    I'm a long time Lani Lynn Vale fan, both of her Boomtown series, and this one as well. I love the way she writes, using humor and snark to cut through the tension between her alpha male characters and strong, feisty heroines. One of my favorite parts of all Lani Lynn Vale's books is how she starts each chapter with either a funny quote, a humorous "life lesson" or a snarky text between the main characters. As someone who has read everything written by this author, I think that those quotes, lessons and text messages are what I anticipate most as I'm turning the pages. Some of the funniest things I've ever written have been contained in those brief passages before the start of each chapter. "What if when we die, the light at the end of the tunnel is really just another vagina? - Food for thought" This book is the story of ER nurse, Rue, and Cleo, a newer member of the Dixie Wardens MC, a former USAF pararescueman and a Life Flight pilot. Cleo and Rue meet in a graveyard and strike up a friendship that morphs into so much more. But Cleo can't let himself go there. He lost his mom, and as a pararescueman, he is surrounded by men who had failed relationships. He will only allow himself friendship with Rue. She pushes for more, and finally, one night she wears him down. She wakes the next morning, and Cleo is gone. She doesn't hear from him again for a year. Cleo went through a major transformation in his time away from Rue. He comes back focused and knowing what he wants - Rue. He knows it's going to be hard, but he isn't prepared for exactly how much he hurt her and how hard it's going to be. Cleo is kicking himself, but he's determined to win the woman he loves back. "Whether you thought that you were mine or not, I was always yours. And I always will be." Lani Lynn Vale's blend of steamy yet humorous writing is a pleasure to read. She has a way of telling her story, no matter the difficult topics she writes about, with passionate hilarity that is uncommon in contemporary romance. I am very much looking forward to the next book in this series. Lani Lynn Vale is definitely an auto-buy author for me.

  • Cleo and Rue

    i found myself loving these two characters together. and even when the world was working against them. you found yourself rooting for them. this one has some emotional parts, like all the previous books, but in this one i was on the edge. i couldn't get enough which is why i finished this one in a matter of hours.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Another 5 star read from Vale

    The Heroes of the Dixie Wardens are back ladies! If your like me you've been anxiously awaiting the next in the series so we can read all about our favorite sexy men. Book 5 is Cleo's story. He was a pararescuman in the Air Force when he and Rue first met. Cleo doesn't do relationships, he's seen all of his fellow PJ's marriages crash and burn do to their jobs so he refuses to put a woman through that. He meets Rue by chance and a friendship develops. He's always there for her and her Nonnie helping out wherever he can. Until one night their relationship changes and the next morning Cleo is gone. Not to be heard from for a year. Now he's back and Rue is faced with something she hoped she was over and wouldn't have deal with again. She loves Cleo but knows there is no point, he couldn't possibly want her. Rue has some slight self esteem issues, but come on what girl wouldn't when faced with a man like Cleo. The thing is Cleo wants more with Rue. He always has but he hid it because of his job. Now he's out of the Air Force and home for good, but can he convince her he won't leave her again? Can they overcome past issues? I won't give anything away but ladies, if you have read this series from the beginning there is a shocker in this one. I cried, Ms Vale broke my heart with something you wouldn't have expected. I'm sure to have a book hangover for a few days after reading this one but it was worth it. Another 5 star read in an amazing series.

    Thanks for your feedback!
