Hoax knows two things very well.

One, he’s not relationship material. Two, the nurse that treats him for erectile dysfunction is the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen, and practically has ‘the marrying type’ stamped on her forehead.

Does that stop him from wanting her? No.

Unfortunately, he learned a long time ago that Army Delta Force and long-lasting relationships d

MEGA SWOON!!!!! I already expected an spectacular story based on blurb alone, but consider my mind blown: Hoax and Pru are EVERYTHING! My Bad is absolute Contemporary Romance Perfection! All the hearts, all the starts for these two and their love story!

I’ve been waiting for this book since the very first LLV book, Boomtown! After Sam and Cheyenne’s amazing love story and his alpha with capital A, I couldn’t wait to see his girls all grown up and driving hi

I was interested in Hoax since reading about him in earlier books and I was totally excited for this book. I wanted to see what the woman for him would be like. While Hoax remains as interesting and sexy as he appeared to be in his set up, I’ve got to say that I’m a bit let down by the heroine chosen for him. I felt that Pru was immature in some of her reasoning and that the growth was there but not quite enough. Despite that, I found the storyline interesting and I eagerly devoured the pages de ...more

More or less the same as the previous books. Nothing new here.
Insta lust, insult love, crazy villain, many unexplained points or who knows I missed something in some previous book that explained the lunatic behavior of their boss at the hospital.

4.5 out of 5 stars

After the chaos in Mess Me Up, I was very hesitant as to what this book would entail. Normally, I might have not given a chance to the book after MMU, but I liked the writing and the setting in that story, so I wanted to try this one too. I was very happy by the end of the book and I can say that it was worth the risk. It didn't have a lot of drama which is a plus in my book. I didn't want to see them fighting over the baby or her having to raise it alone for a while because Ho
Hoax knows something is wrong with his lower region area and decides he needs to be checked out. At the hospital he sees Pru and decides maybe she is the solution to his problem. When he asks her out though she says no. Not one to mess with fate Hoax decides the second time he meets her that she is worth the effort and finds ways to insert himself into her life.

Pru doesn't date anyone in the military. She has been burned too many times and doesn't want another repeat. However, the more she spend

I love a good MC romance story. They are usually a little grittier, dark, and angsty. This series may not be all of those things, but it's a fairly decent read. The chemistry between Hoax and Pru was great, they had some nice steamy moments, and they also had a lot of funny banter. My issues with this book were the insta-love aspect. I am not a fan of this, and I've always made that clear. There was just one little thing that may bother me but not others. The cover does not represent the main ch ...more

Review by Lisa Kane

Hoax Hudson Hicks has an embarrassing problem. Seems he hasn't been able to rise to the occasion lately. So he finds himself at the ER to get his problem checked out. (not sure if this would be considered a medical emergency!)

Either my dick was broken, or I was about to die.

He just hasn't had any normal sexual reaction to anything lately. That is until he spots a nurse working in the ER.

Since when did hospital scrubs become so fitted?

There is HOT and then there is Hoax and Pru…

The electricity between Hoax and Pru was obvious from their very first meeting. Their immediate attraction and lust was intense, with witty and sexy banter adding to their spark. There’s nothing hotter than two people who can’t keep their hands off each other and they definitely fit that bill! And to make it all sexier, they laugh together all while wading through life’s c**p with each having the other’s back. They were simply fun to watch and read, as

I am in the process of reading the Freebird series and man it just have me hooked all over again on this authors books.
This one was no different.
Pru does not date patients or military men. She does not need another over protective man in her life or another military guy that cheats on her. But she doesn't know what she's in for when she meets Hoax.
Hoax met Pru when he went into the ER because he thought he had a problem 'down under', lol. But the minute he sees Pru he knows that she is
Sweet and safe. Insta-love. Happy end with babies.
I liked Pru and I liked Hoax. But their story was really tame.

Seriously I've been waiting on this since 2013. I mean like the minute I knew Sam and Cheyenne were having babies I just needed to know how the second generation got on and whilst I know we've already had some of the second gen stories .. it was all about coming full circle where it all started and that is with Sam and Cheyenne.

