    Great start to new series!

    Coming home can be difficult, but coming home after losing someone important is even harder. Ajax is home but he's grieving the loss of his mentor and surrogate father Priest. He still hasn't been able to figure out why he and his brothers were exiled a decade ago and now he's tasked with calling his brothers home. Things have changed though, both in his city and family. The biggest noticeable change is Sophie Lombard, the daughter of the man he respects most. The attraction between Sophie and Ajax was instant and undeniable. It seemed like even before they'd exchanged names they were getting off with each other. I like how the insta-lust between them was not confused for insta-love on either of their parts. I really liked Sophie. My heart hurt for her knowing she'd lost her only family. I also hurt when she realized her father whom she'd sacrificed so much for hadn't cared enough to do the same. It was certainly jarring. I liked Sophie and her wits. She was smart and mostly level headed. She was reliable and responsible for someone so young. She also had a wild streak. Ajax was an interesting character. I liked him, sometimes. Other times I felt like he was too overbearing and rude. Ajax might have been short on words and emotions but the ones he shared and showed carried a lot of weight. I also felt horrible for him when I learned how he came to be a Deacon. I loved Ajax's loyalty and commitment to family, even if he knew pursuing Sophie broke the rules. Once he made Sophie his, she was his concern, even if she didn't like it. I think I liked watching Sophie and Ajax butt heads as much as I did seeing them get along. I was a little concerned about how blase they were regarding Priest's death especially when they realized it might not have been an accident. I don't feel like it was given the attention it deserved and when you have characters like Sophie and Ajax who have strong connections to the deceased, it felt wrong. I do feel like the murder mystery was pushed aside and Sophie and Ajax's bedroom romps took center stage. Now I'm not complaining because they were hot, but I would've liked the story and sex to be balanced. However since there are more books coming, I'm hoping that there will be more about finding the truth. As it is, I'm really excited to see Megan Crane writing something new and unfamiliar. It's definitely the hottest book of hers I've ever read. I like that she's pushing her boundaries. Overall, this book was a great introduction to a new story and characters and a great way to start off a new series. I'm already eagerly looking forward to the next book.

    Interesting read

    I'm really on the fence about this one. The good - heat level is blistering, the chemistry between Ajax and Sophie is off the charts, the story was interesting enough to peak my interest. The bad - Ajax and 3 others were exiled 10 years ago, why I still don't understand, yet he walks back in like he was never gone?? I don't know much about the inner workings of MC's but this seemed a bit unbelievable. So the story left me with tons of questions which I can only hope are answered in future books and since it was good enough to grab my interest I will read the next in the series to see if the story starts to come together.

    Absolutely amazing

    My first time reading this author's work and I can say from the bottom of my heart I will be reading more from her I liked her slow and steady pace of the MC world pus the softer side of it was even better. The way she wrote the different POV were they blended into each other was really great and worked extremely well for this story. It was like 2 minds coming together as 1 was kinda magical. MUST READ story!!! I really liked this MC passion sexual filled story. I so cannot wait for more of this series well here's to me hoping that their is more to this series. ***I received this story for free in exchange for an honest review, see more of my review @ Whispered Thoughts ***

    Make me wanna be a biker chick!

    Sons of Anarchy fans! come and get your big bad biker fix. This book just romanticizes motorcycle clubs and bikers so well, even the dark and dangerous ones like Ajax and Sophie is the perfect biker bitch. Born and raised in a motorcycle club she knows the ins and outs; when to speak and when not to, body language and all the "etiquettes" But she's not prepared for the death of her father, Priest, the president of the Deacons of Bourbon Street or the return from exile of 4 of the top full patch members. She is especially not prepared for Ajax the VP, who just steps in and takes over and is definitely not prepared for the feelings he arouses within her. Ajax is devastated by the death of the man who was like a father to him. Being exiled for 10 years has made no difference to his loyalties nor his priorities as far as the Deacons go. But Sophie is a game changer and one he didn't see coming. His instincts to protect her from the harsh reality of life has taken him by surprise and at the same time he knows that something is not right with the way her father died. He must revive the Deacons and make them see the truth of the matter, and with Sophie by his side, just might make it a whole lot easier for the both of them to get through the coming storm.

    Sexy, gritty and intense!

    This sizzling story is the first of four in a series being written by different authors, all centering on the Deacons of Bourbon Street Motorcycle Club. Though each can be read as a standalone novel, this one is the first of the series and introduces the characters and the plot that will carry through the stories. The basic premise is that the leader of the Deacons, Priest, has died. As a result, the four men he trusted more than any other, men that were exiled 10 years ago when things went awry, have returned. At the head of the pack is Ajax, the VP of the club and Priest's former right hand man. He's now got the responsibility of reviving the club - something Priest's grown up daughter Sophie is less than thrilled about. She runs the bar owned by her father, and has always been on the periphery of club business. Though raised to understand the rules, she was kept away from the gritty parts and in the last several years the club had faded away into irrelevance. But Ajax's return has changed everything. Suddenly the life she thought she always hated is right back in her face again - and this time with sexy, sinful Ajax making a claim, on her. Is she going to go along for the ride of her life, or get out while the getting is good? I could not put this story down once I started it. It's definitely a gritty look at the life inside a motorcycle club, with its politics, violence and sex. Ajax is the ultimate alpha male in this one - hard, confident, possessive. He straddles the line between a hero and an anti-hero, making no apologies for the life he has lived and the life he wants back now that he's returned to New Orleans. He's also one of the sexier heroes I've read, making it very clear to Sophie that he wants her, and only her. Unlike other bikers who might have a mistress or two on the side, he's a one woman man, and that woman is Sophie. Sophie on the other hand, isn't overly impressed with Ajax. She finds him arrogant and pushy. She's a strong and independent woman who speaks her mind and does what she likes. But, when the death of her father threatens to overwhelm her, Ajax reveals his softer side, offering her some comfort and the assurance that he will stand by her and give her what she needs. Now granted, in Ajax's mind a lot of this revolves around sexual satisfaction, but Sophie soon finds that he is becoming a man that she can't resist. The sex scenes in this story are super hot. The chemistry between Ajax and Sophie is there right from the start (indeed Sophie was attracted to Ajax long before, when she was a teenager and he was her dad's second in command). Now that's she's all grown up, Ajax at first thinks of her as forbidden fruit, the daughter of his one time mentor. But his attraction to her leads him down the path of no return, and it's one that Sophie treads willingly with him, even though she knows she might be burned in the process. I really liked the setting of the story, and the author does a great job of revealing the sultry and seedy side of the Big Easy. You can feel the sweltering heat, the decay, the façade of gentility over the reality of the post Katrina streets. New Orleans famed French Quarter with its tourists looking for the decadent nightlife is easily pictured and the bar Sophie runs on Bourbon Street is part of that image. The four men of the series, Ajax, Cash, Blue and Micah have an uneasy relationship as the heirs to the Deacon's club - they might have been happier left alone but they have a responsibility that they can't ignore, or at the least that Ajax won't let them ignore. There's also a mystery afoot (because Priest's death is a little too convenient) and that's something I expect will be a key subplot through the series. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of these, they are sure to be fun rides! 5 stars for this enthralling, sexy tale.
