Tank (Savage Saints MC #2) by Carmen Jenner REVIEW

Killer. Criminal. Sociopath.

All of these words have been used to describe me, and for the longest time I believed that that’s all I was.

I’m the man you call in to clean up your mess, assuming your mess is a guy who needs a bullet to the head. I’m the man the MC calls when they want their dirty work done.

I’m the man who doesn’t feel.

Until now.

Until her.

Now my mess is a woman who won’t save herself. I’ll fight like hell to save her, but at what price to the club? And at what cost to me?

Warning: TANK contains graphic violence, profanity, drug use, and explicit sexual situations that may be a trigger and cause some readers emotional discomfort. Intended for an 18+ audience only. Not intended for pussies.

Review

★★★★★ 5 Stars ★★★★★

Wow, I was not expecting this book to be so emotional! I got some serious butterflies whilst reading and after the pure darkness of book 1 Kick, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that even though Tank was a beast of a man he had a huge beautiful heart buried deep,
And who would have thought that I would come to fall in love with club whore and resident junkie Ivy? She was a mystery I never thought I could unravel but once you get past her outer walls, she is a broken and insecure woman who just needs a little TLC and the courage to be strong, because deep down she is a survivor.
This story runs parallel to book 1, where the Prez of the Savage Saints Motorcycle Club has ordered Tank to take Ivy to his cabin to help her detox. Ivy is in love with Kick, but Kick has a new woman to worry about now and is happy for his club brother to take Ivy off his hands. Ivy is so angry with her situation and lashes out at the person closest to her, Tank. He is determined to get her clean and has vowed to stop at nothing to achieve it.

“You’re in my house now, Warrior Princess, and I rule here.”

Tank and Ivy have always had a different relationship than what she has with the other members of the MC, he’s almost like her guardian angel. He is always looking out for her, even though she has never really noticed before. He too has a disturbing past, and so the pair of them have more in common than they initially thought.
This book is about two people coming together and giving each other the strength to fight for a life, and for a life without fear or torment.
A dark and gritty, often brutal and heartbreaking story, it will definitely test your limits. But with the darkness comes the light and I fell in love with these two characters a million times more than I though I would.

“I don’t feel, because feeling is weakness.
Love is weakness.
I’ve seen what it does to you when you have it and lose it, and I’ve seen them monster it can make of men who want to take it from you.”

There really isn’t much more I can say, other than to tell you that is was an amazing addition to this series. Not for the feint hearted that’s for sure, but above all it was the perfect example of a dark romance and definitely turning out to be one of the best biker series out there.
This is book 2 in the series, and although it is about a different couple, it is not advised to be read as a standalone as there is an underlying storyline which runs parallel to one another. Told in dual POV.
ARC gratefully received from the author in exchange for an honest review

Excerpt

“So, the usual?” Louis asks.

“Yeah.” Tank intervenes by knocking Louis’ arm away when he tries to hand me a menu.I glare at the obnoxious arse. “I don’t get to decide what I want?”

“Nope.” He smirks, and it’s quite possibly the millionth one I’ve seen today. “I know exactly what you want. You just need to trust me.”

“Okay then,” Louis says. “Coffee?”

“Yes,” I practically shout. “The strongest you have.”

Tank shakes his head. “Get her a latté.”

I swear if looks could kill, Tank would be burnt to a char right about now. No one takes my coffee from me and lives to tell about it.

“Your system doesn’t need any more stimulation.”

“It’s caffeine, Tank, not cocaine,” I argue. “I’m pretty sure I’ll be okay.”

He shrugs, and Louis glances nervously between us again. He looks as though he wants to flee. Tank has that effect on a lot of people. Then again, it could be the fact that I just admitted to being a junkie and at any second he’s expecting me to break out my stash and start snorting lines off of his fancy table. Louis says, “Okay, so latté it is then.”

“No, I want—”

“I’m sorry, sweetheart, but your man is too scary to say no to.” He backs away from the table, shouting, “But don’t you worry, it’ll be the best latté you’ve ever tasted. You just sit tight.”

“He’s not my fucking man,” I shout back, drawing the attention of every patron in the room, which is really only two other people, not including Louis and Kerri. I look around sheepishly and then wrap my arms around myself, turning my attention back to Tank. “Stop fucking smirking, you arsehole, or I’m walking.”

“Try it and see how far you get, Warrior Princess.”

“I’m betting I’d at least get halfway down the street before you caught up to me.”

“You wanna test that theory?” He challenges with a grin, though his gaze warms me head to toe with its intensity. “My money says you’ll make it to the door before I drag you back to the table, put you over my fuckin’ knee and spank your arse ’til it’s red raw.”

I let out a deep, shaking breath and lick my lips. Jesus Christ do I want that. I want it so fucking bad. My nipples turn rock hard and Tank’s gaze drops to my black singlet. I’m suddenly hot, wet, and hyper aware of his lingering gaze. This man is going to be the death of me.
