#ARCReview Somethin’ About That Boy by Lani Lynn Vale

Title: Somethin’ About That Boy

Series: Standalone

Author: Lani Lynn Vale

Genres: NA High School Romance

Release Date: 23 June 2020


Banner Spurlock knew the moment that he walked into Kilgore High School and saw Perry Street that life was about to get interesting.

Forced to move due to a problem at home, a problem in the form of his ex-best friend hating him for something that Banner’s father did, Banner doesn’t think very much could improve in his life.

He left his status as king of Benton High School behind and moved to a new school where not only would he have to try out for a new football team and prove himself, but he’d also have to find a place for himself in the hierarchy.

Only, the moment that he arrives, he knows that finding a place for himself won’t be too hard. Especially when his reputation follows him all the way to Kilgore, Texas.


Perry Street hates school. She hates her peers—most of them anyway—and she hates her classes. All she wants to do is finish her senior year, graduate, and find a place that will give her a full scholarship so that she doesn’t have to be stuck here forever.

That’s her goal, anyway.

Then she walks into first period, on her first day of her senior year, and sits down. Seconds later, he walks in and changes every single plan she’s ever made.

It isn’t long before Perry starts to fall for the bad boy who doesn’t care who he does and doesn’t impress. The boy makes her heart flutter. The boy makes her want things that she’s never wanted before. Not ever.

The boy brings trouble with him that nearly kills her.

Another book from Lani Lynn Vale! This one is a high school romance. Even though this is a standalone, I felt like I was missing things, since there are some characters from other books returning. With that been said, I really enjoyed the story and I’m actually curious about the other characters’ books.

Banner finds himself transferring schools because of a situation with his ex-best friend, Vance. He has been harassing him constantly because of an incident between their fathers. That’s how in his senior year he enrolls Kilgore High School. He doesn’t know it yet, but this move will be the best thing for him.

Perry always kept away from the mean crowd. She might be an athlete but has zero tolerance for the mean cheerleads and she made that known from the start. She’s trying to keep to herself and go through her last year of high school. What she didn’t anticipate was the new senior, Banner.

There is attraction between them from the start. Even though none of them was looking for a relationship, their chemistry is too much to ignore. I loved both their families, especially Perry’s dad! The story has everything: bullies, mean girls, drama, and lots of sports!
