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?
I love Slate in this book and I loved Harleigh Belle with him. The thing about LLV is that all her books are connected in some way and you really have to go back sometimes to reread the parents book (which is what I did and loved it!!) I also really loved the fact that Harleigh is one tough character - even though they're always talking about how tiny she is and how she has to be taken care of all the time...she just had some internal strength that I think no one but Slate saw and he just never gave up. He was probably one of my favorite characters right up there with Silas and those are some big shoes to fill because I ❤❤ Silas something fierce. I had been waiting for Slate's story probably since the very beginning of the Bear Bottom MC series. If you've read all of the series, then it's a no brainer to pick this one up. If you've not read any - that's totes okay because you're not going to be lost if you pick up here and start. This might bring your love for all things LLV!❤🙌
