[Pat's ARC Review]: "Devil's Mark"

romance novel cover, contemporary romance, Devil's Mark by Megan Crane
Devil's Mark by Megan Crane
Publisher: Loveswept (January 3, 2017)
Series: The Devil's Keepers, 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance

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.

Pat's Review:

The Devils Keepers MC pretty much owned the small town of Lagrange, Louisiana.
Most of the people who lived there were fine with it--it formed a circle of some protection around them. Killian (Uptown) Chenier was a member of the club and very proud of it. He grew up with a single mom who was addicted to drugs and sex, leaving him a boy without choices. The Club was his home and family.

Holly Chambliss, known as the Princess of LaGrange, grew up in a great big house with all the privileges of being the Mayor's daughter. Her mom spent most of her life asleep in her room thanks to her addiction to alcohol and prescription drugs. But Holly's life changed drastically when her father was arrested for corruption. A friend suggested that a local bar, Dumb Gator, was looking for a female bartender. She knew it was a biker hangout, but she really needed a job and decided she needed to explore the world she was protected from all her life. She caught the eye of Uptown as soon as she walked in the door. The Princess was slumming. He immediately took control of the situation, offering protection . . . and a lot more, if she was willing. Their banter is hysterical, especially when the big bad biker can't help but smile at some of her remarks. But there are dangerous things going on in the club, and Holly gets pulled into the drama. Uptown finally realizes that she is not just another biker chick: she is his.

Rough biker language, sexy and suspenseful--if you like MC novels, this is a great read. This is the second in the series, but can be read as a stand alone.
