In WICKED WHISKEY LOVE...After escaping abusive parents and, later, an abusive relationship, Sarah Beckley has spent a lifetime watching snakes shed their skin. With two small children to care for and another on the way, she's finally found a home in Peaceful Harbor with the brother she hasn't seen in more than a decade. She's still searching for her sister, but life is good. If only she could stop thinking about the sinfully sexy doctor/biker who has taken to her children like a loving uncle-and to her like a hungry man.
Trust doesn't come easily for Sarah, but Bones Whiskey is patient and protective, amazing with her children, and he looks at her like she is the only woman he could ever want-and more. With two little ones underfoot, Sarah expects him to move on quickly, yet with every tender kiss and each trying moment with the children, Bones surprises her. But will the fiercely loyal biker stick around when Sarah's worst secret is revealed, or will he shed his skin, too?

I have much, much love for the men in the Whiskey family. Not a one of them are bad eggs, some may just be a little less tamed so watching them falling in love one by one has been a joy. I’m oh so happy to have Bones’ story. Early on we get this statement “I think you can tell more about a man by the way he treats other people’s children.” and it sets the tone to just the kind of man Dr. Wayne “Bones” Whiskey is. There’s just something about the Whiskey men and children that warms the soul and makes my heart pitter patter. This story focuses on new to Peaceful Harbor Sarah Beckly, her children and their growing connection with Bones. It’s absolutely a feel good story about family and a slow-burn friends to lovers tale.
Sarah, her children Bradley and Lila and her brother Scott and pulled into the Whiskey family fold when they are rescued from a burning car. Over the course of the story we learn about their upbringing in a family prone to abuse an their subsequent escape. But the heart of the story is in the rebuilding of Sarah and her lives, and how the Whiskey family influences them, especially how Bones becomes their champion and how they create a wonderful family. Challenged by her past, Sarah puts up roadblocks but Bones is such a AMAZING man and accepts her regardless, really he never see’s a problem, and if that isn’t the foundation of true love (unconditional) then what is?
This a swoony read filled with the voices of the “Whiskey” children that will warm your soul. The story of acceptance and strength, and the bonds of family. Yet another wonderful contribution by Melissa Foster to her Whiskey series that captured my heart.

“From the moment I first saw you, I had to see you again, and in the months since, that desire has intensified. I think about you and your children all the time.” He looked down at her belly, and then he gazed into her eyes and said, “And that little miracle, too.”
The breath rushed from her lungs. “You’re doing it again. I can’t breathe when you look at me like that.”
“Then why fight it? You’ve spent two months getting to know me. You know I’m not going to hurt you.”
“I can’t know that,” she said vehemently. “Good people do bad things. You said so yourself.”
His heart ached for what she must have been through to cause so much distrust. “That’s true. But after thirty-plus years I can honestly say I’ve never done a single bad thing toward a woman. It’s not in my makeup. I’ve done things I shouldn’t have, like most people, but hurting you will never be one of those things. If you let me into your world, into your life, I promise you that I’ll put my own life on the line before I let anyone hurt you or your children.”
She choked out a breath.
“Let me prove it to you, Sarah. Let me take you on a real date. Get to know me better and decide for yourself.”
“I can’t go on a date. The kids—”
“I have a whole family who will gladly watch them. Scott said he would, too.”
Her jaw dropped open. “You asked Scott?”
“He’s your brother. In my world that means he looks out for you and deserves a heads-up.” He spread his hand over her upper back, his fingers brushing the ends of her hair, and felt her heart beating rapidly.
The song ended, but they continued dancing. When the next song started he said, “Everyone is in our corner, darlin’. One date. One night to see if whatever this is between us is as real for you as it is for me.”
“How do you know it’s anything for me?”
Did she really think she hid her emotions that well? “You said you can’t breathe when I look at you.”
“Ohmygosh,” she whispered. “I’m the lamest woman on earth.”
“What does that make me? Because each and every time you look at me, I feel like I’m finally breathing for the very first time.”
