It was the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring…nope. No. Nuh-uh. That’s a lie.
The moment that Caro wakes up, she knows that she’s not alone.
One thump-thump from the living room and she quickly moves into action.
One 9-1-1 call later, and she’s ready to defend herself.
Only, she gets more than she bargains for when she steps out

Five stars completely based on feels

I've read and loved every book from this series (including this one) and I can't believe it's done. Being here, at the end, is giving me such a bittersweet feeling. I have now finally really met Saint and Carolina in their very own story and while I couldn't put this book down, I didn't want to finish it either.

Unsurprisingly, I loved both Saint and Carolina. From their awkward and suspenseful meet-cute to their forced quarantine to all the things that made up

I loved unwrapping the mystery behind Saint. He always kept things close to the vest as he cameoed in other couple’s books but now it makes total sense. He definitely had his reasons. Caro was a great heroine and together they definitely had the chemistry that I always look forward to with LLV books.

The plot included themes that are very relevant to our current times. Yes, it still has that signature OTT drama we’ve come to expect. However, it still used the elements well. I love that she’s not

I'm at the, I can't believe it's finished stage with a whole heap of oh yeah that was the perfect way to sum up 2020. Because it really did have everything that defines this year in it, in a way that only Lani Lynn Vale could do.

Add in the Christmas theme with a hero named Saint and it really was a great way to wrap up one of the highlights of the year. Every month this series has been something to look forward to. Each and every hero has just gotten better and better.

And Carolina was a pretty a

Depends on Who's Asking is the final book in the SWAT generation 2.0 series and I am sad to see it end; however, this book is a fantastic swan song!

Saint Nicholson has a secret he has kept from everyone: he is the son of a former US President. He dislikes his family and the life he led. He kept everyone in the dark about his past for that reason. I loved that he has sort of a nerdy side. It is impossible not to love Saint. He is caring, compassionate, and has adopted a litter of cats that

I enjoyed Depends On Who's Asking very much. Caro and Saint were fun together.
Only thing I would replaced with something else was the son of president bit (since the same could be done with son of billionaire, for example). It felt too far-fetched for me, especially with that drama twist toward the end.

Awwww, what a PERFECT ending! Talk about the perfect wrap up for the SWAT Generation 2.0! It is indeed always the quiet ones *wink, wink*… All the holiday spirit, in Caro and Saint’s deliciously naughty and NICE love story! Finish with a BANG indeed!!! ;)

Yep, every single word had me completely and utterly engaged in these two’s romance, and dare I say, adventure?! Lani Lynn Vale brought once again her masterful formula of romantic suspense, with the most diverse, and d

Lani just gets it. She just never fails to give me everything I need in a book and then some.

I have been anticipating Caro and Saints book wondering from the blurb and the sneak peak how on earth it was going to go. Man I just did not expect what happened, to happen. I was shook and excited when their journey started to unfold and things were revealed.

Saint from a very young age has been a loner. Surrounded by many and yet had no one for him in his corner. He missed out on the basic needs of a

One of the best from the series. Liked both characters and the fact that while Caro gave him a chance she also flat out told him that if he took too long she would stop waiting and move on. Her family was great and none of their action left a bad taste in your mouth like Sierra's did..... ...more

5 Stars!

The SWAT Generation 2.0 series by Lani Lynn Vale is back with a brand new standalone and y'all, this MIGHT just be my favorite one from this series to date.

Lani sure does knows how to make you swoon so very hard over those alpha males and her heroines? All the heart eyes. And these two? Caro and Saint were everything in the very best ways and gave me all the feels, right from the very start of their journey.

Gosh I sure do love Lani's words and I'm so glad I took that leap and chance to r

Sad that this book seemed promising when I first got a tidbit of it in a Christmas themed anthology and than disappointed when I got the full sample.

I can’t with a grown woman calling her father daddy. I also don’t find it realistic that the guy isn’t recognized given his full name even though his father was the president a few years back. And he is a grownup too, but somehow still let his parents dictate his every move. That’s not sexy at all.

I also didn’t like the writing. Why were we given

Having read this series from the start I've been waiting for Saint's story to take center stage and in a journey full of heart and soul I found myself thoroughly entertained. Though certain elements of the story felt familiar I still enjoyed watching Saint and Caro grow closer together. Knowing this was the last book in this series was a sad realization that left me sentimental as I turned the final page of this fun and festive story, but I'm ready for more from this reliably entertaining author ...more

OMG WOW what a perfect way to end a series loved everything about this book it just got me emotionally invested like all Lani Lynn Vale stories . What I love most about the authors is that she always brings back beloved characters from past books and just makes you want more . The characters were perfect for one another they just complimented each other brilliantly . Saint was such a beautiful surprise he's very unique and his past just about broke me . Carolina was the exact opposite of the her ...more

A little weird that the blurb happens muchhhh later in the book and wasn't the start of it like I was expecting. But otherwise I enjoyed this low-angst book! Liked the MCs together.

