Reaper's Legacy is a raw and intensely erotic tale in Joanna Wylde's Reapers Motorcycle Club series.
Eight years ago, Sophie gave her heart-and her virginity-to Zach Barrett on a night that couldn't have been less romantic or more embarrassing. Zach's step-brother, a steely-muscled, tattooed biker named Ruger, caught them in the act, getting a peep show of Sophie he's never forgotten.
She may have lost her dignity that fateful night, but Sophie also gained something precious-her son Noah. Unfortunately, Zach's a deadbeat dad, leaving Ruger to be Noah's only male role model. When he discovers Sophie and his nephew living in near poverty, Ruger takes matters into his own hands-with the help of the Reapers Motorcycle Club-to give them a better life.
Living with outlaw bikers wasn't Sophie's plan for her son, but Ruger isn't giving her a choice. He'll be there for Noah, whether she wants him or not. But Sophie does want him, has always wanted him. Now she'll learn that taking a biker to bed can get a girl dirty in every way.
Joanna Wylde is the fucking QUEEN of MC Romances! Hands Down! I’ve read some fantastic MC Romances in the past, but nothing compares to Joanna Wylde’s work. I was first introduced to Ms. Wylde’s with Reaper’s Property, Book 1 in the Reaper’s MC Series. After finishing that, I was so excited to read more! Reaper’s Legacy came along and just blew my mind. It’s gritty, it’s dramatic, it’s sexy, and so very intoxicating. Ms. Wylde creates this vibrant world full of foul mouth bikers, bad ass chicks, and suspenseful circumstances. I will NEVER get enough of the Reaper’s Motorcycle Club! Never!
Let me start off by saying that the Prologue to Reaper’s Legacy had me gasping for air. It’s hilarious, heart-breaking, and beautiful all in one, and that is only the first 15 pages or so. Jump ahead 8 years and we have the beginning of a VERY rocky road between Sophie and Ruger. The only good that came from that one horrible night 8 years ago with Zach Barrett, was her beautiful boy Noah. Screw the rest, no need to remember the shame and the embarrassment that she felt that night. In typical deadbeat dad fashion, Zach is not in the picture, and wants nothing to do with her or her son. When Ruger finds out that Zach cut off his support towards his family, leaving them living in horrible circumstances, he has no choice but to help them. Noah is his nephew, who he helped bring in to this world, and he will not see him suffer because of Noah’s ASS of a father.
Bringing the two to his home and around the Reaper’s MC has not been the easiest of transitions. Sophie wants nothing to do with the club. She doesn’t want that life for her son, but there is something about Ruger that holds her captive to his stubbornness. She has always craved that man, but she is fighting against herself to take things further. Ruger knows nothing about monogamy. He is used to a different slut in his bed every night. He isn’t ashamed and isn’t hiding anything. He is upfront with Sophie, and that is one thing that Sophie will not stand for. They try to stay away from each other, they yell and scream at one another, they throw insults here and there, but nothing can stop the carnal attraction that they have for each other.
❝The fact that my dick’s in its happy place is probably saving your life. Trust me when I say I’m seriously considering’ strangling you, Sophie. Thinking about fuckin’ you helps balance that out.❞
I LOVE it when two characters CAN’T STAND one another, but yet there is this connection between the two that pulls them closer and closer the more angry they get. It’s a constant battle between love and hate, and reading that storyline is just so entertaining. Don’t get me started on Ruger. HOT DAMN that man is SEXY AS SIN! Demanding, stubborn, and raunchy, and I still want to lick every part of him. Because under that big, bad, alpha exterior is a man who only wants to protect what is his, and it’s beautiful to catch him in those rare moments of vulnerability. Sophie was a great match for him in every way. She can take it, and she can dish it out and she makes no excuses about it. She loves hard and she will do anything for her son. It was refreshing to come across a heroine like her.
❝I’m not a knight in shining fucking armor, Sophie.❞
When it comes down to it, this story was all heart. Beautiful, suspenseful, and erotic as hell, Ms. Wylde doesn’t hold back in Reaper’s Legacy. She pulls out the guns every time and gives the readers what they want. Joanna Wylde is an author to drop everything for. She is and will always be on my MUST READ NOW list. Devil’s Game, Book 3 is up next, and I can’t wait for a Reaper’s MC vs. Devil’s Jack showdown of the masses!
