“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.
