Book 3, Devil's Keepers - The Devil's Keepers
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
From the bestselling author of Devil’s Honor and Devil’s Mark, this seductive novel of the Louisiana bayou kicks into high gear as a dangerously sexy biker takes a no-nonsense teacher on the ultimate thrill ride.
Lara Ashburn hates bikers. She watched a motorcycle club destroy her hometown, bringing her brother down with it. That’s a life she put far in her rearview. So the last person she wants to see walking into her classroom is the top enforcer of the Devil’s Keepers. Big, mean, and gorgeous, all tattoos and leather, Chaser is everything Lara should avoid. Yet the insane chemistry sparking between them tempts her to break all the rules.
Ryan “Chaser” Frey has his hands full with a teen daughter in need of tough love, and he doesn’t have time for prissy teachers who want to tell him how to raise his kid. But Chaser never could resist a chick who gives as good as she gets. Lara is sexy as hell, and she’s not afraid of him. Plus, her links to a California club could provide the Devils with leverage against their enemies. But that would mean mixing business with pleasure—and risking the one woman Chaser can’t afford to lose.

Good edition to the series!
I was generously given this book as an ARC. It was a good edition to the series. The chemistry between the H/h is scorching hot. The story reveals the heart of the scary enforcer, Chaser. Behind his tough facade as the club's enforcer, he is a fiercely loving father. Lara is his daughter's teacher......who wants to help the children of bikers, since she also had a troublesome childhood as part of a club. I found the initial scene in the classroom completely unbelievable.....especially since Lara in teacher mode was completely defiant and rude. And yet she kisses him first! Plus she wants to come off as this professional person but her behavior in the parent-teacher meeting is ludicrous. She continues to bait Chaser, yet her internal dialogue is that she should know better. So I guess I had a bit of a problem with the heroine. This author can be a bit wordy especially when the character talk "in their head", I enjoyed visiting with the other members, esp Uptown. I can't wait for t'Roscoe's story. . And I hope the ongoing story arc reg the club is resolved sooner than later.
I'm not your typical MC fan. I prefer a more "safe" read and you don't typically relate a biker book to safe. There are some out there, so I'm always trying out new authors to find them.
I know everyone's version of safe varies but my main requirement is no cheating. I know there are a lot of groupies in MC books and I need a H that isn't going to dabble on the side. What draws me to want to find a safe-ish biker book is that I'm a fan of the dominant alpha's in my reads and you're pretty much guaranteed to find one in a biker.
I'm happy to report there is no cheating in this book. You do see the wilder side of the MC's and the groupies but Chaser, our H, does not touch anyone since meeting Lara. I can't say the same for Lara, however, she already had a date scheduled when she meets Chaser. She still goes on the date since Chaser and her encounter wasn't exactly sunshine and roses but she does not continue to see the other man after the first date.
I actually really enjoyed this book. It was maturely written and I loved the way these two met. Not only do I like a strong alpha in my books but I also like a strong heroine and you get that with Lara. Their first meet had them verbally sparring which made me excited to see where the author was going to take the story.
I do wish Lara held out more with Chaser and made him work for her more, especially after that explosive sparring they did. I enjoy the chase the man has to do with a stronger heroine so I expected it more in this one. Even though she caved too soon for my tastes, I still felt she was a strong character. I will definitely read more from this author. ARC provided by Netgalley.
I loved this one and I thinks it's the best of the series so far. Megan Crane has built a fantastic world deep in the Louisiana Bayou where the Devil's Keepers rule yet strong women can bring these men to their knees. This is the third book in the series but each of these can be read standalone although there is a thread of the story that goes through each book. The author does of good job of catching you up on that plot line in each book.
Chaser Frey has his hands full with the MC. Something isn't right but he can't quite figure it out. Add to that a teenage daughter that is giving him fits and a teacher who is blowing up his phone wanting to talk about his daughter. Lara Ashburn knows all about bikers and the life. After all she spent the first 18 years of her life with bikers all around her. She got away from that life so being sucked back into by Chaser Frey isn't going to happen. Until it does....
I highly recommend this one.
