Reaper's Legacy (Reapers MC, #2) by Joanna Wylde
Reaper's Legacy is a raw and intensely erotic tale in Joanna Wylde's Reapers Motorcycle Club series.
Eight years ago, Sophie gave her heart-and her virginity-to Zach Barrett on a night that couldn't have been less romantic or more embarrassing. Zach's step-brother, a steely-muscled, tattooed biker named Ruger, caught them in the act, getting a peep show of Sophie he's never forgotten.
She may have lost her dignity that fateful night, but Sophie also gained something precious-her son Noah. Unfortunately, Zach's a deadbeat dad, leaving Ruger to be Noah's only male role model. When he discovers Sophie and his nephew living in near poverty, Ruger takes matters into his own hands-with the help of the Reapers Motorcycle Club-to give them a better life.
Living with outlaw bikers wasn't Sophie's plan for her son, but Ruger isn't giving her a choice. He'll be there for Noah, whether she wants him or not. But Sophie does want him, has always wanted him. Now she'll learn that taking a biker to bed can get a girl dirty in every way.

You just know it's going to be one crazy ride - no holds bar, take no prisoners, hang on by the thread of your pants and hold your breath love story!
Ruger and Sophie: brought together by a very unique situation, and then bound together with an incredible bond that neither one was willing to let go of, although they both fought hard not to face it...
well done ms Wylde... can't wait for the next one!!

‘The man was like heroin – seductive, addictive, and a damned good way to wake up dead.’ - Sophie
Ah, there ain't nuthin' better than taking a fictitious ride into unchartered territory with a notorious Motorcycle Club and coming out of it unscathed and hotter than a bitch in heat...throw me a bone here because I'm just begging for more!
What is it about these territorial bad boys…these leather clad one percenters who play by their own rules, live a life of underground crime and have no misconceptions of taking what they feel is rightfully theirs, that has me and my fellow MC book lovin' sisters swooning with envious desire? I can only assume it dates back to those Neanderthal days when we secretly loved to be pulled around by our hair and grunted at… 'me man, you woman’, yada yada yada. Well, whatever it is, I can't seem to get enough of it and trust me when I say, these boys from Idaho know how to get my engine revvin. Patch me in baby and lets ride because I just love these guys. Picnic, Horse, BAM BAM, and Rugar are back and WOW, Joanna Wylde certainly did not disappoint with this sequel!
Rugar and Sophie's story was so refreshing because the main focus here, besides having the serious hots for one another, is the welfare of a 7 year old little boy addicted to Skylanders (Oh... how I can relate, you have no idea).
Walking in on the moment Sophie lost her virginity on his worn couch is not something he has forgotten easily, especially as it was also the moment she got knocked up by his little deadbeat Half Brother. Pulled together by circumstance, all it took was one night by the side of the road to change everything. If there is anything Rugar loves more in this world than the Reaper MC it is Noah, Sophie and Zach's little boy.
With Zach shirking his parental responsibilities, Rugar steps in and plays the Uncle role perfectly, but it's hard seeing the girl, who at only 17 held him tight and put her trust in him, clung to him as if he was her only life line. Sophie got under his skin that night, but when she ups sticks and leaves Idaho and moves to Seattle to embrace the trials of single parenthood a couple of years later, he knows that following her is an impossibility - his home is here with the Reapers MC. So, he visits occasionally, as and when he can, while keeping an eye from a safe distance.
That is until one night, five years later, when Noah makes a distress call to his Uncle and Rugar decides to close the distance and take matters into his own hands, the only way he knows how... And he's not taking no for an answer.
Reapers Legacy is a great book, it would have been a solid five but Sophie's inability to make up her damn mind gave me serious bouts of whiplash and I felt like slapping her! I also felt it was a little tamed down on the angst factor, I would have liked just a little more where that came from. However, Sophie's marguerita lovin' friend Kimber was a total riot and gave me a good chuckle or two and I can't end this review without mentioning Rugar again, throughout it all he was my champion - pure sinfully wicked bikerlicious! And, nope..not quite finished - getting reacquainted with Marie and Horse felt just like coming home. All in all, a brilliantly constructed standalone read with some amazing characters.
They may be scary in their own way but they've got heart, and they have just taken a piece of mine!
Can't wait for the next one...our girl Em deserves a piece of the action and Hunter has his work cut out. Bring it on, I say!
Reapers Forever, Forever Reapers!
