Publisher's Summary

A new, emotionally riveting, sexy standalone romance by New York Times best-selling author Melissa Foster. Watch mysteriously sexy Bear Whiskey claw his way to his happily-ever-after with sassy, rebellious Crystal Moon.

Eight months is a long damn time to have the hots for a woman who keeps a guy at arm's length. But Crystal Moon is no ordinary woman. She's a sinfully sexy, sass-mouthed badass, and the subject of Bear Whiskey's midnight fantasies. She's also one of his closest friends.

Just when Crystal thinks she has her life under control, scorching-hot, possessive, aggressive, and fiercely loyal Bear pushes all her sexual buttons, relentless in his pursuit to make her his.

The more Bear pushes, the hotter their passion burns, unearthing memories for Crystal that are best kept buried. But there's no stopping the collision of her past and present, catapulting the two lovers down an emotional and sexually charged road that has them questioning all they thought they knew.

3.5 STARS.. SACCHARIN SWEET, SEXY & DRAMA-LITE

This is an introduction into the Whiskey clan where all the men are part-time bikers and they are a tight loving and loyal family group who would defend each other to the hilt.. or die trying. I haven't listened to it but the 33 yr old sexy hero Bear is first introduced in the book Tru Blue where he first meets sassy 30 yr old Crystal and he's forever hooked. This book starts off 8 months later and Bear has been steadily trying to woo and wear Crystal down - but he doesn't yet realize that she has erected some very high walls to protect her and a bitter secret that has, understandably, changed her. She puts on a hardass front which hides her sensitive heart but very slowly Bear's caring, supportive, attentive, loyal and very tempting self allows Crystal to start opening up, to start trusting, to start feeling and to finally let her walls crumble.

Bear does this by one touch, one conversation, one look and one thoughtful step at a time and this saintly sexy hero deserves an award for his patience, his unwavering understanding and his devotion which truly was remarkable. Crystal took a long time before she'd finally let Bear touch her and, once she slowly allowed her bases to be touched, sexy times followed. Although this is very much a relationship driven story, strong family values and demands are also present.. as well as a broken family who still hold on to secrets.

I'll be honest, it took me a little while to warm to this storyline because it robbed me of the h/h's first meeting and their first feelings.. but I slowly got over it and, for the most part, I enjoyed it. BUT it was sweet enough to give you cavities and it dragged a bit because there was simply no drama.. no angst.. no heated words.. and no misunderstandings. As the chapters slowly bled into each other I thought ok this is all very touching but where's the rocky road.. the rollercoaster.. the bad guy..? no, then what about an argument.. a hiccup.. or even a swear word? - but alas none of the above. It had plenty of heart and heat which I loved and some emotional baggage too which was all good but, for me, it was missing a little bit of drama. This is standalone but I think that I personally would have preferred to listen to it after Tru Blue because of the h/h's first meeting - and because some of the other characters were first introduced in that book. Dual POV's and the narrator did a good job.

Worth a credit? Well that depends on what you're looking for.. I got it in the sale and enjoyed it - but I just didn't love it. However, I did love long-suffering Bear who went above and beyond any previous hero to make his lady happy.. and the lucky woman was very very happy in the end.

What a great book!

I really enjoyed this well written story. This was the second book by this author that I have read, and both were engaging enough that I look forward to many more. I stumbled upon the first of this series, True Blue by chance and truly decided to give it a shot because it also had the audio option. I am so glad I did! I can not wait for the rest of this Whiskey clan to get their stories told. The narrator really brings this character to life. Good job to both author and narrator!

WHISKEY PLEASE!!


I think I deserve a shot of whiskey for finishing this one!

I've been wanting to listen to Melissa Foster for some time now, and finally took a chance, but I have to be honest.... between the narration, and the story, I almost return this audio. Luckily, I made it to chapter six where the plot finally started getting interesting. It a was sweet story, and I really liked Bear's character; however, there really wasn't much that was exciting, interesting or engaging. I actually zoned out a few times. There was a back story on the heroine, and she had to live with the aftermath, but it wasn't delivered in away that gave it any intensity. This story may be perfect for someone who doesn't like a lot of angst or steamy romance, but for me, I like my stories to make me feel all types of emotion whether their happy, sad or angry.... I just didn't feel anything with this one. I gave the story three stars because I didn't dislike it.

Paul Woodson has a deep rich voice which made it a little hard for me to distinguish between the characters and the emotions. I tried adjusting the speed up and down, and finally settled for 1.25x the speed. It took a couple of hours, but I finally got used to his voice, and narration style.

For Melissa Foster's fans, this may be worth a credit, but I wouldn't recommend using a credit.... sale maybe.

Truly Sweet & Flirty

A sweet and flirty romance between two creative and genuinely nice people. This is marketed as a stand alone book but it incorporates characters from a previous book. I actually liked it more because I prefer series. These characters -family and friends- are a dynamic cast, and create a warm background for a beautiful love story.

I review for the Guilty Indulgence Review Site.

Audiobook is truly, madly awesome!

Melissa Foster is a master of character development. She describes her characters in such a way as you feel their hurts and joys throughout her stories. Bear Whiskey and Chrystal Moon are no different. I fell in love with Bear and his tenacious pursuit of Chrystal. Their banter with each other draws you in to this beautiful relationship. We know something happened to Chrystal in her past and as she reveals this to Bear you have empathy for both of them. I am amazed with every Melissa Foster book I have read but this is one of the BEST. The narration by Paul Woodson is spot on. You can actually feel the emotion of the characters through his reading of this beautiful story.

