New Release + Release Blitz: Somethin’ About That Boy by Lani Lynn Vale

Release Date: June 23

Banner Spurlock knew the moment that he walked into Kilgore High School and saw Perry Street that life was about to get interesting.
 

 

Forced to move due to a problem at home, a problem in the form of his ex-best friend hating him for something that Banner’s father did, Banner doesn’t think very much could improve in his life.

 

 

He left his status as king of Benton High School behind and moved to a new school where not only would he have to try out for a new football team and prove himself, but he’d also have to find a place for himself in the hierarchy.

 

 

Only, the moment that he arrives, he knows that finding a place for himself won’t be too hard. Especially when his reputation follows him all the way to Kilgore, Texas.

 

 

***

 

Perry Street hates school. She hates her peers—most of them anyway—and she hates her classes. All she wants to do is finish her senior year, graduate, and find a place that will give her a full scholarship so that she doesn’t have to be stuck here forever.

 

 

That’s her goal, anyway.

 

 

Then she walks into first period, on her first day of her senior year, and sits down. Seconds later, he walks in and changes every single plan she’s ever made.

 

 

It isn’t long before Perry starts to fall for the bad boy who doesn’t care who he does and doesn’t impress. The boy makes her heart flutter. The boy makes her want things that she’s never wanted before. Not ever.

 

 

The boy brings trouble with him that nearly kills her.

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. ❤️

New Release + Release Blitz: May Contain Wine by Lani Lynn Vale

Release Date: May 12

This is for charity. This is for fun. You are a professional. You can do it.


Those are the words that Calloway Alvarez chants to herself as she watches all the large men gather into the small room where she’ll be doing the interviews for her employer—Hero Magazine.

Honestly, she’s convinced herself that she can’t accomplish the task at hand.

That is until she hears his voice, and her head turns to see him standing there.

Louis Spurlock. Greek god. SWAT officer. Keeper of her secrets. Ultimate fantasy. Man who will break her heart.
***
Louis Spurlock has been playing nice.

He’s been biding his time, giving Calloway the space she thinks she needs.

But then he sees her taking photos of his friends in all states of undress, talking to them all as if they’re best friends, and that little thread of control he’d been managing to hold onto unravels.

Let’s change it up, she says. And the moment the words are out of her mouth, he’s stripping to his skivvies, and throwing out a challenge while he’s at it.

Calloway won’t know what hit her when he’s through playing.



But he does know one thing for sure. When it ends, she’ll be his.

New Release + Release Blitz: Get Bucked by Lani Lynn Vale

Release Date: April 21

Darby has always been ‘that’ guy.

The guy that no man, woman, or child wants around their loved one.

See, a long time ago he made some bad decisions. Those bad decisions have haunted him ever since. No matter what he does, people still see him as the town’s screw up. The boy that sold his soul to the Devil.

Years later, he’s turned himself around. Made amends and ultimately turned into a generally good guy. Only, it’s hard to act like a good guy when people still treat you like the old you, and not the new you.

Enter Waylynn Jennings.

Waylynn has watched Darby Valentine from afar for a very long time.

She’s witnessed the changes in him and knows the only reason he’s so mean is to protect the man that lies within. A battered, injured soul that deserves more than what he’s received. Even his own family takes him for granted.

She’s made it her new mission in life to prove to everyone that Darby isn’t the bad guy. That he’s a kind-hearted, sweet soul that’s just looking for a place to fit in.

Only, Darby is fairly sure that Waylynn is out to kill him, not help him. How else do you explain all the fights he’s having to break up on her behalf, or all the times he has to come to her rescue when she’s managed to put her cute little butt right in the middle of something where it shouldn’t be?

There’s obviously only one solution. He has to make her his. Then everyone will know not to mess with her. 

Darby Valentine protects what’s his. 

No matter what the cost.

New Release + Release Blitz: Chute Yeah by Lani Lynn Vale

Release Date: March 24

Candy Ray Sunshine—Yes, that is my real name, thank you very much, Mom and Dad—knew two things.

One, she was going to work her butt off and open her very own coffee shop, even if she had to die doing it.

Two, Banks Valentine was the world’s worst ex-boyfriend in the history of ex-boyfriends. Even if they were only boyfriend and girlfriend for one evening. She wouldn’t sneeze on him even if he was on fire.
***

Banks Valentine also knew two things.
One, he was an immature jerk when he was in high school, and Candy Ray Sunshine probably could open a coffee shop if she put her mind to it. But he still thinks that she should shoot a little higher, anything that gets her the heck out of Kilgore, Texas.
Two, he likes riding bulls. It’s a dangerous job, and when he gets on the back of one of those thousand-pound death machines, he can finally feel his head clear enough that he can think.

***
Candy and Banks would never get along. Not after what he said, and definitely not after what she did.

Then again, neither one of them expected that night to end the way it did, either—the night that both of them refused to talk about the next morning.

New Release + Release Blast + 4 Star Review: Maybe Swearing Will Help by Lani Lynn Vale

 

Release Date: March 10 

Ford Spurlock has known Ashe Trammel since they were babies.
 
