Red's Rating: 5 Super Sexy ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐!
Welcome to Pistol Rock, Texas where everyone knows secrets last about as long as the sporadic west Texas rain showers.
Laney Briggs has long been considered reckless by the denizens of her hometown, but she’s finally turned it all around—she’s happily engaged to the local veterinarian and she’s become a Pistol Rock deputy sheriff. Everything’s fine and dandy—until a dead body turns up and her ex, Texas Ranger Gunner Wilson, decides to stick his boots into the town’s first murder case. Of course, the troublesome cowboy’s rugged good looks and T-shirt-straining muscles are already leaving Laney knee-deep in hot water, but she’ll be damned if she lets Gunner trample all over her turf. She’s decided that, instead of conflict, she wants a contented, steady life with her vet—a life in which Gunner Wilson and his seemingly endless ability to undermine her resolve and her libido plays no part. Still, it’s hard to keep her head as forbidden sparks ignite and suspicions arise between old rivals and old flames. And when the bodies start to pile up, Laney has to ask the lethal bad boy for a hand—and a truce in exchange for his help. But after uncovering the pack of lies surrounding not only her job but her heart… Having an ex-boyfriend as an ally might not be the best idea, but it’s certainly the most reckless, and Laney has always been pretty reckless…

Here Is My Review Of Pretty Reckless:
Laney Briggs thinks she has her life all figured out and everything is just where she wants it, but in the blink of an eye it's turned upside down and she is wondering what in the hell just happened. Bodies are piling up, she is trying to catch the killer, and now in walks her drop dead gorgeous devil of an ex-Texas Ranger Gunner Wilson and he wants to pick-up where they left things off...and there is no way that is happening, he has been replaced! But little by the little the sexy and oh so alluring devil clad in tight fittin' Wranglers keeps finding a way to sneak under her radar and into her business and she is fighting him every step of the way. He had his chance and he blew it and she is not about to let him do it again... well maybe?
The moment I saw the cover for this one I knew I had to read it, it spoke volumes to me, that sexy shirtless cowboy peaked my interest and I wasn't about to walk away from him without learning every little tidbit about him... and MERCY did I love what I find!! I love a good romantic suspense novel every now and then, and I have to say this is by far one of the best that I have read in a long while, Laney and Gunner were an absolute delight!! They kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way through, had me giggling from time to time, and blushing more times than not!! It was refreshing to read a story with a strong female heroine, that was able to stand toe to toe with the alpha male character in the story, and give him just as much as he gave her, Laney is something else!! I loved that the characters in this story came with a very realistic quality, their big personalities shined through page after page, and they made me want not want to leave when my time with them was over! Now I am dying to get back to them and see what other adventure they have in store for me!!
Highly recommend this one, it is sure to keep you entertained from start to finish!!
