Review of Whisky State of Mind and Whisky on my Mind by Karlene Blakemore-Mowle


Whisky “Sky” McKenna, daughter of a once notorious motorcycle club president, just wants to live her own life, without her father’s baggage, without her grandparents’ controlling rules, and preferably without stabbing her obnoxious employer with a fork.

For months, the only thing that kept Sky dragging herself out of bed and off to her job was the brief few moments she got to stand behind her mystery guy at the coffee shop. She didn’t know his name—she didn’t care, all she knew was that those precious few moments each day she spent fantasizing about having his babies was the highlight of her pathetically, mundane life.

Then he walked back into her life. Sawyer Riley; six feet of broody denim and leather with a demand that would turn her life upside down.

Suddenly mundane was beginning to look pretty darn good.
Holding onto her newly found freedom was proving difficult when everyone seemed hell bent on taking it away. How was she supposed to have a future when her past kept getting in the way?

 I was pleasantly surprised by this book.  It was refreshing and original.  The storyline never dragged.  I was hooked from page one.
The characters were great and I loved Sawyer and Whisky's personalities.  They had depth and charisma.  Even the rest of the characters were fresh and unique.
The plot was interesting and it wasn't a copy of all the other new adult contemporary romances out there right now.  It had it's own voice and I appreciated that.
There isn't much else I can say about the awesomeness of this book except that it deserves five glittery stars for being a fantastic read!


Life for Whisky McKenna is no longer hanging in limbo. She’s now part owner of her father’s Bar and Grill and back in college finishing her degree. With Sawyer Riley; all six feet of brooding denim and leather at her side, life should be getting easier…but loving Sawyer was never going to be an easy choice; not when he came with a motorcycle club as a third wheel in their relationship.
Added to that, a new threat has emerged bringing with it a complication in the form of her old lover, Caleb Santiago.
Past secrets and old hurts are forced to the surface as Whisky struggles to adjust to her life as Sawyer’s old lady while trying not to lose everything she’s worked so hard for in the process. Can she love Sawyer and accept his life without letting go of everything that was once important to her? Or will sharing him with the club be too big a sacrifice?


I loved this follow up to Whisky State of Mind.  The story blew my mind.  I loved the relationship that Sawyer and Whisky share with the club.  They treat everyone like family and are treated the same in return.
The characters were consistent and equally as good in this sequel.  The first book was a tough act to follow in my opinion, and the author nailed it.  I LOVE Sawyer!!! There, I got my fan girling out of the way ;)
I can't wait to read more by this author in the future.  This book gets five glittery stars for being a stellar sequel!
