What did I think?

Rowen wanted Theo. Theo wanted her sister, Katy. Katy wanted nothing to do with Theo. Theo then continued to repel Rowen's subtle advances and started dating the only woman to have tortured her for a year. Rowen then lost her job. With nothing holding her back, she moved back home, reconnected with Dax, found him to be more man than any man she'd ever met, and quickly realized that everything she wanted was right there for the taking. Their story was so cute and hot and it was everything. Rowen and Dax were awesome, their families and their connections were awesome, and even the bits of drama were awesome. Whenever I'm looking for an amazing read, LLV has always got me covered. Sexy and sweet alpha heroes find their feisty and adorable heroines. She can be trusted to get you out of a reading slump and knows just how to provide you with an entertaining read Every. Single. Time. GUARANTEED! One-clicking this book should be a no-brainer.


My only complaint was something that I hope is fixed after editing of this ARC. Within a particular POV, such as Dax's, it would switch to Rowen's voice with no warning. It was a bit jarring and I can only assume that one of the author's betas or editors will catch it. Also, the suspenseful climax ended up flat, like it was just thrown in there to give us something without any real thought or effort put into it. It was on the verge of being explosive, but then it fizzled, which is not par for the course with this author. I'm not sure what happened here. It made me think I was missing some of the words of certain scenes. Still a great read and I'll always say yes to LLV!

About the Book

Just Kidding 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.
