Ditch Lane Diaries: Ruby’s Choice is the debut novel by D.F. Jones and book one of the Ditch Lane Diaries. Ruby’s Choice is a coming of age story set in the late 1970’s in Middle Tennessee with a splash of paranormal which will blossom in the second and third books of the series. Ruby’s Choice-Everglade, Tennessee, 1977 Stuck in the Middle with Two Ever since Ruby discovered an amber-encased spider web in the Campbell Ridge Cave, she has had dreams of births, deaths and glimpses into the future. Ruby’s dreams have foretold the daughter of her high school friend, Cathy, the death of her beloved Aunt Sammie, and the coming of a new love in her life. Ruby’s shift is coming to a close at Everglade General Store. As she stacks the last row of bath soap, Ruby recalls the delicious dream she had the night before. In the dream, a gorgeous guy is kissing a tickle spot, just behind her left earlobe, sending shivers up her spine. If only that dream could come true, instead of the one where a state trooper gives her a seventy-five dollar speeding ticket! Ruby snaps back to reality when she hears the store’s front door bells chime. If she didn’t know any better, she’d say the frickin’ Adonis from her sexy dream just walked through the door. Reed Jackson and Brent Brown introduce themselves to Ruby as members of the local baseball team her brother, George, manages. Brent mentions they specifically came out to the store to meet George’s hot, little sister. Ruby is slightly confused when she hears Reed murmur Tap It under his breath, but then she remembers the rumor going around campus about Reed and Brent’s dating game, where the two best friends compete to have a girl profess undying love to one of them. And Tap It is a winner takes all—all of what, though, Ruby has no clue. Ruby decides that she’ll play along, but according to her rules. She’ll suss out if either of these players is worthy of her love and respect. One thing is for sure, Ruby is no pawn. Who will be Ruby’s Choice?

My Thoughts:

The author was kind enough to send me a copy of her book in exchange for an honest review.

I couldn't put this book down once I started it. The ending was such a crazy twist I did not see coming. Ruby and her friends were exploring a cave when they stumbled into a hidden room where Ruby finds a hidden stone; after she leaves the cave with the stone she begins to have dreams that foretell the future. So, when the guy she dreamed about Reed walks into her job she is very excited especially because he is very HOT. What she doesn't know is that Reed and his friend Brent walking into the store was no coincidence, they walked in to meet her and to start a game called TapIt where they both try get the girl fall in love with one of them, but as the game goes on Brent and Reed really fall in love with her and one of them confesses the rules of the game it is then that Ruby decides to play the game as well, but someone will get hurt she just hopes its not her.

This book was so good! Ruby was such a strong character she didn’t take crap from anyone and when it came to the game she was the one calling the shots. I fell in love with Reed immediately he was such an amazing character and knew what he wanted; I also really liked Brent even though he did come across as a little over possessive at times.  This love story had me in an emotional roller-coaster towards the end I had my ugly crying face on lol. When you start the book it seems that it's going to be a paranormal, but Jones focuses mostly on the love story aspect, there is paranormal throughout the book, but like I said it mostly concentrates on the love story. The ending was much unexpected, I mean really unexpected I was in shock when I finished the book.  I really loved all the characters in this book they all have a special place in my heart. I really enjoyed this book and it’s the perfect coming of age story with a splash of paranormal in it.
