It was the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring…nope. No. Nuh-uh. That’s a lie.
The moment that Caro wakes up, she knows that she’s not alone.
One thump-thump from the living room and she quickly moves into action.
One 9-1-1 call later, and she’s ready to defend herself.
Only, she gets more than she bargains for when she steps out into her living room and comes face to face with a living, breathing nightmare.
And isn’t it just fitting that the man that saves her by coming down the chimney with a large black gun in his hand is named Saint Nicholas?
It seemed like the start of a bad joke.
Saint Nicholas comes down the chimney on Christmas Eve night, but he isn’t there to bear gifts. He’s there to take out the trash.
When he lands on his silent feet, he has no other choice but to put himself in harm’s way.
One look at Caro’s terrified face, and he can’t stop himself.
He steps in just as the bullets start flying, saving the damsel in distress and taking a bullet to the shoulder for his trouble.
But one thing he can say is, heroes always win the girl.
And Caro is the best Christmas miracle of all.

Depends On Who’s Asking is the last book in the SWAT 2.0 series and I don’t think words can express how sad I am that it has come to an end. I have looked forward to getting a new book each month and reading about all the chaos the gang goes thru but I can honestly say, this book does an amazing job of wrapping it up and bringing everything full circle.
The final book in the series features Saint and Caroline and I love how the author twisted the current state of events in real life and threw it into this book in such a funny and unique way. You see, Saint and Caroline are thrown into a sticky situation when the two wind up in quarantine together. And stuck alone in a hotel room with someone you were already insanely attracted to just makes the spark that much hotter and harder to ignore. Saint and Caroline get hot and heavy and when quarantine is over, they decide to make a go at having a relationship with one another. That all changes pretty quickly given that Saint has been hiding a secret and when his past and his present collide, he believes he’s doing the honorable thing by breaking it off with Caroline. But he soon realizes that he can’t run from the one he wants and she’s not about to back down and let him hide.
Every page of this book, from beginning to end, is pure gold. The interaction and the chemistry between these two fairly leaps from the pages. The plot is wacky and out there and it works so well. I was so entertained. Saint’s back story is finally revealed and it is a wild ride. And I adore that the book has a holiday feel and we get to see all the couples together. There is a scene with them doing a White Elephant gift exchange and I was in tears of laughter from the whole scene. Honestly, Lani did an unbelievable job of ending the series and giving all of the couples some memorable HEA’s. When you finish reading a book, and you’ve got a silly grin on your face because of how much you loved the story. I can not wait to see what the author has in store for us next.
