2019 Goals – Monthly Author Feature – Lani Lynn Vale

2019 Goals. Happy September!! Fall and everything pumpkin flavored is fast upon us. I hope you have been enjoying summer because it is coming to a close for 2019. As much as I love pumpkins and pumpkin flavored things, I’m not exactly a fan of the cooler temperatures that I know are right around the corner.

This will mean an end to long summer nights basking in the warm summer sun while squeezing in my reading until the sunlight fades. Soon all my reading will take place inside most likely under a warm blanket. Sigh…

There were a lot of new summer releases in 2019. So many in fact I wasn’t able to squeeze them all in and basically why I’m so late with posting last months goal. I have so many books currently sitting on my TBR pile, since finding and reading new authors means I have to buy their past books. I just need more hours in the day so I can tackle that pile.

As always, if you’ve missed the past few months, where I not only launched into my journey of 2019 goals, but also highlighted other amazing authors, please check them out by clicking on the links below.

Now—Welcome to August!!

Lani Lynn Vale was another author, like many of the others listed above, that checked off numerous boxes on what I love when reading; suspense, wittiness, great chemistry, emotional empathy, basically the gamet of feels when I’m reading a story. I want to be immersed and along for the ride.  In I’d Rather Not, we meet a dying woman who needs an organ transplant and a soldier who has been given a second chance at life willing to give up his kidney to save her. This story had it all and touched me on every level.

Lani Lynn Vale – and I’d Rather Not

I'd Rather Not (KPD Motorcycle Patrol Book 3) by [Vale, Lani Lynn]

I’d Rather Not blew all my expectations away!! It contained all the feels. It went from emotional to funny to steamy hot to suspenseful. I’d Rather Not has everything plus so much heart, it’s a fantastic read!” ~Read the rest of Kay’s Review: I’d Rather Not

Oakley Spurlock is dying.
She only has weeks to live thanks to a freak infection that totally and completely destroyed her kidneys.
Despite her family’s desperation, not a single one of them is a match.
In a last-ditch attempt, Oakley’s father takes to social media to beg for help to save his daughter’s life.
Pace Vineyard is lost. So lost, in fact, that he’s not sure he wants to be found.
But then a beautiful woman’s face is splashed across social media, and Pace finds a spark in his soul for the first time since a bomb went off beside him.
He’s already missing two legs. What’s one more kidney?
At least, that’s what he tells himself.
What he doesn’t expect is to give his heart to the woman, too. Or for the woman to run away with it and force him to follow.
