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.

Whitney Trumbolt

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.

In this first book within this series Renegade (Moonshine Task Force #1) we’re introduced to Whitney Trumbolt a thirty five year old recently divorced wedding planner and twenty-five year old Ryan ‘Renegade’ Kepler, a police officer whose best friends with Trevor, Whitney’s younger brother. 

I go by nickname 'Renegade' and I'm a member of a specialized task force, along with my regular job as a cop. 

The opening chapter we’re introduced to a very drunk intoxicated Whitney as she’s staring in a glass of wine trying to figure out how many she’s had. Ryan Kepler is mildly surprised when he enters their local for a beer and sees Whitney sitting at the bar nursing a glass of wine, he’s harboured a distant crush on Whitney for as far back as he can recall. 

Add in the fact that she’s intoxicated to boot makes for a funny first chapter. Because drunk Whitney has no filter, and I mean none whatsoever!!

PEW!! PEW!! PEW!! Sorry couldn't help myself just had to get it out lol!!

To propositioning Ryan to give her what she needs/wants/craves and he delivers just that, a one night stand filled of passion.

That one night stand with Ryan led to Whitney getting pregnant which is hard for her to comprehend due to the fact during her marriage it was made out to be her fault that she was unable to conceive.

But surprise surprise what was supposed to be a one time hookup slowly progresses into something that turns into so much more. 

No matter how much she tried to keep Ryan at arms length due to the gap in their ages he wouldn't have a bar of it, that fact there just made him more determined to show her age is just a number and he strived to show her how a woman should be treated.

This was such an awesome way to spend a lazy Sunday with my nose stuck in this book, I rooted hard for this couple to go from friends to lovers to so much more and this author delivered just that, I can’t not wait for the next within this series. There may have been a ten year gap in age between these two characters but that’s what the appeal was in this book for me, he stepped up to the plate, knew exactly what to say, loved his character.
