Blog Tour excerpt+giveaway+playlist+trailer: RUIN YOU COMPLETELY by Calia Read

Thursday, February 05, 2015

I met Mathias Sloan in a club.

I told him I was twenty-four.
I told him my name was Olivia.
I thought that I would have a one-night stand and be done with him.
I didn’t know that he was my new piano instructor for the next six months…
We would come together and fall apart. After him, every man was ruined.
If I knew what I know now, I wouldn’t have walked to him. I would’ve turned and run…


Neuschwanstein stood tall and imposing to our left. People craned their necks back and took pictures. For the passionate picture takers was a ledge where you could step out and take pictures of the mountains and the stream below. Not a lot of people walked out onto the observation ledge. Forget that it was made out of steel. If you can see the deep ravine beneath you then you’re seeing way too much. Most people took a few shots of the castle and hurried off.
Without a second thought I grabbed Mathias’ hand and dragged him toward that direction.
“Come on,” I urged.
I’d been here so many times; the novelty of it should have been old. Yet a rush of excitement ran through me. Maybe it was the tourists or maybe it was the man next to me who gave me this feeling.
That man was now frozen in place like a block of ice. He stared down at the deep ravine as if it was the portal to hell.
“Mathias, come on.”
“Fuck no.”
He took a step back. I stepped onto the steel ledge. He turned white.
“Come out here and see the view.”
Mathias hands disappeared into his jean pockets. He rocked back on his heels, looking ready to bolt.
I couldn’t believe it. This man, who towered over most people, was afraid of heights.
“Come on,” I coaxed one more time. I couldn’t keep the small smile from my face. In my position, I don’t think anyone would blame me. It was nice to see that Mathias wasn’t perfect. He had flaws. He had fears.
“Katinka,” he warned.
“Don’t be scared.”
“I’m not scared,” he replied quickly.
I quirked a brow and gestured to the open space next to me. “Then come stand next to me.”
Mathias didn’t move.
“Live a little,” I challenged. I held my hand out, not expecting him to take it. My hand wavered in the cold air, and I smiled softly and said, “Please?”
