Michael was that guy.

The one that everyone was cautious of. Maybe it was the tattoos. Maybe it was the way he gave off a ‘don’t screw with me’ vibe. Maybe it was because he just told them to leave him the hell alone.

Regardless, people gave him his space.

He was screwed up, and everyone knew it.

He got tattoos because he liked the pain. He was standoffish. He didn’t h

The only think you need to know is...this book rocks, Michael and Nikki were awesome...but I did write a full review about how awesome this book and series are below...

I absolutely adore this series and author. I literally love every book she has written.

Michael and Nikki's book is probably the one book everybody has been anticipating. I know I was. From the very beginning Michael has this mysterious vibe going on about his tattoos and j

Okay friends yes we know this is the last KPD Swat book .. BUT … we are getting two new series! YES! They are the Kilgore Fire Department (giggles like an idiot) and a spinoff series of all the Free Kids. WHAT ?!?!?!?! -- Wait there is more --- you will see our boys (whatever with their wives .. Im kidding … ) in these books.

Lets chat about the cover shall we? Lani is brilliant in her cover choice. Myself, I would click the book just to have that on my screen

For me, I wanted to love this book. One, because it's Michael. But two, because it's LLV. Unfortunately I can't say I loved it, I liked it, just not love. To me, there were too many loose ends, too many WTF moments, or just random that didn't make sense.

I'm going to try to relay my response to this book without spoilers. Looking at that now, seems like it might be hard to do.

Okay, my issues. The ex. The cheating. No one says anything. The family never realiz

Coupe de Grace is the seventh and final installment in Lani Lynn Vale’s fantastic Code 11-KPD SWAT series and is Michael and Nikki’s story. One of the things I loved most about this series was the way Vale was able to surprise me in each book with an imperfect hero – each one of them had some characteristic, flaw, or issue that they hid, dealt with or had to live with. Some of these things I never saw coming, and of the ones whose situation I did see coming, the surprise was in the way that char ...more

Lani Lynn is definetly right up there in my fav author pile.

Finally we get to read Michaels and Nikkis book! Iv been waiting on this since Nico&Georgias book!!!!

Poor Michael, he's doing everything wrong for the right reasons. He genually believes he's doing the right thing by not being with Nikki because of things he cannot help. It hurt my heart hearing him think he wasn't good enough for her and he's never be able to give her what she needs. Michael was definetly beautifully broken. He was so
FINALLY, Michael & Nikki got to tell their story. I truly enjoyed the humor infused throughout the story (those chapter headings are AWESOME), the touching on delicate subject matter, getting to catch up with characters from previous books & I absolutely LOVED Nikki. But, at the same time... I have to admit that I was a little disappointed with this one. I wanted more. More from Michael, more of the strong connection that I know they had with one another, more passion... It was definitely a good ...more

So this came at the perfect time, you know, when you just finished a read that was...... not good. So let's just say this baby popped up on my kindle and I waited, I promised myself I would finish this book before I started, what to me, is a book by an author that is just AMAZING. Yeah, that didn't work, I said, oooo just 20 min with my coffee this 2 1/2 hours later, I was done....oops!

Great idea poor execution

I really wanted to like this book. And I did - for the first 20 pages or so... Then it all went downhill. Here are a few issues I had with the book.
- I HATE when authors push an agenda with a book. The hero studied to be a doctor but decided to give it up because he saw a woman getting an abortion- and she just killed her unborn child for no reason... Hmm- judgmental much??!! I guess saving other people's love lives just could not compete... So when I am reading a romanc

Another great well finale to this series..
Loved it!
Michael knows he made a mistake when he broke up with Nikki, he knew she wanted kids and he didn't. However Michael had his reasons and now two years later he is willing to look at other ways to have a child if it means he can have Nikki in his life. Once Nikki understands who Michael is and the side of him he is afraid of, she loves him more. When Michael is pulled into a case that could put Nikki in danger, he does what he has to keep her protected.

