Mig’s wife is a bitch.
How else do you describe a woman that lies, cheats and steals to get what she wants?
That’s exactly what happens when she traps him into a marriage he wants nothing to do with, saddling him with a kid that he knows doesn’t deserve to be in a world like his.
He’s doing a pretty bang-up job at ignoring everything but his responsibilities as a DEA officer and a member of The Uncertain Saints MC.
Then his neighbor knocks on his door, and everything he thought he knew is blown out the window.
Annie teaches Mig that not every woman is out to get him.
Her love for Mig stretches past what’s appropriate for two friends, and Annie soon straddles that invisible boundary between appropriate and inappropriate.
Annie’s not a cheater, though.
When she tries to say goodbye, Mig won’t let her leave, and soon the tiny town of Uncertain blows up with the news of Annie and Mig’s innocent friendship.
Matters of the heart are foreign to Mig, and it takes Annie being gutted for him to see the wrong he’s done.
He waits too long, though, and Annie’s heart is broken.
She wants it all, or she wants nothing. She can’t take anymore half-hearted attempts at being just friends.
The heart wants what it wants, and it doesn’t take long for Mig to realize that.
But just when Mig finally has it all in the palm of his hand, his life is ripped to shreds by a new player in the game, and it takes all of Annie’s love and devotion, as well as help from the men of The Uncertain Saint’s MC, to put Mig back together again.
Lani Lynn Vale proves with each book why she is one of the queens of romance. Her books always give the reader what they expect; romance, sexiness, suspense, and an incredible story. Her Uncertain MC series is a little different than her previous books. I find the series to be a little dirtier than her other books. That's not a bad thing. It's actually a good thing, a very good thing.
This book is Mig and Annie's book. Mig is stuck in a relationship that he doesn't want to be in. Circumstances put Mig in an unwanted marriage. Because he is an honorable man, he wants to do the right thing, since his wife is pregnant. But Mig wants Annie and Annie wants Mig. He makes the decision to pursue what he wants and that is Annie. Things are not going exactly as planned. His soon to be ex wife is making their life miserable and some bad guys are trying to keep them apart. In true Ms. Vale fashion, the characters have a struggle ahead of themselves. There is lots of suspense and build up that leaves you hanging on till the very end.
I love how Vale finds a way to interconnect each series. If you remember from Coupe de Grâce, the child who survived the attacks on pregnant women? We get an update on him in this book. He's currently in the custody of Wolf, a member of the MC. It surprises me each time how Vale can connect all of the series and keep track of them all.
Like all of her other books, you don't have to read the whole series to understand what is going on. When a book series is this amazing, why skip books? A definite must read for those looking for something good to read.
