BOOK REVIEW: Not a Role Model by Lani Lynn Vale #contemporaryromance #LaniLynnVale

NOT A ROLE MODEL by Lani Lynn Vale is OUT NOW! 

You better watch out for people that bounce back from everything that’s meant to destroy them.

Those were the words that Coreline King learned to live by when it came to dealing with Tide ‘Rook’ Crow, member of the Battle Crows MC, general surgeon, and all-around jerk who lived to make her life a living hell.


It all started in high school when he stopped seeing her as a random girl and started to see her as his rival.


Together, they became ‘frenemies.’ I.e.—a person with whom one is friendly, despite a fundamental dislike or rivalry.


At least, it started out like that.


Everyone always says there’s a fine line between love and hate. And at first, Tide and Coreline don’t realize how very true that is.


Not until Tide gets hurt defending Coreline’s honor, and Coreline has to fix him because she feels like she owes him.


But one night of bad choices leads to a very big ‘oops’ that will either haunt them for the next eighteen years or bring them together as tight as they ever could be.

MY REVIEW – 5 stars

What a fabulous Enemies to Lovers story!

The verbal barbs between Tide and Coraline were often funny. I loved the push and pull between these two. Everyone could see how much they liked each other, even though the two adamantly denied it.

Suspense, romance, laughter… Lani Lynn Vale delivered another gripping book that I couldn’t put down. I’m seriously addicted!

MY REVIEW – 4 1/2 stars

I’m enjoying the Battle Crows series, although I’m starting to miss the KPD guys. This was a nice addition to the series.

Shine is tough yet gentle when it comes to Iris. He’d do anything for her. The way they meet starts out funny and quickly turns into an “oh crap” moment. Thankfully, Shine is there to get her to safety.

I enjoyed both characters and the overall storyline. I did feel like the ending was a bit rushed. There’s major action toward the end of the book, and while the build-up to it is incredible, once that moment happens it’s a mad dash to the end. At least, that’s how it felt for me. I did like the epilogue, and I’m eagerly waiting for the next book.

In all, it was a great read. If you want action, drama, romance, and a bit of humor, then you can’t go wrong with Make Me Your Villain.

BOOK REVIEW & NEW RELEASE: Always Someone’s Monster by Lani Lynn Vale #mcromance #agegap

Always Someone’s Monster

Battle Crows MC, Book 1

Lani Lynn Vale

Release Date: January 25, 2022

About the Book

A few years ago, when his sister went missing, Haggard Crow turned into something he never wanted to be. A killer.

Even after his sister is rescued a year after she was kidnapped and sold, Haggard ‘Thief’ Crow doesn’t have any plans on changing. He sort of likes the zero fucks given guy that he is now.

Bonus points, he saves women and children from extreme situations, along with his club and real life brothers by his side.

After a horrible marriage, Haggard has zero plans of ever finding a woman again. One-night stands not counting, he adores his life as a single man. There are no expectations. No ‘where are yous’ and ‘are you coming homes.’

The life he chooses to live is a simple one. Until he makes a huge mistake, and he steps over that line between ‘daughter’s best friend’ and ‘a woman he desperately wants.’

Before long, he can’t stop thinking about her. Can’t stop wanting her. Can’t stop feeling things for her that a man twenty years her senior should never feel for a girl he watched grow up.

After one lapse in judgment, he decides she needs to go. But the funny thing is, he never expected Sophia Madden to fight back. And dirty at that.

MY REVIEW – 5 stars!

You’ll need tissues!

I don’t like spoilers, so I won’t say why you need the tissues, but seriously… don’t read this book without some.

Sophia has loved Haggard since was a teenager, and after she became a legal adult, Haggard started to see her differently. Though he did his best to keep away from his best friend’s daughter, they were fated to be together… and when tragedy strikes, Haggard finally realizes life is too short to not grab hold of the person you love regardless of the consequences.

Sophia is strong in many ways yet vulnerable in others. Haggard is all alpha and not afraid to get his hands dirty in order to protect those he loves. They balance each other so well! I adored how sweet Haggard was to Sophia when that’s what she needed, but could go all caveman too.

If you like age gap romances, with action and drama, if you’re prepared for an emotional story, then Always Someone’s Monster is a must-read!

New Release & Review: Chalk Dirty to Me by Lani Lynn Vale #romanticsuspense #contemporaryromance #bookreview

Chalk Dirty to Me

Madd Crossfit Series 3

October 5, 2021

About the Book

Two years ago, Cannel Crow experienced the worst day of her life. She was taken from a supermarket, and forced to spend a year with a man that treated her worse than a neglected, chained up dog.

One year later, she’s saved by a shadow organization that believes the law is a joke, and the only person you can count on is you.

