I have read only one book by Jus Accrado and that was Darker Days and I loved it. Ruined is NOTHING like Darker Days. First I believe its considered New Adult and maybe Pararomance and it’s amazing! I loved it from start to finish, who wouldn’t? A man who was born with a daemon and has to basically share his body? I loved that we have basically a Cain and Able story going on because it centers around two twin brothers (one Bad one good) and their hatred/ love for one another. Throw in some violence and a snarky yet lovable Women and you get the making of an awesome series.
The book is in dual POV’s from Jax to Samantha, the girl who has known both brothers since they were both young. One is her best friend and one she has loved since she was fourteen (guess which one). Jax is the epitome of town bad boy, if something bad happened it was usually him, or so the town thinks.
“The sound of your voice makes me sick. I want to physically rip you to shreds each time you open your gooddamned trap. You’ve always been careless, but are you suicidal too?”
When they were kids they were best friends and as they got older something shifted and they fell in love, but when Jax left it all shifted.
Samantha is in hiding from something that happened while at college and is still battling her own daemons and when Jax comes back to town and it seems as though whatever made her run from college is following her.
The chemistry between Jax and Samantha was one part Snarky, one part shared history and ALL hot. When it was both of them they burned it up.
I did know going into it that it was part of a series, so I should have been prepared for the ending, but nooo, I wasn’t. I wasn’t prepared for it to end; I actually put down my Kindle for a whole day in order to live in this world a little bit longer. Paranormal romance has to be my number one favorite read because of all the twist it can take and this one did not disappoint with those. Jus has another hit on her hands and I cannot wait until the second book comes out. I will say it’s not a cliffhanger but you still want to have the second book like, NOW.
4 1/2 our of 5 stars
