Tyler Cree has never been good at the whole look and don’t touch thing.
From the moment he was old enough to walk on his
own two feet, he’s been looking for trouble.

Trouble comes in many forms…quite a few of those
forms being the female persuasion.

Tyler knows what girls want—a bad boy. And he has
the bad boy image down pat.

Hot cop—double check.
A bike between his legs and a devil may care
attitude—oh, yeah.

All the girls want him, yet none of them will have
him—at least not all of him, anyway. A certain appendage they can have all they want. His
heart, however, is not up for grabs. The useless organ inside his chest was broken and
battered, mutilated by the one woman he thought would keep it safe.

Spoiler alert: she ripped it to shreds and set fire to the

To protect himself, Tyler keeps everyone at arm’s
length, and never lets anyone get too close.

Then Reagan Rose Alvarez barrels into his life, and
trespasses on not only his property, but straight into his abused heart. One glance is all it takes,
and he’s suddenly thinking about things he hasn’t thought for quite some time—thoughts that a
man like him should never have about a woman like her.

One moment of weakness is all it takes, and suddenly
he has no other choice but to go on the offensive.

Keeping her is the only other option now.
Turns out, his heart isn’t as broken as he thought it
The only problem is, now the little she-devil holds it in the palm of her hands, and she has no clue just how much power she holds.

[ I received an ARC for an honest review]

I really enjoyed Too Bad So Sad by Lani Lynn Vale. This is technically book 5 in the Simple Man series but it can be read as a standalone, which is what I did and didn’t feel like I was missing anything. It was a quick read back with hot steamy romance and great characters.

Hands down my favorite character was Reagan, probably because she reminded me a lot of my own personality. She is quiet and keeps to herself to outsiders but snarky and passionate with those she loves. Her I don’t give a fuck attitude is one I tend to have myself.

I was, by definition, a very shy person. Until someone pissed me off, then not so much.”

Tyler was a great character too. He’s a hot cop with a heart of gold that’s been burned by his ex and left him with no desire to be in a relationship. He’s dominating in and out of the bedroom, making for some intense sex scenes that were hot as hell.

 “I want to claim every single part of you,” he said into the darkness [. ..] I want you to feel me when I’m not there.”

Reagan and Tyler both try to deny their attraction for each other. While Tyler ages to a one time thing, Reagan already knows from the start that once will never be enough. They both have some baggage to work through, and he has some major trust issues, but they take the time to help each other heal

 I definitely see myself picking up another Lani Lynn Vale book in the future for a steamy read.

” Oh, God. I had the hots for this man and it was burning me up inside. You weren’t supposed to be attracted to a person who pissed you off.”


“I was scared. I was worried. I was in love with a risk taker. I was fucking screwed.”
