Author Elle Kennedy takes us back into her apocalyptic
world that pits outlaws against the council, who have RULED
the people with an iron hand for too long. Reese was part
of that world, until her mother's death and her own escape.
She has tried to build a city, a safe haven for those who
want to live free.
Reese has a problem, a past relationship that had gone
terribly wrong and ended in tragedy, she doesn't want to
deal with relationships again. Rylan is set on having Reese
but just can't get the job done. He also finds he must win
over Sloan, the man who stands by her side as she deals
with outlaws and enforcers alike. Sloan would do anything
for Reese, having loved her forever ... even step aside if
necessary, but he will never break his promises to her. Is
it possible that with Rylan's help they can both give Reese
what she needs to continue to survive in the dark,
RULED will not let you go as it holds you in its grip with
action, tension and ... yes ... hope. I have read a number
of books by author Elle Kennedy and this series The
Outlaw Series has got to be the most exhilarating
ride any writer can
can send a reader on. I liked getting to know Reese who has
been a mystery woman in a number of books in this series.
For as tough as she has had to be there is a vulnerability
that only the two men who love her can see. As for the men
Sloan was an intriguing mystery man and Rylan we have met
before, but this was both men's time to shine.
I will warn readers now that this book is highly sexual, as
is the whole series, and does have quite a bit of M/M and
M/M/F situations. If this bothers you then RULED might not
be a book you will enjoy. Aside from these situation this
book is also filled with action; the fight for survival and
revenge; touches of humor, and even hits of the good things
that come about despite the harshness of life; a young girl
starts to blossom out of her traumatic past and a baby is
welcome into the world. I can't wait to see where Ms.
Kennedy takes us next as the end has an intriguingly,
In the latest novel in the series with the “sexiest,
baddest, hottest”* outlaws around, one woman must choose
between the two men who want to claim her...
...Or does she?
Despite his magnetic personality, Rylan can’t seem to
seduce Reese, the deadly leader of their town of outlaws.
Winning her over is a welcome challenge, but her
indifference isn’t the only thing standing in his way. If
he wants Reese, Rylan must also win over Sloan, her stoic
Sloan has always loved Reese, but their painful past has
stolen his chances of a future with her. Rylan’s interest
in Reese only intensifies the tension—until Sloan begins
to wonder if the reckless man might be the one person who
can bridge the distance...
The last time Reese fell for the wrong man, she had no
choice but to kill him. Now, she desperately wants to
take what both Rylan and Sloan are offering. But if she
makes the wrong call again, she risks losing them both.
