    Ruthless Charm is the third and final book in the Ruthless Devils series by Eve L.

These two are also so distinctively different to the other characters/couples in the series that I was wholeheartedly captivated by the beauty in the storytelling. There were moments that I felt like I was right next to the characters as the detail was just so perfectly written. I deeply connected with Mia on a number of levels, and I think that drew me more into the story. Plus the swoon worthiness of Ash, is out of this world. Ruthless Charm was the perfect finale, with each couple's stories entwined and captured through to the right moment in time. I might not have wanted this series to end, as I was fully submerged in the world of the Devils, the emotions and the mystery, but I’ve never felt so completely satisfied with the end of a series. I was left with zero questions, and it was rather lovely having this feeling of completeness. I know in the coming months that I’ll definitely be re-reading the Ruthless Devils series, and I think it will stay as a favourite series from Eve L. Mitchell. Eve L. Mitchell has honestly outdone herself with the storytelling of the Ruthless Devils series, and Ruthless Charm was the lighthearted bow we needed to wrap up these books. Ruthless Heart, was intoxicating. Ruthless Desire, absolutely broke me. Ruthless Charm, captured my heart.

    Ruthless Charm is the last book of “The Ruthless Devils” trilogy, and it tells the story of Ash and Mia—a very interesting duo. Mia, she was sort of a drama queen for some moments, but she’s also an amazing character and a girl that’s, after all, lonely and not used to being told what to do. And Ash… well, he’s the devil, isn't he? He is a playboy yes, but he isn't just that, he has much more layers than I was expecting to.

While the Devils are taking care of Ava and Quinn, Ash moves in with Mia, and spending time together led them to see that, maybe, they could more—this situation led them to see beyond the bedroom. This duo matches in an imperfect perfect way. They both have their imperfections, they're both stubborn (as hell), but their connection, their chemistry and the ability they have to understand each other is insanely unique. Plus, it was such a pleasure to see Jett, Grey, Ava, and Quinn having “important” roles throughout the book. I adored the dynamic between them. And the loyalty and friendship existent between the Devils gotta be highlighted by me because I absolutely love it. Reading this book was certainly an amazing and incredible experience.

The Devils are still trying to find out who is targeting women on campus and they're not going to let one of their girlfriend's best friends live by herself. Ruthless Charm is the third book in the Ruthless Devils series and I would not recommend reading it by itself. This series has really been great. The overall story arc was interesting and I felt as though most of my questions had been answered. The characters, in this story in particular, were just wonderful together. The chemistry between the two of them is fantastic and it made for super hot smexy times. Ash is super laid back, a flirt and a player who is completely full of himself. Mia is a redheaded firecracker who is wound up to the max. He drives her nuts. She drove him nuts. In the end, they really were supportive of each other and their needs. Super awesome read. PS. I'm REALLY hoping Onyx get's his own book, lol 😉

    This is Ash and Mia story and I absolutely adored it so much. The banter between these two is hilarious and There was times I got frustrated with them but that’s like one of my favorite things. I love all the feelings. The Devils are major alphaholes that I enjoyed so much. I love getting bits from each couple and seeing them all together. I absolutely enjoyed this series so so much! Each book flows so well together and you get the answers you need as well as get a look at each individual couple. This is Ash and Mia story and I absolutely adored it so much.

I'm so sad that Ruthless Charm is the last book in The Ruthless Devils series. I'm really attached to all the characters, I loved reading their stories and I loved the overall story line in all three books. Like the two previous books, Ruthless Charm was an amazing book. This entire series is so addictive, well-written and has amazing characters.  Ruthless Charm tells the story of Mia and Ash, and I'm so glad that I could finally read about them. Since all the stuff happened with Quinn, I really wanted to know how Ash was feeling and what he was thinking about. I was also really interested in Mia because she didn't always seem like a good friend, but now I understand her a bit more. I really liked reading about Mia and Ash, and seeing them fall for each other. Ruthless Charm was such a good book, and I really enjoyed reading it. I finished this book in one day because it was that good. I'm so happy that I discoverd Eve L. Mithcell's books and I'm so excited to read more of her books. I'm also really hoping that we're getting a book about Onyx. PLEASEEEE! If you're looking for a Sports Romance/College Romance series with spicy scenes and an interesting plot, then I highly recommend The Ruthless Devils series!

