Let me start by saying this is the second book I have read by Lexi Blake and she didn’t let this reader down. Ruthless was one of those books I just couldn’t put down, it was just page turner. It was filled with secrets, betrayal , revenge, twist and turns I never saw coming making me say OMG no way, especially the last few chapters. This book had me giggling at times & I shed a few tears. At first I wanted to strangle Riley for how he was leading Ellie on with his secrets and betrayal, but eventually I rooting for him for Ellie to give him a second chance, he was willing to give up his family & their revenge against the three people who murdered his parents, for her. I can not wait for the next book in the Lawless series, to find out what they have plan for Patricia Cain’s demise, knowing them Lawless brothers it will be dandy. I hope Brandon & Drew can find love as Riley did, these men have been through so much in their life, it has destroyed them all they can think about is revenge, well Riley not anymore since he learned how it felt to truly love a woman and that woman to love him back, especially Drew I think when he falls it will be hard with his heart of ice, except for his siblings & Hatch. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a romance with a little suspense, be ready for some twist & turns. Lexi Blake will keep you on the edge of your seat close to the end.
