Olivia Masters grew up familiar with all of them. The daughter of the President of the Nordic Lords Motorcycle Club, Olivia always knew she wanted nothing to do with any of it. Her plans were made to leave the town she grew up in as soon as she and her boyfriend, Daemon Knight, turned eighteen.

But then Olivia was shot. Her mother killed in front of her. Fleeing became her reality.
Forced to return to her hometown of Jasper Bay five years later, events beyond Olivia’s control put her directly back into the life she swore she’d never return to.

Her dad wants her back in the family. Daemon wants her in his bed.
But just as Olivia begins to accept her destiny, history finds a way to repeat itself.

This time, will Olivia be strong enough to fight for the family she once turned her back on? Or will she once again flee from the only life that has ever felt like home?

Point of Return (Nordic Lords MC #1) by Stacey Lynn
Point of Return (Nordic Lords MC, #1)Motorcycle Clubs, are they a world onto themselves? Are they above the laws that rule the rest of us or, like so many groups who deal with illegal businesses, are the codes of honor that bind them to be both admired and reviled? I’ll be the first to say, there are those bad boys whose alpha pheromones just ooze from their pores and they are hot, sexy and a fantasy for those who like a knuckle dragging caveman.

Point of Return by Stacey Lynn has it all, conflict, anti-heroes galore, women who don’t mind being the sex toys of the burly bikers and let’s not forget the turf wars, the drugs, the murders and the undying loyalty to the brothers. Which puts people like Olivia, daughter of the club president into the category of second place and the night her mother was murdered and she was shot, she knew she could not handle, so she ran, far away. Now she is back, in trouble and avoiding the club is impossible, especially when the boy who stole her heart is now a man, whose innocence was lost the day he became an NC member.

Told from the point of view of both Olivia and Daemon, only through Daemon’s most inner thoughts do we see a man I love, a man who sees right and wrong through different eyes and most definitely an anti-hero. We get see Olivia’s evolution from a woman striving to be strong and independent to one falling back into the unique world of bikers as she and Daemon make mistake after mistake failing to communicate what they feel except through sex. Their chemistry is real, but their lifestyle is not one I could reconcile with.

Definitely filled with intrigue, feuds, wars, death and all the sex you could want, I just couldn’t quite let go of reality enough to say, wow, that was HOT! Stacey Lynn is a powerful writer, she is NOT afraid to lay it all out there and say, here it is, in all of its creative glory. I admire that, and I did like so many elements of the plot, some of the characters are fantastic, but it’s hard to love a group that places so little value on life or considers another their property.
