Road Captain of the Devil’s Dust Motorcycle Club, Bobby has the scars to prove just how dangerous his life is. He gives the world he knows hell and loves every moment of it. Wearing a panty-dropping grin along the way, his fierce life has never been a problem for him, until her. Jessica is the only female who has him distracted in his game. After taking him to bed, she’s the only woman to tell him to take a hike. Waking with her gone, he can’t resist her pull. He’s seen the marks on her body, ones which tell the horrors she’s lived through. He’s also seen the fear in her eyes when she lets herself become weak to his advances. Bobby has a decision to make. Can he help Jessica, or will it mean giving up his carefree life?
Jessica, also known as Doc, lives life in fear. Years back, she ran to the Devil’s Dust for protection, seeking the demise of her abusive, dominant husband. Her mind and soul tortured by her past, she can’t allow herself to move forward. The only thing in her sight is her daughter’s safety. Even if she has the attention of one particular tattooed biker, she can’t succumb to his charm and drag her daughter back into a world of danger, no matter how much he thinks he can save her.
Mistakes will be made.
Fears will be faced.
Pain will be remembered.
Can Bobby and Jessica survive the dangers they bring upon themselves?
All the girls I’ve slept with over the years, they were all there trying to fill a void that Jessica planted in my soul. There are a million reasons why I should have let Jessica walk out of my life, a million rejections when I should have taken the hint, but I just didn’t care. I stayed and kept pushing because of how I felt when we were together.
When the abuse she tolerated from her husband begins to spill over to her daughter, Jessica finally decides that enough is enough and flees life as she knows it. With no plan or prospects for how to stay hidden from her husband and his long-reaching connections, she finds herself at the Devil’s Dust Motorcycle Club, offering her services as a doctor in exchange for protection. As soon as Bobby sees her enter the clubhouse, despite her being bloody and beaten, he is drawn to her and feels compelled to protect her, even after the threat is gone…..or is it?
This is the third full book in the DD series, which also includes a novella. I am not sure about the others, but I had no problems reading this as a stand-alone. I am curious now to know how much time and attention Bobby may have received in the prior books, and also if Jessica appears at all, since there is a time gap of a few years in this book between when she approaches the MC and when the crux of the story takes place.
The characters were likable, and allusions to the circumstances surrounding Shadow and Dani have me wanting to read their story, which I believe takes place across books one and two. This book was just okay for me, though I think maybe I would have been more invested if I had read the entire series. Don’t get me wrong, it is not a bad book by any means – I’d give it 3.5 to 4 stars just on the romance and conflicts between Jessica and Bobby. I am just not sure if this is a book that will stick with me.
