’Ruthless King’ by Meghan March review:
With everything going on on in the world right now, I wasn’t so sure if I would be in the mood for a bit of a darker romance. But I’m glad that I didn’t let that deter me from picking up Ruthless King by Meghan March because I was instantly hooked.
Lachlan is very much an alpha male/anti-hero. Despite his dominating personality, he’s become bored with everyone around him doing exactly what he wants. Which is why Keira’s fiery personality and refusal to be broken catches his attention.
Keira has faced a rough year, but despite that she hasn’t given up her dream of running the family distillery. She’s the first woman in her family to take on the role and she’s determined to make her parents proud.
“I will find a way to fix this. Somehow. Some way. I will” The silence in my office is the only answer I need. I don’t believe myself either. But I have to do something or I’m fucked. And, apparently, Lachlan Mount will be doing the fucking.”
But with so many hardships she’s had to face, Keira is broken to learn that there’s another debt against the business – one that she didn’t know about until it was past due.
Since Keira doesn’t have the money to pay back the debt, Lachlan offers up a way out of paying while still letting her keep her business afloat. It means going against her morals, but Keira is determined to keep her dignity and dreams.
Despite Keira’s initial hatred of Lachlan, there’s no denying that they have a blazing chemistry. Their back and forth made it clear that even though Keira may be backed into the corner in the situation, she’s still a strong and independent woman.
“My fingers curl into the lace-and-linen tablecloth as I try to hold on to some semblance of my sanity. How can I want this man? I hate him. But I’ve never craved anyone more.”
There’s also a fair amount of mystery, suspense, and danger in Ruthless King. The reader is till figuring out the extant of Lachlan’s power throughout the novel, and as each page went by you’ll want to learn even more about the enigmatic character.
The novel does end with a bit of a cliff hanger and I was so upset that there wasn’t more to read! I’m greedy for the next book in the trilogy to find out what happens next with Lachlan and Keira, especially with how things were left off!
