Synopsis from Amazon
Whisky “Sky” McKenna, daughter of a once notorious motorcycle club president, just wants to live her own life, without her father’s baggage, without her grandparents’ controlling rules, and preferably without stabbing her obnoxious employer with a fork.
For months, the only thing that kept Sky dragging herself out of bed and off to her job was the brief few moments she got to stand behind her mystery guy at the coffee shop. She didn’t know his name—she didn’t care, all she knew was that those precious few moments each day she spent fantasizing about having his babies was the highlight of her pathetically, mundane life.
Then he walked back into her life. Sawyer Riley; six feet of broody denim and leather with a demand that would turn her life upside down.
Suddenly mundane was beginning to look pretty darn good.
Holding onto her newly found freedom was proving difficult when everyone seemed hell bent on taking it away. How was she supposed to have a future when her past kept getting in the way?
I loved Whisky State of Mind. It is such a sweet and funny story. Add in just the right amount of mystery, a childhood crush turned hot biker, and a strong and independent lead character and I was hooked and completely lost in this story. Although the story had some serious subject matter, it was still humorous and very enjoyable.
I found the main characters to be very entertaining. Whisky was very strong and independent, knew what she wanted for her life, and worked hard to get it.
Whisky’s best friend, Bella, was very delightful; she had me cracking up. I loved how she knew Whisky so well and how she always told her how it was. Whisky couldn’t hide anything from Bella. Bella was the perfect person for Whisky to go to when she needed to talk something out.
Johnny, Whisky’s father, is the president of the Black Mustangs biker gang. He may have a tough exterior, but underneath the surface he is a teddy bear and so wise. My favorite quote from him in this book is, “There’s no such thing as failure if you’re still dreaming”. He has many wise words in the book, but that is my absolute favorite.
Sawyer is Whisky’s childhood crush/hero. Now, Sawyer is a hot and yummy biker in the Black Mustangs. I loved his connection with Whisky. You could tell from the beginning that he had a heart of gold. He is so stinkin’ sweet and caring. I loved how he was so protective of Whisky. He had a good head on his shoulders and was a real go-getter. If it had to be done, he would make sure it would get done, and get done right. He would do anything he had to do to take care of Whisky. I just couldn’t get enough of Sawyer. Luckily, I don’t have to yet. I’m starting the second book in the series, Whisky On My Mind.
