This is the 3rd in the Kingsmen MC Series, which should be read in order.

I received an ARC for a honest review. We pick up where we left off from book 2. "I'm not a girly girl!" Poor Lil's she's just sitting there playing with her ring contemplating the wedding, her pregnancy everything that happened when she was kidnapped. She's been through so much especially her best friend being killed. Now she's having to deal with the cops and wanting to know who actually killed Shade trying to trick her with this, that or another. Doesn't matter though, she's a strong damn cha ...more

I sat down on the floor and stuck my hand in between the the bars. You latched on and finally stopped crying. You just kept looking at me. I tried to let go, and you started to cry again. So I just sat there for a long time with my hand stuck in the crib. Eventually you fell asleep. I could have taken my hand back, but I didn't. I couldn't. I wanted you to know that someone was there.

Something changed. You weren't just Tiny's to take care of and protect anymore. You were mine, too. I remember th

A Lil Less Hopeless picks up were we left off. Jay got Lils back and Shade is dead. Cops are sniffing around the MC trying to get to the bottom who actually killed Shade. Meanwhile, Lils and Jay are steady preparing to get married. Dress shopping and bachelorette/bachelor parties are being planned and fun is being had. But a trip to the precinct has Lils rattled and Jay worried. Jay will do anything to protect Lils...but l

“Glad to know I can realistically pass for a hooker if need be.”

“He asked me a long time ago, in the beginning, if I was his girl. Truth be told, I was always his girl. And I always will be.”

I want more!!!
I am really serious with that "I want more". A Lil' Less Hopeless is the third installment of Kingsmen MC and I really hope it is not the last one for Lil and Jay because I don't think I am ready to let. go of them yet.
This book was written with flashbacks and with other multiple POVs, which for me made the book more interesting.
I think this is my favorite among the three books yet. It is sexy, exciting, and I love to see how Lil matures and do things she doesn't usually

A Lil' Less Hopeless continues with Jay and Lils and the aftermath of Shade's demise. The cops are investigating and trying to figure out who killed Shade and are hanging close to The Kingsmen MC club.

I really love the sense of family you get from a The Kingsmen MC club and the way they take care of those in the Kingsmen family. Jay and Lils are looking forward to their upcoming nuptials and Jay is willing to do anything for Lils.

It's good to see throughout the three books that Jay sticks by h

If you love a great biker read you have just found one of the best series! There is lots of suspense and action pack into such a fast read you don't even realize how fast it is till your sitting there think I just started. There is plenty of Alpha male to deal with in Jay alone but you throw in the rest of the Kingsmen and your have yourself a book full of hotness. Lil's still Lil never really backs down but know when to pick her fights and boy can she pick them!

Amazing read By Tara Oakes! Look

This is the third book in the Lil’ Less series and it more or less wraps up the story of Lil’ and Jay, and what a it story it has been. (Sigh.) I really enjoyed this last installment. The story line was solid and continued on from the previous book. It once again showed just how deep of a commitment Jay has for Lil’ and highlights Lil’s feisty side. Love the small twist and the lead in to the next book. I CAN NOT wait to find out what Charlie is hiding!!!! This book is steamy, romantic and a goo ...more

Jay and Lil are planning their wedding. What Lil doesn't know is that Jay has a plan that doesn't include her.
They had their wedding night and when Lil gets up Jay is no where to be found. She sets out to right the wrong that has been done, without the approval of their families.
The one thing I haven't understood in this series is that it was stated that Lil has the mouth of a sailor. I haven't seen any indication of this being true, so I am surprised that it was mentioned. It just seems like a

A lil less bored would do...Well that does it for me. When I know I have skimmed at least half the book to read the plot and story I know we're in trouble!

They don't seem so smart for an MC gang. Couldn't see an undercover anything as quick as I did - really? Take the blame for something instead of finding who you're looking for. The heroine and her friend source the info not the almighty club. His inability to include her in decision making - being treated like a dumb bimbo!

Then all of a sudden

WOW….JUST WOW….. A Lil’ Less Hopeless is the third book in the Kingsmen MC and it was by far my favorite. I absolutely love Lils & Jay and the chemistry they have with each other is awesome. Lil’s one of the best heroine’s I have read….she is witty, fun and takes no SH%T. Jay is….well...he rocks my world. I love his protectiveness nature towards Lil....who doesn’t want a hot man taking care of you. He is going to be an awesome father.

When I finished A Lil' Less Lost it ended with a mysterious woman who had insinuated herself into the club by catching the attention of a biker who doesn't take no for an answer...and helping out Lils' when she was hurt...but that's all we knew about the sneaky Charlie. I hoped we would find out more about her in this book, but nope, we have to wait for book 4 BUT that is ok because this one was chock full of action and romance as Jay and Lils' prepare to walk down the aisle.

I was provided with a Review Copy/ARC for review.
This review is much the same as my reviews of the first two books in this series, A Lil' Less Broken and A Lil' Less Lost.
To start, I want to say that I am a huge Biker/MC book junkie. I really like this story, but it isn't your run of mill Biker/MC book. It isn't as dark and gritty as most of my faves are. Although, this third book is a bit more on my normal level. Still a good story.

I've liked each book better than the last and thank goodness in this one, the words didn't run together so you can read the story not having to decipher it.

The story of Jay and Lil continues with Jay stepping up to protect Lil by admitting to a murder he did not commit. It's a book of family and we get to read a little more about Charlie and Clink. I'm looking forward to reading their story because normally you can guess what someone is hiding but there have been no clues in the previous two boo

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Again I loved the characters, mostly Jay and Lil's. They're both interesting characters who make things their own and fights for what they want. It was just amazing, and sigh.

The flashbacks were interesting and gave even more insights into characters, allowing a glimpse into the past. There were also chapters done from different character's perspectives. And not necessarily just Jay and Lil's. There certainly is a mystery involved around one

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, betrayal, danger, suspense, and heartbreak.

If you have not already read the below I recommend reading them first:

A Lil' Less Lost (The Kingsmen MC #2)

This is more of Lil’s and Jay’s story. What happens when you husband is willing to give up everything for you? Can you in turn offer the same thing for his return? Can Lil’s and Jay really survive without each other? When the going gets tough L

In the last installment of the Kingsman series we see that Jay was willing to put everything on the line to find and rescue the love of his life Lils. We think that all is going along smooth, until a plot twist comes into play and we see Lils stepping up and rescuing Jay. There is no way that someone as sassy and witty and strong willed will sit by and let anyone take a fall.
She goes against all orders from the club and goes out on her own with the help of a friend to set things straight and rig

I was given this ARC for an honest review.

In this third installment of The Kingsmen MC book series by Tara Oaks I give it four stars. This book was less about Jay and Lils as it ends there love story. It includes the wedding, of course, and you get to see some exciting new developments. In this book you get more of an insight of Clink and Charlie. This story was engaging and interesting. Many twists and turns. I love the new characters and look forward to seeing how things develop in book four.
