Reapers Legacy - Joanna Wylde

Having read Reaper's Property, I have been dying to get my hands on this book for months.

So when I spotted a sign up for an ARC I was all over it.

I'm so very lucky to of been able to read this book early. As you all know patience is not one of my strong points so when things come early well it's just like Christmas but even better.

Reaper's Legacy


Eight years ago, Sophie gave her heart—and her virginity—to Zach Barrett on a night that couldn’t have been less romantic or more embarrassing. Zach’s step-brother, a steely-muscled, tattooed biker named Ruger, caught them in the act, getting a peep show of Sophie he’s never forgotten.

She may have lost her dignity that fateful night, but Sophie also gained something precious—her son Noah. Unfortunately, Zach’s a deadbeat dad, leaving Ruger to be Noah’s only male role model. When he discovers Sophie and his nephew living in near poverty, Ruger takes matters into his own hands—with the help of the Reapers Motorcycle Club—to give them a better life.

Living with outlaw bikers wasn’t Sophie’s plan for her son, but Ruger isn’t giving her a choice. He’ll be there for Noah, whether she wants him or not. But Sophie does want him, has always wanted him. Now she’ll learn that taking a biker to bed can get a girl dirty in every way

I absolutely love Sophie & Ruger's story. This story felt real from the get go with the circumstances that these two characters came together. I loved Ruger's take charge when he'd had enough of Sophie trying to do things for herself and really not getting anywhere.
I loved the fact that this man who was deemed the Badass Biker (Don't get me wrong, He is very much a HOT badass biker) was willing to look out for Noah and make sure him and Sophie were cool. He's fully intent in being in the Child's life and making sure he is safe which I think is awesome.

Obviously this wouldn't be a Reaper story if thats all that happened. You certainly have your fair share of idiots in there - Zach and a few others to make this story definitely not a Fairytale knight on white horse kind of deal which works well. Add in the fact that Sophie and Ruger don't quite know how to handle each other and that their sexual tension is off the charts, you have one hell of a story. 

I had the same thing happen to me after I finished with Reaper's Property as I've had with this one. I want more! Joanna has done a amazing job with these characters.

I'm pretty sure this book for me has surpassed Reaper's Property on the favourites list. Will definitely be adding this to the Badass Biker Books Page

I can't wait for Devil's Game which will be out in June 2014.


  1. I just read this and really liked it, too. Not sure if it surpasses Reaper's Property for me or not. They were both good!

    1. Yes they are both good books. I think it came down to storyline and Ruger won with his Tattoo :)
