Foster made a promise in his hospital bed when his leg was taken from him that he’d get back to one hundred percent. Leg or no leg, he’d get back on the SWAT team if it killed him.
And he does get back. But he has a problem.
He can’t let go of the past.
The anger burns deep, making his emotions volatile at the best of times.
Then he meets Blake with her haughty attitude and in

Omg!! Foster & Blake!!! What a couple!!! Amazing book. Funny and emotional!!
This is a book about imperfect people and how someone can overcome whatever life throws his way. Foster is the perfect example of that. He lost his leg. Now he must return to his work as a police officer with a missing limb. But he makes it work. He is brave, he is good at his job but he keeps people at a distance.
Blake enters his life like a tornado and changes everything. She awakens feelings in Foster. He wants h

5 stars -- meaning that going back and picking up every single one of these books is a MUST!

I’m going to be all over the place with this review because one I’m ticked at myself. Little story; I have had these books on my radar for weeks and just hadn’t swung over to click them up. A few days ago, an ARC of Charlie Foxtrot showed up on my kindle I thought “NICE .. now I will get to see what these guys are all about.” I finished the current ARC I was reading and then

I really want to know how she does it, how she can produce one amazing book after another!!!!!

What an amazing book.

I loved foster, he wasn't what I expected at all. He was your typical bossy alpha that lani writes so well, but he was different, I know they have all experienced something but nothing compared to the hurdles he had to overcome, and other than the fact he was less sociable and more moody, to me personally he didn't dwell on it or feel sorry for himself, he also wasn't ashamed or hid

Charlie Foxtrot is book 5 in the Code 11-KPD SWAT series and is Foster Spurlock's story. We know from Execution Style that Foster loses part of his leg while while saving Mercy & Miller. Foster is former military and currently KPD SWAT and this is who he is. He does everything in his power to return to SWAT after his accident, but he is no longer the Foster that he was prior to the accident.

Blake is a woman scorned. Her ex-husband, David, is a cop with the Kilgore Police Department. She has
Foster has been bitter since he lost his leg, he doesn't blame anyone than the crazy woman who made him lose it. However, he is tired of being coddled and treated like he is made of glass. The only woman who treats him as a person is Blake who is busy chewing him out. Foster is intrigued and when Blake finds her house broken into, Foster is there to help her out. The attraction is undeniable and when it turns to something more, Foster will do everything to protect the woman who has stole his hea ...more

These Spurlock men have been absolutely divine!!
Foster was one of my fave's
He didn't let the cards he was dealt hold him down.. No W'oh is me from Foster!!
He got back into the game and came back better and stronger!!
A teeny bit jaded but nothing that deterred Blake..

Blake was what Foster needed in his life she was spunky, motivated, optimistic
and had tons of Love.. She didn't let her previous marriage affect her in anyway and had a great rock to

I love the KPD-Swat series and have really liked every single one. Unfortunately for me Charlie Foxtrot just didn't hit the standard of the other books. I was really expecting to see more from Foster's recovery side of things, but it was good to see him as a strong person for Blake to lean on during the hell she has to go through.

There are some definite sad parts during the book which i did well up at, as well at the humor you know you will experience through the Spurlock brothers.

I'm pretty sure this was the best book in the series. I loved Blake and Foster together and I loved them as individuals even more.
It was very emotional. I had not expected that because Foster and his brothers were basically kids trapped in grown-up's bodies, which guaranteed hilarious banter and awesome chemistry among all characters, so the Shank's story kind of caught me unprepared. There were no paper issues on hand...

Blake Rhodes is 25 years old and newly divorced from her cheating, controlling high school sweetheart and ex-husband, David. She is moving on from her former life as a stay at home wife to a Kilgore police officer, who, as it turned out, had another wife in his life, a ‘beat wife’ of more than two and a half years. Thanks to her uncle, the Chief of the Kilgore Police Department, Blake has job as the KPD’s newest police dispatcher.

Lani Lynn Vale creates such kickass heroes and heroines - characters willing to fight like hell through anything that comes their way because that’s how they’re made…that’s who they are at their core, which is a good thing because Vale sure provides her characters with a shitstorm of chaos and drama, forcing them to keep themselves in check and get things done in order to remain safe and protect those they love as well.

Another aspect of Vale’s Code 11-KPD Swat series is the camaraderie between t

I absolutely, without a doubt loved this book. Charlie Foxtrot is book 5 of the Code 11- KPD SWAT series, with two more books in the works. Unfortunately I have not read the four previous book, but if they are anything like Charlie Foxtrot, I have to go get them. Charlie Foxtrot can be read as a stand alone book. To tell you the truth, I could not tell by reading it that this was part of a series. No cliffhangers, and no wondering what you missed.

This is the 2nd book in this series I have read. You can read these out of order so feel free to start with this one! I wasn't as crazy about Execution Style so I was less than excited to read this book. I'm glad I gave it a shot though!! Blake is a likable character-you feel her hurt and it doesn't come off as overly whiny or 'oh poor me'. And Foster is great too! He is dealing with the trauma of his war wounds and trying to get his life back. Its all very believable. The book moves at a quick ...more

This year I've read every one of Lani Lynn Vale's books - and let me just say - that I am TOTALLY hooked on her writing style. I'm even about ready to start doing some re-reads of her books.

Her stories have yet to disappoint me, because they always have everything I love the most in my reading. This includes a hot, sexy alpha man - a strong heroine, with a great personality - humor - some smoking sex scenes - a story that holds my interest the entire book - great friends and families - and of co

Uma coisa não consegui entender... se o pai da heroína era um badass, como ele não protegeu ela das atitudes horríveis do ex-marido dela? Ele ferrou a heroína totalmente e a família ficou quieta! E o tio dela também ficou na moita!!!
Mas como adoro a série, gostei muito da leitura e recomendo!
One thing I couldn't figure out ... If the father of the heroine was a badass, how he didn't protect her from her ex-husband? He screwed the heroine and the family kept quiet! And her uncle also

I laughed at the star to of this one, with how Fulton and Blake met, yelling about Grandpa and his knife. It made what Grandpa did later in the book not all that unexpected.

I hated that at the start of this one Fulton was in a dark place, still pissed off about his leg, which frankly he had a right to be. His interest in Blake was just the thing to pull him back to life.

Trouble seemed to follow Blake, so it was a good thing she was firmly entrenched in the law enforcement world through her fath

LOVE Foster & Blake!! I've adored Foster throughout the series, and was worried about him after his sacrifice to save someone. But then he met Blake, and her spark was JUST the thing to pull him back to himself. She didn't even know she was doing it - they're just a perfect match. I enjoyed their insta-love - and good grief are they a steamy couple, as well! Whew!

Though I call this an insta-love story, that doesn't mean it's an easy one. There's a lot going on throughout the story & the

I am going to be straight up honest here my fellow readers, normally when this author has a release coming up I can’t wait to get my grubby little hands on an ARC and I read it immediately. This time I was skeptical. Let me tell you why. It is no secret that I disliked the previous book so much that I posted my review after the tour, I hoped that it was a onetime glitch that I hated a book by this author, an author who I have come to love since b

What courage and determination!

Foster Spurlock lost his leg doing what he does best, taking care of other people. The day he lost his leg he lost a lot more than that. The fun loving and joking part of him left and was replaced by a gruff and hard man. He had a deep burning anger within him now, something that had taken over within him. But he had determination that he would be one hundred percent and return to the KPD SWAT team.
