Honey Whiskey is not a standalone book; it is the second book in the Bastards series. In order to fully understand the characters and storyline, without feeling confused, you must read the first book about Matty and Jo, Always Been Mine.

The Bastards live in a world that most don’t understand. We follow our own rules, only accountable to each other, the innocents we protec

I cannot wait! Hurry Ms. Adams. HURRY!!

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I should start by saying that I fell in LOVE with Matty in ABM and I've been telling everyone I know to read the book simply so they could understand why. I have emailed Carina many times asking when Honey Whiskey was coming because I needed my Matty fix. So, when the book was done she offered me the chance to read it and I jumped.

That being said, I was extremely surprised by this book

*****

Wow!! I am SO impressed!! This is the second book by Carina Adams and the second in the Bastards' MC series and it shows such incredible improvement and growth.

The background story of The Bastards MC series was a very intriguing one right from the beginning, and Matty and Jo's story formed a beautiful introduction to this group of militant misfits with giant soft spots. However, in book one Matty and Jo never got to finish telling

This was a good read for me. I really liked it. It's a friends to lovers relationship and one that takes place over a few years and two marriages to other people. The hero Mattie has been living a double life but has been afraid for Jo to find out what he really does or why he does it. Once they do become a couple it's on again off again until Jo is tired of running and Mattie is tired
of keeping the truth from her. But things get really complicated once they decide to stay together, Jo has to pr

Honey Whiskey is a continuation of Joes and Matty's story from Always Been Mine. In this book we learn a lot more about the Bastard's and how they work. We also see the difficulties that come with being with one of them. Matty and Joes story is a hard one, but shows the power of unconditional love. This book is very different from Always Been Mine. There is some difficult subject matter, but Carina Adams handles it superbly. This is a very well written book that I will recommend to my fellow rea ...more

Review by Tanya.

This story revolves around Josephine Walker (also known as Jo or Joes), Matthew Murphy (also known as Matt, Matty and Mateo) and the Bastards MC. I first met Joes and Matty in Carina’s first novel,
Always Been Mine, which gives you the background of Joes’ and Matty’s relationship.

Although Honey Whiskey can be read as a standalone, I recommend reading Always Been Mine first, especially if you are like me and like to get as much background on the characters as you can.

I love the growth from book one. I was able to receive an ARC and I really enjoyed the story. However, the Boston accent written in was extremely distracting. I did love the characters and the suspense. I feel like this is more of Matty's story and I enjoyed his POV. I sometimes wanted to slap Jo but it added to the angst of the story. There was some angst but more character development and suspense drama as she built the world of the bastards. I liked how Jo was so new to the MC world and showe ...more

Absolutely loved this book! LOVED learning more about the bastards and their club! Joes is now my role model so smart and selfless! And the suspense kept me on the edge of my seat! I highly recommend this book if you loved ABM as much as me! I am so excited to read about Rocker!

Review originally posted at Ramblings From This Chick

Honey Whiskey is the second book in the Bastards MC series by Carina Adams, and is the continuing story of Jo and Matty. I would definitely recommend that you read the first book Always Been Mine before you read Honey Whiskey so that you can get the full back story on the characters and see everything that has happened in their past. I think that both books are worth the read and that you will not want to miss out on any part of what happens f

I absolutely LOVED Honey Whiskey the second book in the Bastards MC series . In Always Been Mine we met Matty, Will, Joes (Josephine), and The Bastards MC.

Honey Whiskey picks up where Always Been Mine leaves off. Honey Whiskey is the second book in the series. I recommend reading Always Been Mine first. Its helps you to better understand Matty and Joes story.

Matty stole my heart in Always Been Mine. Then I feel madly in love with him in Honey Whiskey. My heart ached for hi

All I can say is A-frickin-MAZING!!!!! I loved Always Been Mine, but Honey Whiskey.... SOOOOO much better! I love Matty and Joes even more now!!!! And the Bastards, especially Rocker, are my new fave MC group!!!! They are AWESOME! I have a new respect for Will in this book. I couldn't stand him in the first book and frequently pictured him getting hit by a semi, but in this one, well let's just say I'm glad nothing disastrous happened to him in ABM. He's redeemed himself in my eyes. And I must a ...more

Okay, after reading book 1 you have to read book 2! Oh my Matty! I want you! *Swoon* This is a man that you can't help but fall in love with. This is Matt's book, yes it is about more, but we get the real Matt in this one! I thought I loved him before, WOW. Now I can't get the man out of my head! What a story and such a great one after the ending in Always Been Mine!

I had the honor of receiving an ARC of Honey Whiskey in exchange for an honest review. Honey Whiskey is the continuation of Matty and Joes' story, and Carina does not disappoint. I was pulled in and captivated right from the very beginning. There are many twists and turns, and it was great to learn more about what makes the Bastards MC tick. I don't want to go into any details, because I hate when people leave spoilers, but this is a must-read! And, as usual, Joes and Matty are scorching hot. I ...more

This was good. A Few times I found it hard to follow because there was so much going on. There is a whole lot of crazy going on here. But I loved it anyway. Can't wait to read Rockers book. Thought it said winter 2015, where is it? It's spring!!!
Characters are great. Dialogue was interesting. The story line kept me intrigued. There was always something going on, right up until the very end

This is second book to Always been mine. I would recommend to read Always been mine first to understand the story line.

I still really love Matt and Joesphine, they grew more on me throughout this book.

I couldn't help feel for all the characters in this story. We meet more of the Bastards MC, and I loved how we learnt more about everyone going through this book.

I really loved this series.

I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen with Matty and Joes and this book did not disappoint at all. I was happy and sad, scared, worried, furious as they took the journey towards their happily ever after. I sure hope we get more Bastards MC in the future

The Bastards MC is much more than a motorcycle club. They are a family who protect anything they hold dear. I found this book unlike any MC book and I would classify it as more of a love story between Matty and Jo. The story is just so unique. After reading Always Been Mine I was itching for so much more between Matty and Jo. I wasn't disappointed in the least. If possible I fell more in love with them. I truly wanted these two to have the happiest ever after possible. This book opened up my eye ...more

This book follows on from Always Been Mine, which you really have to read to get into the mind-set of Jo and Matt’s characters.

All the questions I had at the end of book one, were answered in this book.

I really felt both Matt and Jo grew in this book. Obviously, Jo has left her husband and is in a relationship with Matt. She knows the real Matt, the Matt he has tried to keep hidden from most people because people were always out for what they could get from him. Not Jo. She loved him for him, an

Honey Whiskey is unlike anything I have ever read before. I won’t lie. The cover enticed me to read the synopsis. Anything with a man on a bike and the words MC has me intrigued, but once I read the description of the book and then Always Been Mine (Book One), which if you haven’t read you REALLY REALLY REALLY should, I knew I needed to read them.

If you haven't read the first book Always Been Mine you will need to read it first, this is the sequel to Jo and Matty's story.

Jo and Matty fight each other on everything. Matty wants to keep Jo safe and Jo wants Matty to understand that she can take care of herself.

Matty has a past that he isn't proud of but one that he wouldn't change either. He and his MC club that Bastards are what has kept him going over the years. But if Jo finds out his past will she run and never look back. Matty doesn't
