Review: Lawless 1: Ruthless
Ruthless by Lexi Blake is the first book in her brand new series Lawless. It is an erotic and steamy tale filled with plot twists and turns and suspense that will leave you avidly turning each page just ready to devour more and more and more of Riley and Ellie's story as well as the entire Lawless clan.
Ellie is the target - she has done anything wrong but the sins of the father will be visited upon his daughter. The Lawless siblings are out for revenge and she is part of their end goal. They don't realize that she knows how terrible her father was and is nothing like him, not until it's too late anyway.
Riley has a mission - get close to and infiltrate the life of Ellie Stratton in order to allow their revenge plan to be successful. What Riley doesn't expect and pretty much gets blindsided by is his bone deep attraction to Ellie. That was never part of the plan and now the plan must change.
But with years of planning in the works will this cause everything to fail catastrophically?
Amazing book, well-written and well-paced with characters you just want more of, like all the time, more! I loved it and cannot wait for the next book (Brandon's story), Satisfaction expected in January 2017.
Great story about revenge, loyalty, family and love.
The title of the book sets up Riley to a certain type of man and to a certain extent he is. But when he meets his mark, Ellie, for the first time, she is not he expected. He is determined to do what it takes to bring down the man who had a hand in his parents murder, but the more he gets to know Ellie, the more he wants to protect her from the fallout. Ellie instantly falls for Riley, but when she learns that he was involved in events that hurt her company, she is heartbroken. I loved that Riley did everything in his power to help Ellie, even if it meant going against his family. Luckily for him, his family he did not have to choose. Great story about revenge, loyalty, family and love. Looking forward the rest of the series!
I received an ARC via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.
