Mess Me Up (Bear Bottom Guardians Book 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.



My review: 4*
Mess me up is the first book in the Bear Bottom Guardians series by Lani Lynn Vale. This is a MC Romance. To me it was more of a contemporary romance since the MC was mentioned but did not have a staring roll. The story was very good and did keep my attention, and even made me cry.

The key players in the book are Roman an ex football player who now works as a prison guard and is in the Bear Bottom Guardians MC. Isabella is a hard working house keeper. Both have not had the best lives. Izzy was raised by an abusive father and married an abusive man. Roman was raised by parents who never showed they really cared, but had no qualms about begging for money after Some became famous. 

Rome hooked up one drunken night with Tara, not knowing she was dating his best friend. In the after math of that one night Rome looses his best friend and Tara becomes pregnant. Now 4 years later Tara dumps their dying son on him and takes off leaving him to deal with the death of their son. 

Izzy was hired by Tara to clean her house and became close friends with the dying boy. After Tara leaves, Rome will do anything to make his sons final days happy so when he asks Rome to call Izzy he doesn't think twice. Unbeknownst to Rome his pen pal who he tells everything to in his letters is none other then Izzy. She doesn't tell him until 6 months after his son dies though. Rome knows he likes Izzy in person and he knows there was a connection with his pen pal but is he ready for a relationship? Izzy has her own issues is she ready ready for a relationship?

I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 9, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
