|Kings of Rittenhouse #3|

|My dick never got me in half as much trouble as my heart…
We were high school sweethearts. I was head over heels for her and no one could tell me we weren’t going to last forever. College? Going pro? My family’s money? None of it mattered. She was all I needed.
Then she ripped my heart out. But I’m not going to let that happen again.
She’s back. Invading my life and acting like she was the wronged one. The pain is still there, but I can’t keep my eyes off her. I can’t stop thinking about her and how much was left unsaid between us. Being this close is making me question everything I thought I knew about her.
This time everything will be on my terms. Everything…
|Ruthless King (Kings of Rittenhouse #3) by Maya Hughes was the first book in that series that I read and I loved it – which proves that it is easy to read this story as a standalone. But once you read it you might not be able to enjoy the previous books afterwards to their fullest as parts of them might be spoilered.
When I came across the book I hesitated for a second because I thought it might not be for me as I had problems with second chance romances lately and also the blurbs first line made the male lead sound so full of himself.
Well it was a good thing that my heart overruled my head it in this special case and it did not steer me wrong. The plot is wicked with its twists and turns , still engaged readers might be able to guess at a certain point what will happen (well I did but it still did not rescue me from shedding a few tears so consider yourselves warned)
This is one of these books where your heart goes out to the leading characters for the time they lost. Due to circumstances that might have been avoidable, due to decisions that came from a good place but ultimately broke what was important the most – their heart. #sigh
I am not a fan of Now and Then storylines – as in a second chance novel the THEN is obvious because in the NOW they are not together – I call it the titanic factor – that ship is still at the bottom of the sea NOW no method of retelling will ever change that. But Ruthless King was somehow very satisfying for my heart. Righting the wrongs – even when Time is still lost felt good with these characters even if the journey towards this end hurts.
My reviews are rarely retelling the storyline as that is what the blurb is for – I am all about feelings when I read. And this book had enough of that to make me really love it. 5 Heartfelt Stars.
