    Description

    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.

    Preparing myself to be stoned

    I want to start by saying that I really wanted to love this book. Everyone I know that has read it has adored it, that leaves me to believe the issue is with me. This is totally my opinion and please don't anyone hate me.

    Kandi is a very talented and the book was very well written. Her character development was off the charts. I have a hard time remembering character names when there gets to be too many but Kandi made every single character memorable and I had such a great connection to all the characters.

    The reason why I am not rating this 5 stars is because I found the main characters completely immature and unrealistic. They ruined way too many lives, over and over, including their own and I just don't think anyone has the motivation to do that to themselves for over a decade. I was left frustrated, irritated and annoyed.

    That being said, I listened to the book straight through, I couldn't stop just wondering how this madness would end. I never once considered not finishing it.

    Lauren Sweet is not the narrator for me. When she is just telling the story, I think she's great. Easy voice to listen to and her tone is great. Then the narratives come in and her voice gets extremely whiny and high pitched and I just really don't care for it.

    Had major potential but bombed

    I really liked the idea of the story but for some reason the writing annoyed me. It just seemed to drag most of the time and I ended up skipping ahead.
    The narrator was so whiny and nasally when she voiced the characters, I had a hard time getting through it.
    I love the angst and conflicted love that had so much potential but unfortunately for me it missed the mark.

    Horrible Narrator - Read instead of listening

    I struggled to finish this book, and it had nothing to do with the story... The narration was absolutely horrid. Not only was the narrator's nasaly voice hard to bare, she often used a "valley-girl" like inflection which brought nothing to the story and was just plain annoying. She had almost no grasp on the tone the characters were using.

    The book itself was decent and at times slighty poetic. I wasn't a fan of the way the author eluded to what would happen next, but characters were likable. I probably would have enjoyed it more had I read it instead of listening.

    First book from Kandi Steiner, won't be the last!

    What made the experience of listening to A Love Letter to Whiskey the most enjoyable?

    The writing. The words flowed beautifully, very poetic writing!

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Whiskey. OK Jamie if you must. But he'll always be Whiskey to me!

    Have you listened to any of Lauren Sweet’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this was the first book with her narrating that I've listened to. I think she did a good job. Caught a couple of slip-ups. Like her calling the Character of Ethan, Nathen towards the beginning. So that kept the performance from being a 5 Star. But overall she did great at acting out the story and different characters!

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES, If I could of! It was very addicting!

    Any additional comments?

    This was my first Kandi Steiner book, will not be my last. I've already recommended it to several book friends that enjoy romance! She has a way with words, having some of the best quotes I've read in stories! Not forced, just beautiful!
    I read one of the other reviews saying that they think there are many fake reviews for this book. I can assure anyone reading this review of mine. It's not fake. I truly loved this story from beginning to end! I come across new to me authors all the time and this author can truly write! I highly recommend you checking this book out!

    Loved this book listened to it all in one day!

    needed something to get me through my day of work. and this did the job. couldn't stop listening, this book had so many ups and downs but in the end it was was worth it. I'm glad I picked this one. I love romance books but this one really kept me on my toes and I couldn't stop listening. sad that I finished it all in one day but I needed to know. it really got to me, being a whiskey girl myself. I will be looking for more from this author.

    Whoa! The emotions are real...

    I couldn't let go, I couldn't walk away. Heart racing moments, furious at the reality, & yet overall understanding... because I, too, have an addiction to whiskey. Perfectly aged, under tones that always draw me in, deliriously intoxicating, rough to the last drop, but it's an addiction that makes me feel.

    Unbelievably Good!

    It killed me- my heart, my hopes for Jamie and B, all of it! The book broke me emotionally and kept me teetering on the cusp of happiness but thinking I'd never make it there! Kandi Steiner has a wonderful ability to make the reader/listener oblivious to the world around them and become fully emerged in her characters! I'm not going to get over this book for a while-

    Beautifully Heartbreaking

    This story is going to bring you up, push you down, play with your emotions, and just maybe break your heart. It's not perfect, but that's what makes it perfect.
    Narration is great, and the story is even better.
    Whether you're reading or listening, this book is worth it.

    Echt schlecht

    es war mir eine Qual dieses Buch zu lesen. Blöd, ich weiß, aber sonst hätte ich es nicht rezensieren können ; ) aber das möchte ich gern...für die Gemeischaft.
    Also: Es war total nervtötend gelesen: ein einzig langer Seufzer. Der Plot ist eine On/Off-Beziehung: Protagonist und Protagonistin kommen ca 20-30 mal mehr oder weniger zusammen und trennen sich auch gleich wieder um dann, Monate oder Jahre später, aber gleich zu Beginn des Folgekapitels wieder zusammen zu kommen. Man weiß vor allem am Anfang überhaupt nicht, warum sie sich trennen. Später dann gibt es Erklärungsversuche, die ich aber nicht wirklich verstanden habe. Bin bin möglicherweise auch zu dumm für dieses Buch. Die Protagonisten sind eindimensional und uninteressant. Das Buch ist reich an unsagbar poetischen Metaphern: Menschen und Handlungen werden mit alkoholischen Getränken verglichen oder mit Gläsern oder Eiswürfeln oder Strohhalmen oder...rinse-repeat-rinse-repeat....

    A real roller coaster ride of emotions!

    5++++ All Worthy Stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
    This is probably the MASTERPIECE of all masterpieces from Kandi Steiner's novels. It's so compelling and consuming. OMG. There where so many situations where I need to pause and catch a breath or blow out a breath or need to take a deep breath! What a roller coaster ride of emtions. The characters are so intense and strong I was captivated all the way.
    Kandi Steiner write a real brilliant style of story telling using Whiskey literally and symbolically at the same time. Love. I have never read a novel so original in it's narrative style. Which only confirmed for me that Kandi Steiner is one of the real best writers in this generation. And I will always have and read her books like my few well chosen authers that are for me the greatest.
    The story revolves around mainly on B (Brax) and Jamie. (She prefers to call herself only as B instead of her name because there's a story of that which I don't want to spoil the whole thing.) Their life story and love which spanned for over a generation. And it wadn't a fairy take type if a love story. It's everything other than that. Heartache, pain, heartbreak, anger, hate....and beyond that a love that's so powerful that kept them addicted to each.
    The novel is on B's point of view talked about the addicting effects of whiskey. When you read this book, you will see and experience for yourself the brilliance of the author's writing. A real masterpiece of a novel. One of my great favorites.
