Publisher's Summary

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?

Couldn't put this one down!

I usually do not like stories that are not stand alone, but in this case the second book was so much better than the first. This two book series was gritty, emotional, violent and overall an very enjoyable listen! The MC is in the mix, however the focus of this story is on the two flawed main characters .... how the come to accept love, and embrace life despite the violent tendencies that are part of the life they have chosen. This was so credit worthy and I recommend it for any reader who enjoy gritty MC novels!

IT'S EDGY, A BIT DARK & IT'S ALL-CONSUMING

I love a good MC book.... and this is definitely a worthy 5 star listen as it packs so much in. You get the gritty MC lifestyle, the threats, the twists, the suspense, the "oh shits", the brotherhood mentality and, on top of all this, you also get a romance that was anything but 'typical'. However, for the two broken main characters, it worked for them as they battled poisonous lies, overcame each other's mistrust, fought inner turmoil, triumphed over their haunted pasts, conquered jealousies, had lots of epic sex, healed from heartbreak, killed and was nearly killed, discovered an enemy within as well as gained evil new ones and, thankfully, survived it all. And, through so much diversity, their characters changed, they grew closer together and formed a loving bond made from blood, death, violence, passion, forgiveness and trust.

Together they have the perfect balance - Shadow now has light in his life thanks to Dani and Dani has found the home she never knew she wanted..... with Shadow and all the MC characters.

Worth a credit? Dual POV's, great narration, an action-packed story that was full of biker suspense and a love story that defied and survived everything that was thrown at it. A good balance of drama vs romance and a very creditworthy purchase.

Must read after book 1!

I saw a few negative reviews on this book and I just can’t understand why unless it was read out of order. I LOVE this book! I can’t wait to start book 3!

Very touching story!

Other then the fact that they splint one novel into two for financial gain, this was an awesome book. There is some angst and lots of tear jerking scenes. There was also several really awesome characters. Both the Hero and Heroine are emotionally stunted due to their childhood experiences but, they are both able to share and put their tragedies behind them and focus on the future. There are also a lot of beautiful relationships between friends that become family.

If you are a sensitive person, like me, you might want to have Kleenex available and avoid listening to this book in public. Definitely worth a credit.

Full of emotions

M. N. Forgy has lit me on fire! Devil's Dust series is absolutely incredible! Dannie has found her home with her father in the Devil's Dust MC group and has fallen for Shadow. You have to read/listen to The Scars That Define us to appreciate all the emotions that take you on Dannie and Shadow's journey to each other and through the club. M. N. Forgy is absolute perfection!
Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell are the perfect narrators for this series and hit the emotions right on cue. Great job guys!

Don't waste your time

This book has absolute no real story line. the main characters (dani & shadow) have great chemistry but there is absolutely no substance to this story. I should have given up after the first book but I listen to book 2 up until chapter 13 and gave up. The honest to god worst pointless story ever!! (sorry to be so harsh) save your credit! Not even Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell (who I enjoy and did a great job) can save this one.

Violence and mayhem!

This second audiobook in the Devil's Dust series was enjoyable, while being very violent. The main characters were separated by the heroines mothers actions at the end of the first book and most of this book was them coming to trust each other again. There were a lot of killings, backstabbing betrayal and distrust in this book. I almost felt like the violence was overshadowing the love story. The narration was excellent, as always with these two narrators.
