Ravage by Jessica Prince
Series: Civil Corruption Book 4
Release Date: September 10, 2018
Synopsis: Mason Keller is broken, destructive, and the only man I’ve ever loved.
I met him when I was just a child, but I knew there would never be anyone else.
He lit my world with each smile and warmed my heart just by looking at me.
But he was my brother’s best friend…
Which meant I was off limits.
So he let me go and took my heart with him.
Now everything has changed, and the obstacles that kept us apart all our lives are no longer in the way.
He wants to claim me.
He wants to own me.
He wants to ravage my world.
And if I’m not careful…
I just might let him.
I stopped in the doorway, propping my shoulder against the jamb. Then I did what I’d done every night for the past four and a half years. I looked to that picture on her nightstand, feeling that familiar swell in my chest at the sight of it. Then I turned my gaze to her and watched as she lay on her stomach, stretched across our bed with her feet kicked up in the air while she scrawled in that old leather-bound journal I’d bought her years ago. It was something she’d done every night since we found it in a box in that storage building, taking a few minutes to herself to recount her day on paper. It was her own personal quiet time that she loved, and I always made sure to give her the privacy she needed to do it.
As if sensing my presence, she turned her head and hit me with a beaming smile. “Hey.”
“Hey, baby. Am I interrupting?”
“Nope,” she answered, using the ribbon to mark her page and flipping the journal closed. “All done. Will go down okay?”
“Out like a light.”
She bit her bottom lip and lowered her eyelids to half-mast as she pushed up and sat back on her haunches. The pale purple nightie she was wearing teased at all the beauty that lay beneath. “Perfect, ’cause I’m in the mood to play.”
About the Author:
Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.
Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.
In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.
Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.

Jessica’s Princesses: http://bit.ly/JPsPrincesses
Will was an original member of Civil Corruption until Mace replaced him and they were also best friends. Lyla is Will’s sister and she has loved him since she was 10 years old and it was the deep in your soul kind of love not a crush.
Four years later the band is returning from their tour and Lyla is not going to let this opportunity go to waste. She has been planning how to break the news of her feelings to Will but in all her dreams she never imagined the heart crushing pain she would feel when he says that they can never be together.
Separately they move on with their lives but the decisions they make while they are apart have damaged both of them. Fate has thrown them together once more but will this be the time that Mace realizes they were always meant to be together or will they both end up with a broken heart again?
I loved both these characters. Lyla never wavered in her love for Mace despite what life brought them and Mace’s decisions were made with the best of intentions. I am sorry to see this series end but this book is a great way to end it.
