April 23, 2019Poor judgment: knowing better yet doing it anyway. Flint Stone is a professional in every way. He’s a police officer with the K-9 unit and works at Gun Barrel High as the school resource officer. In his spare time, he’s working his heart out to create a successful gym from the ground up. He’s loved by every single person he ever encounters—student, faculty, and employees—Everyone but Camryn Elvis Presley. The only thing they have in common is their mothers’ poor excuses for names. Period. The end. So why is it every time she crosses his path that he has the urge to mess up her perfectly curled hair? Or unbutton a few of her prim and proper buttons? He knows he should stay away, yet like the high schoolers he’s around every day, he has no choice but to react first and think about the consequences later. Side note—bad decisions are made, leading to lapses in judgment that threaten both of their jobs. Yet when the time comes, neither one can seem to find the wherewithal to care. Why? Because being bad feels so good.
Lord Have Mercy is the second book in the Southern Gentleman series by the talented and hilarious Lani Lynn Vale. I’m a new fan of Lani’s and I’ve officially committed to reading everything she writes from now on! She knows how to write funny, sexy characters who you can’t help but love. The little angst and suspense that you need to keep flipping pages. And the handsome strong leading men and the beautiful sassy women they want. We met both Flint and Camryn in Hissy Fit and I knew there story was going to be hilarious! They had amazing chemistry even if it was more hate than love. But in Lord Have Mercy they really took it up a notch! Flint never really hated Camryn. He actually wanted her badly, but didn’t think she liked him. Camryn always noticed Flint and his sexiness in his uniform, but he was annoying. Annoyingly hot! When her best friend Raleigh drags her to a CrossFit class taught by the sexy cop, she can’t stop her attraction anymore. Flint can’t believe his luck. He gets to have Camryn in her tight spandex and sports bras in his class and he gets to see her at school. Win. Win. He’s done pretending and he’s going to show Camryn they should date. He’s not giving up and he isn’t deterred by the smart mouth and bad eating habits. When their relationship is put to the test, will they step up and go all in? I loved this story! I didn’t want it to end! Flint is so…sexy, funny, sweet, jerky, dedicated, smart, and more sexy. Camryn is hilarious, smart, fun and gives as good as she gets! Their fun, snarky banter was perfection. Their nicknames for each other were awesome! Overall, I loved every word! I laughed, cried, got really hot and bothered, laughed more and smiled the entire time! “I can see the entire outline of your dick. Not that I’m complaining, but I hope you didn’t go out like that.” “You can’t see my dick. Take a picture.” “Well, look at that. You can.” “I like them. But you should be aware that you might cause minor motor vehicle accidents if you cross the road in those. Lani Lynn Vale is a USA Today Bestselling Author of over thirty titles.
