The New York Times bestselling author of Reaper’s Stand is back in her “uber-alpha rough world of MCs”* as one woman’s future is rocked by the man whose hardcore past could destroy her…

He never meant to hurt her.

Levi “Painter” Brooks was nothing before he joined the Reapers motorcycle club. The day he patched in, they became his brothers and his life. All they asked in return was a strong arm and unconditional loyalty—a loyalty that’s tested when he’s caught and sentenced to prison for a crime committed on their behalf.

Melanie Tucker may have had a rough start, but along the way she’s learned to fight for her future. She’s escaped from hell and started a new life, yet every night she dreams of a biker whose touch she can’t forget. It all started out so innocently—just a series of letters to a lonely man in prison. Friendly. Harmless. Safe.

Now Painter Brooks is coming home… and Melanie’s about to learn that there’s no room for innocence in the Reapers MC.

“You want to watch a movie or something?” she asked, nodding toward the TV. I had a decent one, too. Giant-ass flat-screen—homecoming present from the club.
“Sure,” I said, reaching for the remote. I didn’t have cable, but Ruger had set up some kind of box thingie for me so I could stream shit. “Whatcha in the mood for?”
“Not horror,” she said quickly, and I laughed again, remembering that first evening I’d spent with her at Pic’s house. She’d been so young and scared and vulnerable . . . I’d wanted to eat her up.
I still wanted to eat her.
“I can’t believe that you and Puck were supposed to be watching over me, and then you put in a slasher movie. That’s not how you make a girl feel safe.”
“No horror,” I agreed, although the thought of holding her for a couple hours while she was scared shitless appealed way more than it should. Watch it, asshole. “How about Star Wars?”
“You like Star Wars?”
I shrugged. “Everyone likes Star Wars. You know, I’m pretty damned sure Han Solo was a biker.”
She giggled. “You mean, like a space biker?”
“See, when you say it like that it sounds stupid.”
“I wanted to be Princess Leia. She’s badass,” she said, taking a deep drink of her beer. I watched as her lips wrapped around the neck, her throat swallowing. Oh fuck, that was good. She set the beer down on the coffee table with a clink, then let loose with the biggest burp I’d ever heard.
“Fucking hell,” I said, stunned. “I didn’t think girls could burp like that. Shit. Impressive, Mel. Very impressive.”
She grinned at me.
“We’re friends,” she told me. “And friends don’t need to worry about stuff like that. Let me guess—you’ve never had a female friend before?”
“Not really,” I admitted. “I’m think I’m a little scared.”
Scared and turned on, which was weird.
“You should be. I can do the whole alphabet.”
Damn. I kinda wanted to see that.

My 5 Star Review

I have been waiting for Painter’s HEA for what feels like forever and now it’s here, and it was completely worth the wait! If you follow the series, which I hope you do, you know that Painter has had his struggles. He had a rough childhood and as an adult he hasn’t always made the best decisions. That is his driving force behind denying and fighting his feelings for Melanie.
“She was different. Special. Just touching her felt better than F anyone else, and I didn’t want to settle. Felt like the real thing.” 

Melanie is the surrogate daughter to London and roommates with Jess. She has always been the responsible one, focused on her future and driven. But since she spent one night getting to know Levi Painter Brooks she can’t quit thinking about him. Mel and Painter’s story spans multiple years and really begins when Painter is prison with Puck. During that time the two wrote letters and really get to know each other.

I absolutely loved these letters and seeing their thoughts and feelings. When Painter is released Melanie is open with her feelings for him, but he denies her advances. He feels Melanie is too good for him, his life, the MC world. But in the end he can’t deny his attraction to her and once he lets go an inch he is gone.

I read my first MC book back in 2013 and afterwards I was on a mission to read them all. This series is by far one of my absolute favorites. Wylde has created this other world that feels completely authentic. Her characters are real to me and watching Painter and Melanie navigate their relationship made me sigh, cry and just hurt for them. Their story isn’t always pretty, honestly some parts broke my heart. But all that aside I felt for them and I felt their connection.

Reaper’s Fall was a perfect MC story. I loved the continuation of the club story. I love how the clubs are intermingling and creating this huge MC world I am not convinced exists. With every book I feel like we are getting more and more of the rest of the story. Wylde did an amazing job in the telling of this story. I loved how it went back in time and then gradually brought us forward, at times overlapping other stories.

I love how these two broken people found a way to be complete with each other. I loved Izzy and how she bonded them together. For serious, I just loved it all. If you are a fan of MC stories you have to read this story, but start at the beginning this series is EPIC good!
