Evander Lennox doesn’t do anything he doesn’t want to do. At least, that is, until he’s sent to prison. The four years he’s incarcerated, he’s had no choice but to do the things that he’s asked to do, when he’s asked to do them. And now, if he doesn’t, it will mean a one-way ticket straight back to hell.
Once he’s free, it takes him twenty-four hours to get his old job back, his dog at home where he belongs, and an understanding that people aren’t as forgiving as he once thought them to be. He’s just about given up hope of ever integrating back into society when a woman slams into his heart, literally and figuratively.  *** Kennedy Swallow just wants to belong somewhere. When she was younger, her parents divorced, and chose to separate her from her twin. Fast forward fifteen years, and she’s finally getting to meet the family she’s always wanted to be a part of. To make that happen, she uproots her life and moves to the tiny town of Hostel, Texas—giving her almost everything she’s ever wanted. Just when she thinks she’s making progress in winning her family over, she finds out that her twin is ill, and the only reason her family tolerates her is due to the convenience of having a free caretaker whenever they might be in need of one. After a few eye-opening experiences, she quickly realizes that she’s being used. Vowing to herself that she’ll make the best of the situation, she begins to steel her heart. What she doesn’t prepare for is a man named Evander who sees that barrier as a challenge. *** It takes Evander all of ten seconds while watching the woman on the floor, bleeding from her jaw, to realize that maybe life isn’t as bad as it could be. This woman with her thrill for life, a crazy obsession with chickens, and a desire to be wanted, changes everything he thinks he knows. But it doesn’t take long for him to realize that just by being around her, the people of the town have judged her guilty by association. Her business suffers, and soon after, she realizes what it will mean to have him by her side—the loss of everything she’s worked so hard for. Kennedy knows that Evander is worth it. Evander, however, decides that he’s not letting another person get hurt because he was stupid enough to care.

Evander and Kennedy

Ms Vale does it again.I have to say that this is a fairly new author to me that I started reading this past year and we started with her MC series that we absolutely love and we enjoyed her current Romantic Suspense just as much.


We really loved the story from cover to cover.The story had so much going on that it just kept you turning the pages to the very end.This was just such a sweet romance read with a great cast of leading characters from the onset of the story and I have to say that I loved them both.


I love it when you connect with the characters that you read about and Kennedy and Evander made it very easy to do just that.I loved when that happens because when that happens I know I am going to love the story to come and I did just that.


I always pick a favorite character in the story I am currently reading and I have to say I was just a little bit in love with Evander so I picked him.

What an awesome guy he was sweet ,kind ,patient, protective,generous,sexy and an amazing caring lover.I loved his interactions with Kennedy they were super sweet and how they were together as a couple and their sex together was super hot.An alpha for sure but kept himself in check.My heart broke a little bit for all the betrayals he endured like him going to jail for a crime he did not commit and have a brother who took part in his downfall.My heart broke for him and the shitty family he had and how they treated him yet he never gave up on them even knowing he should have.

Kennedy was a lover,spitfire,one who defies convention,sweet ,kind and and all around super sweet gal.My heart broke for her as well as her family treated her horrible to and I think for that reason it was easy to form a bond with Evander as they already has so much in common.


My favorite scenes in the story for me were the scene in the grocery store and her digging that  hole in her backyard.One scene showed just how protective she was of her man and how she had know problem standing up for the man she loved and the other was just showed you how much she loved him and the lengths she went to in order to lessen the pain he was feeling.


A great read with tons of twists and turns and betrayals but , also about how an unlikely pair of lovers who found solace in one another and one who was willing to see into the heart of her man and believe him when others thought him to be nothing but a criminal and ex con.When Kennedy sat down in that diner across from Evander even after he warned her away saying he was a bad bet had me cheering and saying go girl ! This sweet and quiet girl had fire in her!What a surprise and I liked it !


A recommended read to all!


