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
likea 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?
Thank you to Lisa for letting me be part of this tour. I have been a fan of Melissa’s work for a very long time now and I look forward to every new book. Luckily she is a writing machine so I never have to wait too long for the next story.
We met Sarah in the last Whiskey story, Driving Whiskey Wild. Sarah, her children and her brother were in a car accident and Bullet Whiskey helped to rescue them. At the hospital, she meets Bones for the first time. The chemistry was there between these two from that very moment but it took Sarah a lot longer to learn she could trust Dr Whiskey.
Sarah has had a hard life. She has been through things that no one should have to go through. She has come out the other side braver and stronger than she probably ever thought possible. I am in awe of her.
Dr Whiskey is one hell of a man. By day he is a highly respected oncologist. Bones knows exactly how to treat his patients and not just with medication but also by giving them the time they need to be heard. By night he’s a member of the Dark Knights protecting the community and doing whatever needs be.
This story was one that really pulled on the heartstrings. I spent a lot of time fighting back the tears and failing miserably.
Melissa managed to draw me into her world and I really didn’t want to leave. The Whiskey family, like all the families Melissa creates, is one full of love, laughter and happiness. While they may not have had the perfect life they are happy now and that is all that matters. I hear the next book is about Sarah’s sister Josie and, while it’s probably going to break me, I can’t wait to hear her story.
“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.”
