Sweet Ruin (University of Branton #3) - #review

SWEET RUIN by Nazarea Andrews

March 13, 2014
University of Branton, #3

It’s good to be on top… Asher Knox has it all. Girls, wealth, a career most would kill for. He’s just landed the biggest job of his career. And he’s miserable.

She’s fighting her way from the bottom… Megan Beauchamp has no illusions about why she was chosen to be Asher’s PA. She’s pretty, and down to earth, and everything the Hollywood star always falls for. Too bad Megan is just paying her dues and has no interest in anything but advancing at her PR firm.

He’ll throw it all away…Luca James knows what he wants. And he’s waited a long time for the window to open—when it does, he’ll walk away from the career he’s built for a chance at something real.

When Megan’s boss threatens to fire her, Luca and Asher convince her to leave town with them. Between bad hotels and pit stop confessionals, the three are drawn closer together. And the lines blur even more in Branton, where Megan is forced to look at everything she left behind. But when the boys want more, Megan will be forced to choose between the men she loves and the life she thought she wanted. And in a town like Branton, the secrets she keeps won’t be hidden for long.

My Review...

I quite like this series, so when I found out there was a third book in the series plus a ménage I couldn't wait to read it.

However, once I started to read this one I quickly found that I didn't love this one as much as the first two. I did like the characters but I felt the progression of the triad and the feelings too quick. 

First there is girl A (Megan) who works for straight Boy B (Asher) but she has rules against business and pleasure. Girl A is also friends with Boy C (Luca) who happens to like threesomes which is not her thing then all of a sudden boy B meets Boy C then 'BAM' there are curiosities and feelings and then have more of a bond then they do with the original reason why they met which is  Girl A (Megan).  After this they then have to convince Girl A to join them. 

It did have the angst of Branton with Nik's bitchiness.

But I didn't truly feel Megan's hang ups with her sister.  All of a sudden Megan had a big issue out of no where and I felt like this story line of why she is so reluctant to change and being on her own could have been so much more.

Having said all that I did like the potential of this story and it had many steamy NA moments. I liked this story I just wished for a bit more.

Even though I didn't love this book as much as the others. I still adore this series and it was a great jump into the NA menage foray.  Bold move Nazarea.  I love Authors who take risks. :)
