“What I can tell you is that even though this was a sweet and sexy read, more so than the crude and raw some want, it was a great story!  One that I enjoyed from beginning to end and definitely left me hungering for more Reapers to come.” ~ Under the Covers

You know what I find in a way fascinating about this series?  There is no mold to the stories Joanna Wylde tells!  The only thing you know for certain is that you are picking up a book by a completely individual person that just happens to be part of the same MC.  You may not think each story is your favorite because some types appeal more to you than others, but I find them to be very real.  In the end, not everyone’s journey will be the same.  Not everyone’s book will have the same intensity.  Some are younger and some are older.

That being said, I love a more mature hero.  As much as I enjoyed the more new adult story from the previous book, this brought the series back to what I liked.  A man that has seen and done more than others.  Who is ruthless when needed.  And a man who is brought down to his knees by the sheer love of the one special woman that crosses his path.

Picnic has had a string of “young chicks” in his bed.  A fact that his daughter was not all too happy about.  But you gotta think that before that, he was a committed man.  At heart, he’s a family man and London was just the woman to make him see he could love again.  And I love that once he falls, he’s in for the long haul.  He’s straight forward.  He doesn’t want to play games.  He wants to be with her and protect her.  Have her by his side.  And you can’t help but melt a little at his soft and protective side.

I also loved the fact that London is an older heroine.  I would’ve probably had a fit if he did end up falling for a 25 year old or something.  I can get behind London and believe she has what it takes to handle Picnic and his life.

I’m not sure if this is the type of book people are expecting to read.  Like I said before, this series has been a surprise after another.  What I can tell you is that even though this was a sweet and sexy read, more so than the crude and raw some want, it was a great story!  One that I enjoyed from beginning to end and definitely left me hungering for more Reapers to come.  And keep us guessing what’s next, I love it!

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

Valid points about the series and this story, Francesca. I enjoyed Pic’s story too. I loved his heroine. I only wish that there could have been a bit more of Picnic’s backstory. I look forward to what she has next.

Yes, it could’ve benefited from being developed a bit more. Agreed. 🙂 I loved this heroine as well. She may be my fave heroine in the series in general.
