Release Blitz + ARC Review: ‘The Ruthless Groom’ by Monica Murphy

The Ruthless Groom by Monica Murphy is NOW LIVE!


I didn’t plan to marry a reclusive heiress. Lucky for me, I find myself attracted to my beautiful new bride. Our arranged marriage connects two powerful companies. That we’re compatible between the sheets is a bonus, but I didn’t bargain on her ex showing up at the wedding reception uninvited.

That pushed me right over the edge.

I protect what’s mine, and Charlotte is now mine, whether she likes it or not. Our honeymoon is a disaster in paradise. I’m angry. She’s resentful. All those swirling emotions explode in the most physical ways.

But even as I’m drawn closer to my new wife, there’s still a threat looming out there. Seamus McTiernan is determined to destroy what we’ve created.

I won’t let anything tear us apart.

He has no idea who he’s dealing with. I will end him.

4 ‘I want you to trust me’ Stars!

ARC provided via Valentine PR in exchange for an honest review.

Perry Constantine and Charlotte Lancaster are back and trust me, you don’t want to miss their spicy and dramatic honeymoon! Yes, do make sure to read this book/review after The Reluctant Bride, I don’t want to ruin your experience with my spoilers lol So yeah, after that cliffhanger in the first book I was more than ready to come back to this love story and Monica Murphy did not disappoint.

So, as I mentioned, The Ruthless Groom is the second installment in the Arranged Marriage Trilogy, focused on the now marriage between two very powerful families. Perry and Charlotte are now husband and wife and their honeymoon is not the typical one. There is Seamus McTiernan in the way and that makes things difficult and intense between this couple. However, it also connects them and brings a whole lot of steam between them so let’s find out what will be stronger: their arrangement or their feelings?

I want him to see me like this. I’m his wife now.
I want him to treat me like one. As if I’m his.
And no one else’s.

This book is a great continuation to the first installment. The Ruthless Groom is all about the impossible-to-ignore chemistry between Perry and Charlotte. I mean.. the STEAM. Holy cow! Perry is a massive jerk sometimes but he is a freaking sexy one. I loved how the connection between these two continues developing (despite the obstacles on their way) and how this apparent arranged marriage is turning into something else. Again, we have another cliffhanger in the end and it’s even bigger than in the first book so let’s just say, I need the final installment yesterday!

She’s the most valuable thing in the world. My world.

Therefore, I am rating The Ruthless Groom with 4 STARS because it sure got me even more addicted to this series and this wonderful couple. I am more than ready to know what is happening next and how that will affect the relationship between Perry and Charlotte. Thank God, we don’t have to wait very long for the third and final installment!
