I enjoyed this book, even if it wasn't my fave of this series. The Whiskey world is a really well created world by Melissa Foster, and it draws you right in, and makes you feel these characters.
Crystal has some demons from her past that we learn about, and once she opens up to Bear, things are much easier for her. Bear is the ultimate teddy bear. What a softie. I would love me one of my own. He's honest and respectable and an all around great guy. As with all the Whiskey heroes in this series.
I did feel that for part of the book not much was really happening, but I guess that can also go hand in hand with the issues they're both dealing with and not being able to rush them.
I loved our glimpses of the other family members and friends, and I can't wait to read more of this series, particularly now that I am nearly caught up.
Normally, I love reading Ms. Foster's books and a story containing the friends to lovers trope, but I was seriously thinking about giving up on this one, because I found myself frustrated with the characters in the beginning. Yet, in saying that, I decided to put the book down for a bit and come back to it and once Crystal admitted everything about her past to Bear, I found myself flipping the pages determined to discover what action the hero would take to avenge what happened to her.
At the start with the main characters, I found Bear a little too possessive and exasperating with his attempts to win Crystal over. Why couldn't he be a little bit more patient with her, instead of pushing her into making certain she didn't forget who he was? However, Bear had his good qualities too and did redeem himself in my eyes with his protectiveness of Crystal; his affection for the secondary characters in his family and his best friend's siblings; and the fact that he finally decided enough was enough when it came to all that he does for his family and how he wanted to finally pursue what he really wants to do.
While Crystal, I couldn't help but empathize with her due to all that she's been through and I could understand why she couldn't commit to anything more than friendship with Bear until she was absolutely ready. However, I did get a tad frustrated with her too, because Bear was willing to give up control for her when it came to any physical intimacy between them, yet she continued to run scared. Also, I liked that she finally did what was right for her when it came to her mother. She didn't need such toxicity in her life when she had a wonderful guy in Bear and a brother that was finally willing to turn his life around and side with her.
Overall, Ms. Foster has penned a really good read in this book, encompassing a delightful array of secondary characters that entertained me just as much as the main ones; a sizzling romance that illustrated love can conquer any obstacle; and an ending that had me smiling, because Crystal finally faced her past and did what was right. Yet, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up perfectly, as Bear was determined to make Crystal his forever, even if it meant hijacking someone else's special day. I would recommend Truly, Madly, Whiskey by Melissa Foster, if you enjoy the friends to lovers trope or books by authors Kelly Jamieson, Carly Phillips or Daisy Prescott.
I simply adored "Bear" from the minute I met him, he just had a way about him that made you fall in love with him. The way he followed Crystal around you knew he had it bad! Crystal was hooked on Bear too, but it took her a lot longer to admit it to herself. With a horrible life before "Peaceful Harbour" ( a beautiful name for a town), it was always in the back of her mind whether she could have a life that allowed her to love. I so wanted to shout at her at times “yes you can and Bear’s waiting for you”, but you will have to read it to see if they finally get the HEA you crave.
I can't wait to read more from the other characters in the book especially Bullet and Bones (Bear's brothers), they have so much banter it will certainly be a hoot!

Here we go again with another fabulous Whiskey story and it doesn't take long before you are falling in love with everything that is Crystal and Bear, from the beautiful chemistry between them to the very protective and understanding nature of Bear especially after he learned of Crystal's past... it all made sence.
You feel incredibly connected to each character, they get right under your skin and into your heart, even early on with Jed. We had only just met him, when he and Crystal had made that first visit to their mother... you could tell there was more to him, I liked him instantly.
Certain issues and situations are incorporated into the storyline and not only are they dealt with extremely well, but with great understanding too.
As the storyline continues so does the concern about what happened to Crystal, it never really goes away and we certainly know how Bear feels about it and you can't help wondering if or when something comes back to haunt them.
I almost felt as if I had been in therapy but that is Melissa Foster for you... attention to detail is always excellent and by the end of a story l always feel like I've learnt something new. It's those subtle messages that feature throughout.
Truly, Madly, Whiskey is written so beautifully you feel as if you are there with the love of the Whiskey family and those fabulous phrases with certain young characters that just melt your heart honestly it's just to perfect for words.
The build up to the end is so special, not only did we have Tru and Gemma's wedding but Crystal and Bear too and with that terrible incident dealt with and Jed on his way to a better life... it couldn't have been more perfect.!
Looking forward to more Whiskey's!!
Thank you Melissa Foster.
First off, I love the title of this book. As an Alan Rickman fan, it reminded me of his film Truly, Madly, Deeply. And I truly, madly, deeply loved this book. Yes, Bear is a biker with a beard and tattoos (which I don’t like) but like mountain man Steve/Grizz, I fell for his wonderful heart. You can’t not love the guy.
This was an emotional rollercoaster of a read. We met Bear Whiskey in River of Love, and then again in Tru Blue, where his fascination with Crystal became apparent. For all his flirting – and her denial – there is a definite ‘something’ there, which she tries to deny. But how long can she keep her big, cuddly Bear at bay?
Crystal has a heap of problems to overcome, caused by some anxiety in her past, that no-one knows about. And even though she keeps pushing Bear away, he constantly comes back for more. And Bear also has some issues regarding his future - and choices made in the past - that will affect his family. So there is plenty of angst to work through on both sides, but with Bear’s family, and their mutual friends Gemma and Tru, along with the cute Kennedy and Lincoln, this book will fill your heart with joy.
I’m now wondering about Bones and Bullet, not to mention Dixie. Plus we get to meet up with Jace Stone again, and are introduced to Maddox Silver.
Melissa continues to amaze me with her fabulous writing. This is another brilliant book, with future heroes to wonder about.
When we first met Bear & Crystal in Tru Blue, I knew then that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on their story, and Melissa didn’t disappoint with it either. Bear is a little rough around the edges but anything from scary – in fact he is actually more like a teddy bear, a quality that goes against the typical tough biker facade. He has waited 8 long months to be with Crystal, and try as she might she cant rebuff him.
Crystal is fighting her own demons and despite her tough biker chick exterior we discover it is all a front after events in her past made her reinvent herself into this hard-as woman. Bear find out her past and does everything in his power to show her that he is not after a one time thing with her and that he is looking for the real deal – all he wants a chance to prove that to her. We see Crystal break down her walls, in a story that is filled with so much sexual tension as well as being an emotional read for Crystal.
I hope we see more of the Whiskey family – especially Dixie I would love to read her story!
That will change now.
I like the style of writing and the way that the characters draw you in!
First their is Bear Whiskey, strong, caring, sweet and hot all rolled into one!
He's fiercely loyal and family is he's priority, putting them before he's own needs most of the time.
Then there is Crystal, a girl who has overcome a lot in her lifetime, but remains strong, loving and loyal, with some barriers that remain to protect herself!
When I started reading this story I was drawn in from the beginning!
A love story worth reading x
These characters appear in Tru Blue, another brilliant love story by Melissa and their story follows on from this novel.
I am not going to give any spoilers for the book as I don't want to ruin anyone's enjoyment of this as it is a book that you can't put down and spend many hours thinking you need to read just one more chapter!
If you like stories that make your heart flutter then this is for you!
