Ruin Me (Nova #5) by Jessica Sorensen

A part time student, CNA, and caretaker for her slightly deranged mother, Clara McKiney doesn’t have time for a relationship. That’s why her friends with benefits arrangement with sexy and ridiculously charming Jax Hensley works perfectly.

But Jax has other ideas.

The moment Jax met Clara he was instantly drawn to her wittiness, confidence, and gorgeous smile. Even though he agreed to the friends with benefits arrangement, he secretly hopes for more than their weekend hook ups.

When Jax's estranged mother mysteriously disappears, he sees an opportunity to spend more time with Clara. After convincing her to return home with him, a new agreement is made. One road trip and week together to find out why his mom vanished into thin air.

Things are about to get complicated.


Jax's story is not quite as angsty or dramatic as some of her other novels, but Jax and Clara still have their fair share of obstacles to overcome. It was clear that these two were on a crash course for each other from page one and I loved watching Clara try to resist the charm that is Jax. This was a refreshing change from Jessica's usual emotionally charged stories that leave you emotionally drained after reading them (in the best way possible!). While dealing with some heavy issues, Jax's propensity for inappropriate humor add a slightly lighter feel, which I appreciated. This book can be read as a stand alone, but I would recommend at least reading Wreck Me (although all the Nova books are fantastic, and starting at the beginning is always best!) before picking this one up, as there is some crossover with characters and story lines. Overall, another fine read by Jessica!
