4.5 stars for - Ruthless King - book one in the Mount Trilogy by the insanely talented Meghan March. Lachlan Mount is your worst nightmare! He tends to make even the worst bad guys look like cowards if you cross him. He runs everything in New Orleans that makes money and he just informed Kiera Kilgore that she is indebted to him for half a million dollars... Kiera Kilgore recently took over her family business - owning and operating Seven Sinners Distillery. Forcing her father to finally retire and allow her to takeover was nothing short of a miracle so she knows she has to do whatever it takes to make the Distillery flourish. When she finds out about the loan to Mount of all people she is shocked, but knows if she runs she is putting not only her business on the line, but the welfare of her loved ones too. Lachlan Mount rules NOLA with an iron fist and takes no crap from anyone. Finding out Kiera Kilgore is the new owner of the Distillery makes things rather enticing when the loan comes due in the next seven days. Too bad she hasn't figured out that her feisty temper coupled with her gorgeous body make it even more appealing for me in the long run. This was unlike anything Ms. March has written previously as Mount is a total anti-hero but good lord is the man hot as sin! Now my only teeny tiny issue was Kiera constantly rethinking and/or regretting everything, but considering the circumstances I can understand why. Though once she finally gives into the need - Mount and Kiera together are totally combustible!!! I can't wait to read Defiant Queen and Sinful Empire :)

Well. That cliffhanger. Those last few twists. Ruthless King was even better than I expected and I already thought it was going to be amazing. I loved everything about Lachlan Mount and Keira Kilgore’s story so far and to think there is more!! The fact that there is so much more about Lachlan Mount that peeks out from that hard mask of his. He’s not a good guy. But he’s so sexy and burdened with this dark power. “Heavy is the head that wears the crown”—it’s clear that Mount has demons that give him no peace. And he wants Keira. And he will do anything to get her. And while she isn’t powerless exactly, it’s hard to fight someone like Mount. At least hard to fight him on everything. Especially when there are things he offers that she wants. Even if she hates to admit it. This relationship is tempestuous and hateful and passionate and there’s this thread—this sliver of want, of need, of being completely wrong and yet completely right for each other—that keeps them craving more. But can it work? Something or someone has to break. But who will break first? Because both Keira and Mount are strong and stubborn and determined to get their way. And their battle of wills is sexy as all get out. And I can’t wait to see what happens next. Defiant Queen can’t come soon enough! **Ruthless King will publish on October 17, 2017. I received an advance reader copy courtesy of Meghan march in exchange for my honest review.

OMG! This is another one of those “What was she thinking??” books. Who comes up with a hero/anti-hero like Mount?? Keira, I just don’t think you have a clue what you are up against...And how long am I going to have to wait to have the next one of these?? Lachlan Mount is the Lord Vader of New Orleans. You want to hate him, but you love him. You want to trust him, but you fear him. Only Keira Kilgore has captured his attention and she will never be the same. He will make her his but she may be destroyed in the process. She can’t help herself where he is concerned. This story just stuns me...I can’t wait to finish their story but I know I won’t ever want it to end. Also getting to catch up with Delilah from the Beneath series was pretty cool....But seriously...Why do I keep letting Meghan do this to me?
