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.
Great characters and love that different hobby’s were present. Loved their connection!
Bayou has stolen my heart! I loved him and Phoebe so hard. I love all of LLV’s books but this one might be my favorite by far. It was a beautiful read and I’m sad it’s over. I wish I could read it again for the first time. Lani never disappoints ❤️
I have been dying for Bayou’s story for what feels like forever, the forever part is mainly because I’m an impatient brat, but still, BAYOU! SQUEEEEEEE! There is just so much to love in this book. From a unique hero bringing a new level of diversity to Lani’s books to some serious swoon and that fantastic sarcasm that Lani does so well that keeps you giggling. As usual with Lani Lynn Vale’s writing I was utterly captivated the moment I opened this book and devoured it in one sitting. Bayou and Phoebe are definitely one of my all time favorite couples!
I have a laundry list of reasons to love Bayou, but I’ll try to condense that before I reach the point of making a song to praise his perfection. Bayou is a man who more than simply overcomes hardships. With strength well beyond physical he thrives despite life throwing him so many curveballs. Along with that Lani really gives a beautiful example of different, not less than with him which is something I think many people will not only love as much as I do, but also maybe open eyes for people who have never met anyone like Bayou.
Beyond all of that he’s also a man with a heart bigger than even he realizes. There were moments with him where he was so heart achingly sweet I felt like I was just going to burst from swoon overload. Then there’s Phoebe, accepting Bayou exactly as he is from the moment they meet and loving him unconditionally. These two have a soul deep connection that just steals your heart.
