Someone else can be the nice guy. I intend to steal her heart.
The Outlaw by Jennifer Millikin is now live!
There’s a thin line between being a hero and a villain, and I’m well aware I walk right down the middle of it. My reputation precedes me, even when I’m making a bad choice for the right reason. This is how I wind up in the back of a police car late one night.
My infamous last name keeps my record clean, with a single caveat: community service at a ranch recently purchased by Jo Shelton. I think I’d rather go to jail than serve time with the woman who has made it clear she can’t stand me, even though we used to be friends.
Despite the tense atmosphere and how she keeps me at arms’ length, I show up every day, ready to work. Quickly I learn a valuable lesson: while it’s difficult being around someone I don’t like, it’s far more difficult being around someone I find myself intensely attracted to, but cannot have.
Because Jo, the woman who’s driving me crazy with her quiet strength and beautiful face, is in a relationship. With a man who, I’d like to point out, is not out there getting his hands dirty on his girlfriend’s ranch. Possession is 9/10th’s of the law, and as far as I’m concerned, I’m currently in possession of Jo’s time and attention.
One day, the unexpected happens. Her blue eyes pierce my callused exterior, seeing deep down into a wound I work hard to hide. It’s in this moment, and so many that follow, that I become certain there’s no hope left for me. I’m in love with Jo, and I’m desperate to show her I’m someone worthy of her love in return.
Lucky for me, nobody rises to the occasion quite like an outlaw.

I love a bad boy! Wyatt…yum! A bad boy, the black sheep and all around stud. He might be my favorite Hayden man. He stacked up to be a little different than I thought. The guy has layers. Sure, he does what he wants, skirts the law and avoids a few responsibilities but he also does his best to protect the family, his friends and the town. He’s a heart throbbing dream of masculinity. There are a few really poignant moments in the story especially between Wyatt and daddy Beau. They finally have their come to Jesus moment and I gotta admit I had a few tears. This starts out with a hot encounter between Wyatt and Jo but then Wyatt does the unforgivable. It’s going to take a lot for Jo to get over the slight. But she’s been in love with him since high school so all is not lost and when he steps up for her there’s progress. His little flashbacks of hotness have him ready for a replay and the more time he spends with Jo he sees just what a fabulous woman she is. A real powerhouse of strength and resilience. Her background and family life is so sad. Oh boy, does she have a big secret that I didn’t see coming. That surprise along with the danger that pops up keeps this one exciting all the way to the end. I love this Hayden ranching family and can’t wait for Jessie’s story. There were a few elements that were strange to me and the wrap up at the end was incomplete but since Jessie was involved maybe the facts will be revealed in her story. Overall this is a terrific read with a sizzling romance, a bit of suspense and danger, and wonderful small town family and friends atmosphere. Another stellar story with a TDF sexy cowboy and a feisty heroine. I loved Wyatt and Jo together. The little outlaw moments were spectacular. Worth the read!
