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.



My fingers are clutching his shirt at his lower back like he’s my lifeline. I know if I let go, I’ll fall. Further under his spell, further into the oblivion of pleasure he’s promising with his taboo whispers. So I’m holding on, keeping myself grounded in the moment with the feeling of starched cotton pressed into my palms.

But there’s a voice in my head urging me to let go, and a big part of me—more than I’m willing to admit in this moment—that desperately wants to. I want to fall with this man who’s dominated my fantasies for months. Why not let him dominate me for real, like I’ve imagined at night with my eyes closed and my hand between my legs? All I have to do is be brave enough to trust that he’ll be there to catch me…and let go.


“Addison Paige is a master at showing the world what she wants it to see. Much like myself, the woman has different sides—Addison, the ambitious professional, and Addie, the devil-may-care party girl. But there’s another side to her she keeps hidden behind the walls she’s built. The side that’s stripped of her masks.”


“I’d let Addison soften my heart. So much that it didn’t even put up a fight when she ripped it from my chest.”

My Review:

Ruthless (Playboys in Love, #2)Ruthless by Gina L. Maxwell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

One of the best I’ve read this month so far!

“Ruthless” (Playboys In Love #2) by author Gina L Maxwell.
Release Day: January 30, 2017
My Rating: 5
Cover: 5

I could kick myself for never reading this author before now. Well in my own defense, there are so many great authors around, I don’t always come across many of them unless I’m browsing. So Thank you social media for that. Especially Instagram! But in this instance the book found me. Yea!! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. If you don’t yet have it on your TBR, you need to check it out!

Just wow! This book will get your blood heating. I loved it from the first page to the last. Ruthless was sexy and sinful, with smoking hot intimacy. The characters were sexy and lovable. Roman was arrogant while Addie was sassy and independent. The dialogue was witty and
dirty. The monologue gave us the perfect images of the complexity of these characters. I loved it so much that I put the rest of the series on my TBR. Having started the series with book two, I have some catching up to do.


Roman and Addie…..

Roman is an attorney by day. But when it’s playtime, he dances, he strips, he makes women all around him wet their panties. And when Roman picks one to ‘play’ with? Damn what a lucky girl! Roman gets what and who he wants. Except for one woman. Oh he wants her alright but he can’t have her. What makes the situation more difficult is that she wants him too. Unfortunately, she falls under one of Roman’s ‘do not touch’ rules. Addie is a friend of a good friend. No can do.

Addie…from the moment she sets her eyes on Roman, Addie is determined to have him. The hell with his stupid moral rules of ‘friend code.’ Addie is not deterred by Roman’s rule. In fact she is more determined than ever to have him. Addie loves a challenge. She will change his mind.

Addie is way too sexy and Roaman finds his resolve obliterated. But it’s just a one-and-done, right? So it shouldn’t be a big deal as long as they are on the same page. They will have their one night and move on. They don’t ever have to see each other again. Right?

When it turns out that Addie will be working for Roman they are both surprised. Unfortunately neither can seem to remember their promise to each other of one night. Things get complicated real fast. Roman likes a structured world and having Addie so close turns that world on its axis. Roman loses his resolve a second time. And many more times after that.

Roman and Addie are so good together; they have scorching hot chemistry. There is always sexual tension when they are in the same room together. Roman has very particular kinks which is why he has never stayed with any woman. Addie surprises and excites him when she voices her acceptance of his tastes. She wants to keep him so she is willing to try whatever he likes. And just wow! She was a lucky, lucky girl.

Addie and Roman are perfect for each other. The sex and intimacy between them was off the charts. I was so engrossed in every moment having read it in one sitting. They were so perfect as a couple that I just knew something was going to happen to ruin it.

Roman, Roman, Roman.

Roman ended up hurting Addie all because of a misunderstanding. But he hurt himself just as badly.

I just loved how it all turned out. The ending was amazing. I can’t wait to read the rest of this series, especially Austin’s book. I looooooved him!!!!
