I am not sure what to think of this cover. I like the dark house in the background, but then the shirtless man in the front clashes a bit with the background and it’s a bit depressing with all that black and white, but on the other hand I can’t think of another cover in black in white, so it also is original. And Ruin is the only thing that is in colour, but I think the colour scheme is a bit too quiet in the text. So I guess this cover has it’s good and bad points.
Ruin (A Summer in Winter #1)
by C.J. Scott
Publication Date: August 2013
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Kate Bell isn’t perfect. Not even close. The things she got up to in college would cause her parents to fall off their pedestals in shock. Home for the summer vacation, Kate settles in for a long, boring break in the tiny backwater of Winter with folks who still treat her like she’s twelve.
Then Ben Parker arrives and suddenly Winter gets interesting. He’s hot, mysterious and good with his hands. Kate falls for him instantly, but her cop father warns her to stay away. But how can she stay away from someone as compelling as Ben? Someone who thinks she’s perfect just the way she is?
When Ben’s secrets catch up to him, not only is Kate’s heart in danger of being broken, but Ben’s entire future could be ruined.
RUIN is a new adult contemporary romance intended for mature readers. It contains strong language and sexual situations.
The blurb doesn’t give much away, but for some reason it intrigues me. Especially that sentence that Ben’s entire future could be ruined. I am wondering which secrets he has and how they could ruin his future. Adding this one to my to-read list.
