Publisher's Summary

A funny, sexy, and emotionally riveting stand-alone contemporary romance by New York Times best-selling author Melissa Foster. Running on Diesel is the perfect love story for those who enjoy fiercely loyal and insanely sexy alpha heroes, smart, sassy heroines, strong family bonds, bikers, babies, and more!

Desmond “Diesel” Black is a Nomad with the Dark Knights motorcycle club. He protects others with his life and always rides alone. Tracey Kline left the only family she had for a man who broke more than her spirit, leaving her untrusting and on her own. When a twist of fate reveals pieces of the other no one else sees, will they be able to help each other mend their past hurts and learn to trust the chemistry and connection that’s too strong to deny?

The Whiskeys are perfect beach reads with depth of story, strong family ties, and a wealth of emotions. Small-town love stories with happily ever afters guaranteed. The Dark Knights motorcycle club is not a typical MC book. These bad-boy bikers are tough, but they have hearts of gold...and they're not afraid to use them.

Diesel Black has stole my heart!😍💘❤

OMG this book was amazing from start to finish. Every page was burning up with Diesel and Tracy's love. All I can say is this story is Panty melting, toe curling and heartwarming that is a must read. The rough nomad will steal your heart.

Rough, Gruff, and Amazing!

Oh, Diesel. I've had a thing for this man if no words since we first met him. He had the quiet mystery about him that just made you want to know more, more, more. And this book cover!?? Holy hotness!

I loved how Traci calls him "Unleaded", I got the best laugh with that name because Diesel just doesn't feel like the type of gruff biker who does nicknames like that. She just knew how to get under his skin. Diesel is a protector, first and foremost, and we see it in everything he does. But he protects his heart the most. The way he took care of Traci after her altercation was sooooo good. He just held her. That right there is just, *sigh*. That's my man!

I really loved when the story moved on to Diesel sprinting away last minute to Colorado to seek answers. The Colorado characters are a whole new (well, we've recently met them here and there) bunch of characters that I absolutely fell in love with! I didn't actually see the story going in that direction and was pleasantly surprised!

But that ending?? Gaaah! My heart! I never thought I'd ever see that big, tough guy open his heart like that and promise forever to his girl. Never. Love it!!

I devoured this story solely in audio and the narrators did a fabulous job on both characters, but I really feel they outdid themselves on the secondary characters. The voices were phenomenal. You never questioned who was talking.

Loved it!!!

This is the first book in the series I tried. I really liked it. I’m a sucker for a grumpy, misunderstood guy!! Diesel is a very protective guy who since his mother died lived on the road, never staying one place too long. That’s until he’s asked to watch over Tracey who came out of a bad relationship. He’s extra protective and more grunts than using actual words. She works in the bar he’s working at. He scares off any guy who talks to her and she doesn’t like it. One night just to shut her up….. they kiss and wow, do the sparks fly!!! So many great moments. Only Tracey seems to understand Diesel like no one else. They’re both there for each other and help each other through some difficult things. I loved this story and now want to do more in this series.

Meh…not bad, not great

This just plodded along…never launched. I was disappointed, expected more witty interaction of MC’s. None of the relationship transitions transpired with enough justification, in my opinion. As hate to insta-love, wimpy girl to badass bitch, loan wolf to Mr. Forever, all these plots lines weakly developed and poorly supported. Hard to “buy in” on this one.

Melissa Foster knows how to write growly men with big hearts. Diesel is always watching Tracey, protecting her from afar while also scaring off potential dates. A series of events lead Diesel and Tracey to come together and acknowledge the chemistry between them. I loved this story and devoured it. I love Melissa Foster and all her interconnecting characters. Running on Diesel was a great addition to this series and I look forward to reading more of Melissa Foster.

I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsession and Pink Flamingo Productions. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Tracy and Diesel are a great pair

The Dark Knights is a grittier, edgier Melissa Foster series, but they all have the same heart, heat and love that all are Melissa Foster hallmarks. I found Diesel and Tracy's story fascinating from beginning to end. On the surface, Diesel is a gruff, standoffish loner that seems to be a total womanizer. But once you see past the superficial persona and find the real man, he is a passionate, loving, devoted and thoughtful man that doesn't realize what an amazing person he is. Throughout this whole novel, he helps Tracy find who she is, who she wants to be, and gives her the love, support and safe space that she needs to grow into her own. I loved how they loved and supported each other, and how they each were able to be the safe haven the other needed.

Narration by Savannah Peachwood and Jacob Morgan was amazing. They are both fantastic narrators that bring so much emotion and feeling to their work. True voice actors, not just readers.

Great audiobook

I have read quite a few books by Melissa Foster and listened to couple before this one. She's an excellent writer and the storyline held my attention. The characters are so easy to like. There were so many characters that I want to get to know better though. I really need to start at the beginning. So it's a good standalone that I'm certain would be great within the series. My heart broke for Diesel and loved how it ended.

Jacob Morgan and Savannah Peachwood are excellent narrators. They were spot on with the narration and brought the book to life. Such soothing voices.

Running On Diesel

Diesel and Tracy have appeared in previous books and I have been so looking forward to their tale.

