An explosive new novel of love, lies, and obsession from bestselling author J.T. Geissinger.

Five years ago, my fiancé disappeared. He left me with a wedding dress I’d never wear. Left me with the kind of scars that can’t be healed. The man I built my future on vanished like a ghost. All that remained were my broken heart and unanswered questions.
Until a mysterious stranger arrives in town.
Tall, dark, and dangerous, Kage is as full of secrets as he is sex appeal. Though I know he’s hiding something, I’m drawn to him like a moth to flame.
The intensity of our connection is addictive, unlike anything I’ve ever felt before. Heat crackles between us with every look, desire flares into passion, and I fall hard, unable to resist.
But when I discover how he’s tied to the darkness in my past, I learn what happens when you fly recklessly into fire:
You get burned.

This review may contain spoilers, so fair warning, upon reading the review.

Ruthless Creatures was such an amazing read, there is something different about this author of late and I am loving seeing her delve into some darker elements in her books and I am loving them even more with these darker elements that she is introducing into her stories. Ruthless Creatures is a very obvious mafia romance. I will mention that this review is going to be WAY shorter than the norm. I read this over six months ago and I don’t remember too many details. I had thought I had written a review for it but apparently, I haven’t. So this is going to be brief but I did want to share some of my thoughts on this one and why I loved it so much here. This is a story that I couldn’t put down like literally, I am being serious. I was addicted to this book and saw how this romance would turn out because it’s a forbidden romance with a mix of enemies to lovers. The hero is literally sent to find the heroine’s ex-fiancee who disappeared but there are secrets that she isn’t aware of. I really loved the way that this author penned this book and the unique intrigue/mystery elements that brought something different to this story. I adored seeing this couple find their way to their HEA that was a battle considering how forbidden it was, and when you read this one you will see why a match between them is so forbidden and untouchable. Overall I had a blast with this one here and I delighted in every moment that this author delivers here.

    You’re right, I’ve not seen her write a dark romance before. Glad it was so addictive. I haven’t read a mafia romance in eons.

      Yes she has starting writing more dark romance, she never used to haha BUT they are her best books in my opinion.
