About this ebook

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.

This review was written by Marie for a guest review post on Ever After Book Reviews blog: Rating: 3.5 Stars When I read the first book of this series, I fell in love immediately. A brilliant story of revenge that includes espionage, deception, and scandal. It’s an addicting premise for any fan of suspense. But what makes that premise spectacular is the characters who help to make it unfold before your very eyes. So when Satisfaction was released, I was thrilled that I’d see more of what made the first book of the series so great. Or would I… Satisfaction starts right where Ruthless left off. Ms. Blake throws you right back in to the lives of the Lawless siblings with full force. Naturally, I’m hooked. Our sibling this go-round, Brandon (otherwise known as Bran), is sexy. He’s internally fighting his need for revenge, but he’s also got a certain old-fashioned charm to him that is undeniably attractive. So when he meets Carly, his enemy’s assistant, I was thrilled at the idea of their romance exploding before me with all kinds of chemistry. Except… it never did. Now, don’t get me wrong. Lexi Blake knows how to write some extremely steamy scenes. She just… gets it. But all eroticism and steaminess aside, the needed connection between Carly and Bran was just never there for it to be a truly believable romance. Something with the two of them was just off for me. I’m not sure if it was Bran’s self-wallowing, or Carly’s insecurities and lack of compassion for those around her… or if it was just that their personalities weren’t compatible. Either way, this was the one area of the book that truly lacked for me. That being said, this was still a solid story. Ms. Blake is a fantastic story-teller with a unique voice. Satisfaction may not have been as good as Ruthless, but she still manages to continue the saga of the Lawless siblings the best way she knows how – with sizzle. ***I read and reviewed a paperback copy of the book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own***

5 Star Review Satisfaction (Lawless #2) by Lexi Blake Satisfaction is book two in Lexi Blake’s latest series Lawless and was just as great as the first book. The Lawless brothers Riley, Drew, Brandon, and their sister Mia, are bound and determined to seek revenge on those they hold responsible for their parents’ murders 20 years ago. Separated after their parent’s death and out into the foster care system, the siblings fought to regain control of their lives whilst actively seeking revenge. Their lives were not easy, particularly Bandon’s and it is from this that they draw their strength and their commitment to seek justice for their parents. When the opportunity arises for Brandon to get close to Carly Hendricks, the personal assistant to Patricia, one of the people responsible, he jumps at the opportunity. Brandon realises quickly that he wants more from Carly and struggles with his feelings and in fact opens-up to her about his “mission”. When circumstances put Carly in danger, Brandon knows he has no choice but to fight for her very life. Brandon has struggled throughout his life, not believing that he deserves love and happiness. Will Carly be the one to make a difference? Brandon’s history is at times heartbreaking and certainly made for an emotional read at times. The chemistry between Brandon and Carly was sizzling. There was mystery, intrigue, suspense, hot alpha men and as you can expect from most books from Ms. Blake some moments of humour. I love Lexi Blake’s writing style; no one does romantic suspense like she does. Brandon and Carly deserved to find happiness after the heartbreak and tragedies of their pasts. Satisfaction is one of those books that in many parts, you read and go, wait, no, did that really happen? I am eagerly anticipating the next book in the series particularly since Satisfaction ended on such a cliff-hanger and I cannot wait for Revenge. These books are like peeling an onion, one layer at a time until the mystery is solved. I would suggest that you read them in order.

Bran and Carly were waiting for each other to come into their life, they just didn’t know it. Both were soft and agreeable on the surface but they carried a lot of pain in their big hearts. Protective instincts made them vulnerable to others who would use them, and that made them doubt their self-worth. Of course, those same instincts made for both good things and bad things in their relationship. Once they were finally able to open up and be their true self, they were even strong together!
