Pretty Lawless by Jodi Linton Review

Laney Briggs is searching for a few not-so good men, including her Texas Ranger boyfriend.
Fans of Lorelei James’s Long Time Gone Cat Johnson’s Studs and Spurs series will love the sexy and suspenseful addition to the Deputy Laney Briggs series by Author Jodi Linton.

Laney Briggs was almost certain that her sexy-assed Texas Ranger, Gunner Wilson, was gonna pop the question. Instead, he went and pulled one helluva fast one—he arrested her best friend, Luke Wagner, and skipped out. Now Pistol Rock's firecracker deputy is ready to go Wild West on Gunner…if she can just keep that raw, sexual chemistry under control.

Gunner was planning to propose, and it all went to hell. Now he's boots-deep into an investigation with ties to the Dirty Southern Mafia and corrupt cops. Yep, Laney is definitely gonna have his hide. Especially when she finds out just how much he's been keeping from her…
But Laney has a weakness for Gunner's delectable cowboy hotness. And for him, she will break every rule in the book—including the ones she's sworn to uphold.
See where the sparks began to fly with book 1 of the Deputy Laney Briggs series, Pretty Reckless.

 You cannot even imagine the excitement when I heard that I would be reviewing Pretty Lawless! Imagine a 16 year old girl going to a concert! That’s right, it was pathetic! But I didn’t care, Jodi Linton writes the most amazing books and Laney Briggs is one of my favorite characters! But then I remember that this is the last Laney Briggs book and boom! Book hangover, before I even started!!

So we begin the story in the mid of a gigantic cock-up, but not by Laney…its Gunner’s mess. Gunner manages to shoot a dirty cop, arrest Laney’s best friend and is the undercover agent on a swingers club/murder investigation and he did this without telling Laney! As you can imagine, it didn’t go down well add to the top of that, it’s Christmas and you might as well just put a fork in it! But Laney wants to know why, save Luke and pretty much devastate herself by walking away from Gunner…after a little punishment of course!

But a few things get in the way of Laney’s anger plans, like a swingers party, strippers and the fact that she actually loves Gunner puts pay to that plan. I am not going to go too much more into the story; after all I encourage you to read this book of deliciousness. But I will say, by the end of the book I was left satisfied and I wondered if a door has been left open for a spin of….

The entire book was delicious! And I will always think that Lacey as the truly most perfect modern day heroine! And Gunner as a delicious stud muffin (ha-ha). The writing was clean and flowed without any fluff, the plot was well thought out and executed and the rest of the characters are perfect!
I give Pretty Lawless a tearful 10 out of 10!

Her gaze fell to my ass, then rose to my face. “I didn’t know a case of blue balls was on the dinner menu for the evening.”

Ouch. In response to her question, I tipped my hat and said, “Darling, I can’t help it if the good Lord made me healthily endowed.”
Her eyebrow arched. “Oh my god, you’re thinking about me naked.”
Naked. Up against the wall. Screaming my name. Hell, I’d take any one of them and not in a particular order.
“Well, yeah.”
“That could become a real big problem.”
“Tell me about it.”
Laney laughed, the girly sound of her voice making the strain beating down my fly even more painful. “Because I’m thinking about whether the townsfolk will disapprove of me sending another load of rock salt into your ass.”
She must’ve noticed the wince that slipped from my lips, because her upper lip twitched in an attempt to suppress that pretty plump smile of hers.
I shrugged a shoulder. “They would, I promise.”
“Really?” She stepped in closer and ran a hand down my chest, sending every single cell in my body humming let’s have sex. “I probably could convince them it was an accident,” she said, tossing me a cute wink.
There’d be no argument from me on that accurate assessment. Maybe if I played my cards right on the ride over to our house she’d hear me out. God, I was gonna have to master a skill and learn to swallow my pride this time around.
“If you give me a ride, I’ll confess to whatever questions asked.”
The car keys dangled in her petite hands—the same hands that held the power to drive me nuts by simply squeezing my ass. She looked around, almost nervous about what to say next, then fitted me with an icy stare capable of sawing me in two. “Well, cowboy, it looks like you’re in luck. I know just the place to drop ya off at.”
Pathetic, how much I enjoyed that nickname
