NEW REVIEW: Runing You (Ruining, #2) by Nicole Reed

Ruining You
by Nicole Reed
Barnes & Noble

For a girl who dared to tempt death, living is the only promise that matters now.

Jay’s life almost came to a forced end when her darkest secrets were revealed and the one who she chose to give her future to was ripped away. Now, everything she kept hidden is the topic of everyone’s conversation, and not all are sympathetic. Someone wants her horrific past to dictate her future, and another is determined to help her choose a different path.

In conclusion to Ruining Me, Kane and Rhye know that Jay is worth the fight, but waiting for her to find herself may ruin them all.

My Review


It all started with a "WHAT THE HELL" and ended with an overwhelming sense of closure. I didn't love Ruining You as much as Ruining Me (hence the 3.5~Stars), but Nicole Reed definitely showed amazing growth as a writer. I think the reason I am partial to book one is because of the smothering, gut wrenching emotion I was left with after reading Ruining Me.

Ruining You left me with emotions, but they were different. They were emotions of healing...closure. I didn't hurt like I did in book one, I healed. Damn, I sound like such a masochist.

This is truly a remarkable series. What's perfect isn't the writing, the characters, or the hot-damn sex, but the perfection is found in feeling.

Sure it had things I didn't like. Jay's back and forth between Rhye and Kane. The sex (even though it was pantie-tastic) often times seemed a bit misplaced, and of course my complete indifference about the big plot twist in the end. It was a twist for sure, but I would have loved to have gotten more of what happened in the aftermath instead of going straight to the epilogue.

So yeah, this book wasn't perfect, but it was a story that was able to shine through it's imperfections. A story that took me on one mind numbing ride. A story that took me to hell and back, but gave me closure. Everything happened as it should, and for that I am extremely thankful.
