Reaper’s Stand by Joanna Wylde
Holy fucking shitballs. Do not start reading this book at 10pm. Trust me when I say that it will wreak havoc on your good night's sleep. As in, there won't be any sleep, good or not. Upon being accused of lack of attentiveness to the husband, excessive crankiness, and overall exhaustion as a result of reading nonstop, I decided that Joanna Wylde is to blame. (No reason to take responsibility for my lack of self control around Reaper's MC books when there's a perfectly good scapegoat: the author. Duh.)
Seriously though, this book was amazing. I couldn't put it down. Like hardcore loved it. It wasn't a comfortable read at times. The story definitely took me outside of my comfort zone and gave me all kinds of feels. Not all warm fuzzies. Far from it. But that's what made it so extra-ordinary. It's a romance, super erotic, and the plot is solid with unpredictable ups and downs. It was more exciting than riding a roller coaster. And I love roller coasters.
I don't care if you like MC books, if you've got a reading list longer than an over-achieving book blogger's. Drop everything. 1-click this book. Start reading it immediately. Don't repeat my amateur mistake (I'm not really an amateur, just a glutton for punishment). This is a MUST READ. Having said that, I loved the whole series. So if you haven't read the whole series yet, you MUST read it! Must!
“DUDE, DROP YOUR PANTIES AND READ PICNIC.” This is what was sent to me by a fellow reviewer (see above), and since we enjoy the same authors, I did as I was told. Well, the reading part anyway.
And now, Picnic has ruined me for all future biker boyfriends. This man is blunt, rude, crude, funny, loves wholeheartedly, knows when to claim a woman and give her a good time. The suspense and action literally starts from page 1, and you never know what new plot twist will be added down the line. This is by far the best and my favorite of the Reaper’s books. Listen to us: DO NOT begin reading this at midnight or you might as well call in sick the next day. [October 2014]
Reaper’s MC Series Reading Order
As Reapers Motorcycle Club president, Reese "Picnic" Hayes has given his entire life to the club. After losing his wife, he knew he'd never love another woman. And with two daughters to raise and a club to manage, that was just fine with him. These days, Reese keeps his relationships free and easy--he definitely doesn't want to waste his time on a glorified cleaning lady like London Armstrong.
Too bad he's completely obsessed with her.
Besides running her own business, London's got her junkie cousin's daughter to look after--a more reckless than average eighteen-year-old. Sure she's attracted to the Reapers' president, but she's not stupid.
Reese Hayes is a criminal and a thug. But when her young cousin gets caught up with a ruthless drug cartel, Reese might be the only man who can help her. Now London has to make the hardest decision of her
life--how far will she go to save her family?
