People call me Ruthless for a reason.
Whether I’m in the court room or in the bedroom, my reputation is well-earned. I’m either working hard, working out, or working my way into some woman’s panties. But none of them share my particular kink, and I walk away feeling unsatisfied.
Until I met her.
She’s a friend of a friend, which makes her off-limits in my book. But then temptation had me by the balls and I had her up against a wall. She literally fucked my world off its axis, but it can’t happen again.
My plan was avoidance, but that got blown to shit when my firm hired her as a new junior attorney. Now I’m her boss, and I’m supposed to act like I don’t want to bend her over my desk every five minutes.
But I’ve never held myself back with anything before, so consequences be damned. It’s time to take what I want and show her how damn good it feels…to be ruthless.
How is it possible for a book to be completely smutty but also romantic at the same time? In a word: Ruthless.
There are so many layers to this story. Addison and Roman are coworkers–more accurately, employer/employee–so they have to manage the duality of their relationship in addition to the power imbalance. Additionally, their relationship later explores menage, which is when things get even dirtier–and much more emotionally entangled–than before. There’s also the matter of Roman being a stripper on the side.
Inevitably, though, fun turns into the feels, which leaves Addison and Roman with some tough choices. There’s some mild drama and conflict, but ultimately I found the ending of the book quite satisfying, thanks to some well-deserved groveling on Roman’s part.
For me, the perfect combination is a book that can balance the dirty with the romantic. Ruthless gets it right. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to the next installment in the Playboys in Love series.
