About HE WILL BE MY RUIN:

The USA TODAY bestselling author of the Ten Tiny Breaths and Burying Water series makes her suspense debut with this sexy, heartpounding story of a young woman determined to find justice after her best friend’s death, a story pulsing with the “intense, hot, emotional” (Colleen Hoover) writing that exhilarates her legions of fans.

A woman who almost had it all . . .

On the surface, Celine Gonzalez had everything a twenty-eight-year-old woman could want: a one-bedroom apartment on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, a job that (mostly) paid the bills, and an acceptance letter to the prestigious Hollingsworth Institute of Art, where she would finally live out her dream of becoming an antiques appraiser for a major auction house. All she had worked so hard to achieve was finally within her reach. So why would she kill herself?

A man who was supposed to be her salvation . . .

Maggie Sparkes arrives in New York City to pack up what’s left of her best friend’s belongings after a suicide that has left everyone stunned. The police have deemed the evidence conclusive: Celine got into bed, downed a lethal cocktail of pills and vodka, and never woke up. But when Maggie discovers a scandalous photograph in a lock box hidden in Celine’s apartment, she begins asking questions. Questions about the man Celine fell in love with. The man she never told anyone about, not even Maggie. The man Celine believed would change her life.

Until he became her ruin.

On the hunt for evidence that will force the police to reopen the case, Maggie uncovers more than she bargained for about Celine’s private life—and inadvertently puts herself on the radar of a killer. A killer who will stop at nothing to keep his crimes undiscovered.

HE WILL BE MY RUIN Excerpt:

Look, I’m just…” I stare at my reflection in the mirror, my eyes lined with bags, my skin sallow, my hair matted. I look like someone who sat in bed for twenty-four hours, eating cold pizza from the box I had delivered last night and polishing off a bottle of vodka, all while reading the deepest and darkest thoughts from the last fifteen years of Celine Gonzalez’s life. Discovering things that I could have happily gone the rest of my life without knowing.

Which is exactly what I’ve done.

I can barely keep my eyes open and yet I know that sleep will not grant me a reprieve. “I’m dealing with a few private matters.”

“Well, I can’t guarantee that I’ll be able to fit you in when you decide that you’re ready.”

“You will, because your boss wants my money.” I hang up before I hear her snippy answer and stare at the journal in my hands.

I was torn between starting from the latest diary first and easing myself in with the oldest one, afraid that I wasn’t ready for what might lie within those last pages. That I wasn’t ready to witness just how Celine had lost herself.

And then I picked up a pink book with butterflies on it—the earliest dated journal—and read a thirteen-year-old Celine recount her major crush on my boyfriend at the time: a tall, gangly guy named Jordan who kissed her behind our house one day while I was changing into my bathing suit upstairs. She felt so guilty, she couldn’t sleep for a week. Through tears, I laughed—because I hadn’t even given that guy a moment’s thought in years—and I knew then that starting at the beginning of Celine’s story was the only way to do this.

And so I did, living the past fifteen years through Celine’s eyes, since the days she and Rosa still lived with me. It wasn’t hard to follow along. She dated every single entry. Some days she didn’t have a lot to say. Other days she’d fill an entire page, even writing along the margin. She seemed to follow a simple rule as the years progressed: one page per day, no more.

So many days.

So many confessions.

So many things that made my heart swell.

And so many that made my heart bleed with pain.

HE WILL BE MY RUIN Review:

Wow! I am so honored that I got to read K.A. Tucker’s first suspense novel, He Will Be My Ruin. This is a genre that I used to read a lot and have gotten away from as I have immersed myself in romance! And now I have slowly been picking some up – more romantic suspense – but this was just a pure suspenseful, twisty turny masterpiece!

Maggie Sparkes comes to NYC following the death of her very best friend in the entire world. Maggie and Celine have been more sisters, family, than friends since they were children growing up together. Maggie has come to go through Celine’s stuff after the police have ruled her death a suicide, but it just doesn’t feel right to Maggie. As she begins to uncover items in her friend’s apartment her resolve becomes clear – get the police to reopen this investigation. There is just no way that Celine committed suicide.

So once again I am not going to tell you a whole lot about this book. You truly need to go into this book blind and just read, read and read some more (and NO don’t peek at the back to figure it all out!) You can read the blurb and know that much 😉 But for me so much of the experience of this book was being just as in the dark as Maggie was and trying to figure it all out alongside her. And each time you think you are close BOOM! another twist comes up. LOVED IT! It had my mind spinning and working overtime until the very end!

This was just so well written. It was easy to get lost in the story being told. It was told primarily from Maggies POV with some peeks into Celine’s POV which was just absolutely tantalizing! The characters were portrayed phenomenally – all the little quirks to their personalities really helped to bring them to life. Maggie was a very strong heroine, who though she had her moments of doubt and insecurity, was steadfast and loyal and someone you would want to have in your corner. And the side characters… oh – just wait until you read about them!

I highly recommend this book. I never wanted to put it down because I was afraid of what may happen when I did – I know it is just happening in a book – but tell that to my overactive imagination! Pick it up and lose yourself in the mystery, twists, suspense and thrills.

I received a complimentary copy of He Will Be My Ruin in exchange for my honest review.
