Hell is looking for a way to break loose…

Jax lost the genetic lottery. Descended from Cain, the world's first murderer, he's plagued by a curse that demands violence in exchange for his happiness. He left everything behind, including the girl he loved, but thriving on the pain of others is lonely… And it's killing him.

After a series of heartbreaking losses, Samantha put rubber to pavement and headed for college as fast as her clunker could carry her. But she can't outrun her problems. When an attack at school drives her back home, she's thrown into the path of a past—and a guy—she's been trying to forget.

Sam strains Jax's control over his darkness, but running isn't an option this time. Someone—or, something—followed her home from school: a ruthless monster with a twisted plan centuries in the making. Forced together to survive, and fighting an attraction that could destroy them both, Jax and Sam must stop a killer bent on revenge.

Dream Cast, by Jus Accardo

Like a lot of authors, I feel like it helps to have visual stimulation when creating my characters. Sometimes it helps to have physical features to help put descriptions onto the page. It can help with expressions and scene description, and makes the pictures in my head flow just a little bit smoother.
A lot of work goes into this portion of writing a book. It took me long hours of grueling research to find the perfect Jax. Really. It was horrific and I in no way enjoyed a single moment.
So, anyway, today I’m here to share my cast for Ruined. Lemme know what ya think!

Kaya Scodelario as Samantha Merrick.
Kaya has an innocent, almost pixie-like look (to me, anyway), yet there’s something mischievous about her smile.

Marlon Teixeira as Jax Flynn.
Look at that expression. Fierce and dangerous and dark. Totally Jax.

Ryan Reynolds as Heckle
I can totally hear Heckle’s dialog in Ryan’s voice. They would be a perfect match!

Marlon Teixeira as Chase Flynn
A cleaner cut Marlon (yanno, since they’re twins) would make a perfect Chase!

Your turn! What’s one book that you’d love to see turned into a movie, and who would play the lead hottie?

    I still need to read one of Jus’s books but from the description of the characters as well as the actors she chose to play each of them, I’m definitely thinking I should start of with this one. I’ve been seeing positive reviews for this one everywhere! Thanks for sharing, Giselle and nice guest post! <33

    First of all, using Kaya Scodelario for a dream cast immediately interests me because I am completely in love with her. So, already I need to read this book. It also sounds awesomeeeee so I’m really excited 🙂

  3. Kaye

    Ooh, I haven’t tried out NA Paranormal before. Even after reading mysteries, horror & contemporary I always seem to come back to paranormal books. Especially books with attractive men as the cover!

  4. Tammy

    I read Ruined and really liked it, you can’t go wrong when brothers are battling:) I also read her book Touch and loved it! She writes with a great sense of humor.

    I started reading Ruins, but I hadn’t really pictured anyone in my mind for the characters so I’m happy to use this cast! I can definitely see Sam and Jax now!
