Talk about mystery and suspense!! Two rival families that's been made to hate each other for so long, a love story in the making and an inevitable tragedy. I couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable read. Rae and Jack were the true stars of this messed up love affair and I loved every minute of it.

Seven years ago, Rae suffered a terrible attack and made a person go to jail. Moving back to her home town and running a clothing store with her sister, she's trying her best to move on and

All of the lights is the first book I've read by K. Ryan and it's not going to be the last. It was a book well written with lots of suspense, twists and turns. From the prologue till the epilogue it had piqued my interest and I wanted to devour it in one sitting. I was so impressed that I am still awestruck days later after I've finished this.

"There're darknesses in this world and there're lights. You're one of the lights, the light of all the lights."

This book is so much more than just a romance. There's lies, deceit, betrayal, mystery and control, just to name a few. And while yes, it's a romance book, it's not super duper lovey. I'm fine with this, but I feel like some might not be a huge fan. The only way I can think to describe it is this: in books like The Hunger Games or Divergent, there's a large elaborate story involving a

So good!!! Modern day Romeo and Juliet in South Boston. Well written, intriguing, and no explicit sex so I can share it with my high school senior students. I think the girls will LOVE this one. Full review to come!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! The mystery and the twist and turns meant I couldn't put it down - together with a love story (view spoiler)

Okay, I've decided to do this review in bullet point form because any other way you would be reading pages and pages! It is THAT good. One of the things that attracted me to this book was the title. It screamed drama and angst and edgy ~~ and then I read the blurb and #SOLD! I mean who doesn't LOVE the forbidden love trope where the forbidden does not come from the usual but from deep down generational family hatred! SIGN ME UP RIGHT NOW!!!

It's been a long time since I've been really engrossed in a book. I went into this book thinking it was the typical enemies to lovers story, but it was so much more than that and I could not put this book down. For me, it wasn't about the romance, but the storytelling and K. Ryan does a great job intertwining the themes of a Romeo and Juliet tragic love story, lies, betrayal, and family. The flashbacks in the story is what broke my heart the most. It was refreshing to read a heroine (Rae) that ...more

ARC provided for honest review: This was my first book by this author and I would definitely recommend this one. The story takes place in Boston and you don't forget it. I love when you can "hear" a voice when reading and from the "wicked" and "yah," it really made me feel like I was there. (BTW, I'm slightly obsessed with any of the New England states, so this was perfect.) The characters were likeable and believable.

This is a romantic mystery of the highest order.
There is nothing like a good old inter family feud to get the blood cells pumping, but when one component of each side are suddenly closer than is probably advisable, how will life ever be the same again?
Rae was victim to a brutal attack, one that left her traumatised and her attacker in jail…but is everything as it seems or are there darker forces at play here?
Years later Rae has returned home, trying to leave the past where is should be, behind

Okay, I first want to say thank you so much to K.Ryan for sending me a copy of this lovely book for an honest review.

I really liked how throughout the noel, you really got more of a modern vibe of Romeo and Juliette with two families at odds. And for good reasons of course! I loved how there was quite a bit of pop culture referenced within the book, as it really made it easier to relate. The connection that Rae and Jack have is

Rae has very little self-esteem since she's always been treated as an afterthought by her family. So now she's happy to live her life in the shadows. Seven years earlier, she was the victim of a brutal attack, and being coached by her father, the Mayor, she may have put the wrong person in prison. On her younger sister's birthday, Rae is talked in to going to a place that she should never frequent, and she meets Jack Flynn, to whom she feels an instant attraction to. Once she finds out who he ...more

Firstly I would like to thank K.Ryan for giving me the honour of reading and reviewing her new book. Let me just say I loved her previous books and this was no exception, if not I might have loved it a little more lol

This book has it all the mystery, the heartbreak, the drama, love, friendship, secrets, lies . It takes you on a journey and you get a little bit of everything.

It starts off with Rae Moretti, she is a shell of a person, she has many demons that she is trying to overcome but finds it

Two families—one love, destruction and broken hearts; All of the Lights by K Ryan, tells the story of an undefined romance that still conquers over the darkness.

Rae had lost it all. From her work to her boyfriend, nothing seems right for her. So what does anyone do when this happen? Pack up and get the hell out of town. She moves to Boston in hopes of making a better life for herself, after what she’s been dealing with. Doesn’t help her sister is a pain in the arse. Nothing seems to go right for

When I was offered a chance to review book by K Ryan, I jumped on the chance.
K Ryan's Carry Your Heart series was phenomenal. All of the Lights didn't disappoint either.

Your main characters are Rae and Jack.
They come from different families.
He is the enemy.
She wants to make things right.
Rae agrees to a much needed night out with her friend Bennett. She isn't thrilled about getting out because who she is.

I received this book as an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review and so happy that I did.
I had planned to read this story before being asked for an honest review as I had loved the Carry Your Heart series and this book sounded very interesting. I was not disappointed either, I love this one just as much as the others. I have already recommended this story to coworkers.

I received an advanced readers copy of this story from the author in exchange for my honest review.

I was caught off guard by this book. It is my first K. Ryan novel, but will not be my last.
The author draws you into the story, with the chemistry and the characters. It is a modern day Romeo and Juliet type story, set in Boston. This is a stand alone novel, but is definitely meant for 18+. What I loved most about the story is that no one is whom you think. We are set in Boston with Irish Southie,

Oh my God, it's like my eyes can't stop listening to your words. The story all of lights by K.Ryan is so mesmeric that I had to stop several times to absorb all of it.
So, this is the first time I am reading a book by this author and I did not know what to expect. I won an ARC of this book in exchange for a review. I am so glad that I got the opportunity to read this book.
In the book I could totally understand Rae's compulsive nature to make notes because of everything she had suffered from, it

“For the love of Stefani Germanotta, tell the damn truth” (Ryan). And the truth, I will tell! :) K. Ryan’s newest novel, All of the Lights, is an absolute delight to read. I am intrigued by the Romeo and Juliet parallels because many authors tend to overdo it in a cliche form; however, K. Ryan does no such thing. Her parallels are unique and refreshing, and they kept me on my toes not knowing what would come next. This was compounded by the fact that there are two major story lines of the past ...more

Wow! That was the perfect ending to a very twisted tale. Very poetic.

I was curious about the title originally, but having read it, the title is very fitting.

Raena will never be loved by her father, always dumped on by her sister, and constantly challenged by her best friend. These are all truths that she knows but always hopes for a different outcome.

Never one to venture far from her personal bubble, Raena is appalled at her sister's birthday request. But every the good big sister, she
