Ricky Ruiz—ruthless kingpin, reclusive heir, the one man I can’t seem to outrun.

Rumors buzz when a pic of me buying a pregnancy test goes viral. This wouldn’t be such a big deal if, roughly one month ago, I wasn’t also spotted with the new top-dog of Cypress Pointe’s most notorious crime family.

The same crime family my father dedicated his entire law enforcement career trying to bring to their knees.

Ricky inherited the money, the houses, the cars, but he also inherited the danger. He sleeps with one eye open and one finger on the trigger. So, when my name starts popping up alongside his on social media, the beast awakens, convinced there’s now a target on my back, too.

He’s not big on patience or subtlety, which I realize when I come home to find him waiting in a dark corner of my apartment, in no mood for a debate. He’s on a mission to collect what he believes is his.


My father warned me about the Ruiz family. If I’d listened, I might not be locked in a room inside Ricky’s home, I’d still have the job he decided to quit for me, and I’d still have my freedom.

I have no plans to be Ricky’s caged bird. Not even with an army of street soldiers at his disposal. He’d beg to differ. According to him, it’s just a matter of time before I give in and admit what he claims to have known from the beginning.

That I’m already his.


Trigger Warning: Ricky lives up to his reputation, so if you’re sensitive to excessive, explicit violence, you might want to pass this one up. There are also situations that may be triggering for those who have experienced pregnancy-related trauma. Reader discretion is advised.


SEXY BEAST is a full-length standalone novel (95k+ words). This book can absolutely be read on its own, but for the sake of flow and clarity, you could start with THE GOLDEN BOYS (a bully romance trilogy within this series).

Are you into hot romances with alpha-male crime bosses? Then, you’ll love getting to know Ricky Ruiz.

Due to adult themes and sexual situations, this one’s only for the 18+ crowd.

Overall Opinion :

Another book in this series is with me!! I have been addicted to this series ever since I got a glimpse of Blue and The golden boys. Ricky was amazing as a side character, so now seeing him as the main one was one of the most anticipated moments for me.

This one is a one night stand pregnancy romance with a mafia edge. Ricky was a dark hero who had to adapt to a life filled with violence. But that was not him. He never had any problem being the dangerous one though. When he got to know that he made Dez pregnant, the only thing on his mind was getting her to be his. He had a lot of enemies and the last thing he wanted was for one of them to get them both.

The last thing dex wanted was to be a prisoner of Ricky. He didn't have a good reputation and his dangerous life scared her. He was too much to accept, if only he didn't make her feel something. Resisting the man who drove her crazy might be one of the most challenging tasks for her.

Definitely recommending this one to all the dark romance loving people out there! Ricky is crazy and this book was definitely a tad bit darker than the rest, but I loved it all the same. I hope we get more from these characters in the future.
