Ruined is book four in the She Who Dares series, but can be read as a standalone.

I like to fuck. A lot. Anywhere, anyway, as long as I’m shooting my load in or on some pretty young thing I’m good. In fact, scrap that, they don’t even have to be pretty. What can I say? I’m an equal opportunities kind of guy.
I pride myself on being able to turn even the most self-respe

I love LP's writing style...honestly, she is one witty chick.

Hugo is a nut, an absolute whack job and he had me in hysterics (Gaz stole the show for me).
Molly was....likeable, but hated that she yanked the good old doctor's chain.

I have to admit, I am a hero/heroine only love story lovin' kind of girl, and Hugo is a major dawg playa. So I went into this read strictly from a comedy type of read rather than a romantic read. So be warned - both characters stray and their commitment to one ano

YEAH YOU HEARD ME! I have more respect to myself than lowering myself to the level of this so called "Hero".. I don't need his chauvinistic's disgusting a$$ in everything that moves all over the place in this book!!!

This no way romantic or sexy! Just plain disgusting and degrading towards women!...

"No-one ever said that love was straight forward. The heart doesn't play fair."

I knew this was going to be a phenomenal read! I LOVED Theo and Lilly's story and I didn't think it could be topped, but this story...Hugo and Molly's story...was hands down A-MAZING! It was crazy hot with such intense emotion. The writing is flawless, and the characters are so well developed and human that you can't help but fall in love with them! I laughed...I cried...I cringed...and...I even fis

There are manwhores and then theres Hugo who got a double phd in manwhoreology. He was such a disgusting, desperate slut in the first 3 books, it wouldve a taken ALOT to convince me he changed. The guy was sick as in needed serious therapy. This is the kinda character who i knew in a couple years wouldve cheated on molly, and molly would forgive him so i guess they were a good match.

There are some books you read, finish the story and move on. THIS IS NOT THAT BOOK? It is technically book 4 in the series, but can 100% be read standalone.

Hugo is a horny, woman loving, booze drinking, man whore. And I love every minute of it. He is crazy, and loveable and we really see a new side to him. He is also sweet and loyal to those who he considers friends. And don’t get me started on Gaz, the lazy horny dog!

Molly is the sweet girl. She almost comes off as innocent, until she opens he

Firstly before I get into this I have 1 thing to say, and loud.....THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I HAVE EVER READ....and these are my reasons why!

* The blurb had me hooked and wanting more
* Emotions - cackling in laughter (dog poo scene, stag weekend scene!)one minute and then shouting at my kindle the next....'admit you a-hole'!
* Fantastically written by a very talented author
* Relationships between characters reminded me of me and my friends growing up
* Full of English-isms!
* Sex was off the c

The Good
We first met Hugo in the previous She Who Dares books and he was anything but a secondary character. He didn’t say much but when he did it was priceless. Every scene he was in, he owned it. His attitude, his antics and his pearls of wisdom were genius.

That is why everyone who read the first three books were chomping at the bit to get hold of Hugo’s book, including me. I wanted to read a book about a complete filter-less man-whore. I wanted to know more about who Hugo was and why he was t

I love manwhore stories! 'Ruined' is a story of a manwhore, Hugo Harrison, who doesn't have a reason to grow-up. Hugo has it all, money, successful businesses, women at his beck and call, and good friends. Hugo obsessively enjoys sex, he doesn't go a day without it. He's a commitment phobe, as soon as there is any sign of feelings Hugo run for the hills. Molly and Hugo had several trysts and when Molly shares her feelings, Hugo in turns pushes her away.

Molly is a good girl, a good friend and a r

AHHH LP!! YOU ARE KILLING ME!! I knew as soon as I picked up this book that I was about to get into a "If you disturb me while reading you're gonna lose a body part" mode. I wasn't wrong. I innocently decided to read Ruin while taking a break from packing to move. No packing was done for the last 12 hours much to my husbands dismay.

Hugo and Molly's story wrecked me in an unconventional way. These two have always been on a crash course for love in my opinion, but neither one of them are the type

I know it says that this can be read as a stand alone but i don't know that i would have enjoyed it as much, had i not read the first three if it were up to me i would tell people to definitely read books 1-3 before reading this...Hugo is such a huge part of all the other books and i just don't think that you can truly appreciate the guy and all his sluttiness unless you've read all about the shenanigans he pulls in the earlier books!

