F-Bomb (Bear Bottom Guardians MC #9) by Lani Lynn Vale


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. 

Who knew that baby-making-weather was a real thing?

You get a little bit about Slate and his fiancé and their tragedy from previous Bear Bottom Guardian books, but you need to forget everything you thought you knew.

Slate did what any one of us would have wanted to do in his situation. He may have acted impulsively, given his profession at the time, but I think he gets a pass this time. He even kept doing the right thing during his time in prison by helping out the MC whenever he could.

Harleigh was a little odd, and not just in her sleeping habits. She has valid fears and she’s trying to deal with them in the way she thinks makes sense, but her solution just screamed flawed at me every time it was mentioned.

I loved this book because it’s a Bear Bottom Guardians MC book and I get to visit with some of my favorite characters. I just wish that Slate and Harleigh had more chemistry. They didn’t mesh the way some of the others did. Maybe I’m being too hard on them, but I had too many questions to be completely satisfied.
