ARC Review of LORD HAVE MERCY by Lani Lynn Vale

Lord Have Mercy by Lani Lynn Vale
Poor 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.

My Review


I love how picking up a book by Lani Lynn Vale is always a guaranteed good read! Camryn is crushing hard on Flint Stone and honestly, what's not to like? He's hot, he's a cop, he's great with kids, he's a generally nice guy... too bad he doesn't know how to be nice to her. And his girlfriend just happens to be Camryn's nemesis. But she can't get him off of her mind. If only he felt the same way too.

Camryn gets on Flint's nerves. She's gotten under his skin and he can't stop thinking about her. He wants her BADDDD!! Who knew grown men could have crushes? His girlfriend isn't really his girlfriend and he's about fed up with having her around. She was supposed to distract him from his want, but his desire has only grown deeper. And when he and Camryn finally realize that their feelings are reciprocated... BOOM!

Once we got past the enemies part, the lovers section took over and I loved how these characters loved each other. There was plenty to get them down or to make them doubt themselves, but nothing stopped them. Not the seemingly forbidden aspect of working and loving together. Not even the vindictiveness of Flint's ex. Nothing and no one was going to mess with their love and that only made their story more powerful for me. Their happy ending wasn't easy, but overcoming the pain only made it sweeter!
