THRASH (Bayonet Scars, No. 2)

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.

    Originally posted on my blog: Tangled Up In Books

    I received a copy of this book from InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review. In no way did this sway either my review or my rating!

    Well if I wasn't already hooked after reading Ride, book one, I'm not even sure how to describe how I'm feeling about this series after finishing Thrash. Though I absolutely loved Ryan and Alex's story, there was just something about this one with Duke and Nicole that I felt even deeper. I was already a huge fan of Duke's before starting this so getting to continue on with his story and get to know Nic better had me all sorts of excited. And there were no disappointments here. It was just as dark, just as frustrating and just as emotional as it's predecessor. All in the very best of ways.

    Nic had made a few appearances in the first book as Alex fought hard to befriend her and you could see Nic's reluctance through Alex's eyes. She was done with club life and people associated with the club. She seemed all kinds of tough and screwed up and I was very interested in knowing more of her story. The more I got to know her story the more endearing she became to me. Sure she's got an attitude and a mouth on her but this girl has had it rough and she struggles in silence with a determination to make it on her own because she can only depend on herself. Yet it's not hard to see through the cracks and see the girl beneath the though as nails exterior. Her baggage is full of things like abandonment and abuse and so much other stuff. Stuff that would have had me giving up so long ago and yet she fights everything and makes so many sacrifices to keep her and her brother together. She's just all kinds of awesome.

    I had already started to fall for Duke before I even started this one. Sure he's just as much of a jerk as the rest of the Forsaken guys but there's also this playful side to him that always spread a grin over my face. He likes to push people right past their limits and then sometimes keep going. And not just playfully sometimes he does it just to be a complete jerk. But it didn't take very long into this book to see that while he has those sides of him there's also this gentleness, that you don't expect to see, when it comes to Nicole. He's not perfect and he screws up...a lot and he says the wrong things...a lot. But his persistence and certainty when it came to his future and Nic would melt my heart. I'm such a sucker.

    I loved the fact that the timeline for this story runs parallel to the first book. So sometimes there was a whole outside perspective to things and situations that were happening in Ride. And seeing the events that would eventually lead up to situations that happened as well. Like one of the times when Ryan had flipped a switch and went from hot to cold suddenly and I thought to myself 'well that's just Ryan being Ryan' but come to find out there was actually a whole explosion that led to it. Plus finally being able to see one of the most major events that happened in Ride but we only saw it in Alex's point of view, with Thrash we got to see the Forsaken side of it through Duke. Loved it!

    For most of the book I thought this one was going to be a bit milder than the first one. I mean there was still the frustrations, the attitudes and the ups and the downs but I had assumed that we'd just be dealing with the aftermath of the craziness that goes down in Ride. Little did I realize that the end of Thrash would present itself with a whole new crazy all in its own. Craziness that perfectly lays the groundwork for us to expect some serious stuff to go down as this series progresses and I can't wait to see how it all goes down. With two situations of unsettled business I know we've not seen anything yet. And I'm pretty freaking nervous!

    As you can see I'm still just as hooked on this series and the guys of the Forsaken MC. They're all gruff and harsh and have mean streaks in them like you wouldn't believe but there's still just a bit of something about each one of them that gives you hope that they're not hard all the way to their cores. At the end of the day, sure, they do a lot of questionable stuff and they give each other hell and they fight and disagree. But each one of them would lay down their life for each other and their families if it came down to it and I can't wait to continue on and get to know some of the rest of them better!

    After reading Ride, I was so excited to start this book, but I wasn't sure if I was going to love Nicole or not. Thrash continues with all the drama of the Mancuso and the Forsaken, but with added of angst of Nicole's insecurities and her past.

    Duke loves being a Forsaken but he has always had a soft spot for Nicole. Since Nicole is one of the club's lost girls, Duke has been waiting for an opening for Nicole. Once she walks through his door, he immediately claims her. Nicole has always liked Duke but she is scared of getting hurt again. On a weak moment she goes to Duke to only have her whole world turn around.

    Nicole was a meanie for most of the book. To help protect herself she projects angry to keep her heart at bay but for Duke he knows Nic his future old lady so he waits it out until Nic gives up her angry side and gives him his heart. Don't get me wrong Duke makes some grade A jerk mistakes on his journey to win Nic's heart.

    I'm so curious how this series is going to play out with all the drama outside and within the club. For me so far this was my least favorite of the series because of my reading funk Nicole's insecurities and meanness drove me batty. I loved Duke and I friggin' adore this series but Nicole's issues were to repetitive thankfully Duke was there to save the day and prove to Nicole that she is loved truly, and will always be part of this MC world.

    As I write these reviews for the Bayonet Scars Series, especiall

    As I write these reviews for the Bayonet Scars Series, especially given how many MC books I’ve been devouring lately, and how much I moan about the quantity over the quality in this area, I will say that I am surprised this series is not more widely well-known and recommended because hell, yes it’s gritty, brutal and pretty graphic in places but it’s well written, with a different spin on the MC storylines, and when the lines in a scene put it into your head in 3D, while your heart is breaking because it packs that much of a visceral punch, then for me they’ve brought that world to life and that’s a job well done.




    Thrash (#2)




    Loneliness suffocates the heart. Acceptance breaks down walls.




    Thrash is told from both Duke and Nicole's POVs as well as crossing some of the same timeline as Ride, and so, while telling us their story and also continuing to move the series forward, JC manages to enhance the previous book as well.




