Point of Return (Nordic Lords MC, #1) by Stacey Lynn
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 is the first book in the Nordic Lords MC series and what an incredible debut it is too!
With the popularity this genre has due to the success of authors such as Madeline Sheehan and of course the juggernaut that is Sons Of Anarchy; authors seem to be making the transition over to the gritty and raw world of Biker romance. Some are okay, other's not so much... Let me say, this for me, was up there with the best!
Point of Return focuses on Olivia Masters and Daemon Knight. Both whom grew up in the Biker world and were determined to leave it together as soon as they were old enough. The daughter of the President, Olivia leaves Jasper Bay following a incident that leaves her shot and her mother dead. Daemon stays and becomes VP of the club.
Five years later and Olivia has returned to Jasper Bay but wants nothing to do with the Nordic Lords, in fact she starts a relationship with Travis a local deputy and is resolute in her decision to make her own path in life. However, life has a habit of surprising you and she soon finds herself in Daemon's path and in turn her father Bull's and the club.
I really don't want to say more about the story than that as it twists and turns and throws up a lot of surprises throughout. Olivia is a great character. Unlike a lot of female characters in this genre she is strong and knows her own mind. What she does know is that she still loves Daemon but cannot and will not involve herself in that lifestyle anymore.
Daemon is a typical alpha biker. He deeply loves Olivia and believes they are destined to be together, but his loyalty to the club is unwavering and this conflicts with his feelings towards Olivia. They share a real chemistry and you will honestly want them to sort out their shit from pretty early on in the book.
There are a whole load of various characters in this book and the author does a really good job of incorporating the whole back story (which is pivotal in the storyline) as well as setting them up for future books. The villains are bad and there is violence, blood, guns and a good amount of steam (without it being over the top) - my perfect MC book!!
I loved the ending, it left you ready for book 2 but without a cliffy that leaves you frustrated. This is a well thought out story with great characters and everything you expect from this genre. I look forward to the sequel and have a feeling it may well be about a certain other Knight.
