I have loved Janie and Zane in their dreamworld since they first met. For them to have their own story outside of the dreamworld was awesome. Loved that readers did not have to wait a zillon books before they got their own story. Rebecca Zanetti did a great job at gradually building these characters friendship with teasesrs in each book and did something I have yet to see. In one book it actually jumped ahead a few years so they would be in their 20's. Brilliant so readers would not have to wait forever since they were kids.
Marked was all kinds of amazing with many "I did not see that coming moments" and "edge of my seat moments". I fell harder for Zane. He will do anything to protect Janie and his loved ones. What made his character feel so real is that deep inside he is afraid of failing and loosing his loved ones. Zane and Janie were perfect for eachother. He is over protective of her but she can hold her own. After all she has been raised by her over protective dad and uncles. Loved that she was feisty and had a smartmouth. The banter between her and Zane left for some giggle moments.
Marked was unpredictable with suprises and twists that I could not swipe my kindle fast enough.

I have two huge issues about Storm. One is readers are told instead of shown. The prologue could of been amazing and a bit gritty if the readers were not thrown in a middle of a scene, but actually were shown how the characters got to that point. From there readers are pretty much told and not shown through out the novel. Because of this I was having a hard time feeling connected with the hero Jason and the heroine Madison's romance.
Second issue I had was Madison. She was so annoying. Her father is the President of the Storm Motorcycle Club and her brother is the VP. She grew up with the club. So she knows how certain things work. For her not to understand how certain things work in the club life made no sense. The way she was always on his case about the club got old. Her attitude felt so pushed to cause some kind of minimal angst between them.
I liked Jason also known as J. He had a bit of an alpha vibe going on. Nothing about him really was rememberable. At times I forgot I was reading a biker read as none of the characters have any biker names. Jason is called J but that is just his nickname.
There were times when a few good moments would happen that I thought wow now it is getting good. Those moments did not last long as they were brushed over.
What made me keep reading and saved the book for me was Scott her brother. Loved his character and the relationship he had with his sister Madison and Jason.
I did overall enjoy Nina Levine's writing voice. Her storytelling and writing voice could of shined in Storm if she did not hold back. Since I did take a liking to Scott and I am curious to see where Nina Levine is taking this series I will be checking out Fierce (Storm #2). ...more
