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 p*ssies.

Holy Wow!!

I have been excited to read Kick, by Carmen Jenner, since the moment the cover appeared in my social media news feed. I have heard great things about her Sugartown series, but I never really had the chance to read it. I have no clue why I waited so long to read one of her books... Her writing style is captivating and the way she wrote Kick's story kept me on the edge of my seat until the early hours of the morning!

This book comes with a warning.... You better take it seriously! I have read a few dark romance novels, but I have to admit that this one is pretty dark. There is some romance included in this story, but what made the book such a fantastic and heart-pumping read for me was how Kick's journey was written. I was anxious to find out what is story was. Oh my God! Does he ever have a story! My heart could not take it anymore! My poor kindle almost did not survive this book. 

I usually like to do a little recap of the book in my review, but for Kick I won't. Anybody that starts reading Kick's journey needs to FEEL every.single.thing. written in the pages of this book. Kick is one hell of a roller coaster ride you never expected to embark on! It's extremely dark, brutal and will leave your heart beating furiously.

If you are looking for a soft hearts and flowers kind of story... This is not it! I highly suggest this book if you are ready to step out of your comfort zone. This book will test all your reading limits. It's all kinds of messed up! I loved how the author kept on switching from present to past. It made me feel like I was reading two stories instead of one. This gave me the chance to really get to know who Kick really is. I have no what's next in this series, but I am so ready for more!

I give, Kick, by Carmen Jenner 4.5 raw, emotional, dark, unforgiving stars!

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.
