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.

This is book three in the series and by far the best. I love, love, loved everything about this book. The two main characters were funny and the way they handled things had me laughing out loud. Even when the main character was being an ornery sufferable pouty man. The writing, pace, everything was so good in this one. This book isn’t per se a comedy but there were comedic things going on. Now, this is an MC book and we all think they are bad boys. Typically they are. This series though is a bit different. You have the leader that is a cop in his spare time. You also have one that is an EMT, oh and let’s not forget the doctor. So you see yes, they can be bad boys but they are some really good guys.
I loved how Verity and Alan “Truth” Reacher met. It sucked me in from the get-go. I was right there rooting for them after the debauchery that was bestowed upon them. Poor Truth. He witnessed his girlfriend having sex on his beloved bike. Then Verity finds out when going in for a fitting for her wedding dress that the dress is now being tailored to fit Truth’s girlfriend. Yes, I said Truth’s girlfriend. That is why I said they have so much in common. So these two wounded people meet at the nuptials. Because you see Verity’s ex Kenneth is marrying Truth’s ex-Destiny. The best man speech….priceless. Then these two head out to Vegas and binge drink, having a fun-filled Vegas weekend.
I loved this book. There is so much heartwarming love and humor with a little bit of drama. Truth tries to keep her at arm’s length but, he just still can’t seem to stay away. She finds him based on his job and by accident. Let me say his job is hot and I would like a front row seat to witness it. Just the right combination. The drama makes the story come to life and it was eye opening for Truth. Truth has some drama and turmoil going on and Verity is there as his support. Even when he is pushing her away. My heart broke for Truth when it hit the fan.
I can’t wait to read the next book in this series which is Sean’s. I would love to read Ghost’s story as well, so I hope he gets one. If you love a hot bladesmith, MC biker, former SEAL, with killer tattoos and a beard, with a strong and confident woman by his side when he allows, Then go and read this book. You won’t be sorry. Like I said this is my favorite so far in this series.
