Review – Somethin’ About That Boy by Lani Lynn Vale

Somethin’ About That Boy 
(An interconnecting standalone within a series)

by: Lani Lynn Vale

Review Rating:



Sigh…Sigh…Sigh…I’m in love with this high school romance. Vale’s books are always excellent and this story is no different. Somethin’ About That Boy is completely centered around high school students and interconnected within Vale’s previous series, but is a complete standalone.

Banner Spurlock is most recently related to Ford (you may remember him from Maybe Swearing Will Help), but while there are several interconnections to Vale’s past works sprinkled throughout this can be read as a complete standalone if this is your first time reading any of her books so don’t feel intimidated to jump in and enjoy.

My absolute favorite moments are when Banner and Perry are together in her room and it’s just the two of them connecting on a deeper level, falling in love…I was mush…pure mush. Both of them know deep down they have deep feelings and although it’s quick, they can’t deny how they feel. It’s sweet and I was smitten, yes, I admit I was full of smit!

Somethin’ About That Boy is the perfect blend of connecting characters of the past, especially for avid Vale readers, but for this new book, this younger world, it was also an introduction to new players and establishing a place for a new series. I’m really excited to jump into Kilgore with this new gang.

Banner is relocated to Kilgore his senior year of high school due to a bullying situation back in his hometown. On his first day of school Perry catches his eye and while she keeps her head down during the school day she lights up the volleyball court when she plays.

The only thing that could possibly mess up the connection Banner and Perry are building is when Banner’s bully follows him to Kilgore. It may involve more than just breaking their hearts, this time his bully could go too far.


Banner Spurlock knew the moment that he walked into Kilgore High School and saw Perry Street that life was about to get interesting.

Forced to move due to a problem at home, a problem in the form of his ex-best friend hating him for something that Banner’s father did, Banner doesn’t think very much could improve in his life.

He left his status as king of Benton High School behind and moved to a new school where not only would he have to try out for a new football team and prove himself, but he’d also have to find a place for himself in the hierarchy.

Only, the moment that he arrives, he knows that finding a place for himself won’t be too hard. Especially when his reputation follows him all the way to Kilgore, Texas.


Perry Street hates school. She hates her peers—most of them anyway—and she hates her classes. All she wants to do is finish her senior year, graduate, and find a place that will give her a full scholarship so that she doesn’t have to be stuck here forever.

That’s her goal, anyway.

Then she walks into first period, on her first day of her senior year, and sits down. Seconds later, he walks in and changes every single plan she’s ever made.

It isn’t long before Perry starts to fall for the bad boy who doesn’t care who he does and doesn’t impress. The boy makes her heart flutter. The boy makes her want things that she’s never wanted before. Not ever.

The boy brings trouble with him that nearly kills her.

New Release – Cutter by Laramie Briscoe

Title: Cutter
Series: Laurel Springs Emergency Response Team #4
Author: Laramie Briscoe
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 5, 2020

From USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author comes the next book in the Laurel Springs Emergency Response Team.

Trust Laramie Briscoe to provide engaging characters in a well-built world I want to revisit again and again. Carly Phillips, NY Times bestselling author.

The storm raging in the Gulf isn’t the only thing brewing between these two…

Cutter Thompson

Hurricane Tatum, a category five storm hell-bent on making landfall along the Alabama coast, is my opportunity, to show my friends and family the kind of man I’ve become.

The kid who lost his scholarship and the love is life is ready for a change. A change I’m equal parts scared will and won’t come.

An EMT wasn’t my first choice of careers, but it’s become my calling. When the winds die down, the skies clear, and the rain stops, we’re left with devastation the likes of which I’ve never seen.

What I come to realize is ugly destruction can be beautiful, if we can only figure out what perspective to see it.

Rowan Baker

The LSERT is a godsend, especially as us local first responders emerge from our shelters to see our town and homes destroyed. It’s going to take time to rebuild.

Rebuilding is what I’m used to. After I watched my four-year-old daughter die in my arms I’ve done nothing but try to find a reason to live.

But I’ve got baggage. Memories, an ex-husband, and a fear I won’t be able to save everyone.

When I meet Cutter Thompson, he reminds me rebuilding can mean letting go of fear and allowing myself to live the life I’ve wanted all along.

A see yourself out note isn’t how you want to celebrate the morning after your first one- night stand.


The first time I meet Archer Callahan is when I block him in a parking spot.

The second is a fender bender.

The third is at a bar, drinking away our problems, and finding our way to his bed.


I never expected to see him again.

That changes when a month later, he’s introduced as my brother’s new business partner.

In need of a job, I’m hired at their bar, much to Archer’s dismay.


We hate each other.

We’re off limits.

But every time we’re together, flashbacks of that night shake through us.

We push, we pull, until one of us breaks.

ReviewRead Kay’s Review: One Click Love

Want a man who is not only hot but knows how to handle a blaze?
Well ladies, it’s your lucky day.

John “Mack” McPherson is 6’3” of fine with a six-pack that makes men half his
age question their gym regimen. Teddy-bear brown eyes with brown hair, his graying
temples let you flirt with just enough silver fox so you know you’ve got yourself a real
man. But don’t let the body and face fool you, he’s incredibly smart, with medals for
days and won’t think twice about putting his own life on the line to save someone else.

Brave, dependable, and needing someone equally awesome,
Mack is ready to be
snapped up by a feisty female who isn’t scared to play with fire.


Not sure how feisty I am now, but I’m fighting my way back. Little scares me
though, and I’m not someone who breaks easily. Not interested in playing mind games,
so if your idea of a good time is heading to a club where we pretend to be into the scene, then it’s probably for the best we don’t meet. I expect honesty and a half-way decent orgasm I don’t have to give myself. Other than that, open to negotiation.

Let me know if you’re game,

About the Author:
T Gephart is a USA Today and International bestselling author from Melbourne, Australia.

With an approach to life that is somewhat unconventional, she prefers to fly by the seat of her pants rather than adhere to some rigid roadmap. Her lack of “plan” has resulted in a rather interesting and eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history. She’d tell you all about it, but the statute of limitations hasn’t expired yet. But all those crazy twists and turns have led her to a career she loves—writing romantic comedy.

When she isn’t filling pages with sassy and sexy characters with attitude, she’s living her own reality show in the ‘burbs of Melbourne with her American husband, two teenage children, and her fur child—Woodley.

She loves adventure, to laugh, travel, and strives to live her life to the fullest.
