She wanted to start again. To be someone---anyone---different . . .
Freedom. When Carleigh Stanger thought of college, that was the word that came to mind. Freedom from her unhappy home life. Freedom from high school mistakes. Freedom from the memory of that terrible morning. Only instead of bringing a sweet escape, Carleigh's first campus party traps her in the scornful gaze of the last person she wants to see, Tucker Green.
It wasn't long ago that being close to Carleigh was everything Tucker wanted. But that was before he realized she was just another scheming girl who'd do whatever it took to get her way. Even lie to the guy she claimed to love. Unfortunately while Tucker's brain remembers the pain Carleigh caused, his body only remembers the pleasure . . .
No one does NA/YA drama like Danielle Pearl! If you haven’t read Normal and Okay yet, you are totally missing out! So, needless to say, I grabbed In Ruins as soon as I heard she was writing another book!
This is a spin off of the previous books, but you really don’t have to read them to understand In Ruins. Here, you get the second chance story of Carleigh and Tucker. They were high school sweethearts until secrets and lies tore them apart. But, not too far apart because they went to the same college. There is so much attractions between them still so they fall back into each other fairly quickly. However, there are still LOTS of secrets between them.
So, I know I sound super vague in this review, but honestly, I have to be. The plot will totally throw you with some of the twists and turns. You will love every angsty moment of it! Just trust me. If you love a good angsty read, In Ruins needs to be on your TBR!
