Ruin Me puts a unique spin on the usual Vegas-Hookup stories and brings to focus a character that is more than a little damaged. Mac had a different kind of horror filled past and seeing how that changed who he was when it came to Angel was very intriguing. They had such amazing chemistry together but he was fighting until the very end, thinking that he wasn't enough for Angel past a quick hook-up. I really liked getting to see Angel push past his defenses and it ma

I absolutely loved this book and devoured it today, couldn't put it down until I finished. I love the writing style of Bella Love Wins and this is the first I've read of Shiloh Walker. They did an amazing job, I felt their heart ache and I cried so hard. Angel Halliwell and Devin Xavier Mackenzie Knight ( Mac) hooked up but the condom broke. Too bad they didn't exchange full names and he didn't get her number. But when he finds out about her pregnancy, I loved how he stepped up to be a Dad. But ...more

I've read several books from this two author's and I loved them dearly and now they had done the amazing thing of co-writing a book and let's just say that Dayum... They nailed it.
They both have a hot, breathtaking, intense writing that will give you not only hot flashes but also so much joy.
Ruin Me tells the stories of Angel and Devin.
I just need to give you an advise, read Unbreak Me first...You'll see why...
After one wild night of passion they parted ways but she was left with a secret...
April Symes
This is such an fabulous read because of the emotional, sexy angsty, and beautiful story. The romance is one that will hook you from start to finish.
These are two people who just share a life changing event- a hook up in Vegas and then walk away. They regret walking away because they dream about one another for months. Angel and Mac aka Devin’s romance is one that is a roller coaster romance that you do NOT want to pass up and one that you don’t want to stop reading.

My Rating: 4.7 stars *****

This story will hook you from the beginning. There is mystery, a sexy hero, romance and a great heroine. Mac had a rough childhood and he escaped at a very young age. He stays away from his family but occasionally speaks with his mother. The things he went through as a child formed who he is today. He own a hotel/casino in Vegas and performs as a illusionist. He is a loner with the exception of his two best friends and business partners. . Although they both were f

Absolutely love this book. Once I started reading I couldn't stop. Mac & Angel, I couldn't get enough of and I loved every minute that they were together. Mac & Angel hooking up in Vegas was only suppose to be a one night stand but Angel & Mac can't seem to forget about each other. But Angel has to leave for a teaching job and Mac can't seem to shake his past. When Angel tries to reach out to Mac, will they reunite it will it just be a memory the time they spent together?

Omg, Ruin Me was so good that I sat down to read it and read till the very end. The story just captivated me from the very start. Mac had a dark family past. His closed his heart off to almost everyone. That was until he met Angel. Like her name she was truly an angel there to save him from his dark past. Together they try to make a go of things. But when faced with an unplanned pregnancy will he stick around or will his past haunt him into running away?

The weak chemistry between Mac and Angel made for an unconvincing Insta love. Mac’s story was heavy and depressing and seemed conscripted for pity, not a good look for a hero. Conversely, Angel was a cool heroine. She was strong, independent, confident.

It's possible that I read this book at a bad time - I just thought there was a lot of drama that didn't really lead up to anything, or just mAde the story drag.
However, I haven't given up on the series, so I hope I'll like the rest of it.

After reading the prequel, Unbreak Me, I knew I had to read this right after and I wasn't disappointed, in fact the title ruin me actually ruined me. The story of Mac, a magician and the teacher, Angel, who come together for a one night stand while she was in Vegas and then leaves w/o another word after. Both can't stop thinking about the other and when she reaches out to Mac and he finally responds, the news she has is exciting yet terrifying for a man who keeps everyone at arms lengths.

Great read! I loved this book and hated to put it down to work, sleep, eat, do life, or for it to end. It was such a great read and the story of Mac and Angel was a beautiful story.

He had a terrible childhood, and he doesn’t know how to let anyone love him now, nor does he know how to love anymore. He finds his way back to life when he meets Angel and s

>Book Review – Ruin Me
>I am an independent reviewer. This book is the 1st in the Vegas Knights series and ends in an HEA. So much of this story focuses on the backstory of all of the characters. Some of these backstories are fully explained, but one important story was left out. The book needed to delve into Mac’s education in the magic craft. This profession is so unusual that a chapter on it would have only added to the story. There weren’t even any scenes describing a typical magic show

Angel is visiting Vegas for one last hurrah with her best friend before moving to Mexico for two years to teach inner-city kids English. Mac has always been a loner, even to the point where most women don’t interest him. But when he sees Angel, that all changes. And what was supposed to be a one-night stand turns out to be so much more.

I loved Angel and Mac. Angel was perfect, but I still found her to be so down-to-earth and personable. Mac is the big, quiet, sexy hero that you want to just jump
Bella Love-Wins and Shiloh Walker's Ruin Me is a study in beautiful damaged characters. I was captivated from the moment I picked up. In fact, I devoured it in a single sitting, staying up way past my bedtime because I HAD to know what happened.

I feel in love with Mac from the start. He's positive that he's broken and unlovable. He's allowed his past to shape is present, and he can't even believe he has a future. But Mac isn't broken, just damaged. That's a critical distinction to make. Love-Win

Angel is in Vegas to gamble and see the shows. As they say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. She is harassed by a man at the bar. And is saved by a sexy dark stranger who says that his name is Mac. The chemistry is there for the very beginning. Angel normally does not do the one night stand thing. But she does with Mac. One night turns into them being consumed with each other.

To get the most enjoyment of this story, you should read Unbreak Me first….it is a free prequel which gives a bit of back story on Mac and Angel.

So, Mac meets Angel in a hotel bar in Las Vegas. They end up in bed together, but don’t exchange names. They go their separate ways, but things aren’t that easy. Neither is able to walk away from each other, but with her in Mexico and him in Las Vegas will they connect again? Turns out that Mac isn’t just any employee of the hotel, he is one of the owne

After one incredible night together, Mac and Angel go their separate ways. Mac wasn't able to get over her, but his messed up childhood left him unable to give or receive love or trust in a normal relationship so he reluctantly accepts that he'll never see her again. Until a couple months later when Angel has news for Mac.

To call this a whirlwind romance would be a vast understatement. They fall in love practically in a matter of minutes, but the truth of their lives - along with the insecuriti

Welcome to the Vegas Knights series from Author Bella Love Wins and Shiloh Walker.

Ruin Me is a great story from beginning to end. The characters are great on their own but oh so much better together. We have Mac who is the broody stay away from everyone kind of guy, his friends and partners Sly and LeVan owning and operating a hotel in Vegas and also do magic/illusion shows.

This story will suck you in and not let go until you get all the answers. I loved Mac and Angel. Angel was such a strong character that she didn't take Mac's BS.

Angel meets Mac at a luxury hotel in Las Vegas. She didn't realize that he was one of the headlining acts since he wore sunglasses most of the time. She was there for her last hurrah before she heads to Mexico City, Mexico for a teaching job. When she gets hit on, Mac intervenes. Then later as the same d

A One Night Stand in Vegas, sound familiar? But that is where the familiarity ends. The authors take that unoriginal beginning and turns it into a creative, magical, absolutely will not put it down, story. I really like Angel. She is from a wealthy family, but has been taught to help others, and she even carries it even further, because she also really cares about them. I like a strong, caring heroine, and that is what you have in Angel. Then there is sexy, brooding Mac, who is a world known mag ...more
