Book Length (Est.): 197 pages
Meet the Deacons of Bourbon Street, bad boy bikers who are hell on wheels—and heaven between the sheets. Megan Crane revs up an irresistible new series co-written with Rachael Johns, Jackie Ashenden, and Maisey Yates.
Sean “Ajax” Harding’s oaths are inked into his skin. Once second-in-command of the Deacons of Bourbon Street motorcycle club, he left New Orleans to protect the brotherhood, and only the death of his beloved mentor, Priest Lombard, could lure him back. Walking into the old hangout gives him a familiar thrill—especially when he gets an eyeful of the bar’s delectable new owner. A wild ride with her is just the welcome Ajax needs. Then he realizes that she’s Priest’s daughter, all grown up and totally off limits.
Sophie Lombard loved her father, not his lifestyle. She’s done with bikers . . . until Ajax roars into town—arrogant, tough, and sexy as ever. And although he treats her like the Catholic schoolgirl he once knew, Sophie’s daydreams tend to revolve around sin. With the very real possibility of heartbreak looming, Sophie knows better than to get too close to an outlaw. But every touch from Ajax is steamier than the Louisiana bayou—and heat like this may just be worth getting burned.

When her father dies she finally gets to be herself. That is until the VP strolls in and stakes his claim. Sophie wants nothing to do with the club and really wants nothing to do with Ajax. Her body and her brain have different opinions on how she should handle him.
I have read a lot of MC books over the past few months and for some reason I could not connect with these characters at all. I am not sure if it was the storyline itself or the fact that I just needed more. I think I have more questions than answers at this point. What happened with Priest and what was going on before his accident? Why did Ajax have to leave for so long? I felt that I needed more of the build up to what happened and what is going to happen. Why are all of the club members gone? And why did the end of the book jump so far ahead?
With that being said the chemistry between Ajax and Sophie is hot but not too convincing for me. Ajax likes to have control and Sophie has no problem handing that over in the bedroom but when in public her mouth tends to get her in trouble. This did make me laugh frequently.
Maybe just maybe the second book in the series Fire Me Up will give me all the answers that I am seeking.
My Favorite Moment: I really did enjoy when Ajax seen Sophie for the first time and realized who she was.
