#Review: Ruin by Samantha Towle @samtowlewrites
From Samantha Towle, the New York Times bestselling author of Wardrobe Malfunction and Breaking Hollywood, comes a dramatically powerful and passionate new contemporary romance.
And the new heavyweight champion of the world is…
Those are the words that Zeus Kincaid has been waiting to hear since he first put on a pair of boxing gloves. He just didn’t think they would come with a tragedy that would change how he viewed the sport forever.
Cameron Reed was in her second year at Juilliard when her childhood sweetheart, Zeus Kincaid, walked away from her. A few months later, Cam realized that she would never fulfill her dream of dancing for the New York City Ballet.
Now working as a dancer in an upscale club in Manhattan, Cam is brought face-to-face with the man she once loved. And it’s her turn to walk away from him.
After five years of missing Cam, Zeus isn’t prepared to let her go again. But when he finds himself standing on her doorstep the next morning, things don’t go quite as he expected…
It’s always nice to get unexpected book post when that book post is a second chance romance featuring a well built hot boxer named after a Greek God then I’m all in baby! Zeus Kincaid dreamed of being the world’s best boxer, it’s all he’s ever wanted. Except for ballet dancer Cameron Reed. From the moment they met as teenagers they were destined for each other and then he broke both of their hearts by walking away thinking it was the best thing for their careers.
It has taken Zeus five years to knock on her door and he has so much more to make up for than he even knows when he knocks that door. Cam is one of those women you can’t help but love. A single mother, she works two jobs and puts her daughter first in everything she does. So having Zeus back in her life is difficult and not something she wants to deal with.
She doesn’t want her emotions re-ignited, she doesn’t want to be reminded of the love she still holds for him, she doesn’t want him upsetting her simple life. But Zeus is a man on a mission and he isn’t taking these things into consideration in his single-minded pursuit of the woman he loves.
Zeus was all alpha male, but soft-hearted to the core. He fought this battle like a true boxer, strategically and carefully. Taking hits when he needed to and pushing through each round like a pro. He came in knowing what he wanted and didn’t let any of the surprises along the way put him off.
I loved this book, it was paced really well with characters you couldn’t help but love thoroughly.
