Title: Put Out
Series: Kilgore Fire Series #5
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Angie is a survivor. Anything you could throw at her, she could overcome.
After her father left her like a pile of unwanted trash, she began fighting. Fighting to build a life. Fighting to keep her child. Fighting to matter.
She thought she had it all figured out.
Then Bowen Race Tannenbaum walks into her life, turning it into a flurry of confusion, hope, and then ultimately despair. He tore down, brick-by-brick, her carefully constructed world, leaving her heart in tatters and longing for more. Such as a happily ever after, something that wasn’t ever going to happen for her. Not when she couldn’t give him what he wanted. He’d break her, and she couldn’t be put back together a second time.
Bowe wasn’t always so jaded, but when you keep drawing a losing hand, it tends to affect a man. He didn’t mean to lash out so carelessly. But he was so over being told no. He was done being lied to. He was through with being cheated on.
This time, his heart was getting what it wanted. If Angie wasn’t able to see what he was offering, what was right here in front of her, well then, he’d just have to damn well show her.
This is the fifth book in the Kilgore Fire series. They are complete stand alones, but you do see previous characters in each book. I have loved all of Lani’s books, for each series. What I love the most is how each series is connected.
I am so happy to finally have Bowe’s story. I’ve loved him since we first met him. He’s a great guy and it shows in this book.
Angie is awesome too. I can completely understand her feelings towards her dad. Benn there, done that, got the t-shirt myself.
What she went through because of her dad, and the eil steps, plus what Troy put her through and did to her, damn. I have no words. But It did make her a stronger person. She’s a great mom and will do any and every thing for her baby girl.
Bowe actually reminds me of my dad, because of how he is with Elise. He’s not a step-dad, he is her dad!
Just like in all of the other Lani books, the quotes at the start of each chapter are great.
“I don’t have a step daughter. I have a daughter that was born before I met her.”
~Bowe to Angie
“Life is so much more enjoyable since I decided to stop giving a fuck.”
~Angie’s secret thoughts
“I’m not a helicopter mom, a crunchy mom, or a soccer mom. I’m just a regular mom trying not to raise assholes.”
