I met Mathias Sloan in a club.
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

It’s the typical student-teacher taboo relationship where the student, upcoming piano prodigy Katja Schwartz, and broody instructor Mathias Sloan embark on a tumultuous off limits relationship…

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

Before Review:
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.

“Because of him I learned that there’s a learning curve to love. Because of him I realized that there’s always that one person that destroys and sends you back into the world to fend for yourself. And it doesn’t matter how hard they hurt you. Whether you like it or not, the scars on your heart spell out their name.”

This was on the top of my list for highly anticipated books in 2015 and it ended up just being an okay read for me. I felt no love connection between Mathias & Katja. They definitely had a sexual attraction. The story had too much angst and took Mathias way too long to realize his love for Katia. ...more

Trying to seduce a Sloan was like taming a wild animal. It wasn't an easy feat. But if you finally got them to give up, they would give you everything they had.

Mathias Sloan's passion for life has been gone for awhile and he is just going through the motions. When an opportunity to teach piano to a student in Germany comes up, he begrudgingly takes it. But now he is finding a spark again in the presence of his new student, Katja. Unfortunately she is supposed to be off limits. An instant spark g

After having read the previous two books in the series, I wasn't sure what to expect from oldest Sloan brother, Mathias. When we met Mathias in the previous books in the series, he was always a bit standoffish, but with RUIN YOU COMPLETELY we finally get the story behind Mathias and why he's the way he is.

Hired by his grandparents friend to be their granddaughter's piano instructor, Mathias finds himself in Germany trying to get Katja ready for competition while fighting his growing attraction

I let some time pass since reading the other Sloan Brothers books, and I wish I'd read Mathias and Katjas story sooner. Ruin You Completely was a very easy and enjoyable read, although I do feel like Mathias took a long time to get his shit together. 4.5 stars!

Mathias’ story. I had been desperately waiting for this. He completely entranced me from his first appearance in Every Which Way. It was easy to see that the man we met in those few scenes was deeply tortured and in desperate need of salvation.
Mathias is my favorite of the brothers. His desperate love of music and need for control in everything he did was easily relatable to me. He further called to my soul with the deep and far-reaching pain he so beautifully carried with him. It was evident fr

Ruin You Completely was a good student / teacher romance. I really enjoyed that it had a different feel to it. I liked that it didn’t take place in a classroom or school seting but between Mathias Sloan, an American piano tacher and his 19 years old German student, Katja Schwartz.

A chance meting in a club leads to a heated attraction, both not knowing who the other is. The following day when piano lessons start the attraction is still there but it is clear that this is a relationship that needs

Be prepared to be RUINED! This book sucks you in! You will feel for her and him as you read along in this story of a relationship that is not meant to be. He has his secrets and is complex. She is talented, beautiful and irresistible.

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.

Stop whatever you're doing, the minute this book comes out, and read it. Words cannot even begin to express what this book did to me. I am head over heels in love with it. Mathias and Katja will forever have a huge place in my heart. <3 ...more

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

**While I highly recommend reading the first two books, you don’t have in order to enjoy this one. It is considered a standalone. **

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

Ruin You Completely has left me just in a stage of, “I just can’t pick up another book at the moment.” It completely grabbed me by the heart within the first few pages and did not let go. I’m at the point of suffering such a huge hangover that I have to have a somewhat large magazine break.

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

This author has gone and brought to life three delicious brothers, who with each of them have their own story to tell. In this one she brings you Mathias whom having met him periodically in the previous novels becomes loud and clear in this one. What was eluded to at the family gathering you get the inside scoop in what was going on. He has a secret too that makes for a more intriguing read then the other two.

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

This was my first Sloan Brothers Book to read, and I went and immediately got the other two books in the series!

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

Not sure why I rated the other books so low, but I just loved this one! I must have been half crazy when I rated the others. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I wasn't blown away. I was left with some disappointment, a desire to know more of the coupling after they finally set pride aside.

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?

I didn't favor this one as much as the other two. There was a whole lot of angst and not enough feel-good stuff going on. Kinda sucked a lot of the enjoyment from the book. Feel so bad for Lukas. Poor guy should of gotten the girl, sweetheart that he is.
