in Reading Order Guide:

<— Tearjerker alert! I knew it was coming, and still… *sniff sniff* I have a love/hate relationship with tear-jerkers and yet I can’t stay away. So much emotion. ;) Yep, I read it and reviewed it, and now a book #2 is already out, and book #2.5 will be out tomorrow! :D

And these fellow readers has the “feels” too!

Sarah: You gotta add this one to your TBR! You will cry, you will laugh, you will cry again, then feel empowered to LIVE!! This is an amazing love story with the ever-present, deep-rooted reminder that each day is a gift. You will not only fall in love with these characters, but you will be encompassed by their spirit! This is a story that I will reflect on often, and one that I will re-read for years to come. So, when you’re in the mood for a heart-wrenching, heart-warming, true love story……perfect for after our “dark captive” guilty pleasures;)…READ THIS ONE!

Missy: Ruin by Rachel Van Dyken because everyone needs to cry big ugly tears once In a while…

Jenn: One of my favs this year was Ruin by Rachel Van Dyken!

Vicki: one that got me to write the author and comment on a review was Ruin by Rachel Van Dyken. A story that hits close to home!!

About book #1:

I’m not your typical girl. I’ve been running away from the memories that haunt me for so long that depression has become my only comfort. I was content in the darkness…until Wes Michels offered to be my light.

I didn’t know that time wasn’t my ally — that every second that ticked past was one step closer to the end of something that was beginning to mean the end of myself. He tried to warn me. He promised me all he was able to offer–each moment as it came–but it would never be enough.

Sometimes when you think it’s the end, it’s only the beginning. Wes thought he could save me, but in giving me everything, he ruined me. Because after one kiss, one touch, I couldn’t–I wouldn’t ever be the same.

And from that moment on, his heartbeat became my own.

I read Book 1 a few months back and forgot some of the storyline…too many other books read since then! However, as soon as I started reading Toxic #2 it all started coming back! And Fearless #2.5….tears for sure! Cheesy at times…over the top uber-romance…but tears for sure! Looking forward to #3 coming out now! Definitely would recommend reading them in order, and not letting too much time go by between the reads!
