A broken past doesn’t stop him from wanting a future with her.


I’d never wanted anything for myself until Nina stepped into my life.

We were just two lives that came from ruined childhoods, growing up together, relying on each other. And my sole mission was to protect her at all costs.

I was happy and content making her my priority.

Until I wasn’t because I wanted her as m

Like the warning ”says it might short but it’s sweet hot and filthy with a HEA.” I really enjoyed this quick read! love LOCH and Nina they had an incredible chemistry. My favorite part about this author’s quick reads is there is no OW/OM drama right to the point. Looking forward to Merc’s book. 💜

Since the day Nina entered the same foster home as Loch and the other guys, she's been an integral part of his life. He knew she was special and they became fast friends. As they both grew up, that friendship became so much more on both sides, and while neither hide the looks of longing aimed at each other, they never said anything about it.

The guys formed an MC club, the Devil's Boys, and Nina is a part of that yet she isn't. She's not in the MC per se, but she does work with them and help wher

5 Stars!

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, and dirty talking naughty fun.

This is Nina and Loch’s story. Nina knows Loch is protecting her, but she wants more. They are friends, but can they be more? Or is friends all they have? What if they go beyond friends and it doesn’t work out? They are already ruined from the childhood they had can they figure out what they want before the ruin the future also? He wants her, but can she be his? Can these two really have a future toge

This is the first book in The Devil’s Boys MC series it’s a very short read but still very enjoyable.

Loch has wanted Nina for what feels like forever but as the vice president of The Devil’s Boys he knows the possible dangers she could face by being with him and keeps his distance as much as he can but of anyone touches what is his he will destroy them.

Nina has been a part of the Devil’s Boys since they were founded and she loves all the members as if they were her brothers, well all except fo

I'm usually not one to gravitate towards MC books but Give It Up by Jenika Snow has definitely got me rethinking that. Even though it was a short read I was more than entertained and left wanting more. I love that there's a background already set for the characters, with everyone growing up together and having each other's backs. Now as adults and that bond is only growing stronger, especially between Loch and Nina, who have always had more than friendly feelings for one another but have been to ...more

Great READ! This MC story is not what anyone would expect but I love that it's very light on violence, debauchery you would normally get in an MC romance book, fast pace, insta-love? Love It! Definitely 5 stars.

This was such a great new MC read. I loved the history between the characters. The real feeling of brotherhood. The chemistry and the sweetness between the leads was spot on. Great read.

The entire setting of this book about the hero already being a goner for the heroine and so is she but nobody has acted on it yet.. I looooove.
This is a new series by Jenika Snow. And as always whrn she releases something I close my eyes and scream MINE MINE MINE!
I absolutely adored this. Loch and Nina were totally perfect. It's a quick story with enough story and steam for a crazed up insta lover like me.

Every bit as hot and steamy as it is fast Give it Up will leave you fanning yourself and with a hearty full of warm and fuzzies over the over the top sweetness! A wonderful quick instalove escape that you can devour any time you need a break. Just be ready to need to cool off after you’ve finished because Loch and Nina have some electric heat!

This was a short and sweet with plenty of sexiness to it. I read it all within one afternoon not only because it was a short read but because I couldn't put it down. I LOVED Loch!!! That boy I want in my corner and bed at ALL times!

"This is a new MC series and if this book proves it is going to be hot. Loch grew up with the other members of the MC in foster care. Nina grew up with them and they all protect her, but Loch watches over her and protects her the most.

Couldn't get enough of Loch & Nina. Wow. A short, intense, smoldering hot story. I'm voluntarily leaving an honest review for a copy of the book.

I really liked this story. Of course, it's a new MC story which is one of my favs to read.
Loch has been in love with Nina but he's never stepped up and let her know. He's protected her. Now he's a member of the Devil's Boys MC and Nina is an intrinsic part of their lives.
Nina has loved Loch forever and he's always been there watching her, protecting. Nina has decided that it's time to come clean and now she just has to get Loch alone. She is always at the MC doing the books, stocking the bar an

Even though she wasn't an official member of the MC, she worked for them, managing shipping and receiving, accounts, and all the financials of the legit side of the business. Merc, the President, Loch, the Vice President, Perch, Chopper, Hemp, and Zane were all the founding members of the Devil's Boys MC. Nina had grown up with them while they all bounced from foster home to foster home. She'd gone to school with them and bailed them out of jail more times than she could count. They were like he ...more

Nina and Loch have been close for a long time, best friends. They both are too scared to take the chance on confessing their feelings. When Loch and the others formed the MC, it was only natural that Nina basically joined too. She kept the books on the club's businesses and helped them look legit. Loch made sure that everyone knew to leave Nina alone. Till one night, a prospect decided to push his luck. Now, there is no stopping Loch. He will deliver a beat down for sure. But when he stops, will ...more

WOW just WOW is what I said after reading this book. I LOVE MC books and I love the world so when I saw Jenika had a new series coming out I just had to read it. I was not disappointed with this book at all but I will say if your a true MC lover this book does not have a lot of violence and debauchery like other MC books which to me was a breath of fresh air.

Loch my God do I wish he was real because he is the type of man I would want. He is so protective and loving of Nina that he was more like

This is a short, fast paced book by Jenika Snow that is book 1 of her brand new MC Series. If this is a true example pf the way the rest of the series is going to be like then she has a winning series here. So well written with characters that are interesting, realistic and exciting. Lock and Nina both had traumatic childhoods but they had each other. They are now involved with The Devil's Boys MC and Lock is so close to her but , yet, doesn't have her for real and he needs her.

Wow, what a hot and dirty story! Loved it!!!!

Loch and Nina have known each other since they were kids in the foster care system. Both their childhoods were not that great, but they were surrounded by some other boys in foster care and became like a tight knit family. The boys started The Devil's Boys MC and Nina runs the legal business side of things. Nina and Loch have been dancing around their feelings for each other for years and something's got to give.

Give it Up by Jenika Snow is a short quick read about an Alpha biker (Loch) who’s always had a thing for Nina, a girl he met when they both were in foster care.

My biggest issue with this book is that it falls short. The characters are likeable but the story gets repetitive and some of it reads as filler. The story doesn’t end in a cliffhanger. We get a little glimpse as to where the next book will come from.

I’ll probably read the next book in the series. They seem to be short stories after all

So Im not usually into MC books, but I have to say Ive enjoyed this story, though club activity etc is talked about, it centres around Nina and Loch and focuses more on their relationship. Its a novella that still packs a punch! I really enjoyed how their story unfolded. It was sweet how they each felt but didnt feel like they could tell the other. Loch is a very broody character and I loved how he took care of Nina even as he thought he didnt deserve her. It has great secondary characters that ...more

Soon as you start this book you are drawn straight in, which is good as its a short read. I will be honest with the fact that I normally avoid short reads as I prefer full length novels, and if I had known this was a short story I probably wouldn't have signed up for it but I am glad I did.

Jenika wrote the characters so well that I connected with them straight away and I really want to read more about them.

This is Nina and Loch's story. They met in foster care and Loch had developed an

Give It Up is a sexy, straight to the point story by Jenika Snow that will keep you warm in the winter! The Devil's Boys MC core is made up of men who grew up in the system since their childhoods were terrible, and Nina, their resident woman who takes care of their books, was part of it. She's had a thing for Loch for a while, and it's a feeling that's returned, but both are too scared to tell the other. Finally, they take a chance, the chemistry explodes, and they set the sheets on fire! So yea ...more
