About ROME’S CHANCE:
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Joanna Wylde comes a new story in her Reapers MC series…
Rome McGuire knew he was in trouble the first time he saw her.
She was sweet and pretty and just about perfect in every way. She was also too young and innocent for the Reapers Motorcycle Club. He did the right thing, and walked away.
The second time, he couldn’t resist tasting her.
Gorgeous and smart, fun and full of wonder, she jumped on his bike and would’ve followed him anywhere. Still, she deserved a shot at happiness somewhere bigger and better than a town like Hallies Falls. Walking away wasn’t so easy that time, but her family needed her and he had a job to do.
When she came around a third time, he’d had enough. Randi Whittaker had been given two chances to escape, and now it was time for Rome to take his.
This time, the only way Randi would be leaving Hallies Falls was on the back of Rome’s bike.

Randi Whittaker has gotten a surprise. Only time will tell if that’s a good or bad thing. One interesting character is her sister Lexi. She has both a smart mouth and a smart mind. Her mother is someone that you have to feel sorry for. But then you remember that she’s an adult and has made her choice no mater how bad that choice is. She will leave you shaking your head.
Rome McGuire’s life is a little questionable but that’s not going to stop him from getting what he wants. He’s a sap! Loved his interactions with Lexi. She’ll have him trained in no time. At the very least it will give you a good chuckle. My disappointment, if you can call it that, was that I felt the story was almost one sided. I got more of Randi’s point of view than Rome’s. In a way that wasn’t a bad thing because we get Randi’s perspective on the man. But with the man’s name on the cover I was hoping for a little more coming from him. After coming to know the main characters, the ending was perfect.
Other than that small disappointment I enjoyed this novella. I’ve read one other book from this series and I look forward to reading more. The author mentions a book titled Reaper’s Fire. I listened to a sample of the audiobook and immediately placed it in my wish list. Looking forward to getting into my library.
Rome seemed to have things under control in here, and it wasn’t like there was anything I could do to help anyway. Go outside and pull yourself together. It didn’t take long to cross the room. There was still a crowd hanging around the patio door, but I managed to slip through the bodies and work my way outside into the cool night air.
Oh, that was better.
A lot better.
The space was a bare-bones concrete slab, surrounded by the fence I’d seen when we’d first arrived. There were about twenty metal tables, and strings of white lights gave everything a cheerful glow. The patio was mostly empty, although I saw a young couple off to one side. Everyone else must’ve either gone inside to watch the spectacle or they’d left.
I walked over to one of the corners, forcing myself to lean back against the wooden boards and calm down. I couldn’t quite believe how fast everything had gone weird and wrong. Rome had been right about one thing—the Starkwood Saloon was fun. They had good music and I’d enjoyed the dancing.
Wasn’t such a fan of the fighting, though.
That’d been scary. Really scary. The more I thought about it, the more it bothered me. Not so much that there’d been a fight, but that Rome had taken me to a place so rough that the waitresses needed baseball bats to keep the peace.
Oh, and the shotgun.
That whole shooting thing wasn’t so spiffy, either.
The fight hadn’t had anything to do with Rome, of course. And Tinker insisted that it’d come as a surprise… Specifically, she’d been surprised that it’d gotten so big. Not that there’d been a fight in the first place. I couldn’t decide if that made it better or worse. Better that there weren’t always big fights, for sure. But even small fights shouldn’t really be the norm, right?
Then there was the fact that the Reapers never left each other behind when a fight started. Did that mean they had some kind of fight-related policy, or was it just so common that Tinker knew the drill? Either way, violence didn’t seem to bother them.
Rome certainly seemed comfortable with it.
