I received a copy of this audiobook from the author in
exchange for my honest review. The gifting of this book in
no way influenced my review and all opinions are entirely my own.
As I say with all of Melissa’s books, I loved Finlay and Bullet. In this book, we see two people who each think they are broken beyond the ability to love anyone else. Finlay has lost people dear to her and Bullet has seen too much in his military career. But then they find each other and, little by little, break through the walls that have been built up around their hearts.
I am going to start right away with the narration. I haven’t read too many books that were narrated by men but Paul Woodson did an incredible job. He gave Bullet the perfect effect, but was still able to make Finlay sound just as natural (without putting too much girly tone into her).
Melissa’s books make it hard to focus on much other than the characters. One of the biggest pluses for me with this book was how Tinkerbell, Bullet’s dog, was such a big part of the story. Finlay starts out with a fear of dogs, because of an event in her past, so I didn’t expect Tinkerbell to be such a big part of it, even though she is very important to Bullet. But the way everything worked out as the story progressed, I loved Tink just as much as Bullet – and later Finlay – did.
I also really enjoyed the supporting characters in this book. Red – Bullet’s mom – and Dixie – his sister – were two of my favorites. Pretty much the entire Whiskey family. I loved how they all took Finlay into their family like it was the most natural thing in the world. Oh, and Bullet’s brother, Bones. So many characters and I loved them all!
I noticed one thing with this book that hasn’t really come up in the other books I have read of Melissa’s . . . So. Many. Characters. I realized with this book that I am going to have to re-read books as I go, just to absorb everything that Melissa puts into them. These characters have not only their worlds, but they drop into others. The magnitude of it really hit me this time and I can’t wait to dive back into Ty’s world and reconnect with the Bradens ❤
The Whiskey books are advertised as stand-alones, so this book wrapped up really well. Of course, I was left wanting more of these characters, but that’s nothing new. My collection of Melissa’s books continues to grow each time I pick one of them up, get addicted to a new family, and secretly buy three or four new books (shhh – I haven’t told the hubby yet lol).
To sum the book up – just because you think you’re broken, doesn’t always mean you are. And some times the sweetest things are exactly what you need ❤ Finlay and Bullet, I adore you!
Until the next adventure,
