Mig’s wife is a bitch.
How else do you describe a woman that lies, cheats and steals to get what she wants?
That’s exactly what happens when she traps him into a marriage he wants nothing to do with, saddling him with a kid that he knows doesn’t deserve to be in a world like his.
He’s doing a pretty bang-up job at ignoring everything but his responsibilities as a DEA officer and a member of The Uncertain Saints MC.
Then his neighbor knocks on his door, and everything he thought he knew is blown out the window.
Annie teaches Mig that not every woman is out to get him.
Her love for Mig stretches past what’s appropriate for two friends, and Annie soon straddles that invisible boundary between appropriate and inappropriate.
Annie’s not a cheater, though.
When she tries to say goodbye, Mig won’t let her leave, and soon the tiny town of Uncertain blows up with the news of Annie and Mig’s innocent friendship.
Matters of the heart are foreign to Mig, and it takes Annie being gutted for him to see the wrong he’s done.
He waits too long, though, and Annie’s heart is broken.
She wants it all, or she wants nothing. She can’t take anymore half-hearted attempts at being just friends.
The heart wants what it wants, and it doesn’t take long for Mig to realize that.
But just when Mig finally has it all in the palm of his hand, his life is ripped to shreds by a new player in the game, and it takes all of Annie’s love and devotion, as well as help from the men of The Uncertain Saint’s MC, to put Mig back together again.
Let me start with saying I have not read a Lani Lynn Vale book that I have not loved. I am also a huge MC fan. Lani Lynn Vale is one of the best at writing MC books. The Uncertain Saint’s are not your typical MC group. They ride big, bad, and loud bikes. They are rough and tough with huge hearts. They are honest and true to those who they consider family. To wrap it all up, they are just amazing men.
This is the story of Mig. Hard to believe that Mig can be taken advantage of yet Jennifer manages to do just that. She gets herself pregnant by him and becomes a #1 horrible person. The horrific way she treats not only him but everyone else she comes into contact with cements her as the worse person in the world and I was scared at what kind of wife and mother she would be. When Mig wakes up, and it takes him too long to do that, I want to jump up and down, applaud, and pat Mig on the back.
The next big step is stepping up for Annie. Mig and Annie are wonderful together. They respect each other, they don’t always trust each other but know that the other has their best interests at heart. Their romance is not pretty. It is not easy. It is true. It is real. I love these two. They deserve each other and need to be together. I was very happy that they had to work to make their relationship work. The hard work made it seem so much more realistic.
Lani Lynn Vale did it again. This is the second book in the Uncertain Saints series. Each book can be read on its own but if you read the first book, Whiskey Neat, you will meet the characters and learn some history on the secondary characters.

“Jack and Coke is a must read for fans of romantic suspense with a whole lot of competent humor mixed in, and a romance that's so real and raw that you can't help but relate to the characters and their struggles.” ~Literary Treasure Chest
“WOW! A totally engrossing, beautiful, hot love story! I have read every book by Ms. Vale and with each book she gets better and better, she has a gift for drawing you in and holding you captive.” ~Guilty Pleasures
