Release Blitz with Review: Ruin by Samantha Towle

March 6, 2018

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…

‘You’ll be smitten with everything about this entertaining, steamy and feel-good romance’ USA Today’s Happy Ever After on Breaking Hollywood.

RUIN has a special pre-order price of $0.99 – please feel free to post about the special pricing, before release day, using the provided teasers. Price will rise to $3.99 on release day.

“This man…. He ruins me. Every word. Every look. Every touch. But there’s no one I'd rather be ruined by than him. “ 

I’m a huge fan of second chance romances. Missed connections, wrong timing, manipulations, whatever it was that made the love of your life walk out the door, I’m all for picking up the pieces and trying to move on. Only to come and find out, that you can’t really move on because that person who left? Took your heart in the process and just seeing them again, will bring out the best and worst in you.

At the age of fifteen, Cam knew that she were looking into the eyes of the love of her life for the very first time. From the moment they met, Zeus became Cam’s everything and the feeling was mutual. For four years they were happy and in love. That is, until everything changed and one phone call wrecked the course of their lives. 

Now five years later, Cam is a different person. She’s stronger, more confident, and she tries her best to do a very important job. But the past has a way of never staying in it’s place and with that , you get a man like Zeus showing up on your doorstep out of the blue. Hey.. Real love isn’t without a little complication. 

First off let me just say that I freaking loved Zeus!! I felt for him in everything and I just loved him as a person. He was most certainly stubborn a few times but he fought like hell to get Cam back. His love never wavered and I Iiked the fact that for such a macho man, he had his vulnerable moments and that showed he was human. Now as for Cam, I did not like her at all! I’m sorry but you know what they say..

I definitely understood her hesitation and concerns when it came to letting Zeus back into her life but it took her waaay too long to get over her anger and resentment. I felt like Zeus was waking on egg shells around this chick and I wanted to shake the hell out of her and tell her to stop being so petty but you know what? I’ve never been in a situation like her and everyone reacts differently. I guess this was her way. 

If you’re looking for a semi angst second chance story, then you should give this one a try.
