Loneliness suffocates the heart. Acceptance breaks down walls.
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.
HOW TO STALK JC!!
Thrash by J.C. Emery is the second book in Bayonet Scares Series, it is about the Forsaken Motorcycle. This is to be read after Ride, I really don't think it can be read as a standalone book. This book mostly takes place at the same time as Ride but you get to see the "clubs" view on things.
Nicole Whelan has always been a lost girl in the Forsaken Motorcycle Club and that is the way she sees herself being forever. Her mother was a lost girl, after all Now her mother has up and left them, the only dad she has ever known, is in prison, she has been left to raise her teenage brother. This makes her life way too complicated to deal with to have any chance at a real relationship. So, been a lost girl, doing the casual hook up thing is okay with her. That is until Duke. Don't you love that name? Duke is a strong manly name!!! It just oozes sex!
There has been a lot of crap happening in the club lately, Duke is watching his best friend fall in love for the only girl he couldn't have. This made his own loneliness hit him square in the face! Being in the club these guys go about doing thing a little different than most men. They have to keep up that "front" and not let anyone see them on the inside. Nichole, has walls built up herself and Duke is determine that he is going to break through them, even if it's one brick at a time.
Their relationship is on shaky ground and with so much crap going on in the club, that Duke thinks he needs to take care of himself, Nic is feeling like he is not good for her. He is not there for her at a critical time. They have real communication issues, but doesn't a lot of couple these day! These two are stubborn and hard headed. Perfect for each other, but can they get around these issues and just see how perfect they are for each other?
I give Thrash 4 platypires
or 4 stars however you like to count things!
Bama Love!! Roll Tide!! and Keep Reading Y'all
