Reaper's Legacy by Joanna Wylde
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Finally! A book with a strong heroin lead that isn't afraid to say what's on her mind, no matter how big the hero is! And Ruger is BIG! And he's intimidating and oh sooo sexy. I loved Sophie. She was refreshing and honest, a great mom, and best (or worst) of all, in love with Ruger!
I was so excited to hear that this book was finally coming out. I sat and devoured it in one day. I never do that, but this book was a page turner.
Oh! And the piercings! Ruger definitely had them from eyebrow to.. well.. yes even *there*! And he wasn't afraid to use a single one of them! And his tatts. Oh the tattoos and at the end when you find out what one particular tatt is, OMG I was stunned and fell in love with this sexy alpha male just a little bit more!
This book has it all, mayhem, murder, kidnapping, and love. It's a wild 90mph 2-wheel ride down a slippery mountain side getting to each of those, and the cherry on top of this wild ride is the fact that this book is sexy hot!
Outside of the main characters, Ruger and Sophie and all their hot sex, you have Noah, Sophie's son, who was fathered by Ruger's half brother, Zach. Zach is a dead beat dad and Ruger steps in to be the man in the boys life. Ruger loves Noah and the feeling is quite mutual. I loved that this hard ass biker, who is an arrogant, control freak, know it all (but really, in a hot sexy way!) could be such a wonderful father figure for Noah. That sealed the deal for me in my love of this character. Noah is the pint sized glue that holds the story of Ruger and Sophie together.
Sophie is living in a small run down apartment with Noah, a hard working single mom who is just trying to squeak out a living for her and her son. Zach, being the dead beat dad that he is, just stops paying child support, so there's no help there. She's moved hours away from Ruger, so he has no idea she's in such dire straits. Until a phone call from Noah who is frightened and scared at a new baby sitters house. The catalyst for Ruger and Sophie to begin their journey.
I enjoyed all the sub characters and plots in this book and can actually see openings for future books from some of them. We already know that Em and Hunter will have their own book, Devil's Game, which is up next. Would love to see a book on Picnic. And will poor Bolt ever get out of jail? You see quite a bit of Horse and Marie in this book too. Was nice to get a little bit of a fix from them!
So the big question was, can Ruger live up to a man called "Horse"? Ahhh, well now, you'll just have to run and get Reaper's Legacy to find out!
A solid 4 star read for me!
