Happy Release Day to Shiloh Walker ~ Ruined: A Barnes Brothers book ~ Review
A Barnes Brothers novel
by Shiloh Walker
One of the Barnes brothers, Sebastien has always felt blessed. Not only does he have an amazing family, but he’s become a Hollywood golden boy who has everything he’s ever wanted—with one exception. He’s had a thing for Marin since he was a kid, but when he finally summons the courage to ask her out, she turns him down. Marin is ready to settle down, she wants commitment and stability, and Sebastien is still too much of a playboy, caught up in the wild life of the spotlight.
Still reeling from the rejection, Sebastien’s luck runs out later that night when he saves a girl from an assault. The shining knight role fits him just fine, but his armor—and his perfect life—become tarnished when the near-deadly attack lands him in the hospital. Physically scarred, he gives up acting and retreats from everybody.
If anyone can pull Sebastien back from the abyss, it’s Marin. But first she has to convince him that beauty is not only skin deep…
The Barnes Brothers are back! This time it is youngest brother Sebastien's story in Ruined.
Sebastien is the youngest Barnes brother and has the world at his feet, he is good looking, famous, and has everything he could ever want in life....except for the girl. Marin has been friend's with Sebastien and his entire family for years, and although she has crushed on Sebastien, she would never ruin what they have just for a night in his bed. After a vicious attack that leaves Sebastien scarred both physically and emotionally, Marin is by his side trying her best to help him. With all the time they spend together, it's no wonder the attraction they both feel eventually comes out.
Ruined was my absolute favorite of the Barnes brothers books. We got to see Sebastien through-out the previous books and I was so excited when he finally got a story of his own. This story was filled with such emotional highs & lows, lots of sexy time, just a fabulous story that I was unable to put down.
