How About No (Bear Bottom Guardians MC, #3) by Lani Lynn Vale
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 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 two 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 has 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 officer 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 that 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.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Once again, LLV has put out a story that brings out all kinds of emotions. I was all over the place. One minute, I was sad, the next I was unbelievably angry, and then I had the warm fuzzies! It was fabulous! (I love a story that really gets my emotions going. So far, the Bear Bottom Guardians MC has really gone above and beyond, in that aspect!)
Wade is a police officer in Bear Bottom, a member of the BBGMC, and is still in love with his ex-wife. He isn’t really sure why she’s his ex, but knows that he screwed up, big time! So, he bides his time, waiting for his chance.
Landry is a woman who had a childhood that was beyond horrible. After escaping from a family who only viewed her as a means to an end, she thought she had finally found her HEA. Until her HEA wasn’t so happy. Tired of never being put first, she takes things in her own hands and moves on with her life. And then things change again!
I love a good second chance at happiness, and this one was among the most interesting that I’ve read. I never in a million years could have seen this coming! Totally shocked to my core! There were so many twists and turns, surprises that came completely out of the blue. I loved Landry and Wade, and their story is one that I won’t soon forget! (And I totally LOL’d when I realized who Wade is, but that is a surprise that I’m not giving away!)
