About the Book
Etienne LaFayette hits the ground running the moment he breathes free air after being paroled from a maximum-security prison in Texas.
He claws his life back from his brother-in-law who’d taken over his business during the years he’d spent as an inmate at Huntsville Penitentiary. Though it is hard, he puts his life back together in Accident, Florida.
There, he hires new employees, joins a motorcycle club, and becomes wildly successful overnight.
Seems like the perfect life, right?
Because one of his first clients is a beautiful, curly-haired woman that reels him in from the moment he first lays eyes on her. Only, before he can work his charm, she forms an opinion of him based solely on the person that he chose to work at his side, day in and day out. That opinion? Utter disgust.
Matilda Deveraux has been dealt blow after blow her entire life.
First with the death of her mom. Then living with a stepfamily that despises her.
Her entire life she’s been known as different. The “weird girl that creeps everyone out.”
It’s not her fault that she’s different, yet everyone, including Etienne’s assistant, treats her like she’s a menace to society.
Like she would be better off in a loony bin than gracing the streets of Accident, Florida.
After years of abuse from everyone around her, the last thing she needs is to be around a man that would have that horrible woman around him twenty-four seven.
As a result, she forms an opinion—something that people do to her all the time—and treats him accordingly.
Only, it turns out that Etienne isn’t who she thought he was.
He’s much, much worse. But only in the best of ways.
Cute but Psycho is the third book in the Gator Bait MC series by Lani Lynn Vale. We met Etienne and Matilda in Good Trouble and their story is an enemies-to-lovers romance! Etienne is friends with Bain and just out of jail. When he meets Matilda there’s something about her that he really likes. But she seems to hate him. He doesn’t know why, but he’s building her new clinic so he’s going to see her a lot so he has to get her to like him. Matilda has a crappy family. No one really loved her and she just wants to feel loved and safe. She also has sensory issues and people are jerks to her! She’s smart, pretty and speaks her mind. Once she and Etienne clear the air, she likes him again. They have a lot in common and he loves the things about her that make her unique. He knows just how to talk to her and give her what she needs. Their story was funny, sexy and emotional. It’s not my favorite of the series, I just couldn’t connect with these characters like I usually do. But I’m looking forward to more from the series!
