The problem with Wake was that he was understandable. He was the type of villain that literally scared the absolute shit out of you because you knew that under the right circumstances, you could end up exactly like him.
Which, sadly, was the case for me.
I’d done the exact same thing as Wake, and now I was a murderer just like him.
Did I know that I did wrong? Hell yes.
Did I regret that? Hell no.
Did I plan on changing a thing? Also, no.
Was I falling in love with a man that should scare the shit out of me? A resounding hell yes.
Nobody Cares Unless You’re Pretty kicks off a new series by Vale. If you read the Battle Crow’s MC series, you have already met the leads in this book: Wake and Dutch!
Wake went to prison for all the RIGHT reasons. Finding his brother in law attempting to molest his daughter and then killing the guy-understandable! Killing a bunch of other pedophiles who escaped prosecution? Makes sense. But it landed him in prison for 10 years. He is finally out and trying to settle back into life in Accident, Florida. He met Dory as her neighbor for the brief time she was living in Florida. Dory worked for Dutch at her psychology practice. Dutch meets Wake when she wants information on how to kill someone.
I loved Wake in Dory’s book previously so I was really excited to get more of his story. I love how understanding and supportive he is of his daughter, and he has a really good relationship with his sister. Dutch on the other hand, doesn’t have a great relationship with her “mother”. Both Dutch and Wake aren’t willing to sit back and let children be harmed. They have an interesting relationship for sure. The story has some unanswered questions that led to a larger story arc that will likely span the series. Personally, I love that! I really enjoyed the story and the characters and am very excited to see where Vale takes this new series.
