Marie doesn’t need a complication like Horse. The massive, tattooed, badass biker who shows up at her brother’s house one afternoon doesn’t agree. He wants Marie on his bike and in his bed. Now.

But Marie just left her abusive jerk of an ex-husband and she’s not looking for a new man. Especially one like Horse—she doesn’t know his real name or where he lives, she’s ninety percent certain he’s a criminal and that the “business” he talks with her brother isn’t website design. She needs him out of her life, which would be a snap if he’d just stop giving her mind-blowing orgasms.

Horse is part of the Reapers Motorcycle Club, and when he wants something, he takes it. What he wants is Marie, but she’s not interested in becoming “property of”.

Then her brother steals from the club. Marie can save him by giving Horse what he wants—at home, in public, on his bike… If she’s a very, very good girl, she’ll get lots more of those orgasms only he can offer, and he’ll let her brother live.
Maybe.

I love reading sexy romances. I especially love sexy romances with hot badass bikers. Kristen Ashley and Madeline Sheehan fan over here. So, when I first heard about Reaper’s Property I knew that it was something that I needed to add to my TBR. To say that I liked the book would be an understatement. I freaking LOVED this book! After reading this book I wanted to kick my own ass for not reading it sooner.

Reaper’s Property begins with Marie, walking in to the trailer home she shares with her brother, Jeff, and sees him beaten, bloodied, and surrounded by some terrifying bikers from the Reaper’s Motorcycle Club. The MC has paid Jeff a visit to collect the money (plus interest) he had stolen from the club. But since Jeff has been preoccupied with getting high and gambling, the MC has decided the only way to even the debt is by putting him to the ground. Not wanting to see her brother get killed, Marie tries to bargain by telling them she will do whatever to save his life. The only solution the club comes up with is for Marie to become “property of” Horse, a club member who wants nothing but Marie on the back of his back, in his house and in his bed.

“Someday I’m going to own all of you, Marie. You’re all mine, babe. Knew it the first time I saw you. Couldn’t give it up if I tried.”

Weeks prior to seeing her brother almost killed by the Reaper’s, Marie had recently just moved back in to her childhood home after leaving her cheating and abusive husband. As she’s trying to put her life back together, Marie meets the Reaper’s when they stop by to visit Jeff, who was doing some computer work for the club. Sparks immediately fly when Marie and Horse meet and over the next few weeks the sexual tension builds to epic proportions and they end up having a few sexual encounters that set the pages on fire. But things come to an immediate halt after Marie rejects Horse’s proposal for her to be his old lady.

The story then picks back up from where the prologue left off and we see Marie keeping her word and goes with the Reapers to Idaho. Obviously, Marie isn’t all too excited to be Horse’s “property” but can’t help herself from getting excited thinking about getting intimate with Horse again. Now some of you might be raising your eyebrows over the fact that Marie is Horse’s property. In Horse’s world, the word property means a whole different thing from what Marie perceives. Although Marie is his, Horse always gives Marie a choice and reminds her that she can leave at any time she wants. He provides for her, shelters her, protects her and most importantly, cares and loves her. Marie struggles throughout the whole book to comprehend the MC lifestyle but as she gets in deeper and deeper with Horse and the rest of his club, she slowly begins to understand that being his property means a whole different thing from what she originally thought. And I’m sure all the orgasms the man gave her helped her love his lifestyle.

“I want you to be my old lady, babe. That’s all I have to offer. I’m a Reaper, and this is my world. You wear my patch, you be my woman and I’ll be your man. We take the good times together and fight the bad times. No games.”

As with a lot of the romances I read, I am always more of a fan of the hero than the heroine. Horse makes no apologies for his actions and once he sets his eyes on something (or someone), then nothing comes in his way. He’s arrogant, chauvinistic, bossy and dominant. He’s pretty much an asshole but a sexy asshole that will get your loins quivering. His old fashioned thinking might be a turnoff for most women but his intentions are in the right place and he loves and lust for his woman like crazy and that is what’s most important to me. And if you’re wondering why Horse is called Horse it’s because he’s hung like a ……

Aside from the sexy bikers and the sexy times between Marie and Horse, what really made me enjoy this book was that it takes place in an area of Washington that I’m very familiar with. The place where Marie and her brother live is about an hour away from where I live so, when Wylde describes their surroundings I had a more vivid picture of it than what most readers probably imagined. Knowing the area in Washington and even Idaho made my whole reading experience so much more awesome and it gave me tingles just thinking about sexy bikers living around these parts. Although, I haven’t come across any bikers that would have me quivering like Horse. LOL.

Reaper’s Property was my first Joanna Wylde book and it definitely won’t be my last. Wylde made me laugh, cry, and set my skin on fire with the sexy romance between Horse and Marie. If you’re a fan of sexy badass bikers that’ll take you on a wild ride on his bike and in his bedroom, then you definitely need to read Reaper’s Property. Definitely cannot wait to read more from Wylde and this series.
