No matter his name, one fact remains the same. He’s the man who enslaved me, ensnared me, claimed me and ruined me… For all other men that is.
All belong to him.
I belong to no one but him.
He owns me.
And I own him.
Ruined is the third book in the Decadence After Dark series and is a novella epilogue to Kayne and Ellie’s story. Ruined cannot be read as a standalone.
Ellie and Kayne have been through a lot – together and apart – since they first met. From the beginning of this series, when these two characters were first introduced in Owned, readers were brought into this captivatingly, dark world of BDSM, prostitution, and drug dealing. Only that world wasn’t as black and white as it seemed. The second book, Claimed, picked up a year after the ending events of Owned and Ellie was thrust back into Kayne’s world by her own choosing. Ruined is the follow-up epilogue to the previous books.
While short, the author takes readers on an emotional journey that will tug you in so many different ways and have you experiencing a vast array of emotions just as the previous two books have done so. The way that Never wraps up Ellie and Kayne’s story is done in an utterly spectacular manner that leaves readers with a sense of peace when thinking of this couple,( I still don’t like her crawling away though) especially since those of us have read this series from the beginning know that these two characters have not had it easy.
This is such an utterly gripping and captivating series, Decadence After Dark is dark and not for the faint of heart, but it also is a bright spot. Ellie and Kayne’s “love” story is a unique one for sure, but it’s theirs. From the very beginning I have fallen in love with this couple and had high hopes for them. M Never did not disappoint!
