softer side, and at times vulnerable side and I loved how we got to see that side of her in this story. I wasn’t sure who Melissa had in store for Dixie, but I knew it had to be someone man enough to take her on as well as prove to her brothers he was the real deal. Enter Jace Stone, rugged, tough and definitely man enough for Dixie. ⠀

Jace designs motorbikes, and has a new line coming out along with a clothing line for woman and after being let down by a model he turns his sights on Dixie, who if he had realised had modelled in the past would have made her his first choice. Dixie puts him off for a long as she can but eventually decided to do it, following her brother ganging up on her at the charity auction.⠀

From here we really see Jace and Dixie come together in more ways than one, their story is hot and their chemistry is on fire. But Jace is not perfect and his back an forth approach to his feeling gave me whiplash and left Dixie feeling broken-hearted, and my heart broke right along with her, but he fixes the wrongs and shows that no one is perfect but they can be perfect together.⠀

The Narration:⠀
Devra Woodward and Aiden Snow were just perfect at voicing Dixie and Jace. You know how you get an idea of how someone would sound like when reading a book? Well these two nailed the characters perfectly! The audio was crisp and clear and flowed seamlessly between the two voice actors.⠀

Dixie and Jase!

Although Dixie loves her three over-protective brothers dearly they have a way of intimidating anyone who shows an interest in her. She knows that any man she falls in love with is going to have his hands full convincing her brothers that he is worthy but it isn’t really a factor as the man she has always wanted hasn’t shown any interest in her.

Jase creates custom motorcycle and he has always been attracted to her but he is only interested in flings when it comes to women and she is a forever kind of girl. He wants her to be the model to showcase his bikes but convincing her has become a bit of a challenge.

These two are magical to watch. Dixie knows what she wants and what she wants is Jase and as much as he was determined to keep their relationship strictly physical she had a way of getting under his skin and straight into her heart.

This is a sweet and sexy about family and love that is filled with hot chemistry, witty banter and so much emotion. I received a complimentary copy of the audiobook and thought the narrators were the perfect choice for the characters. 🎧 Audiobook Obsession

I Loved It

Taming My Whiskey by Melissa Foster was an engaging page-turner that had me hooked from beginning to end. This was Dixie and Jace's story and I loved how perfect these two were for each other.With the back and forth banter between the characters, intense chemistry, and the hot, steamy scenes you cant help but fall in love with these characters and will be rooting for them throughout the story. This was an excellent read and I would highly recommend it to all lovers of contemporary romance.
The audible version of this novel was narrated by Devra Woodward and Aiden Snow. These two were perfect for this story and gave a fantastic performance. Their narration was clear and understandable and they brought the story to life. I absolutely loved listening to them narrate this novel.

Crazy Cajun Book Addicts

Melissa Foster has written another fabulous instalment of the Dark Knights at Peaceful Harbor Series.
This is Jace and Dixie's story and I was immediately hooked.
I listened to the audio addition that was narrated by Devra Woodward and Aiden Snow. They did a fantastic job with the narration and I found myself getting lost in their voices.

Dixie Whiskey is the only sister to the very protective Whiskey brothers but Dixie is strong willed and and can definitely take care of herself. When Jace Stone is in need of a model Dixie immediately turns him down but eventually he wares her down.
These two have an amazing chemistry and sparks are about to fly in this emotional rollercoaster of a story.

A fun sexy and emotional story not to be missed!!

skipped a lot of it

dragged myself through most of it and would have given up if hadn't paid. Maybe sign of maturity, but I found a lot of this silly and irritating. brothers behaved like teenagers, leads often annoying and followed trite/old school storyline that I am hoping readers are growing out of. even found the love scenes on boring side when technically should be hot, but think was also due to the narrators. not my cup of tea.
