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.

  • Love Bain and Luce

    By Judy Hartley
    Wow! Did Lani just do family drama so incredibly well? Yes, yes she did! What a great read! In her very talented way, Ms. Vale takes what could be a very cringy topic and makes it a fantastic fun read! Bane and Luce quickly became a top favorite coupe of mine! They have so much history and deserve to be together and happy. You can help enjoy this fast paced, spicy, entertaining read!
  • Freaking obsessed!

    By Samantha B. Sokol
    Freaking obsessed! I don’t know if it’s because I’ve read basically every book LLV has put out, or just that I can’t get enough of her books, but I swear each book is better and has me more sucked in and hooked than the last, and this one was no exception. Bain and Diana met when she dated Bain’s younger brother. Obvious it wasn’t a good relationship, he pulls through for her when his brother blows her off for prom and Bain steps in, and thus starts the chemistry and feelings these two have for each other. Things take a different level between them when Bain saves Diana from a stalker in which her now-husband (Bain’s brother) doesn’t take seriously, he also plays a part in Bain going to prison for saving her, which gives Diana what she needs to move on and get a divorce. Years later, Bain is finally released from prison, and when he sees Diana, he decides he’s taking his shot with her, especially when she’s attacked days after his release, and they realize someone is after Diana yet again. This book had me on the edge of my seat and kept me guessing until the last moments – I was still shocked that one person wasn’t actually behind everything that happened, and it’s things like that which makes it an epic book for me. I truly cannot wait for the next book in the series, or really any book that LLV comes out with! I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
  • Luce and Bain

    By Ashley🧚🏼‍♂️🧚🏼‍♂️
    Everything changed on prom night for Luce/Diana, Bain too. Over the years, their friendship blossomed, but they couldn’t take it to the next level. The chemistry between the two is fire!! Finally they go there and it’s magical, but people constantly are getting in their way. Will they ever get their HEA the way it’s supposed to be?
  • Not a MC!!

    By The Reading Nano
    The MC that’s not really a MC!! Bain McDempsey is a fantasy come to life. Protective alpha male goodness. Everything you could ever want in a partner. But he’s not her partner his dushbag brother is. Luce “Diana” thinks she’s not good enough for Bain. He’s always been there for her when she desperately needs him but he’s out of her league. “Find that special person. Find that thing in life that makes you happy. Whether it be a person, a job, or a pet. But find it and hold on tight. And never let it go.” There are some seriously crazy things happening that just keep those pages flying. This new series by LLV is is just one more reason that Ms, Vale is at the top of of my go to list and no matter what she writes it’s 5 Star spectacular.
