Ruthless: A Mafia Step Brother Romance Alexis Abbott (Author)
5 Sexy Stars!
This is a fast-paced, suspense filled story. This story has strong characters, an exciting plot and a happily ever after. It will keep you on the edge of your seat the whole way through the book. This is an erotic romance with a tattoo, bad boy who loves to be an alpha male in and out of the bedroom. *Possible Spoiler* Sarah Fairfax has been struggling the last 2 years since her step mother threw her out. So, Sarah is shocked when she gets a call from her step mother asking to see her. Sarah’s step mother wants her to spy on Dimitri, her step brother, in exchange for money. Sarah has always had a crush on Dimitri, but Sarah is also angry with Dimitri for not helping her out when she was homeless. She agrees to spy and report back to her step mother to get revenge on Dimitri. Dimitri Brokov is a dangerous man, a Russian Mobster, and a billionaire. He is has always had feelings for Sarah and has wanted her to be his. Dimitri knows that it is safer for Sarah away from him. When they see each other in the coffee shop, old feelings for both Sarah and Dimitri come back and are reawaken. Dimitri tries to remind Sarah of the last time they saw each while sitting in the coffee shop.
Sarah has always known that Dimitri was a dangerous and ruthless man. She has known most of his secrets and is not scared of him. After some tragedy, an attempted kidnapping and threats on both their lifes, Dimitri decides that he wants Sarah in his life and in his bed. Sarah is a feisty, smart and gutsy woman, who will take on anyone to be with her man. Dimitri can be very deathly when he needs to be, and he can be very sweet and caring also.
Be forewarned this story does has some violence and step siblings in a relationship. There is nonstop action and a dominate male, who can be very bad and has a dirty mouth. There are some very hot sex scenes that you may need to fan yourself while you read. Overall, I can’t say enough about this story. I highly recommend this book to loves of Alpha Males, Step stories and/or Mafia stories. * I was given this book in exchange for an unbiased review. *
Roxie Noir (Author) 4 Stars! *Possible Spoilers* Charlotte Mullins is in Cascadia to capture a feral bear shifter. She has come looking for the feral bear that has been attacking and killing wolf shifters. Charlotte “Charlie” believes that the feral bear shifter is Kade Lessing. She is not afraid of shifter, because Charlie has been around them all her life. While in the woods with Kade in her sights and a gun in her hand, Charlie is attacked by wolves. Kade Lessing and his mate, Daniel, live a fairly simple life. Kade has helped feral bear shifters in the past and continues to do it. Daniel is one shifter that was helped by Kade and then fell in love with him. They built a live together until they can find someone to complete their triad. When Kade hears Charlie scream, he runs to her aid. After fighting off the wolves that attacked Charlie, Kade carries her home. Daniel and Kade with the help of his cousin Hunter work on nursing Charlie back to health. On day there is a knock at the door, a swifter wolf has come to ask Kade to trade Charlie for Olivia. When the man / shifter wolf leaves, Charlie wants to know what is going on and who is Olivia. Charlie tells the men her plan to save Olivia, stop who is killing the wolf swifters, and how she will call in the FBI. Charlie is a feisty, strong and independent woman, who didn’t like that she had to rely on the men for help when she was injured. Kade is a strong silent type, who cares for others and wants to help those in need. Daniel is a sweet and kind man. He had to try harder than Kade to be understood and also to keep the peace (so to speak). This is the 3rd story in the series and can be read as a stand alone. The story of Kade, Daniel and Charlie revolves more around the characters and their relationship development then the other books, in my opinion. There is still the steamy sex scenes, but you get to know the characters, their stories, their feelings, etc. The build up to the good sex! ; ) I did like that Roxie Noir gave us a chance (again with this book) to see one of the character for a previous book. The introduction of Olivia makes me wonder what is to come next, if anything. I enjoyed this story and would recommend it others. **I received this arc copy in exchange for an honest opinion.

The romance and relationship between Jackie and Erik develops slowly, but the sex scenes are very hot and steamy. Jackie thinks that it is just a summer fling and that nothing will come of it. Jackie and Erik both develop feels for each other, but they are unsure how the other feels. The corrupt cops continue go after and attack Jackie. When she is kidnapped, Erik calls in help from his family. After Erik rescues Jackie, he knows that he wants Jackie is his life always. I loved both characters, Jackie and Erik. I am glad that the author let us get a look into the family unit that is the Petrovs (the family dinner). This story had romance, action, hot sex scenes, danger, good guys who are bad guys, and bad guys who are good guys. I recommend this book, especially those who enjoyed any of the other Russian Enforcer books. This book is part of a series, but can be read as a stand alone. **I received this book in exchange for an honest review.**

At the same time, he hears gun shots and runs to cover/protect Quinn. Julius’s bear says that she is his mate, and that she needs to be protected. Hudson also feels that Quinn is his mate and perfect to complete their triad.
Quinn is curious about Julius and Hudson, especially after seeing them kiss. She starts to question her parents and their beliefs. Quinn feels that she needs to do the right thing when she hears about a plot to kill Julius. I loved that Quinn decided to do the right thing, even if it was against her parents. Julius and Hudson are sexy men, who are in love with each other. Quinn is a smart young lady, who will fight for who she loves (and what she believes in). This is the book 2, but it can be read as a stand alone story. We get to check back in on Ash, Cora and Hunter. One of my favorite scenes was the picnic. I did appreciate that there is a message (theme) within this story. I think that the author great job with it. This is a steamy, hot read with two sexy men. I love a good menage story, and Roxie Noir never disappoints. **I was given this arc book in exchange for an honest review.**
