She doesn’t know she caught my attention.

Disappointed1 star

This book was so disappointing. I enjoy her other novels but this storyline is terrible and much less believable than the others. 15


One of the most anticipated!!5 star

Just when I thought I figured out what was coming next, Meghan made sure there was a plot twist. And the ending made me pause. It made me jump into the next book. 55

Highly recommend5 star

An absolute must read. This trilogy and the following trilogy, set in the same time and place, is astounding. Strongly written, bold characters that show major development, and an amazing plot with twists and turns that will keep you on your toes. These 6 books are page turners and I read them all in 4 days. High praise for Meghan March and her brilliant writing. 55

This book was terrible! Can’t even make it through the first chapter,I like sexy,but I didn’t even have a chance to care about these people before the ridiculous sets in. 15


Amazing!!!!!5 star

This entire trilogy was an amazing read. I finished the last one in just a few days. It had the right amount of everything, sex, love, crime, suspense. I loved it!!!! 55


Couldn't stop reading it!5 star

This series engulfed me and I couldn't put it down. Very captivating, sexy, thrilling & great character development! 55


Good but.....4 star

Way too short. It barely got going before it stopped. Of course a shocking cliffhanger that I was totally expecting. 45


Everything I needed.... & more5 star

I'm going to be honest, the first few pages were a bit dry for me. I feel like I didn't get enough Mount.. after that, I couldn't get enough of the book, and I'm about ready to sell my soul for the last book! 55

Ruthless King is another 5 Star read!!5 star

Well. That cliffhanger. Those last few twists. Ruthless King was even better than I expected and I already thought it was going to be amazing. I loved everything about Lachlan Mount and Keira Kilgore’s story so far and to think there is more!! The fact that there is so much more about Lachlan Mount that peeks out from that hard mask of his. He’s not a good guy. But he’s so sexy and burdened with this dark power. “Heavy is the head that wears the crown”—it’s clear that Mount has demons that give him no peace. And he wants Keira. And he will do anything to get her. And while she isn’t powerless exactly, it’s hard to fight someone like Mount. At least hard to fight him on everything. Especially when there are things he offers that she wants. Even if she hates to admit it. This relationship is tempestuous and hateful and passionate and there’s this thread—this sliver of want, of need, of being completely wrong and yet completely right for each other—that keeps them craving more. But can it work? Something or someone has to break. But who will break first? Because both Keira and Mount are strong and stubborn and determined to get their way. And their battle of wills is sexy as all get out. And I can’t wait to see what happens next. Defiant Queen can’t come soon enough! **Ruthless King will publish on October 17, 2017. I received an advance reader copy courtesy of Meghan march in exchange for my honest review. 55


My favorite Meghan March book to date!5 star

Phenomenal! Dominating Mount and spitfire Kiera makes for an explosive first book in this series! Devoured it, could not put it down. Hot! Sexy! Alpha! Twist and turns!!! A must read! 55


Exciting Start to a new series5 star

5 stars Seriously! I should have seen that end coming! I was unsure how it was going to end and how the serious was going to continue. And then the end came! WHAT! And I mean WHAT IN THE HECK! Ruthless. Mothertrucker. Ashhole. All names that Lachlan Mount has heard. He calls himself ruthless. All of the other have come from the sassy redhead responsible for paying off her dead husband's debt. Keira's life didn't turn out the exact way she imagined. She definitely didn't imagine ever knowing Mount. He was everything he warned her about. She does her best at keeping him on his toes and royally pissing him off, but she's also learned when to reel it in. I sense there is a softer side to Mount, one that we catch small glimpses of when Keira isn't pushing his buttons. Defiant Queen can't come soon enough. I need to know what happens and how it's all going to play out now that there is another player in the game. Meghan March has yet another home run with this series! 55


Bring on Defiant Queen!5 star

Such a good read! If you like a strong alpha and strong female, you want to read the story of Keira and Lachlan. Can't wait to continue the story of Keira and Lachlan. I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for book 2. 55

I'm hooked and can't wait for more!!!5 star

**"All you have to do is ask for it." It's like the devil offering up your deepest desire for the low, low price of your soul.** Ruthless King aka Lachlan Mount is a sexy alpha beast of a man that oozes dangerous power as he "rules with fear, but gains respect with actions"......he's dark desire and fiery passion that will have you craving and begging for what he offers all while hating him for it, until that hate becomes a fire within burning with a "primal, uncontrollable" want that you've never felt before!!!! I'm clearly already hooked on this new Mount Trilogy and am ready to BEG for more!!!! 55



Oh.My.Gosh. If you haven't been introduced to Meghan March yet, (and I'm totally giving you the side eye for it!) PLEASE read Ruthless King! It's sexy and addictive. It is the first book of a trilogy, however all will be released before the end of the year (2017). Ruthless King is the beginning of what is going to be one wild ride of a series. Kiera is smart business woman, trying to keep her family's business afloat. Faced with things beyond her control, she meets Mount. The guy who basically OWNS New Orleans. Tough and not afraid to get his hands dirty, Mount is simply sinful. This book makes your heart pound and sing. It's a book I just did NOT want to end. I wanted to stay in this world for as long as possible, and I'm simply CRAVING Defiant Queen for the next part of their story! 55
