Review:

Get Bucked is a totally fun book to read. I dare you not to fall in love with Darby Valentine by the end of book, it is nearly impossible!!

Darby may have been troubled in his youth, honestly with happened to his family it is easy to understand, but the young man he has turned into is very easy to like. Graduating college, securing his own jobs, still working for his brothers, and helping out around town whenever he is asked. Darby has become a responsible adult and yet his family has a hard time letting go of the troubled kid he used to be. Even when Darby is hurting and angry he still won’t let those he loves down. He is seriously loyal which makes him impossible not to love.

Waylynn does not come from a large family and her upbringing, on the road with her father, wasn’t exactly stable, but like Darby, she too is fiercely loyal and has sass for days. The two of them are evenly matched which is initially why they butt heads and stay away from one another, but eventually their attraction becomes too much and their chemistry explodes. Waylynn is there for Darby when his family isn’t and she is the only one who seems to be in his corner letting him know how amazing he really is and when Waylynn eventually needs someone in her corner he is right there too.

Darby has to be my favorite Valentine and I’m really glad he is the final one to round out this series. You’ll love all the updates Lani has included if you’re a fan or if this is your first rodeo, you’ll have no trouble jumping in and enjoying the Valentine family.

Synopsis:

Darby has always been ‘that’ guy.
The guy that no man, woman, or child wants around their loved one.
See, a long time ago he made some bad decisions. Those bad decisions have haunted him ever since. No matter what he does, people still see him as the town’s screw up. The boy that sold his soul to the Devil.
Years later, he’s turned himself around. Made amends and ultimately turned into a generally good guy. Only, it’s hard to act like a good guy when people still treat you like the old you, and not the new you.
Enter Waylynn Jennings.
Waylynn has watched Darby Valentine from afar for a very long time.
She’s witnessed the changes in him and knows the only reason he’s so mean is to protect the man that lies within. A battered, injured soul that deserves more than what he’s received. Even his own family takes him for granted.
She’s made it her new mission in life to prove to everyone that Darby isn’t the bad guy. That he’s a kind-hearted, sweet soul that’s just looking for a place to fit in.
Only, Darby is fairly sure that Waylynn is out to kill him, not help him. How else do you explain all the fights he’s having to break up on her behalf, or all the times he has to come to her rescue when she’s managed to put her cute little butt right in the middle of something where it shouldn’t be?
There’s obviously only one solution. He has to make her his. Then everyone will know not to mess with her. Darby Valentine protects what’s his. No matter what the cost.

(A standalone interconnection)

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

An emotional read about love that spans a lifetime, conquering your demons, and struggling to find your inner strength to find your happiness.

Sawyer has been the rock of his family, the foundation for everyone in his life, but he also hasn’t been entirely happy. On the outside he may appear to have what he needs, but inside he is a wreck. He has been for a very long time, but without time or anyone else to pick up the work he put all feelings into a box and just kept moving. It is years later when work, his time in the military, and his parents death finally break out of that box that he may end up losing the one good thing in his life, Mindy.

Mindy is Sawyer’s sisters best friend. She isn’t quite sure when her love and adoration for him changed into something more, but for her there really hasn’t been anyone else for her. She respects and understands the quiet man, even giving him the space he needs when he returns from his time in the military. As much as she wants more with him, she takes what he is willing to give until the moment he finally pushes her away for the last time. Mindy is told a man will take whatever she is willing to give away, perhaps it is time to stop giving away pieces of herself and start focusing on loving herself instead.

For Mindy and Sawyer they both saw each other as their rock or anchor in each others lives. Someone who was stable and calmed them in their own storm. However, they both had their own personal struggles that they had to overcome before they could truly be each others foundation. Here With Me is a beautiful story of not only overcoming your own personal struggles, but knowing those you love will be by your side no matter what those struggles may be.

Synopsis:

Sawyer LaGrange.
He’s my best friend’s older brother.
He’s quiet, brooding, sinfully sexy 
Dark hair, a scruffy square jaw, and deep lines of muscle I trace my fingers along slowly, followed by my lips…
He always does what’s right.
Until me…
They say you get in life what you have the courage to ask for.
Well, I’m brave.
And I want him.

Secrets.
Everybody has them.
Big, small, innocent… forbidden.
Mindy was a line I should never have crossed.
But I did.
She was beautiful… sassy and tempting,
And rules were made to be broken.
We broke them all.

Now I’m home, released from service with hidden scars.
Now my secrets are the demons that grow stronger every day.
I try to send her away, but I can’t let her go.
She’s my reason to fight, and I’ll walk through hell to be the man she deserves.
To give her a reason to stay here with me.

(HERE WITH ME is a STAND-ALONE best friend’s older brother, second-chance, military romance. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)
