From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Joanna Wylde comes a new story in her Reapers MC series…
Rome McGuire knew he was in trouble the first time he saw her.
She was sweet and pretty and just about perfect in every way. She was also too young and innocent for the Reapers Motorcycle Club. He did the right thing, and walked away.
The second time, he couldn’t resist tasting her.
Gorgeous and smart, fun and full of wonder, she jumped on his bike and would’ve followed him anywhere. Still, she deserved a shot at happiness somewhere bigger and better than a town like Hallies Falls. Walking away wasn’t so easy that time, but her family needed her and he had a job to do.
When she came around a third time, he’d had enough. Randi Whittaker had been given two chances to escape, and now it was time for Rome to take his.
This time, the only way Randi would be leaving Hallies Falls was on the back of Rome’s bike.
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
It has been a while since I read the last Reaper's book. It took me by surprise that Gage is the current president. I had forgotten it. For me, it was still Picnic. Anyway, I was happy to be back in this MC world. I have missed it.
Rome McGuire is an EMT but he's also part of the Reapers. He likes to ride and enjoys spending time with his brothers. They have been there for him and he will be there for them too, no matter what. As for his female company, he could have plenty but now that Randi is back in town, she's the only female he's interested in. He let her go once. Almost a decade later, he's ready to make her stay this time.
Randi Whittaker is back in Hallies Falls for her high school reunion. She's also spending time with her two siblings and her mother. Her mother is unable to work any longer. She's disabled and Randi is worrying about the future of Lexi and Kayden. Randi's considering taking a job locally and helping her family out. She's also very attracted to Rome and walking away from him again could be the hardest thing she has to do.
I like both Rome and Randi. I could feel their desire for each other. They had a connection which began years ago (Reaper's Fire) until Randi's family moved away. This is their second chance to get it right. Of course, there are other things to consider, like her family, finding a job, dealing with Rome being part of an MC. There were all valid reasons for Randi to worry. Rome was very understanding and he stole my heart right away.
The one thing different in this novella is that there isn't much drama or conflict. I was expecting more trouble.
For any fans of the Reapers series, you can't pass up Rome's Chance. It's short, fast-paced and engaging.
