REVIEW – REAPER’S FALL (Reapers MC #5) by Joanna Wylde

reaper's fall cover


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’re the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen,” I managed to say, and I meant every word. “I have no idea how I’m lucky enough to be here with you right now, but please know you have my eternal appreciation.”Christ, did I just grow a pussy?


I completely LOVED this one!!!!
It was well worth the wait to get Painter’s story!

Ever since “Reaper’s Stand”, I’ve been dying to get to Painter’s story. The whole attraction between Painter and Melanie was eluded to but I felt it was a HUGE TEASE!!! I finished this one yesterday and I ABSOFREAKINGLUTELY LOVED IT!!!!!

Boy, I never thought that Painter could make me question who could be my #1 Reaper! Horse and Picnic have always been my top faves, but DAMN, Painter is definitely a top contender as well. There’s something about a man who is an artist. I just never knew that he had so much depth to him!

Everyone thinks Painter is this manwhore, who is incapable of committing to one woman, but all of that changes when he meets Melanie Tucker. Mel is London’s niece, Jessica’s, best friend. London had taken Mel in after her mother had abandoned her. During all of the crazy drama that ensued during Reaper’s Stand, Painter and Mel formed a friendship that definitely had deep undertones of attraction. They became pen pals while Painter was in prison for several years.

Once he’s back home, there is no stopping him from going after the girl of his dreams. Even though at first he tries to fight his feelings, it becomes apparent that it’s a losing battle for him. Mel is also incredibly hung up on Painter. Things get seriously hot and heavy between them, which leads to an unplanned pregnancy.

There’s major drama that develops which causes the two to go their separate ways for a while. But Painter does go through a bit of an awakening and is hell bent on making things right between he and Mel.

I had the best time reading this book. Never did I feel like it dragged. Oftentimes I felt the need for a cold shower. The action is nail-biting intense, just as you would expect from a Reaper’s story!!

We get an extra epilogue at the end for Gage and Tinker. I am seriously hoping that they get their own book. Ms. Wylde, do you hear me?????!!!

Go on and one click this bad boy!! You seriously WILL NOT be disappointed!!

Melanie Tucker aka Mel hasn’t lived the easiest life. After her mom disappears, she is taken in by her best friend Jessica’s aunt London. London is engaged to the president of the Reapers MC of Idaho, so Mel is suddenly around a bunch of bikers. One in particular catches her eye right away. His name is Levi Brooks but everyone calls him Painter. He’s blonde, full of muscles, & drop dead gorgeous! They become friends, but Mel secretly wants more from this delicious bad boy! He totally does it for her in every way, & she’s lusting over him bad!!!


Just as they are getting to know each other better, Painter is sent to prison over some club business gone wrong. Mel writes him letters while he’s away & they grow closer. Painter can’t quit thinking of Mel, but when he comes home from prison he tries to keep his distance. He really cares about her, & thinks she deserves better than him. His good intentions don’t last long, when he finally realizes he just can’t resist her anymore. He’s never been in a relationship, but he’s never felt this way before. He decides to finally claim Mel & make her his in every way, & OMG is it HOT AS HELL!!!


-“I want you to be my old lady.”

-“But I’m not old.”

-“You’re not always a lady, either.”


As they become more serious, things get complicated. Painter continues to be loyal to his brothers & the motorcycle club, & Mel comes to realize she will never come first. She doesn’t want to put time & energy into a relationship with a man she can’t count on to be there. She decides to focus on herself & her own life.


Over about five years Painter is a part of Mel’s life. He’s in & out of prison & things aren’t always easy, but the love is always there. These two really are crazy in love with each other. Painter is completely gone over this woman. She is his whole heart & he realizes she is everything to him.


There really is nothing better than a hot badass biker with a tender side. I LOVED Painter so much in this book! Total swoon worthy biker yumminess! I highly recommend this one! 😀
