Newest Kick Teaser.jpg

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.

Warning: KICK contains graphic violence, profanity, drug use, and explicit sexual situations of a taboo nature. Intended for an 18+ audience only. Not intended for pussies.

Selene's Review

3/3.5 Smooches

I'm kind of on the fence with this one.  I REALLY enjoyed Carmen's Welcome to Sugartown so I was super excited to read this.  And while there were things I did enjoy about it, it just didn't sit right with me.   I mean it wasn't bad or anything, Kick just didn't rock my world.

What I liked:  

  • While I didn't always get the "why" behind Kick's love / lust / obsession with his women, I did like that he had some sense of compassion deep inside him towards them. 
  • The story was fast-paced and all over the place.  Never a dull moment, that's for sure.
  • I liked that Indie saw through her fears and his scariness through to him.  Just Kick.  And fell for him.
What I didn't like:
  • The two women in Kick's life ... I didn't really get why he was so drawn / attached to them.  If I could justify his feelings for them, his actions might have made more sense. 
  • Kick was gross.  His room was gross.  He wore dirty clothes and slept on a dirty bed.  When there was no reason to.  yuck.
  • He talked a good talk but his bark was so much worse than his bite.  When I read dark, I want the bite.
  • And the tooth thing ... uhhhh, no.  Just no.
I love Abbi Glines.  I do not love Abbi Glines when she writes paranormal.
I love Carmen Jenner.  I don't think I love Carmen Jenner when she writes dark.

Perhaps it's just me because the other early reviews seem to love it.  Give it a go and let me know what you think!
