Illusive (Storm MC Series) by Nina Levine
He’s been burnt by love.
Griff Hawkins keeps his pain locked away and the ghosts of his past buried even deeper. Three years ago, he chose the Storm MC as his family and accepted the ways of their violent world. These days, he lives his life with one rule – don’t get attached to anyone but his club.
She longs to be loved.
Sophia Barnes aches to know real love, and lives her life with arms wide open, ready to embrace the possibilities that come her way.
When Griff’s past is exposed and his place in the club is jeopardised, he fights for his family the only way he knows how, regardless of the consequences.  That is, until he meets the woman who brings him to his knees, giving him something to lose.
Can they teach each other to leave the sins of the past behind or will Griff’s demons dictate their future?


His strokes were slow and rhythmic, designed to work a woman to a crazed state. I should know because he was slowly taking me there. He didn’t want me to come yet, but that was getting harder and harder with each new round of pleasure. Each time a wave crashed over me, my muscles threatened to let my body collapse onto the bed. I wasn’t sure how much longer I could hold myself up.

And not to reach out and touch him? That was a whole other level of how-the-fuck-will-I-make-it-through-this?

He pushed another finger inside so I now had two delivering me heaven. I writhed under his touch, my muscles seriously beginning to tire. My eyes squeezed close and my fingers curled into a ball, wanting desperately to cling to something, but unable to latch onto anything the way they were tied. The orgasm that continually tried to shatter me, moved dangerously close until it reached the point where I thought I could no longer fight it.

“Griff, I can’t…I can’t do this anymore.” I panted as my muscles gave way and my body dropped to the bed.

His fingers left me, and in what felt like a split second, he had me flipped onto my stomach, and he’d moved so his knees were on the bed, either side of my legs. One of his hands landed on the bed beside me while he placed the other one on my back. He growled into my ear, “Do you know what happens when you don’t obey me, Sophia?”
My breathing had turned into pants and my muscles were screaming at me, all while my pussy pulsed with need. “No,” I managed to get out, even though I struggled to form a thought while my mind tried to deal with all my senses at once.

“When you don’t do as I say, I get to punish you, in any way I want.”

Lita T’s Review:  4.5 ★★★★.5

Illusive(Storm MC, #5) by Nina Levine is Griff’s Story. We do not know much about Griff except that he is a member of Storm, he became the VP of Storm when Marcus was making his power play within the club and now is the VP once Marcus was killed by Blade. We now get to find out who Griff really is. He has many secrets and demons of his own and he really does not hang out much with the other club members unless it is club business. Than one day a leggy blonde walks into the bar Griff was drowning his sorrows in. She gets his attention and he is taken with the women with the legs and butt that makes him hard. Come to find out the girl lives across the street from his aunt who he takes very good care of. Sophie has issues of her own and is trying to move on after her boyfriend cheats on her and was raised in the foster care system. I do have to say that when I found out that this book was about Griff I was not looking forward to reading this book. Griff did not peak my fancy at all and I didn’t really care about him or this story. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at how much I really liked this book. It seem that every book by this author gets better and better. The story ended in such a way that I am looking forward to see how the author writes the next threat to the club and the continuation of everyone else’s story. This story was interesting and the sex was hotter than the last book. I thought I was in lust with Blade with his dark and brooding self but Griff has taken the top spot in my line up of book boyfriends. I give Illusive 4.5 stars.


Tanya Rae’s Review: 4.5 ★★★★.5
First off you need to read this series in order: Storm, Fierce, Blaze, Revive, Slay and now Illusive.
Illusive is another great book by Nina Levine and a continuation in the Storm MC series. Illusive is Griff Hawkins & Sophia Barnes story. Griff has a big secret and no I can’t share the secret because I really try to not have any spoilers in my reviews.

I must be fickle because with each book in the Storm MC Series I have fallen in love with each lead Alpha man. In Storm it was “J” in Fierce it was Scott, in Blaze I was back to “J”, in Revive it was Nash’s turn, in Slay it was Blade’s turn and now in Illusive I love Griff!

I loved that Sophia called Griff “handsome” every time she saw him. Sophia let Griff know that she is not a “one night stand“ kind of girl. But, then she went for the one night stand hoping she could change Griff’s mind. Of course I can’t say more you need to read this series so you can know firsthand what happened and what is Griff’s secret.

I have really enjoyed the Storm MC Series and at the end of the book Nina let us know that there will be more the next book in the Storm MC series will be “Command” and will be out 10/19/15 and will be Scott & Harlow’s Continuing Story. It is nice to know that we have a fairly short wait!

I received a complimentary copy of this ARC for an honest review. I give Illusive 4.5 stars
