Review: Reaper's Legacy (Reapers MC, #2) by Joanna Wylde

Reaper's Legacy
Contemporary Romance - Erotica - Abuse
Reaper's Legacy is a raw and intensely erotic tale in Joanna Wylde's Reapers Motorcycle Club series.

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.

Ah the Cover Hawt!

I am not a contemporary romance reader, but I do like to change things up every once and a while with what I read. I picked up this series (Reapers MC) after reading several interesting reviews on the fist book Reaper's Property. I am enjoy the change up in my reading and the Reapers MC world that Joanna Wylde has created.

Reaper's Legacy is book two in Joanna Wylde Reapers MCseries. I was pulled in full throttle and taken on a bumpy ride. Ms. Wylde seams to know about the MC world and takes use their with her Reapers and all the drama that unfolds. This series may not be for everyone. It's got violence, crude language, abuse and explicate sex. It delivers a very candid look into the world of motorcycle clubs. The Reapers live by their own rules and loyal ties that they defend at any cost.

The main characters Ruger, Sophie and Noah have a very complicated and original story. Not at all lighthearted. Once you start you will not want to stop until you have finished the book.

Sophie’s journey really begins when she enters the MC world. She must learn the ropes and adjust for herself and her sons sake. She knows she wants the man, but can she accept the life? Sophie started off as a good character, but then she decided to act as if she was better than the other people around her. By the end of the book she gets her act together. Her attitude towards thous who wanted to help was a little off putting and frustrating.

Ruger well he is a guy you know you should dislike, but for some reason its impossible. He is truly an asshole and holds this card for a very long long time, but once he realizes that Sophie is all he wants and desires, he transforms completely. But it might be too late. Ruger was downright mean most of the time, but you see that he loves Sophie and Noah, in his own way. The chemistry between them was a scorcher.

Noah the adorable child. Children have this way of pulling, so much emotion out of a character and transferring it to the reader. I liked having Noah in the story. He helped bring Sohpie and Ruger together in an amazing heartfelt way.

I’ve not read any other MC books yet, but I will say I am enjoy the Reaper’s MC series and look forward to continuing this one. So many interesting Reaper’s are introduced to use as well as some great ladies.

Note: This book can be read as a stand alone, but you will get the best enjoyment and understand of the world and characters if read in order.

Devil's Game (Reapers MC #3)
Due Out June 3rd, 2014
Liam “Hunter” Blake hates the Reapers MC. Born and raised a Devil’s Jack, he knows his duty. He’ll defend his club from their oldest enemies—the Reapers—using whatever weapons he can find. But why use force when the Reapers’ president has a daughter who’s alone and vulnerable? Hunter has wanted her from the minute he saw her, and now he has an excuse to take her.

Em has lived her entire life in the shadow of the Reapers. Her overprotective father, Picnic, is the club’s president. The last time she had a boyfriend, Picnic shot him. Now the men in her life are far more interested in keeping her daddy happy than showing her a good time. Then she meets a handsome stranger—a man who isn't afraid to treat her like a real woman. One who isn't afraid of her father. His name is Liam, and he’s The One.

Or so she thinks.


  1. I read this one too and it was entertaining but fairly tame compared to the ones I'd read in the genre (if you want a bit more extreme try Madeline Sheehan's Undeniable--it was a jaw dropper lol). Gah Ruger really was a bit of an ass wasn't he? And yet dangit if I didn't like him too. lol Great when an author can make that happen!

    1. I'll look into Madeline Sheehan. I've been on a motorcycle hang up lately and since I saw some good reviews for this series tried it out. Ruger was a bit of an ass but the author made it work and I was hung up on him. It's great when an author can do that.

  2. Holy hawtness, yes! Madeline Sheehan . . . is hardcore, but I LOVE it. If you aren't sure if you're ready for her yet, Kristen Ashley has some awesome MC books. Motorcycle Man is a crowd favorite, and with KA you still get the big, broody alpha man, but with less grit. Madeline Sheehan is PURE grit. As for this one, book 1 wasn't a favorite, but it wasn't so bad that I totally wrote off the author. I'll probably give book 2 a chance. I'll just wait for it to go on sale ;)

    1. Jessica with how much you read you should get your library card! I try to pick up most of my books from the library other wise I'd have to many books and no room to move about. ^_^ Thanks for the information on Madeline and Kristen. I'll keep them on my list and look into them. Not sure how hardcore I want to go in the Motorcycle world.

Critical Intelligence had some funny moments to I really enjoyed.  My favorite is the first quote the moment someone learns they are going to be a daddy I had to smile it reminded me of the day our son was born and how my hubby cried and passed out after he was born. ^_^  Check out my review here!

 " Nothing is wrong." Green smiled. "Well, not unless you consider being a father a bad thing."      "Being a father?"       "I'm going to be a ..." Darkness swallowed him whole as he passed out cold. ~ Critical Intelligence by Mandy M…
