Stand alone series
intriguing and captivating
NIX is the fourth instalment in Kelly Gendron’s contemporary, adult DARING THE KANE BROTHERS erotic, romance series focusing on the Kane siblings. This is twenty-nine, year old computer programmer / single father Nickel ‘Nix’ Kane, and twenty-six year old, travel agent Payton Tucker’s story line. NIX can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous instalments is revealed where necessary. Daring the Kane Brothers is a spin-off from the author's Breaking the Declan Brothers series.
Told from dual first person perspectives (Nix and Payton) NIX follows the building relationship between computer programmer / single father Nickel ‘Nix’ Kane, and travel agent Payton Tucker. Nix Kane can’t keep his eyes off of his brother’s new client, and while her car is in the shop for repairs, Nix offers Payton Tucker a ride to work but not before they have to make a detour for his six year old daughter Becca. Refusing to get swayed by Nickel ‘Nix’ Kane’s charm, Payton Tucker all but disappears from our hero’s life only for Nix to discover Payton has been volunteering for Becca’s upcoming dance recital. The push and pull of attraction keeps Nix circling within Payton’s orbit but all is not well in Nix’s well ordered life. What ensues is the slow building relationship between Nix and Payton, and the potential fall-out when the truth about Payton’s past is revealed.
Nix Kane is a single father whose former lover walked out of his and Becca’s life years before but a string of recent break-ins and assaults against our story line hero have Nix believing his past is searching for something important. Payton Tucker is a woman grieving the loss of her best friend but her latest assignment finds Payton battling between head and heart knowing that if she fails, she fails everyone she loves
The relationship between Nix and Payton is predicated upon several lies including the who, what, where and why of Payton’s appearance in the lives of Nix and his daughter Becca. Payton Tucker is a woman on a mission, a mission to get in and get out without falling in love. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text.
There is a large ensemble cast of colorful secondary and supporting characters including Token and Harley #1: Steele Kane #2; Crash and Maggie #3; Crash’s employee Jaggs; their sister Lulu; and their mother Olivia Kane.
NIX is a story of family and friendship; secrets and lies; heart break and revelations; acceptance and love. The premise is intriguing and captivating but the guilty party was easily deduced; the characters are energetic and dynamic; the romance is passionate and seductive but I struggled with some issues of questionable consent, aggression and possible sexual assault, that in the age of #metoo, if the situation were reversed, some readers would be complaining about the actions of a particular story line character.
