Louise does it again. Action packed, well written. Amazing twists. I loved every moment. If this is your first Louise Bay book PLEASE download the rest. You won’t be disappointed!!!!
Another smash hit for this author. I was hooked from the beginning. I absolutely loved this book and make up of it. The yacht idea was fabulous and the chemistry between Hayden and Avery was HOT. The moral dilemma they both faced and who to believe. Definitely recommend this book
Fantastic read couldn’t put it down
It’s basically your must read of 2018
By Jo Swinney
What can I say that hasn’t already been said? It’s basically your must read of 2018. Louise Bay never fails to draw readers into her stories of love, power and sexy encounters that thrill the knickers off of us.
The Ruthless Gentleman AKA Hayden Wolf. Jesus, I wanted to board that man, I mean Yacht and spend my days seeing to all his needs. I know, I know never going to happen, but a girl can dream.
Hayden had to get away it was at the insistence of his ex-military brother. Hayden’s brother was very clear on what instructions had to be carried out. At first I thought WOW! This guy is a little over the top, but he didn’t make up the rule, well not in this case. Every other time Hayden is a man in control. He speaks, he gets it’s that simply. But with a spy in his corporation he’s willing to do what it takes to flush him or her out.
Avery is a very motivated young woman, she lives, breaths and works extremely hard to help out back home. Both her brother and Father who would not wish for his daughter to work herself into the ground, rely on Avery. She wants her brother to able to live a better life, and for her father to get the help he needs. Don’t even bother asking me about the Mother. She doesn’t even deserve that title.
Avery has always remained professional while working. She expects the highest quality of care given to each of her guests. To say she is passionate is an understatement. Maybe it’s not hat she wanted for her life, but she’s doing it and doing it right.
Hayden is obviously attracted to Avery, but with so much going on it’s hard for him to commit to anything. Plus he strangely doesn’t want to get Avery into trouble. Yep, Hayden is falling for the pretty, smart and hard working Stewardess.
Avery is finding each day harder to not think about Hayden. He is after all a sexy Gentleman with fire in his belly. It’s not titled The Ruthless Gentleman for nothing.
What will happen to Avery’s brother? Will Hayden’s brother uncover the spy?
Will Hayden and Avery end up together? Many questions you will most definitely want the answers to.
Epic read! Loved it!
This book, like every other book written by Louise was amazing—I loved everything, loved the chemistry between Hayden & Avery, All the effing feels with this book. Yet another epic read Louise, LOVED it! ❤️❤️
Sweet and Sexy
This was such a great book. A contemporary romance at its best. I loved spending time yachting with these characters, they’re so likeable. Louise Bay’s writing is always so fun and engaging. I love spending time in her world. This world is no different. I especially loved the background themes with this book - the guilt Avery carried over Michael and his health concerns. Then the thread of suspense with the kind of ‘whodunnit?’ Running throughout the story really gave this book that little something extra.
Louise Bay writes some wonderful book boyfriends and Hayden Wolf can be added to the list, sure I had my doubts at times, in fact, he drove me half insane, but, he redeemed himself. It did take me a while to warm up to him, I thought he was a bit of a jerk to be honest, but, once he got over that little bump he really was the sweetest thing. Avery was such an awesome character, I loved her, she was feisty and independent. The way she cared for and was loyal to her beliefs and her family - it made her so likeable. She’s someone you can imagine being friends with, you know, the friend you need to protect so that others don’t take advantage of her kindness. She was just the sweetest. I loved Landon and I vote for his story next. Closely followed by Michael, Skylar, and August. Ooooh, maybe that’s just two book plans right there?!?!?!
I loved the progression of their relationship. It started out as an attraction and quickly grew into something more. The build-up really made this story special, experiencing the chemistry between these characters and them slowly coming to grips with how they felt and the result of acting on them. It was just perfect. Louise Bay is the queen of sexy times, she writes it so well and it always fits with the story and never feels rushed.
