Review – Ruin Me


Ruin Me


Immortal Vices and Virtues #6


Jenna Wolfhart


Paranormal Romance


The last place I expected to meet my fated mate was in an alley. On the run from angry supernaturals and drenched in at least a tidal wave’s worth of rain, I fall—literally—into his arms.
Only problem is, he’s Silas Thorn, an infamous vampire assassin who’s killed more people than I can count. If there was an entry for “Bad News” in the dictionary, a picture of his disturbingly attractive face, with his strong jawline and piercing eyes, would be included.
Even worse, those supernaturals who were chasing me have caught my father. They believe he killed one of their own, and they’re out for blood. Working with Silas might be the only way to clear his name before it’s too late.
But as I’m drawn into the darkness of his world, the pull of our fated bond is almost impossible to ignore. And if I’m not careful, he will ruin me.

Book number 6 of,so far, an excellent series 😀


For the first time, we’re not just passing through No Man’s Land. We’re staying!
You could really feel how alone and desolate the people feel out there. They have no Houses to fall back to, nobody that protects them. Instead, they are stuck in the middle of vampire gangs battling it out. Throw some angels and cats in the mix et voila… enjoy Towton City!
The scenes and environments were well-written and detailed enough to fully relax and enjoy the story.

Character development:

Gwen is half-angel and half-human, training to be a protector of the people like her father, the notorious Phantom. However, she still has a way to go when disaster strikes and her father is taken by one of the gangs for something he cannot have done. Deciding to get to the bottom of this case and free her father, she pairs up with an unlikely ally, Orpheus.
Orpheus, better known as Silas in his everyday life, has vowed to clean the streets little by little to give the people a fighting chance. Even though he’s a vampire, he’s very human-centred.
Gwen and Silas have had their hardships, and now they both have to step up, or they won’t survive.
They both mature and learn to depend on someone else (which isn’t all that obvious, them being in their chosen activities). I feel like the story revolves a lot more around the fight they are in and not so much about the romance, which was an unexpected, but pleasant surprise 🙂

Pacing & Flow:

I read the book in 2 reading sessions (alas, someone needs to work to pay the bills), and while it was a smooth read, I sometimes had trouble keeping my attention on the story. But still, good balance between the many action scenes and the conversations.

The book itself:

The book was well written with no (noticeable) errors. There is some sexual tension and one fairly detailed scene (if that is important to you).
The book has 244 pages, spread over 32 chapters, told from both Gwen’s and Silas’ points of view.

Final Thoughts:

I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book, and all in all, another good instalment in the series! If you like a more action-driven book that is fairly low on romance and spice, be sure to grab this one!
