Menace by Laramie Briscoe

Synopsis

Mason “Menace” Harrison

“Single and ready to mingle……”

Those are the words above every picture of almost every female that strikes my interest on this dating app my son talked me into getting. After being a single dad for seventeen years, I’m ready to spread my wings, just not with most of the co-eds who keep hitting on me and calling me daddy.

Now that Caleb’s in his Senior year of high school, I feel like I can let go of the iron-clad control I’ve had on myself without his Mom in our lives. I’ve enjoyed raising him, love the relationship we have, and while he went off the rails for a bit last year, we’re closer than we’ve ever been. He’s got a full ride to the University of Alabama, and I’ve settled into my spot with the Moonshine Task Force.

But my son doesn’t warm my bed, he isn’t someone I can share my dreams with, and he’s not the person I want to grow old with by my side. I’m not sure who that is yet, but the smokin’ hot lady going by the name BeachBum83 definitely has every single bit of my interest.

“Looking for a good time, maybe more…..”

Those were the lamest words I ever typed in my life, but it was the best I had for the dating app my friend, Violet talked me into joining. I didn’t have any high hopes for myself. As a High School English teacher, I’m sick of pervy Dad’s hitting on me when they come in to discuss their child’s lack of motivation to read the classics and apply themselves.

Until the day Mason Harrison walks into my classroom. I had no idea Caleb’s Dad was the man I met off that dating app who showed me how flexible I really am in the back of his Jeep. Within minutes of the parent/teacher conference he proved the sparks weren’t one-time only when we christened my desk.

Mason and Caleb? They touch a part of my heart that no one’s ever touched before, and when a threat shows up, I prove just how tough I really am.

Review

Mason a single father who’s son is leaving for college and Karina a teacher end up being brought together courtesy of a dating app, straight away sparks fly between the pair and what follows is a story filled with copious amounts of drama, excitement plus there’s lots of hot, intense sexy moments and last but not least love.

The authors impeccable writing skills make this a thoroughly enjoyable book to read, the storyline just flowed along at an nice steady pace, it’s told from a dual point of view meaning we get to hear from each of the main protagonists perspectives.

This can be read as a stand-alone but having read the others in the series I can’t recommend that you read them enough.

Bait by Jade West

JWBaitBookCover6x9_MEDIUMA stranger online. Dark hair and even darker eyes that knew my dirty desires before I did.

I’ll run and he’ll chase.
Because I asked him for this.
I begged him for this.
Tonight, in the darkness, he’s the hunter.
And I’m the bait.

Butcher by Leann Ashers

butcher coverHe stalked me from the moment he saw me. He watched me day and night.

Butcher is what everyone calls crazy. They see all the tattoos and scars and to be honest, to most people he looks downright scary. He’s dangerous. He is after all the enforcer to the Devil Souls MC.

But to me? He’s just Butcher. I see him. I see who he really is. I see a man who will do anything for the people he cares about. I see the man who will protect and love me above everything else.

I am just as obsessed with him as he is me. I will die for him and he would kill for me.

What everyone doesn’t know is I have the same crazy inside of me…

Havoc by Laramie Briscoe

29542373 (1)When a marriage of convenience turns into the passion of a lifetime…

Holden “Havoc” Thompson

My job as the leader of the Moonshine Task Force is my life. I eat, breathe, and sleep it. The men under my command mean the world to me. Knowing they count on my guidance has kept my demons at bay for longer than I care to admit.

The control I have over myself is an iron fist that sometimes threatens to squeeze the life out of me. What I want more than anything is to live again – let go of the hurt smothering every bit of light I have in this darkness.

I don’t expect it to come in the form of a Moonshiner’s daughter needing my protection.

Leighton Strather

My whole life has been defined by who my family is. In the state of Alabama, we’re number one with a target on our backs. The danger and prestige isn’t for me. I don’t care about the money, and I care too much about the families we’ve ruined.

My brother and my dad are proud of it. They wear their arrest records like a badge of honor. Me? I want as far away from the lifestyle as I can get.

It’s the only reason I ask Holden to marry me. At least that’s what I tell myself.

