    It's LIVE!! https://amzn.to/31jZ0L7 Pace was the kind of man any woman would be not only happy and proud to call her own, but one every decent single woman in the entire universe absolutely deserves!! Oakley needed a kidney in order to live and she was lucky in that Pace had an extra one to give. Pace was former military whose life was changed forever by a bomb. But this man didn't let anything get him down. Not his rotten upbringing, not his le...

    Oakley and Pace's book.As I was reading this book last night,my husband came into the room.I told him I was reading a love story where the heroine has end stage renal disease,that dialysis is no longer working for her and she is going to die if she does not get a kidney transplant asap.The hero is a wounded war vet who is now a bilateral BKA due to a road side bomb. He says to me" how is that a romance?"I shook my head at him and carried on.So,de...

    "Everything, when it came to Pace Vineyard, was big. His heart. His Cock. The orgasms that he gave." Tell me, who could read the synopsis for this book and not want to devour it? It's a swoon-worthy, heart-melting, laugh-inducing ride that you don't want to miss out on, guaranteed. How the author manages to always tackle such serious topics that inform the reader while also providing nonstop entertainment is noteworthy. I can't get enough of her ...

    Lani Lynn Vales stories are legit kindle crack for me. I love the romance, the swoons and how they make me feel. Oakley and Pace's story was amazing. I laughed and teared up. I love how different this author's storylines are but are so engaging and compelling you can't help but become addicted to the story at the first glance.This story was so good. When Pace Vineyard decides to donate a kidney to the sister of a friend but he never thought Oakle...

    Maybe 3.5I have such a hard time with this author's books lately. I'm honestly now sure why, or what changed...but they're so hit or miss for me. I didn't hate this one, but I can't say I loved it either. I have to say that the beginning was good. I enjoyed getting to know Pace. I actually really liked him. I'm not sure I really felt the connection between him and Oakley though. And I'm not quite sure that I ever really got to know Oakley. When s...

  • Love & Lavender Book Review
    4.5 Sparkling Love StarsLani Lynn Vale has created the most refreshing love story! I'm quite new to her books; however, it's like a breath of fresh air when starting. Let me tell you, Oakley and Pace have the sweetest love story! They truly make my heart melt. I loved every page, and devoured it completely this weekend. LLV jams her books full of humor, sweetness, HAWTNESS, and a little dash of suspense. I'd Rather Not is the complete package. Oa...
  • Astraycat
    Glad to see Trance and Viddy' s(from Kevlar To My Vest) kids were all grown up. H and h were both so strong, esp H, never did he feel self-conscious about his situation; instead, he saved h and encouraged her whenever she needed. Moreover, I liked how they stayed together and no push-away. Great epilogue, too!

    Lani Lynn Vale always hits the mark on the perfect man! Elizabeth @Carolina Chic's ReadAnother perfect man .... Sighs! How do we always get a home run? Pace fell for his girl with one look at her photo. When he has the chance to save her life, he jumps and fall he does. Oakley is hanging on to her life but only for a few days, then a miracle happens by the name of Pace. She didn't expect to fall in love with him at first sight. 5 Heartbeating Sta...

    I've been loving this series so much and I've been devouring every single one like candy.  I'd Rather Not was such a heartwarming read and you can't help but swoon over Pace, a little bit. A man who has lost so much, but offers so much more. He's definitely a man with a heart of gold.I loved Oakley as well and every single person that surrounded her. She's just pure gold and has endured so much with her life because of her failing kidneys.The l...

    Ok WOW I'd Rather Not was amazing loved everything about it it's written by one of my all time favorite authors Lani Lynn Vale and it's part of the KPD Motorcycle patrol series and it's a next gen series ( Kevlar To My Vest couples daughter ) . This can be read as standalone I do recommend that you read every one of LLV books you don't want to miss them . I really liked the characters and the storyline like I always do when it comes to this autho...

    ***This and other reviews can be found at www.imasweetandsassybookwhore.com ****ARC*Instead of saying I’d Rather Not, for me it’s an I’d rather yes! Okay so the book whore is a big dork but still I loved it. Sometimes fate intercedes when it is needed and for Oakley it happened at the right time. Pace, god I fell in love with this man big time. The hell he has gone through, you would think that he would be hardened but the goodness of this ...
  • Britt Franks Red Hatter Book Blog
    Let the book hangover begin. Lani Lynn Vale took a bar that was already set sky high, laughed at it and leaped 100 feet higher with I’d Rather Not. She’s knocked all my favorite book boyfriends to the side a firmly planted Pace as number one king of Book boyfriends. She went and shoved all my favorite heroines to the ground and put Oakley in the number one spot there too. What I’m saying here is this is my number one favorite Lani book ever...

    I took that little bit off because I was left with the question of why and what of the wife, is she going to show up later????As far as the story goes I loved Pace, I mean this guy is so freaking great it ain't funny. The things he says and does to show his love...swoon. I loved loved loved seeing Oakley's parents (maybe too much) Viddy is still one of my favorite female characters in LLV world. I appreciated Oakley's concerns and fears and thoug...

