Shade’s Lady by Joanna Wylde…ARC Review



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.


My Review:

Shade’s Lady is the newest from author Joanna Wylde and is part of her Reapers MC series as well as novella number four of the 2017 1,001 Dark Nights lineup.  Now, I’m going to admit that while Ms. Wylde has been on my TBR list for ages, I’ve never read any of her work until now.  Man, have I been missing out! This story had so many of my favorite things from a fun and witty heroine to a total alpha male hero to plenty of drama and action.  I loved it!

The thing with some MC books that I don’t like is the hero crossing the line from being alpha and taking care of what’s his (whether it be their girlfriend, property, or friends) and being protective, crossing the line and just plain being a jerk.  I’m here to tell you that this was no the case with swoon-worthy Shade. Shade is the national president of the Reaper MC crew so you may think he’d be over the top with his ego.  No way, Jose.  This man is everything I love from a rough and tumble alpha male.  He looks after everyone he holds close.  He’s got a hard exterior with a soft heart I loved seeing. He isn’t much for words, but the words he does say mean so much.  Truly, a gem in the MC world!  Now, when it comes to Mandy, I’ve gotta say I loved her just as much.  She has every reaction to every situation that we all would have.  You know how sometimes you’re reading a book and when a crazy moment happens, the heroine reacts anything but normal and you want to reach through the pages and shake her?  Yeah, you won’t have any of that with Mandy.  I loved her very real outlook at all she’s going through and I loved her personality.  She had me laughing and saying “yeah, girl!” so many times while reading.  I just adored her! Together these two are a couple I won’t soon forget and I hope to see more of in the future…because I am now HOOKED on Joanna Wylde!

I also have to give a shout out to her sister and the officer helping them all out in the craziness their lives turn into.  I loved those two and hope we get to see more of them.

Whether you’re already a fan of Ms. Wylde’s or a new fan, like myself, I have no doubt you will love this story as much as I did!

Five Loves
