~*~ New Release and Review ~*~ Counter To My Intelligence by Lani Lynn Vale

Title: Counter To My Intelligence
Series: The Heroes of the Dixie Wardens MC #7
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Adult, Motorcycle Club Romance
Release Date: January 6, 2016
Sometimes the heart wants what it can’t have.
That’s the motto Silas Mackenzie, the president of The Dixie Wardens MC, has lived by since he was a young man.
Now he’s well on the way to middle age, has three grown children, and he’s lusting after a woman he should definitely stay away from.
Especially not one that his ex-girlfriend had given birth to, and happened to be only twenty seven years old.
Sawyer isn’t a young girl at heart, though.
She’s seen the inside of a jail cell for eight long years, and every one of them she spent paying for a crime she didn’t commit.
Silas Mackenzie knows as soon as he sees her that the girl has sacrificed enough.
And maybe…just maybe…so has Silas.
It’s time for Silas Mackenzie to get what he deserves, and put a little bit of happy back into Sawyer’s world, one rough, bearded kiss at a time.

Lani Lynn Vale, thank you for writing Silas' book. It was everything thing I would want and then some. Fans of this series know that Silas was the most mysterious character in the series. Second to him is Dixie Normous, aka Santa Claus. :)  I am so glad that Silas got this book. Since book one, this character has piqued my interest. We all know that he is ex CIA but we didn't know much about that. Well get prepared because we are getting the full story. 

Silas is older but he is a sexy older. Silas knows he is hot and owns it. But there is much more to him than just his good looks. He has a past that haunts him. His job with the CIA has created enemies for him and they are trying to take everything he cares about away from him. I've always viewed Silas as a badass but in this book we see a softer side, one that shows his vulnerability. He meets Sawyer and he sees a chance at happiness again. I loved his scenes with her. He helps to bring her back to the person she once was. Sawyer had a pretty good life up until one night took it all away. She has lived with the consequences of a crime she didn't commit until Silas comes along. He is determined to prove the world that they are wrong about Sawyer and that she didn't do anything wrong. These two are perfect for one another and I am so glad Vale finally gave Silas a book. 

Vale is my go to author for a guaranteed fantastic book. Everything she writes has emotion, humor, and suspense. It's enough to keep the reader on the edge of their seats. As I've said, I've looked forward to this book since Silas first stepped foot on the page. I wasn't disappointed, the story was everything I expected and more. I'm not sure how Vale does it, creating multiple interlocking series and they all are different and so good. Whatever she does, I hope she keeps doing it. I look forward to more books in the future from her. Her books are must reads. 

My Rating:
5 out of 5 Stars

“I like your vest.”

“It’s called a cut,” he muttered laughingly.

“What’s a cut?” I asked.

The hail and rain got worse, hitting the roof and the side of the garage like tiny little battering rams.

“A leather vest,” he quipped.

I giggled against his chest, turning my face so it could rest against his neck.

He growled when I kissed his exposed throat, but otherwise didn’t move.

“Joking aside, it’s my club. The cut is me. The top rocker, which is the white banner at the top, is our club name,” he said.

I felt along his back as he spoke, feeling what he was saying as he explained what each one was.

“The bottom rocker is our club’s location. We’re in Benton. We have other chapters all over the south,” he explained. “On the front is my name, club title, and the city again.”

I knew he was explaining this to me to get my mind off the fact that the roof was shaking around us, literally.

“I can’t believe Dallas hasn’t at least come to check on me,” I muttered darkly.

He tangled my hands in my hair, and I looked up at him…or where I thought he was.

“Your brother is a shit head. And I don’t think he even realizes that he is. Because if he did, he wouldn’t be telling your parents anything about how you were. My guess is that he really is worried, but he doesn’t know how to handle that worry. So, he closes himself off, telling himself that by telling your mother how he thinks you’re doing, he’s helping. Which, in reality, he’s not,” Silas said. “Maybe it’s time you had a talk with him, let him know you don’t appreciate being treated as a child.”

I agreed, and I’d already planned on doing that.

“I was going to do that today, but then he had that huge freakin’ party,” I told him darkly. “And I had to park in the street.”

He lowered his mouth down to mine.

“Well, then it’s a good thing he’s preoccupied, because right about now I could really fuck you on top of his car and he’d never even know,” he said tightly, lifting my body off the bench and laying me down on the car’s hood.

I laughed. “You know,” I said as he stripped my shorts from me. “This is my brother’s pride and joy.”

“Well your brother’s pride and joy is about to become our fuck stand,” he growled, then he was on me.
I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
