I’m very excited to be reviewing Jina S. Bazzar’s latest novel, From Fame to Ruin! Check out all the info, my review, and let me know what you think in the comments!
From Fame to Ruin will be released on December 21st!!!!!
What if surviving a murder attempt, a heartbreak, and the loss of the family business wasn’t the hardest thing you ever faced?
Carol is the sole heir to a broken empire, Ricardo the newest celebrity in the rock world.
When they came together, their fire blazed. When their past caught up, they were left burned, scorched to the ground.
When a psychopath decides it’s payback time, Carol is faced with an impossible choice – save her son or sell her life.
Ricardo wants nothing to do with the woman who played him for a fool, but finds himself moored by circumstances, half truths, and memories of the past.
They say time can heal anything. So far, time’s brought nothing but complications.
This is not my first read from Jina S. Bazzar, so this was a highly anticipated novel for me. Let me tell you, I was NOT disappointed!! From Fame to Ruin is a standalone romantic thriller. It starts off with a bang and keeps the reader gripped to the pages until the very end.
The romance aspect is very unique, in my opinion. The story follows Carol and Ricardo, who had quite a routine fling that ended pretty awful, years before the events of this book. When Carol’s son is kidnapped and held for ransom, she turns to Ricardo.
These two characters are expertly developed. I really enjoyed the dual timeline and POV switches between the two. It really helps to understand the characters and their lives, past and present. It is not an easy style to write in, and Jina S. Bazzar pulls it off, incredibly.
The story is paced very well, with a plot meant to hook the readers attention. Fans of romantic thrillers will enjoy this, I think. I can’t wait to read more from this author. I highly recommend giving this a read.
Thank you to author Jina S. Bazzar for providing a free ARC review copy of From Fame to Ruin. I voluntarily read this and all opinions are my own and unbiased.
I’m a freelance writer, a blogger, a mother, a baker, a chocolate fiend, a coffee enthusiast, and sometimes a poet. A wanderer in this vast world, I’m just another body with a passion for the written word. There is no boundary I can’t cross, no limit I can’t push; my mind is my passport, my thoughts my mode of transportation.
I was born and raised in a quiet, small town in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where I’ve had a happy and fulfilling childhood.
Like most writers out there, my love of books began at a young age. Unlike most authors out there, I never aspired to become one.
Soon after high school graduation I developed a chronic disease that caused gradual vision loss. I was blind at the age of twenty-three, and reading became one of many things I could no longer do.
That is, until I started working for an organization for women with disabilities and learned about screen readers. After I quit my job, I picked up reading with vengeance, but soon realized it was no longer enough, and so I started writing, this time with an aim to pursue a career. Heir of Ashes is my debut novel, a creation born from my love of anything fairy, of action-packed stories and a touch of romance. Besides fiction, I’ve written dozens of articles for Conscious Talk magazine, on topics of health, food, poetry and the writer’s life.
When I’m not writing or networking on social media, you can find me in the kitchen, listening to loud music while baking (often misshapen) goodies, or cooking favorite dishes.
My inspiration comes from most anything, a discussion, a friend, an animal or plant, events, memories, music, etc – in other words, from life itself.
