Get You Some (Simple Man #3) by Lani Lynn Vale
You want some?
She snarls those words at him with barely concealed hostility the moment he arrives at her window to ask for her license and registration.
After a few choice words, he lets her go with not one ticket, but three.
Next time she should check the attitude at the door and realize that he’s a cop, and just doing his job.
Come get some.
Fast forward a week, and he’s still unable to think about anything else but her and her bad attitude—oh, and those sexy lips, angry eyes, and her promise to make his life hell.
Knowing he should stay away, he takes a step back and tries not to think about anything that has to do with those long legs, and that mouth that could be used for much better things than spewing venom.
Then she makes a mistake.
At an interview, she rattles off a random number to use as a reference for a job that she desperately needs, and that number just happens to be Johnny’s.
She’ll regret being so rude, and one day she’ll think twice when she decides to throw attitude toward a man like him.
Vowing to make her life hell, he decides to have a little fun.
Never get enough.
What he doesn’t expect is to fall for her.
The more Johnny learns about June, the deeper he digs his hole. Soon, he doesn’t know which way is up, and he’s just fine with that.
Over time, he learns that not everyone bothers to dig past her prickly demeanor and get to the woman that lives deeper.
When one too many citizens of Hostel, Texas tries to back her against the wall, he’s had enough.
After all, you don’t mess with what’s his.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Johnny captured our hearts as a child in Sebastian & Baylee’s book, Lights to My Siren. Now, we have his HEA! Following a stint in the Army, from which he is sent home with an injury, Johnny is having some trouble finding his place. He is being smothered by his well meaning family. Just as it seems to be getting to be too much for him, a friend suggests that he makes a break for it, and move to her town, of Hostel, TX. He gets a job as a Police Officer in this small town. Then he meets her. The June to his Johnny!
June is a girl from the wrong side of the tracks. Her childhood was horrible, the only bright spot being her grandfather. Her parents are of the worst kind, and their reputation follows her around town. Everyone thinks the worst of her, even if she did nothing to earn it.
These two are so great together. Despite all of the problems that they face, there doesn’t seem to be any going back for them. This story brings back some of our favorites from previous books, and has lots of twists and turns that I never saw coming! This is just another fabulous book by Lani Lynn Vale. I’m totally loving the kids stories, and just know they are going to keep getting better!
