BLOG TOUR: Ruined by Jus Accardo

Hell is looking for a way to break loose…

Jax lost the genetic lottery. Descended from Cain, the world's first murderer, he's plagued by a curse that demands violence in exchange for his happiness. He left everything behind, including the girl he loved, but thriving on the pain of others is lonely… And it's killing him.
After a series of heartbreaking losses, Samantha put rubber to pavement and headed for college as fast as her clunker could carry her. But she can't outrun her problems. When an attack at school drives her back home, she's thrown into the path of a past—and a guy—she's been trying to forget.Sam strains Jax's control over his darkness, but running isn't an option this time. Someone—or, something—followed her home from school: a ruthless monster with a twisted plan centuries in the making. Forced together to survive, and fighting an attraction that could destroy them both, Jax and Sam must stop a killer bent on revenge.

JUS ACCARDO spent her childhood reading and learning to cook. Determined to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps as a chef, she applied and was accepted to the Culinary Institute of America. At the last minute, she realized her path lay with fiction, not food, and passed on the spot to pursue writing. Jus is the bestselling author the popular Denazen series from Entangled publishing and is currently working on the first book in a new adult series due out summer 2013. A native New Yorker, she lives in the middle of nowhere with her husband, three dogs, and sometimes guard bear, Oswald.

I have seen Jus Accardo's books around and even have a few friends that have told me I really need to read her books, so as soon as I saw this tour, I jumped on it...
I could really be kicking myself right now because I have waited so long to read any of her books.
Just plain AWESOMENESS doesn't cover how fabulous this book was.
With the age old struggle of good vs evil, RUINED brings us in to a story that is old as time and yet refreshingly new.  
Jus Accardo put a unique twist on the ever long battle with demons.  I was inherently intrigued from start to finish all the while holding on to my seat at the events that were unfolding before me.
Told from dualing POVs, we get to view the lives of Jax, our resident BAD BOY, and the love of his life Samantha.  Even though this love story brings you the "I am bad boy and she will never accept me" tale, you are still caught up in the clash between the wills of these two characters.  
I loved watching the back and forth between Jax and Sammy, the moments of weakness and passion, the revelations and understanding, and the ultimate holding of the breath at where this all goes...
RUINED was filled with stimulating action, suspense, snarky humor, and a fun fiery romance that keeps you glued to each page...
Get ready for shocking discoveries along with gut-wrenching decisions that leads me dying for book 2...
A definite must read...
