    One thought on “Ruthless”

    1. Ruthless by Sheila M. Goss Genre: Christian FictionRating: 5.0 StarsRUTHLESS by author Shelia Goss is a modern version of David and Bathsheba. This book is Christian fiction filled with deceit, secrets, and surprises. David King is a renowned business mogul and appreciates the “finest” things in life. He is known for his power and success in the business world…but not so much for being ruthless. Although he is well respected by his friends, business associates, and his staff, David goes to [...]

    2. A modern day rendition of King David & Bathsheba's adulterous relationship. The author stayed on course with the storyline mirroring actions but I never felt a true connection or any depth to the characters. The emotions were painted but never exhibited in authenticity.

    3. Very boring. Very slow read. Modern day spin on the story of King David and Bathsheba. It just did not keep me wanting more.

    4. This book makes you see inside yourself as well as the characters. Goss does a great job when it comes to creating three-dimensional characters that you can relate to. But they also challenge you because no one is what they seem.The male characters were my favorite in the whole book. I loved David because I have a thing for villains or bad boys. David wasn't necessarily bad but he does all he can to get what he wants including going behind his friend and faithful employee, Uriah's back and tryin [...]

    5. Title: Ruthless by Shelia Goss: 5 stars5 Mosaic StonesHeading: How Far Will You Go?The second book Shelia Goss has written, where the main characters are from the Bible, is Ruthless. The first was Delilah; which left me with my mouth hanging wide open at the end. I could not wait to find out what happened to her, but Delilah was not the main character in this new book. Bathsheba “Sheba” Richards, a sophisticated, sexy nurse is married to Uriah Richards, who is trying to give her everything s [...]

Johnson-Bryant– Literary Wonders! Rating: 5 Stars Uriah and Bathsheba Richards are a loving couple residing in Shreveport, Louisiana. Uriah is lucky to have Bathsheba and would do anything to keep her happy, including working hard for media mogul David King. Uriah’s is to get Bathsheba the house of her dreams and to pay for her [...]

    7. I wondered what happened to Delilah from the first Christian fiction novel written by Shelia Goss but she has a cameo appearance in this novel too. Surprised with Delilah's relationship with Bathsheba, the main character in this novel aside from her husband Uriah, and fatal attraction with David King. Side note: I loved David's biblical story and wondered how the author would interweave it in the modern-day story as Goss proposes. I always wondered how Bathsheba (Sheba) would give into David if [...]

    8. It didn't take me long to finish this book at all. I don't usually like re-tellings of bible stories, but this one was really good. The author did a great job in keeping with the original story of David & Bathsheba. In reference to the intimacy of the couple, the author did a great job of making this a "gunk free" book (that's always something that I look for in Christian literature); she made it so that we knew what was going on without going into messy details.I did think that towards the [...]

    9. I think the book is not named correctly. I wouldn't say that one of the main characters is ruthless. He was a successful businessman with two failed marriages to his credit. He coveted another man's wife and sent him to Afghanistan to then work on seducing his wife. David and Bathsheba. Uriah was just the unfortunate husband in the way. David King quoted scripture and even had a spiritual advisor who told him to stay away from Sheba. He followed not the Bible or the advice. It was a quick read b [...]

    10. I may have been turned off by the similarity with David and Bathsheba in the Bible which was an upadated today's version. The plot line did not deal with the material obsession of Sheba which was not dealed with which in my opinion is one which many females struggle with to the point of maximizing their accounts and the suffering of the families as the result of this addiction. But it is a easy read and for pure enjoyment it meets the intent.

    11. I just finished reading this book as our November book club pick. Ruthless is a great book and a quick read. I liked the modern day retelling of the biblical story of David and Bathsheba. My favorite character in the story was David's friend Nathan, who served as his moral compass. Author Shelia Goss is also a great friend to our library, and we love working with her.

    12. Ms. Shelia Goss has done it again. This a great story about love, lust, greed, and betrayal. This is an enjoyable read. I look forward to reading more books from this arthur.

    13. this was a great book. The author did a great job with keeping your attention and making you want to keep reading to see what happens next. Great job Sheila!

    14. This was a great book and I really love how the author used the real characters from the bible. I would recommend this book to anyone that loves Christian fiction.

    15. This was a great story based on the story of King David from the Bible. Some of things I knew where coming and then there were times during the story you just didn't see it coming.

    16. Ruthless.having no pity, merciless, cruel. Read Sheila Goss's book Ruthless to see what I'm talking about.
