They begin investigating and find out that Kate has crossed the wrong people and is in big danger. Will they be able to find her in time and what is the connection she has to Colt? In between the investigating things are still nice and steamy with Laney and Gunner. Will it last?
Love this series and hope there will be more. I recommend this book if you are looking for a fun read with some steam. It is sure to keep you entertained.
I shrugged. “And your point is?”
“It just all makes perfect sense why you shot at me tonight, that’s all.”
Laney is back and sassier than ever! This time we find Laney face to face with a feisty Federal Marshal Colt Larsen, who just may have more than a professional interest in the latest case Laney has found herself in the middle of. And the fact that Gunner is out of town isn't helping – all that frustration that Laney has pent up is locked and loaded right at Colt Larsen, which makes for some tense times! When things start to escalate, Gunner may be the only one who can help Laney and Colt bring the bad guys to justice without be collateral damage themselves.
This book had a bit of everything that I love – a lot of mystery, a ton of sass, a heap of suspense, and some real hot steamy times! After we left Laney at the end of Pretty Reckless, it was easy to think she would be setting off on a journey to her own happy ever after, but life is never that simple, especially in the town of Pistol Rock. Laney is still fighting to find peace within herself, and although Gunner has helped to ground her, she still wrestles with her own personal demons. She’s a bit volatile – just ask Colt Larsen about that – and she’s still trying to come to terms with her feelings towards Gunner.
Gunner had many traits. He could be relaxing to be around. He could be bullheaded. He could be demanding. But most of all, he was my addiction.
And I was obsessed. I had always been obsessed.
And maybe true addiction never fades.
Maybe everything I’d ever wanted or needed was right here…right now.
One of the things I like best about this series is that even though Laney and Gunner seem to belong together, there is still something that leaves an air of uncertainty around things. Unlike a lot of books where you just know two characters are meant to be together even if they don’t see it themselves, there is just something about Laney that leaves you wondering just where she’ll end up…which makes me very excited to read the next book since I’m not really sure what kind of trouble Laney will find herself in or just how things are going to turn out for her and Gunner. Things are hot and steamy between the two, but sometimes I feel like the tenderness beneath it all is running a step or two behind…we’ll just have to see what’s in store for them!
There weren't a lot of appearances by some of the characters we got to know in Pretty Reckless, but we do get to spend a dinner with Laney’s parents…they are so not up for any “Parent of the Year” awards! We also get a look at Laney’s cousin Wyatt (a bit of a closer look than Laney would have liked!), and of course we get to spend some time with Elroy during the case. I just love these colorful characters and they really come to life on the page.
And I’d be remiss if I didn't at lease mention that Federal Marshal who showed up in town. Colt Larsen may be sexy as all get out, but he’s got some serious secrets he’s keeping…and I for one hope we get to find out what they are at some point!
I really enjoyed this installment of the Deputy Laney Briggs series, my only complaint would be that it was a novella which means it was too short and I just want more, but of course that’s just me being greedy! This is certainly not your typical cowboy love story, but it’s so easy to fall in love with Laney and the gang from Pistol Rock.
I was given a copy of this book from the publisher for an honest review.
This story is humorous, at times erotic, and just plain fun to read. There is plenty of action, a few plot twists and lots more Laneyism’s that I cannot wait to steal and use in everyday life.
This new episode in Laney Briggs' life takes off a few months after the Ketamine case in this back water town in Western Texas. Laney is competing with her partner Elroy for the vacant Sheriff position. There is never a dull moment and Laney is happy mostly to be entwined with Gunner again. Life isn't all it seems in Pistol Rocks and long distance relationship with Gunner isn't working when she has an itch to scratch! Cue potential distraction – Federal Marshal Colt Larsen!
Why would Colt be interested in the Coach Granger's missing wife case? That's what Laney needs to find out because she has a hunch that Colt isn't being entirely honest with her... and she needs him to leave town as soon as possible.
Jodi Linton has done it again and even better! The heat factor has gone up some notches and the banter and dialogue between the characters is hilarious – the scene where Laney and Gunner are having dinner with her parents is both laugh-out-loud funny and cringe-worthy all at the same time – fabulous! Lets not for get Pistol Rock's colourful cast of supporting characters; Hello Luke Wagner! And you have a perfect mix of sexy cowboys and misfits!
I'm eagerly anticipating the next installment of Laney Briggs' life.
Top reviews from other countries
The characters: Strong, confident…and flawed. Funny as all hell, in out of control, party mode.
The relationship: There’s a lot of sizzle, the heat level between Laney and Gunner is in the red zone. But, what makes this a smart read, is the underlying certainty that these two fit. They belong together. If only they can navigate around the obstacles life throws. That’s a big ‘if’. And this is where the Jodi Linton shows her class, because that uncertainty promises to sustain the series. Its all about anticipation…and the unexpected.
The writing: Fluid and packed with personality
The pacing: Never a dull moment
The length: WYGDWAC is a novella. For a terrific read, it was all over too soon. (I believe Book 3 in the Laney Briggs series is ‘full-length’, and I can’t wait)
