Title: Bad Apple
Series: The Uncertain Saints MC
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: MC Romance
The road to hell is paved with good intentions… Apple “Core” Drew needs The Uncertain Saints MC like he needs air. He is barely making it through the day, and each one that goes by takes him closer and closer to hell. Literally, not figuratively. He’s a half breath away from killing himself—maybe not by taking his own life, but he’s not against making someone else do it for him. Then he meets her. One of his club member’s sister, and his whole outlook on life changes. And not for the better. Just as surely as he ruined his life, he ruins her life, too. One lapse in judgement on his part, and his one night of happiness turns into the worst nine months of his life. Which he would’ve thought was damn near impossible with the things he’s done and seen. She never saw it coming… It was the beard. The beard made her do it. That is a good excuse for having sex with a man she barely knows, isn’t it? Yeah, who was she kidding? It wasn’t the beard. It was the way he looked so dejected and solemn. The sad look in his eyes pulls her in, and the way his rough hands touch her makes her stay. All she wants to do is take that look out of his eyes, but the consequences to her actions only make things worse, not better. One day is all she gets, and he’s not willing to give her more. Until she dies, that is. Then it’s too late.
Vale brings us the story of Kitt and Core. Core is troubled and is dealing with the aftermath of war. He joins the Uncertain Saints as a way to keep him sane. Core never intended on finding love. He feels that his life is too messed up for it. When Kitt stumbles into his life, all bets are off. For Kitt, she doesn't see the darkness that he carries around. She just see the good man underneath it all. Their relationship is unconventional and rocky at times but it's a romance that you must read.
I think this book has to be my favorite, so far, from this series. You are so drawn into Core's story, you're rooting for him to find his HEA.
Kitt is exactly what Core needs, someone to push him past his limits. She helps him to see that he isn't the broken man he thought he was. Together they find the happiness they are both searching for.
I love this series. The Uncertain Saints are a band of misfits who have one thing in common, life dealt them a shitty hand. Their stories are emotional and Vale does a fantastic job in bringing them to life on the page. They are definitely worth reading.
