Nina Levine is a favorite author of mine, she won me over with the first MC Romance of hers that I read. Every new release is like Christmas for me, no matter what month it is. Turning each page is like unwrapping a present. I'm always surprised and thrilled with what's inside.
Hyde was given his road name because of his tendencies towards Jekyll/Hyde behavior. That's not always a bad thing, his club has come to depend on his skills, and sometimes all it takes is a nod from his president to let his 'Hyde' loose to take care of some club business. But he wasn't always that way. As I was taken on a journey into his past, it became clear that it was a learned behavior that eventually became part of him. My heart hurt for him and I was outraged at the players involved in the process. As his life unraveled, he kept it to himself. Suffering alone. He watched. He waited. He regretted. He wished for a do-over that would never happen. And then...his past came to light, forcing him to face his regrets and answer for his actions. Is there a chance that he will find absolution?
Get ready for another exciting ride as Sydney Storm MC deals with an ongoing war that threatens their club and their loved ones. The suspense is intense and the passion even more so. I couldn't read fast enough, or slow enough. I know, I'm greedy. I want more, and at the same time I don't want it to end. And I'm thrilled to say, it's not over. The author left me with a tease that will have me panting for more until I have another gift to unwrap. The line forms here...
