Let’s do a calendar, they said. It’ll be fun, they said.
Well, they—i.e. Kilgore Police Department’s public relations specialists—were wrong.
Now, every time Dax Tremaine walks around a corner, the women of Kilgore, Texas can’t help calling him Mr. January.
Mr. January, can you fix my flat tire? Mr. January, can you cuff me? Mr. January, can you sign my boob?
It goes from bad to worse when even on a SWAT call, the women won’t stay away.
It was the worst time of her life. Rowen Roberts had finally admitted to herself that the man she loved would never love her back. She was just fired from her job for violating client confidentiality, and to make matters worse, she’s held up at gunpoint in a convenience store where she only wanted some ice cream to help mask the pain.
The moment the gun is pressed to her forehead, she knows she has a decision to make. Follow the rules and maybe possibly live, or go down swinging where at least she can salvage just a little bit of her dignity.
And when Mr. January himself tells her to do what the gunman says, she’s had enough. Rowen has never really been a girl that does what she’s told. Mr. January won’t have to save her. She can dang well save herself.
I don’t think that Lani Lynn Vale can write a book that doesn’t leave me smiling and happy that I’ve spent time in Kilgore, TX. JUST KIDDING, the first book in her SWAT Generation 2.0 series, is a zany, sexy, feel-good time, and just what I needed to kick off my year in reading.
The thing that I love most about Lani’s books is her characters. They are just so unique, so irreverent, so take-no-prisoners that I can’t not adore them. Rowen Roberts may seem like she’s getting the short end of the deal here, but she’s a canny little thing, and more than able to hold her own with everyone from her nemesis Shondra to the fine folk of Kilgore to Mr. January himself, Mr. Dax Tremaine.
There are some moments of intrigue, good cross-over from previous LLV books, and, most importantly, a story that won my heart so completely that I can’t wait for the next book. All of Lani’s many fans know this already, but if you like your romance with plenty of sass, some laugh-out-loud moments, and just overall good times, this book is for you. Go on, grab it now, and thank me later. ❤️
