Lord Have Mercy (The Southern Gentleman #2) by Lani Lynn Vale
Poor judgment: knowing better yet doing it anyway.
Flint Stone is a professional in every way.
He’s a police officer with the K-9 unit and works at Gun Barrel High as the school resource officer. In his spare time, he’s working his heart out to create a successful gym from the ground up.
He’s loved by every single person he ever encounters—student, faculty, and employees—Everyone but Camryn Elvis Presley.
The only thing they have in common is their mothers’ poor excuses for names.
Period. The end.
So why is it every time she crosses his path that he has the urge to mess up her perfectly curled hair? Or unbutton a few of her prim and proper buttons?
He knows he should stay away, yet like the high schoolers he’s around every day, he has no choice but to react first and think about the consequences later.
Side note—bad decisions are made, leading to lapses in judgment that threaten both of their jobs. Yet when the time comes, neither one can seem to find the wherewithal to care. Why? Because being bad feels so good.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is book 2 in the Southern Gentleman series, and is about Flint and Camryn. These two! I laughed through out the entire book! This is definitely one I won’t forget, and one that I will read again!
Camryn Presley is a high school teacher, who had a pretty average upbringing. She has a happy life, except for this one thing. Officer Flint, the School Resource Officer pushes her buttons! And not necessarily in a good way! But really, there is something there that keeps pushing them together, even when they try to stay away from each other.
Officer Flint Stone is a K9 officer, and is working to build his own gym. He works hard, and doesn’t know the meaning of taking a break. Always on the go, he keeps running in to Camryn, at school, at the gym, even in public. Sparks fly each time, and just seem to get hotter with each meeting.
I couldn’t help but love Flint and Camryn. In the beginning, they have this type of love-hate relationship, (you know the kind, the I love to hate you type!) They just seemed to rub each other the wrong way. It made for some combustible interactions! But once they got past that point, they just seemed so right for each other. They fit so well! This book was fun, and full of surprises. I never could have seen that end coming!
