Bain met Diana, a.k.a. Luce, the night before he was set to deploy to Afghanistan.
It’s not every day that you take your brother’s girlfriend to prom because he refuses to put out the effort.
That night was one of the best nights of his life and the next day, he leaves and doesn’t see her again.
But there are letters. Not many, but enough for them to form a connection.
Over the two-year deployment, they became great friends.
The best of friends—at least, as good of friends as you can be when it’s your brother’s wife.
Fast-forward six years and she still counts him as one of her greatest friends. Even going as far as to stick by him when he’s sent to prison because his own brother turned on him.
Luce had a crush on her then-boyfriend’s brother since way before she and Bain’s brother were married. From the moment he volunteered to take her to prom, she’d fallen.
Over the years, she’d tried to hide it. Tried to go on with her life and act like she loved her husband and only her husband. But as time went on and Braxton started to treat her more and more like crap, she realized the truth. Her husband wasn’t Bain. Her husband would never be him.
Hell, that’d been proven time and time again.
The smoking gun, though? The thing that made her realize it was time to leave?
When her husband stood by while she was assaulted, while the man she tried to act like was just a friend protected her. Then was sentenced to eight years in jail for it.
It was time to admit the truth.
Bain McDempsey was it for her. She just had to help him see it. Oh, and get him out of prison first.
The Gator Bait MC series continues with Good Trouble and I am really falling in love with it! Bain and “Luce” have a forever kind of love, except for the fact she was really his brother’s girl.
I can say that I think I hated Braxton (Bain’s brother) more than any other character I’ve read in a long time. He is the worst kind of person-a true narcissist. I want him to suffer at some point. Suffer BAD! It’s difficult to understand how he is blood related to Bain and his parents because they are wonderful. Luce is wonderful as well. Her depression is relatable and I think a lot of people will understand why she married Braxton.
Bain has always loved Luce, but he really has to convince her to give them a shot. Bain is newly out of jail and trying to reestablish his life. Thankfully Accident, Florida has a new sheriff because Bain and Luce are going to spend a lot of time with him. Good Trouble was a quick, steamy, fun read that I binged in a day. I cannot wait for more from this series. I’m glad LLV writes fast!
