I am going to be re-posting some of my older blogs from when I began blogging with some edits and new comments.
Angie is a survivor. Anything you could throw at her, she could overcome. After her father left her like a pile of unwanted trash, she began fighting. Fighting to build a life. Fighting to keep her child. Fighting to matter.
She thought she had it all figured out.
Then Bowen Race Tannenbaum walks into her life, turning it into a flurry of confusion, hope, and then ultimately despair. He tore down, brick-by-brick, her carefully constructed world, leaving her heart in tatters and longing for more. Such as a happily ever after, something that wasn’t ever going to happen for her. Not when she couldn’t give him what he wanted. He’d break her, and she couldn’t be put back together a second time.
Bowe wasn’t always so jaded, but when you keep drawing a losing hand, it tends to affect a man. He didn’t mean to lash out so carelessly. But he was so over being told no. He was done being lied to. He was through with being cheated on.
This time, his heart was getting what it wanted. If Angie wasn’t able to see what he was offering, what was right here in front of her, well then, he’d just have to damn well show her.
My review: 5 stars
What to say about this book…..HOT! INTENSE! STEAMY! It’s full of action, drama, and suspense!!
You have Angie and Bowe.
Angie is a 23 year old single mother who has a rough past and some major family drama. She is a very strong and independent woman but she is also very guarded and protective of her heart.
Bowe is a 32 year old fire-fighter/paramedic who works for Kilgore Fire (tied to the past 4 books.) He is a hardworking man but is unlucky in the love department.
Bowe is kind of thrown into Angie’s life after he is attacked one day . (I don’t want to spoil who attacks him.) They had met before but nothing ever came from their past interactions. As time goes on, you begin to see the chemistry they have with each other but you can also feel the sexual tension. Angie is trying to keep Bowe at bay but he is determined to break her walls down.
“I’m not going to force myself on you. I can tell you’re not ready. But when you’re done with school…when this s*** with your ex is behind you…I’m coming for you, and there’s not one thing in this entire world that can stop me. Not even you”
Bowe wants to show her how she should be loved and treated. How her daughter should be loved and treated. (The story behind her daughter is CRAZY!!! ) As Angie and Bowe start to get closer, people from her past keep showing back up. ( And these are not good people.)
Will her past ruin her future?
Will her past ruin Bowe’s future?
Put Out was so good. I was sucked into the story and read the entire book in one day. I loved the chemistry between Angie and Bowe but I also loved how hard headed and independent each character was. They brought so much to the storyline.
I love Lani Lynn Vale. I have read almost all of her books and she never lets me down. I love the passion you can see in her writing and how she can take a typical topic and turn it into something spectacular. Her books always leave me wanting more and she always delivers. I loved how all her books are connected somehow. How she can keep up with all the different people and their jobs and relationships is beyond me but it is amazing. One of my favorite things about Lani Lynn Vale, is that at the beginning of each chapter in all her books is a funny quote, or saying, or thought. Such as “In alcohol’s defense, I’ve done some dumb s*** completely sober, too.” These add-ons to each chapter are awesome.
If you haven’t read any of her books, you are missing out!
