In the latest novel in the series with the “sexiest, baddest, hottest”* outlaws around, one woman must choose between the two men who want to claim her…
…Or does she?
Despite his magnetic personality, Rylan can’t seem to seduce Reese, the deadly leader of their town of outlaws. Winning her over is a welcome challenge, but her indifference isn’t the only thing standing in his way. If he wants Reese, Rylan must also win over Sloan, her stoic protector…
Sloan has always loved Reese, but their painful past has stolen his chances of a future with her. Rylan’s interest in Reese only intensifies the tension—until Sloan begins to wonder if the reckless man might be the one person who can bridge the distance…
The last time Reese fell for the wrong man, she had no choice but to kill him. Now, she desperately wants to take what both Rylan and Sloan are offering. But if she makes the wrong call again, she risks losing them both.
Not having read an Elle Kennedy novel, I wasn’t sure what to expect. The synopsis for Ruled intrigued me. Who wouldn’t want to read a book about a group of badass outlaws led by a woman who just happens to be torn between two hot, badass men? The series sounded sexy and exciting. Unfortunately, I got the sexy piece, but not the exciting.
I didn’t feel like there was much of a plot at all. The story takes place in a dystopian society where destruction has occurred as a result of massive bombings worldwide. Now the world is led by one government, the Global Council. Different factions of outlaws fight to get out from under the control of this organization.
Reese is the leader of one of the outlaw groups and will do whatever she needs to in order to protect her people. Sloane is her sexy body guard and confidante. Sloane and Jake (Reese’s deceased husband) were best friends. Is it a betrayal to love your best friend’s wife?
Rylan is hotheaded, hot bodied, just plain hot! He wants Reese and will stop at nothing to get her. He’s not against sharing her with Sloane either and has approached both of them about this very scenario.
This book is filled with steamy scenes that could make anyone blush just a little bit. If that is what you’re looking for in a novel, this book is for you. If you want the steamy scenes mixed in with action and danger, you might be a little disappointed.
