Rusty Nail by Lani Lynn Vale

Rusty Nail by Lani Lynn Vale, at first, started off in a way that I was having a hard time jiving with, and then I got to around the 45-50% mark and things started to get a little better. I don’t know if it’s the series or the sameness of the authors’ writing, but the Uncertain Saints MC series, and I’ll lump the Kilgore Fire series in with this as well, just hasn’t engrossed me as Lani Lynn Vale’s previous 3 series. I really wanted to like this series as a whole, but now that I’ve finished Rusty Nail – last book in the Uncertain Saints MC series – I find myself not a huge fan. While Rusty Nail wasn’t a great read or even a completely good read, it was entertaining and had moments when I saw glimpses of why I continue to buy and read this author’s books. […]

Another story hits my hands and I’m left wondering what went wrong. Bad Apple by Lani Lynn Vale had all the elements I love in a Romantic Suspense, heck it was even a Lani Lynn Vale story, but the wires got crossed somewhere around the beginning of the story that just built a 12-inch titanium wall between it and me. From the other books in the Uncertain Saints MC series I never really paid attention to Apple’s character, but the one thought I did have was, “Given time he would be a character that might steal a piece of my readers heart.” Sadly, I felt that time wasn’t given because while his story was mature and ready to be the next story in the Uncertain Saints series, I don’t feel that him as a character was ready (I hope that made sense). Apple has dealt with a lot of stuff […]

Vodka on the Rocks by Lani Lynn Vale

With each Lani Lynn Vale story, other than the almost always guaranteed off the wall humor, I don’t know what to expect. Luckily, Vodka on the Rocks by Lani Lynn Vale was no different. For some reason I want to say that Vodka on the Rocks was a friends to lovers story, but as I think about it, Casten and Tasha had a healthy dislike for one another (which was a smoke screen for their growing attraction). But, again as I am thinking about this, I think it was because Tasha didn’t put up with Casten’s grumpiness, and he didn’t care about her crazy antics or sayings that they eventually became friends and then lovers, hence the friends to lovers trope feeling. I feel that was because of their crazy everything that these two worked so well for me as a couple compared to the couples that have come before […]

Jack & Coke by Lani Lynn Vale

Jack & Coke by Lani Lynn Vale

Everything about Jack & Coke by Lani Lynn Vale kept yelling at me, “You shouldn’t like this!” From the borderline affair chomping at the bit to take place between Annie and Mig, to the irritating noble and responsible man Mig had to be towards a woman that trapped him into marriage, to the secrets kept throughout Jack & Coke‘s pages I shouldn’t have liked this book, but I couldn’t put it down. Dish water became cold, sleep became nonexistent, and getting out of my pajamas wasn’t even a thought in my mind, I was captivated. The borderline affair between Mig – who was married – and Annie – Mig’s next door neighbor, and Mig’s irritating sense of nobility in staying married to his *%$#@ of a wife should’ve all been reasons why Jack & Cole shouldn’t be a much loved story, but slip right in there it did. While Mig’s […]

I think that when reading a Lani Lynn Vale book, from now on I need to stop expecting them to be like the books I’ve read previously by her. The reason I say this is because I was expecting Whiskey Neat by Lani Lynn Vale to be similar to some of my favorites from the Code 11-KPD SWAT, Freebird, and The Heroes of the Dixie Wardens MC series, and that’s not fair. If I were to have measured Whiskey Neat up to my favorites from those series my rating for this book would have been lower. It was when I stopped comparing and contrasting Whiskey Neat to the other books that I was able to start seeing that the whole premise of it was fundamentally different. Once I was able to step back and realize this I began looking at the story in a completely different way. Now that I’ve […]
