The kid is now a man, and he’s got something to prove…..
Caleb “Cruise” Harrison
“A Dad is a son’s first hero……”
All my life I’ve looked up to my Dad, there’s nothing I ever wanted to do more than be a member of the Moonshine Task Force right next to him. I said no to playing football professionally to stay in Laurel Springs and fulfill my dream.
I’m biding my time, paying my dues, and soaking up any bit of information my fellow MTF members slip my way. To most of them I’m the kid they watched grow up, and while they’re proud of me, they don’t take me seriously.
Life is status quo until the morning all hell breaks loose in our small town threatening everyone I know and love – including the one woman I can’t get out of my head.
“My favorite place? In his arms……”
Caleb saved me from the worst date of my life, swooping in like the fixer he is. Smiling his panty-melting grin, he grabbed my hand, and extricated me from the longest ninety minutes known in the history of the world.
Instead, he took me on the best date I’ve ever had. We’ve been inseparable since that crazy night.
It hasn’t been picture-perfect. His job is dangerous, it worries me, even when he tells me not to. One gorgeous summer day, it all comes crashing down on us.
The man who has my heart is in the middle of a FUBAR situation that has no good ending. My hope is, when the smoke clears Caleb walking towards me, arms out-stretched, with that grin on his face, before he envelopes my body into the hug only he can give.
That’s what would happen in a perfect world – but I’ve never known a perfect world – not even with Caleb……
The Moonshine Task Force has been one of my favorite series over the past several months. We have followed these heroic amazing men as they fight the crime on the force, especially when it comes to cleaning up their small town of Moonshine. We have watched the men meet the loves of their lives and start raising families.
But in this, the final book of the series, we get to see our beloved Caleb as an adult. We have watch Caleb grow up throughout the series and fight many obstacles along the way, but none so trying as those he faces now. Caleb has grown up to be an upstanding young man. He’s polite, respected, gand living his dream of being on the MTF with his dad and giving back to the town he loves. But we also learn he’s got a bit of a bad boy side and boy does this reader love it. He is every girls dream including the shy and insecure Ruby (well she is until she meets Caleb), he tends to bring out her inner wants and desires that even she didn’t know she had. But can it last, because both Caleb and Ruby have not had the best history when it comes to relationships. But Caleb and Ruby share a remarkable connection. One that the author’s words will have you feeling right along with them; its raw, emotional and passionate. But things are never perfect. When life throws them a major hurdle can these two figure out a way to get over it together or is this just another breaking point.
I Tip my Hat to the Ms. Briscoe for an amazing book and series – both of which are 5 star Must Reads.
The boy we met in the beginning of this amazing series is now a man and the author rounds out her series with another amazing read as we now watch the son of Mason find his way through the rigors of being on the Moonshine Task Force, following in his father and his hero’s footsteps, and into his own HEA. Cruise is a wonderful story that will not only give you all the feels, but it will also complete the story of Mason and his son, Caleb (Cruise) as we get the son’s view of his life with his single father and new mother. Their ups and downs as told by Caleb to the new love interest in his life, Ruby. This story is well written and will have you turning page after page to see how things play out, not only in his career, but with Ruby as well. Not only is there a bit of excitement and a chemistry between him and Ruby, but the special scenes between the two when they are alone will ignite the pages as you read. Not all is fun and games as their relationship is tested to it’s max when Caleb had to take down a bad guy in front of the Cafe’ and has a very hard time coming to grips with what he has done. It takes a strong woman to handle what he is dishing out as he tries to push her away. Will she lose the only man that has made her life complete?
The characters are so very well written and defined that you will feel like you are actually right there with them, wishing you were actually there with them just to know these two in reality. The other characters from the previous books are all here joining in their joy and their struggles, but none as much as Mason and Karina, along with his little sister Kelsea, who is just a joy to read.
I adored this book, this series and I cannot recommend this book and this series highly enough. I do hope that everyone who loves good, fast paced, romance books with hot cops, fiery spirited women who love them, action both on the streets and between the sheets will give this series a try. You will not be disappointed!
