Review for Reaper's Legacy


Reaper's Legacy is a raw and intensely erotic tale in Joanna Wylde's Reapers Motorcycle Club series.

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.

My Review

First, I have to say that I absolutely love alpha males. They are my favorite of all types of males. I love how they totally dominate over their females, but are willing to give up anything to keep them safe.

Joanna Wylde really knows how to write alpha males. In Reaper's Legacy, Ruger comes off as a badass biker out to get what he wants, no matter what it takes. Ruger has always held back from pursuing Sophie because she once dated his step brother and he felt she hated him because of something terrible that happened in the past. To distance himself Ruger treated Sophie like a piece of furniture, with no feeling. Once he realized that she held feelings for him he decided to hold back no longer. He wanted her and he was determined to have her.

Sophie has always had a crush on Ruger. Years ago they came together but was interrupted by her boyfriend and son's father, Ruger's step brother. Afterwards, even with the stepbrother out of the picture, Ruger still treated Sophie with little regard. His sole purpose in their lives were for Noah, Sophie's son. Noah and Ruger had a deep bond between them. Even after Ruger started pursuing Sophie she still wanted nothing to do with Ruger because of his background with a biker gang. She associated bikers with being trouble makers and law breakers and did not want Noah around that type of setting.

Ruger was crude with his words and pretty much disregarded Sophie's wants. He pushed her to do what he wanted, no matter how she felt. He was demanding and arrogant, but always there for Sophie and Noah.

I loved Joanna's writing style. She kept me engaged throughout the entire book. I didn't want it to end but was completely satisfied with the ending. I can not wait for Em and Hunter's story, which is next in the series.

In a country stuck in the dark ages is a world filled with sex and scandal. Governed by royalty, those in power have many deep-rooted secrets that span generations.

Prince Anton’s sordid past has forged his future. He finds his only pleasure from being a sadist, but he knows he must continue the royal bloodline and create an heir for his country. Forced by responsibility, he turns to the one man who can give him the best of both worlds. But will Prince Anton find what he’s searching for?

Damian is the ruler of The Dungeon. He is the Teacher, and the only man Prince Anton can trust to provide him with what he needs. He is on a mission to find a virgin submissive to become the prince’s life partner. What happens when the Teacher falls for the woman he’s been ordered to train?

As lust and love spiral out of control, Prince Anton and Damian find their lives change unexpectedly because of one independent and defiant woman.

Crown Prince Anton of Colania, a remote island country roughly 1,000 miles southwest of New Zealand, strode confidently through his royal city. He was the country’s only ruler, the last surviving acknowledged prince of the monarchy that had been in power for hundreds of years.
As he entered The Dungeon, his eyes flickered over the patrons. Colania didn’t have a traditional class system based on wealth or power. With few exceptions, everyone was on nearly equal footing. It was part of the reason there was little effort or push to bring the country into the technological era. Here in The Dungeon, though, was a well-defined hierarchy.
Employees who’d been with the owner the longest took responsibility for those who played in The Dungeon.  Safety and pleasure were their domain, and they were easy to pick out due to their well-fitted, fine clothing. Each piece was designed to be practical yet seductive, and only Dungeon employees had such quality.
The owner was the wealthiest man, next to Prince Anton, on the island.  The owner was sought after by men and women alike for his training skills and sexual prowess.  He was also the only man on the island who could afford to have brand-new vehicles shipped in for himself as well as have updated electricity and amenities throughout his business and home.  
Prince Anton had only been in the man’s apartment on the third floor of The Dungeon once, but he had been impressed with its luxury.  Prince Anton was positive that parts of the castle had yet to be brought up to the standards that were imposed on this property.  Many corridors and hallways in the castle had no electric lighting or heat whereas The Dungeon had lighting that could be dimmed for mood and atmosphere.  Similarly, certain rooms that weren’t frequently used were still heated with wood fireplaces instead of a thermostat.  The only thing that had been refurbished throughout the castle was the plumbing, and that was for sanitary purposes.  Prince Anton could not tolerate things to be unclean.
Prince Anton didn’t hesitate or linger as he made his way through the club. He went straight to the black door on the back wall. He’d been here many times, and there was little to interest him. Everyone here was too used for his particular tastes.

He entered the black door and moved swiftly up the hidden staircase. This area of the club was off-limits to most. It was only available to patrons who paid exorbitant fees for private sex. Typically, only those who were ashamed of their vices used the rooms.
Prince Anton was neither ashamed nor paying for privacy today though. He had an appointment with the owner of The Dungeon, Damian Bellaro.
