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.
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas or does it? That pesky little marriage certificate tends to make that to be impossible. But what if you don’t remember that you got married and went your separate ways? Interesting isn’t it?
I don’t think I will ever get sick of the bikers Lani Lynn Vale gives us. They are all badass, sexy as hell, have that edge of being an asshole but deep down really isn’t. Truth is no different. He is a blade smith, okay just picturing this sexy bearded man forming a sword, something that takes strength and something I wouldn’t mind sitting back and watching a sexy man doing. Truth is broken in ways some may never fully know. His past has darkness to it; he made me cry over his pain and his loss.
Verity has suffered as well. I wanted to throat punch not just her cheating ex-fiancé but even her mother as well. Verity’s personality meshed well with Truth’s, he needed someone like her, he needed that stubborn sassy type of woman that Verity showed herself to be, I applaud her that she just didn’t stand back and take it when Truth tried to push her away.
While I feel there were some issues that were swept under the rug and a few plot holes left open I really had no complaints. Son Of A Beard was another book from Ms. Vale that I absolutely loved. You can’t help but laugh, fall in love, want to slap the guys at times and cheer on the women when you read these books. Son Of A Beard is another must read!
I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
