Forsaken Sinner MC Series by Shelly Morgan ~Review Blitz

When life gives you lemons, it’s time for shots of tequila.
That’s my new saying in life, and trust me, life has handed me lots of lemons.
My name is Danielle DeChenne, and for eighteen years I took every punch “destiny” threw at me. Now I’m no longer a naive girl. Traumatic abuse will do that to you. I was forced to grow up too fast, and the one person I depended on—that gorgeous Marine, Zane—turned his back on me. So now I say screw the lemonade and just give me a bottle of Jack Daniel’s, because I don’t believe in destiny anymore.
There is no pre-destined path set out for each of us. That crap doesn’t exist.
Sometimes bad things happen…it’s just how the world works. It sucks, but you have to pick yourself up and get on with your life. Even if it’s an impossible task.
I’m done sitting around and waiting for my life to change or something good to fall in my lap. It took me awhile to understand, but once I stopped being the doormat for destiny, it was time for me to take control. Now I decide where I go in life and what will happen. It won’t always be pretty, it will sometimes hurt like hell, but I will make sure I live my life to the fullest…
Then the gorgeous Marine from my past returned with a vengeance—except this time, I was ready for him.
It’s time to rewrite destiny.

What a crazy journey! But damn it was a good one. I really enjoyed how we got the back story to how things started and where the characters came from. I love Zane and Dani! Their chemistry is great and watching their love grow was super intense. It wasn’t all cutsie and perfect. No, more like it was hell and hurt. But sometimes to really appreciate what you have you need to lose it.

The darker the book the more I like it and this one most definitely had dark and dangerous. Thus making it freakin awesome for me. Zane is a stubborn bastard. Honestly. But at the end he lost that title and became one of the good ones. The one you pull for and hope he gets everything he wants in life. Especially Dani! Dani is a little spitfire. Only not at first. She WAS the sweet girl. Now shes the badass biker princess. And she fits so much better in that role. Only she had to go through hell and back to get there. She is also a heroine you want to rally the troops for. Well not troops, but smoking hot bikers with sexy tats and all that good stuff.

This was a great read. Slightly refreshing from what Ive read MC wise before. Also, this was my first Shelly book and will most certainly not be the last.

With a dark past of abuse, Toby Smith full-on raged against life.
After years of neglect from his junkie mother, Toby turned to the one thing that made his fury go away—mixed martial arts. Now, as an adult, he lives and breathes his training club and fighting, inside or outside of the cage. But when a mousy blonde walks into his gym for a self-defense class he’s teaching, that all fades away.
Sara Carmichael was always a doormat—until the day she took her life back.
Struggling to cope with years of physical and emotional abuse from a boyfriend, things take a turn for the worse. Drunk and in rare form, he nearly violates her in unspeakable ways. So she leaves and escapes from New York to California, hoping it’s far enough away that he won’t find her.
Sparks fly in the most uncommon places.
When Sara and Toby meet, they never expected it would be in a sweaty gym. When they are together, Toby feels things he can’t understand. But when Sara’s past clouds their present, will she be strong enough to defend her new life? Or will Toby snap and become the man she’s always feared?
It’s one thing to fight for love, but it’s another when you’re…Fighting Destiny.

OMG WOW! I am so overwhelmed with this one. I was happy for the good parts and so so sad for the others. Lots of emotions that just hit a little close to home I couldn’t shake. I debated whether to finish the book or stop. BUT I had to know what happened! I couldn’t NOT know what went down and how everything played out. Sara and Toby…. Gah. HOT!!!!!!!

I am super sweet on Toby. Hes dark and mysterious and super broody. He may be all those things but when it counts hes such a sweetie. I couldn’t get enough of how he was just honest, supportive, and downright loving. ONLY to Sara though. Shes the only one that’s been given that privilege. Only she doesn’t see it that way. She thinks there has been so many women in his life and shes nothing special. She couldn’t be more wrong.

Sara…. such a wounded little soul. But shes a fighter. Shes fought for her freedom and wants to LIVE. Not just exist. Toby brings that out in her. She needs that more than air really. I can appreciate her reservations because well I was in her shoes once. But with a man like Toby making things right in the world for her again I wanted her to push herself and let him in. Only she pushed him away.

Will they get together? Or will the past overshadow the beautiful future that could be had. READ AND FIND OUT! You will not regret it.

