Goodreads Synopsis:

Every loner needs a family—and a heart to call home. The bad-boy bikers of the True Brothers MC make good as a strong, silent type shows the right woman that he can speak the language of love.

With her lowlife father in prison for manslaughter, Nicole Walker keeps her distance from the biker scene—until she meets the stud running security at her best friend’s wedding. “Tank” is big, mean, and trouble from every direction. Yet Nicole can’t take her eyes off his chiseled body, or deny the pure electricity she feels when he returns her gaze. Guys like Tank are supposed to be a one-way ride to heartbreak. So why, after a scorching night in his bed, does Nicole only want more?

From his tour in the Marines to his sister’s disastrous marriage, Tank has seen the worst that life has to offer. Ever since his father’s death, Tank’s been fiercely protective of his family—and the True Brothers have always had his back. But nothing could prepare him for a woman like Nicole, who’s determined to break down the walls around his heart. When violence strikes, placing Nicole in harm’s way, Tank digs deep to find the courage to keep her safe—and the strength to love without limits.

ARC of Resilient provided through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Not long after starting to read Resilient it became obvious that I was starting a series in the wrong order. After reading the whole book I have now vowed to go back and read the first two.

Resilient was a great edgy love story. Nicole and Tank are total opposites which worked out perfectly. Plus I am a big fan for love stories that start out in a love/hate kind of way. Their bickering was fantastic and had me giggling the whole time. Nicole is hard headed, confident, and maybe a little bitchy sometimes. But it worked for her and once you get to dig deep into who she is you’ll understand her so much better. Tank was a complete and total alpha male with a super sweet side. I honestly thought going into this that he would be more of an ass, but nope. He made a great leading man. Than you have the sexy scenes. Which when the characters are starting out not really liking each other, it makes it so much hotter.

For a romance novel about bikers, Resilient had a lot more twists and turns than I expected. It wasn’t just love and sex, this book actually had an awesome plot that kept me hook. Nicole and Tank each brought their own baggage that made the relationship more interesting. But it was the True Brothers that also had their own baggage and troubles. The whole time I’m trying to figure out who’s starting trouble and could not put a finger on it.  The only thing that I didn’t like was that this book left me with a few questions that weren’t answered.

I truly loved the True Brothers club. Everyone was a family, including the girls. Reading about tough bikers falling in love was a lot better than I thought it would be. I look forward to going back and reading the first two books!
