Blog Tour ✭ The Fear That Divides Us by M.N. Forgy +Review & Excerpt
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?
Meet Doc & Bobby in book three of The Devil’s Dust Series!
**Can be read as a stand alone**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.
If you’re a Devil’s Dust series reader, you’ve been well acquainted with Bobby and Doc. The other characters are loved in their own ways, but this couple was always a mystery that screamed to be investigated.
❝ I killed a man for a woman I knew nothing about; still don’t. But with killing him, I thought I would save you, set you free, Jessica, but I didn’t. Something still haunts you,❞
Jessica Wren and her child fled a monster with the help of the Devil’s Dust MC. In exchange for her services—loyalty and medical necessities—they “took care” of her abusive, sad excuse for a husband.
Ever since the night that unconscious blonde made an appearance in his club, Bobby Whitfield was never able to stay away or control the feelings Jessica stirred up in him. He made sure her and her daughter had a living chance in this world and he never stopped making it his mission to keep them safe and cared for.
Keeping a strictly sexual relationship, Doc and Bobby have been able to quench their carnal desires, but their heart’s desires are a completely different animal. Bobby’s never been one for serious relationships, but Doc makes him want the whole package. While Doc may have some deeper feelings buried within her, his bad biker ways dissuade her from pursuing them.
The two have countless hurdles to face, but their paths crossed for a reason and they may be the only ones that can heal and tame each other.
❝ The idea of falling in love with someone, giving them your heart, the organ that keeps you alive, is suicide.❞
To say I’ve been eagerly anticipating this book is putting it very lightly. Dani and Shadow are my favorites of course, but Bobby nestled his way into my heart since he was first mentioned in book one. Despite his promiscuous ways, he's a really kind-hearted man that always has the best intentions. He has a light, humorous side to him, but can instantly turn into a protective alpha male. The connection he has with Doc was something that instantly pulled me in from the beginning of the series. It was blatantly obvious that those two had something otherworldly. The ease of how he connected with Doc’s daughter in this book spoke volumes. It was just one more cherry on top of the perfect Bobby & Doc sundae.
As much as I loved this book, I was left wanting more from Doc’s background. I don’t know why or what it was in particular, but I just felt like something from her past was missing. Maybe having more flashbacks as oppose to her relaying her past to Bobby. Or perhaps seeing more of the happy times leading up to the horrible change in her husband’s demeanor would have given me the feeling of completeness.
I will say this was not an easy book to get through, and I mean that in regards to the subject matter. Even if you’ve personally not been in an abusive relationship or don't know someone who has, you will no doubt be able to feel what Doc went through in her scarred past. It was painful, brutally so, and so very vivid.
❝ Don’t fear the pain; fear the message behind it,❞
I applaud M.N. Forgy for tackling such touchy subjects and combining them to create a powerful story for a beloved character. I recommend this to anyone looking for an unorthodox MC romance. There’s certainly bikers all over this book, but there is a much deeper, electrifying story circling around that will grip you from start to finish.
