Book Description:Tyler Cree has never been good at the whole look and don’t touch thing. From the moment he was old enough to walk on his own two feet, he’s been looking for trouble. Trouble comes in many forms…quite a few of those forms being the female persuasion. Tyler knows what girls want—a bad boy. And he has the bad boy image down pat. Ex-military—check. Hot cop—double check. A bike between his legs and a devil may care attitude—oh, yeah. All the girls want him, yet none of them will have him—at least not all of him, anyway. A certain appendage they can have all they want. His heart, however, is not up for grabs. The useless organ inside his chest was broken and battered, mutilated by the one woman he thought would keep it safe. Spoiler alert: she ripped it to shreds and set fire to the pieces. To protect himself, Tyler keeps everyone at arm’s length, and never lets anyone get too close. Then Reagan Rose Alvarez barrels into his life, and trespasses on not only his property, but straight into his abused heart. One glance is all it takes, and he’s suddenly thinking about things he hasn’t thought for quite some time—thoughts that a man like him should never have about a woman like her. One moment of weakness is all it takes, and suddenly he has no other choice but to go on the offensive. Keeping her is the only other option now. Turns out, his heart isn’t as broken as he thought it was. The only problem is, now the little she-devil holds it in the palm of her hands, and she has no clue just how much power she holds.
Once again I really enjoyed reading a book from the Simple Man Series by Lani Lynn Vale. She's an author you can pick up on the fly and know she's going to give you a great read. I haven't read all of this series yet and I totally need to make that happen as well as go back to some of her earlier books as they all seem to be a bit interconnected. As you can tell I have't had any trouble reading these out of order or with out reading previous series books, they can all totally be read as standalones but I really want that 'world' feel with this series so I'll be going back to the beginning of it all as soon as I can.
I throughly enjoyed this storyline of this book, the little bit of suspense, but especially this couple. Their back and forth with each other had me laughing out loud a time or two and swooning even more. They are just plain sweet in a love/hate crazy sort of way. Reagan is an amazing character. She's smart, witty, beautiful, a bit of a tomboy, shy...she's lived through some pretty terrible moments to become the amazing character that she is and you just want to make her your BFF! Tyler, whoa...the hot cop of a little town in Texas is way more than I expected and in all the best ways. He is shall we say, intense in every aspect of his life, well, except for when he's battling witts with Reagan. I loved them both so hard that I don't even want to start a book boyfriend moment because there is no one else who could handle Tyler than Reagan and Regan than Tyler. They are a match meant to be and you will totally fall hard for this couple just like I did.
I loved the secondary characters, seeing characters from past books and meeting new ones. I especially loved Rome who I am hoping we will see more of in the future. The story line between Rome and Tyler and then just Rome's own story is heartbreaking. I need this man to get more of the little HEA (I can't talk about it and spoil anything, but it will help dry some tears) that he got in this book.
Sufficed to say I throughly enjoyed this book and am making the last of my summer days revolve around get all of Lani Lynn Vale's novels! Add this one to your TBR, or just admit that you need it in you life and go forth and one click; plus it's got Franggy on the cover so sure wouldn't hurt to have it sitting on your shelf even if you can't get to it yet, hahaha!
~ HAPPY READING ~
