Mary-Anne Lukin has never had it easy. Having survived the torments of abuse for far too long, it’s a miracle that life somehow managed to leave her with a little bit of hope—hope of a future filled with happiness.
Max “MadDog” Duhart has lived more than one lifetime, earning the respect he’s due as the president of the Original Charter of Notorious Devils. Nevertheless, with life still yet to live, he wants more than the regret that’s tarnished his past.
Their connection is instant, though they know they shouldn’t act on it—not with more than thirty years between them. Not with their families tied together by the club’s brotherhood.
Yet, there’s something about the sweet, broken woman that whispers of a fresh start for an old man. And while he may be rough and ruthless, she cannot deny the way she feels when she looks into his haunted blue eyes.
One phone call. One cry for help. One motorcycle ride, and life as they know it is never the same.
Rough and Ruthless was a great 5 star read.
This is the 4th book in the Notorious Devils MC.
Mary-Anne thought she had finally found love after her painful childhood. He was great up until he met her brother. After that he became abusive and cruel along with wanting to use her to make his business clients happy. Scared and wanting out, Mary-Anne calls Max the Notorious Devils president for help.
I call the only man I know who will make Kyle shit his pants and rescue me all at the same time.
When Max gets the call from Mary-Anne he goes to get her. He didn’t expect the connection that they would have and his extreme need to claim her.
These two eventually give into their attraction and all I can say is wow. The hot sex these two have is panty melting. Of course things are not simple for these two right from the start. Max has never felt this way about a woman not even his first wife, could Mary be the one?
Mary struggles with insecurities, especially when she overhears the club whores and Max refuses to believe her.
I’m a liar who doesn’t have a place anywhere other than on your cock. – Mary
There is so much that goes on in this great read. Rough and Ruthless couldn’t have been a more perfect title for Mary and Max’s story. Just when you think things are complete we get another twist of some sort. And when someone from Mary’s past appears, I had a near heart attack and was in tears with the things that transpired. All of the secondary characters were great, I loved seeing the Old ladies and the MC men from the first three books. Max was a true MC president, he didn’t hesitate to put Mary in her place when necessary but yet loved her with all his heart. I really love these two and the epilogue was great. Love conquers all and age is just a number. Hayley has once again drawn me into her MC world and I couldn’t put it down until I was done. I look forward to reading Rough & Ready.