Desmond ‘Diesel’ Black is a nomadic member of the Dark Knights and has been keeping a watchful eye on Tracy since she came to them from the women’s shelter a few years ago. Tracy left an abusive relationship and has started anew in Peaceful Harbor.

The chemistry between them is palpable and everyone can see it – in fact it is so much so that they say just to have a night to get it out of both their systems. Tracy isn’t like that and as it turns out neither is Diesel.

Both Diesel and Tracy have a past, Tracy hasn’t seen her mother since she left with her boyfriend and diesel has lost his mother to cancer. He manages to track her mother down and they reconnect but Diesel soon learns of information that relates to the father he never knew and it could blow his ideal of his mother right out of the water. Will it destroy his memories of the mother he knew or will it bring him closer and discover family right in front of him?

This was another great addition to the Dark Knights series. Diesel and Tracy are the perfect match for each other and I am so glad we got to finally get their HEA.

Diesel and Tracey!

Diesel is a man who never planned on staying anywhere for very long, but a promise has kept him in Peaceful Harbor for a couple years as he is determined to be there for Tracey even if it infuriates her. He has been content to stand on the sidelines while she heals from her past but keeping his distance is becoming more difficult with each passing day.

Tracey has overcome a devastating past and has created a new life for herself. Over the last few years she has worked to reclaim the woman she used to be and she doesn’t need the protection of an alpha male despite how attractive he is.

Diesel is determined to protect Tracey from everything and that includes himself however he has met his match when it comes to her feisty personality. Their interactions are humorous and hot as we watch them fight for the love they both deserve. The narrators were a perfect choice for the story as they brought out all the nuances of the character’s personalities and the wonderful relationship they shared. 🎧 Audiobook Obsession

Fill 'erup with Diesel!

Melissa Foster has won my heart with the broody man we know as Diesel. Diesel is a nomad, part of the Dark Knights but not a particular chapter. He has settled now for several years in Peaceful Harbor and it is partly due to the attraction he has for Tracey. Tracey works in the bar, and she is being protected by him. But she has that smothered feeling and isn't afraid to let him know it. There is something about him though that pulls her to him. This is an emotional and beautiful love story, with a man of few words and a woman who loves with her whole heart. Foster is a master at sucking me in and holding my heart throughout her stories and this one is no exception. The incredible feeling of family is evident and the secrets held could splinter them. From Oak Falls to Peaceful Harbor we visit old friends and find out just how strong the family ties are. And it isn't just blood! Those Dark Knights are a force, letting us be part of their family and let us feel exactly how love is supposed to be. This book has my heart.

Jacob Morgan and Savannah Peachwood always give their best to a performance and this is one especially captured my ears. Morgan gives Diesel that alpha protective silence, but keeps us knowing exactly what he is thinking. Emotionally driven, he is perfect for this role. Peachwood is strong willed, feisty and wonderful as Tracey. Adding that spunk gives us a fantastic feel for the banter these two have. The perfect cast for a wonderful listen.

So.. freaking.. good!!

Everything I read or listen to by Melissa Foster makes my heart happy! This book is. I different!

Diesel, a bounty hunter who tends bar for the Whiskeys, had stayed out for two years because Red asked him to look out for Tracy.

Tracy came to them after she left an abusive relationship. She’s been there for two years and feels stronger. She studies martial arts, but when she is attacked outside the bar, and Diesel saves her, she realizes there’s more to the growly man than she realized.

This book is about two different journeys that intersect at a point where both people need something…. Although they may not realize it. It is an great read and a fantastic listen. Savannah Peachwood and Jacob Morgan did so well with these characters! And they meshed so well!!!

Motorcycle Club Contemporary Romance

Running On Diesel by Melissa Foster is a contemporary romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Savannah Peachwood and Jacob Morgan. This is the ninth book in The Whiskeys: Dark Knights At Peaceful Harbor series and can be read as a standalone.

I absolutely love Melissa's books. They always pull me in and leave a smile on my face. I loved the relationship the bloomed between Diesel and Tracey. I really enjoyed getting both of their points of view throughout the book. It really brought the story to life.

Savannah and Jacob did an amazing job on the narration. They both really know how to bring a story to life. I look forward to listening to more of their work in the future.

I would highly recommend this book if you love contemporary romances.

absolutely wonderful

Is there anything better than starting the day listening to Savannah Peachwood and Jacob Morgan? Probably not, if you're listening to a Melissa Foster book. These two, with their voices, Savannah's smooth voice, Jacob's slightly raspy, deep voice, make this story come alive. Ah, and the story...

This book was a little grittier than some of Melissa Foster’s other books, showing that she has a real talent for showcasing both the good and the bad of human beings. I adore the Whiskeys and the Dark Knights; good men who aim to help others. Their protectiveness make me really love this biker club. In this book, Tracey was abused in her last relationship. Diesel is a gruff loner. Together, the sparks finally fly and it is amazing. He and the rest of the bikers protect her but even more so, they believe in helping these women protect themselves. I loved that aspect of the story. There is great chemistry, steam, love and plenty of swoons between the characters. This is still a very sweet story but I felt so bad for what both Tracey and Diesel had to deal with in their past. Overall, the great characters, including the fantastic supporting cast, many of whom we met before, made this story one that should not be missed.
