Booth Pena definitely didn’t make the smartest of decisions when he was a teenager.

At eighteen, he knocked a girl up and signed up for the military all in the same day—signing his life away in more ways than one. Fast forward six weeks and he’s in bootcamp learning that he’s going to be a father while also learning that not only is he going to be deployed, but it’s going to stay that way for a year.

There weren’t a lot of things that the baby’s mother and he saw eye to eye on after that. He honestly wasn’t sure why he even slept with her in the first place.

Okay, that last part is a lie. He knows exactly why he slept with her. Because the real woman he’s in love with, her twin sister, Dillan, won’t give him the time of day.

Five years later, and he still wants her.

Now he’s home for good, being the best father and police officer that he can be, and still he’s not good enough.


Dillan Davidsdottir hated Booth Pena. Immensely.

She hated him because he slept with her sister, then left. Granted, she knew that he hadn’t meant to leave like he did, unknowingly and unconsciously leaving his son behind, but that didn’t change the fact that he had.

Five years later, and she still dislikes him just as much now as she did when he chose the wrong sister to take to his bed.

Maybe if he’d chosen her, her heart wouldn’t be broken, and his wouldn’t be untouchable.

But when a SWAT officer sees his life flash before his eyes, and decides that enough is enough, what’s a girl to do?

Give in, that’s what.


Forbidden love unleashed! Book six in the KPD SWAT Generation 2.0 series has Lani Lynn Vale tempting her readers with Booth and Dillan’s love story in JOKES ON YOU. It was fast paced and delicious to devour while that hint of intrigue kept us on our toes. I wanted more dramatics and justice based on the secrets we uncover, but overall it was a solid read and has me hungry for Bourne and Delanie’s story.

Booth Pena is easy to fall for as a character. He’s alpha but not in an “in your face” way, he adores his son, and he just can’t let go of the love he’s felt for years. Watching him finally reach out and grab for it after a scary incident is so satisfying!

Dillan Davidsdottir is easy to like as well. She’s kind and accomplished and does anything she can for someone she loves on a regular basis. She’s been fighting her feelings for so many years that now that they’re all coming to the surface, it seems so easy to just be.

I recommend this book and the series as a whole to anyone who loves a close-knit group of cops who go after love and family with everything they’ve got. There’s quite a connection of friendship, brotherhood and love in every book.
