This is for charity. This is for fun. You are a professional. You can do it.
Those are the words that Calloway Alvarez chants to herself as she watches all the large men gather into the small room where she’ll be doing the interviews for her employer—Hero Magazine.
Honestly, she’s convinced herself that she can’t accomplish the task at hand.
That is until she hears his voice, and her head turns to see him standing there.
Louis Spurlock. Greek god. SWAT officer. Keeper of her secrets. Ultimate fantasy. Man who will break her heart.
Louis Spurlock has been playing nice.
He’s been biding his time, giving Calloway the space she thinks she needs.
But then he sees her taking photos of his friends in all states of undress, talking to them all as if they’re best friends, and that little thread of control he’d been managing to hold onto unravels.
Let’s change it up, she says. And the moment the words are out of her mouth, he’s stripping to his skivvies, and throwing out a challenge while he’s at it.
Calloway won’t know what hit her when he’s through playing.
But he does know one thing for sure. When it ends, she’ll be his.

I’ve come to be a big fan of Lani Lynn Vale. I haven’t read all of her books, haven’t even read any of the original SWAT series I don’t think. But at some point, if I ever have any extra time, I’ll want to go back and try them. For now I’m going to continue enjoying this second generation of the characters that are the kids of that original series.
Something I’ve noticed is a bit of a formula for these stories, and I like that I have a pretty good idea. Basically about the first half is spent with the two falling in love and finding their happiness together. There are little hints placed in the story, as well as small events that lead up to the big happenings in the second half of the story. There’s always one more smaller scare in the relationship towards the end, but I like how, at least in the ones I’ve read, we’re spending the last half seeing how they will make it together when the big bad things come around. In a way it’s like getting the “after” the HEA that I’ve often wondered about with other favorite stories.
The heroine, Calloway, was one that I definitely felt many similarities with. Especially the way she felt about herself. It was also fun to read about the school day to day for the school nurse job she had. However, as someone who has been a teacher and now a librarian for the past 24 years, I had to stop and point out on my Goodreads status update about a comment the characters made about how having visitors wear a name badge seemed a waste of time. Yeah, but it also is part of the security itself. It may not seem that helpful, but to get one, they’ve already gone through the office, and this way staff in the school know when they see someone wandering the building that isn’t supposed to be there if they should escort them to the office, or if they’ve already been checked in. So that is the reasoning. Okay, off my soap box about that.
Another great story from this author, and I will have to make sure I get signed up on as many of her books as I can in the future.
