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!


I received a free copy of this book from the publisher/author to review for Stephanie’s Book Reports.
Ace is the fourth book in Laramie Briscoe’s Moonshine Task Force Series. If you haven’t experienced any of the Moonshine Task Force you are missing out and I highly recommend them.
Anthony “Ace” Bailey is not a rules kid of guy. He isn’t crazy about he department rules but has to follow them to ensure he has a job. Playing it safe is not his kind of thing.  If someone special just happens to be married it is no big deal when he knows when is unhappy and scared. Ace is a sniper in the military, a little bit of an adrenaline junkie, and a member of the Moonshine Task Force. He has lived through some bad stuff. However, his gut has never failed him and has always kept him honest. Just like the day he walked into The Cafe and saw the new waitress. There was a ring on her left hand, but he didn’t care. One look in her eyes told him everything he needed to know. Her marriage wasn’t one made of lave and respect. It was one made of fear and doubt. It is why he ignored that ring, why I arrested her husband and the reason he is willing to take his time. Patience is a virtue, and with Violet, he has it in spades.
If you haven’t read the previous books you might want to do that before reading Ace. There is a wedding of a couple in the previous books and the appearance of several other couples from the previous books that have a part to do with this story. But, you also get a glimpse into what they are up to and how things are going for them. This might just spoil the other books for you. I have to say that I loved Ace. He melted my heart more times than I could count. I think we all need a little Ace in our life. Violet caught his interest from the first moment Antony laid eyes on her. She however is married to a scumbag that Anthony ends up arresting and also saved Violet’s life.  Violet has lived in an abusive marriage that had made her lose all her self confidence and makes her hide from herself and other people. Ace saved her and he has been by her side helping her to recover or sitting in her drive at night to make sure she can sleep. This is their love story. Most of this book is a love story. Their is a little bit of Moonshine Task Force action in the book but it is mainly the story of Ace and Violet.
Laramie Briscoe did an amazing job with this book. I felt like I was going through things right along with Violet and Ace. I was thankful more than once that Violet had Ace. He has got to the be most patient man on the face of the earth and that is exactly what Violet needed. I loved how he would at times push her to try new things and to be around people. But, most of all I loved watching these two fall in love. I can not wait to see which book we get next. I am loving this series so much.
