Amy's ARC review of Ruin by Clarissa Wild

A new Standalone Romance novel by New York Times & USA Today Bestselling author Clarissa Wild. 

Maybell Fairweather was the girl of my dreams. 

Always smiling brightly, she kept going, despite the names her classmates called her behind her back. 
She was full of curiosity and independence, the extent of which I could only be jealous of. Even though she had all odds stacked against her, she knew what she wanted from life and pursued it, no matter the cost. 

She was completely my opposite in every way. 
Perfect, even though she couldn’t see it. 
Perfect … until me. 

Because this is the story of how I ruined her. 

Based on a true story. Standalone Romance. No cliffhanger.

**see the note on rating** 

Clarissa Wild has put herself on the shelf. Based on a true story – actual events therefore there will be no stars; just a review that explains the luminosity of opening oneself up for all the word to see. Two people – one story –

Bringing light into your life is never easy. Having the courage to allow someone to put your story out there is brave and the reader should read from the heart. This story was one that I was honored to read. 

Maybell Fairweather is an peculiar soul. A soul that God chose to make different giving her gifts in ways she would later appreciate. Not handling social situations, Maybell occasionally puts herself out there but not often. In one swoop her life is forever changed and in order to survive she has to rely on others --- something that affects her personally – mind, body and spirit. 
Alex adores the girl he knows as May. He suffers himself in different ways than May. Alex feels he is the cause of others pain. A dropout – he endures in silence. He sees May although he knows she feels invisible. He is no good for her though. She is not the one for him. 

The night that changes May also changes Alex. A bond Is formed and in love and light the issues that debilitate both of them are taken on with the delicacy deserved. This is a moving book that will touch you. There is some fiction or events stretched potentially further than truth in order to tell a story but the underlying lines tell us of two people who overcame a wealth of trauma. 

This is a wonderful read. If you need something to put your sorrows into perspective this is your book. I highly recommend Ruin. The cover is the perfect pick for this read. Absolutely beautiful and telling. Flip back to it when you are done and really SEE it. Amazing. Thank you Clarissa for the ARC. I'm honored. 

Review to post to Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets.
