Pay close attention here please. First this is an awesome series. Worth EVERY penny. Secondly why give an author a bad review before you even read ? Also an important note is that if you can't read it once you buy it then it's on Barnes and Noble not the Author. Call Barnes and Noble to get it fixed!

Satisfaction is book two in Lexi Blake’s latest series Lawless and was just as great as the first book. The Lawless brothers Riley, Drew, Brandon, and their sister Mia, are bound and determined to seek revenge on those they hold responsible for their parents’ murders 20 years ago. Separated after their parent’s death and out into the foster care system, the siblings fought to regain control of their lives whilst actively seeking revenge. Their lives were not easy, particularly Bandon’s and it is from this that they draw their strength and their commitment to seek justice for their parents. When the opportunity arises for Brandon to get close to Carly Hendricks, the personal assistant to Patricia, one of the people responsible, he jumps at the opportunity. Brandon realises quickly that he wants more from Carly and struggles with his feelings and in fact opens-up to her about his “mission”. When circumstances put Carly in danger, Brandon knows he has no choice but to fight for her very life. Brandon has struggled throughout his life, not believing that he deserves love and happiness. Will Carly be the one to make a difference? Brandon’s history is at times heartbreaking and certainly made for an emotional read at times. The chemistry between Brandon and Carly was sizzling. There was mystery, intrigue, suspense, hot alpha men and as you can expect from most books from Ms. Blake some moments of humour. I love Lexi Blake’s writing style; no one does romantic suspense like she does. Brandon and Carly deserved to find happiness after the heartbreak and tragedies of their pasts. Satisfaction is one of those books that in many parts, you read and go, wait, no, did that really happen? I am eagerly anticipating the next book in the series particularly since Satisfaction ended on such a cliff-hanger and I cannot wait for Revenge. These books are like peeling an onion, one layer at a time until the mystery is solved. I would suggest that you read them in order.

Brandon Lawless is the youngest brother in the Lawless clan. His job of late has been to help his brothers’ and sister get revenge for their parents’ deaths. He will do whatever it takes to get the information they need to bring their killers to justice. Including seducing the enemy’s personal assistant the fact that she is beautiful and innocent has made it a bit more complicated for Brandon. She is exactly the kind of girl he would love to have a normal life with to live the rest of his life with in peace. But he’s no good, he can’t live a normal life he has too much baggage. He can’t resist her sweet innocence and he refuses to lie to her in order to get what he wants. I loved that Brandon was honest with Carly from the moment he met her. Instead of following the big elaborate scam his brother Drew came up with for Drew to date her and woo her into getting them the goods on her boss. Brandon saw something in Carly from the moment he laid eyes on her. They were such a perfect couple. They both try to resist the sexual tension between them. They soon find out it is a futile effort. Carly Hendricks was a sweetheart I loved her. I adored how she protected her sister, I loved how she wouldn’t let Drew’s attitude and sarcasm get the best of her. She is a tough cookie dealt a bad hand by her nasty boss and life in general. The chemistry between Carly and Brandon was awesome every touch was like the first time. They both shared an innocence that was endearing. Brandon never had this kind of connection with a woman as an adult. This series has quickly become another favorite of mine. I crazy about the sibling relationship that Drew, Riley, Brandon, and Mia share. They are bonded by the tragedy in their lives but they also love each other and want what’s best for the other to be happy. The funny banter they share especially when they all gang up on Drew was hilarious. There are a lot of twists, turns, and revelations to be had throughout the book. Brandon opens up to Carly about his time in the system as a kid and the things that happened to him are heartbreaking. I cannot wait for Drew and Shelby’s story she is going to give him a run for his money for sure. Another fantastic read by Ms. Blake.

This review was written by Marie for a guest review post on Ever After Book Reviews blog: Rating: 3.5 Stars When I read the first book of this series, I fell in love immediately. A brilliant story of revenge that includes espionage, deception, and scandal. It’s an addicting premise for any fan of suspense. But what makes that premise spectacular is the characters who help to make it unfold before your very eyes. So when Satisfaction was released, I was thrilled that I’d see more of what made the first book of the series so great. Or would I… Satisfaction starts right where Ruthless left off. Ms. Blake throws you right back in to the lives of the Lawless siblings with full force. Naturally, I’m hooked. Our sibling this go-round, Brandon (otherwise known as Bran), is sexy. He’s internally fighting his need for revenge, but he’s also got a certain old-fashioned charm to him that is undeniably attractive. So when he meets Carly, his enemy’s assistant, I was thrilled at the idea of their romance exploding before me with all kinds of chemistry. Except… it never did. Now, don’t get me wrong. Lexi Blake knows how to write some extremely steamy scenes. She just… gets it. But all eroticism and steaminess aside, the needed connection between Carly and Bran was just never there for it to be a truly believable romance. Something with the two of them was just off for me. I’m not sure if it was Bran’s self-wallowing, or Carly’s insecurities and lack of compassion for those around her… or if it was just that their personalities weren’t compatible. Either way, this was the one area of the book that truly lacked for me. That being said, this was still a solid story. Ms. Blake is a fantastic story-teller with a unique voice. Satisfaction may not have been as good as Ruthless, but she still manages to continue the saga of the Lawless siblings the best way she knows how – with sizzle. ***I read and reviewed a paperback copy of the book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own*** (less)

Excellent book and WORTH EVERY PENNY!! Lexi Blake delivered another "edge of your seat" book. There are many twists and turns; and when you think you have it figured out...think again. Can't wait for the next book in this series, Revenge.

