Ruthless by M.V. Kasi is the sequel to Soulless and continues the story forward with more secrets revealed and even more twists and turns that take your breath away.
This is indeed a ruthless story that ruthlessly extracted intense and a myriad of emotions from me. I cried my eyes out; felt angry at the injustice and cruelty of society; prayed like anything for a happily-ever-after for my favourite couple and then prayed some more so the real villains got what they deserved!
A through and through memorable book, the ending left me feeling content and overjoyed to see justice prevailing and happily-ever-afters achieved.
Fastpaced with crisp narration, MV Kasi again shows her writing prowess in this book and made it a book worthy of being featured in Njkinny's list of the Best Books of 2018!
5 super shiny stars out of 5 to Ruthless by M.V Kasi and Njkinny recommends it to all romantic suspense lovers above the age of eighteen. Don't wait even a second and go grab the Revenge Games series now!
\This is book continues the story of Ajay & Sia from ‘Soulless’. It is fastpaced but the story is fairly predictable and comes across as hoping to be made as a Bollywood movie.
The first book set the tone well – Sia has a plan in mind and Ajay coincidentally enters her life at a crucial time. Neither of them has been truthful with each other. Sia has suffered abuse in childhood which continues to torment her.
The story moves quickly, and yet the story in this book is weak. There are a number of very predictable and ordinary episodes as part of the narrative.
This is not a bad book to relax with, though there is almost nothing to remember it by.
I love happily ever afters and this one was no exception. I was wanting to know what happens to Ajay and Sia’s relationship after I finished soulless. The book is fastpaced and narrated well. The suspense and twists kept me guessing and glued to the book. There are many emotions in the book: friendship, love, trust, suspense and revenge. The author has beautifully dealt with the topic of child abuse. The characters are realistic and relatable. The point of view of both the characters has been dealt with, bust mostly Ajay’s. His love for Sia and all that he does for her has been portrayed well in the story. I loved the friendship between Harsha, Ajay and Jo. Though the story moves back and forth between the past and the present, not once did I feel lost, and it actually helped me relate to the first book of the series. The book is unputdownable till it is finished.
This is the second (and final) book in the Revenge Games Series, which is a duology featuring Soulless (the book which contains the introduction of the story that is continued & concluded here) & this book, Ruthless.
Now I know that there are books in some duologies that work as standalone reads as well. However, you can't read either of these books as standalones, as the Revenge Games Series is essentially one big story, which has been broken down into two parts/two books - Soulless & Ruthless.
Speaking of which, Ruthless picks up right where Soulless ends, but while Soulless was mostly Sia's story, it's Ajay's POV that takes dominance in Ruthless, while never really veering away from Sia & her tale of revenge either. I have to say that I found it really interesting to see how well the author has integrated the two story lines and POVs.
Much like Soulless, Ruthless is pretty fastpaced, with several twists & turns, some of them I saw coming, but many of them took me by surprise, and all of them were leading to the concluding sequence, which I must say was handled very well.
And for that I'm grateful, because after reading 2 books, I was really invested in how things turn out for the protagonists. Moreover, considering what Ajay & Sia had gone through, I knew there was no easy solution. Which is why, I have to commend the author for coming up with such a gratifying conclusion to this saga.
My only grouse with this book, is the same issue I had with Soulless. Both these books really needed one more round of proof-reading.
Nonetheless, I'd still recommend this book (and series) to fans of this genre, as this is a subject that certainly needs more awareness, and it's also a tale very well told.
This book is very interesting and unputdownable!!! It is fastpacing, thrilling, with a lot of suspense and have many unexpected twists!!
Author tells about how marriage influenced the life of both Sia and Ajay..Both of them lie, hate and manipulate each other but still they feel there is some love that binds them together..They slowly start trusting each other but their urge for revenge acts as a hindrance!!! Whether they are able to overcome it and live happily ever after makes the story interesting!!
Ajay's feelings,manipulations, mistakes, professional success in spite of his traumatic childhood, love for Sia are portrayed well by the author!!
I read soulless and was so much impressed by the writing and the suspense maintained till the end. But the book2 ruthless could have been better. The story is fastpaced, little drag after a while. Totally it's a good book if you are looking for a good story line with suspense.
Having read 'Soulless', the first part of this book I was desperately waiting for the second part to find a closure to the story of Sia. Sia and Ajay, two people who come together for all the wrong reasons like revenge and vengeance start falling in love with each other. Both the protagonists are fighting their own demons while leading their lives as a couple. Ruthless, the part 2 of the story was partly from Ajay's perspective. The book sobsuccintly puts forth the point that every person has their own way of dealing with their past. Some make themselves stronger n go beyond the trauma while some others live in pain and suffering. This book is a very fastpaced almost like a thriller as there are many revelations n twists and turns in the story. There is never a dull moment. The topic of social evil of child sexual abuse and trafficking were dealt with very maturely n the author very neatly portrayed the various traumas both physical and psychological that these children undergo n grow up with. Kudos to the author for highlighting this social evil through the story.
Beautiful ending of this sequel. Like the previous story in the sequel the author had me truly on engrossed in the plot and twists and turns. The plot was strong and fastpaced and total page turner. I had fallen for Ajay's character in Soulless and he didn't cease to impress me with his perfect husband persona in Ruthless. Sia character was as well defined and multifaceted as it was in Soulless . Sad the story has ended it was truly a beautiful and emotional roller coaster with too many twists. Just loved this series. MV kasi doesn't cease to disappoint me . Anyone who wants to read a good story with a solid well defined plot and strong character and unexpected twists with all the added condiments of romance, suspense, drama shouldn't miss this series. Looking forward to what you will be coming up next.
