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 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 doesn’t warm 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 definitely has every single bit of my interest.
“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 English teacher, I’m sick of pervy
Dad’s 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 the parent/teacher conference 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.
Menace is the fifth book in the Moonshine Task Force Series from Laramie Briscoe. I guess you could read this book as a standalone but I would recommend reading them all from the beginning as the characters overlap into each book. Menace is the story of Mason and Karina.
Mason aka Menace is a police officer and a member of the Moonshine Task Force and as we all know he if you have read the other books he is the single father of Caleb. We also know that Caleb had a hard time with the death of his friend due to bad moonshine and fell apart and started making horrible decision but turned his life back around thanks to Mason. Now Caleb is eighteen and getting ready to go off to college on her full ride to the University of Alabama. This spurs Mason on to trying to finally date. Mason of course became a father at sixteen and has basically grown up while with Caleb as he raised him so he is not looking forward to being along. When Caleb sets up a profile for him on a dating app he never expects to meet the girl of his dreams. Karina. She is the one and he knows it from the moment he sees her and their first date is explosive. It is filled with so much passion but then she will not return his calls. Unbeknownst to Mason though Karina is one of Caleb’s teachers and when they see each other again.
I loved this book so much and I have to say that Mason and Karina are probably my favorite couple out of this series. I have really liked a lot of them but I fell for Mason and Karina hard. You also can’t help but to fall for Caleb too and his book is next. I so can not wait to get my hands on this book.
When she’s not writing alpha males who seriously love their women, she loves spending time with friends, reading, and marathoning shows on her DVR. Married to her high school sweetheart, Laramie lives in Bowling Green, KY with her husband (the Travel Coordinator) and a sometimes crazy cat named Beau.
