Add to your TBR:




Priscilla Story, the self-proclaimed “wild child” of the straight-laced Story clan, has always had a knack for getting herself trouble. Except this time, her “growing problem” is going to require a Daddy sooner than later…or she can kiss her inheritance good-bye.

Shane Olson, who previously dated Priscilla’s sister, Margaret, isn’t opposed to a marriage of convenience for the sake of furthering his business interests, but Priscilla – with her wild ways – is just about the last woman he’d choose to marry. In order to make the marriage look convincing, they end up having to spend more time together than they’d originally planned. When rolling stone, Priscilla, who lives by the seat of her muu-muu, and seriously-ambitious Shane, who’s had his whole life planned since he was eleven, start falling for each other, it’s going to take a whole lot of compromise for this Bohemian and her Businessman to find their happily ever after.


I have been so hooked on Katy Regnery’s books that each time a new one comes out, I can’t wait to get my hands on it!  This book is the beginning of the Story sisters who we met in the previous books in The Blueberry Lane series. 

We all know from the beginning that the families are wealthy and can have anyone and anything their heart desires.  But, unfortunately for Priscilla Story, she cannot seem to make her father happy.  Priscilla is a free spirit and moves from place to place, never settling down.  Her father doesn’t understand her at all and wants his daughters to take over the family business.  I must say I didn’t like this man from the beginning because he only wanted what his daughters could do for him; he didn’t have a true relationship with them.  After finding herself broken hearted and pregnant, she returns home to make a life and finds out she cannot get to her trust fund as she had planned.

Shane Olson works for Priscilla’s dad and wants to move ahead in the business.  Unfortunately for him, the only way he can is to marry a Story sister.  After trying to date and fall in love with Margaret, Priscilla’s sister, neither of them feel the sparks between them.  After finding out Shane is wanting to climb her father’s corporate ladder and she happens to need to be married a year before she can get to her millions, she offers Shane the chance of a lifetime.  He can move up and she can get to her money if they can be married for a year.  It didn’t seem to be too much begging on Priscilla’s part because Shane has always noticed Priscilla, but knew they were complete opposites.

Well as they say, opposites attract because once they get together, it’s magic between them.  They start out slow and get to know each other, but in working up to more, they find a beautiful relationship.  Shane begins to see her father’s true colors and starts to second guess his goals and that’s one thing that pulled me into his character.  He finds out money doesn’t make you happy, but love does.  Priscilla is just what Shane needs to loosen that necktie and relax a little.

As with Katy’s books, they are beautifully written and she gives you just a hint at the other sisters so you can’t help but look forward to their books and see their secrets they are hiding.  Katy’s writing is precise and so easy to understand and after reading this 5 star book, I cannot wait to get more of the Story sisters.

Release Day Blitz and Review - SON OF A BEARD by Lani Lynn Vale

Title: Son of a Beard
Series: The Dixie Wardens Rejects MC #3
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: April 27, 2017
Photographer: Golden at FuriousFotog
Cover Model: Tank Joey

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

Son of the Beard is book three in the Dixie Wardens Rejects MC Series and I am so pulled into these guys and this MC.  It’s not a must to read each book, but I do feel it’s necessary to understand the characters and fall in love with these bikers.

Poor Truth and Verity are brought together through some unusual circumstances.  They have both been cheated on by the other’s ex.  What a tangled web that was!  But, at their exes’ wedding, they both show that they won’t be walked on and from then on, the sparks fly between them.

Deciding to still go on her honeymoon in Vegas, she had no idea that one night with Truth she would end up married to him and I loved that!  There were some humorous scenes and even though I wouldn’t call it a comedy, it was so fun to read!

As with all of Lani Lynn’s books that I have read, I think the quotes before each chapter are so good!  Some are humorous and some will make you ask ‘what the hell’ but it’s one of my favorite things about her books because that makes them so different.

With Truth and Verity falling for each other, along with some action and danger from the club, this book is one of my favorites of the series.  It was right up my alley with how they met because it couldn’t have been more perfect.  They were each let down by their ex, but found a beautiful relationship with each other.  They make a perfect pair and I couldn’t have asked for anything better in their story in this 4 star book.


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.
