Review: Ruthless by Cheyenne McCray

Alexi Steele is determined, relentless, and driven to protect the innocent. She’s a top agent of the NSA’s clandestine Recovery Enforcement Division, specializing in human trafficking and sex crimes. Her current mission: To infiltrate the inner circle of Boston’s exclusive S&M clubs in order to save young women who are about to be auctioned off to the highest bidders. But Lexi’s only way in is under the control of her new partner in crime, Nick Donovan.

Nick will do whatever it takes to bring down the billionaire sex-ring mastermind who’s kidnapped his sister. But the games he must play as Lexi’s dominant are burning away his icy control and blurring the lines between partners. Meanwhile, their enemies are closing in as they enter a devastating race against time…bringing them dangerously close to a ruthless end.
I first read this book when it was under a different publisher and a different title. It was originally called The First Sin. I know the author mentioned making changes but after all these years, it was about 2009 when it first came out, and unless I read them back to back I couldn't tell you. all the changes. 

I really enjoy McCray's books and start with her when she wrote for Ellora's Cave. Because of that I already know how she writes and uses sex in her books. If you don't like graphic sex then I might not read this one. She has other series that are still sexy reads, just not as dark as this one. 

I really enjoyed how kick-ass Lexi is. She's very strong in charge woman. In the book, she goes through a lot and I don't know how she comes out of it in one piece but she does. 

You will also like Nick and feel for what he's going through too. He's fighting for his sister's life. He works along with Lexi to save her and others and to bring down the horrible men that endangered them. 

I have to say that this story is a very quick read. It's one of those that build and build until the end. McCray does a wonderful job of taking you on this journey along with her characters and I wouldn't have missed it. This story isn't for everyone but for those who don't mind this type of writing and are willing to try I think you'll enjoy it very much. Have any of you read her?
