Review: Get Bucked by Lani Lynn Vale

Release Date: April 21

Darby has always been ‘that’ guy.

The guy that no man, woman, or child wants around their loved one.

See, a long time ago he made some bad decisions. Those bad decisions have haunted him ever since. No matter what he does, people still see him as the town’s screw up. The boy that sold his soul to the Devil.

Years later, he’s turned himself around. Made amends and ultimately turned into a generally good guy. Only, it’s hard to act like a good guy when people still treat you like the old you, and not the new you.

Enter Waylynn Jennings.

Waylynn has watched Darby Valentine from afar for a very long time.

She’s witnessed the changes in him and knows the only reason he’s so mean is to protect the man that lies within. A battered, injured soul that deserves more than what he’s received. Even his own family takes him for granted.

She’s made it her new mission in life to prove to everyone that Darby isn’t the bad guy. That he’s a kind-hearted, sweet soul that’s just looking for a place to fit in.

Only, Darby is fairly sure that Waylynn is out to kill him, not help him. How else do you explain all the fights he’s having to break up on her behalf, or all the times he has to come to her rescue when she’s managed to put her cute little butt right in the middle of something where it shouldn’t be?

There’s obviously only one solution. He has to make her his. Then everyone will know not to mess with her. 

Darby Valentine protects what’s his. 

No matter what the cost.

Get Bucked is Darby's book, and I couldn't wait to see how he got his HEA.  Of all the Valentine boys, I was most curious to see how he'd be redeemed in his family's eyes and I can say that I was really focused on seeing that play out. 

Darby was the youngest, the most troublesome, but he's grown up and worked hard to change himself for the better. Too bad not everyone in his life can see that and appreciate the work he's put in. 

I really enjoyed Darby and Waylynn's history and their mutual love/hate of each other.  It was really fun to see them interacting and watch their hidden feelings come to the forefront. Watching Darby and Waylynn both realize their worth to each other was really sweet.  

I really enjoyed how the Valentine family came together in this book, and how they've grown together from one book to the next, it's really added an extra touch to each story and the relationships between not only these siblings, but the people they've brought into the family. 

Darby and Waylynn had a unique connection, one that grew through the pages and reeled me in.
