Ruin Porn by S.A. McAuley & SJD Peterson : Pre-Release Day Review

ruin porn

synopsis

There is underlying beauty in destruction….

Miah Thade, Finn Reese, and Ritchie Meyer are Resonator, an indie rock band with an edge—best friends turned rock stars, known as the Detroit 3. When Evin Rene appears in their life, none of them can deny he belongs with Rez.

They may have named their first album Ruin Porn because people get off on seeing how Detroit went from deeply loved to thoroughly forsaken, but they’re determined to prove that blight isn’t the entire story and blight isn’t always ugly.

Ritchie, Miah, Finn, and Evin take Resonator to a level no one anticipates. But no prosperity comes without sacrifice, and no secret stays hidden without a trail of lies. As Rez’s fame grows, so does the intensity between two of its members… as well as their potential for destruction.

Evin and Finn are about to discover the underlying beauty in their ruin porn.

michelle review

I love when I read a new author(s) and have no idea what style of writing they use or how their stories develop.   I read the blurb for Ruin Porn and figured since it was rockstars it would be an insta-love (because who can resist a sexy rockstar) – What I was not expecting was to feel a lot of different emotions and to fall completely in love with the MCs.    Here we have 4 men all with different personalities that mesh well (and sometimes not) with each other.

  • Miah, the lead singer, is glue to the group (or so he thinks). He is hyper, cocky and the biggest slut ever (different day – different woman).   His character makes you laugh one minute and question his sanity the next.
  • Ritchie, the drummer, is the mama bear trying to tame the cubs.   He is the shoulder everyone leans on (amongst other things ****giggle***) and always trying to keep the peace.
  • Finn, the guitarist, is the sexy, candy sucking rock GOD!
  • Evin, the bassist, is the newbie to the group.  He is shy/reserved and completely in lust with the straight boys of Resonator (at least he thinks they are)

Miah, Ritchie & Finn have been BFFs since childhood growing up on the wrong side of Detroit.   Evin and his band are suppose to go on tour as the opening act for Resonator, but misfortune takes away that opportunity…….Without spoiling too much……Evin gets a second chance and goes on tour with them.  Cue in the sexual tension between a few band mates, a voyeur scene (HOT), and an offer no one wants to refuse and you have yourself one of the hottest books around.

McAuley & Peterson (my first read by both authors) give great detail to everything from what each character is feeling, what is going on while playing on stage, how their body reacts with the contact from another….I mean holy heaven I was either panting and fanning myself from the sexiness of the story or holding my breath hoping everything doesn’t fall apart.

The flow of the book was exactly what I was not expecting….I was expecting a fast pace, hard rock story that gave more sex than story, but I was completely wrong.   Yes – there is HOT, steamy, you–will-need-a-cold-shower sex, but OMG there was a fantastic story as well.    It had everything you want in a book…..Character development, laughter, heartbreak, tears of frustration and of love.   You will fall in love with Rez.

What do you do when the lies you tell could destroy everything you’ve always wanted?    The answer to that is……READ. THIS. BOOK. to find out.  I wish I could give more than 5 stars!!!!   …..AND I am really hoping that there will be a book 2 so we can see what happens with Miah & Ritchie (because those 2 stubborn A$$ES need to get their crap together)
