It's been a while since Adriane Leigh has put out a new book, but I'm glad she's back! I love her words. Whiskey Girl is a little different than some of her books. It's less steamy, and more everything else. This book is a beautiful, emotional, and angst-filled second chance romance that I adored.

Fallon Gentry met Augusta Belle when she was just a teenager. These two met in a way that linked them together forever. The circumstances of their lives/relationship weren't ideal, but t

I’d never known pain to exist outside of my body, but with Augusta Belle walking around in the world, it felt like an exposed nerve, my heart always on guard and vulnerable, ready to defend my love for her at any possible second.





Before the story starts off, Adriane Leigh prefaces it by stating that this is not like her erotica books that are jam-packed with steamy scenes. This is an angsty and heartbreaking story of two people whose love fac

“Never thought I’d find home again.”

There is just something about a book with the word whiskey in the title that does something for me. And in all honesty, that's the only reason I chose to read this book. I'm just thrilled that it was so good!

Fallon and Augusta have a past, a past that was over ten years ago and we get to know them in flashbacks. It's not my favorite way to get to know characters but I think it worked in this case.

I enjoyed getting to know their younger selves and ho

“I couldn’t see a single face behind the glaring stage lights, but still, some part of me pretended she could be out there, that I was singing to her. That she would hear her song and find her way back to me.”

It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside when I find myself still thinking about a book a whole week after first finishing it, and the more I think about this story, the more beauty I keep finding in every single memory of it. From its arresting opening line to the many jaw-dr

Oh my goodness. I'm not really sure where to begin with my review. I guess I should say this is the first book I've read in WEEKS. I've been in a serious slump but this book pulled me right out and I finished it. I read it from cover to cover and my heart now currently resides with Fallon & Augusta Belle.

The story started nice and sweet, halfway through I didn't care what happened next. The way the plot-twist was resolved was convenient and predictable.
I liked Fallon, and then I didn't, the female lead was just there, she didn't live up to my expectations, considering the title of the book is about her, and all the great things Fallon though about her.

Despite the above, I get why readers might like it, it just wasn't for me. (view spoiler) second

4.5 STARS!

Whiskey Girl by Adriane Leigh was my first read by this author and such a beautiful love story it was. A love story brimming with hurtful pasts, regrets, heartbreak, and second chances. A love story that brings Fallon Gentry and Augusta Belle Benson together. They meet one fated, sunny day on a bridge. Fallon saved her from jumping off. But really they saved each other and from that moment on they were glued together. Due to circumstances beyond their control, Fallon and Augusta are se

Whiskey Girl was a stand-alone by Adriane Leigh.

I couldn’t really tell by the blurb what it was going to be about - maybe a second chance? And once into the first few chapters, I still couldn’t tell. But I could tell that it would be emotional, and I was right. It evoked sadness, anger and misery until eventually hope wound its way in as well.

Augusta Belle Branson and Fallon Gentry met when Augusta was on top of Whiskey bridge about to jump. Nothing really was as it seemed through most of the b

So that emotional tsunami happened! Whiskey Girl is like if Kyland by Mia Sheridan & The Silent Waters by Brittainey C. Cherry came together and had a baby. That baby is Whiskey Girl. If you haven’t read either of those books then that is meaningless, but if you have, that should tell you a whole lot about what goes on between these pages!

Fallon and Augusta have history. I’m not going to detail it because that history you should read blind. To say it’s tragic is an understatement. You know those

Whiskey Girl is a really great read. Fallon and Augusta have a crazy past. They loved each other then Augusta left without a word to Fallon. Augusta is back and has found Fallon. Fallon is not very happy to see her at first. I kind of felt Fallon was really harsh to Augusta when she came back. She is strong and persistent and even though Fallon is jerky she doesn't back down. This one is a slow burn read that had me hooked from the beginning. Chapter after chapter we get more info on what happen ...more

Whiskey Girl is a beautiful yet emotional 2nd chance at love romance. It’s about a country singer/songwriter and his muse/ soul mate. They were young lovers who thought it would be them against the world yet that wasn’t the case. Fallon Gentry came from the wrong side of the tracks and barely had a dime to his name but he loved his Augusta Belle. It seemed her family didn’t want her with him yet they didn’t care- it seemed their futures looked bright and they had love on their side. Tragically, ...more

Whiskey Girl is like a slow sensual song, you sway along with the words and end with a happy contented sigh.

