My Rating: 5 STARS!
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.
I may have been a Gina L Maxwell virgin going into Ruthless, but she has made me a freaking lifer. This book was EVERYTHING. Kinky. Delicious. Sexy. Intriguing. Stunning. See? Told you. It's everything I was looking for. The fresh voice, and uniquely smart-assed and quippy characters make for one hell of a read.
Addison and Roman are one ballsy couple. She's tough with a melt-y center reserved for Roman only, and he's implacable and guarded with a teeny tiny sweet spot that Addison makes burn brighter. They're not relationship people. But together they're just sublimely sensual and fun. A cat and mouse duo with nothing but pleasure in mind for their endgame. He resists. She tempts. They combust. A quite typical formula, but with the special spark Ms. Maxwell delivers, Ruthless became a world of characters I wanted to revel in.
This book is a must-read. With a hint of menage, downright lovable and endearing characters, a sturdy and well-versed story and tons of heat-pounding sex, Ruthless has edged it's way into my to-be-read-again pile and I'll be needing more of these sexy Playboys in Love men!

Gina L. Maxwell is a full-time writer, wife, and mother living in the upper Midwest, despite her scathing hatred of snow and cold weather. An avid romance novel addict, she began writing as an alternate way of enjoying the romance stories she loves to read. Her debut novel, Seducing Cinderella, hit both the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists in less than four weeks, and she’s been living her newfound dream ever since.
When she’s not reading or writing steamy romance novels, she spends her time losing at Scrabble (and every other game) to her high school sweetheart, doing her best to hang out with their teenagers before they fly the coop, and dreaming about her move to sunny Florida once they do.
