RATING: 4.5 REESE STARS!!


As Reapers Motorcycle Club president, Reese “Picnic” Hayes has given his entire life to the club. After losing his wife, he knew he’d never love another woman. And with two daughters to raise and a club to manage, that was just fine with him. These days, Reese keeps his relationships free and easy—he definitely doesn’t want to waste his time on a glorified cleaning lady like London Armstrong.
Too bad he’s completely obsessed with her.

Besides running her own business, London’s got her junkie cousin’s daughter to look after—a more reckless than average eighteen-year-old. Sure she’s attracted to the Reapers’ president, but she’s not stupid. Reese Hayes is a criminal and a thug. But when her young cousin gets caught up with a ruthless drug cartel, Reese might be the only man who can help her. Now London has to make the hardest decision of her life—how far will she go to save her family?

BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

I am really enjoying Joanna’s Reaper’s MC series, her biker lads are all sexy and tough as nails. Her writing is always gritty and trouble comes the character’s ways in different shapes and sizes.

Never a dull moment.

Reese aka Picnic, I did forget he was Picnic sometimes, I did love London called him by his real name. He is one damn sexy male character. He is the club President and father of two daughters. I love how Reese is written, he does make me purrr.

Enter London, the cleaning lady. She has a lot going on in her life, she is looking out for Jessica the troubled and medically challenged daughter of her relative who is certainly not mother material. London is very much mother material, she is caring and has her hands full with Jessica. Things can only get worse.

Reese and London are total opposites, he is a womanizer, all part and parcel it would seem of being in a motorcycle club.

But a leopard can change its spots, apparently.

The only thing I found a little difficult to understand, plot wise, was the last several chapters in the turn of events with London.

I understand why Joanna did it, but, I personally didn’t totally dig how that went. But that is just my personal opinion. I am just being honest. I didn’t really believe the interaction that transpired between Reese and London. It was effective and reminded us of what Reese was capable of and how dangerous and serious this MC group of lads are, but...

I still rate this installment highly and look forward to more in this series.

I highly recommend this mc series.

EXCERPT


I heard voices as I approached the door, which was open a crack. (The frame had swollen up last winter and never quite gone back to normal, so you really had to fight to close it all the way. It was sandwiched on the repair list between fixing the car and replacing the oven.)

“Your cousin deserves better than this,” I heard Hayes saying, and I couldn’t help but smile. Glad someone noticed my efforts. “If she’s smart, she’ll kick you out.”

“She’ll never kick me out,” Jess declared, and her voice sounded a little smug. A little slurred, too . . . Had she been drinking? Probably. “She’d feel guilty. She’ll always take care of me because she has to—you don’t know shit about us.”

He snorted.

“You think she takes care of you out of guilt?” he asked. “Nope— she loves you, although I can’t quite decide why. You need to figure out what you want to do with your life, because you can’t just drain her dry forever. Sooner or later she’ll be done with you.”

His words sounded so close to my own thoughts it was almost creepy. It also made me feel guilty, because the statement was so cold and hard. Not to mention true.

“It’s none of your business.”

“London is my business, little girl,” he said, and his tone was anything but nice. “I have plans for her, and they don’t include her crying over your bullshit. Don’t piss me off.”
