Reapers MC #6

Reaper's Fire

Rate this book
It’s time for more men and motorcycles in the latest from the New 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.

Up til now, this book's predecessor, Reaper's Fall is my least favorite Reaper's book thus far.


Whelp, consider yourself dethroned, Fall, because this hot mess?


Hath stolen thy scepter.

I went into this book blind. I didn't read the blurb and I didn't really care.

Because - hello! - REAPER BOOK.

So imagine the lack of enthusiasm in my undergarments when I started this bad boy and realized that, not only did it parallel one of the basic story lines of Fall, but it was ENTIRELY about that story line and- more so not excitingly - that story's main role player - Gage "bangs all the strippers" Cooper.




When I think about how this book felt to me, one word comes to mind:


The whole thing felt tainted.


If you read Fall, you know that Gage is pretending to be "Cooper."

And he's banging Talia, the skank bitch sister of the local MC president.

For the club. As a cover.

To get close to him and figure out why this Reaper "support" chapter that has apparently gone awry.

And this is where that book takes off.

With our H in a fake relationship with Talia.

Except she and Tinker don't know it's fake...and the fucking is sure real.


Well, imagine how even MORE aflutter my heart was NOT when when Gage is still banging this chick almost 50% into this book.

You know, THIS book.

Which is supposed to be about Gage and Tinker (a name we will not even bother to discuss).

And not ONLY does he continue to bang Talia throughout almost the whole book...

...but we have to READ about it...

...And Tinker has to LISTEN to it.

Because Gage lives in the apartment building she owns. And OF COURSE their bedrooms share a wall.


Another strike?

At about 75%, Talia approaches Gage and Tinker (after the big "reveal") and starts shit with them, and Gage carries Talia out of the room.

And at 87%, Talia calls Gage while he is with Tinker and Gage "glanced at [Tinker] and jerked his head toward the door in a silent request for privacy."



So at 87 fucking percent Talia is STILL a main player here.

And she is STILL taking Gage's attention from Tinker.

Even though he says he hates her, even though she's a huge C-U-N-T, and even though he was only banging her "for the club...."

He was still banging her.

And she was ALL over this book.

And ALL over Gage.

A lot more than Tinker it seemed.

Like a fart that crop dusts the entire fucking hallway.

I'm sorry...but where's the romance in that?

Where's the romance in reading about the H constantly fucking, kissing, making out with, and having lap sitting sessions - ALL IN DETAIL - with a woman who is not the main love interest?

I'll tell you where it is.

And it ain't here, people.


Needless to say, this whole thing didn't sit well with me.

The mere presence of this situation was enough to put a poor taste in my mouth, but the fact that it carried on for so long?

Just soured the whole book for me.

Aside from that - either because of the Talia situation or, perhaps, even just on TOP of that - Gage and Tinker never really even spend all that much time together.

I think they only actually spend one full night together before the end of the book. And the one outing they have together ends in Gage carrying Talia out the door over his shoulder as I mentioned above.

On top of that, the plot itself - the whole situation with the rogue MC faction - just felt boring (to me), sadly.


Overall, this book as a whole just felt flat, unromantic, and quite frankly, very put-down-able.

But - if the whole H banging another woman thing for half the book isn't a problem for you...


...you might fare better than I did.

Sadly, it just didn't set a tone I prefer when reading ROMANCE...

Yup. I was woman enough to own it. Tinker Garrett, aged thirty-six, was in lust with Cooper Romero. The man was so damed easy on the eyes that it caused me physical pain. Okay, not pain. Warm tinglies.

I've been eagerly anticipating Gage's book ever since the little snippet I read in Reaper's Fall. Add into the mix the interconnected story happening in Silver Bastard and I was utterly salivating for this book. I was hooked from the very first chapter! I knew from the very begging that I'd absolutely love Gage and I wasn't wrong. After years of managing the Reaper's strip club, the man that's used to sleeping with a different woman every night gets to hook up with the one he actually doesn't want...while lusting after the one he truly craves but can't have. Sound intriguing? Because it totally was!

Sent in to investigate an MC the Reapers suspect of stealing from them, his best in is the president's trashy sister. Unfortunately for him, it's also the same time he meets the one woman that tempts him to leave his womanizing ways behind. Too bad he can't have her since his job and brotherhood come first.

I loved the first 30% of the story, but then somewhere around the 40% mark, I began to get...aggravated. While I don't mind a bit of angst between the hero and heroine and even more slow burn in their relationship, having the hero spend over half the book sleeping with another woman was a bit much. It began to take away from the story for me because after the 40% mark I got tired of reading about it. I almost wished it was handled off the pages for parts because Talia drove me batty.

Tinker was a fabulous heroine. She had a bit of sassy and a bit of quirky that really worked for her. I really connected with her from the very beginning and watching her trying to fight her attraction to Gage was definitely highly entertaining.

All things considered, this still would have been a solid 4 star read for me...until the end. After all the build up with everything, nothing felt resolved. Things that truly needed page time and should have been fleshed out more, were handled off the pages. I felt I got no resolution to some of my biggest questions. There was a lot of build up with Tinker and her ex, and then...nothing. The author mentions at the end why she chose to deviate from the timeline, and I sincerely respect her choice. However, I felt that it could have gone a different direction while in that timeline. It read like it was almost two different plot points that were tied together, but not really. There was a lot of focus on the fire at the end, but none of it really led anywhere, particularly for the plot. It didn't drive the plot. At least not for me. A lot of the action happened off the pages. I wanted certain parts to be fleshed out more. Certain parts I wished were merely addressed or resolved, but they weren't. Not really. It was like chunks of story that loosely connected together.

I've loved every single book in this series and I adore all things Joanna Wylde, but I have to admit I wished more from the ending here. The epilogue was amazing and even managed to bring a tear to my eye. But once more, I just didn't feel like it fit the series. The whole book just had an entirely different vibe from the rest of the series for me. This can easily be a case of wrong expectations on my behalf. I still enjoyed the story for the most part, just left a little underwhelmed with the ultimate resolution of it. Fans of this series will likely enjoy the newest additions to the Reapers MC. I for one am really looking forward to more from the Silver Bastards now.

I love Joanna Wylde’s Reaper’s series. It’s one of my favorite biker series so anytime she has a new book, I’m always super excited to read it. Reaper’s Fire is Gage and Tinker’s book, and it’s one I’ve been patiently waiting for since I read Painter’s story.

