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.

The Laurel Springs Emergency Response Team is turning out to be as explosive as it’s parent series. This series is about the 2 generation (the kids) of the Moonshine Taskforce. The author has given us another well written storyline that will tear at your heartstrings and keep you in suspense as you fly through the pages. Kelsea has been in love with Nick as long as she can remember. But she has her doubts that he will ever take things beyond friendship. But it doesn’t keep her from wishing with all her heart. As for Nick, he learned at a young age not to show any emotions and you won’t get hurt, so no matter what he “wants” he knows he has to hold Kelsea at bay. One drunken night they both let their guard down. But in the light of day, while Kelsea is in heaven, Nick knows he’s messed up and not good enough for Kelsea, so he walks away. Can Kelsea convince Nick he’s worth it, that they are worth fighting for? Or will she finally be convinced they weren’t meant to be and move on. This is a very emotional, exciting, suspenseful romance that hold your heart captive. I Highly recommend Suppression and all the Laurel Springs books (Moonshine Task Force series & the Emergency Response Team series). 2 Thumbs Up 5 Amazing Stars!!!!

Ransom was a great 5 star read and book one in the LSERT series. If you read the Moonshine Task Force series you will love this one just as much, this is the second generation. We get so many great new characters and we see some of the favorites as well. Laramie has once again pulled me right in. I fell in love with Ransom and Rambo right along with Stella. Ransom is a K9 officer and Stella is working in a clinic. Both Stella and Ransom have grown up together, their parents are best friends. For years these two have been flirty but never went any further. When Stella faces a really scary 911 situation that Ransom responds to she realizes that she has to seize the moment. She offers to make a thank you dinner for him. Needless to say things flare up from here but they decide to keep it on the down-low for awhile. I knew we would be explosive if we ever allowed ourselves to light the fuse, but I’m not prepared for this sexy man in front of me. These two really bring it in this story. There is so much going on and the secondary characters were great, loved them all. There is a huge heart stopping twist that had me in tears. Overall this has to be one of my top favorites from Laramie, the ending was great and the epilogue was even better. I highly recommend 1-clicking and getting started today on this series. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

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!
