He’s the last man Chloe Girard should love . . . but the first she ever could.Ethan Frost is a visionary, a genius, every woman’s deepest, darkest fantasy—even mine. And, somehow, I am his.

He stole into my life like a dream. Turned my reality upside down and made my every desire come true—especially those I never knew I had. He demanded everything I had to give and gave me everything of himself in return.

But dreams don’t last forever, and ours is no exception. Because my nightmares are darker, and my wounds deeper, than I could ever reveal. And as much as Ethan wants to protect me, the secrets we we share will only tear us apart.

My review:

I have to admit that I was little sceptical about Ruined. The reason behind it is, that there are tons of books where a rich CEO meets an ordinary girl, they fall in love, face issues and then suddenly you have a trilogy. But believe me, when I am saying that this book is different.

I loved the writing style! It was funny, sexy and there is much more to the story than you think in the beginning. It was genuinely well-written and a total page turner. And what a cliffhanger at the end of the book!!! Honestly, I can't wait to the sequel!


Chloe has her first day of the internship at Frost Industries when she meets a guy blending smoothies at the company cafeteria. Ethan is laid back and he seems to know a lot about his smoothies. You quickly find out that Ethan knows much more than just about the smoothies. He is a handsome CEO of the Frost Industries and finds himself being very intrigued about Chloe.

Chloe has a dark past which she tries to forget and her past is the reason why she doesn't want to have anything to do with Ethan. But Ethan doesn't give up. He does all the right things to win Chloe's heart.

There are some interesting twists and turns in Ruined and the plot is not as obvious as it seems. It's a romance, but also deals with some serious issues like abuse, betrayal and family relations. What I loved about it was, that even though the author and the characters are dealing with heavy topics, the book was not dark and tormented and that is mainly because the story is told by the point of view of Chloe. That brings us to the characters.


Chloe does have a dark past, but she has moved forward by deciding that she wants to live a normal life. That is her biggest strength and that is what made for so lovable. Whatever has happened she has decided to make the best out of her life and I admired her for that. She is strong, feisty and her voice is adorable!

Ethan is puzzled and intrigued by Chloe. Chloe is not opening up very easily and that darkens their relationship. Luckily Ethan does right with her and wins her trust. I loved Ethan, he was persistent and sweet and hot as hell.


Ruined is a great start for Ethan Frost series. It is a page tuner which you can't put away. It has some hot romance, well developed characters and it is fun to read. I highly recommend it!

5 Flowers!
5 stars.
