The sexy, single dad of the MTF finally gets his turn...

Mason “Menace” Harrison

“Single and ready to mingle.”

Those are the words above every picture of almost every female that strikes my interest on this dating app my son talked me into getting. After being a single dad for seventeen years, I’m ready to spread my wings, just not with most of the co-eds who keep hitting on me and calling me daddy.

Now that Caleb’s in his senior year of high school, I feel like I can let go of the iron-clad control I’ve had on myself without his mom in our lives. I’ve enjoyed raising him, love the relationship we have, and while he went off the rails for a bit last year, we’re now closer than we’ve ever been. He’s got a full ride to the University of Alabama, and I’ve settled into my spot with the Moonshine Task Force.

But my son isn’t a substitute for a woman in my bed, he isn’t someone I can share my dreams with, and he’s not the person I want to grow old with by my side. I’m not sure who that is yet, but the smokin’ hot lady going by the name BeachBum83 is definitely holding every single bit of my interest.

Karina Holland

“Looking for a good time, maybe more…”

Those were the lamest words I ever typed in my life, but it was the best I had for the dating app my friend Violet talked me into joining. I didn’t have any high hopes for myself. As a high school teacher, I’m sick of pervy dads hitting on me when they come in to discuss their child’s lack of motivation to read the classics and apply themselves.

Until the day Mason Harrison walks into my classroom. I had no idea Caleb’s dad was the man I met off that dating app who showed me how flexible I really am in the back of his Jeep. Within minutes of him speaking to my class, he proved the sparks weren’t one-time only when we christened my desk.

Mason and Caleb? They touch a part of my heart that no one’s ever touched before, and when a threat from the past shows up, I prove just how tough I really am.

    Really enjoyed the story of Menace and Karina. It was fun, sexy and endearing. It does need a thorough edit to catch some typos and common grammar errors.

    He’s in law enforcement but it’s not all the book is about which is great. I loved the older man - younger woman theme. Will read again!

    Laramie Briscoe is a new author to me. Menace is a part of a series, but this book can be read as a stand alone. I really liked the love story of Mason and Karina. The relationship between Mason and his son Caleb had me weepy. It was great to see a father-son relationship that was strong and unafraid to show emotions. The steamy scenes fit with the plot of the story and were hot! I wish this book had an epilogue.

  • What a great Story!

    By sbsbrinson
    The characters are great and the storyline is very good as well. Sometimes it a bit to much in the sex scenes but overall a great read!

    This was so predictable! There was only 1 bad and shady guy for the whole book. There wasn’t a balance between the personal climax between the characters and the plot progression. The last 30 pages the team finally arrested the guy. The author didn’t build up the bad guys character enough to fear him. There was no hardships between the two characters as they navigated their new relationship. The skipping months was annoying since there was many big time gaps.

    Absolutely Brilliant!!! I have read all the Moonshine Taskforce Books and I have to admit I have been waiting for Menace’s story. He is a single dad that has devoted his entire life to raising his son. A son that had his mother walk out on him when he was 2 and never look back. A son that was born when Menace himself was just sixteen. But raise him he did and they both turned into fine men (which we know via the first book in the series). But this book gives us a lot of the details of the life Menace has had for the past 18 years with Caleb but concentrates on the present. Now that Caleb is a senior in high school it’s time for Menace to have a personal life and hopefully find someone to spend the lonely nights with. But where does a guy in his early 30’s meet a good woman in a small town. Well according to Caleb you sign up on a dating app.; so that is just what Menace does. However only one reply (out of a lot of replies) catches his eye. But after a whopper of a first date she ghosts him, and Menace has no idea who she is, only that her first name is Katrina and he want to see her again. Ms. Briscoe has totally outdone herself on this one. Her flare for storylines with romance, suspense, thrills and humor shine in Menace. I found myself, smiling, laughing, sighing, worrying and even tearing up a few times as I read this book. The book is funny, sexy and exciting! It’s definitely a 5 star read in a 5 star series. I highly recommend both the Moonshine Taskforce series and Menace and I am super exciting and anxiously awaiting Caleb’s story.
