-- I need a man like Hayes Greer --
I've found another extraordinary hero to add to my harem!
Hayes and Ares met at a police charity event that neither of them wanted to be at. They were seated across from each other with her ex, who also happened to be Hayes' step-brother, seated at the same table with his new fiancée. They couldn't keep their eyes off of each other and didn't stay far from the other's mind in the months that followed.

Background info:
★ Hayes, along with Luca and Malachi, was a prisoner of war and suffers from PTSD
★ His father is a renowned profiler and his step-brother is Ares' ex and a famous (arrogant) baseball player
★ Ares is a Downy, sister to Locke
★ she's a guidance counselor who actually cares about the students she sees
★ the serial killer subplot that was introduced is still very present in this story. Remember, the killer targets and kills teenage girls.

While Hayes couldn't get enough of Ares and realized that she was everything he could ever want, he knew he had issues and that maybe he wasn't enough for her. Did that stop them from pursuing each other? Could they really resist such scrumptious temptation? No and nope. It was easy to see how happy they made each other and neither wanted that to end. Their journey was sexy and cute and funny with a bit of danger to spice things up.

What gave this story that extra push to five stars was the ending. Holy guacamole! LLV gave me an ending that left me swoooooning! If I wasn't already in love with Hayes and Ares, that epilogue would have sealed the deal. A sweet alpha, sassy heroine, check-ins with other characters, intriguing (and hopefully they'll get their own book) side characters, and heartwarming romance with an edge made Ask Me If I Care a must-read!!

-- About the Book --
Ask Me If I Care by Lani Lynn Vale
Ares saw him for the first time at a Kilgore Police Department benefit dinner. She’d gone with her dad as his plus one. Hayes Greer had gone by himself and brooded silently across the same table as her, drinking whiskey and not saying a word.

It only took that one time for her to become interested.

The next time she saw him, he was doing another benefit—but this one requiring a whole lot fewer clothes. And that was when she knew. She wanted him. Badly. But the morose Hayes was too busy thinking about his sins to see what was right in front of his face—Ares.


Hayes Greer knew the moment that he saw the feisty Ares Downy again that he should’ve stayed away. Maybe if he hadn’t done the stupid calendar, he wouldn’t be questioning every single woman’s intentions.

Maybe if he’d listened to that niggling feeling telling him to stay away, he would’ve been able to do his job a little better. But seeing her with a knife to her throat, in the middle of a building set to blow, made his usually well-wired brain start to malfunction.

Because nobody was allowed to touch her like that—only him. Nobody was allowed to scare her, either. Not and live to tell the tale.
