3.5 stars!

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 never read the prior books in this series,but I really was not lost following the storyline.
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
Pretty awesome MC story!
No cheating, really good sex scenes and a nice ending.
I'm quite impressed.
This is the 4th and final book in the Deacons of Bourbon Street series (written by 4 different authors). I've been struggling with this series. I did not like books 1 and 2 (2 stars for both). I read book 3 as an ARC and did like it a little more (3 stars). If I had not received this book as an ARC, I'm not sure I would have pushed through and read this last book. I am so glad I did!!!

Strip You Bare is the wrap up of the main storyline that has been with us from the first installment in the Decons of Boubon Street series.

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.

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.

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

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

Use of language is everything when drawing the reader into a story. A writer can describe something to death but if they cannot draw their reader(s) in then it’s just a lost cause. I'm a little biased when it comes to my home state (Louisiana) and when I think of it, it’s not just someplace I go back to for a visit or to check on relatives. Louisiana has a life and vibrancy of it's own. For me, what made this installment of the Deacons of Bourbon Street really good was that Ms. Yates described N ...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

4 hot and well dressed biker stars. I liked this book so much better than the one I read previous to this. There was an actual story line here, moving parts and such awesome chemistry between Micah and Sarah. The writing was also much more to my liking this time which is great because I do love me some biker books.

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

I have loved this series from the beginning and the idea of this series since I have heard about it. I think the way these authors worked and wrote together made this series stand out, and I wish more authors would do this. I couldn't wait for book four, the conclusion of this series to see how it would all end, to see who murdered Priest and to finally get Prince's story. We have scene Micah "Prince" in the previous books and we have gotten the other's opinions about Prince, their very vocal op ...more

Strip You Bare was one of those books that you couldn't wait to get your hands on but at the same time it made you sad because it meant the end ... But it was time to bring the mystery out into the light and every story/series always has an end :)

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
*Received an ARC from Netgalley.*

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.

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.

This was just an okay read for me. H was too much of a jerk for my taste & the virgin h was a bit of a doormat when it came to the H. Their lust was instant and the sex scenes were hot (a bit of D/s and spanking) but the emotional connection between them was lacking. I never really felt their feelings went beyond loving the great sex. Loving each other? Not so much.

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, the

Really 3 1/2 stars.

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

I am not really a fan of motorbikes and all that gang stuff, but the Deacons series included books by 3 of my favourite writers so I was definitely willing to give them a go. They worked!! I loved all 4 books (although I'm still not into the whole motorbikes, 'macho men in charge' culture). I loved the fact that the books went against type and all that 4 heroines were sexy, sassy, intelligent and definitely able to hold their own.
As always, Maisey created a fabulous h/H who I was able to engage

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.

As one of the Deacons of Bourbon Street MC they were once on top and now quickly are taking back what is there.

Sarah never felt intrigued by a man like she is with Micah, he is walking bad boy. He calls her on her bluffs and
