Book Review: Whiskey Sharp Unraveled

The sharpest ache comes from wanting what you think you can't have

Maybe Dolan has lived independent, free-spirited and unattached since leaving home at sixteen. Whiskey Sharp, Seattle's sexy vintage-styled barbershop and whiskey bar, gave her a job and a reason to put down roots. Cutting hair by day, losing herself drumming in a punk rock band by night, she's got it good.

But a longtime crush that turns into a hot, edgy night with brooding and bearded Alexsei Petrov makes it a hell of a lot better.

Maybe's blunt attitude and carnal smile hooked Alexsei from the start. Protecting people is part of his nature and Maybe is meant to be his even if she doesn't know it. Yet. He can't help himself from wanting to protect and care for her.

But Maybe's fiery independent spirit means pushing back when Alexsei goes too far. Still, he's not afraid to do a little pushing of his own to get what he wants her in his life, and his bed, for good. Maybe's more intoxicating than all the liquor on his shelf and he's not afraid to ride the blade's edge to bind her to him."

First of, I do want to disclose that Ms. Dane is one of my go to authors.  It doesn't seem to matter what genre she is writing in.  It is always good.  To check out her other series and books, just click here.   

This book is set in one of my favorite sections of Seattle, Pioneer Square, and it even comes complete with some of the touristy sites such as the Underground Tour.  The barber shop, Whiskey Sharp, doesn't exist but it would fit right in.

What really sold me on this book however are the characters.  Maybe is loyal and protective to those she loves.  She isn't accustomed to being protected though.  That's where Alexsei comes in.  He is her boss and recently her lover.  He comes from a large family who adopted Maybe and her sister.  And he just can't seem to understand why Maybe's family would throw her away.

This book resonates with family drama and true love.  I would recommend WHISKEY SHARP UNRAVELED to any of my readers who enjoy a well written contemporary romance with a bit of an edge.

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
