✫✫ 5 Stars ✫✫ Perfect Love Story Ending!

Thank you M. Never for giving us this nugget! I loved getting to see how there story ended or at least what direction their lives went. Kayne and Ellie sure have come a long way since book 1 and I love how this series spans over years. I finished this book really feeling like I was completely satisfied. It was another very hot but emotional book. I don't know how the author can write a book that is 80% sex and still completely tell this emotional story, she is fast becoming one of my favorite authors! I'm excited to see what the next book could be about or should I say who because I am sure we've completed Kayne & Ellie's love story. I'll be impatiently waiting for the next audiobook release!

My reaction to the narration has not changed throughout this series! PERFECT CASTING!
Muffy & Sam are both incredible narrators and they seriously didn't disappoint in this book. I could listen to them both all day every day! This is about 90% Muffy & 10% Sam which was ok with me since she does a great male voice too!

Short and Sexy!

This book was great but it is not long enough for it to be by itself. We believe Kayne and Elie's story ahould be 2 books in the series and not 3. The story was good but just too short. lots of good sex and of course the long awaited scene... if you heard the previous 2 then you will see it coming. Enjoy!

Perfect Addition!

Ruined is the perfect addition to the Decadence After Dark series! I loved being able to see another glimpse into the the lives of these characters. I have devoured these first 3 books and desperately want more! M Never has quickly become an ultimate 1-click author for me!

The narration was pure perfection! Sam and Muffy did a fantastic job yet again!

A not too dark ending for Ellie and Kayne

I’ve really enjoyed this series, and Ruined is the perfect ending for Ellie and Kayne, without giving anything away, I will say, as expected, there was lots of sexy time (erotic for want of a word), involving group sex and a lot of kink. Lots of emotional moments, and of course super happy moments for this lovely group. Continuing their perfect streak with the narration is Sam Cawley and Muffy Newtown. All that said, I think I’m all kinked out, so I’ll be leaving this series alone for now. CJ and Tara will just have to wait.

Addictive. Raw. Captivating.

Never has knocked me on my a*s and given me another piece of the puzzle that is Kayne and Ellie's story.

Book three is the last book to this couple's relationship and my god was in amazing. This series just keeps getting better and better, and the further I get into the plot, the harder I know it is going to be letting this series go. Like I've said before, I am going to have one hell of a book hangover.

In this installment of Kayne and Ellie's story, we get to see more highs and lows in their marriage, how they make their lifestyle work within the marriage and we watch them grow as a couple, navigating through struggles together and filled with heartache and hurt and pain, but there is also so much joy in this book. They grow as a family and it is amazing to see, I invest so much time into couples in a book and I always enjoy watching them grow together and watching the author unfold was is an incredible story... and the heat... the passion, lust, love, dirty and hot sex doesn't dull, if anything it intensifies, BIG TIME! I will give you fair warning now. Make sure you have a glass of wine, or something cool to drink, a fresh pair of panties and a fan, because i guarantee you are going to need them. I actually had to take breaks, put it down and go and do something else for a while, because it got that HOT and that intense that I quite literally sweat and i was burning up... I love kink.. LOVE IT, and this book hit me in the right spot, then the author goes and doubles it. She seriously is a master at her craft and I cannot praise her enough on how she has pieced together this series and this couples love story. It's definitely a MUST READ. But PLEASE be warned that this is dark, gritty, kinky as hell and not for everyone, but if these things intrigue you then I HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Reading this and listening to this series as an audiobook were two different experiences but they were both just as amazing. Sam Crowley and Muffy Newtown were absolutely incredible as narrators and the author choice perfectly.

The perfect conclusion for Kayne and Ellie 10⭐️

I could not possibly ask or wish for a better ending to Kayne and Kittens love story ❤️ my only complaint is that I didn't realize it was a novella and wanted to cry when it was over so soon. I could listen to HOURS more of this couple. Or should I say quad? I fell in love with Jet in book one finally got my wish in book 3 😍🔥🔥🔥🤤. I won't give anything away, but I will say THANK YOU to M. Never for finally granting mine (and Ellie's) wish. ❤️ yummmm!!! This series is absolutely everything and I can't recommend it enough! Fantastic narration and a smoldering hot unconventional love story!

