Title- Pretty Shamless
Author- Jodi Linton
Publisher- Entangled Publishing
The only rules she follows are her own…
Wherever deputy Laney Briggs goes, trouble always follows behind—except when Laney is the trouble. Right now, Laney is on the hunt for her not-so-bright cousin, who is wanted for gun smuggling. But there’s a sexy, hot-assed Texas Ranger on the same case, and Laney would bet her britches (and everything else she’s wearing) that Gunner Wilson knows something she doesn’t. It just requires a bit of sexy espionage…
Gunner knows all too well just how damned distracting Laney and her little red cowboy boots can be. The pure, unadulterated want between them has never been stronger—and Gunner can’t resist making her crazy. But even as she gives into every carnal craving for Gunner, Laney is determined to get her answers, one mind-meltingly hot night at a time. The only question is whether she’ll be ready for the truth…
I had a little trouble getting through this book. I am not sure if it was the fact that I never read any of the other books I this series or that it was not what I expected it to be. I love mystery and suspenseful book, but I felt there wasn’t that much if it in this book. I felt as though the elements of this were over shadowed by all the characters lust for one another. Not to mention I wasn’t too sure was going on with Laney’s cousin, nothing was really explained. All I knew was he was in a lot of trouble, but unclear on what kind of trouble.
As for the characters I felt little for their relationship. It felt that it was all about lust between Laney and Gunner. They never were able to have a full conversation and when they tried it just turned into sex. There was one scene where Gunner opened up to Laney and I truly enjoyed that part.
I do not think this was a bad book by all means, it just wasn’t for me. I know that a lot of readers will enjoy this novel, but I do recommend reading the first installment before the second.
