Loneliness suffocates the heart. Acceptance breaks down walls.
As a Lost Girl to the Forsaken Motorcycle Club, Nicole Whelan knows how to party. She’s not cut-out for relationships and her life is way too complicated for anything more than casual encounters. But one night when she falls into Duke’s bed at the clubhouse, he sees something in her that he can’t let go of—no matter how many times she tries to run.
Having been left to raise her teenage brother, Jeremy, she’s already got her hands full and isn’t looking for anymore complications. But Duke’s just watched his best friend fall for the only girl he couldn't have, and then lose her so shortly after, shaking him to his core. Faced with his own loneliness, he’s more determined than ever to break down Nic’s walls and show her that he can be good for her; but he’s got a bad track record and she’s got a bad temper. Changing his ways isn’t easy when he’s not sure what he’s even changing for.
The violence and turmoil are at an all-time high, and Forsaken is in a vulnerable place when a twist of fate breathes new life into the club. It’s a much-needed beacon of hope for the embattled biker family, even if everyone’s not exactly on board. With Duke and Nic’s relationship already on shaky ground, and something even more important at stake, the Forsaken Motorcycle Club will fight like hell to keep their family together and whole.

But Thrash, Thrash I LOVED. There is something about Duke that is so just so damn hot. Ryan is still a dick, a grade A dick... But Duke. Duke is the one that makes your toes curl. He's so alpha. So hot. So.... Yum.
Everything about him and Nic is so messed up. From the start of of their relationship to the shit that goes down. She's so stubborn you want to slap her. And Jeremy is so disrespectful you want to punch him. Lay down the law, teach him to appreciate what she is doing. But Duke. Duke handles it all.And the whole time, I was like.. It's about time!
Now don't get me wrong. Nic handles her shit when it comes to Dawn. And if you ask me, that chick got off easy. But to me, Nic and Duke are a perfect couple when together. They balance each other out. Though she may need to learn to bite her tongue a little... Okay a lot. But still. She's a strong woman, and that's exactly what Duke needs.
I love the Nic character. I mean she doesn't hold anything back, is so strong, independent. I love that about her. She doesn't need a man. She also doesn't want to believe anything that Duke is offering and let's be honest, who can blame her. But once he starts to tell her what he wants, what she means, I wish she would have believed him and stopped pushing so much. But he doesn't step back. He keeps pushing. And he comes through for her every time he needs him. The food, diesel, Darren, Jeremy, and let's not forget Ryan. Seriously when Ryan and Duke sat at the table together, I had this giddily little school girl grin on my face.
I loved it. And I love that Thrash answers some questions I had after Ride. This book was so good. What I felt Ride was lacking, Thrash makes up for. In Spades. This book is so good. I give it 5 hearts. Oh so goooooood. I want more!!
