The sizzling second novel in a sexy new contemporary romance series featuring the Lawless siblings—from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake.

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.


The Lawless siblings still on their revenge to exposed the person who behind their fallout family. In the previous book, Ruthless, Riley Lawless managed to exposed StratCast with Ellie Stratton's help. Patricia Cain has became their next target. She supposed to be the key of their parent's death. But Brandon Lawless isn't like his brothers. No lies, only truth.

Carly Fisher works her ass off for Patricia Cain and decided to resign. Because of some unfortunate events, Patricia 'blackmail' her so she couldn't leave. As a wounded man, Bran didn't believe with himself. But helping Carly Fisher is the top priority and he believe she's innocent. He wouldn't use dirty tricks to Carly. Slowly Bran feels something for her beyond as fake lovers.

I was honest with you. I wasn’t trying to manipulate you.”
“Sure you weren’t. That’s why you would reach out and touch me every now and then.”
“I did that because I wanted to. Carly, I wasn’t lying. I’m not trying to seduce you so you’ll work for me.”
She frowned his way, her arms crossing over her chest. “Then why the seduction act?”
“Because I want to sleep with you.”

I found it hard to like Carly. Well, she's independent and hard-working person. But there is something with her that I didn't 'click'. I think she's lack of passion or something. Her life only for works and her sister, nothing intriguing to know more. Because of her failed marriage, Carly feels insecure with her body. Moreover the pressure from her evil boss, Patricia Cain.

On the other side, Bran is a whole package of mysterious. He never talk about his past. He fool around with strip club and drinking before Carly. The worst is the anger issue when he lost control. Bran also has knight-in-shinning-armor syndrome. He actually likes her from the first time, but he didn't brave enough to admit it.

You don’t move until I move you. You said you didn’t want to be treated like a porcelain doll. How about my sex toy? My pretty little sex toy. This is all for me and I can do anything I want with you. I ordered you. They asked what I wanted and I said I wanted breasts that fit my hand, pretty pink nipples I can twist and play with.”

The most important thing, there is no sparks between Bran and Carly. The sex was okay, I guess. Maybe because the lack of chemistry between them. I enjoyed the dirty talk but somehow, it was frustrating to remember they're always round in circle with same problem. Carly's insecurity with her damsel-in-distress attitude irritated me. She keeps bringing it up again and again.

The story was well-written but very slow and too long to get done. It didn't bring up to my speed with their revenge plot which is kinda failed. A decent read, though. The ending was anti-climax, but Lexi Blake managed to surprise us with another unpredictable move. I can't wait for the final book. It is about Drew Lawless! Yeah, that hot nerd. Together with Shelby Gates; a reporter and Carly's friend, he will seek the truth.
