✪ Devil's Game (Reaper's MC #3) ✪
Author: Joanna Wylde
Release Date: June 3, 2014
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.

A modern day Romeo and Juliet...
Devil's Game by Joanna Wylde was one of my most anticipated new releases of the year. I already loved the first book in this series, the second one was even better but I think it's safe to say this book is my favorite of them all thus far. The problem I had with the previous two books is that I didn't always like the heroine all that much, but Em? Well, she rocks it in the heroine department. She's fierce, sassy, sarcastic and strong and she completely holds her own against the wickedly handsome and dominating bad boy Liam a.k.a. Hunter.
We already met Em and Liam in the previous book Reaper's Legacy. Em is the 22 year old daughter of the Reapers Motorcycle Club president Picnic. Growing up in a club full of big scary bikers and a overprotective dad hasn't been easy for her. She loves the club and the values they represent but sometimes she just wants to be able to be free from all the rules and constant hovering of her father. He's made it almost impossible for her to date, what with scaring off potential candidates with threats and acts of violence. As frustrating as his tactics may be, he does have good motives...
"You deserve a man who'll fight for you, baby girl. You remember that, all right?"
So, when she meets the sweet, handsome, smart and funny Liam online and he shows an interest in meeting her for real, she decides to take a chance. Little does she know, Liam is part of the Devil's Jacks, the Reaper's biggest rival MC. And well, if you've read the Reaper's Legacy, you already know how their first meeting went and how Liam has his own ulterior motives for getting in touch with Em.
Em and Liam together? Well, they're, in one word, explosive. Both inside the bedroom and out if it. They're both stubborn, hot headed and because of trust issues they both have a hard time expressing their true feelings. They fight, they make up, then they fight some more and then make up once again. But through it all they also build up an intense friendship and they nearly laugh together as much as they fight.
“I like you, Liam Blake.”
“I like you, Emmy Hayes,” I replied, wishing things were different. Don’t know why I bothered.
Liam is kind of a jerk. Okay, he's kind of a huge jerk to Em. But he has his reasons for trying to keep her at distance. He wants her. He cares about her, and under different circumstances they might've been able to start something, but they both know their different backgrounds make it nearly impossible for them to be together. Still, he does whatever's needed to keep Em safe from the ever-growing tension and threats going on between his club and the Reapers and he silently hopes that maybe, someday he might be able to regain het trust and make her his. He's the kind of guy who throws out punches, but who's willing to take a beating too, if it means keeping his loved ones safe.
Overall, Devil's Game was another winner by Joanna Wylde, at least for me. Throughout the book I laughed, I swooned, and I nearly came off my seat with all the suspense and action that was going on. It was a thrilling, sexy, fast-paced, raw and gritty ride and I loved every second of it. The ending already hints at what's to come in the next book, which will be Picnic's story, and I can't wait to find out more about him and the mysterious London.
Highly recommend read.

What will happen with the motorcycle clubs?
Are they going to unite for the common good, or they're going to war?

I loved him!!!He is so hot!!He is absolutely an ALPHA male!!I couldn't resist him!
Em and Hunter were perfect together!!The chemistry between them was off the charts!Hunter became the man that Em needed!!Together they managed to get through a lot in order to come out in the end..
