Amy's 5 star ARC Review of Bad Apple (The Uncertain Saints MC Book 4) by Lani Lynn Vale

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.

This was a really great read of course … again. Apple and Kitt are one of a kind; two peas in a pod that needed snapped and allowed to open up. Knowing the story now and knowing that is Alex on the cover .. perfect ... amazing and inspiring. 

Ridley is keeping his sister under watch 24 – 7 to her dismay. Knowing he suffers after his wife passed Kitt tolerates her brother and of course loves him but sometimes he smothers her. The new prospect for his MC – the Uncertain Saints is perfect for a wild night of letting go. Little does she know is that one night of letting go turns into a commitment of something more. Living through her seizures is one thing but living through being alone and wishing for a man you can't have is another. 

Apple Drew knows Kitt is too good for him and so because of that he is going to stay away. His secrets could destroy the darkest of souls. No one needs to dance with his demons except him. 
I could not have been more drawn into Apple Drew’s character than I already was. A veteran of war, broken and suffering in the darkness alone … just heartbreaking because in a sense it’s a true story. These men and women are out there trying to find their way and looking for someone or something to hold them together when they can't do it alone. 

You need to grab this one up – all Lani’s books are standalones but this one is tremendous. It will open your eyes to the lights of what our soldiers go through. The story does have several and I mean numerous light hearted parts. Kitt doesn’t let her illness drive her she drives it. The air she brings into Apple’s life is astounding. 

You also get some insight into Ridley and what he's venturing out on. Wolf is there as well and there is a kicker there that you won't want to miss. I love it.

As always I loved the characters and the story. Thank you once again for the ARC. I cannot wait for the next release – Review to post to Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets.
