RELEASE BLITZ ~ Mess Me Up (Bear Bottom Guardians MC #1) by Lani Lynn Vale

Title: Mess Me Up

Series: Bear Bottom Guardians MC #1

Author: Lani Lynn Vale


Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: September 6, 2018

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.

I’d love to spend a little time inside Lani Lynn Vale‘s mind…. how she keeps track of the characters, story threads, events, relationships and everything other little details that she winds through her stories is quite something and it all hooks me from the very first page!

Mess Me Up is Rome and Izzy’s story and it’s heartbreaking pretty much from the off. It has all the feels, emotions, action, humour and great characters that we’ve come to expect from LLV but it was the hurt, heart ache and ultimate heart break that both our Isadora and Romero experienced that had me glued to my kindle, unable to tear myself away from their story.
Seriously, make sure you’ve got at least a box of tissues at the ready and maybe don’t read this in public or you’re gonna get some weird ass looks!

We had met Rome in So Sad, Too Bad in the Simple Man seriesso knew a little about what was going on in his personal life but when we got to see the full extent of his actions that destroyed his friendship with Tyler and the subsequent events that’s when you realise just how hard his life has been and how much he was floundering on his own and just how devastated he is.

Izzy has her own fair share of heartbreak and misery in her life and she too needs someone to ground her and give her some happiness that she truly deserved

I adored how this pair first came into contact, how they came to meet in person and the extent of their love, care and attention that they gave Matias – especially Izzy, given that she had no direct relationship to that wonderful little boy.

I have to admit, I was a complete mess reading this book… it literally did Mess Me Up – the Gods only know how Lani got through writing it because at points I could hardly see the kindle screen for the tears that were constantly falling!!!

This was a tremendous start to the new Bear Bottom Guardians MC series and after meeting the other guys, I cannot wait for their books!

5 great big well deserved stars!
