Title: Maybe Don't Wanna
Series: The Simple Man Series #2
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romance Suspense
Release Date: May 4, 2018

Peter Parker Penn.
Unlike the superhero his mother named him after, Parker is no good guy.
In fact, if there’s a picture in the dictionary under anti-hero, it’s his.
Parker’s spent his life trying to get back on the right side of the tracks, but each step he takes forward, he takes two more steps back.
To save one, he hurts others. To make this good, he turns that bad.
For appearances’ sake, he plays the part. He does what people expect him to do—mostly. And at the end of each day, he goes back to his lonely apartment and wishes he was a different person. One who could fix the things he’s broken.
Then Kayla Nash forces her way into his life, and the world as he knows it is irrevocably changed.
Everything he thinks he has right is wrong. And everything he thinks is wrong is oh, so right.
One thing leads to another, and suddenly he’s growing a conscience, and trying to prove to her that he’s as bad as everybody says he is.
Yet she won’t listen.
She’s convinced that she can save him.
Little does she know, Parker isn’t worth saving, and never will be.

I love all things LLV, however - I loved Peter Parker Penn more than any other character ever!! Y'all he had to be my all-time favorite...even more than Ghost. This book rated right up there with Counter to My Intelligence and that's saying something because I've read that book probably 6 times! I loved him sooo hard!! What he went through losing his sister and then his nephew?! The way his dad treated him? And then there is Kayla and she is such a breath of fresh air who has her own demons and he wants to slay them. Gosh, this was the best book in forever!! I want to buy the paperback of this and keep it. I was shocked at how much I loved Parker because in all the other books he's made out to be this "bad" or "complex" character and you just wind up falling for him and his damaged dog. This was such a character driven book and unlike any of LLV's other books, in that she usually relies on the suspense and this time it was more the backstory that we got to read about...It was a stellar storyline!!

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.
