Sophie has the potential to be one heck of an h. Seriously if this book had panned out she would have been up there as a favorite of mine. The book opens with Sophie cruising through the streets of New Orleans in nothing but stripper heels, gold sparkly hot pants, and tassel pasties. The reason why? Her Dad, the President of the Deacon's of Bourbon Street had been killed in a motorcycle crash the night before and she was mad at him. Her Daddy had told her that she could dress up like a drag queen and wander the streets of the French Quarter over his dead body, so she paraded through the French Quarter like that as a one fingered salute to her Daddy for daring to die on her. As screwed up as that is on all levels, that's the kind of behavior I love in a h. Sophie was raised in the biker world, understood it even as she was kept apart from it because of her gender. I loved her strength, even when she was close to her danger zone of falling completely apart. I loved her take no crap attitude and her fearlessness.
Ajax was a prime alphahole. He was a come in, take charge, and take over kind of guy. But under all that rough, tough exterior if you looked really hard you could see the man underneath who cared about his club and cared about Sophie. He spoke not with words but with actions and he got his point across. In fact he probably should have kept his mouth shut more often since a lot of times when he opened it, I wanted to separate him from his dangly bits since he definitely owned jerk label.
The problem was this book had questions galore: What happened on that road where Priest died; Why did he exile his four trusted officers 10 years before? Why did he let the MC decline? What's the deal with the will and his decision on who got what? What about all those Deacons that defected? What's the deal with Cash and Prince? I swear it's like the author plotted out a great book then decided "Eh, never mind. It's too much work to hash this thing out, I'll just write hot sex scenes and hopefully my readers won't notice I forgot to write the rest of the book". Seriously, the only thing decided at the end of the book was that Sophie and Ajax were together. There was this weird epilogue where you're told that they had a year of fighting and making up but not one explanation as to what happened with the club, the property (other than it's obviously still there and the bar is running), the war or who killed Priest? Nothing. You could almost hear my poor Ipad pleading for it's life "please, please don't throw me!"
So you have a book with no substance, too much sex (although they are definitely nice sex scenes), unexpected POV changes, not enough dialogue, and too much introspection but I really liked the characters and wish they had a book worthy of them. As mad as I am, I want to know the answers to the questions that went unanswered. The fact that the next 3 books in the series will be written by three different authors kind of intrigues me where usually it would have me saying "No thanks, that's a train wreck waiting to happen". Why? Because I'm hoping the next author will write a book that actually is a complete book with answers to these unanswered questions (along with all that hot, raw sex).
Spice's completely mad rating: 2 Stars
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
As you can see I'm not a fan, but I will continue on with this series as there are different authors writing these books and I'm hoping that I will enjoy the next one.
The attraction between Sophie and Ajax was instant and undeniable. It seemed like even before they'd exchanged names they were getting off with each other. I like how the insta-lust between them was not confused for insta-love on either of their parts. I really liked Sophie. My heart hurt for her knowing she'd lost her only family. I also hurt when she realized her father whom she'd sacrificed so much for hadn't cared enough to do the same. It was certainly jarring. I liked Sophie and her wits. She was smart and mostly level headed. She was reliable and responsible for someone so young. She also had a wild streak.
Ajax was an interesting character. I liked him, sometimes. Other times I felt like he was too overbearing and rude. Ajax might have been short on words and emotions but the ones he shared and showed carried a lot of weight. I also felt horrible for him when I learned how he came to be a Deacon. I loved Ajax's loyalty and commitment to family, even if he knew pursuing Sophie broke the rules. Once he made Sophie his, she was his concern, even if she didn't like it.
I think I liked watching Sophie and Ajax butt heads as much as I did seeing them get along. I was a little concerned about how blase they were regarding Priest's death especially when they realized it might not have been an accident. I don't feel like it was given the attention it deserved and when you have characters like Sophie and Ajax who have strong connections to the deceased, it felt wrong. I do feel like the murder mystery was pushed aside and Sophie and Ajax's bedroom romps took center stage. Now I'm not complaining because they were hot, but I would've liked the story and sex to be balanced. However since there are more books coming, I'm hoping that there will be more about finding the truth.
As it is, I'm really excited to see Megan Crane writing something new and unfamiliar. It's definitely the hottest book of hers I've ever read. I like that she's pushing her boundaries. Overall, this book was a great introduction to a new story and characters and a great way to start off a new series. I'm already eagerly looking forward to the next book.
