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.
Ruined is the first book I have read by Tracy Wolff and I thought it was an enjoyable read! Right from the very beginning I was pulled into this story and knew it was going to be a hell of a ride, and it certainly was it was filled with passion, emotion and also heartache.
Chloe has had a tough life and in the last five years has taken control of her life, away from her family and the ghosts of her past. She is determined to do it on her own and the first step is the summer internship at Frost industries. What she didn't expect was a trip to the cafeteria to grab a smoothie would change life as she knew it.
Chloe is a character that I really liked. She seems driven and wants to succeed. But as the story unfolds we see how deep her flaws go. When I knew all the details, my heart broke for her as she was abandoned by the people that should've had her back no matter what. Ethan is a bit mysterious in his own way. He is very successful and very available. The flirting and banter between these characters was entertaining, especially where the blender was involved!!
Tracy Wolff has a writing style that is easy to read and I quite enjoyed. The book is told from only Chloe’s POV, so we were never able to get Ethan’s secrets. The plot was fun and the passion between these characters is undeniable. The epilogue however made my jaw bit the floor and I want the next book in the series now!! I am eager to see how things will go now all the dirty laundry has been aired.
I received a copy of this book from the Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
