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.
4.5 Star Review by Ashley
Oh my heart! I haven't read a book that made my chest ache this much in I can't even tell you how long. And it wasn't the kind of heartache that made me cry, though there were a few times I wanted to, it was the kind that made me want to reach out and hug somebody. A Love Letter to Whiskey is the first book of Kandi Steiner's that I've had the pleasure to enjoy but it certainly won't be the last.
I liked how messed up both Brecks and Jamie were. I mean these two kids had a world of hurt on their shoulders. Now, even though a lot of the strife and turmoil these two suffered came as consequences of their own actions putting it there it didn't make me feel for them any less.
Prepare to have your hopes built up and smashed. Prepare to want to throw something. Repeatedly. But also be prepared to fall in love with these wonderfully flawed characters who sacrificed so much in the name of love. Jamie and B's story wasn't pretty, but it was theirs and that was where the magic in these pages laid.
About the Author
Kandi Steiner is a Creative Writing and Advertising/Public Relations graduate from the University of Central Florida living in Tampa with her husband. Kandi works full time as a social media specialist, but also works part time as a Zumba fitness instructor and blackjack dealer.
Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies).
When Kandi isn’t working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.
