[I received a free advance review copy in exchange for an honest review]
I was so excited to dive into this book. There were some pretty hilarious scenes. That scene in the car? When Tank and Nicole were taunting and teasing each other was like, the cutest thing ever. I’d say the book started off at the light side and then started becoming a little intense.
I loved the bad boy attitude with Tank. He’s a biker, could he be more badass than that?
What I didn’t find satisfying enough is the characters’ backgrounds. We didn’t get to actually meet Austin, for example. And I think there are things that were left unsettled at the end. We didn’t get closure with Tank’s sister, and I’m a closure-obsessed person here. I loved the club, but it felt like when Nicole was there, especially at the end, the atmosphere was a little forced and awkward.
I honestly didn’t find something extra special in Nicole and Tank’s relationship.
It was all physical at first, and that was okay; it was great. Then it was your typical, wait, did I see something shift in his eyes? or, ah the feels are hitting me, am I falling for him? BUT I WANTED MOREEEE. And it wasn’t satisfying enough. There was something missing, and I couldn’t put my finger on it. He treated her well…
Woah that’s it. Like, seriously, I don’t think there was anything beyond that. When Nicole’s mother would ask her “Does he treat you right?” like it’s the most important thing, like it’s the only thing that matters. And I know why she’d think it’s important, I do. But there are many other factors. I honestly didn’t see, like, actual chemistry. Beyond the physical attraction and all that.
I don’t know. I really wanted this book to become my next favorite. I’m certainly not giving up on bad-boy-bikers books just yet, though.
Every loner needs a family—and a heart to call home. The bad-boy bikers of the True Brothers MC make good as a strong, silent type shows the right woman that he can speak the language of love.
With her lowlife father in prison for manslaughter, Nicole Walker keeps her distance from the biker scene—until she meets the stud running security at her best friend’s wedding. “Tank” is big, mean, and trouble from every direction. Yet Nicole can’t take her eyes off his chiseled body, or deny the pure electricity she feels when he returns her gaze. Guys like Tank are supposed to be a one-way ride to heartbreak. So why, after a scorching night in his bed, does Nicole only want more?
From his tour in the Marines to his sister’s disastrous marriage, Tank has seen the worst that life has to offer. Ever since his father’s death, Tank’s been fiercely protective of his family—and the True Brothers have always had his back. But nothing could prepare him for a woman like Nicole, who’s determined to break down the walls around his heart. When violence strikes, placing Nicole in harm’s way, Tank digs deep to find the courage to keep her safe—and the strength to love without limits.
