Simple. Neat. Orderly.

A place for everything, and everything in its place.

Karmen Handel’s life growing up had been anything but quiet and simple. A deadbeat father, a mother who never wanted her, and a grandmother who could care less were the perfect recipe to ensure Karmen built a wall around herself and never let anyone in. When her past comes back to haunt her, Karmen h

Loved, loved, loved Nickel! He was a great hero. He did everything right in my book.

Karmen was a pain in the ass. At first, I thought she was the type of heroine I love...sweet, shy and awkward. And while she was all those things, after a while her self-deprecation and doubts just grated on my nerves. She was constantly trying to push Nickel away because she couldn't see what he saw in her. I was ready to take her and shake the shit out of her. Everything he did showed her he was all about her.

There are a few solid sex scenes that come relatively fast but were hot.

The bad….there was a lot for me.  I didn’t fall in love with Nickel’s alpha side.  It totally rubbed me the wrong way. One minute, he is a sweet charming guy and then he is yelling at some guy because he tripped on their blanket while they were maki

Audiobook review. Couldn’t really connect with the characters. Not my kind of alpha with some very exaggerated reactions to simple situations. Not my kind of heroine with some annoying characteristics.

The plot was ok but it didn’t really move me. I was more interested in the secondary characters.

Narrators did well. Good tone and fluctuations.

Badass biker hero meets his dream girl and pursues her for a year. I didn’t notice any mention of ow so I would assume Hero was celibate since he met the heroine. I liked the writing and the story better than Loving Lo (Winter Travers’ more popular MC book).

Low angst, hot, fun, sweet MC romance. Great hero who knew what he wanted and a sweet heroine. Definitely want to read more of this series.

Nickel was the first book in Winter Travers Fallen Lord’s MC series.

Nickel was a patched member of the Fallen Lord’s MC. He was close to his grandmother who was in a nursing home. He lusted after his grandmother’s nurse, Karmen, for a year until she finally agreed to go out with him. Nickel was a typical gorgeous, protective and confident alpha that wasn’t afraid to ask for or take what he wanted.

Karmen had very few people in life who she counted on. Her mom left her young, her dad was in prison

"Sweet and innocent meets ruthless and wild."

I've been wanting to read this author for a while. I've got several of her books waiting on my kindle, but I decided to start with Nickel since it was the beginning of her new Fallen Lords MC series. Yeah, I admit I'm addicted to MC Romance, I can't resist a badass biker.

Karmen is a sweet likable character who tends to spend too much time in her own head. After getting to know her, I can totally understand her tendency to compartmentalize everythin

**RECEIVED ARC FOR HONEST REVIEW**

Let me preface my review by saying I have loved Winter Travers works since the first time I began reading her books. Nickel is no different. I did enjoy it. But...

Okay, the book really was in need of better proofing. I know we all make grammatical mistakes. We misspell words, leave words out, add an extra word, and so on. When I have to constantly stop and re-read a sentence to see if the sentence is

As a huge lover of MC romances Nickel ticked all the boxes for me. Nickel is the hot alpha biker who has been chasing Karmen, the quiet, reserved and shy nurse from the nursing home his grandmother is at for the past year. Once Karmen takes the biggest leap of her life and gives this outlaw a chance her life takes a whole different turn. This first book in this series will have you falling in love with not only Karmen and Nickel but all the men of the Fallen Lords MC. Their story has just the ri ...more

Man oh man!!

I don't read nearly enough MCs and this one has me wanting to go an on MC binge. I think I just might do that.

Karmen didn't have much in life, much less a life she was happy with. Once she was old enough to be on her own, she did what she had to do to make sure she was in control. She made sure she had stability and lived her life how she wanted. She had a job she loved and a best friend she couldn't live without. And a man, is never something she wanted or would even le

4.5 stars!!! Winter, Winter, Winter you lyric gangster you. You just BOOM blew my mind. This was a great and perfect start to a new MC series. It has it all , smoking hot male, sexy female, drama, tension, sex, more drama, climax and HAPPY ever after! And then the peek into the next books and OMG , I need that book like now! No really now woman!! But this was a fantastic read, and a great start to another mind blown series from Winter Travers.

I Voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book

This author's books I have loved from the first book and every book since then. This one was no different.

Karmen Handel had a crappy childhood. Her mother left and her father is in prison. She then had to go live with her grandmother who was not the most affectionate person. So she grew up thinking she wasn't anything special and kept everyone out. The only person she let in was her best friend Nikki.
Now she works at an old age home and her life

Nickel is a member of the Fallen Lords MC , they are a bunch of lady loving ,licker drinking ,Rowdy SOB's and cross them or their families and they're ruthless , but all Nickel seems to want is one chance in the sack with the nurse taking care of his loved one.
Once he gets to know Karmen and realizes she's in imminent danger will he stick around for just her safety or a chance at real love ?
I loved the first book in the Fallen Lord's series . Nickel was the total Biker package of major hotness

This is my first Winter travers book yes i'm a newbie but Nickels book make me question what have I been thinking that I have never read a Winter Travers book before.
Nickel is everything any women could want truth be told I want him. He's protective, confident, and down right sinful looking. He's a member of the Fallen Lord MC's and is use to getting what he wants, and right now all he wants is his Grandmothers nurse Karmen.
Karmen has a hard time trusting people ever since her mother left her,

I come across this author for the first time and wanted to dive in to see how this one goes. Reading more MC novels lately these characters caught my eye. I wanted to see what Nickel was all about with her on my radar also. Karmen is a bit different than most you read in this role but she does have his eye. I find though he is the one that sinks into me getting me in deep to his story. His heart is huge but he is a man that is all that too. He does have to be persistent with curiosity getting th ...more

This is my first book I have read by Winter Travers and it wont be my last. Karmen is a nurse and meets Nickel at the Nursing Home where she works. He has been visiting his grandmother for a year now and trys to get Karmen to see him. But Karmen is shy and reserved. Finally, Nickel asks her to join him at an event and she says yes. Nickel is a sweet, alpha male who helps Karmen out of her shell and through his love gives her the courage to open up and be herself. I love the funny banter between ...more

Not my favorite book by Travers. There isn't too much haracter development for the hero (Nickel) of the story. We need more backstory and why he does the things he does in this story to connect to him. I also found that there were just too much advanced in this arc. As in there were so many grammar and spelling mishaps that I honestly had to stop to figure out some things. Overall I did enjoy the plot and the heroine. And I also look forward to reading more about these MC.

Arc from author. Book 1 in this hot new mc romance series. This book is perfect if you don't usually read mc romance books. This one leave out some of the gritty side that other mc books do. But it has great alpha bikers that are tough but are protective an real men like all the author's leading men. Nickel and Karma doesn't look like the perfect couple but they work and makes for a great book. Looking forward to seeing what comes next with this series

Oh boy, what a great book. I have been seriously missing out on the MC genre, Winter Travers has seated herself in the top 5 of favorite MC authors. She has a phenomenal way of telling a story. And the characters. Wow, just wow!

While I don't normally read MC books, I had to read this one. Why, you ask? Because of the Nickel and his alpha ways. That man is sin in motorcycle boots. He's fine as heck and super domineering. Karmen was one lucky girl.

I am glad that I gave this author a chance, and y
