Shade's Lady (Reapers MC #6.5) by Joanna Wylde

New York Times bestselling author Joanna Wylde returns to the world of the Reapers Motorcycle Club… 

Looking back, none of this would’ve happened if I hadn’t dropped my phone in the toilet. I mean, I could’ve walked away from him if I’d had it with me.

Or maybe not. 

Maybe it was all over the first time he saw me, and he would’ve found another way. Probably—if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that Shade always gets what he wants, and apparently he wanted me. 

Right from the first. 

Purchase Shade's Lady:

 “You’re full of sh*t!” I said, waving my hand grandly. My drink sloshed and I licked the side of the cup, because this whiskey was way too good to waste even a single drop. “Wonder Woman is better than Batman. She’s got real power, not just fancy toys. Although she has those, too, which means anything Batman can do, she can do better.”
  “Nope,” Shade said, shaking his head seriously. “She’s hot, I’ll give her that, but he’d take her in a fair fight.”
I held up a hand for him to wait as I polished off my booze.
  “No way. She’s a goddess of war and she’s one of the best hand-to-hand fighters in history. She’s got an invisible jet, for God’s sake. How can you compete with that? All he has is a bunch of money and the stupid Batmobile.”
  “Hand over the cup,” Shade said, narrowing his eyes.
  “Why?” I asked, narrowing mine right back. I was good and drunk now, and I wasn’t sure I was ready to be done for the night.
  “Demonstration,” he replied. “C’mon. Or are you chicken?”
  “What are we, kindergartners?”
  “You’re the one insisting Wonder Woman can take Batman,” he replied. “Chicken.”
Then he leaned toward me, raising a single finger to poke me in the center of my chest. Not copping a feel or anything remotely sexual, either. This was pure taunt. I handed him the cup and he tossed it on the floor, nearly falling off the bed in the process. I smirked—guess I wasn’t the only drunk one. Then he started listing to the side and I lunged for him, grabbing his shirt to keep him from going over.
Shade caught my arm, using the momentum to pull me onto his body with sudden force. My hands hit his chest and I raised my head to stare at him, stunned.
  “What the hell are you doing?” I asked. Shade wrapped his arms around my waist, holding me tight to his body.


4.5 Stars

I can't get enough of the Reaper MC men! And add Shade, the President of Reapers, up on that list of bad ass men, who are hot, bossy and get what he wants. And what he wants is Mandy. 

Mandy has a string of bad luck when it comes to men. She ends up choosing men who are wrong and put her in bad situations. She's been staying with her sister to get back on her feet. She's bartending at a local bar to make ends meet and keeping her down. 

But that proves impossible when Shade and his Reapers show up and Mandy ends up waiting on them. And Shade shows her no mercy when he wants her in his bed. What I loved about Shade is that he may be the bad ass President of MC, but he's definitely  has a soft spot, especially when it comes to helping Mandy. 

When bad news lands on Mandy's doorstep, Shade and the boys step in to help, but Mandy is determined to keep Shade at arm's length. Why not have a good time with this hot man, while her life settles back to normal? But it doesn't happen that way, I love how Shade pushes his way into her life, but he's firm on not settling down and has not time for an Old Lady.  

I loved Shade and Mandy's relationship worked for them. Overall, Shade's Lady is a quick, fun and hot read. It's always great to get more Reapers!
