ARC Review: Roman Holiday #4: Ravaged by Ruthie Knox

The blurb as seen on Goodreads:
Release Date: December 2, 2013
Publisher: Loveswept
54 Pages

As the road trip up the Eastern Seaboard continues in Episode 4 of Ruthie Knox’s eBook original serial, Roman Holiday, sparks are flying—but Ashley and Roman are farther than ever from seeing eye-to-eye about what matters most.

In the fourth installment of Roman Holiday, our crazy couple find themselves at the first stop along Sunnyvale memory lane. While Ashley is hoping to show Roman what a gem Sunnyvale is and how much it means to people, she underestimates Roman's knack of reading people. Emotions are getting high, tempers simmering below surfaces, and passion just waiting to escape.

I feel like in this one, while I'm still not loving Ashely's childish behavior, I am understanding her more. And I do feel bad for her, but I also wish that she would own up to what's going on and try to cope. She spends all her energy on trying to make Roman see things from her angle, that she doesn't even take time to see where he's coming from.

And then there's Roman. Oh, I do feel bad for him, but at the same time, he's letting himself be dragged all over the South. If he really wanted to, he could just go back to Florida and tear down Sunnyvale. But instead he's giving into Ashley's crazy whims.

These two are both so messed up that it's a miracle any of them can actually function. While they finally give into one feeling in this installment, I think they need to connect on a different level if any progress is going to be made.

I received an e-copy of this novel for my honest opinion and review from the publisher via Netgalley.
