The 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...

my thoughts

I knew this new series by Lexi Blake was going to ROCK my WORLD, I just didn’t realize HOW MUCH! This book was just EVERYTHING! It pulled emotion after emotion out of me…there was NO WAY I was putting this one down for one second. Lexi Blake continues to give us characters (new and old) that are so easy to fall in love with, characters that you just want to stand up and root for, and characters that you connect with on such a deep emotional level. These characters become a family to you, and you can’t help but want to dive into the book and live a happily ever after with them. Are you ready to meet Riley Lawless?

“Look at me. I’m here because I fucking can’t stand the though to not having you. You tempt me like no other woman ever has. I don’t understand you and I might never, but I’m going to know you, Ellie Stratton. I’m going to know what makes you smile and what makes you scream out my name.”

I hear the sighs all around the world! YES! He is THAT good! He has a way with words that will make you melt. And our heroine, Ellie Stratton, was a formidable female for our boy, Riley. Together, these two were EXPLOSIVE…INTENSE…and oh so PASSIONATE! I absolutely LOVED these two together.

The family dynamic of the Lawless clan is complex and such a treat to read about. There is so much more to this family than I would have ever thought. The absolute cool thing about RUTHLESS, is that Mia and Case (from Lexi’s Masters & Mercenaries series) played a big part in this book. Whenever I saw Case’s names my eyes lit up with so much joy. I’m loving how even though this is a brand new series, Ms. Blake gives her loyal fans a little bit of a crossover into the series that started it all (for me at least). If you are a fan of Lexi’s work, then this is a no-brainer for you. You will fall in love all over again. If you are new to Ms. Blake’s work, buckle up and enjoy the sensual ride. I can’t say enough great things about this author. I mean I could, but this review would last FOREVER!

Journey into a world where a man has to choose between love or revenge. Take a chance on this new breakout series by the ever so talented, and a favorite author of mine, Lexi Blake.
