Slay: Ruin (Slay Quartet #2) by Laurelin Paige




(Slay #2)

by Laurelin Paige

Release Date: October 29th



With her heart literally in his hands, Celia will have to try and bargain with a devil.

Edward Fasbender is my captor.

Trapped on this island he owns everything on–including, it seems, me.

He told me he would break me, but I thought he meant in the bedroom. It turns out Edward is playing a completely different game.

And he won’t stop until he’s ruined me.

Slay Two: Ruin is the second book in the Slay Quartet. Slay One: Rivalry should be read first.

Yes, she was calculating and manipulative, and she was very spoiled about getting her way, but that was all surface. She was an onion. There were layers and layers underneath, parts of her that she held away. Parts she showed no one. For whatever reason, I’d caught sight of what she kept hidden, whether she’d meant for that to happen or not, I couldn’t be sure. Regardless, I was captivated. There was so much to see there, so much to take down. So much of her to know and own and destroy and redesign, and like an old habit, I couldn’t break away.

She was an addiction, and I wanted to feed on it. She wasn’t supposed to be like that.

She wasn’t supposed to want to bend to my whims. She wasn’t supposed to open up and give what I asked for. She wasn’t supposed to be so eager to take what I gave her. She certainly wasn’t supposed to see past my own curtain, wasn’t supposed to ask to see more.

I’m here for this, she’d said.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Okay, so right now, like this minute, I am sitting squarely on the why the frikk is this story being told in four parts?!?! I need it to end like yesterday LOL And please don’t misunderstand and think it’s because it’s dragging for dragging because it isn’t but it’s .. a lot.

I am almost 90% certain on the reason for the whole four-part thing NOW that I’ve read Ruin. The title of the third installment plus Edward’s last words pretty much paint a picture but I’m not counting my chickens just yet, if you know what I mean.

Ruin was … unexpected. That’s the best I can tell you. Edward is … weirdly fascinating and a little bit scary LOL This entire journey is weirdly captivating and addictive. I am fully invested and all in. Not only because I’ve already read two parts, of course I’m gonna finish now, but because I believe in Edward and Celia. I am rooting for them. I want to hug them at the finish line, sort of speak. And if I know one thing for certain is it ain’t over till it’s over and it’s gonna get worse before it gets better. Bet me.


Sidenote: You know that saying about hitting rock bottom … yeah, this story, in all its parts, is exactly that.

Meet The Author

With millions of books sold worldwide, Laurelin Paige is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling Author. She is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however.


When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or Letterkenny, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio.

She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.
