“I guess that might attribute to Foster’s simplistic style, but I am always left feeling like everything wraps up too quickly or easily.”
~ Under the Covers

Melissa Foster returns with another installment in the Whiskey series. If you are unfamiliar with this series, I would say that this series is a bit more darker than her usual style. It features a lot of bad boys who are facing some tough issues as well as heroines who often have a dark past. It’s this baggage that weighs down the storyline a bit more, creating more emotion and depth. That being said, this style is not my favorite of Foster’s, which is why I debated to read this one when I first got it. However, since I read the other books in the series, I wanted to continue and give it another shot.

As expected, it is quite heavy. This isn’t a necessarily a bad thing. I love darker themed storylines, but something about this series doesn’t have the right balance to me. I feel like the dark themes and emotional pasts of the characters aren’t fully carried through in the book, meaning that they are just placed there for the effect of a darker tone, but the actual romance and the personal growth of the characters remains pretty simple. I guess that might attribute to Foster’s simplistic style, but I am always left feeling like everything wraps up too quickly or easily.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

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!

I agree her books often end gift-wrapped with a nice bow. It’s not a bad thing but it doesn’t always have to be that way.
