About AIN'T DOIN' ITCoke Solomon has lived a full life. He’s a retired army drill sergeant, so he is more than used to getting his way. And if he can’t have his way? Well, let’s just say that’s never happened before… At least not until Cora Maldonado walks into his life, demanding he fall in line, or she’ll find a way to make his life hell. He finds out fast that Cora marches to the beat of her own drum, and a lot of times that drum takes her farther away rather than closer to where he feels she needs to be. He can’t stand it. He wants her, and he has to have her. It doesn’t matter what she’s twenty years younger than him, and has a father that would rather see him dead than have his baby girl anywhere near him. Nor does it matter that his ex-wife is highly offended that she’s been replaced with a much younger woman. Despite the odds stacking against them, he’ll fight for what he wants. His ex-wife, her father, and their age difference be damned.
Ain't Doin' It is the latest in the Simple Man Series and let me just say it is far from a simple story. We know Coke from previous books and we also know his ex wife and the problems she - well is. I was excited to see Coke get his story and find a woman who deserved him after the mess he'd been put through.
I loved Cora, she's feisty and strong, she knows what she wants and goes for it. She's close to her family - but also knows when she needs her distance from them. She was raised knowing how to take care of herself, but also knowing she was different than everyone else - she's got her own special quirks we'll say. Cora knows she's not like other people and it affects her in some ways and in others she doesn't think about it at all - I really liked how she was plain with her truths when she decided to give them.
Coke's been through a lot, marriage to a woman who wasn't easy in the slightest, problems with her and his daughter, he's not looking for anything at the moment other than raising his daughter and staying as far away from his ex as possible - that is until his new neighbor stumbles into his yard and he finds himself feeling things he hasn't. But there's an age difference and he feels he needs to stay away - at first.
Coke and Cora's story has many twists and turns, ups and downs, and of course that little edge of danger and suspense Vale is so good at weaving in. With pop-ins from previous characters - both those we like and those we don't so much care for, Ain't Doin' It brings us right back into the fold of Hostel and it's surrounding areas and into the special fold of Free again as well.