Saint Nicholson (yes that's his real name) and Carolina have been circling around each other since their meeting. But they've never allowed themselves to make a move. Then they have to quarantine together thanks to one of her "friends" being a heinous wench, and suddenly that attraction will obviously have to be consummated. But what will happen after quarantine is over? Will they go their separate ways or will Saint be willing to see where their

I’m so sad this series is ending, but it’s a great way to go out AND I have all confidence that we’re going to be seeing all these couples in future series which is one of the many reasons that I love LLV’s books!!

Saint and Caro met officially about a year ago; although they’ve known of each other for a little longer than that. Saint is “new” the SWAT kids group so he doesn’t have a real history with them and there’s a really good reason for that too! But

I'm a bit sad that this series is coming to an end. I've read and adored every book in it. I do love that Saint was last since he is named Saint Nicholas. Talk about wanting to kill your parents for their name choice! That being said this book could not have been better.

From the moment they met in an unusual way to the way they were forced to quarantine together. I laughed for a good five minutes over the reason they were in quarantine and if Lani Lynn Vale planned this prior to this year she w

Good ending to the SWAT 2.0 Generation series.

Caro & Saint’s book was rich with laughs, steam, who-dun-it? action & addicting banter, courtesy of your favorite SWAT characters & their families.

Caro… I really liked this girl. She was spicy, a go-getter & fun. I actually wished we would’ve gotten more of her doing her job because I think it absolutely kicks a** that she’s the youngest judge in Texas (and a female one at that)!

Saint… I felt for this guy. He reminded me so much of Michael

So sad this is the final book in this series! I have really loved how much thought Lani has put into this series and the consistency of giving us a great quality read each month throughout this crazy year! This book focuses on Carolina and Saint and how they get their HEA together. Saint is the son of a previous president and has hated his past and involvement in that his whole life. When he got old enough, he finally got out from under his parents and never looked back and keeps a low profile w ...more

I have been loving the journey Lani Lynn Vale has taken us on throughout this series. Depends On Who’s Asking is Book 12 of the KPD SWAT Generation 2.0 series and is a Christmas romance with a twist.

Saint Nicholson is a multi faceted and complicated man. He’s a former military man turned SWAT team member and he’s also the son of an ex president. Complicated much?

Caro or Carolina is a judge. She’s also a smidge crazy - in a good way and has been secretly stalking Saint for over a year - no worrie

Good ole Saint Nick.

I enjoyed this book and I think it was a good book to finish this series on.

Saint and Carolina end up being in quarantine together because of an Ebola scare.

Saint and Carolina kind of knew each other but just barley before the quarantine, but this gave them time to grow and learn about each other and realize they have a connection.

But Saint is leaving out a HUGE portion of his life. Like a HUGE portion.

Saint's past life will come back to threaten in and in the process

I am really, very sad to see the series end but what a way to go!! Saint and Carolina have been dancing around each other for months while everyone else around them is pairing up. Then they are thrown together under wild and frankly bizarre circumstances and sparks fly. But Saint has been keeping a big secret from Caro and everyone else about his upbringing. He learned from an early age that everyone has an agenda, secrets and only looking out for themselves so that shaped his lonely childhood. ...more

What a great ending to the Calendar series LLV created. I so far haven’t read number 11 but I don’t think you need to know it for this story.

It is typically boy meets girl both attracted to each other and once it’s out,they are both all in. In this case Saint is the last of the gen two crew to get his girl. The events of the synopsis don’t occur to almost the end I kept reading wondering what was happening. I thought it was their meet cute but it wasn’t.

It's the end of the KPD Swat Gen 2 calendar series with December, none other than Saint Nicholson, who has been the biggest mystery of all the swat team members. This book was great because given the things going on in the world today. Saint and Caroline get exposed to Ebola and end up quarantined together in a hotel room in the days leading up to Christmas. Loved this series, it has been so much fun with some great characters. ...more

Depends On Who's Asking follows Saint and Caro on their hilarious journey to find love.

When a completely bizzare situation throws them together, feelings happen fast. Despite being very real feelings, when they go back to the real world they are left to figure out if those real feelings where real in the moment or real for ever.

I really liked how Caro sort of let Saint do his thing - she let him figure it out on his own and come around in his own time, but loved him all the same through it.

Depends on Who’s Asking is the last book in LLV’s SWAT Generation 2.0 series and I’m so sad to see the end of this amazing series!

I do have to say that she saved the best for last though. Saint Nicholson (no, really that’s his name) is a member of KPD SWAT but always felt a bit like an outsider as he didn’t come from the same pack as the others. However, with this experience in the military he is definitely not lacking.

His history is one that he keeps on the down low. He always feels like he ge

This was such a bittersweet end to a favourite series. I loved Saint and Carolina. This is an opposites attract, forced proximity holiday romance that I could not put down.
