The Perfect Ruin by Shanora Williams

Is she getting even… or getting played? The Perfect Ruin by Shanora Williams.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shanora Williams, a riveting novel of domestic suspense about the close relationship between two women: a severely troubled twenty-something and the mega-successful, billionaire CEO she's determined to destroy.

A brutal tragedy ended Ivy Hill’s happy family and childhood. Now in her twenties and severely troubled, she barely has a life—or much to live for. Until the day she discovers the name of the woman who destroyed her world: Lola Maxwell—the mega-wealthy socialite with a heart, Miami’s beloved “first lady” of charity. Accomplished, gorgeous, and oh-so-caring, Lola has the best of everything—and doesn’t deserve any of it. So it’s only right that Ivy take it all away...

Little by little, Ivy infiltrates Lola’s elite circle, becomes her new best friend—and plays Lola’s envious acquaintances and hangers-on against her. But seducing Lola’s handsome, devoted surgeon husband turns into a passionate dream Ivy suddenly can’t control. And soon, an insidious someone will twist Ivy’s revenge into a nightmare of deception, secrets, and betrayal that Ivy may not wake up from...

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

The Perfect Ruin is a suspenseful thriller focused on revenge. These characters are written to be disliked. You don't want to sympathize with them and as soon as you do, they do something to again make you dislike them. I couldn't find any redeeming qualities in the characters, which makes for a hard read for me. I'm not used to reading like that. I think that's my reasoning for the three-star rating. It wasn't a bad read but not one of my favorites.

Ivy is required to see a therapist and she's writing what happened since the last time they saw each other. Ivy had a horrible time with life as a teenager, which requires her to see a therapist weekly. The therapist finds out the name of who made Ivy's life miserable. Ivy plots revenge against Lola by weaving herself into Lola's life and destroying it from the inside out.

Like I said, I didn't find it a bad read but the characters written like they were (which I get was necessary for the plot), were extremely unlikeable. The pace was fast, the suspense was high. Overall, a fair thriller read.
