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.

“In true Lani Lynn Vale fashion, this plays like a movie, that has you going through all the feels. Super hot sexy times, major drama, and the perfect amount of danger to make things interesting but not over the top.” - MJ’s Book Blog and Reviews “Son of a Beard is one WILD, ACTION-PACKED RIDE!” - Dani Hodge “If you love a hot bladesmith, MC biker, former SEAL, with killer tattoos and a beard, with a strong and confident woman by his side when he allows, Then go and read this book. You won’t be sorry.” - Alpha Book Club

Bearded bliss….
It’s a new story in the DWRM series and I pounced on it like a kitten on milk! Like cheese on broccoli! Like Archie on Veronica (or Betty). No, no – this isn’t a ménage, but it is serious book crack and I’m completely, happily, deliriously addicted!
Verity and Truth find themselves with two things in common and they both start with ex-. With family making things a lot more complicated than they should be, they’re still determined to survive their forced attendance at a wedding (that there isn’t enough alcohol to get through). Despite that, they not only survive but manage to laugh through it with ‘in your force’ attitude and hilarious moments that lead to … a possible future together? The drama is real and so is the out of control warmth and emotion that they bring to this “read in one sitting” romance.
“I wasn’t normally so slutty, but hell, if you saw this man, you’d have jumped at the chance to do him, too!”
This series does not shy away from harsh realities and the brutality and unfairness of life. This outing is no exception but Verity and Truth balance unbearable sadness with their down-to-earth approach to impossible situations. Every blow is met with a matching punch as Truth is deliciously protective and fierce while Verity counters with kick-ass attitude and a ferociousness of her own. Together they, along with Truth’s beard, ride the storms while the sexy-o-meter blows sky high.
And a big part of that meter is judged by the beard. Verity talks to the beard. Like it’s real! Strokes and fondles it reverently and with a gentleness that shows how much she cares for it. And that’s just the beard! Whew… For a woman who (quite honestly) is not that drawn to them, the way Verity treats Truth’s beard has me rethinking my entire stance on beards in general. Reading does change a person, doesn’t it? I just hope this author doesn’t start waxing poetic about the man bun though. Not sure what I’ll be able to do with that…
“I don’t understand your specific brand of crazy, but I do commend your devotion to it.”
Funny, emotional and always, always, full up on drama with all the feels, this series is aging with perfection. I never thought a bike seat – a bike seat – would make me misty but this author managed it!
Five “beards really do rock” stars!
