I love broken heroes—something about them just calls to me, and Lani served up a truly broken man in Peter Parker Penn. He’s convinced himself that he’s beyond redemption so he just simply doesn’t reach for it anymore. Kayla is a bit broken and a little lost herself. Not quite sure what she wants to do with her life, she floats from job-to-job looking for something—somewhere—that fits. The daughter of a soldier killed in action, she was practically raised on the Free compound by her father’s best friends, and though they welcomed her with open arms and treated her as one of their own, deep down she still felt like a fifth wheel—like she didn’t quite fit there either.
Vale has really ramped up the suspense plots in this series, and this part of the storyline was action-packed and edge-of-your-seat exciting. Lani’s wild sense of humor was everywhere in this book, and the antics of a filter-less Kayla and her very pregnant best friend, Janie, kept a smile on my face and laughter on my lips. Parker and Kayla were the star of this show, though, and their chemistry was absolutely sizzling.
Maybe Don’t Wanna was everything I hope for when I crack open one of Vale’s books. Full of humor, heart and heat with a dash of suspenseful drama, this story kept me entertained and engaged the whole way through. Five smooches from me for Maybe Don’t Wanna by Lani Lynn Vale!
Maybe Don't Wanna was a fab read and a great addition to The Simple Man series.
I FLOVED Parker & Kayla. Parker hadn't been the best of people growing up.... in with the wrong crowd, caught up in gang crime, he was on his way to a life in jail until he had a chance to turn his life around and that's just what he did. He was his own worst critic and most others around him didn't bother to find out more than what they thought they knew!!
Kayla had no filter, talked a mile a minute and was forever asking questions but she also had a big heart, was loyal to a fault and saw who Parker really was!!
Peter Parker Penn was actually a good guy and I'm glad that Kayla entered his life and opened his own eyes to just who he was!
There was an interesting side story that kinda involved our couple but didn't overwhelm their story. Kinda Don't Wanna was slightly different from other reads of LLVs I thought in so much that although we came across a few of our favourite characters while reading, the majority of the book was about PPP and Kayla and their evolving relationship. They were very similar in some ways and both brought out the best in the other.
Their connection was intense, they were smoking hot together and their conversations had me laughing at points.
Along with a little suspense, a fabulous ex-service dog in Carmen and a great epilogue, KDW was an easy, entertaining and fun read - I hardly put my kindle down as I was hooked by this pair.
Book 2 in this series gets a solid 4.5* rating from me!!
I have a weird (tick, fetish, pet peeve) thing about me. I do not read books where the lead lady is more than 5 years older than the guy. I just don't do it. It weirds me out. I cannot handle it. On the opposite side, I have no problem reading a book where the lead guy is decades older than the lead lady. Seriously, no problems. So it's safe to say that 1. I like this book because Parker is a sexy hot older bearded guy, 2. I love this book because Lani is an amazing writer, and 3. I am in awe that she keeps all of these characters straight and gives us ALL of their stories.
Parker and Kayla's story is really a simple one. There isn't a lot of drama from an ex. Which, don't get me wrong, I love a good drama, but sometimes it's nice to have the easy, simple, love stories. I've always been curious on Parker's story. Lani does a great job of bringing it back and explaining his back story. I was a little shocked to read about his dad and his wives. It made for a good twist to the story and explained why Parker didn't care for him. The story of Gunner and Jett, that one got me all in the feels. As a parent of school age children, I bawled like a baby when this happened. My heart broke for Gunner and for Parker. I cried for the loss of Jett, like he was my own baby. Unfortunately this is a scene not to far off from what has been happening over the last 20+ years in our schools nation wide.
Simply put, this Simple Man's story is an excellent read. This is a prime example on why I love reading Lani's books and I'm hoping and praying she never stops writing and her people never stop talking to her. Their stories feel real. Their love feels real. These characters are you, your mother, brother, sister, father, aunt, uncle, and child's story. They are just real and that is what makes her an excellent author. That is why I preorder ALL of Lani's books each month. I will continue to do so; just don't tell my husband :)
