Jenova is coming
off a divorce. She’s been chatting with Davit, a man
thirteen years younger than she. She agrees to take a
vacation and meet him in a jungle at a site where he is
studying snakes. She’s not sure if this makes her crazy, or
if she’s just taking what might amount to a good risk.
Davit is very
taken with Jenova, and when they visit an archeological site
and forces take hold of them they allow things to run their
course. But what are the forces in command? And how will the
couple deal with them?
Ruins has a unique premise for a cougar tale. Jenova
is seeking to rebuild her life and Davit seems just the man
to help her. One of the reasons I choose this story was the
caution that it contained BDSM. I enjoy a good BDSM tale,
but I don’t feel like this story contained that. What I
thought was it was a semi-capture story with dubious consent
elements that marred my enjoyment of the tale.
Allure Van Sanz’s writing is vivid and the story flows
very well with the scenes easily imaginable. But I didn’t
quite see Davit in a favorable light after the middle part
of the book. Fans of capture tales will enjoy this story,
however, as the author does paint a very dramatic picture.
