I give it - 4/5
My review - What a story! A book filled of what ifs, trying to get over your past and possibly letting part of your past back into your life.
In this book we meet Zeus. He is a well known boxer and tends to win each fight he's in. A year after his last fight after something happened he's back to fight one of the most dangerous of fighters. But, when he sees someone from his past he is about to find out a lot more about his life than he thought he knew.
Cam hasn't missed Zeus. It's been 5 years and she is still trying to forget her first love, her childhood sweetheart, the boy who broke her heart and to her, felt like he picked his career that was taking off over her and she has never forgave him for breaking her heart. When a chance meeting happens, Zeus is happy to see her again because he wants to tell her the truth, he wants to show that he never stopped loving her but, Cam is wary. She doesn't want to let him back in but, when he shows up on her doorstep one day she can't hide the one thing from him that she thought he would never want to know about.
Zeus is about to get the shock of his life. But, is he willing to let Cam go this time? After finding out the truth will Cam and Zeus find there way back to each other or will Cam push Zeus away after being lied to, too many times? Or will the truth persuade her to let her heart open again to him.
This was such a good book. I really enjoyed reading about Zeus and Cam. About where their lives led them after the break up and what brought them back together. What was going through both of their minds at time and just seeing the connection between them. Zeus loves being a fighter but, Cam was his first love and when he finds out about some lies from years ago it changes his mind certain things. Cam doesn't trust Zeus and feels like she can't forgive him but, she can't get past the feeling of longing and love when she see's him. She sees the guy she fell in love with and always feels the connection. But, how do you get your heart and head to agree when one is always saying no.
Cam and Zeus both have their flaws, they both have their secrets and meeting again is about to open a new chapter for them. It is full of drama, romance, secrets and so much more and I can't recommend this enough! Such a fun book that deals with heartbreak, lies and possibly letting your heart open again.