    I’m absolutely obsessed with these Devils & their alpha females! Also… the amazing ability Eve has of capturing my full attention from page one until the book is done! This book, and every book I’ve read that she’s written so far, is always so well written and in such a way that the emotions feel so real. I become so enthralled in the book that I can’t function in my real life until I’ve finished. I feel so invested in the characters it’s hard to let go.

After the emotional ride in book 2, i loved the flirty banter between Mia and Ash- i had a good chuckle in parts and loved Mias substitute swear words 😆... Without spilling the beans- Ash really surprised me, i wasnt expecting to love him as much as i do plus the "episodes" was an eye opener. Touché Eve.

    Ruthless Charm is the highly anticipated final book in this author’s riveting The Ruthless Devils trilogy and it lived up to all of my expectations and then some! I devoured this book in practically one sitting and was left with an epic book hangover. A renowned playboy, a reluctant roommate, challenged friendships, and suspense made this college sports romance a splendid read. Ash is positively charming and I couldn’t help but love him! I wouldn’t say he is as dark as Grey and Jett, but he does Ruthless Charm is the highly anticipated final book in this author’s riveting The Ruthless Devils trilogy and it lived up to all of my expectations and then some! I devoured this book in practically one sitting and was left with an epic book hangover. A renowned playboy, a reluctant roommate, challenged friendships, and suspense made this college sports romance a splendid read. Ash is positively charming and I couldn’t help but love him! I wouldn’t say he is as dark as Grey and Jett, but he does have his moments! He is powerful, exudes confidence, and is kind hearted, but he also has his vulnerabilities. Mia is Ava’s (from Ruthless Heart) best friend and college roommate and I really enjoyed getting to learn more about her. Ash frequently exasperates her, always riling her up and yet she also frustrates Ash to no end. There were so many things going on with Mia that she was easy to identify with. At times, I didn’t know if I wanted to shake her or hug her! These two were perfect together and the author did an excellent job when it came to their character development and evolution of their relationship. This author is an expert in crafting an original story that captures the reader’s attention right from the beginning. Her uniqueness of characters keep things interesting as they are definitely not cookie-cutter heroes and heroines that one often sees in this genre. Her characters are strong and yet they are perfectly flawed and make mistakes. All of which makes them relatable. Not to mention, I like how they act their actual ages as they are developing more mature relationships, but also discovering their own identifies. It was such a treat to see Jett, Ava, Grey, and Quinn play predominant roles throughout the book. I loved the dynamic between all of them. Ruthless Charm isn’t quite as dark or as angsty as the previous two novels, but this was very fitting for Ash and Mia’s story. That is not to say this book isn’t chalk full of drama. Emotions run high in this novel and the author masterfully achieves that perfect balance of angst, steam, suspense, and even some moments of levity. Ruthless Charm is book 3 in this author’s The Ruthless Devils trilogy. While it is Ash and Mia’s story, it cannot be read as a standalone. The underlying plot that’s been threaded throughout the series was well executed and I really liked how the author tied things up. It is bittersweet because I am reluctant to say goodbye to these characters as I have become so attached to them, but I do believe the author has done them justice. I voluntarily read an early version of this book. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.

There are some dark moments still, as the full circumstances surrounding what happened to Quinn, and what the boys found afterwards, are brought to light. We also get a sense of despair from Mia, with her relationship with her mom, and her sadness at the growing bond between Ava and Quinn. I'm still on the fence about Onyx. His loyalty to his brothers and cousin keeps me from completely writing him off. We'll see where his story goes. Hopefully Eve will also give us a glimpse of our Devils out in the wild.

