Ruined (The Eternal Balance, #1)Hell is looking for a way to break loose…

Jax lost the genetic lottery. Descended from Cain, the world's first murderer, he's plagued by a curse that demands violence in exchange for his happiness. He left everything behind, including the girl he loved, but thriving on the pain of others is lonely… And it's killing him.

After a series of heartbreaking losses, Samantha put rubber to pavement and headed for college as fast as her clunker could carry her. But she can't outrun her problems. When an attack at school drives her back home, she's thrown into the path of a past—and a guy—she's been trying to forget.

Sam strains Jax's control over his darkness, but running isn't an option this time. Someone—or, something—followed her home from school: a ruthless monster with a twisted plan centuries in the making. Forced together to survive, and fighting an attraction that could destroy them both, Jax and Sam must stop a killer bent on revenge.

My Thoughts on the Book

Talk about tormented! Jax is living with a demon inside of him and in love with a girl he can never trust himself to have. Jax spends a good portion of the book trying to push Samantha away but it is clear he loves her and she loves him, even the demon can't keep them apart. I loved the pain that Jax goes through, it really makes him a great character. The story and plot are great but I found at times that solutions and characters came out of know where, especially when Jax is such a loaner by nature. The ending was great, not quite an HEA but not a cliff hanger either which is a nice set up for the next book. Looking forward to it.
