I received an ARC of this book from NetGally for an honest review.
First let me say I have read the first book in this series, Make You Burn by author Megan Crane, and loved it. The author of this book, Rachael Johns, is part of a four author collaboration to write a MC series about New Orleans. As an avid biker/MC romance reader, I am always looking for quality romances with good writing and characters as well as a good plot with a little angst. So far the books in this series have exceeded my

- The Good : Travis and Billie have a bit of a rough start, but I liked their connection. There was good sex, but there were proper conversations that showed their chemistry in a non-sexual way. Getting Travis’ backstory and motivations was very appreciated and it made his actions make sense instead of just “because I’m a biker, b!tch” and I liked that.

- The Bad : Still not feeling the mystery of Priest. It’s a very tenuous thread that’s barely been expanded on between two books now. Essenti

When Travis returns to NOLA he wants to just in and quickly get out. But getting the guys to agree to sell the property that was left to them is harder than expected. Then there’s the issue with the current tenant who has captured his attention.

Billie is finally making a life for herself on her own – doing something she enjoys when Travis walks in and turns her world upside down. The only problem is that she might hate him just as much as she wants to sleep with him.

Okay, THIS MC romance is a little closer to my speed. The hero wasn't a complete jerk, the heroine had some backbone. Maybe I'll never like true MC romances but I sure as hell liked this one!

Billie was totally cute! She's kind of a bohemian-type of girl and she's incredibly sweet and kind. I loved how positive and upbeat she was. Especially since it seemed that being that way was a conscious choice for her. She had a crappy marriage before she

She used to prefer her art on the walls...
I was excited to read Fire Me Up because I wanted some answers to questions raised in the previous book. And, I was hoping for some more Ajax with his filthy mouth and caveman attitude. However; being that this 2nd book has a different author it seemed like he had a personality transplant, he lost his swagger. I think part of the change is because Billie, and maybe the author as well is from the UK and the dialogue is much mo
I love that Fire Me Up is a totally different kind MC story than I usually read. Travis "Cash" Sinclair is every bit a badass biker without having to be a part of a MC or a womanizer. It’s been ten years since The Deacons MC spit up. After Priest(the president) got into some trouble, Priest told the members of the Deacons of Bourbon Street MC to go their separate ways. Now Priest is dead, and he has left the properties that belonged to the Deacons MC to Travis and the other three MC bikers. But ...more

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest opinion.

Billie rents the building that used to be the clubhouse of the Deacons MC. It is now an Art Gallery. Art is something she has always had a passion for. She has talent herself but her family and ex-husband stifled her and ruined her confidence when they told her it was a waste of time. So while she does draw at times, she doesn't showcase her art, she showcases other peoples.

I am loving this story and the overall concept of this series. Four different authors, each telling the story of a different MC brother, while also continuing the overarching story of the death of their club president. It’s something different after reading a lot of repetition in stories out there.
I love the world that has been created in my mind with the descriptions of the French Quarter, so colorful and vivid that I can almost feel the Lou

I really loved this book, there was a new twist to the MC Romance novel here. We have a broken up MC, The Deacons of Bourbon Street, with men who had to give up their brotherhood and go out and find a place in the world they had turned their backs on.

The story brings Travis "Cash" Sinclair back to New Orleans, a place he swear he hates from the pain and betrayal he felt when he left here. When Priest Lombard , the former President of the Deacons, dies the club members re

As far as Biker Series goes, this one has certainly been a heck of a lot of fun! Sexy, Smooth and Sweet, Rachael Johns installment of the Deacons of Bourbon Street is not to be missed.

If you have read the first in the series, MAKE YOU BURN by Megan Crane, then you would have already met Travis "Cash" Sinclair, one of the four original members who have come back together in order to say goodbye to their dead president. Cash has inherited some of the "Deacons" property, which happens to be in use

Travis "Cash" Sinclair vowed her would never return to the Deacon's club after the President sent him away. Now the President of the Deacons has passed away and the former members are questioning if his death was really an accident. Travis did not expect to find a gallery in the old club and a free spirited woman who peaks his interest.

