Wade had everything he could ever want in life…then he lost it.
Now, his life—his forever girl—is living in a house he built for her while he’s struggling to move on and find meaning where there isn’t any to be found.
Landry Hill was his girl. his everything. His high school sweetheart. His first kiss. His first and only love. His old lady and wife
Then one day he does something monumentally stupid. And she walks away knowing she’ll never come back.
Fast forward five years, and he’s still just as in love with her now as he was when she left. The only problem is that she’s moved on with her life, found a new man, and seemingly forgotten him. Then there’s Wade—stuck in the same awful place where she abandoned him. The only thing he has left is his job as a police office and the Bear Bottom MC.
Just when they both think things can’t get any worse, life kicks them both in the teeth, and Landry finds out really quick that the only person she can depend on is the one that let her walk away.
With understanding comes a deal. One that Landry has no hope of ever breaking free from, and one Wade will do everything in his power to make a reality.
But one thing is still certain. The force that split them apart is still out there. And there’s no hope of escaping fate.

Once again Lani Lynn Vale has managed to write a book that blows all others out of the water with How About No. Her ability to delivery a story that is distinctly unique but also still brings out all the magic and emotion just like every book of hers I’ve ever read never fails to amaze me. I started this thinking I’d read for a bit then actually get some adulting done but instead I sat unmoving for hours completely captivated by Landry and Wade’s story.
Landry was yet again another character from Lani who I wish was real just so I could be her friend. She’s sassy and sweet but also unbelievably strong along with having such a huge heart. I adored everything about her! Wade took me from wanting to kick him to absolutely loving him through the course of this book. The man definitely knew how to mess up big. But his deep love for Landry along with his sexy alpha man ways quickly won me over and had me swooning.
I definitely didn’t see any of the jaw dropping moments that these two hit me with coming while I was reading. Landry and Wade both are amazing people individually but together they will totally steal your heart. With Landry’s heartbreaking past and choices that Wade made previously, unknowing how wrong they were these two had some major hurdles to overcome. But the love between them is so fierce and never ending its enough to overcome anything.

How About No is one of LLV’s that’s going to crush you completely but put you back together again with a nice bow on top. Gah, I have never yelled so much at a couple than I have these two. Wade pissed me off. Landry pissed me off. So many times. I just wanted to smack both of them, but I understood the struggles they both went through so that helped the rage I had at both of them. Landry has not really lived a life. She never got the chance to be a regular kid or a regular teen. Her life was dictated for her. Wade on the other hand grew up in a great family. When Landry’s past catches up to her, Wade makes a huge mistake.
As much as I raged at Wade and Landry, I loved them. They were some of the best characters LLV has written. Wade with his protective and sweet nature and Landry with her nurturing and tough nature meshed so well together. These two and their struggles and triumphs will have you hooked. Somehow each book LLV writes gets better than the last and Wade and Landry’s story was no exception.
