Ruthless Reapers MC, 4

Paige Wilcox just wants to keep her head above the water. She barely freed herself from the clutches of a monster, so staying safe is Paige’s number one priority. She never expected to run into her first love. Gunner’s rougher, darker, and a patched member of the Ruthless Reapers MC. Trusting one man almost ruined her but Paige soon discovers that under Gunner’s savage persona, lurks a protective and sweet side.

When his lost love shows up back in town, Gunner is ecstatic. When Paige left all those years ago, she also left Gunner with a broken heart. Paige is no longer the sweet and innocent girl he knew. She now hides scars both inside and out. Gunner’s determined to convince her that she’s meant to be his old lady. When the monster from her past resurfaces, Gunner needs to pull out all the stops or risk losing Paige.



“Come over after work. I’ll make us dinner. I’ll text you the address to my apartment,” she said unthinkingly.

Gunner gave her a slow, lazy smile. “That’s not necessary. I know where you live.”

“You do?” she asked, her heart racing a little faster.

“I trailed you at a distance the past three nights. The neighborhood you live in isn’t safe.”

Gunner had always been possessive. Should she get mad at him for only caring about her well-being? She didn’t refute his statement.

Paige knew what kind of neighborhood she lived in, but she couldn’t afford an apartment in the safer parts of town. Still, Gunner always seemed to know every little thing about her. Should that concern her?

“Paige, I need to confirm that you’re asking me out on a dinner date,” Gunner told her. That made her relax.

“I’m ready to take this to the next level,” she answered. “Part of me is saying it’s too soon, but I don’t want to regret missing out on what could be. You understand?”

“I understand very well.” He leaned over the counter, then tipped her chin using two fingers. “Do you have any idea how long I’ve waited for this moment?”

“This moment?” she asked, feeling stupid.

His face was so close. She was a little annoyed the counter stood between them, but that was all right. Gunner leaned in close and brushed his lips over her.

The kiss started slow. He explored her mouth at first, taking his time. God. She’d forgotten how good he was at this. She clutched the lapels of his cut and kissed him back fiercely. She wanted, no, needed Gunner to know she was no longer the apprehensive and unsure girl he’d known.

Paige had been a virgin when she met him. Gunner had taught her everything she needed to know about love and sex. She was no longer a passive participant waiting on him to do the next move. When he thrust his tongue down her throat, she sucked hard on it.

Gunner groaned when he parted from the kiss. “You’re worth the wait,” he said, peeling himself away from the counter. “I’ll see you tonight.”

A second chance if they fight for it
Written by LFBooks on 20th Dec 2022

Gunner's Obsession is the fourth book in the Ruthless Reapers MC series. This was a solidly good read that is filled with suspense, danger, action, romance, a possessive and protective alpha who is zeroed in on the one woman he knows is meant for him, and a lot more. Paige and Gunner have a history together but went their separate ways. Now that she has left her husband behind and wants to start over Gunner finds his way to her and a possible future together. But when the past collides with the present Gunner is going to have to fight to keep his future.

A marvelous read...

Loved It!
Written by kdavis on 30th Nov 2022

This was so very good. I love Gunner and Paige. Gunner never forgot Paige and was thrilled when he saw her enter the bookstore. Paige had just moved back to her hometown from a horrible marriage to an abusive, twisted husband. After all this time Paige and Gunner find their second chance together and are very happy. Then trouble comes calling. There was action, violence, suspense, romance, passion and love. They were perfect together. I wish there had been an epilogue about Paige and the baby.

Written by Nate on 30th Nov 2022

I enjoyed Gunner & Paige’s book. When his lost love shows up back in town, Gunner is ecstatic. When Paige left all those years ago, she also left Gunner with a broken heart. Paige is no longer the sweet and innocent girl he knew. She now hides scars both inside and out.

Written by xo2read on 30th Nov 2022

This is the 4th book in this author’s Ruthless Reaper’s series. This story revolves around Paige and Gunner. Paige is Gunner’s first love that he hasn’t seen for ages. She escapes an abusive marriage with a little blackmail and decides to go home. Her parents are horrible people who stopped talking to her because she left a marriage that gave them connections. Even though Paige broke his heart, Gunner still loves her. Paige’s past comes back to haunt her and thankfully Gunner is there to watch out for her. While this isn’t my favorite writing style it was a decent book, however I wish we had seen the end and could know if they had success or not.

MC Steaminess

I'm a sucker for MC romances, I mean the bikers are typically rough and tough guys that can't be tamed until they meet their leading lady. In this case, this is their second chance at a love lost. So worth the read my friends!!

Written by Kurtins-R on 19th Nov 2022

This was a fun second chance romance for two great characters. Gunner never forgot his first love and Paige, well, she felt she had to make choices per her parents' directions and married someone else. It had a bit of suspense but you could feel how much the two characters cared for one another. I did think it could have been a bit longer but overall a good story.

Gunner and Paige

I love this MC. It is full of honorable men. Gunner is one of them. Paige is back in town, the one that got away, the only woman he ever loved. He makes it his mission to keep her this time and plays for keeps. Poor Paige has been through the ringer. She divorced her abusive husband very recently. I loved both characters. Paige didn't whine and wasn't annoying. She was tough and open to falling in love with Gunner despite what she had been through. I loved the whole book.

