What Might Kill Us (The Devil’s Dust #5) by M.N. Forgy


Brotherhood is what Bull bleeds and all that he knows.
Being the king of The Devil’s Dust and surrounded by easy women was his everyday… until having his heart broke rooted him to the bottom of a whiskey bottle.
Heartbroken, and drowning in lost memories he’s unsure of the direction of his life, when the answer – consisting of a terrified Mexican girl- nearly knocks him off his feet.
Determined to get his act together and rectify his club, he rides to Texas for answers, only to be confronted with the emotional ghosts he isn’t ready to deal with.
He sees Anahi, and he wants her.
But she may come with more baggage than Bull is ready for.

Anahi used to be prim and proper. She used to wear dresses and keep up appearances to impress people she didn’t know. I guess you could say she was a fucking lady.
But that was when she lived in Mexico with her parents.
Before her uncle turned on her.
Before, the only man she ever loved, her step-brother, betrayed her.
Before she was forced to be a drug mule for the Cartel.
Evening gowns a lost memory, expensive heels traded for boots, and a nine millimeter in her hand instead of a limited edition purse. Anahi sets aside everything she’s ever known including the fairytale stories her mother told her about America.
She’s angry, determined, and looking for a way out.

Sometimes I get to know these books intimately.  Not like *that* “intimately”, but intimately.  Inside and out.  Read it several times.  Analyze it.  Reread it.  Answer 5,098,348,234 texts with the author discussing it.  I may be talking about this book.  I’m not sure.

Anyway.  I may have read this book a few times.  I can honestly say each reread of this book I loved it more and more.  Anahi and especially Bull, bled into my heart and mind.  Somehow Forgy forced me to really connect with Bull and Anahi which is somewhat abstract as I have nothing personally relatable to the characters.  I mean, newsflash… I’m not a bearded MC President.  Not sure if you knew that or not.  But I loved, loved, loved this hero and heroine (totally different than heroin).  Initially I was petrified that Anahi would be a sniveling little spoiled brat and we’d have nothing to bond over.    And then I was worried Bull would be the cliche old MC President.


Epic story.  Epic characters.  A little something different than the norm.

This is the 5th in the series, and while you probably will be able make out what is happening without reading the other four, I do recommend it.   Each installment I feel like Forgy has upped her own game in her story telling and development.  The raw and grittiness shines through (kind of an oxymoron, huh) in this dark but romantic MC read.

I dig.  Keep ’em coming Forg.
