❤❤ REAPER'S FIRE by Joanna Wylde 4 star review ❤❤

It’s time for more men and motorcycles in the latest from theNew York Times bestselling author of Reaper’s Fall...

The club comes first. 

I’ve lived by those words my whole life—assumed I’d die by them, too, and I never had a problem with that. My Reaper brothers took my back and I took theirs and it was enough. Then I met her. Tinker Garrett. She’s beautiful, she’s loyal, and she works so damned hard it scares me sometimes . . . She deserves a good man—one better than me. I can’t take her yet because the club still needs me. There’s another woman, another job, another fight just ahead. 

Now she’ll learn I’ve been lying to her all along. None of it’s real. Not my name, not my job, not even the clothes I wear. She thinks I’m nice. She pretends we’re just friends, that I’ve still got a soul . . . Mine’s been dead for years. Now I’m on fire for this woman, and a man can only burn for so long before he destroys everything around him.

I’m coming for you, Tinker.

Gah! REAPERS!! I love this series. So in love. I want to wrap my arms around my  kindle and love it.

Joanna Wylde has delivered one of the best MC series I think I have ever read. Her writing is nothing short of beautiful,  fabulous and absolutely addicting. She puts her words on paper and they suck you into a world of drama, angst, fierce loyalty and love. It's freaking amazing.

The story of Tinker and Gage was awesome. I have to admit I didn't like the whole Talia thing. Especially because he was sleeping with her. That really rubbed me the wrong way. It was probably the thing I liked the least about the book. I didn't like the "i did it for the club/took one for the team". Especially because Tink had to hear it. Almost like it was rubbed in her face...and most times, by Talia, it was. That was just a no go for me.

I still feel like Talia and Marsh are a loose end. They admitted to what they did but are still in the wind and I needed that tied up. I also felt like once the immediate drama was over, the book was over. I felt like we had a lot of loose ends not tied up than we normally do in Reapers books. I still had questions left by the time the book was over. 

However, the attraction and chemistry between Tink and Gage was off the charts. And I loved the interaction with her dad and Gage too. I love that he was invested enough to still be her dad. Still be her big protector. But then she also has Carrie in her life. I think that Carrie added a bit of a humor factor to the storyline.

I think that this may have been Joanna Wylde at her best. It's absolutely addicting.

I give it 4 stars

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Reapers Motorcycle Club and Silver Valley series comes an anthology of extras and never-before-released material, including a new short story featuring fan favorites Horse and Marie.

Charming Bastard: A Novella
I first met Riley Boone when I was four years old. We moved to Callup, Idaho after my dad blew out his back and had to go on disability. Boonie’s family lived next to ours. Every afternoon he’d swagger off the school bus after kindergarten like a conquering king. For the first week he ignored me, until I impressed him by climbing nearly thirty feet up in the tree behind his trailer. They had to call the fire department to get me down, but it was worth it to see the respect in his five-year-old eyes. He gave me a worm in honor of my accomplishment. I fell in love. The next day he made me eat the worm and our relationship has been complicated ever since. 

(Until now, this novella has been exclusively available in the paperback edition of Silver Bastard.)
