Zee + Annmarie and Tan + Jubilee.
Forever. No exceptions.
They were to have the picture-perfect life together. Everything was all planned out.
Jubilee was to marry Eitan and Ezekiel was to marry Annmarie. That’s how it was always supposed to be from the moment that they met. Textbook, right?
Eitan and Annmarie die in a freak accident that never should have happened, leaving the two survivors reeling.
Sixteen years later, Jubilee and Zee can’t even be in the same room with each other before things begin to deteriorate. Too many memories. Too much pain. Not enough forgiveness.
They’re like hellfire and holy water, and neither one of them is willing to admit that they’re wrong.
Then one day things change, and all of a sudden, they’re looking at each other like maybe they aren’t each other’s enemies after all.

One of the main things I have always respected and appreciated about Lani Lynn Vale’s books is her inane ability to weave them altogether, even if by the thinnest string. Living within the pages of her carefully woven stories is like being blessed with an epilogue that never ends. You find yourself clinging to side characters, waiting for the day when they’ll get their own story. It’s like being engulfed in the huge comforting hug of a beloved family member or friend. That being said, for the most part these characters are new to us. Jubilee completely and Zee through slight mention in the other Bear Bottom MC books only. I believe his father may have been mentioned in some of LLV’s early series, but as we’ve never had a series for the Arkansas Chapter of the Dixie Wardens, it was MC mention only. So I went into this story eyes wide open, anticipating what was to come.
There isn’t much more I love that a good love-hate story and It Happens had it in spades. I love when the characters fight and hurt each other because on that inevitable day they stop fighting their feelings, it makes the fall that much sweeter. This tale definitely didn’t disappoint. As explosive and snarky as their words were to each other, so was their love making. You couldn’t be within five feet of these two and not see the chemistry; it was that undeniable and unavoidable. I loved the history between them and kind of wish it had been explored more. There were some glimpses into their younger years, but I’m greedy like that. I enjoyed the moments between them where you could see the underlying friendship once you looked past the assumed hate. Their banter kept me in stitches and furiously flipping the pages wanting more.
As this was part of a series, we also got to see some of the other members and catch up, though not as much as I wold have liked. That being said, I understand why it was done that way as the two we got to know more were Castiel and Liner, who’s books are next up in the series. I just would have like to see more interaction between the club as a whole. I always leave LLV books wishing for more, but that’s just because I am so involved in the stories that I don’t ever want them to end. I love how they make me feel as if I am a supporting character, watching from the sidelines. And because of this, I keep coming back for more and always will. If you are a fan of LLV, this is definitely one you won’t want to miss!
When Rome Pierce moved to Bear Bottom, Texas, it was his intention to lay low. To not be seen. To find a way to heal his body and soul—as well as his son’s.
Nobody would know by looking at him that he used to play professional football. Not with the Bare Bottom MC cut covering his back, and definitely not with his friendly smile completely obliterated.
No longer is there charm in each smooth word that comes out of his mouth. What’s left is an angry, bitter, scared man that’s terrified one day he’s going to wake up and his entire world is going to be gone. Nobody knows what drove him to leave the game he loved—nobody but her.
She’s the one person that has helped him make it through the dark days and even darker nights. She’s the bright and shining star in his pitch-black sky.
And he doesn’t even know her name.
He should be afraid that she knows things that not anyone—not even his best friend—knows.
Yet, with each encounter, he gives what little bit of his soul remains, and before he knows it only two people on this earth—one dying, and one too afraid to live—make his life worth living.
Until one day he has to choose—the love of his life, or the life he brought into this world.
Two impossible situations.
One decision that would change him forever.
Linc has two very important things on his mind—professional football and his motorcycle club.
What he does not have on his mind is the woman that drives him crazy and makes him want to do stupid things, like throw caution to the wind.
Nope, not Linc.
At least, that’s the lie he tells everyone.
In reality, every time Conleigh’s name is mentioned, he squirms. She’s everything that he wants, wrapped up in a cute little package that is stamped ‘hands freakin’ off.’
She’s four years younger than him, in school to be a doctor, and thinks football is stupid.
Even more, Linc and Conleigh get along like oil and water.
There’s not a single second that they’re in each other’s presence that they’re not at each other’s throats.
But all it takes is hearing that she’s in trouble for Linc to drop every single thing—football and MC duties alike—and head to her side.
A side that he’ll remain at until they either kill each other, or finally give into the heat between them.
Either way you look at it, he’s well and truly screwed.
Wade had everything he could ever want in life…then he lost it.
Now, his life—his forever girl—is living in a house he built for her while he’s struggling to move on and find meaning where there isn’t any to be found.
Landry Hill was his girl. his everything. His high school sweetheart. His first kiss. His first and only love. His old lady and wife
Then one day he does something monumentally stupid. And she walks away knowing she’ll never come back.
Fast forward five years, and he’s still just as in love with her now as he was when she left. The only problem is that she’s moved on with her life, found a new man, and seemingly forgotten him. Then there’s Wade—stuck in the same awful place where she abandoned him. The only thing he has left is his job as a police office and the Bear Bottom MC.
Just when they both think things can’t get any worse, life kicks them both in the teeth, and Landry finds out really quick that the only person she can depend on is the one that let her walk away.
With understanding comes a deal. One that Landry has no hope of ever breaking free from, and one Wade will do everything in his power to make a reality.
But one thing is still certain. The force that split them apart is still out there. And there’s no hope of escaping fate.
Hoax knows two things very well.
One, he’s not relationship material. Two, the nurse that treats him for erectile dysfunction is the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen, and practically has ‘the marrying type’ stamped on her forehead.
Does that stop him from wanting her?
Unfortunately, he learned a long time ago that Army Delta Force and long-lasting relationships don’t go hand in hand.
But beautiful hazel eyes, curly blonde hair, and the prettiest lips he’s ever seen play havoc with his resolve, making him forget his earlier convictions.
All it takes is one teeny, tiny kiss for every shred of control he has to disappear, along with the problem in his pants.
Soon he finds himself doing things that he knows that he shouldn’t. He doesn’t know that he’s found the woman that’s meant to be his. Nor does he realize that her father is the man he’s idolized from the moment he joined the army at the age of eighteen. Because, maybe if he had, he would’ve tried a little harder to ignore the pull he felt between them instead of making her his the night before he deployed for six months.
He also might’ve tried a little harder not to knock her up.
