Revive Review


written by: Nina Levine

Published: July 21, 2014

Goodreads Synopsis:

He doesn’t do relationships. Neither does she. But they can’t fight the attraction any longer…

Nash Walker hides the demons that consume his soul. He buries them deep and distracts himself with sex. Anything to avoid facing a past full of heartbreak and regret; anything to numb the pain that he struggles with daily.

Velvet Carr has spent years fighting her demons. It’s a fight she’s winning. That is, until Nash crashes his way into her life and into her heart.

It started out as a bit of harmless fun between friends; it wasn’t meant to get complicated for either of them. But when two broken souls come together and arouse unwanted feelings in each other, complicated is what happens.

Can Nash and Velvet help heal each other and revive the love in their lives that they’ve both been refusing to allow in for years? Or will they let their demons ruin any chance they may have at happiness?

My Thoughts:

          Revive is the third book in the Storm MC series by Nina Levine. Nash is none in the club for being very talented with the ladies, but he's always had a hard on for Velvet. Velvet is the headlining stripper at Storm's club Indigo, she doesn't put up with anyone's crap but she's always found Nash very tempting, however refuses to ruin their friendship. Velvet gives into urges to experience Nash and finally seals the deal. Will this night be the end to a beautiful friendship or will it be the beginning of a true strong relationship?

         I loved Nash's Back story because it made you connect and understand him so much better. Velvet is so tough and strong however you get to see her soft side to and that's nice. Nash and Velvet were both so broken and need their friendship to keep each other together.When Nash and Velvet finally open up, it's so great to see the dynamics change. I loved how equal the story part and sex part of the book was. I enjoyed this book and hope to see more of Nash and Velvet in the future books.

Blaze Review

written by: Nina Levine
Published: April 30, 2014

Goodread Synopsis:




Forever is a long time and takes a lot of hard work.

For twelve years, Madison and J's love story has been wild and uncontrollable. Their road to love has been full of breathtaking highs and devastating lows. Finally, they’ve found each other again and have both sworn that this time it will be forever.

Theirs is an everlasting love.

Or, is it?

Can forever be an impossible dream when two people are as headstrong as these two? Or will the deep love they have for each other win out and give them the forever they've fought hard for?

My Thoughts:

         Blaze is a Storm MC novella by Nina Levine. Blaze should be read between the second (Fierce) and third (Revive) book. Madison is ecstatic that J is back, it's been two long lonely months. J is happy to be home and back with Madison but he feels guilt over what he had to do for the club while he was gone and feels like he can't tell Madison. Madison can feel the distance and starts to question things and finally builds up the courage to get J to talk. Will Madison and J be able to work through this together and find forever or will it be the end?

         I loved more story on J and Madison because I felt like their relationship has endured through the most so far. I loved how they love each other so much and finally get everything going just right. I absolutely loved the ending, I was hoping for it through the whole first book (No Spoilers, read it, promise it's worth it!) I look forward to seeing more of J and Madison in the future Storm novels.

Fierce Review

Written by: Nina Levine
Published: February 28, 2014

Goodreads Synopsis:

She’s everything he’s never wanted. He’s everything she’s never known.

Scott Cole is a force to be reckoned with. As Vice President of the Storm Motorcycle Club he carries out his duties with a ruthless determination. He moves through life with a clear agenda - protect his club and his family at all costs.

He is intense.

He is loyal.

He is fierce.

He doesn’t give his love easily, but when he does, he loves fiercely. Settling down, however, has never been part of his plan. 

Harlow James is a country girl who has never met a biker in her life. She is also done with men. In her experience all they ever do is lie, cheat or steal. When she meets Scott Cole she knows he is heartbreak on legs. 

He is confident.

He is sexy.

He is bossy.

She knows she must fight her growing attraction to this complex man in order to guard her heart. When his world crashes into hers and danger comes calling, Scott’s fierce desire to protect kicks in and Harlow realises that she might just have found a man worth taking a risk on.

My Thoughts:

Fierce is the Second book in the Storm MC series by Nina Levine. Fierce is Scott's Story, Scott isnt the settling Down type, he's the VP of Storm and He doesn't have time for relationships. Scott helps his neighbor's daughter Lisa out with her sick cat by taking it to the vet where he meets Harlow. Scott & Hrlow don't start off very well and are both unimpressed by each other. Harlow is friend's with Scott's Sister and starts coming around, proving to be difficult for both her and Scott. Harlow becomes available on the job market and asks Scott for a job at Storm's club Indigo, Scott gives her the job. Will their working relationship change their mind about each other? Will Harlow be the woman to make Scott settle down?

I love the dynamics between Scott & Harlow. I love seeing Scott's softer side, with Lisa and Harlow. This book had a little more story and little less sex (still plenty of sex) than the first, it was just the right amount of the two elements for me. I like that Harlow is son nice but she doesn't put up with Scott's shit. I was glad to see Scott and Blade kind of work together and kind of get over some of their shit. I hope to see things turn around for Lisa. I hope that Scott & Harlow become even stronger together and I get to see them again in the other books.

Storm Review

written by: Nina Levine
published:November 21, 2013

Goodreads Synopsis:

Book #1 in the Storm MC Series.

Life can be a bitch but love can get you through any storm.

Madison Cole’s family is the Storm Motorcycle Club. Her father is the President and her brother is the VP. She grew up surrounded by bikers, crime and violence. Two years ago she walked away from her family and the world they live in. Her soul was shattered, her heart was broken and she had an addiction she couldn't shake. She picked up the pieces and put herself back together. Now her family wants her back. The club is being threatened and they send a club member to return her home to safety; the one person that could destroy everything she has worked so hard to build.

Jason Reilly has sacrificed a lot for the motorcycle club he calls family. Two years ago he made the biggest sacrifice of all; he gave up the woman he loved for them. Now he is being sent to bring her back and he is conflicted. He thought he was over her but discovers their connection is as strong as ever. Their love was all-consuming, passionate and fiery. It was also their undoing and he doesn't know if either of them is strong enough to battle the demons that ripped them apart, to find love again.

Madison and Jason are brought back together by a force out of their control; one that pushes them to a breaking point. Can they overcome their past and discover a love worth fighting for or will the harsh reality of their world finally and completely break them both?

My Thoughts:

Storm is the first book in the storm Mc series by Nina Levine. Madison has grown up in the club life, but J has been on her mind as long as she's known him and when they get together, there's nothing but sparks. Then one fateful night an event occurs that Madison can't get past and she sinks into bad habits and bad men. She finally gets away and gets herself together and the past cones calling. J shows back up in Madison's life and she's just as hot for him as ever. Will J and Madison be able to put the past behind them or will it pull Madison back into the darkness?

Storm had strong characters in it and was a good read. There were lots of juice sex scenes, personally a few too many for me but I kind of expected that with a motorcycle club series. It's not that I don't like juicy sex scenes I just would've liked a little more story outside of the sex between J and Madison. I really loved Madison, she was strong and stubborn but she had flaws that made me connect with her even more. I love J, he was strong and cocky and hot, exactly what ever girls fantasy man probably looks like. The storyline was good however I would have loved to delve a little more into the club business. I did enjoy this book and look forward to reading more in the series.
