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.
Oh my gosh, I should have waited to read this until the next book came out! Ruined is the first book in the new Ethan Frost series, and it has quite the cliffhanger ending. Ethan Frost in a rich, powerful, CEO and Chloe starts working at his company as an intern. Ethan seems to be determined to have her when he first sets eyes on her, but Chloe doesn't want to be involved with the boss.
Some people are comparing this book to Fifty Shades of Gray, but it's really not like that at all. There is no BDSM and Ethan is very gentle with Chloe. He knows that she's had a rough past and is fragile. I think he is afraid that she will run away so he treads very lightly. He's a little bit possessive, but in a good way.
Emotionally, Chloe is all over the place. Ethan has baggage as well, but he is more stable. He is good for her. A sweet and sexy relationship builds, rather quickly. The love scenes are very HOT and descriptive. Ethan is a great character, but the way he starts acting at the end of the book is odd. He doesn't explain himself very well, and I thought Chloe was a little too forgiving. Both of them are still keeping secrets. They are going to both have to get their secrets out in the open for their relationship to work. And then we have that ending... Ugh, it's so frustrating. I can't wait until the next book. I really enjoyed Chloe and Ethan's story and I need more.
