Ace is saving lives and mending hearts…….
Anthony “Ace” Bailey
I’m not a rules kinda guy
Department Policy? Kinda sucks, but I do what I have to for the job that I love.
Playing it safe? Not my thing.
Married? No big deal when I know she’s unhappy and scared.
I’m one of those guys – a sniper in the military, a little bit of an adrenaline junkie, and a member of the Moonshine Task Force. I’ve lived through some shit.
My gut has never failed me. It’s my sixth-sense. Warning me of a gunshot coming my way, of a traffic stop being potentially deadly, or the tingling in the back of my neck when I go to sleep telling me I’ll be woken up by a call in the middle of the night. My gut has always kept me honest.
Like the day I walked into The Café and saw the new waitress. There was a ring on her left hand, but I didn’t care. One look in her eyes told me everything I needed to know. Her marriage wasn’t one made of love and respect. It was one made of fear and doubt.
It’s why I ignored that ring, why I arrested her husband, and the reason I’m willing to take my time. Patience is a virtue, and with this woman, I have it in spades.
Meeting Anthony Bailey changed my life. He did things that no one else has ever done for me.
Feeling safe? Never happened before.
Feeling wanted? It’s been years.
Being independent? I’m learning.
It’s foreign, not having someone question my every move, being able to eat what I want for dinner, and sitting out on my front porch talking to Anthony every night while we share a couple beers.
I try to tell myself he’s just being nice; that he’s doing his job and working within the community. The problem? The night he takes the kiss we both want, everything changes, and I can no longer deny what I feel. But it doesn’t stop me from trying – and I learn quickly that Ace knows me better than anyone else ever has – including myself.
All I can do is hang on, as he takes me on the scariest journey of my life. The one that bends us until we almost break, and ends with a happily ever after I never thought I would get.
ACE includes the wedding of a beloved couple, an appearance by Reaper, and the
continuation of EVERYONE falling in love with Caleb!

Ace is the 4th book in Laramie Briscoe’s Moonshine Task Force Series. I think this is my favorite of all the books so far. I truly loved Anthony (Ace) and Violet’s story.
I thought this was another great addition to this series. I felt it was the most emotional of the books so far. It gave us an inside look at what a woman feels and experiences after she’s been a victim of domestic violence. Now don’t get me wrong this isn’t all a downer type story….there are many happy and swoony moments. Just know this story will tear at your heartstrings also.
I was excited to read Anthony and Violet’s story since they were introduced into the series. I knew Violet’s story was going to be emotional but what I didn’t expect was how much I would love Anthony. He was so sweet and patient. I loved that he wore his heart on his sleeve. He showed Violet what a real man is like and how true love is supposed to feel.
Ace is a standalone novel told from Dual POV. You don’t have to read the other books to understand this story and to enjoy it, but to get the full experience of the Moonshine Task Force and the guys behind it, I would read this series in order. The only downside of this story to me was, that it lacked some drama, I thought it needed something to keep you on the edge of your seat. I kept waiting for that shocking moment in the story and it never really came. But even with that I loved this story.
I loved that we got the addition of some of the other characters in this story. We got to see what Leighton and Havoc have been up to and then we finally get to see a Wedding of one of the beloved previous couples. I’m not going to say who….you’ll have to read this book to find out 😉 I also liked that she set up the premise of the next book in the series….Menace. I look forward to see what happens to Mason and his son Caleb.
So if you are looking for that sweet and swoony romance with a lot of heartfelt emotion in it, then this is the book to read!!! I would recommend this story/series to all readers.
