Book Summary:

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.**

My Thoughts:

Every time I get a new Reapers MC book on my kindle, it's like a kid being told that they get to skip school, and go to Disneyland for the day!  I have mad love for the Reapers MC Series, and every single book in this series is excellent!  Right before I even began reading Eli's Triumph, I thought about how excited I was to read it, but at the same time how I really wanted to savor it, because I knew I'd be sad once it ended!

Eli King has just spent five years in prison for a murder he didn't commit.  Instead, he took the fall, out of the love and loyalty he has for the Reapers MC.  Now that he's out early, Eli's looking forward to owning and running, the Starkwood Saloon, which he was promised, by his Uncle Gus and fellow Reapers.  

However, when Eli was away, there were no guarantees that he would make it out of prison anytime soon.  So unbeknownst to him, Uncle Gus, made arrangements with Peaches Taylor to own and run the saloon.  Peaches never knew about the prior arrangement made between Gus and Eli.  When she finds out that Gus is no longer selling her the Saloon that she has been busting her butt to run the last several years, (and is selling it to Eli instead,) she is shocked, devastated, and livid!  She blames Eli for stealing her dream right out from under her.  Peaches and Eli have had a love/hate dynamic between them since they were small children.  Eli wants the saloon, and the girl! He knows that Peaches is the one for him, but can he convince her of that?

I loved Eli and Peaches' story!  No matter how hard Peaches tried to push him away, they would always find their way back to each other; as if by a strong magnetic pull!  These two came in to each others lives when Peaches was just five, and Eli, seven years old.  Ms. Wylde did a great job of giving us their dual perspectives, and glimpses in to their long history, by flashing between the past and present.  

As the reader, I loved being privy to everything that happened behind the scenes.  Through these flashbacks, we see that Peaches and Eli have always had a complex relationship.  Peaches was jealous of Eli as a child, but also drawn to him.  Eli was protective of Peaches, always watching out for her, and loved pushing her buttons, and igniting her fierce and fiery temper!  These two were loyal to one another, and their chemistry was off the charts!  

Eli and Peaches drove each other crazy, but also cared so deeply for one another.  This made for an entertaining, fast-paced romance, with so much build-up, that I was dying for these two to get together!  There were also sweet elements to the story, in the way that Eli and Peaches were loyal and protective towards one another, and always their for each other.  We get quick glimpses of a few characters from the Reapers MC series, but the focus is on Eli and Peaches.  You can definitely read this story as a standalone.  If you want an off the charts sexy, entertaining and riveting MC read, look no further!

Book Excerpt:

“Eli?” she asked, sounding confused. “Why are we talking about Eli?”

“He’s been watching me.” 

“Um, I think he’s just drinking a beer,” Megan said. “Maybe checking out your boobs a little, but that’s nothing new.”

Hmm… It couldn’t possibly be that simple, but it did give me an idea. Maybe it was time to create a diversion. I shifted my shoulders, expanding my chest. 

Disappointingly, his eyes stayed on mine.

 “Someday I’m gonna own this bar, and firing his ass is the first thing I’ll do.” 

Megan giggled. “That sounded sort of super-villain-ish. Do you have a lair? I wish I had a lair…” 

I blinked, caught off guard. I hadn’t realized that I’d said the words out loud. Eli smirked at me, gloating because he’d just won our little pissing contest. Dammit!

 “I can’t believe I wrote to him in prison,” I told her, turning my back on the bikers. “Never should’ve been nice to him. He probably thinks that, deep down inside, we’re friends or something. We’re never going to be friends.”

 “Didn’t he give you a ride home after work last night?” she asked, her voice light.

 “Gus made him,” I snapped. 

 “And did Gus make him hug you the other day?” 

 “He caught me and gave me a noogie. And it hurt, too. It’s not a hug if it leaves bruises.” 

 “He left bruises?” Megan asked, startled. Shit. I might be able to justify a rumor about him not being able to get it up, but telling her that he’d hurt me for real…yeah, that probably crossed a line. 

 “No,” I admitted. “That was an exaggeration. But he’s still pure evil, so don’t fall for his shit. Or sleep with him. Every time a waitress sleeps with him, she ends up quitting without notice. Then I have to cover their shifts.” 

 Megan nodded, looking a little uncomfortable. “Okay, then… Um, I think I’ll go check the bathrooms. Make sure there’s no ugly surprises before things start getting busy.” 

“Great idea,” I told her, and she scuttled off. Then I reached for a washcloth because I had lemon juice to clean up. Then I’d have to go back over there and check on them. See if they wanted more… Eli would, I could already tell. Not because he was big on drinking, though. 

 He just wouldn’t be able to resist an opportunity to order me around.
