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 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.

YUM, YUM, YUM, YUM, YUMMY!! This book is AMAZING.
From point go I loved Nicole. She's a strong girl that has spend most of her life taking care of herself and her brother. Here mum is a low-life and her dad is in prison from club business.
She's also always liked Duke. They was friends in school and she liked him then but never told him.
Duke, what can I say about him? I loved him in Ride and I love him more in Thrash. He has also always liked Nic but never told her until one night when he managed to get her in his bed. Once the deed was done, Duke was called out for a job from the club. He goes but not before telling Nic that she is his and his only.
You would think that would make things simple.... That would be a big fat NO!
With things left so abruptly their relationship is off to a bad start communication wise. They don't see each other for weeks. Nicole is staying away from the club, as is what an old lady would do and Duke doesn't chase his woman, he's waiting for her to show.
Then Nic hears about a girl Duke is hanging with a lot called Princess... Yep you know her from Ride!
When Duke gets sick of waiting he shows up at Nic's work only to tell her to get her ass to the club to talk. Oh she's ready to talk alright... she turns up and lets rip at him about this 'Princess' girl in front of all the other members of the club. BIG MISTAKE.
He puts her in her place and the get down and dirty. Then she leaves telling him he'll never have her again.
That is until she finds out who Princess is. She goes to look for him only to find him getting down and dirty with a club whore.
Things get mixed up and the following day there is a fight. Duke is pissed at one of his brothers. And it's all to do with Nic.
This is all like the first few chapters. It gets more HOT, funnier and more shitstorms brewing.
It's freaking great!
I laughed, got choked up, felt heart-broken, felt happiness but most of all I felt the big biker lovin'!
Lady bits a' droolin' lol
In Thrash you get the relive some events that happened in Ride but in Duke and Nicoles POV. I loved this because you see a side to it that you never thought happened and you see bits continued further than we did in Ride.
I give Thrash 5 BIG BAD BIKING STARS!
