reapers legacy

SYNOPSIS

WELCOME TO THE CLUB

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…

Gitte: When I started reading Legacy I felt like I was coming home; it was a fab feeling, it really was. Here we have a biker story which isn’t excessive on grunting clipped alpha speak or over the top drama and violence. Joanna Wylde writes great MC books; she really does. The story was really quite beautiful in amongst the gritty biker world and the characters are not one dimensional or over written; the writing itself flowed and was descriptive yet not overly so. I really loved Legacy and was swept away in the story from the get go. My only small niggle is that it lost momentum in the middle and began to drag a bit until the big climax at the end (pun intended). But overall, once again this Author wrote a story that’s ended up on my fave biker bookshelf, no question! You loved it too didn’t you Jenny?

Jenny:  OMG Gitte, I really did enjoy this one and I’m so glad we left this one ’til now because after reading a few meh books I was depending on this one to pull me in and have me falling love with the story and the characters and I’m happy to say…Reaper’s Legacy did just that.  I will agree there were one or two times when it did drag a little but these were just small blimps in what was an otherwise engaging, hot, emotional, passionate and wonderfully entertaining read…..and yes…the climax was certainly worth it!

In my opinion Joanna Wylde writes a biker book to perfection and somehow manages to bring us that perfect blend of grittiness, alphaness (I’m sure it’s an actual word), passion, emotion, hot sex in abundance and a storyline that keeps us glued throughout. As you said, here have some down and dirty bikers who are alpha to the extreme yet they’re able converse without the cliché monosyllabic overtones. Yep, this was a winner.

Gitte: So we have our heroine, Sophie. What a sweetheart she was. She fell in love….first love with an arse called Zack. Zack was a complete cock, and not in a good way. He got our Sophie pregnant then treated her like crap. Her first time no less, but she got a beautiful baby boy out of it and the scene where Noah is born was so emotional and beautiful I had a few sniffles and tears. Ruger is Zack’s half-brother and is there for Sophie when Noah’s born. The bond between Ruger and Noah is cemented immediately and several times through the story you realise just how much this is true and the poignancy of the moment comes to a head at the end in the most amazingly beautiful way!! I don’t want to give this certain moment away because the surprise and the effect it had on me cemented my love for Ruger’s character. I understood completely why our Sophie was in lust and love with the bad arse biker Ruger!!!

‘Ruger had to be the hottest guy I’d ever met. He was all danger and hard muscles with his tattoos and piercings and that goddamned black Harley of his. When he walked into a room he owned it, because it only took one look to see he was a fucking badass, the type who takes what he wants and never says he’s sorry.’ – Sophie

His tattoos….the symbolism….sigh…..

Sophie was a sweet and clued-up character. At no stage did she annoy me nor did I question her. She’s a young Mum and does her best under the circumstances within which she and her son live. Albeit not very nice circumstances and I have to say my heart hurt for them in the beginning of the story. Sophie, questions everything; good girl!! Also, she has self-worth and knows what she wants and won’t settle for less.

“I deserve to be with someone who gives a shit about me, as a person. Someone who values me enough not to fuck other women.” – Sophie

She goes through a lot in this story but every step of the way she has a man covering her back. A man I fell in complete love with who had depth and a way with words.

“Whatever else happened, you gave me beautiful.” – Sophie

Sigh….Ruger…..what a man….over to you Jenny!

Jenny: Oh yes please! I’ll take Ruger. What a man indeed!! From the first time we met Ruger in his confrontation with Zack and Sophie to all the times he was there for Sophie when she needed him I fell more and more in love with this tough biker dude. This commanding, tattooed, possessive, dirty talking alpha biker with dimples and a tight ass  was the epitome of a bad boy but he had a heart of gold and stepped up when it mattered. Oh yeah, Ruger could be a dick at times….but oh how we love these bad biker boys!

“I think you’re a raging asshole.” – Sophie
“Yeah, well I think you’re a bitch, but my cock likes you, so we’ll figure something out.” – Ruger

Ruger’s allegiance to his “Brothers” was cemented; his dedication, love and commitment to Noah a bond that would never break from the beginning and the exchanges and special moments between these two absolutely melted me. Just beautiful to see the bond between this man and his nephew.

“From day one, I can say with a clear conscience that there is nothin’ –not a fucking thing – on this earth I wouldn’t do to protect him or you……”

Ruger was such would have me giggling one minute, melting the next, wanting to punch him a couple of times and then have me repeatedly fanning myself the next and whoa!!!! the intimate scenes between Sophie and Ruger were off the charts!!!!

“The fact that my dick’s in its happy place is probably saving your life. Trust me when I say I’m seriously considerin’ strangling you, Sophie. Thinking about fuckin’ you helps balance that out.”

Ruger’s unyielding need to protect Sophie and Noah meant bringing them into his world which was akin to mixing oil and water.  Ruger’s world is one of loyalty exacting revenge – an eye for an eye at all costs, Sophie wanted safe, secure and sedate. What she got was  a controlling Ruger. But there’s no denying the sizzling chemistry brewing between them or the devotion and bond they feel for one another – compromise is the key….easier said than done.

Oh and the symbolism of the tattoo you mentioned G…..just….I have no words. It was beautiful and rendered me speechless. Wonderful.

G&J: So, we really loved Reaper’s Legacy and we love Joanna Wylde’s flawless writing. This was a great second instalment in this series and even though Horse will always have a very special place in our hearts; Ruger comes a very close second. Like super close!!!

‘The man was like heroin – seductive, addictive, and a damned good way to wake up dead.’ – Sophie

Reading Legacy was effortless and it had just the right amount of grit and raw emotion. At no point did we think it was over the top nor did we do any eye-rolling. In fact we mostly swooned, got teary from the emotion, got a tad hot under the collar from the passion…oh and we laughed out loud a few times too:

“Jesus you piss me off”…….”Good thing your c***’s so fucking hot.” – Ruger
“Don’t call it that.” – Sophie
“Good thing your vagina’s so gosh-darned hot”….”Because I really, really want to stick my penis in it and have repeated sexual intercourse, bringing us to a mutually satisfactory culmination of our desires. How’s that sound?” – Ruger

It was great catching up with all the characters again from book #1 and we have to say we are gagging for Devil’s Game (Reapers MC #3)…like wanting it NOW!!!!  Because Hunter & Em…well we know this one will be quite the ride!!!
