By definition, a Sadist is one who receives sexual gratification from causing pain and degradation to another.

That's me to a T.

I only play with those who understand what it means, those who are willing to indulge my devious desires.

Any masochist who seeks me out knows that if they trespass, I will gladly shatter them and walk away, leaving them for someone else to put back together.

Yet the cowboy and the pretty boy have given themselves to me. They have agreed to play by my rules and there is only one: THERE ARE NO RULES.

I have warned them. I'm not looking for companionship or love. I don't want to be their friend, their confidant, or their lover. I'm in it for pleasure only. In the form of pain.

I am ruthless.

I am a Sadist.

And I make no excuses for it.

Oh my! I love how fearless this author is with her writing. I love it when an author can take me out of my comfort zone and yet make me comfortable while doing it. LOL, if that makes any sense. Their Ruthless Sadist is a dark but beautifully written story of three men with different past that has shaped them into who they are today, who all have different needs / desires yet they come together and complete each other so perfectly. Not only did I fall in love with these men, but Jamie Zeke’s baby sister also stole my heart. I cannot wait for her story. A definite must read ! Christy Radical Reads Book Blog

5 Star Review Their Ruthless Sadist (Office Intrigue #) by Nicole Edwards The 5th instalment in the Office Intrigue series and wow, this was a book that could and on occasion did take me out of my comfort zone. Be prepared this is a MMM story and as the title states “Sadist” this is not a light and breezy look at BDSM. This is a whole lot more; you have been warned. Zeke, where do I start? From the first moment he was mentioned in this series I just knew that the story he had to tell would be intense and amazing and as the title states he is a sadist through and through. I fell for Zeke in Their Famous Dominant and I just love the relationship he has with his dog Tank as well. I was also intrigued by Case and Brax from the start, their relationship and the baggage that they bring to it. I don’t think even they knew what was truly missing in their relationship until Zeke. When Zeke is added to the mix the story Nicole Edwards weaved became so much more and the intensity is elevated . I was totally hooked from the begging to the end. I am not going into detail with this review because I believe you will get more enjoyment if you go in “blind”. Their Ruthless Sadist is a smoking hot, hardcore book full of emotions that will leave you wanting more.

Their Ruthless Sadist is book 5 in the Office Intrigue Series and for me this series is getting stronger and better with each book released but be warned this is not the guide of BDSM for beginners please take note because the title says it all... We met the main characters Zeke, Case and Brax in Their Famous Dominant but that doesn’t mean this book can’t be read as a stand-alone because in this book we get to know the real men we get to see the layers that Zeke hides so well and we get to see him realise that you need love in your life and it doesn’t always mean heartache it can complete you and make you whole if you are with your soulmates but this isn’t just about Zeke this love story involves 3 men learning that loving yourself is as important as loving each other, it’s about trusting enough to open up with the secrets you have kept from the past and it’s about breaking down the barriers that are put up to protect yourself from being hurt again. Who would have thought a book about a Sadist/masochist ménage relationship could be such a beautifully written love story well once again Nicole Edwards has shown us her books are not just steaming hot they are full of love, passion and characters we always fall in love with. A brilliant addition to a great series from a very talented author.

I will say that this author is one I buy without even reading the blurb because I know I always love her work. With this book, I wasn't sure how I was going to like it since I am not one who likes to read about the humiliation and pain of others, but once I got into it, I realized I had nothing to be worried about. Once again, the author hooked me in and made me fall in love with the characters. I loved the interactions between Case and Brax, and then when Zeke joined the mix, it just made things heat up so much more. I really didn't want the story to end. I will be interested to see if Zeke's sister gets a story. I think that may be an interesting read.

I love this story! It was intense at times, but completely worth it. Zeke, Case, and Brax are perfect for each other. Another fabulous book by Nicole Edwards!

Nicole Edwards is one of my favorite authors, I know going into her books I can loose myself for hours and be thankful for the escape. She always delivers a four or five star read for me and this book was no different...well actually it was a bit different it was the first time she wrote a MMM book. Nicole has gifted us with many different sexual mixes but this is the first time she has delved into an all male poly/triad relationship and I have to say she hit the nail on the head with this one. Zeke, wow! I instantly fell in love with him...OK, let me step back for a minute because I need to say that although I did receive an Advanced Readers Copy of this book from the author, which I am truly grateful for, I purchased the audio book and listened to it instead of reading because the last couple of weeks have been hell and it was easier for me to listen to the book while driving around and doing things then trying to find the time to sit and read which is what I normally do. Now back to Zeke, the narrator Tor Thom had such a gravely voice when portraying him that really worked at bringing an intensity to him that felt palpable. Badass Sadist Zeke really came to life for me with this narrator and truth be told I don't know if anyone else could have done that. Case and Brax are in a committed relationship but they both knew there was something that Zeke could add that neither of them could bring to the table. Both Case and Brax are Masochist, one enjoys the pain while the other enjoys the humiliation, but neither of them are able to dole out what their partner needs the way Zeke can. Zeke, Case, and Brax are great together! I really enjoyed the three men together they each had something to bring to the table that made the relationship work. This is hardcore BDSM so if this isn't your cup of tea you may want to pass but I will tell you that you will be missing an amazing book if you do. I recommend this book to those that enjoy reading about BDSM, and Erotic Contemporary Romance, as well as poly/triad relationships, LGBTQ, MMM, well you get the gist of it. Happy Reading!!!

