TAMING MY WHISKEY by Melissa Foster is LIVE!

Buckle up for a wild ride as Dixie Whiskey finds forever love in TAMING MY WHISKEY, a funny, sexy, and emotionally riveting standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. The perfect love story for those who enjoy fiercely loyal and insanely sexy alpha heroes, smart, sassy heroines, strong family bonds, bikers, babies, and more!


Being the princess of the Dark Knights motorcycle club doesn’t come with a white knight or a fairy-tale castle, and that’s okay, because Dixie Whiskey has never needed a man to slay her dragons or make her whole. Even so, after watching each of her brothers fall in love, she’d sure like a shot at her own happily ever after. But with the Dark Knights watching over her and the only man she’s ever wanted out of reach, she’s not holding her breath.

As the launch of Silver-Stone Cycles’ biggest line approaches, Jace Stone is left needing a favor from the one woman who holds the power to take him to his knees. He knows when it comes to sinfully gorgeous and sharp-tongued Dixie Whiskey, he must stay on his toes and keep his walls firmly in place. But Jace needs her for his business—and Jace Stone always gets what he wants.

When the tall, gruff, and darkly handsome biker presents an opportunity that any other woman might see as the chance of a lifetime, Dixie turns him down flat. But Jace is determined, and he pulls out all the stops—sending Dixie’s overprotective brothers up in arms. Rebellious Dixie takes a stand—going after the freedom, and the man, she’s always wanted. One scorching kiss leads to an undeniable connection, but Jace isn’t looking to be tied down, and Dixie refuses to play second fiddle. Can two untamable hearts find forever love in each other’s arms?

READ THE FIRST CHAPTER

Reviewed by Anna on behalf of KFF

This is my first book by this author and book number six of The Whiskey series. This can be read as a standalone but filled with characters from previous books and a few crossovers from other series that will sometimes make you dizzy but in a merry way.

Dixie is the youngest child of the President of the Dark Knights MC; she’s the only daughter and has three older brothers: Bear, Bullet and Bones. She’s definitely not a pushover having learned how to stand up for herself. She manages the Whiskey Bros, a family-run bar and is so busy with their business she doesn’t have time to find love or maybe because she has three domineering big brothers that scare away any potential suitor. But when an opportunity comes along to visit New York and be a part of a new campaign, she jumps at it headfirst and not only lands on her feet but might also get the chance to finally bag Jace, her teenage crush.

Jace Stone is the self-made businessman/designer of Silver-Stone Cycles whose only goal in life is to be at the top of his game, his non-existent love life is the least of his concerns. However, making Dixie his calendar girl will finally give him the chance to know the woman who has always been at the periphery of his vision since she was eighteen years old. Dixie Whiskey must be the reason he makes that slow u-turn and rethinks his priorities in life.

Although I felt a wee bit lost in the early chapters of the book trying to connect the dots in the family tree of not only the Whiskey family but of the others as well, I really enjoyed getting to know all the characters in this story. Dixie is a strong female, an accomplished businesswoman and a straight talker. Although she comes across as a ball-buster she’s also kind-hearted. Jace Stone is the alpha hunkylicious billionaire who has close ties with the Dark Knights MC and knows the Whiskey family very well. There are no obvious antagonists in this story and no third parties that will throw a spanner to the combustible chemistry between Jace and Dixie. What they have to deal with is Jace’s view in life: not putting down roots and make his business his top priority in life.

The Whiskey brothers and other family members and friends add more fun to Dixie and Jace’s story. For someone who is a tough cookie, Dixie’s weak spot is Jace and her vulnerability makes her more human and relatable. Jace and Dixie is an equal match, both are driven alphas, strong and passionate. Told in dual points of view this feel-good, melt-your-knickers contemporary romance is the perfect book to read in a lazy Sunday afternoon.

