My Rating: 4 stars!
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 share will only tear us apart.

***Note to Readers*** If you do NOT like cliffhangers then this book is not for you!
This is my first Tracy Wolff novel and I have to say…I’m impressed. Like, really impressed. RUINED was written in a way that kept the reader intrigued and involved. I wanted more…I still want more!
The storyline flowed flawlessly and it had depth and mystery…everything I love about a good book. Tracy also had me giggling like a school girl in some places then blushing profusely in others! The plot left me on edge through most of the book. It was like I was waiting for the other shoe to drop. You are pulled in from page one and you cannot help but be enthralled into this world of the alpha Ethan Frost, owner of Frost Industries and the broken Chloe Girard, lowly intern.
The characters are very well-developed and are easily likable. Chloe has an awful past that affects her in so many ways and your heart can’t help but break for her, especially when you find out everything there is to know. It’s deep and dark and you want to see her pull through. Ethan is mysterious and all alpha male. He takes what he wants and what he wants is Chloe. There’s something about him that’s just as broken as Chloe and you want desperately to find out what it is. The way these two characters meet is very unexpected and hilarious. I love their personalities and together they are mind-blowing!
When Ethan finds out what Chloe endured as a teenager he handles her perfectly. He knows she’s needs to be in control and she needs to trust whoever she’s with completely. Ethan gives her those things and it will make you swoon. Seriously…I want my very own Ethan Frost!
But just when things start to come together that’s actually when everything falls a part. Ethan has secrets. Big secrets that Chloe may not be able to handle. The end of this book caused my heart to jump in my throat and then fall back into my stomach! It was crazy and unexpected! This leave me wondering if the secrets Ethan has will make Chloe turn away for good because believe….it’s a huge discovery!!!
Overall, I really loved this book. It captivated me like no other and I’m in desperate need of ADDICTED, book 2 in this series. I want to know what happens…I want to know more about Ethan and his background..and dammit, I want to see if they have a HEA!! Tracy Wolff is talented and believe me when I say I will be stalking the crap out of her until I get my next Ethan fix!
