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.
Satisfaction by Lexi Blake brought me just that, satisfaction. I love Ms. Blake’s writing style and the way she is able to write a suspenseful read that is also filled with some angst, drama, and sexiness. Satisfaction is the second book in this series and I really do believe that it is beneficial for you to have read Ruthless first. I read Ruthless over again before reading Satisfaction and enjoyed it more the second time around.
Bran and Carly will grab your attention from the very start. I had to know what was going to happen next, and I wanted to know more about Bran especially. I hated that he thought he would screw it up and that his brothers acted that way as well. Bran has a good heart, reasons why he is the way he is and I just wanted everything to be so much better for him. Carly also had a reason to be defensive, hell the woman worked for the devil to put it nicely and had been burned more than once in the past.
With each book we get more answers but questions as well. I am fully invested into this series now and can’t wait to get the next book. That ending! I did not see that coming at all I think I opened and closed my mouth about ten times before I yelled WHAT! Satisfaction is one suspense filled read and one that I recommend.
Lots of the stupid spoiler things happen in this book. They make for a great book... but a boring review.
So, stuff happens. And there's a "Hold on, WHAT?!?!?" cliffhanger. And some hot sex. That was in there.
Brandon and Carly...well, Bran, are great together and the author tells not only a continuation of the murder mystery from the first book but also their romance. It's a little dark, not a lot but a little. And I hot. And emotional. And you will love him. Because he's sweet, and a little damaged, but great for all of that.
The writing is strong. I was mostly good with the pacing but I did think it was a little slow in the middle (hence the 4 stars) but overall I enjoyed this one and am looking forward to the next in the series.
Read this one. I'm glad I did. You will be too... and then we can talk about the spoilers.
