Audiobook Review: 1001 Dark Nights: Shade’s Lady (Reapers MC, #6.5). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Shade’s Lady by Joanna Wylde

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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. 

Shade’s Lady is a stand-alone story. There is no need to have listened to any prior Reapers MC stories to enjoy Shade’s Lady.

The heroine: Mandy – She is divorced and recently moved to help out her sister with her kids, Mandy is broke and working at a local motorcycle bar. She is dating a man named Rebel who is in the local motorcycle club, but thinking of getting rid of him after finding him kissing another girl when he thought she was in the stock room.

The Hero(es): Shade – Leader of the Reapers motorcycle club. He is the youngest national president in Reapers history. He is a murderer that got off on a technicality. He was always the biggest nastiest man in the room.

The Story: The Reapers are treated like royalty in Mandy’s small town. Shade has wanted Mandy since the first time he saw her. She is the waitress that is serving the Reapers one night when they came in. She was told by the bar owner, Bone, that she can make good tips being their server but if she heard them talking about any biker business that she was to immediately forget it.

The book is told in dual points of view and via dual narration, where the entire chapters told from Mandy’s point of view were narrated by the female narrator and the chapters told from Shade’s point of view were narrated by the male narrator. The narration was done by Tatiana Sokolov and Sean Crisden who both have pleasant voices which worked well for these characters.

Mandy is cute and quirky, she named her inner voice wonder woman. She likes her job and takes things in stride. Though she doesn’t want a real relationship after the debacle that was her marriage to Trevor which saw her ending up in Jail because of the creep. Her thing with Rebel was just for fun and she likes him being a biker, going on rides was fun, though Rebel had a bit of a man crush on Shade which was a bit embarrassing.

Things get a bit strange when her boss tells her to take off for the night even though they are still busy and Rebel tells her he is buying a bike from Shade and needs her to go with him to the Reapers Clubhouse 30 miles away to pick it up. She ends up riding there on the back of Shade’s bike. The story ends up being pretty good.
