RATING: BUY IT
Kennedy Ryan is one of my auto-buy authors—I could read her grocery list and be perfectly content. Her heroes, Rhyson, from the Soul series, and Grip, from the Grip series, have been two of my all-time favorite guys. When I saw that she was coming out with a sports romance, I started patiently checking off the days on my calendar, waiting for Long Shot.
August + Iris’s story is a slow burn romance that will have you glued to your seat. I started reading before bed, closing it when I thought I was at a good stopping point, only to be awakened in the wee hours of the morning with thoughts and questions running through my head. What was going to happen next? Of course, I couldn’t go back to bed, so back into August + Iris’s world I went. Readily.
Their story is one of survival and digging deep to find strength. It’s also a love story that I will hold near and dear to my heart for a long, long time to come. Ms. Ryan will rip your heart out, only to piece it back together. She writes with such raw feeling and depth, I felt as though I was in the room for some of the most emotional scenes I have ever read.
My senses were heightened by her writing, by what was going on within the story. It was as though I could smell, taste, see, and hear exactly what was happening; I wasn’t just reading the story, I was in the story. My adrenaline shot up at certain parts, I held my breath and let my tear ducts open at others, and I cried for the story being told.
Long Shot is one of the best books I have ever read, and is at the top of my list of the best reads of 2018! August + Iris are embedded in my soul for life. So, send your family out for the day and curl up with this book. It will take you on an incredible journey. Be warned, though—it packs an emotional punch with sensitive issues, so grab some tissues.
As of 03.22.18, Long Shot is available with Kindle Unlimited.
