    One thought on “Road to Ruin”

    1. I was loving this so much until it just ended. Freaking cliffhanger!! I think Tommy just moved up to my number one. He's sexy, badass and has a soft spot for Nikita. I like him a lot. I will review later when I read the second half!

    2. ROAD TO RUIN:is the first book in the New Orleans Nights series co written by Callie Hart and Jonny Jones. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ In the ‘Prologue’ were introduced to Alexander Bastien (the most evil family that walked the earth in Louisiana) and Genevieve Kenrick who happens to be none other than Tommy's sister a wedding set in place which sets the pace for a dark, gritty, sit on the edge of your seat read. This is a marriage of revenge, a sure way of making Tommy pay for sins of [...]

Road To RuinDescriptionMalicious Destruction of Property.Two counts of breaking and entering.Two counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance.Four counts of assault.Three counts of illegal gambling.Three years served in Orleans Parish Prison.Tommy ‘Havoc’ Kendrick’s rap sheet reads like a recipe for disaster: one part mayhem to three parts chaos. There’s no arguing the matter; he’s a bad guy, or at least he used to be. For the past five years, Tommy’s been on the straight [...]

    4. Definitely more action that romance in this story, but i loved it because it was perfectly developed. I'm taking off one star only because - major spoiler here - (view spoiler)[I couldn't buy that two people working with the h would really think that they would get away with drugging and raping her without consequences, since she was aware of who they were and what they were going to do. I do not know, it doesn't really make sense to me.(hide spoiler)]However, i'm eagerly waiting for the next bo [...]

    5. Wow, I loved every angsty bit of this book!I was gripped from the first chapter and it just kept on going. The prologue is told in Alex Bastien's pov giving you a deeper understanding of the plot to come. Alex is a guy in power, a man other men fear, he seems ruthless and heartless, runs an underground fighting racket that stems generations in the Bastien family.Genevieve doesent have her own pov but plays a part in the scheme of the plot, taken against her will as revenge and forced her into ma [...]

    6. 4.5 starsIS!!!!!!!Zeth will always be my baby but Tommy comes really close! This series is the beginning of something amazing I know it. And I LOVE the bad guy too! So much potential and the side characters are all great. Another hit by Mrs Hart!Zeth loversyou need to get your hands on this one!

    7. The prologue was quite captivating. It certainly pulled me in and set the suspenseful tone of the book. Plenty of moving parts to this story that kept me intrigued. I can't wait for part two. Full review to follow

    8. Ένας πολλά υποσχόμενος πρόλογος θα έλεγα. Το 1ο βιβλίο της νέας σειράς της Callie Hart στην ουσία μας συστήνει τους ήρωες και την ιστορία. Είναι μια ενδιαφέρουσα εισαγωγή με φόντο τον υπόκοσμο της Νέας Ορλεάνης και ελπίζω η συνέχεια να αποδειχτεί εξίσου συναρπαστική!

    9. This wasn't my favorite book. But the ending left me wanting more which is the reason for the 3 stars. Alex Bastien is a bully. plain amd simple. He pushes people around to get what he wants. Obviously there was a situation between Tommy and Alex years prior and Tommy left town which after a while Alex wanted Tommy back so he took his sister. Overall there is a lot of violence which I don't mind at all in reading but this book didn't keep my attention as well.

    10. Το πρώτο μέρος της ιστορίας μοιάζει σαν πρόλογος πριν απο την μεγάλη τρικυμία.Τουλάχιστον έτσι μας έχει συνηθίσει η κυρία Hart κι ελπίζω κι εδώ να μην αποτελέσει εξαίρεση.Αναμένω την συνέχεια!!

    11. This book is dark as f*ck but it's also gritty, raw, sexy, and even has moments of humor. There are layers upon layers of characters to explore. I really enjoyed seeing this collaboration between Callie Hart and Jonny James. That cliffhanger killed me though - hurry up with the second one guys!

    12. I am a die-hard Callie Hart fan and this new book written with Jonny James is the best so far. I couldn't put it down. This story is dark and has so many twists it kept me turning the pages. Tommy and Nikita are explosive together. Alexander Bastien is a dark, evil villain , who governs his empire with his two brothers. I am intrigued with the character of West Bastien, the dark brother with a sense of humor. These characters are well developed and the story is based in my favorite city, New Orl [...]

    13. I hate cliffhanger books. One star off automatically. Still I love the characters and the scene. I don't really feel New Orleans much but it's still got enough creepy cemetery reference to get some of the vibe.Pretty violent.

    14. With Road to Ruin, Callie hart and Jonny James gives us a new promising series. This book was everything I anticipated.For their first collaboration, those authors plunge us into the New Orleans underground. The atmosphere is dark, gritty, mysterious, violent, and I loved every bit of it. The storyline and the complex characters intrigued me from the beginning, well, even before that, actually, I've been intrigued by this project since I read the chapter in My Sweet Villaintine last winter. Niki [...]

