Publisher's Summary

When he decided he wanted me, he took me.

Treating a mobster shot by a rival’s goons isn’t really my forte, but when a man is powerful enough to have a whole wing of a hospital cleared out for his protection, you do as you’re told.

To make matters worse, this isn’t first time I’ve met Giovanni Calduchi. It turns out my newest patient is the stern, sexy brute who all but dragged me back to his hotel room a couple of nights ago so he could use my body as he pleased, then showed up at my house the next day, stripped me bare, and spanked me until I was begging him to take me even more roughly and shamefully.

Now, with his enemies likely to be coming after me in order to get to him, all I can do is hope he’s as good at keeping me safe as he is at keeping me blushing, sore, and thoroughly satisfied.

Ruthless

I usually enjoy Piper Stone’s books but I had a really difficult time getting into this one. I have tried three times with no success. At a later date, I will listen to this book again and update the review. Thomas Locklear did a great job with the narration. I received this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

dark intense

Whenever Piper Stone writes a mafia story she doesn't disappoint. This is dark, steamy and has plenty of action. And Add Thomas Locklear as the narrator you are ready for a great listen. Love his commanding voice. I was gifted this audio and offered my honest review.

Mafia Alpha!

This was a interesting Mafia story. It is full of alpha goodness. It does have elements of BDSM and steam. The action in the story keeps you wondering what is going to happen next. There is other books with some side characters mentioned in this one also. Thomas Locklear does a great job.

I was sucked in...

Once this story took off, I was completely drawn in and listened through for hours. Time flew by. If you like dark mafia romance, you’ll like this one. The female lead is strong and smart, a capable foil for the alpha make lead. Great narration moves this story along nicely.

Outstanding!

WOW! Hold on to your pants! This is an adventure that you won’t forget. If you like BDSN, mob boss, and a story with heat, this one has it all. Thomas Locklear was a fantastic narrator on this one. His voice will keep you listening to the last word and wanting more.

Giovanni Calduchi

Piper Stone does it again!! An I’m STILL drooling over Thomas Locklear’s voice!!!

More steamy sex scenes, strife, betrayal and retribution! Can Giovanni over come his demons? Listen to find out, if you dare!
If sexual scenes and Dom/Sub relationships are not your “thang” - this book is not for you!

Dark & Emotional

Ruthless is a well-composed compelling mafia romance. The storyline is engaging, dark, raw, twisted, and at times sweet. I love it!! I was captivated me from start to the very end. Piper Stone is an exceptional author for the genre and not hesitant to shock her readers/listeners. The characters are complex, intriguing, and very well-developed. The intimate scenes are sensual, scorching hot, and heavy on the BDSM components.

Outstanding narration by Thomas Locklear. He captured the character's emotions, their fiery chemistry, and the intensities in the scenes, bringing the entire book to life.

I strongly recommend "Ruthless" to all dark romance readers or listeners. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Gio's story

Thomas does an excellent job bringing Piper's characters to life in this sexy Mafia Romance following the same timeline as 'Caught'.

The story follows Giovanni, Jagger's older brother and heir apparent to the Calduchi empire. As he struggles with the aftermath of his father's assassination and the spitfire Doctor he is determined to both protect and own.
