My dick never got me in half as much trouble as my heart...
We were high school sweethearts. I was head over heels for
her and no one could tell me we weren’t going to last forever. College? Going
pro? My family’s money? None of it mattered. She was all I needed.
Then she ripped my heart out. But I’m not going to let that
She’s back. Invading my life and acting like she was the
wronged one. The pain is still there, but I can’t keep my eyes off her. I can’t
stop thinking about her and how much was left unsaid between us. Being this
close is making me question everything I thought I knew about her.
This time everything will be on my terms. Everything…
Emmett and Avery! This is the one I've been waiting for since the prequel. This second chance romance comes with all the angst I expected and then some. Most of that angst comes by way of secrets and things left unsaid. At this point, I have to add that Avery drove me a little crazy with those secrets. The whole I can't tell him - I have to tell him - I can't tell him wore a bit thin after awhile, and I reached a point that I really wanted to give her a good shake. But here's the thing, even as Avery frustrated the living daylights out of me, I still found myself rooting for her, and even though I wanted her to reveal everything, I understood why she held back. And Emmett - sweet, generous, broken Emmett. He has so much built up anger and confusion inside him, and not all of it revolves around Avery. Most of the book takes place in one setting and the whole group is together, which serves a dual purpose. It gives readers a chance to catch up with past faves, and with so much animosity between Avery and Emmett, a group effort is needed to even get them in the same room, let alone communicating. The story is angsty and emotional, but the author also gives us some lighter moments with witty dialogue between all these lovable characters. And let's not forget that this pair is absolutely scorching hot together. All in all, Ruthless King is another must read in this series of must reads.
Maya Hughes has always loved romance novels. One look at her Kindle is confirmation. She started writing her first romance novel while pregnant with her third child and she hasn’t looked back. Now, her romance writing addiction has replaced her romance reading addiction.
You can find her writing on her foldable keyboard and phone anytime inspiration strikes. Her sweet and steamy stories range from rockstars to small towns and everything in between. When she’s not writing, she’s playing with her three kids, running errands or vegging on the couch with the love of her life and biggest fan, her husband.
