  Book Description: Harper Davenport is widowed, homeless, and nearly broken. So, in a moment of bravery—or possibly stupidity—she moves her and her six-year-old son, Greyson, back to the only place that has ever felt like home. Too bad starting over is exactly as hard as she feared it would be. The last thing she needs is for Kade Dawson to be her new boss. The man is talented, handsome, and ridiculously magnetic. He draws people in with his looks and hooks them with his personality. Harper is no exception, but she has more than herself to consider. Kade’s reputation is well earned, but lately, he’s been craving something more. As soon as Harper walks into his life, he’s captivated. Only…things are complicated. Despite his desperate attempts to keep things platonic between them, Harper still manages to become the best part of his day. He just doesn’t know if he can be the man she and Greyson deserve. Sometimes, falling back into old patterns is easier than taking a chance on something he knows will change everything. If Kade and Harper can manage to let go of the past, they might just be able to have a future they’ve both only ever dreamed of.

* Books in the Worth series can be read as standalones*


Excerpt:  

Harper didn’t want to be here. 

Not in this building. 

Not in this dress. 

And definitely not at this point in her life. 

But life didn’t give a flying squirrel about her feelings.

She’d been rooted to this same spot for nearly two hours, and there was still no end in sight to the barrage of people offering their tear-filled condolences. 

As far as she was concerned, funerals were a cruel ritual that forced people in the depths of their grief to pull themselves together enough to appear presentable, so they could make conversation with people they really didn’t give a damn about.

Harsh? Maybe.

But Harper had been feeling a bit harsh lately, which only made it that much harder to keep up the act. If she were on the outside, she might feel differently, but it had only been six days since her entire world had been irrevocably changed, and she was still struggling to pick up the shattered pieces. 

Harper didn’t even know most of these people, but still, she accepted one unwanted hug after the next because that was what she was supposed to do in this situation. Wasn’t it? 

Truthfully, Harper didn’t have the first clue as to how she was supposed to be acting. 

Was she supposed to be crying? 

Because she wasn’t. 

Was she supposed to be making small talk? 

Because she didn’t have anything to say. 

Was she supposed to be doing anything? 

Was there really a proper way for her to act when burying her husband? The man that she’d spent the last ten years of her life with. The father of her child. A man she never really knew at all.

If proper decorum existed for this situation, she’d appreciate it if someone clued her in. 

She’d been told lilies would be appropriate for the flower arrangements, and she’d agreed even though she hated them. She’d been told which photo of Reed would be suitable to put beside the guest booklet. She’d been told which casket to purchase and which poem to print in the pamphlets. Yet not a single person had given her tips on how to forgive a dead man.

Review for Running on Diesel by Melissa Foster with a Giveaway

 


A funny, sexy, and emotionally riveting standalone contemporary romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. RUNNING ON DIESEL 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! 

Desmond “Diesel” Black is a Nomad with the Dark Knights motorcycle club. He protects others with his life and always rides alone. Tracey Kline left the only family she had for a man who broke more than her spirit, leaving her untrusting and on her own. When a twist of fate reveals pieces of the other no one else sees, will they be able to help each other mend their past hurts and learn to trust the chemistry and connection that’s too strong to deny? 


The Whiskeys are perfect beach reads with depth of story, strong family ties, and a wealth of emotions. Small town love stories with happily ever afters guaranteed. The Dark Knights motorcycle club is not a typical MC book. These bad-boy bikers are tough, but they have hearts of gold...and they're not afraid to use them. For more hot WHISKEY love stories, check out Melissa’s other Whiskey novels below. And don't miss RIVER OF LOVE (The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor), the first story in which the Whiskeys were introduced!

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

My Thoughts:  I have anticipated Diesel’s story for so long.  He has worked at the Whiskey Bar with his growl and scowl for a couple years and the sparks have flown between Tracey and him for the entire time.   When Running on Diesel came across my desk, I was so excited.   I started the book, turned page after page, and could not put it down. 

Diesel’s story is one that was not shared in other books in this series, he was a BIG dark secret, but I knew that his life had not been easy.   As he fell for Tracey, he opened his heart and let his past come out.  In letting it out he learned more about his family, himself, and what his future could be if he just let people into his life.   I loved seeing him become more open to people, let people into his life, and show how he cared for others.   Do not get me wrong, he kept his growl and scowl, but his smile showed up a little more often.  

 Once again Melissa Foster wrote a book with angst, laughs, love, and friendships.   She took tough characters and opened their hearts showing them that there was more to life then what they had.   She matched up two people who were perfect for each other.   I will be looking for glimpses of Diesel and Tracey’s future in other Love In Bloom Books.

In TAMING MY WHISKEY… 
Being the princess of the Dark Knights motorcycle club doesn’t come with a white knight or a fairy-tale castle, and that’s okay, because Dixie Whiskey has never needed a man to slay her dragons or make her whole. Even so, after watching each of her brothers fall in love, she’d sure like a shot at her own happily ever after. But with the Dark Knights watching over her and the only man she’s ever wanted out of reach, she’s not holding her breath.

As the launch of Silver-Stone Cycles’ biggest line approaches, Jace Stone is left needing a favor from the one woman who holds the power to take him to his knees. He knows when it comes to sinfully gorgeous and sharp-tongued Dixie Whiskey, he must stay on his toes and keep his walls firmly in place. But Jace needs her for his business—and Jace Stone always gets what he wants.

When the tall, gruff, and darkly handsome biker presents an opportunity that any other woman might see as the chance of a lifetime, Dixie turns him down flat. But Jace is determined, and he pulls out all the stops—sending Dixie’s overprotective brothers up in arms. Rebellious Dixie takes a stand—going after the freedom, and the man, she’s always wanted. One scorching kiss leads to an undeniable connection, but Jace isn't looking to be tied down, and Dixie refuses to play second fiddle. Can two untamable hearts find forever love in each other’s arms?

In THE GRITTY TRUTH...
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?
