R E V I E W ➠ Running on Diesel by Melissa Foster

(The Whiskeys: Dark Knights at Peaceful Harbor #9)


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?


Not my first read by the author, she is one of my very top favorite and insta-read authors. Not only have I read almost every single one of her books but I also own more than 40 in paperbacks alone. Aaaaalso, this series is one of my favorites from her! I am and forever will be a WHISKEY FAN!

This one is a enemy-to because even though the heroine and hero have know each other for a while, the heroine comes from a hurtful past. Diesel has been protecting Tracey for a couple years now, keeping his distance but also keeping anyone from getting near her. What I love about these two is that the tension was so intense I was on the toes waiting for the blow up, and when it finally happened it was so raw, passionate and in need! Okay I will only say this because it’s a dislike of mine (personal preference) but the heroine does go on a date with another man even if he was a good guy and I actually can’t wait to read his book also but I had to skip that portion, I tend to read with all my feelings and knew if I fully read the date part because it wasn’t a bad date per-say there is a kiss involved, but the heroine did not feel anything for the date. They def were not meant to be but just because it’s in here in detail, I had to stop, skip that part and continue. That said, it’s that date that actually pushes the heroine over the edge and the beautiful explosion happened!

I have to say that Diesel is beyond SWOONY in a dark and grumpy way, but once you find out the hurt behind his grumpiness, you will cry rivers. It’s beautiful to see the heroine stand up for him, and want to be part of his life, be honest with him, connect. Everything about these two was beautiful even when painful!

If you want enemy-to with a lot of sexual tension build up that will have you explode, a grumpy, big, handsome and swoony hero, a strong heroine that has been hurt in the worst way possible and a love that you see coming from a mile THIS IS YOUR READ! I would highly recommend this whole series, the Whiskey Series is something you will want to re-read in the years to come. p.s. the title makes so much sense I can’t! The shock surprise in this will have you in tears and wishing you could go back! Heartbreaking but so damn beautiful!

p.s. Melissa just keep going forever on this series please because WE NEED MORE!

  1. I adore Melissa Foster’s books so much! I have a large selection of hers on my Kindle but am slowly building up my paperbacks. Diesel and Tracey were a great match!
