Reaper's Stand (Reapers MC, #4) 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?

Book 4 in the wildly successful and utterly fantastic Reaper's MC series.
So we finally get Picnic's book... I have to say, I have been waiting rather impatiently for his time to come, having always had a soft spot for the Club president. Devil's Game left me seriously chomping at the bit for a little bit more of him, so as soon as this baby arrived I jumped straight on in.
Reece Hayes otherwise known as Picnic lost his wife Heather to cancer 5 years ago. Devastated and bitter at being left alone to bring up their daughters, he has smothered his daughters and spent the rest of his time on a merry-go-round with an endless supply of easy girls younger than his own kids. That is until he meets London.
London owns a local cleaning company that has started working in some of the Reaper businesses, she is also bringing up her 18 year old Cousin who has health issue and special needs. When Jessica makes one to many wrong decisions and ends up at the MC club, London chases after her, recruiting Picnic to help her out.
And so begins a interesting relationship of push and pull. With London dating the local deputy, Picnic may need to up his game. But when things start to go wrong will they pull together or will they in fact become each other's enemy.
What can I say about this series that hasn't already been said. I am a self confessed MC junkie and have read most books out there in this genre. This series really ranks up there as one of the best. It has a really good mix of club life, violence, family, loyalty and plenty of good old steam. This instalment certainly doesn't disappoint.
Picnic is officially my favourite brother, (okay, he always has been) he really is everything you would expect in an MC president. Strong, alpha, protective, loving and seriously bossy, he made me fall in love with him a little bit more. London is his perfect woman. He has never wanted to find a permanent "Old Lady" as he had one in Heather, but sweet little London enters his life and surprises him at every turn. Let me tell you that woman has balls of steel. Of course you get to catch up with some old pals along the way, particularly Em and Hunter. This book really has this whole family vibe thing going on and I loved it.
Another brilliant slice of life in the Idaho Hills. I now eagerly anticipate book 5, I have an idea who it's about (not Painter yet unfortunately) and it should be another fab addition to the series. Joanna even gives us a bonus epilogue at the end giving us a glimpse at life thirteen years down the line. This though just leaves us with even more questions that need answering. Please don't keep us waiting too long I beg you ;)
If you are already a fan of this series it really is a MUST read. For readers interested in reading an MC Romance, this really is a fantastic example of this genre and I highly recommend it.
