tankAbout the book: 

Trevor “Tank” Trumbolt

I never thought in the blink of an eye my life could change, but it did. Cresting a hill driving to my favorite fishing spot, I was hit head-on by a teenager with no regard for anyone’s life but his own.

The recovery process has been hard, painful, and damn near beating me down.

The bright spot? Blaze.

Surviving the wreck has given me a second chance to make a life with her. Not knowing if I’ll ever be able to rejoin the Moonshine Task Force again has brought my world into focus. It’s made me realize what’s important.

Blaze. Stella. My brothers. My sister.

The ego that ran Blaze away before isn’t here any longer. What’s left is a man who’s holding his heart in his hands and a burning hope that once I’m healed she’ll still be around.

Daphne “Blaze” Coleman

There’s only been one person in the world who’s accepted me for who I am – from the fiery red of my hair and vibrant tattoos covering parts of my body to the smartness of my mouth and my desire to be matched in the bedroom.

That man is Trevor Trumbolt. When he asked me to give up my job as an EMT because he saw the dangers I face one scary afternoon, it spelled the end for us.

Now that he’s been injured, he needs my help and my love. I’ll give it all freely, but in the end I’m gonna need him to understand one thing about relationships. The give and take, love and sadness, pleasure and pain is a two-way street. He’s either in this with me or he’s not, but at the end of the day, I won’t let him boss me around.

If there’s anything that can handle the steel of a tank – it’s the heat of a blaze.

My Review:

After falling in love with Renegade, the 1st novel in the Moonshine Task Force series, I couldn’t wait to dive right into book 2, Tank. This time around the focus is on Trevor (Tank) and the gorgeous EMT that goes by Blaze (Daphne). On his day off, Trevor is heading out for a relaxing day of fishing when he’s involved in a horrible head-on collision. When Blaze and her partner arrive at the scene she thinks the worst, but luckily, Tank pulls through. After a year of back and forth and not being able to see eye to eye, Blaze commits to taking care of Tank and helping him heal. But as they grow closer, can they work through their differences?

I already knew a lot about Tank from the 1st book, being that he is Renegade’s best friend and Whitney’s brother, and I already loved him! This time around, however, there was a much deeper look into the man that he is and his feelings for Blaze. I loved learning more about Blaze and how her multiple tattoos, job, and flaming red hair completely clash with her stuffy upbringing. 

Considering that he is a police officer and a member of the MTF, I was a bit put off by his demands that Blaze stops working as an EMT, although his justification was not wanting her to be in danger. Regardless, this stubborn couple had amazing chemistry and demonstrated nothing but love for one another. 

Once again, Briscoe has created a page-turner full of romance, conflict, healing, and compromise. I can’t say that I enjoyed it was much as Renegade, but it was still a fantastic read!
