Another sexy funny and emotional romance from my new favorite Lani Lynn
Vale. This girl can write. I am so addicted to these characters. I feel
like I know these people. Kettle was so full of life..energy. ..just so
freaking vibrant. I loved Adeline for him. Kettle was like a force of
nature with how he could be the calm of the storm then erupt like a
Volcano. Adeline was the perfect balance to his overwhelming electric
personality. I really adored these two. But more than that I loved the
way Lani built a family for ever character in this bunch of bikers,
firefighters and paramedics. There was a lot of suspense which kept me
guessing. Heart breaking secrets of the past.. I was devastated over
things that Kettle suffered through. A love so deep and strong rose
from the ashes of his heart to burn bright and forever.. Adeline gave
him back his hope. Lani.. I'm truly so happy to have found your amazing
Wonderful, fantastic, amazing..these are the adjectives that are floating around in my head. I loved every single solitary thing about this book. From the intense and captivating suspense, to the amazing and wonderfully refreshing love story. I was in a white knuckle grip of my kindle. I didn't want to stop reading and I was really sad when it ended. NOT because anything was missing but because ..I had to say goodbye to it. I am in love and I want more now.
Eden Butler really knows how to take my emotions on a mind boggling
adventure. From humor to anger and passion to wonder she brings
feelings to the surface so vividly that you can almost see them shimmer
in the air.
I would pick up my Kindle and lose myself in the
catastrophic whirlwind that was Donovan and Layla and get so frustrated
that I'd find myself wanting something to break. . to crush.. I wanted
to scream and don't remember ever wanting to throttle two characters
more than these two.
Eden surely you had to find yourself a little bit
of indigestion writing this.. hate - love story. But hold on for a
moment if you think I'm bashing anything. Because for every violent
thought I had. . there were 50 hopeful and eager thoughts to follow.
See that's what makes Eden so brilliant. To take my heart and invest in a
couple that seems like a train wreck.. and make me believe in them so
strongly that I couldn't give up. I felt this authors hope and her
redeeming love being poured into these explosive moments between two
stubborn people. . felt it so strongly that I had to.. craved. . the
outcome and knew somehow someway that the walls would come down and the
real and true emotions and dreams would save them.
family.. a place of love and forgiving souls.. flawed yet loyal.. is
where this cast of characters lived. I still feel like I'm there.. one
of them. That's the world Eden created. It might have been a rough ride
but the truly meaningful things in life aren't easy.
River if I could send an audience to your house to give
you a standing ovation.. I'd do it right now.
As a mother of 25 yrs.. and 3
boys total I applaud you wholeheartedly for approaching this sensitive and
emotional topic. You gave us honesty and realism. You didn't cover it up or
lower the facts to be more palatable or romantic. What you gave the reader was
the truth that even the beautiful things in life aren't always shining bright
and full of sweetness. No the truly meaningful gifts are the ones that leave
battle scars on our bodies our hearts and our minds.
From someone who was
living through post partum depression at age 16 and survived.. you did this
story justice in every way. Nix was so amazing and rough and even flawed but
real..Kadence was a warrior who fought her way back. I adored every moment even
when it hurt. One hundred percent beauty.. even in the pain. Bravo.
