The Devil’s Dust MC has a list of new threats to the club’s lifestyle. Dani, to prove her loyalty, is trying to embrace a part of herself that she never knew existed until now. A sinful beast lurking beneath her surface has been awakened and is ready to eliminate anyone that stands in its way. Looking at her stained hands, she rinses the blood from them. She resigns herself to innocence lost and welcomes her thirst for more blood.

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?

Review –

 This ijstallmemt of Thr Devil’s Dust series dives right in where we ended in What Doesn’t Destroy Us and  at this point Dani tries to return to the clubhouse to prove her innocence and what ensues is chaos. The story switches between Shadow and Dani’s POV, which I liked. The story immerses you in the Devil’s Dust motor cycle club and the feelings of the members,especially Locks, about Dani.

Dani and Shadow have their work cut out for them as their relationship is in turmoil while dealing with traitors in their midst.  No one is who you expect. While Shadow is nursing his hurt feelings and not trusting Dani, she finds a job as a part-time ballet instructor and even dates and well to do man. When Shadow finds out about this he goes ballistic and kills the man and disposes of the body. He does like wise with Dani’s mother, who is a member of the FBI, when he finds out that she wants Dani to go back to New York with her. 

Dani bonds with some of the girls of the club in a beat down of a man who beat up Bab’s niece and later they are hunted down one by one and badly beaten and Bab’s is a victim of a revenge hit and run and dies. Bull finds out who is responsible and makes a deal saving Dani’s life and letting the other motor cycle club run drugs or guns on their side of town. Shadow kills the man who beat up Dani and drove the car that killed Bab’s. Someone aims a Shadow and Bobby jumps in front of him and dies (or so we think)

Shadow and Dani make up with lot of hot steamy sex and she gets pregnant.

Two years later she’s expecting her second baby, a girl, who they will name Deliah,after Bab’s. Zane is now almost two and the spitting image of his father. Shadow proposes to Dani. End.

The next book will feature Bobby and Jessica (Doc).
