Peek Inside Pretty Lawless


Happily ever afters are for wimps. At least that’s what I tell myself. Although, when you expect a proposal from your longtime boyfriend and instead watch him arrest your best friend—diamond size becomes a moot point.


Yep, Laney’s gonna have my hide. Especially when she finds out how much I’ve been keeping from her.

I’ll break every rule in the book to prove to Laney I’m the best man for the job.

Happily ever afters are for wimps. At least that’s what I tell myself. Although, when you expect a proposal from your longtime boyfriend and instead watch him arrest your best friend—diamond size becomes a moot point. 

This time not even that sinfully delicious swagger will be enough to save Gunner Wilson from my shit list. 


Yep, Laney’s gonna have my hide. Especially when she finds out how much I’ve been keeping from her. 

Mafia? Check. Corrupt cops. Check. Fake arrests. Check. Check

It looks bad. I know. 

But I love my girl. I’ve made some mistakes. Damn right, I have. But everything I’ve done was to protect her.             

I’ll break every rule in the book to prove to Laney I’m the best man for the job.

Jodi closes the book on Laney & Gunner with Pretty Lawless. I gotta admit, I was bummed. NOT with the book, but with the end of my favorite two gun totin, boot wearin couple.

WOW!!! This book was outstanding, I loved Laney and Gunner in this book and how you got their POV on what they were feeling.
