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.

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.

“You want to watch a movie or something?” she asked, nodding toward the TV. I had a decent one, too. Giant-ass flat-screen—homecoming present from the club.
“Sure,” I said, reaching for the remote. I didn’t have cable, but Ruger had set up some kind of box thingie for me so I could stream shit. “Whatcha in the mood for?”
“Not horror,” she said quickly, and I laughed again, remembering that first evening I’d spent with her at Pic’s house. She’d been so young and scared and vulnerable . . . I’d wanted to eat her up.
I still wanted to eat her.
“I can’t believe that you and Puck were supposed to be watching over me, and then you put in a slasher movie. That’s not how you make a girl feel safe.”
“No horror,” I agreed, although the thought of holding her for a couple hours while she was scared shitless appealed way more than it should. Watch it, asshole. “How about Star Wars?”
“You like Star Wars?”
I shrugged. “Everyone likes Star Wars. You know, I’m pretty damned sure Han Solo was a biker.”
She giggled. “You mean, like a space biker?”
“See, when you say it like that it sounds stupid.”
“I wanted to be Princess Leia. She’s badass,” she said, taking a deep drink of her beer. I watched as her lips wrapped around the neck, her throat swallowing. Oh fuck, that was good. She set the beer down on the coffee table with a clink, then let loose with the biggest burp I’d ever heard.
“Fucking hell,” I said, stunned. “I didn’t think girls could burp like that. Shit. Impressive, Mel. Very impressive.”
She grinned at me.
“We’re friends,” she told me. “And friends don’t need to worry about stuff like that. Let me guess—you’ve never had a female friend before?”
“Not really,” I admitted. “I’m think I’m a little scared.”
Scared and turned on, which was weird.
“You should be. I can do the whole alphabet.”
Damn. I kinda wanted to see that.
