Join the Club; SWAT Generation 2.0 #7
(A standalone within a series)
by: Lani Lynn Vale
I love this continuation of the Pena-Davidsdottir story. I knew several books ago when it was hinted that both brothers had a thing for the sisters and that there was a child in the mix between them that my inner drama-llama would love it and Vale did not disappoint!!
We got a glimpse of Bourne and Delanie in the last book (Joke’s On You) and because the Pena brothers and the Davidsdottir sisters are identical twins both stories do intersect at points. I would recommend reading the first book before this one, as I do feel that they blend well together more than any other book in this 2.0 generation. Yes, you could read Join the Club as a standalone, but I feel you would enjoy it more after having read Booth and Dillon’s book.
I love that both siblings have been in love with the opposite twin forever, but due to an evil, heinous mixup, that did result in a beautiful little boy, neither couple has really moved on. Bourne swears he will never encroach on Booth’s baby mama, Delanie. Even though Bourne’s been in Asa’s life since the very beginning, at his brother’s insistence, he gave up entering the military to be there for Delanie and Asa while Booth was deployed. Then Bourne gave up using his education degree when Booth returned home so they could be on the SWAT force together and certainly not last, he’s given up the one woman who makes his blood pump faster than anything, all in the name of his brother. Bourne feels like his life has been on hold forever, but he loves his family and he wouldn’t change a thing, well, maybe one thing and Delanie is the one thing he finally decides to take for himself.
Delanie has been in love with Bourne for forever. Yes, she has a baby with Booth but she was never in love with him. When Bourne finally makes a move, she is more than happy to jump on board, but eventually things get complicated and her worst fears may finally come true. She never factored in her domineering father, her growing business, and the complications of being with a brooding SWAT twin.
Will life with the Pena boys ever be easy?
There are a few lessons one has to learn for themselves. Then there are the lessons that most people don’t have to learn because it’s just not done.
For instance, most people know instinctively that they shouldn’t crave the mother of their brother’s child.
Bourne Pena isn’t most men.
Bourne does everything he can to fight the attraction he feels for Delanie, but in the end, his refusal to go there almost ends up costing him his life.
Delanie Davidsdottir just wanted to forget. One night, she wanted to feel like a normal human being.
That one night changes her life and gives her a son that becomes her heart and soul. From that point forward, she does her level best to keep her head on straight and not make any more mistakes.
And falling for her child’s father’s twin brother—say that three times fast— would be a mistake. Not only is he Trouble with a capital T, he’s also a SWAT officer that puts his life on the line every single day.
She can’t take another loss like the one she suffered once before.
Then again, Delanie never encountered a man like Bourne Pena before, either.
