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 Knight (Unfinished Hero #1) By Kristen Ashley


Knight

5 out of 5 Stars (My favorite Kristen Ashley book. Yes, it is!!)

Genre:  Erotica, Contemporary Romance, Alpha Male, Drama.

Published: April 2012

Length: 273 Pages

I love this book and I love Kristen Ashley for writing a great story about a hot, controlling, alpha male named Knight.  If you have never read a Kristen Ashley novel, you must.  She is one of my top 5 favorite authors.

Was the story:

  • Predictable – YES
  • Hot and Steamy – YES
  • A lot of unnecessary swearing – Yes
  • Did I enjoy Knight – Hell Yes

A friend originally lent me this book. I loved it so much that I bought the book a month later and reread it.  It was better the second time. There is something about this book that I just love.  Knight is true alpha male and I find him appealing and sexy.  I love him. Yes, there are some bad qualities in him, but I do not care. I am willing to overlook them because he is so awesome to Anya. He is my favorite Kristen Ashley male character.

 The plot is Anya Gage has worked for everything she has every gotten in her life.  She has no expectations, no dreams.  She is just a good person who accepts life for what it is. Then she finds herself at a party where she doesn’t want to be and she meets Knight. OMG and he is hot!!!  While at the party, Anya walks into a bedroom looking for a phone to call a cab only to run into Knight Sebring. Knight knows what he wants and what he wants is Anya.  Knight learns that Anya is kind and loving, everything he feels he is not, so he tries to leave her so she can find what she deserves…a good, normal and clean life. Only Anya walks into Knight’s nightclub and he finds it is hard to stay away from her.  He only hopes that she does not find out his dark secrets.

  • Did I skim? NO. The story did not drag at all.
  • Did I feel connected to the characters? Yes
  • Do I recommend? Yes
  • Did I think about this book after I finished? Yes.
  • Will I reread? Yes.  I already read it twice.
  • Ending/Cliffhanger? The ending and everything was awesome.  It completed the story. I love Knight! *sigh*
  • Pace of the Story: Perfect.
  • Positives: Everything.
  • Negative: That Knight and Anya do not have their own series. I want Knight and Anya to have their story continue.  I know that they were mentioned and ‘appeared’ in CREED, but I want more.

I do not understand why more people do not love this book.  I see the mixed the reviews and cannot believe it.  Are we reading the same book????

This is how I picture Knight and Anya:
