Fall in love with Jed and Josie in this emotionally captivating, sexy standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. 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!
Can true love strike twice in one lifetime? Josie Beckley refuses to believe there is a limit on happiness. A decade after she escaped her abusive parents and lost touch with her siblings, the death of her husband leaves her and her son homeless. But Josie has never been one to wallow in sadness, and when she takes a chance on reconnecting with her siblings, a sinfully handsome bright light from her past shows up and offers to help her find a way out of the darkness.
Most people wouldn't see Jed Moon as someone to look up to. He's been in and out of jail and has lived a less-than-stellar lifestyle. But years ago one woman saw through his nonsense, and he's never forgotten her. Now she's back in his life, and as a prospect for the Dark Knights motorcycle club, Jed promises to keep an eye on the sassy, sexy single mother who has never stopped lighting his fantasies on fire.
Jed and Josie's combustible connection is stronger than ever. Having Josie and her son in his life brings out all of Jed's protective instincts-and visions of a future he never imagined having. But when a shocking revelation knocks the insatiable lovers to their knees, it forces them to make choices that could change their lives forever.
Mad About Moon is the fifth installment in the Whiskey’s series and yeah I am not really reading these books in order even though I know I probably should. But the blurb in this one was what I was really in the mood for and lately I have been mood reading and its been grand. I definitely think I had really high expectations for this book….maybe a bit too high because I had a hard time getting into this one especially the first half. Its a solid story and really good just I didn’t click with the romance for a bit but did enjoy the story overall
Mad About Moon is a story of a second chance love and single parenthood. Jed and Josie met years previous when they were young and fresh and a bit wild. But there was a fierce connection between them but at the time neither was ready for it and went their separate ways. Jed got wild and crazy, did some things he regretted and thanks to the MC he found his way back to solid ground. Josie got married shortly after breaking things off with Jed, a loving man who gave her a beautiful son. But then her husband passed away from a heart defect and financially things are a struggle, barely making it and reconnecting with her sister and brother and stumbling into Jed and the sparks between them fly more fiercely than ever.
“It’s okay, sweetheart,” Red said sweetly. “You’ve been on your own for a long time, but you’ll never have to be alone again.”
Mad About Moon is a story that really delves deep into some serious issues while at the same time not being too dark or serious in those issues. She brings some great humor and levity to the story that offers that balance that is really needed to not overwhelm the reader. I honestly struggled with this couple at times to be honest. I just didn’t quite connect with their romance in many ways especially there in the beginning. It did eventually thaw out but it did take time before I warmed up to this pairing. I did love seeing Josie reconnect with her siblings….that is where I really got to all the feels. They all have suffered such trauma and yet had various paths but find that unity and common ground.
“You can’t choose your parents, but you can choose what kind of parent you will be,”
I really bonded with Jed and Josie’s little boy and he just charmed me in so many ways. Jed is such a strong hero. He has his demons and has made his share of mistakes but has grown in so many ways that is so admirable. I loved seeing his growth and he is a prospect for the MC and boy I wish all prospects were written like Jed. Because WOW….he is one incredible man in all his endeavors that we see here. I especially loved his interactions with Biggs and his sons. It just made me fall more in love with this family even more.
Overall, even though I struggled with the first beginnings, this story offered clarity, a sense of healing and growth and a passionate love worth fighting for and a family coming together in such heartfelt ways.
