Works alone. His one love—besides starting a good brawl—is sitting on a rinky-dink stage in a backwoods bar playing guitar and singing about things he’ll never have.When a video of him playing goes viral, Gibson ignores the unwanted attention.

    Highball Rush is book six in the Bootleg Springs series by Claire Kingsley and Lucy Score. At long last, it’s the final book. The book with all the answers and the book with Gibson Bodine’s story. I never thought about it before but it is fitting that Gibson’s book was saved for last. Gibson was the oldest of the Bodine siblings. He is thirty three years old. He’s the one that got the worst of growing up in a dysfunctional household. Now ...

    "I'll give you what you need, darlin'." --Gibson BodineI'm not easily persuaded when it comes to my sexy, grumpy heroes. I always want the woman to be worthy of their bleeding hearts, and Gibson Bodine is no exception. He may be the posterboy for brooding heroes, and would rather everyone just let him be, but he's also talented, humble, and very protective of his family and friends. All amazing qualities that would serve you well in a town like B...

    Just in case you need to know a little something about Gibson Bodine...And if you want to know a little something about the leading lady...I've never been more satisfied with a series ending book than I am right now. I just can't even begin to tell you how many feels I experienced while reading this book. Gibson Bodine is the grumpy Bodine. But I swear he's a lovable grumpy. You just want to pull him into a hug and never let go. But you won't do ...

    I'm still reeling a bit that the series is over. All the loose ends have been tied and all the Bodines (and lots of other people) got their HEAs. But I'll miss them, for sure. Gruff Gibson met his match and found out he had a heart there all along. It was just buried under too much past. The townsfolk showed once again that they protect their own- whether through Bootleg Justice, or love. Stray animals and stray people found their place. And the ...

    Y'all. Seriously, this book is E V E R Y T H I N G. Highball Rush is book six in the Bootleg Springs series and gives us the story of the oldest Bodine sibling, Gibson. We also get the whole highly-anticipated story that we've been following throughout the series--what actually happened to Callie Kendall, the girl that mysteriously went missing from this small town thirteen years ago.Gibson Bodine was absolutely everything I wanted him to be and ...

    The sweet evening around the campfire after a full day of whitewafter raftingLucy Score and Claire Kingsley have broken new ground with this version of a co-write, and I for one am a huge fan. Throughout the books, the quality was top notch, and I could not discern any major differences, each book was a standout on its own, and as a series, it was amazing. Waiting to find out the resolution to ALL the secrets harboured in this small town, surroun...

    A perfect ending to an amazing series.Highball Rush was everything I expected it to be and so much more. I've been waiting for Gibson's story since the first installment. His story was begging to be told from the very beginning, and Claire didn't disappoint. I've been a Bootleg Springs fan since the beginning. Waiting for these stories to come has been the most beautiful form of torture. Lucy and Claire have exceeded my expectations with each rel...

    Wow, just wow! Claire and Lucy have really outdone themselves with this series of books. They created a world that you just want to go visit and live there. The characters feel soo real and well created that I am sad that I will not hear from them again...(unless they write more to this wonderful town)!!!This final installation of the series clears up all the questions you have throughout the series. I will not give away any of the answers as you...

    Holy smokes - Highball Rush...….how frickin' amazing was this story y'all?? Gibson's story was totally worth the wait and the best way to end the Bootleg Springs series! From his broodiness and growling, to seeing him soften up and fall in love with the girl that stole his heart (when he calls her love, swoon!) - Highball Rush is pure perfection from start to finish. I laughed and cried and smiled my way through this story that will steal a lit...

    From the very start, Claire Kingsley and Lucy Score created pure magic with the Bootleg Spring series and I have to say, they have outdone themselves in Highball Rush! I have been in awe of their writing since Whiskey Chaser and have loved EVERY minute of this series!Highball Rush is the conclusion to this amazing series and the ladies definitely saved the best for last! Gibson Bodine is one hell of an uptight guy with good reason. However, throu...

    The Bootleg Series. When I first found this series, I was knee deep in my husbands deployment. He had just left and I was home trying to figure out life again, sans husband. Just me and my two kiddos trying to figure out how to manage when it was just us. Books became my escape from the monotonous everyday that is life while your other half is deployed.Enter Whiskey Chaser. Holy freaking Hannah. I had read both Lucy and Claire prior to this book ...

Leaving me sated, smiling, and happy!If you were ever on the fence about the town of Bootleg Springs, I promise after reading this you will have formed a solid opinion on the townsfolk down to the animals that run freely.All those questions that have been building u...

    It felt like Christmas morning when I woke up today to find Gibson Bodine's story on my Kindle (I received it as an ARC). Gibson has intrigued me from the beginning and I have been waiting for his story - and the conclusion of the Callie Kendall case - since book 1. Let me tell you, this 1000% did not disappoint. It was everything I had hoped it would be. Thank you, Lucy and Claire, for giving us this wonderful series!

