What an AWESOME novella!!!!
Looking back, none of this would’ve happened if I hadn’t dropped my phone in the toilet. I mean, I could’ve walked away from him if I’d had it with me.
Or maybe not.
Maybe it was all over the first time he saw me, and he would’ve found another way. Probably—if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that Shade always gets what he wants, and apparently he wanted me.
Right from the first.

Another awesome novella in the 1001 Dark Nights series.
I love this series.
I love her Reapers MC, and have been looking forward to every single book so far. Lucky me Shade’s Lady didn’t disappoint in the slightest.
Shade had his eyes set on Mandy from the very first moment. Even so she was in a “relationship” with Rebel, a weekend biker, he couldn’t’ get her out of his mind. Shade wasn’t interested in an old lady or even a steady relationship but Mandy made him itch in the best of ways.
Mandy had been aware of the Reapers and their president since the very first time they stepped foot into the bar she worked at. As a waitress and pseudo girlfriend to a biker she liked the lifestyle, the people and riding on the back of a bike but the Reapers were still making her nervous, especially their president.
One night, her scumbag of a boyfriend Rebel, made a deal with Shade and Mandy was the collateral damage. Fortunately Mandy had a backbone made of steel. She knew that her choices of boyfriends sucked, but that didn’t mean that she was clueless about what was going on and that she would do everything in her power to keep her family safe.
She worked hard, helped her sister take care of her nieces and when time permitted she had some sexy fun. But NEVER did she expect anything for free.
Mandy was strong, independent, hard-working and knew her limits. She gave Shade a run for his money. No other women had ever talked to him and pushed back the way Mandy did.
Of course this didn’t detain Shade at all in his pursuit. It just made her a more worthy conquest.
I adored their One-Night-Stand rule.
As long as Shade didn’t invite Mandy for breakfast in the morning as a kind of goodbye they would be keeping their one-night-stand going – since neither was willing to admit that their could be more to it than just sex.
Shade’s Lady by Joanna Wylde was a perfect addition to the 1001 Dark Nights series. It was fast paced, and perfectly plotted for a novella. In addition the characters were complex and interesting.
I devoured this book after a long day at work – I couldn’t have enjoyed it more!!
