Ruthless (Playboys in Love # 2)

By Gina L. Maxwell


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.


RUTHLESS is the second book in the Playboys in Love series and considering I thought this series was about male strippers falling in love, I was surprised⎯and a little disappointed⎯there was only one stripping scene throughout the entire story.  Hot men stripping?  More, please.

I loved Addison, who is a very smart and confident woman.  She’s not ashamed of her sexuality and is very capable of keeping her personal and professional relationships with Roman separate.  She’s a fierce woman who has no problem putting Roman in his place, but she’s not a bitch.  The only time she caused me to roll my eyes was when she realised she was in love with Roman immediately after having her first threesome with him and one of his friends.  I just couldn’t wrap my head around that one.

While I loved Addison, I wasn’t sold on Roman, a.k.a. Ruthless.  Roman is your clichéd playboy, one who avoids commitment because his parents are divorced and he occasionally handles divorce cases in his job as an attorney.  Even the breakup Roman caused was clichéd in my opinion.  I also wasn’t a fan of his physical description when he wasn’t in lawyer mode.  All the bling, piercings and chains were not a turn on for me.  But his sex scene were HOT!

RUTHLESS is told in dual POVs and came with a HFN ending for Roman and Addison.  While it’s part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone.  We saw a lot of Roman’s best friend and stripper business partner⏤Austin⏤in this book, which has me wondering if he will get the next one.
