#BookReview: Coup De Grace (Code-11 KPD SWAT Series) by Lani Lynn Vale





Michael was that guy.
The one that everyone was cautious of. Maybe it was the tattoos. Maybe it was the way he gave off a ‘don’t screw with me’ vibe. Maybe it was because he just told them to leave him the hell alone.
Regardless, people gave him his space.
He was screwed up, and everyone knew it.
He got tattoos because he liked the pain. He was standoffish. He didn’t have many friends outside of work. And the only thing he had going for him was that he was a good cop.
Everyone wondered about him, but no one asked.
The only one that didn’t treat him as if he was screwed up was Nikki Pena, a woman that he couldn’t have.
Nikki was that girl.
The one that everyone loved.
The one girl that he’d destroy if he let her have her way. What did she want?
But, he couldn’t give her him. She didn’t deserve what it would take to be with him.
So Michael would suffer in silence…or so he thought.
The woman who loved him had different ideas.




Finally! I swear she’s been teasing us with this book FOREVER .. I mean only since the second book in the Code 11- KPD SWAT series and this is the 7th book, that’s 5 BOOKS that I’ve been waiting to see how it plays out between these two! There’s some serious potential for a let down there with that kind of build up. Of course Lani NEVER lets us down and this book was AMAZING. I LOVED IT! I love Michael, but I have to say I seriously HATE his family, well except for his sister, she’s cool, the rest can go suck a pickle. Out of all of the SWAT boys he’s remained the most enigmatic over time. We kinda got glimpses into who he was but really didn’t know much about him, the suspense was kinda killing me! Nikki is amazing. She’s sweet, funny, lovable and totally the best fit possible for Michael. Of course none of Lani’s books would be complete without the drama, and a couple of scene that made me bawl, of course there were quite a few that made me laugh, and a few that made me wanna reach in and choke the ever living %^# out of a character *cough Joslin cough* a time or two as well. If you haven’t read any of Lani’s books before I highly recommend them. Not only are they all fantastic books, but you can see her growth as an author over time.
