When you fall in love with the most unexpected person, at the most unexpected time……
Ryan “Renegade” Kepler
I’m the type of man who knows what I want. I make up my mind and stay in my lane, never veering off the course I set for myself.
Going into the military? Did it. Youngest member of the Moonshine Task Force?
That’s me. Get my best friend’s older sister in bed? It was my pleasure.
Age means nothing to me. I’ve seen and done things men twice my age never will. What I want more than anything is someone to share my life with and that person is my best friend's older sister, Whitney.
Ryan is ten years my junior, but damn, being a cougar never felt as good as it did the night we spent together. Now I’m struggling with wanting things to either go back to the way they were or spend every night in his arms.
Make my wedding planning company the best in the south? Did it. Ignore the way my body trembles when I see Ryan? Epic fail. Freak out when I see a positive pregnancy test staring back at me? Complete with mascara running down my face and clutching my pearls.
Looks like things won’t go back to the way they were. There’s a man in my life that doesn’t take no for an answer. He’s the one who makes my blood run hot, cheeks turn red, and heart beat wildly within my chest. His name is Renegade.

What a way to kick off a new series. Laramie sucked me in and spat me out leaving me begging for more.
Everything in this book worked beautiful together, just the right amount of drama for a wonderful love story. The whole older woman/younger guy was refreshing but Ryan was wise beyond his years and just the perfect man.
Whitney was living the dream married and in love but then it all went down hill treated like crap and belittled at every turn she is now single and divorced. Wallowing in self pity she ends up drunk and speaking of her desires for the one man who got her heart racing on more than one occasion but was also forbidden since he was her younger brothers best friend.
Ryan 'Renegade' has a $hit start to life. Becoming best friend with Trevor saved him and when Trevor's parents took him under their wing and treated him like their own he was given a chance at a better life. Falling for Whitney was something he couldn't not do, she ticked all his boxes but he never pushed it and with Whitney being older and getting married he never thought he would get a chance.
So when Whitney offers herself to him he jumps at the chance...One night filled with fireworks and passion seem to be all that was on the cards. Ryan wants more but Whitney cant deal with that idea.
A few weeks pass and Whitney finds out she is pregnant. Learning long ago that the only person she can truly rely on is herself she decides that she can have a baby along. When Ryan finds out that Whitney is carrying his baby, he refuses to take a stand back and be pushed out. He want his baby and he wants Whitney.
Spending time together and getting to know one another is eye opening, Ryan finally gets to see what Whitney has been subjected to in the past and he will do anything to prove that she deserves the best and he is the one to provide her with everything that she has been missing AND Whitney realises that she judged Ryan to quick and that age is only really a number, he is what she has been missing and everything she wants.
With things moving fast between the couple they soon have to tell the people around them and that could prove to be a disaster!
Can this couple work together and stay together?
