Peek Inside Pretty Shameless

The second I ran into Gunner Wilson and his outrageously cocky attitude at my cousin’s shooting range, I considered us a team. Then he played dumb about a duffel bag full of money, my cousin’s whereabouts, and the freaking case he’d been working. 

I know just how damned distracting Gunner can be. Trust me. The pure, unadulterated want between us has never been stronger—and it seems Gunner is pulling all the punches to drive me crazy.

But as they say—“You can’t pick your family”—and I’ll be damned if I’m going to let one of them take heat for a crime they didn’t commit.

This case means war.

The second I ran into Gunner Wilson and his outrageously cocky attitude at my cousin’s shooting range, I considered us a team. Then he played dumb about a duffel bag full of money, my cousin’s whereabouts, and the freaking case he’d been working.  

Now, I’d bet my britches (and everything else I’m wearing) that my sexy, hot-assed Texas Ranger is lying about my cousin’s real involvement in the local gun smuggling ring.  

I know just how damned distracting Gunner can be. Trust me. The pure, unadulterated want between us has never been stronger—and it seems Gunner is pulling all the punches to drive me crazy. He’s good, I’ll hand him that. 

But as they say—“You can’t pick your family”—and I’ll be damned if I’m going to let one of them take heat for a crime they didn’t commit. 

This case means war.

Pretty Shameless
is the second full-length novel and fourth release in the Deputy Laney Briggs series by author Jodi Linton. The saying "You can't choose your relatives" is pretty apt when it comes... ...more

Laney and her red cowboy boots are at it again in Pretty Shameless. I got some of my best one liners from Pretty Shameless. Even had my mom laughing at them – if it’s got tires or testicles it’s going to give you trouble was one of the best ones.

Laney is chasing down her errant cousin who has sk... ...more

Book 2 PRETTY SHAMELESS is a continuation of Deputy Laney Briggs, her hot Texas Ranger boyfriend, Gunner Wilson, her dim-wit cousin Wyatt and of course Luke Wagner, who I haven't quite figured out yet. I think Jodi wants to keep me in suspense longer about him...LOL..There's shooting, bombs, argu... ...more

By Patricia December 30, 2014

Laney is one sassy & strong character with one sexy Texas Ranger she can call her own. Yet aftet finishing this book I'm not ashamed to admit i'm more than a little confused.
I won't go into detail because the ending leaves us with some major questions.
And for me the one I'm honing in on is th... ...more

Gunner is slowly learning how to weasel his way out of the doghouse with his woman, "no," he replied, defensively. "Okay, fine. I should've called. I know that much. And let me say I'm sorry I didn't answer any of your texts." He also is all charm, "yep." His slow, lazy grin widened, sending my l... ...more

By Veronica January 11, 2015

Laney Briggs is the heroine I’ve been waiting for. She’s great at her job, has a hot Texas Ranger at her heels, and can throw out quick witted comebacks better than the entire cast of Saturday Night Live. She’s not whiny or snarky, just a woman on a mission. Sometimes it involves her case, and so... ...more

Loved this book! This installment is action-packed with lots of mystery and suspense. Laney Briggs is awesome! Sassy, funny, strong, outspoken. Someone you would want to have as your friend.

This is the second full length Laney Briggs book and I loved it. It kept me guessing until the end and after. I love the story of Laney and Gunner. They have a very bumpy relationship, especially with him being a Texas Ranger and keeping things from Laney. This story has Laney looking for her not... ...more

By Staci December 28, 2014

Another great Deputy Laney Briggs novel. The sex scenes between Laney and her boyfriend Gunner are so beyond hot. There's another mystery in Pistol Rock that Laney has to solve because it involves her no good cousin Wyatt. The story is very well written with many twists and turns. The ending left... ...more

Pretty Shameless Excerpt


“Come on, Gunner. You can trust me,” I purred, my voice sounding like a Hooters waitress laying the charm on thick to get a big fat tip.

I had one hand toying with the hem of his snug black T-shirt, my hips grinding into his Wranglers. The way that zipper fly was b...

Laney's super unique voice is back! And so is the drama, AND her mama! Lol!!!!

By Charlie January 01, 2015

Deputy Laney Briggs is one tough cookie and I absolutely love her character and her sassyness. Her boyfriend, Ranger Gunner Wilson, well he is definitely hot, but he is one cocky and arrogant a**. In this book Laney and Gunner are thrown into a situation involving her cousin Wyatt. And at every t... ...more

By Pat January 06, 2015

Deputy Sheriff Laney Briggs is quite a pistol! Feisty, foul mouthed and good at her job. Her one weakness? Texas Ranger Gunner Wilson the love of her life. But keeping secrets is not good for relationships!
Full review to follow.

I received a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here it is. Deputy Laney Briggs is at it again. Along with her sexy cowboy boyfriend Texas Ranger Gunner Wilson. They are after her cousin Wyatt, who stole guns from Willie, the local bad guy. Each has their own secrets that t... ...more

By Donna January 09, 2015

I’ll admit to not being a big Gunnar fan. I think he treats Laney poorly. He knows she is hooked on him and uses that for their mutual sexual gratification but outside the sexual arena he treats her like she doesn’t have a brain. As for Laney it is true that pickings of decent single men in her a... ...more

Another adventure for Laney courtesy of her crazy cousin Laney needs to locate her cousin and Gunner knows more about that then he's letting on.

By Denise January 11, 2015

It is always enjoyable to return to one of your favorite characters when the next novel comes out in the series. Laney is a character that is not easily forgotten with alot of spitfire to her nature. In a place where males think they rule she does have her work cut out for her. This time her fami... ...more

By Laura January 12, 2015

Awesome Series!
Pretty Shameless is part of the Deputy Laney Briggs Series, and these books keep getting better and better. They can be read as a standalone, but I encourage you to read them all, they are worth reading. Deputy Laney Briggs is a sass talking country girl and trouble seems to follow... ...more

By Veronica January 30, 2015

I reviewed my personal copy of this book for Wicked Reads.

This series gets better with each book/novella and Pretty Shameless is the best by far. Laney has to deal with her cousin getting in trouble with the law, solve a murder and deal with her every confusing relationship with her hot boyfriend... ...more
