RELEASE BLITZ - Cruise by Laramie Briscoe

Title: Cruise
A Moonshine Task Force Series Novel
Author: Laramie Briscoe
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 4, 2018


The kid is now a man, and he’s got something to prove…..

Caleb “Cruise” Harrison

“A Dad is a son’s first hero……”

All my life I’ve looked up to my Dad, there’s nothing I ever wanted to do more than be a member of the Moonshine Task Force right next to him. I said no to playing football professionally to stay in Laurel Springs and fulfill my dream.

I’m biding my time, paying my dues, and soaking up any bit of information my fellow MTF members slip my way. To most of them I’m the kid they watched grow up, and while they’re proud of me, they don’t take me seriously.

Life is status quo until the morning all hell breaks loose in our small town threatening everyone I know and love – including the one woman I can’t get out of my head.

Ruby Carson

“My favorite place? In his arms……”

Caleb saved me from the worst date of my life, swooping in like the fixer he is. Smiling his panty-melting grin, he grabbed my hand, and extricated me from the longest ninety minutes known in the history of the world.

Instead, he took me on the best date I’ve ever had. We’ve been inseparable since that crazy night.

It hasn’t been picture-perfect. His job is dangerous, it worries me, even when he tells me not to. One gorgeous summer day, it all comes crashing down on us.

The man who has my heart is in the middle of a FUBAR situation that has no good ending. My hope is, when the smoke clears Caleb walking towards me, arms out-stretched, with that grin on his face, before he envelopes my body into the hug only he can give.

That’s what would happen in a perfect world – but I’ve never known a perfect world – not even with Caleb……

I just saw the cover--exactly how I pictured Caleb. I've been so excited from the time I learned he was getting his own book. He is an outstanding, emotion demanding, character and I have loved him from his first mention.

His dad is in the MTF. It's all Caleb wanted to be even when he was drafted into the NFL. Turned it down to do what he had to get on the team. And he did it. Not with any special treatment. Caleb had a hard life. Great dad but when you're 16 when your son is born and you are a single parent life isn't easy for either of you.

All grown up he's watched his dad finally find a woman to complete him. A woman who gave Caleb a mother and a little sister he adores. It's his time. Or so he hopes when he meets Ruby. Stepping in the middle of the date with a real loser, Caleb ends up driving her home after her date is otherwise detained. So begins the romance.

This story takes place over a long period of time using special days and activities to mark the progression of their feelings. It's not all roses. Still, both want the same thing eventually. They want it enough to make sure before they make a commitment. There is plenty of steam. The two are a bit snarky with each other in mostly a good way. She is a strong woman and it will take that to be with a man on the Task Force. Life isn't easy or guaranteed. Can they make it through all the bad time as well as the good?

Another winner from the author. This is for sure a re-read series and one I recommend to all.

Cruise is the son of Menace. For most of Cruise’s life, it was just the two of them. Menace, AKA Mason, was a young single father both trying to raise his son, as well as grow up himself. It wasn’t always easy, Mason sacrificed a lot to do what was best for his boy. Finally, when Cruise, AKA Caleb, was a senior in High School, his dad met the perfect woman leaving Caleb to leave for college happy. He was a star athlete, picked for the pro draft, but that’s not what he wanted to do. His life long dream was to follow in his father’s footsteps, except for becoming a parent at 16. 

This is the last book in the Moonshine Task Force series and I’m glad we got to see Caleb all grown up. Ruby is a strong female character and the two together are terrific. I enjoyed this book and recommend reading it AFTER reading Menace (well all of them really). 4 stars.