    16. Look in the dictionary and you will find the definition of a Review – “a critique or evaluation” -pfft! all I can say is they obviously haven’t read Road to Ruin because if they had they would know that the ability to form reasonable thought, let alone to put those thoughts in any form of sensible order is impossible…this book OMGG!!!!I have read and loved books by Callie Hart in the past, the mistress of madness and obviously, her literary partnership with Jonny James has taken that c [...]

    17. Road to Ruin was fantastic. It's dark, angsty and so well written. I flipped the page and it was the end of part one and I was mad. Well, I still kinda am, I didn't want it to end. Ready for the next installment Callie and Jonny if you two could oblige please.Tommy is all things bad boy with a soft spot for Nikita. Nikita is a female bada** with a great sense of self. Tommy was in deep in the New Orleans underground and got himself out and away. But his sister finds herself in a situation and he [...]

    18. Bangor Belle Book BestiesOMG what have i just read?? When you read this book, and read it you must, this will make perfect sense. "Well Shit, Not even I was expecting that"Right from the start this book will tie you up in knots, I kid you not!!! Chills, hot sexy cruel Alpha's and a story line that just blew me away !!!! Alex Bastien is the underworld Lord, deadly, dark and is intent on reeking vengence on Tommy Kendrick, blaming him on the death of his sister. He decided to use Tommy's sister to [...]

    19. Holy WoW! I just can't put into logical words how freaking great this book is! I swear I read this on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was going to happen next! Its thrilling, shocking, exciting, and full fledged awesome!I couldn't put it down! Page, by page brought this book more alive, and totally had me hanging on each word! I'm not the spoiling type so all I'll say is you definitely want to read this! I voluntarily received this book as an arc and it is worth 5 🌟's and then some!

    20. God damn cliffhangers! This book has been sitting on my TBR downloaded list for moooonths and months. And really it’s a little slow out of the gate trying to figure out who is whom and how they all fit together. And right about the time I’m totally sucked in, the book ends in a cliffhanger. I shouldn’t be surprised because that’s a Callie Hart trope but damn man! And to top it off, no known follow up or release date.

    21. The words that comes to my mind is bad ass. It's funny I don't usually like the bad guy, he's always a self righteous asshole but Alexander there's something about him that I like. Her brother West is hilarious. Tommy and Nikita are awesome characters, he's your typical alpha and she's a kick ass female. The balls on that girl. I liked it it was dirty, gritty and badassery looking forward to more

    22. Here's the thing, so every time I start a book by Callie I start it blindly. I've no idea what I'm getting myself into. Is it going to be about a murderer with a black bag? a MC president? Or maybe a sexy veteran with a heavy past? And "road to ruin" was no different. I went reading that baby with a blind fold, cuffed hands and legs wide open because we all know that it doesn't matter the "respectable" profession of the dude, he's always a fucking sexy alpha beast. So, obviously I have a point f [...]

    23. Whenever I start a Callie Hart book I already know to buckle up because she always BRINGS it without Fail. ALWAYS. But now add to the fact that this book is co-written by the FANTASTIC first time author Jonny James, we know that no doubt this unbeatable combination will take us on sexy and edgy ride that we will not want to get off of!! AND Good Lord did they deliver with Road to Ruin!!! I am absolutely hooked. I might have broke my kindle after frantically tapping next page because I just did n [...]

    24. HIGH RATING, SLIGHTLY CRITICAL REVIEWCallie Hart’s writing style has always been superb; her grammar, vocabulary usage and tone of voice is pretty spot on, male or female, but that’s not to say I’ve loved every single one of her books. I never enjoyed the Dead Man’s Ink series as much as the Blood & Roses one. That being said, Road to Ruin is a very strong start to a two-part serial. Road to Ruin has many characters for such a low page count, but none of the characters seem superfluo [...]

    25. 4 F'ING CRIMINAL STARSI stumbled upon this book and gobbled it up in an hour or two. Now I am impatient and sad that it's over—least until the next book. So yes, there is a cliffhanger. A big, giant, cliffhanger. I admit, the first opening lines were a bit alarming and out of left field, but I pressed on. I really enjoyed the writing style. Not only did the words flow well, there was a nice balance of darkness, humor, sensual-passionate-sexy-time and good old sarcasm. One minute I was laughing [...]

    26. "You and I both know that there's no such thing as 'separate ways' now. Our paths have converged. Life doesn't shove people together like this and then allow them to part so easily."Road to Ruin is the attention grabbing explosive opener to a new series from the amazing author Callie Hart who has teamed up with Jonny James to provide a panty melting kick ass read that I could not put down. Sucked into the underworld of New Orleans, Alexander Bastien is the blood splattered King of his castle; un [...]

    27. It’s been a few days since I finished the book and I still am not completely sure how I feel about the book. I know that I want to read the next book in the series but I am not sure that I am going to want to buy it the day that it comes out. The first quarter of the book was hard to get through because we get introduced to the world that Tommy and Nikita are a part of. Nikita works for the prison and is trying to help out one of her patients but by doing so, she finds herself knee deep in a w [...]
