New Release Spotlight: The Lies Between Us by M.N. Forgy

The Lies Between Us (Book Four) in the Devil’s Dust MC Series by M.N Forgy is finally here!!

Cherry & Lip’s standalone romance is

Cherry’s life growing up was nothing short of a nightmare. Having an abusive father forced her to fend for herself from an early age. Bruised and emotionally broken, she finally escaped, running straight into the comfort that Lip's arms brought. In the beginning, everything seemed to fall into place perfectly. He made her forget the messed-up ways of her life. But secrets can’t stay neglected. They have a habit of revealing themselves regardless of the consequences. Terrified, Cherry can’t speak a word or she’ll lose it all.

Lip is no stranger to the criminal life. Growing up among convicts, he wanted nothing more than to show his worth. He’ll do anything for the club without question, including serving six years in prison. But nobody could have predicted life’s plan. Rugged, tattooed, and wanting nothing more than to have Cherry, Lip is no longer the man whom Cherry remembers. After his release, he came out a beast with more secrets and lies than his cage could hold.

After he leaves, I open his wallet, reading his name, address, weight. All of it.
Phillip DeLuca.” I taste his name running off my lips as I trace my finger over his picture. He’s so handsome. He’s the kind of guy most people would be afraid of, but not me. I want to get to know him. Lost in a daydream, my car door is yanked open.
Where the fuck is it, bitch?”
What?” I shriek as I’m pulled out of the car and slammed forward onto the hot hood. “I don’t have anything!” I scream, trying to pull free. He shoves me back down on the hood. His hand tangled in my hair.
Don’t think about moving,” he spits, his tone harsh. I roll my eyes and continue leaning over the hood. My heart slams against my chest in pure panic, and my hands shake. He pulls away and leans in to the car. Within seconds, he finds his wallet. Shit.
He peers at me with a fierce energy in his eyes. The intensity has me pulling off the hood, scared out of my mind.
You have some balls,” he mutters, shoving his wallet back in his pocket. His tone is soft and tender suddenly. I turn my head and eye him angrily.
Fuck you.” I cross my arms and lean my hip against the car. My choice of words more confident than I’m feeling.
He steps up to me and grabs my hips hard with both hands. My skin burns, and my mouth parts with desire. His brown eyes find mine, and his hands yank my body closer to his. I feel like all the air is sucked from my lungs as I search his dark eyes. Placing my hands on his solid chest to steady myself, my palms buzz with excitement.
You’d like that, wouldn’t you?” He looks me up and down and leans in close. “You’d like it if I pushed you over the hood of this car and fucked you ‘til your legs gave out.” His words feather against my lips, he’s so close. I hold my breath, willing my body to pull away, but I don’t move. Just when I think he’s going to kiss me, he grabs my hand and pulls it upward. I furrow my brows and watch as he pulls a pen from his back pocket, pulling the cap off with his teeth. He writes his number and the word ‘Lip’ on my hand.
Call me. Don’t make me come find you, Cherry.”
Cherry?” I ask out loud.
Your swimsuit,” he yells over his shoulder before starting his bike. I look down at my white shirt noticing my cherry bikini peeking out from the bust line. A smile creeps across my face. I know I shouldn’t like him, but I kind of do. Driving past me, he winks and I swear I sigh like a damn fool.

 ~ Excerpt One ~

“Oh.” I look up to see a dog’s droopy cheeks lift up as its tongue spills out the side of his mouth, his large teeth, white and jagged. A dribble of saliva falls onto my bare stomach. Gag. “What do you want?” I hold my hands up in surrender. I don’t want the big guy to attack me. Although he doesn’t look scary or threatening, he must weigh a hundred pounds at least. He has smooth brown hair that lays down across his forehead. A dusting of white blazes across his chest and toes. He’s cute. I tentatively brush my hand along his neck since he seems nice enough. I feel around for a tag or chip or anything to identify him, but there’s no collar.
“Where’s your owner?” I glance up and down the highway, but barely any cars pass. What the hell is a dog doing out here? He lowers his head into my hand and puts all his weight on me, begging for attention. I crack a smile. “You’re a good boy, huh?” I run my hand across his flabby cheek, keeping my movements soft. I don’t want to rattle him. This guy could definitely eat me.
I pull my hand back, but he leans forward, nudging me with his snout. I wrinkle my nose. Needy little fucker. I lean back against the car tire. The dog follows me as I lean back and plops his body beside me, sitting upright. Well he is definitely a she. I can see that loud and clear now.
“Sorry, girl. You’re just a big brute, aren’t you?” As if understanding my words, she widens her big brown eyes and nudges me again, this time my cheek while wagging her tail. I laugh as I pull out my pack of reds and light a cigarette. She lies down and rests her long head across my hurt knee.

