He knows her secret.
But he'll never tell...

About The Author:
Mallory Crowe is the award winning author of the Fractured Farrells series, the Bad Boys of the Underworld series and many other novels. She grew up surrounded by rescue dogs and escaping into romance books whenever possible. After trying to do the "adult" thing by getting an accounting degree and CPA license, she decided to try her hand at writing and never looked back.
I loved this novel. Story starts off appearing as a typical hot guy and hot girl attracted to each other and then develops into a romantic thriller. This is my first read by this author and surely not my last, I literally couldn't put it down! Great plot twist, love scenes are lite and respectable would have preferred a little steamer but did not deflect from my enjoyment of Ruthless.
Great series start.
Billionaire Romance with a Twist
Ruthless is the first book in a new series Fractured Farrells. This can be read as a standalone with a HEA but does end in a soft cliffhanger for the next book. It is a quick read so it's perfect for an afternoon sitting outside by a pool, at the beach, or curled up on the sofa. There is some violence and hot steamy sex scenes so 18+.
The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that all of that info here. This book had a twist on the typical billionaire romance storyline, which I liked. But I think the character of Colin needed some more development and the ending felt too abrupt. That being said, I do want to find out more about the brothers and will continue to read the rest of the series.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