LOVE THIS MC Romance!! The story is AWESOME!
Written by Andrea Reed on 17th Nov 2022

I loved this book--this book was so well written and who doesn't love a super possessive Alpha male! Love how protective hero is over this damaged heroine. If you have the chance to read the first books in this series to get a feel for the characters that are mentioned do that. But this really was a great read for sure.

Heart melting
Written by BecM on 17th Nov 2022

This 4th book has us seeing Gunner not waste any time getting Paige where he wants her. Love that he didn't hold any anger or bitterness. He is what you see. Paige was refreshing as she didn't lie or hide anything & was honest from the get go. Romance, a bit of action to right the wrong & HEA made the story charming

Very sweet and slightly scary HEA

Gunner and Paige had been in love but life intervened and she married someone else. Paige's husband was abusive so she planned her escape and moved to a small town where she grew up. Here she meets Gunner again and this is their story. This book is an erotic dark MC romance.

I loved it!

This was my first read from this author and I loved it! I really enjoyed how decisive/protective the hero was and loved that this was their second chance together. No ridiculous or unnecessary drama and I’ll be looking for more from this series. Definitely recommend.

MC romance
Written by IdaMae C on 7th Nov 2022

This is a MC romance, but I wouldn't classify it as "dark". The MMC was very protective and the "slow burn" aspect of it happens off page. It felt like instalove, which is something I adore. There might should be a trigger warning for domestic violence.

Written by Cynthia G on 7th Nov 2022

Thank you NetGalley for the eARC. I think I have only read a few in the past by this author but I will be looking for the name now. I am a sucker for a reborn romance. I have a few exes I wouldnt mind running into again especially if its going to end up like this! My only complaint was that it was short....or maybe I should have paced myself ha ha.

Gunner and Paige
Written by Harper Y on 2nd Nov 2022

This book was a nice read. No drama, no miscommunication, no letting other people mess with them, it was just about two people finding each other again and going all in. Gunner and Paige were high school sweethearts, but then she moved away and broke both their hearts. She is now back after leaving her horrible marriage, and when she sees Gunner again, it was like she never left. Gunner never stopped loving Paige, even though he is in a MC now and can have any woman he wants, he wants Paige. Paige and Gunner were so sweet together. You can tell just how much they love each other. When danger arrives, Gunner will do whatever it takes to protect Paige. Love how they picked up right where they left off.

Gunner never forgot his first love Paige, even after she broke her heart when they were teenagers and married someone else. Five years later, Gunner is now a patched in member of his MC and Paige is divorced from her cheating wife beating husband and has come back to her hometown. Gunner and Paige are still in love and fall into a relationship but Paige's ex feels humiliated by her leaving him and wants revenge. I really enjoyed this second chance romance. It had a bit of suspense but you could feel how much the two characters cared for one another. I did think it could have been a bit longer and it would have been nice to have an epilogue with a bit more time in the future to see if everything worked out but overall a great quick little romance.

Gunner And Paige
Written by Gkp2460 on 30th Oct 2022

Gunner's Obsession is an excellent second chance romance. Gunner and Paige have a lifetime of history. With so much in their past you'd think they wouldn't find their way back to each other but that's exactly what happens. These characters are blazing hot and you can't help but love them. The way that they deal with past hurts is second to none. You'll find everything you need on these pages to enjoy their story.

Love Gunner!

Gunner is one of the best! Paige is the one that got away. She was young and thought she was better off leaving. Gunner was heartbroken, he still had bed warmers, but he didn't have any relationships after Paige. Gunner and his MC brothers band together and help Paige get away from her abusive ex. I really loved Gunner.

5 stars
Written by MMS on 30th Oct 2022

Freaking fantastic!! I absolutely loved this story. Paige was the one that got away from Gunner when they were younger and he knows she's his one. After a horrible divorce from her abusive ex, she returns home. They run into each other again and all those feelings came back. As their romance progresses, Paige has to worry about her ex husband coming to get her. This book had action, suspense, steam and was just so good.

Great love story!
Written by Diana Acero on 30th Oct 2022

Small town second chance
Written by rainereads on 30th Oct 2022

Paige escapes an abusive marriage with a little blackmail of her own and heads to her hometown. Her parents cut off communication with her after her divorce because to them it mattered that she left a marriage that gave them connections. Gunner has loved Paige since high school, even after she broke his heart. Paige’s past comes back to haunt her and gunner is the one that’s set his mind to protect her. While this isn’t my favorite writing style it was a decent book, however I wish we had seen the end and could know if they had success or not.

Gunner, tatooed biker and Paige, divorcee ... Protector, second chance romance
Written by Kindle Distracted on 15th Oct 2022

Paige is starting over in her hometown after divorcing her abusive husband of 5 years. Gunner was the one she left behind when she went to university. None of the women he has had since could replace her. He wastes no time re-establishing their connection only Paige is not as divorced as she hoped. This is a predictable story with abundant stereotypes. It does not detract from the story though as you know what you are getting from the get go and just ride the Harley to its inevitable conclusion. Easy, quick read.
