New Release + Release Blitz: Joke’s On You by Lani Lynn Vale

Release Date: June 9

Booth Pena definitely didn’t make the smartest of decisions when he was a teenager.
At eighteen, he knocked a girl up and signed up for the military all in the same day—signing his life away in more ways than one. Fast forward six weeks and he’s in bootcamp learning that he’s going to be a father while also learning that not only is he going to be deployed, but it’s going to stay that way for a year.
There weren’t a lot of things that the baby’s mother and he saw eye to eye on after that. He honestly wasn’t sure why he even slept with her in the first place.
Okay, that last part is a lie. He knows exactly why he slept with her. Because the real woman he’s in love with, her twin sister, Dillan, won’t give him the time of day.
Five years later, and he still wants her.
Now he’s home for good, being the best father and police officer that he can be, and still he’s not good enough.
Dillan Davidsdottir hated Booth Pena. Immensely.
She hated him because he slept with her sister, then left. Granted, she knew that he hadn’t meant to leave like he did, unknowingly and unconsciously leaving his son behind, but that didn’t change the fact that he had.
Five years later, and she still dislikes him just as much now as she did when he chose the wrong sister to take to his bed.
Maybe if he’d chosen her, her heart wouldn’t be broken, and his wouldn’t be untouchable.
But when a SWAT officer sees his life flash before his eyes, and decides that enough is enough, what’s a girl to do?
Give in, that’s what.

Tracey’s Review
Okay, so, the stories in the SWAT Generation 2.0 series by author Lani Lynn Vale are what I would call offbeat. That’s to say that the characters are quirky, that more goes on in the little town of Kilgore, TX, than I can manage to keep up with, and that there is no shortage of shenanigans afoot. Readers of the previous books in the series knew going in to JOKE’S ON YOU the premise of the story. The groundwork had been well-laid by the author, and this book answered all of the questions that we had about the crazy mixed-up relationship between the Pena brothers and the Davidsdottir sisters.

There’s never been a question that Booth Pena hooked up with the wrong Davidsdottir sister. He’d had it bad for Dillan for forever, which made him choosing Dillan’s twin sister, Delanie, as a baby mama a great big “What?!” But this is where JOKE’S ON YOU gets down to business…we knew the what, just not the why of the situation, and Lani Lynn gives us all of the deets in this story, and in a way that made perfect Kilgore, TX, sense to me.

I always enjoy these books precisely because they are a little bit, well, wacky, and jam-packed with action, a little bit of mystery, and characters that you can’t help but love. JOKE’S ON YOU gave me exactly what I was looking for in the resolution of Booth’s and Dillan’s story, and is a great lead-in to Bourne’s and Delanie’s.

I would like to make a note and say that it is a given that a book is not going to appeal to everyone. There will be some that are absolutely amazing, and others that do not do it for me. That being said, though, I would not even think about giving a book a bad review based on a blurb, because there is no way that a few short sentences can properly give the entire picture. If you’ve loved this series, and just aren’t sure about this book, I believe that you should give it a chance. Booth and Dillan may just surprise you, and in the very best way. ❤️
