When a marriage of convenience turns into the passion of a lifetime…

Holden “Havoc” Thompson

My job as the leader of the Moonshine Task Force is my life. I eat, breathe, and sleep it. The men under my command mean the world to me. Knowing they count on my guidance has kept my demons at bay for longer than I care to admit.

The control I have over myself is an iron fist that sometimes threatens to squeeze the life out of me. What I want more than anything is to live again –  let go of the hurt smothering every bit of light I have in this darkness.

I don’t expect it to come in the form of a Moonshiner’s daughter needing my protection.

Leighton Strather

My whole life has been defined by who my family is. In the state of Alabama, we’re number one with a target on our backs. The danger and prestige isn’t for me. I don’t care about the money, and I care too much about the families we’ve ruined.

My brother and my dad are proud of it. They wear their arrest records like a badge of honor. Me? I want as far away from the lifestyle as I can get.

It’s the only reason I ask Holden to marry me. At least that's
what I tell myself.

I never expect his whispered yes to cause such upheaval in my life. Even though I resist, I learn some havoc is good – and this one? It’s a whirlwind of lust, hope, and love and all I can do is let it sweep me away.

I have been waiting on this book!  I was sucked in the moment the last book ended and I saw the interaction between Havoc and Leighton.  I needed their story! This is the 3rd book in the series but can easily be read as a stand alone. 

Holden "Havoc" Thompson is the epitome of a good man.  He leads his team on the Task Force with honesty and respect.  He rescues Leighton from an impossible situation.  Even marries her to keep her demons at bay.  Had he has the will power of a saint while biding his time to build a relationship with Leighton before taking it further.  He doesn't want to have a relationship at all given how his heart was broken in the past.  But he is willing to try for Leighton.  

Havoc makes the story for me.  Leighton is ok.  She just kind of floats through.  I think she ultimately cares a great deal for Havoc. She is the source of the tension and the pivot on both sides of the law.  I hope she grows to appreciate him beyond her physical attraction.  

I am happy with the story arc so far.  I hope to see more of Leighton's brother in the future as well.  Great to catch up with the previous couples.  Love the humor and friendship when the guys and ladies are together.  

Great read once again by this author!
