4 a good ending to a good series stars!
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley/Loveswept for my honest review.
This is the last book in the Deacons of Bourbon Street series. So a lot of things are to come to a head in this book. In this book is Prince’s story, he left the Deacons when told by Priest and went on to bigger and better things. Micah aka Prince has become a successful business man and has left the Deacons in the past or so he thought. Priest is killed and Ajax calls everyone back to avenge his death. Since Micah owes a debt to the club he comes back to avenge Priest however in previous books you can tell he didn’t want to come back. Micah refuses to wear his patch when he comes back and while you get glimpses of him in previous books you don’t get the full effect until this book. It seemed to me in the beginning that he was trying to be more bad than necessary to scare Sarah away or to prove to himself that he was that hard man. Of course Prince has a ton of inner demons he is battling the main one being that he is told to protect Sarah at all costs without hurting her himself. This turns out to be harder than he thought since he thinks she is above him but all he wants is her.
“You aren’t a bad boy?”
He chuckled, the sound wicked. Dangerous. “No. I’m not. I’m the meanest motherfucker you’ve ever met. And if you had any sense, you’d run the other way.”
Sarah started off the book being really naive to me almost so much that I put it down for a couple days. I’m not into the damsel in distress and naive women. I really enjoy strong female characters and thank goodness I didn’t give up on her because about half way through the book she starts to show that she has some serious backbone. She wants to have a Christmas party in her families mansion however the Deacons now own it. So she has to play by their rules which include having Prince be her shadow most of the time. She really reminds me of a steel magnolia women later in the book she actually even says it.
Ajax regarded her closely. “I would have imagined you would be crying on the floor about now, all things considered.”
“I would have thought someone would have educated you a bit better on southern women,” she said.
He rubbed his chin, a smile on his lips. “I’m pretty familiar.”
“Steel magnolias and all that shit,” she said, planting her hands on her hips.
I mean if you can stand up to Ajax who can’t you stand up to??? The ending was done well I wasn’t expecting that conclusion at all… A pretty darn good biker series. I would suggest it to anyone!