After another year, she finally realizes the law’s limitation firsthand when the man that bought her from human traffickers, and then forced her to comply to his every whim for a year, is given a plea bargain for names of others in the operation.

Knowing that her abuser will spend the rest of his life in the lap of luxury under an assumed name, Cannel spirals.

At least, she begins to.

Then Wilhelm Schultz, call me Will, walks into her narrow world, larger than life, and changes her reality between one breath and the next.

The abrasive, larger, gruff police detective sees the world in black and white. There is right, and there is wrong.

Until he falls for a woman that needs him to see shades of gray.

The second he sees the world like she needs him to, there’s not a single thing on the planet that’ll stop him from fighting for her.

Not even the oath he swore to protect and do no harm.

My Review – 5 stars!

Wow, just… wow. Typically, I can see the bad guy coming a mike away, and while I did have my suspicions I wasn’t entirely certain. Loved the twists and turns, the drama, but I especially loved Will and Cannel. 

When Will learns about Cannel’s past, he promises to take things as slow as she needs him to. He does everything possible to make her feel safe. It’s clear how much he adores her, and it will make you absolutely melt. 

Cannel lived through hell and is still trying to find her new normal. With Will, she gets exactly what she needs. Love, devotion, and someone determined to protect her without smothering her. 

The steamy scenes are great, but their relationship is based on so much more. Will and Cannel are a perfect match! I can’t wait to read more about her brothers…

New Release & Book Review: Inmate of the Month by Lani Lynn Vale #romanticsuspense #contemporaryromance

Inmate of the Month

Souls Chapel Revenants MC Book 7

Lani Lynn Vale

Release Date: September 21, 2021

A porn video changed his life.

One second, he has an ex with an ax to grind, and the next, he’s internet famous—and definitely not in a good way. In an, it’ll ruin your career, kind of way.

Only, Laric didn’t know that he was internet famous.

Not until a black-haired beauty walks into his life, and stumbles over every word that she says because all she can picture is him doing the unthinkable for the world to see.

Sadly, that’s not the only thing wrong in his life. His world is messed up, and he likes it that way.

There’s no room for a woman that wants to fix him.

Because fixing requires intimacy, and intimacy isn’t something that Laric does. Not after the life that he’s lived, and the things he’s done to survive. Oh, and let’s not forget the fact that he’s a felon, and he has no regrets about how he got that title.

The last thing he needs in his life is a woman that has her head in the clouds and thinks this world is made of butterflies and confetti.

However, Catori isn’t who she seems.

The day she meets tall, dark, and handsome, he saves her life. And then never leaves—though not for his lack of trying.

Not that she’s complaining about the way they’re thrown together, time after time. She’s more than willing to have a man like Laric around. Mostly because she’s already seen the good in him that he refuses to admit that’s there.

He may be a biker that does questionable things, but in her heart, she knows that he does those bad things for good reasons. And she’s not about to throw away the chance at happiness just because he thinks he knows what’s best for her.

Plot twist: she knows what’s best for her. And that’s him.

God help her.

MY REVIEW – 5 stars


I think I have a new favorite when it comes to Lani Lynn Vale’s books. I absolutely loved Laric! The way he was with Catori, so protective and sweet, was swoon-worthy. Nothing like seeing a big bad biker type let a woman wrap him around her finger. He’d have done anything for her, and did!

Catori isn’t exactly a weak woman. She stands up for herself, and tries to protect those around her. What else would you expect from the daughter of Jack and Winter? I loved seeing her go toe to toe with Zak, and the way she just knew that Laric was the one for her.

If you want a romance you can’t put down, a hero who is everything bad@$$ and sweet at the same time, and a heroine who’s the perfect combination of vulnerable and tough, then Inmate of the Month is a must-read! I seriously didn’t want it to end!

New Release: Jerk It by Lani Lynn Vale #contemporaryromance #bookreview

Jerk It

Madd Crossfit Series 2

September 7, 2021

About the Book

Mavis always assumed that she would be in a hospital with the good drugs when her time came. Not in the middle of the road, with no one around but the damn town mechanic that hated her.

But there she was, having a rock star’s baby, with no one to rely on but the one that let it be known around every turn that she was a horrible person.

From the time that she met Murphy and became best friends with him at the age of eight, she knew he was destined for greatness.

But then her grandmother fired Murphy’s mom, forcing them to live on the streets, and making Murphy to realize that maybe they weren’t best friends after all.

Murphy loved Mavis.

At least, he had when he was younger, before she betrayed him.

From that moment forward, Murphy goes out of his way to stay the hell away from her, and always makes sure to never get too close. Even though everything inside of him screams to make contact.

When he moves back to town after being gone for five years, he tries his best to stay away.

