Gunner by Gianni Holmes (Smoky Vale Alliance #2)

Gunner is the second book in the Smoky Vale Alliance series and it is just as amazing as the first. While you could arguably read this as a standalone, you would benefit from having read the previous book as well as the Grimm Tales of Smoky Vale series as the characters and the storylines follow on.

From the blurb:

I’ve lived a ruthless life full of resentment.
There’s nothing and no one I loathe more than Chief Ben Witter.

I'm the president of the Blood Hounds MC, and Witter has always been a thorn in my side.
He can’t be bought. And he’s on a mission to dismantle my club.
But my obsession with hurting him has nothing to do with club business.
It’s personal.
I want to annihilate him for making the man I‘ve always loved, fall for him instead. A dead man whose ghost lingers between us.

When Witter needs help to close a dangerous case involving my club, I volunteer. Being around him is the best way to ruin him. Except our mutual hatred makes for explosive heat. The more we fight, the more we wind up beneath the sheets. Chief Witter is an addictive man. How am I supposed to still carry a grudge when I've fallen for him like our ex did?

Gunner is best read after Biker Daddy and Bay. Content warnings include: graphic violence, baby farm, and the unaliving of pregnant women.

Reds Book Reads review:

Gunner is such a great character and he is unashamedly himself throughout the book and I love him. He always seemed a harsh character before now but he really comes into his own in this book and you can’t help but like him. You also get to understand Ben a lot better and the history who made him how he is.

This book does provide some great answers to questions that were raised in Bay’s book as well which I am totally here for. I absolutely cannot wait for the next books in this series. Another phenomenal book from Gianni Holmes that sucks you in from the start!
