The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of Whiskey (Whiskey Sour, #1) . . .
Dark, dangerous, mysterious, sensual, desire ridding, lust consuming, brutal at times, mindless, raw, dirty, and more behind these pages. Whiskey has a life that no one wants to lay claim to but more the most have lived in some way or another. Some are ashamed of what lead them to the direction in which they find themselves. Others find a way to cope with what life had dealt them. Welcome to Whiskey's world.
Whiskey was strong, determined and willing to do what it took to make it. She did not allow for life to keep her down. She did not allow for life to take away the on thing that was good for her. Sawyer gave Whiskey something that was tangible. Something that tied them together. Something unbreakable.
Life has a way of handing you intensity when you feel that things are going well. This happens to Whiskey and Sawyer. There was darkness, intense emotional triggers, and the gritty grime of life when you have nothing else. Come along read this well paced, rich characters, dark journey of Whiskey and the one man that gave her true hope when there was none.
I got sucked in by the teasing blurb a month ago, then the excerpt from a few weeks ago. Then I got pulled all the way into Whiskey's world with the read. I was captivated right from the start to the final words on the page. I have to say that I will be picking up the next. I look forward to all the ladies of Whiskey Sour to have their own stories told. This read will not be for everyone, but if you crave a little something different , a little something on the darker side of life. Then I would suggest picking up Whiskey.

I just shake my head, I don’t want to get into this here. “Don’t Sawyer, please.”
“I don’t understand. I thought …. I thought we had a connection, something more than that!”
Christopher starts to laugh. He grabs me by my waist and pulls me closer to him. “You thought she had feelings for you … didn’t you? You are a complete fool, taken in by a bit of pussy. I am going to live on this one for weeks.”
I can’t believe he is being so cruel to Sawyer, did he really have feelings for me? I look at him and beg him with my eyes to help me. Then I look back at the floor and ignore everyone.
Christopher is still talking to Sawyer, “I think it’s time to leave this party, Whiskey. Although I’m having so much fun, I think I would much prefer to sink my cock in your pussy.” He pulls me to turn and start walking off.
Sawyer reaches out and pulls me away from Christopher and then he punches him in the face. I scream, Tilda screams and the bouncers come running.
“Excuse me gentlemen, can you please sort out your differences outside.”
“Don’t worry WE were just leaving.” Christopher takes my hand and drags me to the lift, which just happens to be free and as soon as he is inside he slams his fist into the button, the door closes as I see Sawyer coming towards it.
“Well that was a really interesting night Whiskey. Your pussy has had a lot of attention tonight and I haven’t even started with you.”
“I’m not going to sleep with you Christopher.”
“Yes, you are!”
“No, I don’t have to, it’s my prerogative.” I cross my arms.
He pushes me against the back of the lift, and grabs my chin to hold it in place. “You’re prerogative went out of the window sweetheart when I found out you slept with HIM. Whore!”
He tries to kiss me, I bite his lip, It only seems to turn him on more. I try to push him off me, “Get off me Christopher.”
He starts laughing like a maniac and I start to get really scared. All the customers are vetted by Kings X Companions so we don’t come across any weirdo’s – I wonder how he slipped through the net. I can’t wait to speak to Marcia ? tomorrow and make sure he can’t hire anyone else.
“I’ll find my own way home,” I say as we get out of the lift. I try pulling my arm away from him.
“You’re very funny! I paid for company for tonight, I haven’t even started yet. Then I want to see you being a whore and only then will I think about letting you go home. Only think about it mind you.”
I can hear myself screaming at him. “You’re a fucking psycho Christopher. If I don’t go home, then Tilda will know who I’m with. She knows I don’t want to go home with you already, so she WILL be watching out for me.”
“Shut up, bitch.” He drags me to a waiting car. I start to feel a bit sick and dizzy. He opens the door and pushes me inside.
“What the fuck man?” Some guy says as he gets in beside me and slams his door.
“Sorry, there was an opportunity and I took it. She won’t remember you don’t worry. I slipped something in her drink earlier. Should give us time to get her to the farm.”
“But C, we didn’t agree to this. We talked about it, fantasised about it, but we never agreed to it.”
“Stop moaning and man up T. This is happening and it’s happening now.” His voice is getting really slurry, I can’t quite make out what he is saying.
I close my eyes, I feel so tired. I don’t want to be here. I want to be tucked up at home in my own bed. I can’t hear him talking anymore … it’s dark …

I am a mother to two young children, who in
turn keep me young. I live in Dublin, Ireland but, I’m originally from South
Devon in the UK. I work full time in a pharmacy and write in all my spare time:
in my lunch hour, when watching TV at night and anywhere.
I have always been interested in reading from
a young age and then 2 years ago I was given a kindle as a present and it was
the best thing that happened to me. I was able to read lots of books ever week
and then I started to write reviews for all the books I read. I took this one
step further and started my own facebook page – Sparkling Pink Bookshelf. I
intended to upload all of my reviews for the books I read. This was purely for
pleasure and then I answered a post on Facebook for someone to read for reviews
and thought I had died and gone to heaven. I was reading about 7/8 books a
week, the kindle made this achievable. I would read at any opportunity I could,
even staying up til the small hours to finish a book. I loved it. Then one day
I was asked to beta read a book – I loved this side of it, it was so exciting.
I have worked with a number of indie authors and have remained loyal to a few
select authors and I beta read all their work.
After a year or more of doing this, I thought
maybe I could write some of the stories that were in my head and I just decided
to write and see what happened. I wrote about 70% of a story and then saw a
post for the NaNoWriMo competition – to write 50,000 words in 30 days, I
decided that this was a challenge I wanted to take and the Til Death Us Do Part
series was born. I am always
thinking of situations that can be turned into a story and have started a few
stories, which in turn will be completed and released to my readers. I love to
hear what my readers have to say about my work and please find my links below. Thank you for your support and I hope
you enjoy this series of books as much as I enjoyed writing them.
