The Scars That Define Us (The Devil's Dust, #2)
by M.N Forgy
The Devil's Dust MC has a list of new threats to the club's lifestyle. Dani, to prove her loyalty, is trying to embrace a part of herself that she never knew existed until now. A sinful beast lurking beneath her surface has been awakened and is ready to eliminate anyone that stands in its way. Looking at her stained hands, she rinses the blood from them. She resigns herself to innocence lost and welcomes her thirst for more blood.
After a breathtaking turn of events, Shadow is looking at life in a different perspective. Not knowing who he can trust or who he can forgive has left him feeling desolate and alone. As Shadow is laying behind his rifle, he wonders if he can pull the trigger to eliminate the threat. He takes a deep breath and squeezes the trigger, the rifle recoil ignites the fuel that drives him.
Retaliations will be required.
Boundaries will be shattered.
Redemption will be lost.
Betrayal so deep, yet they still yearn for one another. Can Shadow overlook Dani’s transgressions? Can Dani overlook the mistrust that Shadow has placed upon her?

Book 2 in The Devil's Dust MC series. This is a continuation of book 1 and therefore must only be read once you have read What Doesn't Destroy us.
I LOVED book 1, but man, did it end on the mother of all cliffhangers. I seriously could have thrown the kindle at the author's head with the epic ending that we were left with. I am so pleased that M.N Forgy didn't leave us waiting for months on end to conclude Dani and Shadow's story. I don't think I would have coped.
So the story really does pick up where book 1 left us. Dani is being questioned by the FBI and in particular her mother who has used her to infiltrate the MC club that her father presides over. Dani knows little of MC life but she does know one thing, she isn't a rat! unwilling to co-operate she finds herself back in the clubs clutches.
Will they believe her innocence? How will her re-appearance effect club dynamics? and where does this turn of events leave her relationship with Shadow?
It took a lot for Shadow to trust Dani. She broke through his hard exterior and he showed her the darkness that not many people truly see. Shadow feels betrayed on so any levels, daily life has become a struggle without the bit of light he had come to rely on.
Will Shadow eliminate the source of his weakness? Will he follow club orders? or will he learn to trust again?
As with book 1, this is another seriously dark instalment in a super fantastic MC series. M.N Forgy has created 2 characters that have so much depth to them that leaves you fascinated by their decisions, their thoughts and the chemistry that they share. This is no easy ride for our dark duo, they have to fight themselves, each other and many people along the way; it truly is long road for them. This book though has a lot more club politics and the club face a unknown threat. It means that the whole club including their women are at risk and it makes for a page turning backdrop to Dani and Shadows story. Again Bobby gives light relief, I seriously love that man. You get to see more of him in this book, which I lapped up.
A nail biting conclusion to Dani and Shadow's story, and what a story it was - M.N Forgy is extremely talented and I am in awe of her writing. It's left me seriously excited about book 3, The Fear That Divides us, which will be ?'s story.
If you love your MC reads on the grittier/dark side, you have to read this book!

Wow.... I love this story! Forgy is one hell of a storyteller! The fact that an MC book can be about a hot romance, but have such intrigue and twists and turns and make you want to swallow it whole in one sitting is just WOW!
So much more than most MC stories! Can not wait to read all the rest of them
