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.
Just Kidding is the first book in a new series, SWAT Generation 2.0, by Lani Lynn Vale. I’m a huge fan of Lani’s and I am loving the start of this new series. These are the kids of the KDP SWAT series. I didn’t read that series, but I’m kicking myself for not discovering Lani sooner! I met Rowen in Hide Your Crazy and I knew her story was going to be fun! She’s back home in Kilgore because of some unfortunate circumstances. But running into Dax again is one of the best things to happen to her. Dax is big and sexy and he’s posing for a calendar. And he seems to be everywhere Rowen is. I fell for Dax the first time he winked at her and oh man does he know how to work it. The uniform, the smile, the words. Sweet Jesus! Rowen doesn’t know what hit her, but she can’t stay away from her sexy neighbor. As they get closer and closer, their exes and enemies keep showing up trying to ruin their happy. Dax isn’t going to let anything happen to Rowen and I loved watching his protective side! This SWAT team is going to wreck me! I love the way Lani introduces them all and gets us excited for who’s next!
He winked at me, and I tried not to moan. Jesus Christ. Was there anything hotter than Dax Tremaine winking at you? I thought not.
Holy. Shit. His feet were bare. His chest was bare. And dear God. He had those sweatpants so low on his hips that I damn near saw pubic hair.
