Publisher's Summary

"I was utterly consumed." (Rachel Grey, USA Today best-selling author) 

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 on which he owns everything - 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 heard first.

Ruin.

Loved the audiobook the story was well written and the characters are interesting. The game that Edward played, were ruthless against his wife and anyone that stood in his way.
The narrator was clearly spoken and easy to understand.

Well done!!!

Loved the story. Loved the characters. Loved the audible narration. This book was a perfect combination. But those damn cliffhangers kill me. Can't wait to dive into book 3.

Wow okay

Okay can I just say the narrators were excellent! But oh my, I didn’t see the story going down this particular track... I mean it’s still a really good book, 100% worth the credit but damn I needed to pause it at some points because it was a bit much.

Keen to listen to the next book ❤️

Ceila’s story -part 2

Hudson Pierce’s old partner in manipulation is getting played by her husband Edward - who is not a particularly sympathetic character and matches her easily in game playing and manipulation. Despite being born into wealthy families, Both Edward and Celia have baggage form abusive, difficult childhoods, and inattentive parents. Also as mean as Celia has been in the past, you have to feel bad for the way she is being isolated by Edward. Some of their stories were predictable but there were a few surprises, and their interactions with each other made for interesting dialogue. The chemistry and sex scenes are hot but the eventual romance is a bit of a stretch, especially when Celia spills her guts and the reader gets very little of Edward’s remorse at his treatment of her. A good story though in terms of moving the larger narrative along. Elena Wolfe carried most of the narration and while she is outstanding, Shane East should have narrated more of Edward. Hopefully that will be rectified in the next installment. Even better would be if we had a duet performance.

TRIGGER WARNING

The story is well worth the read. I wasn't sure if I wanted to read book 2 after reading the 1st in the series only because it was very slow and frustrating. There are some things in the book that could trigger you if you are sensitive to acts of sexual deviance such as underage non-consensual sexual acts.

Ruin

This series is so good! Edward is a handsome, sexy b@stard. He is forcing Celia to open up honestly to him but he does not give her much. He had the nerve to take her to the place he planned to kill her. There he admitted he never cheated on either of his wives. She is truly trapped on a beautiful island where Edward owns everything and everyone. He is a master manipulator. Both Celia and Edward have a lot of baggage. Not that Celia is innocent, but at this point in their story, I am finding it very hard to like Edward but his admission about not cheating makes him a little better. His sister is terrible. She cannot stand Celia. This book kept me wanting to know what would happen and what Edward will do next. I am looking forward to Revenge. Elena Wolfe and Shane East did an awesome job although Elena did the majority of the narration.

Twisted but compelling

I discovered something about myself while reading this story. I have no desire to give up my independence to a man, not even if he gives me hot sex and a life of leisure on a beautiful island. I chafed at that the entire time I was listening to this story. Edward is still a fascinating character, but I felt resentment toward him. I couldn't stop listening though as the story unwound and revealed more about these compelling characters. The narration was great as always, and Shane East did a fantastic job voicing Edward, especially in the big reveal chapter about what happened to Celia when she was a child. He was superb in conveying all the emotions and with voicing Celia in that highly emotional scene. The author also wrote that perfectly.

It was a breakthrough and hugely impactful. Then the author put in a scene that wound me right back up with so much dread and disgust that I couldn't warm up to Edward at all after that. Traumatizing someone doesn't help them get over past trauma, regardless if there is a better outcome than before. It would set that person back in their recovery. That is why you have to go to school to become a psychiatrist. Amateurs don't know what they are doing. I just really hated this scene, but it didn't put me off reading the next book. I need to know how the story ends, and I also like a good revenge plot.

What a ride!!!!

Laurelin Paige is an evil genius!! I mean it!! The plotting and pace of this story is like a putting on a show! it's a master class in character development if I ever saw one. She is able to weave so much into Celia's past that we are able to now go and re-think all of the past times you've wanted to kill her in the other stories. After Fixed Forever I basically know where they as a couple are going, but the journey is definitely a doozy!! Elena Wolfe and Shane East performed their hearts out!! I can't even imagine what will be happening in te next 2 books of thos story! All I can say is that this audiobook is unputdownable and a total ride!! Wow!!

Phenomenal Story

I just adore Laurelin Paige's books. Ruin continues this quartet. Her characters are so strong the books have all the emotions that I feel sure we will all be exhausted by the time we have completed this story. I love the way she writes as I've said before I feel she knows what I love and writes it just for me, I hope you feel the same. This series is exceptional, I'm still not sure on Edward yet but I do hope for Celia's sake after we hear what she has been put through I think she deserves a HEA. Elena Wolfe's narration is superb she never let's you down.🥰🥰🥰
