Fans of Fifty Shades of Grey, Bared to You, and Release Me will be hooked on Ruined, an electrifying journey of emotional and sexual discovery that pushes two damaged souls to their breaking point—and beyond.
He’s the last man Chloe Girard should love . . . but the first she ever could.
Ethan Frost is a visionary, a genius, every woman’s deepest, darkest fantasy—even mine. And, somehow, I am his.
He stole into my life like a dream. Turned my reality upside down and made my every desire come true—especially those I never knew I had. He demanded everything I had to give and gave me everything of himself in return.
But dreams don’t last forever, and ours is no exception. Because my nightmares are darker, and my wounds deeper, than I could ever reveal. And as much as Ethan wants to protect me, the secrets we we share will only tear us apart.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from other Loveswept titles.
You all know that I’m a huge fan of Tracy! I mean seriously, I’ll read everything she puts out there. I absolutely loved Ruined! It’s got all the sexy scenes without all the crazy sex.
So my only complaint is that these two characters haven’t known each other long at all before being all into each other. But other than that I loved the intensity of the journey Ethan and Chloe have started on. Both characters are extremely likeable. Chloe is trying to do things on her own while on this internship. She doesn’t want her family helping her with anything. Ethan is the head of a corporation, but he’s very down to earth, and has a great heart.
I will say that I didn’t predict the major twist until I was 65-70% in to Ruined. It’s been a while since a book has brought a tear to my eye, but Wolff managed to do it with this book. Emotions run high, and the scenes that caused them are very painful. If you have issues with rape, it is mentioned, but it’s not very graphic. Tracy Wolff did the intimate scenes very well. There wasn’t once where I cringed, and thought “yeah right.” The sex scenes are believable for the average couple, which I am grateful for.
I can’t wait for the next installment of this series because holy shit, cliffhanger. So hopefully we don’t have to wait too long to see what’s happening in Chloe and Ethan’s world.
