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
Wow, this is book three of Dixie Wardens Rejects MC series. And I wasn't disappointed. 

I love Truth, he may have gone through a lot in his life, he may come off harsh and mean. But he has a big heart, and won't let his past define him or let anyone walk over him. 

I love Verity, she is very compassionate, and even though she was left broken hearted she didn't let that get to her. She also knows to stand up for herself. She is very funny, and also very caring about everyone.

I really enjoyed this book. WTMO

Warning: Never ask the guy whose bride was his girlfriend before you got caught doing it with her ON HIS BIKE to give a toast at your wedding to her.
Suggestion: Run off with the girl who was supposed to be the bride and was forced to come to the wedding.

So begins the life of Truth and Verity. A trip to Vegas. Their own drunken party and the after results. He was a hot, really hot, biker and more. She was a part-time librarian, part-time wedding planner, part-time glass blower, curvy girl who didn't think a hot guy like Truth would take a second look. When he did she looked right back and more.

Their relationship had more bumps than a four-humped camel. He had family issues and a history that ate at him. She had family issues and man problems. No matter how hard he tried, he couldn't resist her. Until--a terrible crime made him push her away. One more thing about Verity, persistence. She didn't give up easily, especially when she had it by good sources that the reason he pushed her away had nothing to do with not wanting her. The threats that his past brought to her could not be ignored.

How can she get him past the threats? Will he trust his brothers in the MC to help him protect her from a past enemy?

I found Verity more patient than I could ever have been--well maybe with Truth I'd make an exception. He was in extreme to being a rear end to tender and sweet. Keep 'em guessing sure fits this guy. I would have liked to see more emphasis with her craft and continuing it or at least plans to do so.

This is another compelling, gritty, steamy--gritty/steamy, MC story by the author who excels in this genre. If you don't like hot explicit encounters, violence, down-in-the-gutter language, and hot, sweaty, ripped guys, this may not be for you. But heck, if you are reading this, more of the same is better so enjoy. I sure did.
