My dead best friend's daughter and the woman that haunts my dreams are one and the same.

For the last two years, I've told myself she’s off limits.
That a man like me, can't be with a woman her age.
Then my little maniac turned eighteen.
And I gave in to my temptation.
I shouldn't have, but now it's too late.

She's mine now, and I'll never let her go.

RCK *don’t be all, like, uncool*
I love age gaps but this one didn’t do it for me.

Heroine is too bratty. I hated how she kept throwing herself at Hero. Hero couldn’t/wouldn’t do anything until she was 18.

Ofcourse every MC member and their dog was protective of her. Why else would they go shopping for 5 hours for a prom dress for her, get all dressed up on her prom night, plan her 18th birthday party. I could go on but I started skimming *eye roll* such tough and rough members.

I can’t forget to mention first time they have sex

Holy balls! Like HOLY JESUS what did I just read! <<< (for those who don’t know me, that’s all very good lol)

So listen, Reaper is batshit crazy. I mean that in the best possible way. And he is not alone. This story was so ridiculously intense at times that I kinda wished I was watching the movie version so I could close my eyes at some stuff. BAT SHIT CRAZY! But here’s the thing, that’s what’s gonna hook you to an MC read. It’s rare that I read polite MC romances. Actually, I can only think of o

Reaper is the president of his MC and Sarah the daughter of his best friend. For years she’s been off limits because of her age but the closer she got to 18 the harder it was for Reaper to resist her. I enjoyed the banter between our main characters as the tension between them built up. While there was definitely quite a bit of push and pull I could’ve done without, I see where it builds up the angst. The plot was good. Definitely kept my interest piqued. The pacing and writing were strong. Seco ...more

I love age gap romances but only if AND ONLY IF the younger one is a little more mature for their age. The heroine was very immature and bratty... it was kind of hard to get her appeal. Sadly, she didn't have much of a personality outside of her obsession with the Hero. The one star is for the writing.

Ok so this was really good. First of all, I knew it would be an age gap romance so I thought it would go a certain type of way, and I was wrong. Reaper waited for Sarah until she was 18, and they are so connected to one another. Plus she's got a friendship with everyone at the MC. I don't read a lot of MC anymore, and I was in for a few surprises with this book! It gets gritty, and intense, and these guys do some bad stuff sometimes. AND people get seriously freaking hurt!

Yikes. Hot mess express coming through.
This was poorly written. Very amateur.
Unbelievable characters.
I couldn’t continue onto the third chapter.
I wholeheartedly agree with all the top 1 star reviews.
This book needs a re-write now that the author has many books under her wings and start this book over.
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Reaper by K.L. Savage is book One in the Ruthless Kings MC Series. This is the story of Reaper and Sarah. Sarah was Reaper's best friends daughter although she didn't come to the Ruthless Kings MC until she was around 16 or so. But her brother Boomer was pretty much raised their where Reaper feels of him like a son. But Reaper is the President of the MC but he knew that Sarah was going to be his. But Reaper wouldn't act of those feelings nor would he let Sarah think that he wanted her in that wa ...more

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Fuck! This was awesome! I loved the story, I loved the guys, I loved Reaper (though sometimes I wanted to punch him), I loved Sarah, and I didn't want it to ever end.
Sarah was a crazy, kickass chick. She's got some balls and then some. I guess she had to, to love and be with someone as Reaper. The guy was hot but REALLY crazy.
Boomer was kinda sweet, with his sister. But he was also a bit annoying. He didn't

I loved this book. One reason why I enjoy the MC romances is because of the sense of brotherhood and the criminal behavior that seems to provide the backbone for these novels. This book is short (only about 250 pages), and even though the focus is on the romance, we still get plenty of gore and violence. I do think that the novel could have easily been a little longer to allow for more twists in that overall plotline, but it was fast-paced, action-packed, and blood soaked. What more can a girl a ...more

So I wanted to like this book but something kept me from warming up to it. After reading some of the reviews raving about it, I started to wonder if I had read the same book. Maybe it was the pushy 16 year old girl chasing her fathers best friend and throwing herself at him? Maybe it was the way he was attracted to her and was crude to her but was gonna wait until she was 18 to start something with her. Now normally, I dont mind age gap either direction. But for some reason I did n ...more

This book was two thumbs down. I feel like 80% of the book was just going on about how much Reaper and Sarah wanted to bone each other but couldn’t. The other 20% was a storyline. A lot of things were not believable. Sarah was childish and immature. It never really did go in to her past but would reference about it. It irritated me to no end!

