WELCOME TO THE CLUB
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…
I first found Joanna Wylde last year when I read the first book in her Reaper’s Motor Cycle Club series. I didn’t know what to think when I started Reaper’s Property but I really enjoyed it and it led me to a ton of other great motorcycle romances, if you will. The story has stuck with me and when I saw #2 was coming out, I was dying to find out the next chapter in this fabulous new series.
As a teen, Sophie was already a mother living on her own. Having had a baby with Zach Barrett, a total loser and terrible father, Sophie finally grows tired of his abusive ways and leaves. Years go by until Sophie has finally reached the end of her rope. Living in a terrible apartment,being a single parent, receiving no child support, going to a poor job and with no family, Sophie needs help desperately. A phone call from her son to Zach’s brother, Ruger changes her world in an instant.
Ruger has always been attracted to Sophie, but never really acted on it. Beyond being the mother of his beloved nephew, Ruger felt she was always off limits to him. Sophie never understood his dedication to the motorcycle club he belongs to and really didn’t have a desire to. One of the most important aspects of his life and Sophie is intimidated and fears the club. Yet his attraction never abates and as Sophie intrudes into his life more and more, Ruger finds more reasons to be with Sophie than ever before.
Sophie slowly finds that there may be more to the motorcycle club than what she thinks. As she starts to care for the people within the club, she starts to see Ruger in a different light as well. Even though it may a dangerous life, Sophie and Ruger see it may be worth it to spend it together.
An ultimately sweet story about two very different people coming together, I was up until 2:30am finishing Sophie and Ruger’s romance. Wylde creates the perfect tension of will they won’t they that just begs to be read. Some of the scenarios in the book are a bit hard to believe, but within the world Wylde has created they are completely plausible. With fantastic secondary characters, a hot romance, and a wonderfully emotionally rich story create a great followup...and only whet your whistle for what’s coming next.
