Series: Ruthless Kings MC #10
Author: K.L. Savage
Genre: Dark Romantic Suspense/Organized Crime
Release Date: January 8, 2021
Love is powerful force, but it doesn’t compare to guilt.
And just like most people, my guilt eats me alive.
I went from being an irresponsible kid who didn’t know any better, to an irresponsible man who does.
I make no apologies.
Don’t take my carelessness for strength.
My blood is as thick as the water that killed my brother and once I’m cut, there’s no stopping the river of rage.
My past is dead. I’m not like my MC brothers. Nothing is going to come bite me in the ass.
Or so I thought.
Because life gave me Mary, the little hellraiser who tries to be reckless.
She’s only looking to escape the nightmare of what happened to her in Atlantic City.
She’s a good girl. She doesn’t belong in this life.
Even if I know she belongs with me.
She paints her lips in red lipstick, but I know it’s an effort to hide the pain.
There’s more than the fact we are too different to be together.
Death calls on the Ruthless Kings.
And like idiots, we answered.
Her past isn’t dead.
And mine has come back to life.

Bad things don’t happen to good people.
Bad people do.
And it’s made me love and appreciate good people more. Maybe I’m different. Maybe I’m not crying every night or having nightmares. Maybe I’m not losing myself in drinks or drugs, but I have lost something about myself.
I’m just trying to find it.
“You give me a headaches twenty-three out of twenty-four hours a day, but I can’t sit here and lie to you and say you aren’t beautiful,” Knives says, honestly, meeting my eye and keeping his hands to himself.
The flames dance in his cornflower blue eyes and they are so damn bright. I’ve never seen irises like his before. They are unique, just like him.
“And the other hour?” I tease when I sit down on the hay, which scratches my ass and is very uncomfortable.
“I’m sleeping. It’s the only damn peace I get.”
“Shut up,” I giggle, nudging his side with my arm. I lean forward and lay my elbows against my knees, watching the fire as it pops. The rain is slamming against the barn and the door shakes when the wind carries around us.
“It’s not letting up, is it?”
“No, it isn’t. I can’t believe it turned so ugly so fast.”
“The way of the world is bittersweet, ain’t it?” he asks, the stands and when I go to ask him where he is going, my eyes land on his package.
His very big, very long, very in my face, package. He has a tattoo above the waistband of his underwear, right above where I assume his pubic hair is and it says 666.
What’s that mean?
If a woman hops on top, does that mean she gets possessed by the devil?
Why does a part of me want to find out?
K.L. Savage decided they were tired of looking for the kind of books they wanted to read. They had an itch that needed to be scratched, and as every girl knows, nothing scratches better than an alpha.
They write about gritty, alpha males, sometimes their dark sides, and the women they love.
My Review: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
I hadn’t really paid much attention to Knives in the past as he wasn’t as strong of a character in my eyes in past books, but what a mistake that was. He is such a strong, powerful character that I am sorry I didn’t pay much attention to him previously.
Thomas “Knives” keeps his heart walled up and away from anyone that might get too close and cause him pain. The only people that he gets close to are his brothers, the Ruthless Kings. He’s not sure why Mary St. James makes him so crazy or why the thought of her putting herself in danger makes him rage at her.
Mary St. James has lived a life of hell and when she was rescued by the Ruthless Kings MC she thought maybe her life would be better, but her irrational desire for danger and her lack of direction are making her wonder if where she goes now with her life. Her continued arguing with Knives makes her crazy, but that kiss at Christmas won’t stop playing over and over in her mind.
I love the Ruthless Kings, they are so much like a real family, always driving Reaper crazy with their continued picking and poking at each other as well as continually driving each other crazy the same as siblings do. They are loyal to the core though and would kill or step in front of a bullet for each other, there is no doubt. I love the craziness of their lives, but I do feel so bad that they cannot seem to get a break from the danger in their lives. It seems that they no more than curb one danger and then another one pops up to create havoc for them again. This story is no different. The danger in this story is not only from people, but nature for Mary and Knives. However, the danger from the human side is the deadliest for them. When Seer calls from NOLA, the whole MC gets nervous because they know that he never calls with good news. I love these stories and I so look forward to more. The Ruthless Kings not only bring out the laughs while I’m reading their stories, but they also bring out the tears because they have gone through so much to get to where they are and trying to find a peaceful, happy life seems to take so much work for them. I give this story a 5-star review and so look forward to more of the Ruthless Kings and Tongue’s swamp kitty.
