RUIN Release and Review

by Samantha Towle

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…

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: It's no secret that I'm a huge Samantha Towle awkward fangirl (I managed to prattle on at her about her shoes and forget to get a picture with her at a recent book signing) so I always make sure to approach every new release of hers without bias and be as objective as possible. That being said, I can always rely on Samantha to provide a fun, dramatic and swoon worthy story full of sexy charm and witty banter!

Sam is the Queen of bad boys. She gave us rockstars and racers to swoon over, and now we have badass boxer Zeus

Zeus and Cameron were school sweethearts. She was the good girl ballerina who won his heart. They were love's young dream until life and his career got in the way, and he does the unthinkable. Cam's left with a broken heart and one heck of a life changer that she sure wasn't expecting.

Years later and Cam is a different kind of dancer and Zeus is a superstar fighter. Cam's locked down her feelings and Zeus remains a traumatic memory for her. As far as she's concerned he didn't want her or Gigi, so she's not prepared for him to make a sudden reappearance back in her life making all kinds of demands and promises.

I really liked Cam. She's funny, sweet and sassy. I loved her relationship with her aunt and Gigi is just too cute. Zeus is full of the usual Samantha Towle leading man cocky charm and swagger. He's vulnerable and oh-so caring. I'm really hoping we get to see more of his siblings...

I love a second chance romance because there's something wonderful about watching characters who  thought they missed their chance at a HEA realising that just maybe they can find one after all. Team Towle for the win! 

4.5 Stars in my Sky!
