REVIEW: Let me start with this first, I absolutely loved this book. The story just felt so real and so heartbreaking.
Moonlight & Whiskey speaks to the heart in many ways. The story is simple yet it is so nicely told that it reaches the soul. Avery is not the average girl, she is different in many ways. She is beautiful but insecure, she is smart but doubts herself, she is outgoing but hides behind secrets. She is sensual but she denies herself the ability to show it. Avery speaks to many women, she has so many qualities yet she doesn’t see them because she is tormented by doubt.
Declan is dark, he is beautiful and talented but he keeps pain and doubts burry deep in his heart. Nothing will make him go beyond his comfort zone when it comes to women. He loves his music, he enjoys women but he will never open his heart to love because by doing so he fears to lose himself as his dad did.
Moonlight & Whiskey is a story that speaks of things that are relatable. It shows us things that touch the heart and leave scars, it is a story of self-discovery of new opportunities and passion. It is a story of awakening and second chances. Lynne did a fantastic job pairing these characters, not because of the sensuality that sparked from the first page but because she was able to convey what at times seems lost in many love stories we normally read. Not always one can find a heroine that feels real and genuine, Avery is exactly that. Declan while reserved gave us a fantastic glimpse into his heart and emotions by opening himself to the possibility of love and for not pushing his emotions aside even when doubt clouded his mind.
I was consumed by the connection between Declan and Avery, their relationship is far from perfect but they fought self-doubt, they fought their demons and focused on the feelings and emotions that originally brought them together. Tricia Lynne wrote a story that speaks to many of us. I highly recommend it.
