I had to wait until my brain stopped screaming "This is the best!" before I could even attempt to write this review. Not only was I super excited to get more of the Lawless family, but I was extremely happy with the story Lexi Blake delivered to us. I loved Riley and Ellie!

Ruthless is the start to the Lawless series which follows Riley, Drew, Brandon and Mia Lawless as they attempt to get revenge on those responsible for their parents' death. When they were kids they never believed the cops had the full story, which was that their father murdered their mother and attempted to kill all of them too. Now that they're older and they have the money to fund their vengeance they're ready to take down those responsible. 

Ellie Stratton is prepared to inherit StratCast and take over running the company after her father's death. She hires Riley as her lawyer to get everything prepared, not knowing the danger she's bringing into her company. Her father was one of the people responsible for the death of his parents, and Ellie unknowingly plays right into the Lawless siblings' trap. But while Riley is working with Ellie, and working against her, he gets to know the woman she is and he's not sure if he can betray her like planned.

Riley, oh Riley. He's my new fantasy man. So ladies, back up because I am prepared to fight for him! He was everything I could possibly want in a book boyfriend. He had the intensity, the sensitivity, the sexiness, and the passion for doing what was right. Just perfect is how I would describe his character. We slowly got to learn about his life growing up after his parents' death and some of it broke my heart, but it also made me admire him for becoming so successful after all of that. 

With this book, you didn't just get a romance between two characters, you got this whole world of corporate espionage that kept you in suspense the entire time also. There was a lot happening throughout it, but the book never got to be too much, instead everything that was happening just added to the story to make it better. And woven in between the big Lawless plan was the parts with Ellie and Riley that made my heart skip a beat. The late night dinners at the office they shared, the flirting, it was all just wonderful.

Bottom line, Ruthless is a must read. I promise you that you want to meet these characters and you will love at least most of them. Brandon is the more laid back brother and, so far, my second favorite. His story is next so I'm very much excited for that. Drew is the hard character to like, but once I was able to learn a little more about him I changed my opinion about him. I can't wait for his book, because I know there are definitely going to be some surprises he has in store for us. Really, I'm just too excited to even handle this series.
