Piper Mackenzie first sees him shirtless, standing in front of the military plane she was about to board, with one rather large wrench in his hand. The fact that he has the plane—the one that she’s about to be flying on for hours—in pieces only minutes before she’s set to take off on it doesn’t faze her. At least not until a flippant joke about dying in mid-air leaves his lips.

The second time she sees him, he’s helping her from the wreckage of her car. The wreckage that he helped cause.

The third, he’s laying across from her in the same bed, and there’s no denying what happened the night before.

The fourth, well that time would be the first of many. Being Mrs. Jonah Crew has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?


Jonah Crew saw her for the first time as she stared at him in awe. It was snowing, the temp was in the negative degrees, and he couldn’t think about anything but her and the look of horror on her face when he tells a badly-timed joke.

The second time he sees her, his heart skips a beat, but not for the reason that one might think. Mainly, it’s due in part to the fact that his truck smashed into her car so hard that his chest hits the steering wheel and his heart decides to stop working right.

The third time, he’s fairly positive that he’s died and gone to heaven. At least, that’s what waking up next to a beautiful woman like her signifies, right?

The fourth? Well, he’s not quite sure how he got there, but he’s already said ‘I do’ so what’s a guy to do?

My Review

I’ve been waiting for Piper Mackenzie’s story ever since meeting her in her sisters’ books. The Mackenzie family is a stubborn, comical, and a bit out of control group who love fiercely and have each other’s backs at all times, even if they do act without thinking at times, making an already chaotic situation, worse.

Piper is so much like her sisters and her mom that all of them together is either one heck of a good time or a situation that will send their men running for cover. I adore the bond they share and the fact that when Piper or her sisters make less than stellar decisions, or even good ones that are made without much thought, their mother and their father do what they can to help while also telling them like it is.

Jonah Crew is a bit of a live wire in the sense that he doesn’t hold anything back. Most people think he’s an asshole, which he would openly admit he is. But he’s different with Piper, and that fact is clear from their very first interaction. They complement each other extremely well, and Piper has a way with him that helps smooth out his rougher edges, not changing him, but bringing out a side of him that very few experience.

The way these two go about a relationship is definitely unconventional, but they make it work because what they’re building, even without truly knowing each other, is something special…is something that neither thought they would have and the fact that they find it with one another makes it that much more fulfilling.

From the start, It Wasn’t Me felt a bit different from Lani Lynn Vale’s usual story line…a lot less drama is within its pages, and it’s more lighthearted than most of her other stories. And, this is exactly the kind of book I needed! And I’m so glad that what happened in Vegas, didn’t stay there:)
