Must Read Monday: Reapers Motorcycle Club series

A friend turned me on to the Reapers Motorcycle Club series by Joanna Wylde and I loved it!! I was so engrossed in the stories that, not only did I pull all night read-a-thons, I actually dreamed about the characters. Definitely cannot remember being able to say that about any other books I've read. The dreams even included my hubby being a Reaper and me as his old lady which surprising seemed like a perfect fit for us. I will add that if you have a problem with rough sex or women being called "property" then these books will not be for you. 


Book 1: Reaper's Property tells the story of Horse and Marie. Marie's brother steals money from the MC and after Horse takes one look at Marie decides to kidnap her as motivation for her brother to repay the money. Even though I loved the series by the end I will say that this one was not my favorite book or couple and honestly I almost did not go on except for the reassurance from my enabling friend Janice that they got better to just keep reading.

Book 2: Reaper's Legacy tells Ruger and Sophie's story. Ruger first sees Sophie when she is dating his brother in high school. Sophie ends up pregnant and has to call Ruger to help her get to the hospital. Over the years he continues to watch out for her and his nephew but being a single parent comes with it's own special problems. When Ruger gets a call from his terrified nephew he rides all night to him and demands that Sophie and Noah move into his house.

Book 3: Reaper's Stand is about Hunter and Em. Em is the Reaper MC president's daughter . Em meets Liam online and ends up being tricked into meeting him where she is kidnapped by Liam/Hunter who is a member of the Devil's Jacks MC which is a rival of the Reapers. Through all of their online contact Hunter falls for Em and decides that he wants her for his old lady. This was my favorite couple of all! I cannot explain it but there was just something about these two that made you want everything to work out for them.

Book 4: Devil's Game tells Picnic and London's story. Picnic is the Reapers' president and London is the owner of a cleaning company the club hires to clean their businesses. Picnic is immediately drawn to London even though she is so far outside of understanding the club's lifestyle. London's niece who she has raised as her own winds up kidnapped by a drug cartel and London and the Reapers must try to save her. This one was an all-nighter and kept me up til 4 am because I could not put it down. Those damn Reapers get under your skin.

There are no cliffhangers and you do not have to read them in order. The characters do carryover through each of the books and each book just gets better and better. This series involves lots of alpha males, some criminal activity, new friendships, brotherhood, some rough sex & hard loving, kidnapping and even a drug cartel. I'm so glad I did not stop with the first one!

Holy...Hot Flash... Batman!!!

It appears that I am definitely in menopause at least according to my recent blood test. I've been going through perimenopause for the last several years. You know hot flashes, night sweats and crazy cycles, etc. In the past twelve months I've only had 2 periods and the hot flashes have been worse than ever!

Life On An Even Keel...

On An Even Keel is an idiom that means - calm and not likely to change suddenly, balanced. This is how I want my life to be. It use to be this way 15 years ago and I'm not sure exactly what happened to change that position. Everything about my life feels completely out of balance & so crazy and I cannot take it any more! Some way, some how we have got to turn things back around and get on an even keel again!!! 

My plan for 2011 is to find that balanced and calm life again. I am working on cleaning out and getting rid of stuff. Only keeping what means something to us. I want to get started working on decorating our house and turning it into a HOME and not just a house. And I want to get our finances in a better place. As always I am open to any suggestions anyone may have to assist in this change.

6 Tips when Starting to House Hunt

Last year we spent 4 months in house hunting hell!! It was an absolutely miserable experience. This was the fourth house that we have purchased in the 23 years we have been together. So it was definitely not our first rodeo but it was the most miserable one in all our house buying experience.

We ran our real estate agent ragged and we were all frustrated beyond belief. After physically viewing more than 40, yes I said more than 4-0, we finally made an offer on a house only to have it fall through at the last minute. It took another 15 or 20 house viewings before we finally found the one we purchased. I figured that it was a good time to share some things about house hunting that we have learned over the years so that maybe it will help someone who is new to the game. Of course I can say that this time was definitely a learning experience. I have to add that I am not a real estate expert and every experience has been different in one way or another.
