Ford Spurlock has known Ashe Trammel since they were babies.

He’s also done his level best to stay away from her because every time he gets to within five feet of her, they’re fighting like cats and dogs.

Ashe is the apple of her father’s eye. The motorcycle club princess that was never to be harmed in any way—or touched for that matter. And he’s always resented the fact tha

It's LIVE!

Ashe and Ford were frenemies. They grew up together, did a lot of messed up things together, broke bones together, had each other's backs, and were at each other's necks all their lives. They were antagonistic towards each other, but if one of them needed the other, they were there... no matter what. So what happens when all of that built up tension that they'd denied for so long finally explodes? Well, you get the awesomeness that Lani Lynn Vale created!

Ford and Ashe were childhood frenemies who bickered often yet protected one another. As adults, that tension takes a turn in a different direction and I enjoyed how it unfolded. They had good chemistry and the intimacy was sensual.

The plot felt a little all over the place and OTT in some ways but it was entertaining nonetheless. I didn’t note any disturbances in pace and the overall tone fits the typical LLV signature style.

I am looking forward to the next in the series.

Ok that's the Lani Lynn Vale book I have been wanting. Honestly I read the first two books in this series and didn't even care what this one was about I already knew I was reading it. Then I read the blurb and was a little apprehensive.

Ashe sounded like a bit of a bitch and I thought I wouldn't like her. But honestly whoever wrote that blurb was a dirty rotten liar because I loved Ashe. She and Ford might have fought like cat and dog but underneath it they were thick as thieves and I really en

I enjoyed this book.

Ashe and Ford had a love/hate relationship. They had had one for years. Everyone could see it but them.

Ashe had always done what ever she could do to help ford. Even if that meant cheating for him on tests in high school so he would pass.

As they grew, their love/hate grew too.

When a bet happened, Ashe knew she could not turn it down. She could not let Ford win.

But that bet turned into more.

More arguing. More time together. More hate. But also more love.

But can that love overc

“Mother,” I said. “Last week, I saw Ford with some beauty queen. She had a head full of long, red hair that fell softly down her back in waves. She had beautiful lips and perky tits. And she was about eleven feet tall in five-inch heels. Trust me when I say, I’m not his type.”

I was allergic to latex. I was allergic to birth control.

“I want to do that next time,” I informed him. He shrugged. “There won’t be a next time, remember?” I nodded. “Oh. Yeah

I’m absolutely over the virgin heroine thing. Seriously?!!!

Manwhore hero. He kept a latex free condom for a chance that he had sex with heroine, but still slept with other women. Nothing says loving a woman like sleeping with women that aren’t her.

Like an airhead, she somehow finds this romantic?

I've come to the consensus that instead of dealing with the issues at hand most of LLV's characters just ignore it and never address it. We're told about the issues but theres never a confrontation or discussion. Also...if the heroine is a virgin (and she most typically is...) its never acknowledged as being something of importance by the hero.

However, I guess by ignoring all of it then theres no angst and perhaps that's what the author is going for.

In this story the MC's have always had a love/

Whoever wrote the blurb of this book did a horrible job. And the tittle does not fit the story.
Ashe asks Ford to be a model in this calendar and donate money for her charity (a cat shelter), but he refuses. Then, they make a bet: he'll donate money if she gets into SWAT. And if she doesn't, she has to go in a date with him and eat ramen. That's how she enters the police department, where Ashe works.
These two have known each other since they were babies. They "hate" each other, or at least that's

Laugh out loud read with all the feels...

I probably say that about all of this author’s stories but they have never failed to make me laugh. To make me misty umpteen times. And always, always leave me craving more. Unique characters with relationships that spark emotion across the spectrum, Ford and Ashe are the latest example of why I am such a devoted fan…

“I’ve loved you for forever... You were just too busy arguing with me to see it.”

Swear Mary mother of all I was just not fucking ready for it. For them. Like!!!! HTF did we get here already?.

Ford and Ashe are double trouble. The best of friends who love to hate eachother and occasionally throw a punch in here or there.

There is no doubting their chemistry because these pair are damn near made for eachother. All it took was a bet. Oh and the threat of moving to shove a rocket up his stubborn ass.

