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.


Tinker just may be my favorite Wylde heroine yet!  She’s amazingly adorable and takes family and friendship very seriously.

Reaper’s Fire is the sixth book in the Reaper’s MC series. If you’ve made it this far, you know a few things.

1 – You should have a decent idea of where the story line heads.

2 – You already know Wylde has a wicked talent at balancing drama, humor, humanity and steamy romance.

3 – You’ll already be planning on one clicking this baby and you don’t really need me to try to sell it to you. So, I’ll widdle my thoughts down to these:

While Reaper’s Fire starts off fairly sad, Wylde eases it with cute and quirky humor. Especially between Gage and Tinker. Their flirting and growing attachment made me smile (I’m a huge sucker for some good flirting). As did the interactions between Tinker and her friends. They were very human and very fun.

My only issue with Reaper’s Fire is that some issues were left unresolved. I imagine it’s because they will play a role in future books, so I’m not all together bummed by this. It really makes me look forward to the next book, but at the same time…I was ready to see a certain someone go down.

So, maybe this isn’t my favorite of all the Reaper’s book, but it has my favorite heroine. I’ll take that as a huge win!
