Havoc (Moonshine Task Force #3)

By Laramie Briscoe


When a marriage of convenience turns into the passion of a lifetime…..

Holden “Havoc” Thompson

My job as the leader of the Moonshine Task Force is my life. I eat, breathe, and sleep it. The men under my command mean the world to me. Knowing they count on my guidance has kept my demons at bay for longer than I care to admit.

The control I have over myself is an iron fist that sometimes threatens to squeeze the life out of me. What I want more than anything is to live again – let go of the hurt smothering every bit of light I have in this darkness.

I don’t expect it to come in the form of a Moonshiner’s daughter needing my protection.

Leighton Strather

My whole life has been defined by who my family is. In the state of Alabama, we’re number one with a target on our backs. The danger and prestige isn’t for me. I don’t care about the money, and I care too much about the families we’ve ruined.

My brother and my dad are proud of it. They wear their arrest records like a badge of honor. Me? I want as far away from the lifestyle as I can get.

It’s the only reason I ask Holden to marry me.

I never expect his whispered yes to cause such upheaval in my life. Even though I resist, I learn some havoc is good – and this one? It’s a whirlwind of lust, hope, and love and all I can do is let it sweep me away.


Havoc is simply fantastic and in my opinion the best so far of this 3 book series and I cannot wait for the next installment.  We were given a wonderful romantic build up along with the deepening story of the Moonshine family both Task Force and the Strathers.

Throughout this journey with the Moonshine Task Force, both Leighton and Havoc have intrigued me. Watching their interactions with sneaks of information was torture.  An integral scene for me has always been in the ambulance in book 2.

Leighton’s story and her growth as a character is one of my favorite parts of this story and the author gave her and Havoc the time to build their relationship.  Havoc and his nurturing of her as a young woman and the support he gave her was beautiful considering how she grew up.

A wonderful component of Havoc was Leighton and her brother rekindling their family connection after the drama of book 2.  I enjoyed learning more of the mystery of the Moonshine business.

An exciting development was Leighton’s co-worker and her problems at home and I look forward to seeing where her life changes with her own alpha protector.

This series is continuing to build strength, the Moonshine background is different to anything I have read and the supporting friendships provide a family base to the story.

The cover of Havoc is H.O.T. and he did not disappoint in his alpha protective ways, I cannot wait to see more of Leighton & Havoc and I hope to see babies as Leighton deserves to have a family of her own to love.
