It’s been too long since I posted a book review. I’ve been reading, I just haven’t been writing about.
From Fame to Ruin follows the lives of Carol, the heiress of a crumbling business empire and Ricardo, a rock star. The story weaves back and forth between present day and when they met almost four years previously. This kept me reading because the answers I wanted wouldn’t be in the next chapter, but in the chapter after this. It was an unbreakable cycle that had me bingeing the rest of the book once I reached the 70% mark.
This book is more than a romance, if that has you turning your nose up. There is a ton of drama: lawsuits, kidnapping, an arranged marriage, revenge and… murder.
I thoroughly enjoyed this one and would recommend this to anyone who enjoys drama and suspense packed books with a side of romance.
Dimplesandgrins.com is on a joy seeking mission. It is a place of celebration and inspiration. At the same time, I am not afraid to explore the darker, sadder parts of life because life consists of both joyful and sorrowful moments (plus, a lot of other emotions).
