Title: Charlie Foxtrot
Series: Code 11 KPD SWAT #5)
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Foster made a promise in his hospital bed when his leg was taken from him that he’d get back to one hundred percent. Leg or no leg, he’d get back on the SWAT team if it killed him.
And he does get back. But he has a problem.
He can’t let go of the past.
The anger burns deep, making his emotions volatile at the best of times.
Then he meets Blake with her haughty attitude and inability to distinguish the difference between a pocket knife and a sword.
Little by little, she makes him whole again, one bad joke at a time.
She doesn’t see the revenge in his eyes, though. Doesn’t see the rage burning deep.
Rage so pure and all encompassing, that he knows it’ll explode.
It’s just a matter of time.
What Foster doesn’t realize, though, is that the love that Blake has for him is enough to fight his demons, one kiss at a time.
Foster never stood a chance.
Three times Lani. Three times I've cried reading this book. There's a problem with this, I don't cry. I'm not a crier. But three, Lani. Three.
The other thing I'm trying to wrap my head around is the why. The freaking why. I can't believe what all the drama was over. Like for real, bitch get over it. There were so many times I felt like I wanted to bitch slap someone in this story, mainly the exes. Okay, maybe once or twice it was Foster. But the exes. Ugh. Just ugh. I would have really loved for BOTH of them, all of them, to be put in their place by someone. I know, I know, I'm bitter.
Lani did a great job with this book. It had a slight bit of humor, plenty of drama, and the right balance of sexiness. She also added the realness of the daily process for people who have prothstetics. It seemed like she really did her research on what kind of battles they run into, mentally and physically. That fact fullness in the story really helps bring it to life.
I gave this 4.5 stars. I mean, Foster.
I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
