Pretty Reckless & Whatcha Gonna Do With A Cowboy by Jodi Linton

Pretty Reckless &
Whatcha Gonna Do With A Cowboy
by Jodi Linton
Series: Deputy Laney Briggs, #1 & #1.5
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book 1: Pretty Reckless

She’s dead-set on giving one bullheaded cowboy the boot.

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, but she’s turned herself around—she’s respectably engaged and she’s become a Pistol Rock deputy sheriff. Everything’s fine 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.
Laney will be damned if she lets Gunner trample all over her turf and her chance at a quiet, contented life. His seemingly endless ability to undermine her resolve and her libido was only outdone by her constant urge to butt heads with him. But 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.

Having an ex-boyfriend as an ally might not be the best idea, but Laney has always been pretty reckless…

Book 1.5: Whatcha Gonna Do With A Cowboy

Some cowboys are worth getting dirty for.

In her latest adventure, sassy Deputy Laney Briggs discovers the local high school football coach passed out under the stadium bleachers wearing nothing but a smile…and his wife’s lingerie.

Things really start to get wild when she runs into the smoking hot Federal Marshal, Colt Larsen, snooping around the Granger’s house. Quicker than a cold snap comes and goes in Texas, Laney finds herself up to her eyeballs in a case involving a ruthless motorcycle gang, a Mexican drug cartel, a kidnapping, and a shoot-out to rival the O.K. Corral.

In over their heads, Laney calls in the big guns—her very own Texas Ranger, Gunner Wilson, who’s ready to fulfill every last one of her desires. But as things heat up between them, the stakes get higher than ever, and Gunner’s help may not be enough for Laney to get out alive…

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you are into mystery,suspense and lots of twists and turns mixed in with your romance then I'm sure you will love this book.

Gunner and Laney's story is complicated and full of roadblocks.  There is murder and a drug trafficing scheme in their small town and Gunner who is a Texas Ranger has come back to investigate.  Laney is a deputy and caught right in the middle of everything while she tries to uncover the truth while dealing with the feelings she thought she had eliminated for Gunner.

I enjoyed the story and will be reading more by Jodi Linton.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This novella is a continuation of Laney and Gunners story but can be read as a stand alone also.

As a Deputy Sheriff Laney is really good at finding trouble, her sexy as every boyfriend Texas Ranger Gunner just adds to the excitement.  Then throw in some humor and intrigue and you will have a story that will keep those pages turning and wanting to know where this story will go next.  The list of characters just gets wilder and wilder and I can't wait to find out what will happen with Luke in future books.

Growing up in a small Texas town didn't have many perks, but it allowed for some colorful writing material. After settling down with her family in central Texas, Jodi found her passion: writing kick-ass, southern contemporary romance stories. Today she can be found cozied up to the computer escaping into a quirky world of tall tales, sexy, tight jean wearing cowboys, and a protagonist with a sharp-tongue quick enough to hang any man out to dry.
