5 “Let me protect you” Stars

Books like Hook Shot are why I read. An author’s ability to pull my inside the world they’ve created is always impressive. What Kennedy Ryan achieves is something beyond that. I want to live in this world, be friends with these characters, hang out with them on the weekends. The main, as well as, secondary characters are bold and vibrant. The story is poignant and so damn beautiful my heart hurt. I’m still all up in my feelings.

What I loved most:

I read my first Kennedy Ryan Romance three years ago and in a sea of romance stories, hers was a standout for all the right reasons. I very quickly devoured her back catalogue, have read every book since, somehow becoming a beta reader along the way. Her attention to detail and passion for making the story the very best version of itself is outstanding. I have witnessed the development of this story into absolute pure perfection with outstanding depth of character and feel of emotion. Another st

5 Tell Me Your Truth ⭐'s

Kennedy Ryan gives us an intense, raw, romantic love story.
☆ With a hero that I not only want to *kiss/lick* but I respect and admire.
☆ With a heroine that is beautiful on the outside and even more beautiful in the inside. Her compassion built strong by her own experiences.

I have found the one whom my soul loves

I love that this author is not afraid to color outside the lines and continues to

I loved, loved, LOVED every second of this book. It has everything I look for in romance. A kickass heroine, a beautifully damaged hero, complex family connections galore, steam, banter and backstory.

This story is tight, well-written and absolutely delicious.

Do not miss out on it.

I’m in a dream like state after finishing Hook Shot. Lotus and Kenan’s story pulled every emotion out of me. I’m spent, drained and so satisfied with their story which I have been anticipating for so long. Kennedy Ryan delivered and exceeded my expectations by a million. That says a lot.

Hook Shot is a delicious slow burn and oh the burn and heat is so damn good. Just simmering beneath the surface whenever Lotus and Kenan are around another. It’s sensual, it’s tantalizing and so right for Lotus a

5 I Am Yours CROWNS

Hook Shot, unlike its predecessors, has a quiet power. Kenan and Lotus’s journey isn’t shocking, in your face, controversial in nature, but it is just as consuming, just as moving. The subtle way she brings them together, heals them, is powerful. Their story is a silent pulse under your skin, building slowly and sensually, exploding into full blown love and cul

I knew it! I knew it from the first time I met Lotus and Keenan in Long Shot that they would blow my mind and be one of my favorite love stories ever.

AND I WAS SO FREAKING RIGHT!

Honestly there is so much I could say but for the sake of keeping this spoiler free and not give away too much I'm going to give you a series of random thoughts that will hopefully convey my fangirling and thoughts but not give too much:

1. Keenan and Lo have a sort of connection that you feel from the first page. I seri

Reader fact number one: It takes me FOREVER and a day to write a review for a Kennedy Ryan book. It's just something I've learned to be ok with..... the inadequacy of my words when pertaining to her work.

When you start a Kennedy Ryan book you know you're going to get an edification for your mind, a satisfying yet torturous tug to your heart and a healing for your spirit. Kennedy has every tool at her disposal but knows when and which one to use and how to use it. It doesn't always have to be he

5 AMAZING STARS for Hook Shot! K Ryan has done it once again and left me utterly speechless with this book. I had the privilege of being the "final eyes" on this book, and when I say privilege - I mean it in the deepest sense of the word. Not only does K Ryan write like a poet, but she takes so much pride in her work, and has the utmost dedication and passion for her writing. That passion shines throughout her books and her words. It is contagious, and her characters make you feel each and every ...more

My goodness! Every time. Every single time. This lady knocks me on my ass with het magnificence, with her powerful words and brilliant stories... this lady writes MAGIC. Complete and utter magic. There is no other way to describe it.

These two were magic all on their own and from the second their eyes touched each other for the first time. I am dead. Dead in love with these two. Just dead after reading their brilliant and utterly imperfectly perfect story. These two, they were i

This book was so worth the wait.

Soul searching with events from the past that structure your life.

Then that one person who can turn it upside down enters your life, do you embrace it or run?

If you’ve already read the Hoops series of books you’re already waiting for this and are aware of the characters.

Kenan and Lotus! You know there will be sparks and this is certainly what we get. Engrossed from the off, Kennedy knows how to keep us turning those pages.

This is a rollercoaster journey of emotio

Loved, loved, loved KeLo’s story!!! Books like this are why I love to read. Hook Shot is a delicious and emotional slow burn romance with exceptional characters that are so real and relatable. Kennedy Ryan is the queen of the slow burn romance and she nails it with KeLo’s story. The push and pull, the longing, the heart-tugging emotions in this story will have you rooting for Kenan and Lotus as individuals, as well as a couple. They face real-life obstacles and I felt like I was watching friends ...more

4 Pink Cloud Stars

It’s a given with any Kennedy Ryan romance there will be an abundance of love and that love will not be easily attained. Anything worth having never is as the saying goes. She writes with sensitivity and finesse on subjects that are hardly pleasant but need a voice. She creates characters that face situations any one of us could go through. She keeps it real and entertaining.

Lotus DuPree is fierceness and grace, bold and selfless with an undeniable inner strength. She is beaut

Kennedy. Kennedy. Kennedy.

I don’t know where to start....just kidding I do!

Since book 1 of this series, I’ve been drawn to Lotus. She’s a strength I can only hope to possess and a beauty that surpasses the physical. She’s an old soul in a millennials mind set, a voodoo goddess in her heart, a survivor and a fierce woman above all. Any of these should make her a must read character in this series by the masterful Kennedy Ryan. But ALL of these will put her smack on the TOP of my list of female
