I should probably preface this review by saying that I do not read much of anything set within the tumultuous world of biker clubs. I love fantasy, but something about that world just doesn’t really appeal to me. Never the less I wanted to try out this book because it looked interesting and because it fit my criteria; it was a free to download book for the Kindle. I want to do at least one free book review a month this year. And I have a rather ambitious goal of reading 200 books this year.
Storm was not exactly what I was expecting. I honestly thought it would be more realistic and perhaps it is more realistic than I realize. Madison is the daughter of the president of the MC Storm. She is 29 years old, a recovering alcoholic, and not particularly picky about who she sleeps with. Madison moved away from her family two years prior and in that time has managed to pull herself all the way together and kick her drinking habit, surround herself with a steady circle of friends, and distance herself from club problems. All of this comes to a rather screeching halt when her old best friend is murdered by her old boyfriend who just happens to be the crazy leader of a rival MC.
From there we get embroiled in the MC once again. There are many high and low points to this book and the writing itself is actually fairly good. If you are looking for a free download that has some interesting potential as a quick read than this is a fairly good book for you. The story also concludes (for the most part) in one book. Though there are several more in her series and one more about the main characters Madison and J. J or Jason is actually a rather interesting character and one that I would have liked to explore a little more. He isn’t my kind of hero, but if you like Sons of Anarchy then this is definitely the book for you.
Overall, while I have no plans to read more from Nina Levine, this was a rather good sort of introductory book for those wanting to dabble in the world of motorcycle club fantasy. It is currently free to download on Amazon here.
If you read it I would love to know what you thought!
