“They said I was the kid that lives within his Shadow, no soul, no remorse.”
Shadow has only known darkness in his life. At a young age he has been dealing with drugs and violence. With a mother fighting her own addictions, Shadow can only survive by trusting himself. He was prospected into the Devil's Dust MC and is now a brother for life. The MC is the only family he has even known, and he'll fight to keep it that way. Unexpectedly, the Prez's daughter shows up and that when all hell breaks loose.
Dani's lived a tortured life, one controlled by a hateful mother and one without the knowledge and love of a father. One night Dani's life is turned upside down when her mother uproots her and takes her to California to seek the protection of her father and his MC.
"We need the type of help only an outlaw club like your father belongs to can give."
Meeting her father for the first time should be an overwhelming ordeal, however, this is over shadowed when Dani sets eyes on a certain.... blue eyed stranger.
"He's wearing a white shirt, with blue jeans and black motorcycle boots. He turns and I stop in my tracks. He's stunning, gorgeous even, and he Oozes bad boy, I can see the patch on the front of his vest which reads "SHADOW"
There's an instant attraction between Shadow and Dani. An attraction that has them both breaking all the rules.
“I don't care if my mother finds us, and he doesn't care if my father kills him. We cannot deny the attraction that consumes us, brands us.”
"I just slept with the devil's daughter. I'm a dead man walking. Messing with the president's daughter does not go without repercussions."
"She's Heaven and I'm Hell, when we're together angels cry and Hell freezes over."
This was an enjoyable read for a debut novel from this author, I was sorely disappointed with the cliffy however, I understand it all can't be a bed of roses. And I'm actually happy for the cliffy as I thought about it more. As dark as this was portrayed to be, I didn't think it was dark at all. And definitely need to be more rugged. There are some twists in the novel that I liked and it kept the story interesting however, more time needed to be spent on developing more of the back story to make it darker and the bikers rough.
