The sexy New Adult e-original from Jamie Brenner, in which Lulu has everything except the one thing she never knew she desired—until now.


She lives in a world of beauty.

His life is shrouded in darkness.

When they meet, she must choose between everything she has and the one thing she has always desired.


Lulu Sterling thinks she has it all figured out: with one more year left at NYU, she’s spending her summer interning at her mother’s iconic art gallery, determined to overcome the long shadow of her father’s suicide and prove herself to her critical mother. With her boyfriend, rising artist Brandt Penn, Lulu also hopes she will finally experience the love and desire that have always eluded her.  But passion comes where she least expects it in the form of a brilliant, reclusive street artist known only by the tag GoST, and Lulu must decide how much she is willing to risk – and how far she is willing to go --  to claim it.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Anna Sterling is a legendary art dealer and discoverer of new talent. She has not only decreed that her daughter, Lulu, will follow in her footsteps by taking over her gallery, she believes herself to be the arbiter of Lulu's taste in art and in men. VERDICT The fascination and eventual romance between Lulu and the street artist known as GoST proceed in fits and starts as the young couple work out whether they can have a relationship. But the story of Lulu's growing independence from the smothering Anna is the one that sticks in the mind. [Xpress Reviews, 5/16/14.]—Marlene Harris, Seattle P.L.

    I do believe this is the first New Adult novel set in the art wo

    I do believe this is the first New Adult novel set in the art world I've read.  I had no idea the art world was so cut throat!  I'm not sure what it was I was expecting, but this book was full of drama and action.    

    As a fan of art in all its forms I was surprised to see the disdain with which street art like GoST's was treated compared to traditional art like Brandt Penn's.  Now seeing how one art installation caused traffic to shut down and the bomb squad called out, I can see why it's not looked on so favorably.  After all the purpose of art is to convey a message or capture a moment in time and everyone interprets things differently.  

    I really liked Lulu.  She knew what she liked and she went after it.  I liked how even though she was afraid of her mother, once she gained confidence and herself, she didn't let anyone hold her back.  I admired GoST for the same reason.  Not only was he trying to convey a message to the public but he stood behind his art.  He wasn't going to let anyone else take credit for it or let anyone get hurt because of it.

    Chances are I'm not doing a really good job at conveying how good this book was.  Give a try. It took me about 10% to really get into it, and then I had a very hard time putting it down. This is the first book by Jamie Brenner that I've read.  I'm surprised I haven't heard about her before.  Now that I know she's written other books, I'm definitely going to check them out and keep my eyes and ears pealed for whatever she writes next.

    What a pleasant surprise to read a book with an idea I’ve never read before!  Lulu Sterling, our heroine, is the daughter of one of New York’s most well known and respected gallery owners.  In the art world, she’s like a princess waiting to inherit that status after she graduates NYU.  She’s even dating a talented up and coming artist.  But in living that sheltered life she’s also never experienced many things.  Felt many things.

    But she has a passion for street art.  She even documents it on her Instagram account.  And she’s a huge fan of GoST. His art is political at times, but always meaningful.  At one of her mom’s events she happened to catch a glimpse of GoST in action and got a chance to get closer to him.

    I was surprised at how much I liked the unconventional hero.  He’s homeless, really!  How could I find him interesting?  But he’s edgy, very smart and knows his agenda well.  He’s not scared to go for it and accomplish what he sets out to do.  And until Lulu he was also very much closed off to the outside world.

    RUIN ME shows that you can find love in the most unexpected places and how that love can bring out the real you inside.  I loved reading that process in Lulu and I had fun with their adventures!
