Reaper's Legacy (Reaper's Motorcycle Club) Review!!!

Published: 1/28/14


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 love Joanna Wylde!  The first thing I read of hers was Reaper's Property and I adored it!  It was rough around the edges and it was amazing!  Reaper's Legacy is not nearly as rough, but just as good.  It tells the story of a young girl who falls for the wrong brother and how in just a moment everything can change.  Sophie gives Zach something special and he basically uses her little body then treats her horribly.  Incredibly horribly to be honest.

Sophie finds herself alone at the time of Noah's birth and has to lean on his older step brother Ruger for help.  The scene is so beautiful it actually brought tears to my eyes.  Ruger is forever changed in that moment and Sophie becomes a part of him, as does Noah.  Noah is a beautiful kid.  He has a huge heart and he adores Ruger.  Ruger would give his life for that boy.  Without question, Ruger is his father figure.

But like most men in the Reaper's MC, trying to tie one down is a feat of unimaginable strength.  He is not a forever kind of guy, and he makes this clear.  I love that about Ruger though, there is no sugar coating things.  He says what he wants and he means it.  But the man has a heart of gold.

Ruger and Sophie change and in another moment they both realize that they want to be together as a couple.  But Sophie balks at being Ruger's Property.  In fact I see a lot of women having issues with the property tag in Wylde's books, but really I see both sides of this argument.  That being said, all in all a fantastic book.  Wish it had rougher moments, but I loved it!

I want Em's and Picnic's stories next!!!!!

I give this 4.5 lipsticks!
