Dancing has always been Cam’s passion, a passion that surpasses all else, she’s good at it and she knows it. She trained in ballet and street dance but ballet was always her calling, she’d even been at Juilliard on a full scholarship sight set on better things but then everything changed.

Now she’s a go go dancer by night and a receptionist and the local police station by day

Kincaid was her childhood sweetheart, the love of her life, dreams of the white picket fence then out of the blue years later he breaks up with her over the phone.

Now 5 years have gone by and they are in the same city, all cards are on the table he's out to win her back and there is no holding him back. Cam has other ideas, he hurt her beyond words and she wasn't after a repeat performance, so expect the push and pull on your emotions as Zeus tries to win her back because it's a rough road paved ahead for them, she's not going to make it easy for him to get back into her good graces, he has to pull out all the stops. Even though these two had been apart for so many years their love was still simmering away in the background it just needed to be ignited again. 

"We’re the real fucking deal.
Our love is what most people spend a lifetime searching for."


The love these two felt for each other sizzled off the pages, you could feel it slow burning in the background, an emotional all the feels of a second chance romance at its best.

The man was my weakness. My downfall. My ruin.
