📖 Novel of the Week: Driving Whiskey Wild by Melissa Foster

Driving Whiskey Wild (A Sexy Standalone Romance) by [Foster, Melissa]

A captivating new sexy standalone romance by New York Times bestselling 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.

My Review
Brandon "Bullet" Whiskey has been living his civilian life for a while now, but still he's hunted by the remorse and nightmares of what he had suffered while on tour, when he was in the army...That's why he feels the need to protect his family and his beloved hometown, Peaceful Harbor. 
Finlay Wilson moved back from Boston to stay with her sister and to finally realize her dream: having her own catering company, and she's on the right track to have it come true!
The two previously met at a common friends wedding and Finlay's first impression of Bullet wasn't, let's say, positive...but now they are "forced" to spend time together, as Finlay is in charge of helping with the renewal work that Dixie, Bullet's sister, wants to have for the family bar.
Finlay surely isn't a damsel in distress and will manage to keep up with Bullet's flirty, yet sometimes disrespectful behaviours...Is just when she finds out that Bullet is way more kind and selfless that he'd like to show, that she can't help but to fall in love with him, right at the same time as he falls for her...
The best part of this novel is the beginning, where you get to know the protagonists and one of the aspects I particularly loved was the siblings bond that Bullet and his brother Bones share, it was moving to see how the two rely on each other, while teasing and joking.
The strongest point (and weakest at the same time) of the entire story is that there's no 'great' plot twist or event that everybody would expect while reaching the ending...
Strong because it gives to the story a 'reality' vibe, it makes people empathize with little life situations that don't necessarily have to be astonishing. 
Weak because there actually is an unexpected event, but you can spot it at the very beginning, so it looses the surprise factor.
The overall story is fast reading, engaging and I really (really!) liked it. Another point in its favor is the fact that it can be read as a stand-alone as well as part of the series. 

I'll be continue reading Melissa Foster's books, I'm specially excited about the new "Wicked Whiskey Love" about my favourite Whiskey Brother,Wayne "Bones" Whiskey!
