Kinda Don’t Care
The Simple Man #1
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Release: April 5, 2018
Genre: Romantic suspense


She’s in a white dress that dances around her ankles, and her hair tumbles in a long sheet of curls down her back. A veil covers her beautiful eyes, and she smiles directly at him. Janie is everything Rafe’s ever imagined she would be on her wedding day.

Breathtaking. Gorgeous. Perfect.

The moment he sees her walking down the aisle towards him, he knows that she’s the one.

Then she passes him, making her way to the man she’s to marry.

A man that wasn’t him.
A man that he knows with one hundred percent certainty isn’t good enough for her.

It seems that her father isn’t the only one who’s having a hard time giving her away. Rafe only wishes he knew why.

Everything about Janie sparks protective instincts he doesn’t feel for anyone, not even his own fiancé.

What he feels for the bride, however, isn’t merely a simple attraction. He knows that 

something is there just beneath the surface…if only he could reach it.,

It has to be something huge, too, otherwise he wouldn’t be drinking whiskey straight from the flask in a church pew and wondering how many years he would do in prison if he shot the groom in front of about a hundred witnesses—half of those being cops.

He was good…but not that good.

A near-death experience cost Rafe almost six months of his memory, but right now he can’t help but feel like a huge mistake is being made on both of their parts. One that’s going to cost him everything.

Then she says I do.

my review ⭐⭐⭐ 
Raphael Luis is 41 years old and after a mission gone bad, he ends up with temporary amnesia.  He remembers nothing of the last 6 months.  That includes the time he spent getting to know Janie.  What he does remember is revenge.  He wants to settle a score with the doctor who purposefully delayed treatment from a previous injury to his leg and testicle.

Janie, who is almost 20 years younger than Raphael, has waited for what seems like forever to be with him.  She has tried many times to get his attention but due to her young age, he stayed clear.  It seems like fate is against them when Raphael forgets the time they spent together but, she is willing to wait.

When a woman who is unknown to Janie shows up and announces that she is Rafe’s fiancée and he does not refute it, she is crushed.  She comes to the conclusion that she must move on.  As time passes, she does and agrees to spend her life with someone who is not Rafe.

Will Rafe ever remember his time with Janie and stop her wedding before he loses her forever?

This is an entertaining read told in dual POV.  It is a May-December romance that is well written and that kept and held my attention.

I loved both characters.  Raphael is strong and honorable.  He has been through trial after trial in his life and has came out the stronger for it.  Janie is smart and is unafraid to go for what she wants-Rafe.

Although I enjoyed this engaging story, I feel like the author only scratched the surface of the relationship between Rafe and Janie.  In my opinion, their love story seemed to take 
second seat to everything else that was going on.

That being said, this is a fascinating read with a guaranteed HEA and no cheating.  This is the first book I read from this author and it will not be my last.
