Title: Coup De Grace
Series: Code 11 KPD SWAT #7
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Michael was that guy.
The one that everyone was cautious of. Maybe it was the tattoos. Maybe it was the way he gave off a ‘don’t screw with me’ vibe. Maybe it was because he just told them to leave him the hell alone.
Regardless, people gave him his space.
He was screwed up, and everyone knew it.
He got tattoos because he liked the pain. He was standoffish. He didn’t have many friends outside of work. And the only thing he had going for him was that he was a good cop.
Everyone wondered about him, but no one asked.
The only one that didn’t treat him as if he was screwed up was Nikki Pena, a woman that he couldn’t have.
Nikki was that girl.
The one that everyone loved.
The one girl that he’d destroy if he let her have her way. What did she want?
But, he couldn’t give her him. She didn’t deserve what it would take to be with him.
So Michael would suffer in silence…or so he thought.
The woman who loved him had different ideas.
For me, I wanted to love this book. One, because it's Michael. But two, because it's LLV. Unfortunately I can't say I loved it, I liked it, just not love. To me, there were too many loose ends, too many wait..what? moments, or just random things that didn't make sense in the storyline.
I'm going to try to relay my response to this book without spoilers. Looking at that now, seems like it might be hard to do.
Okay, my issues. The ex. The cheating. No one says anything. The family never realized the wrong their doing . His brother and who he's dating. Her cheating. Again, no one says anything. What Michael said that caused the break up, never gets discussed in detail. How did they get back together so fast. Wait- she asked him if he would what!?!? Does anyone in this family have balls? And who the hell does this woman think she is? Why does no one stand up to her!?!? Hold up... There's a second person? Wait, what!? Where did that come from.
I felt like there were too many lose ends. Did I like the book, yes. But I felt like there was so much more that could have been tied up to make it better.
All in all its a good book. Typical LLV where you will fall in love with the male and the woman who stands beside him.
