Get You Some (Simple Man #3) by Lani Lynn Vale


You want some?

She snarls those words at him with barely concealed hostility the moment he arrives at her window to ask for her license and registration.

After a few choice words, he lets her go with not one ticket, but three.

Next time she should check the attitude at the door and realize that he’s a cop, and just doing his job.

Come get some.

Fast forward a week, and he’s still unable to think about anything else but her and her bad attitude—oh, and those sexy lips, angry eyes, and her promise to make his life hell.

Knowing he should stay away, he takes a step back and tries not to think about anything that has to do with those long legs, and that mouth that could be used for much better things than spewing venom.
Then she makes a mistake.

At an interview, she rattles off a random number to use as a reference for a job that she desperately needs, and that number just happens to be Johnny’s. 

She’ll regret being so rude, and one day she’ll think twice when she decides to throw attitude toward a man like him.

Vowing to make her life hell, he decides to have a little fun.

Never get enough.

What he doesn’t expect is to fall for her.

The more Johnny learns about June, the deeper he digs his hole. Soon, he doesn’t know which way is up, and he’s just fine with that.

Over time, he learns that not everyone bothers to dig past her prickly demeanor and get to the woman that lives deeper.

When one too many citizens of Hostel, Texas tries to back her against the wall, he’s had enough.

After all, you don’t mess with what’s his.

I'm a big Johnny Cash fan.  So any book that has Johnny and June and they end up together, I'm sold.   Lock, stock, and barrel.

No need to read anymore of my review because it is all glowing.

If you're still reading I'll give you some fodder as to why to read the book.

I was immediately drawn to June.  She's had a tough life coming from the parents she has in a small town.  Not that I can relate.  My parents were not into drugs.  But I love imperfection and characters that overcome hardship with sass and style.  June is all that and a bag of chips. (I think that is an outdated saying, isn't it?)

Enter Johnny and well, he does kind of save the day and June (the character, not the month).  But not necessarily a knight in shining armor riding in on a white horse.  More like carrying a gun and being a cop and pulling her over. While he doesn't tame the sass that is June, he embraces it.

Like usual, Lani Lynn Vale drew me in with the chemistry and dynamics of her characters.  The plot was on point and everything about this one was a joy to read. And it's JOHNNY AND JUNE.  You can't go wrong.
