Booth Pena definitely didn’t make the smartest of decisions when he was a teenager.
At eighteen, he knocked a girl up and signed up for the military all in the same day—signing his life away in more ways than one. Fast forward six weeks and he’s in bootcamp learning that he’s going to be a father while also learning that not only is he going to be deployed, but it’s going to stay that way for a year.
There weren’t a lot of things that the baby’s mother and he saw eye to eye on after that. He honestly wasn’t sure why he even slept with her in the first place.
Okay, that last part is a lie. He knows exactly why he slept with her. Because the real woman he’s in love with, her twin sister, Dillan, won’t give him the time of day.
Five years later, and he still wants her.
Now he’s home for good, being the best father and police officer that he can be, and still he’s not good enough.
Dillan Davidsdottir hated Booth Pena. Immensely.
She hated him because he slept with her sister, then left. Granted, she knew that he hadn’t meant to leave like he did, unknowingly and unconsciously leaving his son behind, but that didn’t change the fact that he had.
Five years later, and she still dislikes him just as much now as she did when he chose the wrong sister to take to his bed.
Maybe if he’d chosen her, her heart wouldn’t be broken, and his wouldn’t be untouchable.
But when a SWAT officer sees his life flash before his eyes, and decides that enough is enough, what’s a girl to do?
Give in, that’s what.
Whew! I really was excited for Booth’s story and boy was I not disappointed!! So, I’ve seen some bad reviews for this story but if you actually read the book then you get the whole story. Everything in life isn’t black and white, sometimes we need to move past what we “think” rather than the truth of the matter. There isn’t a book that I don’t absolutely love of Lani’s.
Booth makes a mistake when he is 18 then he’s off to the Army with multiple deployments. When he’s done with the military, he moves home to be with and help raise his son.
Dillan’s crush sleeps with her twin sister which totally devastates her. She’s moved on and helps her sister raise the sweetest little boy. When Booth comes back she’s still a little angry but she works with the whole situation and finds herself falling for Booth again but can she ever get past Booth and her sister being together all those years ago?
This book was a little out of the ordinary for a Lani Lynn Vale book, but it kept it so interesting. I love the craziness Ms Vale instills in her books. There is never a dull moment. This was an amazing story that was full of love and I laughed quite a bit too!
Oh my goodness is Jokes On You packed full of drama and craziness. And of course, I loved every single moment in the book. I’m so happy we got Booth’s story. Everyone and their brother knows that Dillan is the one that he should end up with. Timing was never right, until it was.
I love this love story with all of my heart. A badass military turned SWAT man will make any woman’s heart go pitter patter. Add in a down to earth woman who loves kids and a passion for baking and you have a match made in heaven. I am just dying to get Bourne’s story in Join the Club. Just one month to go!!
