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 show her how damn good it feels...to be ruthless.

My Thoughts

Ruthless is the second book in the playboys in love series by Gina Maxwell. The playboys in love series is an adult contemporary romance and each of the books can be read as standalones. I have not read any books by Gina but I had no problem following along in this one. I will say this, this book is very adult. Even more so than I was expecting. So know that when you go into it. I have read books on many of the various Entangled lines, but I have never read any from their “scorched” line. Now, I can say this book is as advertised…scorching hot. I ended up liking the story, but I didn’t fall head over heels in love with it. It was a good read though.

The plotline of Ruthless was pretty unbelievable for me, but you just have to go with it and not think about it too much. The main character, Roman, is a very successful attorney and also a male stripper. Those two things do not compute in my head but maybe that is just me. But Roman does have some golden rules he lives by and one of them is to not mess around with friends of his friends. He has no problem sticking to this rule until….you guessed it, he meets the female main character of Ruthless. Addison and Roman are explosive together. That is for sure. Some things happened that I wasn’t really expecting and I didn’t really love, but they can be right up another person’s alley. But throughout the writing was consistently good.

Bottom line: If you are a fan of super hot romances, Ruthless and the playboys in love series will be a great one for you to check out. The writing is excellent and the romance is scorching. Overall the book was good, but didn’t blow me away. It was a decent read.
