20800343Everything done in darkness, will eventually be brought into the light.

I ran, but all it did was keep me one step ahead of my past. I tried to start over; new name, new identity. But you can't change your soul.
A fresh start at college was just what I needed. For a while, it worked. I was the party girl, the one that seemed confident, but it was a lie.
When guys kissed me--I felt only pain.
When they touched me--Nothing but fear.

Deep inside, every girl wants to be the beauty in the story, to find someone that will see you as their world.
But the truth? I was the beast. And as much as I wanted redemption, I wasn't fool enough to think I'd ever get it.
Until he walked into my life.

I wasn't prepared to fall for someone. My scars were too deep, the wounds too raw. But he offered me peace, he offered me security. I should have known it was just another lie--I should have known that falling in love with my professor was a bad idea.
But I was powerless to stop myself from falling.
And he was powerless to catch me.

Because the darkness finally caught up to me, and as fate would have it, a cruel twist almost bled me dry. But I'm stronger than I knew. I'm stronger than you think.
You think you know my story, but you don't....after all everyone has Shame in their lives-- and I'm no longer afraid to show you mine.

My Thoughts on the Book

This is the final book in the Ruin series and it packs a big punch. Lisa on the surface looks like she is the perfect college student, happy confident and easy going. But underneath she has had an experience none of us would ever want to have, she came out better for it but it left her with a lot of guilt, guilt she did not deserve. Then the met Tristan, who seemed to love and hate her at the same time but as he got to know her, he could never hate her. This book was wonderful and I was never sure of Tristan at the beginning but I very much wanted him to be the one for Lisa, she deserved an HEA after what she went through. Like all of the other books in the series there is wonderful heart felt emotion and great humor too. The perfect balance that will make you come back to Rachel's books again and again.