He’s also done his level best to stay away from her because every time he gets to within five feet of her, they’re fighting like cats and dogs.
 
Ashe is the apple of her father’s eye. The motorcycle club princess that was never to be harmed in any way—or touched for that matter. And he’s always resented the fact that she could get away with things that he couldn’t. Things that she then blames on him and he always gets punished for.
 
Fast forward to adulthood, and Ashe is still off limits. Still driving him insane. Still…beautiful.
 
She never misses an opportunity to give him hell, either.
 
That has to be why he agrees to do a photoshoot for KPD SWAT that’ll benefit her charity even when he’d rather shoot himself in the foot with his duty weapon.
***
Ashe never thought he’d agree.
 
Honestly, she thought she’d ask him, he’d say no, and that’d be the end of it.
 
She never realized that she’d leave his photo up in her cubicle, and it’d be the last thing that she saw every night as she locked her office door.
 
When they were kids, Ford used to be that boy that threw dirt at her and pulled her hair.
 
Now, he’s the same Ford Spurlock, only a whole lot sexier. And a lot harder to say no to.
 
When he challenges her to one date, she has no other recourse but to agree.
 
What she didn’t agree to was falling in love with Mr. March. Or wanting to give him everything she had to give.

Tracey’s Review

Ford Spurlock and Ashe Trammell have a long and storied history, meaning, they have known and competed with each other for as long as they can remember. Now that they’re grown, nothing much has changed, except, maybe, for the way that they’re coming to see each other. Their wagers, though, they’re just as fierce as ever, and this one’s a doozy.

I’m a big-time fan of enemies, or, rather, frenemies-to-lovers stories, and MAYBE SWEARING WILL HELP has plenty of this and more. I think that the thing that I like most about books by Lani Lynn Vale is the quirkiness. I mean, yes, there’s romance, yes, there’s some suspense, but I can say for sure that Lani’s characters are definitely not boring or run-of-the-mill, and that’s the real draw for me. I am enjoying the books in her KPD SWAT Generation 2.0 series so much, and it’s because I know that I’m going to have the best time while the stories unfold.

This is the third book in a series, so not only builds on past books, but paves the way for future plot and action. I am entirely enthralled with this world, and cannot wait to read more of what LLV has up her sleeve. ❤️

New Release + Release Blitz: Fries Before Guys by Lani Lynn Vale

 
Sometimes people come into a person’s life and make their heart skip a beat.
 
Those people are called cops.

 

 

 

Well, one cop in particular.

 

 
 
A SWAT officer for the Kilgore Police Department, to be specific.

 

 

The first time Avery Flynn saw Derek Roberts, she was photographing him for the first annual Kilgore Police Department SWAT calendar. He was leaned back in his squad car, shirtless, and giving her a smile that was completely between them. A smile that hinted at what he wanted to do to her later.

 

 

When she scrounges up the courage to ask him out after the photoshoot, he laughs in her face.

 

 

Well, screw you, too, Mr. February.

 

 

***

 

 

Derek Roberts never really paid attention to the photographer.

 

 

She was a mousy girl who dressed like a twelve-year-old girl. Her tight leggings, extra baggy Star Trek t-shirt denoting her a Klingon captain, and her surprisingly clean Chucks didn’t leave much of an impression.

 

 

Now, the outfit that she was in weeks after he rebuffed her? Yeah, now that caught his attention.

 

 

Too bad that happens when he’s trying to save her from what’s sure to be death thanks to an unhinged native Texan who’s convinced she was the reason he lost his last chance at a million dollars.

 

 

When he tries to save her, she tells him she’d rather take a cattle prod to the forehead than go anywhere with him.

 

 

Challenge. Accepted

New Release + Release Blitz + 4 Star Review: Just Kidding by Lani Lynn Vale

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.

Tracey’s Review
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. ❤️

Cover Reveal + Pre-Order: Depends On Who’s Asking by Lani Lynn Vale

 

 

 

It was the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring…nope. No. Nuh-uh. That’s a lie.

 

The moment Caro wakes up, she knows that she’s not alone. 
One thump-thump from the living room and she quickly moves into action. 
One 9-1-1 call later, and she’s ready to defend herself.
Only, she gets more than she bargains for when she steps into her living room and comes face to face with a living breathing nightmare. 
And isn’t it just fitting that the man that saves her by coming down the chimney with a large black gun in his hand is named Saint Nicholas?
***
It seemed like the start of a bad joke. 
Saint Nicholas comes down the chimney on Christmas Eve night, but he isn’t there to bear gifts. He’s there to take out the trash.
When he lands on his silent feet, he has no other choice but to put himself in harm’s way.
One look at Caro’s terrified face, and he can’t stop himself.
He steps in just as the bullets start flying, saving the damsel in distress and taking a bullet to the shoulder for his trouble.
But one thing he can say is, heroes always win the girl.
And Caro is the best Christmas miracle of all.
