Whiskey.jpgStone Black is a successful business man who has demons in his closet. He is broken-maybe even beyond repair. He has never been in a successful relationship, because he doesn’t let anyone get close enough.

Anaya Cole has recently come into money and she is looking to invest. Mr. Black offers to help Anaya invest her inheritance so that she can open her abuse center.

There attraction is overwhelming, but Anaya doesn’t want to want him. After all he is a man-whore.

Ms. Cole has penetrated my mind and I just can’t seem to get her out of it. I have to have her, so have her I will. If it’s the last Goddamn thing I do. I will screw her until she can’t walk and then I will move on with my life just like I have always done.

Once Anaya tastes the whiskey on his breath, she can’t stop. She craves more, and when her head and her heart collide, she is left with an important decision-Walk away or risk being burned?

After all, Whiskey never felt so good.

 review
What a true romantic Mr Black is – screwing another girl to get Anaya off his mind.  Classy.
There is definite chemistry between the protagonists in this tale.  And the story is definitely smoking hot.  I also thought that the dual POV worked very well as a narrative mechanism.
But as characters, he is arrogant to the point of being unlikeable.  She is too intelligent to fall for his play, but she does.  And then the plot just goes from one sex scene to another.
Don’t get me wrong.  The writing isn’t bad – like I said – hot; but for my taste, perhaps it could do with a bit more relationship development.  As it stands, this story is just missing that final piece to elevate it to a more rounded experience.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

About the author
 
I am a small town girl, I currently reside in the same city that I was born and raised in. I love watching teen drama shows, reading, writing, and listening to music.
I have a loving family my mother who has taught me about love and lasting relationships. A father who pushes me to excel and succeed at anything I desire.  My younger sister and I have become very close over the years and she is very supportive of everything I do.
I have been married for nine years to my best friend. I love my husband more than anything. He is so kind, loving and supportive. He likes to joke with his friends that, “My wife writes porn.”
We have an eleven-year-old daughter who is so smart and talented. I can’t believe how fast they grow up.  She is turning into quite the young lady.  She aspires to be so many things and I encourage them all. She loves to write songs and has even tried her hand at writing a book. Maybe one day she will follow my example.
Being that I am from a small town, I have made some long lasting relationships. I have two best friends that I have known for most of my life. We have continued to stick together over the years and we are always there for one another. I couldn’t imagine my life without them.
Animal lover I am not, but I have a headstrong dog that is the absolute best-behaved dog I have ever seen and a cat that drive me insane, but I love her nonetheless.
I have always aspired to be a neonatal nurse and I continue to work towards that goal. Maybe one day it will come true. However, writing has become my new favorite love.
I never would have dreamed that I would become a writer, but some really great people convinced me otherwise.  Eventually I decided to give it a try and what do you know? I just finished writing my fourth book and I couldn’t be happier. I will continue to write in my spare time with hopes of it becoming a full time career at some point in my life. And I look forward to many more years of bring you the best books that I can.
