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.

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.

broody biker finds his home

Tracy escaped an abusive relationship and ended up in Peaceful Harbor. She works at the bar with Diesel of the Dark Knights.
Diesel is a restless, brooding soul and stays to himself most of the time. He always ready to head for the open road. Sometimes he will go to visit The Whiskeys in Colorado at the Redemption Ranch.
Tracy and Diesel both have family issues. Diesel mom passed away without telling him who his father was. He always felt empty, lost. Even though the Whiskeys embraced him, it really never felt like home.
Tracey was always afraid to go home to her mom. Tracey felt guilty and ashamed that she didnt listen to her mother about her abusive boyfriend. Tracy tried to contact her mom, but she moved away and changed her phone number. She felt lost and abandoned.
Tracey and Diesel connection is like a time bomb, when finally they get together its explosive, hot and steamy.
Melissa Foster stories are emotional, all about family, love and forgiveness.
Savannah Peachwood and Jacob Morgan are wonderful narrators.
They bring depth to each character. I can feel each moment of emotion, anguish, anger, torment, throughout the story.

High in heat!!

Running on Diesel had me by the throat from the start. Tracy is a woman finding her own way. She's lived her life by other people's terms and she's on a quest of self discovery.  She's a strong woman with a bit of fire going on. Diesel, oh Diesal, he has one thing on his mind... sorry, one person on his mind... Tracy. He can't see past this woman. Unfortunately,  he doesn't do women past using them physically. He's got a damaged past and issues all around. Diesel finds his purpose when he saves her one night. Tracy and Diesel find something in each other. What happens when it's time to walk away?


The writing was amazing. The heat level was so intense... these two could have combusted from the mix of Diesel and the fire in Tracy. They had a need for each other that couldn't be fulfilled. Melissa Foster brings us back to characters we've all come to love and enjoy their previous stories.  The narration by Jacob Morgan and Savannah Peachwood was amazing. Morgan brings this big ol' man to life with this deep voice and strong narrative. Peachwood gives Tracy that much needed attitude with her fun and flirty side. Loved it!

Running on Diesel

Running on Diesel (The Whiskeys: Dark Knights at Peaceful Harbor 9) ... 5 Maple Leafs

A fun and emotional journey about opening up and finding where you belong.

"It's you, baby. You make everything better, and you make me want to be part of something bigger. Something special."

Diesel is in love with the open road and never stays in one place for long. Tracey is still trying to pull her life back up after leaving an abusive relationship. Diesel has been captivated by Tracey since the day he saw her and feels protective over her. After years of tension between them, they finally give in to each other and begin their journey to healing.

The Whiskeys are the fiercest and most loyal group you will ever meet. I have been waiting for Diesel's book since we first met him and it did not disappoint. Diesel and Tracey have had so much tension between them that when they came together it was burning hot. I loved how Tracey was able to get grumpy Diesel to open up and show his softer side. I can not wait for more of the Whiskey family.

Audio ... Jacob Morgan and Savannah Peachwood did an amazing job at bringing Diesel, Tracey, and their story to life. They both gave the book a totally different feel and perspective than I experienced while reading the book.

Learning to love

Diesel has been on the open road for years, never settling down but when his extended family needs him he has stayed home and looked out for them and the sweet young girl that came to them broken. He won't let anything happen to Tracey, not even letting himself get too close to hurt her.

Tracey escaped an abusive situation and didn't feel like she could go home to her family. She landed with the Whiskeys and now she has a new family to love and love her. She has mended both physically and emotionally but the big growly bear of a man named Diesel Black is pushing her buttons. She goes from wanted to pummel him to wanting to ride him. How can she get past those feelings without loosing her heart along the way?

Jacob Morgan and Savannah Peachwood are so good narrating this book. Loved their voices and listening to both of them.

I love Melissa Foster's books. They show us not to judge someone by their looks. One would think the tough men of the Dark Knights MC are rough and not someone you would want in your life but that is the farthest thing from the truth. They are good guys doing great things for their community and protecting those they love with all they have. They all have hearts as big as they are and love with all they have and Diesel is no different. Loved the book and love the series and highly recommend it.

Running on Diesel

Loved this book! Melissa Foster is a new author to me. I was unsure about starting this book being the ninth in the series eventhough it says it is a standalone. I had no problems falling in love with these two characters. Tracey grew up with a single mom after her dad went to prison for abuse. She had also escaped an abusive ex too. So she was very weary of men. Diesel is park of the Dark Knights MC in the town Tracey ended up in. He has been working at the bar with her for the last few years. He was asked to watch over her by The Whiskeys. When Diesel finally opened up and truly allowed himself to love Tracey back was so amazing! Savannah Peachwood and Jacob Morgan are both phenomenal narrating together in this book!

Sweet and Sexy MC Romance!

This is the ninth book in The Whiskeys: Dark Knights at Peaceful Harbor Series, a MC Romance. Diesel and Tracey's story is sweet, sexy, and heartwarming, filled with drama. Diesel is a Nomad with the Dark Knights MC. He is handsome, and protective. Tracy is strong, and smart. The supporting characters are great, and I loved the strong family ties. Savannah Peachwood and Jacob Morgan did a fantastic job with the narration. I enjoyed it. #AudiobookObsession

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.