When I have tears
streaming down my face from emotions so deep that I can hardly put them into
words, I know then that I’ve found a story that has touched me deeply. When I
decided to give Lani Lynn Vale a chance and started this series it was because
I had read the reviews of book one and saw that this was what I called a “Nic”
proof book. There wouldn’t be any cheating or sex outside the hero/heroine. But
what I found was so much more. This book was layered with energy that vibrated
throughout. I am finding it hard to explain what I encountered in this amazing
love story. Yes I’ll confess it has my favorite thing, insta-love. No the
characters Sebastian and Baylee didn’t confess this love right away …it was
more like lust but they were drawn to each other like nothing I’ve ever read
before. I just loved though how this author took the time to bring these two
together in a slow burning build of passion. They became a real couple and this
story had so much more than their relationship going on. Baylee was a very
strong heroine and had a very high stress job as a paramedic and also was dealing with two health disorders. Adhd and a bleeding disorder. and I loved how
Lani brought so many details of Baylee’s job and these health issues into the storyline. It didn’t
detract from the romance, it was enhanced because it showed how they worked together
as a couple and how they had to overcome the obstacles that we all face in real
life. Real that’s the word I’ve been looking for. This book had real issues and
it had things that made this love story feel authentic. I loved Sebastian so
much. He was strong, loyal, protective and possessive. He didn’t mince words or
try to hide his feelings. He wasn't just the VP of the MC club, no he was a
firefighter who saved lives and worked hard. He just laid it out there. He wasn’t
one for flowery words but showed his feelings..his actions spoke for themselves.
His past as a Marine really spoke to my heart
being a mother to a US Marine myself. But when he took Baylee on a trip to visit
some special friends… my heart broke. I learned something I feel ashamed to say
I never knew before. Visiting the cemetery of lost heroes.. there’s a
tradition. Simple coins. But profound meaning.
Nickels meant that the deceased and
visitor to the grave attended boot camp together.
A dime meant that they served with the
person in some capacity.
And a quarter, like the one Sebastian had
just left, meant that they were with them when they’d died.
This part of the
story just had me in tears and feeling so thankful for men like my son but also
for the families and the loved ones left behind.
So Sebastian didn’t
always speak the romantic words..he was all about doing, showing and claiming. But his actions were LOVE and it was so
consuming how he loved Baylee. When this book had me gripping my kindle and
holding my breath till I was dizzy..and gasping..I knew then without a doubt I’ve
found an author that I have to have more of. I was totally enraptured and oh
Sebastian has really taken my heart.
With any MC
series there is going to be the brotherhood, the foundation of the club.
had so many interesting and intense characters that Lani took the time to make
me the reader want more..right now. I want Kettle’s story and I want Sterling’s
andTrance. I haven’t looked at the next
book but will be diving right in hoping it’s also safe for me. I was totally
consumed by this amazing story and this author now has one girl who will be watching
the name Lani Lynn Vale very carefully. Lani, I want perfect Alpha’s like
Sebastian. Loyal, true and possessive. Write girl write.
OH …one last
thing. From a girl born and raised in Louisiana, I really really loved the setting
of this book being partly in my state.
Any body who
loves a good loyal hero, sexy romance with suspense, passion and intrigue..along with an
authentic reality type plot. Give this one a go..you’ll be pleasantly
I completely am head over heals for this
entire cast of passionate characters. Cohen was amazing and his Dani-girl was
the perfect balance of fire and softness for his inherited alpha male
personality. This beautiful love story had everything that I love. A loyal but
sometimes humanly flawed couple who had so many obstacles against them. But for
every wall they encountered.. there was this undeniable passion and intense
connection that pushed them over around or crashing through those walls.
souls.. connected by a history. and by destiny.. years in the making. This
brought us to a breathtaking love and sheer beauty. I'm a forever fan of this book and
the series that started it all.
Lauren Blakely is
a true romantic and her stories are deeply rooted with everything that spells Love
Story. From interesting characters and suspenseful plots, she simply catches my
attention with every word on the page. I usually read only heroes of the Alpha
male variety. But Lauren is my go to girl now for sweet romantic and sexy
William was adorable and hot. When he spoke I had to pay
attention because everything he said truly was full of heart felt meaning. From
the way he never once tried to fight his feelings for Jess knowing their time
could be limited. . just solidified my intense like of this guy. The banter
cracked me up so many times and the passion was just so lovely. Low on the angst and unrealistic drama this was just a feel good and simply put beautiful romance. A story of young love. .
that turned into forever love layered in hope, faith and beauty throughout. Pure romance is exactly what you find whether Lauren is writing about bossy alpha males or sweet and sexy adorable heroes. Just perfect every time.
