It's good to be on top...Asher Knox has it all. Girls, wealth, a career most would kill for. He's just landed the biggest job of his career. And he's miserable. She's fighting her way from the bottom...Megan Beauchamp has no illusions about why she was chosen to be Asher's PA. She's pretty, and down to earth, and everything the Hollywood star always falls for. Too bad Megan is just paying her dues and has no interest in anything about advancing at her PR firm. He'll throw it all away...Luca James knows what he wants. And he's waited a long time for the window to open--when it does, he'll walk away from the career he's built for a chance at something real.

When Megan's boss threatens to fire her, Luca and Asher convince her to leave town with them. Between bad hotels and pit stop confessionals, the three are drawn closer together. And the lines blur even more in Branton, where Megan is forced to look at everything she left behind. But when the boys want more, Megan will be forced to choose between the men she loves and the life she thought she wanted. And in a town like Branton, the secrets she keeps won't be hidden for long.

**My Thoughts**

Note: This review contains no spoilers

Whoa! Sweet Ruin is definitely NOT your standard contemporary romance novel. However, Nazarea's characters are her usual "broken" individuals that have pasts and heartache that they hide behind their drive for success. In Sweet Ruin, our main characters are all in the same field in their career choices. Asher is a Hollywood celebrity, Megan is Asher's PA and Luca is a hot model...talk about entertainment. The story was well written and the characters were also well developed. These three characters had definite individual identities and personalities that revealed a lot of growth throughout the book. I can definitely appreciate the romantic, intimate and sensual take on a threesome. I was impressed that Nazarea made the topic of a taboo subject into a beautiful love story. It was in no way written in a raunchy or dirty feel to it.

Again, Nazarea has written strong individual characters with pasts that they need to overcome and face. I appreciated the story of Megan going home to Branton where she grew up, and where she has to face her past.  As the story progresses, Megan, Asher and Luca has nothing but time to really open up to each other and face their fears. However, I feel that I want more...I want to see where they go after the end of this book. There could be so much more... what would happen with their threesome relationship, especially with their lives always in the limelight...especially in Hollywood. It seems that Sweet Ruin is just the beginning for these three characters, and I would love to read more on it.

Sweet Ruin is not your traditional romance. Definitely not lacking in the intimacy and sensuality department. This is a read that will get you hot and bothered, but, yet, you will fall in love with these characters.