I loved Fallon with his southern drawl and melting words and Augusta Belle with her sassy attitude. I loved how Fallon used her full name, wrote her into his songs when she wasn't in his life and I could feel the love and adoration in all his words each time he spoke to Augusta Belle.

Whiskey Girl is a second chance romance and begins with Fallon on the road, living from his truck, a man

Can you imagine what it would feel like if one day you woke up only to find that the person who you love most in your life, your reason for breathing, vanished? No note, no text, nothing.

Fast forward ten years ... Once a famous country-western singer, Fallon Gentry has spent the past decade traveling around and playing his music in dive bars while drinking himself into oblivion night after night. I wondered if he was running from the ghosts of his past or searching for them instead ... unless th

Wow! This book took me on such a ride! From start to finish I was hooked and could hardly stop reading. The story of Fallon and Augusta is full of so much emotion and heartbreak. These two characters had me on the edge of my seat as I waited to find out the secrets they were hiding.

I loved how this story was written from dual points of view and also how it went back in time to show me important moments between the two of them. I felt that this really helped me get a feel for both characters in

Whiskey Girl was a wonderful second chance romance about a country singer and songwriter and his muse and soul mate that was tearing at my heart strings. It was touching and very sad at times but what kept me going was the hope that these characters are going to find their way back to each other again. Fallon and Augusta Belle didn't have it easy in life. They had each gone through many hardships and have been brought to their knees by fate too many times to count.

Wow, this book was such a wild ride! And I absolutely loved it. From the first moment I saw the cover and read the blurb I was intrigued with Whiskey Girl. I had no idea how much affected I will be by the story. Adriane Leigh skillfully created a touching story of two people that met by chance and saved each other, until the unexpected happend that tore them apart, leaving millions of questions between them unanswered.

Lyrical and poetic, Adriane Leigh’s writing is a joy to the senses and smooth as Tennessee whiskey. The story is a heart piercing journey for two very broken spirits. But darkness doesn't overshadow the good times filled with plenty of sassy wit, fearlessness and extraordinary moments shared between Augusta Belle and Fallon, as well. And, of course, an off-the-charts love story.

Whiskey Girl is an amazing second chance romance and well-written. I loved that it was Augusta Belle who takes the leap

**I got an ARC to review from writer, my opinion however is my own.**

As promised my review of Whiskey Girl.

Where do I even start? First off all that Adriane is an amazing person with a gift for writing. Every book of her I read so far I liked. Some more then others, but they never let me down.

I knew that this story was different, and that she put heart and soul into this book. What I loved the most? Is that you can see how much she has grown as a writer, person and amazing human being.

Fallon Gentry is a country singer, a Nashville star who's turned his back on everything to play in honky tonk bars and drink whisky, waiting and hoping to once again see Augusta Belle Branson. Augusta is the girl who ensnared his heart from when she was in her teens but then she leaves him, lost and alone.

The story goes between two time frames, the present and the past, which fills in the missing history between the two lead characters. Both are given the opportunity to share their points of vie

I love small town romance. Young lover growing up together, make plans of forever then something happens and they drift apart.
When the love of his life walks back in after disappearing with no word he’s not exactly happy. Where has she been all this time. He’s frustrated with her
because she is not forthcoming with this information. I do like the fact that you want to keep reading to find out the whys. When you do eventually find out, it’s very sad something she couldn’t control. Just when things

It's been a hot minute since I've read this author. I was happy to find out that I was missing out on a great read! Whiskey Girl is a story of second chance love with some coming of age heartache told through flash back. If you are looking for a feel good story, this one takes a long time to get there. If you are looking for the result of broken hearts and broken promises over 10 years of pain. Broken souls who at one time were so interconnected finding away back to their home, then Whiskey Girl ...more

I'm not sure if this was like a book of a previous character in another book, but I felt so lost in this book.

The writing was fine, the characters were fine, but I felt like I was missing an essential piece of information.

Augusta had been out of Fallon's life for 10 years but when she reappeared he did not put up much of a fuss and let her back in.

The story consisted of them traveling and her giving him bits and pieces of information until he finally knew the whole truth.

And then it ended all
