REVIEW – SHADE’s LADY (Reapers MC, #6.5) by Joanna Wylde


New York Times bestselling author Joanna Wylde returns to the world of the Reapers Motorcycle Club…

Looking back, none of this would’ve happened if I hadn’t dropped my phone in the toilet. I mean, I could’ve walked away from him if I’d had it with me.
Or maybe not.
Maybe it was all over the first time he saw me, and he would’ve found another way. Probably—if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that Shade always gets what he wants, and apparently he wanted me.
Right from the first.

For the first time in my life, I couldn’t imagine riding out for the next city without taking a woman with me. You fucked up, man. This is gonna get complicated.


Once again, we are privileged to be able to spend more time with the REAPERS MC. They are one of my favorite outlaw biker gangs. Each Hero we meet is over the top ALPHA and oozing with panty melting sex appeal! They’re rough around the edges and most definitely caveman-ish, but somehow I bet most of us wouldn’t mind being owned by one of these Outlaws. Move over Horse and Picnic, there’s a new Reaper who has won over my heart and his name is SHADE!!

Not only did I love the Hero, I found the Heroine to be quite funny and I loved her strong independent personality. Mandy McBride has had her life turned upside down by men she had misguidedly put her trust in. Her ex-husband made her an unwitting accomplice to a robbery when he had her drop him off and wait in the car for him. It was obvious to the police that she was innocent but she still ended up getting sentenced with a misdemeanor and having to serve six months unsupervised probation. She gets the approval to relocate to the town her older sister is currently living in. Mandy’s sister is another McBride woman who chose poorly in the man department and has been left practically destitute with her three little girls. Mandy comes to help her sister take care of her little nieces. She ends up getting a job waitressing at a local bar, that is the hangout spot for the Reapers MC when they’re in town. Mandy has noticed the hot as hell National President of the Reaper’s but she knows he is a REALLY BAD IDEA, wrapped up in a beautiful package! Little does she know that she has caught his eye as well.

One night, after a huge misunderstanding, she ends up back at the Reaper’s Club with Shade. Her current no good boyfriend offered her up to Shade as partial payment for a motorcycle. Mandy had no idea that she was basically whore’d out, but there’s hell to pay once she learns the truth. Deep inside she is wildly attracted to Shade and fights an internal battle over giving in to her physical need for the man, but she knows Shade doesn’t have it in him to stay around for the long haul, and she’s not looking to be a notch on his belt.

Shade is not used to being turned down by a woman and Mandy’s rejection of him only spurs him on more to claim her as his. He’s got his eyes on the prize and he’ll pull out all the stops. Eventually, it turns out that Mandy’s inner ”Wonder Woman” is no match for Shade’s seductive charms. They end up having one amazing night between the sheets with the understanding that it is only to be a one-time deal, but it turns out neither one of them is ready to let go. But as feelings start to intensify, are they enough to make Shade and Mandy want to take a risk on giving their hearts to each other?

As with every Reapers book, there is the element of danger and when the lives of their women are in jeopardy, these guys take no prisoners! No one messes with their Property!!

SHADE’S LADY is currently available!! You’ll definitely not want to miss out on this entertaining novella!

*****Mel’s Review*****

4.5 Stars!



Mandy McBride is a 27 yr. old woman who has been through some hard times. She moved to Violetta, Idaho about six months ago to live with her sister & help her out with her kids. Trouble & bad men seem to find her anywhere she goes. She calls it the curse of the McBride women. If there’s a loser in the vicinity she always finds them. She wants to change her life. She works as a waitress at a biker bar called The Pit & is casually dating a guy named Rebel. When he burns her like all the rest, she decides men are like poison to her & bad for her health. She’s giving them up for a while since she has such bad taste in men.


Shade is the national president of the Reapers MC. He’s the youngest national president in history. He has a place up north. He’s just in Cranston while traveling & spending time with different chapters. While there he crosses paths with a beautiful woman he met once at a barbecue. She caught his eye when he first met her, & she’s still just as sexy as he remembers. He makes it clear he wants her in his bed & made it well known how interested he is.


Mandy has heard all the rumors about Shade. The Reapers were like MC royalty. Shade was pretty to look at but also scary. He was so stunning he could be a model but was a whole different level of badass than any guy she’d ever been with. She’d been with enough dangerous men to last her a lifetime, so she needed to steer clear of Shade. The problem was Shade is relentless in his pursuit of her. He wants her so bad it’s driving him crazy.


-“I know myself and I know what I don’t need, and that’s a man. They always cause trouble in my life. Always. History doesn’t lie.”

-The man radiated power, strength and raw sex. He was the biggest, nastiest bastard in the room- not to mention easy on the eyes.

-I read all the same things I was feeling in his eyes. Whatever this was between us, it wasn’t one sided and I wasn’t the only one blown away. “You can’t tell me this isn’t happening.”

-“I’ve never felt anything like it in my life.”


Shade is used to getting what he wants, but Mandy makes him work for it. He is patient, and finally, she gives in to temptation & agrees to spend a night with him. One night & no promises of more. She thinks she’s nothing more than a game to Shade, but will she soon learn the man who’s never been willing to settle down in one place wants to claim her as his own?

I really love this series & this book was fantastic! Shade was so damn sexy. He knew what he wanted & was patient till he got it. He was this big badass biker with a tender spot for a woman. I loved his alpha personality & his sense of humor. There’s nothing like a gorgeous, tough biker in love. Really enjoyed this one!
