A review copy was provided by Midas PR in return for an honest review

I should start by saying that I haven't read any of the other Annie Carter novels, nor have I read anything by Jessie Keane before this. When I fist looked at the book my first thought was "ugh". One of my pet peeves is starting a book and realising that its number 4, 5, or 6 in a series that I've never read. My worry was unfounded as I really enjoyed this book!

It seems that Annie Carter has been through a lot at the start of Ruthless. She has been hounded in the past by the Delaney twins and she thinks she has finally gotten rid of them. However one survives, is deeply scarred emotionally and is bent on revenge. On top of that she has a daughter who blames her for the split in her marriage to the Mafia Tycoon, Max.

Despite the book being over 450 pages long it was paced really well. The chapters are short and each is told from a different characters POV. This can sometimes cause the story to become disjointed but this wasn't the case here. The chapters merge seamlessly . 

Annie is an excellent lead character. She is driven and utterly fierce. She is the type of person that a reader can really get invested in. I certainly found it hard to put this book down at the end of the night. The end of every chapter left me hungry to start the next. Then you look up and it's 2 in the morning. 

My only regret is that I hadn't discovered Jessie Keane and Annie Carter earlier. I am really looking forward to the next instalment!
