Title: Reaper’s Property
Author: Joanna Wylde
Series: Reapers MC #1
Marie doesn’t need a complication like Horse. The massive, tattooed, badass biker who shows up at her brother’s house one afternoon doesn’t agree. He wants Marie on his bike and in his bed. Now.
But Marie just left her abusive jerk of an ex-husband and she’s not looking for a new man. Especially one like Horse—she doesn’t know his real name or where he lives, she’s ninety percent certain he’s a criminal and that the “business” he talks with her brother isn’t website design. She needs him out of her life, which would be a snap if he’d just stop giving her mind-blowing orgasms.
Horse is part of the Reapers Motorcycle Club, and when he wants something, he takes it. What he wants is Marie, but she’s not interested in becoming “property of”.
Then her brother steals from the club. Marie can save him by giving Horse what he wants—at home, in public, on his bike… If she’s a very, very good girl, she’ll get lots more of those orgasms only he can offer, and he’ll let her brother live.
As a huge fan of MC romance books, I was excited to dive into Reaper’s Property, especially after having heard so many good things about this series. Joanna Wylde certainly did not disappoint, delivering a story that was raw, gritty, and incredibly intense. Reaper’s Property is pretty much everything I’d imagined from an outlaw motorcycle club and Horse is the definition of an alpha male book boyfriend. Despite their obvious differences, Horse and Marie’s connection was unexpectedly instantaneous and their story was both scorching hot and emotionally powerful. These two didn’t do anything halfway, taking on the world and each other full throttle. Their relationship was highly combustible and I worried for anyone who dare get between them. Reaper’s Property was action-packed and exhilarating. The pages of this book were filled with vivid characters and innuendo-laden dialogue, resulting in a story that was hilariously snarky and undeniably blush-inducing. There was never a dull moment with this book.
“You’re cute when you’re pissed. Kind of life a wet kitten. Gets me hard.”
Not only was Reaper’s Property well written, but the characters were obviously mindfully crafted. Joanna Wylde did a great job with Marie. The evolution of this character over the course of the story was one of the best things about this book. I loved how feisty she was; standing up to Horse in ways that sometimes had me nervous. Her emotional honesty struck me and I found myself feeling for her as she dealt with her brother’s mistakes and Horse’s inability to open up. She was a great match for Horse, able to handle his intensity with her fiery personality. Their push and pull was definitely entertaining. I’ll admit, there were moments where I could not stand Horse. He was possessive, demanding, and unapologetic in a way that was simultaneously infuriating and hot. I could however, appreciate the dominating alpha personality and how authentic it was to the MC world. Ultimately, his protective nature, deeply held sense of loyalty, and his devotion to Marie won out and his flaws and frustrating personality traits only added to the integrity of the character.
“Just remember, you ever point this at a person, you shoot it right at his heart and you shoot to kill. Never point a gun unless you’re ready to end a life.”
Reaper’s Property pulled me in from the beginning. I was incredibly intrigued by the storyline, anxious to see how things between Marie’s brother and the Reapers would play out. Since Marie was oblivious to the MC life, this was a great book for anyone just diving into this genre. The author made sure to explain each club tradition and nuance so that someone unfamiliar with the terminology and expectations could easily be able to enjoy this wild ride. As the story progressed, Joanna Wylde hit me with several twists and turns that kept me on my toes and made sure I just had to keep reading. The drama that unfolded was thrilling and even had me holding my breath a few times. I loved the dynamic Joanna created amongst the Reapers. Each character we met in the MC was unique and left me wanting more. I can’t wait for the rest of the series to hear from some of the other brothers. Reaper’s Property is an exciting and entertaining MC romance and a great start to what I’m sure will be an unforgettable series.
