I've been waiting for this book for a long time. The need for it grew when I read Sinners Are Winners and got a glimpse of Malachi Stokes. I wanted more about this man and with If You Say So, Lani Lynn Vale delivered me one heck of a story. I knew she wouldn't let me down!!

The blurb is a little misleading and gave away the kicker right from the start. First we meet Malachi, just returned to Kilgore after being a POW for a year. He's scarred, inside and out, and has no memories before waking up i

This book was so hard to read. Not because it wasn't amazing, because it was a fantastic book. It was hard to read because of the emotion behind it. Frankie's pain. Gabe and Ember's pain. It all added up to make this one of the most emotional books I've read by this author. I just could not read it without copious amounts of tears. So be prepared, and have the tissues handy. You will definitely need them! You have been warned!

Frankie is absolutely devastated, and knows her life will never be the

Frankie and Luca had a once in a lifetime love before everything changed. Frankie adapted to a life without her love and her love had to find himself once again. The blurb doesn’t quite accurately describe what happens in the version I read but it was entertaining nonetheless.

The story leaves us with many more questions than answers, which really opens up the world to more interesting characters and storylines. I enjoyed the development and the pace of the story. The integrity of the LLV voice

If You Say So is the heartbreaking story of a man home from war with no memories and a fiancee left behind. Now, listen, there is NO WAY to do this review without a kind of spoiler so consider yourself warned.

Malachi was rescued from the hell he had been trapped in for 2 years. Except, he had no idea who he was. His things didn't feel like his things, his name didn't feel like his name. He was struggling with his physical scars and emotional ones. Then he finds himself attracted to his dea

You know when you read a book and you’re all 😭😳😱🤯😍😍🤣😳😭😍 and you really want to like yell at everyone to go read it IMMEDIATELY so you have some one to go through that emotional roller coaster with you because you can’t say a word about it until they’ve read it too and you feel like you’re going to explode with all the feelings ready to burst out of you? *takes a huuuuuge breathe after that ridiculously long run on sentence* THAT is what If You Say So is.

First things first... if you're going to read this book, I don't think you should read the blurb first. I feel like it almost ruined the book for me because I already knew who the book was about. (That sentence will make sense when you read the book.)

Soooo I'm not really sure how I feel.
I really enjoyed the book. The story... holy cow, I didn't want to put it down at all! I wanted to know what was going to happen next!

This is one of the best LLV books I’ve ever read! I wasn’t sure about it at first, as this isn’t a troupe I really enjoy. However I loved it! I would 100% recommend giving it a try!
Luca and Frankie were engaged when he left for his term as a Navy SEAL. Two years later Luca is MIA and when his best friend and look alike, Malachi comes home with no memory Frankie is torn. Frankie knows Luca would want her to help Malachi but her feelings are doing a number on her where he is concerned. What she doesn't know though is Malachi has his own questions about what is going on with himself that he needs to resolve as well.

I don't want to divulge to much because the story needs to t

If You Say So was a good read without any surprises. Everything important was hinted at right at the beginning and I was glad for that because the couple hadn't deserved any additional drama.
Only thing I wasn't happy about was the final murder, it felt like a cop-out to me. Like the author had started something she wasn't sure how to finish.
But the rest kept me glued to my kindle the whole morning.
Been waiting for this book since Katy said Luca was missing from her book. Loved this book! The emotion and anticipation? Felt deeply for Frankie, Gabe and Ember….

And the struggle Frankie underwent with Luca? That's torture for both of them. The HEA, they totally deserved it!

I don't think I'll ever loose that excitement of getting one of the OG kids stories. Im still not sure how we got this far?! HTF is Gabe and Ember's baby all grown up!!!. Nope. Not ready for it.

Frankie and Luca story ripped my stone cold heart apart. Seriously it's gets real fucking emotional in this story real quick and I WAS NOT READY FOR IT.

Holy plot holes!

I love Lani Lynn Vale. I own everything the woman has written and have everything she expects to release on preorder. That being said, the woman seriously either needs a technical advisor or a better editor. She does usually leave you with a question or two but for a reason. However, the plot line for this book has holes in it so huge they make the Grand Canyon look like a scratch. Anyone who watches NCIS or any other military related show knows that the military keeps DNA on fil

A new Lani Lynn Vale book for me is like a trip to my favorite fictional town to catch up with some old friends. I’ve been reading Vale’s books and her characters’ stories on a monthly basis since she released the first one, and now, years later, I’m completely invested in them and this world. The KPD Motorcycle Patrol series is what Lani has dubbed a next generation series because the stories are about the children of the lead couples from some of her early series, like Freebirds, Th

The tight shorts are back and the story is just as fantastic!

Humour. Heat. Heart. Family. These are hallmarks of this author’s stories and Frankie and Luca’s journey includes all that and more….

Sorrow. Grief. They haunted Frankie as she lived her life without the one she couldn’t survive losing. Even surrounded by family and friends, all-consuming work, she struggled through the days, never giving up hope…

“You taste like everything I should’ve never forgotten.”


Delivered with so much
A great way to end the KPD Motorcycle Patrol series.


Luca & Frankie's relationship felt absolutely organic. Even though it wasn't really 'them' during the first part of the story & it seemed like it took FOREVER for the truth to unravel completely, everything between them felt right. I was over-the-moon excited at the fact that their first time together didn't happen until after Luca returned from captivity. Getting the chance to remember some of their firsts was jus

I mean just rad that blurb and you will know that this book is going to be filled with emotion. I loved Frankie when we first met her back in Cora and Coke's book.

"I was a living, breathing dead person."

Every time I read a new Lani Lynn Vale book it becomes my favorite...until the next one is released. All of them make me smile, even when they're focused on a very serious subject, those chapter headings are still hilarious. She always manages to bring awareness to tough topics that I hadn't known about previously. She touches my funny bone and my heart, every time.

Gabriel Luca Maldonado III and Francesca Leandra Solomon have found their lobster in each other, and they should have had a happily ever after. However, when Luca goes off to become a Navy SEAL, things got derailed when the unthinkable happens, and he's listed as MIA. She's left broken, and even though she was able to achieve her dream becoming a doctor, she didn't get her happily ever after. Years go by, still no word on Luca, and everyone is starting to accept the fact that he's probably dead. ...more
The thing I’ve grown to love about LLV is she is tackling some major issues in her books. When you fins that author that writes real life stuff it touches you in a place and remains there forever.

This is the story of a TWO POW’s that are MIA after two years. Best friends and brothers in arms. They went to boot camp together, one fell in love and the other loved her just because his best friend was happy. This is about physical appearance and how so many people put such a value on what you look

This is a love story between Frankie and Luca. Luca and Frankie were in love and happy and they planned to have a family together. Everything was wonderful between them until Luca was deployed across the country.

This Book!! I think this book is one of the most emotional reads I have had the pleasure of reading by this fantastic author. Not only was I completely captivated, but my heart wept for this couple. Just when you think you have it figured out, Ms Vale smacks you right in the feelings with a twist! GAHHH I loved it!

Oh man when I was introduced to Luca in the previous book I knew his story was going to be hectic. And it was a hectic ride for me.
