Angie is a survivor. Anything you could throw at her, she could overcome.
This time, his heart was getting what it wanted. If Angie wasn’t able to see what he was offering, what was right here in front of her, well then, he’d just have to damn well show her.
Put Out is the 5th and final installment in the Kilgore Fire series by Lani Lynn Vale and I think maybe, because of this, I was just a little too emotionally invested in Bowe and Angie’s story. I read it slowly, savored it.. never wanted it to end. It all felt so final. And it was beautifully written, of course. LLV can write these kinds of books like none other really.
We, as readers, had been introduced to both characters previously (if you had read any of the series books up to this point) so they are not brand new. But now both Bowe and Angie get the chance to be developed, to be nurtured and to grow. And that is exactly what LLV did for them. We get to see Angie who had the sorriest of backgrounds, fight for basically everything and NOT back down. Especially when it comes to her little girl.
And Bowe… *sexy beast alert, yall* WOW!! He was something else! Quiet and stoic, but down and dirty all at the same time. Where are these men in real life? Where?? And so persistently patient (is that even a thing?) with Angie and gentle with her daughter. I loved him from the start.
I wont say there wasnt drama with this story because there was – and a good dose of it. But IMO, it was handled with finesse. Im not usually a big fan of drama and angst, but I knew up front there was some and thought the author did a great job with the situation.
The book as well as the series as a whole was just amazing! I will happily recommend it and am definitely looking forward to what’s next from Lani Lynn Vale!
