He knows that pain makes you stronger…

Wolf isn’t always a good person, and he doesn’t hesitate to say what’s on his mind.

He is who he is, and he doesn’t offer apologies.

He isn’t out to impress anyone, and he doesn’t make excuses for his actions.

She knows that fear makes you braver…

Raven has made some bad decisions, and she’d give anything to go back in time and choose a different path.

The reality is that she can’t go back, and the day Wolf walks into her life, she finally realizes that maybe she doesn’t want to.

Wolf is everything she’s ever wanted, and the exact opposite of what she needs.

They both know heartbreak makes you wiser…

Wolf knows that this is not a good idea. There are a million reasons—all of them bad—telling him exactly why he should stay away.

But when Raven’s nightmares burst out of her dreams and into her reality, he doesn’t have a choice anymore.

He has to protect her, while somehow protecting his battered heart.

OMG, it feels like I’ve been waiting for this book since for-freaking-ever – ok, not really true since Lani Lynn Vale is a writing super machine, LOL -, but ever since Wolf was first mentioned in Michael’s book, Coup de Grace, my curiosity was awaken, and from that moment on every time he was mentioned in the any of her other books, even if only in passage my expectation for his story raised another level! Let me tell you now that the wait was more than worth it because Wolf is all that and SO much more! And Raven… She’s just as fantastic!

Raven has been living in a nightmare for what it seems her whole life, but when she was kidnapped, tortured and raped by a man she thought she could trust, she was left completely shattered and with no hope for a better future.

I was beyond broken.
I was crushed.
There was nothing that could put me back together again.

So when she was rescued from her tortured hell by a dark and handsome man, seeing at her lowest, and treating her with all the care and affection in the world, she saw him as her savior, her hero. 

Wolf was my game changer. He was the man I would forever compare all future men to.

And he was all that and more to her, and even in her fragile state, in every way, she felt the deep connection between themselves. Not even all the pain and hurt her body and soul had suffered at the hands of their capture could erase they magnetism. 

Wolf had been my dream come true—the one thing I never thought I’d be able to have.

Wolf was everything I ever wanted, and the one thing I didn’t think I deserved.

Of course that for more than one reason, as him being taken and she feeling she didn’t deserve him, made her step away and leave Uncertain. What she hadn’t yet realized was that her feeling weren’t one sided, and Wolf was as in deep as she was, and that his relationship was not exactly what it may seem (not revealing too much so that I don’t spoil it, lol), and that maybe he was also giving her time to recover her strength and heal, after her attack.

Wolf… Wow… He was just as fantastic as I’d hoped for! After his brutal attack where he was shot in the head, he took on the role of his best friend’s orphaned son like he was his own, which make us all melt. His interactions with little Nathan was so heart warning that make our ovaries explode!

But because of his past, his upbringing and what he had to do in his job and his club, he doesn’t feel worthy of anything as beautiful and pure as Raven, to whom he was instantly attracted from even the very first glance in those horrible circumstances. For that he tried to support her in every way he could through her recovery journey, which brought them even closer. What he didn’t expect was for her to leave just when he decided she well enough, and that maybe it was time to step up and take a risk, because their attraction was to great to ignore.

When he finally finds her, even though accidentally, he isn’t letting go and soon they bodies and hearts show them just how fated they are, and how good they help each other heal.

“I am a bad person,” he started. “But you make me want to be a better person.”

Their feelings and relationship development were beautifully written by Lani Lynn Vale, and I adored how in depth she took us into their thoughts, theirs fears, their passion – and boy did they have passion, because their sex scenes were off-the-charts HOT –  and their love. I really fell in love right along with them! <3

I’d never felt anything like this pure, unaltered passion. This passion we had for each was something that would never, ever fade.

In true Lani Lynn Vale fashion we don’t get just the amazing relationship development! We get plenty of true enrapturing suspense in the side plot, a lot of looks into the previous MC characters, which is always incredibly satisfying, but what I really adore, and not many authors do it with this naturality, are those incredible and hilarious snippets! I can’t get enough of them! And of course Rusty Nail was full of them, and sizzling beard-related comments! Come on who doesn’t love those?! 

