Review – HE WILL BE MY RUIN by KA Tucker

So. Freaking. Good. You need to read this book, as soon as possible.


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.


This man was once my salvation. Now he will be my ruin.

WHY???? Why did I leave it so long to read this book? I am KICKING myself!! I was excited for this book, for still, for some reason, I was hesitant to actually pick it up. And I have no idea why because as soon as I did finally turn that first page, I could not stop!!

Talk about an edge of your seat read! There’s a hashtag going around with this book — #ISuspectEveryone — and oh how fitting! Because I honestly did suspect everyone!! Even the poor old dear next door. I had next to no idea where this book was going or what would happen next, and I was like an addict desperate and needy for more!

I know I’ve completely abused the use of the exclamation, but trust me, they are all worthy! This book was just that good!! And yes, there was a romance, and though I didn’t know who the true suspect was, I knew who I didn’t want it to be. And man, it was so hard to know who to trust that it made my crush awfully difficult, but by no means less thrilling; in fact, it probably made it even no so!

So in case you haven’t gathered yet, He Will Be My Ruin is a book I wholeheartedly recommend to each and every one of you! I’ve certainly learnt my lesson with this book; I won’t be leaving it so long to read a book by KA Tucker again.
