Let’s do a calendar, they said. It’ll be fun, they said.
Well, they—I.e. Kilgore Police Department’s public relations specialists—were wrong.
Now, every time Dax Tremaine walks around a corner, the women of Kilgore, Texas can’t help calling him Mr. January.
Mr. January, can you fix my flat tire? Mr. January, can you cuff me? Mr. January, can you sign my boob?
It goes from bad to worse when even on a SWAT call, the women won’t stay away.
It was the worst time of her life. Rowen Roberts had finally admitted to herself that the man she loved would never love her back. She was just fired from her job for violating client confidentiality, and to make matters worse, she’s held up at gunpoint in a convenience store where she only wanted some ice cream to help mask the pain.
The moment the gun is pressed to her forehead, she knows she has a decision to make. Follow the rules and maybe possibly live, or go down swinging where at least she can salvage just a little bit of her dignity.
And when Mr. January himself tells her to do what the gunman says, she’s had enough. Rowen has never really been a girl that does what she’s told. Mr. January won’t have to save her. She can dang well save herself.

Review: SWAT Generation 2.0 #1: Just Kidding
Just Kidding by Lani Lynn Vale is the first book in her SWAT Generation 2.0 series. Focusing on the younger members of the Kilgore Police Departments SWAT team this book is Dax Tremaine and Rowen Roberts’ story.
Rowen is doing the best she can but as an intern in a San Antonio law firm and with a hostile coworker she has had just about enough. When hostile coworker takes things so far beyond the limits of too far Rowen realizes it time to go home to Kilgore.
Despite his in personal demons Dax agrees to e part of a fundraising calendar. As Mr. January he also gets to go first. Taking the chiefs daughter with him as a favor is the least he can do. Especially when she’s as much in need of a break as anyone could be.
Between Rowen’s strength and kindness and Dax’s sweet and patient outlook these two hit it off big time. There are, of course, a few hiccups along the way, but between his horrible ex and her horrible ex coworker there is enough drama to keep the story fast paced, a little shocking, and filled with the awesome insta-love I have come to expect from a Lani Lynn Vale story. Enjoy!
I love getting to know the kids from. the original series, and I love how they interact with each other from different series. It feels like "coming home" yet it is still fresh and hilarious. Another five star read from Lani Lynn Vale that made me not want to put it down and if work hadn't interfered then I would have finished this in a matter of hours versus days!
So excited for the next generation of SWAT!
So excited for the next generation of SWAT! This author definitely started this series off with a bang with Rowen and her work nemesis turned all-around nemesis and bully! Finally done with school and looking to move home, her decision is made for her when her work bully does the unforgivable that totally shocked me as a reader! What was even crazier is how this person continues to pop up into her life and provide havoc. Dax shows up in Rowen’s life at the perfect time when she returns home and is trying to start her professional life. He’s not afraid that she’s his boss’s daughter, and he sticks up for her and supports her in everything she does. The chemistry between these two, especially after Rowen’s mishaps makes this story even better, and per usual we get the suspense and anticipation from the rest of this author’s stories but even better having read the first generations’ stories. Readers are definitely more invested in the second generation after having read the first, and I can’t wait for the next one!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
