He knows that pain makes you stronger…

Wolf isn’t always a good person, and he doesn’t hesitate to say what’s on his mind.

He is who he is, and he doesn’t offer apologies.

He isn’t out to impress anyone, and he doesn’t make excuses for his actions.

She knows that fear makes you braver…

Raven has made some bad decisions, and she’d give anything to go back in time and choose a different path.

The reality is that she can’t go back, and the day Wolf walks into her life, she finally realizes that maybe she doesn’t want to.

Wolf is everything she’s ever wanted, and the exact opposite of what she needs.

They both know heartbreak makes you wiser…

Wolf knows that this is not a good idea. There are a million reasons—all of them bad—telling him exactly why he should stay away.

But when Raven’s nightmares burst out of her dreams and into her reality, he doesn’t have a choice anymore.

He has to protect her, while somehow protecting his battered heart.

Rusty Nail, at first, started off in a way that I was having a hard time jiving with, and then I got to around the 45-50% mark and things started to get a little better.

I don’t know if it’s the series or the sameness of the authors’ writing, but the Uncertain Saints series, and I’ll lump the Kilgore Fire series in with this as well, just hasn’t engrossed me as Lani Lynn Vale’s previous 3 series. I really wanted to like this series as a whole, but now that I’ve finished Rusty Nail – last book in the Uncertain Saints MC series – I find myself not a huge fan.

While Rusty Nail wasn’t a great read or even a completely good read, it was entertaining and had moments when I saw glimpses of why I continue to buy and read this author’s books.

Wolf’s character was always a fascination for me since the very first book out of this series, but I feel like his character went from being the silent and imposing brother amongst the Uncertain Saints to being someone I couldn’t fully stand behind, if Controlled Burn was anything to go by. Out of all the brothers of the Uncertain Saints I really thought that he would be my Silas, and while the author did a good job of pulling out his pleasing (at least to me) character qualities from the earlier books it was in the last two where I felt he was portrayed a little dishonestly.

Raven’s character was a hoot. She didn’t play the game that some of the men in her life tried to make her a member of, whatever she did she stayed true to who she was regardless if she made dumb decisions based off her past or how she felt. I loved her reactions to Wolf, Nathan, and Xavier (who I would’ve loved to have read more about). Her character was truly the heart behind Rusty Nail.

I feel that if I take a break from Vale’s writing then I’ll miss reading that book that bring her back to being on my favorite author list, but I’m also tired of being left unsatisfied and sometimes disappointed. I guess I’ll just have to take it one book at a time and wait for more versatile reviews to hit Goodreads before I one-click.
