We met in a nightmare. The in-between world where time had no power over reason. We fell in love. We fell hard. But then we woke up. And it was over . . ."
RUIN & RULE
She is a woman divided. Her past, present, and future are as twisted as the lies she's lived for the past eight years. Desperate to get the truth, she must turn to the one man who may also be her greatest enemy . . .
He is the president of Pure Corruption MC. A heartless biker and retribution-deliverer. He accepts no rules, obeys no one, and lives only to reap revenge on those who wronged him. And now he has stolen her, body and soul.
Can a woman plagued by mystery fall in love with the man who refuses to face the truth? And can a man drenched in darkness forgo his quest for vengeance-and finally find redemption?
I was provided a review copy by Forever, Grand Central Publishing, NetGalley; this did not influence my opinion of the book.
Ruin & Rule is about a man who suffered a horrible betrayal years ago and has been suffering ever since. He has set his plot for revenge in place and is determined to follow through.
It is also about a woman who has suffered something so horrible many years prior, that she has lost all memory of the events of her life. Including who she is.
The two meet when she is kidnapped by traffickers and once their eyes meet, they know nothing will ever be the same.
The positive: I really liked our main characters. Kill and our heroine were individually strong and interesting. When paired they produced an enormous amount of steam and romance.
The negative: Let me say that the ending sucker punched me! That Cliffhanger *SUCKED*! Really! For me that was almost the worst part of the whole book. View Spoiler »Because the majority of the book droned on and on about “Kill’s” secret and why it was so bad that it would cause her to run. And we get to the ending and BAM. Nothing. « Hide Spoiler But unfortunately, I also had a hard time connecting with the plot due to the mountains of inner dialogue. The continuous questioning of past and present had me wishing the story line would progress faster.
I know many people loved this, which puts me in the minority. It was an okay read for me.
