Devil’s Game (Reapers MC #3) by Joanna Wylde: Review

Liam “Hunter” Blake hates the Reapers MC. Born and raised a Devil’s Jack, he knows his duty. He’ll defend his club from their oldest enemies—the Reapers—using whatever weapons he can find. But why use force when the Reapers’ president has a daughter who’s alone and vulnerable? Hunter has wanted her from the minute he saw her, and now he has an excuse to take her.

Em has lived her entire life in the shadow of the Reapers. Her overprotective father, Picnic, is the club’s president. The last time she had a boyfriend, Picnic shot him. Now the men in her life are far more interested in keeping her daddy happy than showing her a good time. Then she meets a handsome stranger—a man who isn't afraid to treat her like a real woman. One who isn't afraid of her father. His name is Liam, and he’s The One.

Or so she thinks.

Leary says…

I am a total sucker for MC books, I love the men, the badass women and the loyalty they all have for each other. I have read the first two books in this series and although each can be read as a standalone I definitely recommend that you read them in-order but especially that you read the 2nd book (Reaper’s Legacy) before you read Devil’s Game. The two books intertwine, events that took place in the background of Reaper’s Legacy are brought to the forefront in Devil’s Game.

If you’ve read Reaper’s Legacy then you know the events that occur and you’ve been wondering all this time what was really happening between Liam and Em. Throughout Devil’s Game, we learn everything that was happening between them and events that occurred that brought them together. We got dual POVs and learned each others struggles through their feelings of falling for someone in a rival MC.

Although I totally enjoyed getting all the answers to the questions I had throughout Reaper’s Legacy, I found a large majority of the book to be redundant. There were parts I felt could have been skipped over a bit as we experienced all of this in Reaper’s Legacy. I suppose I can see the other side of the redundancy in that the author meant for all the books to have the ability to be read as a standalone and if these parts were skimmed through then the readers of only Devil’s Game would be a bit confused, upset, and feel there were holes in the story. As someone that has read the entire series, I would have enjoyed going quicker through the intertwined portion of the story and into more of their relationship. It’s a lose-lose here.

Each book in the series has kept me inthralled, the story lines are always captivating but I am always left feeling that the book felt a bit flat..but LOOK, the author keeps getting me to come back and read the next in the series. There’s obviously something about these stories that keeps me coming back. It’s the alpha assertive men and the strong willed women that the author creates that keeps me coming back.