But there she is at his CrossFit gym. Then having a baby on the side of the road. Oh, and breaking him a little more with each step she takes away.

Eventually, they find their way back to each other. The only problem is, by the time that Mavis makes her way back into his heart, it breaks. And not in a rhetorical way. In the ‘he only has days to live’ kind of way.

My Review – 5 stars!

Stock Kleenex before reading this book … you’ll need it.

In my 40+ years on this earth, fewer than 5 books have made me cry. This one about broke me. I wanted to go curl up in my husband’s lap after reading one of the toughest chapters ever, even though I knew Ms. Vale would make sure Mavis and Murphy got their HEA. So go into this one expecting a bit of heartbreak.

I enjoyed the banter between Mavis and Murphy a great deal. No matter how much they claimed to dislike one another, it was clear they were trying to hide their true feelings. When they finally gave in, the romance between them amped up fast.

Jerk It is beautiful, painful, and messy… which is exactly how love should be. Ms. Vale deserves a standing ovation for this one!

New Release: Gen Pop (Souls Chapel Revenants MC) by Lani Lynn Vale #romanticsuspense

GEN POP by Lani Lynn Vale is OUT NOW!!


#aboutHangry: adjective—feeling irritable or irrationally angry as a result of being hungry.
Sometimes, Crockett felt that in her soul.

And, of course, the one time that she’s being ‘irrationally angry’ would be the time that the hottest guy on the continent walked into her place of business dressed in prison orange.

She should’ve been afraid.

She should’ve taken one look at him and walked the other way.

But, she didn’t.

Crockett Archer, better known as a doormat extraordinaire, didn’t walk away from the people she knew needed her. She’d never been able to do it with a father that didn’t love her, and she wouldn’t be able to do it with a man that didn’t think he deserved a chance at love.

One look is all it takes for Zach Caruso to know that Crockett could be his.

All he would have to do is snap his fingers, and she’d fall right into the palm of his hand.

Which is why Zach turns around and walks far, far away.

He tries not to look back.

He tries to leave her be.

But then he sees how she’s treated by the people that are supposed to love her, and all cognitive thoughts seem to flee his rational brain.

One second, he’s running in the opposite direction. The next, he’s playing her knight in dingy armor.

New Release: No Rep by Lani Lynn Vale #contemporaryromance #romanticsuspense @LaniLynnVale

NO REP by Lani Lynn Vale is OUT NOW!


Taos was tired.

Tired of everything that came with living. Not to the point where he was suicidal or anything, but tired enough that he just didn’t give a crap anymore.

He’d seen all the ugliness this world had to offer due to his job as a police officer for way too many damn years of his less than stellar life. After finding a way to sustain his spending habits that didn’t include having criminals point guns at his face, he quits without a backward glance.

Only, he just can’t step away from old habits.

Old habits that have to do with a beautiful young woman that makes his heart feel like it isn’t nearly as broken as it is.

Fran has experienced more than her fair share of crap. After an attack that nearly took her life, she stays hidden in her house, fearful that stepping out of her comfort zone will be the final nail in her coffin.

Then her sister forces her to face her fears, and she joins Madd CrossFit.

There, she meets the man that saved her life a year ago, and realizes rather quickly that he doesn’t even realize who he is to her.

He’s everything she ever thought a man should be and wants nothing to do with her.

Maybe she’ll have to give him a reason to look her way.

And damned if she doesn’t find a way to do it.

She didn’t plan on nearly getting killed for that to happen, though.

At least not again.

Cover Reveal: Shakedown by Lani Lynn Vale #contemporaryromance #coverreveal

Shakedown

Souls Chapel Revenants MC Book 8

Lani Lynn Vale

Release Date: November 9, 2021

About the Book

Wanted: someone to hand feed me Doritos so my hands don’t get orange. No weirdos.

Belle Pena was an editor. Not a writer.

When her brothers challenge her to create a dating profile, she makes up the most random biography she can think of. She never, not ever, thought she’d find anybody to respond. But she was sorely mistaken.

Sadly, she finds that she has way more interest than she ever could’ve imagined.

But only one profile catches her eye.

Bruno never meant to take the dating app seriously. Being the last single man in his band of misfits, he’s happy being the odd man out. Women spelled trouble, and he had enough trouble in his life to last him through the next decade.

Only his newfound family doesn’t feel the same. One innocent ‘sure’ has the women of the Souls Chapel Revenants MC creating him a dating profile that is too spot on to be comfortable. And just when he decides to delete the app entirely, a particular face catches his eye.

One innocent question of ‘Belle is that you? Do you remember punching me in the throat in high school?’ has him stepping into trouble neck deep, and he doesn’t even realize it until it’s too late.