Ashe and Ford’s story grabbed me from the beginning. I enjoyed their banter and the fact that she was a badass fighter in a “I’m so cool you won’t know what is happening until it’s late” way. And Ford was so supportive of her. *happy sigh* I just wanted to read about them forever.
I can’t wait to see if there will be any conclusion to the serial killer story. That part of the book really intrigued me.

Ashe and Ford's arguing about everything got old so very fast. Yet it wasn't hard to see that it was easy for them to go from arguing to lovers, the old saying of a fine line between love and hate being true. There was a lot in this one that I wanted to know more of, things that were sort of dropped. Sure there was a note from the author at the end that she was setting things up for later books, but it left this one very light. ...more

Oh boy, talk about fighting like cats and dogs!!! Ford and Ashe are the definition of mortal enemies since childhood, and now all that banter and friction exploded into the most intense of romances! OMG, the banter was just so SPOT ON!!!

These SWAT 2.0’s are as delicious as they covers point too, and Mr. March’s story was no exception, I enjoyed the heck out of it, who knew that this deep seated childhood nemesis could turn into a love this bright, when they barely manag

Review by Lisa Kane

I keep reading that this is an enemy to lovers romance, but I wouldn't say that Ashe Trammel and Ford Spurlock are exactly enemies. They were raised together, but they were rivals. Each trying to outdo each other with pranks. As they got older, Ashe is disgusted with the parade of girls that seem to come and go in Ford's life.

Ashe is a huge cat lover and will do anything to save the innocent little lives. So when an opportunity comes along for Ford to pose in a calendar aimed

This is Ford Spurlock and MC princess Ashe Trammel’s enemies to friends to lovers story.

They have been adversaries since birth, so their history is long and complicated, but underneath it all is a relationship built on friendship. They fight like cats and dogs and yet there is a fine line between love and hate. Particularly as the sexual tension between them is building.

From heartstopping to heartwarming, Lani Lynn Vale definitely makes her presence known. At first glimpse, she entices with humor and then tempts the senses with so much more. Maybe Swearing will Help is endearingly, alluring. Ford and Ashe sneak up on your emotional blindside to wreak havoc on your heart. A story like this one is easy to love. The hard part is saying goodbye when the end has come and gone.

It's okay.
Hero and heroine grow up together, hating each other so as with this troupe they see each other date though the only times it's mentioned is about him.
No intimate scenes other than the Hero and heroine.

It was funny in parts.

Ford and Ashe’s book was a cute enemies to lovers book. The type where Ford was allowed to pick on Ashe but no one else better touch her. Most of the story was sweet, subtle attraction...just thinking they won’t work. But boy, they so do. Steamy with just a tiny bit of a cat mystery going on. Entertaining and fun to read.

Ford and Ashe really know how to push each other's buttons. There are so many funny scenes but don't be fooled they get steamy too. This is an entertaining read. The best part to me is getting to read about their parents too.

It’s always been said that the boys who treat girls the worst out on the playground and ultimately whenever they’re around each other actually like them in a way they don’t like anyone else, and even though it’s a backward way of looking at things, for Ford Spurlock and Ashe Trammel, that seems to be the epitome of their love/hate relationship - one that started when they were babies and has carried through to adulthood.

Not sure why, but this story wasn't... On the same level as others. I mean, it had Lani vibe, but... Maybe because I'm not a big fan, when H and h are frenemies and it takes years for them to finally pull their heads of theirs asses to see, what's obvious.
I like ex drama, but I'm not disappointed when there's none. But here I needed some drama from Fords ex. Don't know why, but I feel kinda robbed. Lol.
In all it's OK story, just something was missing for me.

Maybe Swearing Will Help continues SWAT generation 2.0 series and I gobbled this one up as quickly as the other ones! In this edition, we get Ford Spurlock (parents Trance and Viddy from Kevlar to my Vest) and Ashe Trammel (parents Torren and Tru from Charge to my Line). Ford and Ashe have known each other since they were babies. They have bickered since they learned to talk.

I'm really starting to fall head over heals for LLV's characters.
The men all seem to be the right mix of sweet, funny and completely alpha. The females are strength, determination and also hilarious.

This book was no exception. A lifetime of history growing up in the Dixie Warden's Ford and Ashe despise each other. A life time of the constant push and pull without realising the thin line that is their love-hate relationship.
