In this new life of hers, her h ...more

Seriously, if I wasn’t already a silver fox stalker, I would be after meeting Steel Cross. I fell in love with both him and Winnie from the start and the love is still felt even though I’m at the end of their story. These two gave me all the feels and I adored their slow but intense development.
Winnie’s life had hit the shitter. Her husband left her for her best friend and had ruined her reputation. And she’s solely responsible for her two kids. Tha ...more
I loved big papa and Winnie's story! Seamlessly written to perfection with a little of everything this story just ticked all my boxes. Everything just fit so perfectly and they slid into each others life's seamlessly. Such well grounded and fantastically developed characters. The balance was spot on. The plot was set up well and executed to fictional perfection. I loved hearing from old faces and t ...more
I loved Winnie from the start. She was strong and independent and did whatever she could to try and give her kids a good life.
Steel stole my heart. Steel made a promise to keep an eye on Winnie’s house for a friend, knowing that she was actually telling him to keep an eye on Winnie and th ...more
Holy mother of SILVER FOXES!
After All the silver fox awesomeness that was Silas, I thought Lani Lynn Vale wouldn’t be able to give us a silver fox up to his level, well, guess I was dead wrong! Steel Cross -most kickass name EVER, btw - was the top Silver Fox to top all the MC Presidents!
Minnie was just as amazing and strong and the kids... WOW!
Now my mind was lost for an altogether different reason.
I knew that Steel was older. Hell, it was hard to miss the silverin ...more
The H's SON is OLDER than the h!!
The reason why I don't like big age gaps is because it ruins the 'happily ever after' - all I picture is the heroine outliving the hero
In this case by the time the h is 50yrs old the H would be 72yrs old!
Also, a pet peeve of mine is heroines getting pregnant at 16 (not by the hero!) and then moan about how hard it is...well no one forced you to have sex! so you have to live with the consequences and stop moaning about it!
Here I go again, another book by Lani Lynn Vale that I absolutely LOVED! I feel like I should let one of our other reviewers have a chance to
I’ve been waiting for sexy, sweet, silver fox, Big Papa for what seems like ever! The wait was entirely worth it!!! Big Papa has always been around, he’s like the favorite uncle, looking out for and taking care of everyone in his life. He is a badass, a law enforcement officer, the president, of a motorcycle club, totally alpha, tender and caring, all w...more
I love a story with a strong alpha silver fox. Steel, I am going to refer to him as that because I have a hard time calling him Big Papa, as does the heroine Winnie. He is a character with a larger than life presence and he is genuinely a great guy. His is not onl ...more
I love stories like this a lot as they just make you warm and fuzzy inside.I have to say that my heart broke for Winnie from first meeting her and the struggles she was enduring on top of trying to recover from a spinal stro ...more
Yum, a grey fox and a beard.
So, when I actually saw the cover, and then read the blurb, I was nervous. I started having doubts. I’m not a huge fan of books with great age differences. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I don’t care a ...more
Lani Lynn Vale’s writing, characters and fictional worlds are definitely a comfort for me. I easily get lost in her stories, and I can envision the places and people so readily. But of all of Vale’s many series, the Dixie Warden Rejects series has become one of my favorites of hers. I’ve been anxiously awaiting Big Papa’s story since she introduced this character, and his story was totally worth the wait. She brought the feels, the fire and the funny in Law & Beard, and it’s not only ...more

Why am I surprised?
20+ age difference
55(?) year old Hero
The usual down on her luck LLV heroine (at least she doesn’t have a super tortured past this time)
Heroine made the first move
And I am side-eyeing the fact that at the end of the book, heroine has 3 kids from 3 different men (sure, last one is from the Hero
But the book works for me, it was funny and romantic in the right places. Why can’t LLV consistently write like this? Coz I hated the other b ...more

Love, family and the best of heartaches…
As usual I dived right into the latest read by this author with no thought to time, day of week or the grown up stuff I was supposed to be doing! “Big Papa” was getting his story and I wasn’t waiting any longer….
“I didn’t want to feel like this about her.”
Nurturer, protector. These are words that fit both Steel and Winnie. Winnie’s kids were her everything and she was doing all she could to keep their broken family together - physically, emotionally, a ...more
I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this one. I had been wanting this story so long. I should have known I wouldn't be disappointed with this author.
First of all you take Steel Cross add to that Big Papa and you immediately are taken in. Then add to that Winnie and her badass self you know EVERYONE needs this effing book!!!!
Talk about a swoon worthy older man!!! But the part that me balling like a baby was at the end. Yep that's how I'm leaving it run along now and get th ...more
Steel was a guy who took his job seriously and compassionately, when Winnie’s kid kept getting into trouble he took care of it and became apart of Winnie’s life when an attraction is felt, taking care of her children too. They tried to fight their feelings at first to no avail and things got steamy fast.
But life always has a bumpy ride and Steele a ...more
