Blog Tour: Reaper's Stand by Joanna Wylde

As Reapers Motorcycle Club president, Reese “Picnic” Hayes has given his entire life to the club. After losing his wife, he knew he’d never love another woman. And with two daughters to raise and a club to manage, that was just fine with him. These days, Reese keeps his relationships free and easy—he definitely doesn’t want to waste his time on a glorified cleaning lady like London Armstrong.

Too bad he’s completely obsessed with her.

Besides running her own business, London’s got her junkie cousin’s daughter to look after—a more reckless than average eighteen-year-old. Sure she’s attracted to the Reapers’ president, but she’s not stupid. Reese Hayes is a criminal and a thug. But when her young cousin gets caught up with a ruthless drug cartel, Reese might be the only man who can help her. Now London has to make the hardest decision of her life—how far will she go to save her family?

She's done it again! Joanna Wylde has given us yet another Reaper's man to swoon over. Yes, we've met Picnic before, but never like this. We get all up close and personal with him in Reaper's Stand and I have to say, he may just be the hottest Reaper yet!

Picnic has had a hard-on for London since he saw her six months ago. But he has kept it in his pants when it comes to her because she is different than his usual one night stands. The feelings she evokes in him are also not something he is used to. He has no plans to have an old lady ever again after losing Heater, his wife, six years ago. So, he steers clear of little Miss London.

But everyone has a breaking point.

When these two finally give in to the pent up lust they have for one another, things explode. Literally! London's house is blown up and suddenly a whole lot of intel heads Pic's way that shines a pretty bad light on London. Is she just an innocent bystander caught up in the middle of someone else's game or is she a power player that has duped the prez of the Reaper's MC?

So many questions pop up through this book and watching how they all play out is INTENSE! Things go from 0 to 60 before you even have a chance to catch your breath. I seriously have not felt that rush in the Reaper books since Reaper's Property. And I loved every damn minute of it!
“Okay, let’s get some shit straight and then you can head out.” Great, here it came. The Talk. Fortunately I was ahead of him for once.
“Don’t worry, Reese. I know this was just a one-off for you, and that you don’t want a relationship. That’s what I needed, too, so in a way it’s perfect. No harm, no foul. We can just pretend this never happened.”

A scowl covered his face. “What the fuck are you talking about?”

“Us. Or rather, the fact that there isn’t an ‘us.’ I get it—you like to sleep around. I had a good time, but I’m not expecting a ring or anything.”


His eyes widened, and I smirked.


“Although I’ll be around if you want another booty call,” I added slyly.

Yay me! I’m a sophisticated woman who knows the difference between love and sex.

Reese’s scowl grew deeper, and then suddenly he moved and I was under him, pinned down against the bed. He pulled my hands up, holding them prisoner above my head.

“Are you fucked in the head?” he demanded harshly. “You get laid for the first time in years, it’s phenomenal—”

“Well, aren’t you the modest one?”


It’s phenomenal,” he repeated, emphasizing the word heavily. “And now you’re just going to ignore me? I am not fuckin’ down with that.”

High Stakes Banner
Title: High Stakes (The Kingdom, #2)
Author: Nikki Groom
Release Date: October 24, 2014
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance

“Stupid. Beautiful. Girl. How did you ever think you could be free?”

The last words I heard before the darkness took me and my dreams were shattered

I was on my way to having it all.
Friends, family and a future.
Everything I had wished for but never thought possible.

Denham King showed me just how good life could be. A life where love and happiness were within reach.


I should have known it would never last.
My past is a dark, damp cloud, that has seeped into my skin and left a cold promise.
A promise of hurt and pain.
A promise of a long, hard fight, where the stakes are high and the risks threaten lives.

When your world gets thrown in all directions, and your dreams for the future are torn from your grasp; how do you go on?

Can I fight the demons that haunt me?
Can love save me from fate’s cruel path?

High Stakes is the conclusion to The Kingdom Series. It is not a stand alone. Holding Aces is book 1 and should be read first.

“Arianna, dear. It’s nice to see you again.” Amy pushes past my shoulder, inviting herself in and taking ownership of the air around us. “Although, I wasn’t expecting to see so much,” she sneers, letting her eyes drift down the length of my legs. 

I stand tall, trying not to be intimidated by her, trying to stand my ground in my apartment, but instantly feeling threatened by the way her body reacts to me, and the way her gaze makes me feel cold and uncomfortable. 

She lifts her hand toward me, and tucks a long, red, predatory nail under the collar of the white shirt I am wearing, lifting it between her fingertips and gently brushing against my collarbone through the fabric as she does. It sends chills through me. She’s cold. Her aura, her demeanor, and her intentions are all icy and it radiates from her in steady pulses.

“I bet he likes you in this. I bet he asked you to wear it, am I wrong?”

Of course, she’s not wrong. She’s pretty much as correct as can fucking be. I swallow hard. Shards of her persona stick into me like little icy pins. Her words, like little needles of reality, stab into my veins. She knows him better than I do. She knows what he likes, and what he doesn’t. Has he asked her to wear his shirt for him?

Has he told her to dress in nothing but heels and diamonds for him?
The thoughts make me feel sick. But, I know that she’s playing me. I've seen Denham’s reaction to her. I’ve seen the contempt in his eyes when her name is mentioned, and I’ve felt the tension radiate from him when he encounters her. She’s a bitch. Pure and simple.

Review: Love Under Two Wranglers by Cara Covington

Holly discovers the difference between book boyfriends and real-life lovers when Alan Wilson and Duncan Moore aim for her. Alan and Duncan recognize Holly as theirs. Now they just have to convince the virginal librarian that they can live up to any fictional heroes.

As Holly learns to trust those smokin’ hot wranglers, she dares to explore her sensual side—the woman within longing to sample all the delights she loved to read about.

Alan and Duncan already know that Lusty is home, and once they get to know Holly they understand she’s the woman that’s always been destined to be theirs. They long to give her the happy-ever-after she’s dreamed of. Then their past comes back to bite them in the ass.

Years before, they helped uncover a conspiracy, in which racehorses were killed for profit. They didn’t take the threats against them seriously then, but they’re about to discover just how deadly a woman scorned can be.

A Siren Erotic Romance
The cover of this book was the first thing that interested me.  Two hot sexy cowboys and a gorgeous girl.  I could only imagine what they could possibly get up to and believe me I was not disappointed in the hotness level of this story.
Let's go back to the beginning of this story.  Set in the town of Lusty.  Holly is the librarian at the Lusty Library and one day these two gorgeous men walk in to join up but what they really wanted to do is to meet Holly, they have had their eye on her.  Holly has read plenty of erotic menage books and even though she is very inexperienced, she is hoping these two could make her fictional day dreams into reality.
In the town of Lusty it is not uncommon for women to enter into relationships or marriage with 2 or 3 men.  The ultimate goal of these men is to pleasure their woman so a win win really. Alan, Duncan and Holly are really hot together and the sex scenes are insanely hot.
There is lots of sexiness, a bit of drama and lots more sexiness to make you feel better after all the drama is sorted.
This was a very easy sexy read for me.  I give this 3.5 stars
