Just Kidding - Lani Lynn Vale

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 title in the SWAT Generation 2.0 series and features Dax Tremaine and Rowen Roberts.  If you're a long time fan of Lani Lynn Vale's work those names may be familiar to you as both their parents and siblings have featured in previous titles. 

As I've come to expect from Ms Vale, this title has the perfect blend of heat, heart and humor, and I love that it's connected to Center Mass (Luke & Reese), Another One Bites the Dust (Max & Payton), Hide Your Crazy (Logan & Katy), F-Bomb (Harleigh & Slate) and will be connected to Fries Before Guys that features Derek, Rowen's younger brother and fellow SWAT officer. 

Rowen is sweet, sassy, funny, intelligent and hardworking.  She's kind of quirky and a bit of a klutz, but is also incredibly resilient, strong and kind.   Dax is an alpha with a big heart.  He's sweet, and whilst very loyal is also incredibly private, and being objectified by a calendar is akin to torture for him. 

The banter this pair shares is witty, flirtatious and fun and their chemistry is undeniable.  This title is sure to leave you with a smile upon your face, and has left me incredibly eager for more of the second generation of SWAT.
