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.
Well, this one went from zero to sixty in the first paragraph. No joke. I think this may be one of my favorite book openings of all time!
I am not usually a fan of May-December romances, but this one might just be the exception. I’m all for girl power and taking control of your life and if you want date a guy ten years younger, go for it! That’s pretty much what happened here with Whitney and Ryan. He’s her younger brother’s best friend and all that. He offers to fulfill her needs with a one night stand which leads to…dun dun dun…you guessed a surprise pregnancy! She’s in a bit of a shock since she thought she couldn’t conceive (evil ex alert). Once Ryan finds out, that one night stand? Yeah, he wants what’s his and he won’t take no for an answer. (Don’t worry. He’s been lusting after her since he was a teenager).
Honestly, this was pretty darn good. Ryan is a take charge, I-take-care-of-my-own kind of guy with a dirty mouth. Whitney has absolutely no filter when’s she drunk (and it is awesome), but she’s a little on the awkward side, but gains her footing as the book goes on. I love, love, loved the ending!
A great book. Laramie Briscoe keeps wowing me with her creative mind and sexy heroes!
When she’s not writing alpha males who seriously love their women, she loves spending time with friends, reading, and marathoning shows on her DVR. Married to her high school sweetheart, Laramie lives in Bowling Green, KY with her husband (the Travel Coordinator) and a sometimes crazy cat named Beau.
