Synopsis

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?

Juliana’s Review

I really must applaud Ms. Levine for her debut release. Storm was funny and sexy with some action thrown in.

The story follows the life’s of Madison and Jason. Both call the Storm MC their family. Madison is daughter of club president, Marcus. After a tragic event, Madison begins to see everything differently including the people she calls “family”. Unable to deal she decides to find solace in the bottom of a bottle. When that doesn’t work, she picks up her stuff and leaves; leaving everything she has ever known behind. Jason is a Storm MC member and madly in love with Madison but when this event changes everything between them he decides that maybe the only way to save her from herself….is to let her go. Luckily two years later, Madison has managed to build herself a decent life. She has beat her alcoholism and found a slice of happy. When she gets a call from her brother, Scott and Storm MC VP, everything and everyone she ran away from comes right to her doorstep. There are problems with the club and she needs to come home. After two years apart and the issues still between them, can J and Madison find a way to make it work and give love a second chance? Haha….I love my stupid questions I give you…you got to read and find out.

The few issues I had with the book were mostly in Madison as a character. She had a tendency to be annoying and bitch for the wrong reasons. I kind wanted to just slap her at points and tell her,”You grew up in an MC. MAN THE EFF UP ALREADY!!!”. Jason was hot and really had a sweet side. He truly loves Madison even if she is pain an ass most of the time. I really wanted just a bit more of their backstory but it did not take away from the book.  I can’t wait to see where this series goes and I am excited to read about the rest of the supporting characters. I really enjoyed them.

Excerpt

I grabbed my purse and headed outside to go and buy lunch.  J was on the phone, but saw me come outside and signalled for me to wait.

“I’m going to buy lunch, J.  And I only get an hour so I don’t have time to wait for you,” I said, tersely.  He kept talking and scowled at me.  I turned and started to walk away from him, towards the cafe where I always bought lunch.

I could hear him muttering something into the phone and then he must have ended his call because he went silent.  Then, he barked, “Madison!”

The last thing I wanted to do was stop for him, but there was something in his tone; a ‘don’t fuck with me’ command.  So I stopped, and turned around to look at him.  Oh, my.  He was shitty.

He stalked to where I was and got in my face.  “Why the fuck do you have to be so difficult about this?” He was fuming.

Well, I could see him, and raise him in his anger.  “Maybe it has something to do with the way Scott has gone about this.  And the fact that he sent you!”

He flinched.  It was only for a second, and most people wouldn’t have even noticed it.  But I knew J, and I saw it.  It surprised the fuck out of me.  “Well then, it looks like we’ve got some shit to sort out, babe, because I’m not going anywhere.”

“I don’t want to sort shit out with you.  That ship sailed two fucking years ago, J,” I spat.

He gripped my arm, pulling me closer, “No, it fucking didn’t,” he growled, eyes blazing, “And you can’t deny there’s still something here.  I feel it and I know you feel it too.”

I laughed.  No, actually, I cackled.  “You wanna fuck, J?  I can feel that, and, yeah, if you wanna go there, I’m all for it.  But don’t mistake my desire for your cock for anything else.”
