Book Summary
 
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?
 
 
My Review 
 

Can you say YES? This series is a hit and I haven’t yet been disappointed in any of the books so far. The only disappointment is having to wait for the next installment.
How many sexy bikers in one series? Oh, let me count them. This series has it all from adventure, thriller, sexy time, hot bikers and kickass heroines. I can’t imagine reading another biker series by any other author and it being this good.
Up in this series, we have Picnic. So he’s not a hot twenty something or even thirty. And I’ll admit I had my doubts, but damn if I didn’t want to jump on the forty something and have hot monkey sex. Picnic made me want to scream YES.
Okay, so if I have all of this praise, why not 5 hearts?
Well, two minor issues. One is the prologue. By the end of the first chapter, I knew what was going to happen. I almost wish the prologue wasn’t there. I might have been more surprised by the turn of events. But honestly, after past meets prologue in the story, I had no idea how the author would turn the events around. And I’ll leave it at that for spoiler sake. Still, I had to take some off for predictability based on the prologue part.
The other issue was the feel of insta love. Although the characters don’t admit it to each other outloud, they muse on love only a week into their relationship. And for me that’s fast. I will say that it felt more like they straddled the line of insta love seeing that they knew and crushed on each other for a good while before they got together. For that, I won’t take off as much.
Still, this was a story worth listening to. It knocked my socks off and held me tight until I finished.
Audio Review
Tatiana Sokolov and Sean Crisen and did good jobs. Tatiana did an excellent job at both female and male voices. Sean, new to the lineup also did a good job with his side of things. Although, I didn’t much care for his choice of voice for Ruger or the softer voice for Horse, but all in all good.
My Book boyfriend is Picnic Reese Hayes.
