There’s something about the tension of enemies to lover tropes that just do it for me. Tide and Coraline are as adversarial as they come. Constantly annoying one another just for kicks and taking advantage of any free moment to antagonize. But behind all that is something else. I really enjoyed the process of them figuring it out.

The plot had its OTT elements as LLV tends to do and it was quite entertaining. It was nice to see a different side to Tide because he typically presented as standoffi

Oh boy, Not a Role Model INDEED! Talk about cat and mouse, these two can’t be in the same space without going at each other, but we all know what happens to two opposites… LOL

I love a good enemies to lovers, so Coraline and Tide’s story had me from the get go, but these two, specially Tide as the instigator, they went at it all the freaking time! It was like a permanent itch when it came to one another, that myself, as a sucker for banter soaked up every moment!

Holy shit! This one was a roller-coaster from the very beginning and it was amazing.
I just love Tide. Dr. Crow is just the best ever. There were a lot of ups and downs that were just jaw drop-in. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

Coreline and Tide have been something less than friends forever, since he started tormenting her in school. Now they're neighbors and neither is happy about it. She's sassy, mouthy and doesn't put up with his shit, at all. He isn't nice on a good day, doesn't like people, and treats most of them like crap. Then he does something so out of character and saves her. Now the tide has turned and they're seeing each other in a whole new light. They're finding all th
OMG! Tide and Coreline's was an entertaining one for sure. They had that love hate kind of relationship going on but, beneath the snipes and snipping, they really love one another and have for forever.

That story at times made you laugh, and other times wanted to make you cry. Coreline has such an amazing personality, she is fun and funny and has this outgoing look on life and soul shines brightly and an all around sweetheart. We loved that sassy mouth of hers, too! She was an easy character to

Oof, these two! They couldn't be any angstier. Coreline and Tide's banter, back and forth, squabbling, and snarkiness are like foreplay, man. These two really represent the phrase that there's a fine line between hate and love. Their chemistry is off the charts and the attraction is so clear. It just makes it kind of humorous to see these two, squabbling only to end up giving in to their attraction. I loved their story. I especially loved how Tide was the first one to realise he was in love with ...more

Omg Tide and Coreline were amazing! I loved the whole hate to love, and that feeling deep down was so much more that neither of them wanted to see. The banter between these two was so funny I laughed out loud a few times. I love that Coreline was such a strong woman. She didn’t need tide to make her that way, she just was. Tide was so sweet even when he wasn’t nice to her. These two had amazing chemistry that I could feel from the start. There were a few scenes that bright tears to my eyes but L ...more

"I hate everything about you. Why do I love you?" -Three Days Grace & Tide Crow (probably)

Hmmm. So, if you combine It Happens with a dash of Hail Mary and some Battle Crows MC Series seasoning, you get Not a Role Model--a real, good 'ole Texas treat. It's not quite as dark as the previous book, but it's not all fun and games like Make Me Your Villain was. Some fun, some crying. Some laughter, some "WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME AGAIN, LLV?" HA! If you like a good enemies to lovers story, this one

Tide and Coraline stole the top spot for me in this series to date.

Enemies to lovers is my favourite Troupe. When you pair that with Lani's wicked humour, one liners and style of writing.. it's a win win for me.

Tide is this deliciously alpha asshole with a attitude and side of sweet that soothes the burn. His need to push Cora's every button had me equal parts frustrated for her sake and crying in laughter at the ridiculousness of their blindness to the sexual tension between them.

I just... don't understand. There are so many good reviews for this book and I am just left feeling as though I have read something completely different from everyone else. Lani Lynn Vale has been an automatic purchase author for me since I first discovered her books but I am thinking of completely abandoning these books after the recent string of disappointments.

So this book was considerably better than Prices book. But at the same time I'm starting to feel like this series is a bit bland and boring. I guess I just expected more out of this series.

So Tide and Coreline have supposedly been "Frenemies" for year's. Starting all the way back in high school. Look I have No issues with Frenemies/Enemies to lovers stories. BUT there has to be a reason, and for Tide and Coreline there doesn't seem to be a reason to pick on each other. Nor does Mrs. Vale give

I’ve enjoyed this LLV series quite a bit….till this one. I struggled with both Tide and Coraline - Tide more so. He never won me over and I have a pretty big problem when the Hero constantly refers to the heroine as a bitch. Granted she gave it back to him BUT it just doesn’t scream love to me when that’s his go to name for her. Their bickering got tiresome and childish.
Plus, while I can forgive Tide for his reaction the first time he “ran” from her the second time was just not redeemable. Cora

Not a Role Model is the 4th book in the Battle Crows MC series by Lani Lynn Vale. This is Tide and Coreline's story. Theirs is an enemies-to-lovers romance, that started all the way back in high school and has followed them on to adulthood ( early 30s) . Tide is really quite the instigator, making sure to set Coreline off. She definitely gives Tide as good as he dishes out but mentally it affects her. Just know, there's a reason for his actions. Suddenly, things took quite the turn and Tide get ...more
This story was a little weird for me as I just didn’t feel the romance or the love. I guess the bullying part was well written that I believed it! Again with the cancer bit I’m beginning to think there is an environmental factor going on here some type of cancer cluster?!

Tide continues to poke the bear while Coreline gives him his own dose of grief.

4.5 stars Another winner from the Crows. This was a proper enemies to lovers story and LLV's take on it was just as good as I hoped it would be. This has me in my feels in more than one spot, and I totally fell head over heels for both Tide and Coreline. Cannot wait for more. Again. I volunteered to read and review an early copy of this. All opinions are my own. ...more

I'm not typically a fan of the enemies-to-lovers romance genre, but LLV turned me into one with this book! Coreline and Tide have known each other since they were young and in school. And they've hated one another. Tide is a surgeon, a motorcycle club member, and Coreline's new neighbor. She is a welder and a mechanic, a very independent woman. Sparks fly between these two more ways than one. When Coreline has a run-in with a bad guy all bets are off. Tide is done. This book was a little differe ...more

Elvis and Roll Tide!!

Angsty from start to finish. These two are at each other’s throats constantly but don’t let anyone else mess with the other or it’s on.

There is a fine line between Love and hate and these two ride that line.

“Roll Tide loves me. What can I say?” I teased. His eyes widened. “Roll Tide? You do realize that Tide went to A&M, correct?

Plenty of humor and explosive chemistry makes this one a page turner.

I really wasn’t expecting to love Tide and Coreline’s story as much as I did. I like the frenemies to romance type of book and this one delivered a sweet frenemies to husband romance. I think I loved their story more because of their history. I think their history allowed them to speak freely with each other, which drew you into the story line.

Not a Role Model is book number four in Lani Lynn Vale's Battle Crows MC.

Feel free to interpret "going at it" whichever way you want. *snicker* There isn't a whole lot of love lost between the two, and their issues date back to when they were kids at that!

Tide and Coreline hate one another. It is a fact and one that has been proven since they were kids. However, they say there is a thin line between love and hate and this line is almost invisible. Coreline is probably one of the strongest female characters Lani Lynn Vale has ever written. She doesn't need Tide to make her complete or to make her stronger. She just is, all on her own. I really liked that.

While Tide is more or less like his brothers. Although he is a doctor which I think made him e

Tide Crow had lived to make Coreline King’s life miserable since highschool. And, Coreline couldn’t help but to give it right back towards the bully who she couldn’t seem to stop thinking about. Frenemies that often found themselves spending way too much time together. But, there is a very fine line between love and hate . . .
