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.
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.
When I started reading Laramie Briscoe, she was a new author with only published one book. I have been a proud part of her fan base since then. When she announced a new series The Moonshine Task Force, I was so excited. Her writing and hot cops; it was basically a match made in heaven.
Renegade is the first book in this series. It is the story of Ryan “Renegade” Kepler and Whitney Trumbolt. Whitney is the older sister of Ryan’s best friend Trevor, and his long time crush. When Whitney makes Ryan proposition he can’t turn down, he has an unsuspected chance of making all his dreams come true.
This book took me a little by surprise. My only pet peeve when it comes to books is age difference, but I hadn’t picked up on that when I started this book. I’m very excited that I didn’t know because I would have missed out on a great book. Ryan and Whitney have a few bumps to overcome, but when they finally get together, it is so good. The insights into Ryan’s mind really shows who he is, and it is great to see him overcome the troubles from his past. That is what makes him a great character.
I will say that even though I really like Whitney, she was a little annoying at times. I can understand her baggage and why she behaved like she did, but at the same time. I didn’t feel like Ryan deserved the treatment she gave him in the beginning, which is why this book gets 4 stars. I’m really looking forward to read the next installment, the set up was one of the elements that really had me hooked.
