Camryn and Flint had a tension going on in Hissy Fit that definitely caught my attention. I had a feeling they would be great together and once they got past their assumptions about one another, that was definitely what we got. They definitely had some hot 🔥 chemistry.

”I mean, with as much as we fought, it shouldn’t be this perfect. Except, it was.”

Camryn was both feisty and vulnerable. She was hilarious in her fits and arguments with Flint. Flint was sexy and a little gruff but he was carin

I love how picking up a book by Lani Lynn Vale is always a guaranteed good read! Camryn is crushing hard on Flint Stone and honestly, what's not to like? He's hot, he's a cop, he's great with kids, he's a generally nice guy... too bad he doesn't know how to be nice to her. And his girlfriend just happens to be Camryn's nemesis. But she can't get him off of her mind. If only he felt the same way too.

Camryn gets on Flint's nerves. She's gotten under his skin and he can't stop thinking about her. H

Ok I think my age is showing because this didn't really work for me. I have quotes to share that I'll hopefully add in at some point but basically he's liked her for a while but he never approached her that way because he knew one taste of her and that'd be IT! So like any decent romance hero he started dating(why???? ugh I don't get how this is romance worthy),really having sex with OW with a mouth like a Hoover vacuum(I'm so over this bs), which to him was her only redeeming qual

Hot Damn… There is nothing Gentlemanish about these men! Specially not with Officer Flint Stone, that’s for sure! LOL

Lord Have Mercy follows the winning formula of Ms. Vale’s addictive and fast paced writing. Nothing proves that addiction more than the fact that even if containing elements that you don’t care for, you can’t help but devour the book in one sitting. That’s just how talented Lani Lynn Vale is with her words.

That was the case here with Camry and Flint’s s

OMG Lord Have Mercy is legit the reason why Lani Lynn Vale's stories are an automatic oneclick for me. It was quirky and funny and full of the sass and spitfire I've come to expect from this author's stories. Flint and Camryn were so sexy and funny that I never wanted it to end. 

Flint Stone and Camryn Presley have an acrimonious relationship. Always arguing and at each other's throats, they had no idea that all it would take is one kiss for them to give in to their passion and then the whole wor

I usually love me some Lani Lynn...

This started out real nice. Two lovely MC's and some funny bantering and situations.

However it didn't sustain me. And I didn't feel them grow. They went from zero and both being apprehensive, to 100 and acting like a married couple. So it kinda felt rushed to me.

And overall, the OW drama seemed really pointless.

It was cute... But nothing to write home about for me.
Camryn Elvis Presley doesn't know what she did to have Officer Flint Stone hate her but she knows he does and even though she finds him incredibly attractive, against her better judgement, she is determined not to find out.

Flint wants Camryn, he wants her like he has never wanted anyone else. However she hates his dog who is an important part of his job as a K-9 Police Officer. When he finds out there is a story behind Camryn's reaction to his dog, everything changes and he is determined to mak

I'm pretty sure that Lani Lynn Vale is one of my new favorite authors. I mean, this book started off with a reference to the Final Destination movie series, something that I think about all the time from that movie! It's funny to read my updates on Goodreads as I was reading this, I keep going on and on about how much I love this author! So much that she does in her stories makes me laugh, and keeps me turning pages, staying up way later than I should. One fun thing is that each chapter has a li ...more

Janine - The World Was Hers for the Reading
Lord Have Mercy was book two in Lani Lynn Vale’s Southern Gentleman series but can be read as a standalone. I loved that this couple was the complete opposite from Ezra and Raleigh in book one. For as sweet as they were, that’s how sassy Flint and Camryn were.

Both Camryn and Flint harbored secret crushes on one another, but found themselves dating other people that really didn’t make either of them happy. They danced around and hid their feelings and attraction with spit and sass acting as thoug

Brilliant story. Funny, heartfelt and genuine. Great characters. Looking forward to the next book.

Camryn and Flint just couldn't get along. And maybe its something more and they are both just to blind to see it? Because Camryn definitely thinks that Flint is Hot and Flint definitely thinks that Camryn is sexy!
But then one day she knocks into him and things definitely takes a turn. He can't seem to stop thinking about the feisty Camryn and how maybe its time he stops acting like she's not what he wants.

The thing I like about this authors books are that the characters are all hilarious, feisty

Another great read…

This author knows how to convey emotion and Flint and Camryn have it to spare! Frenemies for sure but just scratching the surface let loose a host of feelings that couldn’t be denied. With a high school as the backdrop it almost felt like that time again as these very grown up people dealt with a boat load of stresses from a variety of sources… They argued, they grumbled and in between they grew closer and closer with besties providing a laugh or two (or many).

Lord Have Mercy takes the reader back to Gun Barrel Texas and Gun Barrel high school! I love stories about teachers and I love LLV, so grabbing this book was a no brainer. I also ADORED Hissy Fit (book 1).

Flint Stone (Yep, that is his real name) is a school resource officer and he cannot figure out what the heck is wrong with Camryn Elvis Presley (Yep, also her real name). She seems terrified of him and he has no idea why. Not that it matters-he has a girlfriend and Camryn is seeing another te

Lord Have Mercy! These sweet southern gentlemen have me swooning hard and falling hopelessly in love!
Y'all Flint Stone is H-O-T! A police officer and crossfit gym owner, he is incredibly loveable and I couldn't get enough of him. He is great at his job and works hard to keep both his gym and the school running smoothly. He just can't understand why Camryn, the annoying teacher who he can't seem to get off his mind, doesn't like him.
These two have chemistry that is off the charts. Even when the
Lord have mercy is book two in the southern gentleman series. I have been eager to read this book since I finished the first book in this series. I read this book in one sitting and was satisfied throughout. I was hooked from start to finish. I love Flint and Camryn. I really liked the enemies to lovers build up to them getting together. Even when they weren’t getting along the sexual tension between them was clear to see.

