Cruz was a short steamy MMA romance novel that had an enjoyable storyline. I enjoyed the storyline of the story and found that it was a great beginning for a new series by this author. There was a lot of emotion entwined throughout the story and some angst that really had my heart breaking. Both of the main characters had a lot of chemistry with each other and both faced a lot of lost.

Layla, I enjoyed reading about because of the strength that she showed throughout the story and the way that she looked after her father. It showed how much she cared for her family.

Cruz was a strong and silent type alpha male that was there for Layla and her father during their time of need. I loved the way he stepped up to help Layla despite not knowing her and the way that he helped her out. It really showed how much of a good guy that he was.

Cruz is about Layla who ran away from her hometown due to the pain that she was reminded of every time she was in town. But a devastating lost saw her returning home where she meets the newest member of her dad’s gym Cruz.

I would have liked there to of been more detail about Cruz’s past and more about the two characters together. But that’s because I really enjoyed Cruz and wanted to know as much about him as possible and I really liked the characters together because they really connected with each other from the first moment they met. I really enjoyed the storyline and the writing style was flawless as always by this author. I cannot wait to read more in this new series.
