“RUIN ME shows that you can find love in the most unexpected places and how that love can bring out the real you inside.” ~Under the Covers
What a pleasant surprise to read a book with an idea I’ve never read before! Lulu Sterling, our heroine, is the daughter of one of New York’s most well known and respected gallery owners. In the art world, she’s like a princess waiting to inherit that status after she graduates NYU. She’s even dating a talented up and coming artist. But in living that sheltered life she’s also never experienced many things. Felt many things.
But she has a passion for street art. She even documents it on her Instagram account. And she’s a huge fan of GoST. His art is political at times, but always meaningful. At one of her mom’s events she happened to catch a glimpse of GoST in action and got a chance to get closer to him.
I was surprised at how much I liked the unconventional hero. He’s homeless, really! How could I find him interesting? But he’s edgy, very smart and knows his agenda well. He’s not scared to go for it and accomplish what he sets out to do. And until Lulu he was also very much closed off to the outside world.
RUIN ME shows that you can find love in the most unexpected places and how that love can bring out the real you inside. I loved reading that process in Lulu and I had fun with their adventures!

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
