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
When both the hero and heroine have names that align with honesty and certainty having to deal with cheating exes and then a whole slew of underhanded situations that are out of their control puts a lot of pressure on a couple who don’t really know each other that well and are figuring things out as they go, which, for a biker and his woman mean quite different things.
Truth Alan Reacher is the quintessential bearded biker – one who speaks his mind and defends those he loves – so the circumstances he’s faced with when Son of a Beard begins and then the unfortunate events that occur due to his dark and dangerous past plague Truth with a heavy dose of guilt, quite a bit of anger, and even a modicum of fear, and that combination is not one his enemies want to deal with because when it comes down do it, he’s going to do whatever it takes to rectify what his past choices have cost him.
Verity Ruthann Cassidy thought she had it all until she was faced with a series of harsh truths that send her spiraling, but thankfully, she finds herself in a far better situation than the one she was forced to leave, and even though Verity and Truth’s relationship has its ups and downs, in the end, I’m sure Verity wouldn’t trade what she had to endure to end up with the man she does.
I have to admit that one thing that bothers me about these bearded bikers is that in their need to protect their women, they say and do things that make their better half go crazy with worry and feel hurt by what their men see as doing “what is best” for the situation. Don’t get me wrong, I can’t begin to understand the male psyche, especially when it comes to protecting those they love, but I don’t think I would handle being ignored and then jump right back into bed with a possessive and ornery biker.
The biker brotherhood is always at the forefront of Lani Lynn Vale’s biker books and the way Truth’s brothers have his back and do what needs to be done to help him, even if it pisses Truth off, speaks to the reason Truth found is footing again with the Dixie Wardens when his life almost imploded by events that were out of his control but threatened to destroy him nonetheless.
