Ransom Thompson

For years IÕve wanted two things - to be a member of the Moonshine Task Force and to be the man Stella Kepler canÕt live without.

One out of two isnÕt bad, or so I tell myself. Being the only K-9 handler for The MTF presents its own share of obstacles, but me and Rambo? We make it work. Life is status quo, until IÕm called in to help with what appears to be a hostage situation and Stella is right in the middle of it.

This is my one chance, and IÕm not going to blow it.

Stella Kepler

When IÕm stuck in an examination room holding a hurt woman and a man with a gun, I do the only thing I can. I sneak out, call 911 and hope help comes quickly. It does.

In the form of Ransom Thompson.

He and I have known each other since we were babies. Our motherÕs are friends, our dadÕs work together, and weÕve always been friends.

Only, the last few months IÕve started to notice things. How mature he is, how alpha he can be, the chiseled six-pack, and the abundance of ink spreading across his body.Ê

When I offer to cook him dinner for saving me, neither one of us know how that one moment will change the course of the rest of our lives.Ê

Ransom and Stella's love story is perfect for readers who love small town romance, hotshot police officers, alpha heroes, smart sassy heroines, friends to lovers, happily ever after, slow burn, emotional romance with plenty of swoon.

Laramie Briscoe writes the best book boyfriends. I mean, seriously - Ransom is fantastic. He's all alpha male when he needs to be, and he's all teddy bear when that's required. And he and Stella are so good together. The story is a low-angst, feel-good read for the most part. There is some excitement and danger, but the focus is on Ransom and Stella. This is one of those books that you can't read without smiling and doing a fair bit of swooning. There are a lot of characters from the Moonshine Taskforce, and the author provides some info in the front of the book to give new readers some background. That said, this one does stand alone, and it's easy to figure out the various ties to other characters in the story. All in all, Ransom is a quick, entertaining romance with a sweet and sexy couple and some great secondary characters to look forward to as the series progresses.

Ransom by Laramie Briscoe is the first book in her Laurel Springs Emergency Response Team series. This is the next generation awesomeness of the Moonshine Task Force series. So while readers of the the MTF books will get a kick out of the characters involvement in the LSERT series, LSERT is all about the new kids. Ransom is the story of Ransom Thompson and Stella Kepler and is heartfelt, emotional, angsty and wonderful. Ransom has been into Stella for as long as he can remember. She is his best friends older sister and she has never really taken the time to notice him over the years. Not in the way he wants her to. But all that is about to change. What blossoms between them in the heat of a dangerous moment is a result of years of knowing each other and it isn't the first time she's appreciated Ransom, his kindness, his body, and his heart in the past few months, but this will be the first time she decides to act on it. Oh the angst of finally requited love, the danger of dating a police officer, and the issues involved with keeping things secret just to be safe should things go wrong... I loved this book and can't wait to get more of this series and of Laurel Springs! Enjoy!

this is a great book. the story and characters come together easily and it's not all deep tragedy and heavy reading ( though I like those stories too). I also love that the family is in it and not in your face .
