I was scared to start this book because I've fallen so hard for Kayne and Ellie I figured it would be tough to for the author to finish their story gracefully instead of the normal corny endings we so often get.

Wrong. I was so wrong. I devoured this short and sweet epilogue within about an hour. It took me up and down, but I don't believe in spoilers.
What I will say is that we get to know Kayne a lot better, through Ellie, and there are some truly cute parts with him. And it was truly wonderfu

Amazing epilogue for Kayne and Ellie. Can't wait to read about Ellie's sister and Juice.

I thought this epilogue was almost perfection, I wanted more Kayne POV's throughout. I really felt like this tied books #1 & 2 together. Kitten was HILARIOUS! I love her best when she is bad. It was way more of a story than I thought it was gonna be. I felt it was just a here is how they are doing update. Oh No! To me it was a FULL Story! I loved Jett & London. Damn I am way more curious about her now. I want her past story & how she came to be @ Mansion really

This series had it all. Weird friendships, enemies and revenge, drama -too much-, sexy and over the top wild moments, tortured heroin, and a broken -stalker- alpha hero. Yeah, the perfect combination.

This was the perfect closure. I couldn't ask for more. The characters were perfect and everything just fell into it's right place. This was how it was supposed to be for them since day one.

Sweet, short, & EXTREMELY sexy! As much as it breaks my heart to see Kanye and Ellie's story come to an end, I couldn't imagine A better ending for them! Or should I even call it an ending but more of a beginning.. Not too sure. But it was completely amazing. Now I'm ready for Jett!!

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Ruined by M. Never is book Three in the "Decadence After Dark" series. This concludes the story of Ellie and Kayne. You do have to read the previous books I felt to fully enjoy this book. This book was wonderful! It is basically and epilogue that ties up everything and catches us up what is going on within their lives today. This has been a really emotional series and this was a great way to put 'the cherry on top' of it.

M. Never has written the most amazing Epilogue to Kayne and Ellie’s story that could have ever been written. Wow, she really nailed this conclusion to this dark and captive journey that Kayne and his Cupcake have been over the past two books. I am not saying I am surprised by this book, because honestly, M. is a fantastic writer, I just didn’t know I was going to end up feeling such a peace at where these two ended up.

If you have been on this journey through books one and two, you know that thin

I loved the conclusion to this series. It was passionate and exciting!
We finally see our couple together, really together. They get to plan their life, they get to make dreams and they finally get to be a real family.
This novella was a very fun read. Quick, sensual and very entertaining.
The perfect ending to this extremely dark journey. I won't say much more because I don't want to spoil it for you.
A must read if you enjoyed Kayne & Ellie's rocky path!
Great job!!!!

4 Stars from me.

The quintessential perfect ending to Kayne & Ellie's story. Its really awesome to see how to people can survive some horrible abuse/circumstances & find passion again let alone real love. Kayne is a great alpha, Dom & he doesn't let us down in this book at all. I am ready for Jett & London's story now !!

Ruined by M.Never is the third book in the Decadence After Dark series. I admit during Owned I threw my Kindle across the living room… I eventually picked it up and returned to what has been dubbed my Ultimate Mind F&CK book! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE M. Never and this series!

Ruined has not only ruined me but probably my panty collection! Holy Hot Damn Batman! Geez! I’ll take one or two… please! I love the way M weaves this story, always leaving you wanting more! I’m certain I won’t ever be able t

I waited for this book and then I devoured it -- It is with bittersweet emotion that I write this review. Bitter because, this book signifies the end of Kayne & Ellie's story, one of my favorite couples. Sweet, because this book just has so much story jam packed into it's pages, it may be a novella - but it is a novel in terms of plot and character development. Oh and never fear, M. Never brings the heat, oh does she ever! This book is a 5 star Hot. As.#E£L story that will leave you needing ...more

I LOVE KAYNE..As I told, I didn't like her much here too..Also, gosh! she wanted to sleep with Jett & Jett too wanted to do everything with her. I am not judging anyone here but, when you love someone somuch, how do you even think about other or lust..Ok even in a weakness if you lust, why act on int. I don't like & agree with it. What shocked me more was Kayne agreed to do that..I didn't like that..Also, Kayne is never intrested in any other women, why is Ellie..He agrees for anything o ...more
I will miss these two- Kayne rivers, Kayne Roberts, Kayne Stenens And Ellie!!! I enjoy them a lot :) So steamy together . And this author( M. Never )is now one of my favorite one`s now.. OMG the steam on those pages. Loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!! ...more
Glad they had a wrap up for Kayne and Ellie. I am also glad that I stuck with this series because the first one was pushing my limits.

I'd be perfectly fine without detailed account of childbirth, but ok. A bit forced conclusion of the story.

Fabulous epilogue / novella. It's hot, steamy and sexy but closes off Kayne and Ellie's story very well, especially after their very dark beginning! I also loved Jett, so can't wait to read his and London's book - I recommend this series if you love it a bit dark and dirty - 4.5 stars

Man oh man ! This was just as steamy and romantic as the first two books. I hated how short this was, but I truly enjoyed this trilogy.

Ellie is still freaking awesome! I totally love how strong she has become in spite of everything that went on in her life. She is happily married to Kayne and begins to wonder about having kids. I think her reasons for not wanting kids were sound, but after speaking with London I think she broke down and understood that kids would work out great for her and Kayne
