Phoenix "Nix" Knight thought pulling his club out of the illegal shit his pops got them into was difficult. Until he meets Kadence. Kadence Turner has no business lusting over a student's father, especially the president of the Knights Rebels MC. Nix is crass, obnoxious, and dangerously sexy, and for some reason, Kadence can't seem to hate him for it. The bossy biker breaks down her defenses, but unlike the old Kadence, the woman she is today won't give in without a fight. The tension is undeniable, the attraction fierce. A man that wants what he wants and a woman that will fight him every step of the way.
This audiobook contains mature themes.

I live in the outback Australia and so love to listen to a good raunchy kickass story where the female is tall strong and in total control.
Incandescent is an ok story, the narrators did a great job telling the story, always makes a story enjoyable if the reader's are great readers. Incandescent is a tame MC story, great sex scenes, bossy alpha bloke with a head strong woman. The story line was a bit predicable, like I said an OK story cheers
"Decent Light Hearted MC ~ Worth The Listen!"
After listening to Hetch by River Savage, I was ready to dive into her MC series, Knights Rebels, and thought book one was great. It wasn't as dark, intense or suspenseful as other MC's I've listened too, but the sexy, dirty talking, alpha biker more than made up for it. The chemistry between the H/h was hot! Kadence was sassy, stubborn, and tried to deny her attraction to her student's father Nix, but who could resist a overly confident, dominate male who won't take no for answer. In addition to all sexual tension, and foreplay, there's lots of drama, angst and minor violence.
My only complaint would be the writing style, it wasn’t always smooth. Savage can write a really good scene, but throughout the story a new scene would abruptly start and you would have to process the previous scene ended. I felt the transition between the scenes could have been smoother; however, this was a minor annoyance for me, and I enjoyed the overall plot and thought both the main and secondary characters were well developed. Not to mention all the steamy erotic scenes!!!
I liked both Joe Arden and Lidia Dornet's performances. Joe did an excellent job portraying Nix's dominate dirty talking personality.
This is definitely a series I want to add to my collection of MC stories for variety, and balance. Well worth the time, credit or sale.
"A SEXY, SASSY ROMANCE & A DIRTY TALKING ALPHA HERO"
When the hot 37 yr old President of the Knight's Rebels MC walks into his son Zayden's classroom, summoned there by his Teacher, Phoenix (Nix) doesn't expect to be blown away by the feisty, fierce and beautiful Kadence. Kadence was expecting Zaden's Mother to turn up not the tall, leather-clad, sexy, bossy Nix whose mere presence sent her dormant libido straight into overdrive. And it wasn't long before his demanding Alpha attitude, his dirty talk, his smart sassy and gifted mouth and his relentless pursuit finally had her beneath/on top/alongside/in front... etc., of him.
It's an instant lust, instant chemistry and instant everything else as the 'hardass' biker was actually a possessive, bossy pussycat when it came to Kadence and his son which made for a sweet romance but not necessarily a tough gritty biker one. There was plenty of angst and drama with the sub plots of turf wars, a delusional ex wife, a vicious ex fiancé, a neglected 11 yr old boy and a kidnapping that had bloody and long lasting consequences. There's plenty of passion and raunchy sex, the Knight's Rebels MC is a clean Club.... no drugs, no treating the women badly etc and they look out for the wellbeing of the town's citizens and the MC members all seem very likeable characters.
I really enjoyed this listen, yes it was a bit of a 'watered down' MC biker story with caring characters and a loving romance but the kidnapping put a heartbreaking and bloody twist to the dual POV story and I had no issues with the dual narration.
Worth a credit? Yes, there was fun, a hot Alpha Hero, a Heroine with attitude who overcame a bad history which left her with scars and an action-packed story whether it was filled with sex, drama, tension or heartache.
"Great story but a bit too fluff for an MC book"
In all honesty I would give this book a 3.5
In my opinion these is something about MC books that have a bit of bad and dark that makes the men so darn irresistible.... This book is not what I expected.
Nix is the president of a "reformed" MC club. Yep... The club is all legit. One of the things I found outrageous was Nix walking around opening talking bout club business... It just didn't fit. Anyway beside this little flaw he is a dominant male who goes after what he wants. He was Kadence. Kadence is a teacher and so in over her head when she falls hard for the parent of one of her students. In the end it all works out but its the journey there that make this story interesting. There is fighting, laughing, crying and hot hot times that will keep any romance lover entertained. As for narrators, they both did a good job. I might try them if I come across another of their narrations but they are not one of my go to people.
Addictive. Phenomenal. Hands-down a must read!
This audiobook pulled me right in from the second it started and held me captive all through the very last word. From the amazing storyline to the fantastic narrators, this audiobook was perfect.
