Anthony Rosas never struck me as a character with much passion, or a backbone for that matter, but in this story, we are shown a different side to him and I liked it very much! Anthony and Ruby were high school sweethearts but Ruby had put her career above all else and left Anthony. No matter their history, Anthony had never wished Ruby ill and when they happened to run into each other again he realized that his passion for her had never dimmed. First though, Anthony had to figure out what it was that he truly desired because a road with Ruby would not be the easy or socially acceptable one. What he did know was that he was going to help her get her career back, even if she never wanted a relationship with him outside of that of a manager. He also knew that if he was going to be granted this second chance at having her in his life he was going to have to work hard for it because Ruby had been burned badly.
I loved the desire that was created between Ruby and Anthony! They burned hot for each other but with all the years and mistakes between them they were uncertain if that would be enough. Ruby loved Anthony as a boy but she didn’t know if she could trust him as a man. There was a great sexual tension between these two characters and the push-pull between them was nicely done. This series has its fair share of despicable characters but Ruby’s ex-husband wins the prize for being the worst. I did like the dramatic tension that was created with his addition to the story, it kept me fully engaged in the story wondering what was going to happen next! Overall, My Vegas Comeback was a fabulous historical piece of fiction with an unconventional romance for the times! It also had a malevolent force with sinister intentions and enough conflict to keep you on the edge of your seat! It was a great read!!
This review is based on a complimentary book I received from Author, Lori Sizemore. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.
Nothing unusual about getting divorced I hear you say and I agree in this day and age it would barely raise a titter but roll back the years to the 1950’s and that attitude would see you in very hot water indeed, and this was very much the case for Ruby because with the dissolution of her marriage she was faced with the truth that her Ex used every trick in the book, pulled every favour and achieved the one thing she hopes that he couldn’t…he scuppered her career, making sure that no reputable venue would give her the opportunity to show the world just how talented she really was.
More fool them because this was a woman that given the chance could bring the house down, and despite her current situation, she had lost none of the mettle that saw her persevere with her divorce but this time she had a new focus…to get her career back.
Previous connections were vital but the damage that her Ex had done seemed to be impenetrable, even with the help of the one man that genuinely had her best interest at heart, the man that had let her slip through his fingers when her passion and career had initially taken off. Anthony Rosas was a true gent, just the man that Ruby needed in her corner but was his support going to be enough to see her finally get back to where she belonged, in the spotlight?
Anthony was a super character, rueful of the day he lost the love of his life, his life hasn’t exactly taken the path he had hoped…namely, because he didn’t have Ruby in it. But now she’s back I understood just how much he wanted to be the man that she needed but I couldn’t help but wonder if he had bitten off more than he could chew when it comes to undoing the damage that Ruby was mired in.
As I expected the story was beautifully written, the tone and pitch transported me back to an era that is long forgotten, one where men wielded power over their women like they were possessions and took their revenge in any way they could, holding nothing back in their pursuit of retribution. Ruby’s ex-husband was easy to hate, his behaviour was easy to take exception too, but I had to constantly remind myself that of that time, he was behaving in a manner that many would have perceived that he should. It was a real eyeopener and gave me the opportunity to reflect on how far things have come.
Could Ruby get her career? Could Anthony get his woman?
This was an engaging love story, a shot at love the second time around and a catalogue on what they had to endure to get to what and where they desperately wanted to be.
Congratulations Ms Sizemore this was a super read and a valuable glimpse of what those that have gone before us when through.
Another short book, the author has nevertheless packed an impressive amount of story within the virtual pages.
Ruby is great. I love her spirit and her passion. And Anthony? He is something of a revelation - even to himself.
The supporting cast here add the needed colour and drama to the story, and have you very definitely in Ruby's corner.
The narrative unfolds in a very organic way, such that even though I don't tend to read books which aren't contemporary in setting, this nevertheless felt relevant and grounded.
A truly enjoyable series.
