You murder a man, and all of a sudden people are scared of you.
Slate Solis went from being a guy that people went to in times of need to an ex-con that people crossed the street to avoid being too close to.
He knows he’s done wrong, but out of all of his sins, only one really bothers him—coveting thy neighbor’s wife.
Harleigh Belle—the cute little lady that never gives him a second glance.
After seeing her for the first time while he was in prison, she’s stayed on his mind for three long years. Each time she comes in to visit with her friend on family day, he can’t help but stare.
Then the day comes that he’s set free, and he’s almost disappointed that he’ll never see her again.
Except fate has different plans.
He hasn’t been back in his house for more than three hours when he sees her.
Harleigh Belle in all her glory…oh, and her husband that is everything Slate isn’t.
He tells himself that her being fifty feet away from him, all day every day, is a complete coincidence. One that he shouldn’t take advantage of. The more time passes, the harder it gets to stay away. Until one day, and one very ill-timed thunderstorm, ruin everything.

As soon as I met Slate Solis in his sister Izzy’s story, Mess Me Up, I needed his story because I knew that there was so much more than just the protective brother who readers were introduced to and I couldn’t wait to see what Lani Lynn Vale had in store for this honorable alpha male. Then, when I realized who Vale was matching Slate up with, I couldn’t wait to see how he tried to tame the sassy and strong-willed Harleigh and also learn about both of their backstories in order to understand the people they are today.
Even though readers were privy to a bit of Slate’s past, I wanted as much insight as I could get for both him and Raleigh because it’s clear that these two are still dealing with some heavy issues and could use an ally, someone who they can confide in, and it appears that they could be that person for one another, even if they had a bit of a rocky start as more frenemies than anything else.
I’m always drawn to Lani Lynn Vale’s hero and heroine and the relationship that she constructs for them because not only do they seem to be polar opposites in a lot of ways, but there also seems to be a contrast of emotions that the main characters feel toward each other – a mix of lust, disdain, and curiosity – and these feelings seem to intensify as their story continues, and while it’s clear that the chemistry and sexual tension between them will win out in the end, watching everything play out between them is one crazy and entertaining journey.
The brotherhood among the members of the Bear Bottom Guardians club members is illustrated throughout the pages of F-Bomb, and their camaraderie as well as the fact that they have each other’s backs, always, is a defining characteristic of what makes this motorcycle club an amazing one to be a part of for those men who need a place where they truly belong.
There’s never a dull moment in any book that I read from Lani Lynn Vale. Each story is packed with humor, steam, wit, and suspense, and F-Bomb holds true to those story components and adds in originality due to who the main characters are and how they make things work between them.
