Review of Storm by Nina Levine

The bit on the back…

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?

This came up on Facebook on a sponsored post. At the time I was I the middle of the final season of Sons of Anarchy so this was right up my street and let me fill the gap that the end of Sons brought. It was free at the time of purchase.

The story is all about Madison, the daughter of Storm MC’s president. Brought back to the club after a couple of years of freedom Madison is reluctant especially when she finds out its her ex Jason who is sent to fetch her.

Madison puts up quite a fight in the beginning but folds like a deck of cards and in a move I wasn’t expecting basically quite her new life to take up her old one again. Jason and Madison have an obvious chemistry and also have obvious unresolved romantic issues. I was kind of rooting for them at the start of the book because I knew that chemistry would be explosive if they got back together. 
At times though it seems as though Jason treated Madison as a little kid in the way he acted. Some of that I think stemmed from the whole MC club ethos but other parts of it seemed like misunderstanding of the person Madison had turned into.

The story itself is fast paced, a bit like an episode of Sons, where all of the proverbial seems to hit the fan all at once. If it’s not one thing it’s another and although Jason is always trying to protect Madison she doesn’t see things his way making for some interesting arguments between them.

About half way through I had already decided I was going to buy more from the series so I’d bought a compendium of books 1-4. The next book is about Madison’s brother and Storm MC’s VP Scott and I’m already looking forward to it.