She walked over to a table where three guys had just finished their beers and grabbed their empty bottles. “Refills?”
“Yeah, thanks,” one of the guys said.
She walked away with the human inferno that was Jace Stone on her heels.
“Dixie, how can you be upset with me? I gave you a twenty-thousand-dollar donation for the auction.”
She set the bottles on the bar and said, “Which I truly appreciate, but giving of yourself and giving money are two different things. One is easy and mindless. The other tells me who you are. It was a real eye-opener.” She crossed her arms and said, “What did you need help with anyway?”
Diesel grabbed the empty bottles, and Dixie said, “Another round, please.”
“I’m rolling out the Legacy line in the fall.”
“So I’ve heard. Bear’s pretty excited.” In addition to working at Whiskey Automotive, Bear worked part-time designing and building custom motorcycles for Jace’s company. He hadn’t worked on the Legacy line, but he raved about it.
“We all are. This line is my baby. I’ve put blood, sweat, and tears into it. It’s the first motorcycle line that will have bikes designed specifically for women. Nobody’s doing that, Dix. This is a huge deal.”
Bear had told her all about Jace’s innovative, sleek designs for women. It was a genius idea, and it didn’t surprise her that Jace had come up with it. But she couldn’t help thinking about Jace researching the contours of women’s bodies…
Diesel put three bottles on the bar, eyes locked on Jace. “Stone,” he said evenly.
“Diesel.” Jace lifted his chin in the manly greeting Dixie was accustomed to.
“Thanks, Diesel,” Dixie said, and as she headed to the table with Jace beside her, she said, “Congratulations on the line, but what does it have to do with needing me?” She set the bottles down, flashed a smile at the customers, and said, “Can I get you boys anything else?”
One of them looked her up and down lasciviously. Jace stepped closer, and the guy shifted his eyes away and said, “No. We’re good.”
Dixie spun on her heels, grabbed Jace’s arm, and dragged him to the side of the room. She felt Diesel’s antennae springing and glanced at the bar, mouthing, I’m fine! Turning her attention to Jace, she spoke in a harsh whisper. “You just fucked up my tip, and I don’t appreciate it. So whatever you have to say, say it and be gone, okay? I’ve got work to do.”
“That guy was looking at you like you were a piece of meat.”
“No shit. They all do.” Except now that she was thinking about it, Jace never had. Not once. In fact, in all the years she’d known him, this was the longest he’d ever looked at her. He didn’t live in Peaceful Harbor, but he traveled there often to see his brother Jared, who had signed up for the auction. Jared owned a restaurant in Pleasant Hill and lived there for several months out of the year. “I have a lot to do, Jace, so if you have more to say, please get on with it.”
“I’m launching a women’s clothing line called Leather and Lace when we launch the Legacy line. We’re making a calendar to promote the clothing and the new bikes. The photo shoot is next week, and the woman I hired to model got hurt and can’t make it. I want you to replace her.”
She blinked several times, unable to believe what she was hearing. An incredulous laugh tumbled out. “Do you even fucking know me, Stone? I am not a pinup girl!” She took a step away and he grabbed her arm, tugging her back to him and keeping her so close, she could see flecks of gold in his sexy hazel eyes.
“This is important to me, Dixie. I don’t want someone who fakes being a biker. I want an authentic woman. I want you.”
“Do I need to point out that I was your second choice, or maybe your tenth. I don’t know or care, because any way you cut it, the answer is no. I told you, I’m not a pinup girl.” She held his steady gaze with an ice-cold one of her own and said, “For the record, Whiskeys don’t play second fiddle to anyone. Sorry, Stone, but you’re out of luck.”
“Come on, Dixie,” he pleaded gruffly. “I’ll let you auction me off.”
“Too little, too late. The ballot is full.” The lie felt victorious. She yanked her arm free and said, “I have customers to help. Good luck with the line. I’m sure, like everything you touch, it will turn to gold.”
“With you on board, it’ll be legendary.”
“No.”
He leaned closer and lowered his voice to say, “This isn’t over, kitten.”
“What the hell did you just say?” Anger simmered inside her. She poked him in his rock-hard chest and said, “I’m nobody’s kitten, and you’re this close to earning a knee to your groin.”
“You definitely know how to use those claws, and you’re so sweet I bet you purr,” he said arrogantly. “You know you want to do it, Dix.”
His eyes drilled into her, causing heat to sear through her veins and her traitorous nipples to pebble into aching peaks. Damn, he played dirty.
“Careful, Stone. This kitten bites.”
