Jennifer's Review:

Want some more MTF? This book is for you. Ransom is the first book in the next generation of Moonshine Taskforce books. If you have read the original series, you will be happy to know that yes you get updates on all the other characters we have fallen in love with. This story is heartwarming, but also has action. If you like this author, then you will love this book.

This story follows the children of two of the original couples. They each have grown up with each other which can go one of two ways. Either they will feel like family or eventually a spark will light. This book shows you which one that is. What I like about the plot of this book is how realistic it is. I could totally see this happening in the real world.

The characters of this story are dynamic. Stella is such a strong character, which I would expect considering who her mom is. If you liked Whitney, then you will love Stella. She is every bit of her mother mixed in with the best bits of her father. Then you have Ransom. He is a hunk. Not only that, but he is brave and kind. Everything that you need in a man. Add in his protective nature and alpha attitude and you have yourself the perfect man.

The heat in this book is boiling hot. These two characters have chemistry, but it is not like most. Their chemistry grows from a chance encounter. Not everyone has chemistry from the moment they meet. Sometimes it grows from a small seed. The heat in this book is perfect in my opinion.

The writing style of this book is good. I liked the plot. The pace of the book is steady. I really liked the dual point of views. I mean add in Rambo, the K-9 counterpart, and I mean you really can’t go wrong. Who doesn’t love a hot cop and his adorable little dog. I cannot wait to see where this goes next.

In conclusion, I really enjoyed this series. While the characters from the original series are very much a part of this book, you could easily pick up this book and start this series fresh and not feel like you missed out. This is the next generation after all. While they are their parents, they also have their own stories to live.

Erin's Review:

It was a joy to read another Laramie Briscoe novel! As one of my favorite authors, it's always fun to read her newest fiction. This book is the first in a new series, but the characters have been introduced to us in the Moonshine Task Force series. Ransom and Stella give us a wild ride on their love adventure, having known each other their whole lives.

Childhood friends that seem to be heading to a more romantic future, Ransom and Stella are both children of Moonshine Task Force law enforcement officers. While we knew both of them as children in MTF books, they are now adults. I enjoyed seeing the adult kids and how the kids of law enforcement officers grow up. Throughout the book we get to see characters we grew to love in the MTF series, and their amazing and loving relationships.

Ransom Thompson, son of the leader of the MTF ( Havoc). Now a member himself, this hunky man is making a name for himself as the only K-9 handler for the unit. Rambo his amazing canine partner, and a huge fan of Stella. Ransom has been eyeing Stella for a long time, just waiting for the time to be right and for her to see him the same way. Stella is the only daughter of another MTF task force member (Renegade). She's strong, quick witted and quick thinking and is seeing Ransom in a whole new light. When their lives collide, the sparks fly. They have a fantastic story arc, as their paths cross and intersect and line up; they both grow and work together facing challenges.

Honestly, how could the heat and chemistry go wrong when Ransom is described so well in the blurb? And any child of Whitney Kepler is going to be a knockout! These two kids who grew up together have a lot of history to work with. When Stella finally decides to go for the manly and amazing Ransom, it all works out in a fantastically satisfying way!

This book was fast paced! It started out with a heart racing introduction to Ransom and Stella and Rambo. Ms. Briscoe did an incredible job of weaving a imaginative tale of love and high stakes risks and canine love. It had the perfect blend of can't turn the page fast enough to get to the spicy bits, woven with the all important mundane and everyday bits of life that make life real. Much like many of Ms. Briscoe's books, this is written in chapters back and forth by our main characters; but we get the added treat of some chapters by the parents, which give us insight to their lives as adults and parents of adult children. One of my favorite parts!

I thought this book was an amazing next step after the MTF series. It creates a bridge between the original series and leads the way for a fantastic new set of characters and books while keeping us in touch with some of my favorite books families. I've read all of Ms. Briscoe's books, with the MTF series being among my favorite (I'm an Ace gal, and Trick); but this book ranks right up there! I think because I'm such a huge fan of becoming invested in book families so this continues the MTF. But also because Ransom and Stella are just such marvellous characters. Can't wait to see more of the LSERT!
