Loneliness suffocates the heart. Acceptance breaks down walls.Buy the Book •
As a Lost Girl to the Forsaken Motorcycle Club, Nicole Whelan knows how to party. She’s not cut-out for relationships and her life is way too complicated for anything more than casual encounters. But one night when she falls into Duke’s bed at the clubhouse, he sees something in her that he can’t let go of—no matter how many times she tries to run.
Having been left to raise her teenage brother, Jeremy, she’s already got her hands full and isn’t looking for anymore complications. But Duke’s just watched his best friend fall for the only girl he couldn’t have, and then almost lose her so shortly after, shaking him to his core. Faced with his own loneliness, he’s more determined than ever to break down Nic’s walls and show her that he can be good for her; but he’s got a bad track record and she’s got a bad temper. Changing his ways isn’t easy when he’s not sure what he’s even changing for.
The violence and turmoil are at an all-time high, and Forsaken is in a vulnerable place when a twist of fate breathes new life into the club. It’s a much-needed beacon of hope for the embattled biker family, even if everyone’s not exactly on board. With Duke and Nic’s relationship already on shaky ground, and something even more important at stake, the Forsaken Motorcycle Club will fight like hell to keep their family together and whole.
Love is never more precious than when it’s new.
If you liked Ride book #1 in this series even a little bit you are going to LOVE Thrash!! I think most would agree that Duke was a fan favorite in the first book and his and Nicole’s story does not disappoint! Thrash starts out before Ride takes place and then coincides with Ride throughout most of the book. And guess what? Dual POV’s! I am a huge fan of Dual POV’s when they are done right. JC Emery nailed it with this one! I felt everything Duke and Nicole were going through. The heartbreak, the passion, the fear, the love, the joy and the sweet mothereffin REVENGE.
“You let me have it, and now THIS.IS.MINE.”-Duke
Duke is the Forsaken MC Clubs Secretary. He is definitely a man whore and a biker to the core. Strong, sexy, protective and oh so persistent in his pursuit of the woman he WILL make his, Nicole. *Sigh* Love him!! Of course he f’s up a long the way. But hey, he’s Forsaken! Even with the mistakes he makes a long the way you know deep down he is a good guy.
I freaking loved Nicole! It was so awesome to see a different side of her than what we got in the first book. I couldn’t believe the crap she was dealing with at home with her brother. Nicole is not just some Lost Girl that the club uses. There is so much more to her and her connection to the club and how they were failing her blew me away. Seriously. And the crap Duke pulls on her! ahhh! I now totally get why she was keeping her distance from the club in the first book. She is strong, loyal, faithful and resilient. EVERYTHING a biker Old Lady should be.
I would normally rate this book 4 Stars, BUT there is a REVENGE scene at the end of the book that is so EPIC I have to give it 4.5 Stars <3
*A few things before I go. This is a series about BIKERS in a MOTORCYCLE CLUB. So no, these are not a fluffy pretty books with perfect men.
** This is a series. Each book is about a different couple but I highly recommend reading the books in order.
RIDE(Bayonet Scars, #1)
Death comes in Armani. Salvation comes in leather.
Principessa to the Mancuso crime family, Alexandra knows a thing or two about living outside the bounds of the law. Suffocated by the future her father has laid out for her, she makes a choice she can’t take back, changing the entire trajectory of her life.
Thrust into the dark and dangerous world of the Forsaken Motorcycle Club for her own protection, Alex finds herself faced with the last thing she needs right now: the man of her dreams. He’s sex in leather, the devil incarnate, and one hell of a kisser. But he’s also off-limits. Ryan Stone can be her friend, but he’s forbidden to be her lover.
Third-generation Forsaken, Ryan knows nothing other than life on two wheels, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. He enjoys the many privileges that come with the patch, and the only laws he recognizes are the ones set-forth by his club. That is, until who he wants more than anything isn’t allowed on the back of his bike —or in his bed. Balancing his desire for her body, and need to keep her safe, Ryan tries to keep Alex at a distance. Finally having made a choice for herself, she’s done hearing the word “no” and will push boundaries even Ryan himself doesn’t dare cross.
Love is never more tempting than when it’s forbidden.
