A new series from the author of the Moonshine Task Force Series!

Laurel Springs, AL is about to be hotter than a mid-August thunderstorm.

When the Moonshine Task Force is absorbed into a new entity, Laurel Springs Emergency Response Team (LSERT) new faces come to town, new love is born, old love is found again, and there's a plethora of drama and romance happening all over the tri-county area. LSERT puts police, firefighters, nurses, doctors, K-9 handlers, and EMT's all in harm's way as they work to keep the area safe from any threat.

When emotions are high, passions ignite.

Come with me, back to Laurel Springs, in what's sure to be a wild ride!

Ransom Thompson

For years I've wanted two things - to be a member of the Moonshine Task Force and to be the man Stella Kepler can't live without.

One out of two isn't bad, or so I tell myself. Being the only K-9 handler for The MTF presents its own share of obstacles, but me and Rambo? We make it work. Life is status quo, until I'm called in to help with what appears to be a hostage situation and Stella is right in the middle of it.

This is my one chance, and I'm not going to blow it.

Stella Kepler

When I'm stuck in an examination room holding a hurt woman and a man with a gun, I do the only thing I can. I sneak out, call 911 and hope help comes quickly. It does.

In the form of Ransom Thompson.

He and I have known each other since we were babies. Our mother's are friends, our dad's work together, and we've always been friends.

Only, the last few months I've started to notice things. How mature he is, how alpha he can be, the chiseled six-pack, and the abundance of ink spreading across his body.

When I offer to cook him dinner for saving me, neither one of us know how that one moment will change the course of the rest of our lives.

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!

Ransom was a great 5 star read and book one in the LSERT series. If you read the Moonshine Task Force series you will love this one just as much, this is the second generation. We get so many great new characters and we see some of the favorites as well. Laramie has once again pulled me right in. I fell in love with Ransom and Rambo right along with Stella. Ransom is a K9 officer and Stella is working in a clinic. Both Stella and Ransom have grown up together, their parents are best friends. For years these two have been flirty but never went any further. When Stella faces a really scary 911 situation that Ransom responds to she realizes that she has to seize the moment. She offers to make a thank you dinner for him. Needless to say things flare up from here but they decide to keep it on the down-low for awhile. I knew we would be explosive if we ever allowed ourselves to light the fuse, but I’m not prepared for this sexy man in front of me. These two really bring it in this story. There is so much going on and the secondary characters were great, loved them all. There is a huge heart stopping twist that had me in tears. Overall this has to be one of my top favorites from Laramie, the ending was great and the epilogue was even better. I highly recommend 1-clicking and getting started today on this series. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

Oh. My. God. I’m so glad that this was my first read of 2019 and I’m honoured to have experienced a new chapter of the Laurel Springs journey. I’m always so cautious with next generation books, the amount of times there’s major plot holes. Especially when there’s pop culture references. But Laramie has flawlessly executed a Moonshine Task Force next gen love story. Ever wonder what would happen if Renegade’s daughter fell in love with Havoc’s son? Be ready for an explosion of chemistry, drama, angst, plot twists and an epic love story. Not to mention, you get to see the MTF family again, see what became of your favourite couples, and Rambo is the sweetest fictional dog ever.

This was a well written, cute story. A quick enjoyable read, about 180 pages. I will definitely read more from this author. And I loved the cover.

I absolutely freakin loved this book!!!! Ransom has always felt some sort a way about Stella but she never saw him as anything else but a friend. Stella for the past couple of months has started to notice Ransom as a man she could be interested in. He has waited patiently for Stella to notice him and once she does he isn't going to let this chance pass him by. They begin to explore their attraction and growing feelings for one another. Both of them decide to keep their relationship to themselves for now. That changes when an accident brings their secret relationship into the light. Now that everyone knows about them....can they make it work? I love their story so much....I laughed, cried, and swooned. Their story was super sweet, definitely hot, and I loved every minute of it!!! Let me tell you this....lord have mercy Ransom is one handsome devil. I have a new book boyfriend and his name is Ransom Thompson! I highly recommend this book and this series to everyone. I can't wait for the next book in the Laurel Springs Emergency Response Team series...from the quick glimpses we got its going to be a good one! Well done!!!!

There are certain books that come in to my life that remind me I’m just a seething bag of emotions. This was one of those books. A book that makes me feel so deeply and care so much about the story. Because, even having read several of the teaser excerpts for this story I was still the same bawling mess reading those scenes again this time around. There are a lot of big emotions in this book, and it’s possible they feel even bigger because I’ve followed this group of characters from before Stella and Ransom were even born. I think that’s one of the things that makes this book so very special, having the chapters where we get to see what’s happening from the parents’ point of view. I have loved this ‘family’ since Renegade’s book first came into my hands. Now I just need a couple of days… (Weeks…? Months…?) to recover from my story hangover and I’ll be ready for the next book in this series. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author.
