Lachlan Downy was a lover, not a fighter.

Okay, he wouldn't lie, he was a fighter, too. But nobody had to know that. Especially not Memphis Tennessee Conner and her stuffy attitude when it came to cops and ‘men like him.’

Memphis knew cops. Her daddy was a cop. He was also the president of a motorcycle club. Needless to say, he’s about as alpha as they come, and she’s ti

Jul 18, 2020 rated it it was amazing
I've enjoyed all Mrs. Vale’s books for a few years now. I anticipate each book and even pre-purchase them. From her original Freebirds series, to the Dixie Warden series and now this new Code 11.KDP Swat series. I think it's brilliant how each series ties to the next, allowing previous characters to make random appearances in current books. My favorite element of her writing, by far, is the humor she brings to the stories. Her books are littered with mouthy heroines, unfiltered children and situ ...more

From the start of this one I felt like I had so many moments of What??? then Oh ok..whew! Lani did you decide to mess with our heads a bit on this one? I got mad. I laughed. I cried. I laughed some more. It was HOT. It was beautiful. It was pure Lani Lynn Vale's magic. Totally digged everything from the age difference.. to the surprises. Even the angsty moments were handled in just the right way. Another totally safe read with one sexy hot perfect hero. ...more
Memphis Conner knows all about cops and bikers, raised in a family with both she vowed she would never go there. When she meets her neighbor, Lachlan Downy, she thinks he is a player just like the rest. However, Lachlan is more a lover and he is a one woman type of man. That being said he would not say he was a novice at relationships and when he and Memphis begin seeing one another they both seem to have a gift for not communicating. Downy is tracking down missing dogs and a possible fighting r ...more

I am an unrepentant Lani Lynn Vale junkie. I make no apologies for this, and I'm starting this review off letting you know that right off the bat. If you're expecting a critical review of this book, with in depth examinations of plot lines and character development, move on to the next review. You won't find that here. This is more of a thank you to the author.

There is something about Lani's writing that just hits all the right notes with me. I have yet to read a book o

First off - can LLV have hotter covers? No, not unless they come with a scratch n' sniff.
Jeezus woman!

Second - it's offically official as of officially now (unless I made it official before), she's an auto buy for me. Hell, she's a "pre-order, I don't give a F*&k what it's about, I'm gonna buy it" buy for me.
I love this series. So much it makes me go back and read others in the series again when I'm done just so I can have more of these character...this writing...this world she wraps me up in.

3~3.5 Stars
I really have enjoyed this series, but in this installment I found that while I like both of the MC's, I really couldn't connect to the couple. It also felt like there were huge gaps in the story and the overprotective, over the top father was a little on the ridiculous side.
On a side note: Dayymn....where she finds theses guys for her covers, they are Fiine!!

3.5 Downy??? stars..

Full review here...

Memphis knew what it meant to be the sole focus of "Men like Him" she grew up surrounded by it and left it behind her. She did everything she could to be independent and relied on herself to get where she wanted to be. But being so young and stubborn as well as having a bunch of obstacles thrown at her...
lead her straight into Downy's arms.

Downy was just getting his feet wet at different duties with his SWAT team and with a few

With all the ups and downs, flips and dips that I experienced while reading Bang Switch by Lani Lynn Vale, the smile on my face never slipped (I just rhymed lol). Oddly, in moments where Memphis, Stone, or Downy would do something that would normally irritate me just expressed to me how important their communication to each other was (this won’t make sense to you until you read this story). Or, now that I think about it, their ac

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

How in the world have I never read any books by Lani Lynn Vale before this one? I feel like I've been missing out on something really important! Now that I've read this one, I want to read ALL of her books.

Downy and Memphis are perfect together! Their sexual chemistry is off the charts and the free-willed and fiesty Memphis is just want the over-confident alpha Downy needs in his life. She was leery to begin a relationship with a cop because of

The people of Kilgore SWAT are Downy's family. They are waiting on Luke before they are able to move out. Downy's mom and stepfather were not his favorite people. Memphis had to move to a different apartment because when she lost her job after the hostage situation she lost her apartment as well. Every night she has been woke up by her neighbor having sex. Peter her dog needed to go outside, so she took him while out there she saw a dog start after Peter and she got worried because Peter is a l ...more

Reviewed for Hooked on Books---5 stars!