4 stars for - Their Ruthless Sadist - book five in the Office Intrigue series by Nicole Edwards. This story can be read as a complete stand-alone but all three of the main characters were previously introduced in book four of the series - Their Famous Dominant - and that too was a highly enjoyable read. This is Edward's first MMM ménage and she knocked it out of the park, exploring both the triad and individually relationships beautifully. I've said it once and I will say it again, no one writes ménage better than Nicole Edwards! Zeke Lautner is a sadist and by definition he enjoys delivering pain and humiliation to a willing submissive. He is an extremely large man with an overwhelming presence and has never met a sub that he couldn't break. Many subs have assumed they wanted his brand of pain and punishment only to run away crying in the end, until he meets the cowboy and the pretty boy. Case (the pretty boy) is a very well built fitness trainer that stands over six feet tall. He screams dominant male in every aspect of his life yet he can't help but want to submit to Zeke. Brax (the cowboy) is a personal chef to a movie star and is no slouch in the looks department either. Being well defined and just over six feet tall he too tends to turn heads whenever they go out to the club. Brax also yearns to please and while pain isn't his goal his need for domination seeps out in all he does. These two submissives have finally found someone that can meet all their needs but he only wants temporary. Case and Brax hope they can prevent their hearts from falling as fast as their resolve does whenever they are around the big, surly man. This book was really heavy into the BDSM (as was warned) and showcased the many tools and devices that the dominants/sadists use on there subs. I was actually googling some of these items just to have a better visual of what exactly these guys were in for when Zeke was feeling extra wicked. The love story while there was intertwined with the pain that Zeke doles out and was steamy and so hot too. I am hoping we get Edge's story next because with a name like that you know it's got to be good!

Their Ruthless Sadist, is book 5 in the Office Intrigue Series by Nicole Edwards. This book is a new kind of menage than any other I have read from Edwards, MMM menage. This book is best read in reading order with the other books in the series. This was one of those books that you just didn't want to put down. This book is about more than a sexual thing between 3 men. The book is the story of how three men come together and make each other better and complete each other. As a lover of hardcore BDSM books, I thoroughly enjoy this book. It was definitely not like other books that Edwards has written, and that's not a bad thing. If you enjoy the M/M genre, Menage and BDSM, Their Ruthless Sadist is a book you don't want to miss.

This wonderful book blew me away I knew it was about BDSM and much more but the way it was written was tender and knowledgeable .. Zeke is a dominant who works with subs never having a relationship with any of them as in a previous situation it was a disaster on both parts. . Zeke is a sadist. Case and Brax are a couple who are committed to each other . They are masochists. The tenderness each show each other is marvellous you can feel their passion .. Passionate and extremely sexual How Case and Brax who as a couple feel that something is missing in their relationship . I love these guys and watching them decide their situation was breathtaking . Enter Zeke who will work with them as a Sadist to help them but ............. Feelings occur they desire each other ,there is much working out situations between them such a lot of feelings... There is such a softer side to Zeke that is written extremely well . These guys have a past they disclose in such a way its an essential part of the book. Its a book that took me away to meet these lovely men I felt I was there and I could see all sides . Read the last 30% twice and didn't want to leave these guys..... This book has left me with a glow ... Highly recommend this book ......

