 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.

Gritty, intense, brutal and dark.

These are just a few words that come to mind when I think of how to describe MC novel, Kick by Carmen Jenner. This is not going to be a biker book that everyone will love, touchy subjects and dark elements will prevent some from reading on. However, those that do read on, those dark romance lovers out there, will definitely fall at Kick's feet and ingest every moment of this story with empathy for him and everything he has been through. 

I'm not the hero in this story; I'm the motherf**king villain.

Miss Jenner has given us the brilliant, yet very emotional story of Daniel(Kick) and the brutality life has shown him growing up as a biker brat, birthed by a junkie, and raised by a father who wishes he hadn't forgotten the condom. Even though there is some romance, a heroine and a happily ever after in this novel, I do feel it is predominantly 'Kick's story'. He is a total badass, a major asshole and he doesn't really have a romantic bone in his body. So if you're after a hearts and flowers kind of biker who will have you melting at the sound of his voice, then Kick is not for you. Kick is real, raw and original. I personally did fall for him, but now you can't say you haven't been warned. 

I like to watch her cry. I taste her tears. I relish them. Because pain is beauty, at least in my world. And everything in my world is pain. 

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book from cover to cover! (except for those cringe worthy moments involving darker elements of the story.) It was refreshing to read something dark and different in the MC genre and I personally can't wait for more in this series. To be honest, if I hadn't of known this story was written by Carmen Jenner, I would never have guessed it was hers. For me, she has stepped up her game considerably and it has most definitely paid off! Whether it has to do with the different genre, the story line, characters, etc, she has totally won me over with Kick. The story flowed well, character development was fantastic and her writing was compelling the entire way through. This series is very different from her Sugartown series, and I highly recommend this book to dark MC romance readers out there. Kick had a Tillie Cole/Madeline Sheehan vibe to it so if you enjoy their mc series', you will devour this one too! 

if the only redemption I receive in this life is seeing that beautiful face before I'm thrown in the fiery pits to burn for all eternity, then I'll take it. I'll take whatever this extraordinary angel of death has to offer. I'll take it willingly, and with force. I'll milk every second from that last moment of my life because her face is the only afterlife I need.

I pick up a cup of cold, stale, black coffee and chug it down. It tastes like shit, so I screw the cap off of a bottle of Jack and chase the black filth with the burn of amber. I set it back on the table while the familiar click of my gun being cocked echoes through my small room. I laugh. Fucking ballsy bitches make me hot.
“Hands in the air, and turn around. Slowly,” the woman says through a scratchy throat. I do as she asks, mostly because I want to keep my spine intact, but also partly because bitches with guns are fucking hot, and I’m hard as a rock just thinking about the way she’s gonna look with a pistol trained on me.
She’s been busy while I was out, rummaging through my drawers and finding a pair of loose tracksuit pants. They’re rolled at the waist, so much that it makes her look pregnant. That, combined with her crazy fuckin’ cat lady hair and the filth covering her body, makes her look like a homeless person.
I smile and clasp my hands behind my head. Her eyes rove over me, taking in my size. She’s checking me for the arsenal I so obviously have stashed away in my fucking worn, faded jeans. She’s not checking me out and dreaming about me taking her rough and hard on my fucking scratched-up dining table, but I still get a fucking boner out of having her eyes roam all over me.
“Pick up the keys, and open the door,” she commands.
“If you run, they’ll shoot you.”
“Pick up the fucking keys.”
I snatch up the keys and lob them at her, hard enough that she has to twist out of the way. She cries out as she does, proving to me that her ribs are definitely injured, maybe even cracked. I lunge at her. Shoving her back against the bed, I land on top of her, warding off her blows with one hand and squeezing her wrist with the other until she drops the gun on the floor.
“Get off me!” she screams.
“You’re not leaving this clubhouse,” I whisper in her ear as she struggles beneath me. “The best you can hope for is to play nice and I might decide to keep you as a house mouse. But if you piss me off, and if you pull on me with my own gun again, your life will be so much worse. You thought the dentist was fucked up? Baby, you haven’t seen anything until you’ve lived inside my fantasies for a day. So if I were you, I’d be really fuckin’ careful about how you play your next move.”
