Review: Hold Me Down by Jackie Ashenden Book 3 in the Deacons of Bourbon Street MC Series
Thanks Netgalley for providing me with this novel in exchange for an honest review.
I read book one of this series and the idea of a motorcycle club that disbanded for whatever reason during Hurricane Katrina and then coming back together after the death of the president is really intriguing especially after 10 years. In a series where every novel is written by a different author you are going to have many different flavours of writing. Here in book 3 we have a bit of a slower less complete style from book 1. I enjoyed the characters but they were were not fully dimensional and could have been fleshed out a bit more as to who they were...we got the relationship from the past and chemistry now...but it had a real feel of insta-love and I just didn't connect with it. I Found myself enjoying the idea of the characters and story more than the writing itself. This could have been a real epic novel with the two clubs coming together but it felt very much second thought when the first thought was not complete....
I will read book 4 because I'm really curious as to what the next writer will do with the storyline but I did find this one a bit weak. 2.74 stars for this read.