Also I wanted to see Sam's reaction!. Heck yes.

Pru and Hoax make my heart happy.

Pru is legit a baby Cheyenne. Don't get it mixed up though! She has her own personality

I am a huge fan of Lani Lynn Vale’s, and a large reason for that is because of this amazing fictional world she has built for her readers in Texas through many interconnecting stories and series and characters. With each new book she releases, Vale builds upon that community, and it’s resulted in an unparalleled reading experience, one unique to Lani. But what’s truly remarkable is how she’s written these stories in such a way that a new reader doesn’t have to go all the way back to t
My Bad is everything you'd want in a LLV book. It's full of sassy women....Overprotective alpha men....and laugh out loud antics by all.
The difference with this book is that is was super sweet. Hoax and Pru were absolutely adorable together. There never was a moment that they didn't show each other that they loved each other.
I'm am loving that the next generation is getting their own books. Can't wait for the next book!

Reviewed on,
I just loved this book right from the beginning when we hear the opening thoughts in Hoax’s head, as he sees the nurse in the ER who cured his problem without knowing.
Hoax asks Pru out straight away, and she refuses as he is military man. Hoax finally wears Pru down as they start to fall very quickly. This is LLV at her best, this book had it all a great storyline, with lots of different characters that I loved. Pru been around ex-military men and motorbikes al
There is so much I could say about this book, but I don't want to give anything away! This book is connected to several of the series by LLV, but mostly in a peripheral way. Hoax has close ties to the Bear Bottom Guardians, but leads a nomadic lifestyle. He is military, with no real home base. He lives life as it comes, taking it day to day, until a trip to the ER for an embarrassing condition leads to a life changing meeting. There is an instant connection, and even though she doesn't want to g ...more

Bear Bottom Guardians is good MC series. I really like that author did take me to world full of bad, big boys with bad big and wild machines. My Bad is great additon as next book in this series.

Lani Lynn Vale done amazing job with Hoax and Pru's story. I enjoy them since the begining. I read My Bad in one setting because for sure this book is impossible to put down.

Pru is woman who knows how MC world works. She knows the rules, she knows  men like Hoax...  Exactly that makes her petfectly match

I am loving this series so much! Although it says Bear Bottom MC, most of the books are about the romance between the main characters and very little about the MC. I say that up front not because the book is bad, but go in with the expectation of reading a really good book and not on what the MC part of the story is.

We have met Hoax and Pru in previous books. They bump into each other at the hospital where Pru works and Hoax just can't get her out of his head. She actually knows some of his cra

I liked that there was no relationship drama in this one. Liked how Pru and Hoax were together from the start and how Hoax wasn't afraid of Pru's dad and uncles. Of course a big part of that probably had to do with his connection to the Dixie Wardens.

Both Pru and Hoax dealt well with his job and I loved how Pru won over the rest of the guys. I also liked how Hoax supported Pru in her job, she definitely needed it.

The ending had me smiling, loved how protective Hoax was.

My Bad was oh so good. I think this is my favorite book of the Bear Bottom Guardians MC series. Pru and Hoax are my new favorite couple by Lani Lynn Vale. The chemistry between these two is off the charts explosive, the banter between them is spot on and I just overall loved everything about them and their relationship.

Hoax—I'm so in live with the name, by the way—and Pru's story charmed the pants off of me. Since the beginning, they had an incredibly strong bond, which, I'm sure, could withstand anything. And maybe it was the main reason why their story could be almost drama-free and... just perfect.

I enjoyed the dynamic between Hoax and Pru.

After going to the hospital for a "little problem", Hoax runs into Pru and as always, it is instalove. As Hoax and Pru meet again, Hoax is working towards a relationship with Pru and she is shying away from him as she can tell from his outward appearance that he is military and she has sworn off dating military men.

Hoax goes about wooing Pru and there are just some great swoony parts in this story.