Gage is a member of The Reaper’s MC, but he is going undercover as a man named Cooper. As Cooper, he is trying to infiltrate another MC gang that The Reaper’s feel are doing some bad things. His club needs him and he’ll do anything for the club. The thing is, doing what is needed for his MC is messing with his chances to be with a girl he’s met. Tinker Garrett isn’t just any girl to Gage. He’s seriously interested. With things the way they are now, he can’t go for her the way he wants. And it’s killing him.

 photo 35ABEFFA-4071-4C42-A988-CC773D8E1978_zpsdcseloos.jpg

Tinker is one of my favorite heroines of this series. I really felt for her and related to her more than a lot of the others. She was easy to connect to. I liked Gage a lot, too. I felt his struggle between wanting to do what his heart wanted and doing what he was called to do by loyalty to his club. He was in a hard place.

The first half of the book started a bit slow for me, but once it picked up, it really picked up! There were some parts later in the book that were seriously 5-star scenes. But there were also a few things I had issues with, along with some things in the end that felt really unresolved to me. I’m thinking maybe that it will resolve a bit in a future book? Either way, even though this wasn’t personally my favorite Reaper’s book, it was still a great read for me.

What I love most about these books is that Wylde knows how to perfectly balance the sweet and sexy with the raw and gritty. Every single book she does this to perfection. Some biker books are just too gritty you miss that romance aspect. Others are too sweet and it doesn’t even feel like a real biker book. She has a great formula with her books. It works. Whether it’s a Reaper’s book or a Silver Bastard’s book, they all have that great mix. If you’re looking for a great MC read, look no further than these books.

2 I-should've-stayed-asleep stars

Warning: This review/rant contains SPOILERS and copious SWEARING.


I was so excited for Gage and Tinker especially after reading their bit in the previous book. And I'm so fucking disappointed with this one I'm not sure how to articulate everything without swearing to hell and back. The writing was excellent and kept me engaged but the entirety of the plot just :

- 1 STAR

Because until 70% of the book we were still going over the plot of the previous book. I enjoyed reading some of it from Gage's POV and most of it from Tinker's POV but it wasn't necessary. We could have gotten Tinker's background without going over all of the events again.

- 1 STAR

Because until 60% Gage is still fucking Talia! And not just fade to black but with a few descriptive scenes. And his bedroom shares a wall with Tinker's so she's listening to it as well.
Add to that Gage is hitting on Tinker almost throughout his supposed relationship with Talia. Even going as far as kissing Tinker which gets interrupted by Talia walking in on them and going bonkers. Basically, high school drama with thirty year olds. And of course to save his cover he blames Tinker for hitting on him. Also he has sex with Tinker within days of finishing with Talia. I wouldn't have let him near me without demanding a clean health check after he dipped his junk in the skank. I couldn't enjoy their sex scenes. By the time I got over it, no more sex scenes as we reached the end of the book since it takes them to 80% to get together.

- 1 STAR

Because even after Talia is supposed to be out of the picture and Gage comes clean to Tinker, he still lets Talia drag him around wherever she wants. She barges in the restaurant to attack Tinker and Gage gets Talia out leaving Tinker all alone who in turn leaves. A while later she calls him and he makes Tinker step out so he could talk "privately" with Talia and this right after he had sex with Tinker.
She also calls him later on and he actually listens to her and sets up a meeting with Picnic. I mean for fucks sake just don't talk to the poisonous bitch.

Don't get me wrong I love Joanna Wylde and her Reapers series but this book is the very definition of filler. Huge let down. Even the so called twist at the end was something you could see coming from miles away. I know a lot of friends loved it and I can see why but for me personally it just didn't work. I wish I could get past all of this and enjoy the writing but I just couldn't.

Before making up your mind please read other more positive reviews. Whatever didn't work for me might work for you so please don't let me stop you from reading this.

{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

I have two favorite MC series, The Hades Hangmen by Tillie Cole, and of course The Reaper’s MC by Joanna Wylde. I pretty much have loved each installment. These men are seriously hardcore Alpha Males and when they fall in love with a woman, they don’t do it halfway. They will do whatever it takes to own their women, body, and soul. The MC means everything to them but when it comes down to it, nothing is more important to them than the women who own their hearts.

 photo RFTEASER2_zpsungcokl7.jpg

I was really excited about Gage and Tinker when we were given a little sneak peek into their world in the bonus epilogue at the end of Reaper’s Fall. I think that most of the storyline takes place prior to and might coincide with some of the incidents that occurred during the previous book. I have to mention that Gage is dating another woman in this story and they do have sex several times, but he’s undercover and completely despises the woman he is pretending to be into. I know this will still piss off some readers, and while I was a bit peeved, it didn’t hinder my enjoyment.

Gage is living in Hallie’s Falls under the alias of Cooper Romero. His mission is to infiltrate a local MC that has been involved in some shady business. Gage’s way in was to hook up with Talia, the sister of the Nighthawk Raider’s President. Talia is young and just a tad bit psychotic. This is definitely not a dream assignment for Gage. He also lands a job as a handyman at a local apartment building that is owned by Tinker Garrett. She turns him on more than any other woman he’s ever known. He’s completely screwed because he can’t act on his attraction to Tinker due to his undercover work with the local MC.

 photo RFTEASER5_zpsooxl337l.jpg

Tinker only just moved back to Hallie’s Falls during recent months. She has filed for divorce from her husband who was pretty much a douche. She’s taking care of her family’s business and her father, who has been suffering from occasional memory loss. When she meets Gage for the first time, he definitely has her hormones raging out of control. But his connection to the Nighthawk Riders and Talia has her steering clear of him.

 photo Previously_sent_RFTEASER8_zpsny1qjbtm.jpg

It took quite a long time before these two finally give in to their attraction to each other and I really thought I was going to die from the anticipation. When they finally do get down to the schmexy it was definitely worth the wait but call me greedy, I wish there were a lot more of these scenes! I mean throughout the entire book, we know that Gage is one seriously HOT looking alpha male and I just wanted more of the down and dirty time with him!!!

Overall this was a very enjoyable read, low on the schmexy for my tastes, but still pretty good. I loved the epilogue. It wasn’t what I was expecting and I found it to be super heart-warming.

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Type: Standalone Book 6 of Reapers MC series
POV: First Person - Dual

Gage was a long time loyal Reapers. As the manager of their strip club, he wanted to do something different so he volunteered to spy on their support MC for possible corruption. His new job took him to the small town of Hallies Falls as Cooper Romero, a trucker looking for a new start.

