~Review: Thrash (Bayonet Scars #2) by J.C. Emery~

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 almost 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.

Love is never more precious than when it’s new.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

In the second book of the Forsaken MC Series, the heartbreak, drama, and violence continue.  The lives of all the characters introduced in the first book are threaded through Duke and Nicole’s story. It all starts with Duke staking his claim on Nicole and then leaving and not contacting her almost two months even after he returns.  

Duke has so many secrets but the biggest is his feelings for Nicole.  He knows that he should not want her because he does not feel worthy of her.  Nicole is everything that he needs and wants but does not deserve. Will he be able to stay away from her and not give into his need for her? After he claimed her, Duke thought everything was settled.  He did not count on Nicole not understanding his claim and her refusal to allow him to be with her.  Nicole thinks that Duke was just playing her and as a Lost Girl without his true claim she open game for any member of the club.  It really goes ballistic when she catches him with another girl at the club. Duke wants Nicole and is willing to do whatever is necessary to win her back.

Nicole has loved Duke for a long time but now all she wants to do is avoid him and his possessive attitude. She wanted to have a relationship with him but her plate was full with trying to raise her teenage brother and keep food on the table.  Enters an old ex-boyfriend that is determined to have Nicole back regardless of her telling him no way that she wants nothing to do with him.  He tries to entice her with helping her father to get out of jail and inferring that the club is not trying to help her dad.  Nicole walks away from Duke and tells him they are over!  Will Duke be able to convince her to give him a chance? Or has Nicole had enough of club life and the cost to those that are part of it?

As events begin to reveal not only the danger to the club but also to those that belong to the club you will become fascinated by the characters as they react to the situations they find themselves in. This is a book that tells of the harshness of life but it also affirms that love really exists for those that fight for it!  Read thing series, it is a must read for all MC lovers.
