Book Review: Slay by Nina Levine

Amazon/Goodreads
Price: $3.99
Pages: 307

Blurb:

The ghosts of Donovan "Blade" Brookes' life are closing in on him.

Hardened by an abusive childhood and haunted by the murder of his fiancé, Blade struggles against the dark forces threatening to consume him. When he helps Layla Reed in her hour of need, he has no idea she will be the light to his darkness. As they spend more time together, he is powerless to fight his desire for her.

Powerless to fight his need for her.

However, as his feelings deepen, he pushes her away, reluctant to drag her into his world. With enemies coming at him from all directions, Storm MC needing his help to fight off a rival, and his father still causing him grief, Blade needs the love of a good woman now more than ever. Can Layla push Blade to the edge and get him to admit to both of them what he wants? Or will the darkness pull him under once and for all?

Review: 

The more I dive into Nina's MC world, the more I have noticed we have a running theme. Each character and couple have their own demons. They are all put through difficult trials and have to learn how to make it through the hell we call life.


So far each book we have read was about an MC member, but this time, it is different. We are reading Blade's story, even though he is connected to the family/MC. Blade is not a member of Storm, instead, he has his own thing going on. It is a bit refreshing but it is also a book that could have been written as a stand alone.


I loved Blade's and Layla's relationship, they represent the true meaning of unconditional love. A love that only a few know or understand, it is something not many people are lucky to experience. Especially this day in age. Everyone is to focus on themselves and what you can do for them, to love someone with all of their heart.  You can even have parents that don't understand this feeling, mainly with their partner or their children, or animals. Which is truly sad, maybe we all need to take a page out of Nina Levine's book and learn what unconditional love truly means.