Tinker Garret moved from Seattle to get away from her useless husband. She came back to her hometown to be with her ailing dad and took care of her apartment building while continuing her gourmet chocolate business. Gage needed a place and a cover job, while Tinker needed a handyman and had an empty apartment. A deal was made. But as attraction grew, she started to realize it was much more than what she signed up for.

I don't read a lot of MC series but the Reapers is one of my favorite and it's always good to go back to it and learn more about the characters.

Reapers forever, forever Reapers.
Sometimes loyalty sucks.

Gage was among my favorite especially after the last book. I love seeing how he was conflicted with choosing club loyalty or personal desire. He sacrificed for them a lot and I've always love the dynamics between the brothers.

I didn't like Tinker in previous book because she seemed slutty lol! But my opinion definitely changed as I knew her better. She was a good responsible person and I love her relationship with her best friend.

There was a lot if things going on in the story. The first 50% or so, Gage was on his own. It made me missed the rest of the crew. The romance was also lacking in the first half. But as the story progressed further this changed and it was good to have the previous characters back.

Reaper's Fire is a story of two individual meeting at unlikely timing, learning to trust each other and overcoming both people and nature's fury.

4-4,5 STARS

"Reapers forever,forever Reapers.
Sometimes loyalty sucks."

Gage and Tinker's story was the most intrigued and entertaining story I have read so far!!I was a little bit disappointed with the previous book and I was hesitant about this one. I loved the storyline and the characters were the best part on the story, especially Cage!


In this story Cage has gone undercover for the Reaper's. He needs a low profile to do his job, so he finds work as a handyman in Tinker's place. You can feel their attraction when these two are together. Seriously I had butterflies every time these two were together! At first they built a friendship but they couldn't resist their attraction to each other...


"But she wanted me as much as I wanted her. And yeah, I realize that makes me sound like an egotistical ass, but this wasn’t my first rodeo. I saw the lust in her eyes, and the way she licked her lips and stared at my mouth. "

Love both Tinker and Cage!Cage was a swoon worthy sexy hero and Tinker was exactly what he needs!She was smart,sweet,hot and lovable!One of the best part in the story was the dual POVS.These two had their intense and super hot moments!

My only complaint was for the last part of the story it felt a little rushed in my opinion! Overall it was an enjoyable story!

Gage, aka Cooper, would do anything for his club. They're like family to him, so going undercover for them is the leas he could do. That it, until he's around Tinker Garrett and realizes she's a temptation he almost can't resist. But he has to stay away for the sake of his club, even if it kills him to see her hurt expression every time he walks away from her to be with another girl.

Tinker is back home after her mothers death to take care of her father and the apartments he owns. When Cooper comes to town and takes the job as her maintenance man and movies in, it's just the bit of extra spice she needs in her life. Then she realizes he's looking for someone a bit younger, and bitchier. So she keeps her fantasy trysts to herself and lusts from afar. But there are secrets she doesn't know, and when she finds them out she's not sure if she's going to kick him off her property, or take him to bed.

This almost never happens, and in fact I think it's only happened one other time, but I liked the heroine more than the hero. Crazy, I know, but it's true. I felt like we didn't get to know enough about Gage for me to ever warm up to him completely so I was mostly indifferent about him. Sure he was hot as hell, but I still needed a little more when it came to him.

Tinker, though, I really enjoyed getting to know. She was so strong to move back home and help her father all while going though a divorce from the douchiest ex out there. She really stuck up for herself throughout this book and wouldn't settle for anything expect what she deserved, and I admired that about her character.

I wish we would have seen more of Tinker and Gage together, but what we did get of them I loved. They were so sexy with one another and I loved the raw passion they had. The chemistry between the two was very strong, so even while they were trying to avoid each other you could still see how much they wanted to be together. I enjoyed getting get their story once it all came together, even with how much I craved more of it.

Overall, this is a brilliant book about two people that shouldn't want one another trying to avoid the passion that was forcing them together. I think any fan of a sexy biker book will like this one as much as I did, and I can't wait for everyone to get to read it.

2 that was a disaster stars.

* * * SPOILERS AHEAD (but too pissed to care) * * *

I am so damn disappointed in this book. I had such high hopes for it, and they fell flat. When I read a romance I want it to be about THAT couple, not have to read for 75% about him banging some other biker bitch. Nope, no way! There was no romance whatsoever, FFS they didn't even say the obligatory "I love you's" unless I blinked and missed them.

They didn't get together until right at the end of the book, and even that was more of a bang fest as they only got one night together before the fire drama kicked in. I read the author's note so got why she threw that in there but it. Didn't. Work!! Why? It took away the only little bit we got to see of them as a couple to focus on fighting fires. The Talia thing should have been done with in the first third of the book, not dragged out as long as it was.

Which brings me to the honking huge plot hole left with Talia. WTF?? The nastiest piece of work just fades away into the ether never to be heard of again or get her just deserts?? Nope, that SO didn't work for me. Then there's the Brandon issue, another one that faded into the freaking ether with no real resolution.

I also felt so cheated with the Joy plot line, that seemed to just be randomly thrown in there without being built on. That was an EPIC plot line that should have been fleshed out way, way more than an aside in the freaking epilogue. Again .... WTF???

Loved the first half of the book, loved Tinker and her friends but hated ..... HATED Gage and the stunts he pulled throughout the majority of the book. I think I'm being overly generous with my 2 pissed as hell stars.

It’s not secret I am a fan of Joanna Wylde, she is one of my all-time favorite writers of motorcycle club books. I have said in many of my reviews that I love this world she has created and how easily I find myself immersed in her books.

Reaper’s Fire is Gage and Tinker’s story. The only reason Gage and Tinker even meet is because he is in town doing work for the club. This is what ultimately brings them together and keeps them apart. Gage’s loyalty to the club is on point, but he struggles with his developing feelings for Tinker. He is undercover which involves dating someone else. So to keep his persona going he has to build a web of lies and sell it to everyone he meets.

Tinker didn’t grow up in the club life and doesn’t even understand the lifestyle. Her only interaction or experience with MC life is the corrupt club in town, the reason Gage is there. Tinker also has her own issues and demons she is running from.

These two have so much to overcome and at times it felt like too much. I think this may have just been my issue, but it felt like all the little things were overwhelming. While I love her books, that’s no secret, this is one of my least favorite in the series. I am not even sure why, to be honest, but at times it just felt slow. I didn’t feel that same buy-in I usually feel to the series. I think that may stem from the fact it takes place away from the club.

