Brandon Lawless is a man on a mission: obtain the information that will clear his father’s name. He’s willing to do whatever it takes—even seduce his enemy’s personal assistant, the beautiful and innocent Carly Hendricks. But with her beguiling smile and captivating intelligence, Brandon soon realizes he doesn’t want to deceive Carly, he wants to win her over—both in the boardroom and the bedroom.
Then a twisted crime leaves Carly vulnerable and Brandon finds himself reeling. The stakes of his mission are now life or death—Carly’s life. And Brandon realizes he’s lost his heart to an amazing woman and his plan must succeed, because the stakes are no longer just revenge, but a once in a lifetime love.
Satisfaction is the second installment to the Lawless Family. It centers around Brandon Lawless and we learn about his experience after their parents were murdered.
I love Bran, yes he does have his issues but I think he is the soul of the family. He wants to be honest and upfront with everyone, including Carly. He has a different way of looking at the world and he knows when his brother is about to take things too far.
Patricia Cain is a special kind of evil. Where Bran is the soul of the family, Patricia has no soul. She uses everyone around her and she creates leverage so that people can’t get away from her, including Carly.
Carly is working her way back into the world after a failed marriage to a criminal. She works hard for everyone else and has a great heart. Even though she is trapped in her situation, Carly knows when to help those around her. She is extremely close to her sister who convinces her to start dating again through a dating app. She is conveniently paired with Drew. This is set up completely to continue with the Lawless plan of justice in the form of revenge. Bran is sitting watching the cafe when he sees Carly. He can’t let them pull her into their scheme without her knowing what is could happen to her. He knows in his heart that she will choose to help them. Carly is perfect for Bran. She hasn’t had it easy and still she has a great heart.
So much happens in Satisfaction. Carly is attacked on two fronts and we get to see Bran be the hero we know he can be. We also get to see Drew learn to be more of a human. He is starting to see what revenge is doing to his family. He does have a great heart to heart scene in this book and we also learn more about who he is attracted to. Ian Taggart also made an appearance in this book. We were given a treat with his insight of what is going on with the boys or in his words “puppies”.
Just like in other novels from Lexi Blake, she draws you in with emotion and humour. You fall for all her characters and she knows how to write a villain. I am excited to see what she has in store next for Drew.
