Ruined By You (Maggie & Haden #1) by Kelly Harper

Ruined by You
This book was provided by the author in return for an honest review.

Maggie Simpson is going to Green Falls, Texas for the summer. Her mom has insisted on them spending her last summer before college with family.
When they stop by a gas station, Maggie meets this sexy stranger. He wants to continue a conversation but Maggie has grown up avoiding men.
When she gets to her cousin Sarah's house, Maggie starts feeling like this is not a bad idea. Maybe time with family it's what she needs.
Both girls leave the house with Sarah's best friend. They go to the Hill Country Saloon which is a bar, but the law is a little lax in this parts of the world.
Maggie will need a summer job before college. She is able to approach the owner of the bar after Sarah introduces them.
The next day when she interviews, the stranger from the gas station is there. His name is Haden. There is mutual attraction and they end up working together.
Maggie's job is to sign in bands around the area for "The Battle of the Bands".
Spending time together is unavoidable and Maggie realizes that the walls she has around her heart are coming down.
Haden has a secret but it won't be for long.
Maggie's destiny is about to change. We are left with a cliffhanger ( but the blurb tells you about this.)

Things I liked about the book:
The cover is beautiful!
Haden-he is super sweet and sexy.
The idea of the Battles of the Bands.
The time Haden and Maggie spend together.

Things I didn't like:
Maggie is a little immature. There are things happening around her that she doesn't realize or question.
We only meet one band for the battle. I wanted to see more Maggie in action.

Favorite line:
"Where've you been all my life?" I whispered.
The water ran below us in the river, the wind rustled through the trees, and the grass swayed and whispered it song to us.
"Searching for you," he said.
I closed my eyes and squeezed him tight. I never wanted to let go.

This series has potential. I wanna know what happens next.
