Very good book, full of action from the very beginning. Kelsey loves her coffee shop and for a bonus the last two weeks there have been daily visits by Paxton Weeks, a definitely sexy guy who has been flirting with her. When two guys try to kidnap her it's Pax who comes to her rescue and then whisks her away to protect her from the people who are after her to get to her brother. I really liked Kelsey. She had a crappy family life thanks to her con man father and has been estranged from him and h ...more
One of the best things about Ruthless was how believable Kelsey was as the heroine. She's had a rough time and doesn't trust easily. She's smart and wary, and not one to let these alpha men steamroller her into doing what they want. Her actions under fire and stress are that of a tough, smart woman who's not accustomed to people trying to shoot her. She and Pax have an intense attraction that's been building for weeks, and the incredibly stressful situation they're now in has set the relationshi ...more
This is the second book in the Corcoran Team series from HelenKay Dimon and it was just as fun and fast paced as the first. With how this story opens and the novel progresses, I felt it could be read as a standalone because there wasn’t too much reference to the action in the first book. Kelsey has been serving coffee at her coffee shop every day and has loved it but things started looking up even more when Pax started coming by almost two weeks ago. There’s just something about this morning tha ...more
I received a first-reads copy of Ruthless through Goodreads. I had never read anything by this author, so I read the book while keeping an open mind. Ruthless was a quick read and I enjoyed it. The characters of Kelsey and Pax were like able and believable. She's in danger but doesn't know it. He's injured from a past undercover assignment and thinks guarding Kelsey will be an easy assignment. They are attracted to each other, but have to solve a mystery and avoid dangerous killers (while fallin ...more
I really like Dimons stories, she Is able to pack a lot into the stories. A lot of the stories that I have read in the Harlequin lines have felt incomplete, I think in part due to the shorter page length. However, Dimon's stories feel complete, that's not to say I wouldn't want to see more of the characters, but I can believe in their HEA, or at least feel that they are Happy For Now. I liked thatKelsey was strong and questioned things.she didn't immediately go along with Pax, she questioned his ...more

In Dimon’s romantic suspense novel, coffee shop owner Kelsey Moore was attracted to Paxton Weeks and looked forward to his daily visits. Unknown to Kelsey, Paxton’s daily visits were to protect her from potential harm. When two robbers hold Kelsey hostage, Paxton is there to save her even though he blows his cover to do it. Now that his secret is out in the open and Kelsey really is in danger, they will reluctantly team together to fight the danger head-on.

A strong addition to the Corcoran Team

After being injured, Paxton Weeks is recuperating while watching over Kelsey Moore, owner of a coffee shop. Kelsey is estranged from her family and doesn't realize bad guys are after her brother for stealing secrets. Paxton thwarts the bad guys and then is on the run with her, trying to keep her safe. Meanwhile the sparks flying between them could start World War III. Another hot read from HelenKay Dimon!

I thought it was a little slow but the characters were so interesting and played off each other so well, it was still a good read.

I like a lot of action in my books but action can't save a story if the characters are weak. On the other hand, strong characters with good interaction can save a story weak on action.

I won this book in the goodreads giveaway. Ruthless was like a movie in my head. I felt like I was there with Kelsey and Pax. This would be the first time reading an action type book. And thanks to HelenKay Simon I will defiantly read some more.
Ironically, the secondary characters really made this book work for me. I loved the comaderie between Pax, Joel and Connor. I also really liked that Kelsey was such a strong woman. The dialogue was fun, and there was plenty of action.

I won this book in a goodreads giveaway. Although it's not the most original plot it's still an enjoyable read. There's lots of action from the start. The characters are likeable.

Enjoying the Corcoran Team series. Characters Pax and Kelsey make the story. Some of the story stretches the boundaries of what is believable...but it is fiction. And an enjoyable read.
I really liked it, but there was definitely more suspense and mystery involved than the development of the romance.
