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.
“Jack and Coke is a must read for fans of romantic suspense with a whole lot of competent humor mixed in, and a romance that's so real and raw that you can't help but relate to the characters and their struggles.” ~Literary Treasure Chest
“WOW! A totally engrossing, beautiful, hot love story! I have read every book by Ms. Vale and with each book she gets better and better, she has a gift for drawing you in and holding you captive.” ~Guilty Pleasures
I am a huge fan of Lani's work, if she writes it I will buy it, probably without reading the blurb!
Jack & Coke is book 2 in the Uncertain Saint's series and while it can be read as a standalone I'd highly recommend reading this and any of her series in order.
Mig's story was heart breaking and made me want to hurt a skank, I can't say I've ever wanted to see someone hit a pregnant woman and I do not condone violence against women but I'm certain had someone slapped this crap outta his wife I would have had a hard time not smiling like I was watching Magic Mike live.
Jennifer is his vindictive wife, who happens to be carrying his baby.
This b**ch was something else, the horrific things she did and put Mig through to get herself attached to him were bad enough but then she had to mess with Annie on top of all that.
Nope, not telling you what she did, just know that this whore has to be the worst of the worst.
Mig did what he thought was right in order to get the only thing he wants from Jennifer, his baby.
While he's trapped in a loveless marriage he falls for someone else, someone who lives next door to him and is an easy target for Jennifer to spew her evil at.
Annie's recently divorced from a real prick. She's got her business and her friends, as well as a crush on her next door neighbor. A neighbor she has no right drooling over since he's a married man.
(I have no tolerance for cheating spouses but that's not how this goes down so relax!!)
Annie's got problems she doesn't know about until Mig shows up to protect her, and once his protective instincts kick in you may as well sit down an hang on for the ride because he's not backing down.
Luckily for Annie he's that kind of man, otherwise she may have lost her life.
But it also brings Mig to the realization that he can never be the man for Annie, even without Jennifer in the picture his life is just too dangerous to involve her in so he backs away.
Two hard headed people butt heads more than once, both for what they want and fighting against it. I loved them both even though I did want to smack some sense into Mig a time or two!
Jack & Coke is another great read from one of my favorite authors.
