This wasn’t a typical romance novel, but I loved the path it took to get there. Be warned tho there are MAJOR trigger warnings all throughout this book so that’s definitely something to be cautious of. But I feel like the author did a great job navigating the heavy topics of the books and giving them a realistic feel.
This was the first book I’ve read by Kennedy Ryan and I can’t wait to check out more of her other stuff

It’s been a hot minute since a book has captured me completely and every time I had to pause…you know, for adult responsibilities like work

This was an intense read that had my heart clenching and I wasn’t sure how I was going to be able to finish this story. On the outside looking in Iris “had it all’ but all that glitters isn’t gold. We had several tense moments in this story and at times it FELT SO REAL. I felt the terror right along with Iris. Then we have August who is the right guy but the timing is wrong. As time goes on these two are reconnected and I really liked the slow burn and build up. Especially after everything Iris has gone through in her prior relationship. I know my review may be vague but I really don’t want to give anything away. This is a story that you need to go in blind like I did and just ride the waves and feel the feels.
This book was NOT what I expected in the least! I’ve never read anything by Kennedy Ryan and her words sucked me in from the first page. I also loved how realistic and relatable this story was and how accurate someone in this situation can be treated. Kennedy Ryan hit the nail on the head with this story. I’m also picky about my sports romance novels and this had the perfect blend of both in this story. After reading this book I will definitely be bumping up Flow, Grip and Still that have been sitting on my kindle patiently waiting for me to read them!
