Title: Put Out
Series: Kilgore Fire Series #5
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Angie is a survivor. Anything you could throw at her, she could overcome.
After her father left her like a pile of unwanted trash, she began fighting. Fighting to build a life. Fighting to keep her child. Fighting to matter.
She thought she had it all figured out.
Then Bowen Race Tannenbaum walks into her life, turning it into a flurry of confusion, hope, and then ultimately despair. He tore down, brick-by-brick, her carefully constructed world, leaving her heart in tatters and longing for more. Such as a happily ever after, something that wasn’t ever going to happen for her. Not when she couldn’t give him what he wanted. He’d break her, and she couldn’t be put back together a second time.
Bowe wasn’t always so jaded, but when you keep drawing a losing hand, it tends to affect a man. He didn’t mean to lash out so carelessly. But he was so over being told no. He was done being lied to. He was through with being cheated on.
This time, his heart was getting what it wanted. If Angie wasn’t able to see what he was offering, what was right here in front of her, well then, he’d just have to damn well show her.
4.5 Stars Put Out is the fifth title in the Kilgore Fire series. Each of these books revolves around one of the paramedics/fire fighters who work for in the town of Kilgore. Put Out is Bowe and Angie's story, although this title can be read as a standalone this pair both appeared in the previous title Controlled Burn. Bowen aka Bowe is unlucky in love, he's a sweet, easy going, genuine guy who is searching for his happy ever after. He's inexplicably drawn to Angie and they have a strong connection. Angie on the other hand is distrustful of men in general. A single mother, she's strong and independent, and used to relying on herself. She's been hurt by men in the past, including her father and daughter's father and doesn't really trust men in general. Their story is full of drama, suspense, angst, intrigue and steam. Put Out is a fast paced read, very entertaining and engaging and it kept me captivated. I read this story in one sitting and didn't want to put it down. It's told in a dual point of view and has twists and turns that just keep coming. The banter between Angie and Bow is sweet, humorous and sometimes downright dirty. I found the characters to be relate-able and endearing. Once again Lani Lynn Vale, hasn't disappointed and I thoroughly recommend Put Out to lovers of the romantic suspense genre.
