    I guess she forgot quickly that he told her that he cheated on her over the phone? She just sitting there talking to him like nothing has happened? The f*ck? I would be plotting cutting his d*ck!!

    I don't care that they have a kid together and they're talking about introducing him to her but if I were her I wouldn't bother introducing my daughter to this asshole. I'm a cold hearted bitch and I wouldn't forgive him at all.

    Thank goodness she hasn't been celibate during those 5 years but poor sex w

    “The man is my weakness. My downfall. My ruin. He always has been. And it seems that he always will be.”


    Ok, I know I’m a little late to the Samantha Towle bandwagon, but better late than never right? Another new-to-me-author and OMG what a story to start with. I am a huge sucker for angsty second chance love stories and Ruin had it in spades. I adored Zeus and Cameron’s story to the point where I couldn’t stop reading even if I wanted to. Samantha Towle wrote a highly addictive story about ...more

    It's live!



    'Ruin,' absolutely won me over with the power of its charismatic lovable characters and dramatic story line that took me on a romantic, passionate journey of second chance love set in the world of boxer, Zeus Kincaid and Cameron, the girl he once loved.

    Zeus is at the height of his profession but one might say he and Cameron paid a heavy price for his career. In stark contrast Cameron works to make ends meet and had to sacrifice her ambition of being a professional ballerina. The story

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

    Zeus Kincaid, holy fuck that man melt my knickers.

    I read this book back in December and still remember it like it was yesterday. It’s one of THOSE books. I literally couldn’t put it down and fell in love with every page. Like the second I finished I wanted to start all over again. Oh the motherfucking FEELS!!

    Now back to Zeus…I mean just the name alone is enough to bring a girl to he

    I think for the most part she was strong but as always “betraying body” always has to get in the way of her strong resolve not to give in!

    “You just don’t get it, Zeus. There is no moving forward because I can’t forgive you!”

    The next thing I know, he’s in front of me, grabbing my face in his hands. “There has to be because I love you so fucking much.” The raw emotion in his eyes and voice tears at me. “I know you love me, Cam. I know I’m not alone in this. We’re the real fucking deal. Our love is what most people spend a lifetime searching for and never find. Don’t throw us away, please.”

    “I didn’t throw us away,” I whisp

    Deliciously sweet and a somewhat angsty second chance romance. Plus he gave good grovel. The conflict was kind of predictable but the story really held its own and was quite enjoyable.

  • Snow

    Urgh...

    This book...

    This book kept me up all night...and I've read it in one sitting...I gluped it, and that's Samantha Towle's writing, for ya.

    She writes the most infuriating tension and pent up anticipation like no one...*wink*

    and yet, me and the "second chance" romances have a bit stretched relationship, to start with...

    In second chance romances I need to segments to function perfectly, for me to be able to get pass the "fuck-up" and give the characters the "second chance" , those being :

    1)

    Twenty-five years old, I'm undefeated. Olympic champion. Internaitonal Boxing Federation and World Boxing Council world heavyweight champion.

    Everything I've had to do, endure, sacrifice has brought me to this moment.


    Well, good for you!

    And while achieving all that, you dumped your highschool sweetheart of four years over a phone while you were concentrating on your boxing career. By telling her that you cheated on her

    (which we later hear that you lied about, but still, why the fuck would we believe you now, when you lied about it in the first place, who says you're not lying now, huh?!)

    okay, digressing here...

    anyway, NOW, 4 years later, he comes back to hometown case of the upcoming match for another title he's after, and he accidentaly sees "his ex-love of his life" Cameron/Cam dancing in the club and from there on, all of a sudden he has a NEW reason to come back - he wants THEM back together

    BUT then, he also finds out that he has a daughter Gigi, he never KNEW existed.

    Oh yeah, and just to state here, that when she found out that she was prego, she called him to tell him, but he cut her off, he cut all contacts and she left a message to his slimy agent, who never told him the news.

    And well, now you can just imagine the turmoil in front of ya, can't you?

    And I'm sure you have a lot of questions, don't ya?

    the explanation...WHY? Why DID he fuck up four years ago?

    I thought, if I sacrificed my own happiness by letting you go, that I would be doing the right thing for my family. You'd get over me. You'd move on and have this amazing career as a dancer.




    you see, that was kinda lame...in my book

    [image error]

    so, the REASON...lacking....but moving on, lets see what she did...

    So, he's asking to see his daughter and to get to know her, since he's been missing out on her for four years, so, she allows that, cause suddenly he has rights, even though, she "hated" him for all that time thinking HE abandoned his own child. And she never could get pass that "cheating" thing, even though he said he lied about it to cut her off...

    Shit, even now as I go on, Zeus sinks even deeper in my line vision LOL

    anyway, what I'm trying to say is that Cam, gave in to Zeus, too soon...it may seem longer cause of the number of pages in the book BUT in fact, she kinda slipped up pretty fast...

    The man is my weakness. My downfall. My ruin. He always has been. And it seems that he always will be.


    that's kinda sad, actually, cause it looks like you've been hanging on a thread here, dear!

    Cause, just think, if he hadn't come back for that match, would he come back at all?

    Well, we'd never know, will we?

    I guess, that's the point of second chances, huh?

    Believing and keeping the fate that you won't be crushed again...

    sure, Cam fights it, cause she's afraid of being hurt again...and she doesn't trust him

    I don't trust him with my feelings. I've been hurt by Zeus Kincaid once before. i'm not looking for a repeat performance.

    ...when you love someone-really love them-you fight for them. You fight hard and dirty, no matter the cost to yourself. And not once have you ever fought for me.


    And just that sentence alone, should have been a trigger for Cam to hold on tighter to her belief until she truly sees he's changed...



    Okay, I'm already tired after writing this and I feel like I've been going around in circles...

    Exhausting, really

    Anyway, the point to all this ranting here, is, the fact that Zeus didn't redeem himself, in my eyes, nor did he grovel enough, even though I can't really portray him as a bad guy, he's imperfect, sure, we all are...but he's kind of annoying in all this macho puffing his chest and all, and in his actions, he's trying to "show" Cam that she's still jealous...which makes me think, he's only emphisizing the "sexual" connection between them, cause WTF?!

    You were supposed to show her the side of you, she can lean on, emotionally - sexually being only a bonus.

    And Cam, well, this constant "jo-jo" effect she's pulling off, I get that she's scared of being hurt, but then, she should have delt with the matter in question first and then hop into bed with him. But she just caves in, then she regrets it...and than again, and again...damn, that's low, even from a woman's perspective...

    it's not like SEX is gonna open your eyes suddenly, the sex part wasn't your issues in the first place...you know what I mean?

    BUT watever...I obviously didn't connect to either of them, and that has nothing to do with Samantha Towle's writing, cause that was the part, the main essence that kept me reading.

    BUT unfortnatelly, I couldn't be "happy" for me, in the end, but I guess, they deserved each other in the end, so yoooohooo!



    I'm sure, this is another case of "it's me NOT you" kinda thing, so don't pass up on this book, those of you who LOVE second chance romances with an angsty touch, and you don't dwell upon the little shit stuff, too much, then THIS is the PERFECT book for you!
