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.
Blake goes to the police station to talk to the officer that gave her grandfather a ticket on having a “pocketknife”. After the little showdown and everything is situated Blake and her grandfather go home.
Blake starts seeing more of Foster. And the following day Blake starts her new job a dispatcher for the policer department. She had to get because of her ex-husband (who might I add is also a police officer).
Thing kind of get crazy when some breaks into Blake’s house. And then Blake and Foster start dating and Foster helps Blake trying to catch the person that breaks in.
And from this point on its Foster has to find out who and why someone is after Blake.
Like the other books in this series, I really liked Charlie Foxtrot. The things that Lani comes up with for a plot sometimes just makes me wonder. Like this one. I literally laughed because the thing it was all about made me laugh but I still really liked the book.
I loved Foster and Blake. I know I say this about all of Lani’s couples but I thought they meshed well together. Blake is more of the wild one and Foster keeps her in line. But sometimes it’s vise versa. This book really makes me laugh through some parts of it. Especially at the beginning of the book when they first meet. It was funny.
I also loved Blake’s Father and her uncle, who is actually Chief Rhodes. I loved how protective of her they were. I actually hated her mother. It’s usually that way with Lani’s books you either love the character or you hate them. And I really didn’t like her mother. I honestly hated her views on what woman should do and how they should act.
And of course I loved seeing all of the previous characters and characters still waiting on a book. And I must say I’m so excited for Bennet’s book. Literally every book she writes the first few chapters make you laughs. And well I read the first chapter of Bennet’s and it done just that.
Of course it’s safe to say I liked this book. At the end of each book I’m usually excited for the next book in the series, and this time is no different.
I’m so looking forward to Bennet’s book.
