Lights to My Siren by Lani Lynn Vale Blog Tour

You’re The Lights...
Sebastian had one rule.
No women on the back of his bike. Period.
The one time he broke that rule, he killed the woman that was carrying his child.
Then comes Baylee Roberts. She makes Sebastian want to break every single rule he’d ever implemented. Hell, but she even makes him consider that dreaded H word. A helmet.
To My...
Baylee Roberts innocently walked into her bathroom never expecting that she’d find a man in there. It is her bathroom after all, and she lives alone.
From the instant he placed his hat on her head to protect her from the sun, Baylee’s mind becomes filled with thoughts of a certain biker.
She really shouldn't go there. There’s no telling what kind of dangerous things he does for The Dixie Wardens MC.
Nothing is ever as easy as it should be. Their relationship’s one of them.
Baylee’s brother is a cop. Baylee’s father is a cop. Which inevitably means that Baylee’s going to have certain hang-ups about being with a man like himself.
Sebastian has a lot on his plate with his busy job as a firefighter, a single father, and the vice president of The Dixie Wardens MC.
Not enough, though, to keep him away from Baylee.
When a series of arsons rattle their hometown and puts Sebastian’s life on the line, Baylee finally realizes the only fire Sebastian can’t put out is the one inside her heart.


There were so many things I liked about this book and a few I didn't. First I feel like I need to get off my chest what I didn't like about the book. I felt like Sebastian was so off and on. He's an asshole, then he's nice. Then he's an asshole because he's mad. Now he's nice. He would share with her dad info about his life but not her. I mean come on Sebastian. No. Just no. Open up to your girl. And yes I know he fights with this decision later, but to me.. It should have been thought about far before that. My other issue is that if you didn't remember or read previous books, you may not know these other characters. Theyre relationship, free, who's who may not make sense. So it may be beneficial to have a family tree of sorts to help readers out. If you have read them, revisit so you remember who's who. I was super upset when he reacted by radio silence for 3 days. Not to mention how Luke just dropped the whole thing about his ex. He (Luke) never told his sister his thoughts on it, it just went away. It was never discussed in much detail. Also, why didn't he tell her the truth of what happened to his ex. He holds back so much of himself and when he's an asshole, he was an asshole at the worst of times. It's actually maddening for me to have to write that, that's how frustrating it was for me to read. I get why he was like that and why Lani wrote it that way. We need to see his growth and effort. But still, just down right frustrating. And when he finally did open up to her, we didn't get to see any of it. Just a tiny fly by that it happened and she needed to adjust and digest the info. But I don't feel like he really understood and even tried to understand her disease, he just jumped down her throat. Like I said, I get why he had to be that way, I don't like it. But i do. Not only that, the Tatiana chick- nothing ever came from her attitude issue either.

Now, moving on to why ultimately I thought it was still a good book. I loved his relationship with his kid and her with his kid. I also loved her relationship with Winter. I loved the relationship between the characters and the closeness of their jobs. I loved that even though Sebastian is in the MC, they all still have real jobs. I love the drama with the arson storyline and how both our characters factor in. I love that Baylee was. Strong independent woman. I feel like she lost some of that and became a little dependent on Sebastian. But still strong and independent most of the time. However, once they finally opened up to everything things got much much better, on both ends. There is crazy scary drama, and Lani scared the ever loving shit out of me with most of it, but it's well well worth it. And Lani is another writer who has this writing style that sucks you right into the book and you don't even notice how much time has gone by in a day while you're reading her story.

Ultimately I liked the book. It was good. Just maddening at times.
I give this book 3.5 hearts
