Normally when you say, “I have a stalker,” you think bad thoughts. That wasn’t the kind of stalker Folsom was when it came to Kobe Sano. Folsom liked to call herself a “guardian angel in disguise.”
The first time he catches her attention, he’s been assigned to hunt her down and throw away the key. All she did was steal someone else’s child. Well, embryo, that is. What Kobe doesn’t know, though, is the man that hired him is up to no good, and she has no other choice but to run without looking back.
From that moment on, she spends the rest of her spare time running away from him while also digging into every nook and cranny of his personal life, finding every weakness he has and utilizing it any way she needs to keep herself one step ahead of him.
Only one day, when she goes to do her usual snooping, she finds out that not only is her favorite person in trouble, but he’s also in need of her help.
Too bad it takes her years to find that help.
Her next step is to break him out of the pokey prison-break style.
If she knew he’d go without question, she very well might have.

It didn’t take a genius to know when someone was stalking you. The signs were all there, and they eventually pointed right at Folsom.
When he figures it out, he plans to confront her and maybe address the silent sexual tension that’s been brewing between them for the last few years.
However, right when he’s ready to admit to himself that she might be the one—daughter who intimidates the hell out of him or not—she up and disappears for a year.
In that year, he spends every waking moment searching for her.
And eventually he finds her, confronts her, and is hit in the face with the secrets she’s kept from him for years.
One of which is a big one.
The daughter that she protects with everything she has—the one that he’s come to love with all his heart, just like her mom—is the very abducted child from his one and only unsolved case.
Saving the best for last!
The last and the most anticipated book with the most elusive characters is here. And it sends out this series with a big bang!
What a fabulous read! I couldn’t have asked for a better final book for this series. I couldn’t have even anticipated the lengths these characters have gone to to be the most important people in each others lives without really being in each others lives. It’s so rich and complex and just so darn good!
One Wild Ride
Per usual, author Lani Lynn Vale has taken us on the twistiest, turniest, most unpredictable journey in her latest, I'LL JUST DATE MYSELF, the final book in her Gator Bait MC series.
These folks have the craziest lives ever, and we never know just where Lani's going to take us, but that's what makes her books so much fun. The Folsom that we get in I'LL JUST DATE MYSELF is a bit different than she's been in previous books, and Lani starts off with a note letting us know this. Hey, the Muse does what the Muse wants, and authors and their readers just have to follow along. We finally get Folsom's backstory, along with that of her daughter, JP, and it is wild. Kobe Sano has had quite the less-than-average life, too, and it's a wonder that he ended up being one of the good guys at the end of it all.
I'm not quite sure what I'd do with myself if I ended up in the situations that Lani's characters do, but they surely do make for some good storytelling, and definitely keep me coming back for more. While this book marks the end of the Gator Bait MC series, I have no doubt that we'll be seeing more of these folks in future books, as Lani does like to revisit prior series and bring folks in for cameos. Up next is the Welcome to the Circus series, which Lani has very nicely paved the way for with I'LL JUST DATE MYSELF, and it's looking like tons of fun, so buckle up and get ready for more shenanigans to come. ❤️
