I first met Reese "Picnic" Hayes in book one of this series, as he is the President of the Reaper's MC in Northern Idaho. He has two daughters and besides them, he has devoted his entire life to his Motorcycle Club and will stop at nothing to protect it. He lost his wife to cancer several years ago, and since then he uses women as a distraction. He knows the love of his life has passed and will likely never have that type of connection again. That is, until he meets London Armstrong, the owner of the club's new cleaning service. There's just something about her that he can't quite put his finger on, but he knows he has to find out what it is.
London Armstrong has devoted her entire life to her young cousin, Jessica. She has moved mountains to make sure she is well cared for and safe. For the past six years, since London has been her guardian, she has little time outside of Jessica and her business. When she meets Reece, she know she is attracted to him, but he is dangerous, so she does her best to keep things professional. Jessica might be 18, but she is reckless with her decisions and often is in need of her cousin's help. When Jessica gets herself into trouble with a dangerous Cartel, Reece just might be the only one who can help London save Jessica.
I loved this book from start to finish. The world that Joanna Wylde has created in her Reaper's Series is one that I don't want to leave. I immediately one-clicked the next one in this series to find out what happens next!
Everyone who has read the series up until now knows that Picnic lost his wife tragically. What Joanna Wylde does with the storyline is just brilliant and my heart felt so much. Reese “Picnic” Hayes is the epitome of the Reaper Prez we know and love, always has been. Seeing all sides of him as opposed to just one dimensional was such an incredible experience to have read.
This book is outstanding, the whole series is, no doubt but this book has a little more to it that gave it a deeper place in my heart than the others. (Don’t tell Horse & Marie bc if it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t be reading these books haha) #truth

Then, there's London. While not my favorite female in the Reaper's series (that goes to Em), she is definitely second. She has a strong sense of loyalty and unconditional love. I loved how she tried so hard to be open minded. When she walks through the Reaper's clubhouse and sees people sharing their "affection" openly for whoever to see she's taken aback and could've been incredibly judgemental. However, she has some initial wth? moments, then reminds herself, "Not my place to judge. They're adults and that's their decision and has nothing to do with me," then she continues along her way and moves forward. I personally may not want to watch open sex acts either, but I appreciate how Wylde presented London. She didn't agree with some things she saw while around the Reaper's but she wasn't above it all either. I hate it when a character comes into a different world, so to say, and automatically starts thinking how wrong everyone around them is. Yeah, you may not agree with what's happening around you, but like London thought, "Not my business." They're not hurting anyone so check your judgement at the door.
I also liked the end of the story when London really developed a kick-ass take names later attitude. She didn't care anymore and left fear behind. She saw a problem ahead of her and was going to fix the problem she was partially responsible for. She didn't care what happened in the end as long as those she loved were safe. I respected her quite a bit by the end of the story.
Top international reviews
Dull repetitive text about the characters sitting around trying to figure out what to do. I didn't particularly like the characters either. This author writes males who cross the line of dominant Alpha, into disgusting pigs, and female's who are complete pushovers. Loni is 38 but despite claiming to be 'mature' and 'who knows better', she gives up all her own standards just because she is horny.
The story is not believable. The author did not write any emotion or dread in to the scene where the male lead tells his woman that her adopted daughter was hurt by multiple men repeatedly. There's no emotional reaction to her hearing it, not even in an internal monologue. She doesn't ask after his daughter, who almost dies from a miscarriage etc. There are so many gaps in this book and it's so lacking depth. I can't believe how dull it is to read yet has so many high reviews.
Even the vocabulary is limited, the same phrases are used in all the books, which makes reading not only the individual books tiresome, but the series as a whole tedoous. The writing is immature and basic, even the sex scenes are basic. I will still.read Cookie and Zeke's story if it comes out but just cannot give this more than 2 stars.
Picnic (Reese) likes London, the boss of the cleaning company he uses. She is going out with a deputy, Nate, but actually likes Picnic too, fantasizing about him.
Fast forward a few months from their first meeting and things start falling into place. Others soon though fall out.
The book contains everything a biker book should.
Suitable for older readers due to content.
I'd say download it and enjoy it.
I LOVE THIS BOOK.
I love the fact that the main characters are not in their twenties.
I love the story line
I love seeing characters from the other Reapers books.
In all honesty I can’t think of a bad thing to say – apart from it’s only 321 pages – so far too short….
It will be a true disaster if this series ever ends….
Even though Picnic’s been in all the previous books this story still carried me away – it’s excellent that the narrative is sustained over the whole series without intruding new players.
Loved Picnic in the first 3 books loved him in this and loved Loni even more so much happen between them in just a few weeks it's amazing but also terrifying too just brilliant
Joanna your such a tease I want more please !!!!!!!!
One of the best biker series.
Love this series. She has done her homework well regarding MC Clubs.
It's gritty and raw, with a little bit of softness from our biker men.
Love the tease in the extra epilogue.
