BLOG TOUR ~ Reapers Stand by Joanna Wylde!

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?

“Okay, let’s get some shit straight and then you can head out.” Great, here it came. The Talk. Fortunately I was ahead of him for once.

“Don’t worry, Reese. I know this was just a one-off for you, and that you don’t want a relationship. That’s what I needed, too, so in a way it’s perfect. No harm, no foul. We can just pretend this never happened.”

A scowl covered his face. “What the fuck are you talking about?”

“Us. Or rather, the fact that there isn’t an ‘us.’ I get it—you like to sleep around. I had a good time, but I’m not expecting a ring or anything.”

His eyes widened, and I smirked.

“Although I’ll be around if you want another booty call,” I added slyly.

Yay me! I’m a sophisticated woman who knows the difference between love and sex.

Reese’s scowl grew deeper, and then suddenly he moved and I was under him, pinned down against the bed. He pulled my hands up, holding them prisoner above my head.

“Are you fucked in the head?” he demanded harshly. “You get laid for the first time in years, it’s phenomenal—”

“Well, aren’t you the modest one?”

“It’s phenomenal,” he repeated, emphasizing the word heavily. “And now you’re just going to ignore me? 

I am NOT fuckin’ down with that.”

I’m not sure where to begin with this review because there were things about this book that just didn’t do it for me!

So ~ what I didn't like was the heroine, well no actually that’s not true I really liked her, in fact I’d go so far as to say I could totally relate to her, single mum, late thirties, hard worker, moral, principled & as the author described her a full on momma bear BUT I just could not believe how she did a complete 180 and went against everything she ever stood for to carry out the antics she got up to! I’m all for escapism as a reader but it was just too far fetched for me and I couldn’t buy into it AT ALL!
I also after reading the first 3 books in this series couldn’t believe that the Reapers would just let that slip by, I don’t want to give anything away but considering they were tipped off that she could be working against them it took less than 2 sentences for her to be believed and given the chance to redeem herself!

Despite the above I did love this book, Joanna said she hoped we loved the older characters and I did, Picnic’s a full on alpha with a soft side to match his wild side, London adjusting from boring to crazy and taking it all in her stride. The way she goes all in and is accepted into a community that is alien to her really shows what she’s all about and the strength of her character.

There’s a lot going on in this book from wayward teens, to the cartel, to dodgy cops, explosions, tragedy & lots & lots of schmexy!! It’s got it all going on and apart from how I felt about the above it’s gripping stuff!

I feel like we know the Reapers now and some of their traits, they’re recognisable and hysterical when all together doing their thing, a few new characters were brought in in this book and I’m hoping they get their own story.

There’s no doubt Joanna can write a good MC book, she obviously does her research, the sex is panty melting stuff, alphas galore, strong women and I cannot wait for what’s next!
