    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

    Old friendships and new connections

    HOLD ME DOWN is an engaging story of old friendships, shared betrayals, split loyalties and new love and continues a wonderful collaboration among four authors. I really love the continuity of the overall arc of the story, even as each book features a distinct and unique character, as well as how the feel of New Orleans remains the same from book to book: the seediness of Bourbon Street, busy streets filled with different kinds of people - from tourists to con artists- and the coarse and rough world of testosterone-filled bikers. Alice Day has always wanted a place to belong, a family to call her own and for a time she had that with the Deacons, until they abandoned her and she found a new family in their rival MC, the Graveyard Ministry. The Deacons are back after ten years away and Alice is now considered a traitor and only Blue's claim on her as his property protects her from the retribution that would otherwise be aimed at her. Despite his blue-blooded roots, Blue considers the Deacons his real family and he's back in New Orleans with his club brothers to unravel the mystery surrounding the death of their President, Priest. He can't help remembering the girl who was his best friend but he's not quite prepared for the woman she has become, his attraction to her and the complications her defection to a rival MC create. Bourbon Street is about to heat up and Blue finds himself torn between loyalty to his brothers and the woman who has had a tight grip on his soul for the last ten years. Blue is my favorite male in the series so far. He was broody, dark and thoroughly alpha but he was also honorable, loyal and always chose to do the right thing without thinking about the cost to him. These qualities made him just the perfect person for Alice to have in her corner, especially as she found herself caught between two MCs. MC romances by their very nature are crude and I find that keeping that before me helps deal with some of the over the top macho behavior that would ordinarily have me seeing red. And Blue definitely was as macho and high-handed as can be quite a few times, but Alice was every bit as fiery as her red hair suggested and very much his match. I loved their chemistry and their battle for control made for some very interesting reading. The mystery surrounding Priest's death, which had stalled in the previous book, suddenly picks up steam here and there are revelations that pit MC against MC and it's up to Alice and Blue to calm an already volatile situation. I have enjoyed this series so far and I know that each book can be read as a stand alone, but the stories of all the Deacons are so intertwined that reading them in order actually helps to understand the characters and what drives them, fill in the blanks about their pasts and get a peek into what they want for the future.
