From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Joanna Wylde comes a new story in her Reapers MC series…
Peaches Taylor spent the last seven years slinging drinks and dodging drunks at the Starkwood Saloon. Some might call it a dead end job, but to her it was an investment—another six months, and she’d have enough money to buy the place.
Life would’ve been perfect if Eli hadn’t come home.
Eli King is ready to settle down. He stood by his brothers when they needed him, paying the price for their freedom with his own. Now it’s time to claim his reward—the Starkwood Saloon. He’s got the cash to buy the bar, the skills to run it, and just one person standing between him and his dream: Peaches Taylor.
She’s been driving him crazy since they were kids, and not in the good way. When she was six, she shoved a spider down his pants. When he was ten, he locked her in a closet overnight. Then she hot-wired his car at seventeen, and things got ugly…
They’re adults now, and the Starkwood isn’t a toy to fight over—it’s the hill they’ll die on. No prisoners. No compromises. No mercy.
Peaches Taylor and Eli King are going to war.
**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.**
There is nothing like a visit with The Reapers to shake up your reading world. Eli’s Triumph is like Shade’s Lady, it’s such a Reapers story. (I said that to Ms. Wylde once and she replied- yes you get it!). Fun, entertaining and the sexual tension is off the charts.
If there were to ever be a true female Reaper member, Peaches would be that woman. Talk about a woman able to stand her ground, not take crap from anyone and what a mouth on that woman. Peaches is a force. There is no other description I can give her. Peaches is dedicated, hard working and can hold a grudge like no other. I will put my money on her every time.
Eli’s is more than what meets the eye. MC life is all he’s know and he embraced it head on. Learning family is more than blood at a very age. Eli’s dedication to the club is unwavering however he’s looking for a little more stability. Coming off a five year jail stint, Eli’s future just shattered the dream of the one woman that gets to him like no other. Eli’s a Reaper and Reaper’s get what Reaper wants.
There are so many thing that I love about Eli’s Triumph. Eli and Peaches have known each other practically their entire lives. Picking on each other from childhood. Dancing around the sexual tension as soon as they realized what it was. The banter and the revenge tactics amongst the two of them is absolutely outstanding. The sexual tension surrounded between Peaches and Eli is so intense it’s ready to ignite. For two people that try to get under each other skin the way they do they’ve always been there for each other. Even when they’d rather be slapping the other one upside the head because they can’t seem to admit, together, they are so intense they both are ready to ignite. I thoroughly enjoyed watching Peaches and Eli torment each other in the best ways. In true Reaper style, Eli and Peaches figure out their way.
Excellent, one sit read.
