There are a few lessons one has to learn for themselves. Then there are the lessons that most people don’t have to learn because it’s just not done.

For instance, most people know instinctively that they shouldn’t crave the mother of their brother’s child.

Bourne Pena isn’t most men.

Bourne does everything he can to fight the attraction he feels for Delanie, but in the

This was part two of the Pena-Davidsdottir hot mess of a quadrangle! After reading Booth and Dillan's happily ever after and finding out how LLV planned on working this confusion out, I couldn't wait to see how she'd work her magic on Bourne and Delanie.

So just like Booth had always liked Dillan, Bourne had always liked Delanie (and vice versa). The birth of sweet Asa changed things, but they only grew closer as a family. When Booth gave the first years of Asa's life to the military, he tasked B

I wondered what shenanigans Bourne and Delaney would get up to when I was reading the previous book. They definitely had their work cut out for them when it came to establishing their relationship. The conflict here was different from the other twin counterparts, which I appreciated.

There was much more to Bourne that met the eye and I feel we got the opportunity to get to know him a little better than we did Delaney. He really dominated the scenes and it seems he was characterized a little deep

So Mr July was none other than Bourne and since he is the twin of Booth I felt like I knew a whole lot of his story. And honestly I did. I knew that he stayed home and joined the SWAT team to help Delaney raise Asa.

I didn't really think about what he had given up to do that. Although I knew that he had been crushing on Delaney forever, I didn't really know much more about him. So having him front and centre was awesome and I enjoyed getting to know more about what made him tick.

Ahhhh, these Pena men sure know how to put me through the wringer! Join The Club unveiled the remaining of the Pena-Davidsdottir debacle and what an journey it was, Bourne was one tough cookie. Yes, a hot and delicious one, but tough nonetheless, even if at his core, he was all molten deliciousness, lol!

Yep, we knew going in that this one would a bit of a pickle given how much Bourne wanted to deny his attraction to Delanie. And after he slipped and revealed his hunger,

Join the Club rounds out the love quadrilateral with the story of Bourne and Delanie! Another adorable story. Bourne and Delanie had a tougher road than their twins, Dillan and Booth. Both Bourne and Delanie say some things that cause strife and must be overcome. Asa is delightful as per usual! The ending was a bit too unbelievable in my opinion, but entire TV shows were made from this type of event, so what do I know?

Bourne and Delanie both still resist the love they feel for each other o

Join the Club was a sinful romp of a romance full of no-holds-barred passion and drama. With a touch of the taboo and some lighthearted giggles, Lani Lynn Vale finished off the triangle between the Pena and Davidsdottir twins in a most satisfying way.

While you can read Join the Club as a standalone where Vale included enough details of the love triangle (quadrangle?) to do it justice, I would suggest reading Joke’s on You–Booth and Dillan’s book–to get the f

Finally we have part two of the love square. I can't even when I tell you how much I love their story. So freaking great.

Just like their twins Bourne and Delanie have loved eachother for a long time. Life had a different path for them all and it's fair to say it wasn't easy but out of that came sweet little Asa who has filled all of their lives with so much love, it made every single sacrifice worth it.

Now I'm going to say this book isn't what you think it is. I've seen some pretty unfair revi

Join the Club is the 7th book in Lani Lynn Vale’s KPD SWAT Generation 2.0 Series. The books follows Delanie and Bourne.

Delanie is the twin sister of Dillan, whom we meet in book #6, Joke’s on You. She trains service dogs. She is a super cute blond girl with a sassy attitude and a huge heart. She is mom to Asa and doing everything she can to be successful in her work and a devoted single mother.

As I did with Jokes on You, I went into Join the Club not entirely comfortable with the plot set up…two sets of twins, two sets of hot chemistry, one night that turns their entire worlds upside down and shatters their dreams of the future. As stated in my review for Jokes on You the basic circumstances this group fall into is not my favorite and it still bothers me some, saying that I still wanted to know how Bourne and Delanie ended up finding a HEA and how all 5 involved managed to l

A sweet conclusion…

Bourne and Delanie’s path was twisty to say the least. Sisters and brothers in love but a child born to the wrong pair… Oh yes, the family drama was lit a few years ago but with Devon and Booth having found their way I couldn’t wait for this story! If I thought the drama was on the downward slide, I was completely mistaken…

Adorable Asa didn’t have one set of parents, he really had two. When Bourne and Delanie decided to finally dive into the feelings that they’ve had for years
Bourne Pena wants Delanie Davidsdottir, however she is the mother of his brother's son. Complicated doesn't even begin to explain the relationship with Delanie. Delanie believes though that Bourne does not like her, she couldn't be more wrong. After a weekend together though everything changes and Bourne is ready to go after Delanie but they are not ready to go public and before it gets to that they end up having trouble they never expected.