    There is something to be said about Eve L. Mitchell and the characters that she writes. She writes them flawed, real and full of emotions and honestly I have to say how refreshing it truly is. She creates these book worlds that you become completely consumed by and maybe a little bit more than sad when you have leave them. That surely was the case with Ruthless Charm; I absolutely loved the Devils and I was not ready for their journey to end.

Both had their imperfections, their defense mechanisms and boy were they STUBBORN BUT their connection, their ability to truly understand each other (even when everyone else didn't) was amazing. Mia is thrust into all the devil's drama, and although at times she came across a bit selfish her reactions were very relatable and brutally honest (I liked that about her), when pushed she pushed back. And Ash, I was not expecting him to have so many layers, to be more than "the playboy"... his sweetness, his unwavering loyalty... I honestly loved everything about him. Dare I say it but he might be my favorite devil. I cannot tell you enough how much I absolutely loved Ruthless Charm! Threats are resolved, situations from past books are addressed & friendships are mended. ALL the feels in Ruthless Charm! SO GOOD!

    Well... talk about another book hangover. Another series by Eve L. Mitchell comes to an end, and I'm just sitting here, looking around, trying to figure out what to do with my life.

I'll be honest--I'm a fan of one night stand stories. First, because it's just a hilarious subject that we can all relate to... and second, because it makes me realize that none of my one night stands were ever so interesting. Only Eve L. Mitchell could write a series in a genre that I have always avoided (alphahole sports romance!) and make me a simp. And while my heart will always belong to Gray... I definitely have a soft spot for Ash. Check out this series... you'll not be disappointed.

    4* Mia has a strange relationship with the Devils especially after her best friend Ava is now dating Jett. Ash has been warned to keep away from Mia to avoid complications but the chemistry is strong between them. The threat is still real and Ash is sent to protect Mia, but she certainly gives him the run around, confessions are made, help is offered & questions are answered. Another great story.

This is college sophomores Ash Santo, and Mia Davis’ story line. RUTHLESS CHARM should not be read as a stand alone as many of the events of Ruthless Charm are as of a direct result of the events in book two Ruthless Desire. WARNING: Due to the nature of the story line premise, there may be triggers for more sensitive readers. NOTE: If you have not read book two, there may be spoilers in my review. Told from dual first person perspectives (Ash and Mia) RUTHLESS CHARM follows in the wake of an attack against Quinn (Ruthless Desire) and the lingering threats to our story line heroine. Now that Gray’s girlfriend Quinn, and Jett’s girlfriend Ava, are more or less living part time with their respective loves, Mia finds herself at the mercy and protection of Ash Santo when he is forced by his cousins to live with our story line heroine but Ash and Mia’s previous one-night stand left a lingering emotional upheaval, and their attraction to one another is masked by disdain and anger. While Mia’s freedom is curtailed, she finds herself at a crossroads going forward but the need for personal autonomy forces Mia into questionable actions, actions that may threaten her life going forward. What ensues is the building but acrimonious relationship between Ash and Mia, and the potential fall-out as the cousins begins to unravel the who, what and why of a campus predator. The relationship between Ash and Mia is tempestuous at best as Mia struggles with the invasion of her privacy, and the potential loss of friendship as her bestie Quinn is quickly pulling away. Ash doesn’t like the separation from his cousins or the forced proximity to the nineteen year old woman that pushes all of his buttons but the palpable, sexual attraction can no longer be denied, and in the end, our heroine will suffer when rumors and innuendo threaten her hard fought stability. Mia’s reputation at Cardinal Saints College is questionable and unwarranted, and in the end, Mia refuses to bow to the smear campaign that could ruin her life. The $ex scenes are intimate and seductive without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. The secondary and supporting characters include the return of Jett and Ava, Gray and Quinn, their brother Onyx Santo, as well as musicians Shane and Wade from Atticus Dawn. The power the cousins wield at Cardinal Saints College reflects in their attitudes; the young men and women are often naïve and immature directing vitriol and hate at every opportunity. I believe the author has plans for a spin off focusing on Onyx Santo. RUTHLESS CHARM is a story of power and betrayal, vengeance and hate, family, friendships, relationships and love. The premise is edgy and dramatic; the romance is spicy; the characters are wounded, spirited and energetic.

