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.

Stacia says…

This is the 3rd book in the Bowler University series, and although some of the characters from book one and two make a brief appearance, this book can be read as a standalone.

Cam is the former college roommate of Alex and Max, from Make it Count and Make it Right the first two books in the series. I’m been curious about his story from the start of this series, because he always seemed a little mysterious and intense. Fresh from graduating, Cam’s options of what to do next should be endless; but when his mom gets sick, he goes home to work and take care of her. It’s the last place he wants to be and seeing Tate again, his first love and the girl that broke his heart, is definitely the last thing he wants.

Tate had plenty of dreams for herself and for a life with Cam when they were in high school, but when her father got sick 4 years ago she stuck around to help take care of him and her little brother. Pushing Cam away, to ensure he got out of their small town and pursued his dreams seemed like a good idea at the time. That is until he comes back and she has to face him and all the unresolved feelings they have for each other.

I loved that Cam and Tate had such a history! This wasn’t just a short relationship that they had a hard time moving on from…they had been friends since the fifth grade, Cam was close with her dad and little brother, and most of their childhood memories included each other. That’s a love that is hard to move on from! I will admit that I missed the college setting from the first two books and I missed a lot of the witty banter between the characters. But, then this book does deal with much more serious subject matters. Megan brings awareness to a syndrome that not only needs more attention, but personally hits close to home for me. Fibromyalgia is really invisible to the naked eye. But the chronic pain, fatigue, and even depression are something that is lived with everyday… I appreciate and applaud Megan for showcasing this debilitating disorder.  I look forward more amazing books from Megan in 2015!
