After graduating from Bowler University, the last place Cam Ruiz ever expected to find himself is his hometown. A bad job as a bouncer and worry over his mom’s health make living in Paradise anything but. There’s only one thing that can make his return any harder—running into the only girl he’s ever loved.
Tate Ellison made a mistake when she was eighteen, one that cost her the best thing she’s ever had. She’s always hoped the regret of losing Cam would fade over time. Too bad it’s only grown. She took comfort in the fact she’d never have to face him again, so his presence in Paradise throws her for a loop.
The pull between them is instant and when the truth of what happened years ago tumbles out, they share a mind-blowing kiss...which leads to more. But the past has a way of repeating itself. When all the cards are on the table, Cam and Tate must decide what they are willing to do to make it last.
Sometimes when I read a book, my emotions get blindsided. Such is the case with this book. It's not that the situation is too close to home as much as the feeling of the characters are close to my own. And that tells you how real this book feels to me.
Tate thought she knew what was best for everyone around her and that always meant she took the worst of it as a result. Yes, I do that sometimes. So I get Tate. It's also why I wanted to smack her sometimes. But I love her just the same.
Speaking of love, I adore Cam. He's yummy and determined. I love that he comes home to help his mom. I love that he still loves Tate. I love that he believes her when all is said and done. I love the game they play together. He's one hunky Hispanic and I'm so happy for him.
It was great seeing characters from the first two books in this one. They made cameo appearance but you didn't need to know their story to read this one. It definitely can be read stand alone.
The story had me wondering a lot at the beginning. But as it unfolded, I figured things out and enjoyed every page of it.
This is fast read that I just slowed down some because of my emotions. But anyone who loves the new adult genre will want to pick this one right up. Enjoy.
She’s got a couple of tattoos, has a thing for gladiators and has been called a crazy cat lady. After working as a journalist for years, she decided she liked creating her own endings better and switched back to fiction.
She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, two kids and two cats. And no, she still can’t reach the stupid top shelf.
