Devil's Honor by Megan Crane

In the start of a sizzling new series, bestselling author Megan Crane takes readers deep into bayou country, where the sultry swamp has nothing on the heat of Louisiana’s fiercest bikers: the Devil’s Keepers.

Merritt Broussard grew up knowing she had two choices if she stayed in Lagrange: run with the outlaws or get left in their dust. So she got the hell out, leaving behind a bad-boy biker and scorching memories of their summer fling. Now Merritt’s back, with trouble on her tail, and the sergeant-at-arms of the Devil’s Keepers is the one person she can still trust. But Greeley isn’t the boy she remembers. He’s harder now, more dangerous—and even more alluring.

Joseph “Greeley” Shaw loves two things: his bike and his club. At eighteen, he escaped a rough life, found the Devil’s Keepers on the wrong side of a bad weekend, and never looked back. Greeley swore to live and die by their code: Devil’s Keepers first, Devil’s Keepers forever. No one comes between him and his brothers—except for the tantalizing woman who touched his soul. Greeley’s the kind of man who honors his commitments... and Merritt is one promise he’s determined to keep.

Biker series can take many routes, and I really like where this one is going. A strong start with plenty of interesting characters who will hopeful feature in future books. In addition to the issues of family, love, and outlaw behaviour, we get to see that there are bigger, darker forces afoot. I always enjoy there being many levels to a story which will last throughout a series.

Merritt is a woman who has written her history as she saw it, and when she returns to the place that she last felt safe, she has a lot of lessons to learn and some growing up to do. Guiding her – or maybe forcing her to see what is real – is the man that she left behind many summers ago. Now that they stand on opposite sides of the tracks, it is a fabulous ride watching their story unfold. There is a good level of drama, plenty of hot and dirty, tied up in bad and dreamy! I was glad that I started reading it in the afternoon, as I did not stop until I turned the last page.

Really good read, thank you Ms. Crane.

I really loved this story but I’m giving a 3.5 star rating because I didn’t like Merritt, she’s so indecisive and unsure! It was ridiculous and I wanted to reach into my Kindle and throttle her. Other than Merritt’s… indecisiveness, this was a great book and I’m really looking forward to whoever’s story comes next!

Greely is the enforcer for the Devil’s Keepers MC, five years ago he met and fell in love with Merritt Broussard only to have her choose her law career over him. When Merritt leaves, Greely leaves her with one warning, “if you come back I will either kill you or keep you.” Now five years later, Merritt has a boyfriend in New York who is cray-cray so she heads home (to a place she despises) to Lagrange. As soon as Greely gets Merritt’s back he heads to her and the book steams right up – the sexy scenes are off the charts hot. Will he keep her?

One of my least favorite parts about this book was that once Greely finds out about why Merritt is really back in town and Greely moves her into his place it’s like “months go by” and there is very little detail. I find it quite odd that Merritt was cool with living with Greely for months then all of a sudden was ready to run again. It seemed off to me. My favorite part of this book was definitely the MC brothers, I’m so excited to read their stories and I’m especially excited to see what happens with the club president.

2.5 stars

This book really just didn't do it for me. The plot was interesting, however I just really didn't like the main character, Merritt, she annoyed me from start to finish.

I also felt the book took forever to get started even though the main characters were both in the book from the beginning. There was far too much description for me and I found myself getting bored.

The sex scenes were hot, so that's a bonus, and I quite liked Greeley, he was very alpha male so he fit his character.

Sadly, I can't see myself reading any further in the series.

Megan Crane is a New Jersey native who had great plans to star on Broadway, preferably in Evita, just like Patti LuPone. Sadly, her inability to wow audiences with her singing voice required a back-up plan. Accordingly, she graduated from Vassar College and got her MA and PhD in literature from the University of York in England. She wrote her doctoral dissertation on AIDS literature, mostly so she could wallow in her obsession with the remarkable multimedia artist David Wojnarowicz and her idol, the bitter and hilarious David Feinberg. After many years in the rain and subject to the whim of seasons, she followed the sun to Los Angeles, where she lives with too many pets and an artist named Jeff. She is still plotting her Broadway debut.
