About the Book

Wanted: someone to hand feed me Doritos so my hands don’t get orange. No weirdos.


Belle Pena was an editor. Not a writer.


When her brothers challenge her to create a dating profile, she makes up the most random biography she can think of. She never, not ever, thought she’d find anybody to respond. But she was sorely mistaken.


Sadly, she finds that she has way more interest than she ever could’ve imagined.


But only one profile catches her eye.


Bruno never meant to take the dating app seriously. Being the last single man in his band of misfits, he’s happy being the odd man out. Women spelled trouble, and he had enough trouble in his life to last him through the next decade.


Only his newfound family doesn’t feel the same. One innocent ‘sure’ has the women of the Souls Chapel Revenants MC creating him a dating profile that is too spot on to be comfortable. And just when he decides to delete the app entirely, a particular face catches his eye.


One innocent question of ‘Belle is that you? Do you remember punching me in the throat in high school?’ has him stepping into trouble neck deep, and he doesn’t even realize it until it’s too late.

 Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Shakedown is the eighth book in the Souls Chapel Revenants MC series by Lani Lynn Vale. This series is so good and I’m very sad it’s over, but I loved every minute of it. She saved Bruno for last. The sexy, brooding, scary dude who we don’t really know much about. He had a hard childhood and has been living with a lot of demons from his past. He doesn’t want to date or be happy, but Six knows he needs a good woman in his life. An online profile brings him Belle Pena(we know her brothers and family!) She turns him down, but when they randomly meet in person they feel an instant chemistry. Belle has to have things a certain way. She doesn’t like to be touched, needs soft fabrics, her IQ is extremely high, and she has never been able to find anyone who gets her. Until Bruno. He just seems to sense what she needs before she tells him. But she’s happy to tell him exactly what she needs. When he’s almost killed, she steps in, claims him as her own and they need to hide out together and find out what happened to him. Bruno wakes up from his accident and can’t remember anything but he knows Belle is his. She talks a lot, he mostly grunts and uses one word responses and neither of them is bothered by the other’s quirks. They just get each other. Shakedown is one of my favorites of the series! Their chemistry was off the charts! I laughed, got hot and bothered and just really loved them. I loved how we got to see all Bruno’s friends and Belle’s family and Lani wraps up the series for us. I’m sad it’s over, but I know Lani has something up next that I’m going to love too!
