Hold Me Down (The Deacons of Bourbon Street #3)
By Jackie Ashenden
Leonidas “Blue” Delacroix might be the prodigal son of New Orleans aristocrats, but the Deacons of Bourbon Street are his real family. And with their patriarch murdered, Blue wants nothing more than to unleash hell on the motorcycle club’s enemies—even if it means taking up arms against the girl who used to be his best friend. She’s done quite a bit of growing up, and suddenly their chemistry is red-hot. But where’s the line between ruthless seduction and sweet temptation?
For Alice Day, loyalty is everything. When Blue skipped town, she had no choice but to adopt a new family: their rivals, the Graveyard Ministry. Seeing him again reawakens old feelings . . . and fiery fantasies. Alice could never forget the scent of leather on his skin—just as she could never forgive the sting of his betrayal. But while the Ministry has treated her like one of their own, Blue is part of her soul. And as their liaisons hit the boiling point, Alice trusts her heart with the deadliest choice of her life.
Received a copy from NetGalley for a review.
I really enjoyed this book, it had everything a romance book would want in it: a bad boy seeking redemption, hot steamy sex, a strong independent girl who went through a load of crap, betrayal, drama, and some messed up side characters. The plot rolled at a great pace and kept you in the book. I really didn't know how it was going to end and I couldn't put it down because I just had to know. I would have given it 5 stars, but I was disappointed at the ending. It all seemed to wrap itself up in a neat little package after all the stress and drama. It just felt like a let down. I would read another of the series.
