Ruined by A.K. MacBride is now LIVE!
I have no space or need for it.
I’m perfectly happy with my little girl
being the only woman in my life.
Then Zoe Carlisle comes waltzing into my town
looking sinfully sexy and troubled as hell.
Although my mind warns me
that this woman and her secrets will ruin me,
my heart is yelling that I need to protect her
—no matter what the cost.

Author of romances that leave you with ALL the feels.
She likes her coffee big and strong and her chocolate sinfully dark.
Living in a small town in South Africa, she’s afforded the luxury of being surrounded by mountains and waking up to birds singing their morning songs.
In addition to her coffee and chocolate obsession, she can’t say no to cheesecake or pastry.
When she is not creating emotional reads that tug on heartstrings, she’s busy being a wife to her best friend and a mom to a sassy little girl (whom she wouldn’t want any other way).
She just so happens to love stalkers, so don’t be shy and get your stalk on.

I am kind of wavering between 3 and 4 stars with this one. 🌟 I enjoyed the writing. 👍 It was well paced. 🏃 The plot was engaging. 👀 Sweet. 🍬 Molly was adorable. 💞 There was really no angst. 💖 There was no OW or OM drama (see side note). 🙌 Mild sex scenes. 🔥 It had a great cast of secondary characters. 👫👫👫 Both Eli and Zoe were likable as well. 💑Last, it was all wrapped up in a decent happy for now. 💍
However, overall, the plot lacked a bit of depth. 👀 I felt the heroine’s past (which was damn traumatic) was glossed over. 🙈 Along with the current “baddie” situation. 🔪 And the romance wasn’t as fleshed out as it could have been. 👎 Especially given the baggage both parties were lugging around. 💼💼 Overall, though, I found it to be an enjoyable read and I am curious to read about Adam. 👀 So I will definitely give this author another try. 👍
SIDE NOTE: This author gets some bonus points for breaking free of the usual H/h set up. 🙌 In this book the heroine was the one who slept around and had ONS, and the hero had been celibate for six (maybe seven) years. 😵 So kudos to you author for giving us something different int that regard! 👍
