How steamy is it? Hot Damn

Publisher's Summary

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. He 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.

Contains mature themes.

Critic Reviews

"Tracy Wolff knows how to steam up the pages, and she proves it again in Ruined. If you're looking for a hot read, curl up with Ethan Frost." (J. Kenner, New York Times and USA Today best-selling author)

A BEAUTIFUL LOVE GOT RUINED BY A KNOCK ON THE DOOR

Ethan Frost is a rich, handsome, sexy Entrepreneur owning Frost Industries and whilst he's working in the restaurant of the building unsuspecting Law Intern Chloe starts a battle of wills argument with him over a Smoothie. It's her first day and she's no idea who this stubborn surfer looking dude is but won't back down..... and their connections made. What happens after that is a funny struggle over a Blender that has witty banter laced with sexual chemistry and it's the start of an emotional roller coaster of a love story.... so hold on tight.

But it's not long until Chloe's insecurities, broken pieces and deep emotional scars over her heartbreaking past kicks in however Ethan's there ready to catch her, hold her through it all and help her to overcome the toxic feelings going around in her head. He is loving, understanding, sweet, tender and very passionate as their relationship eases into sex.... tentative sex, hot n heavy frantic sex and mind blowing loving sex. And in his loving arms slowly Chloe starts to heal by sharing some of her bitter heartbreaking tortuous past..... until that past comes knocking on Ethan's door and then their gently woven world comes crashing down on them leaving devastation, tears, heartbreak and two broken hearts in its wake. That and one hell of a cliffhanger.

Worth a credit? This very addictive, funny, touching, sexy, heartbreaking and hot listen told from Chloe's POV is very well narrated and is definitely worth a credit or a buy. The awesome writing style enables you to visualise each scene as it unfolds. But it does contain talk of rape and its aftermath.

awesome story.

I can't wait to read book two Addicted. Other reviews say book two isn't as good. I hope to not be disappointed. I fell in love with the characters. There were times when her self-doubt was a bit annoying, but then, she would recover. I get why she had it.

I liked that Ethan was a good guy. Not an angry I got my money by being a prick. It made him lovable immediately. I wish I worked at a company where food was free.

Incredible narration!

The narrator really brought this book to life and wow it was an incredible book but the emotion she put in it was just draw dropping good. The heroine is strong-willed she's determined to move on make it on her own which is exactly what I love she's also just you know got that soft spot too. Mr. Frost I think is like a closet alpha male which I absolutely love he gets his way without being overly domineering. My only complaint about the book was that I may be the only one that got confused to whether the past ex-boyfriend's name was either Brandon or Chad because they kept going back and forth I will definitely be getting book two

it is ruined

This woman whines too much. She thinks too much. I just couldn't with this book. Chloe is a game playing idiot. She is so sassy with Ethan but let's everyone else bully her.

The twists, the turns!

I can't say this enough but I love the Romance Package. It has allowed me to discover new-to-me authors and delve deeper into authors that I have read or listened to before along with new-to-me narrators.
I've only read a couple books by Tracy Wolff and what I have read, I liked. When I saw that the Ethan Frost series was available in the RP, I added them to my library right away.
Tess Chambers did an amazing job with the narration. Her voice was not distracting to the story and helped bring the characters and the story to life for me.
I really, really enjoyed this story. I had to get Ethan and Chloe's story. And boy, the twists and turns in this story blew me away. I kinda expected what happened at the end but I was still gasping out loud when Chloe opened the door. My chest was and is tight just thinking back on it.
I jumped right into Addicted before reviewing this so I know what happens now. I will not ruin it but will tell you that this series is one that has got my attention and I'm loving it. After I finish this review and the review for Addicted, I will be listening to Exposed. Oh and to my book whorish delight, I discovered that I have Flawed sitting pretty in my library. I may have listened to already but I'll giving it a re-listen that's for sure.

Chloe is so annoying!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

it took everything I had to finish it! Don't misunderstand me rape is in no way a light subject and I couldn't possibly know what one goes through, but jeez, she goes on and on and on whines and poor me, at one point I actually deal with it!

Would you recommend Ruined to your friends? Why or why not?

I don't know, the story was a good one, but irritating heroin

What about Tess Chalmers’s performance did you like?

very good job!

Could you see Ruined being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

mmmmmm no, well if Chloe's caracter gets consoling