Lord Have Mercy is the second book in Lani Lynn Vale’s new series, The Southern Gentleman, and I am in love with this new world she’s creating and the new characters she’s introduced readers to so far. A steamy enemies-to-lovers romance, rich with Vale’s laugh-out-loud sense of humor mingles perfectly with an interesting suspenseful arc in this story.

Camryn Elvis Presley was a bit of a departure from Vale’s typical heroine, and I adored her. A high school teacher, she was strong and d
When it comes to the writings of Ms. Vale there’s a few things I can always count on....witty banter, a larger than life main couple, sizzling chemistry, and pulse-pounding suspense. Though the style is becoming a bit predictable it still pulls me in every time as it’s a winning formula that makes for an exhilarating romance that has me counting down the days until I get my hands on another new work from this captivating storyteller.

Readers met Camryn Presley and Flint Stone, the hero and heroine in Lord Have Mercy, in Hissy Fit, the first book in Lani Lynn Vale’s latest series, The Southern Gentleman, and we could tell after one interaction that these two were either going to bite each other’s heads off or tear one another’s clothes off in order to work through the frustration and anger that consumes them when it comes to the other one. And while there’s still some animosity at the beginning of their own story, as it progr ...more

Lani Lynn Vale has delivered yet another amazingly witty romantic comedy with her latest release Lord Have Mercy.

The story of Flint Stone (just his named had me giggling) and Camryn Presley is sweet but will have you laughing out loud at multiple points throughout it.

Ms Vale knows how to write feisty pocket sized heroines and she does not disappoint in Camryn’s character. Camryn is five foot one and is a chemistry teacher at the local high school. She has had a crush on the school resource off

At first I was going to rate this book between 3,5 and 4 stars, but I had a hard time deciding. After talking with a friend who also had the ARC, I decided to take it down to 3 stars! I really enjoyed this story and was laughing out loud, but there were a few things that made less sense to me.

Lord Have Mercy follows our characters Flint and Camryn. Flint is definitely a dream, a cop with a K-9 dog. He loves working with the kids at the high school he works at and he's really good with them. Flin

5 Star Review Lord Have Mercy (The Southern Gentlemen #2) by Lani Lynn Vale

Well this may well be my favourite from Lani Lynn Vale to date. I fell hard and fast for Flint Stone (just his name made me swoon), he ticked so many boxes that it was hard not too.

A police officer with the K-9 unit, he and his partner Dooley also work at Gun Barrel High as the school resource office whilst trying to build a gym from the ground up. He is popular with everyone except chemistry teacher Camryn Elvis Presley

Lord Have Mercy is the second installment in the Southern Gentlemen series by Lani Lynn Vale and a continued reason as to why she is an automatic oneclick author for me. We first meet Camryn and Flint in book one, Hissy Fit. Camryn Elvis Presley is a teacher at Gun Barrel High School and the quirky and feisty best friend to Raleigh. Flint Stone is Gun Barrel High’s school resource officer and local crossfit gym owner.

Flint Stone and Camryn Elvis Presley have a hate relationship in the beginning. She loathes him and he acts like she is scum on the bottom of his shoe. They say there is a fine line between love and hate and these two seem to be intent on proving that. Neither one is willing to give in to their attraction in the beginning. They both fight it and are slow to grasp what everyone else knows - they have chemistry in spades. When Flint finally gives in, Camryn is left confused for a moment. Life is f ...more

Lani Lynn Vale is the one author where I've started a few of her books out of order in a series like Lord Have Mercy. I had no idea this was book 2 in the Southern Gentleman series, but thankfully it's a standalone, so you don't have to read the previous book.

Flint and Camryn are an absolute riot! I seriously could not get enough of these two, not only their banter, but their inner turmoil about one another. I can't say that I quite understood the loathing they had for each other in the beginnin

Better than the first book in the series! It made me laugh, roll my eyes, spit fire & grin from ear-to-ear, even if it was a tad predictable.

My absolute favorite thing about the book was Camryn. She was funny, down-to-earth & definitely someone who I'd want to drink margaritas with! The Cross-Fit gas & Doritos licking scenes had me in stitches.

My least favorite thing, hands down, was Nivea. Ugh. Talk about a mondo pain-in-the-a** who should've got gone WAY sooner.

I was so so on this one. My biggest problem was how Flint seemed to move from one woman to Camryn very fast and how he kept bad mouthing the other woman, saying she was good at BJ's and convenient. Heck he even told Camryn this and how he liked Camryn before he asked out the other woman, but didn't want to ask Camryn because he knew she would be important. It made it really hard for me to like Flint and hard for me to like Camryn as she just accepted this. The one good thing Flint had going for ...more

I love Lani Lynn Vale, the girl could write the phone book and I would probably love every last word. This book was so good. An enemies to lovers story that had a great plot. I loved the fact that it wasn't the heroine that suffered the tragedy. I loved how real Camryn and Flint were. I loved that she showed us the normal every day stuff that happens with people. Not just the fluff stuff that we see in a lot of books. The headers for the chapters always make the book even better. I love that she ...more