Satisfaction By: Lexi Blake 5 Star Review by Kristie K Lexi Blake is a true mistress of sensual, seductive, and breathtaking suspense… Brandon Lawless and his brothers run their own business…but their primary goal is revenge. When the perfect opportunity to get close to their nemesis presents itself through the gorgeous, and innocent Carly Fisher. Unwilling to deceive her, and much to the chagrin of his older brother, Brandon puts the fate of their mission, and ultimately his heart, in her hands. Carly Fisher works for evil incarnate. Her boss is the epitome of vicious, wicked, and corrupt…and kind hearted Carly is caught in her web. When a gorgeous, sweet, and strong hunk of a man shows up with a proposition for her, Carly has to choose between playing it safe, or standing up for what’s right. Doing the right thing has never felt so dangerous, Carly stands to lose more than just her job…her life, and her heart are in jeopardy. Holy horde of monkey balls, this book was amazing!! Ms. Blake has always managed to find the perfect balance of hot, sexual chemistry, gut-wrenching betrayal, and mind boggling suspense…Satisfaction is no exception! From the very first word, to the very last, I was absolutely hooked. A major book hangover is being treated as we speak, but I am certain the only cure will be the next installment of the Lawless series. Brandon Lawless is the perfect blend of sweet, strong, gorgeous, and broken. I want him for my own. Carly Fisher is his perfect match, strong in her own right, but kind, sassy, and innocent. The characters were incredibly well developed, the storyline and plot flawless, and the plot twists kept me guessing and always on my toes. The Rolling Stones ain’t got nothing to complain about here…I definitely got my Satisfaction. Kristie K

I'm waffling between 3.5-4 stars on this one.. Brandon and Carly's relationship made me feel like I was riding a roller coaster. It was chock-full of emotions that ran the gamut from self doubt and insecurities to happiness and joy. While I do think Bran and Carly had decent physical chemistry, I felt their relationship was just a band-aid for deeper emotional wounds neither had dealt with yet. For me, that made their emotional side of their relationship not as believable and was a much harder sell for me to sink into. Picking up where RUTHLESS ended, SATISFACTION jumps straight into a riveting, suspenseful, and sometimes thought-provoking read. Although Bran and Carly's romance fell flat for me, the overall plot was a fantastic entry to this trilogy! Ian's sarcastic wit and charm alone was worth my time. The plot twist was quite crafty, in a chilling sort of way, and sets the perfect tone for Drew's story in REVENGE. SATISFACTION is book two in the series, but can easily be read as a stand alone.

Heat and suspense! I was so happy to read the second installment of the Lawless series. Along with Bran being so in depth, there is Carly, a strong heroine and I love the banter that I have come to love in Lexi Blake's books.

✦Review: SATISFACTION (A Lawless Novel) by Lexi Blake Publication Date: January 3, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance Reviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/ Cori Rated: 4.5 Stars Bran is my favorite Lawless bother! I loved his story and completely fell in love with him. The Lawless series is a spinoff of Lexi Blake's Masters and Mercenaries series. The series will have a book for each of the brothers in the Lawless family, but their sister Mia has a book in the Masters and Mercenaries series, Dominance Never Dies. You don't have to read it before picking up the Lawless Series, but if you want to follow the complete storyline I'd read it first. The Lawless Series is all about the Lawless siblings seeking vengeance for their murdered parents. Bran is the youngest Lawless brother and Carly is the PA to the woman the Lawless siblings think murdered their parents. Their story was full intrigue, danger, suspense and smoking hot romance. It's a hot romance series with a mystery that keeps the reader guessing. I highly recommend this series and can't wait for the oldest brother's book. *Review copy provided by Penguin in exchange for an honest review.