I loved this book! I seriously cannot count how many times I was almost rolling in the floor laughing! I loved Downy and I loved his first name just as much! Memphis reminds me of me in a way; she's such a spitfire that you can't help but love her! There were parts in this book that I snorted on and others where I almost spit out my drink! You can't help but love a good SWAT book and this was definitely one of those! I haven't read the other two in this ser

I will completely confess to be a Lani Lynn Vale book junkie. I fell in love with her writing with her Dixie Warder Series, and that love has continued through the Swat series. Her books completely grab you from the very first page and take you on a wild ride until the end. Bang Switch is no exception to the wild rise. I adore Memphis and her kick behind attitude. I love Downey - from his pure Alpha attitude to his softer side while he is working as a SWAT negotiator (his first negotiation rippe ...more

Wow. That was, I think, one of the best LLv books I think I've read yet. To me, it seems like her writing is just getting better and better. You can definitely see the progress she's made since the first books she released.

I think she did a really great job with this book, characters, story line, and series. I love the scenario in which our two characters meet and their relationship begins. I mean, a wall. Huh. And I love the way she ties our new characters in

Holy hell Downy is just flat out delicious. He and Memphis are scorching hot together. She wasn't sure that she wanted to get involved with a cop with her daddy being one, but Downy is pretty persuasive. They first meet in dangerous circumstances, but later when they meet again don't recognize each other from that moment. I just loved Memphis as she was so sassy. I loved that her family was MC. Downy is one sizzling man who has a way with words for sure. Their story was fantastic and I can't wai ...more

Every time… Every time I finish one of Lani's books i'm left wishing I could forget that I just read it, that way I could read it again and not know what comes next…

Jonesing for the next release… Wish it was release day for Execution style tomorrow :)

You'll never regret picking up any of Lani's books :)

5 stars because this series and the Dixie Warden series are freaking amazing. I love every book in this series and the Dixie Warden series. They are all must reads. They combine the biker/MC romance with police/fire/emt alpha males. What more could a girl ask for. Can't wait for the next book.

I love when she mentions characters from her other series, it's so nice to see old faces again. Great story, fun characters! I love the part where the bed went through the wall! Another perfect read! ...more

Another good one

Each book and story gets better and better. Every book has a unique story line that hooks the reader from the very first chapter. The sneak peek at Miller's story looks just as good. But please Lani don't make us wait much longer for Michael s story!

Great read

Lain Lynn Vale rocks. I'm loving this series as much as every other one she's written. This one was especially good for me because the characters had great chemistry.
2.5☆ hard time connecting with the characters in this one. But excellent extreamly hots scenes!
My fav of the series so far! I love red heads!!!! and Downy was no disappointment!

I really enjoyed this book, so much better than the first two in the series. I honestly forgot about the whole age difference thing halfway through the book. So for me, it didn't play that big of a role as it initially appeared to be. Sure, Memphis wasn't the most mature heroine at times, but they both had terrible communication issues (as in not speaking for days at a time), so it wasn't completely one-sided. Of course, Downy didn't exactly have the most welcoming childhood and I can see why he ...more

The beginning of this book caused some heart palpitations, I was scared that Downey was the wallbanger which is a Kindle breaking fail to me. Nevertheless I persevered and thankfully it was not Downey. As is typical of this author the relationship developed quickly though Memphis was quite a bit younger than Downey. I still found some things a bit ridiculous including Memphis not knowing the reason for Downey's distance as well as him not explaining what happened. Her father and the birth c

I've Read Better

I've read almost all of the code 11 KPD SWAT books and each story was better than the last, except for this one. It took me a while to finish reading the story. I didn't feel the connection between Memphis and Downy. It felt forced. There was hardly any story, if there was one it was pushed to the back. The story seemed mores concentrated on the sex. They barely and I mean barely knew each already having sex. The other stories I've read by this author were great. There was suspen
