Publisher's Summary

Luke Roberts came to the small, lazy town of Kilgore, Texas, with one thing on his mind: forgetting. He wanted to forget why he left. Forget those emerald green eyes that haunted his dreams. And forget how it felt to have his heart ripped out of his chest by a woman who didn't like the fact that he had a child. It was something he'd been doing a damn fine job of doing, too. Until Reese smashed through every one of his defenses and made him feel again.

Reese Doherty was just trying to do the best for her little girl. So she moved to the little boomtown nearly an hour from where she grew up to be the school nurse for Kilgore's littlest people. That's where she met him. The SWAT officer, the man that would change her life forever.

But Luke was a hero. A man used to risking his life to make the world a safer place. Something Reese had to decide whether she could handle or not. Preferably before her and her daughter became too attached.

Just when she was ready to give him her whole heart, her world took a huge hit, and everything she thought she knew wasn't as it seemed.

Luke wasn't a quitter, though. Damn far from it, and he'd prove to her that he'd be there when the dust settled.

Contains mature themes.

Top five favorite

I adore this book. This is one of my all time favorite books. (Since I read hundreds a year, that says something) I’ve probably read/listened to it 20+ times. There is enough drama to keep me interested, but Nothing that has me rolling my eyes and slapping my forehead.
Our H and h are both single parents, and I love how Lani writes in a way that the kids aren’t forgotten and they are age appropriate and have flushed out personalities.
Luke and Reese are adorable. They bicker, they flirt and they have real give and take.
And I really enjoy the narrators they chose for this book.

Wow

If you’re single, hold on to your seats and might need to download dating apps... it’s hot, sexy, emotional, and beyond anything else frustrating to read single.

Author uses amazing description of everything making the characters relatable to life and easy to imagine scenes. The dual voice audio really sells the book too. Can’t read all the books by this author!

eh..disappointing :(

I couldn't wait to get this book based on reviews. For me it was disappointing. The male narrator was not the right choice IMO. He was too dramatic~ish and soft spoken for the character's tough guy exterior. The story line was good, but it was rushed and without a good lead in to the action scenes. The sex scenes were very explicit, some would call steamy. :/ Might be great for others, but not my cup of tea.

Good story but narrator ruins it.

I just can't take listening to C.J. Bloom. She ruins it for me. Good story, but can't do the audio version.

Awesome 😎

I wish the female heroine 🦸‍♀️ was a little more independent, ass kicker and didn’t give in to easily. A little more grittier.
Over all, LLV is awesome. Great series

Easy love story. 1POV. HEA. Standalone.

Overall a great story. Although standalone, you get more info on the characters from the Rejects.

Too much editing

This was good and had some decent sexy senes but it felt like it was missing so much like they did WAY too much editing. They would start talking about something then next thing you know it’s the next day and that part was unfinished. Don’t think I liked that her ex ended up being law enforcement.. and what happened to the baby idk just felt unfinished..

Reese and Luke

The first time I read this book was in 2016, Since then I have re-read it several times. But listening to this on audiobook is so much better. This is the first book in the KPD Swat series. This is an entertaining, page turner, that will make you swoon, melt your heart and leave you with a smile on your face. Lani Lynn Vale has a beautifully unique way of making you feel like you are a part of the story. I enjoyed every single second of this story. (and will continue when I read it again). Narration is perfection!

Center Mass

Pretty good read, love anything/everything from author Lani Lynn Vale. As for the actors, they did a good job also but the male actor kind of fall flat, I really didn't want to say it but it was too high-pitched for me but I love everything else about the book.

Loved the story line.

But I struggled big time with the female narrator doing the male voices and vice versa just doesn't work in my opinion

Love it

I've read all of Lani Lynn Vale's books and wanted to do a re-read with her new ones coming out but didn't not have time so these audible versions were perfect. Took me a little getting used to someone else's voice reading the books and not mine but they are all so enjoyable.........

Not for me

Felt like there were chunks missing in the story. Didn’t hate it, though I doubt I’ll read anything else by this author.
