Relentless by Lauren Dane
Abbie Haws has been battling a system that has seen fifteen Families ruling the Federation Universes since the time the first settlers came through the portals from Earth. This is the perfect time to get rid of the old way of ruling and introducing a new order that would give voice to those that are unranked. Now Abbie has been granted an audience with Roman Lyons so she has a chance to make a difference.
Roman Lyons is the head of House Lyons. As everyone knows the Known Universe revolves around Ravena which in turns revolves around Roman. He was raised to lead from the very beginning. Now he must meet with a rabble-rouser which he dreads until the moment when he sets eyes on Abbie. Now the attraction between them has caught them both off guard.
Both Roman and Abbie have headstrong personalities and it makes for some very hot trysts between them in private as they also learn that they both can learn a lot from each other. They come from different ways of life and teaching each other about how the other one lives is making the attraction between them even stronger than it was in the beginning. But can this lead to anything more than a secret tryst between them or will they find a common ground that they can build a relationship on?
While this is technically the second book in the series it can be read as a stand alone book. The world building started in the first book, Undercover, and continues in this one and gives the reader a wider view of this new world in this series. The reader will get emotionally invested in the hero and heroine in this book and will hate to reach the last page of this one. The plot is well written and the story flows very well. The story also has enough spice to make it one very hot story. This one is well worth taking the time to read.
I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
