Review: Ruin by Samantha Towle

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…

Brandi’s review

I have been super excited for the release of Ruin, I even pre-ordered and I never go that route. What can I say, the cover drew me in and Samantha Towle is on my watch list since she gave us Jake Wethers.

It’s hard to admit but this one just wasn’t what I was expecting. If you follow my reviews then you know I have been reading some epic books recently and maybe my expectations were just too high. Zeus and Dove’s story was good…but it wasn’t gripping. I easily skimmed and by the halfway mark I pushed just to finish. The story moves at a good pace but I just didn’t connect to these character’s. At times it felt repetitive with the dialogue and the plot was easily predictable.
