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.
You know those authors that are automatic reads, even if once in a while a book may or may not have worked for you but you don’t care because you still love that author, well Lani Lynn Vale is one of those authors for me. Oh and Jack & Coke is a book I didn’t like, nope not at all, I LOVED it! Every book that she writes, while it may tie into other series, is special in the way she makes us love the characters even if at times we want to beat them with a baseball bat. She makes you feel the love, the angst, the happy times and the sad times with her words and trust me in Jack & Coke you will feel all of those things.
Remember that beat with a baseball bat comment I made a few sentences ago? Well it isn’t Mig or Annie I want to beat and yes, if you know me I usually want to beat one or both of the main characters at some point. It’s Mig’s wife who I wouldn’t shed a tear over if I happened to run her over with a semi, backed up and did it again and again. Can you feel the hate I had for this woman? If you don’t believe me read the book and you too will feel homicidal towards her, trust me.
I know I say that I am so looking forward to the next book, but when I say that I mean it. I love falling in love with a series that I can’t help but want more of and Jack & Coke added to my love of the Uncertain Saints series and made my love of Lani Lynn Vale even stronger.
“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
