Editorial Reviews


"I love that aside from the romance and sexy steam in Claire Raye books, you also get real topics. In Ruin Me, we get to see the fallout from Complete Me. That has always been my favorite about the author duo. The ability to write a completely swoon worthy story about real people with real issues." ~Luz, Luz's Library.

"This book was fantastic. Watching Caleb and Ruby fight their obvious attraction to each other was just the type of slow burn that I love." ~Stacie, The Banker and the Book Nerd.

"This was NOT the story I had somehow created in my mind about Caleb and Ruby. It was so much better though. It was true and raw and so damn real, with real life problems." ~Ele, The Obsessive Bookworm.

"An emotionally complex story of the true struggles of navigating life and a relationship with PTSD. While the narrative offers some witty banter, charismatic characters, and easy energy, Claire Raye does not shy away from the truth of this disorder." ~Terra, Wayward Readers.

Not only is Claire Raye a really sweet pen name, it’s actually a pen name for two sarcastic best friends who met through their mutual love of reading. After bonding over books (and wine and cheese), they decided to take the plunge and see if they could write a book together and ta dah... The Rockport Beach Series was born! In addition to their shared love of food and dropping an occasional (read, a lot of) f bombs, the writing duo that is Claire Raye like to write about strong, sassy females who aren’t afraid to say what’s on their mind and the overprotective men who fall in love with them.

Both halves of Claire Raye are married and both of their husbands have a cheeky side that gets plenty of airtime in their books. From their smart mouths to their witty one-liners, there’s plenty of material to use for all those alpha males they love to write about.

While Claire Raye isn’t sure they’ll ever reveal who they really are —there’s just something about your co-workers knowing you write erotic love scenes that makes having a pen name that much easier— they’re definitely going to keep on writing. Plans are already underway for the next series, which is sure to feature plenty of sass, steam and humor, and of course, a happily ever after!

5.0 out of 5 stars I am in ruins for Caleb Parker
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on October 28, 2020
“I am still here, still alive. Even if alive means I’m barely living.” - Claire Raye, Ruin Me

I knew I was going to love Caleb, and I was right. I’m totally in love with him. I also knew this story was going to mess me up, and it totally did that too.

This poor strong, broken boy 😭. My heart hurts for him. The way he’s trying so hard to recover from his trauma— to trust and love again. Gaaaaah. I just want to hug him so tight.

I absolutely love Ruby for him. Their connection is so beautiful, and the way she’s helping to heal him fills me with so much hope.

In true Claire Raye fashion, there are a few really powerful messages woven throughout the story, but this romance shines so bright. It’s a slowish burn with lotssss of fiery sexual tension and an intense level of chemistry. It’s hot and emotional and I felt it deep.

But that cliff hanger? Jeebus help me, I need book two so badly. I’m in love with this couple and they are totally breaking me 😭. Luckily, Claire Raye promised that book two will be out soon, and they’re always true to their word!