I wasn't sure about this book initially because I had a

I liked this one, was glad that Bourne and Delanie got their heads out of their asses and went after each other. After a rocky start, things seemed fine, they even managed to have a good relationship with Dillan and Booth. The one big stumbling block came with Bourne and spending time with Asa. I was glad that after Delanie ripped him a new one and Booth stood there quiet, he stood up to them both on what his relationship past and present with Asa, it needed to be said.

4 Star Review Join The Club (Swat Next Generation 2.0 #7) by Lani Lynn Vale 

I knew this book would be complicated, but I had no idea how much. After Booth and Dillan's happily ever after I was intrigued as to what Lani Lynn Vale had in store for Bourne Pena and Delanie Davidsdottir.

For what seems like forever Bourne and Delanie have had feelings for one another but due to circumstances have ignored them. When the attraction becomes too much to ignore, they decide to have a night of passion and l

When Delanie and Bourne head to a friend's wedding together, it finally, FINALLY sparks the fire between them, and their long running attraction is finally consummated in a steamy, oops, the power's out kind of way. Bourne has always held back from acting on his feelings for his twin's baby mama, and Delanie has done the exact same thing with the uncle of the world's cutest, most adorable kid, Asa.

I don’t know how but I totally missed the HEA or rather the untangling of the mess between the twin sets of Booth and Bourne with Dillon and Delanie – with Booth and Dillion finally figuring out their tangled mess and their feelings for each other in Joke’s On You

Woot-woot! Both sets of twins have their HEAs now!!


Bourne & Delanie’s story evoked a slew of emotions in me; frustration, joy, confusion, laughter & sadness to name a few. I didn’t fall for them like I did for Booth & Dillan but they sure knew how to get me all riled up in certain scenes!

I felt immense relief when Bourne & Delanie got together. FINALLY things are the way they always should’ve been; Booth with Dillan & Bourne with Delanie. I ADORE Asa but will neve

Gah, I have been waiting for Bourne and Delanie's book and it was totally worth the wait! I absolutely loved this story, these two have HOT HOT HOT chemistry! I think they had more than Booth and Dillon and that is saying something! ;)

These two are in a very complicated situation and have denied themselves for YEARS what they really want. This book is almost like a sequel to Joke's On You (I recommend reading first) and happens around the same timeline and it it is so great to see how everythin

Join the Club is the seventh book in the SWAT Generation 2.0 series. I was a little sceptical about reading this novel, simply because I had formed this assumption in my head about Bourne and Delanie. Joke was on me, because I absolutely loved it.

I adored Bourne and Delanie and loved everything about their story. I could feel the connection and the longing from their first interaction and that only built as the story went on. They had been in love and pining for each other ever since hi

Lani Lynn Vale is back with the addicting men and woman of the SWAT Generation 2.0 series and y'all, I'm loving every single book this series has produced so far. Each is unputdownable in all the ways and those feels these characters evoke, gahhh I can't get enough. You always get heat, heart, and suspense when you crack open an LLV book, most especially with our SWAT guys.

Bourne is a loyal brother, a great friend and the best uncle who is always willing to do whatever he can for those he cares about. This is why that even though he has been in love with the mother of his brother’s baby for as long as he can remember he will never consider for them to be more than friends.

Join The Club is the long anticipated story of Bourne and Delanie and believe me it was worth every minute of the wait. Their story is highly emotional and I will admit tears fell in certain parts of their journey. Theirs was a complicated love but in reality it was one that was always going to be a certainty. It was witty, entertaining, heartfelt, steamy, passionate and action packed. A story of family bonds that will touch your heart in such a special way. However Asa was the one that ultimate ...more

It’s finally time for Bourne and Delanie!! These two have always had a massive attraction but do to certain situations they kept it under wraps never really navigating the waters of there attraction like they should until they can’t help it anymore. I adored Bourne, he always put others needs before him and was such a giving man with a lot of love to give to Delanie but she’s more on the cautious side and is scared of a future with Bourne for many reasons. Super enjoyable

Bourne doesn't want to have this insane attraction for Delanie, Bourne is the uncle to her child.. that's right.. she has a child with his twin brother. Did I mention that Bourne has been in love with her since he first saw her... in college. This story of these meant to be lovers is filled with something so complex and emotional. Their coupling is EVERYTHING!

How is it possible for me to love every book more and more?

This is book 8 in the SWAT Generation 2.0 series and it’s Booth and Delanie’s story. I’m so happy that we finally get their story after the long build up to this point. There were a lot of ups and downs with this story but it was really great.
