Those readers who, like me, enjoyed Reaper’s Property will undoubtedly enjoy Reaper’s Legacy. It’s a better book, in my opinion but very much in the same vein.

Synopsis

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…

Filled with rough language, no-holds-barred sex, the rumblings of a biker war, and threats from the past, this fast-paced novel entertains while setting up the next book in the series.

I loved this book. It’s raw, gritty, and incredibly sexy. Joanna Wylde’s writing, characters and settings are skilfully penned, making for serious page-turners. The whole thing felt very real and very dangerous and I couldn’t stop reading.

Reviewed by Mandi on Jan 31 2014

The author does such a good job still making this book sexy, still giving us plenty of smex scenes – but allowing Sophie to really stand up for herself and not let Ruger drag her to the bedroom every time it pleases him. And it’s intense..If you like motorcycle club books or just a more grittier romance, definitely check this one out.

All in all I thought this was a very enjoyable MC romance read. I love all the secondary female characters, and can’t wait to see more and more of them. I thought the romance was well done between Sophie and Ruger, despite the fact that it was an up and down roller coaster ride the whole time!

...while I’d have enjoyed this book as a biker story, it fails for me as a romance. I just don’t get all swoony over alpha males who show very little respect for the women they’re supposed to care about. I can’t fault the writing, although the decision to write Sophie’s point of view in first person and Ruger’s in third did jar me a little.

This novel gave the reader more insight into a club life that many readers might not agree with...Wylde does an admirable job showcasing the nonconformity of the club set against the traditional ties of the club family life. I continue to recommend this series as a real peek into a different kind of life.

This is a stand alone book as well, and you don’t get the overwhelming feeling that you have missed something by not reading previous books...All in all – it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but I enjoyed it immensely!

I found the back and forth between these two to almost be too much but the action and the fast paced storyline made it so it wasn’t overwhelming or annoying. I wish we could have gotten more about what happened to these two (maybe had a flashback??) but I loved that they had a long history together...

I would recommend this one to fans of steamy contemporary romances where the hero is a big pain in the ass but redeems himself in the end in many ways. My advice is go into this one with an open mind because the language, scenes and references won't be for everyone...

I liked this book because it has a very good plot and characterization and very good secondary characters. Through the story you can come to the conclusion that all the glitters is not gold. You can see everyday people that are mean to others without reason and you can see some scary-looking bikers to help each other without questions.
