The Long Road to Us by MN Forgy

-- Two Broken Souls --
Piper was a hot mess and it was the only way she could cope and survive. She was traumatized as a little girl and once she was able to, she escaped into oblivion. Her constant partying and drinking were a major concern for those who cared about her, but she couldn't stop. Stopping meant thinking and thinking meant dealing and she really didn't want to do that.

Saint had his own demons and while he was being haunted by the ghosts of his past, he dealt with the present. No commitments beyond what he gave to Devils Dust. His pain wasn't something he shared or had overcome and yet he was strangely drawn to the broken girl who would give him more problems he couldn't solve.

A story about two damaged souls is always the makings of an interesting, entertaining, and angsty tale. The Long Road to Us was no exception. Ending with one heck of a cliffhanger, I'm a bit desperate to find out what the heck the author will make happen to these people next. Death is constantly sitting around, waiting for its next victim and after killing the one character who led me down this road, I'm not even sure how to feel at this point. With a heavy heart, I'm looking forward to the conclusion, The Prospect Who Saved Us.


So what didn't I like? Minor spoilers ahead so if you want to avoid any and all spoilers, stop reading now.

There was a lot of things I didn't like. It bothered me that I kept noticing discrepancies, spelling errors, plot holes, etc. I'm so aggravated by it all.

Lip got me this car when I was sixteen. A used 2017 black Acura.
Really? Then how old are you? Because with the many mentions of how she was an adult and the amount of drinking and drugs and partying that she was into, my assumption was that Piper actually was an adult. She has her own house (that she shares) and not too many teenagers would have that going for them. Sooooo.... how old is this chick supposed to be then?

Hell, I’ve been known to have a heavy right hand. It might be time to show these boys women are just as tough as they are if it means I get to keep my room.
Why oh why oh why??? When you lay down your 'heavy right hand', Piper, how well will you receive that man's heavy right hand back? Stop this nonsense. The last book had a female thinking these types of delusional thoughts as well. You cannot take down a badass biker dude. You. Can. Not! Let's be real.

Do I have daddy issues to the point that finding misery in male strangers stratifies me?
Do I really need to point out the things that are wrong with this statement? First of all, 'stratifies me'? What the heck is that supposed to mean? I know it's supposed to be 'satisfies', but I thought it was hilarious to use this sentence to illustrate an example of how terrible the editing of this book was. This book is sold on Amazon. Meaning it's out there for consumption. Like this?
And yeah, you's a ho so obviously your question, Ms. Piper, must be rhetorical.

The formatting was off. The editing was minimal at best. Honestly, I'm thinking of offering my services to people because there's no way I'd allow you to publish a book with so many errors.

-- About the Book --
The Long Road to US by MN Forgy
Saint’s no angel. He’s grown up in the south side of LA and now runs it with the help of the Devil’s Dust MC. With a loaded smirk and a dangerous trigger finger, any woman would be so lucky to be by his side.

However, his past leaves a thick layer of soot of lost dreams and he’d rather live the life of an outlaw than bother with the semantics of questioning them.

That is until Piper.

Piper’s nightmares dance amongst her footsteps like a bad omen. Her need to be in control and have any man dance at her fingertips gives her the reputation as a tease, but she can’t help herself. The memory of calloused palms bruising her skin fuel her to feel needed and loved by strangers.

Until fate catches up with her and everything is a darkened memory, and the long road to finding out who she was and is, lays in the hands of an outlaw who is anything but a Saint.
