Review of Reaper’s Property By Joanna Wylde

Reapers Property

Reaper’s Property by Joanna Wylde

Genre: Motorcycle, Erotica, Adult Fiction.

Published: January 2013

Length: 285 pages (Kindle)

4.5 out of 5 Stars (I am glad I bought and read it.)

This book was a little pricey so I was leery of purchasing it.  However, I was in the mood for a biker read and thought why not give it a try.

Let me tell you, it was awesome.  No disappointment.  It had everything I like in a good biker book.

#1 – Hot, alpha biker guy

#2 – Sweet, pretty non-biker girl who thinks the scary biker is hot.

#3 – A great story.

#4 – It was steamy

Marie just left her abusive husband and moved in with her brother, Jeff, who does some business for a motorcycle group called the Reapers.  The Reapers are a dangerous motorcycle club and one of their members is the hot, bad-ass biker, Horse. Yes, Horse is his name.

The minute that Marie sees Horse, she knows he is danger and everything she wants avoid.  However, Horse is one man that knows what he wants and does not take no for an answer. When Jeff is found stealing from the Reapers, Horse makes Marie an offer that she knows that she cannot refuse if she wants to save Jeff’s life.  The offer is for Marie to move into his home and do everything and anything he asks her to do…no questions asked.

Horse can be a jerk and I wanted to kick him sometimes.  I understand through his POV in the book why he had to be a jerk, but it doesn’t mean I had to like it. Horse is just lucky he was as hot and sexy and showed his loving side to Marie or he would still be on my crappy jerk list. Yeah, I have a list!

This is a book that many friends told me to read and said even though the plot is very simple story with an alpha biker it is worth my time. After finishing it, I have to agree.  No regrets paying the money and reading this one.

  • Did I skim? No. The story had my interest.  I loved the writing style. The story did not drag.
  • Did I feel connected to the characters? Yes.
  • Will I pick up other books by this author? Yes.
  • Pace of story? Good
  • Positives:  It was hot with enough drama that it kept my attention.
  • Negatives: It could be a little corny sometimes, but you know in the end I loved it all. It worked.
  • Do I recommend? Yes.

Review of Sweet Dreams (Colorado Mountain #2) By Kristen Ashley

Sweet Dreams

5 out of 5 Stars (Yeah, I loved it.)

Genre:  Erotica, Contemporary Romance, Motorcycle, Suspense, Mystery.

Published: April 2011

Length: 562 Pages

Where do I sign up to be a Motorcycle Biker Babe???  Because if it involves living in a small town like Carnal, Colorado, having awesome friends and a hot, alpha motorcycle man like Tate, I am signing up!!

Lauren Grahame leaves her husband of 10 years after finding out that he had been cheating with her best friend for 5 years.  Lauren packs her bags and leaves her upper middle class life in Phoenix and after 4 months of searching for town to call home, she settles in Carnal, Colorado.  There she applies for a job as a waitress.

“All my life, or as long as I can remember, I thought something special was going to happen to me. I just had this feeling, deep in my bones. I didn’t know what it was but it was going to be beautiful, spectacular, huge.  All…my…life. It didn’t. I waited and it didn’t happen. I waited more and it didn’t happen. I waited more and it still didn’t happen. I tried to make it happen and it still didn’t happen.  Now I know it isn’t going to. It’s never going to happen because there isn’t anything special out there to happen.”

And then Lauren gets the waitress job and meets hot motorcycle biker, Tatum “Tate” Jackson.

And the first time that Lauren meets Tate, he calls her “some sorry-ass, old, fat, suburban b***h.”

I was thinking, yeah, not sure if I am going to like Tate.  However, Kristen Ashley is such a fabulous writer that she does not make her heroes and heroines perfect.  There is realism; they have their faults. It is not love at first sight.  There may be immediate attraction, but there is some tension.  I have been reading so many books lately that the main characters “claim” their love in page 4.  WHAT????  Where does the story go from there??

‘Sweet Dreams’ was told brilliantly.  There was enough tension, heat and drama that I could not stop turning the pages.  Kristen Ashley does not disappoint.

To add to the love story, havoc hits Carnal when a serial killer arrives.  Someone has begun raping and killing women. Usually when murders happen in books, they are to people that are not really part of the story.  Not in this book.  No one is safe from the serial killer.

The steam factor was pretty high.  There was a lot of sex.  Some of it was hot and some it was beautiful.

The book is over 500 pages long, but there is not one page that you will want to skim. Something is always going on.

I loved the last 10% of the book.  The first 90% is in Lauren’s POV. The last 10% is from 3 characters in the book, one of them being Tate.  I loved it. LOVED IT!!!

Did I skim? NO

Did I feel connected to the characters? Yes

Do I look forward to the other book in the series? YES

Did I look forward to returning to the book when I had to stop reading? YES

Ending/Cliffhanger? Loved the ending.
