Goodreads Link:


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?

Pic has always swore he'd never have another ol' lady. He's never let anyone get close to him. The he meets the clubs cleaning lady. She's not like his typical hook-up. She's older, wiser, a hard worker, and has him mesmerized. She's the star of his naughty thoughts and though he wants her, he knows she couldn't handle him or his life. Pic has always been hard core and we've seen enough of him in the other books to know how devastated he has been with the loss of his wife. Could he have finally met his match in more ways than one?

London had a life of her own once, a husband, and then everything changed. When her cousin overdosed and then didn't want her child, London became an instant mother to a half grown kid. Jessica has problems though and their enough that London has had only work and being a caretaker to keep her company. She's attracted to Reese "Picnic" Hayes, but her life has enough drama. As London tries to fight her attraction all choices are taken out of her hands. Just when she starts to live, her cousin again steps in.

There are many MC books and series, but not many transport you like The Reapers do. These books totally immerse you in the MC life. You feel the highs, the lows, and the danger. You also feel the never ending bond of brotherhood and sisterhood. The characters are amazing. They are hardened, but all have that bit of humanity that makes them relatable and lovable.

I won't lie, Picnic's character caught my eye way before book 4. Any man who could love his wife and girls like he did was amazing in my book. Add the hardcore to that and you have one amazingly hot MC Prez. London is a knew character, but you can truly relate to her. She's a hard worker and a great mother even if it isn't by birth.

This book is beyond 5 stars. I love this series, it's characters, and the Reapers. I can't wait for the books to come! Kudo's to the author Joann Wylde!!!


"So I guess this probably means our deal is off?"

Her voice sounded uncertain, almost scared. Still a little slurred, too. I turned to glare at her, taking in her tangled blonde hair, the curve of her generous hips in those tight jeans and the way her shirt drooped low enough to show plenty of cleavage.

"Not if you want to keep the club accounts," I growled, wondering why the hell I didn't just fire her ass. My cock reminded me that we weren't finished with her yet. "I'll see you out at my place on Tuesday. Make enough food for leftovers and maybe we'll have a talk about getting a crew into The Line."

"Thank you," she whispered.

"Eat shit," I said, and then slammed out the door.

Seems like a bit of an overreaction, Heather gloated as I climbed into my truck.
She could eat shit, too. Fucking women. Even dead, they stuck together.
