Review: Fierce by Nina Levine

Publication Date: 2/28/2014
Series: Storm MC #2
Rating: 4 Stars

Official Blurb:

She’s everything he’s never wanted. He’s everything she’s never known.

Scott Cole is a force to be reckoned with. As Vice President of the Storm Motorcycle Club he carries out his duties with a ruthless determination. He moves through life with a clear agenda - protect his club and his family at all costs.

He is intense.

He is loyal.

He is fierce.

He doesn’t give his love easily, but when he does, he loves fiercely. Settling down, however, has never been part of his plan. 

Harlow James is a country girl who has never met a biker in her life. She is also done with men. In her experience all they ever do is lie, cheat or steal. When she meets Scott Cole she knows he is heartbreak on legs. 

He is confident.

He is sexy.

He is bossy.

She knows she must fight her growing attraction to this complex man in order to guard her heart. When his world crashes into hers and danger comes calling, Scott’s fierce desire to protect kicks in and Harlow realises that she might just have found a man worth taking a risk on. 

Moving forward from reading Storm, I had really high hopes of the series progressing forward with a need to read the next book immediately. While, it wasn’t the level of passionate need to read now literary addiction I was hoping for, I did really enjoy Scott and Harlow’s story.

Scott is the kind of guy you see walking down the street covered in tattoos with an attitude chip on his shoulder and wonder what he’s really like. He can play the asshole when the times and clubs calls for yet he has a softness buried so deeply inside that it takes the love of good woman to show it. Scott has to be the hard-ass when it comes to club business as well as some questionable decisions his father the President is trying to throw into the clubs newly found straight way of living.  Scott is committed to both the club and his family, but some ties are meant to be broken.

 Harlow on the other is the exact opposite of Scott. She’s the sweet as cherry pie country girl that no one would ever picture living in an MC kind of lifestyle. She’s struggled in both her love and family life. She’s worked so hard to protect her mother’s business that she’s nearly knocked off her feet with a tattooed dirty mouth biker walks in with a cat to the vet clinic. Yet underneath that sweet exterior, lies the heart of woman who can decide for herself what she thinks of someone and when to turn on the fierceness. She’s a very guarded and untrusting soul when it comes to the wiles of men especially this badass biker who seems to want to not only get into her very wet panties, but into her family’s life too.

All in All, Fierce continued on with a slightly less than stellar connection with the characters for me that I was really hoping would be felt after reading Storm.  I feel like the ending to this particular book was a little rushed and haphazardly put into motion. I was left kind of wondering as I turned the last past of where was the rest of the ending? Did that detract about my feeling about the story and characters? Honestly, it did. But, I think that Nina has started getting the hang of writing a complex story with such a bevy of different emotional kinds of characters. I think as the series progresses that her writing chops will only continue to improve book after book.  I am not giving up on this series just yet!!
