I am going to tell you about a series I just finished and loved. It is 2 books that are around 200 pages, making it a good read or 2 quick reads. I was very glad that both books were already released so I did not have to wait to get the HEA.
Ruining Me by Nicole Reed
Blurb: Eighteen year old Jay Stevenson is living a horrible nightmare.
Two years ago, she had the world in the palm of her hand, but in one moment, it was ruined. Secrets, lies, and the worst imaginable betrayal haunt her new reality. Burying her problems under a cold façade seems to be the only way to cope until it all catches up with her. Soon, she loses control of the lonely world she built around her, and the past, present, and future collide.
Three guys are there when it all comes crashing down: JT, the perfect boyfriend she never wanted to give up; Rhye, the local bad boy “rock star” who made her forget the past; and Kane, the funny and sweet tattooed bartender who wants her future.
Secrets must be kept. Choices must be made. Is it possible to move forward while still chained to the wicked vices of the past?
Rating: 5 stars
Wow… This book was intense! I have one major problem with this book and that’s the love triangle. I did not like Jay’s choice, I also think the ending was a cop out. Now with that being said this book was amazing and it reminds me so much of Reason To Breathe. I was pretty sure of what her nightmares were and it was still shocking. I loved Kane and Rhye they both were great guys. I was never too fond of JT but I think it was how he was introduced to us and then I just thought he was trying to get her back now that she was happy. This story has the most incredible ending and while its the first in a series the ending is not as nail biting as Reason To Breathe. I love this book and will be reading the sequel asap!
Ruining You by Nicole Reed
Blurb: 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.

God this series is amazing! I just cannot help but love it. You must read the first book before this one but you will be rewarded by a great journey of healing and love. With out ruining the first book all I can say is this series is worth the heartache and the end result is a book that has left its mark. The author did a fantastic job with Jay’s pain and the emotions she had and then took us through to the healed woman at the end. This series is a must read!
Here is the link to Reason To Breathe by Rebecca Donovan because it is an amazing series and everyone should read it. Be warned that it is not a complete series yet with the last book due out in July.
Thank you so much, Amanda!! 🙂 Writing Jay’s story was hard, but so worth it!! 🙂 Thanks again for this awesome review!!!
