Coke 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 it 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 that 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.

 






I really do love this series and the previous three books all rated really well for me….. unfortunately, Ain’t Doin’ It just didn’t hit the mark for me.. A couple of obvious things knocked it down to a 3.5* rating for me – the blurb of the book gives Coke as being twenty years older than Cora, when he is actually only ten years older (even thought he says, more than once, that he’s old!!).. There seemed to be a little timescale/continuity issue when we got to the epilogue and I felt, especially towards the end of the read, that there was too much going on and it was all happening so fast!!

I liked both Coke and Core, his daughter Frankie was likable, Janie and Kayla kinda bugged me a little in this book – they kinda felt more like teenagers than women with responsibilites for a portion of the story…. The ex-wife was cray cray with a capital C and things around her seemed more than a little mental – and I don’t just mean her character… there were things being thrown up one after the other and accusations and claims made that had me wondering how they hell anyone could have missed what was happening in front of them….

It was an okay read and I got through the book as quickly as I usually do with a read from Lani Lynn Vale and while not my favourite of the series so far, I’ll definitely be picking up the next instalment in the Simple Man books.

  1. I agree with the Kayla and Janie comment. They aggravated me in this book some.
