Synopsis:  Becca Scott spent years burying her traumatic past under alcohol and boys.  With the help of her best friend she struggles to accept herself and let go of the pain.  She thought she had figured out how to stop the cycle of self-destruction she was on, until she met Aiden.

Aiden Ryan lives with constant self-hatred.  He allows those close to him to manipulate his life for their own gain, because he feels he deserves it.  He was resigned to marry a woman he doesn't love, until he met Becca.

Becca and Aiden try and let go of their painful pasts to be together, but can their pasts let go of them?


Review: Self Destruct was a twisting, turning suspense filed novel from start to finish.  The author had me hanging on to the edge of my seat in more ways then one.

      Aiden and Becca's relationship progressed at warp speed.  (Yes, warp speed.  I am dork.  Leave me alone :-P  )  From the moment the author brought these two together they are off and running.  Now, don't get me wrong, I understand love doesn't always go according to a preordained plan.  Who am I to say what is too fast or too slow?  I get it.  I really do.  But, wow.  I wasn't the only one who recognized this either.  I was glad to see that the rest of the cast caught on as well.  This shows that the quick progression was all part of the author's plan.  Kudos to her.  Sometimes the author is unaware or doesn't recognize the expedited rate at which the storyline unfolds.  By her calling it out it soothed the knot in my stomach.

     I enjoyed Aiden's manly 'I want to protect you from the world' vibe.  It is always nice to have a strong leading man,  I also liked watching Becca's growth throughout the novel.  The twists and turns the author added took the basic love story and spiced it up, creating something new and exciting.

     I also want to throw my two cents in and say I would love to read Reed and Kate's story!  They both deserve a happy ever after.

Happy reading!!
