“You’re crazy,” I told him. “I’m nothing special.”
“You’re everything special.”
I'd Rather Not by Lani Lynn Vale is the third book in the KPD series and has all the feels. Seriously, every book I read from this author is above and beyond amazing but I honestly think she's written one of my favorite's with this one. Our lovely heroine Oakley is the daughter of Viddy and Trance from Kevlar to My Vest (The Heroes of the Dixie Wardens MC #3). You may remember them as the couple who happened to have heterochromia (different colored eyes) and they passed on the trait to their kids, Oakley and her brother Ford. All right, enough back story. Let's get on with the show.
"I stared at the man that was quickly beginning to steal every single piece of my heart. One slow second at a time."
Even before Oakley and Pace meet, there's a connection. Oakley sends care packages to her brother Ford, who shares it with his brothers in arms and just happens to include Pace. Pace is enchanted by pictures of Oakley and the love she puts in the packages for her brother. One day while opening up one of those packages, Ford, Pace and the team are attacked, with Pace losing his feet and one of their brothers losing his life. The Army has always been his dream job and without his legs, Pace is at a bit of a crossroads as to what to do. At the same time, Oakley is also dealing with issues as she has contracted an infection that has destroyed her kidneys and will have to be on dialysis until they can find her a new kidney.
"I knew from the moment that I met you that I was put on this Earth to change your life."
Fast forward four years later and Oakley's time is nearly up. Her kidneys are now completely failing and without a donor, she will die. So when Pace sees a desperate post from Oakley's father, he knows that he has to help the girl who has never left his thoughts. And when they finally meet, thus begins the sweetest romance, ever. The swoon factor in this book is off the charts and I adored every flipping second of it.
“I love when you smile at me. I love when you throw yourself in my arms, knowing without a single doubt in your mind that I’ll catch you. I love that you talk to me like I’m your closest confidant and your best friend. I love that you called your dad to talk about us and not your mom. I love that you love me.”
Pace and Oakley are relationship goals. They are super sweet together and I love that Oakley's family immediately embraces Pace as one of their own. I love that Pace does everything he can to make her see that no matter how much time they may have together, every second will be worth it. My heart!! I can't stand how utterly perfect Pace is. This is definitely a new favorite book of mine from LLV.
One thing Lani does exceptionally well is matching her couples. I’d Rather Not pairs a double-amputee hero with a heroine in desperate need of a kidney, and I was riveted by their story. There were so many connections between this couple before they even met, and their love story had a strong fated feeling to it that I absolutely loved. These two needed each other, in more ways than one, and the two of them were kindred spirits of sorts. The lengths that Pace went to in order to save Oakley’s life were the epitome of a grand gesture. Kind, patient, protective and generous, Pace was an utterly swoon-worthy hero, and Oakley, the one woman who saw beyond his physical imperfections to the perfect-for-her man beneath, was his ideal match.
This romance begins an unconventional first meeting, but Pace’s feeling for his friend’s sister began years early as he lived vicariously through him to experience Oakley’s love and care. For her part, she learned about the lonely soldier in her brother’s unit from him, and she started to include things he’d like in her care packages to her brother. Years later, when Pace learns about Oakley’s plight, he doesn’t hesitate to find a way to help. This is where Vale creates her magic–by delivering a knee-weakeningly romantic love story rooted in, of all things, an organ donation, and as strange as that sounds, it totally works. She peppers this story with plenty of screen time from Oakley’s parents, fan favorites, Trance and Viddy, and weaves a suspenseful subplot into the background that brings more favorite characters into play.
I’d Rather Not is an engaging mix of the past and the future, and Vale fills the pages with all of the heat, heart and humor that her suspenseful romances are known for. I loved everything about Pace and Oakley’s love story, and this series is quickly becoming a favorite. I’d Rather Not by Lani Lynn Vale gets five smooches from me!

Little Oakley is grown up but becomes I'll after the flu to the point she needs a new kidney.
Pace was with Ford in the army and loved how Oakley would send her little brother care packages,looking at one when a roadside bomb goes off,he wakes to find hes needs both legs removed and his team mate cherry had died.
Back home he sees Oakley's father's post asking for a donor,he gets checked and is a match,hes then dragged into the spurlock's crazy family!
Their story is tough, emotional and filled with intense scenes. With my heart in my throat from the very beginning I devoured this book in one sitting and loved it completely.