An uncertain future is all Dani DeChenne ever expected—and she was right.
A woman usually has a sixth sense about being pregnant. But a tattoo artist who never intended on being a mother—not so much. Instead, she passes out at the gym, and her boyfriend, Zane Hendricks, is the first to find out while she is still unconscious.
To say Zane is over the moon would be an understatement. But Dani’s lonely childhood with an absent mother makes her afraid of becoming a parent herself. What if she sucks at it and her child ends up hating her?
With every fear, there’s hope for a brighter future.
Once Dani gets over the shock, her heart is set on the family she and Zane will build together. But the bliss is short-lived as her pregnancy progresses and Zane’s duties keep him away. Depression sets in, and Dani feels more alone than ever.
It isn’t until an old high school friend drifts into town that Dani has someone to talk to. Jax Reynolds is there on business, looking for a permanent job in security. When Zane catches wind of some guy hanging around his pregnant girlfriend, hospitality flies out the window. But by some miracle, the three become good friends, and Dani finally has the stability she always wanted.
Or so she thought.
When tragedy strikes, every second makes the difference between a bright future or a disastrous fate. And beyond the immediate danger threatening to ruin Dani and Zane’s lives, an even more treacherous secret might be the one thing that can destroy it all forever.

Dani and Zanes journey continues in this book with lots of intense scenes. As per the other books this one does not let ya down. There are so many highs and lows that I felt like I was on a roller coaster. But that’s okay. In the end it all worked out. The way it was supposed to.

I love Zane and Dani. Their stories are my favorite out of this series. Although there is one more book that I need to get my hands on. Zanes alpha ways are super hot and incredibly sweet. Dani is having a super hard time with being pregnant and emotional. Bless her heart I was in her shoes and I felt like a mad woman. This in particular makes me love the book more. It shows the real pregnancy issues. Not being beautiful and great all the time but the real emotional issues that come with it.

I was hooked on Dani and Zane with the first book and so glad they have had yet another. It was a great read!!!!

Twenty-six-year-old Louie Creighton knows there is something inside him he can’t control…
Ever since he can remember, Louie has had a short fuse. People always said he’d amount to nothing. He wasn’t smart enough to get into college. He wasn’t tough enough to be a Marine. No one believed in him.
No one except his father, Mike Creighton…
Louie’s father always taught him to turn the other cheek. He was a true mentor, teaching him how to be a man in a world of cowards. But when his father is murdered the day after scratching a winning lottery ticket, Louie’s inner monster can’t be contained. He becomes determined to track down the suspect at any cost. All along, he struggles to live by his father’s motto—To find out what you live for, you have to discover what you’d die for.
Then he meets Harlow McPherson…
Her entire life has been a battle. Harlow grew up in the system, bouncing from one foster home to the next. Most weren’t that bad, but some were hell.
The only comfort was the fact she wasn’t alone. Her twin brother, Hendrix, was always there—until he took his own life years later, abandoning Harlow in a cruel world. Unable to forgive, it’s Louie who reminds her there’s still hope.
When Louie unleashes his inner monster, and Harlow finally faces her demons, will they lose themselves to the darkness, or risk it all Defying Destiny?

Yet again I am amazed with another book in this series. This one is no less good than any of the others. Only I may think I like it more just because I love Louie. He had me hooked in the other books and Ive been waiting for his back story since!

Louie has a temper! Like MAJOR temper. There is only certain people he lets IN and that’s his brothers and Dani. Well more so Dani. Shes the one that got away for him. I think that made him realize that there is something MORE out there. He just didn’t think he would be lucky enough to find it. Until Harlow.

Harlow is a rough customer. She has lived a hellish life and it wasn’t pretty. AT ALL! I felt for her so much. Bouncing from home to home she never had family. Until she gets to the club. Most of all she finds Louie. Angry Louie that she cant help but want. I was kinda hoping that things for them would be easy. Unfortunately there is nothing easy for either of them.

I was so surprised with the ending! I am wanting more! I LOVE all of the characters. They really mesh well together. This is a good series to read with lots of high angst and tension. Don’t miss out on it. Especially if you like hot tattooed bikers and sassy heroines.

 I grew up in a small town in Iowa. I have 2 older sisters and amazing parents. Growing up, I was always a daddy’s girl, hanging out with him in the garage, fishing, and building stuff. I loved to play softball and swimming, but reading, telling stories, and writing were my passion, even at a young age. I took a break from writing for a while, but you could always find me with a book in my hand.
I have three children – two boys and a girl. They are my whole world. Even when I’m having the worst day ever, they brighten up my day and make me smile.
A few years ago, there was this story that would always play out in my head and no matter how many times I went through it, from beginning to end, it would never fade. So I decided to put it on paper. I didn’t plan on publishing it, but when it was almost done, a friend asked to read it. She said it was a story that needed to be shared. And that’s what started my writing career.
I love all genres of books, and even though I started with writing MC Romance, I have a whole book of ideas, so you can expect more from me than just MC, though romance is in my blood.
Even though I currently work two jobs, my ultimate dream is to become a full time author. I want to be able to spend my days filling pages with stories. I want to be the reason people find a reason to smile or laugh from lines on a page. Reading a book allows me to live in someone else’s shoes, even if only for a few minutes. It’s a way to leave my life and troubles behind and I want to be help others do that as well.
