Nicole Reed's Ruining You Blog Tour


Today is my stop for Nicole Reed's Ruining You Blog Tour hosted by those lovely ladies over at Flirty & Dirty Book Blog! If you haven't read Nicole's Ruining Me OH MY GOSH you so need to do so ASAP! This series chewed me up and spit me out and left me wanting MORE! I loved both Ruining Me & Ruining You! It is a FANTASTIC series that I  HIGHLY recommend...................



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.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ruining You is the second book in the series.... My review will show you EXACTLY what I felt during reading this AWESOMESAUCE book!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Whew, where do I even start :) When Nicole contacted me and asked if I would like an arc of Ruining You I was beside my self with giddiness and...................................................................... I had been anxiously awaiting Ruining You ever since I finished Ruining Me. If you've read the first book then you know it was a big WTH momement when I finished. I was like did I just read that, NO FREAKING WAY,this was totally me................................................ The story begins with Jay trying to come to terms with everything that happened following the big secret she kept to herself for two years. The loss of JT and the attempt to take her own life leads Jay to voluntarily stay in in-therapy treatment. I have to admit I shed TONS OF TEARS throughout the first part of the book. It was gut-wrenching to watch Jay try to come to terms with JT's death and to get to a point where she was able to realize it wasn't her fault. While in therapy she meets Eli, man did I love him! Eli is EXACTLY what Jay needed and with his friendship and advice she was able to move forward and return home. Eli's story also broke my heart. As Jay states he was the guys guy and the girls at the center always had their eyes on him. At first I thought OH CRAP here we go again and I seriously was doing this........ But thankfully Eli was exactly what Jay needed, a friend, and only a friend. While Jay was in therapy she did receive letters from her friends and that includes Kane! She never responded to him and after three months apart with no communication I was worried. I wondered if Jay was going to let him go for good and Kane well if he moved on. Did he? Well you have to read this to find out my friends. But when Jay arrives home there is Molly, Reed, Eli and Cal waiting for her. Oh Cal, he was in the car with JT the night of the accident and when Jay first see's him well I guarantee you will.................................... Cal is absolutely AMAZING!!!! I would love to see him get his own story, hint, hint! Kane is there and when he speaks with Jay to tell her he stopped by to see her but he had to leave well my gosh I just................................................................... I can't really give you too much more without giving the whole thing away! I will tell you the issues with Coach Branch and an upcoming trail is so well explained and the emotions Jay goes through and the decision to testify or not was so well written I felt as if I was reading something that truly happened. My boy, Rhye, oh yeah I love that rocker boy. He's in the picture :) Yep, he's around and when she goes to one of his shows I was dying when he was singing, well I'm not going to lie I was........................ This is a very well written second story!!! There is plenty of twists and you wonder for a time will Jay end up with Kane or Rhye or will she end up alone? Does she accept JT's death and let him go? She's able to speak with JT's mother and again I had tears streaming down my face. To read a story with the loss of a loved one and especially at such a young age and the tragic consequences of his actions as well as what Jay lived with for the past two years was totally gut-wrenching and absolutely heart breaking but so wonderfully well written that there is no way you won't be affected by this. So what did I expereince while reading this, well there was a lot of... but no worries, there was some of this................................. and oh just wait there was this........................................ and at the end of the book I received the closure I needed and I was totally................................................................ Is this a 5 star book for me? HECK NO this is a 5+++++++++++++++++ more than that for me! I cried, cried, sobbed and was a snotty mess. I had the hanging on the seat of my pants moments. I had oh my that's HOT moments and I definetly had the big arse cheesey grin when I was done. I was so damn excited when I got to the end that I was like a kid all sugared up :) Nicole you my dear have done it! This is it I guarantee this will skyrocket up the charts this book is aca-freaking-fantasticly-amazing! Kudos to you and here's to you......................................... I can't wait to read more of your works! I adore Nicole's writing style and her absolute gift of pulling the reader into the story! I swear I felt like I was living this and I loved every single minute of it!!
