Title: Charlie Foxtrot
Series: Code 11 KPD SWAT #5)
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Foster made a promise in his hospital bed when his leg was taken from him that he’d get back to one hundred percent. Leg or no leg, he’d get back on the SWAT team if it killed him.
And he does get back. But he has a problem.
He can’t let go of the past.
The anger burns deep, making his emotions volatile at the best of times.
Then he meets Blake with her haughty attitude and inability to distinguish the difference between a pocket knife and a sword.
Little by little, she makes him whole again, one bad joke at a time.
She doesn’t see the revenge in his eyes, though. Doesn’t see the rage burning deep.
Rage so pure and all encompassing, that he knows it’ll explode.
It’s just a matter of time.
What Foster doesn’t realize, though, is that the love that Blake has for him is enough to fight his demons, one kiss at a time.
Foster never stood a chance.
LOVED IT! Am not sure I can convey how much I loved Blake and Foster’s story. Foster is the typical police officer, alpha male, sexier than anything else man. Blake is the strong, self reliant, recently divorced woman. Put these two together and sparks have to fly and oh boy, they flew. What sticks in my mind most of all is the respect. Foster could have been the guy that told Blake how to live her live when it was in danger, instead he took into account what she needed to feel safe and then figured out how to take what she needed and made that into what he could do to keep her safe.
While the romance in the main focus of Charlie Foxtrot, the mystery of who was stalking Blake was just as entertaining to me. I thought I knew who it was… I had ideas… boy was I wrong. I realized I was clueless and I love it. The surprises, the twists, and the guessing were all what kept me truly reading. I knew how the romance would end up but I did not know the rest of the story.
Whether this is your first Lani Lynn Vale book or your 100th do not pass on Charlie Foxtrot. This is a great story with a ton of heat and mystery.
