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
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
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.
Havoc, or Holden as he’s christened, is a thirty-six year old leader in the Moonshine Task Force as well as an officer for his local police department. He has always been fascinated by Leighton, even though she is the daughter and granddaughter of illegal moonshine distillers and sellers. He offers her a chance to escape that world but what the future holds is still uncertain.
Holden is a hot alpha male who I’d gladly like to meet in real life, yummo! He has high morals and a code of ethics he lives by that enables him to be the leader he is at work and with friends.
Leighton has such a big heart, it’s a wonder she turned out as well…ah I love fiction! However, it does mimic real life and there are some awful ‘real life’ moments that really make you sit up and take notice in this tale. You can’t help but become invested in the emotions throughout the book.
This fast paced story is super easy to read but my only complaint is I finished it! Bring on book 4!
Another great series by this author, going on this book!
This really is a sweet romance but the elements of ‘real life’ are there in abundance which makes it easy to relate to as a reader.
Whitney is a thirty-five-year-old woman who is now divorced and out of a depressing marriage. She is more than comfortable with Renegade, her younger brother’s best friend when she hooks up with him for a night and they both give in to their desires.
Really I can’t say too much else or I’ll give it away! 😉 The book is believable because there is no magic wand to make everything alright, the characters have everyday jobs and do everyday things. They occasionally surprise you with a little tidbit about their past and it endears you even more to them.
This is a smooth flowing story that is easy to read. The emotions the characters feel you, the reader, experience too. I enjoyed the humour balancing things out just as much as the hot, passionate bedroom scenes too.
If you are looking for a love story that makes you feel fabulous, then this is it!