    With trouble still lurking around them, the Devils have decided that none of them are safe, including Mia. And while she appreciates their concern she is also not so sure about living with Ash, he pushes her buttons like no one else, and she's not so sure they will survive being confined together. But it's what is going to keep her safe and what will make her concerned friend happy, so she goes along with it. Not realizing it's about to change every bit of her life... for the better! Between the With trouble still lurking around them, the Devils have decided that none of them are safe, including Mia. And while she appreciates their concern she is also not so sure about living with Ash, he pushes her buttons like no one else, and she's not so sure they will survive being confined together. But it's what is going to keep her safe and what will make her concerned friend happy, so she goes along with it. Not realizing it's about to change every bit of her life... for the better! Between the pages of Ruthless Charm you will meet two people that despise one another most days, but can occasionally find common ground here and there too. They knew living with one another would bring out the worst in one another, arguing at every turn, but what they didn't expect was bringing out the best in one another too. They maybe different from most angles, but they seem to understand one another on levels that no one else every really has before. They compliment each other, where one is lacking the other makes up for it. It's a unconventional union, but one that also makes perfect sense. In each other they found someone that they could trust, rely one, love, and that was foreign for both of them, as they have never really had that before. But as scary as it maybe to them, it's something they don't want to let go of... it's that once in a lifetime kind of love. I thoroughly enjoyed what these two brought to the pages, there were moments that made me laugh, ones that squeezed my heart, and a few that made me blush... it was a perfectly balanced love story. This one wasn't as dark and angsty as the first two installments, it was more humorous and light-hearted, and ended the series on a perfect note! I truly loved every moment of it, highly recommend! I requested an advanced copy of this title from the publisher, and I am voluntarily leaving my honest and unbiased opinion.

    I will always love Jett. And always adore Gray's attitude....but I think, just barely, that Ash is my favorite! His an Mia's story was the beautiful little bow on the series to me.

    This the 3rd and final book in the Ruthless Devils series and is Ash's and Mia's story. I've been waiting for this couple since book 1 and it did not disappoint. This book starts immediately after the ending of book 2 where Gray walks in on Ash and Mia *cough* together. Ash's and Mia's story is lighter than the first two books. I'd still consider it "dark" given the overall series storyline, but it's decidedly less dark than Jet/Ava and Gray/Quinn stories which makes sense since both Ash and Mia This the 3rd and final book in the Ruthless Devils series and is Ash's and Mia's story. I've been waiting for this couple since book 1 and it did not disappoint. This book starts immediately after the ending of book 2 where Gray walks in on Ash and Mia *cough* together. Ash's and Mia's story is lighter than the first two books. I'd still consider it "dark" given the overall series storyline, but it's decidedly less dark than Jet/Ava and Gray/Quinn stories which makes sense since both Ash and Mia are decidedly less dark characters. They're the fun ones in their respective groups. They're the lives of the party, but we learn in this book that fun does not always equate to happy. They are both struggling with their own demons and insecurities that are very similar... not that anyone would know because they keep those parts of themselves locked down. Although the circumstances that force them together are serious, their living situation is amusing. They've been casually hooking up and now they have to live with each other for a bit. It was never meant to be anything serious, so having to live together is awkward. Let's just say neither of them is happy about it. Their growing pains as roommates are entertaining. Just thinking about the shower situation makes me giggle. Their sexual chemistry is off the charts. Their general banter although biting, was also fun to read. Mia gets the short end of the stick through most of this book. Not because of Ash, but because of Jett and Gray. There were several times throughout the book where I wanted to reach through the pages and just slap each of them. They were downright cruel to Mia and it was awful. Ash is still reeling from the revelation of Gray and Quinn being together romantically and the betrayal and exclusion he feels for being the last to know. Mia is feeling left out as her best friend Ava starts spending more and more time with the Devils. Ash and Mia are perfect for each other. It just takes them both a LONG time to figure that out. It was so worth the read to see them get there. The conclusion of the overall series plot was not something I saw coming. At. All. Mia and Onyx's interaction at the end of the book was interesting. We haven't met a single female in this series that Onyx has been nice to yet, but here we are. I'm looking forward to (hopefully) an Onyx book soon. These are the first books I've read by Eve Mitchell and I will definitely be reading more. I highly recommend this series.

