The sizzling second novel in a sexy new contemporary romance series featuring the Lawless siblings—from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake.
Brandon Lawless is a man on a mission: obtain the information that will clear his father’s name. He’s willing to do whatever it takes—even seduce his enemy’s personal assistant, the beautiful and innocent Carly Hendricks. But with her beguiling smile and captivating intelligence, Brandon soon realizes he doesn’t want to deceive Carly, he wants to win her over—both in the boardroom and the bedroom.   Then a twisted crime leaves Carly vulnerable and Brandon finds himself reeling. The stakes of his mission are now life or death—Carly’s life. And Brandon realizes he’s lost his heart to an amazing woman and his plan must succeed, because the stakes are no longer just revenge, but a once in a lifetime love.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

I was very excited to read this book because Bran was a stood out to me in the first book, and I wanted to read his story so bad. And while I did like and enjoy this one, it wasn’t the same level of enjoyment as the first book.

Satisfaction started off slow, which I normally wouldn’t mind as long as it gives me character development and some plot development too. But sometimes, some of the scenes felt like filler to me. And it didn’t really help that this book also had to set up the next book in the series, which by the way I am totally looking forward to because hello, Drew seems like an asshole I would really like. But I digress.

This was took too much time setting up other story lines that it forgot about its main couple: Carly and Bran. I liked them but I found them a bit bland, especially Carly. She’s a nice enough heroine but her personality is a bit blah. Even when she was together with Bran. They have some chemistry but again, I feel like their relationship was an afterthought.

The best part about this book though was the climax where secrets are starting to come out. Man, the revelations in this book were mind blowing. I never even suspected that the story would go this way. It totally changed everything. It changed the whole game for the Lawless siblings. I cannot wait for the conclusion to this series.

Overall, Satisfaction felt more like a filler book. It’s a prelude to the grand finale.
