I loved loved loved all of Joanna Wylde's previous Reapers stories and excitedly expected more of the same with this book.. but sadly it just didn't grab me. So much of the story came from Mandy's inner thoughts.. and yes, very occasionally there were some of Shade's inner thoughts too. Ok so there were some interactions between the characters I guess with a bit of angst, some danger drama, occasional light humor and sex.. but a hell of a lot of the story was taken up by Mandy's constant jaded mental musings about not wanting or needing a man in her life because, in the past, they've all let her and her sister down.
I felt the dark bad boy top dog biker vibe oozing from Shade and I wanted to hear more from him.. yes he was a possessive alpha who rescued Mandy and her sister from certain trouble.. however, there wasn't any romance, tender sentiments, touching thoughts or loving words. Instead these two relationship phobic characters kept having one night stands with each other.. not wanting to commit more - never actually exchanging the I love yous. And not even the excellent narration could save this listen for me.
Worth a credit? For me personally I like a lot more 'doing' between characters and A LOT less 'thinking' about stuff so, for that reason, I sadly have to say no.. and I must admit it became a bit of a chore getting through this one.

Mandy is is down on her luck. She not only got involved in a crime she knew nothing about, but she had been sent to jail because of it. Now, she is in Violetta, Idaho working as a waitress so that she can help her sister raise her three kids. She would love to be free, to travel and to experience things in life, but she has to stay put until her probation is over. This is all because she trusted the wrong man.
Once she moved to town she met Rebel. She enjoyed hanging out with his biker friends and more importantly riding on his bike. But once again, she put her trust into someone she shouldn't. Now she is forced to pay the consequences of his actions.
I have to say, I completely devoured this book. Joanna Wylde has created a world in he Reaper's MC series that I never want to leave. Her characters always have a darker side to them, but underneath, their intentions are pure. You can't help but fall in love with them as they storm their way into your heart. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next.
PS - The audio version of this book only enhances Joanna's talent as an author. Tatiana Sokolov and Sean Crisden do an amazing job of keeping my interest and bringing the characters to life.

Not a bad novella. The protagonists were likeable, particularly the alpha-male biker.
He was brooding, intelligent and alpha. However, the female lead was strong enough to challenge him, which kept the story going.
