He is beast and beauty sealed in a leather cut with a gun holster. Can Dani learn to live within the Club rules? Is she more like her father than she could imagine?
Shadow has grown up among drug addicts, whores and murderers. The only family he’s ever trusted has been the Devil’s Dust motorcycle club. He will do anything for a brother; even kill. In fact, killing is so easy, he’s made a career of it. His one regret is not being able to kill his own worthless mother. When Dani shows up with her provocative temper and innocent charm, Shadow begins to question his violent lifestyle. But can he trust her with his demons?
Will Dani and Shadow let family ties destroy them?
Holy Guacamole what a ride! By now everyone who knows me, knows I love a good MC story and this one did not disappoint. It had everything I loved and more. We get 3 slurry troll moles (people I’d like to throat punch), 2 crazy as hell mamas, 1 hot as sin sexy biker and the Prez of the Devils Dust MC. The author really hit the nail on the head with this one. There is grit, drama, danger, drugs, angst, betrayal and of course really hot biker sex.
Dani aka Firefly grew up without her father, she was raised by her mother Sadie in the city. Life with her mother was not easy. They don’t have the typical mother/daughter relationship. One night her life changes after her mother informs Dani that their lives are in danger and they have leave. They will be staying with her father Bull. Dani is shocked to learn she has a father and that they are going to stay with him at the MC compound. When Dani sees Shadow there in an instant attraction between the two. However Dani does not understand the MC world or what it means for Shadow to be with the prez’ daughter.
Shadow is the Sergeant at Arms for the Devils Dust MC, there is nothing nice about his lifestyle. They do drugs, kill and steal. Whatever he needs to do he does it to protect the club but most of all he does not do relationships. The moment he meets Dani, she brings outs a primal need in him that he has never experienced. Dani’s innocence, she lacks the experience. She doesn’t’ understand the way things work around there. He won’t betray his club or his Prez. The president’s daughter is off limits and the more he tries to push her away the more he is drawn to her. He finds himself having a hard time staying away from her. Shadow seeks out Dani needing be with her, next to her one but then he pushes her away. I swear I got dizzy with this.
“Dani, don’t read anything into this, there’s nothing between us. Being together is a hell we can’t afford to explore.”
Here is the catch, Dani is nothing like he pegged her to be, she is not a stuck up princess. She has a dark side and when Shadows pushes to far he is not prepared for what happens. Much to her mother’s dismay, she is a force to be reckoned with. After all she is the daughter of the President and she takes after Bull. She is a fighter and will do what is necessary to survive. The more they are at the club the more her mother, witnesses the change in Dani and her mother becomes more angry,
“This is wrong. I raised you better than this. I gave you a better life than this; hell, I gave you life. Look at you; you are nothing more than biker trash!”
“The only time you were there was to tell me what a fu*k up I was. Well, no more. I realize now I could have never made you happy anyway. I’ve always been biker trash to you; that’s what pisses you off more than anything.”
“I couldn’t stand the sight of you past the age of seven! NO matter what you did, you reminded me of him!”
Shadow is such biker man, he is totally alpha but when he is around Dani he feels different, he wants more and feels more. The problem he has is if he can put in all on the line and go against club law. When he pushes too far and Dani doesn’t want to be around him he really starts to feel remorse. The thought of not having her there scares him. Dani proves over and over that she is not a city girl, she has the MC in her blood and he is turned on by it.
“I still want to explain thing,”
“I think it’s a little late for that, don’t you?
“No, it’s not too late if you will stop being a stuck up bitch for a second and hear me out.”
“You were right; I shouldn’t have gotten involved with you. I expect a little more than to be someone’s sloppy seconds.”
“You can’t avoid me forever, Dani.”
Shadow and Dani can play a mean game of cat and mouse. I can tell you the author spared no angst in that department. I was angry, excited and wanting throat punch a slurry troll more than a couple of times. Dani gives as much as they throw at her. The author did not sell this character short, she wrote a heroin true to her upbringing in NYC and that of a Prez’ daughter. Dani has spunk, class and a mean right hook.
“Then I got to know you a little better, and now, after that little charade in there, I know you have Devil’s Dust blood in you, and I think you know it, too. I’ve never done this before, so be warned. I’m going to be a shitty romantic, and you’re going to be pissed more than you actually like me. If we decide to go forward, you are mine! I own you, do you understand? I won’t let you go, and I sure as hell won’t let you go back to New York. Say it Dani. Say you’re mine and you understand.”
“I’m your and I understand.”
The author gives us some damn hot sex scenes with these two and also some pretty big blows up that will get your blood boiling (And panties wet). Shadow is one dirty biker (Swear to God) and Dani is not that innocent. She likes it just the way Shadows gives it to her.
“Spank me, Shadow.”
“Fu*k yeah, just like that, baby. Eyes on me Firefly.”
The author did an amazing job with this book. I could not put it down. I was drawn from the start and completely invested till the very end. There was not once that this story fell short or deviated from the MC genre. Something happens (you need to read it because I will not spoil it) within the MC and let me tell you I did not see that coming. Left me in total shock. When Dani’s life is in danger and the way of life of the MC is jeopardized, who will save them both or can they be saved? Can Shadow and Dani find their HEA? Will Shadow be able to make the ultimate sacrifice to keep the woman he loves safe and by his side? I loved the way the author ended this book and I cannot wait to see what happens in the future for them and the Devils Dust MC’s. I want more! If you love a good MC story then this one is definitely one you want to be picking up. You do not want to miss out on this one.
