The bestselling author of Devil’s Honor returns with a deliciously sinful novel about a good girl who goes bad—and the notorious Louisiana biker who can’t resist the lure of forbidden fruit.
Holly Chambless is tired of being the squeaky clean daughter of Lagrange’s holier-than-thou mayor. When her father is charged with corruption, she realizes that her whole life’s been a lie. Now’s her chance to do all the things she never dared, like scoring a job at a bar where reputations go to die, or reconnecting with the biker who sparked a secret hunger in her all those years ago. Holly isn’t a wide-eyed girl anymore—and this time she wants a taste of what has always been denied.
Killian “Uptown” Chenier has no time for stuck-up princesses. He likes fast bikes and wild sex. Sure, he remembers Holly. He sent her running with a wicked smile and a lesson about prying eyes. And sure, she’s grown up smoking-hot, with a body he’d like to personally desecrate. But Devil’s Keepers business is real and intense. Her daddy stole from the club, leaving his pretty blonde daughter a walking target. And when Uptown takes aim at what he wants, he never misses.

*VOLUNTARILY REVIEWED THIS FROM NETGALLEY *
Thank you so much Netgalley for this ARC! After I finished Devil's Honor, I was hooked and hoping for Uptown/Killian's story. This your typical good girl falls for bad boy story and it does not disappoint.
The parts I loved.....the back and forth between the H and h; Uptown's filthy mouth; Uptown's interaction with his brothers: the epilogue.
The parts I was not so fond of......the constant "head talk" each character had going on.....esp with Holly; her inability to see what was happening in her own home; there was not much going on in the first 60% of the book; the action was all at the 80% mark.....and it did feel rushed.
I also felt the author repeated herself too much in regards to Uptown's "beauty" and Holly's lack of cup size. This was repeated over and over. I know there is an overall club conflict that will be told in the series but I felt too little was explained/given to the reader.
Overall, I enjoyed the book immensely.....the interaction between Uptown and Holly made the story. Hoping t'Roscoe's story is coming......I love the Edge series but the Devil's series may be my favorite now.
Hot Sex and Biker Boys
Devil’s Mark is the second book in The Devil’s Keepers series by Megan Crane. The Devil’s Keepers are a motorcycle club that rules the town of Lagrange in the outback country of Louisiana. Surrounded by swamps and bayous, you are introduced to the members of this club and their code. Ms. Crane is an outstanding writer painting vivid pictures of the events happening on the page. She knows how to bring out the heat as well as the down and dirty sex in her outstanding writing.
Holly is Mayor Benny Chambless’ daughter and she recently returned to Lagrange after graduating college. She is tired of being the good girl, especially after her dad is charged with corruption. Holly takes the chance to do all the things she never dared before after reconnecting with the bad boy biker of her dreams.
Killian “Uptown” Chenier found a family when he joined the Devil’s Keepers away from his druggie mother. He enjoys the biker life, especially the wild sex. That is until he sets his sights on Holly and no other woman attracts his interest.
This was an intense, entertaining story with well written, complex and authentic characters. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. Ms Crane takes the reader deep into the bayou country where one could feel the heat and humidity that surrounded the swamps as they read this hot and sexy story. Her characters are real, do not apologize for their behavior and are led by their animal instincts. I highly recommend this book to other readers, especially those looking for a hot and dirty read in the motorcycle genre.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
