Series: Kings of Rittenhouse #3
“I think these two had great chemistry!”
~ Under the Covers
I’ve been itching to get my hands on Avery and Emmett’s book since the beginning of this series. They were high school sweethearts and so in love with each other. He was the rich trust fund kid and she was the janitor’s daughter going to the fancy school on a scholarship. Until one fateful night and everything exploded. Dreams came crashing down. And they’ve hated each other ever since.
Sometimes, when a book is highly anticipated there’s extra pressure for it to meet those expectations and satisfy everyone. I personally have to say that RUTHLESS KING fell a bit short of meeting those for me. And most of that had to do with their past. The reason for their past breakup and that caused so much drama between them. I wanted a good reason and in the end I wasn’t a bit fan of it.
However, when Avery and Emmett are forced to interact with each other for the first time in years while vacationing together with the Kings at a summer house the sparks are flying right away. The anger, the hurt, the betrayal. But also the attraction they can’t deny. I think these two had great chemistry!
In the end, I can’t rate this higher because I honestly hate when characters can’t sit down and have a normal conversation. Miscommunication isn’t my favorite thing to read about. Whether that’s a misunderstanding or a big omission and assumptions. While I found some of that frustrating, I still breezed through reading this book and enjoyed myself.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
