BookAddict  ✒ La Crimson Femme
When Milla decides to crash and burn, she does it in a spectacular fashion. Book two in this series is a non-stop roller coaster ride as Milla confuses her husband, Lex, to no end. This book can be read as a standalone but is better read in the correct order. Rule Breaker, the first in the book is a fantastic read.

This book is an erotic experience in frustration. Or is it blue balls? Milla is trying to recover from a trauma and instead of staying with her hidden husband, she isolates herself wit

This was a highly sexy and addicting second installment in the Rules of Engagement series. Lex and Milla were absolutely amazing. They were absolutely perfect together.

While this novel is a standalone I would highly recommend that you read book 1 (the Rule Maker) as this story deals with the after effects and culmination of book 1. While Milla deals with the painful aftermath of her past, her dedicated husband of ten years Lex has to reclaim his wife and prove to her that they belong to each ot

I enjoyed this book. I like that it started with them as married, and for a while. I think this was probably revealed in the first book, as it seemed to be a badly kept secret, although I was new to their relationship as I did not read the first one.

At times, I think I was missing a little because I picked this one up without reading the beginning of the story...but not enough that I can say it isn't a standalone.

Sienna Snow continues her series Rules of Engagement series with another hot installment, Rule Master. We were introduced to Milla and Lex as Arya’s best friend/business partner and her hot attorney and second in command. It was revealed that the two were in fact married to the surprise of everyone who knew them.

As a prominent Italian heiress with an impossible mother, Milla has spent the last decade acting like the wild, rebellious party girl. No one knew that in reality she was happily married

Lex is a pretty blunt man, “Milla, stop staring at me like that or I’m going to get up and eff you like I’ve wanted to for the past six months.” Lex, at times is not a morning person, "please tell me you aren’t trading stocks this early in the morning? I don’t care if Japan’s exchange thinks it’s Monday,” Lex mumbled and covered his head with a pillow." I really liked this book, Lex was one determined man. ...more

I have to say that I love this series! Rule Master is heartbreaking good. We read about Mil's life after her abduction from book one. It changed her and she is broken. She leaves and goes home to mourn and tries to understand what happened to her. She also abandoned everyone that she loves. Then does something that she thought was best for Lex. And not only were her friends kind of pissed about it, I was too.

Lex in the first book did not seem in control as he is in Rule Master. I originally tho

I knew that Sienna Snow would be one of my favorite Authors after I read her first book, and this latest installment just cemented that fact. What a hot and steamy read. I was also lucky enough to have gotten a copy from the Author in exchange for a review which I am more than happy to provide. First off I would recommend that you read the books in order, this is the second book of the series, just so you get an idea who everybody is and what our Heroine had to endure, however you could still en ...more

OH MY GOSH what a story!! This is book 2 in the Rules of Engagement series and it's left me speechless! It blows my mind that this is a new author, her books are so well written (not to mention HOT)!

Milla is an Italian heiress and is an entrepreneur who runs two multinational corporations with her sister (not by blood, by choice) Arya. She's in her birth city of Milan however, she longs to be back in Boston where she currently lives. Six months ago she only took her job seriously and she worked

I could have loved this book more if not for Milla being so frustrating. I really didn't get her reasonning at all (I am not good enough he deserves better) and why she wouldn't just communicate her fear with Lex. Her push and pull game annoyed me a lot. Fortunately it was stopped early enough and I could enjoy the rest of the book better. Until she got all annoying again. ...more

This was my first book by Sienna Snow, and I must say that I wish I had started with the first book in this series. I admit to feeling like I was trying to play catch up from the very start, but by the time Lex appeared on the page, I was hooked. I eventually got the gist of what had occurred in book one and was completely sucked into this story. It had a lot of intensity and emotional ups and downs to go along with the sexy smoldering bedroom, airplane, office scenes. These were of a BDSM natur ...more

Rule Master is the highly anticipated second installment in the Rules of Engagement series and it follows Milla and Lex's journey.

