Carla's Freakin' Five Star Review
Mercy, Mercy, Mercy! I have been waiting for Pipe's story for what seems like forever, and I am glad to say that it was SO worth the wait!
Pipe is a man who knows loss, but losing his wife devastated him. He was living some of his darkest days just wanting to die. That all changed the moment a petite woman with lots of sass and a dirty mouth came barreling into his life.
Layla's life hasn't been much better than Pipes. She is divorced and a single mom of three. Much like life, fate intervenes bringing these two broken people together. Is their story full of puppies and rainbows? Heck No! They both have a lot to work through before they can even think of finding their own version of happily ever after. My favorite quote from the book really sums up their relationship. "The harder the fall, the more beautiful the climb back up will be". Don't you just love that quote? I think each person reading this could apply it to their life at one point or another.
My favorite aspect of this book was not the wild monkey sex (although that was quiet enjoyable). No, my favorite character was little Lexi. That kid had sass for days, and she really cracked me up. It was also great to see the way Pipe interacted with and loved Layla's kids. Oh, and we also get the pleasure of checking up on a few old friends like Bulldog, Blackie, and Riggs!
Janine, it is so obvious that you put a lot of blood, sweet, and tears into Pipe and Layla's story. I was blown away! Girl, you rock!! If you haven't yet read the books in this series, you should one click them now!
I loved everything about this book. Janine pulls you into the story and makes you feel like you are right there. You feel the pain that Pipe is dealing with during the lose of his wife. The struggle that Layla is going through with now being a single mom to three kids. And those kids! I absolutely adored them.
If you want to read a book that gets your blood flowing and heart racing then I definitely recommend this book. My favorite line in this book brought tears to my eyes: “That mouth,” he grunts. “You’re lucky I love you.” From The Ruins can be read as a standalone since this is Layla and Lee’s story but I recommend enjoying this series by starting at the beginning so you can fall in love with all the characters.
I have met the author once (briefly) at a signing. At the beginning of her book she says that Layla is a character based on her. Despite only having that brief meeting with Bosco I can actually picture Layla as her (and vice versa)! I love that Bosco's characters share some similarities with real life people that I "know" from the book world. It makes me like them all even more! I am looking forward to more of these characters! with
From the Ruins is the start of a new series, Satan's Knights. It's a spin-off to the Tempted and Nomad series, which I didn't know. Though there are a lot, I would recommend reading those before From the Ruins. It is enjoyable on its own, but I think I would have appreciated the story more of I had an understanding of the club's history and the joys and pains they've experienced together.
My heart ached for Pipe's loss of not just his mother and wife, but the loss of who he is. This story is a wonderful example of how unexpected love can guide you to rediscovering who you are and that life is worth living even if you don't feel you are worthy.
Janine hits home with this very emotional story of loss, betrayal, revenge, love, finding oneself and life.
Each of her stories carries a message of hope and healing threaded between the grit and grime of MC life.
When one chapter of your life closes, another will open and you will rise again.
As with all of Janine’s stories, this is gripping, riveting and page turning.
I especially liked Layla's character, she was no push over, stood up for herself and kids.
Hopefully there will be other books in this series. Would love for Jack and Sunshine to have another child. Maybe Pipe getting his wish also.
The only thing I would have liked was more interaction with Layla's ex.
