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.
Once again Lexi Blake has sucked me into the world of the Lawless family and their quest for revenge. This time around in Satisfaction we are alongside of the youngest brother Brandon…aka Bran. I was interested in him when he was first introduced last summer in Ruthless and I just wanted to know his story, what had happened to him all those years ago.
At the end of Satisfaction (spoiler ahead if you haven’t read it yet) we know that Bran intercepts a blind date that big brother Drew is supposed to be on. Not a real date, a fake one to further their plans. Enter Carly Hendricks. Game changer. I wasn’t sure how these two were going to mesh together. I didn’t know that much about Bran and well, Carly was a brand new introduction. As it turns out, both of them are a bit insecure (for different reasons), they are both protectors and pleasers and they both appear to feel unworthy of happiness or love. Can you hear my heart cracking….I’m a hugger and I just wanted to reach into the pages and squeeze them both.
“He’d been funny and charming. She’d loved watching him. Gallant. That was a good word for him. He’d pulled out her chair for her and poured the wine himself, but only after allowing her to make all the choices, even for him.”
At first I didn’t think much of that, until later we see that Bran gives people what they want, or what he thinks they want, and he puts himself second. It was endearing but it saddened me at the same time. Then we have Carly, skeptical and insecure….been burned before and is ever so cautious. She’s got some fire in her…
“I’m not buying the ‘I want you’ line of bullshit. It worked for Roger, but you’re too late. I’m not falling for that again. You must have thought you hit the jackpot when you walked up to me today. You probably fist-pumped at the thought of how easy I wold be to deal with. Plain girl a little on the chubby side. She’ll fall for the hot guy in a heartbeat. She’ll do anything I want.”
….see?? Spunky!! As things progress we learn more about the Lawless clan and the developments in their revenge. Bran and Carly develop a unique relationship, battling their pasts and their futures at the same time.
“Live in the moment. She wasn’t going to think about the inevitable future or mourn the past tonight. She would take placer in today because it was all she really had.”
Satisfaction is a story of finding your self worth, dealing with your past as it leads to your future and of course suspense and revenge! This series will not disappoint!
Grab Ruthless and see where it all began!!
