Strip You Bare
Micah Carpenter hates New Orleans. Hell, after ten years he no longer has much affection for the Deacons of Bourbon Street motorcycle club, eith ...more
By far the best in the series and serves as a decent finale for a series that never really reached its full potential for me. Oh well. At least we finally know who killed Priest. Plus, Micah and Sarah are explosive together.

I know this author from Harlequin Presents and her foray into contempory romances,what can I say,I am a fan,love her books and this was no exception.This was a departure for her writing an MC book,but her characters,not so different.Here you have a hero who is a MC member turned real estate mogul,and a heroine who is a southern belle, steel magnoila,a virgin,but she did have some sexual experience with ...more
As an experienced reader of MC themed stories , I can tell you that there are high chances for this book to be among top 10 best MC books for 2016. And yes, even if it is the 4th book from the Deacons of Bourbon Street you can read it as a stand alone.
Is this your typical MC book? I'll let you find out. You are in for a pleasant surprise. The plot does bring something fresh and unexpected. I was oscillating between giving it...more
Maisey Yates has a new fan! I really liked her writing. She did a great job blending the development of Micah/P ...more
We are focuses on MC member turned successful business hotelier, Micah Carpenter and family socialite, Sarah Delacroix. Sarah is also the cousin to another Deacons member.
Strip You Bear was a very steamy read with some major plot progression but overall the character connection still isn’t there for me. The transition between the bad ass biker attitudes didn’ ...more
I have to start off by saying Maisey Yates never disappoints and she didn't, again. :)
The story begins with Sarah entering her family's mansion as she plans and prepares for Christmas party.The Delacroix family mansion has been neglected after Katrina and Sarah wants to repair/revitalize it and bring the mansion back to life with this forthcoming party. But when she walks in and finds a very large and dangerous looking man waiting for her with ...more
I had been excited to read about the final Deacon, Prince. He was the most reluctant member of the reunited brothers. He was not happy about being summoned to New Orleans. He had created a new life for himself, a successful business and more money than he knew what to do with. But, he felt an obligation to the man that saved him, Priest. He owed it to him to find out who killed him, and to make them pay. He came back, but not home. He now wore an expens ...more
The Good: This is, by far, the best of the series. I loved Micah and Sarah, I thought their relationship was set up well and their chemistry was stellar. They had some good conversations and definitely solid banter. I would say that if I hadn’t read the earlier books, I would have probably been satisfied to just read this one and gotten the same amount of answers.
The Bad: This was a decent finale, but it couldn’t fix the weak overarching storyline. As a reader, answers were given, even if the pl ...more
Prince/Micah was the last member of the four who were banished by Priest but returned at his death. Micah had turned his life around and became a successful real estate mogul. Micah and Sarah meet as the club discover they own the Delacroix house and Sarah is about to have a Christmas party there.
I loved Sarah, she was not the high society woman I was expecting.She was witty, sarcastic and didn't back down from Micah at all. The banter between Sarah and Micah and the chemistry between t ...more
Sarah Delacroix is Leonidas “Blue” Delacroix's cousin which means she's from old New Orleans money. She's been raised to not make waves, avoid scandal and be the perfect hostess. Whil ...more
I really loved Sarah and Micah. They had explosive chemistry, in and out of the bedroom. They made for a fantastic read.
However, as a whole, the book had no wow factor. And it should have. A lot of answers needed to be revealed to the reader, and they w ...more
A safe MC read without ex-drama or club whores.
H and h grew up in different world:
1.H was threw out by his drug addict mother at 14, after joined this club, he did a lot illegal things for it. Now he was a success businessman returned to did the last thing for this club.
2. h grew up in a rich old family that she always did what her families anticipated. The first thing she didn't listen to them was when she broke her engagement with her cheating ex-boyfriend.
I received an ARC of this book from Random House-Loveswept/NetGally for an honest review.
Four authors, four stories, four men cast adrift from all they loved, four strong women, a mystery to be solved; all delivered in the Deacons of Bourbon Street series. I have read all of the books in this series and believe they can be read as stand alones but would highly recommend reading the entire series to avoid losing any of the richness involved in all of these intertwined stories.

Also, I never did like Ajax from having read the previous books -he is still an arrogant a-hole and I didn't like seeing Micah, ...more
3.5 steamy stars
It was good to finally get to the whole story - the underlying plot has been travelling alongside the romances for the Deacon men, and so I would suggest that you read the books in order, so that you get the full story. As each one is written by a different author, there are changes in style, but a consistent theme. It is always interesting to look at how different writing affects how a story develops.
I really loved the book before this one and I have to say this one just didn't hold up to it. We had the good girl go "bad" and the "bad" boy realize he had some good in him. Ghosts in the closets aired for all. Great story line, but fell flat. There just wasn't any chemistry between them to me. It all seemed flat kinda forced and the justice sought to me wasn't had and very unsatisfying. There was just something missing the zing the I can't put this down factor. It isn't bad ...more

Sarah who is totally oblivious to what is going on walks into her family owned home in the Quarter to start preparing for the Christmas party she is throwing only to be met by a stra ...more
This is Micah aka Prince’s story, he’s lived in San Francisco the last 10 years and had no desire to return to New Orleans but does out of loyalty to his deceased president. Now, he ...more
So, the Deacons of Bourbon Street is a series that each book has been written by a different author while maintaining the characters and the storyline. Sometimes this has been an easy adjustment from book to book and other times not quite so easy. The different authors have very different styles and while i'm committed to the story of the Deacons I sometimes prefer a certain style over another.
That being said, Maisey Yates was no ...more
