Blog Tour Book Review: Reaper's Fall by Joanna Wylde

at 11/20/2015 12:00:00 AM
Reaper’s Fall is the newest standalone in the Reaper's MC Series.  Painter & Melanie's story is FINALLY here!

The New York Times bestselling author of Reaper’s Stand is back in her “uber-alpha rough world of MCs”* as one woman’s future is rocked by the man whose hardcore past could destroy her…
He never meant to hurt her.
Levi “Painter” Brooks was nothing before he joined the Reapers motorcycle club. The day he patched in, they became his brothers and his life. All they asked in return was a strong arm and unconditional loyalty—a loyalty that’s tested when he’s caught and sentenced to prison for a crime committed on their behalf.

Melanie Tucker may have had a rough start, but along the way she’s learned to fight for her future. She’s escaped from hell and started a new life, yet every night she dreams of a biker whose touch she can’t forget. It all started out so innocently—just a series of letters to a lonely man in prison. Friendly. Harmless. Safe.

Now Painter Brooks is coming home… and Melanie’s about to learn that there’s no room for innocence in the Reapers MC.

“You want to watch a movie or something?” she asked, nodding toward the TV. I had a decent one, too. Giant-ass flat-screen—homecoming present from the club.
“Sure,” I said, reaching for the remote. I didn’t have cable, but Ruger had set up some kind of box thingie for me so I could stream shit. “Whatcha in the mood for?”
“Not horror,” she said quickly, and I laughed again, remembering that first evening I’d spent with her at Pic’s house. She’d been so young and scared and vulnerable . . . I’d wanted to eat her up.
I still wanted to eat her.
“I can’t believe that you and Puck were supposed to be watching over me, and then you put in a slasher movie. That’s not how you make a girl feel safe.”
“No horror,” I agreed, although the thought of holding her for a couple hours while she was scared shitless appealed way more than it should. Watch it, asshole. “How about Star Wars?”
“You like Star Wars?”
I shrugged. “Everyone likes Star Wars. You know, I’m pretty damned sure Han Solo was a biker.”
She giggled. “You mean, like a space biker?”
“See, when you say it like that it sounds stupid.”
“I wanted to be Princess Leia. She’s badass,” she said, taking a deep drink of her beer. I watched as her lips wrapped around the neck, her throat swallowing. Oh fuck, that was good. She set the beer down on the coffee table with a clink, then let loose with the biggest burp I’d ever heard.
“Fucking hell,” I said, stunned. “I didn’t think girls could burp like that. Shit. Impressive, Mel. Very impressive.”
She grinned at me.
“We’re friends,” she told me. “And friends don’t need to worry about stuff like that. Let me guess—you’ve never had a female friend before?”
“Not really,” I admitted. “I’m think I’m a little scared.”
Scared and turned on, which was weird.
“You should be. I can do the whole alphabet.”
Damn. I kinda wanted to see that.

We finally get to see Melanie and Painter's story!!!! Having met Jo in Vegas this year, I was very excited to read this book. Ever since they were introduced in the previous books, there have been hints here and there about the future of their relationship. For first time readers, Painter and Mel met when they were in their teens (Painter's a little older). Painter was starting out as a prospect for the Reapers motorcycle club and Mel was a friend of Jessica, London's niece. FYI, London is the Old Lady (wifey-like) to the club's president, Reese "Picnic" Hayes.  In flashbacks, we see the interactions between Painter and Mel that solidified their relationship….and then Painter gets sent to jail. While Painter is spending some time in prison, Mel is by herself and pregnant. Fast forward to present time, Painter is working as an artist with a unique painting style. He makes a pretty good living and is totally loves with his daughter, Izzy. He has a strained joint custody relationship with Mel, who works as an ER nurse. Mel gets set up on a blind date by a co-worker and crap on a cracker, he turns out to be a "hang-around" for another club. Painter loses his shit, pounds the sucker into the ground, and have some very hot hate-sex with Mel. Despite his affiliation to the club, he loves Mel and Izzy. I love the journey Mel and Painter had towards their HEA. While both parties were equally responsible for the deterioration of their relationship the first time around, they both made an effort to rebuilding their relationship from the ground up. I absolutely can't wait to read the next one.
