With her heart literally in his hands, Celia will have to try and bargain with a devil.
Edward Fasbender is my captor.
Trapped on this island he owns everything on–including, it seems, me.
He told me he would break me, but I thought he meant in the bedroom. It turns out Edward is playing a completely different game.
And he won’t stop until he’s ruined me.

I remember how devastated I was after reading the first book, Rivalry. I mean after that HUGE cliffy, I now found myself reading book 2 scared off my mind. After releasing book 1, Laurelin Paige had a support group on FB and I knew that ought to be more like me.
Ruin focuses on the relationship between Celia and Edward, and boy oh boy, how intense he is. Every single time you thought maybe he’s not that bad… he fought back. It was brilliant to feel how Celia might feel every time she though she made progress with him and then he took gazillions of steps back.
This back and forth between them felt like ages!!! And in a good way, because they really do have a background of baggage which had to be sorted through and that takes time.
I don’t want to give spoilers, but to give you something I can say there is no bad cliffhanger this time, so enjoy your read. It’s fantastic and mind blowing and really effing intense.
Every word, every sentence, I’ve felt it.. and my connection to this series stands strong. I can’t wait for the rest of the two books to come out and I am really grateful to have been given an ARC. Relax, just for book 2. Fingers crossed on the rest since I’m still in the dark!
I always try to predict the series, but honestly, I don’t really know how everything will unfold. Just to say Celia has become a better person is surreal. This is something only a very gifted author can do: to redeem a heroine you learned to hate, and now ache for her. Ache, scream, cry…
