    And as expected, Louise Bay did it again!

    Very "Louise-Bay-y", she could bring two whole different characters, with different backgrounds and expectations and put them together in such a beautiful way! Hayden is used to the best, to the finest, to winning (although, he's been facing a bad year). He knows what he wants, he gets what he wants, he doesn't apologize for that. He is, well, Ruthless, as the title suggest. But he is also sweet and charming when you least expect. He can make you feel good by beng who you are, even if his life is so different than yours. Even if his life is so different than Avery's. It's funny, because so far I wrote about how different they are. Avery's life is not luxurious (even though her job might be). She struggles, she feels fear, she is tired for fighting so hard for her family (not because she "said enough", she is too loyal for that, but because life wasn't gentle). But at the same time they have such different lives, they have a lot in common. They are hard workers, they fight for what they want and need, they are strong and resilient. They are completely different in a very similar way...or they are completely the same in a very different way....you get my point. And the chemistry? Man, oh, man! They are hot, sexy and sweet together. They are burning and enveloping. It was addictive seeing them together!! And one thing I lvoed about this book - actually, ONE of the things I loved about this book, is about Avery's family. I love that about romance books, and lately I'e been seeing more of that and I think it's so beautiful. I even wrote something about in another reeview. Romance books now are more relatable. They are more real. The struggles, and battles, and problems aren't the pretty type. They are scary, life altering, realistic! Avery's brother is a proof of that. Life isn't always pretty, even when she brings beautiful things. And this book proved that. Life is messy, is surprising sometimes in a good way, sometimes in a bad way. Life doesn't wait for you to come around. Life is that hard. Life is that cruel. Life is that beautiful. Just like this book was.

    Perfect Sailing!

    I can honestly say I've never read a storyline based on a super yacht. Let me just say if there was one author that could pull off this story, make it exotic, super spicy, but also have so much depth, it's definitely this author. I can't say there was any part of this story that I didn't like. I fell into this story and didn't want it to end. Hayden was the epitome of what any gentleman should be. Forget the fact he was super rich, because he did not act like it at all. He showed class and understanding throughout the story. Avery was also so much more than just working class stewardess. There is a reason she chose this profession to earn money quickly and you'll have to read the story to find out how caring and dedicated she is. Watching Hayden and Avery navigate the yacht and their circumstances, while under so much stress due to their own situations and their attraction to one another just adds more fuel to the fire that is this couple. It was like sitting in a theater, eating popcorn so slowly because your totally immersed in the story going on in front of you. I kept waiting for the time they finally crossed the line, wondering how and when it would happen. There's a mystery going on through the story as well, which is why Hayden ended up on the yacht to begin with. This is romance and writing at it's best. It should be savored, however, you'll be so immersed in the story it'll end before you want it too. The Ruthless Gentleman, Hayden and Avery, is a total hit, in my book anyway.

    Sail into the sunset with Hayden Wolf? YES PLEASE!

    Louise Bay is an author whose books you can't go wrong with. She just nails it each and every single time. I love her, and I LOVE this!! Avery Walker NEVER mixes business with pleasure. She's a highly professional chief stewardess on the luxury superyachts. She’s respected by all she works with and never puts a foot wrong. Working for the rich and famous doesn't phase her at all – until, that is, Hayden Wolf steps aboard! Hayden is a man any woman would lust after. He's drop dead gorgeous, sexy as hell, extremely charming, and down to earth. He's also a man who's used to getting what he wants. Avery doesn't stand a chance! (Lucky girl, lol!!) Oh - do I need to mention that the chemistry between Avery and Hayden is sizzling HOT??!! Of course I don't! *sighs deeply* You're definitely in for a treat with this book. It will consume you. Louise’s words just immerse you into Avery and Hayden's world. I didn't want it to end. Bon voyage guys, and happy reading - it's an absolute cracker! The Ruthless Gentleman sails through with 5 huge shiny gold stars!

    Another one knocked out of the park

    She has done it again. Louise leaves you wanting more when the book is finished. Her books flow smoothly. If you want a good book to read and have never tried Louise's book, this is the book to pick up. This book is about opposite lifestyles being attracted to each other. They are both driven in their worlds. Our female character's name is Avery. She is the chief stewardess for luxury cruises. She is just getting off a season and is ready to head home to California. She did not dream of having this job but it helps pay for her brother's physical therapy. She planned on going to college. She is offered this great chance to make more money than she usually does but it means she doesn't get her break between seasons. Our male character's name is Hayden. He owns his own company. The deals he has made in past year has been getting ruined by another company. He has a mole somewhere and he needs to figure it out quickly before he loses his best client. He goes on a luxury yacht for 8 weeks. They try to fight the attraction from the start. He does things to show her that he is a different person then he is letting on but she does the opposite of what he wants. They finally let the attraction lead them into something but something bad happen. Avery is blamed for something that she didn't do. Does Hayden realize that he made a mistake in not trusting her and the person he came to know? Or does the issue come between them? Read the book to find out more.

    I Love this Story!

    I love this book. I love the story of Avery and Hayden Wolf (I love his name!). The chemistry between them is strong and hot! This story is all about trust and love. The storyline is well written, intriguing and captivating. I love the epilogue. This book is a page turner! A book written by Louise Bay is always a good value. I can't wait to listen to the audiobook!
