Everything done in darkness, will eventually be brought into the light.
I ran, but all it did was keep me one step ahead of my past. I tried to start over; new name, new
identity. But you can't change your soul.
A fresh start at college was just what I needed. For a while, it worked. I was the party girl, the one
that seemed confident, but it was a lie.
When guys kissed me--I felt only pain.
When they touched me--Nothing but fear.
Deep inside, every girl wants to be the beauty in the story, to find someone that will see you as their
But the truth? I was the beast. And as much as I wanted redemption, I wasn't fool enough to think I'd
ever get it.
Until he walked into my life.
I wasn't prepared to fall for someone. My scars were too deep, the wounds too raw. But he offered me
peace, he offered me security. I should have known it was just another lie--I should have known that
falling in love with my professor was a bad idea.
But I was powerless to stop myself from falling.
And he was powerless to catch me.
Because the darkness finally caught up to me, and as fate would have it, a cruel twist almost bled me
dry. But I'm stronger than I knew. I'm stronger than you think.
You think you know my story, but you don't....after all everyone has Shame in their lives-- and I'm no

Rachel Van Dyken scores again with another great book. Shame is the third book in the Ruin series, and an awesome ending to this series, but knowing Rachel she will probably add another book. I have been waiting to read Lisa's story, and Rachel Van Dyken gave it to me.
Rachel always knows how to keep a read on the edge of their seat, and Shame was no different. I was hooked from the prologue. Rachel has away of telling a story that will make the reader feel like they are right there in the book. It is so realistic that sometimes I have to pinch myself just to make sure I am not dreaming.
If you have read all of the other books in this series, then you know that Lisa has been running from her past. But, boy oh boy does everything come at her at once. I really felt bad for Lisa. I just wanted to give her a big hug because her life gets turned upside down.
She falls in love with her professor, and life tosses her one hell of a curve ball. All of the crazy twist and turns had me gasping for air. Some of it I figured out by myself, but some part I was just so speechless about.
Lisa was very brave and strong, and I was rooting for her the entire time. I really enjoyed this book. I can not wait to see what Rachel has next! Definitely check out this series, because you are in for an awesome ride!
