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.
Bad Apple - book 4 in the Uncertain Saints MC could be read as a standalone but I highly recommend reading them all in order.
Apple "Core" Drew is closed off. He's surviving each day, barely, living with guilt and the MC is the thing that saves him. It gives him that tiny bit of hope, something to keep him going.
He has a tortured past that makes waking up each day a painful experience and making it through each day tough. Prospecting for the Uncertain Saints has given him purpose, an outlet, something other than constantly reliving his past.
Kitt has her own struggles. Living with an illness that causes her brother to be more than over protective, he babies and virtually smothers the heck out of his baby sister.
Kitt & Core have alot in common, their bother pretty broken people and in most cases you need one person to save the broken hero/heroine but in this case these two are just what the other needs.
Things seem to be going great until one little slip up pushes Core away. He can't be the reason Kitt's life is ruined, he refuses to be the man that destroys her. Little does he know staying away does more to hurt her than being by her side ever could.
When danger comes into Kitt's life will Core be around to save her?
I can never truly express how much I love these books. All the MC members are broken or tortured in some way and their stories at times break your heart but their brothers are always there to save them from themselves, to get them through whatever they face one day at a time. Then you throw in the unbelievable women and this series will have you addicted from the first book.
Apple gets 5 stars, he's a truly amazing man to move on and become what his family needs after all he'd been through.
