The Fear That Divides Us by M.N. Forgy

The Fear That Divides Us (The Devil's Dust, #3)
The Fear That Divides Us by M.N. Forgy

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

I have been anxiously awaiting Doc’s book since finishing The Scars That Define Us and it was far more than I ever hoped for. By her behavior, it was apparent that she endured a lot before she got involved with the Devil’s Dust MC, but the level of depravity and abuse she suffered at her husband’s hands was horrifying. Equally as shocking was how she came to be the MC’s physician on call. In the vast majority of MC romances that I have read, the club’s doctor is almost always either a doctor who has lost his medical license or one who charges the club an exorbitantly large amount of money to NOT report services rendered. Jessica aka Doc meets neither of those criteria and she is a woman – which I can’t say I’ve ever encountered in my reading either. However, as I read the Prologue I was in awe of her as she negotiated an exchange of services with the Devil’s Dust MC that did not put her on her back.

I will straight up admit that I have read so many books since reading books one and two, that I really didn’t remember Bobby. That said, Ms. Forgy wrote The Fear That Divides Us in such a way that I could read it without having read the previous books in the series and still enjoyed it – which is kind of how I approached Bobby’s character. I liked how he was protective of Doc from the very beginning, but his possessiveness wasn’t revealed until he learned of Doc’s engagement – what a clusterf*** that was! I enjoyed watching the shift in Bobby’s personality from the hungover guy who wakes up in a sorority sister’s bed in chapter one to the faithfully monogamous man who stepped up to the plate when he realized that he wanted and deserved more from Doc. Even if it didn’t end well (<= massive understatement), I loved the date that Bobby took Doc on and that she enjoyed the boat ride as much as he did.

Whether she wanted to admit it or not, Doc was just as much of a part of the MC as the old ladies. At one point in the book, Bobby was the only one who knew how far she would go for the club. However, by the end of The Fear That Divides Us everyone in the MC knew that Doc was willing to go to bat for Bobby and the club. While the sex is scorchingly hot between Bobby and Doc, what kicked up the level of intensity was when Bobby set out to help Doc overcome her fears during sex that her husband conditioned her to so very effectively. The Fear That Divides Us is my favorite in The Devil’s Dust series to date and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the relationship develop between Doc and Bobby. I look forward to catching up with them and the rest of the gang in the next installment.
