BLOG TOUR REVIEW - Execution Style (Code-11 KPD SWAT #4) by Lani Lynn Vale

Title: Execution Style
Series: Code-11 KPD SWAT #4
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: August 5, 2015

Miller Spurlock might seem like a laid back man on the outside, but piss him off, or violate his trust, and he’ll show you the meaning of pain.

He was a Navy SEAL. He could kill a man a hundred different ways and not break a sweat.

He’s also a police officer and member of the SWAT team, which means he has the knowledge and skills to get away with it.

Rage boils in his gut when he witnesses what happens to the beautiful Mercy Shepherd during a SWAT op from hell that even his worst nightmare couldn’t conjure up. And it surprises the hell out of him when she wants him, and him only, to comfort her in the aftermath.

Miller becomes the one shining beacon of light at the bottom of Mercy’s pit of despair.

The one man that could pull her through the rough days ahead and make her whole again.

And during her road back to herself, she realizes that she’s got the one thing she ever wanted in life…a hero to call her own.

Well, this book was entertaining, but not my favorite of the series. It started with a horrific and traumatic experience for Mercy, so it was understandable that she latched onto Miller immediately following the experience. What bothered me was her thought processes a few days later, and her proposition to Miller.

Even though I didn't agree with that her proposition and his response, I still enjoyed them as a couple, they definitely balance each other out. The supporting cast of characters are wide, varied and very much eclectic, with one character on the slip 'n slide of insanity.

There were a couple of subplots that left me a bit confused, as I don't know if one incident had occurred earlier in the series and was finally resolved in this book. If it was never mentioned prior to this installment, I would have preferred that it be given a slightly bigger role than the one page and subsequent 4-line paragraph follow-up that it received.

As I stated at the start of my review, this was entertaining but not my favorite. After reading the snippet of Charlie Foxtrot, I can't wait to read Foster's story, it looks like it's going to be a good one for sure.

I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
