5 Picnic Stars!

From the very beginning of the Reaper’s series, I’ve been dying to get more Picnic. And after reading Em and Liam’s book, I was even more excited. His book did not disappoint. Picnic is older than the other guys, he’s a dad and he’s president of the Reaper’s MC, but he kick’s ass. I love him, love the book, and love the series!

London lives in the same town as all the bikers, but she doesn’t run with that crowd. She owns her own cleaning service and takes care of her cousin’s d

I was learning the hard way that nothing can protect us from the real monsters.

I think there's something about the Hayes family that just screams awesome. Em from Devil's Gamewas my favorite heroine in the series and I can now say that Reese "Picnic" Hayes is my favorite hero in the series. Seriously. Move over Horse, Ruger, and Hunter because no one does it better than an older man. Well not that Picnic is old at 43, but in books overrun with 20 somethings, he was a man-wh

I love this book and everything about it! It was gritty and dirty and it had older more established characters.

Reese "Picnic" Hayes is a scary man. As the President of the Reapers he's lived a full life for only being 43 years old. His wife, Heather, died from breast cancer six years ago and left him to raise two daughters. Both girls are grown ups now and we've met them in previous Reaper books.

Wowzers this was one fast paced high on the action hot read. I loved that the characters were in my age bracket. Some have casted senior citizen looking guys that I’m trying not to take personal offense because Picnic although his girls are grown isn’t social security collecting age.

Just to clear the air, biker romances are not my choice of sub-genre nor do I ever feel the need to seek them out to read. Not unless the author is Joanna Wylde. Not unless it’s the Reapers MC series. My reading tastes are very narrow and I’m a picky bitch but this author and her addictive biker books work for me. I don’t think I’ll ever understand their freestyle way of life – most of their ideals go against my own – but I sure have a blast reading about them and the all-consuming pass

5 Presidential Stars

We met Picnic in Reaper’s Property and my first thought was this badass MC Prez will totally kill your ass…four books later and I still think Pic is a badass MC Prez, but he is also so much more.

Picnic is strong, determined, loving, self sacrificing, generous, and protective. Since his wife’s passing six years ago it has just been him and his girls. Now that both are grown and moved on he is alone. Regardless, Picnic isn’t in the

I have really enjoyed the Reaper’s Series. In each book we get a little bit of Reese “Picnic” Hayes and in book #3 Devil’s Game we get more. We also get a bit of London Armstrong too. Within those last few pages you just knew she’d be Picnic’s undoing.

In this one we get a little more grit, a little more badassery and a whole lot of Reese Hayes. Honestly I couldn’t get enough of this guy.

A week ago I decided I wanted to read one motorcycle romance. This review is for my fifth of the week. Indeed once you fall into the porno trap it is nearly impossible to pull yourself back up. Not to mention it’s sticky. Oh so very sticky.

If you aren’t familiar with how these types of series work, it’s pretty simple. Each book follows a different member of the club and the woman he will commence to banging. The focus of this stor

Since the loss of his wife, Picnic vowed to never have another old lady and never love again. He basically became a man-whore after that.
And in reality, no woman got his attention after that.

Well, this time around it was probably more tolerable than the first time around. But I'm still not really sold on London because what she did was supper dumb. If the character was younger than okay, maybe. But a grown-up woman and she does not realise that what she's doing cannot have possibly any good outcome? And honestly, I dislike Jessica. Is it bad that I sort of wish she'd died? Or stayed away at least.

Honestly? London was annoying. I loved Picnic/Hunter scenes... so awesome! :D

I suspected there was more to his manwhoring ways that he let on, and I was right. He showed his soft side, as evidenced by his love for his two daughters and his loyalty to his dead wife in the last book and in this book. But he is still Picnic, president of an outlaw motorcycle club. Meaning, he still has some asshole moments. Moments that just made me go...

I devoured this book in a day and it's left me itching for more. Seriously, it was like crack, or what I would imagine crack to be like. Anyway bottom line - it kicked ass.


London Armstrong doesn't know much about the Reapers, other than the cleaning contracts she has with them, and that they are kind of scary. She is focused on building up her business and taking care of her young cousin, Jessica, who was born with some drug/alcohol related issues. Her life is pretty predictable, other than hav

***Spoilers May Ensue***

So I will start by saying that - not gonna lie - I was not really all that excited about this installment of the Reaper's Series. Picnic kinda pissed me off in the last book by 1) beating the ever living $H!T out of my Hunter and 2) banging every barely legal-less-than-half-his-age chick at the rodeo.


So needless to say, my expectations to love this were not that high above "fair to middling."

But then I read the prologue.

My Views : Yes Yes…I had High expectations from Picnic’s book and I must say that Joanna Wylde didn’t disappoint. I just couldn’t put this book down. There were certain things that I thought were similar to the other MC Reaper’s books but this one was the best in this series. I loved Picnic’s and London’s pair…they were as if made for each other. The protagonists are elder here compared to the other books but I loved it, it was a new thing but that didn’t dim

When I first(since then, it's been a many times of rereading) read Reaper's Property back in 2013, I saw this series AND this author going places. I have loved all characters and I have loved how Joanna can tell her stories. They're gritty, naughty, hilarious and they stick with you. A lot, and I mean a lot of MC's stories have been written.

Was I reading a different book from everyone else? I feel like one of the only people who doesn't have glowing things to say about Reaper's Stand. It's too bad, because my hopes were high, considering how much I liked the previous book.

I have loved just about every book in this series, with the exception of "Devil's Game". What I did like about the last book, was the teaser to Picnic's book at the end. I never pictured Picnic being sexy as hell. I had thought he was an old man, but it turns out he's a couple of years younger than me!! This was a FANTASTIC story and I knew that Joanna Wylde had it in her to write such perfection. I'm still trying to decide between P
