Title: Vodka on the Rocks
Series: Uncertain Saint's MC #3
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: July 6, 2016
There are rules to life that one just obeys in order in her attempt stay on the right path. For example:
1. You don’t wear dirty panties out of the house. You just never know who’s going to see them.
2. A lady must always have chocolate at the ready—just in case the world as she knows it comes to an end.
3. You don’t egg on a drunk woman who’s pissed off at life.
Why, you ask? Because they start bar fights, that’s why.
Casten Red, the unofficial enforcer of The Uncertain Saints MC, wasn’t necessarily trying to urge her into doing anything illegal, and he definitely wasn’t trying to get her into a fight with a group of men who were all twice her size.
No, he only intended to give her the confidence to stand up for herself, just a little nudge in the right direction. How the hell was he supposed to know she’d go all Chuck Norris on them and put three of them in the hospital with concussions?
What Others Are Saying……
“5 who doesn’t love a beard stars! By far my absolute favorite book by Lani!” ~Alpha Book Club
“Lani’s stories are a breath of fresh air.” ~Ramblings From Beneath the Sheets
Casten Red, the unofficial enforcer of the Uncertain Saints MC, has tried his best to keep himself distant from Tasha (sister to Annie) Going as far as to not showing any attention that might imply that he cares for her in the slightest. His cold demeanor is his only defense against her. But his restraint is slowly slipping and the more time spent in her presence is causing Casten to grow feelings that he’s never wanted to feel towards any female.
Tasha knows Casten has built a wall around his heart. His in difference towards her at all times doesn’t stop her from poking at him. Tasha actually sees it as a challenge to get Casten to even buy her beer. Because lord knows that if Casten ever buys a female a beer that’s signs for marriage lol
Together Casten and Tasha find themselves learning things about their past that helps the two overcome the darkness that they both have in common.
From the very beginning of the book I was hooked, literally the description of the story had me salivating at the mouth. Casten and Tasha together make quite a bit of trouble, with Tasha’s fiery demeanor and Casten’s quick temperament these two are a tornado ready to happen. One of my favorite scenes had to be the bar confrontation, not only did Casten instigate the matter but he quite literally pushed Tasha into a fit lol. As the story progresses we learn about the darkness that follows Tasha. I have to share that this part of the book had me balling like a baby. I myself had a hard time reading the lines on these pages, having experienced something very similar to Tasha’s story I could completely relate to what she felt at that moment. I won’t ruin it with a spoiler but I will say that it was harsh. Casten also has a heavy dark cloud looming over him, so much so that he earns a nick name. It’s actually quite cute “Storm Cloud”. I absolutely loved Casten and Tasha’s story, Lani Lynn out did herself with these two. From the turmoil to the romance and the story all together was just complete perfection. Kudos to you Mrs. Vale! Let’s not forget our favorite past characters making brief appearances. My favorite ones being Mig and Annie. This book has definitely made my top 10 favorite read list and if you haven’t already added this to TBR list or one clicked this amazing read what are you waiting for! Hurry and one click away!
“What makes you think that I don’t have a fuckin’ reason for doing what I do?” I growled. He held up his hands.
“Down tiger,” he said soothingly, although his eyes flashed, telling a different story. I shoved the rest of my things in my bag, bending them to hell and back, but I couldn’t seem to find the urge to care at that moment in time.
I walked past him, knocking his shoulder, and headed to the back hallway to turn off the last of the lights. I hit the first two in the in the locker room before heading to the last one in the entire gym area at the bathroom entrance.
But before I could hit the lights, my hand was stilled by Casten’s. “What’s your problem?” he asked. I tried to rip my hand free from his grip, but he held on without even the least bit of effort.
“I’m pissed,” I growled.
“Why?” he countered. I looked across the room at the mirror, and glared at his reflection. “I don’t want to tell you why I’m pissed. Suffice it to say, you’re the reason, and that’s that,” I growled. He tightened his hands on my wrists.
“That’s not it. Tell me fuckin’ why, or I’ll make you tell me,” he hissed. My fists clenched.
“Because you fucking pouted last night instead of talking to me. Then made Core spend the night and take me to work, when I didn’t want him to be there. I wanted you to be there. But you were being a titty baby,” I yelled. He moved me until my ass met the counter, crowding so close that I was sure he was either going to beat me or fuck me. Hopefully the latter over the former, if I had a choice.
“Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!” I exclaimed. I waited. Nothing. “Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there!” I cried. I waited. Again, nothing. “Shit,” I said, opening my eyes.
“Done?” Casten asked from where he’d trapped me against the bathroom counter. “My clothes are getting wet. In fact, I think my pants are soaked all the way through,” I grumbled, leaning forward until my upper body was laying across the counter. Casten sat up until all that was touching me were his hips, where his massive erection dug into my ass.
“You’re cute,” he said, reaching up and pulling my hair out of my ponytail. I glared. “I’m not cute.” He grabbed my face and turned it to face the mirror. His hands were squeezing my face so I looked like I had ten chin rolls and lips three sizes too big.