Kayne & Ellie Stevens

▪▪▪Review contains spoilers▪▪▪

Audible Escapes review. Dual POV. Book 3 in the 5 book Decadence After Dark series. Narrators: Muffy's voice drives me nuts with the growl but Sam does a great job. Trigger warnings: BDSM, pet play, collaring, spanking with a crop, anal, 4-way (London, Jett, Kayne & Ellie), girl on girl (Ellie & London), 3-way/dp (Kayne, Ellie & Jett), biting, sex swing, blindfold, toys, wax play, bondage, missing boys, memories of child abuse in foster care.

**uncertain of the spelling of character names**

Kayne Stevens (aka Peanut Butter, Savage) & Ellie Stevens (aka kitten, killer, sweet thing, brat) have been married for 4 years. On their 1st anniversary they tattooed their gun shot scars "That which does not destroy us" hers on her ribs, his on his shoulder, to go with his previous tattoos of barbed wire around his bicep, "A certain kind of darkness is needed to see the stars" on his ribs, and a compass with her name over the needle pointing north over his heart. He was shot by Javier in book one and she was shot by Michael in book two. He killed for Ellie, saved the girls from Javier's home and got Ellie back. 6 months after he got married, he & Jett retired as black operatives from Endeavor after working one last mission. 6 months later the Honolulu Commander of the SWAT team that helped rescue Ellie offered Jett & Kayne a job.  She always wears a slave collar and currently runs a foundation called "To catch a falling star," named after Kayne's tattoo sending survivors and their families on trips, 400 families up to this point. They still use "cupcake" as their safe word. He's ready for kids & Ellie wants dp with Jett & Kayne. Kayne gave her a white Wrangler Rubicon Jeep while he still has a Jaguar. Kayne goes on a hike with Layla & Jett when London encourages her to try for a baby and she tells London that Kayne has approved the dp if she's still ok with it. They have a wild night granting Ellie's wish for dp. The story skips forward 6 months, Ellie is frustrated that she's not pregnant yet. Jett & Kayne go for a training weekend with the SWAT team and Ellie visits London who just cut her hair. Ellie starts bleeding, London takes her to the ER & Ellie finds out she's pregnant. While Ellie & Londyn are in the ER 2 missing boys are found and their captor, Charles Tinley, blew up his house harming several SWAT officers. She remembers that their wedding bands are engraved "Ruined by him" on hers and "Owned by her" on his when she hears his voice outside her ER room. Jett's face was cut under his eye by shrapnel but they're both ok and the boys were saved. The story moves forward again & she's 6 months pregnant for a boy, they argue because he's been sullen and distant. She storms off angry and eventually goes to see Jett. London is pregnant for a girl, their 3rd baby. Jett & Ellie talk & he reveals that he's known about Kayne's mom since before they went undercover together 10 years ago. Kayne shows up and Jett finally tells Kayne about his mom. The story jumps forward again to their baby being a week late, her water breaks, she spends 2 hours pushing before the head comes out but the cord is wrapped around the baby's neck, AJ is safely born moments later. Kayne starts giving AJ fatherly advice while Ellie sleeps. The story then moves forward to AJ at 2 1/2 years old, Ellie's 8 months pregnant for their 2nd baby, a girl.

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥HOT🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

This is just so hot. You need to read/listen to the first 2 books in the series as this is a little extra to the Kayne and Ellie love. I love the relationship between the 4 Jett and London are amazing and I can't wait to start Elicit as I need to know more about them together. This book is almost all sex but M Never still brings the emotion out. This is a great end to Kayne and Ellie's story. It's only a short story but OMG does M Never fit so much in. If you have listened to the first two books this is a must listen. The narration was just perfect it does not get better that Sam and Muffy.
