    1. Jesse’s best friend Tasha has just been dumped and her motto is, to get over it, get under someone else.That’s just what she plans on doing when she drags Jesse into the nightclub.It’s a bit out-of-the-way, but better to do the nasty where no one finds out.Jesse immediately senses something isn’t right. Goosebumps stand up on her body. She wants to high-tail it out of there, but Tasha is having none of it and merrily trips up the stairs to the VIP room.It’s going to be a night to remem [...]

    2. Uh oh! Jesse knew they should not have gone into the bar.The vibes were bad and kept getting worse. She felt she should run, not walk to the nearest exit. But she didn't. 5 STARS – Would Buy It For Them (lol)Dark Whiskey grabbed me from the first page and swept me through to the last. The suspense kept me racing through the pages. Emma Mead’s writing is easy to read and flows smoothly. I can never figure out how an author can pack so much into a short story.I must confess, I almost liked Eli [...]

    3. Dark Whiskey by Emma Meade goes down in one smooth, satisfying gulp. I adore main character, Jesse. She just wants to kick back at home on a Saturday night "watch The X Factor and sip a glass or three of rose", but BFF, Tasha, insists on clubbing. This leads to immediate trouble. A writing instructor once told me short stories are harder to write than novels because there's room to play in a book whereas every sentence has to shine and move the story forward in a short work. Every word of Dark W [...]

Have I said that once before, haha? Going into this I knew this was going to be great. Emma can spin a tale with captivating details and page turner words. When the main gal, Jesse, got chills I got them too. Just how everything was all described I felt as if I were the one in her shoes and was in this horr [...]

    7. This is a very cool short read that lingers long after you've finished it. It's equal parts gritty, sensual and dark, thanks in part to the author's wonderful grasp of description and imagery.Jesse tags along with her friend Tasha who is looking for a good time with a hot guy after being dumped by her boyfriend. They end up visiting a nightclub with a VIP section that immediately reeks of "wrongness." Tasha is too looped to realize the danger, and Jesse can't put her finger on why the place (alo [...]

    8. A young girl named Jesse gets way more than she bargained for when she and a friend go out for the night. This is a hard review for me to write, as I fear I’ll be giving away too much of the story if I go in-depth with my thoughts. It’s a 22-page short story with an ending I enjoyed immensely, so it’s perfect for those times when you want to read, but don’t have time to get into a longer work. The lead character is great, and I love the way she deals with the things going on around her. [...]

    9. Ooh. I like it when short stories pack a lot of punch. And for all its length, this one pulls a whole lot of character and terror into it.Jesse allows herself to be drawn into something she knows is wrong because her best friend is determined to forget her woes and she wants to do it in style. For Jesse, something seems off about the club from the moment they enter. Yet she goes along with her BFF and ends up in the middle of something she can't comprehend.But this doesn't stop her from trying t [...]

    10. I have to admit, this is a fun story. It reminded me of the old Tales From the Crypt comics, which is always a win for me.Before I go on, I think it’s fair to say there isn’t a lot I can say that won’t give away any of the story.With that in mind, I enjoyed some of the tweaks to the mythos the author used while keeping the story and characters consistent. The only negative is I want more. I want to know what happens next. Aside from that, it was an awesome story.

    12. Read reviews at : ssbookfanaticsI've read two books by this talented author, one a full length novel, Under the Desert Moon, the other a book of short stories, The Awakening and Other stories, of which I loved both. You can read my reviews by clicking on the respective titles.I was asked to beta read Dark Whiskey and knowing Emma's work, I didn't hesitate. If there is one author who never needs much of anything done to her books, it's Emma Meade. To say it's a pleasure reading her work prior to [...]

    13. Into a world where vampires have become every woman's dream man enters Emma Meade's Dark Whiskey which changes that perception. In this intense read vampires return to the way Bram Stoker envisioned them.dark, deadly, and dangerous. They think themselves superior and see humans as food and entertainment. They are extremely sexy though and it's an erotically charged environment that two young women enter into looking for a night of fun.There's a sense of foreboding from the moment this story star [...]

    14. Tasha new goal was to avoid the Smithies, the Lough’s & the O' Brien's, anywhere the ex/new blonde bimbo might come in contact with her. They frequent the same bars in the small town of Bishop Grove Ireland. Tasha had been invited to the VIP room in an upscale nightclub by 1 of the handsome employee’s. Davis greeted Tasha & her BFF Jesse. Eli the owner welcomed them also. Davis & Jesse hooked up & Tasha & Eli hooked up also. The bartender Andrew kept the drinks flowing. V [...]

    15. This was a perfect little reading where the short story concept works very well. I was glad the female main character was neither a bulletproof heroine with bitchy attitude nor a whiny damsel in distress, but just your normal next-door kind of girl. This made it easy to sympathize with Jesse and share the uneasiness she feels in the bar. Though I think she should have tried harder to persuade her friend of leaving, I recognize the story would not have worked then as it did.While the ending does [...]

    16. Fast-paced and entertaining. Two girls walk into a bar, then horrible things happen. Apparently all those good looking patrons are not humans, and any mortal human who dares to enter this bar will either become their meal or a new vampire.The plot is predictable, but the story is still intriguing. I love how the author portrays the heroine here. Jesse's attempt to rescue her dying friend and her will to fight the vampire boss make her a likable character. I can relate to her pain and distress wh [...]

    17. As a general rule, I don't read vampire stories because the entire genre has been pretty much beat to death. On a whim, I tried this short one and was pleasantly surprised to find it was unusual and very well written. It is about two young women who are out for an evening of fun at an exclusive club who get a lot more than a night on the town. I must admit that this little story has made me rethink my general rule. Congratulations to the author for finding something truly different in an over pa [...]

    19. I normally don't read short stories, but Emma Meade's writing is so engaging I'm pulled into her stories regardless. Emma's good at bringing back the old, sexy, dangerous vampires, and writing about heroines who like to kick some major butt. Dark Whiskey was a fast read, and I felt as if I couldn't get enough when it was over. Must read for paranormal fans!

    20. A short but *cautionary* tale of what might happen if you disregard your intuition and follow a beautiful, dark and mysterious stranger to a VIP room upstairs. But who will be real loser in the end? We'll never know which leaves plenty of room for the imagination. A quick and satisfying read. 3.75 stars. Not bad for a freebie.

    23. This was an engaging short story. I tend to not read this genre, but from the first few sentences, I was engaged in the story. Left me wondering all the potential scenarios in the end.