There are so many things I want to say about this story. There were also so many feelings I had going into this story. One of them was fear. But before I scare you off from finishing this review and dismissing this book, I have to say I loved this story and fell in love with the characters. Now, so you can make an informed choice on if this is a book for you, I’ll tell you about my fears going in. I don’t think it’s a secret that Nicole Edwards is a huge favorite of mine. I didn’t want that to change by reading a book of hers that may be out of my realm of comfort. To be honest, there were plenty of warnings given when this book was offered as an ARC about the nature of the story. I’ve made it clear in past reviews that I cannot stand someone giving a book a bad review just because they don’t like the genre. I’m not particularly fond of sadomasochism. I also have some kind of mental block when it comes to men being subs (and, although it doesn’t pertain to this book, women being doms). I’m not sure why that is. It doesn’t bother me in a way that I think it’s “wrong”…to each his own. Do that which feels right to you as long as you’re with a willing partner and all of that. But it’s just something I have a hard time picturing in my mind. I also know that I’m quite good (if I do say so myself) at being objective. I felt I could judge this book on its story and characters regardless of their kinks. Plus, how can I skip a book by this author when I’ve read everything else she’s written? Not to mention, we’ve met all of these characters before and I was already half in love with Zeke from Their Famous Dominant. Imagine my surprise when I not only fell fully in love with Zeke, Case, and Brax and their story, but also fell in love with this book overall. The shift in Zeke through the story was so subtle that even Case aka the Pretty Boy and Brax aka the Cowboy didn’t fully realize the extent of his change until later. From my disclaimer at the beginning, I’m obviously not in the sadomasochism scene. I can’t attest to this book’s authenticity or the feelings of the three characters. But it makes sense that a sadist has another side. After all, he/she will go out to their job and visit with their family and have holidays with loved ones just like everyone else. So of course he/she could fall in love and be hurt just like everyone else. I don’t think this is a spoiler since, if you read the last book, you know Zeke has a softer side he tries to hide. The same can be said for a masochist. They don’t go along in their life being walked all over by everyone just because in their personal/sexual life they crave pain and/or humiliation. The author did such a beautiful job of showing all sides to these characters and humanizing them to the reader. The connection between Brax and Case is magnificent. The way they love and care for one another is hard to find. When they enter into their agreement with Zeke, they seem to care more about if the other one is going to get what is needed and if it’s truly what the other wants than if their own wants and needs will be fulfilled. Any relationship has jealousy, but when you make it a relationship of three that just adds more opportunity for that jealousy to pop up. I’m happy the author didn’t ignore this fact even though all parties went into the arrangement with their eyes wide open. I don't have much room to write more, I'm just going to leave you with saying I highly recommend this story.

This book took me completely out of my comfort zone, it's not for the feint hearted. It's full on S&M with a great love story. I absolutely loved Zeke in the previous book and I'm so happy to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book. He's a really intriguing character with so much depth to his personality. He's definitely the most sensitive of the three. Brax and Case have been in a relationship for a few years so there in perfect sync to each other. While both masochists they have very different needs. They've both been missing something to really complete them and up to this point haven't been able to find the right person. Meeting Zeke opens their world up to a whole new level of kink. I don't have a huge amount of experience reading this level of S&M as it's never been of that much interest so I found that side of the story fascinating. It's really well done and really well explained, at no point did I not understand what was going on or the reasons why. The dynamic between all three was quite complex and not without its issues at the beginning. I think if it was all peachy from the start it wouldn't of been believable. The story is revetting, the POV changes often so your never really left wondering what one of them was ever thinking. They all bring something different to the table and all as strong as each other. I think my favourite parts were when Brax and Case stepped up and showed how strong they can be, this gave Zeke a chance to be vulnerable without losing this badass status. The hotness factor is through the roof, there's no shortage of sexy times and each scene gets better and better.

In Their Ruthless Sadist we once again meet Zeke, Case and Brax all of whom we previously met within the pages of Their Famous Dominant. Zeke is a well known dominant sadist who has recently joined the staff at Chatter PR Global and a member of Dichotomy, commonly known as The Club. Case and Brax have moved to take up new jobs within the same organisation. As submissive masochists they also have memberships to The Club. However, irrespective of the labels that each of the main characters have, and what they need to fulfil them sexually, this is essentially a story of love and acceptance. Throw in a whole lot of really hot sex and we have another fabulous novel from the pen of Nicole Edwards. But any reader familiar with works by this author will know that nothing that she writes is ever quite as simple as that. She has the uncanny ability to write love stories that will simultaneously break your heart and have you dance in the street in celebration, and this is no exception! It is with the greatest hope that the story of Master Edge and Jamie is the next in this series by the talented Nicole Edwards.

Wow!! Just Wow!! Let me start off by saying this book is nothing like what I thought it was going to be. Nicole Edwards blew me away with her storytelling skills in this one. I was deeply engrossed in this one from the minute I opened this book. It is an excellent read. I am not usually very big on these types of books where there is already an established relationship and then a third enters, but the third in this book is no third wheel by any means!! These guys, Braxton and Case, as beautiful and wonderful as they were as a couple, were completely lost and broken without Zeke in their lives, and the same goes for Zeke, he was a lost and broken soul without these guys, although he did not realize it or more like he refused to acknowledge his predicament. These three guys are absolutely perfect together and completed each other in ways that none of the other imagined when they first entered into this relationship. I absolutely loved all three of these guys. Their Ruthless Sadist is not only one steamy and super hot ride, but it is also an extremely emotional one. My heart tore open for these guys and their stories. Each of these guys have experienced their own heartbreak and has his own story that has affected how they relate to each other and what has determined their need or want for what he needs or expects in a relationship. And just as Their Ruthless Sadist tugged at my heart strings, it made me laugh just the same. The things that Zeke says and thinks are absolutely hysterical during much of this story. And Case and Brax are just as funny with their antics. Oh, and yeah, this book is definitely not for the faint of heart. There are truly some very extreme scenes that occur in this book that may make a reader uncomfortable, and I will admit to not being comfortable reading every single scene, but I understood the purpose of each and every scene. So, do not go into this one looking for a fluffy read, because that is not what you will get with this one. The title means what it says. Nicole Edwards went deep into BDSM in this one, and I appreciate that she explained what things were, because, yes, there were times when I had to whip out Google to get a visual on what I was reading!! YIKES!!! I highly recommend reading this one, I do, believe that Their Ruthless Sadist is my favorite of the series, thus far, and that is saying a lot, since I loved Their Rebellious Submissive so much. Bravo, Nicole Edwards on this one!! I cannot wait for the next installment in this series.

