WOW! What a fan-freaking-tastic conclusion to a roller coaster ride of a series. The end of Satisfaction had me reeling, screaming  “WTF just happened” and left me wanting more… More passion, more sexy Lawlessness and more answers. I couldn’t wait to get my greedy hands on Drew’s book and finally untangle the convoluted web of secrets and deceptions behind his father’s murder. Although my anticipations ran high, deep down I did not want this saga to end. Seeing all their heartaches and joys, I fell in love with the Lawless family and will miss them tremendously. Lexi Blake has out done herself with another intense romance filled with twists and turns that had me constantly on edge. Revenge was by far my favorite read within the trilogy.

This is Drew’s story and he stole the show and my heart in this read. To fully understand his character, his experiences and the complexities of the story line, you’ll need to read the prior two installments. He’s a survivor. A fighter. A shrewd and successful businessman. Above all - Drew loves his family to a fault, selflessly putting their safety, happiness and protection before his own. Wary of outsiders, very few are permitted into his inner circle of trust, and with good reason.  On the surface he’s guarded and manipulative, bringing the broody-temperamental-reclusive hero persona to a whole new level of sexy. But seeing his painful past, I understood the revenge seeking man he needed to be. I adored him despite his often-assholish like tendencies and I could not wait for that heartwarming moment when the iceman cracked under the weight of sweet Shelby’s affections. That’s when I truly fell for all things Drew, seeing him change from detached and unapproachable to so openly loving.

Shelby’s the perfect match for the likes of Drew. This tenacious reporter, hired to investigate the decades old murder of Ben Lawless, has a soft spot when it comes to our hero. Beyond compassionate and understanding, she endearingly tends to all of Drew’s needs - showering him with love while melting his icy heart. Together, their sexual chemistry explodes, making this the hottest read of the series. The connection they share is powerful and instantaneous.

Once again Blake had me under her spell, imprisoned within the pages of her riveting love story. This read had it all…lust, passion, intensity, unending plot twists, lovable characters, nefarious villains and touching emotional moments. For fans of romantic suspense, this series is a must read.  

I voluntarily read an advance copy in exchanged for an honest review


Shelby brushed her lips against his, her whole body seeming to come to life. His lips were soft, his hands tight. He was enveloping her and she was completely defenseless against him.
She wrapped her arms around him as the kiss deepened, and suddenly she didn’t want to play it safe anymore. She’d been in her shell for so long and she wanted to come out of it, wanted to feel again. She dragged her tongue over his lower lip, and it seemed to awaken the beast in Drew.
He took over, the kiss going from sweet to carnal in an instant. His mouth opened, tongue sliding over hers and dominating with strength and a sensuality she’d never come across before. He kissed her long and hard, his hands molding to the curves of her body. Over and over again his tongue danced with hers. Never before had a kiss seemed so effortless. It was like they’d been kissing forever.
For a man who claimed he was socially awkward, he sure could kiss like a god.
It was getting out of hand, but she didn’t care. Nothing mattered except getting more of him. She could feel his cock under her, hardening, lengthening, getting ready for what it was meant to do. He could ease her back against the table, pull off her jeans and panties. It would be incendiary, like a rocket going off, an explosion she couldn’t contain. She could feel herself getting soft and wet and ready for him, as though her body had recognized its natural mate and wasn’t taking no for an answer.
“See, I told you we have chemistry.” His words rumbled along her lips.
She couldn’t argue with him. The world around them seemed hazy and unreal. There was nothing except his touch and scent and the sight of his eyes looking at her like he could eat her up. She knew she should stop him, knew it was getting out of control, but she couldn’t find the will. It had been so damn long since she wanted something she could actually have.
She wanted him.
Shelby let her fingers sink into his hair, drawing him back down. Breakfast could wait. She needed more of him.
