Get Bucked; The Valentine Boys #4
(A standalone within a series)
by: Lani Lynn Vale
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.
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.
