**Review & Giveaway** WHAT DOESN'T DESTROY US (The Devil's Dust #1) by M.N. Forgy


When Dani's sheltered life is turned upside down by her mother's secrets, she finds protection with her estranged outlaw father. Against all warnings, she falls for bad boy biker, Shadow. He is beast and beauty sealed in a leather cut with a gun holster. Can Dani learn to live within the Club rules? Is she more like her father than she could imagine?

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?





M.N. Forgy's debut novel What Doesn't Destroy Us is a MC club story that shows a more gritty and "real" side in a biker romance.  The Devil Dust MC is a club that doesn't shy away from murder, drugs or guns and Shadow is the Sargent At Arms in the club and up until he meets Dani he deals with his dark side by killing for hire.  Dani is a sheltered innocent that suddenly has her life turned upside down when she discovers where she really belongs.

What Doesn't Destroy Us was an interesting take on a MC story with a few twists and turns I NEVER saw coming.  M.N. Forgy was able to take two characters that seem to be complete opposites and mesh them together in a way that makes sense (while heating up your Kindle).  I enjoyed getting to know the cast of characters that make up The Devil's Dust MC and hope to get to dive deeper into these personalities in books to come, especially Shadow.

What Doesn't Destroy Us is a start to a new series and the ending will leave you shocked and confused (maybe a bit mad too).  I didn't see the direction M.N. Forgy was going to take this book and while I applaud the twist I am still trying to wrap my head around the last 20%.  If you are a fan of MC biker books then M.N. Forgy is a new voice in a genre that you should try.  I will keep my eye out for the next book in the series since I need to know how this puzzle is going to get solved.



M.N. Forgy was raised in Missouri where she still lives with her family. She's a soccer mom by day and a saucy writer by night. M.N. Forgy started writing at a young age but never took it seriously until years later, as a stay-at-home mom, she opened her laptop and started writing again. As a role model for her children, she felt she couldn't live with the "what if" anymore and finally took a chance on her character's story. So, with her glass of wine in hand and a stray Barbie sharing her seat, she continues to create and please her fans
