ARC from the author


Book Blurb: 

Rome McGuire knew he was in trouble the first time he saw her. 

She was sweet and pretty and just about perfect in every way. She was also too young and innocent for the Reapers Motorcycle Club. He did the right thing, and walked away. 

The second time, he couldn’t resist tasting her. 

Gorgeous and smart, fun and full of wonder, she jumped on his bike and would’ve followed him anywhere. Still, she deserved a shot at happiness somewhere bigger and better than a town like Hallies Falls. Walking away wasn’t so easy that time, but her family needed her and he had a job to do. 

When she came around a third time, he’d had enough. Randi Whittaker had been given two chances to escape, and now it was time for Rome to take his. 

This time, the only way Randi would be leaving Hallies Falls was on the back of Rome’s bike.

Joanna Wylde is known for her gritty romance, so it may surprise you to know that every time I pick up one of her books, there’s comfort in it. I know that I am just going to be able to settle in and enjoy the ride with my favorite MC. Rome’s Chace was no exception. What I really liked about this book vs. some of the previous in this series is that Randi wasn’t as down on her luck as some of the other heroines. Also – I am a huge sucker for a man who has been carrying a torch for a woman for years, and Rome has it bad for Randi!

After essentially raising her two oldest brothers, Randi’s moved on from that life and away from her mother, and gotten a college education and built her own life. But when she returns to town, she’s surprised to see how bad things are for her two youngest siblings. It’s not long before she realizes she can’t leave them like this, and she decides she needs to return to Hallies Falls and step in. I really liked Randi. She was a go getter, and she had a good head on her shoulders. She wanted to make sure her sister and youngest brother were taken care of, and she was going to do whatever it took to be there for them. Rome was also a wonderful character. He was quite tame compared to previous heroes in this series, but I think that was exactly the kind of hero Randi needed. She was mostly even keeled, but she didn’t always deal with her emotions well, and Rome was able to balance her out in that way, by not taking things personally and just being with her. I loved his back story and how close he was to his family. Peaches was a stand out secondary character for me. I liked that she was the popular girl who may not have ended up with the best life, but she wasn’t the stereotypical bitchy one rearing her ugly head from the past. She was a good person who didn’t let anyone walk all over her friends.

I will say that there was a lot of plot here, and while I did enjoy this story, I think a full-length book could have really dug into some of these plot threads and given us even more of Rome’s back story and how he originally fell for Randi. I enjoyed it anyway and adored Randi and Rome together. As a long-time fan of the Reapers MC series, this was definitely a book that I could not let pass my by. If you’re a fan of MC books, you shouldn’t either!

| Excerpt |

I couldn’t figure out what’d happened.

One minute I’d been having one of the most exciting sexual experiences of my life. The next my ribs were being crushed as Rome slammed into me. Then I was on my feet, trying to catch my breath, as people shouted all around us. The music had stopped. Thankfully, Rome’s big body formed a barrier between me and the rest of the room, because everyone else in the place had lost their minds.

For an instant, I thought maybe I’d be safe behind him. Then some guy in a cowboy hat launched toward us, fists flying. I don’t know what I expected, maybe that Rome would start punching him—you know, like they always do in movies—but instead he ducked, then started dragging me toward the bar. More shouting. I saw a man lift a chair and slam it down against another guy’s back from behind. The poor bastard went down hard, so hard that his head literally bounced on the floor. He couldn’t even get his hands up in time to break the fall.

This definitely wasn’t a movie.

I needed to get the hell out of here. Now.

Rome didn’t need to drag me any more—adrenaline had set in and sexy times were forgotten. My instincts said to run, and I wasn’t going to argue. Running wasn’t really possible, though, what with people and bottles and tables flying all around us.

It felt like it took an hour just to get across the room, although it was probably just a few seconds. Nothing touched me. Every other step, he was pushing me to the side, standing over me, or slamming into someone to get them out of the way until we reached an opening at the far end of the bar. He shoved me down behind it, toward a group of women huddling under the safety of the ledge.

“Stay here and keep your head down!” he said, catching my eyes to make sure I heard him. “I’ll be back soon.”

With that, he left to wade back into the crowd.
