Series: The Uncertain Saints MC #6
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romantic Suspense
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.”
