About this ebook


Enjoy this fourth book in the Moonshine Task Force Series. A steamy small-town, law enforcment series by USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling author, Laramie Briscoe.

Ace is saving lives and mending hearts...

Anthony “Ace” Bailey

I’m not a rules kinda guy 

Department Policy? Kinda sucks, but I do what I have to for the job that I love.

Playing it safe? Not my thing.

Married? No big deal when I know she’s unhappy and scared.

I’m one of those guys – a sniper in the military, a little bit of an adrenaline junkie, and a member of the Moonshine Task Force. I’ve lived through some shit.

My gut has never failed me. It’s my sixth-sense. Warning me of a gunshot coming my way, of a traffic stop being potentially deadly, or the tingling in the back of my neck when I go to sleep telling me I’ll be woken up by a call in the middle of the night. My gut has always kept me honest.

Like the day I walked into The Café and saw the new waitress. There was a ring on her left hand, but I didn’t care. One look in her eyes told me everything I needed to know. Her marriage wasn’t one made of love and respect. It was one made of fear and doubt.

It’s why I ignored that ring, why I arrested her husband, and the reason I’m willing to take my time. Patience is a virtue, and with this woman, I have it in spades.

Violet Miller

Meeting Anthony Bailey changed my life. He did things that no one else has ever done for me.

Feeling safe? Never happened before.

Feeling wanted? It’s been years.

Being independent? I’m learning.

It’s foreign, not having someone question my every move, being able to eat what I want for dinner, and sitting out on my front porch talking to Anthony every night while we share a couple beers.

I try to tell myself he’s just being nice; that he’s doing his job and working within the community. The problem? The night he takes the kiss we both want, everything changes, and I can no longer deny what I feel. But it doesn’t stop me from trying – and I learn quickly that Ace knows me better than anyone else ever has – including myself.

All I can do is hang on, as he takes me on the scariest journey of my life. The one that bends us until we almost break, and ends with a happily ever after I never thought I would get.

ACE includes the wedding of a beloved couple, an appearance by Reaper, and the continuation of EVERYONE falling in love with Caleb!

Ace was a great 5 star read. I couldn’t wait to get started on this book. I was so excited to get Ace and Violet’s story. Violet met Ace while she was working at the diner. He also arrested her husband for physically attacking and beating Violet at the diner. There is something about Ace that really attracts Violet. He’s kind and caring. Ace helps Violet get a new place to live right next door to him. She is also in the process of getting a divorce and is trying to respect boundaries with Ace until she is free to be all his. These two were very strong willed, not sure I could have resisted like they did. We get to see not only Violet’s live be a little bit into Ace’s as well as a police officer. Ace was the perfect gentleman and really cared about and respected Violet. He is a true hot alpha male. Violet is a very strong woman to go through what she has. One thing is for sure, I will figure out who I am, or I’ll die trying. - Violet I really enjoyed this book, we not only get the romance between Violet and Ace but we get a little bit of mystery with the moonshine again. All of the secondary characters were great. I loved seeing the characters from the previous books in the series. I can’t help but want to read more from these two but I was very happy with the ending. Laramie Briscoe has once again pulled me right in with her writing. I can’t wait to read Menace Book 5 in the series. .

ACE I have been waiting patiently for this book since we first got a glimpse of Violet and Anthony in book 3 of this dynamite series. Anthony“Ace”Bailey is a thrill seeker in my book and was never one for following the rules even when it came to a ring on someone's finger and unhappiness shining in her eyes. Violet Miller has gone through a traumatic experience being attacked by her husband but its nothing compared to the abuse she has suffered for years. Enter Ace who puts a stop to it and arrest her husband but he's also determined to be there for her and to take his chance once she has healed. This pair is made for each other and you see glimpses throughout the story whenever they are together. When they finally come together its like magic because it completely enchants you. I LOVE THIS series and this is totally my favorite couple!!!!

Ace knows when its time to push and when he needed to be a good friend and thats exactly what violet needed with everything she was going through not counthing the feeling she had.Goals were put out that violet needed to be done before she felt confident that shes would move on hand was worth the kind of attention Ace was giving.How friends turn into so much more than the could've ever imagined
