Reaper's Fall (Reapers Motorcycle Club Book 5) by Joanna Wylde
Overall star rating --- 4
About the book:
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.

The review --
This is the first book in the Reapers MC series that I’ve read and I really liked it! The book starts with Melanie coming into a bar on a date with a man and Painter, her ex, is there and has a conniption fit. We find out that they have a child together and that’s the only thing that’s keeping Painter from murdering Melanie’s date, then Painter grabs Melanie and drags her away… then we go back in time 5 years. Mel is writing letters to Painter in prison and they’re getting to know one another. Painter doesn’t believe he’s good enough for Mel and when he gets released from prison, he kind of ignores her. They go back and forth with this for a while and the sexual tension between the two builds and builds. When they finally give in to the sexual tension and begin a relationship it’s ruined by “club business.” Mel wants a man that puts her first and has a hard time understanding why Painter is always putting the club first.
I’m giving it a 4 star rating for the simple fact that I hated the way it started and then we went back in time. I personally don’t read books that are written that way because I have no patience and I find myself skimming to get back to the present. It’s a well written book with a great flow, and I didn’t want to put it down once I started reading it. It has just the right amount of humor, steamy sex, and intriguing mystery to make it a great read. I highly recommend checking it out. I’m definitely going to be looking into other books from this series!
