l just say a few things here; hopefully ill circle back and leave a proper review, but for now... I'm pleasantly surprised with this series. This being the third of the "Ruthless..." books, and so far my favorite. When looking through this authors catalogue, trying to decide which book to pick up, this one had actually been the book I was going to start with as they 'can' be read as standalone's, but it was after I'd caught a comment in one of its reviews that mentioned how the H of this book, Ghost, had been a character brought in at the end of the book prior to this, and that story had set up the plot for this one... I'd been intrigued enough to put this down and pick up the first book,( with each being relatively short in length) , there was really no reason not to read them in order. And I'm glad I did! While yes they can be read alone, and you won't even notice, I discovered that with each book, even with there being the barest of mention as to who would be the main character in the next story of the series, I can say with certainty that my enjoyment of these books definitely had been raised a level because of the way they'd been interconnect leading one into the other at the end, even if only to a subtle degree. In short, I definitely recommend this book, but if you like one, you'll like them all so I urge you to start at book one, you'll be glad! I know if I'd read the out of order, they'd be fine, but I definitely wouldn't have gotten the same enjoyment level had I read this first etc.
So yes, Ruthless Assassin gets two thumbs up as def. recommended read! But why not start with Ruthless Bodyguard, then Ruthless Biker, to this book and so on?!? 👍 You won't regret it! 😉 ☺

Ruthless Assassin is the third book in the Ruthless series and is about Harper Young and Elias "Ghost" Chance. Harper is twenty-four and works as a freelance newspaper journalist and editor. But she has a ruthless side because of her younger sister being kidnapped at fifteen but no ransom was demanded. Instead she was trafficked into the sex trade for several months. She was "lucky" as she was one of the young women that was saved by the Ruthless Bastards MC, that story is in the previous book. But now she has no light and instead sits in her room with a vacant stare. Harper has never wanted vengeance on anyone before but now she wants it and more against Robert Patrick. So she has come up with a bit of a plan on how to get close to him and then put a bullet between his eyes. No one knows Ghosts real name or what he really does or who he does it for. People assume it is the CIA because of the amount and type of information he is able to obtain. But he actually works for a private organization that helps take down, and out, really bad people. King from the Ruthless Bastards MC had called in a favor a few months ago, again in the previous book, and he was more than willing to help in every way he could. That operation put one Robert Patrick on his radar an then in his cross-hairs. He wants to not only kill the scum but also dismantle his "business" and then move on to others that do business with him. Ghost spots Harper walking outside of Robert's house and she immediately awakens a part of him that is deep inside. He is not only instantly attracted to her but he is also starting to feel protect towards her. So he warns her off doing something foolish and that Robert is a very dangerous man. Harper may leave but she is not deterred. Before you know it they are cross paths again that night which leads to them becoming "partners" as such in getting vengeance against Robert. Along the way Ghost finds that he wants to open up to Harper and tell her about himself. This also makes him even more protective of her. He likes and admires that Harper is not going to be warned off and she is willing to go to the lengths required to see that her enemy is taken down and also that other girls are saved.
I enjoyed this next story in the loosely tied series. Ghost was a real enigma in the Ruthless Biker and I am glad that his story was told in Ruthless Assassin. I loved Harper as she was a woman on a mission and there was no roadblock, hurdle, warning or kidnapping that was going to deter her to achieve her goal. She was a good match to Ghost and by the end you have to question just who the Ruthless Assassin actually is. My only issue is that the book could use another visit to the proofreader as there were a number of easily spotted errors. But aside from that this is a great story with wonderful characters.

Ghost and Harper meet up outside the house of Robert Patrick. They both know he is the ring leader of kidnapping and trafficking young innocent girls and selling them into the sex slave industry. Ghost had already had a run in with a Russian group of traffickers involved with Robert Patrick and had taken that ring down and returned the young women to their families. Ghost is in the midst of tracking down to tear apart Robert Patrick’s operation and end it for ever, when he discovers a beautiful woman Harper stalking some of Patrick’s properties. He try’s to warn her away from the danger she is placing herself in but she doesn’t listen she is bound and determined to kill Robert Patrick herself. Her younger sister was one of his victims and she vows to not give up the chase until he is dead by her hand. Her revenge for her sister. From the moment her and Ghost meet the chemistry starts heating up. They start figuring out a way they can bring Patrick’s operation to its knees and snuff it out together. They discover they make an amazing team and that’s not all they discover while working together. Will the two be able to set aside their feelings and desires for each other long enough to have success? Will Harper be able to pull that trigger and shoot Robert Patrick right between the eyes like she has vowed to do ever since her broken sister was returned to her family? Will Harper and Ghost be good enough just the two of them to get past his team of body guards and get close enough to him to make it happen? Very good story. One of my favorite authors. Love the writing style it flows along no ends left untied. My favorite genre. A wonderful addition to my collection. A must read. I received an Advance Reader's Copy and am voluntarily leaving my honest thoughts and opinions.

Ghost is a paid assassin and Harper is out for revenge for her sister and determined to kill the same man Ghost is there for. This is a fast paced, action packed read about two people out to kill the same man and end out falling for each other. This is a quick read but it is packed with drama, revenge, danger, steam and a great ending. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

Ruthless Assassin is full of surprises. There are twist and turns and every once things goes sideways. Ruthless Assassin is the 3rd book in the Ruthless series. It tells the story of what happened after Ghost helped King get the women that were being groomed to be trafficked. Ghost had every intention of making sure the operation was stopped as he told King. One of the girls that were rescued was Harper’s sister and she wanted revenge for what was done to her sister and the impact it had on her and her family. While Ghost/Elias was doing recon he saw Harper and tried to get her to leave but she didn’t want to stop till she got her revenge. Ghost/Elias decided that it was safer if he teamed up with Harper than let her try alone and possible get taken or killed. The rest of the story you will have to read to find out what happened. If you like suspense and lots of action all rolled into one then Ruthless Assassin is for you. Not only does Ruthless Assassin have lots of suspense, surprises, and things coming out of left field but the sex scenes are intense and 🔥🔥💥💥. You won’t want to miss out. Hope you will enjoy this book as much as I do.

Loved this story. I am so glad that Ghost and Harper decided to pull together. Harper is on a revenge job but for Ghost it's for the girls he helped save. Plenty of action, adventure, drama, little steam, revenge. Harper had to get the revenge for her sister that had been rescued from the fight club sex ring. Harper's sister is emotionally destroyed and Harper and Ghost were going to make sure Robert Patrick and his business was destroyed. I loved how this ended with Harper letting Patrick know who she was and why she was there. Great ending. He got what he deserved. The relationship between Ghost and Harper was combustible. They were just getting started with their HEA> I received a copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This was a fantastic great. For such a short book it certainly packed a lot of action. Elias/Ghost and Harper really were perfect for each other this book is funny. They both had a great sense of humor and they got the job done or rather Harper did.
