    I need more MTF and I need it now!

    The book can't be over already. I'm not ready to let go of "Havoc" and Leighton to go back to my everyday life. I need more MTF and I need it now! This was such a fantastic book. It may be about a couple with a bit of an age difference, but other than the few times that ages are actually mentioned, I never noticed that there was anything significant about the difference. Leighton has been through so much negative life experience that she's wise beyond her years and carries herself as someone older than she is. Holden is so calm and grounded, that he's the perfect antidote to her upbringing. I loved watching these two learn how to fall in love with each other. Seeing them let down their walls and allow each other inside their defences, learning how to be honest and vulnerable with each other was a special joy. I can't wait for the next book; to catch up with the couples we've come to know and love already and to see the next MTF tough guy fall in love with his perfect match. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book.

    Loved havoc

    How can u not fall in love with this book? Another amazing moonshine task force book. Leighton and Havoc start a relationship based of her needing protection then slowly turned into something else. A$$ backwards relationship which couldn't of been any better for these two.

    My favorite MTF yet!

    Havoc is the third book in the Moonshine Task Force (MTF) series and it just keeps getting better. This book has the older man younger woman trope with a little hint of forbidden love written in, as Holden is the leader of MTF and Leighton is the daughter of the most wanted moonshiner in the state. Leighton grew up the only daughter in a family with a moonshine legacy. Their family of all males are abusive, cold, ruthless and only have one thing that’s important to them and that’s the moonshine and what they can profit out of it. Leighton was very close to her younger brother growing up, but that bond is tested when he goes to jail for causing the accident that almost killed Tank in book two. Their father drilled into their heads that their mother ran off when they were young because they were terrible kids and she didn’t want to be a mother. Leighton longed to have a caring mother to take care of her and her brother and always wondered where she was. Will she ever find out what really happened? Holden met Leighton when he came to their home to talk with their father when Leighton was just a teenager. Leighton was smitten with the handsome and rugged law man. Years later their paths cross again in a bar when Leighton’s friends give her a dare to kiss the first man that walks through the door. Leighton took the bet and fate would have it that Holden was the first one through that door. She walked up to him and laid an amazing kiss on him that neither one could forget. Leighton hated being a part of their family’s moonshine business and wanted to escape and make something of her life. She worked on the family’s books because she was good with numbers and was able to squirrel away money hiding it in the ledgers until one day her father caught on. He beat her up and she was able to escape and vowed never to return. Blaze saw her and treated her for her injuries, but Blaze also called Holden so he was aware of the situation. Holden arrived and after they discussed what happened he offered Leighton to take her home and live with him, under his protection until they figured something out. That turned out to be a marriage of convenience, that really wasn’t so convenient, if you get my drift. The attraction was already there. I won’t give away any more of the story. This is my favorite so far in the MTF. I loved Holden and Leighton’s characters and their development throughout the story. There was a lot of sexual tension and slow build to their relationship. Their chemistry was off the charts! The secondary characters were strong and provided great support for the couple. There was a terrific mystery going on with the moonshine and with new characters that were introduced. The pace and flow of the book was on point. This book can be read as a standalone, but to really enjoy the richness of the characters, start from the beginning! I can’t wait for the next book!

    My favourite MTF man so far, *insert swoon here*

    I have a process with review writing wherein I usually wait at least a few hours after finishing a book before I start my review, and I don’t read another book Between because I don’t like to take from my initial reaction. However, I finished Havoc twenty minutes ago and I was itching to get started on my review… Laramie Briscoe genuinely surprises me with every book in this series, reading Renegade I felt myself fascinated with Ryan and the unconditional care he shows for Whitney, in awe of the topics Laramie raised, and rooting for them every step of the way, reading Tank I was immersed in the world on my kindle, completely invested and in love with Trevor and Blaze, but Havoc? There’s no comparison. I powered through Holden and Leighton’s story because I just couldn’t put it down! It’s a completely addictive, passionate, slow burn romance that had my breath catching with the pure beauty of it. I have so much respect for how Laramie characterises Leighton, the emotional scars she still carries from her abuse, from the abandonment of her mother and the feelings of letting down her brother, her childhood best friend, the only person who loved her for a very long time… It made my heart ache at the pain and loss she’d experienced in her short life but it made me actually admire Briscoe’s and her writing more because she was addressing these issues and the darkness of our world with honesty, there wasn’t any victim blaming from those who care for Leigh, there wasn’t any part of Leigh’s or Holden’s suffering that was romanticised thankfully, and a huge part of the love story was these two beautiful people learning to love themselves and not let their pasts define them. Leighton is a 24 year old woman who grew up in a household of abusive, illegal moonshine manufacturers. What I found so amazing and inspirational about her is that she never loses that sense of self, even when she isn’t really sure who she is, she’s loyal to that person. And escaping her father’s fists and cruel words helps her to reach her full potential and really become that person. No doubt her past will leave some permanent scars as trauma never truly goes away, just like the trauma from Holden’s time at war. However, she becomes a confident woman and her past suffering seems to have made her kind, empathetic and understanding, the kind of person that will reach out to anyone in need and help anyway she believes she can. With the help of Holden, the MTF men and their partners, and her colleagues at The Café, Leighton learns how to love and trust, she learns the true meaning of family and appreciates it every day. It is beautiful to see her get her happy. Holden, what can I say about this man? He’s intelligent, dedicated, ambitious, determined, hardworking, moral, and intensely, unconditionally loyal. He’s also vulnerable, suffering in his own way, having closed himself off from love due to the intense, irrational fear of losing that love, or having it be unrequited. While on the surface we see Holden protecting, helping and nurturing Leighton, it’s actually very much a two way street. She helps him in ways neither are entirely aware of and I love that, how her trust, love and acceptance brings him back to himself. And have I mentioned the chemistry these two have? It’s explosive! This book will grip you from start to finish in classic Laramie Briscoe fashion, making you crave more. More books, more love stories for these Moonshine Task Force men (seriously I can’t wait for Ace’s and Menace’s stories). The holy crap event that happens was heart wrenching, terrifying and had me in tears at the beginning of an 8 hour flight. Thanks for that Briscoe, that wasn’t embarrassing at all… Now there’s only one question left: can a marriage of convenience ever become something more? Something real?
