Pretty Reckless : Review

Pretty Reckless (Deputy Laney Briggs #1)
by Jodi Linton

Welcome to Pistol Rock, Texas where everyone knows secrets last about as long as the sporadic west Texas rain showers.

Laney Briggs has long been considered reckless by the denizens of her hometown, but she’s finally turned it all around—she’s happily engaged to the local veterinarian and she’s become a Pistol Rock deputy sheriff. Everything’s fine and dandy—until a dead body turns up and her ex, Texas Ranger Gunner Wilson, decides to stick his boots into the town’s first murder case. Of course, the troublesome cowboy’s rugged good looks and T-shirt-straining muscles are already leaving Laney knee-deep in hot water, but she’ll be damned if she lets Gunner trample all over her turf. She’s decided that, instead of conflict, she wants a contented, steady life with her vet—a life in which Gunner Wilson and his seemingly endless ability to undermine her resolve and her libido plays no part. Still, it’s hard to keep her head as forbidden sparks ignite and suspicions arise between old rivals and old flames. And when the bodies start to pile up, Laney has to ask the lethal bad boy for a hand—and a truce in exchange for his help. But after uncovering the pack of lies surrounding not only her job but her heart… Having an ex-boyfriend as an ally might not be the best idea, but it’s certainly the most reckless, and Laney has always been pretty reckless…
My Review
Laney has always been the wild and crazy girl in town. She has turned her life around is a deputy sheriff and engaged to a great guy. Her life should be simple an happy but it gets turned around when her ex Gunner shows back up. He is a Texas Ranger and on the trail of a drug ring. It seems to have come to the town od Pistol Rock and he is going to stop it. Now they have to work together to figure things out before more bodies turn up. Working together is bad because they still have many feelings between them and many don't want them back together.
Laney is so amazing. She is tough, doesn't back down is sexy yet she still has a few faults that make her seem so real. She is confused on her feelings and she has many thoughts run through her head that you can really connect with. Gunner is a very sexy cowboy who will do anything to stop bad guys and try to get Laney to give him another chance. He tries to make up for his past mistakes and at times he can be a smart ass but he sure does make you laugh.
Dead people, dead cows, drug dealers and so much more are in this delightful book. I was hooked from page one and wanted so much more. I am glad to see it is a series as I want more of Laney. There is tons of danger and you don't know who to trust but Laney never gives up. She keeps digging with Gunner's help to figure it out even when she is getting beat up and sometimes worse. She seems to have a great fiancé everyone thinks is so great but even h has a past. Gunner messed up years ago and Laney made him pay for it. I love how they react to each other. Gunner wants to help Laney and tries his best to show her he is the man for her. Laney is trying to be less reckless but finds it hard to do at times. Her mom and fiancé think the know what is best for her and try in many ways to run her life. She has to show everyone she may be reckless but she is also a great cop who is out to stop the bad guys. If you like a character you can really enjoy who faces down danger and has lots of spice be sure to read this one.
