Keep It Classy (Bear Bottom Guardians MC #7) by Lani Lynn Vale
Ghosts are real.
Well, technically speaking, maybe not. But the ones that haunt a man’s soul? Those are very real. So real, in fact, that there are times when Castiel would rather silence them forever in the worst way possible than to go on living with them haunting his every step.
All it took was one single second in time for his attention to drift, and everything changed.
Life as he once knew it, is over.
Now he’s struggling to make sense of the pieces that are left, and he’s fairly sure at least half of them are missing.
He’s living for three things now.
His club—the Bear Bottom Guardians.
His work as a police officer for Bear Bottom Police Department.
And the occasional glimpse of a girl that makes his spirit feel free.
Despite the ghosts that haunt him, he’s not willing to present them with another target. Which is why he has to stay away from her. He can’t touch her. He can’t talk to her. He can’t get anywhere near her.
Not and live with himself afterward.
The only problem is, Turner doesn’t care what Castiel wants. She also has a solution for his ghosts.
You may call her Ms. Ghostbuster.
Wow. This book has so much about it to love. The frenemies to lovers back story between these two is so much fun to watch and the serial killer threat will pull you in and have you guessing from the very beginning. Turners job is hilarious and Castiel’s history with his ex-wife makes you want to get rid of her and help him hide the body.
Turner will definitely hit you right in the feels. Castiel is grumpy, but so damn loveable and we get more of the Bear Bottom Guardians, which is probably one of my favorite Lani Lynn Vale series. As far as I’m concerned, those men can do no wrong.
Anyone who has every struggled with their weight or self-image are going to fucking love Turner. Her experiences, the thoughts that run through her head on repeat and how she was always constantly on guard around other people, was spot on.
Castiel has so much emotional baggage, I’m surprised he was as socially functional as he was. But he was a master of compartmentalizing. What killed me was that a lot of what pulled him down was no fault of his own.
Keep It Classy had the potential for being my favorite book of the series. Turner and Castiel have all my love. It started out strong and definitely poked at a lot of emotional buttons. I loved that their relationship built over time and wasn’t a love at first sight situation. They knew all the good, bad and ugly about each other. But, I finished the book with just too many unanswered questions for it to take that top spot.
One, they had to be soft. Two, there had to be no tags, anywhere. The first thing I did when I got a new pair of pants or a t-shirt of any kind was to cut out every single tag in sight.
Three, all of my clothes had to fit me correctly. My jeans had to hit the perfect spot right at my hip bones or I wouldn’t wear them. And don’t even get me started on my socks.
