Overview

Evie Bishop grew up loving Kick Hanson. He loved her, too. They were inseparable. Best friends who looked out for each other. Until the day scandal hit their families and ripped everything apart, changing the course of all their lives.

Kick follows a dangerous path that leads him to the Storm MC where he spends his days buried deep in a violent and lawless world that is slowly consuming his soul. Evie works hard to escape the hopelessness that threatens to swallow her after her family is ripped apart. She builds a stable life for herself, however it's devoid of the one thing she has always longed for - Kick.

The love these two have for each other never wavers but sometimes in life, love isn't enough. Even in the times they find each other again, they can never make it work. Kick fights against bringing Evie into his world and Evie refuses a life with Kick if he won't fully commit to her. However, when circumstance throws them together again, Kick knows he must finally make her his. The trouble is, Evie's done. She loves him but she believes their chance to be together has long passed.

When Kick finally stakes his claim, will Evie relent and give their love another go, or has Kick left it too long to go after the woman who has owned his heart forever?

I'm an MC book whore. I'm also a Nina Levine addict, if she writes it I will read it and I'm sure I'll love it. That being said while I did enjoy Relent it took longer than I thought to get me sucked in. The first half of the story drug to me, it seemed to take too long to get going. I love Kick, I mean how could I not? And Evie, I understood her unwillingness to jump back into something with Kick after he destroyed her the last time. I also understood her jumping back into bed with him with minimal resistance, they have known each other forever and she still loves him so regardless of how long it took her to cave, it was inevitable. Kick's unwillingness to bring Evie into his lifestyle ruined everything for them. He doesn't realize just how strong she is and what she can handle, he could have come clean and saved them so much trouble!! I loved seeing him try to make it up to her, trying to convince her that he loves her and they should be together forever. Kick & Evie are a great couple and I think this is the beginning of yet another amazing series for Levine, I just think it was one a bit slow starting out and two I think there were some things left unanswered, problems that just seemed to disappear when we should have seen a resolution or a hint that payback was coming. I also didn't connect as much with the MC as in her previous books. And King, really I'm not sure how I feel about him. If he's as nuts as he appears then there are going to be issues between club members as well as other clubs. Also the VP not having the presidents back shouldn't have been left unresolved. Judging off book one of the series, it appears the club is headed in a direction that's going to cause problems for everyone involved. I'd like to have seen more about the club an a bit less of the Kick/Evie flashbacks, I feel the story spent too much time on their past and not enough on the club but hope that book two will bring it all together for me.

A gifted copy was given in exchange for an honest review. (Indulgence Anthology) I love this story but at the same time I hate it. I know, I know, that doesn’t make any sense at all. I’ll try to explain myself. I love it because the love that Evie and Kick feel for each other has always been there no matter what. It has survived through the years, through different situations and every day is stronger. I hate it because I don’t like this MC world where swearing, beating and killing is the normal thing every day. They don’t follow the rules or laws but they imposed their own ones. In spite of all this, I like how they protect their members as they are like a family. I like when the stories are told by both characters as it allows us to get into their feelings and thoughts.

Overall Rating:  4.25 Rockin Stars Do you believe in forever love?  Is it possible to love and hate someone at the same time? In book one of Nina Levine’s new series, Sydney Storm, I find myself asking that question.  It unveils the story of two people that have loved each other for most of their lives and yet find themselves apart. They are like two halves of a whole and each has lost their other half.   This is Evie and Kick’s story, a story that is often dangerous, filled with hopelessness and sorrow.  There is so much sorrow in the world, especially when you lose a friend that has been more than a friend most of your life.  The death of Jeremy filled Evie’s soul with such sorrow but it also brought Kick back. Nothing had been the same after he walked away and I had finally accepted that it was not meant to be, that there would be no happily ever after! But now, Kick is back and he wants to try again.  Is that possible?  Or is it too late for us? As I read this book, I felt sadden by the events and friendships that had been destroyed by wrong choices.  Kick listening to his friend Jeremy and condemning Kick’s choice in becoming part the MC world had devastating results. Words that are spoken in anger are often more destructive than words spoken in love. Even though this is a spin off from Ms. Levine’s Storm MC series, this book stands on its own merit.   Hero: Kick Hanson 4.25 stars Heroine: Evie Bishop 4.25 stars Steam: 4.25 stars  Plot: 4.25 stars  Cliffhanger: No Would I recommend this book: Yes! Check it out! Hot alpha male…check; sexy, stubborn woman…check; sizzling hot sex…check and a dilemma that needs to be resolved…check; this book has it all and more! Not to mention heat break, rejection and lots of needy denial. Would I recommend this author: Yes! Ms. Levine weaves extraordinary stories and produces even more incredible characters.  Her books are well written and ensnare her readers in the worlds that she creates. ***Received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review***

5 star The story has laughs, pain, secrets, and heartbreak. I was pulled right into this story. This is Evie and Kick’s story. Evie and Kick tried to be together but secrets kept them apart. Now Kick wants hers her no matter what and will try and share what he can from the club. What happens when his helping out her father brings down heat on the club. Will he be able to have the club and Evie also? Or will he have to give up one of them? I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next one in this series.

