They call me the reaper.
Saying I have no soul.
A heart that’s charred black.
I tell them it’s true,
because it is.
I’ve been hiding in the shadows.
Stealing secrets, destroying the lives of those who deserve it.
But there’s one story to be told before this book closes.
Don’t be fooled, it’s not a fairytale.
I’m no prince.
And I certainly don’t want a princess.
With me, she’d never get a happily ever after.
I’d break her heart in two then serve it on a platter with a smile on my face.
I told her to stay away.
Forced her on her knees.
Made her beg.
Made her cry.
Yet, she still wants my help.
Everything I do comes with a price.
They call me the reaper.
And she’ll give me a soul.
Even if it’s hers I take.

Reaper is the epic conclusion to Rachel Leigh's Redwood Rebels series and I am not ready to say goodbye to my rebels. All of these characters have their own special little places in my heart and I never want their stories to end...especially since it means not seeing all my twisted men anymore. At least I have my NOT so secret love affairs with Axel Thorn (Like Hate) Talon Porter (Striker) and Zed King (Reaper). That's right, read it and weep b*tches...being the selfish QUEEN B*TCH that I am, I made sure to stake my claim on these three long before any of you got your chance to. Got to LOVE having those BETA perks! Truth be told, I had my claim on Talon and Zed long before their stories even came out. Don't believe me? Head on over to Rachel Leigh's reader group and you will see THEY ALL BELONG TO ME!
From the moment Zed's character made his first appearance, I just knew without a doubt that this dark, twisted, and broken hero was going to be all mine. His story has been one of my most anticipated reads of 2021 and let me just say that my girl Rachel Leigh delivered EVERYTHING a girl could have asked for. The author's storytelling is breathtaking beautiful and her character development is utterly brilliant. Her words consume every inch of my soul and as I inhaled the words of Zed and Vi's journey, I felt as if I was transported right into the action. She writes in such as way that allows the readers to feel every emotion that her characters are feeling. She just knows how to captivate you whole body, heart and soul.
Zed King is the ultimate REAPER with no soul and a heart as black as the clothes he wears. He is a broken hero that you just can't help but fall in love with his all his dark and twisted flaws. He may be damaged, but that doesn't mean he is a lost cause like his friends and family think. His need for REVENGE has left him angry all the time, and the only way to undo the damage to his heart and soul is to get even with those who have wronged him...even if it means turning into the villain that Vienna "Vi" Moran has always thought he was.
Vienna "Vi" Moran is a strong and badass heroine that you can't help but develop a lady crush on. She is just as broken as Zed, but at the same time, she knows just how strong she needs to be in order to save Zed from himself. Vi is truly the calm to Zed's storm...and I could not have imagined a more perfect match for him. She does NOT take his sh*t and even though she has loved him in secret for as long as she can remember, Vi isn't about to let him walk all over her.
Zed and Vi's story was beyond epic and I was totally ready for the darkest and most twisted ride of my life with these two. Rachel Leigh gave her readers the conclusion of a lifetime and as sad as we are to see the Redwood Rebels go...they will always hold a special place in our hearts!
