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.
After a heartbreaking, life changing, event with his best friend years ago, Apple is a man carrying around a lot of guilt in his head. Kitt, whose been plagued by a serious health condition all her life, is treated like the little girl who's going to break any moment by her brother and all she wants is to live and feel. One night they both come together and shed their demons and both their lives change forever. Apple doesn't believe he's worthy of what Kitt can offer him, but Kitt won't give up the fight.
As always, I was really excited to have a new book release by Lani. Honestly, it doesn't matter which series she releases something new in, I'm thrilled. However, this book didn't grab me like all her others. I didn't hate it, but I just didn't love it either. I can only describe it as "choppy". Like there were too many things going on and glazed over and there were large lapses in time that were jumped over. It just felt confusing to me. Maybe rushed would be a better description. So on that note, I will say I give this book 3.5 stars.