If I could make his beard into my lucky rabbit’s foot and hang it from my keychain, you wouldn’t find my hand empty with all the good luck rubbing I’d be doing.

His beard tickled my chest, and I refused to react, even though everything inside of me urged me to stroke his beard.
Damn his magical bearded powers against my hormones!

It really was a fantastic book with everything Lani Lynn Vale does best, and the perfect ending for the series, – not really written in stone, because according to the author we may have more Uncertain Saints at some point – and even more, the perfect closure for a year of incredible LLV books with more than TWELVE books, – fourteen to be exact – more than one a month!!! How stunning is that?! Now, for the New Year, as a unmoving Lani Lynn Vale über fan, I can only hope she keeps them coming, because I need my Lani fix!!! They are ADDICTIVE!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Every time you even seem like you’re forgetting me, I’m going to show you, just like I’m about to do, just what you’ll be missing by me not being there. I’m going to give you everything I have to give, and then I’m going to pull out more. I’m going to drown you in me, and make it physically impossible for you to ever leave me.” He lifted my hips and lined his cock up with my entrance. “You’re mine just as I’m yours, and I’ll never let you forget that. Not for the next hundred years.”

“You mean just as much to me, you know,” I whispered to him, looking over my shoulder so he could see the sincerity in my eyes. “There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t fall more in love with you than I was the day before.”

June Mayson and Evan Barrister’s whirlwind courtship resulted in a secret marriage right before he left for boot camp. Evan knows deep in his gut that June is too good for him, but after getting a taste of the beautiful life they can have together, he’s unwilling to let her go. June promises to wait for him, knowing neither time or distance will ever change her feelings for Evan—that is until she’s served with divorce papers while he’s overseas and she’s forced to let him go.

Her marriage and divorce a well-kept secret, the last person June expects to run into when she moves back to her hometown is Evan. Angry over the past, she does everything within her power to ignore the pull she feels whenever he is near. But how can she ignore the pain she sees every time their eyes meet? How can she fight the need to soothe him even if she knows she’s liable to get hurt once again?

Is it possible for June and Evan to find their way back to each other again? Or will they be stopped by an outside force before they ever have a shot?




Seeing Evan again is taking a toll on me, I can’t sleep and my mind is in a constant state of turmoil. I wake up in the middle of the night from dreams of us. The memories of him, of us are too much. Some memories have the ability to heal. The ability to light up the dark because the beauty of the memory is so bright you’re still able to bask in it.

But the memories of us are killing me slowly. They remind me that for one moment I had everything while reminding me it’s gone. It’s the realization that we’re done that’s killing me. The realization that I can see him but can’t touch him that he exist but he’s not mine is agonizing.


He’s beautiful his body is a work of art I want to touch him, I want to know what It feels like to have his bearded face against my delicate skin, I want to know if the rough edges I now see are smooth to the touch.

“June.” My name in his course tone gets my attention but when our eyes meet its not anger he’s looking at me with, its raw, powerful, hungry possessiveness.



Header Until June

June and Evan have a past together, one that barely no one in her family is aware about. 

From the very first moment they met, they knew they had found their other half. They lived a secret whirlwind romance, got married and made plans for their future. What they were not counting on was the aftermath of Evan being in the heart of a war. Coupled with his already existing demons,  it made Evan push June away in the most final of ways. Or so they thought…

Coming back to your hometown and having to see the man who broke your heart, is the last thing June wants to deal with. But having him as her security detail is her very own private hell. 

When two people that have this repressed volcanic chemistry between them have to be in close proximity, things are bound to explode at some point, and they such did! 😉

June was such an amazing character, strong, sassy, the perfect balance of sweet and spice. And being the daughter of Asher and November, how could she not?

Like it happened with most of her family, she felt that Evan was The One for her, her BOOM, from the very start.

