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?

Nina Levine has outdone herself with the first installment of the Sydney Storm MC#1 series. I am a lover of biker romances, but Kick and Evie’s story is different from any I have read.
Kick is a bad-ass, hard-core biker enforcer. He has a no-questions-asked loyalty to Storm, which has lead to over a decade of less than legal acts. He feels that this involvement (which he will not give up ) made him unworthy of Evie, so he walked away. Now, even though he still battles with feeling unworthy, he isn’t willing to live without her.
Evie is scarred from what she saw as Kick walking away from her, twice, and isn’t ready to open herself up to him. As they grow close to each other again, she shows him just how loving and accepting she is, and you cannot help but fall in love with her.
My favorite thing about this book is Kick. Murdering, violent, take-no-prisoners biker Kick. Why? Because he is one of the most openly vulnerable hero’s I have encountered in a long time. I was gutted by his confessions, both external and internal. The need/love/desire he has for Evie is amazing and long-standing. The ferocity of protection he bestows on Evie is inspired.
I gotta say, as much as I love my biker romances, I was truly surprised by this. Seriously surprised. The believability Nina created in Kick’s character is a true testament to her talent as a writer.
I was given an ARC of Relent in exchange for an honest opinion.
