Overview

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?

I love angst....I thrive on it, but only the fictional kind. I adore a story that grips the reader from the beginning and doesn't let go...EVER. I'm an avid reader who just recently discovered my love of writing. My favorite things in life include my three wild & crazy kids, Reeses Pieces, and every genre of music.

I honestly don't know what to write here. I'm numb. I'm confused. I'm shocked. I have never read a book that left me feeling like I do right now. I have never read a book with an ending like the ending I got with Ruining Me. I just don't know what to write about this book! Did I love it? Yes...and no. There are secrets, lies, mystery, betrayals. Fear, loathing, angst, hatred...I felt it all. I was sick to my stomach. I couldn't hide this away, because I just kept seeing it coming. I didn't love the beginning, but the journey to the ending held a lot of angst for me. Jay's dreams were surreal and terrifying, but made so much sense when I got close to the end...and the ending! I never expected that ending! This book touches on quite a few subjects that are all so real, yet we tend to deny that they exist sometimes, or we think they don't exist within our bubble, but that doesn't make them any less real. I won't give you a synopsis, because I'm too afraid I will spoil it for you. However, this book gives us so much to "think" about. Hopefully the "thinking" will spar you...and me...into action when the time is warranted. I don't know what's best for someone else, yet I know that sometimes I pretend that I do...especially those I love. If you love someone, make the most of that time, instead of pushing them away. Savor any and all moments with friends and loved ones. Speak...DO NOT remain silent! Comfort cannot be found in sex, drugs, or alcohol. <=== Those are the messages I took from this story. Kudos to Nicole Reed for bringing such horrid truths and realities to the surface. I will say that you have to stick with the story to get to the end. There are quite a few angst moments, and I did let out a few Holy #$%@!'s from time to time. There are also a few cheesy and far fetched moments in the dialogue, but those didn't take away from the story. I am still numb, and I'm not sure that I won't be haunted by the ending. I can only scream to the author, "Which path?!" along with begging for a sequel so I might have closure or resolution.

I wasn't going to read this book, because my daughter took her own life in 2010, but something drew me to both books. My words have left me except for what an amazing job the author did describing the good, bad, and the really uglies in life. Thank you for not sugar coating what happens in life and also directing people to suicide prevention hotline, which is 1(800)273-TALK.

After reading "Taking Chances" I was looking for another good book and this one by far exceeded everything I was looking for. It has love, loss, regret, and scars. It shows how some teens, and adults for that matter, function with heartbreak and everyday life. Really one of the best books I have ever read. Can't wait for the sequel!!

Raw & emotional. Should be for more mature teens due to the graphic subject matter (which is obvious even though one reviewer said they couldn't figure it out until the end when it was spelled out for them.) Cliff hanger at the end so i imagine there will be another book. Well worth the money.

Unique storyline...self destructive and self absorbed main character...despite that you cant help but feel her pain and want her to fight back.

I was a pissy, hot mess after this book! So, we are going to play 20 questions with this review, because to talk about it would just set me off again. 1. Did I cry? No. 2. Did I want to? Maybe. 3. Was I pissed off? YES. 4. Would I recommend this book? Yes. 5. Did I like the characters? Yes 6. Did it contain angst? Yes 7. Are you happy that you read it? No 8. Does it have a good story line? Yes 9. Is it the most grammatically perfect book you have ever read? No 10. Did you get nervous and seek out spoilers before you finished reading the book? Maybe 12. Did you finish reading the book? Yes 13. Did you feel deceived after reading this book? Yes 14. Would you read this book again? NO 15. Did you hate this book? Yes 16. Did you love this book? Yes 17. Will you read another book by Nicole Reed? Maybe 18. Out of JT, Rhye and Kane, who would you choose? JT 19. Are you sure about that last answer? No 20. Are you aware you skipped question 11? Yes If you are slightly confused by my review, then good! You know exactly how I felt while reading this. Just read it...I don't want to be alone in my confusion! Happy Reading!!