    I am so in love with this story! As always the characters are amazing, flawed and real, dealing with an illness and more.Oakley is such a fun person, she is so full of light and so sarcastic..I love her.Pace is a bit lost but fighting his way through life.Oakley has lost all hope, but Pace not only gives it back to her, but he opens doors she didn't think she could have.These two are so so sweet and fun and hot!!!I love her family to bits!As alwa...
  • Heather
    If you’re looking for a sweet sassy sexy laugh out loud read with characters that will make your heart melt then this is the book for you. Lani Lynn Vale creates characters that just feel so real. The banter is off the charts. Oakley and Pace were perfect for each other both in body (specifically kidney) and soul. Throw in Pace’s crazy mother and sister....a jerk of a boss and you have shenanigans galore. This book is the perfect read while l...

    I am still riding the high of everything Spurlock hours after finishing this. This family has always been my favorite of LLV's characters, so I was stoked when I saw we were getting the first book with the offspring of them. Phenomenal read and I can't wait for the next Spurlock child to get their own book so I can live in their world a little longer ♥ I am still riding the high of everything Spurlock hours after finishing this. This family h...

    Let's start with these series always finds a way to connect. I love when I find a place in the book that make me go "ok now I get it". How a certain scene happens in one book but the next you see it from someone else's point of view. Now as for Pace he's well everything I didn't expect him to be. From other books I thought he would be hard to love, but looks can be deceiving. He has such a big heart and so much love to give he just never had anyo...

    AwesomeHave to say,this is my favourite of the series so far!Little Oakley is grown up but becomes I'll after the flu to the point she needs a new kidney. Pace was with Ford in the army and loved how Oakley would send her little brother care packages,looking at one when a roadside bomb goes off,he wakes to find hes needs both legs removed and his team mate cherry had died.Back home he sees Oakley's father's post asking for a donor,he gets checked...

    Review by: Jennifer(5 stars)I feel like I say this every time... probably because I do! BUT to get the feels that this book will give you, to have your world shattered and sit on the edge of your seat, the previous books need to be read before this... and I'm not talking the KPD series, I'm saying the whole shebang.. Boomtown on. We fell in love with Oakley when she called 911 to get patched into Trance's radio to tell him that "Fort ate her dart...

    I'd Rather Not is the third book in the KDP Motorcycle Patrol series by the talented Lani Lynn Vale. I think I have a Lani Lynn Vale addiction. I can't get enough of her books and especially this series. There's just something about these men that gets me fired up! They are all different, but they do have things in common. And the uniform? Oh my, please and thank you! All the books in the series so far run along the same timeline. So, we've met P...

    5 SMOOCHES!I’ve been reading Lani Lynn Vale’s work since she released her first book, and I’ve read them all. I’m completely invested in this world that she’s created in East Texas and Louisiana, and her books are the literary equivalent of must-see TV for me. I’ve been reading about these characters, their stories and their communities for years now, and each book is like catching up with a group of old friends. The KPD Motorcycle Pa...
  • Kay Daniels (Kay Daniels Romance)
    I'd Rather Not blew all my expectations away!! It contained all the feels. It went from emotional to funny to steamy hot to suspenseful. I'd Rather Not has everything plus so much heart, it's a fantastic read!   Each chapter began with a quirky quote or funny text. I adored them to the point that I was sending them to my daughter so we could chuckle over them together. Even at the roughest moments or steamiest times, those quotes made me laugh ...

    5+ I sobbed like a baby Stars!!!!!!!I don’t cry at many LLV books. I can only think of one other that brought me to tears but this one had me on the verge all day and then when I got home the flood gates opened! Could be that I’m very emo today but I don’t think so. This was just a true testament to...SURVIVAL!Pace, grew up with the most despicable family and made something of himself all by himself. Then while deployed his life changed dra...
  • Cassie May
    Reviewed on behalf of 3 Degrees of Fiction BlogThis book is book 3 in the KPD Motorcycle Patrol and it can be read as a complete standalone. I did not read the previous books, but will probably pick them up som time, because this one was a really good story. The characters were real and honest and I fell in love with them on page 1. With both of them because I laughed so hard over the care package Oakley sent to her brother and with Pace, because...

    Gemma’s ReviewLani Lynn Vale is one author that I have been recommand constantly over the past few months and I have finally taken the plunge reading I'd Rather Not. First thing I have to say is why did it take me so long to read one of this authors storiess because they have an amzing ability to tell a story. The story of Oakley and Pace was truely amazing with so much emotion throughout this book that I really felt everythign that the charact...

    5 STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance ReviewSo, every time I read a book by LLV I think, this is my favorite book of her's. Then I pick up the next one and I'm like, nope, this is it. Truth be told, LLV has slipped into my top spot of go-to authors. I love all her stories. I feel like when I open each one, I'm catching up with family. I loved this story so much. I loved getting caught up in the journey of Pace and Oakley. Pace was everything...
  • Busy Bumble Bee Book Reviews
    So this is the third book in Mrs. Vale's KPD Motorcycle Patrol series. I'm going, to be honest here and say that although I do have the first two books on my kindle I actually Have Not finished reading them. I'm about halfway through them. But I'm going to say that they really don't need to be read in order to get the full effect of the series and can be read as standalone's. In this book, we get Oakley and Pace, and I have kinda been waiting for...
