    Violence towards women

    Look I get the alpha male dangerous biker thing with the uncontrollable temper. But here's the deal in chapter two, your hero tries to suffocate the heroine. And I'm supposed to want them to be together? Hell no. Violence towards a partner is not attractive and not a joke and yet it feels like it was treated that way. Save yourself money and buy a better book.

    Excellent

    I found this fourth installment of the Deacons of Bourbon Street quite entertaining. Though I must say I can't see a man like "Blue" being celibate for a ten years but since that's a very small part of the story I'll put that aside. The real core of the story is the relationship between Alice "Red" Day and Leon "Blue" Delacroix. Ten years ago they were best friends. Up until the day Blue leaves New Orleans without a word. Now he's back but nothing is the way it was. His old motorcycle club is in ruins and Alice belongs to a rival club. Can they ever find their way back to each other with these obstacles in the way?? I would recommend this one.

    SIZZLING!!!

    Fantastic MC romance! This is a great story packed with abandonment issues and because of that, traitor accusations, a friends to lovers romance, tough bikers and the women who love them. The love between Blue and Red is not without its potholes in the road but he fights as hard as he can to prove to her that he'll never leave her again. Is he willing to betray the MC he's given his life to? I look forward to reading more from this author in the future. Received a copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed is my own.

    Great addition to the series!

    Hold Me Down is book #3 in the Deacons of Bourbon Street series. Each book in this series is written by different authors which can make the books hit or miss sometimes. I found this book however to be just as well written as all of Ms. Ashenden’s books. So if you are a fan of her work I think you will like this book as well. Each book in this series can be read as a standalone but like most series, you will get more out of the book if you have read the previous two installments since they have reoccurring characters in each book. Blue has returned home years after suddenly leaving his club and his best friend Alice (Red) behind without a word. He is now back to help his club brothers hunt down the people who killed their president. One night while discussing possible candidates Blue is mesmerized by an attractive Red head he sees at the bar. When he goes to make his moved he is stunned when the woman turns out to be his best friend from years ago. Alice is now gorgeous, mouthy and property of the rival club suspected of killing their president. Red is surprised and pissed to see Blue back in town. She is still hurt and upset at his betrayal of leaving her unexpectedly when he promised to always be there for her. After he skipped town the club fell apart leaving Red and her father in the wake trying to keep their heads afloat. When the Graveyard Ministry stepped up to help them out after the Deacon’s bailed she swore her loyalty to their club even though she had always been a Deacon. Now that Blue is back in town she feels her loyalty being pulled in two different directions. Does she stand by her childhood friend and the man that ripped her heart out when he left or does she stand with her new family, the ones who have been there for her when she needed them most. This was an exciting and suspenseful story of second chances and learning to love and trust again. I received an eARC of this book compliments of the publisher in exchange for my honest review and opinion. All ratings and opinions stated are my own

    Sexy and intense third story in the series!

    This is the third story in a series of four books told by four different authors, each one to date a sexy and intense read and this one is no exception! I really enjoyed this continuation to the series. First off, I have to say that the secondary character of Ajax, whose book is the first in the series, comes off pretty much the same as he did in his own story - he's a very tough and brutish character, and I'm impressed that Jackie was able to capture that same sense of him as in Megan's book. Similarly the setting of New Orleans and the overall feel of the book is the same, so I think all the authors have done a great job of keeping that thread of continuity. The suspense plot gets a bit further on, though not everything is revealed yet. But we do get a little more of the big picture, the rivalry between the Ministry and the Deacons coming to a head in this story. I thought the portrayal of the Ministry club, and in particular the president Blade was quite interesting. It's not quite so black and white as to who are the good guys and who are the bad guys when it comes to dealing with these two motorcycle clubs. Blade came across as a fairly decent guy (for an MC president) and his concern for Alice is what gives her a guilty complex when it comes to dealing with the Deacons again. He was a really compelling character and I don't mind admitting that I'd like to see him get a spin off book. Blue and Alice have a pretty complicated history. As teenagers, Blue's dad and Alice's mom were involved in an affair that wrecked both families, but resulted in the strong friendship between the two teens despite the screwed up family dynamics. Though Alice had a crush on Blue then, it was not returned and it's only now, ten years later, that he can see what a beautiful, strong and courageous woman she is. Though Blue wishes she hadn't made the choice to join the Ministry, he can understand her desire for a family and needing somewhere to belong. As it turns out though, he soon realizes that he wants her all to himself and the scorching chemistry between them, from the first moment they meet again as adults, ensures some hot and steamy scenes as Blue convinces Alice that he's her only chance at protection. Blue comes across as the definite alpha male here, possessive and somewhat controlling, though he does come to realize that he's going to have to give Alice the choice eventually of whether she's going to stay with him or be loyal to Blade and the Ministry. Alice is a strong character too, who has made the choices required to survive. Her attraction to Blue hasn't disappeared despite his long absence, and it frustrates her to feel that way, as she is also very angry at him for leaving. This makes their sex scenes pretty passionate as those strong emotions overflow into the bedroom. If I had one complaint, it would be that I would have liked to see a bit more tenderness between them. There isn't a lot of romance, it's mostly just hot sex and while they feel that sense of rightness together, it doesn't translate into any sweetness. All in all though, I thought the story flowed well, had some good plot advancement, and gave us a happy ending for Blue and Alice while leaving some open ended questions for the last book in the series. 4 stars.
