Take out the fans ladies - the sexy times in this book are explosive!
I was so excited to receive an ARC of Lani in exchange for an honest review. I’ve been waiting for this book since Lani and her men were introduced in her brother’s book Techy, and this book did not disappoint. It was so worth the wait. Lani is the 6th instalment of Ashers’ Devil Souls MC series. It can be read as a standalone, but my advice, if you really want to get the whole effect, is to read her books in order of publication date. They all exist in the same universe and there are a ton of cameos by previous characters, so it’s great to experience it the way the author intended. But, if you want to just start with Lani, that’s okay too.
Lani is a plus sized model in LA. She has some trouble with a stalker and so returns home to Texas where her parents live. She is through with modelling and wants to plan out her next step in life. Before she can really make any big decisions, she meets Trey and Vinny, two men in her brother Techy’s MC. It is definitely lust at first sight but there are also some deeper feelings that lead Lani to accept their offer to go home with them - and not just for the night. Hey, why not? Would you really say no if two extremely hot men asked you to be with them? What if they also offered you their protection - from stalkers, from fans, and from rabid religious folk who don’t like the idea of a thrupple? Yes, I used that term - deal with it.
Lani moves to Raleigh where Trey, Vinny and her brother live. What I loved about this book is that, although she faces some resentment and disgust by some of the people she meets who don’t like the idea of a woman with two men, men who also happen to be in a relationship together, Lani’s brother and parents and the other members of the MC are completely accepting. Her brother, who has always been protective of her, doesn’t even question the fact that she goes to live with two of his friends. It was so refreshing to see! I found the romance very sweet as well. It is not just about Lani being adored by two men. The three of them care about each other. We see how protective Trey is in regards to both Lani and Vinny. They are all three great characters. And although there is the element of Lani’s stalker to worry about, we also get into Vinny’s complicated past which causes problems and threats of its own.
I found the book exciting to read - I could hardly put it down. And boy oh boy, is it steamy. As far as I know, this is LeAnn’s first foray into threesome territory and I really hope she writes more! I laughed, I cried, but most of all, I enjoyed this book. I really think you will too. Thank you to @leann_ashers and @heaprmore for the ARC. Lani is set to release on December 8th.
