About SHADE’S LADY:
New York Times bestselling author Joanna Wylde returns to the world of the Reapers Motorcycle Club…

Looking back, none of this would’ve happened if I hadn’t dropped my phone in the toilet. I mean, I could’ve walked away from him if I’d had it with me.

Or maybe not.

Maybe it was all over the first time he saw me, and he would’ve found another way. Probably—if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that Shade always gets what he wants, and apparently he wanted me.

Right from the first.

*Disclaimer: I received an eARC of this book from InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review. This does not influence my rating or the content of my review in any way.

Guys, Joanna Wylde does it again. She just blew my mind with this novella, showing that she writes kick-ass stories no matter their length.

I loved Mandy. She was a woman that knew what she wanted, knew how to have fun, but she also had a softer side that she kept hidden. I liked that about her. I always wondered how the girlfriend of an MC's national president should be like, and I'm glad Mandy was that girl. I loved her relationship with her sister and with her nieces. I also liked how she was willing to do anything for them.

Shade was fantastic. He wasn't as cold or as cruel as I initially thought someone with his title in the MC world should be. I admit that not knowing a lot about this world, I had some preconceived ideas, so discovering Shade isn't like what I thought was a nice surprise. I also liked his honor. I like that he didn't abuse the power he had over Mandy in certain situations that could become really critical and dangerous for her. Even better, he tried to protect her. There's a scene that I adored where he gives her a better tool to let out her anger towards someone and he doesn't consider her weaker or like she shouldn't be doing what she was doing in that moment. I'm sure that there's a reason why he's national president at such a young age, and I imagine that I wouldn't want to be on his bad side, and we king of see a tiny glimpse of that dangerous side of him, but I really liked him.

As I said before, this book was fantastic, and I didn't even realize it was a novella until I got to the end too fast. I usually have a hard time with novellas, because I can tell they're shorter, but it takes a really good author to not make me feel that way, and Wylde is one of those authors. The plot was great, and the ending was not what I expected. I loved it, don't get me wrong, but it was unexpected in a way. I absolutely adored this story and I hope we see more of Shade and Mandy in future books.

   “You’re full of sh*t!” I said, waving my hand grandly. My drink sloshed and I licked the side of the cup, because this whiskey was way too good to waste even a single drop. “Wonder Woman is better than Batman. She’s got real power, not just fancy toys. Although she has those, too, which means anything Batman can do, she can do better.”
  “Nope,” Shade said, shaking his head seriously. “She’s hot, I’ll give her that, but he’d take her in a fair fight.”
I held up a hand for him to wait as I polished off my booze.
  “No way. She’s a goddess of war and she’s one of the best hand-to-hand fighters in history. She’s got an invisible jet, for God’s sake. How can you compete with that? All he has is a bunch of money and the stupid Batmobile.”
  “Hand over the cup,” Shade said, narrowing his eyes.
  “Why?” I asked, narrowing mine right back. I was good and drunk now, and I wasn’t sure I was ready to be done for the night.
  “Demonstration,” he replied. “C’mon. Or are you chicken?”
  “What are we, kindergartners?”
  “You’re the one insisting Wonder Woman can take Batman,” he replied. “Chicken.”
Then he leaned toward me, raising a single finger to poke me in the center of my chest. Not copping a feel or anything remotely sexual, either. This was pure taunt. I handed him the cup and he tossed it on the floor, nearly falling off the bed in the process. I smirked—guess I wasn’t the only drunk one. Then he started listing to the side and I lunged for him, grabbing his shirt to keep him from going over.
Shade caught my arm, using the momentum to pull me onto his body with sudden force. My hands hit his chest and I raised my head to stare at him, stunned.
  “What the hell are you doing?” I asked. Shade wrapped his arms around my waist, holding me tight to his body.
  “Demonstrating.”
