Since the death of his wife, Reese “Picnic” Hayes lives for his club and his daughters. He knows that loving again isn’t in the cards for him but he’s ok with that. The endless stream of women in and out of his bed suits him fine. However, things change when he meets London Armstrong and suddenly finds himself wanting her.
London’s life is anything but simple. She’s been raising the daughter of her junkie cousin and truly loves and cares about the girl. London tries her best to keep her out of trouble but nothing seems to work. London knows that getting involved with Picnic is not the smartest move she has ever made but she can’t seem to stop herself. Just as London lets herself start something with Picnic, her cousin appears, dragging her daughter into her junkie lifestyle. Now, London is forced to make a choice between Picnic and the girl she’s raised like a daughter. And whatever choice she makes, someone will die.
I’ve been hooked on every book in the Reapers Motorcycle Club series and jonesing for Picnic’s story. So when I saw that Joanna Wylde’s next book was Reapers’s Stand and it was Picnic’s story, I counted down the days until I finally got my hands on it. While I enjoyed the story, I was somewhat disappointed. London’s choices made her hard to like and hard to see her with Picnic. I know I’ll be waiting for the next book in this series without a doubt. However, as much as I enjoyed Reaper’s Stand, I wanted more from Picnic’s story.
