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. Soon.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
Gage (AKA Cooper) will do anything for his club, his brothers, his loyalty is absolute. When he is asked to go undercover to take down a club that is danger and almost falling apart, because their new President is corrupt, he is more than willing even if it means having to soil himself with the likes of his cruel viper of a sister. Gage hates that he has to even be around Talia, especially with how she manipulates and treats others and plays cruel games with lives. But she is his ticket into the club, to win their trust so he can gather the intel he needs to take down the President and his gang and get to the bottom of the real club and if there is anyone left worth saving. Then he meets mature and lovely Tinker. Working as her handyman part time, is the perfect cover that he needs. But he soon becomes torn over his loyalty to his club–his family, and the one woman he would give his life for…
Gage never had a real family growing up…his parents were the best at raising kids. But Gage found his true family in the Reapers Club, when they rescued him from his life when he was only seventeen. He would do anything for his brothers, they give him everything he has ever needed and now they need him. Gage has been a hero I have watched throughout the series and I really loved him for the most part. He has the same dangerous edge that comes with the men of this club, but he also has loyalty and honor. Now he makes his own mistakes, of course but he also has a good heart
Tinker, is a woman of strength and courage. Tinker grew up in a small town, and married. But the man she married, was not who she thought he was. And when she lost her baby in a miscarriage, and her husband wouldn’t even come to the hospital, she knew that it was over and she needed to create her own future again. Being the gourmet chef she spent years training for and building up her business. But when her mother died, and her father’s mental health started to slowly decline, she returned home to take care of him. Tinker’s story is heartbreaking at times, but I also loved her tenacity and strength and standing up for her own values. I just loved seeing the way she stands on her own,
Plot and Story Line
Reaper’s Fire is a story I have been long awaiting to read and I finally managed to get a copy at my local library and yes it was pretty fantastic, not sure where it stands as far as comparing to the other books…I do feel like it stands on its own as a fantastically thrilling romance that this author creates and has its own unique plot. Now if you have read the previous book, “Reapers Fall” then there are some similarities, here for sure, since these two book plots have some commonalities, and this is story is where we get to see Gage’s side of the story and I will admit I was SUPER nervous to read it. Because I just didn’t like the idea of the hero having sex with one woman while falling for another, I just wasn’t sure how I would feel about it. But honestly, it didn’t bother me as much as I thought it would. Our hero is working undercover for his club.
Reapers forever, forever Reapers.
Sometimes loyalty sucks.
Quite frankly Talia is CRAZY!! Literally, she needs to be put down like a sick dog. Really…she is cruel and frankly (A Bitch–excuse my language, but she is just horrible. So our hero struggles every day being undercover because of the way he has to be even around Talia. Now he and Tinker have a strong connection to each other, but its more look and don’t touch type of thing they have going on. And his relationship with Talia isn’t full committing to each other in a singular relationship. Its more like having an open relationship. So technically, there is no cheating going on but it is a fine line especially when you see how much Gage and Tinker really start to care about each other. But what I liked about the story, was seeing how they practically fall in love with each other before being intimate with each other.
I’ve been suffocating, WAITING FOR YOU, and I don’t think you’ve had it any easier, have you?
I liked that a ton actually, especially since its rare in this series or even most books written. I loved seeing the way these two connected in the small ways even. We also see a unique situation with the club involved here. Now in Reapers Fall (the previous book) we just see the negative part to the club, but I did like seeing that some of the older members who are still good and honorable. We also get some new twists with a fire that is sweeping the area, Definitely, adds some tension and intensity to the story that keeps the story alive. Reaper’s Fire is simply breathtaking and I had a blast with this latest release and she keeps making me fall in love with these MC settings and the culture which is very different, but I love the close knit ties the Reaper’s have with each other, the way they fight and protect and the way they support and love each other no matter what happens.
Oh I really love this cover…not necessarily my top favorite…but it’s very close.
Reaper’s Fire is a stimulating and fiery hot romance that is full of excitement, danger, growth and change and so tender and sweet, an emotionally driven love story that wraps around your heart….UNFORGETTABLE!!
