Let’s do a calendar, they said. It’ll be fun, they said.
Well, they—i.e. Kilgore Police Department’s public relations specialists—were wrong.
Now, every time Dax Tremaine walks around a corner, the women of Kilgore, Texas can’t help calling him Mr. January.
Mr. January, can you fix my flat tire? Mr. January, can you cuff me? Mr. January, can you sign my boob?
It goes from bad to worse when even on a SWAT call, the women won’t stay away.
It was the worst time of her life. Rowen Roberts had finally admitted to herself that the man she loved would never love her back. She was just fired from her job for violating client confidentiality, and to make matters worse, she’s held up at gunpoint in a convenience store where she only wanted some ice cream to help mask the pain.
The moment the gun is pressed to her forehead, she knows she has a decision to make. Follow the rules and maybe possibly live, or go down swinging where at least she can salvage just a little bit of her dignity.
And when Mr. January himself tells her to do what the gunman says, she’s had enough. Rowen has never really been a girl that does what she’s told. Mr. January won’t have to save her. She can dang well save herself.
5 STAR Review
I make it no secret that I love LLV. I love all her books. I love getting to know her characters and falling in love with each and every one of them. So here’s my sorry confession, I just finished the Freebirds books. I’m glad I did because I absolutely love Max. He might be one of my favorite characters to date of LLV. But…then she had to go and introduce me to Dax. Good lord, that man is more than I could have asked for.
Dax is amazing. He’s good. He’s hard-working and he’s been through the wringer. My heart broke for Dax. My heart hurt for the things he’s been through. Rowen is everything I always imagined she would be and so much more. These two have amazing chemistry and made me smile more times than I could count. There were parts of this book that I thought I might have to come through the book and beat LLV, but she redeemed herself.
I love this story and I’m so, so excited to see what’s to come from SWAT 2.0. I love getting to read our next generation. I feel like I’m seeing my family grow right in front of me.
