RUTHLESS (A Lawless Novel) by Lexi Blake

Publication Date: August 9, 2016


imageThe first in a sexy contemporary romance series featuring the Lawless siblings—from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake.

The Lawless siblings are bound by vengeance. Riley, Drew, Brandon, and Mia believe the CEO of StratCast orchestrated their parents’ murder twenty years ago to steal their father’s software program. And there’s only one way Riley can find some solid evidence…

Heir to the StratCast legacy, Ellie Stratton hires a new attorney to handle a delicate business matter—and she’s shocked by her attraction to him. Over the course of a few weeks, Riley becomes her lover, her friend, her everything. But when her life is threatened, Ellie discovers that Riley is more obsessed with settling an old score than in the love she thought they were building. And Riley must choose between a revenge he’s prepared for all his life and the woman he’s sure he can’t live without…

Cori 4.5 Stars

I picked up Ruthless based on the author and cover alone. The cover is so pretty that I want to pet it and I love Lexi Blake’s books. Ruthless was incredible! This new series is a spinoff of Lexi Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries series. The Lawless series will have a book for each of the brothers in the Lawless family, but their sister Mia has a book in the Masters and Mercenaries series, Dominance Never Dies. You don’t have to read it before picking up Ruthless, but if you want to follow the complete storyline I’d read it first. I’m so excited about this series after reading Ruthless. The Lawless Series is all about the Lawless siblings seeking vengeance for their murdered parents and Ruthless is Riley and Ellie’s story. Their story was full of deception, secrets, intrigue, passion and suspense. I loved it! I love a good mystery and Lexi Blake delivered that with some hot romance! I highly recommend this new series and can’t wait for the next installment. I’ll be devouring it as soon as I can get my greedy little hands on it.
