Are you ready for Gage and Tinker’s story?
Reapers Motorcycle Club - Book 6
By Joanna Wylde
Release Date : August 9, 2016
New York Times bestselling author Joanna Wylde returns to the “wild and raw”* world of the Reapers MC with the story of Gage and Tinker…
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.
“I can’t believe how late it is,” Tinker said, yawning, and I realized the movie had ended. Now she stretched upward, the blanket falling to her waist as her boobs pushed forward.
God, how much should a man be expected to take?
I should’ve stayed away from her completely—that’d been the plan—but something had snapped when I’d seen her out in the courtyard. Couldn’t remember the last time I’d met a woman like Tinker. She was smart and sexy and funny, and she worked damned hard to take care of her family and business. Sure, I wanted to fuck her—you’d have to be gay not to—but I respected her, too.
“I should probably get going,” she said, offering me a smile so sweet I wanted to bite her lips. “I like to check on Dad before going to sleep, and I’ve got to be up early in the morning. I’ve got to package orders for the courier tomorrow—if they aren’t ready by two p.m., I’m screwed.”
I considered rolling over on top of her. Pushing her down into the couch cushions, shoving my leg between hers, and showing her what a real man feels like.
“Cooper?” she asked, looking confused. I blinked a couple times, forcing myself to focus on her face.
“I’m going to watch another one,” I told her, because I’m a goddamn masochist. “You sure you’re ready to head out?”
She frowned, and I could almost read her thoughts. Yes, she should leave. But she wanted me as much as I wanted her. And yeah, I realize that makes me sound like an egotistical ass, but this wasn’t my first rodeo. I saw the lust in her eyes, and the way she licked her lips and stared at my mouth. This wasn’t a one-way street, not even close.
“I guess I could stay a little longer,” she whispered. Christ, she was so sweet and soft. I wanted to bite her even more now. Suck that pouty lower lip into my mouth and shove a finger up her ass.
You’re one sick fuck.
Why yes. Yes, I am. Thanks for noticing.
I managed to control the urge, catching her hand instead, giving it a friendly squeeze like some kind of pathetic tool. Her fingers tightened on mine, then she pulled away and snuggled back down under the blanket, raising her feet to rest on the coffee table. I grabbed the remote and clicked through the menu.
Tomorrow I’d do my job. I’d fuck Talia and spy on Marsh and look for any kind of weakness that might end this situation, the faster the better. Tonight, though . . . Tonight I’d pretend this wasn’t a waste of time.
Goddamn, but my dick hurt.
The next hour was torture.
Tinker sat next to me, all cute and classy and absolutely refusing to make any kind of eye contact. I don’t know how she felt, but to me the sexual tension hanging in the air was thick and heavy. I kept thinking about her hand in mine—small, but strong. The hand of someone who knew how to work hard. So far as I knew, Talia had never held down a job, let alone supported herself.
The couch shifted, and I glanced over to find Tinker sliding deeper into the cushions, drawing the blanket up to her chin. Our legs were maybe six inches apart. She shifted again, and then her hand bumped mine under the blanket. She jerked it back quickly, and I caught the hint of a flush on her cheeks. That was another thing I liked about her—her skin was so pale that I could see every hint of arousal.
Grabbing her hand, I pulled it over to rest on my thigh. This was a really bad idea, so I pointedly refused to think it through. Her hand tensed at first, then relaxed into my strength. My cock swelled against the fabric of my jeans, just inches from her fingers—it’d be so easy to push her hand toward it, wrap it around my painfully swollen dick, and just go to town.
Tinker’s fingers gave a quick squeeze—almost more of a spasm—and I bit back a groan.
Yeah, okay. Really, really bad idea. I should get off the couch and shut this shit down right now, because I couldn’t afford to blow things with Talia just yet. Instead I found myself leaning toward Tinker, bumping shoulders.
I’d grown a pussy. No other explanation, because I couldn’t figure out why the hell else an adult man would sit holding hands under a damned blanket like a kid.
