This was a really cute story that I really enjoyed especially with the chemistry the main characters had as well as all the fun characters that were pure enjoyment. Lily had her own circle of amazing friends between the girls and old ladies right down to the club brothers who were all so protective of her.

Lily was my favorite character she was a riot and was fun, sassy, sexy, compassionate, and a woman who has come a long way in two years since she had come to the club.

Bull was more like bullhea

The Dreaded Friend Zone

Bull and Lily had been friends for two years but Lily was done with that and wanted their friendship to continue on to the next level and that’s when Bull pulled her from the dreaded friend zone only to put her in an even worse category…the sister zone!!

Lily had been through so much in her life that she was willing to fight her way into Bull’s bed and into a relationship she knew he wanted too. Bull had things from his past that kept him from moving forward and it took a

Harley has given us a wonderful friends to lovers romance with Bull & Lily.
When they first meet Lily is a young woman that has been through a terrible trauma and Bull makes it his mission to keep her safe. It is a situation to close to home for him. Their friendship is wonderful but now two years later Lily wants more and is tired of being put back in the friend zone. She never expected the secrets that this wonderful man was keeping and now it is time to show him that he is worth the risk! I lo

Taming Bull is a friends to lovers read in the Dead Presidents MC series by Harley Stone. The book looks at Lily Perkins, a woman who has been through some trauma, but she isn’t going to let that stop her. She has been in love with her best friend Deryk ‘Bull” Roberts, but has been officially friend-zoned in the hardest way.
Bull likes Lily and would like to have more with her, but this former military man has demons of his own and doesn’t feel it is fair to start something with Lily. Not only d

Taming Bull (Dead Presidents MC Book 9)
Harley Stone
This book was well written in my opinion
I was drawn to the characters and was interested in what happens next.
This book kept my attention which I love
I like when a author book can make u feel like you are there in the story.
Lilly&Deryk explained very well in the story, and how things unfold between them was done well
The story plot alone got me so involved with the story.
Overall this story meet my expectations and more

Lily and Bull.
I adored Lily. Bull ? Well, honestly for me his nickname felt really appropriate for most of the book. I felt like Bull)# reasons for putting Lily through all he did was complete and utter Bull
I’m gonna try not to give away anything important but I gave a warning and I want to explain why I feel the way I do.
I think we all know Bull lost someone really important to him,which caused him to act out and that’s why he’s in S
A refreshing take on a friends to lovers romance, this story pulled me in right from the beginning. There was just enough drama to make it interesting, but not so much that it wasn't believable. This author has a way of making the characters seem real, and their story seem like you are right in the middle of it when it's happening.

Bull had an amazingly normal childhood. Growing up in a typical southern family, his life seemed to be planned out for him, and he was happy. After going away to serv

I love this biker series by Harley Stone. Unlike most MC’s, the Dead Presidents MC is made up of men who are all former servicemen that need a place to call home after serving their country. For many it’s a place to get the brotherly comradery and structure they had in the service for others is a place to be themselves while struggling to return to civilian life.

Bull’s situation is a little different. He had barely began his first term before he landed in the brig and eventually discharged. The

Harley Stone nailed it!!! She has taken a complicated, sad topic and given hope to her readers. Lily was raped two years earlier. She ran in fear but stood up to the suspect with the support of The Dead Presidents. They continue to support her.

She could have crumbled but she has chosen to survive, thrive and give love a chance. She holds her friendship to Bull close to her heart but she wants more. She wants him. She needs him.

Bull values his friendship with Lily but it can't be more. His past

I’ve been a fan of Harley Stone’s books for a while, but this has to be my new favorite! Bull and Lilly’s story goes back to the first book in this series, Link’d Up. But you don’t have to read that first.

Since their first meeting two years ago, Bull (although he’s attracted to her) has firmly kept Lilly in the “friend-zone”. And good grief is that man stubborn! Bull is an appropriate road name for him, he is VERY bullheaded!

Lilly has not had an easy life the last few years. Homeless for a few

This is the 9th book in this amazing series and is Bull and Lily’s story. These two are best friends but Lily wants more out of their relationship, while Bull has her firmly place din the friend category. Bull had a normal childhood until he joined the military, and when tragedy strikes his life as he knows it spirals out of control. Lily has had a tough life, and after a tragic event she heads to the “Dead Presidents” and to them man she considers as her future, now she just needs to convince h ...more

I loved this book!

I have to say that Lily and Bull have become my favorites! Lilly with her wit and hilarious sayings. She is a great character. A woman that had been through so much, and worked hard to get her life on track. She did it with her first spirit and humor. She was great. Bull had struggles of his own and demons he needed to lay to rest. Through his friendship with lilly he was able to overcome his obstacles because lilly would not settle for anything less for her best friend. A won

Y'all its time for Lily and Bull they've been friends for a few years and Lily definitely wants more. Bull is definitely Bull headed and Lily calls him out on it. These two have chemistry thats crazy but Bull keeps her in the friend zone and then moves her to the sister zone and she about looses it. I love how everyone pulls together and backs Lily. Tay has a heart to heart with Bull and its like the light bulbs go off he's still very bull headed. These two work together and they make it work an ...more

I love Lily & Bull's story! Their whole friend zone dance made me want to smack them at times, but I was in good company because I think their friends were all in that same boat til they got it together. LOL

I love both their personalities & how they work together. There are some very deep emotions they need to work through, but also light & fun moments because they've both got that kind of personality. And of course, there is the steam & chemistry they have going on!!

Book nine in the Dead Presidents MC series. Can be read and enjoyed as stand-alone. Full length told in dual POV with HEA. The Dead Presidents are a motorcycle club where all members are military vets. Each book is about a different member and secondary characters are the same throughout the series. The first half was a little slow for me with Bull being stubborn and pushing Lily away. I really liked Lily; she did not give up, but gave Bull space & friendship until he was ready to put his past b ...more

This book was awesome we have a flashback of sorts back when Havoc rescued the girl from an attack , i mean he was late in keeping her from being hurt but the guy paid for what he did and then Lily stayed with fhw MC til she testified against her attacked and kept Havoc from prison. We met Bull , he became friends with Lily but she wants more he does too but she is a reminder of his past , these two have a unique story and you how it is told.

This book was awesome. I loved Bull and Lily together. They were friends first and even though tried to keep it just friends Lily was ready for it to be more. This story draws you in. I was able to laugh a lot during the book. Harley Stone is an amazing writer. She puts her all into the books. I loved seeing Lily come more into her own. They both had a lot to over come to find their happily ever after. Can’t wait to see what happens next. I HIGHLY recommend this book.

Big 5 stars!!!

Another fantastic read by favorite MC author!! Hound and Lily try for their HEA after circling each other for years.

Just the sweetest story! Great dialogue and character development without being too angsty. A quick and easy read with some great laugh out loud moments. Haven't been disappointed by a Harley Stone book yet!

Bull and Lily

What a great friends to lovers story. I have loved this series from the very beginning and it just keeps getting better with each book. My heart broke for Bull and his loss. I loved Lily's strength and her determination to get what she wanted and that being Bull. I'm so happy he got his head out of his butt. I can't wait to see who fall as next.

Nothing like taming a bull headed man. Meet Lily and Bull as they share the story of there life. Do they make it out of the friend zone?
