Ruthless King – Maya Hughes

A STANDALONE second chance, enemies to lovers romance. 

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…

I’d like to thank Give Me Books Promotions as well as Maya Hughes for sending me an e-arc of this book it is very much appreciated. So this is the third book in the Kings of Rittenhouse series, I’ve read Shameless King and Reckless King. So through those two books I was anticipating Avery and Emmett’s story so much and it was my most anticipated read of this year! So when I finally started it! I was in love.

I feel so bad for Emmett like the pain he feels when it comes to Avery and how much what happened between them hurt him. I loved Emmett but whenever it came to Avery he became a really short fuse and he couldn’t control his anger or jealousy. Other than that really short fuse which obviously you can understand. I really liked him, he was caring and wanted the best for his friends.

I get the feeling Avery pushed Emmett away so she could take care of her sister and be the provider for her. If so that’s really sweet. I also get the feeling Emmett’s dad tried to pay her to stay away. I was totally right about these things. I felt so bad for Avery she had so much on her plate, wanting to protect her sister and her father. I loved the relationship between Avery and her sister it was so sweet. Avery was trying so hard to keep everything together for everyone without really taking care of herself sometimes.

Avery and Emmett had such a good connection like you could see their chemistry and how they felt about each other. Although the showdown between Avery and Emmett there was so much hurt and crap between them, and I could basically feel the pain that they were feeling and gosh it made me so emotional. I actually cried through this it was so painful for them and gosh it just hit me in the feels.

So we’ll just go with Emmett’s parents are absolutely disgusting people, that’s as much as I want to say about them without going into too much detail. But they were so horrible and their behaviour was not acceptable.

I love their friends! Colm, Kara, Mak, Declan, Ford, Heath, Olivia. I am glad they are forcing them together. They are such great friends and you can just tell them that they want the best for their friends, but I think we all need friends like that in life.

Such a beautiful story I fell crazy in love with this. So many emotions and great storytelling! I loved everything about it. Also made me cry. It was such great writing and the plot was good, and I loved how we got some flashbacks from when Avery and Emmett were together also the downfall of their relationship. I really enjoyed that part.

I really can’t wait for Ford and Olivia’s story after how Ruthless King ended I really need the next book! It’s going to be so good!