Regardless, I am still a fan of this series and absolutely recommend reading this one if you are too. I am still anxious to see what comes next for the Reapers.

Gage aka Cooper Romero is a 38 yr. old biker from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. He has been with the Reaper's MC for the past 19 years. He would do anything for his club, so when they need someone to go undercover, Gage and his club brother Painter head to Hallies Falls, in Washington State. They both have to play a role to get inside a local motorcycle club & try to get information they need. Deciding the club presidents sister would be a good in for them, Gage pursues her.

While in Hallies Falls, Gage poses as a long-haul trucker, & takes a job as a handyman in exchange for free rent & an apartment. His new landlady is Tinker Garrett. She is gorgeous & Gage is seriously hot for her, but he can't act on his attraction. He is supposed to do his job & then go home.

Tinker is extremely attracted to Gage. She wants her new maintenance guy bad, but doesn't know if he's interested. She has such a lousy track record with men. After a failed marriage & devastating loss, she moved back home to care for her dad, & help run their family owned apartment building. She has a successful business selling gourmet chocolates, but hasn't had much luck lately in the men department.

It's killing Gage that he can't have Tinker because of his commitments to the club. For the first time he's found a woman he not only lusts for, but he really respects. He truly likes Tinker as a person & enjoys her company. As the sexual tension explodes between these two, they begin to have trouble containing their desire for one another.

 photo C47DF419-3B45-4815-BD7C-02608F001E65_zpsvy6wjwc9.jpg

Things get complicated when Gage's lies are out in the open & the club and everyone close to them is in danger from their enemies. I really enjoyed this book & love this whole series.

Congratulations Joanna Wylde! You officially get the LE permanent seal of disapproval on this one!

Major spoilerage below people:

So Ms. Wylde. I'll speak to you in biker chick speak again, so you understand.

Listen Bitch, just because you wrote ONE fabulous book ( Reaper's Property ((I still love you Horse!)) doesn't mean you can string us along now and not give us a romance book we thought we paid for. Because Bitch, there was no romance here. You've got our biker with his dick in a skanky psychopath hoe for 75% of this book. While our supremely bangable heroine is sitting on the sideline having to watch while baking caramels. He's an asshole. Nothing hot about him. I'm paying you for hot biker, bitch! You didn't deliver that product.

Then, when they finally get together you taint that too. Because the baby you have them adopt? It could possibly be the skanky psychopath hoe's niece? The father could be the loser club president our hero was sent to take down?! No. No fucking way Bitch.

And another thing. For the last fucking time.....a woman in her thirties is NOT OLD. I want to shank the keyboard you typed this shit on. At least ten times in this book you refer to anyone not in their 20's as old. You get bitchslapped one too many times? Because your head isn't thinking straight.

So now I'm going to have to CUT you Bitch.........right off my automatic buy list!

My husband said this one failed because I’ve been reading too many non-pornos lately. I say it failed because it was fucking stupid.

So the premise here was that “Cooper” (real name Gage, but he’s going all incognito) has moved to town in order to infiltrate one of the various “mini clubs” or whatever the hell they call them. His way of getting access is by infiltrating the vagina of the sister of the miniclub’s President as well as a cover story that he’s going through a rocky divorce and wants to be close to his (imaginary) kids. He takes a job with Tinker (these effing names man, I’m telling you) as a handyman of the apartment complex she owns in exchange for free rent and some under-the-counter pay and immediately wants to do things like stick his finger up her butt (his words not mine), but can’t because the whole “LET’S DO IT FOR JOHNNY, MAN!” - errrrr, I mean let’s do it for the Club plotline.

So I figured I’d end up liking this just fine even with all the shenanigans. But then basically dudebrah banged some other chick for a solid half of the book before the two MCs got together and immediately flipped the script from being a real pussy slayer to a one woman man who wanted Tinker as his “old lady.” Not to mention the supposed superbaddanger reason for Gage/Cooper being sent to town to begin with wrapped up in about one page with pretty much zero details of WTF was even so terrible. (Please note I’ve read #1 and #4 of this series and this was #6 so all this shit was probably talked about in the missing volumes, but I do what I want and the term “series” has always been super loose in these types of pornos - meaning they should all work as standalones since they focus on different people each time.)

I appreciate the author trying something different, but it just didn’t work for me at all. And basically it was Gage/Cooper’s fault. I’m all for alpha males when it’s a story where they either ride motorbikes or howl at moon a few days a month, but this dude?????

Not only was half the book spent dealing with a gross attitude that “a wet hole was a wet hole” (again, his words not mine), but when he finally decided to come clean to Tinker he was more than a little too sure of himself (*cough* kind of rapey *cough*) forcing Tinker to have quite the Thelma and Louise moment . . . .

Not to mention his inner dialogue said things like how it . . .

“Imagined shoving a piece of caramel up her cunt just so I could suck it back out again.”

Probably also really unsanitary.

And there was also the issue of . . .

“Fire exploded as my dick met her stomach. I started grinding against her.”


I would give Reaper’s Fire 1 Star were it not for Tinker. Dumbfuck name and the fact that she ended up falling victim to the Magic Penis aside, she was my idea of a good female lead. Not only did she run her own successful business as well as ditch the zero who was her ex-husband, but she also cracked me up when dealing with the rumor mill which comes with small town living . . . .

“Yet another woman I’d gone to school with, because, God knows, you wouldn’t want to have any fucking privacy!”

“They could all kiss my ass.”

★★★★ 4 Stars ★★★★

Reapers MC is without a doubt my top favourite biker series, every single book makes me eager to read more about all the different characters within, and Gage's book has been quite highly anticipated for me.

Gage has been running the club's strip club for years now, with access to as many ladies as he can get his hands on, he can be described as a ladies man, but he's not getting any younger and is keen to leave that chapter of his life behind.

"Yes, I'd been sick of managing the Reapers MC's strip club and I'd wanted a change of pace. But I'd also wanted to leave the crazy bitch-drama behind."

He is sent undercover to investigate some troubles that a rival MC are causing in a small town in Washington, which he infiltrates by bedding the president's slutty and mercenary sister. Whilst he is trying to bring down the gang and their shady dealings, he meets a classy lady called Tinker Garrett, who is just can't seem to resist, even though he needs to remain in a relationship with his awful girlfriend in order to be loyal to his brothers.

Tinker was an interesting lady, fresh out of a failed marriage, she makes fancy chocolates for a living and is caring for her ailing father after the death of her beloved mother. She feels a strong attraction towards her new handyman and tenant, but is very cautious to get too close.

