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.
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.
How do you save someone who is hell bent on ending it all by causing their own self destruction? Ivy is a club whore, a drug addict with "daddy issues". At least that is who everyone else sees - except for TANK. He sees someone he's not worthy to have, but he's the kind of man to take what he wants, and he's tired of waiting on Ivy to see him and get clean. But what starts as trying to clean up the junkie once and for all, leads Tank to discover all of Ivy's dark and twisted secrets.
This story left me with a book hangover. I literally had to take a couple of days to decompress. Carmen's newest book left me in much the same way that KICK did - totally gutted. TANK had my heart, but watching the interaction with his mother, and he took my soul too.
Ivy was such a strong female character. I think that's why I gravitate to Carmen's books. Ivy seems so frail and a lost cause until you see everything she has had to endure alone, and you see the strength she has. Reading this book put me on a roller coaster ride of emotions - if you're looking for laughter, it's not here. If you're looking for a dark, gut-wrenching explosion of pain, then be prepared.
I'm giving TANK - 5 stars!!!
How do you even describe such and emotional ride? I loved everything about TANK when he was first introduced in KICK, the 1st book in the Savage Saints MC series, and could not wait to read what Carmen Jenner had in store for Tank and Ivy's story. However, I was stunned, emotions were sky high and even though I thought I was prepared, I wasn't. I was all over the place emotion wise.
I need to start at the beginning...
KICK was gritty, hard, and dark and I thought I handled it really well because when I say dark, I mean abusive and harsh and lots of violence. I loved it and I thought and have to admit, I did not think TANK could be as good. I mean KICK is amazing and I would strongly recommend that it be read first, but I was so wrong. TANK stands tall and I think I love him even more than KICK which I did not think possible.
TANK is gut wrenching but yet has such an soft quality when you see happenings through his eyes. Ms. Jenner transforms this killer character into almost a hero, a broken hero but a hero non the less. I can not explain it but Tank just makes everything tolerable.
Ivy, is a whore and a junkie, and all around crazy but I was rooting for her. When every fiber in my body wanted to hate her, I wound up loving her and just wanted her to be successful in life.
I can not tell you how much I adore this series. I strongly recommend it to all but it does deal with really harsh subjects. At times I almost could not stomach some of the issues but if you know what you are getting into... ride the ride! It is scary and thrilling and nauseating but when I finished, I was exhilarated and only wanted more.
Tank by Carmen Jenner receives 5 out 5 stars....
Texas Hugs and Happy Reading!!
