KICK was my very first Carmen Jenner book, so I really had no idea what to expect. I have friends that loved her Sugartown series but I was told to watch out because Carmen writes dark and while it may not be as dark as some, it still had some darkness. I opened the front cover of this book and right out of the gate was a warning, telling me that this book was very dark and could ossibly contains triggers for certain things so to turn and back away if certain situations bothered me... I'm so glad I didn't turn away.

Honestly, yes, if certain situations and dark themes make you uncomfortable or you're under 18 yrs old, then no you should not read this book. It's dark, but in my opinion it's not as dark as I thought it was going to be. So READ AT YOU OWN RISK! 

Kick instantly had me intrigued, he's a character that you need to to know more about. He is full on biker and he doesn't give any shits, he does what he wants, when he wants, with no apologies to anyone. Haunted by the demons of his past Kick has decided that love is not for him, just sex and a good time is all he needs.

One night, while doing a job, Kick walks in on a gruesome scene. He has two options and he reacts in a way that nobody expects, and he saves a woman that doesn't want to be saved.

Indie is something else, she strong willed, tough, and not easily broken, but the thing is, she is already broken. She endures hell on Earth and lives to tell about it but living with these demons comes with a price.

I loved the banter between Kick and Indie, I loved watching the back and forth and the wondering what was going to happen next with them. Indie was a bit of a loose cannon so you never really knew how she was going to react to certain things. Sometimes she shocked me, and other times she didn't. I'm going to be honest, if you want a story of hearts and flowers, then this is not your book, actually there's not much love story here - it is here but it's not instant and it's not based around the love and that's okay because it fits with this particular story. Carmen did not hold back with this book and I absolutley loved it. So take a chance on Kick and Indie and let their story rock you to the core!  Oh and yes, that's all the info on the story you're getting out of me, a lot happens but I don't want to ruin your reading experience :) Happy Reading ya'll.
4 Stars!

I take a deep shuddering breath, close my eyes and stretch my hand towards him. His touch is gentle this time, far more gentle than I’d ever thought someone with so much uncontained violence to him could be.
“Spread your fingers,” he commands. I do, and he lifts the roll of tape, presses the edge to my skin and begins winding it over my knuckles. I close my eyes. The strident sound of it stretching out from the roll makes me want to flee. It makes me want to run as far from his touch—from any man’s touch—as I can possibly get.
The feel of the tape against my flesh, binding, holding, is so much worse. I tug on my hand, but he won’t let go. My heartrate skyrockets, and sweat beads erupt over my brow and upper lip. I’m in that room again, struggling, screaming, trying to fight them off, and failing.
 Biker knows it, too. His dark eyes challenge, they dare me to run, but they also implore me to stay. It’s ironic that the only thing keeping me here, keeping me grounded, is the man who abducted me.
He holds my gaze. I don’t know exactly what is hidden in his dark blue one, but it suffocates the panic within me, douses it like water flooding flames. He bends his head to my hand. Taking the paper tape in his mouth, he rips it with his teeth.
I still. I soften. His gaze doesn’t leave mine, not even once. Not even when he starts in on my wrist, gently biting through each piece of tape before pressing it down with his rough hands. I’m mesmerised by his mouth, the piercing, and the soft, full lips. The light catches a silver chain around his neck, something I’ve never noticed before—but then I try not to make a habit of staring too closely at him. Not now, though. Now I watch every twitch, every blink, every intake of breath, and every inch that is swallowed up by his mouth moving closer to my flesh.

When I was ten, my father indoctrinated me into the family.
A brotherhood who would fight, protect, and give their lives for one another. A club whose ties ran thicker than blood, murkier than the dirt and grime that tainted my soul. Stronger than the bonds that connected me to my own family.
A band of brothers, where loyalty was kept and paid in a currency of blood.
When I was twenty-seven, I betrayed that brotherhood.
I’ve spent every day since running, avoiding paying back that debt.
My name is Daniel Johnson.  I have betrayed everyone I ever loved.
And I’ll betray her too.
This is my story—if you’re screwed up enough to want to read it.