"Reaper" had me torn in two. On one hand, I loved the story. It was suspenseful, steamy and quite violent BUT, I'm not a fan of age-gap stories, especially when the age difference is like the one Sarah and Reaper had. That being said, I just read this book in just few hours and I'm going to read Boomer's story soon!

P.S. An extra ⭐ because I LOVE the cover!

I don't normally like MC romances, but I freaking LOVED this! When I first read the blurb and saw that it was an age gap with the forbidden twist of the father's best friend, I instantly wanted it. What I didn't expect was to fall in love with every single character. Reaper, Sarah, Boomer, Tool, Tongue.. all of these characters I want more of!

I loved the push and pull between Reaper and Sarah, the obvious connection and love they had for each other, but seeing them wait until Sarah turned 18 (s

Great book... this is the first full book of this series... The Ruthless Kings. Think I'm ready going to like it.

This book begins where the Prequel ended. These are some really bad boys... I mean They do lots of good things for their community but don't mess with them or the ones they love.... They won't think twice about killing you or at least shutting you up permanently.

Reaper is a story about Sarah. She’s had feelings for her dad’s best friend for few years. She sometimes thinks about moving on but she knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to go after it. Unfortunately Reaper or Jesse like she calls him isn’t giving her even a bread crumb of hope because of their age differences

“It makes me want to kill that fucker all over again. I know anything you did, you had to do to stay alive.”

Sarah loves to drive Reaper crazy even though it breaks her heart every time

Not for the faint of heart. The pulse pounding action is nothing compared to the tension between Reaper and Sarah.

I have been waiting for the conclusion of this book. You can't deny what the heart wants even if it's your dead best friends daughter who is too pure and innocent but she will shock you. Sarah is the crazy half of this duo. So good and worth the wait. I received an ARC for an honest and voluntary review.

I love MC romances, especially if they are written right! I’m a little skeptical about age gap romances, but the author managed to write this one very good; it’s actually one of my favorite age gaps.

Reaper is the President of the Ruthless Kings MC. He’s a hard, ruthless man, born into the MC life. Nothing fazes him, except Sarah. If you read the prequel, then you know that she’s his dead best friend’s daughter. She came to the club when she was 16, bruised and beaten by her foster fathe
I liked the idea of it, but not the delivery.
I didn't like how she threw her self on him every damn time, i get it she is underage and a teenager...being like a puppy with her first crush but i just wished she was more shy about it you know?
Even if i get past her bratty-stubborn-petty self i didn't like how they get together when she was finally legal, in a blink of an eye she started being a slut-virgin which personally i disliked so much,let's not talk about how she bring her nose in club bus
Reaper was Hawk’s best friend and when Hawk died he ended up raising his son , Boomer. Later he found that Hawk had a daughter he didn’t know about in foster care and the foster father had beat her badly . At just 17 years old Sarah knew Reaper was the love of her life but no matter how hard she threw herself at him Reaper rejected her . Finally 2 months before her 18th birthday she gets him to admit his feelings and when she turns 18 she is going to be his . About an hour after her birthday he ...more

Reaper & Sarah

Age is supposed to be just a number. When it is your dead friend's daughter it is so much more. Reaper is the Prez, he's supposed to be the leader. He's fought his feelings for her for almost two years. In just a few months she'll be 18--will he be done waiting? Will he be able to resist?

His feelings are messing with head and now is not the time for him to be anything but all in it. There are supposed to be trusted allies that seem anything but and attacks on his club. He needs to

DNF - Gave up at page two: "I've thought about following him where he goes, whose pussy he's dipping into. I envision shoving him off her, fisting the grenade in her whorish c**t, pulling the clip, and watching the bitch explode." That's our heroine and once I read that line, I had no interest in continuing. I don't like that level of sadism in any lead role, let alone the heroine of a romance, even a dark one. Not a series I'll be reading. ...more

There is some definite back story that I feel I’m missing and would love to know about. We find ourselves at the beginning of the book seeing Sarah and Reaper going head to head. Sarah isn’t quite 18 and under Reaper’s care. He is doing all he can to count down the days until she hits 18 because then he can be honest with her about his feelings. Until then he’s an idiot and makes bad decisions where she is involved.

Ok..... where do I even begin. This book has me torn. On one hand I enjoyed the story a lot, and on the other hand it fell short. Now I did not mind the age gap one bit. I enjoyed the alpha attitude of Reaper, and adored Sarah's sassy attitude. I love the brotherhood feel and how Sarah has a special relationship with the different brothers. When Reaper and Sarah did take the leap their chemistry was smoking hot. I can't help it there is just something about a growly alpha male.
