Book Review: Ruin Porn by S.A. McAuley and SJD Peterson


Blurb:

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.


Jewel's rating:




I admit, I struggled a bit with the rating of this book. I liked it, but it didn't wow me, and it felt a bit too long. I liked Evin and Finn (and they were especially hot when Ritchie joined in), but as much as I felt their chemistry, I didn't really feel the romance at all, and I sorely missed that.

But I did like the writing and I liked the music and I liked how the band members all really felt like a family. And they fought like family, too.


Most of the book takes place on tour, so we get snapshots of gigs and things that happen before or after the show. And that was great, I loved seeing into their world. However, I would have liked more romance and interaction between Evin and Finn so that I could really feel their connection with one another.

Still, if these authors are planning a book for Ritchie, I'll likely read it, and hope that it resonates with me more.