I love a slow burn, and that's exactly what we got here - the fact that Gage had a girlfriend did not bother me in the slightest because we know how he is feeling towards Tinker from very early on, and lets face it, in a motorcycle club your brothers come first and since he only just met the woman, it was completely realistic for him to complete what he set out to do before moving onto a relationship with the woman he was genuinely falling for.

Great personalities, good chemistry and plenty of sexual tension. A great read for me.

Reapers Fire is a standalone romance told in dual POV, but best to be read as part of the series for the full experience.

Hot Motorcycle Man!

The following ratings are out of 5:
Narration: 🎧🎧🎧🎧
Romance: 💙💚
Heat/Steam: 🔥🔥
Story/Plot: 📕📗📘📙
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎
Character development: 😳🤬😏🙃

The heroine: Tinker - in the process of divorcing her husband who cared more about his work than he did her. She recently moved to her home town after her mother died and father started going downhill fast. She is now managing the apartment building her family owned, running the tea shop her mother owned and running her own gourmet chocolate company.

The Hero(s): Gage - longtime member of the Reapers motorcycle club, Gage is undercover as a man named Cooper and gets a job as a handyman at the apartment building Tinker owns. He is trying to infiltrate the local MC that owes the Reapers money and haven’t been paying up. He plans to infiltrate by dating Talia, the sister of one of the club members.

The Story: Tinker is going through a rough time when Gage comes around. She appreciates his hotness but knows that he is dating someone else. The girl he is dating is younger, thinner and a bit scary so she knows she has no chance. Little does she know, Gage is so much more attracted to Tinker than to the woman he is supposed to be seeing. But he needs information for his club, and can’t give up his cover while he is still investigating this club.

I have liked this series in the past and this book had a very original story for an MC romance. I also love the MC romance where the heroine isn’t already in the MC life. Though I like younger heroines. Tinker is 40 and the town thinks she is a cradle robber because of a drunken weekend with her gals when she was caught in the intimate moment with a much younger man.

Another thing I didn’t like about this one was the fact that the Hero spends more time knocking boots with the girl he is fake dating and hates, than the woman he is crushing on. But overall, the story is good so I did enjoy the book and the narration was good as well. Sean Crisden and Tatiana Sokolov did a great job and I love it when an audiobook has dual narration.

"Reapers forever, forever Reapers. Sometimes loyalty sucks."

Gage's mission was simple: hook up with the traitor's sister. Sounded easy enough ... he had this in the bag. But what he didn't plan on was falling for his landlady, Tinker.

Now he has to 'just get through it. Do it for [his] brothers - they've risked their lives for [him], they've served time for [him]. Now [he has to] suck it up and do what [he has] to do.'

The second half of the book is where I couldn't put it down. I needed to know how Gage was going to stay faithful to his club duties while he had the hots for Tinker.

Once the story ends don't miss the author's note at the end of the book. I live a state away from where this story takes place so our state suffers from the same thing. While reading REAPER'S FIRE I felt like I was going through it with the characters. Those moments were intense and added to the overall story.

As always another enjoyable Reaper story!

Reapers forever. Forever Reapers. Sometimes loyalty sucks.

This book was one of my most anticipated books this year. I love this MC world. I have a wet spot for bikers of all kinds. If it’s a biker book, I’ll read it. I have been a fangirl of Joanna Wylde from the beginning.

My Gage:

TAYLOR DAVID. People. Bearded. Beards. Men. Hot Guys. Dapper. Real. Rugged. Indie. Alt. Style. Handsome. Photo. Long Hair.:

My Tinker:

Blunt Messy Bob, long bangs. I love how blunt this looks without looking heavy:

The start of this book was super hot. I was digging Gage and his insta-attraction to Tinker. Gage comes to town to spy on a rival motorcycle club. He has to make up a fake identity, get a job, and date a skank in the rival club. He begins working for Tinker as a handyman. Gage is my kinda biker – quiet & rough & easy on the eyes. I love a good dirty-talker, and his dirty-talk was flawless.

à la Mode St. » fashion

”I’ve been watching you twitch that ass of yours for too long,” I whispered. “You sit out on that pretty little porch of yours with your friend. You pretend you aren’t scoping me out, but you are. You’ve wanted it bad for a long time, and now you’re gonna get it.”

à la Mode St. » fashion

Tinker MADE this book for me! I loved her. Despite everything she put up with regarding her ex and the huge loss in her life, she decided to start fresh and move home to help take care of her father. She was stomped on by multiple people in this book, but it didn’t get her down, and I loved that. I wish that Gage and Tinker could have had more of the book to be together.

à la Mode St. » fashion

I turned, catching the back of her head and pulling her in for a hard kiss, because fuck loyalty.

à la Mode St. » fashion

The DRAMA – Talia – She got me ALL riled up. I was like….guuuurl…you crazy. There was just too much of Talia for me. It sucked that Gage had to put up with her for so long. It sucked that I had to put with her for so long.

Something happened in the book that gave me pause on my overall rating. A couple times during the book, I found myself wondering WHY the dialogue kept going. I would prefer the plot move forward rather than people standing around talking about the plot moving forward. I feel as if this might be the most that can be done with this series. I am happy that there is a spin-off series with the Silver Bastards.

Going into this I knew that there were going to be elements I didn't like but as I do like the Reapers series I didn't want to fall back on the series by missing a book. I won't make a long review but I will say Gage with Talia scenes were just disgusting and really took away whatever special feelings he was supposedly developing for Tinker. When you have Gage really hating Talia but getting turned on by her in numerous little sex scenes, well I have to say I didn't feel his attraction for Tinker one damn bit! When Gage thinks about how Talia is so good with bjs and then we have scenes where all she has to do is touch his dick and he's up for a shag with her well again I didn't feel how Tinker was so special to him. It's all ok to think he's doing all this for the club and how much he hates Talia but when you have scene after scene with him having sexual thoughts and feelings for her nearly up until the end of the book then I call bullshit on his supposed sacrifice when he was getting his rocks off right under Tinker's hearing. Let's also not forget how when Talia attacked Tinker to pacify Talia he had to have sex with her, yeah when he thinks thoughts like how he hates her but his body loves what she does, oh and other thoughts like he may hate her but his dick is obviously a slut because to it one wet hole is the same as the other, yeah he really did sound like he was suffering! This guy was repulsive he had no redeeming qualities about him and I think officially he is my most hated male lead of the series so far. I did like Tinker but I will say that I didn't like how she was practically gagging for Gage knowing he had a girlfriend, I know Gage was pretending but Tinker didn't know that so I think it cheapened her that she was willing to sleep with him knowing he was attached. Gage proved to be a shithead he even made a light joke towards the end how Tinker mustn't have liked the idea he was having sex with Talia right under her nose.....yeah that's really hilarious. I give 2 stars because the writing was good but I can't give anything more as I really didn't respect either mc's. This book is definite NO No to all safety gang members, I can tolerate a few things but Gage made me gag with disgust.

