I very much enjoyed the first two books of the Reapers MC series, but they have nothing on Devil’s Game! By far the best book of this series so far. I love a series that gets better and better with each book. I love biker books that have a little grit, but a lot of sexy scenes and humor. Forbidden biker love. 2 rival clubs. The daughter of the president and a biker on the rise to the top of the ranks. Em and Liam don’t have an easy go of things...

Em is the daughter of Picnic. Picnic is the president of the Reapers MC. We’ve met him and loved him and his daughter in the first two books. Em is kick ass. She’s always lived a life in the club. She loves her father and loves the club, but things haven’t always been easy for her. Picnic is a bit... overprotective. You will notice that when you see her first day of high school replayed. We start with Em wanting to get rid of her virginity. She is a virgin for one main reason. Her father. No one wants to cross Picnic. It was hard to date anyone with a dad like that.
Dad was well and truly cock-blocking me, and it was bullshit. Wait, did it count as cock-block if you didn’t have a cock?

Then she meets Liam Blake. A guy who seems to be the entire package. He’s sweet, smart, funny and ridiculously good looking. After texting and talking to him for months, Em is ready to take the plunge. She’s ready to meet in person, possibly even give it up to Liam. Liam does like Em, but he’s got alliterative motives, secrets of his own.
“I like you, Liam Blake.”

“I like you, Emmy  Hayes,” I replied, wishing things were different. Don’t know why I bothered.

Liam (also known as Hunter- but I will consistently call him Liam to make it less confusing) is a Devil’s Jack. A member of The Reapers’s rival MC club. And if you’ve read Reaper’s Legacy, you know what happened between Em and Liam the night they meet.

Liam and Em have a complicated relationship. It’s full of distrust, attraction and betrayal. At least from Em’s perspective. Another thing I loved about this was the dual pov. I think it was crucial to have both Liam and Em’s pov in this story.

Em is one of the most delightful and likable heroines ever. She was never afraid to speak her mind, she’s feisty, strong, smart and she is a woman who knows what and who she wants. Em had me laughing so hard so many times. I adored her. Even when she was most upset with Liam, she still decided she wanted him. She was no push over and I adored that she showed him she was a force to be reckoned with.

Liam. I’m not sure that I’ve ever swooned this much over a biker. They usually piss me off in a big way for some reason or another (even though I love them) but Liam was amazing. He did something that not many bikers would dream of doing and it made me not only love him more, but respect him big time. Seeing his background, where he came from and how he grew up, made me understand him that much more. I loved his loyalty, his protectiveness, and the way he learned to love.

Another character I have to mention is Picnic. Picnic has lost a lot, but he still has his girls who he loves fiercely and would do anything for. I love the advice he give’s Em and I’m excited to get his full story this fall!
“You deserve a man who’ll fight for you, baby girl. You remember that, all right?”

It seems that Liam and Em have all the odds stacked against them- right? Rival clubs, a relationship founded on lies, things aren’t easy for these two. Just because it isn’t easy, doesn’t mean it isn’t worth it.

It took lots of growth on Liam and Em’s part to admit their real feelings for one another and give things a go after all they’d been through. Will the love they feel be enough for them to make it? Or were they doomed from the start? Liam and Em both have to sacrifice a lot to be with each other. It’s not an easy ride. 

Liam and Em’s story was full of love, passion, suspense, and laughs. The writing is amazing, the characters are all fantastic and lovable, and the plot was fast paced and interesting. There are some for sure hot scenes, but Em and Liam’s story is what I loved the most. The story captivated me from the start and there was never a dull moment. This was a real winner for me. I’m so excited with what this author has in store for us next... A Picnic book! I can’t wait!

If you are looking for a biker book full of action, humor and romance with a swoony hero and a kick ass heroine, you’ve found your next read! Highly recommended by yours truly! ♥

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.