This is the final book in the Code-11 KPD SWAT series and it definitely did NOT disappoint! Michael has been the strong, silent man throughout the rest of the books. We'd catch glimpses of him but he was such a mystery. I knew this book would be amazing!!

Nikki is on the IV team at the local hospital and is also Nico's younger sister. She has been in love with Michael for as long as she's known him but that love wasn't reciprocated, or at least not that she knew of.

You know the saying "it's not you, it's me" when a couple breaks up? That was me with this book. I know a lot of folks love this book but I really struggled with it... A LOT.

What made me crazy:

1. Leakage. I'm sorry if I read that word once it was too much. The sheer volume mentioned in this story was WAY TOO MUCH. Yuck.
2. H - Michael - the glimpses we got of him in the other books in this series he seemed so promising. IMHO the author failed to fulfill the promise of Michael that we saw in earli

One of my favorite go to authors has done it again! Loved it. I love the way "the gang" is always part of the story. Nikki and Mikey, Mike are great together.

My only complaint, and it has nothing to do with the story or the writing - I didn't have any laugh out loud moments or snickers with this one. I've come to expect them and was a little surprised that I didn't wake or stir hubby while having my Sunday morning read. Don't get me wrong it is still a great story. Given Michael's condition, may
I've waited for this book since the release of Double Tap(Code 11- KPD SWAT #2), however, felt a little disappointed after finish this book.

I was unsure what disappont me most. Maybe the sudden change of H's mind to date h again? He suddenly forgot the reason why he broke up with her? Or his issue? Or was it because the similar routine of comedian child-birth process? Or the lack of build-up of emotion or their relationship?

Guess I've expected too much.

Think this will be my last

Well I read this book in about 5 hours, it would have been 3 but I had a really hard time concentrating after the incorrect description of a medical procedure. But I normally love this author so I read on and only to be lambasted again by another of the authors political view points that didn't even have any relevance to the story. I read to be entertained if I was looking for political literature I would buy any book by Bill O'Reilly or Rachel Maddow. So even though I

I absolutely love these books.. I love the thrill,romance suspense it has everything I look for in a book. Michaels story was really amazing for me.

So I'm finding with this series that the author is a bit inconsistent when it comes to the enjoyment of each story. I seem to like every.other book that comes out. The chemistry btwn Michael and Nikki was non existent. His reveal was anticlimactic and overall the story was just a big snore fest. 2.5 *HUGELY disappointed* stars ...more

Eh. This one was ok. It felt rushed. Character dynamics and the story/plotlines were underdeveloped. So many opportunities unexplored. We never got to see how and why Micheal and Nikki fell in love and I was surprised his issues and the dark moods we were continuously told about didn't play a larger part. ...more

This was an okay book, but not great. I really had high hopes for this one since we knew that Michael & Nikki had something going on at one point based on previous books, but were now apart. We get some of the backstory: basically, Nikki dumps Michael after he tells her he doesn't want kids, but fails to get his reason as to why that is. The lack of communication seems to be a common thing with this couple.

I like that the author didn't make Michael a perfect Hero. He had his flaws (bi-polar and

This one was a solid read, as always LLV tends to write the best epilogues. Though I did see age discrepancy in the book, AGAIN, I love LLV but the devil is in the details and she doesn’t really focus on the small things like age... in this one Micheal says his sister Hannah had a baby at 18 and her kid is 2 which would make her 21 at the most, and he’s supposed to be younger than her by about a year which would make him 20. BUT in the beginning of the book they say he’s 35 so I have n

The one in the series I most looked forward to finally reading, yet not quite what I expected. In the end, Michael wasn’t all he was built up to be imo.

I am going to admit, I have been in a book funk and it hasn’t been pretty. I have been dnf books more and more or just getting super annoyed with characters, books, or just over the top plotlines. Coup De Grace almost fell into the dnf category pretty quickly but since I love this author so much I continued with the hope that things would improve. Obviously it did because I am writing my review for the one team member I have been waiting to read a