I never expect his whispered yes to cause such upheaval in my life. Even though I resist, I learn some havoc is good – and this one? It’s a whirlwind of lust, hope, and love and all I can do is let it sweep me away.

REVIEW: Havoc by Laramie Briscoe

Sexual tension and passion…

This is an engaging marriage of convenience romance …..…I loved the premise of this story, although perhaps a little unlikely….Holden AKA Havoc is the boss of the Moonshine Taskforce he is a man who hides his inner demons by keeping totally in control until Leighton enters his world in need of protection ….

Holden and Leighton narrate the story…They are both strong characters and well matched but frustratingly at times there is a lot of reluctance on both sides to acknowledge their feelings because of their doubts regarding the appropriateness of their relationship..he is a fair bit older than her and she is the daughter of a Taskforce target criminal …I do love series where key characters from earlier installments have a part to play in future books and this is one such series… I hate to day goodbye to characters so this is a way of checking up on how they are progressing…all the characters are well developed and believable and in particular the interactions of the individuals, who comprise the Moonshine Taskforce, and their significant others are full of love , fun and loyalty……

This is another great addition to the Moonshine Taskforce series full of drama, but not too much, sexual tension, but not too much and a wonderful passionate love story…. I look forward to the next book….This book was reviewed for Summer’s Eve Reads

~Sheena (4/5)

This is the third book in the Moonshine Task Force series and it’s another thoroughly enjoyable read by Laramie Briscoe.

An ardent love story filled with sexual tension and full of drama but written in a believable way no over the top nonsense. The two main protagonists Holden and Leighton are in a marriage of convenience but there’s so much more going on between them with regards to their feelings towards each other that they both need to address, this is the story of how their relationship progresses.

I felt that the story started out rather slowly but for me it was exactly what was needed, it felt like I was present during the build up of the protagonists relationship and what may have started as a marriage of convenience turned into something deep and profound.

I can’t wait to see what’s in-store for us next….

Genre: contemporary romance

When you fall in love with the most unexpected person, at the most unexpected time…… 

Ryan “Renegade” Kepler

I’m the type of man who knows what I want. I make up my mind and stay in my lane, never veering off the course I set for myself. 

Going into the military? Did it. Youngest member of the Moonshine Task Force? 

That’s me. Get my best friend’s older sister in bed? It was my pleasure. 

Age means nothing to me. I’ve seen and done things men twice my age never will. What I want more than anything is someone to share my life with and that person is my best friend’s older sister, Whitney. 

Whitney Trumbolt 

Ryan is ten years my junior, but damn, being a cougar never felt as good as it did the night we spent together. Now I’m struggling with wanting things to either go back to the way they were or spend every night in his arms.

Make my wedding planning company the best in the south? Did it. Ignore the way my body trembles when I see Ryan? Epic fail. Freak out when I see a positive pregnancy test staring back at me? Complete with mascara running down my face and clutching my pearls. 

Looks like things won’t go back to the way they were. There’s a man in my life that doesn’t take no for an answer. He’s the one who makes my blood run hot, cheeks turn red, and heart beat wildly within my chest. His name is Renegade.

Review by Sheena
Rating: 4/5

This book was reviewed for Summer’s Eve Reads… this is a friends to lovers romance with a touch of taboo….. a sweet and humorous romantic story with, as, they say in the movies, elements of ‘mild peril’..

This new, to me, author knows how to write an engaging and sexy romance full of comedy, gorgeous guys and smart women..written from the dual point of view of the two main characters I fell in love with Whitney and Renegade they are so great together their relationship is hot and intense but also sweet and full of humour….. Sometimes I get frustrated with a book where the couple spends a lot of the plot failing to recognise the significance of their feelings for each other but in this case the circumstances made the angst appropriate and the relationship most definitely needed time to evolve and develop……the protagonists are surrounded by a group of other wonderful and credible characters…in particular the group of men who work together in the Moonshine Taskforce and add another layer of camaraderie and laughter…

I have been reading a lot of darker stories recently and this was a delightful breath of fresh air… A funny, and charming love story…the Moonshine Taskforce series is now on my TBR list….I can’t wait to read about Renegade’s other brothers at arms and their personal happy ever after journeys……