If anyone asks me what my favorite MC romance series is, Reaper's MC by Joanna Wylde would be my answer. That was true then, and it still stands true now. That said, I didn't quite love Reaper's Fire as much as I did the others.

Reaper's Fire is Gage and Tinker's story. And it runs parallel to Reaper's Fall. If you haven't read that book, I suggest you read it prior to reading this because a lot of the backstory of Gage and his mission in Tinker's town was discussed in that book.

I actually loved the premise of this book. Gage is sent to spy on and get closed to an MC that's been giving the Reaper's trouble in one of their territories. Gage's "in" was the sister of the MC president. Both the president and the sister are running the MC to the ground, and Gage must try to diffuse the situation long enough for the Reaper's come in. Complicating his mission is Tinker Garret. Gage is attracted to her and wants her, but since he has to pretend to be with the sister of the MC president, he can't really do that.

Like I said, I liked the premise. And while I understand that other readers might not be able to get over the fact that Gage is with someone else for pretty much 50% to 60% of the book. And by someone else, I mean that in the biblical sense as well. Yes, it's just an act and he doesn't really have feelings for her but it is what it is. I wasn't so much bothered by it because I understood what was at stake. I mean, he could've stopped prior to 50% but whatever, I was able to deal with it.

What bothered more was the pacing and the weak climax. The climax of the book was at around 60% or so. After that, the conflict with the local club was pretty much neutralized and the forest fires that were ravaging the countryside became the "main" obstacle.

I appreciate that Ms. Wylde incorporated that into her storyline. It gave the book another layer of realism and grit but in terms of conflict and climax, it was a let down. Hence the lower rating. It also didn't help matters that the romance between Tinker and Gage kind of just settled without a really great confrontation. I would've loved to see Tinker drag Talia by the hair and kicked her ass. It didn't really happen.

I did love the epilogue but as far as the overall story, I feel like this one was her weakest yet.

This book draws a lot of different feelings from me, there were things I really liked about the story and the MCs, and things I really hated about both.

I've got a unique perspective of this story, I live in Spokane, one exit away from Idaho, and have for the majority of my life. I've always felt a special bond to these books, they are describing places I see on a daily basis, and it has endeared me to this band of bikers. I lived through this horrible fire season, and have several family members that are Forrest Service firefighters, my first cousin was on the Okanogan Complex Fire and stationed with the crew that lost the three fireman. It was an awful time here in our state, so when these events were happening in the book I could picture it all over again. It felt real.

I think Gage, or specifically when he was Cooper, has been my least favorite of the Reaper men. I didn't like a lot of the things he did and the way he acted through the majority of the book. However, when I was reading away, I had to keep reminding myself that he was doing all of those things inspite of himself, for the family he loved and was loyal to. I think when I looked at it that way I was able to get past issues that are usually huge, no-go and deal breakers for me. Gage put his loyalty to his brothers and family before his wants, that being said, I could have used a hell of a lot less Talia in this book...that is for damn sure.

The ending was so sentimental and it really touched me. I enjoyed seeing into the future, it didn't feel like we got much of Gage and Tinker (worst name ever) together in this book, so to see them later on felt nice and endeared them to me as a couple. I'm interested to see what happens to Gage that was alluded to in the last of the epilogue and I would have loved a little resolution to Tinker and Brandon's situation, but I'm guessing that will all go down in the next book....I would have loved to see psycho Talia get what she was due, but again I'm guessing that too is to come.

Before the book was released...

I heard there was another new Reaper's book...And I was

Then I heard June 2016....and I was

I can't wait for this lying Reaper....Tinker watch out....he said he's coming for you!!!

3.5 ★'s

Gage has come to Hailies Falls ~undercover~ to check on the NightHawks. The MC has been acting off and they haven't been paying The Reapers what they're due.

His "in" is with the president's sister, Talia. Gage's has never been one to shy away from an easy woman but luckily for him, he meets Tinker Garrett. And lucky for her, he becomes her handyman.

Gage, aka Cooper, has never felt things like this for a woman and is a little taken back. He has to stay away from her to maintain his "relationship" with Talia. This is one of the thorns of the book, granted we are talking about a motorcycle club here but it was hard to take reading about his sexual exploits with Talia. Even worse was his bedroom wall butted up against Tinker's...and she heard everything.

But Tinker has her own issues that take up a lot of her time. She's in the middle of a divorce, her father's memory is failing and her gourmet chocolate/caramel business is taking off but hitting snags along the way.


This book almost felt like two stories in one for me. The first sixty-plus percent was all about Gage's undercover work and what's going on with the Nighthawks. I didn't really care about it that much but I did like Gage's interactions with Picnic.

After the sixty-plus percent, we finally get to the good stuff but unfortunately again, another situation takes over and it's all the fires in Washington state. It was a bit intense to read...I cannot imagine going through all that. But...it took away from Gage and Tinker's relationship time.

Their story does end well but a bit surprising at that little turn. And the epilogue was sweet.

I did read a bit of news from Joanna Wylde that this is the last contracted book with Berkley and she's not sure where she's going to go after this. There is a novella about Shade coming up in the 1001 Dark Nights series but after that, who knows? Luckily, she is writing some other things so I'm looking forward to that.

We were introduced to Gage and his potential love interest Tinker in the previous book with Painter. Gage was tasked with an undercover job to infiltrate the rival MC club, Nighthawk. You would have thought only the law enforcement will resort to this kind of tactic.

Anyway, going in I already knew Gage was using his magic dick on Talia, who is the Nighthawk President's sister. Thus, having to read about him whoring himself out for his club is a foregone conclusion and I don't even mind. But what irked me was that his so-called relationship with Talia lasted too long, way passed the half mark, which lead to less time being together with the actual heroine. I don't want to enter into slut-shaming zone, but Talia is not a girl you will sympathize with. And with her wild and crazy nature, I was surprised she didn't ditched his ass sooner.

