Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession
4 One and Done Stars

I enjoyed Resilient a little more than I enjoyed the last book. I really loved Tank. He was so yummy and totally bad ass. I liked Nicole but she got on my nerves at times. I understood were she was coming from and why she didn't like bikers but she was too judgy at times. I did really like Tank and Nicole together. I felt that Tank handled Nicole well. He was good to her and treated her well but didn't take her crap. I really didn't like the way Jessica acted to Nicole. I

descriptionI enjoyed the previous book in the series so I was looking forward to digging into this one. Alas, it just wasn't all that great for me.

The writing was excellent. This author has a very readable way of writing. The pace was good as well and kept me turning the pages. Nicole and Tank had some funny moments. There wasn't any OW/OM drama. I wouldn't even say there was a lot of

Zag has been my favorite but I think Tank has knocked him down to 2nd place. I loved Tank! I also love that the author is keeping this MC series a safe read for us readers who aren't a fan of cheating or mistreatment of women. She did however, throw a wrench into this book. Nothing against the main characters, but it still made me cry. Besides that the only thing I didn't care for was the couples need to keep things from going serious at first. They stayed loyal to each other, but was in complet ...more

Author is now on my poop list. Did you really have to do that?

Tank was big and all kinds of yummy and just perfect for Nicole. Nicole had biker issues, but it sure did take awhile for her to reveal them. Loved how their relationship evolved. It was great seeing all the previous couples again. Here's hoping the viking named Bam Bam is up next.
I enjoy MC stories but dislike the ones that involve a lot of other women drama and wild parties where anything goes. I know nothing about real life inside a club but I know what I like and Gillian Archer’s True Brothers is what I like.

Nicole has been judgmental about the relationship her friends have with members of the local motorcycle club. She has a deep aversion to bikers and doesn’t hide that fact from anyone, not even the bikers themselves. So when things start to heat up between her and

This book in the series was more like the first book in the series. I took longer to read because I was pestered by my kids to stop reading and do something with them! 🙃

I really liked Tank. He wasn't that picture perfect hero of the story. He had his issues, but just had a really big heart. I loved in the story how he just would say it like it is, but then just get all flustered with Nicole after. He was hot sexy and sweet, but still the king of the castle. My heart went out to him with his PTSD

I love this author!!!

I love this book and this series. I feel like it gets better and better with each book. I had been looking forward to reading about Tank. He doesn't want to get involved with Nicole because he feels that she is a forever type of girl with a hint of snooty and sees her disdain for his biker brothers. However, he can't seem to stop thinking about her the more he sees her. Nicole ends up coming on to him and

I was so excited to dive into this book. There were some pretty hilarious scenes. That scene in the car? When Tank and Nicole were taunting and teasing each other was like, the cutest thing ever. I'd say the book started off at the light side and then started becoming a little intense.
I loved the bad boy attitude with Tank. He's a biker, could he be more badass than that?

MC books aren't my usual fare but this one attracted my attention and I'm glad it did. Book 3 in the True Brothers MC.
Nicole hasn't got thing one good to say about bikers despite the fact her best friends are either married to them or are going to be. Nicole is a piece of work, I liked her snark especially with the men. There's a reason for Nicole's often times brash behavior, which comes to light later in the book.

The Romance Book Disciple (Samantha)

Resilient is book 3 in the True Brothers MC series. There are some crossover story arcs so it might be best to read in order. The book starts with the wedding of a previous couple, Jessica and Zag. Nicole is Jessica's friend and she has a very strong hatred for bikers. She is a bit rude and condescending about it really.

You do learn Nicole's reasons for her strong feelings about bikers. She does have valid reasons from her past that make her cautious. However, I still thought her actions a

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. This is part of an MC series, now you probably feel that you can read it as a standalone, but you will get more if you read them all. So this book features, Tank and Nicole, and with all biker books, before they meet the girl they are serious about, they have the club "tramps" or the girls that they pass around, which I find disgusting, but it is to be expected in most biker books, and I knew that, but then again, these girls, should get some sel ...more

First off I just love this series and the True Brothers are the best kind of bikers that being said,Tank is one of my favorites. Tank is the strong silent type who really doesn't say much but he is stuck taking the bride Jessica and her friend Nicole running wedding errands. After the shooting Zag wasn't about to let Jessica go anywhere unguarded but Tank is not complaining he loves listening and looking at Nicole but he thinks she is off limits and she doesn't date bikers.

3 stars for Risilient by Gillian Archer

ARC (unedited) provided by Netgalley for an honest, unbiased review.

This is the first book I've read in this series, and while I liked it well enough, it wasn't something I find myself wanting to revisit in order to read the rest of the series. As an aside, I struggle to really get into biker books anyway, so that may have some bearing on my enjoyment of the book.

This is the third book in this series and it was really good! I have read all three and this was my favorite! Loved Tank and Nicole!

This book has all the elements of a good MC read. Alpha males, smart, sassy women that love them, great secondary characters, believable story, mystery and suspense, funny moments, sweet and tender moments, hot and sexy times!

