MESS ME UP ~ LANI LYNN VALE --> MY REVIEW
When Rome Pierce moved to Bear Bottom, Texas, it was his intention to lay low. To not be seen. To find a way to heal his body and soul—as well as his son’s.
Nobody would know by looking at him that he used to play professional football. Not with the Bare Bottom MC cut covering his back, and definitely not with his friendly smile completely obliterated.
No longer is there charm in each smooth word that comes out of his mouth. What’s left is an angry, bitter, scared man that’s terrified one day he’s going to wake up and his entire world is going to be gone.
Nobody knows what drove him to leave the game he loved—nobody but her.
She’s the one person that has helped him make it through the dark days and even darker nights. She’s the bright and shining star in his pitch-black sky.
And he doesn’t even know her name.
He should be afraid that she knows things that not anyone—not even his best friend—knows.
Yet, with each encounter, he gives what little bit of his soul remains, and before he knows it only two people on this earth—one dying, and one too afraid to live—make his life worth living.
Until one day he has to choose—the love of his life, or the life he brought into this world.
Two impossible situations. One decision that would change him forever.
This was my first Lani Lynn Vale book and I was excited to read one of her books.
Well, let me tell you this author did not disappoint. I devoured this book. Any author that can catch me in the beginning of the book and bring the angst and emotion immediately and make me ugly cry is an author I will continue to read. When I thought about reading this book, knowing it was a motorcycle themed book, I never dreamed it would be what it was........awesome and not your run of the mill MC book.
Rome, suddenly retires from pro football stating an injury, but why he is actually retiring is due to his ex dropping their sick son on his doorstep and walking away.
Enter Izzy, the light to his dark.
I don't want to say too much because it is better to go into this book not know much. Just be sure to have tissues handy and settle in and prepare to be floored!
