The only thing he didn’t like about the man was this creeping feeling he had that he was losing Reese to him. But was he really losing her? Or was Rylan the key to winning her?
“There is nothing we won’t give you,” Sloan said softly. “Nothing you could want that we can’t deliver.”
Sloan-- Strong, silent, stoic. Sloan is the guy you want watching your back. He's loyal, fierce, will do what needs doing. And he denies himself so much! I loved seeing him finally finally get what he desired so very badly. Namely...Reese.
Rylan-- OMG I WANT TO LICK HIM!!!!! I just. Yep. I sure do. He's cheeky and charming and always up for something naughty and wicked. But he's also got layers and gah watching them all get ripped away was something. Plus.... pierced cock! Y'all know how I love me some decorated peen.
Reese-- She's a hard heroine. A warrior. A fighter. Total badass. Can come across a little cold and stubborn. But everything she is is put into protecting her people. Not an easy job but one she takes on. I did like seeing her evolve over the book and, not loosen up, but show some vulnerability.
"Use me tonight, Reese. Use me however you want. Fuck me however you want. Just... say... yes."
"Open your throat, sweetheart. Man wants to fuck your face. Let's see what he's got."
"The real kicker would be taking you at the same time. Can you imagine how tight you'd feel? How full? There'd be no room in your head for any kind of guilt or worry or concern. There'd only be me and Sloan and every goddamned sensation we could wring from your body."
"Look, you and I... we're a lot alike. I don't think either of us believes in love. We can care about someone. We can owe our loyalty to them, but we can't give them more than that."
I loved it! RULED is a scorching hot romantic suspense set in an apocalyptic world that kept me flipping the pages. It had not one, but two hot alpha heroes and a heroine I rooted for. The story took some twists and turns that surprised me. I couldn't choose between the two heroes and fell in love with them both. I just love this series. Elle Kennedy has a writing style that draws the reader into the story. Anytime I pick up one of her books I know I'm going to get swept up in a good story. RULED is part of Elle Kennedy's Outlaw Series, but it can be read as a standalone. It's set in apocalyptic world but I think romance readers that do not normally read this genre would still enjoy it. It's a great romance and I highly recommend it.

She could face it all, conquer it all, because she wouldn't have to do it alone. Sloan and Rylan would be there with her. Her right hand. Her left hand. The rock and the wind. Unshakable strength and soothing sunshine.
As long as the men she loved were by her side, she could handle anything the future decided to throw at her.
