Eli’s Triumph (Reapers MC #6.7) by Joanna Wylde
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.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Eli and Peaches had me rolling from the very start of their story! Their antics, pranks, and torture of each other put a smile on my face and made me LOL more than once. A story that starts with a childhood rivalry, ends with a love that really proves the saying “There’s a thin line between love and hate”!
Peaches grew up in the Reapers MC. Her mom’s boyfriend was a Reaper, so even as a child she was part of the MC world. When, at the tender age of 5, things changed, Peaches couldn’t see past the boy that was taking over her world. One prank led to another, until they were ripped apart by a crazy set of circumstances.
Eli was saved by the Reapers MC, and his uncle, who took him in after his mother’s death. He grew up way to fast, and even at a young age, knew how to give as good as he got. Eli would do anything for the Reapers MC, sacrifice anything asked of him, because of what they mean to him. He gave up a lot for the brotherhood, but when he comes back home, he knows what he wants and will let nothing stand in his way.
This book was so much fun! I loved Peaches and Eli’s crazy antics, and hilarious interactions. I can’t help but laugh at them. This story is a good introduction to the Reapers MC, but can totally be read as a stand alone. It will definitely leave you wanting more of the Reapers, and looking for the next read in the series!
