The Lies Between Us (The Devil's Dust #4)
by M.N. Forgy
Book 4 in the Devil’s Dust MC Series. This book can be read as a standalone, however, to get more depth from all the characters and the club I suggest you read the books in the order in which they were written.
Cherry has become an integral part of this series. Old lady to a member, she remained faithful and loyal to Lip during his 6 years in prison. Now he is out and they must start again. But the Lip she has waited for isn't the Lip that comes home. He is darker, moodier and more complex. Does she stay and fight, uncovering his secrets, whilst hiding her own?
This is Cherry and Lip’s story. It takes us back to the beginning and we learn all about Cherry, where she comes from and what she is hiding from the club. We watch as Lip saves her from an unknown future, and the attraction that burns instantly between them, until Lip is locked up after taking the fall for his club on a run. What follows is a journey full of secrets, lies and heartbreak. Loyalty to a club and chosen family, over that of blood. It is gritty, it is raw and it is everything you have come to expect from this author and series.
Once again club dynamics are a real focus in this book. The relationship between Cherry and Lip is so integrated within the club that the dynamic between them and the secrets they withhold from each other, and the club reach fever pitch. Your heart will break for Cherry more than once, and although he makes mistakes, you will feel the weight that Lip has had to carry on his shoulders for years.
Another great addition to a brilliant series. M.N Forgy has made each characters story so different, whilst tying them all together with a strong club story arc. I wasn't sure if a book about Cherry and Lip would be necessary, but it was and I loved it. Having now read it, I understand the club a lot more, which is the overall aim in a series like this. I know that M.N now plans a spin-off series for her next project, but I do hope we revisit the Devil’s again. I Love the president Bull and really hope he finds his HEA.
If you love your MC romance gritty, raw and rich in club politics, this series has it all. Another MUST READ!!

Cherry’s life growing up was nothing short of a nightmare. Having an abusive father forced her to fend for herself from an early age. Bruised and emotionally broken, she finally escaped, running straight into the comfort that Lip's arms brought. In the beginning, everything seemed to fall into place perfectly. He made her forget the messed-up ways of her life. But secrets can’t stay neglected. They have a habit of revealing themselves regardless of the consequences. Terrified, Cherry can’t speak a word or she’ll lose it all.
Lip is no stranger to the criminal life. Growing up among convicts, he wanted nothing more than to show his worth. He’ll do anything for the club without question, including serving six years in prison. But nobody could have predicted life’s plan. Rugged, tattooed, and wanting nothing more than to have Cherry, Lip is no longer the man whom Cherry remembers. After his release, he came out a beast with more secrets and lies than his cage could hold.
When a relationship is surrounded by mounting dark secrets, is it possible to survive and come out unscathed.

Wow!!! M.N. Forgy, you wrote a fantastic story!!!
This one is going to be my fave of hers.... it is set up to make you crave the happiness that Lip and Cherry deserve!!!
Cherry and Lip have suffered before being together, and the suffering they do as they are torn apart brings you to one knee... but the freaking twist that bursts the happy bubbly literally has you back peddling into a corner speechless and not knowing what the hell is going to come next!!
This is f***ed up entirely... there is no returning from insanity when the carpet gets pulled out from under you like it does for Cherry!
I don't want to give a single thing away... just read this and hang on for the effed up ride!!!
