"Violent/gritty but enjoyable romance"
When I purchased this book I did not realize it was not a stand alone novel. That being said part 2 is out so you can move on in and listen to it right away as I did. This story is unexpected. It has twists that you don't see coming. It is violent, gritty, but worth a listen. I enjoyed this book and was actually excited that part 2 was out and I bought it right away. It is credit worthy. The inner workings of the MC are not discussed and are mainly a back drop for the acceptance of violence. I recommend this and it falls into my top 25 listens of 2015.
"Part One of Two"
I have had this in my library for several months and have been shelving it because it has a CLIFFHANGER, and I just don't like that, especially when it's the first impression I get from a new-to-me author. I got Book 4 in this series, and it was good, so I figured it was time to give this a try. However, having tragically just wasted 2 credits to complete a trilogy that also started with a cliffhanger (I really need to check the reviews on EVERY purchase from now on), I decided to listen to the very end before deciding on whether to get Book 2 this time.
This is a good MC romance series with well-written characters and lots of layers. Both Shadow and Dani are relatively likable, even though they are certainly flawed. There's plenty of drama, some more authentic than others, but all within the realm of believability. I don't like spoilers, so if you want more, give it a listen. The verdict? I got Book 2 within a minute or so of finishing this one, and I didn't regret it.
The narration is very good. Both narrators do a great job of performing the various emotions and voices well. They make a good team and would definitely be the plus that would sway me to hit "Add to Cart" if ever I'm on the fence about a book.
"Did I read the reviews for the wrong book?"
I debated for a while about getting this book; read and reread the reviews. All amazing reviews, so I took a chance.
I found this story to be juvenile at best, and the proper grammar and pronunciation of words just didn't fit the characters at all. Don't get me wrong, I am a stickler about proper grammar but not for these tough, gruff bikers. The main male character was just a pig! And the main female character was in over her head with this lifestyle.
I didn't make it passed chapter 10, at that part of the storyline I just needed to turn it off and return the book. I'm hoping Dani wised up and got the hell out, but probably not.
I really tried to give this book the benefit of the doubt and continued listening with the hope it got much better. But to no avail, it did not and I was out of patience.
I will stick to my other MC series, and enjoy a well written biker story.
"Love Dani and Shadow!"
I have to share that I don't normally like MC books. They are to violent or to unbelievable. This one I loved. The men are bad-asses that wants someone to love and the women are trying to hold to their independence while still depending on their men.
There are a few characters that I truly want someone to put a bullet in their head. Lady for one I don't understand how she can call herself a mother. Locks who needs his privates removed and Cassie there is no words.
I believe if you like MC books you will love this one. Enjoy!
"loved this book!"
bought this book awhile ago and kept saying I was gonna get to it next.. well after talking to the author at a signing, I said OK.. I love MC books and this one, was excellent. The story takes you on a ride and I fell for shadow and Dani as a couple. be warned it does end in a cliffy and what a cliffy is it. Thank goodness book 2 is already out.. go one click, you won't be sorry...
"LUST TEARS & LOVE + THRILLS & DRAMA MC STYLE"
The non-stop drama kicks right off from the first few words and from then on I was gripped as 21 yr old Dani's sheltered and naive world comes crashing down around her.... sometimes brick by brick and sometimes in great big damaging and hurtful chunks. As she's thrown into the shocking new world of the Devil's Dust MC it's sink or swim time which awakens her dormant kick-ass genes and sexual desires and before she knows it Dani's met her Father, lost her virginity, had jealous rages, fought with Club whores, clambered for respect, fallen out and split with her controlling hateful Mother, met the love of her life and now wears the Patch of an Old Lady.
The Patch says she's the property of Shadow, the MC Sargent-at-Arms, who's as handsome as sin, as deadly as a viper, is dark and brooding because of a childhood packed full with hurts and regrets, his life holds secrets and he is a possessive Alpha bad-ass. It wasn't a smooth ride for him and Dani but as soon as he saw her she brought light into his dark unforgiving world, added explosive chemistry followed by hot sex and he started to trust, to hope and to believe that he too could have a piece of Heaven in his dark and lonely Hell.... until one terrible fateful night when he was suddenly proved wrong.
ANYONE who loves the MC world of sexy leather-clad Alpha Bikers, Old Ladies, Cuts, Patches, Sweetbutts (Club whores), raw passion, hot sex, moody heroes, angst, murder, revenge, drama and an action-filled plot will love this. Plenty of character growth as Shadow tries to be worthy of Dani and she has uncorked her bad side making them perfect for each other. There's scenes where knuckles, fists and/or guns were used and a WTF of a CLIFFHANGER ending which will have you gasping in horror because you'll never ever ever see it coming and it'll have you frantically looking for book 2 (which is happily available now). Packed full of interesting characters, dual POV's and the narrators did a fantastic job with all the voices and brought the good, the bad and the ugly scenes to life.
Worth a credit? Loved it, didn't want to stop it, am raving about it and YES I found it very creditworthy.
"Unexpected Twists Propel Story"
Right from the very first word, the story is moving. The storyline is unique, and though sometimes I was confused, the intrigue and unknown kept me on the edge. As soon as I finished, I was ready for book two. With the ending so unsettled, be prepared to go right onto the next book!
"Great new series!"
Have not read the print version.
Dani and her character is only getting better. She starts off so mild and unknowing but as time goes on Dani becomes a woman with depth and character.
Great narrators and will listen to them again.
I would have loved to listen to this book in all one setting but sleep had to come. Already downloading the next book in the series.
"All I can say is ....WOW"
Yes because it's a gritty, sexy, thrilling m.c book.
Shadow because he is sexy and a alpha male but also shows vulnerability and the ability to deeply love
This is my 1st time listening to them
Dirty sexy Devil's Dust
I can't wait for the next book I hope it's on here soon.
