Title: Maybe Don't Wanna
Series: The Simple Man Series #2
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romance Suspense
Unlike the superhero his mother named him after, Parker is no good guy.
In fact, if there’s a picture in the dictionary under anti-hero, it’s his.
Parker’s spent his life trying to get back on the right side of the tracks, but each step he takes forward, he takes two more steps back.
To save one, he hurts others. To make this good, he turns that bad.
For appearances’ sake, he plays the part. He does what people expect him to do—mostly. And at the end of each day, he goes back to his lonely apartment and wishes he was a different person. One who could fix the things he’s broken.
Then Kayla Nash forces her way into his life, and the world as he knows it is irrevocably changed.
Everything he thinks he has right is wrong. And everything he thinks is wrong is oh, so right.
One thing leads to another, and suddenly he’s growing a conscience, and trying to prove to her that he’s as bad as everybody says he is.
Yet she won’t listen.
She’s convinced that she can save him.
Little does she know, Parker isn’t worth saving, and never will be.
I don't know how this woman does it but time and time again she draws you in and holds you hostage with the stories she weaves from a brilliant mind like hers. This story will touch you while making you cry with what both of these lost souls have been through. Peter Parker Penn has had a life where everyone he loved has died and he believes that its all his fault. With only one remaining member he tries his best to become a better man than what he was, but he stills feels lost. Kayla has dealt with death also and has been floating in life never seeming to feel as if she found her footing but one look or touch of Parker and she feels settled. These two are struggling until finally realizing that together they are stronger than anything. I love the glimpses of other characters from previous books and Janie & Kayla relationship is #friendgoals. Great book Lani once again keep em coming!!!
