Review: Ruin by Rachel Van Dyken

Author: Rachel Van Dyken

Publication Date: August 10, 2013

Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance

Goodreads Synopsis:

I’m not your typical girl. I’ve been running away from the memories that haunt me for so long that depression has become my only comfort. I was content in the darkness…until Wes Michals offered to be my light.

I didn’t know that time wasn’t my ally — that every second that ticked past was one step closer to the end of something that was beginning to mean the end of myself. He tried to warn me. He promised me all he was able to offer–each moment as it came–but it would never be enough.

Sometimes when you think it’s the end, it’s only the beginning. Wes thought he could save me, but in giving me everything, he ruined me. Because after one kiss, one touch, I couldn’t–I wouldn’t ever be the same.

And from that moment on, his heartbeat became my own.

Ugh! This is one of those books that I really liked but feel at a loss of what to write in a review. I guess I’ll just keep it simple.

I couldn’t and didn’t want to put Ruin down. It made me laugh. It made me come close to tears. It surprised me in some of the best ways.

Wes and Kiersten were adorable. The love and friendship they shared was sweet and unconditional. The strength they gave each other was really beautiful.

I really, really enjoyed this book. You should read it, if you haven’t yet.
