Ruthless

A Lawless Novel, #1

Filled with desire, angst, betrayal and intrigue Lexi Blake’s Lawless starts off her latest series setting the bar high for the books that come afterwards. For those that have been fans of the Masters and Mercenaries series, the journey continues in this spin off series and there are a few familiar faces that pop in to visit throughout the book. You don’t necessarily need to have read the first series to enjoy this one but I admit it makes for a richer experience.

Riley and his siblings are convinced that the CEO of StratCast orchestrated their parents’ murder and destroyed their lives. They’ve fought hard to save each other and live for vengeance. In the first step of an intricate plan Riley hires Ellie Stratton to handle a business matter for him. He ruthlessly entangles her in his life becoming her love and friend. As the weeks pass though and secrets are revealed Riley is going to have to make a choice between keeping the course of vengeance or figuring out a path forward that would allow him to keep the woman he doesn’t believe he can live without. Ellie has become more than just a step in the plan, but can he convince her of that?
