Book Description

For a girl who dared to tempt death, living is the only promise that matters now.

Jay’s life almost came to a forced end when her darkest secrets were revealed and the one who she chose to give her future to was ripped away. Now, everything she kept hidden is the topic of everyone’s conversation, and not all are sympathetic. Someone wants her horrific past to dictate her future, and another is determined to help her choose a different path.

In conclusion to Ruining Me, Kane and Rhye know that Jay is worth the fight, but waiting for her to find herself may ruin them all.

Recommended for readers 17+ due to sexual situations, violence, and language.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Emotional and Heartfelt Stars!! January 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Autumn Review for Ruining You February 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
4.5 stars
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars No. SPOILERS! May 10, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Sadly, I couldn't finish reading the book (which has never happened to me before). The main character, Jay, keeps jumping back and fourth between men that she "thinks" she's in love with. Her indecisions in my opinion is rather annoying and childish.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!! FABULOUS READ!!! :D March 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
WOW!!! 5 Stars is DEFINITELY not enough for this WONDERFUL read! Nicole Reed has done it again! She has written a 2 book series that will stay with me forever! She has made me laugh, cry & squeeee ;) I must say that I LOVE Kane & I was Team Kane from the very beginning! I'm now CAPTAIN of the TEAM KANE FAN CLUB!! The LOVE he felt for Jay jumped right out my Kindle & landed "bullseye" right smack dab in the middle of my heart!! @ times I wanted to strangle Jay & shake her until she could see what was right in front of her face! But, I understand that she needed to learn to love & respect herself & also to stop blaming herself for all the horrible things that have happened in her young life! She was an AMAZING heroine even though it didn't seem possible in the beginning! Now, I can look back and see that she indeed was a strong heroine! I'm still on a complete high from finishing this book that I'm sure I'm rambling on! But, I must say, that everyone should read BOTH of these books!!

Thank you Mollie Kay Harper for suggesting "Ruining Me" when I was in desperate need for something to read! As ALWAYS you are right on ;)

I wish I could give this book more than 5 Stars but unfortunately that is all that is allowed!!!