It's hard to believe that Reaper's Fire by Joanna Wylde is the sixth book in the Reaper's Motorcycle Club series. I still can't get enough of this series. I remember reading the first book, Reaper's Property, over three years ago when it was first published by a smaller ebook publishing company. I was mesmerized by the biker community and their lawless life style. I remember going to one of the first big book signings, Book Bash 2013 in Orlando, and standing in a long line to meet Joanna Wylde. At that time there wasn't a print book available for her to sign. Fans were getting book marks, t-shirts, and other items signed. The one thing we all had in common was how desperate we were to meet the author that created a biker named Horse that stole our hearts. Joanna Wylde is an author that paved the path for Biker / MC romance series. Readers wanted a authentic bad boy that commanded the world on his terms. The Reaper's MC is still out in front of the pack and dominating the MC romance world.
The latest release, Reaper's Fire is another page turner. In many ways Reaper's Fire runs parallel to Reaper's Fall (book 5). The timeline and several of the climatic events that take place in both books are from different characters perspectives and roles in these events.
Gage and Painter were sent to Hallies Falls by their club, Reaper's MC, to determine what was going on with the Nighthawks MC, one of their alliances in their territory. The Nighthawks have been neglecting their duties to the Reaper's. They are stealing money, skimming product, and taking on too many new recruits. They are building an army to take over the territory. Pic, the Reaper's president, has sent Gage and Painter undercover to find out what's going on. Gage is ordered to go undercover and infiltrate the Nighthawks MC. He has to create a new identity that doesn't tie him to the Reaper's.
Gage becomes Cooper, a recently divorced trucker laying low until all the papers are signed. He takes on a job as a handyman in exchange for rent. The owner of the apartments, Tinker, is one of the sexiest women he has met. He has to put his own desires aside, he is on the job. The easiest way to infiltrate the Nighthawks is through their president's pyscho sister, Talia Jackson.
Tinker moved back to Hallies Falls after a tragic event that led to her separation from her husband. She needs to take care of her father who suffers from dementia. He is getting worse since her mother passed away. She is struggling to keep her mother's gift store open, her own candy business thriving, take care of the apartments, and handle the care of her father. Her life is beyond stressed. When she hires the sexy newcomer in town as a handyman, she is in for a whole new kind of stress. He's taken and his girlfriend is downright scary.
While Gage is trying to keep Talia under control and get a handle on what's going on inside the Nighthawks clubhouse, he's also battling his attraction to Tinker. This job can't be over soon enough. He's going to claim Tinker as his own.
Things are much worse than Gage or the Reaper's anticipated. Cleaning up the Nighthawks is going to take more than shutting them down. Somebody will have to stay behind to control the chaos. Gage is willing to stay because he wants Tinker.
Tinker and Gage had to work for their relationship. There were a ton of obstacles in their way. Both are mature adults that have been around the block. They understand the best things in life are the hardest to acquire . It takes two to make this work. First they have to handle the chaos in their lives.
So many things happened in this book that tied this series together. It was intense, sexy, and emotional. The characters were larger than life and made a great impact on the Reaper's series. The one thing I loved most was that Gage was a lot like Horse. He was a complete alpha male claiming his woman on his own terms.
I can't wait to see what comes next for the Reaper's MC. Joanna Wylde has created a legacy in the Biker Romance world. To this day I would still spend hours standing in a long line to meet Joanna Wylde and get my Reaper's MC books signed.

Reaper's MC - Book 1
By Joanna Wylde
Marie doesn’t need a complication like Horse. The massive, tattooed badass biker who shows up at her brother’s house one afternoon doesn’t agree. He wants Marie on his bike and in his bed. Now.
But Marie just left her abusive jerk of an ex-husband and she’s not looking for a new man. Especially one like Horse. She doesn’t know his real name or where he lives. She’s ninety percent certain he’s a criminal and that the “business” he talked with her brother wasn’t website design. She needs him out of her life, which would be a snap if he wasn’t so damned sexy.
Horse is part of the Reapers Motorcycle Club, and when he wants something, he takes it. What is he wants is Marie, but she’s not interested in becoming some biker’s property.
Then her brother steals from the club. Now Marie can save him by giving Horse what he wants—at home, in public, on his bike… and if she’s a very, very good girl, he’ll let her brother live.
