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.
Kitt and Apple are meant to be. Ridley, Kitt’s brother, might say otherwise but they are meant to be together. Apple Drew is definitely one of my most favorite Uncertain Saint. He is tough, with a crazy rough history, and a HUGE heart. I like that he knows that he has a rough history but doesn’t use it as an excuse for everything just for why he shouldn’t be with Kitt. Kitt is one of the toughest women with ties to the club. Her medical history keeps her on her toes but it does not define who she is. She also holds Apple accountable. She calls him out on his issues, keeps him in line, and doesn’t just forgive and forget. Kitt makes Apple win her over and pushes him to be the man he deserves to be.
I really liked the issues that Lani Lynn Vale put in this book. The medical problems and how they affect her pregnancy are realistic. The history of Apple is not the typical bad upbringing history there is just so much more to it. The brother/sister relationship was unique and expectedly over protective. This book just seemed more in the now and how the real world lives than other MC books I have read. I also liked that not everyone in the book was in trouble or having problems. Some people were just people with “normal” lives.
Bad Apple is my favorite book in this series by Lani Lynn Vale so far. I recommend reading this entire series but you should start with this one.