Their Ruthless Sadist is a deep, hot, forbidden, intense and erotic exploration of love, life and sexuality. The storyline is well-written and captivating. The characters are intriguing and to see the relationship between Zeke, Brax and Case develop throughout the story was great. This is a stay-up-all-night-and-read-just-one-more-page-book! I volunteered to review an advance reader copy of this book.

Wow! This series just keeps getting better. Zeke is first mentioned in Their Famous Dominant, and so are Case and Brax. Let me tell you Zeke is a totally different animal in this book! The title is perfect, because Zeke doesn't play when it comes to being a Sadist. There's a reputation about him, and it's well-earned. But, of course there's more to Zeke than his infamous persona. Case and Brax have their own baggage, and it's not all sunshine and roses when they meet Zeke. There's just something about him they can't seem to stay away from. These guys are all complicated in different ways, yet how they interact will have your heart racing, emotions all over the place, and you will definitely feel some heat below the equator--wink, wink! This was a beautifully told story about a lot of things that I don't want to spoil for you. I'm still hungover a bit from it. Nicole does it again, and I can't wait for the next one!

Master Zeke is a sadist and he makes no excuses for it. Most people only see that part of him,the other part he keeps hidden. When Case and Brax agree to be his submissive,they know it’s only for a short time ,but they need to experience what he can give them. I fell in love with these characters in Their Famous Dominant,so I was eager to read their story. I loved it!!! Captivated from the first page,Zeke,Brax and Case are complex characters their story has depth and passion,expect to be blow away with some of the hottest scenes but to also be wowed by a beautiful story of finding the ones who accept everything you are!

"Maybe two of them could handle one of me. The odds were certainly in my favor." I admit, I kinda didn't know what I was in for when I decided to follow a favorite author over to the dark side. But, since discovering Nicole Edwards five years ago, she's not disappointed me yet. I love her writing style and she's taken me to places I would not have ventured otherwise. She made me fall in love with her Walker brothers and gave me a virtual tour of Club Destiny and ever since I haven't shied away from whatever kink she introduced me to in her stories. I'm a willing voyeur, ready to read and learn. And let me tell you, Their Ruthless Sadist was an education I won't soon forget. I met Zeke in Their Famous Dominant. In that story, he was big, badass and broody but I wasn't fooled. Yes, he's HUGE, being six foot eight inches, two hundred eighty pounds of solid muscle. But, how bad could he be if he's an animal lover, right? I didn't know, but when I learned that he was getting his own book, I was anxious to find out. I was curious about what would make a man determined to close himself off from feeling emotions and seek only to inflict physical pain on those who desire it. He calls it playing, but there is no smiling involved on his part. He's always looking, but so far hasn't found anyone who can handle his idea of pleasure. They all seek him out, his reputation preceding him, but they've all been a disappointment so far. Until them...the cowboy and the pretty boy. Maybe that's what he needed all along, more than one. Of course, I was mentally matchmaking from the beginning. That's what I do. Being inside Zeke's head, I knew he had closed his heart off. But I'm a hopeless romantic and I was not giving up on him, even though he had given up on himself. There's someone for everyone, right? Or maybe even two someones. I have no problem with #KinkClubs #TeasingTorture #OfficeSex #HumiliatingHunks or #SexySadists. I don't judge, we all like what we like and love who we love. What I didn't expect was for the author to make me cry. Yes, it's true. I became so invested in these characters, getting to know them, feeling their pain both good and bad. She pulled my heartstrings so tight the tears were released against my will. She warned me what I was in for before I read the first page, but like the cowboy and the pretty boy, I signed on believing I knew what to expect. We were all wrong. I'm loving all the characters I've met in this series and I'm excited about where it might go next. I've got my fingers crossed about a certain couple that I'm hoping will get together. Until the next book is revealed I'll just have to indulge in some #DungeonFantasies while I wait. The line forms here...
