Havoc can be read as a standalone.
I was happy doing my own thing.
Just me, my club and a whole lot of dirty work to take care of.
She never wanted a biker.
She wanted stability and I gave up on that years ago.
We tried to fight it.
Neither of us wanted it.
But she calms my fury and I show her a man who accepts every part of her.
Now we’re trying to figure out how to be together.
Because when the need for each other is this strong, to deny it will only cause complete havoc.
You want me, you have to work for me.
Havoc is part of Nina Levine’s Storm MC series, but it can be read as a standalone.
Havoc’s been having a hell of a day. It’s while drinking away his problems at a bar that he meets Carla. She’s bold as brass, and their one night of hot-lovin’ blows his mind. Fast forward a few weeks, and he meets Carla again…when she hits his car. But Havoc’s dedicated to the nomad biker lifestyle, and the last thing he wants to do is settle roots again in Brisbane. Love and lust have other plans.
I really love a good MC romance, and Havoc had enough club politics thrown in with the romance to keep my interest. Havoc is an abrupt, what-you-see-is-what-you-get, hardcore guy. He settles business for the Storm MC—the more violent the conflict, the better. He’s been put through the ringer the last time he opened up to someone so he doesn’t expect to want that again with Carla. To be fair, his will doesn’t stand a chance against Carla’s persistence!
Carla was a pretty badass character. She’s very upfront about wanting Havoc’s body, and the girl has a mouth on her! She gives tit-for-tat where Havoc is concerned, and the story really needed that for her. Carla is stuck in a rut as well though. Not happy with her current job situation, it takes a confrontation as well as a push from Havoc to get her on the right path. But when she falls in love with Havoc— the biker who was supposed to be an easy hookup—things get complicated.
The intimate scenes were pretty scorching simply because these two are such dirty talkers. It’s not just Havoc on the prowl. Carla’s more than willing to capture her man. The scenes aren’t particularly detailed at points, but boy, are Carla and Havoc always in the sack. I swear, Carla gives him a little lip, and Havoc’s raring to go again. I ended up skimming some of these. They become more repetitive than necessary to the plot.
The side characters were a lot of fun too. I enjoyed Carla’s friend, Velvet, and I definitely need to go back and read J’s story.
Overall, Havoc was a quick and spicy read.
