Moonlight & Whiskey by Tricia Lynne follows a quick-witted sharp-tongued Avery and a darkened and hardened Declan. Avery is in NOLA for a vacation with her best friend Kat when she (literally) bumps into Declan. She goes off on him and he invites her to dinner. Avery has always been a little bit bigger, a little bit curvier, and knows there's no way a guy like Declan, southern rock band front man, would be into her. Tall, lean muscle, a hint of an Irish accent and covered in tattoos - Declan lets Avery know that he absolutely wants her.
What's supposed to only be a vacation fling, quickly grows deeper despite Avery and Declan both throwing protective walls up at every crossroad. Declan ignites something within Avery - loving her fast-talking-no-shit-taking-demeanor while Avery senses she's close to unraveling Declan's self-preserving control. Could this be the start of something magnetic or will these two burn each other down before they even get started?
I LOVED this one. I've never related more to anyone than Avery when she's at the waxing salon. This one will have you laughing out loud and I so identified with her constant inner monologue with herself. I loved how perfect Declan was for her. How he pushed her and yet they still sparred. How much he desired everything about her that she perceived as a flaw. I loved that this featured a curvy main character (because HI food is amazing and every woman should rock what God her.) For fans of all the steam - HELLO - this one is for you. If you don't like knowing exactly what happens behind closed doors, this one may make you blush but I was HERE. FOR. IT. ALL. You'll want to shoot whiskey with Avery and Declan while listening to Skynyrd so go get a copy because it's OUT NOW!
Thanks to Tricia Lynne, NetGalley and Random House for sending me an e-copy to review. All opinions are my own.