As for the heroine Tinker, who is in the midst of a messy divorced, is an owner of a small business, while taking care of her ailing dad. I supposed Tinker is quite alright, she hired Gage as a handyman and spent most of her time lusting after him. I don't blame the woman, since she is not seeing any action for sometime.

As for Gage and Tinker, due to Gage being Talia's boyfriend, they can't do much beside of lusting each other secretly. All this simmering sexual tension was then dragged on for too long, as per reason aforementioned.

When Gage finally free to pursue Tinker, I kind of lost hope in them. He didn't actually gave Tinker a good reason for banging Talia for so long and now coming on to her saying he wanted to claim her. Being really hot and gorgeous can't be that strong a reason. Being an undercover for a MC club? That sounds kind of messed up and complicated. I have a rare moment of wickedness that I wish Tinker actually went out and sleep with someone else instead of making it look as if she is waiting for Gage.

I don't want to talk much on the problem on Nighthawk and what the Reaper been up to. I was only happy enough that Hunter showed up for a few scenes. Overall, Reaper's Fire didn't manage to fire me up.

4.5★★★★ HOT stars

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Type: Standalone Book 6 of Reapers MC series
POV: First Person - Dual


Tinker Garret was married to a man who only cared about his carrier and his name. When tragedy strikes and Tinker lost her baby; the only thing she wanted so badly. She realized she finally had enough of putting up with the man she thought cared for her and she ended her married. However; he didn't wanted to let go for his image of course he only cared about what the publicity would think of him so he lied to everyone after over a year of being separated that they were still together.

Gage has been a member of the Reapers Club for a long time now; so when he was asked to move to investigate another club he didn't hesitate to accept the challenge. He had to pretend he was in love with Talia; a twenty some year old slut who was his only connection to getting close to the other club. She was so annoying I really wanted to hurt her but Gage couldn't stand her either so I loved him for it. However; his duties was to his Club first and he had to deal with it until her.

Falling in love was defiantly not on Gage's agenda specially when his Club was in the line but he still could resist and couldn't stop the feelings he was developing for his new landlord Tinker. She lusted over him as well and let me tell you the sexual tension was so strong I was going out of my mind. However; when he finally told her the truth and decided to claim her as his property; well it was super-hot and intense.

""I've been suffocating, waiting for you, and I don't think you've had it any easier"

I was missing my bikers and I truly enjoyed this book. There was drama in the town, I was laughing so hard with Tinker's best friends comments and the chemistry between Gage and Tinker was inevitable; super-hot and steamy. There was definitely club business, action, suspense and I absolutely devoured this story in one setting. To all of my biker lovers and everyone who is following this series I hope you enjoy this ride, I truly did.

Gage is loyal to his brotherhood, the Reapers MC, so when he’s asked to go undercover to find out what is going on with the Nighthawk Raiders in Washington, a supposed alley MC to the Reaper’s, Gage agrees. As part of his cover he takes on a handy-man job, as Cooper Romero, in exchange for housing in Tinker Garrett’s apartment complex. Gage is immediately taken with Tinker, and he senses she wants him too, but he’ll have to put all that on the back burner, because the quickest way into the Nighthawks Motorcycle club is dating Talia Jackson, the club president’s sister. Still, while pretending with Talia, every hour he spends working for and with Tinker brings them closer and closer, and Talia notices, putting Tinker in danger.

Tinker is overseeing her family’s rental properties while healing from a bad divorce, and caring for her ailing father. Cooper (Gage) blows into her life and turns everything upside down. Tinker was just such a nice and genuine person, but not a pushover either, and I immediately loved her character! Even though Gage was a force to be reckoned with, Tinker had some spine, too. Also, she didn’t let the Cooper/Gage situation overtake her every thought and life. Tinker was definitely more than attracted, but tried to keep it platonic seeing as he had a girlfriend (even if that girlfriend was the daughter of Satan!).

I do wish Tinker and Gage got together sooner instead of Gage having to pretend with Talia for so long. However, there was never any doubt on Gage’s side that he was only doing his duty to the club and that he completely despised Talia the whole time. Tinker didn’t know Gage’s inner thoughts, and so couldn’t understand why a seemingly nice guy could stoop so low as to screw Talia, even if she was hot, because Talia was so evil! I hurt for Tinker every time she had to witness them together! Little did Tinker know is that Gage was just biding his time until he could claim her.

When the truth comes out, Gage has a lot of explaining to do. I know he was supposed to be doing it for the club, but come on! He hurt Tinker and lied to her, and in my mind it didn’t need to go on quite so long. I just knew if I were in Tinker’s shoes it would take me some time to wrap my head around the whole situation. But, still, Gage was tortured having to keep himself back from Tinker. He fell for her a little more every day spent as her tenant/handy man, so even though he did hurt Tinker, I couldn’t help but feel bad and fall for him, too.

I will say if you haven’t read Painter and Melanie’s story, Reaper's Fall (the last book, #5), yet, you may want to read this one first and then Reaper’s Fall because Talia and her brother’s story concludes more fully in Reaper’s Fall. I went back and read a bunch of scenes, because I forgot so much that happened, and trust me, a lot happens! I felt like all the loose ends in Reaper’s Fire were nice and tied in Reaper’s Fall.

I gobbled this story up, reading it in one day to find out what happens. I had been picking up books and setting them aside trying to find a story that would hold my interest when I decided to pick up Reaper’s Fire and I was hooked! This story was raw and ugly in parts, but completely riveting! Joanna Wylde certainly doesn’t present a heart-n-flowers sort of romance with her Reapers MC series. Her romances are more primal, gritty, all-consuming, and I can't wait for the next one!

** 3-3.5 STARS **

“When you look back at this moment, I want you to remember there was a BEFORE I claimed you and an AFTER. Now it’s after. You got me?”


The club ALWAYS comes first. No matter what.

Even if -for the first time in your life- you're actually feeling something MORE than just lust for a woman... Even if you are disgusted by the idea of ever touching another... Even if you might lose her at the end, and when your duty is over...it might be too late.

So what you gotta do is, try to stay the f*ck away from said woman, or at least...TRY TO, and focus on doing what you gotta do for your club.


Gage and Tinker were amazing characters, no problem there. But the rest was...well, not as great as we've been used to in J. Wylde books.

Firstly, there is another woman. An incredibly annoying, b*tchy and immature one. One that just wouldn't freakin' GO AWAY! You WILL get irritated. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Secondly, the flow of the the plot gets so confusing at some point. Lots of things are happening at the same time. They are insistently highlighted by the author and then...NOTHING. Absolutely nothing happens. All the conflicts are left in the air. All questions are left unanswered. It felt weird. The idea is brilliant, as always, but this story didn't exactly work for me.

