Merritt Broussard grew up knowing she had two choices if she stayed in Lagrange: run with the outlaws or get left in their dust. So she got the hell out, leaving behind a bad-boy biker and scorching memories of their summer fling. Now Merritt’s back, with trouble on her tail, and the sergeant-at-arms of the Devil’s Keepers is the one person she can still trust. But Greeley isn’t the boy she remembers. He’s harder now, more dangerous—and even more alluring.
Joseph “Greeley” Shaw loves two things: his bike and his club. At eighteen, he escaped a rough life, found the Devil’s Keepers on the wrong side of a bad weekend, and never looked back. Greeley swore to live and die by their code: Devil’s Keepers first, Devil’s Keepers forever. No one comes between him and his brothers—except for the tantalizing woman who touched his soul. Greeley’s the kind of man who honors his commitments . . . and Merritt is one promise he’s determined to keep.
Holly Chambless is tired of being the squeaky clean daughter of Lagrange’s holier-than-thou mayor. When her father is charged with corruption, she realizes that her whole life’s been a lie. Now’s her chance to do all the things she never dared, like scoring a job at a bar where reputations go to die, or reconnecting with the biker who sparked a secret hunger in her all those years ago. Holly isn’t a wide-eyed girl anymore – and this time she wants a taste of what has always been denied.
Killian “Uptown” Chenier has no time for stuck-up princesses. He likes fast bikes and wild sex. Sure, he remembers Holly. He sent her running with a wicked smile and a lesson about prying eyes. And sure, she’s grown up smoking-hot, with a body he’d like to personally desecrate. But Devil’s Keepers business is real and intense. Her daddy stole from the club, leaving his pretty blonde daughter a walking target. And when Uptown takes aim at what he wants, he never misses.
As always first and foremost is a thank you to Netgalley and Random House Loveswept for providing us with a copy of these books so that we could bring you this review.
Oh man these bad ass bikers really got the perfect names. They are devils in how hot and demanding they are. Now they are ready to take on the world until these women walk into their lives. With Greeley and Merritt we have a second chance love. One that has always been in their blood the whole time. Growing and just waiting to explode in the right way. They were exactly the thing that they needed. But I hated the fact that Merritt’s ex and stalker got to walk away. I felt for Greeley and his need to get revenge. Then we have a forbidden love in Uptown and Holly. Maybe it was the fact that they needed to release something that they had in the past. An event that changed how they both saw the world. My heart broke for Holly as she discovered more and more who her father really was.
I give both these books 4.5 rumbling kisses…
Happy Reading… Adri
