Peek Inside Whatcha Gonna Do With A Cowboy

There’s something about a cowboy, right? Exhibit A: Gunner Wilson—Pistol Rock’s resident gunslinger. He’s broad-chested, inked, with a devilish swagger that could make a nun to recant.

I’m the one welcoming trouble into our small town. And sometimes a reformed bad boy is the only thing standing between a girl and some-not-so-very-good men.

There’s something about a cowboy, right? Exhibit A: Gunner Wilson—Pistol Rock’s resident gunslinger. He’s broad-chested, inked, with a devilish swagger that could make a nun to recant. 

He moved back into my life quicker than a cold snap comes and goes in Texas. I should be concerned since Mr. Sexy Texas Ranger has put me in hot water more times than I can count. Yet we can’t keep our hands off each other. 

Folks in town say he’s bad news. I beg to differ. He’s changed. They think I should give him the boot. Rid my life of more trouble. But what they don’t know is—

I’m the one welcoming trouble into our small town. And sometimes a reformed bad boy is the only thing standing between a girl and some-not-so-very-good men.

Well, this ain't your mama's western romance that's for sure! This story is a standalone novella that continues the relationship of Gunner and Laney which began in the previous novel Pretty Reckless. You don't have to read the first one to dive into this one, but it does a great job of introducin... ...more

By Jamie July 28, 2014

I love to hate Novellas...mostly because the story is so good I hate that it's so short and this is definitely the case! This book is a great read AND it really can be read as a stand alone. Though I reccommend reading Pretty Reckless so that you can get the back story on some of the characters p... ...more

Gunner took a position in Odessa at the Ranger Office, he and Laney have been giving their relationship another go. "Gunner had many traits. He could be relaxing to be around. He could be bullheaded. He could be demanding. But most of all, he was my addiction." I adored watching their interaction... ...more

I was so excited to read an ARC of this book after reading the first book in the series, Pretty Reckless.

Even in this novella,... ...more

When I read the first book in the Laney Briggs series I was immediately hooked to the country sheriff and her sexy cowboy man.

By Dee August 12, 2014

This is my first Jodi Linton and I had a absolute ball reading it. Irreverent, possibly insane and armed with both a gun and a libido that have minds practically of their own, Laney Briggs can be fall down funny at times. The story rolls like a bite of a Stefanie Plum novel--complete with sexy he... ...more

I LOVE this series!

This is the second book in the Laney Briggs Series, and it is just as good if not better then the first! It can be read as a standalone; however, I suggest you read them both so you can get to know the characters. Deputy Laney Biggs is sassy and doesn’t back down from an argume... ...more

Laney Briggs is back with her sexy cowboy and they're naughtier than ever, "I pinched his butt cheek and felt one big tent pole into my stomach. "I don't remember asking you for a backseat quickie." His voice wickedly smooth." Panties may be needed and I'm not talking about just for the naughty s... ...more

I received this book as an ARC from the author, for an honest review.

This is the second book of Laney Briggs’ life. I enjoyed this book as much as the first.

This book is a novella, which ends way too fast for me (yes, I’m being the whinny child who wants MORE!). The book starts out with Laney wa... ...more