This is a whole new MC series where we are introduced to Evie and Kick. Evie met kick when they were little. They started off as best friends in high school and progressed into a full scale relationship!! It didn't happen over night and they broke up for a while because of Kick's reluctance to let Evie know everything about the MC. I tell you this, Nina can write some seriously hot sex scenes and this book does not disappoint!! If you love hot romances with HEA's,  this is one book to one click now!! Can't wait for the 2nd book inn is series to come out.

KICK This book was glued to my hands I could not put it down. Kick and Evie grew up together and have always looked out for each other. They even tried to make their relationship work until a friend got it in Kick's head to not involve her in his MC lifestyle. Unfortunately some things are better together than apart and these two are so much better TOGETHER. This story is gritty, it’s dramatic, it’s sexy, and so very intoxicating. Nina creates this vibrant world full of foul mouth bikers, sassy chicks, and complex characters that translates to a book full of DELICIOUSNESS. RELENT is not just a story about a second chance at love, but also about a second chance to get it right. Both have experienced great turmoil within their lives and with their family. The spark that ignites whenever Kick and Evie is together is undeniable it's hot, it's dirty, it's sexy, and I can't get enough of it! What this book has shown me is that sometimes we all have flaws and need to look inside ourselves so that walls start to crumble, and hearts start to mend. This series definitely started off with a BANG and I'm looking forward to whats in store for these raw, intense, alpha males of SYDNEY STORM MC!!!!

True love, regardless of circumstances, always finds its way back “home”.  I read this book with the promise  of an honest review to the author and I am so glad I did.  I fell in love with Kick and Evie.  The rollercoaster of emotions you feel made me devour it as fast as humanly possible!  Evie and Kick have been in love with each other since high school, upon joining his MC club he thought it best to break things off with Evie so not to draw her into that life.  When their mutual friend dies they are brought back together and there was no question they both still loved each other and no one else would do.   The character development was fantastic.  I loved Evie as she was sassy, mouthy and full of wit.  I always appreciate when the heroine has a backbone and knows exactly who she is.  Kick, oh my kick, the PERFEC T alpha male and has broken into my BBF top 10.  Loyal to his club and also to Evie he is ferociously protective of the two most important things in his life.  The chemistry the two of them had was was off the charts HOT.   The past they had together was long and complicated and both of their families were involved and played  a large part of the drama which they had to work out before they could move forward with this new “forever” chapter of their lives.    Nine Levine has hit this one out of the ballpark.  The emotional investment the reader  is drawn into sets it apart from many MC books out there.  You laugh, you want to cry, you get very  frustrated and at different times want to choke the living daylights out of not only Kick and Evie…but also  their families.  I can not wait to see what the future holds for this series.

**True Love and New Beginnings** Love Nina's books! I am always wowed and amazed with her writing and the characters she introduces us too! In Relent we get to know Kick and he is one sexy alpha male! There has only been one women who he protected above all else and has loved since he was young, Evie! When he joined Storm MC his life changed and so did his relationship with Evie! Will a death of someone close to them both bring them back together or create a whole new set of problems? The chemistry between these two is off the charts! Take this journey and find out if Kick and Evie can overcome their past. Will they find the lasting love and commitment they both deserve? Or, will danger that is lurking destroy their future?

5 Stars From Sammy's Book Obsession MY THOUGHTS~  I was provided with a Review Copy/ARC for review. The Sydney chapter of Storm is every bit as alluring as the first Storm series! I fell for Kick & Evie right off the bat! I just LOVE them together! The perfect mix of alpha male with a soft side and strong female with a quick mouth and love for her man. LOVED it!  If you've read anything else by author Nina Levine before, you already know to expect that the writing will be top-notch. She didn't disappoint with Relent either! The story flows well even with the flashbacks throughout. That's tough for some authors to do, but not this one.  The characters are just...wow. They all have their own stories to tell, even those other than the main characters. I can't wait to hear the others. They are all so well developed and great! Can't wait for more!

What an AMAZING start to a new series by Nina! "Sydney Storm MC" here I come! If you haven't read the "Storm MC" series yet please do.... just because you can & need to read what this women writes. Nina surely draws her readers into her stories & 'Relent' is no different. I felt myself drift away from the real world & totally stuck into Kick & Evie's story. It was powerful, action packed, sexy, erotic & don't forget the inked men of Storm (the Sydney Chapter atleast). I love the interaction between Kick & Evie, once they figure out that they can't live without the other, Kick's possesive Alpha ways & Evie's absolute sassiness, they compliment one another in so many ways. WOW Nina Levine, I really don't know how you pull such an amazing piece together (I couldn't do it)... I LOVED this book & can't wait to read what comes next for the "Sydney Storm MC" series. My eyes are ALWAYS peeled!

Received an ARC copy from author for a honest review. As with Nina's other books, this story captivated my attention from the start and tugged at my heart strings. MC storyline that was action packed, suspenseful, emotional and a passionate love story. Kick is a sexy badass biker who was Evie's childhood friend, protector and first love. After three years apart, Kick fights an internal battle and realizes he doesn't want to live without Evie. He's relentless in his pursuit in getting her back. They are soul mates and have that endless love most people would die to have. Loved their characters and flaming chemistry. After reading this book, the Bonjovi song "I'll be there for you" kept coming to mind making me think of how much the majority of the lyrics described Kick and Evie love story. Can't wait for more in this series. Would recommend as a must read!! This was a freaking awesome book!!!!
