You want some?
She snarls those words at him with barely concealed hostility the moment he arrives at her window to ask for her license and registration.
After a few choice words, he lets her go with not one ticket, but three.
Next time she should check the attitude at the door and realize that he’s a cop, and just doing his job.
Come get some.
Fast forward a week, and he’s still unable to think about anything else but her and her bad attitude-oh, and those sexy lips, angry eyes, and her promise to make his life hell.
Knowing he should stay away, he takes a step back and tries not to think about anything that has to do with those long legs, and that mouth that could be used for much better things than spewing venom.
Then she makes a mistake.
At an interview, she rattles off a random number to use as a reference for a job that she desperately needs, and that number just happens to be Johnny’s.
She’ll regret being so rude, and one day she’ll think twice when she decides to throw attitude toward a man like him.
Vowing to make her life hell, he decides to have a little fun.
Never get enough.
What he doesn’t expect is to fall for her.
The more Johnny learns about June, the deeper he digs his hole. Soon, he doesn’t know which way is up, and he’s just fine with that.
Over time, he learns that not everyone bothers to dig past her prickly demeanor and get to the woman that lives deeper.
When one too many citizens of Hostel, Texas tries to back her against the wall, he’s had enough.
After all, you don’t mess with what’s his.

First off – hot cop with hit chest showing on the cover? Please and thank you – wish you were real, you could frisk me any time of the day; cuff me while holding me again the cruiser, please. Suey like.
Yeah, I am done. Lets real it back in for an actual review…
This is my first Lani novel, though I have seen her around with other novels that have caught my eye, just haven’t gotten around to them just yet, so I am happy I finally have at least one of her books under my belt! And let me tell you there were a lot of things I love and a few I disliked about Get You Some.
Firstly, I had a off hinged feeling about the characters. It was really a like or dislike kind of scenario. June was someone who was a familiar face within this small town; oh do I love small town complexities within tropes. I really enjoyed her backstory as it developed into the love interest. She was a really interesting character; she was independent and strong willed but at times she had these moments where she was overly snide in her rebuffs towards the ‘haters’ in the town. I liked it, for the most part, other times it was just a little too much. Johnny on the other hand made me swoon. He had this attitude about him that screamed ass hole with a heart; I really am a sucker for those types of fictional men.
Secondly – oh my lanta that chemistry. Johnny and June were on fire. I mean my kindle burst into flames it was hot. Even with the sexual chemistry being such a fantastic blend, they really helped each other on a mental and emotional level. Both suffering from troubling pasts, which I loved how the author incorporated this within the dynamics of their characters personalities. It really strengthen their bond.
And lastly there was a slight weird factor I had about the plot and dynamics of the progression for the chemistry. Obviously I loved the chemistry between Johnny and June, they had this tension awkward thing at starters which developed into a fun, adorable fling of sorts that turned really steamy. It flowed, it really did. But there were parts where things didn’t flow. At least from my perspective. One minute something would be going on with our duo, then something would trigger and shift, this lead into a more questionable plot change that I couldn’t quite follow. Not bad, and obviously I don’t want to say which parts because that would spoil the story, but there were just particular additives to the plot between our duo’s dynamics that more or less did not add up for me. Maybe the best I can offer is that at times it was kickass, loved it then other times it had this awkward feels for me… made things hard to invest and connect with.
Overall, this was a great fast paced read with really great character building that kept me glued to the pages. I definitely like Johnny more than I care to admit – plus the dorky connections between Johnny Cash and June Carter with the fictional characters was deliciously adorable. I really enjoyed this novel! I cannot wait to add more of this author to my ever growing romance TBR.
