Bad Apple

(Uncertain Saints MC #4)

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

Originally a DNF but I started listening to the other books in the series and thought I’d give it another go.

I didn’t love it. But I realize that in my case LLV was an acquired taste that I happen to have well... acquired lol

While this is my least fave of all her books that I’ve read, Apple has his unique charm so, alas, here we are
at about a 2.5.

Bad Apple let us into Apple and Kitt’s story, and it’s quite a ride…

They are both broken souls, each in his/hers own way, but when they meet something special happens, and they soon realize it, but also fight it. Sure, they give in to their physical attraction, but letting themselves go and trust, is a whole new matter. But they were also aware it was near to impossible mission.

She’d be hell on the heart, that was for sure.

She may want just a one night stand, but I wasn’t one to fool m

Exciting story....Lani you have rocked this series and it keeps getting better and better.....An excellent read for anyone who enjoys similarities with real life. A PTSD man with regrets, suicidal thoughts and ssssooooo much more. Comes to meet a women who pushes him to face his demons and help her along the way. The heart break they suffer to survive at the end is just spectacular. The story draws you in from the beginning and keeps you captivated to the end. I can not wait for the rest of the ...more
☆☆☆☆ 4 Hot biker stars ☆☆☆☆

The "Uncertain Saints" series is definitely a lot grittier than other books by Lani Lynn Vale that I've read. This book was no exception.

Apple was a broken man. He had experienced more in his life than most people had. He carried around so many painful memories. He was content to patch into the Uncertaint Saints and get some sort control over his life. He meets Kitt at a club party and instantly feels an attraction. He is hesitant because not only is he emotionally da

Personal Review:
This was a confusing romance between a hard-headed biker and a woman he gets pregnant.

Apple "Core" Drew joined the Uncertain Saints MC because his father suggested it, he felt it would be an answer to his continued withdrawn state. Core didn't plan on meeting Kitt, she was beautiful and pure and not what he deserved. When Core and Kitt come together, however never thought that it would end with a pregnancy.

Kitt doesn't know what she needs to do to get through to Apple that he is the man for her. She accepts him for who he is flaws and all. It will take a bit of a shake up for Cor

Okay, that was different. Now, there's good different and then there's bad different. Which one is this? Well.... I can't decide. I'm a long time fan of LLV and pretty auto buy all her books, but this one left me wanting. I liked Kitt and Apple, as well as the premise of the story, but it seemed to just skim the surface for me. For a book told in dual POV; there's a lot of info we don't get. We're told how broken Apple believes himself to be. Additionally, we're

I NEED A BAD APPLE!!! I loved Kitt and Apple's story..poor Apple has such ptsd, anxiety and depression...and he feels like he is not lovable!! Kitt has seizures and is very protected by her brother...these 2 together are electric!! I love that they got baby Emily...and I loved how Apple took such good care of Kitt...and I loved how she kicked some major ass at the end...dont mess with will regret it!!! I am on to book 5...this really is a great series...they get better and better!!
It started out good and got off track then the ending just felt rushed. While I still liked it and will finish the series and continue reading and listening to Lani Lynn Vale I thought this one could have been better.

Bad Apple is the fourth addition to Lani Lynn Vale’s Uncertain Saints MC series. This series is a bit darker and grittier than fans are used to seeing from Vale, but she’s done a great job tackling the sensitive and difficult topics in this book while staying true to her unique writing style. Always well written, always full of surprises, steam and laughter, a Lani Lynn Vale novel is something I always look forward to.

Vale took on some hard subjects in this book, and she did them well. Apple “Co

Bad Apple is the fourth book in Lani Lynn Vale’s Uncertain Saint’s MC series and like its predecessors, the hero has a jacked up past and is consumed with anger, self-loathing, and demons that force him to keep people at a distance, especially women, because he doesn’t want to taint any more people than he already has.

Apple “Core” Drew, like most of the Uncertain Saints, struggles with PTSD and doesn’t quite know how to deal with his issues besides keeping to himself and running away when things

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 o

I've loved this series from the beginning. Every book has been ridiculously good. But this story checked off every single button for me. It was ridiculously ALL THE THINGS !! #TRUST

I've mentioned this before, but it is worth mentioning again ... this MC Club is not your typical 1% club you tend to read about. It is a band of brothers, but more like a club of brothers comprised of guys with shattered lives for one reason or another looking for a safe heaven ... this is what the Uncertain Saint

To be honest I really wasn’t sure what I was going to get with this book. Book 1 and 2 of this series were my favorite. The 3rd book is a close second.
So to say I am pleasantly surprised is an understatement. I want a Bad Apple! ;)

Even knowing Apple’s past and what he is going through you never feel like he is down on himself. Well he is but he has a reason to live life now, Kitt comes into his life when he needed her.

But it was Apple who came into Kitts like when she neede

Okay so i didn't listen to the reviews I thought it was going to good . Horrible horrible horrible 1.2 just because I believe the Author deserves at least a little credit but this one is the worst one I've listen to this year it was everywhere nothing like the first book AT ALL. I mean it was just ugh . Like eating a gym sock on a sunny day with rotten milk. If that helps anybody I think the author needs to rethink before publishing another book and making sure that it's worth publishing is this ...more

Another fantastic book from Lani Lynn Vale. The story of Kitt and Apple is one of sex, love, heartache and forever. Two f#%cked up people as Kitt describes them that need each other. This story has the usual quotes before each chapter that I have come to look forward to in Lani's books. This book gives you laughs, hot alphas, strong female and a love that makes your heart swell. My favourite part is Ridley finding the butt print on the bonnet of his car.

Written with lots of love...I think lots of hurting folks and how giving and caring helps them. It went a little " Fried Green Tomato" in the book but I still liked the overall book.

So, if you read my previous reviews in this series, you may wonder why I read this book, if I wasn't happy with previous ones. Because I do enjoy Lani books, so I have some hope for the rest. Not to mention that, at this point I'm curious too, if the whole series are with the same H pushing h away pattern and h forgiving H easily for hurting them.
And yes. This story have it too. In this one thought, it makes sense. Apple has a bagadge. All lot of it. Meaning, he is haunted by a couple things, t

Hmm so I wasn’t the biggest fan of apple for about the first half of the book but by the end he somewhat redeemed himself. So far the 2 books I’ve read in this series have been a miss for me. With that being said, I am absolute trash for LLV so I will continue on lol

Josie's Review

Lani Lynn Vale has hit the ball right out of the park with this book. I love her work and have read all her books, but this one hit home for me. To be able to tackle real life issues and add it to a work of fiction the way she did was brilliant. Soldiers go off to war and come home as hero’s but no one sees the devastation and chaos that goes on after the war and in Bad Apple we see it in all its ugliness. We also get to see how a life threatening illness can either cripple a perso
