Editorial Reviews


"I am truly impressed with the level of experience and maturity with which Nicole Reed writes. There are those that can write a story and there are those that can make you feel and experience the story. I think you'll agree when I say Reed will definitely give you an experience." - D Flirty and Dirty Book Blog
"These two books together tell a wonderful story; life is about what you make
it. And although this young woman has had to deal with so much, the message
of moving forward from it even when it is hard is so powerful." - Denise @ Shh Mom's Reading
Overall I think Ruining You is a fantastic conclusion to a series that I absolutely love. I love Nicole's writing style and the depth of her characters. I felt that she did a brilliant job of bringing the characters full circle and leaving us feeling like they all got what they needed.  I would HIGHLY recommend this series." - Angie's Dreamy Reads
"This story tore at my heart, broke it into a million pieces and then glues it whole again. I think I felt almost ever emotion imaginable with reading this. Nicole is truly a talented author that has done a stupendous job handling some very real, hard and raw issues and bringing it all together to create a beautiful story about one girls journey to take back her life and be the nest that she can be." - My Guilty Obsession
"This is a very well written second story!!!" - Stick Girl Book Reviews
"Nicole Reed has outdone herself with Ruining You. The journey Jay follows from torment to healing is a wonderful type of exhaustion. To have a seat beside her for that journey and to watch her healing as she learns to love herself is miraculous." - Romantic Reading Escapes Book Blog

SPOILER ALERT...SPOILER ALERT......If you haven't read Nicole Reed's "Ruining Me" please don't read this review for "Ruining You" it contains spoilers. PLEASE stop now and go read Ruining Me before reading this review - you won't be sorry.

After the loss of her innocence and her first love JT, James "Jay" Stevenson wanted to end it all. After a failed suicide attempt she makes a promise to live, now the only thing she needs to figure out is what to live for. Kane and Rhye are still there waiting for Jay to find herself and a path for her life. But waiting to find herself may cause her to lose even more. Jay has 2 options to live in the past and live with the guilt she has placed on her shoulders with the death of JT or choose to live for herself and her future. Jay chooses to live, for today, tomorrow and her future. She will carry the memory and love for JT in her heart forever. She knows she has to let go and move forward. She chooses life and she makes the choice to live it and be happy.

I don't know where to begin. This is the perfect ending to Jay's story. The lost and broken girl from Ruining Me pokes her head in Ruining You in the beginning but after meeting Eli she gets stronger, more determined and knows she wants to live, she wants a life, a future and she will stop at nothing to get that. I loved this story from the first journal entry to the last final 2 words. Nicole Reed with touch your heart with this story and pull at your heartstrings. I felt Jay's pain, her guilt, her struggles, her wants and needs throughout this book. Oh and KANE, what can I say - I think I fell in love with him even more in this book. Not only is he drop dead gorgeous with a nice body, but his heart is pure and his love for Jay is beyond this world.

After the devastating end of Ruining Me, I needed to pick this one up immediately to settle my heart. Jay reached the breaking point at the end of the first book. She was truly broken and we get to see her put herself back together again in Ruining You. Again, this wasn't an easy journey to read, but the ending made it worth all the tears.

Once again, my heart hurt for Jay. No person should have to suffer so much tragedy. However, I felt like she had the support and love she needed to allow herself to heal. At the forefront in the crusade in healing Jay, was Kane. As in the first book, I loved Kane. He is such a solid guy. He has an understanding of what Jay is going through and I think because of his maturity, it really helped Jay. And while I liked Rhys, he just wasn't able to give Jay what she needed.

There were some parts of the story that I questioned at times. However, I looked at the big picture again, and could see how this situation could really be extremely dramatic and volatile. People do crazy things when they are hurt or threatened. Keep that in mind while you're reading this one.

Overall, I really liked this one too. I was happy to see Jay through her recovery process. Not only did she find peace within herself, but she made progress with her family and truly treasured the time she had with her friends. Then of course, there was Kane. Man, I can't say enough about this guy. He was a special guy for sure. I'm glad I read these two books. It was upsetting at times, but the story was very real and I did get a true love story. It was an experience I'm not likely to forget any time soon.

Recommended for readers over 18.

~The path I chose is the one I continue to choose.

Ruining You is the conclusion to the emotional and oftentimes intense story of Jay Stevenson and her climb from the depths of fear and depression to the realization that her life is very much worth living.

This book opens up with Jay in a rehabilitation center. She has voluntarily checked in and is attending therapy regularly. After an attempted suicide after the events that occurred at the end of Ruining Me, Jay battles with her inner demons. She is haunted by the past - in her mind, in her dreams and in every waking moment. Jay has become a shell of a girl and with the help of a new friend, Eli, she is able to start fighting for her life and happiness.

"My soul is broken into a million pieces, and I find new fragments every day. The deconstruction of me is painful, but there are reasons why I can't finish what I started."

After some time in therapy, Jay decides to return home. Things have changed since she's been away - some good changes, and some bad ones. Kane is still in the picture, and although he would wait forever for Jay, he continues living his life. Rhye is also part of Jay's recovery, and the lusty attraction between the two is evident. Jay has a decision to make - not which boy she wants, but what will maker her happy. Jay begins a journey of self-discovery - deciding for herself, without any one else, that her life can be happy.

The best change that occurred while Jay was gone is the change her parents are making. Jay's parents accept responsibility for their part in Jay's former life. They treat her like an adult, and although they have some conversations with her that would have had me running from my parents, they support her 100%.
