He never meant to hurt her.

Levi “Painter” Brooks was nothing before he joined the Reapers motorcycle club. The day he patched in, they became his brothers and his life. All they asked in return was a strong arm and unconditional loyalty—a loyalty that’s tested when he’s caught and sentenced to prison for a crime committed on their behalf.

Once it's listed, they go through and adjust all the book prices, and I'm assuming they're still working on that internationally.

In the US it has now been marked down to $5.12 on Amazon. I'm still looking into international pricing, but we're a long way from publication, and don't even have the blurb yet, LOL. There's still a ways to go. The good news is that whenever you order it, if you do a preorder you will automatically get the lowest price :)(less)

So I'm short on time - and PRETTY FUCKING PISSED OFF RIGHT NOW to be honest - as I accidentally deleted the long ass fucking review I wrote for this shit; however, I want to get this done because I know I am going to fucking forget everything about this book shortly.

Because, let's be honest.

I can't remember what I had for breakfast yesterday.

Or if I even HAD breakfast.

** 4,5-5 “I’m sorry, Mel.”STARS **

I’d fallen in love with Melanie Tucker.

Not some little-boy, bullsh*t needy “love” like I’d felt for Emmy Hayes –this was NOTHING like that. This was DEEP, almost PAINFUL in its unholy intensity. It was like she’d sent tendrils burrowing deep inside, binding us together so tightly I’d die if I ever tried to pull them out.

I was truly, deeply, and utterly f*cked, because I f*cking LOVED this girl…and she wasn’t for me.

Joanna Wylde has a fantastic thing going with her Reaper’s series. They are some of my favorite biker books. They are always a great and balanced mix of raw, steamy and sweet. Painter’s book had less of the sweet and more of the rough and raw, but I still enjoyed this second chance romance very much.

Yay!! I’ve been waiting for Painter’s story ever since we first got a glimpse of him. If you’ve read this series Painter is no stranger to you because we first learn about him when he sort of has a relationship with the club president’s daughter, Em. I was losing hope that Painter was ever going to man up and claim a woman for himself. It was looking like bachelorhood was his future.

Reaper's Fall, follows the tumultuous relationship of Painter and Melanie. Through the early years of series, interactions between Painter and Melanie have been limited, but they share a spark. So during Painter's incarceration they begin write letters to one another. Once Painter is released, he struggles with his feelings for Melanie, he wants her, but he doesn't think he is worthy of her.

I have been waiting for Painter’s HEA for what feels like forever and now it’s here, and it was completely worth the wait! If you follow the series, which I hope you do, you know that Painter has had his struggles. He had a rough childhood and as an adult he hasn’t always made the best decisions. That is his driving force behind denying and fighting his feelings for Melanie.

Reaper's Fall is the fifth book in the Reapers MC Series. The Reapers Men are one set of bikers that never fail to get the blood pumping. With action, steam, and temperamental characters, Reaper's Fall continues the tradition of fast bikes, rough men, and their spirited women.


Painter and Mel are not new characters to the series. Both made appearances in previous books. Painter has been with the club for a long time and Mel is a good friend of the club because of her clos

Sometimes I wish there was this instruction booklet for life. Laying out all the pitfalls and difficulties that can happen as we experience it. Not a hard and fast rule book or dictate of "you must do this or that will happen" type of thing. But rather a guide for people to read and remember when things get really tough, like a touchstone, maybe. Then you would read a few pages and say to yourself...Yup, I remember learning...

4 Stars - For all club business and story lines (undercover scenes very cool). I also loved Gage and Taz.

3 Stars– Painter and Mel issues were more on the annoying side and sadly these two are probably my least favorite couple of the series. Mel’s grudge card was definitely overplayed. Though the sex scenes are very very hot and they did have some flammable chemistry.

Overall this was a good installment just not a top favorite of mine.

So I've gone back and forth on my rating for this. On the one hand, I enjoyed Painter and Melanie individually as characters, as well as the side plot involving the Reapers and Gage. On the other hand, I find the romance between Melanie and Painter a little bit weak conflict wise.

Reaper's Fall is the highly anticipated story of Melanie and Painter. We've met Melanie in Reaper's Stand as Jessica's best friend. Painter was Em's former crush who went to prison by the end of Reaper's Stan

Reaper’s Fall is the fifth book and is part of the Reaper’s MC series. There are two MC worlds, the Reapers and the Silver Bastards. We know Mel and Painter from the Silver Bastards. Painter shared a cell with Puck. You do not need to read Silver Bastard prior to reading Reaper’s Fall, but I suggest you do, so you can get the full effect of the book.

If you haven’t read Silver Bastard, then you do not know the history of Mel and Painter, which is fine. If you are like me

Well this was a highly anticipated book for me. I love this series, so when I found out Painter was getting a book, not gonna lie, I was freaking excited.

The book started off in a good way. It started with Painter getting really angry at seeing Melanie with a biker guy. I didn't know what the hell was going on but I knew one thing, Painter was ready to claim his woman. The book then goes back in time to when Painter was in prison.

When I heard about Painter's book, I'm not jumping up and down. Well, he didn't actually leave me a good impression with the way he handle his friendship with Em. I still give him the benefit of the doubt, maybe he got his own story to tell.

For the first quarter of the book, I find it was pretty great. I love the way they build up the friendship between Painter and Mel when they both started writing to each other while he was in prison with Puck. And when he was released on parole, things got he

It feels like it's taken forever to get Melanie and Painter's story. I guess because there's been a slow build up in prior books and we got a taste of their story in the short, Sugar and Spice. (which is also included in this book)

Melanie's mom took off and her best friend, Jess, and her mom, London, have watched over her. London married Reese, aka Picnic, aka the Reaper's President and that's Melanie's introduction to Painter.

Melanie and Painter don't get to spend a lot of time together before
The weakest book in series. I really liked the scenes with other characters than just between the main couple. I guess my problem was that I never liked Painter or Mel and they just do not work together at all. The thing is I did not like Painter in the previous books. Here, when he was not with Mel or not thinking about Mel, he was bearable in this book. But otherwise, he was just asking for someone to slap me.

But my main problem is Mel who is lucky that Jessica is in the series otherwise she

Mixed feelings for this one.

Painter is a member of the Reapers MC, and has appeared in previous books of this series. We met Melanie in the last book – Reaper's Stand. She was the young girl looked after by Picnic’s old lady, London. She’s an absolute sweetheart, and even in that book she and Painter had a small flirtation going on. I was excited for their story, but the prologue of this book had me nervous from the very beginning.

While he was in prison, all Levi 'Painter' Brooks could think about was the sweet, innocent girl that wrote him letters every week.