    Nicole has her hands full taking care of her teenage brother, and just surviving life one day at a time. Her step father, a Forsaken Brother, is in jail so she has had no choice but to take on responsibilities that are overwhelming her. No stranger to club life she likes to party and forget but chooses physical release with no complications over a relationship and falls into the Lost Girl role, although she avoids being in Duke's bed as they have danced around each other for many a year and he's a complication she can't afford.




    Duke has always wanted Nicole, her fire and strength call to him but the timing has always been off. Then one night changes everything when he succeeds in getting her into his bed. Cue the birds, flowers and HEA you think? Yeah not so much! Duke declares “mine” in fabulous biker alpha style but then disappears for weeks to deal with Mafia business connected to the Principessa. The lack of contact and information from him leads to a host of miscommunications between these two. Nicole is proud, stubborn and has a temper on her, believing he did not mean his claiming she declares it finished before its even really started, and so Duke does the stupid – well actually he does the nasty - with a nasty club whore. Oh I had the feels for Nic at this point so bad, life was treating her really sh*tty, brother with an attitude and huge chip on his shoulder, dad in jail, ex-boyfriend lurking with his own agenda and then her crush of many years gives her a high followed by the lowest of the low. 




    So……………..




    Do Duke and Nic work past all the issues and misunderstandings to find their hea?




    Does the club resolve the issues caused by protecting Alex and taking on the Mafia?




    What does the ex-boyfriend want?




    Is Ryan still a pr*ck?!?!




    I'm not telling, it's a review not the whole story! 




    Thrash is a great read, I loved Duke and Nicole, their developing, stumbling relationship, the perspective on events, each other and club life made for a great read, real and gritty, believable if harsh and a great MC book. Oh and that temper of Nicole's I mentioned…………..you really wouldn't want to be on the wrong side of that!

         Following the events from Ride, the first in the Beyonet Scars MC Series, Thrash focuses on Nicole and Duke. Nicole's family has always been part of the MC, and when her father is jailed for events out of her control, its the club that helps out. Struggling to raise her younger, headstrong brother, Nicole is barely surviving. Duke has finally had enough and claims Nicole for his own. No longer does she need to shoulder the responsibility alone or be alone, Duke is desperate to prove himself to her.
         Having read Ride in a few short hours, I immediately purchased Thrash. I had loved the camaraderie between Ryan and Duke in the first book so I had to read Duke's happily ever after too! A few things threw me off in this one though that tempered my enjoyment of the book. The book is arranged to have mostly occurred during the events of the first book, but some of the things didn't exactly jive for me. The timing of certain events seemed different and things just were...off a little, if you know what I mean.
          Beyond the timing of the story, Nicole and Duke's relationship seemed a bit forced in places. The story alludes to the fact that Nicole had been a “lost girl” or available for the club. Beyond a few just random references, there isn't much more told. I didn't understand if we were supposed to allude to more than there was, but it just seemed a bit strange to me.
         Even though there were a few inconsistencies, I did like Duke and Nic's story. I loved how loyal Nicole was to her family and her desperate desire to raise her brother. Duke's loyalty is tested and his friendships threatened but ultimately love triumphs which is always lovely. Sexy, steamy and fun, I can't wait to see what's coming next.

    Not as good as the first one

    I had great hopes for Thrash, since I loved Alex and Ryan's story so much. I couldn't get any feeling for Nicole. Her character seemed rushed. I think if there were more "history" examples of how she and Duke got together and her life growing up, it might make Nic more believable.

    There has been a rash of motorcycle club books lately. I’ve read some great one, some not so great ones and some that solidly in the “meh” category of book enjoyment. “Thrash” was definitely in the great end of the spectrum. It’s hot, it’s complicated, and it’s a story that I haven’t read before in this subgenre.
    This is Duke and Nicole’s story. She is a club whore who has a complicated life. She doesn’t want any strings, as she’s struggling not only with past hurts but also has been left to raise her brother. One night, she lands in Duke’s bed. He senses something in her that he doesn’t want to let go and he starts to pursue her ardently. She’s not having it, partly because she doesn’t do relationships, and partly because she just doesn’t see herself as “Old Lady” material. But he breaks her down. The big question is can they both put the past behind them and more forward?
    This book can be read as a standalone, but I think you’ll get more out of it if you read it with the first book, “Ride”. I have to say, I think I may have liked this book better than the first, though. There are so many motorcycle books out there right now, but I have yet to read one where a woman goes from club whore to old lady…I liked that.
    Another highlight of this book is Duke. I mean, let’s face it, we mostly read these books for the men and Duke is everything you expect and want in a book like this. He’s such a jerk, but underneath it all is a good guy. He’s been a man whore himself, but he meets Nicole and it changes him for the better, and once he opens up that part of him, there’s no closing it. He pursues her with everything he’s got and to read it just makes you sigh that happy sigh. He’s awesome.
    What’s interesting about the writing of this book is that it starts before “Ride” and has an intersecting timeline of events. I think that can be tough to pull off, but it really works here. The continuity of the story adds so much to the overall series as you read.
    Overall, I enjoyed this book quite a lot. The sex is off the charts hot, which we all know is requirement for me, and it does not disappoint. I am absolutely looking forward to more in this series! 4.5 stars

    Loved this story. Duke is a dick with a good heart but aren't they all? Loved how this book filled in gaps from the first story while giving a new story. Like for series to weave the first books into following books so you don't leave everyone totally behind in the new books. Worthreading and I hope to see more books in this series
