"Lust like a saint, trust like a sinner."
Fan-fucking-tastic! These days, so many of the books all feel the same but with a few names and places changed. Thankfully, that is not the case with this one.
M.N Forgy has a fresh, raw and passionate book, with characters that just leap off the page and into your heart.
Warning: There is a HUGE cliffhanger! It seriously left me stunned and trying to for fully flip pages that don't exist. My advice, grab book 2 before you start, you will need it right away!
Dani is a very innocent and sheltered twenty-one-year old whose life is constantly ruled by her controlling mother who is set on keeping her inline and on the "right" path, at all costs.
For as long as she can remember; she’s always been a disappointment to her mother, starting right from being her father’s daughter.
A man she knows nothing about, nothing besides her mother’s hatred for him, thus bleeding into her resentment and fear that Dani will be just like her father.
"You came from trash; you might as well live like it."
When her mother comes crashing in with blood on her face and looking like a train wreck at the hands of her boyfriend, demanding they leave for California right away, Dani obeys but she wants answers.
Dani learns that they are in some serious trouble, her mother has seen too much and now needs some help from Bull, the ruthless President of Devil’s Dust MC, the man they are seeking protection and refuge with. Her Father, who has no idea she even exists.
"We need the type of help only an outlaw club like your father belongs to can give."
With her world already spinning on its axis, Dani walks right into the mouth-watering Sargent-At-Arms of Devil’s Dust MC, Shadow and sparks begin to fly instantly.
With all the secrets, lies and danger, she knows she should stay away, Shadow is everything her mother has tried to keep her safe from, he is the kind of man who will tear her apart and leave her in pieces when he is done. But she can’t resist him; his darkness calls to her, he makes her feel home.
Shadow has had a hard life and was forced to learn to survive on his own at a young age. When his father passed away, Shadow’s world came crashing down, his mother found comfort in the tube of a needle, caring less and less about what he was doing or where he was.
It wasn’t long before he found himself in more trouble than he could handle, trouble that led him to the MC, that gave him a new family. His Brothers.
"They said I was the kid that lives within his Shadow, no soul, no remorse."
He doesn’t love, he doesn’t do relationships, he doesn’t want an ‘Ol lady, and he doesn’t trust.
When Dani is thrown into his life, she has him in knots, has him wanting things he didn’t think he could have. He wants to let her in and trust her.
But club law makes the daughter of the President is off limits, it’s a death wish to mess with her.
The pull is too strong to fight.
"I don't care if my mother finds us, and he doesn't care if my father kills him. We cannot deny the attraction that consumes us, brands us."
The MC live a completely different world to what Dani has ever known, Shadow is worried he will destroy her with his darkness, with his way of life. But the Princess of Devil’s Dust has her own darkness; after all, she is her father’s daughter, and the MC is quickly becoming her home.
"I know you have Devil’s Dust Blood in you, and I think you know it , too. I saw the ferocious woman in you finally escape tonight; the woman your mother has been scared shitless to let out. You are your father’s daughter, no doubt,"
With crazy mothers, a gun welding father and enough secrets to fill the ocean, can Shadow give her everything she needs and keep her safe? Can Dani show him that he can trust her with his heart and his life?
"I’m the fucking Sargent-At-Arms of the Devil’s Dust Motorcycle Club. I’m a murderer, an outlaw, a fucking beast. There are no white picket fences and Sunday brunches on this side."
I guess you will have to get your hands on a copy and find out all about the green-eyed Princess of the MC and the dirty talking, heart-stopping Sargent-At-Arms.
