    Sometimes what you find isn’t what you were searching for

    Beau Petty has been searching his whole life. Searching for a place that fills all the empty spaces in him. Searching for a way to tame the restlessness. Searching for answers to the secret he’s never stopped trying to solve. What he wasn’t searching for was a woman to claim all of him, but when Cora Silvera walks back into his life, he’s ready to search out all the ways he can make her his.

    Cora has spent her life as the family nurturer, taking care of others. But now she’s ready to pass that job on to someone else. It’s time to make some changes and live for herself. It’s in that moment that her former teenage crush reappears and the draw and the heat of their instant connection is like nothing either of them has experienced. He craves being around her. She accepts him, dark corners and all.

    Beau thinks Cora’s had enough drama in her life. He wants to protect her from the secrets of his past, even if it means holding back the last pieces of himself. But Cora is no pushover and she means to claim all those pieces.

    A second chance romance between teen crush Beau Petty and Cora Silvera took 17 years to come to fruition. The fact that Cora is a few years younger no longer matters and their electric connection to each other is on a par with that of the previous two couples in the series.

    What I really liked about this pairing was the fact neither Beau nor Cora tried to make the other change in anyway. Unlike her domineering mother Beau accepted Cora's dreams and supported her need to finally take control of her own life rather than always smoothing the way for the rest of her family.

    Cora on the other hand has no desire for Beau to close off anything from her that he thinks would make a difference in how she perceives him. She too accepts him for who he is with no reservations or doubts that he is the one for her.

    Having both come from a less than normal childhood these two people find themselves able to connect on so many levels that it feels almost too good to be true.

    The one thing however that truly stands out is that despite any and all obstacles that crop up in the couples path they are willing to work together to make their relationship a lasting one.

    It has been quite the roller coaster ride waiting for Cora to get her own story. It was totally worth the wait for me!

    Favorite Quotes:

    Beau’s had quite the colorful life. I mean. Wow. Also the modeling shots alone might have made me pregnant.

    Naked, he’s like one of those magical things you’re not supposed to look at directly or you get ensorcelled.

    I guess I need to make an honest man out of you or people might think you were easy… You must really love me to want my crazy mixing up with your crazy. You do realize we might have just bred the Kwisatz Haderach, right?

    People take pictures of you. You’re not just a pretty surfing tourist. You’re Beau Petty. And so some video of you giving me the business would end up online and everyone would savage my thighs…

    Rachel snatched the dog from her sister and Cora decided not to inform them that Beau had fed Jezzy an entire can of those gross sausages that smelled like dog food. Cute though Jezzy was, she also farted like a demon, and then pretended it wasn’t her.

    My Review:

    This book was a delight, I’ve never read this author before but look forward to further indulging myself with her magical combinations of words. Silly me, I jumped into a series with book three, and while it probably would have deepened my enjoyment and understanding of the secondary characters, it was not necessary to have read the previous books as Whiskey Sharp: Torn had strong legs, like mighty oaks, and was more than capable of standing alone. However, I am greedy and want to read the two earlier books as well as anything else this staggeringly talented wordsmith has scribbled.

    The characters were multi-layered, alluring, and captivating while adorned with fascinating and complicated histories. The storylines were engaging, unique, intriguing, and laced with levity, zinging banter, bawdy wit, and clever humor. The copious meals that were prepared and enjoyed tantalized and tortured this salivating dieter, as they sounded as drool-worthy as the lascivious and bootylicious sensual scenes.

    This was my favorite type of story as the featured couple enjoyed a refreshingly sweet, sensual, and profoundly nurturing and supportive relationship that was relatively conflict-free. And I absolutely loved this couple; they were adorable and precious, perfectly matched, irresistible, and off-the-charts passionate together. They were totally smitten and besotted and good to and for each other. I reveled in the ease, thoughtfulness, and care they took with each other, as well as their ability to scorch the sheets and singe the ceiling tiles. I have to adore a sweet and sexy man who can inventively cook in every room in the house.

    I have been a huge fan of the Whiskey Sharp series as all the books are just wonderful, heartfelt and sexy romances. I was so looking forward to Cora's romance with Beau after that brief glimpse at the end of Vic and Rachel's story. This story was absolutely beautiful and full of swoons. I never wanted it to end!

    When Beau and Cora reconnect after almost two decades, sparks fly and their friendship picks up right where it left off. I loved this story. It was a very low-angst romantic story filled with all the swoons and sighs. I love how Beau just wanted to treat Cora like a priceless gem and she in return pampered him to show her adoration. This was such a sweet story. However, while I loved that there was not an overdramatic climax or that this wasn't a story full of angst, I did find myself hoping that the story would unfold a little faster. It seemed like Torn was almost a daily account of their romance and while amazing and full of fantastic characters, it was somewhat slow.

