Title: Ruin
Series: Summer In Winter, #1
Author: C.J. Scott
Rating: 2 Shooting Stars

Kate Bell isn't perfect. Not even close. The things she got up to in college would cause her parents to fall off their pedestals in shock. Home for the summer vacation, Kate settles in for a long, boring break in the tiny backwater of Winter with folks who still treat her like she's twelve.

Then Ben Parker arrives and suddenly Winter gets interesting. He's hot, mysterious and good with his hands. Kate falls for him instantly, but her cop father warns her to stay away. But how can she stay away from someone as compelling as Ben? Someone who thinks she's perfect just the way she is?

When Ben's secrets catch up to him, not only is Kate's heart in danger of being broken, but Ben's entire future could be ruined. 

RUIN is a new adult contemporary romance intended for mature readers. It contains strong language and sexual situations.


Review Copy


This book starts out with Kate being back home in Winter from college. She is bored in her sleepy little town until Ben Parker shows up. He is a strange hot guy with secrets, and she wants to unlock them. So she talks him into staying in town with a friend of hers to help repair the house for food and board.

The thing is Kate can't seem to stay away from him even if every one is warning her to. She just has this strange connection to him that she can't seem to stop. He on the other is trying to push her away, but Kate isn't having it. 

But when she finds out his secrets we have to find out if there connection is enough to keep them together or not.


I have to say I wasn't overly impressed with the book. Well I actually didn't really like it at all. I felt that the whole book was rushed, and that the story just felt weak. I also wasn't a big fan of Kate either. She kind of acted like a child when it came to her parents. Not only that I also felt like we didn't get to know Ben. I mean yeah we find out things about him, but we don't really know his personality much. So over all I have to say this book wasn't for me. The writing was awesome though, but the story just wasn't something I found an interest in.