OVERALL: I still enjoyed the slow-building romance between Gage and Tinker, and the luminously structured MC atmosphere J. Wylde never fails to reflect.

Ok, it's not Christmas Eve, it's Christmas night. And it's 3 30 am and I'm sitting and reading this book.
This should tell you something! I loved loved loved it! I've had an awful luck with books lately but if they existed just so that I could get to this one, it was worth it!

I missed this series so much, dunno why I waited so long to read this book. The 400 pages scared me, I admit, thought it'll be boring and long and I'm never in a mood for long, boring books. But this was absolutely great! I never even thought about checking to see how much I had left. It was damn exciting!

And the characters! God, the characters!

You all have to read it! Really, it's one of the best in this series! So stop being lazy and get to work!

While reading Reaper's Fire I had a like/dislike relationship with the story.

I loved Tinker she was COOL but I can't believe I'm writing this but I only liked Gage I think it was Gage fucking Taila while lusting after Tinker after all isn't this suppose to be a romance between Ticker and Gage???


The sexual chemistry between Tinker and Gage I could feel it through my kindle and the anticipation of when they would FINALLY get together had me hooked.

The banter between Gage and Picnic (Pic's my favourite of the Reaper's) they are funny and caring in their biker way.

Gage to Hunter
“She pretty wild in the sack?” I asked, shooting a sly glance toward my president. Pic stiffened. “Shut your fucking mouth. We’re not having a conversation about my daughter’s sex life. Ever.”

Tinker and Carrie together are hilarious the things that Carrie would say made me LOL a few times.

“We’ve covered my stalkerishness before, so let’s keep moving here. We’ll throw darts at the picture and curse all men. It’ll be fun.” “We don’t need to curse Darren.” “Not unless he pisses me off between now and then,” she said brightly. “But if he does, all bets are off. So, dinner?”

The fire drama had me gripped what was going to happen next.

Wow what a prologue poor Tinker she's one tough cookie.

The epilogue was sweet and a surprise.


Gage being with Talia for most of the story YUCK.

Taila what a skanky bitchy whore and how dare she call Tinker a whore when she fucks around while with Gage.

I was disappointed with her outcome I wanted her DEAD I knew she was behind the clubhouse thing so no surprise there.

The Marsh/Nighthawks drama got boring to the point that I started to skim the club business.

The Brandon situation was also disappointing all that talk that led to nothing I wanted more.

So this was a fifty/fifty for me Reaper's Fire was anticlimactic.

Thank you to PENGUIN for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

First and foremost, I love the continuity this series offers. Every time I pick up a Reaper’s MC book, I’m guaranteed one hell of a ride. Reaper’s Fire fell right in line! And I know, I know. I say this every time I finish one of these books, but I don’t think I’ve loved a book so much since Reaper’s Property. (What can I say? Horse was my first, and you never forget your first. And in true Horse fashion he steals every scene he’s in.) It might have been Tinker and Gage’s story, but this book gave us a bigger glimpse of club life than previous books. Especially showing the reader how far these men will go and what they’re willing to give up for their club. There were a lot of conversations between Gage and Picnic, and it wasn’t all serious. Pic loves to rib his men, and some of those talks were hilarious. It was a nice break from what was otherwise an incredibly intense read. I also feel like this book, more than the others, highlighted the importance of the women in the club.

Tinker had a great support system; I loved her friends. Carrie could be a little wayward with her stalking tendencies, but it was all in good fun and made for a good read. She adored her father and took care of him, and she was a business woman with a good head on her shoulders. Scrappy to the core, she tried to fight Gage and her attraction, but you know you can only resist a reaper for so long. And Gage…oh, Gage. Surprisingly, Gage had to fight harder against his feelings for Tinker than she did her feelings for him. The attraction was undeniable, but he had to put her on the back burner until club business was taken care of. And there was some heavy duty, scary things happening in this book. But the author manages to write in a way where it feels authentic to the lifestyle and the plot. Nothing in Reaper’s Fire was for pure shock value. As usual, the steam was off the charts, and as far as Gage was concerned, there was no going back after that.

I have to say that I really loved the backdrop of the forest fire through this one. As the plot ratcheted up, so did the fire, and the way they progressed hand in hand was genius. What I also thought was interesting about it was that we were seeing the Reapers MC in motion when things were completely out of their control. MC life is harsh and chaotic, but I feel like these men have always had control to a certain point, or they’ve been reaping what they’ve sown. (Do you see what I did there?) That wasn’t the case here. There were some things that were left unresolved, but this is an MC club and things aren’t resolved in the blink of an eye. I expect there will be some bigger ARCs with club business throughout the series, and it’s something that keeps me looking forward to the next book. Overall, Reaper’s Fire was a hit for me, and I’m looking forward to the next one. Let the waiting commence…

Reaper’s Fire is a standalone and is part of the Reaper’s MC series. I love this series! Joanna Wylde is my go-to MC author. She always gives me well-developed characters, crush worthy Heroes and dramatic storylines.

Reaper’s fire is probably the tamest book I’ve read in the series. I liked the change of pace and direction. The book starts out with a bang and I was instantly hooked. I felt for the main character and I couldn’t wait to dive in and get more of her. Tinker is a going through a transition in her life. She’s left her husband and moved to a small town to take care of her sick father. She’s also makes specialty chocolates and manages a building.

I adore Tinker. I found her resilient, feisty and she is a no damsel in distress Heroine. I loved she had enough courage to leave her ex and take on the responsibility of taking care of her father and her father’s business. The beginning of the read was probably my most favorite part of the book.

Then you have Gage. He’s as loyal as he can get. He will do anything for his club and I mean anything. Even if that means he has to spy on the rival club and sleep with the rival’s club VP sister to get information. I felt for Gage. No one wants to be a double agent, but he does it for his club. He takes a job as Tinker’s handle man for his cover story. What he doesn’t expect is to be super attracted to his boss.

I love this premise! I love that Gage is double agent and he has to make nice with his enemy’s sister, but Gage is conflicted because he wants Tinker. The tension was crazy high in this read and it makes you addicted to the story. I also love that it’s dual POV so you get exactly what the characters are thinking and feeling.

A lot goes on in this book. It’s a meaty book with a lot of MC politics and drama. Overall, if you are a fan of the series, you will not be disappointed.