    Highball Rush - the final installment in the Bootleg Springs series - is EVERYTHING! Romance, mystery, suspense, danger, music, dancing, plot twists, family, friends, enemies, humor, sexy-time, Bootleg Justice, and a very happy ever after are all in this book. It has been a couple of days since I finished Highball Rush. I usually want to post my reviews immediately after reading a book so that my thoughts are fresh as to what transpired. Not so w...

    If you have been anxiously and not so patiently waiting for Gibson's story, you will NOT be disappointed! I love broody alpha heroes, and with his gravelly voice and grumpy demeanor, Gibson is one of the best I've ever read. Lucy and Claire have done such a seamless job of telling this family saga without any hiccups that might be expected when two authors share a series from opposite sides of the country. The town of Bootleg Springs is the main ...

    The grand finale to the Bootleg Springs series. While each of the 6 books can stand alone, they have an underlying mystery (Or 2) that is resolved here.This book is like the fireworks at the end of the night. Flashy, exciting and constantly surprising. The characters are wonderful, the dialogue perfection.The storyline is well developed and the ending is so well done. It leaves me wanting to visit Bootleg and sit in the hot springs awhile. Thanks...

    The grumpy broody eldest Bodine. The mysterious angry brother that left everyone wanting more before we even knew what more was. Gibson Bodine was just about everything you expected; a grumpy man of few words and even fewer emotions. But, in Highball Rush, we learned he is so much more than that. He’s loving, caring, protective, sexy, oh so freaking sexy, and behind that wall of anger is the biggest heart filled with more love that you could im...

    Brava Ladies. I LOVED THIS SERIES WITH MY WHOLE HEART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I loved this book so much but also, Thank you, because Bootleg Springs has imprinted big time on my heart!In an effort to keep from spoiling anything, this is all you'll get out of me, but 100% this book, aside from whatever else was happening, was very well written and my heart is all the things!!!

    If I could give this book more than 5* then I would! I loved everything about it! Infact I loved the whole series! The build up in the first 5 books to what actually happened to Callie is so good, little snippets of information but nothing too much! The evidence that keeps building against Jonah Snr. Building the hype up for the finale, and let me tell you, you will not be disappointed!Gibson is a grumpy person, his family know it, the whole town...

    First and foremost go read books 1-5 of the Bootleg Springs series! This small town romance/mystery set in West Virginia is a collaborative endeavor by Lucy Score and Claire Kingsley. Their writing skills alone are fabulous so you can not only imagine but actually read their combined genius in these stories. Each addition to the series brings us another couple's HEA while also providing nuggets and clues about the missing persons case of Callie K...

    I can’t write many details without spoiling the storyline, but I can say this: Claire Kingsley and Lucy Score are brilliant storytellers. And this book and this hero are the moonshine soaked cherry on top. I knew Gibson would be my favorite, but I had no idea I would love him this much.I personally started reading romance as a way to avoid the political climate; where the vitriol of trolls, pundits, news networks, and my crazy uncles had become...

    The final book in this series is AMAZING! All of the twists and turns in the plot are answered and some I guessed, but others were complete surprises. I love the way Lucy Score and Claire Kingsley worked together to make this happen. I have been holding my breath waiting to read this book and it did not disappoint in any way. I don’t want to give anything away, but I strongly urge you to be ready to not do anything else once you start this book...

    Highball Rush, Book 6 of 6 of the Bootleg Springs series, is everything I had hoped it would be and more. Much more. Although most books in a series can be read as a standalone, I encourage you NOT to do that with Highball Rush. This book is so cleverly crafted from two of my favorite authors, Lucy Score and Claire Kingsley and not one detail was left to chance. The time they took to plan each and every character, and their foresight, is evidence...

    From the very beginning of this series the reader falls head over heels in love with all of the characters in Bootleg Springs especially the Bodine family. Between reconnecting with past loves, finding new loves and making connections that last lifetimes every book in the series was better than the last. With that being said, once again I wish I could rate this with more than 5 stars. Every chapter had me wanting more, every character was beautif...

    What happens when two amazingly talented authors join their creative talents and craft a six books, small town sibling series? Pure. Magic. I’m all over the place with my emotions now that the Bootleg Springs series has concluded with Highball Rush. I’m ecstatic and on cloud nine, but also having very bittersweet thoughts. I will miss them terribly. Highball Rush ties everything up and that’s all I’m going to say about that! If you haven...

    So this is finally the end of a smashing series. Who would have guessed that things at the end, turned out in such a remarkable way. In my opinion, I have the feeling that this book was the most difficult one to write among the others, firstly because Gibson is not a very easy character, with his grumpy and reclusive attitude but mostly the authors have had the hard task to unravel the mystery of Callie Kendall. I won’t be leaving any spoilers ...
