Review: I Can't Even by Lani Lynn Vale (Carter Brothers #2)


Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Give Me Books Promotions.

I don't want to jinx myself, but two books in and Lani Lynn Vale's Carter Brothers series is exceeding my expectations. I Can't Even is the second novel in the series, and it features Quaid Carter, part of the triplets who are the oldest among the siblings and a sergeant in the Dallas Police Department who was in charge of patrol. He's paired with Ellodie Solaire, a nurse who has been in Dallas since she went to college nine years prior and is currently studying to get her nurse anesthetist license. She wouldn't mind having a boyfriend as well, but that's easier said than done, especially when there are far more frogs than there are princes. And Quaid Carter? Well, he's no prince... he's all hot cop. And Ellodie? Well, as much of a walking, breathing calamity she may be, Quaid knows she's the one for him. The problem? Someone nefarious has set their sights on Ellodie as well.

Could these Carters be any more endearing or entertaining?! With this being only the second book, I confess that I'm still getting the brothers confused, but Quincy and Quaid have obviously left quite an impression with their respective books being released. Quaid and Ellodie were a fun couple to get to know. He was uber protective of her, and that was even more understandable given the fact that there was a stalker slash serial killer out there who considered her the one who got away...and not in a romantic, "aww!" kind of way. Lani Lynn Vale brings the romance and the suspense, and she doesn't skimp on either one. Oh, and let's not forget the heat, which Vale offers up to readers generously. She kept me on my toes with this book, especially with that darn twist, and she's certainly has me coming back for more because I cannot wait for book three. 4.5 go to I Can't Even.
