Excellent the best ever loved this series
Wonderful way to end series
I absolutely devour anything that Ms. Blake writes. I love her Masters and Mercenaries series. So when she started this new Lawless series I couldn't wait to read what she came up with. As always she did not disappoint with her expertise for telling an amazing story of love, lust, sex, suspense, loyalty, and family.
The Lawless siblings lived a tragic young adulthood. Their parents were murdered but the public was left to believe their father killed their mother in an apparent murder suicide leaving their children to die in a house fire. The siblings survived thanks to the oldest Andrew Lawless who brought his siblings to safety in more ways than one. Forced to become the patriarch of his family Drew sets out at a young age to avenge his parents' death and attempt to take care of his siblings. As they each are put into separate foster care they all have their own stories to tell which you can read about in the previous books in this series.
Drew always found himself putting his siblings and revenge before anything else. He is socially awkward and tends to have no filter. So when Shelby a reporter catches his eye the only way he knows how to get her in his bed is to manipulate her into doing what he wants. At times I wanted to slap him for being so cold but then I wanted to hug him because his life was never easy. Drew found it very hard to express himself. While Shelby had no problem at all telling it like it is. Loved her.
As the last story in the series unfolds the Lawless clan find out more and more secrets about their parents and what really happened to them. There are so many twists, turns, and surprises but Lexi Blake knows how to hold your interest.
It was a terrific experience to watch Drew and Shelby find their love of a life time. The chemistry between these two was insane. Shelby was just the right woman to keep Drew Lawless on his toes.
Another exceptional Lexi Blake read for me. I hope she is able to find away to give us more of these wonderful characters.
Love Conquers Revenge :)
This was a roller coaster of who done it, and oh hell no you didn’ts for me. I absolutely loved this series and it was an automatic to jump in since I am a fan of Lexi Blake. From meeting Mia in the Master and Mercenaries series with Case I loved where the series was leading.
Alright please read these books in order, and if I have to be honest I would say that if you have the time and inclination to go alllllll the way back and begin with the Master & Mercenaries Book 01: The Dom Who Loved Me or if you don’t have time to go all the way back you could say that the Lawless action begins in Masters & Mercenaries Book 11: Dominance Never Dies with Mia & Case Taggert.
Book One: Ruthless
Book Two: Satisfaction
Book Three: Revenge
I don't think that someone that jumps in with this book will pick up the back stories and nuances of the side characters that ultimately pop up. Think about what I discussed above and where you are going to begin this journey.
This book is an awesome book. From start to finish the connection between the main characters is very focal. The awkward and socially stunted tech guru (Drew) and the ready for the role investigative journalist (Shelby). If you were a fan of the Lawless family there is lots of interaction with Drew’s brothers and sister just for you.
The heartbreak of these children’s lives was very emotional and I really felt this plot down to my core. As the eldest sibling I think that I related to Drew and his sense of responsibility. So for me any series that chronicles siblings resonates with me.
Alright I am usually a pretty good judge of where the book I am reading is leading me, and what the conclusion is probably going to be, but this one had some lefts and rights that I didn’t even count on which was a splendid surprise.
You will love it if you... loved any of Lexi Blake’s novels prior, love a complex love stories that didn’t start as a love story, want to read a HEA novel, a fan of Shayla Black cause I love both authors, wanna be kept at the edge of your seat, love romance novels, and if you love to read...so everyone should give this series and novel a chance.