Satisfaction 5 Satisfied Stars This is the second book of the Lawless series and one I have been anticipating since finishing Ruthless, this book centres on Brandon Lawless who is the youngest male sibling! I have to admit I didn't think Lexi could top Ruthless, it was a book that intrigued me and kept me wanting more throughout but for me Satisfaction completely won out! This book grabbed my attention from the outset, I haven't been able to put it down since I started it and have finished it in one long sitting! Lexi's writing draws me straight into the heart of the book and pulls me in more and more every page I read. There are so many different layers and you feel like you've just got one uncovered when you find the next layer waiting to be torn away! The suspense is well built and never overdone nor is it skimmed over, it's always well thought out and developed. I knew Bran was going to steal my heart but I don't think I realised just how much! His story really pulled on my heart strings and there were times my heart literally ached for the feelings he had about himself! He was so much more loveable that Riley, don't get me wrong I did love Riley in his story but Bran's character just had so much more of an appeal to me. The way he treated women and especially Carly endeared me to him and there were times I just wanted to steal him for myself. Carly was such an amazing heroine for me, she has had some really bad luck but her good nature and her kind heart never lost their sparkle. She was a great influence on Bran. She has definitely been my favourite woman in the series so far. I feel like I have a vested interest in this family and the secrets they are trying to uncover, that's Lexi's gift! She makes you feel as if you are living this alongside these characters and have just as much to lose as them. There were times in this book I had to stop reading as my eyes had misted over and I had to have a little cry and then there were times I was sitting biting my nails wondering where she was leading us next!! There is no way I could have anticipated what happened in the epilogue and Lexi is an evil genius for leaving me hanging on like that. I'm expecting great things from Drew and especially Shelby, I think she will keep him on his toes and bring some good humour to Revenge! I can't wait to get my grubby mitts on it!! This book has so much going for it, the characters have amazing chemistry, they are all likeable and totally relatable and the suspense and intrigue keeps you desperately waiting to see what happens. This is a must read series!!

SATISFACTION is the second installment in Lexi Blake’s contemporary, adult LAWLESS romantic, suspense series focusing on the Lawless siblings-Riley, Drew, Brandon and Mia. This is Brandon Lawless, and PA Carly Hendricks’s story line. SATISFACTION can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty but I recommend reading the series in order for backstory and cohesion as each installment focuses on revenge and retribution for a twenty year old murder. There is a bit of a cross over/spinoff with Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries series with the appearance and ongoing role for Mia Lawless and Navy SEAL Case Taggart (Dominance Never Dies), and the McKay –Taggart Security Service. Told from dual third person perspectives (Brandon and Carly) SATISFACTION focuses on revenge against the people believed to have murdered the sibling’s parents. Twenty years earlier Benedict Lawless and his wife Iris were killed in a house fire intended to kill the entire family-a murder for hire where greed and power were the precipitating factors. The authorities ruled it a murder/suicide but the Lawless siblings are determined to clear their father’s name. Fast forward to present day wherein our hero Brandon Lawless, steps out of his comfort zone, and approaches Carly Hendricks hoping for some help with the investigation into his parent’s murder. Carly is the PA to media mogul and reality TV personality Patricia Cain-a woman linked to the Lawless murder, and the potential murder of several other parties. What ensues is the building relationship between Carly and Brandon, and the struggle to protect Carly from her ex-husband’s past. Brandon Lawless (aka Brandon Lang) is a complex, broken hero. All of the siblings were separated into the foster care system following the death of their parents but Brandon’s experiences were far more traumatic and disturbing than his much luckier brothers and sister. Carly is a woman whose marriage was destroyed by lies and betrayal, and her husband’s past has come back looking for payment and revenge- in more ways than one. Carly Hendricks has issues with low self-esteem that continues to affect our heroine throughout the story-she is a woman who believes she is not worthy of Brandon’s attention. The relationship between Brandon and Carly is one of immediate attraction although Brandon went against his brother’s orders and revealed his family history to the woman with whom he would fall in love. Carly is a woman scorned; threatened by events of the past; and a woman who wants more from Brandon than he is willing to give. The $ex scenes are intimate and intense. All of the Lawless siblings play secondary and supporting roles, as well as Case and Cain Taggart (McKay-Taggart Security), and one of Benedict’s former partners Bill ‘Hatch’ Hatchard-a man who all but raised the Lawless siblings once he was able to determine their foster care history. Once again, I suspect there is a story about Hatch, and his role in the entire family saga; the ‘cliff hanger’ ending reveals a twist to the story that will shock both the reader and the story line characters. We are also introduced to journalist/reporter Shelby Gates-a woman researching the truth behind Patricia Cain’s meteoric rise, and her potential connection to the death of Shelby’s older brother. Shelby and Drew’s story is next in Revenge (June 2017). SATISFACTION is a provocative and intriguing tale with an innovative twist to the story line ending. The premise is complex

I have read all of the Masters and Mercenaries series, and the first book in the Lawless series plus many of Lexi's other books and they are so good from the very beginning that I can't put them down until I finish the story. Not so with this book. It has been a struggle to finish reading it. I would start and lose interest and move on to a new book. Then I would come back to this book and read a little more, and lose interest again. This happened over and over again. I just made myself finish it, and that was with a lot of skimming through the story. It has litterly taken me months to finish it. I'm not sure what happened with this book but it just didn't come all. I never thought I would have to give one of Lexi's books only a 2 star rating, but here it is. I don't recommend this book. If you have never read one of Lexi's books before then I highly recommend you start with the first book in the Masters and Mercenaries series. Awesome series you won't be disappointed. As for this book wait until you have read the others, and if you feel you really need to read this book...well, then at least you will know that this book was a fluke. Happy Reading:)
