Eli’s Triumph by Joanna Wylde Review


* * * * * * * * * *



From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Joanna Wylde comes a new story in her Reapers MC series…

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.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

I’m a huge fan of Joanna Wylde’s and have been since I read Reaper’s Property years ago. The Reapers MC series is one of my favorite series, and any opportunity I get to head back into that world is one I’m going to take. It doesn’t matter if it’s the Reapers in Hallies Falls, Couer d’Alene or Portland, I slip right into that world as soon as I crack open one of her books. Wylde rewards me by combining her fantastic storytelling, consuming plots and sexy romances into gripping, riveting, unputdownable stories.

Eli’s Triumph is a 1001 Dark Nights novella, is a standalone story within Wylde’s Reapers World, and it can absolutely be read and fully enjoyed without having read any of the previous stories in the Reapers series. Eli King and Peaches Taylor may have a long and difficult history, but underneath all that animosity, lust and attraction—and love—simmers. Wylde uses humor and banter to ramp up the sexual tension between Eli and Peaches. The push and pull manifests itself in pranks, heated arguments and sizzling chemistry until it all boils over in a long-overdue showdown. I loved the way that Peaches had no problem standing up to Eli, and although she was the hothead in this relationship, she held her ground, even when she was the one losing everything. Eli has always loved Peaches, and he’s not happy with how things shook out for her. He proposes an alternative, and if she can see past the betrayal, they both might just get more than either of them had ever dreamed they would.

Surprisingly sweet, seriously sexy and down-to-earth, Eli’s Triumph was a great addition to Joanna Wylde’s Reapers MC series. I loved this quick trip to into the Reapers world, and I already can’t wait for the next chance to head back. Four smooches from me for Eli’s Triumph by Joanna Wylde.
