Series: Code-11 KPD SWAT #1
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 1, 2015
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 and the man that would change her life forever. The sexy man who liked to drive fast, and live life like it should be lived. He drove her crazy, and became something she could barely live without.
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’s ready to give him her whole heart, her world takes 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. Whether she wanted him to be or not.

Well, Center Mass was my first book by Lani and I freaking loved it. I was pleasantly surprised by this book.
I really liked Luke and Reese. I liked them as a couple. They were so cute together. I also liked their job profession. I liked where Luke was a cop (I love Cop/Military books. They are my absolute favorite!). And I like where Reese was a School Nurse.
I really liked the plot of this book. I like where it had some suspense and it also had some sexy scenes too.
I also liked that the problems Reese had, Luke’s job would be used to solve her problem.
What I did not like…
The only thing I did not like is where their kids are hardly in the book. Yes, they are mentioned a lot, but they are not present in the book. There are only a few scenes with the girls. I just wish there had been more scenes with them.
This book is defiantly up there on my favorites. I honestly really liked this one. It has romance and suspense. I mean what more could you want out of a book? This book really keeps you on your toes.
I’m really excited for the next book in the series, Double Tap, which is Nico’s book.
I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