I’d score it 6 stars if I could!
Background on me: I’ve gotten really strict with my sleep patterns lately, no staying awake passed 12:30. But Ruthless Gentleman had me breaking that rule, completely absorbing me in their world, staying up late with the ‘just one more chapter’ mantra on repeat in my head for 3 hours. No joke. Once I started reading I just couldn’t stop!
Hayden Wolf is everything I want from a book boyfriend really. Intense, sexy, alpha but with a depth and vulnerability that’s breathtaking, a strong moral code and a thoughtfulness that surprised and intrigued me.
And Avery is one of the most beautiful heroine’s ever, she’s selfless, kind, generous, loyal, but with a fiery attitude that instantly made me adore her, and be incredibly invested in her journey.
If you’re a die hard Louise Bay fan you’ll know that she never fails to deliver super sexy, smutty contemporary romances but with thought provoking, unique, and heartfelt storylines, and characters so well developed you feel as if you really know them. And Ruthless Gentleman most definitely lives up to her well earned reputation. Whilst reading Ruthless Gentleman nothing existed but the words on my kindle, the characters and story came to life so strongly that I could almost smell the salty sea air and feel the Mediterranean sun on my skin (and not even because we had a freakishly sunny weekend here in England).
Ruthless Gentleman embodies everything that makes for a perfect summer read, it’s the kind of book that if you were to read it on a beach somewhere hot, cocktail in hand, you’d feel as if you’d reached a new level of perfection in your life. It’s that good. I’m now desperately craving a European beach holiday! Anyone want to take that trip to Sicily with me?
Love conquers all
Wow another great book by louise.....the way she writes makes you fall deeper with each book you read....Hayden and avery are off limits to each other...:Hayden has a deal to get and Avery needs to be professional but they can’t seem to stay away from each other thanks louise for another great story if not my favourite so far xx
Louise’s best book yet!
What happens when two people who’s lives are so very different, yet so very similar meet in the most unexpected way? Will everything be plain sailing, or will it become a ruthless battle of wills?
Avery Walker is the epitome of professional. As head server upon luxury yacht charters around the world, she is on point at all times, tending to the guests every want and need, sometimes before they even realise they need it. She has never ever been anything less than perfect at her job, she has too much at stake to ever take any risks.
Hayden Wolf was at the top of his game, the most successful, well respected venture capitalist around, until his reputation slips after losing out on some important deals. Frustrated, he concocts a plan and boards a luxury yacht for 8 weeks to allow him to land the deal of all deals that will save his reputation and career.
Neither Avery or Hayden are prepared for the sparks that fly between them on board the Athena, and try as they might to dull the flames of desire burning between them, the fireworks eventually erupt. As they embark on this exciting journey, will they be able to stay afloat, bathing in the warmth of their feelings? Or will they crash against the choppy waters, hearts sinking into the depths of the sea?
The Ruthless Gentleman is different. It’s unique. It takes Louise’s amazing talents to a whole new level!
Yes this is a romance, yes he’s a billionaire, but that’s where it’s similarities end. Avery and Hayden are the most complex characters Louise had ever written. They are complicated, honest and strong. Individually they both have a very professional, dedicated and firm manner about them. But when they come together, WOW!! Together, they shine brightly with passion, vulnerability and love. They bring out a softness in each other that singularly isn’t necessary visible. They both have a complexity about them which draws them to each other. The adoration they have for one another completely captured my heart and had me rooting for them instantly.
This isn’t an easy love story, there are many obstacles they have to face, trust being a massive one. Louise writes their story so powerfully, having very realistic elements within it that allow you to resonate with and relate to them. All the characters play very important parts in this story, so you are able to build up a very real picture in your head of how these peoples lives actually are!
My love of Louise’s words only ever grows with every book I read, it never falters. Her books NEVER let me down and always exceed my high expectations every single time. Would give this book a 10/10 hands down, in goodreads terms, a MASSIVE 5 🌟
