MAY CONTAIN WINE

Release Date: May 12
Those are the words that Calloway Alvarez chants to herself as she watches all the large men gather into the small room where she’ll be doing the interviews for her employer—Hero Magazine.
Honestly, she’s convinced herself that she can’t accomplish the task at hand.
That is until she hears his voice, and her head turns to see him standing there.
Louis Spurlock. Greek god. SWAT officer. Keeper of her secrets. Ultimate fantasy. Man who will break her heart.
Louis Spurlock has been playing nice.
He’s been biding his time, giving Calloway the space she thinks she needs.
But then he sees her taking photos of his friends in all states of undress, talking to them all as if they’re best friends, and that little thread of control he’d been managing to hold onto unravels.
Let’s change it up, she says. And the moment the words are out of her mouth, he’s stripping to his skivvies, and throwing out a challenge while he’s at it.
Calloway won’t know what hit her when he’s through playing.
But he does know one thing for sure. When it ends, she’ll be his.

The second generation of SWAT is shaping up to be just as crazy and as wonderful as the original series, and it’s because of the intriguing characters Lani Lynn Vale crafts, the crazy antics that abound in the story lines, and the family feel of these essential workers.
Louis is an interesting hero; he knows he messed up all those years ago when he broke up with Calloway, but he did what he had to do for himself and for her. And, even though he regrets it, he gives her the space she thinks she needs in order for them to move forward together. And while Calloway tries her best to stay mad and keep her distance from Louis, he’s done allowing her to shut him out, and ultimately, he finds his in and doesn’t let go of her, especially when things get dicey when she finally does reunite with him.
Calloway is an easy heroine to love because, despite some setbacks and a few obstacles, she keeps moving forward, focusing on what she wants to achieve and doing her best to live life fully. The fact that she has a blog and its focus is on the men and women who serve says a lot about the type of person she is. She’s a relatable main character who readers can see themselves in due to her insecurities, the fact that she second-guesses herself, and how she views her limitations given her anemia.
Second chance romances is a trope that I can’t get enough of and the way Vale writes these kind of stories provides the necessary background information about the hero and heroine’s past that proves why their future should only be way enjoyed together.
