Baby. Don’t let the name fool you.

Being Linear Tactical's easiest-going younger brother has never been a problem for Baby Bollinger. He likes people. He likes laughing. He likes life.

But he has secrets buried deep under his charming smile that would change everything.

Quinn Harrison-Pritchard doesn’t have secrets. What she does have is a big mess of a life that's painfully public.

Jobless. Blacklisted. Broke. Alone. Exactly where nobody wants to be as they hit their 39th birthday.

Oak Creek is supposed to be a fresh start. A chance to lick her wounds and figure out a plan. One that doesn’t include Baby Bollinger. But the vigorous, mouth-watering mechanic—anything but a baby—is pursuing her with a single-minded focus.

And doesn’t seem to care that she’s twelve years his senior.

But danger has followed Quinn to Oak Creek, someone from her past who is convinced she’s wronged him. And that she needs to pay with her life.

Only Baby can save her. But to do so, he’ll have to face the secrets he’s let define him for way too long. And resurrect the warrior buried inside.


My favorite hero yet! With book nine in her always exciting Linear Tactical series Janie Crouch brings the sweetest guy around to the forefront in BABY. The characters were easy to connect with from the very start, the intrigue was light but pointed and their chemistry was out of this world. A bit of a rushed ending, but I loved their story!

Quinn Harrison-Pritchard has us on her side the moment we hear what she’s been going through as her world crumbles around her. She’s self-assured even when things are looking bleak, and watching her fall for this younger man who seems intent to have her even though she’s no catch at the moment is heartwarming.

Blake “Baby” Bollinger is the epitome of a nice guy! He’s sweet, he’s sincere and he’s just down right kindhearted. Deadlines are looming in his life that make him have to out his secrets when it’s not something that he normally likes to do, but getting to that happily ever after counts on it.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who likes high action plots filled with a close-knit group of family and friends who always have each others back no matter the circumstance. Lots of action and suspense are always guaranteed.
