What Might Kill Us
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
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 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.

Review: The Devil's Dust 5: What Might Kill Us
What Might Kill Us by M.N. Forgy is the fifth full-length book in her Devil's Dust series. It CAN be read as a standalone but this series is better enjoyed when read in order as part of the series, and even better when you include the spin-off series Sin City Outlaws. Told in dual POV this is the story of Bull and Anahi, better known as Little Bee.
M.N. Forgy does not hold back in her stories. There isn't ever any gratuitous violence and heartache but it's never an easy and happy journey either. We are reacquainted with Bull as he is spiraling into alcoholism still mourning the loss of Babs. His encounter with a beautiful mexican girl on the run from some gang members startles him out of his stupor, too late to save her in that moment but the impression she made on his soul in that brief meeting is lasting. When we meet Anahi it's when she is under the tyrannical rule and imprisonment by her uncle. She refuses to acquiesce to his demands and eventually he forces her hand into being his drug mule. This is how she winds up in the United States and fleeing into Devil's Dust territory.
The fallout from Bull and Anahi's brief encounter keeps growing and their fated attraction is definitely one of my favorites. Everything about them is so unlikely and yet so perfect.
A fabulous read - M.N. Forgy is definitely on my must-read author list!