~ Excerpt 2 ~

“I shouldn’t be here,” I mutter under my breath.
“Like in this town or here in the kitchen with me?” She quirks her head to the side and crosses her arms over her chest. It’s defensive, but not, at the same time. More likely a precautionary arm cross.
“Do you not like me? I know I can talk a lot, and I’m trying hard to be positive in this awkward situation. Sometimes it’s just one comment too much that can set someone off. I’m sure you can tell, but I’m normally really upbeat and positive.” She nods like a hundred times.
“Anything can happen at anytime, so you have to live every day like it’s your last. That guy just pisses me off.” She shakes her head, dragging in a loud breath.
“Listen, I’m not begging you to like me,” she says as she slams the refrigerator door shut. “It’s just that you’re new around here, and I saw you as a clean slate. I just want to be friends, so if you have a girlfriend, that’s fine.” She steps forward and grabs my forearm. I stare down at where our bare flesh connects. “Seriously, I’m not a relationship person. I don’t believe in relationships, but I do respect them. I’d never step on another girl’s toes. I just want to be friends.”
“I’m leaving the second my car is fixed.” My words ring with finality. Her hand falls from me as she steps backwards towards the fridge like I slapped her.

~ Excerpt 3 ~

When we get outside, I light my cigarette and lean against the fencing that’s falling apart. I guess I should add that to the list on the yellow, lined piece of paper next. One swift wind and the entire thing would collapse. Izzy stands so close to me that my smoke blows across her face in the cool breeze.
“Sorry, I’ll move over.”
“No, don’t. I like the smell.” She shuts her eyes and pulls in a breath full of second-hand smoke.
“Do you smoke?” I ask as I take another drag.
“I used to. Not anymore, though. I just eat a shit ton of food to make up for the urges.” She giggles and breathes in the smoke. She walks to the side of the building and leans against the stairwell.
She looks over at me with questions in her wide eyes.
“You’re going to make me answer even though it makes me uncomfortable? That’s not very nice.”
“Nobody said I was nice. I said welcoming.” She winks at me. My stomach flips. “Get to your two truths and a lie. Come on.” She whines and the tone her voice takes on reminds me instantly of Nat. I push the thought into the depths of my mind and pretend the deja vu never happened.
It’s the first time I ignore something good about Nat.
“My favorite place is a lake; I hate spaghetti; I destroy everything I touch.”

~ Excerpt 4 ~

“Do you feel it?” Her eyes dip low. Her breath skates across my face. My heart murmurs, my body trembles. I’m shaking my head because she can’t know how much I feel when she’s near. Or how much she affects me. I’ve felt this before, with Sarah and Nat. And it scared me just as much then.
She places her hand on my chest, out feet swishing past the others as we both tread. “Let me in, Sam. I can help you. I know it. Just trust me, and let go.” I know she can feel my stupid heart racing. My nervousness is transparent.
Her fingers brush down my jaw. They trail their way around my neck. I pull in a breath, hoping to calm down, but it doesn’t work. Her fingertips send hot pulses through my body. I only see Izzy right now. I only care about her happiness.
Her lips come down on mine and I’m shocked to reality. “What are you doing?” My voice comes out harsh as I push her away. “You can’t kiss me!”
I dive under the water and swim towards the shore like I’m competing in a one hundred meter dash. I’ll walk all the way back to the shop if I have to. I can’t be near her. Not right now. Maybe not ever. How dare she try to kiss me after what I’ve told her? All the warnings?
Trust her? What a fucking joke. She just broke any trust we had built. She ruined what we could have had. I thought we’d be friends, but now I just…can’t. Not after I felt her lips against mine.

3D A Reliant Love

Nathalie Carter wants one thing: independence. She has paid her dues by living at home under her parents’ watchful eyes, earning grades to give her a ticket out and joining clubs she had no interest in to get into college.
She plans to experience things she believes every new adult should—from falling in love to playing beer pong and pulling an all-nighter to skipping class because she’s too hungover. But nothing ever seems to go as planned, and she gets pulled into a world she never imagined existed.
Samuel Torrington’s past refuses to release him from its vise-like grip; but he has a plan, and once his senior year of college is over, he can finally move away and start anew. His addictions help him get through day-to-day life, but he’s constantly battling darker demons.
Fate brings the two together, and chance takes them on a roller coaster ride that neither would dare hop off. Within destiny’s grasp, they realize there are two things impossible to fight—addiction and attraction.
