She slingshotted her way into my heart.
I’m a laid back kind of guy.
I don’t like to take life too seriously.
I’ve experienced serious and I’ve gone through the bad life has to offer.
I’m ready for the good in life.
I wear my heart on my sleeve just so someone can take it.
And someone does…
Out of all the people for me to love, why does it have to be her?
The frenemy’s daughter.
I’m risking my life to be with her.
But if life isn’t about taking risks, then what the hell else are we supposed to do?
Love with her isn’t simple.
And that’s not the worst of it.
Her Uncle Maximo poses a threat along with someone who I thought was long gone out of my life.
Protecting the ones I love means I could die.
Death doesn’t scare me. I’ve come close one too many times to be afraid of it.
I face it head on.
And if I do, heaven better have tacos.

“Knives points to Benji. “We like you. What’s your name? What do you do? What’s your future like?”
“Knives, leave him alone.” Skirt groans. “He’s just a wee one.”
“He isn’t just ‘a wee one.’ He held his own. Who are you?” Knives asks, not sticking out his hand but running that damn ninja star across his knuckles like always.
“Benji,” my friend says. “Natalia, I’m so sorry about your eye. I shouldn’t have started anything. I didn’t like how he talked about you ladies.”
“No, you did good, kid,” Knives says. “You want something bigger, badder, and a bit messier, come prospect. We’re always looking for new blood.”
Benji rubs his jaw and nods. “Yeah, alright. Anything is better than going to the NFL to follow dad’s footsteps.”
Knives tosses his head back and laughs. “Ah, kid. You have no idea how many of us have fucking daddy issues.”
Slingshot comes outside, and he marches to me with powerful strides. The sun glints against his leather cut and his blue eyes; god, they hypnotize me. I don’t think he knows the power he exudes because he’s always holding it in. Without stopping, he wraps his hand around the back of my neck and bends me, dipping me over his knee as he kisses me, stealing my breath as his own.
A few catcalls sound out, and he pulls me up quickly, too quickly for me to piece together a single thought as his thumb brushes over my lips. “You didn’t go back to your seat. Good girls listen, don’t they?”
I nod and rub my thighs together when my clit begins to throb.
“Make it up to me by going out with me, right now.”
“Now? Right now?” I look around at my group of friends, and they’re all nodding.
“She’d love to go out.” Nora’s hand presses against my back, and she pushes me toward Slingshot.
“Well, there’s a bonfire tonight at the house,” Benji suggests. “If you want to come.”
“How about we meet you there? I want to change into something…better.”
Slingshot brings his soft lips to my ears. “Are you trying to tease me, Good Girl?”
“Make sure you don’t wear panties, then. Text me the address.” He gives my behind a good squeeze as he leaves but then backtracks. “And be good while I’m gone, Natalia. You don’t want to know what happens when you misbehave.”
Oh, I do. I really do.
With hearts in my eyes and liquid heat between my thighs, I watch him mount his bike, which only leads me to think of all the ways he can mount me. The bikes grumble to life. The rumbles are deafening and shake the beverages on the table: the ice clinks together—the silverware trembles against the white tablecloth.
Slingshot does something I don’t expect him to do and reminds me how soft and tender his heart is.
He blows me a kiss in front of everyone without caring what others will think.
My knees are weak, and my brain is a complete fog as he pulls away.
“Oh my god, girl. You are so screwed,” Faye cheers before downing her drink.
“Nah, she’s about to be screwed. Right into a mattress!” Cora hollers and thrusts her hips into the air.
And then they begin to sing that damn song in The Sweetest Thing, and even Benji is cracking up laughing, but that’s not what makes it so bad.
Other people join in.
And I’ve never heard the word penis so much in my life.
I never want to watch that movie again.
Also, my friends need to come with a warning label. Society is never ready. I’m never ready.

Oh be still my beating heart. For such a dark series this was just the best. A man that just wants to be loved for himself, and a woman who wants the freedom to choose her own path!
Slingshot (Noah) had a pretty average childhood, well aside from the bullying kids and the foster carers he was put with! Mason was an older kid that looked out for him, he was his brother, not my blood but by circumstances. He died protecting him after a bullying incident went wrong! But Mason was still looking out for him, he sent him to the Ruthless Kings, they took him in and he grew up with Reaper. But lately as his brothers from the club have found their old ladies, Slingshot wants that for himself, but the woman he wants he knows he can’t have!!!!
Natalia daughter to Matteo Moretti (he has his own book and spin off book) protected and cosseted her whole life. She wants for nothing. But meeting Slingshot has given her a need that only he can give her. But her father isn’t having any of that! He wants his daughter to have the life she deserves and that’s not being an old lady to a biker!
They are both aware of one another (she was kidnapped in a previous story and the RK rescued her) it was practically love at first sight. But how can he give her the rich life that her father can give her?
Catching up with other couples is always a pleasure with these books, poor Poodle is having a bad time with the illness of his dog. The President and his wife are having a difficult time with her pregnancy, and we have a diabetic biker not caring for himself! All these stories are still evolving, so if your going to read the book, I do advise to read in order, the storylines make more sense. We also get to meet her best friend and stepmother (again Matteo and Nora have their story) both have her back and try to run interference for the couple.
And possibly a new prospect in the form of Benji (friend of Natalia) he shows his true colours when a fight in a coffee shop gets out of hand and poor Natalia gets caught in the middle!
New romance ? Badge and a certain kings daughter 😉 can’t wait for those fireworks to go off!
A Dom/Sub relationship between the two main characters is both interesting and hot. Natalia knows what she wants and slingshot is more than happy to give that to her. It’s not a full Dom/sub book, there are spankings and a little rough play, but it’s more of a gentle introduction rather than scenes and full bondage.
I did have to chuckle at Mattel’s reaction to slingshot and Natalia’s relationship. It’s bad enough catching your daughter sleeping with a guy, but his answer is to shoot him! Slingshot is the joker of the pack, he also isn’t first in line to torture and kill. But this book brings that side out of him. We also get to see the softer side of this biker. And his love of tacos is upfront and center stage, and the van he buys and converts into a taco truck did make me smile.
Recommend? Yes I would. There is plenty to keep you occupied in this book. There is betrayal and secrets. There is kidnappings and murder. So just another day in the lives of the Ruthless Kings.
K.L. Savage decided they were tired of looking for the kind of books they wanted to read. They had an itch that needed to be scratched, and as every girl knows, nothing scratches better than an alpha.
They write about gritty, alpha males, sometimes their dark sides, and the women they love.
If you have the same itch, their alpha males should fix that.
