Lani Lynn Vale is the one author where I’ve started a few of her books out of order in a series like Lord Have Mercy. I had no idea this was book 2 in the Southern Gentleman series, but thankfully it’s a standalone, so you don’t have to read the previous book.
Flint and Camryn are an absolute riot! I seriously could not get enough of these two, not only their banter, but their inner turmoil about one another. I can’t say that I quite understood the loathing they had for each other in the beginning, when it was clearly attraction. But it just made their story much more memorable
Camryn’s thoughts on Crossfit were exactly mine. My brother owns a Crossfit gym and EVERRRYYYYYYYYY time I visit him, all his members love asking me when I’m going to join in. Answer: not anytime soon. I’m a huge supporter of it and absolutely love the community, but my goodness, it’s in a league of it’s own. ANYWAYS, back to the review, gym time between Cam and Flint were some of my favorite moments. It’s so damn comical!
Little by little, walls are coming down and Cam is finally seeing Flint differently. Flint definitely made a poor decision by shacking it up with a woman that’s bit on the clingy and crazy side just to push his feelings for Cam aside. Obviously it didn’t work and he got a whole lot more than he bargained for. She brings on the drama and I was not having any of it!
I loved every scene with these two especially how patient he was with helping Camryn work through her fear of dogs. Plus, I liked that she was willing to work through it, that was amazingly strong of her.
Lord Have Mercy is a romantic comedy , friends-to-lovers that I truly enjoyed! The laughs just kept on coming and then I was getting all doe-eyed watching these two fall in love so effortlessly. They had to jump over a lot of hurdles while trying to be together, but it was definitely worth in the end.
Bravo, LLV for such a funny, sweet and endearing read! I’ll be going back to book 1 of this series.
