Just Kidding (SWAT Generation 2.0 #1) by 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.
I finished this book in an afternoon. Right after I was done i can honestly say i expected more to it, because of reading so many recs and my bar was set too high.
So this is me after 4 hours and damn.. i wanna go back into the book’s world and keep reading the rest of the series. So either I crave the SWAT aspect of the book, or I think I enjoyed it much more than I thought. I always review based on my feelings after reading a book so me being so conflicted? yeah… it means something.
The fact that I haven’t started with the 1st SWAT generation and got sucked in with their kids was not something to steer you away of.
When the chief’s daughter returns home, everybody she meets knows who she is. In comes Dax, the boy she knew as a kid, but now all of them are grown up. He also sets his eye on her the first chance he got.
There is Ex’s drama, but what I wanted was more drama with the people around them when they started seeing each other. Just everybody encourage them had me WTF??? This is what it wrong with me.. I was used to so many books with hot Alpha males, that this surprised me. I don’t know how I’m feeling about that, but it worked for this book.
So yeah… I say give it a go, because I do know I’ll go in again and see where the rest of the serie takes me.
