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.
|This is the first book in the Moonshine Task Force series and what a hot cougar read it turned out to be!|
Ryan Kepler (Renegade) has had the hots for his best friend’s older sister, Whitney, since he was a teenager. However his teenage crush morphed into something so much more so imagine his shock and sheer joy when a night at a bar she asks him to give her a hot sex fest of a night. Pew, Pew, Pew!
Whitney Trumbolt has had a world of hurt thrust on her and now she won’t take that chance anymore. Although she is happy building up her wedding planning business, she realises she still needs that connection with a man, even for one night. When she spots her brother’s best friend after sinking a few shots, she takes a leap into the unknown by not conforming to her usual behaviours and asks Ryan to show her a good time for the night!
These two were smoking hot together and I loved the hot younger guy and older woman scenario. But this was so much more that a steamy cougar read, the actual depth and affection that built between them was so swoon worthy, it gave me the happy feels. When an unexpected event occurs that brings them closer together, then Whitney starts to see Ryan as so much more than the decade younger guy and her brother’s best friend. This man could be her ‘one’
Fabulous start to this new series and I liked that the backstory was a little bit different than the norm (I had never heard about moonshine raids before) so it gave the storyline that extra edge. I really enjoyed this and can’t wait to read the rest of the books in the series. Five stars.
