eARC BOOK REVIEW#- The Scars That Define Us (The Devil's Dust #2) by M.N. Forgy

Title:  The Scars That Define Us (The Devil's Dust #2)  
Author:  M.N. Forgy
Publication Date:  October 31st 2014 by M. N. Forgy (first published 2014)

Plot:  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?

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you SO MUCH!! ☆


“Dani, you’re mine. That hasn’t changed and it never will.”

Scars That Define Us was a great, great follow up that quite frankly DID NOT let me down!! Lately, I’ve just about given up on 90% of all MC reads (with the exception of: this author, Chantal Fernando, Kristen Ashley, Joanna Wylde, and Jamie Begley) and their sequels because they never match the hype or quality of what I expect.

Thankfully, in this sequel, it does live up to what I wanted, while diving into the disastrous aftermath of Dani’s mother’s poisonous lies and what it could mean for Dani, Shadow, and the entire Devil’s Dust MC.

-Will Dani be able to convince Shadow and the club of her loyalty? Is she going to be next on the Devil's Dust hit list? Will Shadow recede back into his former self and ever trust Dani again? And what will the future lead for them?-

“Mine and Dani’s relationship is no love story with some happily ever after. What we have is real. It’s dark and it hurts…This is the life of hell we’ve redeemed for ourselves.”

Gosh, M.N. Forgy I have no idea how you did it! I just did not know how you were going to pull this story off with everything in tatters from book 1 while still keeping readers engaged and putting an original spin on the plot and story with some added definitive flair!

Two of the BIGGEST ISSUES that I have with MC reads are the 1) surplus amount of drama, violence, sex, womanizing, and useless ploys AND 2) the short, quipped vulgar language of the men in the club. It’s just a turn off with the excess amount of crap that are added into MC books and to come across grown men who sound like ill educated teenagers and swear every other word. It just does not float my boat and is severly obnoxious.

SO NO GUYS, in case you're wondering, the author did not hit these pet peeves of mine, but somehow, managed to keep the essence of this story tasteful, well balanced, and "spellbindingly addicting"!

Great job Ms. Forgy!! And I look forward to more from this series!

Can’t wait for X & X’s (*sorry, I’m not allowed to tell!) story!! Woohoo!!♥ ♥
