There is a reason why I don’t hesitate when I see a new Kennedy Ryan’s book, I just jump as high as I can to get it. This author, for me, it’s one of the best in the contemporary romance genre that I’ve read. Feelings from one side of the spectrum to the other are inside her books and there is no way to hide from them.
In the case of Long Shot, it started a little slow. It took me a while to get into the story, like a couple of chapters, but once I was into the story there was no way I was putting the book down. I read it late at night, everybody else sleeping and I was able to show every feeling that came from the book. I laugh, I cried, I cringed I wanted to punch somebody… it was just amazing.
When you look at the characters you see deep people, not shallow characters that could be replaced. There is no way you could replace August or Iris in this story, no way, no how. No matter what problem each character presented, they were irreplaceable, in my opinion. They have flaws people! That’s even more amazing. This fact just shows how awesome Kennedy Ryan is to write such compelling, relatable, attractive and deep characters.
I got a good chunk of quotes from this story, not only funny ones but also those that I want to put on my wall to remember every day. I always admire authors that can put that kind of stuff in a book without sounding preachy or corny or even downright cliché.
If you haven’t yet read this book I would recommend you pick it up right now. There is no way you’re going to regret it. From the memorable events, the relatable feelings and sexy times to the more deep, heart moving elements of this book. You can’t go wrong with Kennedy Ryan’s Long Shot.
