A fun, sexy, and emotionally riveting new stand-alone romance by New York Times best-selling author Melissa Foster. USA Today best seller The Gritty Truth is the perfect love story for those who enjoy fiercely loyal and insanely sexy alpha heroes, smart, sassy heroines, strong family bonds, bikers, babies, and more!
Recovering drug addict Quincy Gritt has fought his demons. He’s confessed to his crimes and conquered his addictions. He’s finally ready to go after sweet, sexy Roni, the gorgeous brunette who won a date with him in a charity auction five months ago and has been putting him off, and driving him wild, ever since.
Dancer Veronica “Roni” Wescott worked hard to escape the seedy area where she was raised and followed her dreams to Julliard, only to have them shattered in the blink of an eye. She fought hard and regained her footing, but then the rug was pulled out from under her again when the grandmother who raised her passed away, leaving Roni feeling adrift in a world she knows very little about outside of dance. And then there's Charlie Hunnam-lookalike Quincy Gritt - the man whose late-night texts pulled her through her grief and have been setting her heart aflutter for months
Quincy pulls out all the stops, determined to prove that their friendship is only the beginning of what’s destined to be so much more. Romantic nights lead to smoldering passion and a deep connection too strong to be denied. But when Quincy’s past comes back to haunt him, can he and Roni accept their new gritty truth, or will Quincy spiral back into the darkness and lose the future he fought so hard to have?
The Whiskeys are perfect beach listens with depth of story, strong family ties, and a wealth of emotions. Small-town love stories with happily ever afters guaranteed.

Audiobook Review…I cannot rave enough about Quincy Gritt’s story. I was listening to Jennifer Mack and Jacob Morgan read his story and tears were rolling down my cheeks. The story is hard, emotional, and wonderful. The narrators bring the fear, the strength, and the Gritt of the story to life. The love between Quincy and Roni is evident with every look, every word, and every touch. I could feel their love come to be as I heard their story be told.
Review…I have been waiting for Quincy’s story and it is finally here.
Quincy has been a character in other Whiskey books, and I knew he had quite the
story to tell. Never did I dream that Melissa Foster would take me on the ride
she did while telling the story. I cried I cringed, I hoped, and I dreamed of
Quincy and Roni. Both characters had a story to tell and their stories made
them perfect for each other.
Roni and Quincy are both recovering. They are recovering from different things, but they are both working to keep their past behind them and find a future they can thrive and grow in. While texting for months, blushing when Roni sees Quincy, and keeping their distance from each other they shared their lives, dreams, and hopes for the future. Quincy was taking notes and making plans on his way to win Roni’s heart. The first date between them put all other first dates to shame. I swooned while reading what Quincy was willing to do for Roni. It goes to prove that you do not have to spend a lot of money or go to extravagant ends to impress someone, just take the time to learn what is important to them and make it work for you.
Melissa Foster is amazing, talented, and knows just the words to write to pull her reader deep into her characters' world. Pick up your copy of The Gritty Truth. Read the entire series of The Whiskeys.
