Coke Solomon has lived a full life.

He’s a retired army drill sergeant, so he is more than used to getting his way.

And if he can’t have it his way? Well, let’s just say that’s never happened before…

At least not until Cora Maldonado walks into his life, demanding he fall in line, or she’ll find a way to make his life hell.

He finds out fast that Cora marches to the beat of her own drum, and a lot of times that drum takes her farther away rather than closer to where he feels she needs to be.

He can’t stand it.

He wants her, and he has to have her.

It doesn’t matter that she’s twenty years younger than him, and has a father that would rather see him dead than have his baby girl anywhere near him. Nor does it matter that his ex-wife is highly offended that she’s been replaced with a much younger woman.

Despite the odds stacking against them, he’ll fight for what he wants.

His ex-wife, her father, and their age difference be damned.

4.5 Stars 

Ain't Doin' It is the fourth title in the Simple Man series.  Coke first appeared in Get You Some, which made me all the more eager to read his story.  He has an ex who is really a psychotic harpy and is a saint in my opinion for all the abuse he suffers at her hands.  This endearing character may be broody and bossy, but he's also gentle, kind, big hearted, loyal and a devoted father. 

Cora is unique, complex, endearing, and funny character.  She's emanates an innocence, and ten years Coke's junior.  She introverted and socially awkward and struggles to communicate at times.  I can totally relate to her aversion to conflict. 

Cora and Coke's story is suspenseful and a slow burn, but their chemistry is undeniable and when they connect it's smoking hot and passionate. 

I love how this title is interconnected not only with the previous titles in the Simple Man Series, but The Freebirds.  Several characters from previous titles also appeared within this story line. 

My only complaint is that I need a family tree as it took awhile for me to realise that Cora was Ember and Gabe's daughter.  One of the many reasons I adore Lani's books is how her characters and their lives are interconnected, but due to her prolific writing I struggle to recall all the connections and ties. 

I will be eagerly awaiting the next addition to the Simple Man series, and look forward to seeing new characters appear in their own titles in the future.
