(Reapers MC #1)
by Elizabeth Knox
When you’re married, there are the things you can live with… and the things you can’t.
My abusive husband, Harry? He made those distinctions very clear to me.
Constant beatings, a forced a miscarriage, and then roping me in with my father’s notorious biker gang, The Reapers.
Lucky enough, I got out of my marriage in one piece. For the time being, that is. Though it’s only a matter of time before he picks up on my trail.
Thank God for Blackjack.
He swears he’ll kill my no-good husband the second he steps foot in town. That’s sweet and all, sure, but there’s more to him; something about his stare that I can’t get out of my mind. A part of me is desperate to believe I deserve to be loved, deserve someone like Blackjack in my life. Yet, the bruises from my past tell me to never trust another man again.
But Blackjack isn’t like any other man, is he?
I never expected that I’d have anything or anyone to lose when I enlisted in the army. Then the blonde wild-child of the Montana’s Reapers motorcycle club, Ashley Monroe, showed up and proved that I had a lot more to lose than I thought.
It shouldn’t have been a surprise that by the time I came back home after all these years that she’d up-and-left town and gotten married. Life, after all, continues to move right on along even when you’re not there to watch it go. All the same, I have a two-year-old son to think about now.
And then there’s Ashley. She shows up, beaten and broken from her marriage, and instantly changes everything. I’ve never wanted to kill a man so badly my entire life. Just one look at her and I’m drowning with a desire to take her in my arms and tell her she’ll always be safe with me.
But is there enough strength left in both of us for this second shot at life?
Blackjack is the first book in the Reapers MC Series by Elizabeth Knox. It was my first read from this author and I was very much looking forward to this book. The blurb had me very intrigues and I had high hopes. It didn’t hurt that the cover was hot as sin as well. But from the moment I started reading this book I felt I was missing something, I was very confused throughout parts and wanting more details but not getting it. I left feeling disconnected from the story.
There was very little connection between Ashley and Blackjack, I didn’t feel them together at all. The characters were so underdeveloped and had very little spark going on. In the end I felt like it took me a year to read this book!
I might give this series another go in the future because there was some interesting secondary character’s that I would be interested in hearing their story!