    All in all, I will miss this series and hope that we receive Beau's story in the future! I would like to thank Netgalley and Harlequin US for an advanced copy of this book for an advanced review. Bravo! 4.5 stars! ~Ratula

    Torn intrigued me right away because it was a little like a second chance in that the characters knew each other before, but not totally a second chance since they weren't dating before. Its a low angst story which I adore; however, I think it was a little slow because not much happens. Its more of a chronicle of their relationship; again, I appreciated the low angst since both of them have had enough angst in their past, but readers may find this a bit of a slow pace.

    Cora and Beau are total #relationshipgoals! They are truly devoted to making each other happy. It was such a pleasant read to see a more mature relationship as opposed to the drama-llama types with miscommunications and manufactured problems. Bottom line, while this might be a slow plot for those who love the angst, its perfect for those who like to see a couple work together on real life issues. Torn will appeal to readers who are sick of new adult relationships that are fraught with immature rubbish.

    While this is book 3 of the series, you can read them as stand alones. I haven't read the previous books and it didn't affect my enjoyment at all!

    Another fun read set in this fabulous world Lauren Dane created. I enjoyed Cora's and Beau's story quite a bit. It was lovely to see them grow closer and watch their emotions deepen. It was also great to see Cora stand up for herself.

    The only downside for me was that it missed a bit of drama. There wasn't really a Black Moment when everything seemed to be lost or when you think as a reader "how are they going to make it?".

    Still a good read and I hope we see more stories told here.

    They met years ago when she was a teenager and he was twenty something. When they meet again, sparks fly. They are hot together, really hot. He's a keeper for anyone even with a slightly messed up past. It's a very sweet romance with a little angst and lots of hot sex. Got to see all the old gang again.

    Why three stars you ask if it sounds like I like it and them? There's no resolution to her and her mother. I didn't feel like there was a resolution with him and his past.

    Whiskey Sharp: Torn, the third and final book in the Whiskey Sharp series was a quick, entertaining read. Cora and Beau are charming, funny, practically perfect characters. For me, they were a little too perfect. Even though they knew each other briefly, and not romantically, twenty years before, their relationship progressed at light speed. I did feel a connection between the two, but Ms. Dane spent a lot of words telling the reader about that connection, which is almost always an issue for me. I prefer to see it on the page through their interactions, which I did, so the words felt unnecessary. I felt these two characters didn’t quite fit with the Dolan sisters and their men, even though Ms. Dane went to great pains to explain how the relationships came about, they just didn’t feel genuine. As charming as they are, I thought the story lacked the complexity and depth of the first two books in this series. They shop, they discuss art and poetry, they eat—Beau is a chef, his food sounds amazing--they hang out with friends, and have a lot of sex, but there’s just not a lot of substance here, and no real conflict. They each have family issues, which are left unresolved, for the most part, and neither of which is a source of genuine conflict for the couple. Cora’s mother is a narcissist/composer/artist, who comes across as a horrible person, even though her family loves her (I’m not sure why) and spend a lot of time and energy “handling’ her. I was hoping for some type of ‘come to Jesus’ moment, but instead Cora’s father smiles indulgently and he and Cora re-direct conversations. Because there wasn’t a resolution, Cora’s relationship with her mom, which is kind built up to be an issue, just fizzles as a conflict. Beau’s family issues are also left hanging, albeit with slightly more resolution than Cora’s. I did really enjoy Cora and Beau’s romance and watching their relationship grow, but it was a bit fluffy for me, and felt a little forced. I love (and expect) a happy ending, but the end of Whiskey Sharp: Torn left me feeling disappointed, an emotion I rarely feel with a Lauren Dane book. I loved the first two books in this series. They were filled with drama, angst, difficult relationships, and tough decisions, but still managed to be funny, sexy, and entertaining. Torn is entertaining, funny, and hot, but doesn’t live up to the rest of the series, so it was a bit of a letdown for me.

    This was a cute second chance romance!

    I liked Cora and Beau! The chemistry was there and I loved the interactions between them. They knew each other before but haven't seen each other in almost two decades, so it was more of like a second chance romance which is one of my favorite tropes. They fell fast and were really cute together. They eased into a relationship and it was great to read about. I also liked how they time spent time with each other's friends and really tried to integrate into each other's lives. 

    Now let me tell you about things that I didn't like. I didn't like Cora's mother to be honest, the lady was downright rude and mean to Cora at times. I really didn't understand why no one told Cora LONG TIME AGO that she needed to get from under her mother. The way she treated her was horrible and I was so glad that Cora wanted to distance herself from her. However, it didn't seem like it was thoroughly resolved. Likewise with Beau. I also wanted more background on his history with the cult. It just didn't feel like anything was fixed or had an ending. 

    Overall it was good romance read but it lacked a little. Also, while this is part of a series, you can totally read it as a standalone.

    Weird as fuck and I had to make myself read it since I bought it. Definitely one of the bad dialogue books.
