Review – Devil’s Honor (The Devil’s Keepers #1) by Megan Crane

Merritt Broussard grew up knowing she had two choices if she stayed in Lagrange: run with the outlaws or get left in their dust. So she got the hell out, leaving behind a bad-boy biker and scorching memories of their summer fling. Now Merritt’s back, with trouble on her tail, and the sergeant-at-arms of the Devil’s Keepers is the one person she can still trust. But Greeley isn’t the boy she remembers. He’s harder now, more dangerous—and even more alluring.

Joseph “Greeley” Shaw loves two things: his bike and his club. At eighteen, he escaped a rough life, found the Devil’s Keepers on the wrong side of a bad weekend, and never looked back. Greeley swore to live and die by their code: Devil’s Keepers first, Devil’s Keepers forever. No one comes between him and his brothers—except for the tantalizing woman who touched his soul. Greeley’s the kind of man who honors his commitments . . . and Merritt is one promise he’s determined to keep.

Although I liked the concept of this MC based read, it left me feeling slightly underwhelmed. Not in the “I didn’t like it” state, more like “I didn’t really get it” kind of way. And that’s really hard for me to admit considering I was so drawn in with the Prologue.

After Merritt’s father passes away and feeling scared of her boyfriend in New York, Merritt seeks “solace” in her hometown of Lagrange. But returning to the town she left behind before attending law school isn’t exactly the “welcome home” most would picture. She’s returning to the town she fled from. Away from her father, the “going nowhere” of the town, but most importantly, the guy she had a three month fling with right before she left for school. She never forgot his parting words and is scared to find out what might actually happen now that she’s back.

Five years ago Greeley lowered his guard and allowed himself to fall for Merritt during a hot and steamy summer. But even though he professed his feelings for her and asked her to stay (Prologue), she still left him behind. Fast forward to the present and Greeley is Sergeant at Arms for his MC, Devil’s Keepers, where the tension within the club is getting pretty intense. So when he hears that Merritt is back in town, things get pretty heated, pretty fast. And then….

Sigh…this is where is I become underwhelmed. Everything starts off so promising, but then there’s no true character building. The timeline is erratic (not smooth) and then, bam…it’s over. Yeah, there’s a little bit of drama within the club and it’s a good way to keep the series going, but I just felt like there was useless filler instead of building. Does that make sense? I hope so because that’s why I’m still giving this one a 3 star rating. The pull was there, the sex was hot, the concept was even there, but it was just…sigh…sorry. Just trying to be honest.