If this book was a purely romantic escapade than it would have been a one star for me because it fails dismally in that 'love cures all instantly' department.If you can ignore that fact & want a book that reads true to the nature of the beast than this book shines bright & is deserving of a five sexual stars.

The hero fucks his way through a plethora of women in between hooking up with the leading lady of the story without an ounce of discernibly remorse though this is done with no malicious atte

I actually liked Hugo in the previous books. I think it's because we got a glimpse to the same goodness within him that Molly sees. This book was no different. We actually get to see more into the perversion that makes him Hugo. The sex scenes were HOT!! Unfortunately, most of them are not between the main characters lol!! Hugo hurt Molly so much. But I didn't agree with her stringing along Dr. Alex. I get that you can love two people at once, but she knew she wasn't giving Alex enough. I felt s ...more

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
I don't ever, and I mean EVER read a book out of series. I saw this one and it said that it could be read as a stand-alone, and I picked it up. Even so, I still usually start from the beginning. This was so out of context for me. But ANYWAY, it was a great book. I enjoyed it so much that I might have to go back and read the others, lol.

I enjoyed all the characters, every last one of them. I laughed so many times out loud, wondering where you can

I saw this book being pimped on Facebook and the blurb sounded great and the cover was pretty hot, so I bought it.

Unfortunately, I found the book unreadable and therefore it was a DNF for me.

Now I realise I am in the minority as many people have rated this book 4 or 5* but I just couldn't push through the extremely bad editing. I've read a lot of books and never have I come across a published book that has been edited by someone who hasn't a clue about the rules of basic punctuation. That's if t

Ruined by LP Lovell is the fourth book in her She Who Dares series but CAN be read as a standalone. This book, unlike the three predecessors focuses on Hugo and Molly, best friends of the main couple in books 1-3.

Picture the biggest manwhore ever. A gorgeous man with tons of sex-appeal that promises a fantastic time but makes no promises, no commitments. Then multiply that by 1,000 and you have Hugo.

Molly is a good girl except when it comes to Hugo. Hugo lets her be her true self. Problem is, Hu

HOLY HELL!!! This is my first book by LP Lovell and I can say that I will be reading more! This book not only contains hot sex but also humor, love and lust. Its an all around amazing book.

Loved, Loved, Loved Hugo and Molly, their chemistry is out of this world hot. Hugo is a total manwhore and doesn't even deny it. He is not the relationship kind of guy that is until Molly creeps in and gets under his skin before he can stop it. Molly is fun l

I love this whole series. Hugo doesn't do relationships at all, not even friends with girls , not until Molly. Molly is a sweet girl who wants things dirty. Molly and Hogo have slept together in the past and Molly put a stop to it when she realized she was getting feelings for him. now she seeing alex a dr but her friendship with Hugo is growing along with her feelings, but when she decides she will have what she wants with Hu
4 stars for writing, -1 star for Hugo and Molly. I felt guilty about just giving this one star b/c it's really well written.

I hate giving one star to an author who can really write. But....this really was...just...hmm......icky. I wonder sometimes if some authors really do hate particular heroines, because a strong case can be made for that exact situation in this book. I just felt sorry for Molly and just kinda felt sorry for Hugo, too. Oh well, just my opinion. You may feel differently

this is not my book, even i do love Theo and Lily, but not Hugo and Molly.
Stupid of them, wasted their time and caused Alex hurt.

Alex may not a good guy but he didn't deserve what he need to have. If Molly wants her wild, stay with Hugo, she needs to, she kept Alex becuase she thought it is her life boat.

I don't agree it.

I loved loved loved Hugo and Molly's story. These two together are not only crazy, in a good way, because they make you laugh,oh boy fan yourself,they are totally scorching hot!! The chemistry off the chart!!!
There are laugh and tears too and I got plenty mad but knowing Hugo I knew this was going to happen!!!
A beautiful story...and of course it's fun and sexy too!

Wow! Now that is a way to end a series, I'm so glad Hugo and Molly had their own book. I know this might not appeal to everyone because of the language and how Hugo presents himself. But this is Hugo, it's how he was in the first three books. I loved the first three books from this series and then this beauty...Ruined. Hugo....such a man whore, like one of the biggest I have ever met. And his language is very colorful.

Literally sex....and more sex. Well it is Hugo, what else did I expect. I lov
