Mason “Menace” Harrison

“Single and ready to mingle……”

Those are the words above every picture of almost every female that strikes my interest on this dating app my son talked me into getting. After being a single dad for seventeen years, I’m ready to spread my wings, just not with most of the co-eds who keep hitting on me and calling me daddy.

Now that Caleb’s in his Senior year of high school, I feel like I can let go of the iron-clad control I’ve had on myself without his Mom in our lives. I’ve enjoyed raising him, love the relationship we have, and while he went off the rails for a bit last year, we’re closer than we’ve ever been. He’s got a full ride to the University of Alabama, and I’ve settled into my spot with the Moonshine Task Force.

But my son doesn’t warm my bed, he isn’t someone I can share my dreams with, and he’s not the person I want to grow old with by my side. I’m not sure who that is yet, but the smokin’ hot lady going by the name BeachBum83 definitely has every single bit of my interest.

Karina Holland

“Looking for a good time, maybe more…..”

Those were the lamest words I ever typed in my life, but it was the best I had for the dating app my friend, Violet talked me into joining. I didn’t have any high hopes for myself. As a High School English teacher, I’m sick of pervy Dad’s hitting on me when they come in to discuss their child’s lack of motivation to read the classics and apply themselves.

Until the day Mason Harrison walks into my classroom. I had no idea Caleb’s Dad was the man I met off that dating app who showed me how flexible I really am in the back of his Jeep. Within minutes of the parent/teacher conference he proved the sparks weren’t one-time only when we christened my desk.

Mason and Caleb? They touch a part of my heart that no one’s ever touched before, and when a threat from the past shows up, I prove just how tough I really am.

My Thoughts:

Please read the Foreword.  It can be considered a letter to the reader about the book and the series.  But don’t think that it will hint at starting the series from the beginning.  I did not find that anything was missing by missing a few of the other books.  But that’s not to say that I wouldn’t go back to see what I may have missed.

I read the beginning of this book a little differently.  What was different is that I read the Blurb in two parts.  Before we’re introduced to the first main character, Mason “Menace” Harrison, I read his blurb introduction.  Let’s just say that he was a surprise right from the beginning.  One thing that I kept waiting for, as I discovered more about him as the story goes on, was how he got his nickname.  Maybe that’s where having read the other parts of the series may have come into play.  But he is certainly not someone that I think “Menace” when all I can think of is just a giant teddy bear.  I thought he was very good at describing things around him.  Or as if we were hanging out together.

Then when I get into the Prologue I will read the second part of the Blurb.  Karina “Rina” Holland is ready to change her single status.  She has one of the toughest jobs but she takes it all in stride.  Some may consider Caleb a protagonist.  He is an integral part in bringing two opposites together.  It was nice to see how much he cares about his parent and has a great head on his shoulders.  I look forward to getting to know more about him and when I got to the end of the story it was a pleasure to find out that I don’t have to wait too long for that to happen.  I will say that I thought I would see more of a task force involvement than I did.  Over ninety percent of this story was something that would make you feel good and watch two people fall in love.  There was some action and adventure but I don’t know if it was enough to think of as being a romantic suspense story.  But it was definitely romantic and steamy.
