Resilient by Gillian Archer

Every loner needs a family—and a heart to call home. The bad-boy bikers of the True Brothers MC make good as a strong, silent type shows the right woman that he can speak the language of love.

With her lowlife father in prison for manslaughter, Nicole Walker keeps her distance from the biker scene—until she meets the stud running security at her best friend’s wedding. “Tank” is big, mean, and trouble from every direction. Yet Nicole can’t take her eyes off his chiseled body, or deny the pure electricity she feels when he returns her gaze. Guys like Tank are supposed to be a one-way ride to heartbreak. So why, after a scorching night in his bed, does Nicole only want more?

From his tour in the Marines to his sister’s disastrous marriage, Tank has seen the worst that life has to offer. Ever since his father’s death, Tank’s been fiercely protective of his family—and the True Brothers have always had his back. But nothing could prepare him for a woman like Nicole, who’s determined to break down the walls around his heart. When violence strikes, placing Nicole in harm’s way, Tank digs deep to find the courage to keep her safe—and the strength to love without limits.

Book three in the True Brothers series, this one is Tank's book. He's a Desert Storm vet with PTSD. Tank has been a one-and-done kind of guy since joining the True Brothers. He isn't looking for anything long-term after his horrible divorce. Nicole is Jessica's friend and bridesmaid and she doesn't "do" bikers. In fact, she loathes them and has tried to talk her friends out of being with the other True Brothers. Being there for Jessica is priority though and Nicole has to suck up her disdain and do her friendship duties. Doesn't hurt that Tank is pretty darn nice to look at and fun to goad. We don’t know why Nicole is averse to bikers until things become clear when her one-percenter dad is released from prison.

Tank and Nicole progress nicely without too many starts and stops. I really fell for Tank and enjoyed his character. Written really well with moments of tenderness but all around badassery, he's a great alpha male. Nicole had good sass and backbone and was a well written interest for a man like Tank. I'm invested in this club and look forward to the next book! Solid 4-star read.

As the True Brothers MC gets ready for Zag and Jessica's wedding, Nicole Walker is trying hard to accept her BFF's new life as the wife of a biker. While she hasn't told anyone about growing up with a father that was a biker who was sent to prison for murder, Nicole doesn't want to end up like her mother did by giving into a biker for even one night.

Tank is the one biker not looking for more than one night. After his tours in the Marines, his own marriage that didn't last, and watching his sister put up with a deadbeat husband, Tank knows that he is not relationship material.

So Tank and Nicole give in to one night because the chemistry between them is just too strong to ignore. And since Tank is easy on the eyes, one night turns into two and they can't seem to stay away from each other.

What happens when the club has trouble and they think it might be a rival club or mafia? Will Tank and Nicole keep things going and make a relationship work? What happens when Nicole's father shows back up?

I love this series and I hope there will be more. It is filled with love, laughter, heartache, heartbreak, and suspense. If you are looking for a great MC series that will have you wanting more, then give this one a read, you will love it too.

I really enjoyed this MC romance – I'd definitely consider it in the more "tame" side as far as MC books go, so if you're looking for a lighter motorcycle read, this one is for you!

Nicole comes from a past that she's tried to keep hidden from everyone. She's very judgmental when it comes to her friends’ relationships with their "MC men" as she absolutely hates motorcycle clubs and wants nothing to do with them. One of her friends is marrying a biker though and Nicole is having trouble sticking to her disdain when the gorgeous Tank is assigned to be the girls’ "detail." Neither Tank nor Nicole is interested in anything long term and decide a one-night stand would be perfect... except it's not enough.

My absolute least favorite part of this book was Nicole's "friends." They were absolute A-holes and I am still upset with how mean/nasty they are to Nicole throughout this book, like I really was waiting for Nicole to fire back and kick them to the curb, but it doesn't happen. It's the sole reason I'm giving a 4 instead of 5-star rating.
