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?

I am a huge NL fan. I've loved all of her books but for some reason I could not connect and get into this one. It just seemed like every other biker book out there, it didn't stand out in any way. It didn't set itself apart in any way. Kick, to me, was a normal biker. Foul mouthed, alpha like, club first, but I love my woman type of man.
I can say I did like they had a history. But I wanted more of the angst and build up. I wanted to know more about his toys. It's eluded to a lot, so give me more. Not just handcuffs. More. I wanted Evie to show she had balls. She shows them with Kick, I wanted her to show them some other way. I just felt like this was such a normal biker book to me. With NL I expect spectacular and this just fell short for me.
