About this ebook

Enjoy this fifth book in a complete steamy small-town law enforcement series by USA Today and Wallstreet Journal Bestselling Author, Laramie Briscoe.

The sexy, single dad of the MTF finally gets his turn...

Mason “Menace” Harrison

“Single and ready to mingle.”

Those are the words above every picture of almost every female that strikes my interest on this dating app my son talked me into getting. After being a single dad for seventeen years, I’m ready to spread my wings, just not with most of the co-eds who keep hitting on me and calling me daddy.

Now that Caleb’s in his senior year of high school, I feel like I can let go of the iron-clad control I’ve had on myself without his mom in our lives. I’ve enjoyed raising him, love the relationship we have, and while he went off the rails for a bit last year, we’re now closer than we’ve ever been. He’s got a full ride to the University of Alabama, and I’ve settled into my spot with the Moonshine Task Force.

But my son isn’t a substitute for a woman in my bed, he isn’t someone I can share my dreams with, and he’s not the person I want to grow old with by my side. I’m not sure who that is yet, but the smokin’ hot lady going by the name BeachBum83 is definitely holding every single bit of my interest.

Karina Holland

“Looking for a good time, maybe more…”

Those were the lamest words I ever typed in my life, but it was the best I had for the dating app my friend Violet talked me into joining. I didn’t have any high hopes for myself. As a high school teacher, I’m sick of pervy dads hitting on me when they come in to discuss their child’s lack of motivation to read the classics and apply themselves.

Until the day Mason Harrison walks into my classroom. I had no idea Caleb’s dad was the man I met off that dating app who showed me how flexible I really am in the back of his Jeep. Within minutes of him speaking to my class, he proved the sparks weren’t one-time only when we christened my desk.

Mason and Caleb? They touch a part of my heart that no one’s ever touched before, and when a threat from the past shows up, I prove just how tough I really am.

Strictly a true description of the philosophy of when one door closes scenario. But with a sexy twist. He thought he was to old and that he missed out on love but he had a great reason, Being the best dad to his son . He was and is a success in that hands down area, he forgot that even great dads are men with needs too. In walks our heroine and she remunds him of the fact that yes he's still a man, and it is really alright to have a life even after children. And to enjoy yourself.

I love the maturity of it all. No unnecessary miscommunications and Menace and Karina are a charming couple. Their dynamic and relationship felt very natural and the pacing and development was just chef's kiss. This is a great book

Really liked reading how their relationship progressed, from the instant sparks in the beginning, which had them questioning if it was real, how in spite of their fears they were honest with each other and let the sparks turn into a flame
