Ruin (Gods #1) Reviews
3.5 stars. Ok grovel. Nice story. But wasn’t feeling the sparks between the MCs as much as I would have liked.
What may Ruin you, may also make you stronger…
A friend of mine reached out to me to let me know there were Aussie review copies available for Ruin. I have never read a book by Samantha Towle but a lot of my friend have and loved her work. Being the Sassy lady that I am, without hesitation, I requested it. Blind. Yep, you read that right, I didn’t even look at the blurb before requesting it. Even when I was approved and downloaded my review copy, I was still in the dark. So, I loaded Ruin so I co ...more
“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 ...more
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!
“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

What a book loved it!!
This book was just amazing. I m a huge fan of this author so I knew I would enjoy this book. But it was even better than I thought it would be. I m a big lover of second chance romance there my favourite. I just love it and this story was just so good.
Zeus is just amazing he really is a God. From the very start I loved him. He might even take Jake's spot at number one. There are times when I ...more
Angsty, second chance romance with a good grovel and a strong heroine - all the things I love in my CR reads. However, a couple of things annoyed me:
Cameron .... I love how strong and sassy she was and that she put Gigi first, but I admit her push and pull/round and round got a bit old after a while. She wasn't celibate whilst they were apart, I really liked that she wasn't "saving herself" for him.
Zeus .... I couldn't decide whether he was punch drunk after all the hits to the head (he's a boxe ...more
Second chance love with the love of your life can be angsty, nostalgic, hurtful, and hopeful. But trusting someone who broke your heart and your faith in that love can also be a difficult hurdle to overcome.
I found this story to be sweet and light with the perfect blend of angsty and hopefulness. Young love, sidetracked and derailed, only to be so strong that it couldn’t be forgotten. Zeus and Cam were young when they fell in love. But their love got tested and it crumbled. But 5 years later, Z ...more
