I have a weakness for hot, tattooed, badass biker books! Reaper’s Property by Joanna Wylde went way beyond by expectations. All I can say is holy crap!
Marie has just left her abusive husband and is living in her incarcerated mother’s trailer with her brother, Jeff. Marie is not sure what Jeff actually does to make money. She just knows he does something with computers and stays stoned most of the time (part of which reminded me of someone I know).
When some of Jeff’s clients show up at the trailer, one of them shows an interest in Marie. He is hot. He is big. His name is Horse. And he is a member of The Reapers, a motorcycle club Jeff is working for. Marie knows nothing about bikers or the way they live, but she is sure they are trouble.
Marie and Horse begin a back and forth. Horse wants Marie on his bike and in his bed. The last thing Marie wants is to be a biker’s old lady, and she lets Horse know this. Then the real story begins. Jeff is caught stealing from the Reapers and Marie agrees to do anything in order to save his life.
Anything turns out to be becoming the Reaper’s Property – or Horse’s property to be more specific. Horse tells Marie that he will spare her brother’s life if she agrees to go with him and stay with him until all of the money is repaid. Horse then explains that she will have to do whatever he wants, whenever he wants. You can imagine exactly what he is talking about, and Ms. Wylde lets us know in glorious, descriptive details.
Reaper’s Property captured my attention from the beginning and held it until the last page. The characters were real, the plot was original and it was hot. I am talking “melt your panties” hot! It was one of those books that I could not put down and was sad to see it end. I really hope Joanna decides to make a series out of this book. It was that fan-freakin-tastic!
I give Reaper’s Property 4.5 hookers!