Nix was a deliciously protective alpha male that had me swooning through and through. I LOVED Kadance's character because she managed to remain true to herself even while being introduced to the MC lifestyle, which let's be honest, it can derail anyone. I also liked that she didn't just give into Nix. She made him work for it and it was very fun seeing him go after her. He loved a good chance and Kadance made it worth every minute.
The suspenseful aspect of the story was gripping and a true page-turner. River Savage's writing style is captivating and hearing the story brought to life by these amazing narrators was epic.
A true must-read book that you need to pick up if you're in the mood for angst, action, drama, suspense, and some seriously hot scenes! FIVE STARS!
"Great Start to the series"
I am a big fan of this series. Nix and Kadence's story is my favorite. It was funny, sexy, and entertaining
"Nix and Kadence!"
Absolutely loved this book! Nix is one hot as hell biker who will melt your panties! Kadence is Nix's sons' teacher and when a conference is needed and Nix shows up, she is in for a treat! Their story is amazing and hot as hell!
Nico is hot. The story does pick up after a few chapters. It starts out with sex, sex and more sex. The story begins in the middle of the book. It's okay ... not my favorite listen ... I did not want to finish in one sitting.... I kept putting it aside for a better read. Worth a sale.
This is a new author for me. I love MC books. This one was not gritty, but the hotness level is scorching! I also loved the storyline, Phoenix "Nix" & Kadence! Their banter is fun & they have their own issues. Also, Kadence is a strong woman, who may have some imperfections, which you don't see a lot of, in a heroine! I can't wait to move onto the next book...starting now!
"Story might be ok on X 4"
I don't like to give negative reviews but this book might be best read and not listened to. Female narrator can't seem to keep the male and female leads straight. I'll be avoiding future listens.
"Pretty good start to the series :)"
This was a pretty good story. I liked Kadence and Nix and enjoyed seeing them get together, especially since Kadence is a feisty heroine that takes no crap from Nix and Nix is a slightly overbearing, bossy alpha male who won't take no for an answer. Their interactions were sometimes fun and often hot and always interesting. This is the first book I've read by this author (according to Goodreads it's her first book) and based off this I'm likely to try more of her work in the future.
Kadence is a teacher at an elementary school. She lives with her best friend, Holly and her parents live out of town but close. Kadence was hurt in a fire because of some crap her fiancee (who is now an Ex) was in to and she still carries the scars from that. She's had a hard time trusting and opening up to a man since then.
Nix is the president of the Knights Rebels MC. The MC had been started by his father and friends but got into illegal crap that brought a lot of misery. Nix led the MC into being legit, opening businesses and being part of the community. The only thing they do that's outside of the law is make sure no drugs come in to town. Nix is the father of Zayden (aka Z) who is in Kadence's class. Nix and his wife are divorced and he wants nothing to do with her past parenting Z.
Kadence had to break up a fight between Z and another boy in class and both their parents had to be called in. She called Z's mom so was surprised to find Nix arriving late, annoyed because his ex had just called him 5 minutes before to tell him about the meeting. When Nix walks into the classroom and Kadence sees him she's wowed but thinks that Nix is trouble just waiting to happen and determined to resist him no matter what. Kadence proves she has a backbone and that just turns Nix on as he likes women with spirit. They split ways but Nix has a hard time forgetting Kadence and she has a hard time forgetting him as well. They happen to meet again at a community fair where the MC is volunteering and sparks fly again. Kadence does a good job at fending off Nix but that just seems to get her more firmly embedded under his skin so he needs a taste. When they run in to each other the next time, Kadence is on a (rather boring) date who Nix proceeds to chase off. More sparks fly and Kadence shows she's not afraid to express her displeasure with Nix's actions in a very forceful way. Regardless of this, they do end up going home together for a night of fiery passion....which Kadence sneaks out on before morning, pissing Nix all the hell off.
Nix and Kadence both feel a connection to each other, being together feels natural. Nix never thought to get married again and isn't sure if he wants to but he finds he can't forget Kadence and can't get interested in other women. Kadence is scared of the connection between them and opening up to someone so she tries to keep Nix at arms length, using her place as Z's teacher as an excuse for them not to get involved...not that Nix lets that work for long. Things start out a bit tumultuous for the couple but things do steady out (eventually) and they both stop fighting it and come together. There are other issues that keep them busy even as they're trying to figure their new situation out. Kadence's Ex shows up in town and he has ties to a drug kingpin and is out to cause trouble for the MC. Also, Nix's Ex-wife is a problem and Z is having issues that need to be dealt with as well. Nix and Kadence deal with the drama and some unexpected danger and some out stronger in the end and ready to start their HEA.
I found this story to be very enjoyable. I liked the characters and the interactions between them. The story was pretty good and worked for me but what really kept me engaged was the unfolding relationship between Nix and Kadence. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. I'd recommend this book. :)
* note - There were 2 narrators, a female for the parts from Kadence's PoV and male for the parts from Nix's PoV. Both narrators did a very good job.
