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.
The characters themselves were great, Truth was stoic and honest, he has been through a lot in his life – its made him a very hardened man and it was wonderful to see he still had a sense of humor. I also loved the fact that he could appreciate a curvy woman. Verity was every woman I know basically, including myself. Open mouth, unfiltered thoughts roll out. She kept me laughing and sighing at her craziness. The two of them getting to know each other was sexy and comedic at the same time. And of course, LLV threw in a good dose of drama and danger to keep us readers on the edge of our seats.
I wont give away any spoilers for Son of a Beard but there were some things that happened within the story that made it less than a 5 star read for me. And that’s perfectly ok. At times I felt like it was just a little over the top with the story as far as being realistic, and while I know its a fiction book – realistic is just something ive grown to expect from this author. It certainly wont keep me from highly anticipating the rest of this series and any more works from LLV or from recommending Son of a Beard to others. Like I said, it was minor and something that might only have been noticable only to me.
