Whiskey Neat by Lani Lynn Vale

This is the first of Lani’s books that I have been able to find exception with, the first of her guys that actually made me work to like him.

Griffin, oh man, what did you do to me, I thought I was going to fall head first in love but Nup…just didn’t happen, you were hard work man.

I will admit that I softened to him eventually as the book progressed and I suppose that isn’t necessarily a bad thing, he was a typical alpha male, he pulled no punches and Lani didn’t allow his personality to be curtailed as she brought him to life, so I suppose I shouldn’t have been surprised, that my focus was solely on him, he refused to be side lined in any way, shape or form.

Griffin was one seriously, serious man he has an agenda that was so focused, so centred that understanding his drive was not a problem, he laid it all out, he was on his own quest for vengeance and that quest was one that he would not deviate from…it was what make him put one foot in front of the other each morning.

So adding Lenore into that madness might not have been the smartest of moves for the big guy but from the minute he wandered into her adult store, he knew where she would fit into his life and while in some respects I am all for that “mine” mentality, I did think that he was more than a little presumptuous and that wasn’t a particular trait that I liked.

Griffin is a Ranger and like all of Lani’s alpha’s he has a story that you really need to hear but when I read Lenore’s back story I was practically inhaling tissues!

But I loved the fight she had, the determination to stand on her own two feet and to forge a way ahead for her, despite the resistance that she seemed to be fielding form all aspects of the community, her adult store didn’t seem to go down well with the neighbours!

For me Lenore was the star of the show, she was so sharp, Griffin had his work cut out for him, but I think at times she gave in to him a little too easily.

Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed the story and I can’t wait to get the next in the series, but Griffin was a little more demanding of me than I had anticipated and that knocked me off kilter!
