Title: Too Bad So Sad

Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: August 8, 2018
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 pieces.

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 was.
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.

FIVE 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hats from Britt!

Will this be another review filled with me bouncing off the walls in excitement and happiness?




Yes. Yes it will! I devoured Too Bad So Sad in one sitting. Which is pretty much the norm for me with anything Lani Lynn Vale writes if I’m being honest. There’s just nothing quite like Lani’s writing with her unique brand of humor, suspense, heart melting romance, and heat all of which is overflowing in Too Bad So Sad. I found myself swinging from cracking up to swooning and everything in between while reading this.

Reagan and Tyler have sparks flying the second they meet and that electricity doesn’t slow down throughout the entire book. Every encounter filled with fantastic banter as these two try to deny the pull between them until it explodes with some serious heat! I adored Reagan and her inability to follow rules and sassy personality made her so much fun to read. Tyler just as wonderful. Despite his grumpy ways he was actually a great big sweetheart when it came to Reagan.

As always, I don’t want to give to much away because spoilers suck, but Too Bad So Sad is full of as much suspense and action along with moments you do not want to miss as it is full of some seriously fantastic romance!

I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 9, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
