Strip You Bare
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sparks fly when a society belle and a biker with a troubled past get down and dirty in the Big Easy. Maisey Yates turns up the heat in the sizzling finale of a series co-written with Megan Crane, Rachael Johns, and Jackie Ashenden.
Micah Carpenter hates New Orleans. Hell, after ten years he no longer has much affection for the Deacons of Bourbon Street motorcycle club, either. But when the brotherhood calls, Micah answers. Joining the hunt for their mentor’s killer, he crosses paths with a Southern belle who exudes class—and sex appeal. Micah knows better than to mess with ice princesses: No matter how hot things get, they never melt. And yet he can’t stop himself from offering her a taste of the wrong side of the tracks.
Sarah Delacroix understands that reputation is everything. The daughter of a prominent family rocked by scandal, she’s desperate to restore their good name. Micah’s exactly the kind of man she should be avoiding. Behind his sleek and sophisticated exterior beats the heart of a predator—and she knows it. But, like the tattoos beneath his tailored suit, his rough edges are irresistible. And all too soon Sarah finds him getting under her skin . . . and living out every one of her hottest fantasies.
I really enjoyed this series, even though I only read the last two books in it. I loved the story of Micah aka Prince and Sarah.
Sarah, who is also Blue’s cousin….is what one would assume is a spoiled rich girl living the life that she has been forced to live as part of the Delecroix family. When she meet’s Prince, it is because the Deacons have come to have in their possession, a mansion previously owned by her family. Ajax, the current MC president, seems to assume that the Delecroix have something to do with their former president’s death, so he has put Prince in the mansion to basically get info from Sarah.
Micah is part of the 4 Deacons who were sent away for 10 years, and while he was gone, he carved out a life for himself away from being a “biker”, and that is the life he wants to return to. Or so he thinks. He meet’s Sarah, and in the course of their relationship, develops feelings and realizes that what he needs and where he should be is truly as Prince, and not as Micah.
Some plot twists and turns that I did not see coming threaten to destroy what Prince and Sarah have, even though she loves him, he thinks she deserves better than him.
I loved the chemistry between these two. I disliked Ajax tremendously, and I don’t think there is any redeeming part of him that I could ever grow to like. This was a very good and quick read, and I look forward to more from Maisey Yates 🙂
