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? 

Relent is the first book in the Sydney Storm MC series. This is a spin off series to the Storm MC series. Readers do not have to read the Storm MC series to read this one.








My Rating:


Favorite Quotes:


“Some people don’t know how to do better, Kick.  For some, their best is our worst, and it’s not always their fault,”

“Life might be hard, but you and I can do everything possible to make us easy.”

“I want you more than anything else in this world baby,”

“I loved my man, but I really loved how he let me think I had some control when we both knew neither of us had any control.”

“I want you to love me, and hate me, and fight with me, and make up with me, and do it over and over.  I want you forever.”

“You made me work for it, but I knew you still loved me, and that I’d eventually get you to relent.”


My Review:



I was a late comer to the MC genre, but I am now a certifiable Nina Levine fan girl.  I read and fell in love with her Storm MC series, and am now an ardent follower of her inked cult.  The Sydney branch of Storm is considerably edgier, and are while they are more wild, hot tempered, violent, and bad-boy, they still have tenderness in their hearts for their families, pet projects (an abuse shelter), and will of course love their women hard.  As with all the previous Storm books, Relent is fell of hot sexy alpha males, complicated loved lives, troubled childhoods, family drama, epic love, and off the charts sensuality.  Ms. Levine definitely has skills, I know when reading her books, I can skip the gym yet still manage to get a gasping and heart pounding cardio workout.
