Ruthless from the very first paragraph grabs the reader and takes off running. Ruth Carver is a force to be reckoned with. She is a champion horse rider and works hard to stay on top. When we first meet her, she is in the back of a truck with no idea where she is or where the truck is going. The person driving we come to know as Wolfman is taking her up to his secluded cabin. He plans to teach her a lesson and intends to break her both physically and mentally to get his point across. She has met him before, he used to work at her parents barn until his creepy leering got to be a bit too much for her and she had her parents fire him. What is clear to Ruth is that she must do whatever she can to survive. She has to somehow get free and get out of there to civilization and find help.
This books breakneck pace was awesome! I was thoroughly creeped out by Ruth’s captor and my heart was in my throat for much of the novel. It made me glad I was safe at home in my bed reading this book. A word to the wise; however; this book is not for the faint of heart. There is violence and unsavory parts being that….well….a crime is being committed! So, if you don’t have the stomach or the guts for it don’t read it. If you are brave enough though I suggest definitely reading! You will not be sorry and I believe after finishing you will come away breathless! I give this book a solid 4 out of 5.