Truly, Madly, Love this book!

I am a biker chick and I do love a strong  tatooed biker man like Bear.  He is very protective of family and those he loves.  He sticks up for those that get pushed aside and fights for whats right. 

Bear has been after Crystal for 8 months.  He texts her 1 word constantly "Bear".  He says he does not want her to forget him.  His persistence finally pays off when Crystal agrees to go out with him and walls come down.  Bear may be a big bad biker but he has a soft side and Crystal knows how to get him to show his soft side.

When I was listening to this I could really hear the emotions in the story. Paul Woodson did a great job narrating and making the story come to life. He has a great voice that sounds just like a tough biker with a soft side that you know all the Whiskey's have.

If you like bikers and Sons of Anarchy you will love Truly Madly Whiskey.  🐻

I need a Bear in my life


Audiobook Review…I have to start this with Holy Cow, Paul Woodson is amazing. He has the Whiskey voice and portrays Bear perfectly. Paul makes Bear sweet, understanding, loving, sexy, alpha and so very protective of those who are important to him. Paul Woodson takes Melissa Foster’s story and brings it to life. The characters, all of them, are voiced with emotions and reactions that pulled me right into the story.

eBook Review…Bearded, tattooed, biker Bear is not my style, usually. Bear in Truly, Madly, Whiskey is entirely my style. This is a good reminder to not judge a person by their looks because looks can be deceiving. Bear is a tough, alpha male but he has the absolute biggest heart EVER! When it is decided that you are important to him there is nothing you can do to stop him from taking care of you, loving you, and protecting you.

Melissa Foster takes her readers on a rollercoaster of emotions with Bear and Crystal. Crystal can deny her feelings all she wants but there is no doubt to anyone else that these two belong together and nothing will keep them apart. Crystal has a ton of issues to work through but Bear has no fear that nothing that she is dealing with can turn him off of her. Bear has a few things happening in his life also. He has to decide what his future will hold and how he will get to where he wants to be in his career.

There are so many other amazing characters that I am anxious to know more about. Bones, Bullet, and Dixie are all siblings of Bear that I am sure will have their own stories to tell. I am excited for this set of characters to continue.

Paul brings Bear to life in a grand way. . .

Let's just keep this one out in the open. I very much enjoyed this one when I read it. I fell a little bit more in love with Paul's narration skills. . . .

I wanted to know/hear Bear's story. I wanted to know more about him and where he would go with love. And then there was Crystal. Seeing then together and wondering if it was truly something there or just an illusion written in to misled. The banter between Crystal and Bear was my favorite. Their interactions just felt real. Audio allowed for me to visualize the characters, the play, the setting a bit clearer then reading did.

There were all the things that allowed me to fall in love from the book now done with narration that was really good. Paul's voice allowed for you to feel things in the various scenes that intensified the experience of this listen. The chemistry was there. Bear was the tatted, sexy, muscular male that was just wanting to be wrapped up with that one special woman, even if he really didn’t think so. Crystal well she was a woman on a mission to rise above what she was born to and raise around. There was a lot between then and a lot behind them. Coming to terms with things was what was needed. Life decisions were needed to be made. Watching as they come to this realization and doing it together was beautiful.

I highly recommend reading/listening to Tru Blue first. Fall in love slowly over the course of a few book with both the characters and the narrator.

I truly love this series.



I truly love this series. Foster breaks through the stereotype of what a hero should be and takes on who they are. The Whiskeys seem to be the anti heroes, but their hearts won't let them not lend a hand to a person that needs it. Crystal and Bear are broken people. Neither knows where their attraction is headed, but when their emotions are tested refuse to give up the fight. Through the words of Foster, narration of Woods on and the depth of the characters, the fierce spirit of a champion takes shape. Truly, Madly, Whiskey proves a heartbreaker can be a hero in disguise. It roots for the underdog and I love that most of all.

It's getting hot in here......

I don't know if I can put into words how much this audiobook had an impact on me but I will definitely try.

The this audiobook was the best I have ever listened to, not just by this author but any author.

I finished this audiobook in one sitting, I literally could not stop listening and it wasn't just the story or the characters but it was also the incredible words that had me crying, laughing, scowling and then crying again. The emotions that were put into this audiobook were amazing.

Crystal has a horrific past and struggles to move past it which is why she is reluctant to start a relationship with Bear and when you read why you will completely understand and I can 100% say that I truly felt for her.

Bear is so patient, loving and when he finds out why she has waited so long to return his feelings when he knew she felt the same he completely understands. Bear literally lives up to his name in the sense that he will protect those he loves to the ends of the earth but underneath he is just a big teddy bear.

I have never listened to an audiobook that has literally had me wondering what emotion was coming from one part to the next and for me that truly shows the ability of an exceptional writer.

Definitely my favourite audiobook by this author and also my favourite romance audiobook ever!!

Bear rocks

I love this audio book so much. Paul narrates it beautifully and its definitely how I imagined Bear's voice. Melissa Foster is such an amazing writer and to hear it brought so amazingly to life is wonderful. Definitely recommend to anyone.
