Title: One Chance, Fancy
author: Lani Lynn Vale
Series: The Bear Bottom Guardians MC Book 5
Release: January 15, 2019
Benson Bayou Beauregard is the president of the Bear Bottom Guardians MC, and the grandson of the Sergeant at Arms for the Dixie Wardens MC. He’s a mountain of a man and the warden of a prison, and there’s only one thing that can scare him—being told that he’s the father of a three-year-old little girl.
A three-year-old little girl that has no clue who he is. Hell, he only finds out about the little cherub when a woman from child protective services comes by and rocks his world before leaving the girl in his shocked arms.
Every single thing he thinks he knows goes up in a cloud of smoke.
To make matters worse, the woman that he’s been trying to convince to give him a chance takes one look at the little girl and tells him that he’s just not in the right place to handle both of them.
But Bayou was never one to back down from a challenge.
He can handle a three-year-old girl that acts exactly like him, and he can more than take on the fiery red-head that sets flame to his blood while he’s at it.
I knew going in that I was going to like this book because I have liked everything the author has written. What I was not expecting was how much I was going to like it … I LOVED IT! The main characters, Bayou and Phoebe, have been introduced and appeared in various books through not only the Bear Bottom MC series, but also the Freebirds series (at least with Phoebe), so I already went in knowing the characters and the players. But I didn’t expect how much I was going to enjoy Bayou’s quirks and Phoebe’s sass.
I think I that I was more drawn to Bayou’s character in this book. What he went through and the situations that he finds himself in through this story really made me empathize with him more. And I really got a kick out of the way that he acted at times, especially with the hawk. He has a sense of humor, but it is hidden away most times and I don’t think the other characters see it, but with Phoebe he didn’t have to try to act normal around her. And his daughter! OMG she is a chip off of the old block and my second favorite character in this story.
Overall, LOVED the book. The characters were interesting, and frankly refreshing. There are a few that I would love to throat punch (and one clearly needs it by the end). The emotional impact of the book was nice and level. There is a smidge of danger that pepper’s the pages, but not much. Angst is definitely kept down in this story as compared to some of the author’s other works, but that is what makes his one so good. So for me … two thumbs up and happy reading!!
