  • Excellent

    Really enjoyed this book! This is the second in the Deacons of Bourbon Street series and in my opinion, this series really should be read in order to truly understand everything that is going on. This book centers around Travis Sinclair or Cash to the brothers. He's not at all happy about being back in NOLA and is ready to leave the city and memories behind him. Unfortunately his business here isn't quite finished and he can't leave until it is. Getting rid of the tenant in a building he inherited is his first priority, too bad she is one sexy little pixie that really does it for him. Billie Taylor has had it with domineering men. So why the hell is she so attracted to Travis? She should be running hard and fast in the opposite direction. In this battle of wills can anyone really win? Maybe both of them? This is very well written and really moves the story along. I'm definitely a fan of Travis! This is a book and series I would recommend.

  • Fun, sexy and quick read

    The 2nd installment of the Deacons of Bourbon Street is a fun, sexy and quick read. This book can be read as a stand alone but I would recommend reading the first book in the series so you know about the characters going into this book. Travis "Cash" Sinclair left Bourbon Street of NOLA behind years ago and never looked back. When the president of the Deacons sent him away from the only "family" he had ever known Cash vowed he would never come back. But after the president dies in a motorcycle accident, Cash comes home to say his good-byes. What was supposed to be just a quick stay turns into weeks after her learns that his "brothers" and him have been willed their old club house. Cash wants to sell the property as quickly as possible and head back home, he isn't a biker anymore, now he is a successful business man who wears suits instead of leather. Things change however after Cash goes to the old club house to check things out. Surprise doesn't even begin to describe what he feels when he see that the old club house has been turned into a funky art gallery, but the biggest surprise of all is the bohemian beauty who runs the gallery. Billie Taylor ended up in NOLA after fleeing a bad marriage. She always dreamed of living in NOLA amidst the bright buildings, colorful array of people and the legends. Now running an eclectic and funky art gallery on Bourbon Street, Billie is living the life of her dreams, that is until Travis "Cash" Sinclair struts into her gallery. Cash is sexy, bossy and one of the original bikers of the Deacons of Bourbon Street. When Billie finds out he is also her new landlord and he plans on selling the gallery Billie is stunned, but not as much as when he announces he is also her new roommate while he is in town. Billie refuses to give up her gallery without a fight but is her gallery the only thing she may loose with a man like Cash. Cash and Billie's characters were explosive together which made for a very enjoyable book and addition to the series. I received an eARC copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley for my honest review and opinion. All ratings and opinions stated are my own.

  • Enjoyable addition to the series

    3.5 Stars What happens when a hot biker with abandonment and commitment issues meets a hippie who challenges him in every way but dislikes everything he stands for? Well, a lot of heat, for one. Travis “Cash” Sinclair is back in New Orleans for the funeral of Priest, the president of the Deacons of Bourbon Street but he's back temporarily. The Deacons were Travis's family and Priest was like a father to him until ten years earlier when he was exiled from the club along with three of his club brothers. Since then, he's channeled his skills into a legitimate, successful business as a security consultant and he does not plan to jeopardize all that he's built by participating in a half-cocked plan to avenge Priest's death. Unfortunately, his refusal to take part in the payback plans is something his brothers would not take lying down so he has to play ball for the meantime while trying to figure a way out and while he's stuck in New Orleans, he's very happy to be distracted by hippie artist, Billie Taylor. Originally from Australia, Billie has always loved New Orleans and its rich history and culture so when her marriage went south, she packed up and headed there. New Orleans gave her the opportunity to explore her artistic side and she enjoys showing and selling other artists' works in her gallery but now that the Deacons are back, the future of her gallery is on the line, especially if Travis has his way. To further complicate things, every nerve in her body stands at attention every time Travis is near but Billie has had her fill of possessive, controlling men. She'll take the smoking hot sex but she'll pass on everything else. I have been very excited about this series especially because it's a collaboration among several authors. I enjoyed Make You Burn, so I was really looking forward to Fire Me Up. Fire Me Up continues the story on the search for priest's killer; shows a different perceptive on the relationship among the club brothers; and gives insight into the complicated relationships Travis has with both Priest and his mother and his abandonment and commitment issues. However, I consider it to be MC-lite because the story was more about Travis and Billie's relationship and less about the MC. The story was enjoyable, the sexual chemistry between Travis and Billie was hot and the character development was really great because there was a lot of story to their pasts. Travis started out rough but blunt and likable but his treatment of Billie soured me on him. While I completely understand that his behavior is typical of the MC world, his indecision about whether to stay with the Deacons or return to his real life made his behavior even worse. Billie was sweet and soft but in spite of her much touted desire for independence, she was willing to let him walk over her, which made her seem a little weak. Thankfully at the end her backbone made an appearance. I enjoyed reading Fire Me Up and I'm very interested in the rest of the brothers and the conclusion to the murder mystery so I definitely will be reading the rest of the series.

  • Tempers flare, sparks fly and emotions run high...

    3.5 stars The Deacons of Bourbon MC haven’t been an active MC for 10 years. Priest, their former leader dies and suddenly Travis, as a former Deacons member, is summoned back to New Orleans for Priest’s funeral. Travis has his own security business, he worked hard to turn his life around and isn't at all eager to face his past and the Deacons. In New Orleans, he finds out that the old club house is now an art gallery and the quick stay he planned won't be possible because there's Priests will and strange circumstances surrounding his death. Billie is the current tenant, owner of the art gallery, she's a kind, bohemian, free spirit girl with a positive vibe. She lives above the gallery, loves the french quarter, she's completely passionate about art and tries to help artists assisting them in exposing their work. Like most badass bikers, Travis hates when things don't go as he planned so when he enters the art gallery, he acts like an arrogant bastard because he just wants to sell everything and get back to his life. To him, Billie is just another complication and he shouldn't notice how hot she is. Billie isn't very happy with the situation too, especially because she feels she found the place where she belongs and doesn't want to give up her space, the french quarter and her independence. She is even less thrilled by the fact that Travis gets under her skin without even trying. Tempers flare, sparks fly and emotions run high... I really enjoyed the second book in the Deacons series. It was easy to like Travis and Billie and I really enjoyed their story but I wanted a little more development about the unanswered questions surrounding their exile and Priest's death. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

  • A good continuation to the series

    This is the second in the Deacons of Bourbon Street series and is the story of Travis "Cash" and Billie. While I really enjoyed the first in the series (Ajax and Sophie's story), I found that Travis and Billie had a weaker connection for me in this one. Travis's character alternates between rough to sweet and back again, and I had difficulty getting a fix on him. Still, they had some chemistry and there are some steamy love scenes between the two. Outside of the romance, there is the mystery of Sophie's dad's death that is connecting the stories together and the plot advances in this one as we find out more details about Priest's death. This is a standalone story and there is enough detail that a reader can jump right in with this one, though I highly recommend reading Make You Burn which introduces all the characters. 3 stars, and looking forward to the next one!
