Ransom is book 1 of the LSERT series and Briscoe has me hook line and sinker, Ransom is her best alpha male yet and I could not put this one down.
Ransom is the son of Leighton and Holden Thompson and Stella the daughter of Ryan and Whitney Kepler from the original MTF series; all grown up Ransom is part of the MTF legacy his father has helped create but he also has his sidekick Rambo his K-9 by his side. When Ransom is called, he finds Stella in a serious situation he saves the day, leaving an opening for Stella to make her move and he doesn’t have the strength to say no to her.
' "And what would it take to convince you?" I scoot closer to her, food forgotten, Rambo forgotten, my attention just on her. "Not a lot, Ransom. I'm more than positive you can figure it out." '
Ransom is all grown up and my gosh he has turned out to be sexy, dirty mouthed alpha male; leaving you flustered and hoping you get pulled over by him asap! Stella is caring and has more confidence in and out of the bedroom than any other strong female lead I’ve ever read, Stella Kepler is no damsel in distressed.
Ransom and Stella have intense sexual chemistry, they are comfortable with each other and leave nothing left unsaid with what they want. They will burn up the pages in the book leaving you blushing and wanting more.
I personally loved this book and quite frankly I think this is my favorite of them all, I am a complete sucker for a hot cop in uniform with a bullet proof vest and thigh holster. I cannot wait to read Nick and Kelsea’s story up next.
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!
I absolutely loved this book! Some of the MTF books weren't my favourite, but Ransom has got me running back to this series. Ransom is hot and strong, Stella is sassy and strong, and Rambo is adorable. I loved that the balance between the MTF or LSERT was perfect. I feel like it was integrated so well into this book, that it was a part of it, as opposed to previous MTF books where it seemed almost an afterthought. The level and amount of sex also felt right. I've felt, with previous books, there's been too much of it in favour of skirting important discussions that need to happen, but again here, the balance was just right. I also loved the alternate POVs here, with previous MTF characters. I also loved the supporting cast of next gen MTF, Kelsey and Nick especially, whose book I can't wait for!
One thing I would like, and struggled with slightly, is an MTF family tree. With so many names and call names and kids floating around, if you haven't recently read the proceeding books lately, it gets confusing very quickly and at times hard to follow. But that's a small complaint.
I loved this book, there's real LivePD vibes here and it's awesome!
