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 part single mom, part MC, part second chance, and part former bad boy. I love the Whiskey series Foster has created and was excited to dive into Josie’s book. Josie is a single mom who is down on her luck, living in a homeless shelter, and on the outs with her siblings. She doesn’t want to be distant from them any more, but she doesn’t know how to bridge the divide that the years of separation have created.
Jed Moon is a reformed bad boy that the Whiskey’s have taken under their wing. He is now a prospect for the Dark Knights MC as well as working for the mechanic shop the Whiskey’s own. He owes everything to the Whiskey’s and when he sees Jojo, a blast from his past, he is ecstatic to step up and help her.
This story blends a WHOLE lot of things together, but it works. I think all the books in this series have a lot going on, so Foster has created some very dynamic characters. Josie, aka Jojo, is mourning the unexpected loss of her husband, raising their son as a single mom, and trying to heal from her abusive past. Moon is trying to make up for the mistakes he has made in his life and become a person he can be proud of. He felt an instant connection to Josie when they met years ago, but then she was gone. He isn’t willing to let her go so quickly this time. Add in the adorableness of Hail and the other Whiskey kids and Mad About Moon gives you an entertaining read that will warm your heart!
