Just when I didn’t think I could love Lexi Blake any more, she introduces the Lawless clan. There’s Drew, Riley, Bran, and Mia. Mia we got to meet in Case Taggart’s book in what is one of my all-time favorite series, Masters and Mercenaries. Mia is a reporter who managed to help Case find his presumed dead brother and bring him back home. Now, we get an all new series about the Lawless brothers, and of course, the Taggart/MacKay bunch make their appearances.
Book one, Ruthless, is about Riley Lang, the middle brother. The brothers were separated 20 years ago when their parents were murdered by 3 people, along with their sister. Now, they are all grown up, and with brilliant brother Drew’s billions behind them, they are off to seek revenge on the perpetrators.
This time, the snake they are after is Stephen Castalano, and the daughter to Philip Stratton. Unfortunately, Ellie Stratton is about to become a pawn in their game of revenge since her father is no longer around for them to do it to. But as Riley gets to know Ellie, he knows he’s losing his heart to her and that the revenge game isn’t quite as important as Ellie is. But Castalano makes a stunning move aided by the Lawless’s game of revenge and the cards come crashing down. You’ll have to buy this book and see it for yourself!
At times I truly wanted to kill the Lawless brothers for what they were doing to Ellie, I got downright angry. It just goes to show you what a masterful storyteller Lexi is that she can evoke such emotion from her readers. This series is off to a truly amazing start, and I for one am excited to be along for the journey!
These brothers are dark. They all have some real issues. Considering how middle brother, Riley, learned to work his issues, and his appear to be the most benign, it will most interesting to see what happens with the other two.
I found the first half of the book to be a tad slow as the plot was developed, as can be the case in the first book of a series, but it was enough to keep my interest. Then things picked up and got exciting. There was a nice sigh worthy resolution to Riley an Ellie's story followed by a nice epilogue setup for the next book. Although one will probably want to read this series in order, I was pleased to only see dangling threads but no cliffhanger. Just enough to bring me back but not leave me frustrated. I do appreciate that.
Although I did pay paperback price for an ebook, something I rarely do, it was worth the read. I totally look forward to the next book.
