Devil's Own by Megan Crane

From the bestselling author of Devil’s Honor and Devil’s Mark, this seductive novel of the Louisiana bayou kicks into high gear as a dangerously sexy biker takes a no-nonsense teacher on the ultimate thrill ride.

Lara Ashburn hates bikers. She watched a motorcycle club destroy her hometown, bringing her brother down with it. That’s a life she put far in her rearview. So the last person she wants to see walking into her classroom is the top enforcer of the Devil’s Keepers. Big, mean, and gorgeous, all tattoos and leather, Chaser is everything Lara should avoid. Yet the insane chemistry sparking between them tempts her to break all the rules.

Ryan “Chaser” Frey has his hands full with a teen daughter in need of tough love, and he doesn’t have time for prissy teachers who want to tell him how to raise his kid. But Chaser never could resist a chick who gives as good as she gets. Lara is sexy as hell, and she’s not afraid of him. Plus, her links to a California club could provide the Devils with leverage against their enemies. But that would mean mixing business with pleasure—and risking the one woman Chaser can’t afford to lose.

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
Lara Ashburn left the biker life long ago, after having been betrayed by a prospect to the club run by her uncle. It was the last straw in a long line of hurt and disappointment. As a child, her father had been killed while a member of an outlaw club, her mother abandoned her and her brother to the club life to live in the civilian world, and her uncle had no use for her unless she was useful to the club. Her only remaining tie to that part of her life is her brother, who is currently serving time in a federal clubhouse only hours away from her new home in Lagrange, LA.

Starting over in this humidity laden landscape, she's done her best to blend in, lay low, and stay out of trouble. Unfortunately for her, her current class misfit is also the daughter of the Devil’s Keepers MC enforcer, Chaser.

Chaser has enough problems without being called on the carpet because of his daughter's behavior at school. When the prissy school teacher called him seven times in the past 24 hours, he knew a little visit was in order to set the woman straight. What he didn't realize was that the uptight and tight-laced woman was going to turn his world upside down. Or that she was very familiar with the biker world.

Lara's inner turmoil at being thrust back into the MC word is palpable. She has to come to terms that her world is turning upside down again and she doesn't know where to go. The words of her brother come back to haunt her "You see what you want to see." and Lara must do a lot of soul searching to find her happily ever after.

Lots of drama and we find out a lot more about Digger and what's in store for the Devil’s Keepers MC and all its brethren.

MC romances have always been my favorite, but I have to say that adding in a teacher heroine really boost them in my book. This is a book you won’t want to put down once you’ve started – I loved every page.

Ryan, aka Chaser, has just returned from a long trip to a phone full of voicemails from his teenage daughter’s teacher requesting a meet. Chaser heads to the school and meets Lara, his daughter’s teacher. It doesn’t take much from the conversation between Chaser and Lara for Chaser to discern that Lara knows more about club life then she’s willing to admit, then a little bit longer and he has her bent over the desk… This is the start to one crazy rollercoaster ride of a relationship. Lara thinks she doesn’t want anything to do with the MC life after all she witnessed having grown up around her uncle’s MC, but Chaser is showing her what it really means to be a part of a Motorcycle Club and it’s nothing like Lara believed. Add in a war against a rival MC, a president who obviously isn’t trust worthy, and a threat against Lara, and this makes for an angst filled book you’ll not be able to quit.

I love the fast pace of Devil’s Own and that while you can read it as a standalone, it also manages to pick right up where book two left off. The author’s done a brilliant job with this series and I can’t wait for more.

This is the third in the series, and each one deals with a different member of the Devil’s Keepers MC finding out that love for the brotherhood can be trumped by the love of a good woman.

In this instance, the club enforcer, Chaser, finds the chemistry is explosive with his daughter's history teacher, who calls him in to talk about her behaviour. With such a dramatic and unexpectedly hot start to the book, we are catapulted right back into the heat of the bayou. Rest assured the temperature never decreases. By some wonderful quirk of fate, these two trip every last one of their issues and prove themselves to be utterly worthy of the other... it makes for compulsive reading. We also have the ongoing plot regarding the club itself and the fallout following Whale's 'disappearance.' The scene is set for a major showdown in future installments.

For a really gritty, sexy, and super hot love story, with ongoing politics and intrigue too, this makes for a truly good read.

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.