5 stars from us

Release Blitz for Son of a Beard by Lani Lynn Vale
 
 
 
Title: Son of a Beard
Series: The Dixie Wardens Rejects MC #3
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: April 27, 2017 Photographer: Golden at FuriousFotog Cover Model: Tank Joey
 
 
 
 
Truth Alan Reacher was a biker. He was a bladesmith. What he was not, was a fool. The moment he walked in on his girl screwing his cousin on his bike, he does the only thing he can do. He ditches the bike seat—and the girl—riding right out of her life without a backwards glance. That is until he’s forced to attend the marriage of his cousin to his cheating ex-girlfriend. The only bright spot of the entire thing was watching some chick go off on the groom—the groom’s ex-fiancé—right in the middle of the bouquet toss. *** Verity Ruthann Cassidy was supposed to be here today attending this wedding as the bride, not watching the festivities as a guest from the chairs she’d painstakingly purchased covers for while her fiancé—now her ex-fiancé—screwed around on her with another woman. The icing on the wedding cake that she refuses to eat? She’s forced to attend the wedding due to her mother being the wedding planner. However, the night doesn’t turn out quite the way she expects it due to the hot-as-hell biker sitting in the chair directly beside her. The man gave one hell of a speech during the reception that sounded like something that could have come straight out of her own mouth, and she enjoyed every single second of it. *** Thrown together under similarly lousy circumstances, the two newly single jilted former lovers of the happy couple decide to go to Vegas on what was to be Verity’s honeymoon trip. One thing leads to another, and the next thing they know, their night has gone from a celebration of being single to a marriage—to each other. Verity and Truth now have to figure out if everything that happens in Vegas should stay in Vegas.

Kevlar To My Vest (The Heroes of The Dixie Wardens MC, #3) by Lani Lynn Vale Review
Kevlar To My Vest (The Heroes of The Dixie Wardens MC) (Volume 3) - Lani Lynn Vale

You’re the Kevlar…

Behind the badge and the pretty face was a heart. A heart that bled just like the rest. A heart that was so in love with Viddy Sheffield that it was humiliating. Trance had been burned before by a woman that couldn’t handle the fact that he risked his life each and every time he went on shift. She was too vulnerable; somehow he had to convince his heart to let her go. His life would chew her up and spit her out.

To My…

Viddy couldn’t get the man out of her head. Just the thought of Trance put a smile on her face. And when he walked into the same room? Words couldn’t explain. God help her, but she was even in a relationship with another man. She shouldn’t be thinking about the sexy biker with the voice that made shivers dance down her spine.

Vest…

Then the unthinkable happens, and the sexy cop she can’t stop thinking about is there for her, giving her what she never knew she needed. One moment in time, and she finds herself falling for the man, lock, stock, and barrel. The two of them have a lot of work to do to make this relationship succeed. What they didn't know, however, was that there were people behind the scenes that were working to keep them apart. Sometimes the saying is true. You can’t always have what you want.

 

 

 

Review

 

There is lots to like about this book: the dogs, the sisters bickering, the hero.

The romance felt so good as a secondary romance in the last book in the series.

 

But Viddy does a lot of things it is hard for me to swallow for such a bright woman. The book doesn't give me enough time to reconcile those things.

 

Oh spoiler. Viddy changes in a way that I think is a cop out even though it takes place mainly in the epilogue.

 

So, I was disappointed.

Keys To My Cuffs (The Heroes of The Dixie Wardens MC, #4) by Lani Lynn Vale Review
Keys To My Cuffs (The Heroes of The Dixie Wardens MC) (Volume 4) - Lani Lynn Vale

You’re the Keys

Loki’s life was a lie. Everything he’d done for the last eight years was under an assumed name for the Benton Police Department. He’d lied, cheated, and stolen all in the name of the law. He wore himself thin, and not even the open road could take away the pain anymore. Then his little next door neighbor moved in, and suddenly he had a reason to get out of bed every morning. Except he was an officer of the law, and a member of a prominent motorcycle club in the area, The Dixie Wardens MC. Neither of which she could deal with.

To My

It wasn’t the scars that covered her new neighbor’s body that scared Channing. It was the badge. The fact that he belonged to The Dixie Wardens MC was only icing on the cake. She should be running away as fast as her legs could carry her. But there’s something about Bryce ‘Loki’ Rector. Something that eased the unreasonable fear she felt every time she came into contact with something that reminded her of her past.

Cuffs

They say love isn’t easy, and it definitely isn’t for the two of them. Loki has to learn to feel again, and Channing has to learn to live. Their road isn’t an easy one by any means, but Loki makes two promises. One, he’ll never let anything hurt Channing again. Two, it’d be over his dead body that he’d ever let her go.

 

 

Review

 

This is the lighter side of the motorcycle club sub genre with the bikers all being civil servants.

 

There is good humor here and the epilogue is particularly funny but I never settled into this book.

 

The hero and heroine are hurting and they hurt each other. I never see the kind of safe place I long for them both so the romance doesn't end up working for me.
