Publisher's Summary

We've all heard the saying, "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade," but what if the lemonade leaves a sour expression on your face? That’s what Dani wonders until the day she receives two perfect presents. Instead of letting life’s glitches set her back, Dani prevails.

Ryker had only one aspiration when he left his hometown eight years ago, to be prosperous, but that blew up in his face when the love of his life left town. He takes his glitches and turns them into meaningless encounters with nameless women to feel adequate.

Ryker and Dani bring new meaning to "keep your friends close and your enemies closer."

What happens when Ryker is faced with the reality he left behind? What happens when Dani is faced with her past and the people who turned their backs on her?

one of the calmer MC books

This is a really good story. The MC is more of a background group. The main characters are Dani and Ryker. 8 years prior Tyler joins the military without telling Dani and heads off to boot camp without a word. Dani finds out she is pregnant with twins and goes to his parents to get contact info from them. instead of giving her a number they treat her bad and call her names. Dani decides to leave Virginia and move back home to her family in Georgia.

Now 8 years later Dani has made a life for herself and the kids. Dani's cousin Trigger comes home from the military and brings a friend with him. Tyler is surprised to see Dani and even more surprised to learn he is a Daddy.

Can they work something out for the sake of the kids?

Dana Arden has done a great job on this story. I did think there would be more biker action since it is A MC series. But it was still worth listening too and I can't wait to get started on book 2. There is some sex and a lot of language but it is one of the calmer MC books I have read/listened to.

Lacy Laurel and Logan McAllister done a really good job with the narration. They kept my full attention all the way through. I finished this book in one setting.

I was given this book at my request and have left this review of my own choice.

Minor Glitches

“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

Overall I thought the book was good. A little rushed, I think it could've been a little longer to give the storyline a little more. I think Dani was way too forgiving when it came to Ryker, especially since there are children involved. I understand that everyone deserves a second chance but it was just way too quick & Ryker's parents don't tell him what they did? He doesn't try to find her? If he never stopped loving her why didn't he try to find her?

Great start to this series

Do not let the length of this story fool you, there is a lot going on, so come listen to this second chance romance! Dani and Ryker are childhood sweethearts. When Dani finds herself pregnant with twins, she goes to tell Ryker only to get a surprise of her life! She is on her own. When Dani's cousin Trigger, brings his friend home 8 years later, the two are reunited. But will they find their love has stood the test of time? There are many obstacles to overcome, a little suspense thrown in and a surprise in the end leaving me wanting more! Lacy Laurel and Logan McAllister narrate this fast moving romance, from the alpha men in the motorcycle club to the adorable young twins. I love these two together, they compliment each other well with their array of voices and have me looking for the next story in for this motorcycle club.

Short Story!

This is the first book in the Southern Chaotics's MC Series. This short story is fast-paced, with twists and turns and steamy scenes. The narration was well done. I love Lacy Laurel's voice, she's one of my favorite narrators. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

What a nice quick listen. This book is great if you don’t have a ton of time but still want to listen to a book that has all the emotions and drama you need. Definitely a recommended book. Starting the next one right now!

Dani's Awesone!

The characters are so important in a book, and in this one they were all well developed and felt real. However Dani was a real standout, her ability to forgive and move on is amazing, it was a highlight of the book for me. Ryker however I didn't like, he was kind of an arse, I can't figure out what Dani sees in him.

The chemistry between Dani and Ryker is hot, lots of sparks happening here.

I really enjoyed listening to it, it's fairly short, but there's nothing missing. The dual narration was great, excellent character voices and the tone and pacing worked well.

SUPER START, BUT TOO SHORT

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This is one of those stories that has me yelling, WTF? Just Tell him or her! But I know that’s what makes a story. A lot happens in this 3 hour prequel-ish audiobook. Characters are very well developed and love scenes are hot with no cheese. At under $5 it’s worth buying and using the credit for book two, Major Conflict!!

Lacy and Logan rocked the narrative. They’re a force majeure.

Two Thumbs Up!

Good Listen

Dani is raising her twins and now their father is in town and doesn't know about them. He thinks she left him and now has questions. Can he forgive the people that broke him and Dani apart and never told him about his children. Great second chance with a little danger involved. Great Narration.

Lost Teenage Love and A Kind and a loving Girl

18 year old Dani is deserted by Ryker when he joins the military without a word to her. a jump ahead 8 years and Dani moved to be with family and built a life on her own..a strong loving and compassionate woman.
Ryker joined the military and basically has been a douche for 8 years. Self absorbed, stupid and a manwhore.
The story is about forgiveness , which in my mind I don’t see how Dani could be so forgiving, especially when Ryker never does much to deserve it..obvious as to who is stronger, intelligent and worthwhile person of the two.
The beginning of a series the secondary characters are funny, interesting and stories ai’m looking forward to listening to.
Narrators did an good job, sometimes would like al bigger variation of the emotions by McAllister..Laurel did very well with her characters.
