Review of Fire Me Up (The Deacons of Bourbon Street # 2) by Rachael Johns

Fire Me Up

Fire Me Up!

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Length (Est.): 190 pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

Can a scorching affair with a bohemian beauty tame a motorcycle man with a dark side? Rachael Johns takes the wheel in the sexy series co-written with Megan Crane, Jackie Ashenden, and Maisey Yates.

Travis “Cash” Sinclair values only two things from his days with the Deacons of Bourbon Street: his prized Harley Davidson and the man who gave it to him. But now Priest Lombard is gone, and Cash has inherited the Deacons’ clubhouse—not to mentions its unexpected tenant. She’s exactly the type of woman he tries to avoid: all incense and art, with a sharp tongue that promises trouble. So why does Cash want to push aside those flowing skirts and lose himself between her legs?

Billie Taylor fled a bad marriage to start a new life among the grit and glamour of the French Quarter. She refuses to let another man distract her from her dreams, especially an outlaw biker with nothing to offer except hot sex and an eviction notice. Cash is dangerous, with an untamed streak he tries desperately to conceal. He drives Billie wild, sending her too close to the edge for her own good. And she won’t fall under his spell—or into his bed—without a fight.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

Mindy’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Random House Publishing Group – Loveswept in exchange for an honest review*

Travis “Cash” Sinclair is not excited about being back in New Orleans. With the President of the Deacons of Bourbon Street gone he has inherited the clubhouse with his brothers. Travis has a lot of anger towards the club and does not want to have anything else to do with them.  His only goal is to sale the property and then go back to where he came from. But first he must help solve the one burning question, what happened to Priest and was it murder? What he does not expect is the tenant that occupies his property to cause his body to awaken.

Billie Taylor fled a bad marriage in hopes of starting a new life in New Orleans. Living in the French Quarter is a dream for her. She loves the culture and atmosphere. When an outlaw biker shows up to look at his newly acquired property she stands her ground and will not let him push her around.  Being fearful that the property will be sold and she will have to start over really weighs on her. Trying to stand your ground is hard when your body has different wants than your brain.

After reading the first book in the series Make You Burn I was excited to maybe get some of the answers I was looking for. Did I get them? Not really. I learned a little more but not enough to satisfy my need for answers. However, Travis is a great hero for this book. He is a bad ass biker but still has a soft side to him. The chemistry between him and Billie was instant and entertaining. I think I liked it more when they were kind of mad at each other. It would bring out the strong side of Billie.

This seems to be a calibration of four authors for this series. This is a great series but seems to be lacking something for me that I cannot put my finger on just yet. With that being said I am going to continue to read this series just for the fact that it is a great storyline but I really hope I do not have to wait until the end of book four to find out what really happened to Priest. Moving on to Hold Me Down (The Deacons of Bourbon Street #3).

My Favorite Moment: I really enjoyed when he was trying to push her away because he thought he was protecting her. The differences in them is entertaining.
