Eight months is a long damn time to have the hots for a woman who keeps a guy at arm’s length. But Crystal Moon is no ordinary woman. She’s a sinfully sexy, sass-mouthed badass, and the subject of Bear Whiskey’s midnight fantasies. She’s also one of his closest friends.
Just when Crystal thinks she has her life under control, scorching-hot, possessive, aggressive, and fiercely loyal Bear pushes all her sexual buttons, relentless in his pursuit to make her his.
The more Bear pushes, the hotter their passion burns, unearthing memories for Crystal that are best kept buried. But there’s no stopping the collision of her past and present, catapulting the two lovers down an emotional and sexually charged road that has them questioning all they thought they knew about themselves.

After reading this book, I kind of beat myself up a bit for not reading the previous book because I missed some of the amazing moments between Bear and Crystal in the first eight months of their “relationship”. To read this book and see the immediate chemistry these two characters have and to have not read their previous encounters such as when they first met felt wrong. Regardless of these feelings, this was yet another AMAZING book by Melissa Foster, further cementing her into my auto-buy author category.
Crystal Moon has Bear Whiskey listed as “Him” in her cell phone because for the last eight months this motorcycle riding, arrogant yet gorgeous man has injected himself into her life to the point that she needs to put distance between her and him anyway she can. The only problem with this method of hers is that her attraction and feelings towards Bear are starting to make it extremely difficult to keep resisting his advances. And boy has Bear made advances. Relentless should be Bear’s middle name because he does not waste any opportunity to let Crystal know that he is interested.
But Crystal has some reasons to distance herself from Bear, especially from an intimacy standpoint, because she has gone through a lot in her past and is still working on overcoming what she has unfortunately experienced. Even though she may be physically trying to keep away from Bear does not mean she is completely silent to his attempts to go out with him. It is usually during these moments when Crystal’s snark comes out and hilarious and playful banter ensues between the two of them. I’m a sucker for banter between characters so I was hooked very early on. You could clearly see the chemistry between Crystal and Bear it was practically rising off the pages, or the screen in my case.
Though the banter was definitely entertaining, Bear stole the show for me. It has been a while since I have been smitten with a male lead but Bear Whiskey filled that void. I mean his name alone makes you curious as to who he is. The fact that Bear is part of a motorcycle club with his family and rides a motorcycle only made me fall for him harder. But while he may be one gorgeous, sexy, bad ass alpha male, it was his heart and his love for Crystal that really did me in. There is one moment involving flowers that literally took my breath away and made my heart ache because it was such an insanely beautiful moment and showed just how much Bear cared for Crystal. Bear may be relentless in his pursuit of Crystal but he also has a ton of patience and understanding. He is book boyfriend material for me that’s for sure.
If you are looking for a romance where the chemistry between the two characters is off the freaking charts but also has a lot of heart to it, then go read Truly, Madly, Whiskey. Bear Whiskey is waiting for you ;).