I loved the first two books and gave them 4 stars but some reason this one just went a bit beyond them so I gave it 5 stars. Mostly, it was Tank - what's not to love about him. He's been through hell in Afghanistan - suffers from PTSD. Went through a shit marriage but what I loved most about him was his love for his poor old dog Stella - she helped him when he most needed it and now he was taking care of her. Let's face it the fact that he could deal with Nicole and actually found her amusing wa ...more

This is my first book by Ms. Archer. Yes, I didn’t have a clue this book was part of a series, but trust me I didn’t have a problem keeping up one bit. I love MC books like this one that throws in the perfect amount of angst with the perfect amount of alpha goodness. And Tank is a total alpha male through and through.

Tank is definitely a bad boy or at least his attitude comes off as a total bad boy. And Nicole is determined to steer clear of all men that are bikers, but fate has other plans

For me this was everything I love but on the lighter side of the scale. I love bad boys, I love MC books, I love sagas and this was all that in an enjoyable and refreshing less dramatic package. I know some don't like all the heavy stuff or the criminal/darker stories that revolve around the MC world. If you know anyone like that then recommend these books to them! Gillian is a talented writer and I look forward to checking out her other books.

Requested and received an ARC from NetGalley.

So if you like sexy biker books and need a new read this may work for you. I found it enjoyable, and Tank and Nicole were a likable couple but I found that I was left wanting more history on Tank, especially since he had been in the military and had a PTSD service dog. I also found Nicole's history a bit confusing since the first time she tells Tank it sounds like her dad spread the physical abuse throughout the family but later she says that only her

Resilient is the third novel in the True Brothers MC series, one I've been following from the beginning, and just like the first two novels in the series, it gets a 5-star rating from this reader.

The two major characters in this novel are Nicole and Tank, and as the novel opens, they are both accompanying and running pre-wedding errands for Jessica and Zag, another biker couple we met in the first novel, whose wedding is one week away. Nicole has made no secret of the fact that she doesn't like

The minute Tank-Shawn- saw Natalie he knew he wanted to sleep with her. Anything more was for people who still had hope left inside them. But that’s not for Tank. Afghanistan had killed him even though he still walked around and looked alive, he was dead inside. So he had sex with women than left them. He only played with woman who knew the score. He made sure they all knew what to expect from him. Tank was a member of the True Brothers MC. They were at the hospital , bikers on one side and jess ...more

This is not your typical MC biker series. There isn’t graphic violence and blood shed. It emphasizes that family isn’t just those blood related.

Nicole Walker has a family history no one knows about, including her two best friends. She is intelligent, mouthy, sassy, cusses like the bikers, outwardly self-confident and carries a huge chip on her shoulder when it comes to bikers. We don’t discover until much later in the book why she feels this way. She is the Queen of one and done. I didn’t like N

This is the third book in the series and it is dealing with Nicole. While they are getting ready for the wedding from the characters in the first book. Nichole is dealing with issues that she has with the biker club, because her dad was or still is a 1% and is doing time for manslaughter. Because of that the family had to move. The problem is that she has never told her two best friends. Now Tank is attracted to Nicole but knows he cannot be with her because he is damaged. After his fourth tour ...more

2.5 slightly confused, kinda disappointed stars. Good solid start but followed by a muddled middle, interrupted with a crazysauce twist, then fizzled to a weak ending. I'm new to the series, and was intrigued by Tank and Nicole's sexually charged connection from the start. Both Tank and Nicole claimed they were just going to be "one and done" with each other because they weren't relationship type people, and, well, we just know how that ends in Romancelandia.

True Brothers is a MC series that I have been enjoying and I enjoyed this one probably even a bit more than the last one. I loved Tank and in fact he is one of my all time favorite MC characters. My problem was that I thought Nicole was just a bit too judgmental and it lasted far too long. I get that she had a background that didn't show bikers in the best of light but her two best friends are in love with bikers and she has been around them enough to know you can't judge everyone based off of o ...more

I really enjoyed this MC romance - I'd definitely consider it in the more "tame" side as far as MC books go so if you're looking for a lighter Motorcycle read this one is for you!

Nicole comes from a past that she's tired to keep hidden from everyone. She's very judgemental when it comes to her friends relationships with their "MC men" as she absolutely hates motorcycle clubs and wants nothing to do with them. One of her friends is marrying a biker though and Nicole is having trouble sticking to

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review.

As the True Brothers MC gets ready for Zag and Jessica's wedding, Nicole Walker is trying hard to accept her BFF's new life as the wife of a biker. While she hasn't told anyone about growing up with a father that was a biker who was sent to prison for murder, Nicole doesn't want to end up like her mother did by giving in to a biker for even one night.

I'm loving this series and it's characters. Tank has especially been a favourite and I've been looking forward to his story. He's not ready to settle down and he wants to stay clear of Nicole, she seems like a girl you go steady with and she doesn't seem too happy with his brothers and how they live their lives. But that doesn't seem to stop him from thinking about her, and the more he see's her the better she is looking. Nicole finally comes on to him and suggest they hook up, Tank agrees whole ...more

I enjoyed all the books in the series so far. Tank and Nicole had amazing chemistry and stubborn streak a mile wide. They both had commitment issues and fought against any relationship. They went from one and done to two an shoo to sexy texting. Before you know it they are in a relationship. Yet it still is not easy. Nicole has major secrets and when it finally catches up to them it leaves devastation. The devastation caused the book to lost a 1/2 point for me
