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.
He wore the skin of a killer, and bore the heart of a lover…
There’s nothing Truman Gritt won’t do to protect his family–Including spending years in jail for a crime he didn’t commit. When he’s finally released, the life he knew is turned upside down by his mother’s overdose, and Truman steps in to raise the children she’s left behind. Truman’s hard, he’s secretive, and he’s trying to save a brother who’s even more broken than he is. He’s never needed help in his life, and when beautiful Gemma Wright tries to step in, he’s less than accepting. But Gemma has a way of slithering into people’s lives and eventually she pierces through his ironclad heart. When Truman’s dark past collides with his future, his loyalties will be tested, and he’ll be faced with his toughest decision yet.

Having read the tale of the first Whiskey brother, I was intrigued to read of another. This is by no means a series, although the book is about the same family. It is one of my favorite standalones that Melissa Foster has written.
Bullet Whiskey – if that isn’t a name that says stay away from, I don’t know what is – runs the family bar. He’s in the “family” motorcycle club. He doesn’t have time for people outside his family. He is really annoyed when the rest of the family tells his sister, Dixie, it’s okay to hire someone to help with renovations to the bar.
Dixie hires Finlay Wilson. Finlay is the direct opposite of Bullet. She always shows up in sweet dresses. She is a light in a dark place. And Bullet is attracted to her, to her light.
The two of them go out on a date eventually. The problem is Bullet shows up hours late and covered in blood. He stopped at an accident on his way and managed to save a family from a burning car. While Finlay might have initially been annoyed he didn’t call her, she cleans him up. I don’t think Bullet, other than when he was a small boy, has ever had anyone take care of him before.
The two continue to date and find they have a tie that will bind them together forever. It was a twist I would have never guessed.
You will need to pick up your own copy of Driving Whiskey Wild to find out what ties Bullet and Finlay together. It will be a fantastic read and well worth your time. I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
