POV: First Person
When life gives you curves, you gotta learn how to rock them.
Successful businesswoman Avery Barrows likes her dips and curves, but she’s sick of the haters telling her that she should be ashamed of her body instead of embracing it. Determined to send them a big f*** you, Avery resolves to cut loose during a girls’ trip, hightailing her quick-mouthed, plus-sized self to New Orleans. So, what’s a smart woman with a little extra gotta do to get laid in this town?
Not much if you ask Declan McGinn, the lead singer of BlackSmith. Tall, dark, and tattooed, with a body made for sin, Declan prefers his women as curvy as his guitars. Avery’s sharp tongue and keen mind makes him want her even more.
As they burn up the sheets, Avery and Declan realize this is no one-night (or even one-week) stand. But for all of her bluster, Avery isn’t sure she can handle any more rejection. Besides, Declan has demons of his own. Now Avery has a choice to make: play it safe, or place her trust in the hands of a man who’s as tempting as the devil himself.

Avery and her girlfriend slip down to New Orleans post Mardi Gras for a little fun and relaxation. She may have wanted to get her groove on, but never expected to lose her heart in a matter of days.
Declan doesn’t do relationships. No one has ever captured his attention long enough. However, one little mishap in a lobby where he not only literally fell over Avery, but then proceeded to get his balls handed to him by her, and he was a goner.
From the very beginning Moonlight & Whiskey captured my attention. At first it was a trip to get waxed that had me laughing so hard I was crying. Followed by steamy rock star loving that had me needing a cold shower. And it was all mixed up with the things that randomly flew out of Avery’s mouth. Tricia Lynne did an incredible job with this book!
I also wanted to add that Avery is a curvy girl (like me) and the things she worries about are genuine concerns for girls like us. Her character was written perfectly to portray real world truths, wrapped in a little sass for entertainment. Okay, a lot of sass. Her mouth has almost no filter. Love it!
