Meet Doc & Bobby in book three of The Devil’s Dust Series!
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?
Do I fight my fear? Triumph the terror wracking my mind and soul and gamble on the chance that Bobby can reset it all, make me forget my past and actually restart and build a life without being afraid? Or do I do what I know best, resisting, and run home behind my door with the security of three deadbolts and wonder what if?
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!
What I say: I seem to have fallen into the habit of reading books out of reading order or coming to them midway through a series. Thankfully this didn't matter with The Fear That Divides Us because although it is the third book in The Devils Dust MC series, it works well as a standalone.
As a newbie to the series I was expecting to be confused but I found the story easy to follow and became quickly immersed in Jessica's 'Doc' and Bobby's complicated and dramatic world.
(No spoilers - this is in the blurb): Jessica has lived in fear for a long time and doesn't trust anybody. She ran to the Devils Dust MC with her daughter to escape from her abusive husband. Jessica is scarred from her horrible past and won't give any man the power to control her ever again. Having escaped from one cage she doesn't fancy being placed into another. She instead focuses on her career as a doctor and looking after her daughter. Dating a biker is pretty low on her list of priorities.
Bobby has been drawn to Jessica from the first time he met her, but doesn't understand why she constantly pushes him away when other women are desperate to trap him. I loved how he looks after Jessica and her daughter, albeit mainly from afar. He makes some big sacrifices to keep them safe.
There were some interesting twists and a few shocks. The book covers some pretty troubling topics but it also focuses on some fun and happy aspects too. Bring on the next instalment...