It was the fact that when I was with him, I knew it was where I belonged. Right down to my bones, I knew that, I was meant to be his and he was meant to be mine.

But then he destroyed her without a chance to repair, and after so much suffering she decided to heal, and try to move on. 

Second chance story aren’t really my favorite genre, because I get to nervous on how I will feel in the regards of the couples’ love, especially in the time of the separation, but here, Aurora Rose Reynolds worked it in the most perfect way. Yes, June tried to move on – something that normally it bothers me immensely in my romance reads – but in this story, it didn’t disturb me in the least. Actually quite the opposite, given the hurt Evan caused and the terminal way he ended things, I was happy that June didn’t remain pinning for him, and tried to go on with her life. But her feelings for him could never be erased that easily, if ever…

Teaser 1 Until June

Evan was a true ARR’s alpha, and I adored him! And in this book he was PERFECT! Yes, he made an huge mistake in the past, ending their relationship even if he didn’t see another way, at the time, but in the present, once he realizes that he was wrong in more ways than one, which happens in the very beginning of this book, he fights with EVERYTHING he has to win back June and her love because never once, since they met, did the stop loving her.

She wasn’t important—she was fucking vital, the best thing that ever happened to me.

I can’t tell you how incredible this character was, you have to read for yourselves and find out, and I promise you will enjoy every second of it! 

Boy, oh boy, did this man do good grovel. June put up a fight and protected her feelings and emotions with herculean effort, but never once did Evan hesitate. He even told her as much,

I’ll always love you enough for the both of us. Always.

“I have enough love for the both of us. Doesn’t matter if you love me back. I’m not giving you space or room. You’re mine, June. You have been for a long fucking time and I want what we could have had to start now.”

This man had me swooning and sighing all throughout the story, and his love, loyalty, and devotion for June were unmovable, and one of the main reasons for which this particular second chance read worked so well for me. He was one of the best male MCs I have had the pleasure of reading.

Teaser 2 Until June

Another enrichment factor to this story were the amazing secondary character, and especially her parents, Asher and November. I had almost forgotten how much I love them. 😉

“If you need someone to talk to, I’m here, and if not, your mom doesn’t love you as much as I do, but I’m sure she’d hear you out too.”

But in Evan’s case, it’s proven more than once that blood is not the most important thing in a relationship, as he beautifully says.

Some people have the same blood running through their veins, but that blood doesn’t mean shit at the end of the day. When shit went down for you, I didn’t once think of calling my blood. I called my brothers. And the minute I did, they rolled out. That’s loyalty. That’s love and respect. That’s a bond stronger than blood.

I was so happy with these characters, but Evan really was my favorite, I couldn’t get tired of his brand of alpha sweetness.

“Are you crazy?” I ask when I find my voice.

“Was crazy for a while, baby. I also couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t even fucking take a breath. Three days ago, I finally took a breath, and since then, I’ve been breathing easy. So no, baby, I’m not crazy.”

And since it was coupled with an extraordinary dirty mouth, I understood how June couldn’t resist him. No sane woman could! He was sex personified, which combined with their chemistry created truly off-the-charts, sizzling HOT, sex scenes. This man was insatiable!!!

So beware you may need more than one cold shower throughout the read!

Teaser 3 Until June

Aurora Rose Reynolds is one of my all time favorite authors, and this book is the living proof of the reason why I love and buy all her books.   Until June is the perfect cocktail of a sweet romance story, a pure ARR hot alpha man, a strong female MC, some amazing side characters – that get you hooked for the upcoming books – and enough spice and heat to warm an entire town during winter. She abundantly delivers us the most beautiful love story, with the most anticipated wrapping, the perfect HEA.

“The man I was didn’t deserve you. He didn’t even deserve to breathe the same air as you. But I do. I’m not the man I was then, and I vow, every day until I take my last breath, to prove myself worthy of you.”


“You have always, always been good enough for me. I fell in love with you—all of you—not just one piece of you that I thought was perfect. There was never a time I didn’t love you. You need to know that.”
