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
outstretched, 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……
Welcome to my stop on the release blitz tour for Laramie Briscoe’s latest in the Moonshine Task Force series, Cruise. Jumping ahead in time a bit, readers receive the fabulous treat of Caleb “Cruise” now that he’s joined his Dad and friends as part of the MTF. I always thought Caleb was the coolest kid/teenager in the earlier installments and now I love him even more. When Caleb overhears a guy talking trash to a young lady named Ruby in the diner one evening, he can’t help but intervene. And of course, Ruby can’t help but be taken with the gorgeous man that comes to her rescue.
There was not one single thing to not love about Ruby. She was sweet, beautiful, a little shy, caring, and worked as a teacher. She and Caleb had an instant, magnetic connection between them, and Ruby also had an instant connection with Caleb’s younger sister – that was so sweet!
As typical of the MTF novels, there was also plenty of drama in this one centered around crime in their community. But there was also a lot of emotion that was painful and heartbreaking to witness as Caleb struggled with an incident on the job. The author beautifully blends a mix of joy, sadness, chemistry, love, and of course – family and friendship – making this such a fabulous read.
Laramie Briscoe has knocked it out of the park with this one, given the MTF series a fresh update now that Caleb is older, but also allowed us a peek at how our favorite characters from the earlier novels are doing now. I absolutely love this series and have loved every single book. I only hope that this isn’t the end!!
When she’s not writing alpha males who seriously love their women, she loves spending time with friends, reading, and marathoning shows on her DVR. Married to her high school sweetheart, Laramie lives in Bowling Green, KY with her husband (the Travel Coordinator) and a sometimes crazy cat named Beau.
