Talkin’ Trash by Lani Lynn Vale Review



Linc has two very important things on his mind—professional football and his motorcycle club.

What he does not have on his mind is the woman that drives him crazy and makes him want to do stupid things, like throw caution to the wind.

Nope, not Linc.

At least, that’s the lie he tells everyone.

In reality, every time Conleigh’s name is mentioned, he squirms.

She’s everything that he wants, wrapped up in a cute little package that is stamped ‘hands freakin’ off.’

She’s four years younger than him, in school to be a doctor, and thinks football is stupid.

Even more, Linc and Conleigh get along like oil and water.

There’s not a single second that they’re in each other’s presence that they’re not at each other’s throats.

But all it takes is hearing that she’s in trouble for Linc to drop every single thing—football and MC duties alike—and head to her side.

A side that he’ll remain at until they either kill each other, or finally give into the heat between them.

Either way you look at it, he’s well and truly screwed.



Talkin’ Trash is the second book in the Bear Bottom Guardians MC series by Lani Lynn Vale. Like a majority of Lani’s other books, this one stems from another series. This series isn’t necessarily a spin-off of the Heroes of the Dixie Wardens series, it’s more like an expansion on that series. But with each new book Lani releases, she builds upon those worlds, further developing her characters, and the result for her readers has been a very distinct, unique-to-Lani reading experience. What’s most impressive, though, is that she’s managed to craft her stories in such a way that new readers can start up at any point, and they’ll be able to ease in from that series onward.

The first book in the series, Mess Me Up, was a gut-wrenching and emotional story, and while Talkin’ Trash definitely packed in the feels, it definitely wasn’t a heart-breaking storyline. Vale puts her own spin on a teenage crush coming to life several down the road in this book. With one of her creative suspense plots playing out in the background, Lani gives Conleigh and Linc a sexy romance peppered with plenty of her own brand of humor. Entertaining, amusing and totally engrossing, Vale’s writing never fails to captivate me and hold my attention as I devour her words. Another great story in another winning series from Vale has left me longing for the next book. Five smooches from me for Talkin’ Trash by Lani Lynn Vale!