Milla is trying to recover from her kidnapping and living through the aftermath of what they did to her. Lex is fighting to save their marriage and trying to bring Milla back to herself. Their journey was both beautiful and heartbreaking. They've been secretly married for 10 years and, at times, it was frustrating to watch them struggle to get back to each other.

I loved this story as much as the first one! I loved getting to see Lex and Milla's story. I was definitely surprised by how long and close their relationship was from what we seen in the first book. I cried and laughed and wanted to sometimes knock them both behind their head. It was fun to see the gang back together and see what they were all up to. It was suspenseful and hot. ...more

Amazing follow up to Rule Breaker! This book can be read as a stand alone, but I recommend the first book too.

Sienna Snow goes to deeper emotional level than the first book and skillfully blends the love, tragedy, and recovery. I was drawn into Milla and Lex's story from the beginning. My heart ached for all that Milia's been through and how she's grown as a result of her kidnapping. The love Lex has for Milla is so deep that nothing can break it, even Milla's fears.

Leigh's review:

3.75 stars

I think I may be the anomaly here, but I had a hard time connecting with this story. The characters were all deep and complex, the relationships intertwined and interesting, and the story was smart and steamy. Couple that with the fact that I loved the previous book in the series and it had all of the elements of an amazing book. Yet for me, by the time I got over my irritation with the heroine, I was no longer invested.

Milla is an Italian heiress and billionaire busines

This book was better than the first. I loved these characters. Lex and Milla have a love that everyone dreams of. They are willing to sacrifice for the other. The story is filled with suspense, tragedy, love, redemption, and laughter. I can't forget the sex. Super hot!

I love how Arya and Carmen are still a part of the story in this second book, with the main characters being Milla and Lex. These two are my favorite couple! Their love is so powerful. I absolutely love the first book and this is one is just as great! The sex is still hot and steamy, and keeps the reader interested because it's very unique and designed especially and only for Lex and Milla! Milla's story with Lex and her family is something I think we all can relate to. I love the ending!! It's ...more

This book was beautiful written and I couldn't put it down. I was blown away by the emotional connection Sienna conveyed through the heroine, Milla's eyes. Lex is a super hot hero, who loves with a soul deep passion and will protect the woman he loves from anything.

I'd recommend this book to anyone who loves steamy novels with an emotional connection.

Wow.. I am totally surprised by this book. By this series. It's totally not what I expected, and I mean that in the best possible. I am so addicted to Lex and Max. How Lex managed to be okay with their relationship being kept private and a secret for a decade is beside me. Not only that, the way she acted in public and he just had to sit back and watch, and let it happen. But,

I loved the first book. It was a fun and quick read. The whole cast of friends was great. So after reading book one and finding out about Mila and Lex (which was obvious) and seeing how their relationship was standing after the aftermath of book one, I couldn't wait to read about them.
Well let me just say I was disappointed in Mila. As Arya was a great heroine, Mila was irritating. I got why Arya wasn't talking with Max. But Mila the reason not talking with Lex was stupid and selfish, specially

This is the second book In the Rules of Engagement series and I recommend reading them in order. After the first book, I couldn't wait to read Lex and Milla's story! We were left hanging at the end when it was revealed that Lex and Milla were actually married!

I felt like we were on a whirlwind of reveals here. The first one with Milla and Lex was a shocker but not surprising. Her stupidity when it came to Lex and her was though. They are meant to be and her throwing it away was just stupid. Why? Because she was feeling vulnerable and insecure. She also had guilt. But she didn’t quite learn from her past for she wanted to in the end jump in again without thinking and putting everyone in harm’s way if necessary b

Warning! Prior to reading turn down the AC because this book is steamy hot!

I was given a copy of this book from NetGalley and didn’t realize until after I finished it that it was book number two of a series. I was drawn to this book because it has a hot sexy man with piercing blue eyes on the cover and with a blurb “His rules. Her pleasure. His way.” I couldn’t resist not reading.
I have to admit I was a little nervous going into this book despite the sexy man on the cover and the catchy blurb.
