Ruthless by Carolyn Lee Adams

From Goodreads:
A spine-tingling debut about the ultimate game of cat-and-mouse in reverse as a teen struggles to retain hope—and her sanity—while on the run from a cunning and determined killer.

Ruth Carver has always competed like her life depends on it. Ambitious. Tough. Maybe even mean. It’s no wonder people call her Ruthless.

When she wakes up with a concussion in the bed of a moving pickup trick, she realizes she has been entered into a contest she can’t afford to lose.

At a remote, rotting cabin deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Ruth’s blindfold comes off and she comes face-to-face with her captor. A man who believes his mission is to punish bad girls like Ruth. A man who has done this six times before.

The other girls were never heard from again, but Ruth won’t go down easy. She escapes into the wilderness, but her hunter is close at her heels. That’s when the real battle begins. That’s when Ruth must decides just how far she’ll go in order to survive.

My Review:
This book is intense. It is dark and action packed.

Things I liked:
1) Ruth- Wow what a strong, brave and all around great character. This poor girl endured some horrible things.

2) I always enjoy flashbacks and of course I enjoyed them in this story as well.

3) Finally an ending I was satisfied with. I have been reading a lot lately and endings have been blah but dang this ending was great.

Things I Was Not Fond Of:

1) The length- Although I really enjoyed this book I still would have loved it if it was longer. I feel like some things were kind of rushed. 

I would recommend this if you like psychological thrillers at all. A quick read but very action packed.

My rating: ♥♥♥♥

*I received this on a read an review basis from Edelweiss*
