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.

I'm not the hero in this story; I'm the motherfucking villain.


Are you easily offended? Do you like fluffy MC books with a touch of Disney? Do you like easily redeemable anti-heroes that even at their worst still have some sort of lightness to them? Well fuck that and your delicate fucking sensibilities! Because you sure as fuck are not going to find it here.

This book blew me away. If you expect “Kick” to be your usual MC novel where the hero falls head over heels for the heroine and they live happily ever after…think again. “Kick” was a very dark, gritty, disturbing with many graphic scenes tale that for sure will make you cringe, but it will captivate you at the same time. I’m still more than surprised that I enjoyed this book, because honestly I’m not a fan of MC novels. Almost all of them bore me to death. Well, let me tell you, “Ki

Third times a charm! I have read two other books by this author and bingo, I found a series by her that works for me. The writing and story line is gritty and brutal as hell. Brace yourselves friends, there’s a lot of rape of women and majority of women aren’t treated well by the MC clubs riding in the Land Down Under. Carmen Jenner gifted an action packed, intense, great read. Her c

Ladies and gentlemen this story is not for the faint of heart. This is such a dark, emotional read but it has the grit I love in my MC books.

A lot of MC hero’s lack empathy and usually have despicable personality traits. Despite that I love these type of books, because the combine all the things I love: damaged guys, forbidden love, and hot, dirty sex.

"Because that's my super power; that's the one thing I'm truly good at - betrayal.”

"I'm not the hero in this story; I'm the motherfucking villian."

Wow, this was a dark but brilliant book which follows the Savage Saints MC and the brutal lives and events that surround them.

Kick was not a romance to make you happy, it was violent and raw and dark but I was drawn into this sickening world by the brilliant writing of Carmen Jenner.

I have to admit I gave up on the Sugartown books, but am very pleased that I gave this author another chance because otherwise I woul

Kick is not a love story.

Kick is not an erotic story.

Kick is a not a story of redemption.

Kick is a story of survival.

Kick is a fucked up ride through a dark underbelly filled with violence, murder, monsters, drugs and rape.

And I enjoyed every moment of it. What does that make me?

In need of some sort of therapy, I'm sure.

Jenner gives clear warning that Kick is 'not intended for pussies', it's a warning that should be heeded.  It's not an easy read.  She didn't shy away from writing graphic, horr

Kick was one hell of a “kick” in the ass!! Pun intended!!

My first thought when it came to this read was that it was very unorthodox from the rest of the MC reads that I’ve come across. When you come across an anti-heroine who’s grown up with the MC and who later gets indoctrinated into the lifestyle and brotherhood, there’s already a sense of foreboding that comes across as a reader in what’s likely to ensue.

I’m not the hero in this story; I’m the motherfucking villain.



Kick was born and bred in the MC world where it was ingrained in him that loyalty to the club and the brothers were more important than anything else. One bad choice led to another that spiraled down to the decimation of his former club.

Now he’s with the Savage Saints MC, still trying to find his place within the brotherhood. He was tasked with

As I sit here trying to write my review for KICK by Carmen Jenner, I'm a little speechless and can't help but reflect on how much this book affected me. KICK is a brutal, gritty, violent, and poignant story that ultimately centers around survival and a man's life in the Savage Saints MC. While reading this book, I was glued to my Kindle, with my heart in my throat, and my stomach was in knots because I was terrified of what was coming.

MC books have never been my preferred genre, I read to escape my reality, to live in someone else’s if only for a few hours, the idea of all that gritty, dark, blood lust has never appealed to me, until now.

KICK was my first foray into the world of MC novels, and it was everything I expected and so much more at the same time. Kick is not a romance, nor is it the tale of a pseudo badboy waiting for the right girl to turn him good, KICK is dark, so very dark that at times I struggled for breath, s

Well honestly, I've read some really twisted, bat shit crazy books in my time, but I think Kick just hit the number one spot. I'm all in when it comes to dark romance, my crazy little Brain thrives off it, but this had me a little shocked and a little uncomfortable, making me want to put my kindle down, take a breather, inhale a glass of wine and 20 shots of vodka to maybe bring out the fluffy unicorns within the story.

Never going to happen!!

Well I wanted a hard core MC book and I sure as hell got one!!!! This is no romance novel that's for sure it pulls you in and spits you out. It was dark twisted and told the bad side of MC life which is so different from others I have read. I enjoyed it even more as the Author is a fellow Aussie and the book is based in my home town of Sydney.
Carmen is a brilliant author and I would happily read anything she wrote and am really looking forward to more Savage saints, however this book was so hard

I've been looking forward to reading this first book in the Savage Saints MC series for a while. It was my introduction to Carmen Jenner. At first I wondered how she sleeps at night with all this f*@ked up $h!t in her head. And then I had a 'duh' moment and realized that because I like to read it I could ask myself the same question. Cuz, now that I just turned the last page of Kick, I'm gonna have to try to get it out of my head long enough to catch some ZZzz'

Kick is the kind of MC book you actually wan to read. Who wants to pick up a book thinking its going to be badass bikers when we actually get fluff and rainbows? Kick is rough, dirty and in-your-face. The bikers actually do some fucked up shit and make no apologies for it.

Kick (Daniel) is our anti-hero and has issues from Oregon to Maine and back. He has some seriously fucked up thoughts that will make you cringe. When he takes on Indie he bites off more than he can chew, but in her he finally

Carmen Jenner...What the f*ck have you done to me? You gave me Elijah and chocolate banana cream pie, and Jackson with his wombat encounter. I mean, hell, you gave me Sugartown....and then you throw a complete f*cking 180 with Kick.

Well, hell, this was pretty brutal. I should hate the hero for the things he did in this book but I somehow understand the way he is. If anything, I kind of liked his character (which is very unusual for me). I was in the mood for a dark MC book and this one sated my need just fine. At some point I was an emotional, crying mess inside. I love books that make me feel. BUT the romance aspect between the hero and heroine lacked so mu

KICK is not for the fainthearted. It is gritty and raw to the core. If you’re looking to for fluff and romance, then this story is not for you. There is violence, blood, sweat, and tears. Carmen Jenner managed to take me on this twisted ride that didn't seem to end, until I was left gasping, and totally mind fucked. There came a point where I was nervous, my heart was racing, and I was afraid to continue reading. I literally had to stop and breathe, if just for a second

You know she writes crazy ass people doing crazy ass things. But this one.....


OVER. THE. TOP. At the beginning, she has a letter to the reader where she warns you...

KICK is not for the faint of heart.

She is not kidding. There is blood, rape, violence, torture, betrayal. So much betrayal. Knives, guns, fists, boots. Oh, and don't forget the brain matter. All over the freaking place. Ms Jenner is not wrong. This is not for the faint of heart.

Recommends it for: those who like dark, gritty biker books with highly disturbing content
3.5 Stars

So, here's the thing. This on it's face seems to contain all of the elements I love in a book: darkness, grit, mystery, broken characters, tatted up biker, PIERCED tatted up biker, etc. etc.

So why 3.5 stars?

First of all, 3.5 Stars means I liked the book. It's just surprising that with so many of my favorite components, it wouldn't be rated higher. If I broke it down, I would have to say that the first half of the book was probably 4 Stars. In fact, maybe even the first 3/4 of the book.

This was my first Carmen Jenner read. All I have to say is that I wasn't prepared. I think because I had a chance to meet her briefly in the lobby of hotel at BookBash last year and she was absolute sweetheart.... or the fact that I saw the covers of her previous series - Sugartown and thought of lollipops... or the fact that I actually read the preface & was promised to make me feel...
