Shadow has grown up among drug addicts, whores, and murderers. The only family he's ever trusted has been the Devil's Dust motorcycle club. He will do anything for a brother, even kill. In fact killing is so easy, he's made a career of it. His one regret is not being able to kill his own worthless mother. When Dani shows up with her provocative temper and innocent charm, Shadow begins to question his violent lifestyle. But can he trust her with his demons?
Will Dani and Shadow let family ties destroy them?
Shadow has had a rough life, with a mother who values drugs over her own flesh and blood, he had to learn how to survive on his own. It isn't until he finds the Devil's Dust MC that he truly knows what a family is. He would do anything for his family including kill. In fact taking the lives of others comes so easily for Shadow and he has thrived in making it into a generous income. Sex, drugs, and violence are what Shadow knows and makes him who he is.
Dani has lived under her mother's protective thumb all of her life, until the night her mother popped her protective bubble and sent her world into chaos. Introducing her to the father Dani knows nothing about and throwing her into her father's world of The Devil's Dust M.C. is a game changer for the sheltered young Dani.
When the sheltered innocent Dani and the dark sexy Shadow's worlds collide and rules are broken everything changes. Will Dani turn into a darker version of herself, or will Shadow be a better a man? Trust, lust, and relationships will be tested in What Doesn't Destroy Us.
I liked this story. M. N. Forgy knows how to deliver a story that keeps your attention. What Doesn't Destroy Us is the beginning of the Devil's Dust MC series. The overwhelming chemistry between Dani and Shadow kept me wanting more. Her sweet inexperience and his dark irresistible swagger made for some extremely smoking hot bedroom scenes. In addition to the characters, I easily became wrapped up in the plot of the story, it moves quickly and kept me wondering what would happen next. While I enjoyed the book I am giving it a four star review because I felt it was rushed at times and I would have loved to see more details throughout the story.
Written in duel point of view, What Doesn't Destroy Us is Narrated by Maxine Mitchell and Joe Arden.
Joe hit a home run with Shadow's character. He has a rough gravelly voice that fit the sexy biker well. Although the majority of the book is written in Dani's point of view, I really got caught up in the sound of Joe's voice.
Maxine has a clear quality to her voice and she knows how to keep your attention. She really helped to make Dani's personality come to life. I also enjoyed her depiction of Shadow when she needed to speak his part. My favorite part of the Maxine's narration is when she speaks for Dani's mother she nailed the character's personality to a tee!
All and All a good audiobook. This series has great potential and I am looking forward to book two. I recommend this audiobook to anyone who likes a good MC romance.
