You murder a man, and all of a sudden people are scared of you.
Slate Solis went from being a guy that people went to in times of need to an ex-con that people crossed the street to avoid being too close to.
He knows he’s done wrong, but out of all of his sins, only one really bothers him—coveting thy neighbor’s wife.
Harleigh Belle—the cute little lady that never gives him a second glance.
After seeing her for the first time while he was in prison, she’s stayed on his mind for three long years. Each time she comes in to visit with her friend on family day, he can’t help but stare.
Then the day comes that he’s set free, and he’s almost disappointed that he’ll never see her again.
Except fate has different plans.
He hasn’t been back in his house for more than three hours when he sees her.
Harleigh Belle in all her glory…oh, and her husband that is everything Slate isn’t.
He tells himself that her being fifty feet away from him, all day every day, is a complete coincidence.
One that he shouldn’t take advantage of. The more time passes, the harder it gets to stay away. Until one day, and one very ill-timed thunderstorm, ruin everything.
Who knew that baby-making-weather was a real thing?
I know I am beginning to sound like a broken record when it comes to books by Lani Lynn Vale, but I honestly just can’t help it because I absolutely love her books and F-Bomb was another amazing book in this amazing series. I have wanted Slate’s story ever since we had been introduced to him as a secondary character in numerous books. Let me tell you it was worth the wait; hands down Ms. Vale nailed his story.
Harleigh and Slate at times are like oil and water, they just don’t mix. It took me a bit to warm up to Harleigh’s character but once I did, I loved the sarcastic woman as she reminded me of myself at times. The banter and chemistry between Slate and Harleigh is something unmeasurable, but I a sense is almost like foreplay between them. Slate just wants to move forward, he has been in prison and wants to be free, he has no remorse for what he did but the reason behind it, when you find out certain truths, made me so pissed, not at Slate but at his ex.
F-Bomb is another book that I highly recommend be on your TBR lists. Fans of this series will, in my opinion, love F-Bomb, I know this book whore sure did!
