He Will Be My Ruin - RWB teaser 1



The USA TODAY bestselling author of the Ten Tiny Breaths and Burying Water series makes her suspense debut with this sexy, heartpounding story of a young woman determined to find justice after her best friend’s death, a story pulsing with the “intense, hot, emotional” (Colleen Hoover) writing that exhilarates her legions of fans.

A woman who almost had it all . . .

On the surface, Celine Gonzalez had everything a twenty-eight-year-old woman could want: a one-bedroom apartment on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, a job that (mostly) paid the bills, and an acceptance letter to the prestigious Hollingsworth Institute of Art, where she would finally live out her dream of becoming an antiques appraiser for a major auction house. All she had worked so hard to achieve was finally within her reach. So why would she kill herself?

A man who was supposed to be her salvation . . .

Maggie Sparkes arrives in New York City to pack up what’s left of her best friend’s belongings after a suicide that has left everyone stunned. The police have deemed the evidence conclusive: Celine got into bed, downed a lethal cocktail of pills and vodka, and never woke up. But when Maggie discovers a scandalous photograph in a lock box hidden in Celine’s apartment, she begins asking questions. Questions about the man Celine fell in love with. The man she never told anyone about, not even Maggie. The man Celine believed would change her life.

Until he became her ruin.

On the hunt for evidence that will force the police to reopen the case, Maggie uncovers more than she bargained for about Celine’s private life—and inadvertently puts herself on the radar of a killer. A killer who will stop at nothing to keep his crimes undiscovered.


I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with a copy in advance for an honest review.

HE WILL BE MY RUIN is a gripping, page-turner! I was on the edge of my seat trying to figure out what happened, especially after K.A. Tucker sucked me in with the amazing prologue. This book has so many twists and turns and through the entire book no one is off your suspect list. I loved how we are given a lead character, who cared so much for her friend that she never questions what it may cost to be uncovering this mystery. Maggie only thinks about Celine and that her friend deserves to have the truth revealed about her death. This was the first book I have read by K.A. Tucker but I can say it will not be the last. I loved the many layers she gave: unwavering loyalty, suspense, mystery, romance, heartbreak and so many different complex characters!!!

Maggie has come back after finding out that her friend Celine has died. It has been ruled a suicide but she doesn’t believe that Celine was capable of that. All the evidence or feelings Maggie is getting lead her to believe that more happened and she is determined to find out at all cost.

Soon Maggie is staying in Celine’s old place, going to her job, and talking to anyone that can give her a clue as to what happened, since the police won’t help. The problem is how much do you want to delve into your friends secrets? What might you uncover, and once you do it can’t be unknown? You have to read this book to see if you are right in your guesses along the way or if the twists and turns will shock you!

HE WILL BE MY RUIN was an amazing book that I just couldn’t put down. It had me wanting to know everything right from the beginning and there was definitely enough crumbs left along the way to make me want the whole cookie. I love that Maggie is strong and independent, I do wish that we had got a little more in her epilogue but maybe we will just get another book!!! I would definitely recommend this book and I can’t wait to read whatever comes next. I am giving it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

My wrists burn.

Hours of trying to break free of the rope that binds my hands behind my back have left them raw, the rough cord scrubbing away my skin and cutting into my flesh. I’m sure I’ll have unsightly scars.

Not that it will matter when I’m dead.

I resigned myself to that reality around the time that I finally let go of my bladder. Now I simply lie here, in a pool of urine and vomit, my teeth numb from knocking with each bump in the road, my body frozen by the cold.

Trying to ignore the darkness as I fight against the panic that consumes me. I could suffocate from the anxiety alone.

He knows that.

Now he’s exploiting it. That must be what he does—he uncovers your secrets, your fears, your flaws—and he uses them against you. He did it to Celine.

And now he’s doing it to me.

That’s why I’m in a cramped trunk, my lungs working overtime against a limited supply of oxygen while my imagination runs wild with what may be waiting for me at the end of this ride.

My racing heart ready to explode.

The car hits an especially deep pothole, rattling my bones. I’ve been trapped in here for so long. Hours. Days. I have no idea. Long enough to run through every mistake that I made.

How I trusted him, how I fell for his charm, how I believed his lies. How I made it so easy for him to do this to me.

How Celine made it so easy for him, by letting him get close.

Before he killed her.

Just like he’s going to kill me.
