Review: RUTHLESS by Gina Maxwell! GIVEAWAY!

Ruthless BT BanToday we have the blog tour for Ruthless by Gina Maxwell! Check out this fantastic sexy romance and grab your copy now!

My Review: Lawyer by day, stripper by night - who could pass that up? Not only is he brainy and knows how to argue his way out of a corner, he'd have all the right moves. And boy does he! Roman made my glasses steam up more than a few times. What I liked about this book was that these guys have their own kinks, and are pretty dang unapologetic about them, which is a-okay in my book. What I didn't like was that by falling in love, Roman's kink fell by the wayside. And considering how important it was to him throughout most of the book, it just felt like he was losing a part of himself - like he wasn't being true to himself/his character.

That said, I thought the dialogue, drama, and relationships between all the characters felt spot-on. This book isn't very long - less than 300 pages - and I breezed through it because I had to know what was going to happen. I was invested in this book from very early on, and I couldn't get enough. I did get confused a time or two by how much time had passed/was passing - so that might throw interested readers for a loop, but the rest of it? Awesome! I will definitely have to check out Chance's story, but I'll be pining for Austin's story the most. Hopefully we'll get that soon!

Cover Lovin': Very yummy, for sure.

Recommendation: While this is part of a series, each book can definitely be read as a stand alone.

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5)! This was a very fun, and hot!, read. I'll definitely be adding the first book to my TBR pile, and I'll be crossing my fingers to see Austin's story soon!

Happy Reading!

About Ruthless:

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 be ruthless.

Review: PLANNED SEDUCTION by Jess Dee!

Planned Seduction BT Banner Today is our stop on the blog tour for Planned Seduction! Grab your copy today and follow along the tour for all the fantastic release info.

My Review: This story had a lot of good things going for it. First off - it's a friends to lovers story line, and that's an instant classic. Next up, it was the hero that knew he was in love and wanted the relationship, and it was the heroine that was reluctant. While I would see that here or there before, I'm seeing it even more now, and I love it. In so many books it takes some big act or accident, or whatever, for the hero to realize that he's truly in love with the heroine. But not here - Daniel knows he's in love, he knows what he wants, and he's going to do whatever it takes to get her to fall in love with him too.

Now to what made me a little hesitant about this book - Amy. I wanted to shake her and make her realize that she was throwing away a good thing. And no matter what her good intentions were, she was just hurting everyone involved. I get it, being betrayed by a former love sucks royally and does make you look at future relationships a different way. But she just seemed like she was constantly shoving her head in the sand, and neglecting the feelings of the person that is supposedly her best friend.

Cover Lovin': Woo boy, it would be hard to pass this one up!

Recommendation: No prior knowledge necessary!

Final Rating: THREE AND A HALF out of FIVE stars (3.5/5). I thought this was a fun, one-sitting read. I loved Daniel, and he's dedication to getting what he wanted.

Happy Reading!

Planned Seduction
About Planned Seduction: He has a plan she can’t refuse Daniel Tanner’s been in love with Amy since they were teenagers. If she would only give him a chance to show her how good they could be together, he could convince her the fiery attraction between them won’t burn up and ruin their friendship. Amy Morgan’s had a front row seat to the parade of women coming in and out of Daniel’s life for years, so she’s not interested in risking what they have for something that would eventually end with her heart being broken by her best friend. And life has taught her broken hearts is the way love always ends. But no one knows Amy better than Daniel, and he’s devised a plan to show her they can have it all. (This book has been previously published. It is re-releasing as part of Entangled Publishing’s Brazen Line.)

About Jess Dee: An avid romance reader since her early teens, Jess knew one day, when she grew up, she’d have to write her own love stories. And she did. Although the first one was pretty awful. But once she discovered it was okay to leave the bedroom door open in her romance novels, she decided to leave everything open. Buttons, zips, pants, number of lovers...Which is why her books are all steamy erotic romances. Jess’s first published story was originally contracted in 2005. Since then, she’s completed over 30 books, and is finally doing the work she loves most—writing romance.   While Jess lived most of her life in South Africa, the last fourteen years have been spent in Australia. From the fast-paced Sydney lifestyle to the laid-back islands and beaches, there’s always another gorgeous Aussie setting for a contemporary romance.
