“Despite external conflicts, the romance shines.”
~ Under the Covers
TRULY, MADLY, WHISKEY claims to be a standalone and while I do think the events work well on their own, Foster always likes to mention other characters from her other books. It’s almost like a promotional tactic to get you to read her other books. So that being said, you will encounter some references from TRU BLUE, one of her other standalone titles.
I would say in terms of style this one follows the same tone as TRU BLUE. It’s definitely more grittier and darker, exploring characters that aren’t as polished or well-off as some of Foster’s other characters. The heroine, Crystal, wasn’t one of my favorites of this author’s stories. I found that I didn’t connect with her as much as thought I would. Thankfully, Bear was there to save the book.
I love all of Foster’s heroes. Although they are all sexy, they are all very different from each other. Bear has always had the hots for Crystal but she likes to keep him at arm’s length so perhaps that’s why I didn’t fall for Crystal as quickly. She keeps people away from her too much. It took be a while to warm up to the story, but by the end, I was really convinced with the romance. I like that Foster takes her time and really focuses on the romance of the story. Despite external conflicts, the romance shines.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
