I told him I was twenty-four.
I told him my name was Olivia.
I thought that I would have a one-night stand and be done with him.
I didn’t know that he was my new piano instructor for the next six months…
We would come together and fall apart. After him, every man was ruined.
If I knew what I know now, I wouldn’t have ...more
Now I thought I knew what I was getting with Calia Read's "Ruin You Completely" but how wrong was I? This was unlike any other teacher/ student romance I've ever read and actually, it was a refreshing change. This was not the kind of book that filled me with excitement with all the cloak and dagger secrecy surrounding a forbidden romance. Instead I ...more

This is my second book that I'm reading by Calia Read and I fell in love with her writing after reading Unravel; to be honest I never felt the same after reading it. I loved it but it also wrecked me and I had a hard time after that finding a really good book. So I really hope this one will wreck me too.

Ruin You Completely is part of a series but in all honesty can definitely be read as a standalone. I have read the other books and all I knew what that there was a huge backstory to Mathias. He is the oldest o ...more

Calia Read knows how to write an angsty tale. This book was Hot, Exciting and Amazing!!!
I finally met a Sloane now I need to meet them all. This book can be read as a standalone.
Ruin You Completely is the third book in the Sloan Brothers series by Calia Read. We finally get Mathias's story. In the first two books we received glimpses and teases of Mathias just enough to know there would be an epic story behind the moody, broody brother. I, for one, could not wait. I'm always gravitating to the bad boy, the loner, the outcast, what ever you want to call them. They're the guys in the book that exude the killer vibe. Stay away and whatever you do, don't try to talk t...more

I won’t get into too much detailing because I hate spoiling or giving the book away. I’ll go straight ahead to what I found ...more
I first fell in love with Mathias Sloan over two years ago while reading the first two Sloan Brothers. He was the secretive and charismatic older brother I wanted desperately to know all about. You know the saying, “Careful what you wish for.” In this installment, Mathias is revealed in all his complicated and heartbreaking glory. The Prologue is riveting; I was com ...more
This was my second Calia Read story but my first introduction to the Sloan Brothers. Let’s just say I will be reading the other two very, very soon.
Calia Read has no problem drawing a reader into the story. In RUIN YOU COMPLETELY, she used the romantic setting of music (specifically piano, my favorite instrument, and Germany. Europe always gets me and sets you up for falling in love).
Mathias Sloan… I don’t know much about his brothers Macsen and Thayer but damn if the genetics run deep ...more
Mathias Sloan was headed for greatness until an accident took away his dreams and ambitions. He walked away from the world of music.
So when he is approached to teach a prodigy who just needs a little push in is grandparents hometown, Garmish, Germany. He needs a little motivation to take the job.
With his emotions on high the night before starting his 6 month teaching gig, he heads out ...more
Please tell me this isn't the end... I'm desperate to know more about the Sloan Brother's coupling and family dynamics... Will they be able to push beyond the past?
