Publisher's Summary

Ruby James has finally made it. As an official Rater, she's reached upper class society and all that comes with it - a huge house in a guarded neighborhood, box seats, and an elite client list. She even has the perfect boyfriend to go with it, one she expects to marry as soon as her career settles.
Then she uncovers a terrible secret. One her boss will do anything to protect.
Now Ruby must decide how much her dreams truly mean to her. Can she remain silent and keep everything she's worked for, or does she dare risk it all to fight for justice?
This is the companion story to Numbers Ignite, book two of the best-selling and award-winning Numbers Game saga. However, as a prequel, it can be listened to at any point in the series.

Good - But Listen to Series First

This is a good short story no matter how you look at it, but I disagree the description that you can read it at any time while reading the series. I think you should listen to at least the first book if you are going to listen to this story.

This takes place in the same setting as the other Number Game books. It was actually a really good story and I wish it could have been longer. If it had been a full-length book then I would say that you could just listen to this story first, but I think the first book gives a lot more of the backstory that will make you appreciate the story more.

Narration was just as good as the other two books.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

Another great novella in this world

4.5 out of 5 stars

Ruby's Story was really enjoyable. It made me realize that I'm going to have to read the two full-length books in the series soon because I enjoyed the two short stories as much as I did.

The narration was done by Stacey Glemboski who does a really great job voicing Ruby and the world around her. She made this already short story feel even more compact and easy to digest. The perfect narrator for Ruby's Story.

I don't know who Ruby is in relation to the rest of the story (if she's in it at all), but I can tell you this -- Rode does a great job making it so that people who have never read the other two books can still jump into this with no problem. I had a little knowledge of the Numbers world from the other short story I read, but this still made perfect sense to me.

The story itself is based on a premise that I really liked. I liked the fact that she did exactly what she wanted instead of what the people in power above her thought that she would do.

Honestly, I really liked the length of the short story/novella too. It made for a quick read and I feel like I gained something from it too. Sometimes you don't need 400 pages to tell a story (though this one could definitely be continued easily -- and it very well might be in one of the Numbers Game series's other books).

Overall, Ruby's Story was a really enjoyable novella. The perfect length for a late night read without keeping me up all night!

I received this audiobook as a gift, but that has not affected my review in any way.
