Summary

From Samantha Towle, the New York Times best-selling 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....

Dad meets Daughter

I love the relationship that builds between the father and the daughter. All the different relationships are interesting.

A great read!

Zeus walked away from Cam five years ago. When he sees her dancing in a club in Manhattan he wants her back. But things have changed and to get her back Zeus must win the fight of his life. It's a great read. I highly recommend it. I loved the narrator's too!

Bad female audio recording and where's Lee Samuels

The audio of Summer Morton had some bad recording. She was the main narrator. I bought this with a credit and only heard Lee Samuels in the introduction which was disappointing. I don't appreciate seeing a dual narration when it really isn't. You only hear one or two chapters from the second narrator. The story was okay. I didn't understand why Cameron chose that particular line of work for a second job when she had a good first job. She was too stubborn when it came to her former high school sweetheart, Zeus, which dragged the story longer. I can go on and on with other aspects of the characters. Unfortunately, it was not worth my credit.

What happen to Lee Samuels?...

He disappeared after the 1st chapter! Lee is one of my favorite narrators and one of the reasons I purchased this. I was disappointed not to hear him☹️ Story was vanilla but could’ve been vanilla w/ chocolate syrup if Lee would’ve been narrating more.

4 Fight for You STARS!

I have to start off by saying that Gigi stole the show! Such a sweet and adorable girl. Summer Morton did an amazing job voicing her character. The book is told almost entirely in the heroines POV so if you are listening just to hear Lee Samuels you might be disappointed. I would have liked a few more chapters in Z's POV especially to see what was going on in his head during the phone call that changed everything. With that said I really liked the book. Cam is such a strong and loyal person. She picked up the pieces of her life post Z and did what she had to do and I admire that about her. As for Z well you'll be mad at him but as you get to know the why behind all his decisions the anger will lessen. If you're looking for a second chance story with a few j/p moments thrown in there I definitely recommend this book!

Narration 5+ STARS!
As mentioned above Summer Morton is great at different voices and I had no problem following along. Lee Samuels chapters were perfect as well.

Good story, bad editing

The story was great, loved Zeus.... swoon... could not stand Cam, I mean seriously at first I was behind her and her anger, once it was revealed about the first twist the anger should have been gone and focus on the issue at hand, once the second show dropped about the original reason they broke up, done she should have been completely over it, directing her anger to the person that really caused all the mess and focus on the future.. instead she was wishy washy, back and forth.. total bitch and I just wanted to smack her. 😡
Gigi was awesome. Zeus was amazing, all the Kincaids need their own book.

Audio was not the greatest. Several times it sounded like it was under water or talking through a metal can. Please edit your stuff better.

Lee Samuel, chapter 1 and then where the hell did he go??? I mean seriously. Kinda want my money back on this

Enjoyable

This was enjoyable. I didn't really understand a few things along the way such as Cam ...a lot but that is what makes the story, I LOVED ZEUS and his family. However i again had some issues with Zeus and his excuses and finances. Overall i just liked the story so much and the audible performance was okay (lost the male along the way?)that I just let some of the small things go.