Billie Taylor can't believe the arrogance of Travis, he waltzes in as if he owns the place. Well he does, but Billie is not giving it up without a fight. Sparks

Travis sure knows how to woo a lady, "he sighed as if exasperated by her. “Because I’m hungry. I feel like beignets and I know how much you like them. Are you coming or not?" He knows how to knock a lady's sock off, "I’m getting rid of the condom and then I’m taking a shower,” he said as he headed for her bedroom door. “You can join me if you want."

4 1/2 stars, after reading book one and seeing this offered on NetGallery I knew I wanted to read this. When I first read book one which stood out among a lot of MC books and hearing each of the four books would be written by different authors I knew I had to see how this would turn out. Lets be honest this could be a complete disaster because even if the books were good they could completely not fit at all and who knows the books could have all been really bad and not fit, the flows could be of ...more

I love all things NOLA!!! My sister and I stay at Place d’Armes on St. Ann and we walk the quarter and walk and walk! I too love walking each street and discovering a new gallery or shop. We were just there in July and I truly hope we get back there again! That said, Billie’s love of Café du Monde had me salivating! I love the coffee and the beignets!

Really enjoyed this book! This is the second in the Deacons of Bourbon Street series and in my opinion, this series really should be read in order to truly understand everything that is going on. This book centers around Travis Sinclair or Cash to the brothers. He's not at all happy about being back in NOLA and is ready to leave the city and memories behind him. Unfortunately his business here isn't quite finished and he can't leave until it is. Getting rid of the tenant in a building he inherit ...more

I can handle an asshole hero and I can even sometimes handle sex scenes with other women before the hero and heroine hook up but when you combine the two together it completely ruins any chance of redemption in my eyes... Not even gonna bother going any further with this one.

*ARC of Fire Me Up by Rachael Johns provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Fire Me Up tells the story of Travis-- former MC member, former outlaw, current security analyist--and Billie—recently divorced, former artist, current gallery proprietor.

Travis returns to New Orleans to pay his respects when Priest, the President of “The Deacons” (Travis’s old MC), dies mysteriously. He feels obligated to stay and help his “brothers” get to the bottom of the suspicious death.

This is the second installment of the Deacons of Bourbon Street series, with each book being penned by a different author. The first book, Make You Burn, we met the dirty-talking raw and gritty, Ajax and his old lady, the stoic Sophie.

In this installment, our male lead is Cash (Travis) who, since being exiled from the Deacons, has been working as a security analyst in Tallahassee. Cash got his name because he was good with computers and finances. Our female lead is Billie, the artist who rents

I do love a good MC book so when I noticed this on NetGalley I put in my request, the blurb sounded good and I liked the idea of it being set in New Orleans, I think this is the first MC book I've read that's been set there it's also the first book I've read by this author.
I didn't realise when I requested this that it was actually book 2 in the 'Deacons of Bourbon Street' and while it was ok as a standalone I did feel I was missing information and background on the club in pa

Wow! This book was so many things put into one book! I absolutely loved this book and couldn't put it down. I loved Billie and Travis both and the chemistry they had was just so amazing. I loved how Billie stood up for herself and wouldn't let Travis walk all over her, and I loved how Travis learned how to love. To be honest, I really enjoyed that the story wasn't completely about the biking world and it mainly focused on Billie and Travis' relationship. Although I am intrigued to find out more ...more

The book is terrific. The writing is excellent. The love scenes are fantastic & hot. No spoiler here, but the end of the book was abrupt, no hint as to the subject of the next books' main character. Who will be next? I'm hoping it's Blues turn next! I cannot wait to find out.

Fire Me Up continues the story of the Deacons of Bourbon Street MC. This book is the story of Travis “Cash” Sinclair and Billie Taylor who loathe each other in the beginning but have such undeniable chemistry. This is a sweet, sexy, steamy read. I really enjoyed this book and I look forward to reading more from this group of authors.

I received an ARC of this book through NetGalley.

This is a tantalizing tale about a biker who wants to ditch his one percenter past, starting with his new Aussie tenant, but he ends up taking her to his bed instead.