    I liked this one better than the second in the series, Ash is a likeable guy. (book cover tag line says merciless and devious but I think that is a big stretch) Mia had her moments of greatness but it was overshadowed by her big moments of personal failure that come with her drinking and insecurities. That said, this book felt like the most realistic based on 19 year olds and their general level of emotional intelligence. Unfortunately, we also get more of Gray's mean spirited, judgmental, nobod I liked this one better than the second in the series, Ash is a likeable guy.

That said, this book felt like the most realistic based on 19 year olds and their general level of emotional intelligence. Unfortunately, we also get more of Gray's mean spirited, judgmental, nobody asked you, "tough love" which makes him no better than he was in book 2. He's not learning anything and he's okay with that and it's gross. Ash was more interesting after his disorder reveal but coming so late in the book it made me feel like a lot of the pacing was off in this book. Additionally, the author flirts with the beginnings of some kinky desires in the last two books but doesn't delve into it which made the sex scenes anticlimactic (pun intended) and leads to more pacing issues which felt even more out of sync in this book. There is a lot more room for follow up books on these kids. There is real life obstacles heading their way and I'm not sure how such a codependent friendship/familial relationship like Jett, Gray and Ash have will handle them. In the second book, I didn't think I'd ever read the book that was so clearly coming for Onxy but this one smoothed him out a bit and not I'm... intrigued.

    Impressed by the final story in this series, dreading the ending only because it would mean the end of the Devils, which was in no way something encouraging for the book harem heart. Destined for greatness, the Devils are, if they can just stay ahead of the trouble that's after them and keep everyone safe. Thrown into living together, Ash and Mia must find a way to co-exist without destroying each other or falling for one another. Trying their hardest, they can only manage one....

Thrown into living together, Ash and Mia must find a way to co-exist without destroying each other or falling for one another. Trying their hardest, they can only manage one.... As with the other books in the series, the Devils are playing with powers greater than them which is now affecting Mia, moreover she's not going to make it easy on Ash, who's tapped for babysitting duty. Just enough of an outsider to not know what's going on, Mia very resistant to Ash's babysitting duty while not taking anything seriously at first. Starting out with mutual aggravation as they fight their attraction to one another, their story me engaged with how it didn't feel formulaic or forced, instead it felt like being pulled into their private little world. Hooked, the ride was wild while having an ending that left me satisfied while somehow hoping for more! As additions to the harem, Mia and Ash join the rest of the Devils in their house entertaining the masses!!

I have definitely found a new favorite author for my one-click list. The spicy scenes were epic not to mention the connection that was prevalent within the friends and the Devils with their counterparts. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves a man who pulls off alphahole effortlessly while embracing the heart within. This is my honest opinion, freely given.

    Ash and Mia were a fun couple, which—let’s be honest—we needed after Eve had put us through the emotional wringer that was Quinn and Gray’s book. For all intents and purposes, Ash was not as cold as I expected him to be. Sure, he gives off a fun and playful vibe but I expected a little bit more resistance to reforming his ways. He has the protective, loyal, and slightly possessive caveman act perfected. Mia... Stubborn, opinionated, smart and sassy. A perfect match for Ash's banter.

It was nice to finally see some closure in terms of the things that were uncovered in the last book - I enjoyed the way it induced some extra drama into the story. I'll be waiting patiently for Onyx's book. He is cunning, ruthless, and just plain savage at times - it'll be so gratifying to see him fall. I'm giving this book 4.5 stars. I highly recommend this entire series, it is fantastic.
