It's time for more men and motorcycles in the latest from the New York Times bestselling author of Reaper's Fall...
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.

4.5 "Club Before Love?" Stars!
Joanna Wylde always manages to captivate my attention. REAPER'S FIRE is no exception. This was one long book at over 384 pages, and I was enraptured for the entire ride!
Things are feeling awfully suspicious at the Reaper's MC support club, the Nighthawk Raiders located out of Hallies Falls, Washington. A short while ago most of the former leadership landed themselves in jail (while covering for the Reaper's MC) on a job gone bad. During that vacuum, they got a new President, Marsh, but the Reaper's MC doesn't really know much about Marsh or most of the other leaders who are now in charge. The one thing they do know is that their cut appears to be getting smaller and smaller.
So Gage, being single and otherwise up for having his brothers' backs, takes off his colors and takes on the challenge of going undercover at the Nighthawk Raiders MC. His quickest ticket in requires him to pretend to be someone he's not, a fact he is generally fine with, until as part of his cover he meets Tinker Garrett.
Unable to tell her the truth, he can't show interest in Tinker, without giving away who he truly is. Problem is he can't stop thinking about her and is determined to make her his. Moreover, Tinker is definitely attracted to Gage, but can a relationship built on lies ever lead to a HEA?
One thing I really liked about this book was that like Picnic's and London's story (Reaper's Stand, Book 4 in the series), in REAPER'S FIRE we get a romance between two thirty-somethings, giving us a slightly different perspective than the typical romance novel and tackling such difficult matters as divorce, the loss of a child, and taking care of an elderly parent. I love how Ms. Wylde is able to portray these "older" and complex characters as capable of exhibiting the same heat and intensity that the younger members of the Reaper's MC have treated us to as well as weaving in a number of interesting side plots to keep us invested and intrigued along the way.
All in all, REAPER'S FIRE is a must read for Reaper's MC fans and lovers of MC romances in general. I would also recommend this book for anyone who has enjoyed Kristen Ashley's Dream Man series (can you say Kane "Tack" Allen!). If you're a fan of alpha heroes, Gage is definitely one protective hero that you definitely want to get to know!
