Book Review: A Love Letter to Whiskey by Kandi Steiner

It’s crazy how fast the buzz comes back after you’ve been sober for so long.

Whiskey stood there, on my doorstep, just like he had one year before. Except this time, there was no rain, no anger, no wedding invitation — it was just us.

It was just him — the old friend, the easy smile, the twisted solace wrapped in a glittering bottle.

It was just me — the alcoholic, pretending like I didn’t want to taste him, realizing too quickly that months of being clean didn’t make me crave him any less.

But we can’t start here.

No, to tell this story right, we need to go back. 

Back to the beginning.

Back to the very first drop.

This is my love letter to Whiskey. I only hope he reads it.

Have you ever read a book that made you so angry but you just couldn't put it down? Yeah, that's this book. I had SO MANY emotions while reading this book yet I was so addicted to this story and these characters that I couldn't stop reading. A roller coaster of emotions, you definitely need to be prepared for the feels before going into this book. 

Normally, here is where I leave a synopsis for the book, but this is a book that you are better off going into blind. I had no idea what this was about or what was going to happen before I read it. All I knew was that Sarah from Words With Sarah loved this book and told me I had to read it. So I did. And my heart was ripped out, stomped on, shredded, and shoved back into my body all because of two characters. 

The beginning of this book takes place when our characters are in high school, but this is definitely a new adult book with all of the heat, sexiness, and angst that comes with the new adult genre. SO MUCH ANGST. Normally I am not a fan of books with that much angst, but the angst is so understood and fleshed out that I was feeling the anger and regret and desire right along with the characters. 

Do you get that this book was emotional? Because you are going to want to tear this book apart, throw it across the room, pick it up again, and devour it some more. I became so attached to these characters and their story and literally felt anxiety of their lives. They were real people to me and they made real mistakes and had raw emotions, just like people do in everyday life. If you decide to read this book, just know what you're getting yourself into and make sure you're emotionally prepared to have your heart played with.
