Marie doesn’t need a complication like Horse. The massive, tattooed, badass biker who shows up at her brother’s house one afternoon doesn’t agree. He wants Marie on his bike and in his bed. Now.
But Marie just left her abusive jerk of an ex-husband and she’s not looking for a new man. Especially one like Horse—she doesn’t know his real name or where he lives, she’s ninety percent certain he’s a criminal and that the “business” he talks with her brother isn’t website design. She needs him out of her life, which would be a snap if he’d just stop giving her mind-blowing orgasms.
Horse is part of the Reapers Motorcycle Club, and when he wants something, he takes it. What he wants is Marie, but she’s not interested in becoming “property of”.
Then her brother steals from the club. Marie can save him by giving Horse what he wants—at home, in public, on his bike… If she’s a very, very good girl, she’ll get lots more of those orgasms only he can offer, and he’ll let her brother live.
Reaper’s Property. Where to begin? The hero, and I use that term loosely, is named Horse. How can you go wrong with a name like that? It’s common for people in motorcycle gangs to have nicknames and so now I know you’re wondering…why “Horse”? Oh, it’s for the reason you’re probably thinking. It’s because he’s hung like one. Yes. I said it. He has a giant peen and he certainly knows how to use it. Horse was a character that I found myself hating and equally lusting over. He’s mean, crude and demanding. He’s just a hard man who has had a hard life and who lives by the code of the brotherhood. No one is above the code.
Marie has had enough male problems lately with her abusive ex, she isn’t wanting to start another relationship. Her mind may tell her that but her body seems to light up like a bottle rocket whenever Horse is nearby. Not gonna lie, Marie is slightly trashy. She meets Horse for the first time pulling weeds from around her brothers overgrown trailer in a bikini top and shorts. Her mom is in prison. She’s mouthy and kinda dumb at times and she really has no idea what she’s getting into when she starts something with Horse. Underneath it all though she’s a good person who is protective of her brother even if he doesn’t deserve it.
When Marie’s drug addicted brother steals from the club Marie strikes a deal with them in order to save his life. She’ll stay with Horse and do whatever he tells her to in exchange for them sparing him. What starts out as a plan born out of necessity quickly turns into some deeply rooted feelings. She takes over Horses life and his house with equal skill. Completely consuming him and making him long for something he never thought he’d find. An old lady.
Mean heros seem to be all the rage these days and Horse definitely fits the criteria. I made a fatal mistake though. I read this not long after reading Motorcycle Man by Kristen Ashley. The two books paralleled each other in a lot of ways and that book was so incredibly well done it made it hard for me to transition to this one. I did enjoy this one though. A lot. Horse takes alpha to another level but in a lot of ways Marie holds all the power over him. He craves her just as much as she craves him. The sex is hot and plentiful though not terribly inventive. The story line is engaging enough to keep readers interested and wanting to know how Marie’s brother could possibly screw up any more.
I will be sure to check out more from Ms. Wylde!
